3rd day on the job (read:internship :D)

so our internship has begun.

just the third day and you could say it spells fun.working under deadlines,given certain responsibility,seems so exciting,for now atleast,as we havent yet assigned anything.

our first day we were asked to read the details about the project and then since they dont like working on weekends,said,"come back on monday,then we shall have work for you! ):-]"

the facilities given to us are unlimited coffee/tea,subsidised food,which i think is good(taste wise),rest of them ,i havent found out yet.

plus you get to strut around with those plastic cards,which reads out "Associate",makes you feel like an important person ;),kinda like thedyood,tcs :D

well all in all,it is exciting.

coffee breaks will be a much more frequent event now ;).may be now i will understand the real deal behind "coffee breaks/water breaks" working in a corporate house.

tales of the barberland

dec 6th,2005

well ....argh....i must admit ...lethargy has empowered me.....took me three days to muster up the strength to write this.

i guess this is going to change....after having secured internship at a corporate house.....the life i am leading now ,would be a mere fancy.

exams rocked! dunno why ,but they went nice this time around.

i think i have to tread very softly this semester ,with the prying eyes of the big boss on me and my friend.

one of the few amusing anecdotes i have heard in few days was on seinfeld.....

went something like this : men are obsessed with clevages as women are with shoes.

i took a survery totalling one individual and turns out seinfeld was good at observations!

this one happened to me in the barber shop.though my hair was decently medium size(for others hardly any) ,to kill time i walk to a barber shop.

now this guy makes full use of his shop..... to get a sneak peek at the girls passing by! what were you thinking ?

i was worrying ,because of his distraction ,he wouldnt mess up with my hair.fortunately his scissors were resting.

after that,one of his chums drops by.they begin a conversation.
funny how people use different techniques to identify people.

my barber friend here was asking his you know that guy?
his friend says ,"yea that splendour fellow".
barber says ,"no he has an activa",
friend,"oh ,must have changed the vehicle",
barber goes,"heh,you dont know that guy ..... ok tell me ,what is his hair style?"

i stumbled after hearing this....

i aint gonna go there again.... he asked me at the start "saheb,kaisi cut karvani hai?" ,to which i reply,"thode chhote kar dena...aur kuch nahi" and replied "ji saheb".

but that wasnt the end of his questions.....dozen followed....and i couldnt get his tongue ....and thats when i decided i had enough of his antics...he was a total nutcase! throughout my session he was continuously jabbering on and on.......

i dont have thing more to scribble so....i will get back to you asap,dont try to call me ,i will call you ;)

home at last.

and with some splendid news that made my cheek muscles go overtime,by laughing ,grinning,your synonym for happiness here ! :)

the reason? well FYI today was the last theoritical exam of my engineering degree(bachelors!).and i am glad i am done with it.

throughout my 7 semesters i have given about umm...some maths invovled here ...... scribble....scribble....scribble....erase...erase....verify with calculator ...... blink ...blink..... tada...the answer is 179 with 6 more to go(vivas).

quite a big sum huh!

this exam however things were different.i usually didnt have the crave to study and this time around surprisingly neither did my roomies.

pure fun!
6 people focusing on just one subject a day,the course was bound to get completed in the given constraint of time .but we couldnt! though we did manage to complete an appreciable portion of course ,dedicating about 8 hours to sleep :D

todays exam was ,in my view a bit complicated ,as in,strenuous!we as usual didnt complete the course :D but the catch was 2 of my roomies were worried about failing in this paper.

yup there you have it,life was never so easy! they learnt and taught,atleast one of them did(taught)!

so all in all ,exams were never this fun! (not cause we wanted to give exams,you rash concluders)

and to top it off,i secured my internship at a reputed company and along with a huge chunk of my collegemates.its going to be a mini-college there!

so that gypsy was right,the planet did finally manage to find its way out to the right place!
good times are here people....truly good times!

so lemme bask in its warm glow and splendour ....ahhh...

word power made easy?

many people ,for instance at my college, especially after entering the 7th semester have this craving to improve their english(nothing wrong there),but it almost seems as if it is natural,as though they are ticked by some biological clock,like the salmon migrating to the artic.

you really get amused when you find a tongue blurting out weird english words,which 6 months earlier couldnt speak plausible english(with all due respect).

