over n' out.

I still remember the phone call I received from my friend around 3 years ago. I remember not because of the importance of the subject we were into, but because of the way he ended it. You may wonder why I'm writing about that now. Nothing serious. Just wanted to make a note of the incident. At least it was a not-so-pleasant phone call.
Yesterday when I came to bed, I was just thinking about how our professions affect our everyday life. There are some people who deliberately want to 'show' the effects and others who don't. My friend falls on the former category.
'Over and Out! That is what he said that day. I hope you all know who uses these words. Aviators or Pilots! Just because he was doing the 'Piloting' course. He is such an a**. He is so dumb that he doesn't understand even people around him detest him.
I was wondering, if that was the case, what would I, being a software engineer, be using? I thought about the logic my so-dumb-of-a-human friend used. Over and Out - to end their conversation or whatever they call it. In my case, we write programs or codes. I must be using 'Return 0' (read zero) or an 'Exit 0' (read zero). Just think how funny it would be if I use that instead of a 'bye'. Someone might be writing a similar post in their blog.

you have got to be rude at times.

My email to Odyssey


I regret to say that I'm completely disappointed by your customer service. I had purchased a book online around 9 days back. And I'm yet to receive the book. It shows 'yet to deliver' and Shipped date is left blank when I checked in the Odyssey Website. During the time of purchase, the book was supposed to get delivered within 6 days.

I once again want to say that I'm very much disappointed by Odyssey and I made a mistake purchasing book thru Odyssey. This will be my first and last purchase. I just lost my Rs.330.

FYI, I even wrote a blog post about my experience with Odyssey. I just wanted to pass my experience with my friends too, so that they wont make the same mistake.

Thanks a lot for your services.

If you really mean to 'care' (as in your email id) your customers, please do respond with the status. Thanks a lot.

Hoping you would reply before the world ends.

say no to Odyssey

If you ever happen to purchase books online, please do say 'NO' to Odyssey. I have had my first and last experience with Odyssey. They have a very surprising website and all that stuff. When it comes to Customer Care or Customer Satisfaction, its a big ZERO.

I happened to read about the book here and here. I felt it interesting and I decided to buy it. I checked the price in Landmark website. Oops, very expensive. I dont know if they make books with plastic-coated papers. Then I checked it in Odyssey website. The price was reasonable compared to that of Landmark. I decided to buy it. I read a note which said 'Shipped in 5-6 working days'. Believe me, I bought the book two weeks back and still I havent received it.

When I checked my account in their website, it says 'yet to deliver'. OK. I thought I would send an email to them about my order status. I did twice. No reply. I telephoned them. FUCK! Its always number-busy. After trying for half hour, it began to ring. No answer.

Odyssey Sucks! I would better go for Flipkart. I have purchased around 10 books through Flipkart. Not even once I have had a bad opinion about them. They say 3 days and deliver it in 2 days.

Some lessons come with a price tag. With Odyssey, I paid Rs.330 to learn it.

Timeline by Michael Crichton

Time Travel and Quantum Mechanics always interested me. I have once taken a seminar on the topic 'Time Travel' when I was in college. I wanted to read 'Timeline' more than any other book when my friend told me 'Timeline' is about time-travel.

The book is really interesting. Author gives a very good picture about 'Parallel Universes' and how time travel is possible and all that. The story is about a guy, a professor, who got 'stuck' in the past and some of his students are going back to 'retrieve' him. Story doesn't actually describe how he got stuck there, though its a fact.

Scientific terms come only in a very few pages in the book. Its all about how these students survived the incidents that happened in the past and successfully brought their professor back.

All along I was thinking, why ITC (the company which invented the technology which supports time-travel) was asking these students to go 600 years back to save their professor instead of going just 2 days back and ask the professor not to enter the machine or just stop him from time-travel?

this is about a girl.

They both were from the same village somewhere in North India. They studied together. Same school, same class. So they were in college too. They were in love. But they never said that to each other. He was so madly in love with her. And one fine day, he proposed her. She felt she was on top of the world. She felt they were the only living beings on the planet.

Time went by. 7 years to be more precise. She got a job meanwhile. So did he. Luck was on their side. They worked in the same BPO company, though, unfortunately, different shifts. Still they were happy together. They stayed together. They were happily-unmarried-couples. Their intentions were pure. They wanted to get married more than anything.

Sex! That's the reason why some people like the concept of love and some people hate. Sex is an essential part of life. Its always good for a long-lasting-relationship. How about sex before marriage? Not all but few appreciate it. They belonged to those 'few'. We all know where sex-before-marriage leads. Of Course, Abortion!

He did not mean to cheat. And he never did. They were not in a position to get married at the time and raise a child. Their parents never knew about this. Though they knew about their affair and were fully supportive. They were happy again.

Until she met new-him.

Maybe the 'city culture' changed her, or her friends in BPO industry changed her, or maybe 'new-he' was so charming. As a matter of fact, he really was. 6 feet 2, heavily-built, sexy looks. Old-he never knew she was going out with him. Old-he was still under the impression that she still loved him. Until the day arrived.

New-he came to Old-he's house with her and hit him so badly with a hockey stick and warned him not to bother her. The sad part, which I felt, is the-ugly-fucking-whore was right in front of him when he was hitting him.

He was unconscious and his friends took him to the hospital. When he had enough strength to move his tongue, he asked for her. All he wanted to know is the reason why she left him. At least they loved each other for 7+ years.

