Sea is Calling

Presto ! What does one need on a weekend? A "roka" to attend :)
Five Guys and a Car to boot and Ola , we go to Chennai tonight
and then off to Ocean :)

I wanted this break badly, since she ll be going to Mussourie with her
friends before she starts going to new organisation she has just
joined and it would have been a drab weekend without a call from her.

What am I gonna take with me?
Books
Pair of Bermudas
Jeans
Chappals
Pair of Undies
Swimming Trunks
Camera (if Hari is willing I ll get his HandyCam as well)
and a resolve that next time I make plans for vacation She shud be
there as well :) Amen to that!



Toilet Buddies

Garre,Pasu,Sree,Prasanna, Sukriti(No we dont have unisex toilets yet but she passes (sic) by us
wheneva we go for leak).

I think going to toilet in droves relaxes people at large(sic again), plus a project team which
"pisses" together stays together :) however I hate when Raol goes for his call, this guy is 6' 2" !!

Bas!@#$! Ofcourse I am pissed off

Song I have been listening to for last 60 hours :)
King of Wishful Thinking (Rod Stewart)


I dont need to fall at your feet

Just cause you ve cut me to the bone

And I wont miss the way that you kiss me

We were never carved in stone



If I dont listen to the talk of the town

Maybe I can fool myself



I ll get over you

I know I will

I ll pretend my ship s not sinking

And I ll tell myself I m over you

Cause Im the king of wishful thinking

(King of wishful thinking)

I am the king of wishful thinking



I refuse to give into my blues

Thats not how its gonna be

And I deny the tears in my eyes

I dont want to let you see, no, no



That you have made a hole in my heart

And now Ive got to fool myself



I ll get over you

I know I will

I ll pretend my ship s not sinking

And I ll tell myself Im over you

Cause I m the king of wishful thinking



I ll get over you

I know I will

I ll pretend my ship s not sinking

And I ll tell myself I m over you

Cause I m the king of wishful thinking

(King of wishful thinking), yeah



Oh, I ll never, never, never shed a tear for you

I ll get over you

I know I will




If I don t listen to the talk of the town

Then maybe I can fool myself



I ll get over you

I know I will

I ll pretend my ship s not sinking

And I ll tell myself I m over you

Cause I m the king of wishful thinking

(King of wishful thinking)

I m the king of wishful thinking



I ll get over you

I know I will

You made a hole in my heart

But I wont shed a tear for you

I ll be the king of wishful thinking



I ll get over you (over you)

I know I will

I ll pretend my heart s still beating

Cause I ve got no more tears for you

I m the king of wishful thinking



I ll get over you (over you)

I know I will

You made a hole in my heart

And I ll tell myself I m over you

Cause I m the king of wishful thinking


1984


I was five years old then when mayhem struck in so called hindi heartland, I can always point
Anti Sikh riots as one turning point as far as my political views are concerned.
At first Sikhs dont resemble any other minority (I hate this word when it is used for Sikhs
, the very people who have sacrificed more than all other communities combined)
and even khalistan movement at its heydays never targeted any Hindu.
Before I write this blog i must make it very clear although i am a Punjabi i never
sympathised with Khalistani cause , not because i am a Hindu but because
its against Punjabiyat to raise arms against the our motherland.


Coming back to 1984 riots which I witnessed in Kanpur, one thing which comes to
my mind is that it was not spontaneous as it seemed, mobs were very much
regulated and they knew exact places where they will find hapless Sikhs in town.
Did i say "regulated" mobs? Now this seem to point to an organisation which always
boasted of great member base , no not Seva Dal (its defunct for looong time now)
RSS seemed to be quite capable of doing what happened in 1984.
No i am not absolving congress of all the mayhem, and Rajeev Gandhi's quote
was most irresponsible one has ever come across, but its seemed that congress
was not exactly an organisation which knew for sure what to do about Sikhs.
Utopia

Thats how i would describe this "city", coz one it is not a city as such and
although it "houses" 10000 souls in daytime it seems to be free from any ill effects
of city.Infy City, i remember my first day at this revered campus.I arrived in monday's
propah attire on one fine december morning alongwith JJ, after we entered the main
gate something in us made us move towards the "Corporate" building where we
asked for whereabouts of our reporting manager from "far from amused"
receptionist , who gave us the directions with "boy-u-are-at-wrong-place" look :)
Not more than 10 mtrs away was Him, man corporate india affectionately refers as
NRN.I bowed my head and HE seem to reciprocate as well or so i thought.
I hurriedly left the place half embarassed half amazed , thanking my stars
that i was able to see HIM from such a close distance.

(to be continued)

Use Me
i am going to write this blog in a hurry , jus something which has been troubling my sleep
lately :) Emotional Recycle Bin yeah thats what i have become, people jus dont
know where to stop, they will howl they will abuse this world , people around them
their bosses, indian education system and would then wait for my comments
as if it matters to them, actually its not my opinion which matters its my listening skills
which are handy to them.
yesterday a conversation with baniya went like this

B : Khanne yaar bata is PL ka kya karoo?
Me: Kya matlab?
B: Man this place sucks, now my PL is going back on his promise of giving me band 1
Me: yaar yahan sabke saath aisa hi hain
B: Hey par mere saath hi kyon?
Me: Chill yaar
B: What chill? Tell me what should i do about this? I am banking on u
Me: Boss abhi keep chill, baad mein agle cycle mein dekhiyo
B: Yaar yeh to bata saale onsite kaise maangu
Me: Baniye how do i know yaar , main to kabhi gaya hi nahin
B: Cmon yaar tere ko pata hain ki kaise patate, mujhe bhi bata


Is there a course (with full fee refund offer) which teaches us to say "Stop right
there bugger or i ll shoot ur b!@#$s off" !