for such ardent/zealous(to the above group:are the words sophisticated enough?you would see ten synonyms penned down by their hands in a jiff,if not and your only expression would be a gasp characterized by a huge 'HUH?'), bunch of people here is a challenge to tickle their memory and their new found ability to pronounce weird words.

i was searching the web as i had nothing to kill time with,so here is what i ended up with:words,words that will make you go,"where in the world did that come from?is that even a word?"

here are some of them:

Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious ->fantastic idea

antidisestablishmentarianism->opposition to the disestablishment of the Church of England(this one happens to be the most famous one of the lot)

floccinaucinihilipilification->dont even want to know about it


pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis->lung disease caused by something(what were they thinking ,while naming it,the poor patient!)

ok a bumper :
Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch .

guess what? its a name of a village in Wales.

and if you were afraid of these words or words of such category ,you would suffer from :
Hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia ->fear of long words

spell them out and once you make it out alive, i guess saying out ,"she sells sea shells on the sea shore ",would be a cake walk.

ok.....i guess this was a boring blog....but just wanted to type something


too many freaks ,too little circuses!

gypsy queen

alright..... you know gypsies....yea the clan which enjoys the most number of myths assosicated with it.

and one of the very famous ones is their innate ability to predict the future! ;)

so i come across one such lady,with the facial features of a typical gypsy crooked nose,with a zit on it,scarf around her hair,circular earrings on her ears (where else!)etc...

she had a setup of a table with a "magic crystal ball" .so i go in to get my future read.

the crystal ball started showing its stuff as the gypsy started moving her hands above it.

she said ,"you are in luck,your career will improve from october 26th".
i said ,"what?"

she said,"your career will improve from october 26th".
i said,"huh ", o_O

she asserted,"your career prospects will improve from october 26th as some planet ,name forgotten is coming to some place/position and thats why you are in luck."

i asked ,"are you certain about it ?"

to which she gave a look as though i had committed a blasphemy and said,"the crystal ball is never wrong,dont challenge its word!"

happy and gay ;) (you bunch of perverts! ) ,i pay the gypsy the fee and usher myself out ,thinking ,"lets see,what is in store for me"

todays date is nov 12th.

i am expecting news from two companies since a week,no progress there.
i got rejected in the aptitude test of a company.(hey i aint judging you! :P)

good career prospects my @r$e! ;)

i dont see anything good happing here.

seems like that dim witted planet has taken up a wrong road and reached somewhere else or way too lazy move its behind to that place ,though it might be right in front of it(too much junk in the trunk ,i guess)

lousy planet! $@!@^$%^#$%$#@%#$
lousy drunken gypsy!

moral of the story: trust a candy from a stranger,never trust a prediction from a gypsy. ^_^

hotel california

"On a dark desert highway,
Cool wind in my hair....."

well i am quite certain that you would have heard this famed song-"Hotel California-Eagles".

yup it is an all time classique.yet there is something very mysterious about this famed song.there is even a reason behind naming its album -"Hell Freezes Over".

first about the album.the band members were having a fued amongst themselves and one of the was quoted ."we would get back together ,when hell would freeze over",implying that it would never happen ,as hell is visioned as a place with fiery flames and heat.

but eventually they got together and they named the album -"Hell Freezes Over".

hotel california has rustled up some leaves as well.

there are many theories behind the theme of the that i came up with was,the gold rush in the 1950s in california.everybody was clamouring to get their share of did i conclude?

Up ahead in the distance,I saw a shimmering light

But this wasnt justified enough.

The second theory talks about satan,drugs etc. and here's how

So I called up the Captain,
'Please bring me my wine'
He said ,"We haven't had that spirit here since 1969"

1969 was the year when the first satanic church was built and they registered it as 'Hotel California'.wine is an important symbol of the blood of Christ for Catholics and many christain denominations.the 'spirit' refers to to the Spirit Of Christ had not been present since 1969,upon the organization of the more alibi to this fact is an another part of the lyrics:

They stab it with their steely knives,
But they just can't kill the beast

Last thing I remember, I was
Running for the door
I had to find the passage back
To the place I was before
'Relax,' said the night man,
We are programmed to receive.
You can checkout any time you like,
but you can never leave!

the beast in bible is refered as yours truly "satan".and he is considered immortal.also once you join a satanic cult,you can never leave it!