PS: This is based on a real story.

The Help by Kathryn Stockett

I bought this book a year ago. And I found time only a few days back to read this book. Not that I was busy reading other books. I just got a bit lazy.

The Help by Kathryn Stockett is about 'colored maids' working for Whites. I don't know which genre will this novel fall under. But I found the book really interesting. The English used by the main characters is kind of different. Author use 'a' for both 'of' and 'to'; 'they' for 'their'; 'gone' for 'gonna'. I had to read some texts a couple of times to get the actual meaning. When I finished around 100 - 125 pages, I found the story really touching. No wonder why the author took 5 years to complete this book.

I don't really find myself interested in reading non-thriller novels. One of my friend suggested to read the book. And I don't regret reading it.

good bangalore, bad bangalore

I've been living in Bangalore since past six months. And the only thing I hate is, obviously, the traffic conditions. I read one of the blog-post which commented about the traffic conditions in Mumbai, which made me think of writing this post.

My friends at office come from very far places compared to my office-location, near Leela Palace, Old Airport Road. One of my friends come Madiwala, which is around 6 kilometers away from my office. Another friend of mine comes from Hosur, which is in Tamil Nadu. Its definitely more that 50 kilometers away from my office. The funny thing about this is, its takes both of them one hour and half to reach home. I must say Madiwala route is extremely congested with buses, bikes and Auto-Rickshaws. It sucks.

The next thing which I hate about Bangalore is their Transportation. They have lot of "Air-Conditioned" buses. But they don't have enough buses to go to those places where people really want to go. I mean, you may get connection-buses, which means you got to get down in between and catch another bus. I had to catch 2 buses from my office to go to my place which was just 7 kilometers away. I loved Chennai for their transportation facility. You can get any buses to any place from any bus-stop.

Now, most importantly, the thing which I like in here is the "Beauty" of those girls out there. OH MY GOD! I have never been to places where I saw girls better than those I have seen here. I'm not ogling at them. I just admire their beauty. I feel I can just look at them and spend my entire life. Gosh! They are so beautiful. They wear only those dresses which suits them. OK. Let me stop talking about them. I don't want this post to be never-ending.

a stranger in the mirror.

I would say this is one of the worst novels I happened to read.

Its starts with something interesting - story of a boy named Toby Temple. Side-by-side, he also narrates about a wicked mother and her daughter who, we supposedly know, is the female-lead in the story. Author just keeps the story of this girl in suspense (like bits n' pieces here and there) for quite a while and that is what, I felt, which kept me going.

However, the sad part is, the story is so predictable. The Master of Unexpected turned out to be something which was so-very-expected. I hoped for something would eventually turn out which would make my predictions wrong. But noting of that sort happened.

Verdict - the book is damn boring!

and then there were none.

Ten little Soldier boys went out to dine;
One choked his little self and then there were nine.

Nine little Soldier boys sat up very late;
One overslept himself and then there were eight.

Eight little Soldier boys traveling in Devon;
One said he'd stay there and then there were seven.

Seven little Soldier boys chopping up sticks;
One chopped himself in halves and then there were six.

Six little Soldier boys playing with a hive;
A bumblebee stung one and then there were five.

Five little Soldier boys going in for law;
One got in Chancery and then there were four.

Four little Soldier boys going out to sea;
A red herring swallowed one and then there were three.

Three little Soldier boys walking in the zoo;
A big bear hugged one and then there were two.

Two Little Soldier boys sitting in the sun;
One got frizzled up and then there was one.

One little Soldier boy left all alone;
He went out and hanged himself and then there were none.

'And Then There Were None'. I would say it is one of the best books I have ever read after 'The Da Vinci Code'. Read the poem. I was so driven to read the book after reading the poem. Its a really small book packed with full of suspense.

No words to explain. I loved the book. I'm off to read more of Agatha Christie's.

Monday, September 27, 2010


After finishing 'The Shack', I was so desperate to read to some book. I just wanted to buy some book and start reading. And then I laid my hands on 'Six Suspects'. I bought that book for two reasons. One, it was a pretty big book (for me) with almost 600 pages (so that I can be engaged for two days or so). Two, it was by the author of 'Q&A' - Slumdog Millionaire.

I must say the book lies somewhere in the middle of good and bad. The explanation about the characters seemed surprisingly lengthy and there were some parts which was not necessary at all when you consider the story. The funny part is, you will come to know about those 'unwanted' parts only when you finish the book.

The climax was superb. I kind of judged the 'ending' when I finished three-quarter of the book. But that was not the actual ending. khe khe khe...And when I thought the story was over, here comes a twist. OMG! Vikas has done some good home-work to form a climax like that. He was just playing with characters and twisting them like a maelstrom.

Its worth reading for its climax. So, give it a try.

photographers suck.

I don't usually attend marriages or some functions where people gather around, shoot questions, pull legs and things of that sort. I don't like going to temples also. Not because I hate Gods, but I hate crowd. I'm sick of it.

I have got reasons for hating marriage functions. I hate people who just come to 'EAT'. However, there are situations where you can't skip a function like that. For example, your own marriage. You cant let someone else take your place for the reason that you hate crowds.

