Define being happy.............

From a calvin nd hobbes strip

Calvin: What do you think is the true meaning of happiness??
Is it Money, Cars and Women.......or is it just cars and money??

Frankly I wouldn't mind either option ;)

Point to ponder!!

From a calvin nd hobbes strip!

Calvin: Do you belive in fate?

Hobbes: You mean, that our lives are predestined?

Calvin: Yeah....that thinds we do are inevitable....

Hobbes: What a scary thought.....


Quite a few of my friends, juniors in college, who have just recently started
listening to different kinds of music(or are wondering about it) have asked me..
how the hell is one genre different from another??

Say you compare Alternative rock with hard rock with pop. It is difficult.
Once you start listenin to this stuff you can make out the difference...ne how
this is one way.....below are the ways how a band or singer might talk about,say


Faster than the speeding light she’s flying
Trying to remember where it all began
She’s got herself a little piece of heaven
Waiting for the time when earth shall be as one

You always had hope.....and it usually has a "HAPPY ENDING"

If brittney spears had her choice light would be something to do with
one of her boyfriends, ex, current or future.....

Alternative Rock

nobody really knows where they're supposed to go
hiding behind a wall
afraid that they'll lose it all
but it's alright
just follow the light
and don't be afraid of the dark

The situation is really BLEAK but there IS a way out...

Hard Rock

And it feels right this time
On this crash course we’re in the big time
Pay no mind to the distant thunder
Beauty fills his head with wonder, boy....

Says it feels right this time
Turn around, found new high lights
Good day to be alive sir
Good day to be alive, he said.....

Then it comes to be that the soothing light at the end of your tunnel
Is just a freight train coming your way

Every thing was JUST FINE, but then every thing comes crashing down,
you are screwed and nothing can be done!!!

Take your pick!!! what I would suggest give everything a chance and then decide.
Belive it or not I have the album by a band called AQUA (Barbie girl!!) So
I did try EVERYTHING!!!!

And I don't want the world to see me
'Cause I don't think that they'd understand
When everything's made to be broken
I just want to know who I am

that is all that matters.....rite? who the hell you are!!

Hi, I am a physician. A family doctor to be more precise. One of my dearest
friend Kumar is also my patient.

My Dad was his Dad's doctor....so guess we are family friends too. His being
filthy rich is besides the point ;) anyway, Kumar had a problem.....before
dying his dad created a trust fund of all the cash he had and made both kumar and
his wife Nalini the trustees.....being the "new age" couple they are they don't
have kids....

ok, now the problem....they can't stand each other......both of them have
a relationship outside of the marriage and neither wants to part with the money!!
(surpise, huh!!) ok, so where do i come in??? both of em trust ME!!

The other day Kumar approached me for a solution, and as any good friend would,
I obliged him. Not the perfect but the most effective solution was reached.
I gave him the name of a hitman (also my patient).Two days later(yesterday i.e.)
he would have been a free man......but 3 hours after he left Nalini came to me
with the same problem(and as any good friend would,I obliged him.)

Yesterday the Mumbai police found two dead bodies....they belive it was the work
of the underworld, some kind of an extortion racket. Hmmmm I am a bit low since
I lost two good friends but.............

Oh, I forgot to mention uncle's will had a clause, that if both Kumar and Nalini
died, the cash would be passed on to my dad.....ironically he died in a car
accident today morning..........

Really important things to do.....

Got this on the web.......makes you wonder, these people don't have a life either ;)

"This is a list of just plain fun things to do. I do these every once in a while and it attracts attention, whether it be wanted or not. Here goes: 1. If there is a large crowd of people looking at something which requires perfect silence from the crowd, make sure you're in the back, out of anyone's view. Make a very weird noise. For instance, push the back of your tongue against the back of your throat (near your uvula) and it will make a "ghe" noise. People will wonder about you... 2. If you are on a manual, small form of transportation on a road for cars, wait for an extremely polite driver to give you extra space. If you're lucky enough, he'll have his window open, then you scream "WATCH WHERE YOU'RE DRIVING, (place random cussword here)!!!" 3. If you really want to give someone a fright, be in a car with them at night. Whil the car is off, and it's just you two, hope and pray that they stay silent. Look at the back of a seat or the dashboard. DO NOT make eye contact with them. After a while, scream at the top of your lungs. For added effect, get out of the car and run away. The other person may have a heart attack. 4. This is a cool way to take ANYBODY down. Get going at a good speed, a mix between a slow trot and a jog, then leap up and hook your arm around someone's neck, not pulling it. If they stay up, say, "You passed", and if they fall, you've got them in a headlock!!! This is really only meant for short people like me. Please use these "tricks" and enjoy."