this one relates to drugs:

Warm smell of colitas, rising up through the air
Up ahead in the distance, I saw a shimmering light
My head grew heavy and my sight grew dim

refers to burnt smell of marijuana,and after consumption ,he became dizzy and hence vision blurred .

other theories suggest that ,hotel california was a place haunted with ghosts and they were only alluring the weary traveller to come up to the place and after which they would devour him,and one discusses it being a viewpoint of a long term inmate of a mental hospital(really weird!)

however ,the artists had this to quote (i think):

"The real Hotel California is not a place;it is a metaphor for the west coast music industry and its effect on the talented but unwordly musicians who find themselves ensnared in its glittering web."

there also is a hotel california,the one shown in the pic is of 1950s,in Todos Santos, a town on Mexico's Baja California peninsula.Though the hotel shares its name with the song,it however has no relation as the Eagles say ,they have never been there,and were unaware of it!

whatever the weird concotions may be,this song has truly etched itself in history.the work, lyrically and musically has appeased every soul!

well i hope you enjoyed this piece of information,if you call it information,as for me,i am going to listen to it right now.

pz out.

time was when chetan bhagat was brewing up his first book -"5.someone" and sent it to the publishing houses ,and when it landed on my hands and which made him an instant icon to all the bunkers in india and abroad(though most of it was characterized by fiction,nevertheless,wasnt pulp fiction either)

page after page,it revealed the notorious >:) escapades of the trio .they enjoyed life to the fullest ,taking as it came,booze,bunks....they lived it good!

well after i was done with the book,i pondered ,"they have something to remember by for the rest of their lives",i too,in a way like the countless others was inspired by the book,not to indulge in any notorious escapades,but to do something that would be emblazened in my memory for the rest of my life.

little did i know,my prayers were answered!by satan.

i screwed up my 6th semester,or so people say,i have no regrets.had one funny escapade.i was a proud member of brotherhood of bunkers -a fictious group made up by us bunkers and yet manage to elude the ever stretching claws of the detain list.

then came the dreaded 7th was kewl,kalm and kasual as you would have wanted it to be.bunks were regular,life graph showed a gain in the fun area and marks were being scored on a decent level.what more could a guy ask for......

then ...dawned the dreaded last week of the semester!this week spectated a flurry of events and clearly outlined the people with a stable mentality and those under clinically insane!

the last week summed up for the entire college period ,i guess.and now when i think of it,i can only break a and my pal , for sure wont forget that week for the rest of our lives,a harrowing week.

"5.someone" had a happy ending.....well this story is yet to have one.but in a way,i guess i already have ,with great friends by my side.

so as you finish reading this,ask your self ,"what have you done ,to remember the college days?" and you will start thinking!

so you want to just an another brick in the wall,or a 5.someone who lives by his own rules!

your call....

call of duty @ LoC

earth grew angry again and she displayed her wrath by a colossal earthquake,which cast a shadow of doom upon everyone.

the epicentre was in pakistan.regions near it were severely affected as well.

well now,why is a recapitulation of the news?i dunno,just like that!i had read an article in the week ,which prompted me to pen it down here.

the article talked about the devastating earthquake(obviously),then it turned to the rehabilitation part.this event occured so close to the dreaded LoC(it affected parts of India too) ,that it forced the involvment of both the countries-two warring nations.

the indian defence was swift in action and started the rescue had done it job par excellente(the indian army is considered to be the best diaster management agency).remarked an affected villager,there had been no army on the "other" side of the border.seemed like they deserted the dead and the injured ,right when they needed help.

little activity was shown from their side.the pakistan high commissioner aziz ahmed khan called up our prime minister mammohan singh to tell him that he was worried that india would play the propoganda war,to which the latter comforted him with no.

a sore point however was pakistan's rejection to india's proposal to send soldiers to the other side of the LoC to search for victims.they say nobody lives at the LoC,but reality speaks otherwise.

the indian defence refused to comment on the rescue operations on the other side(they hadnt seen any).quoted was one air force officer,"we didnt talk to them before bringing our helicopters so close to the LoC,neither did they protest or query".

we are talking about an area where even a truck from the other side seen close enough is open for gun this very area sees convoy bringing in supplies.