Lately, I attended one of my cousin's marriage. And now I bagged one more reason. And that would be Photographers! Fuck them, you see. They don't let people see the ceremony. Below is a picture I took. Tell me if you can actually see the couples other than some stupid people holding their cameras? (Oops. I understand you can only see some people standing on the stage. Sorry, I had it exaggerated :D)

Click image to enlarge

I decided. I wont let even a single cameraman inside, for my marriage (Of course if I happen to marry). I will ask my cousins to take some snaps. After all what are we going to do with the albums spending thousands?

Do I have a point, dears?

reading. lately.

I happened to read a very small review about this book. I felt it interesting. However, to be frank, this book is not interesting at all. Maybe it is, for some. For me, it was not.

Its all about Gods and their conversations and stuffs like that. First 50 (or so) pages were interesting. As it went on, it was full of super-Godly-conversations and I had to read some of it a couple of times to understand what they were trying to say. And sometimes it was so boring and I just wanted to finish the book somehow, not out of interest. But I paid 500 bucks for it. I did not want to leave it unattended. can go ahead and read it if you are interested in stuffs like 'I'm living in are living in and relationship is possible for you only because it already exists within Me, within God myself...'

So the verdict - please don't spend your money on it. And I'm sure Willie is a great fan of Guess-who?

extremely useless finding.

I play cards (Microsoft Games to be exact :D) when I don't have work at office. So I've been playing this game for quite sometime. And I happened to notice something. Please don't kill me after reading this. Okay. I warn you, this is extremely useless information and not worth reading it. Seriously!

Okay. So you still want to read. I like that. Have you played MS game Solitaire? Have you ever noticed what happens when you win the game? The cards which you have arranged on their respective slots would jump out and make some nice (or weird?) design. This actually is a slow process. I mean card jumps out slow and moves away. (Please see the image for better understanding)

Now, what on earth is my 'finding'? Here it is. As I said earlier, the card moves slow. But, if you keep moving your mouse so fast, the card-motion becomes fast too. That's the information I would like to 'announce'. khe khe khe...

PS: I was striving for some topic to write on my blog. And God heard my prayers and made me move my mouse fast when I won the game. And I happened to make the most amazing discovery of all times.

lie with me.

September 2010
'I always wished to lie with you. Maye we dont desere it. You shouldn't e sad. That girl is nice. Lie happily with that girl. ye...' - This was a part of the email which was sent to him 3 years ago.

His wife happened to see this email after these many years. Guess what? Like any other girl, she thought he was cheating on her.

Verdict - They got separated.

Reason - April 2007. He still remembers his friend saying about her stupid keyboard - keys 'B' and 'V' not working.

i never knew she loved me this lot.

How do you feel when someone you love the most is getting married to someone else? I'm sure you would get hurt. At least for a second I used to think 'if she came running at the last moment...' And if it happened, that would be the sweetest and most memorable moment of my entire life and worst moment of others' lives. I've thought about stuffs of that sort. I wish I were the one who married the gal I loved the most, no matter what.

But now, situation is just opposite to what it used to be. Before, I used to think 'Why cant she come running to me?' Now, I'm supposed to be the one running.

I know someone who loves me so much. I know she wants me to marry her. Should I run-away from where I'm supposed to be, shouting 'I Love You too'? Or just leave everything to God?

and happily ever after.

Hari still remember Veena once said that she will call him after marriage and they will be friends-for-ever. Though hari never believed that. If Hari was possessive about her 'friend' and he did not want her to have other friends, how can her 'husband' not be possessive about her?

Hari is accepting the fact that 'people change'. Girls especially...after marriage. Its not their fault. Its natural. They cant help it. Even their 'name' changes. khe khe khe...

voting format is 'PFL ANOOP'

OK. This is the era of reality shows. This post is not about reality shows if you are confused about the title. These days 'SMS voting' has become very common and people spend a lot of money to vote for their favorite candidates.

I'm not a candidate here. I'm not going to dance or sing or cook but plead. PFL! (Pleading For Life)

I'm on a very important mission. D-Day is September 1 2010. I have 5 days. And I have to make the decision of my life. I need your prayers.

So, please vote for me. Voting format is 'PFL ANOOP'.

I started to developing the interest of typing-without-looking-at-the-keyboard. It has always been a mystery for me when I see someone typing so fast hovering their fingers over the keyboard. And I found out how ;) khe khe khe... Secret is to 'Learn Typing'! So, for those who are interested, please do not waste your time downloading some stupid software.

best friend's engagement.

I will tell you a story.

Two friends, one boy and a girl (lets say Hari and Veena). They met 7 years ago. They were so close that they could not even think of a day without talking to each other. They loved each other a lot. Really a lot. One fine day, she told her friend that her office-mate (Rahul) proposed her. It was kind of hard for her friend. Not because he loved her but he was so possessive about her. He could spare anything in this world, but not her and her love. He wanted all of it.

They fought a lot because of her office mate for that guy used to call or message her. One day Hari received a text message addressed to Rahul. Hari was shocked to see the message for that was not a 'friendly' message. When Hari asked about the message, she revealed the truth that she loves him.

Hari was sad from the day Veena told about her love. Hari had no choice but to accept the facts. The number of text messages Hari received reduced exponentially. He couldn't stand the changes to their friendship. In the mean time, Hari got an opportunity to go to US. He had no contacts with Veena when he was there. He got busy. She got busy too with her love.