The real use for cellphones

Besides singing loudly where others can hear, have you ever dared to think out loud? Start a long conversation with yourself? Nowdays it's possible: just get an old defunct cellphone and an earphone. Sit in the park with the cellphone in your lap and say anything you want, right out loud. Nobody will care. (Just don't dare to try this WITHOUT an obvious cellphone and headset!) Hmmm. Even better. Just wear a headset alone, but with the plug dangling loose in your lap. Passersby will assume that you have a cellphone. But perhaps one or two will look more closely, realize that no cellphone is involved, then suddenly stop smiling. And back away from you carefully.


Here is a really cool alternative to smoking...

Face a light source such as a bare light bulb. Tightly close you lips. Fill your cheeks with air partially, breathe normally through your nose, then fiercely tense your cheeks and lips while blowing to compress the air inside. (It helps if you push fingers on your lips to keep air from spurting out.) Now relax your cheeks, part your lips, and spit the air out very slowly. (Don't breathe out, instead spit the air out with cheeks and tongue.) Smoke! Fog comes out of your mouth. It's just like the fog in the neck of a freshly opened bottle of cola. This works great in the dark with a flashlight.

naaaaaaah not my kinda muzik but I recently bought this double CD compilation of old folksy songs....this one is the most romantic song ever written I'd say and to add to that sung by JOHN DENVER....

Annie's Song
John Denver

You fill up my senses
Like a night in a forest
Like the mountains in springtime
Like a walk in the rain
Like a storm in the desert
Like a sleepy blue ocean
You fill up my senses
Come fill me again

Come let me love you
Let me give my life to you
Let me drown in your laughter
Let me die in your arms
Let me lay down beside you
Let me always be with you
Come let me love you
Come love me again

You fill up my senses
Like a night in a forest
Like the mountains in springtime
Like a walk in the rain
Like a storm in the desert
Like a sleepy blue ocean
You fill up my senses
Come fill me again

you just can't not appreciate this one!!!

Stuck in a moment?

Back to the single most important thing in life...MUZIK....can't live without it.....can't stand the BAD STUFF!!!

I love rock n metal but don't mind the old stuff like cat steavens or kishore or rafi for that matter....love the boss(both springstein and R.D.Burman) but this piece is about the shitty stuff....

Ever had an experience when there is this absolutely lovely song you just can't remember.....it is like it is stuck to tip of your tounge but you just can't get yourself to get hold of the details....there is nothing more irritating right??? naaaaaaah...there is something even worse....

You are listening to muzik on your walky or PC or take your pick.....somehow the playlist has this absolutely shitty song on it...and being the lazy being(cool huh!) you are you say what the hell let it play....ok no harm done.....now remove the ear phones, something is bothering you.....what the hell you have this insane urge to hum some song....who cares?? go ahead and the master piece that comes out is that shitty song......of the 250 odd songs on your playlist this was the only one that is stuck in your headspace!!!!! AAAAAAAAA HELP!!!!!!!!!!!! typically the song would be an ANU MALIK creation like that god forsaken...It's rainin, it's rainin...or i think it was JHANJARIA from GOPI KISHEN, yeah that was it....but it is not like I am puting down hindi muzik there are tonnes of such songs that suck in pop.ALL OF THE TEEN POP STARS a la spears, aguilera, enrique.......but what to do the "HUMAN" brain is a funny thing.....it will only cling to things that won't make sense......MURPHY, I AM GONNA KICK YOUR ASS!!!!!!!!!!!