the helicopters are allowed till 1km to the LoC and fighter crafts till 5k.m. The brigadiers who were constantly on the watch for an enemy movement were now constantly in touch ,sharing information about the rescue operations.

one thing we are forgetting over here arent we.yes,the militants,what about them?this area is the fertile grounds for them.they too havent been spared.much of their infrastructure has been damaged and now they are on the run.

there have been no militant ambush of any sort,for if they did,they would betray the motive they were working for(to give the villagers their rights,is what they say) and then the villagers would go against the militant activity has been an all time low.

suprisingly the united jihad council,an amalgam of the militants has ordered them to go for rescue operations.a militant was blurting out orders for rescue operations through a satellite phone.strange developments!said the militant ,"we are fighting a different kind of jihad by helping people in the hour of need."

a host of other rescue missions are also underway,but i wanted to put the spotlight on the behaviour of the two nations.

along the line,where going stray would spell death,through the hidden bunkers were the watchful eagle eyes monitoring your every breath,today is seeing a different act all together.

perhaps this earthquake was meant to be.if the nations couldnt settle through a dialogue,guess somebody else took the matter into his/her/its own hands and so far ,it seems ,everything is going according to plan.

it had a heavy bill though!

the dragon slayer

this is a story.
a fiction.
has nothing chained with reality.

aeons ago,where the sword spoke of the valor and charisma of the knight and dragons roamed freely ,there lived a group of knights.amongst the group was a dark knight.this dark knight was enchanted by the damsels of the jilted he would pimp any of his trustworthy friends to place himself in the limelight of the fair damsels and gain their acceptance,which he was furiously trying to gain ,with little progress.

now....the scene goes to a tournament held by the lord of the land.anyone who wanted to come in the eye of the crowd and the lord had to participate here.and so did every knight,including the dark knight who wanted to woo the damsels.also participating were another group of knights who were known for their dexterity in handling the sword.

the dark knight ,by hook or crook ,wanted to win the tournament .so he decided to trap a fellow knight and win the match.however a white knight got a whiff of this and reported it to the higher authorities.

this white knight was a friend of the black knight.but justice be done ,he duly reported what he knew of.enraged the officials disqualified him from the tournament and this caused him(the black knight) public humiliation.

wounds fresh,the black knight decided to reply -eye for an eye or two eyes! blood of the white knight would only quench his revenge!

the black knight contacted a nacromencer and he concocted a potion which would drug a dragon to heed the orders of the drugger.he also poisoned the ears of the damsels against the white knight and in rage the damsels ordered a strict punishment to the white knight.

the white knight was oblivious of these developments and was practising for his match the next day.a messenger ,a close aide of the white knight told him of this.his skin grew pale and gaped on how to deal with this.the move was to be made by the black knight and all the white knight could do ,was defend of all possible deathly moves.

he tried to talk to the black knight and the damsels but his talk fell to deaf ears.he could never hold up against the drugged dragon and the score of knights coming for him.

in this hour of need,all his close aides viz.the blue knight and the red knight and the green knight teamed up and encouraged the white knight.

the white knight backed up by his aides drew their swords,which glistened in the moonlight ,and showed the poor dragon a brutal death.

the next target was the black knight who was commanding a regiment.this was a helpless situation.the 4 knights were utterly helpless against a huge army.

the white knight decided to negotiate with the black one with an offer to take his place in the tournament ,again no use!

serendipitously ,the damsels got a whiff of the insidious plot of the black knight.the news reached the white knight ,and the black knight as well.

with a war cry that would shudder all the corners of the earth,the white knight along with his close aides marched upto the black knight was given 2 choices. give up peacefully use force

seeing the tides turning against him,the black knight gave up .he was osctrasized from the land and died due to lonliness.

what happened to the white knight ,the damsels,and the other aides of the white knight?

they became friends ,closer friends and peace prevailed !

think this is a corny story,people i know wont swing that way ;)

i like writing stories.
this is no different.




hmpf.... it is

due to severly unforeseen circumstances ,my earlier blog had to be stripped off from the net.

it sure stirred up a quiet riot!

a sad thing to happen,many memories too got eroded due to it.

no matter!

as the phoenix rises from the ashes ,so shall this blog!

so in the spirit of my previous blog ,


keep watching this space for more ;)