He came back from US to know that Veena is getting engaged. He at least thought she would let him know about her marriage. But she never did. She had 'sent-to-many' an invitation-mail. He was dumbstruck. That was not the kind of email he was expecting as her invitation. But he had no choice but to wait for her call. He was so egoistic that he did not bother to call her. He wanted Veena to call him and invite him.

He thought Veena will call her the day before her engagement. But she didn't. August 19 2010, Veena got engaged. August 30 2010, Veena will get married to Rahul. And Hari is still waiting for her call.

August 10 1984! I'm...on my birthday!

I always wanted to scribble something here. I'm way too lazy than I were a few months back. I dont even feel like logging in. khe khe khe... So I guess everyone here is doing a very good job. I can see a lot of posts which I missed. I would definitely read it sometime.

I kind of started to hate myself. I have felt so cruel ever before. I miss most of my friends. Lot of changes in life. Lot of new people, lot of new incidents, lot of tension, lot of sadness...and no happiness at all. I decided not to answer any calls on my birthday. Just for a change. You know what... I dont think my friends do remember my birthday...khe khe khe...

Okay...I dont want to workout sentiments here and being empathetic of sympathy. Oh my god...what's that? Being empathetic of sympathy? Is that a correct sentence? Who cares? khe khe khe...

Finally....Many many happy returns of the day! Happy birthday to myself! Love you lots! Have fun!

in US.

I never in my life thought I would be in US some day. I always wanted to be in US when I see movies, the big buildings, ultra luxury cars and all that. Now that I'm here, I dont wanna be here even for a day. First reason - food!

First Rule: If you are a 'Veggie', US is not your place. Not that I'm a veggie but here they dont have a concept of Vegetarian. There is a special kind. 'Chicketarian - those who eat chicken alone' khe khe khe...

There are a few things which I 'found' about this place.
1. Technology - you can see the impact of technology almost everywhere in US. Even inside your bathroom.
2. People are 'huge' here not cuz they are healthy but cuz they are 'fat'. They eat chicken or turkey or beef or french fries all the time. ALL THE TIME!
3. I guess you can never find water in its 'normal' temperature. Cold is soooooo cold and hot is soooo hot (even inside the bathroom).
4. Side-walks on the road are so neat - cuz there are no people who walk. You cant live here without a car.
5. Guy who has a car is richer than the guy who has a BMW. That sounds crazy but its true. Maybe he who has a Rolls Royce is rich but not any other model.
6. You can get a car for $6000. You cant think of a bike unless you have at least $25,000.

Some pictures I clicked! May not be good... :D

This was taken at 7 PM!!!

PS: Blah blah blaaahh....

visa fuckin interview.

Okay. Probably this will be my first and last post for this month. I'm also on the verge of losing interest to update my blogs.

Few days back, I had my first every US VISA interview. I fucked it. Not that I screwed the interview. Actually my VISA got approved. But I fucked the fucking VISA formalities. My company arranged my accommodation in a hotel nearby US embassy. I was asked not to carry anything other than the file which they gave me and also my degree certificates just in case. I did exactly what they asked me to do. I dint even carry my wallet.

The guy who checks the VISA fee receipt and other details caught me saying the photo on the application is no good. My spectacle frame crosses my eye ball and for security reasons, they asked me to get another photo. FUCK! I ran back to my hotel room to get the money to take the photo.

It did not end there. I stood behind the queue again waiting for my turn. And now, the guy in the counter asked me to press my right-hand-finger-tips on god-knows-what. I pressed my finger tips as he said. Unfortunately he was a malayalee and after noticing my permanent address, he scolded me in malayalam asking to keep my hands proper blah blah blah.. I wanted to shout 'FUCK YOU!' What on earth finger-tips mean? It means finger fucking T-I-P-S. Not the whole finger. I was fucked. Thank god he dint have the authority to reject my VISA. That would be the last thing I want and the first thing he wanted. khe khe khe...

Luckily, my VISA got approved and flying to US on Sunday July 11th. OMG! My first ever travel outside India. Hope I wont screw it during the immigration check. khe khe khe...

i'm not 18. please.

Situation 1: with friends
I called my friends to invite them for my engagement. I text them too. And 99% of my friends are surprised to hear that I'm getting engaged so soon. They ask if 'Child Marriage' is still on at my place. WTF :|

Situation 2: office
My manager came to my cubicle and asked my colleague if he had any problem to go to US. She looked at me and said I obviously wont have any problem cuz I'm not married. I was like shocked to hear that. I told my manager that I'll get committed soon. She looked at me with her mouth opened. She asked 'How old am I?'

OK. Everyone wanna hear they look so young. But not me. I sometimes get so irritated to accept the fact that I look so young though I'm 26. I dont grow much of beard or mustache. Lot of people used to tease me for that. I reply to them asking to think about how they look after 10 years.

I use Santoor soap BTW. I'm feeling so lucky. khe khe khe...

the lazy me.

Will someone believe if I tell you that whatever I have written in this blog were just stories and not even a word were true? No. Nobody will trust that. But I'm in a situation to hide my blog. I wish if my blog went invisible. khe khe khe...

Dont be afraid, OK? I'm not into any terrorism or something like that. Say around a year back, one of my friend's marriage got dropped just cuz of a scrap from one of her friend. I was wondering what was there in that scrap for that matter? Hmmm.. whatever!