Mr Murphy SUX

I am usually the odd man out in any group you would like to place me into...
so basically I am a wierdo....searchin for me....whatever that means..

What does that mean??? I am some how under the impression that I am just another guy who becuse is himself is wierd...wierd?? ok ne way no introspection..the point is some how rules don't work for me.....naaaaah I'm not a rebel, it is just that I don't get pissed by the usual stuff, am indifferent to most of the things, if I don't like you you will not exist for me, I hate remixes, love rock and metal, like to be different but also don't want the spotlight.....ne way so where does MURPHY come into this mess???

what I meant by rules were the usual things by which people swear by.....lucky charms, best friends, relationships these things don't work with me the only thing that works with me is Mr MURPHY's law.....whatever can go wrong(in the conventional sense) will, but since the conventional thing is not working for me MURPHY screws up the things that should work otherwise coz they are not normal and because of the double negative MURPHY is screwing up the wierd stuff AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA....
so, basically after another usual day with none of the usual things messed up and fuuking up the wierd stuff(making the wierd stuff wierder) it doesn't matter....so Mr MURPHY carry on with your entertainment, It is just making my list of extra curricular activities much more interesting.....so basically whatever is going on was supposed to. LET'S PLAY BALL!!!! M ready!!!

Gyan from Feynman..and how true...

I listened to a conversation between two girls, and one was explaining that if you want to make a straight line, you see, you go over a certain number to the right for each row you go up--that is, if you go over each time the same amount when you go up a row, you make a straight line--a deep principle of analytic geometry! It went on. I was rather amazed. I didn't realize the female mind was capable of understanding analytic geometry.

She went on and said, "Suppose you have another line coming in from the other side, and you want to figure out where they are going to intersect. Suppose on one line you go over two to the right for every one you go up, and the other line goes over three to the right for every one that it goes up, and they start twenty steps apart," etc.--I was flabbergasted. She figured out where the intersection was. It turned out that one girl was explaining to the other how to knit argyle socks. I, therefore, did learn a lesson: The female mind is capable of understanding analytic geometry. Those people who have for years been insisting (in the face of all obvious evidence to the contrary) that the male and female are equally capable of rational thought may have something. The difficulty may just be that we have never yet discovered a way to communicate with the female mind. If it is done in the right way, you may be able to get something out of it.

If you know me you know that I am a music buff, well if u don't know me...I am a music buff ;)...ne way the other day I was going through my collection (pretty huge one :)) and saw this old BonyM tape lyin around....that is what started this thought process....

Well my dad used to listen to music pretty often....one of his friends had come over and he had this new (happening i guess :)) tape from BoneyM....dad had not heard any of their tapes so he decided to take a sample....The first song was "Night flight to venus" if i remember correctly....I was around 6 then so, that song did not have any lyrics (not many any way!) but i loved the beat.....so as is customary i guess i started a voluntary "dance" (if u can call it tht, i still can't ;)) performance and dad said what the heck he got the tape recorded....and from that day on every day after school that was the only tape that played on the state of the art (for that time) JVC deck.....I guess I made everyone at home sick of that song, coz they somehow persuaded me to take a chance with some other cassette.....

That is when I discovered "Beat it" by MJ and I WAS HOOKED.... So if u see me with a walkman and a baseball cap with my head bobbing from one side to the other...blame it on my dad and his friend ;)

some trivia: Did you know that BoneyM was formed after their first song was released
and found an audience...the afro ppl were just performers, lip syncin a la Britney Spears....the creativity behind the music was that of the producer...that is how the story goes any way...

PS: this story is not as told to me but as i remember so............:)

The Hero of Geeks interested in physics...

But obviously...Feynman!! Here are few of his quotes....tells you how cool
he really was!!

"If we will only allow that, as we progress, we remain unsure, we will leave
opportunities for alternatives. We will not become enthusiastic for the
fact, the knowledge, the absolute truth of the day, but remain always
uncertain... In order to make progress, one must leave the door to the
unknown ajar."