I'm in Bengaluru now. I dont get to update my blogs very often. I must say I'm least interested to write blogs these days. No much of work in office. Its the same since 3 yrs. I'm way too lazy than I were 3 yrs before.

Okay. Blog updated. My laziness is working. Let me stop. Would come up with some interesting topic soon. Meanwhile please pray for my blog to turn invisible before 'she' see this. khe khe khe.. I must be so courageous to write like this in here. Maybe after a year or so, I would be the one again updating my blog saying about the fights I had with her cuz of my blog. ;)

the d-day.

I'm sure you people have watched lot of movies where the gal brings tea for the guy, they exchange sights and wear a smile on their face. Today I happened to experience it. OMG! I got no words to explain the situation.

I was dumbstruck when the gal's father asked if he can ask her daughter to bring tea for us. I shook my head. I saw her coming from the kitchen with a tray with tea-cups. I looked at her for a second. She did too. I dint look at her face when she gave me a cup of tea.

I dont want to explain what all happened there but everything went good. She is fine. I'm good too. Hope everything will turn out to be good.

May 23rd, Sunday has turned out to be one of the most important days of my life. The D-Day, the day I met my 'D' (her name starts with 'D').

WTF is akshaya tritiya?

I don't understand why people are so concerned about this day. I see people rushing into the gold stores to buy ornaments. Even when people know that the price is running too high on this day, they are crazy about buying gold on the same day.

Gold stores are making a lot of money on these days. They are unnecessarily giving a hype about this 'Akshaya Tritiya', only God knows what that really is. Even I can see special programs on TV based on this 'auspicious event'. Wow! How easily medias are making the public so dumb?

marriages happen in heaven? depends.

I have never come across a situation like this in my life. I have heard of such news through my friends, through newspaper. It was one of my distant relative's marriage yesterday. And the girl ran-away with someone one day before the wedding.

The news was a shock to everyone and the groom almost lost his life. I dont know if they got to talk over phone (cuz that happens a lot these days) and get acquainted. But she honestly could have avoided this kind of embarrassment in the very last moment. What was inside her mouth when the engagement happened?

But there is a reason for her waiting till the wedding day. She eloped with all the gold her parents bought for her. Luckily, groom's parents happened to find some girl in their distant-relation and got them married on time.

Will she ever escape from the curses of those many people? Will love make people so blind? Thank God, she dint elope on the day of wedding. OMG!

where the heck is venus?

'Venus is in 7th column. Sun is in 4th column and Jupiter is in the 9th column. See, 1st column, 2nd column and these columns are all left blank. No...We cant take this horoscope, no matter how good the girl is!' they exclaimed.

I'm sure by the time I get married, I will get to learn astrology. Now I can understand how our great-elders talk astrology when it comes to a marriage. I'm surprised when I find myself looking at the horoscopes and checking for 'paapam' (technical words - cant help it :D).

I don't understand how these planets, so very millions of kilometers away from earth, affect a living being living on earth. Worst case - how it affects only those who live in India? :O

'Why are you in such a hurry to get married, Son? You will regret once you get married.' my father said winking at me and giving a I-dint-say-anything look at mom.

As a matter of fact, I'm not in a hurry to get married. I'm just 26. But I get fed up when they look at these horoscopes and reject saying Venus is in the 7th / 8th column (Chovva Dosham - technical term :D). Chovva Dosham is known to be the worst of all Doshams - God-knows-what! I keep looking for Venus when I find a horoscope. Isn't that funny? :D

I tell you, if you people go for horoscope-match, only 1 in 200 will suit yours. :P Better you find one for yourself and elope! khe khe khe...

i really am smart.

I received some text messages few days back. It was from the consultancy through which I got selected in Hyderabad-Company. Messages were kind of rude saying that I should have informed about rejecting the offer earlier. 'She' had also mentioned that she has never met such a smart and greedy guy in her life. Khe khe khe...

I take it as a compliment. In one way or the other every one in this world are selfish. But not everyone in this world are smart. So that message clearly said I'm smart. But is that the way to contact a person? Sending rude text messages?

I replied as an email saying blah blah blah stupid reasons to justify my lies. I also thanked her for calling me smart. It was kind of War-of-Words. khe khe khe... I got sudden rude-replies from her. She was complaining about my professionalism.

Fuck her! I actually wanted to copy-paste those emails here. But then I wouldn't be a professional. Actually I'm not. khe khe khe...cuz I feel I gave rude replies too :D But thats OK. She did first. Khe khe khe...

So, that's all about it. I'm gonna join Bangalore-Company on 10th this month.

PS: I know this post made no sense to anyone. I cant help it though. I'm out of my mind.

i have a situation.

I was on the verge of joining a company in Hyderabad. But few days back I got selected in a company in Bangalore. I'm confused now.
If I go to Hyderabad, I got to spend 27Hrs in train to reach Cochin. It would be 2.5 days to-n-fro. So to stay 2 days at home, I got to take 4 days leave. I can opt for flight then. But its kinda expensive. Also I got no place to stay and to take a rented house is way too expensive.
If I go to Bangalore, it just take 12 hrs to reach home. Train charges are affordable. I got lot of relatives there and I can stay there. I can save some money also though Bangalore is expensive than Hyderabad.
Now I'm hunting for some reason to tell Hyderabad company that I'm not joining there. :((

people change. gals especially.

I thought my friendship with her will never end. She did change. Like any other girl. I dont know whats happening to me. She got no reason to tell him when I talk to her. She dont wanna fight with him saying she is talking to her best friend.
Wishing her all happiness in this world.

for you, with all heart...on April 21

Many Many happy returns of the day! Happy Birthday!

This birthday is special. First birthday after fixing your marriage, First birthday since I started writing this blog and so on and on... Let this birthday be special for you in all ways.

I never thought I would wish you like this, thru my blog. I always wanted to call you at 12 at nite to be the very first person to wish you. But this time I'm skeptic about it. Will you like it? You would be expecting his call at 12, right? :D

I thought we would always be best friends. We used to say it most of the time. But we 'just' say it. you drew an invisible line between us. I have to think twice before I say something. You got no time to listen to me.

Wishing you all the happiness in this world! Love you! I miss you!

this does exist.

I'm completely out of my mind these days that I forgot that I got a blog to update. I thought I will stop writing blogs also. But this is my only entertainment these days. I mean reading other blogs. I can feel the difference in me. I used to comment on other blogs and I used to reply for the comments I receive.

What now? I dont care about anything happening in my life.

People change. And so did I.

i wanna be alone.

I deleted my Orkut account. I'm more than happy for having deleted it cuz I don't need any friends.

I had a time in my life where I used to spend time with my 7 cats at home. I loved them a lot. Really a lot. I always wanted them to be with me. But all of a sudden, I started to losing them. Some ran away. Two of them died right in front of my eyes. I (mercy) killed one cuz she met an accident and that was the bestest thing we could do to her. I cried a lot that day. Then we decided not to grow anymore pets at home. Its not cuz we don't love them or we don't care for them.

We may not be able to withstand when we feel that we lost them or when we know that we will lose them. Better not to have any than having one now and regretting later.

And for that matter, I don't need any friends. Not anymore!

love n' time.

Once upon a time, there was an island where all the feelings lived: Happiness, Sadness, Knowledge, and all of the others, including Love. One day it was announced to the feelings that the island would sink, so all constructed boats and left. Except for Love.

Love was the only one who stayed. Love wanted to hold out until the last possible moment.

When the island had almost sunk, Love decided to ask for help.

Richness was passing by Love in a grand boat. Love said, "Richness, can you take me with you?"
Richness answered, "No, I can't. There is a lot of gold and silver in my boat. There is no place here for you."

Love decided to ask Vanity who was also passing by in a beautiful vessel. "Vanity, please help me!"
"I can't help you, Love. You are all wet and might damage my boat," Vanity answered.

Sadness was close by so Love asked, "Sadness, let me go with you."
"Oh . . . Love, I am so sad that I need to be by myself!"

Happiness passed by Love too, but she was so happy that she did not even hear when Love called her.

Suddenly, there was a voice, "Come, Love, I will take you." It was an elder. So blessed and overjoyed, Love even forgot to ask the elder where they were going. When they arrived at dry land, the elder went her own way. Realizing how much was owed the elder,

Love asked Knowledge, another elder, "Who Helped me?"
"It was Time," Knowledge answered.
"Time?" asked Love. "But why did Time help me?"
Knowledge smiled with deep wisdom and answered, "Because only Time is capable of understanding how valuable Love is."

PS: Just a forward mail I received today.

you are not her.

I never thought this would happen to me. Can people change like this within such a short period of time? Marriages happen in heaven. So where does these engagements happen? In a hospital or something? How can these people forget their friends so soon?

She used to have lot of time for me. Not now. She got engaged and time is all gone. They are on phone most of the time. Obviously, they gotta be and let them be. But at least they cant they spend a couple of minutes for their friends?

Family, friends or relatives or even God standing next to them is not a problem when they talk to the one they gonna marry. But when he or she sees a friend's message, the reply is 'Hey...ppl around me. Msg you l8r'. Irony was I had just seen her mobile on waiting for more than an hour.

I never thought this would happen to me. Its all gone. They are in a dream-world now. He is the only person visible there.

PS: I dont know. I'm done with this. I cant suffer this anymore. Even God isn't interested in my worries and how can I expect a friend to resolve this?

i got fucked at 3 in the mornin.

I'm tensed. My heart is beating so fast that I can feel its pressure on my eyes. I'm not feeling sleepy. I've never prayed to God before the way I did today. All I wanted was to fall asleep. God never listened to my prayers. He never will. He thinks I'm cruel. And so am I.

I'm fucked. I never understood the value of a girl friend till 11.10 PM yesterday. Now I do. Please. I'm not desperate to find a girl friend. Read it again. I understood the value of one.

I wanna write a lot many things but running out of words. I don't know. I don't believe in God. I will never ever pray again. Not in my life.

Now the time is 3. 03 AM. Time to stop this shit. Bye!

i'm no good at heart.

Having hurt by someone in the past doesn't mean that you can expect some good in the future. You will be punished for all mistakes you did. It took really long time for me to understand this fact. I used to expect good things to happen in my life but I never did something good.

I hurt almost everyone who loves me. And keep loving them more and more. It was too late by the time I figured out that I was actually hurting them even more. I just thought I was loving them.

Another funny fact about me is, I keep saying what mistakes I did. And I think I eventually will escape from being punished just because I accepted my mistake. Accepting the mistake doesnt mean that I don't deserve the punishment.

I'm done. I can feel my future.

Saturday, April 3, 2010

i dont deserve to be happy.

Not a single incident happened in my life which would make me really happy or which I would love to happen. My sixth sense started to working.

When I have a strong positive feeling about something, then I can be fucking sure that it will end negatively. And vice versa.

happy birthday email...on April 1st.

It was not too tough for me to remember that email which I received 8 years back for it just had 'Happy Birthday to you on April 1st'. I was kind of shocked to read that email. I had just sent her a blank email on March 31st. She was actually my friend's girl friend ;)

I dont want to get into the story part of it. I just wanted to refresh my memories about her. She was once my very best friend. She got married and our friendship ended just like that. Our friendship would have turned 8 years old if she were with me now. Hmmm...

PS: This 'New Editor' sucks!

i wont cry again.

I never happened to know the importance of creating a profile in matrimony website until I created one today. I never in my dreams thought I will create a profile. My parents wanted me to create one for their ease.

OK. This post is not about explaining my experience after creating the profile. I hope you are aware about my previous post of my best friend getting married. So it's almost done. I wish you all happiness in this world. My parents phoned today evening.

I talked to Mom then. I told her that my best friend is getting married. My mom went silent. She knew I loved her. She had no words to say. She asked me not to take it to heart. I wanted to shout out of pain. I started to developing a habit of taking deep breaths when I'm sad, tensed or angry. I controlled my maximum but I couldn't stop tears rolling down my cheeks. I dint make a sound. Hope Mom dint notice. I have to accept the facts, no matter how worse it is.

I promise, that was the last drop of tear to shed from my eyes. I wont cry again.

PS: March 28, 2010 has turned out to be a very important day in my life. BTW, March 29 is one of my friend's birthday. Wish you all success in life. Many many happy returns of the day!

if i'm not wrong.

I received a text message from my friend. It was about the difference between 'Best Friends' and 'Lovers'. It said 'A true friend is always one step ahead than a lover'. Very true!

She was tryin to console me saying that I would never be alone even after her marriage. I dont think anything right nowadays. She missed a very important point. The message said a best friend is one step ahead than a lover. But many steps lower than that of a husband.

Thursday, March 18, 2010

Just to keep this day, March 18 2010, in my mind for it was a beautiful day. After waiting for more than a month, I got a gift from my best friend. I dint get kissed though (as the picture suggests). But it was as precious as a 'kiss'.

not friendship. not love.

We are the 'bestest' friends you can ever find on the planet. I fall in love with you every now and then. But then, when I fight for silly reasons, I think I can never love you the way I did before. Again, when its all over, I used to wonder if I can, ever, be angry on you.

Our relationship is beyond words. Like I said, you cant find the word 'bestest' in a dictionary.

PS: I...I don't know.

waiting for 'capital punishment'.

Have you ever been happy and sad at the same time? Today I happened to experience it. The news almost took my breath away. This is just the beginning. All I fear is, if this is just the beginning, how worse would be the end?

yours forever, hopefully.

My bestest friend is gonna get married. I was just thinking how I'm gonna survive without talking to her. I have heard girls change after marriage. I hope it wont be the case with my friend. But sometimes I get so jealous over the one who is gonna marry her. I don't know. I don't want her to love someone else. I know its of no use saying. I know one day I will be out of her mind. She will start loving her husband. I dint mean to say that she will forget me, but eventually the 'love-factor' will degrade.

So, before she stops loving me, let me stop it. I wont call or message her after her marriage. Perhaps she will miss me. Let her. I'm gonna miss her too anyway.

I'm wondering how many people would be there in this world like me. But nobody can help it.

PS: I dint mean to say that people will lose their best friends after marriage. There are exceptional cases also. I just fear that I may lose her after her marriage. Its well and good if I dint. But what if i do lose her? It may take the breath out of me. I'm sure gals wouldn't need their best-friend after marriage like the way they needed him/her before marriage. This post maybe the biggest blunder I have ever written in my blog. I'm sorry. I just wanted to write this down somewhere.

some company-policies suck.

Formal dress from Monday to Thursday. Business Casuals on Friday. This is the dress-code most of the companies follow. And so do my company also. Business Casuals doesn't include round-necks. I dint know that. In fact, I dint know the one I wore was a round-neck. As you may see in the picture, the t-shirt is not having a collar. But I 'thought' still it wasn't a round-neck :((

I got inside the company as usual. Company has hired security-personnel and they do intense scrutiny to check if the employees are following the dress-f*ckin-code. Securities are there everywhere, near the lift, near the staircase, near each and every door entrance. I crossed the main entrance and nobody stopped me. I wasn't lucky enough for long. The security on the 2nd floor caught me and he called another guy who was on the first floor. He also did a thorough check-up just like a bomb-squad does. Security-head asked me to go change the dress. F*CK!

I thought of 'half-a-kilometer walk in the hot sun' to go back to my room and change. I had to do it. They made me do it.

Thursday, March 11, 2010

so, will that help?

One of my colleague is gonna get married. Today he came to me and asked for my help.

'I don't know how to talk to girls. And I need your advice. I know you are an expert.' He said.

I was shocked to hear that. But I dint show it. ;) khe khe khe... Ok. Jokes apart. He explained the situation. He phoned his girl few days back and his call was on waiting. He tried to call her 2-3 times. But still it was on waiting and she dint bother to cut it and call him back. He, obviously, got tensed. After sometime she called him but he refused to answer. She kept calling for sometime and finally he answered.

SPLASH! THAMAAAR!! BANG!!! *he shouts, she cries blah blah blah...*

So, this is a problem with guys mainly. They get possessive very soon. In fact, guys fall in love very soon. And for that reason, they get possessive. I guess girls do like it, thought they wont expect guys to shout at them. I told this to my friend. His facial expressions clearly said he dint understand a word! I made it simple.

'Next time when you see her number busy, just tell her that her voice is so cute and he don't want others to hear her sweet voice.' I said.

PS: I've a best friend. One day she will also get married. So what if her guy asks her not to talk to me saying the same dialogue, maybe after reading my blog :O I cant stand that. Now the question is, will I ask my girl not to talk to others??? :D

PPS: I'm wondering why the hell he said I'm an expert in talking to girls. Seriously! :O :D And sorry if you people think the title, picture and the blog-post are no way related to each other (on earth) :D

hope this idea will work :D

Me: OK. Hi... My name is Anoop. I've been watching you since last...hmmm I dono. You know, you look beautiful and maybe that's the reason I got attracted to you. I don't wanna take risk loving you just cuz you are beautiful. On the other hand I don't wanna lose you also for maybe you are good at heart too. I hope you are not committed. I wont be in this company for long. My last date here is April 16. So don't fear that I would be following you all the time. I wont ask your mobile number also. You can just drop the idea if you feel I'm not lucky enough to be your friend. So, can we be friends?

Girl: Oh my God! Who are you?!

Me: Sorry, I dint mean to give a shock or make this conversation this lengthy. I dint rehearse this and this is my first time.

Girl: Hmmm... What's your....?

Me: Wow! Thanks! My ID is 2*4*4*!

PS: This is a complete fiction. I saw this girl in the cafeteria and I was just dreaming how it would be if I just give her a shock like that. :D Will she respond the way that girl did in my dream? :P

PPS: Thanks to MS Office Communicator. Employees across the company can chat each other using their employee ID.

this thing filters my sleep.

I hope you people can see the 'electric-plug' and an 'electric-switch' in the picture. That's the water filter fitted next to my room. For obvious reasons, I cant blame those who think that the 'switch' is for the water-filter. At first, I also felt the same.

But actually, that's for my calling-bell. So when people come to get water, press the switch thinking that the filter is switched off. There are people who come and carry water at night also. And now I can tell you how many new people take a room in my floor for that's the only water filter in my floor :| I even have a count of how many of them take water at night.

I wanted to make some marking on the switch to let people know the switch is for my calling-bell. Cuz sometimes it spoils my sleep too. I can afford taking my life, but not my sleep. Now, I'm used to it. I wait for sometime to hear the next bell. I want to make sure that there are people outside wanting to see me. :D

PS: I wanted to write this post long back. But everyday morning I will forget to take the picture but today I kept a reminder :D

Wednesday, March 3, 2010

choose wisely. live well :P

This is not 'Tele-Brands Advertisements' Okay! :D

I was having food in the cafeteria in the evening. One of my friend was saying his story of fighting with his girl-friend. Fight started with a 'photo'. This guy asked his girl to send her photo so that he can see her anytime. She refused.

'Why? I'm not gonna rape your photo!'. He said, proudly :P

Wow! What-a-dialog! Obviously no man on the planet can 'rape' a 'photo'. But the word 'rape' is the problem now. He just wanted to say something for the sake of saying something. But I guess that word is not there in her dictionary (should have checked it before buying it :D). She shouted at him and cut the call.

'Gals are dumb!' I exclaimed! But I knew what she said is also a point. Gals are sensitive to words. But its hard to guess which are those words.

Another friends who dint have a chance to speak yet came up. 'Choose words wisely. Once said, it cant be taken back.' He said.

I thought and thought and thought and said, 'So is a missed-call :P'. khe khe khe...

i came home to sleep.

I haven't slept properly for a while. I dont get to sleep properly when I'm in Coimbatore. I will go to bed at 12 or probably 12.30 after spending sometime talkin to my friends and then go to bed. Gotta wake up by 8.30 minimum to reach office at 10, though my office starts at 9.

Following this timing throughout a month left me with lot of sleeplessness and anyone could easily spot it looking into my eyes. After waiting for a month or so, I came home hoping to sleep till 11 in the morning.

Today morning Mom came to wake me up at 8.30. According to her, 8.30 is too late. I ignored her scoldings and slept again. I tried to get her sympathy saying about my work at office and my tensions though I dont have any work at all ;). She came at 9 to cal me again. I ignored that too. But she came with a glass of water and poured into my eyes. I ignored. Thanks to Mom again for training me (how to sleep even when someone sprinkle water into my eyes) these many years. She did that twice.

Now, its a warning. She gives only two chances and if I dint get up by then, she will use her ultimate trick. Her weapon is still water, but this time she is gonna attack my ears. OMG! That's her last resort. Just a single drop. It will wash away a week's sleep and I will jump off my bed. She gives me a cute smile as if nothing of that sort happened and I love her for that :D

PS: Unit of time (in this blog) is 'AM'... khe khe khe...

i'm in a deadlock.

I never thought we could stay separated for this long. When I try to come closer, you push me away. And you are expecting me to solve this?

It’s like you locked the door from inside and asking me to get in without touching the door.