You can know the name of a bird in all the languages of the world, but when
you're finished, you'll know absolutely nothing whatever about the bird...
So let's look at the bird and see what it's doing -- that's what counts. I
learned very early the difference between knowing the name of something and
knowing something.

"Science is the belief in the ignorance of experts. "

"We cannot define anything precisely! If we attempt to, we get into that
paralysis of thought that comes to philosophers, who sit opposite each
other, one saying to the other, 'You don't know what you are talking about!'
The second one says 'What do you mean by know? What do you mean by talking?
What do you mean by you?', and so on."

"...far more marvelous is the truth than any artists of the past imagined
it. Why do the poets of the present not speak of it? What men are poets who
can speak of Jupiter if he were a man, but if he is an immense spinning
sphere of methane and ammonia must be silent?"

(On pseudoscience) "...there is one feature I notice that is generally
missing in 'cargo cult science'... It's a kind of scientific integrity, a
principle of scientific thought that corresponds to a kind of utter honesty
-- a kind of leaning over backwards... For example, if you're doing an
experiment, you should report everything that you think might make it
invalid--not only what you think is right about it... Details that could
throw doubt on your interpretation must be given, if you know them."

"I'd hate to die twice. It's so boring." (last words)

........HITCHCOCK WAS GOD!!.......

Hmmmm......are you a movie buff?? Either way you will know that the recent hit "BHOOT" did not have any songs.....but the background score packed a solid punch...imagine watchin a horror movie without the sudden ups and downs in the pitch of the background score....it would seem so lifeless.......

Now, go to your DVD/VCD parlour and rent one of hitchcock's old movies...a la "THE 39 STEPS" or say "THE MAN WHO KNEW TOO MUCH" the actor's weren't great...movies were in black nd white.....and yeah, no background score (almost non-existant any way)...but while it lasts (not a long time....say 1 Hr or so..) it won't let you move....THAT was the genius of the man.......

In the recent past the only director who could get that kind of effect was (i think it was joel schumacher) the director of PHONE BOOTH (but he had the help of superior tech and better actors...)

Had hitchcock been a filmmaker now spielberg and cameron and guyz would have been number 2.......but still no one can argue..THAT MAN WAS A GENIUS!!!

i don't know if you are a music buff to but i am a complete BUFF....the thing is for every thing that happens a song usually pops up in my head...so a couple of days ago when I read of the nafisa joseph's suicide.... a couple of songs popped up in my head...the first one was SUICIDE IS PAINLESS (title song of M*A*S*H)...nd the other one was adam sandler's KILL ME (from the wedding singer...)

why??? the first one for the obvious reasons the second one coz it is about a disgrunteled lover tryin to cope with the rejection....so wot went thru your head (after you thought poor girl obviously....... :confused: )

Suicide is painless --- jay jay jhonson

Through early morning fog I see
The visions of the things to be
The pains that are withheld from me
I realise and I can see

Suicide is painless
It brings on any changes
But I can take or leave it if I please

The game of life is hard to play
I’m gonna loose it anyway
But losing cards are some days late
So this is all I have to say

The sword of time will pierce our skin
It doesn’t hurt when it begins
But as it works it’s way on in
The pain grows stronger watch it grin

A brave man once requested me
To answer questions that I keep
Is it to be or not to be
And I reply oh why ask me ?

And you can do the same thing if you please

Kill me ----Adam sandler

[Spoken] Ok, I just want to warn you that when I wrote this song I was listening to the Cure a lot.
You don't know how much I need you.
While you're around I don't feel blue.
And when we kiss I know that you need me too.
I can't believe I found a love that's so pure and true.

But it all was bullshit.
It was a goddam joke.
And when I think of you and I,
I hope you fucking choke.

I hope you're glad with what you've done to me.
I lay in bed all day long feeling melancholy.
You left me here all alone,
tears running constantly.

Oh somebody kill me please,
somebody kill me plee-ase,
I'm on my knees,
pretty pretty please kill me.
I want to die.
Put a bullet in my head.

[Spoken] Kid: You're going to the mental institution.

Ps: if u did not know M*A*S*H was ironically a comedy on the lives of army docs during the vietnam war!!!

CAPITAL punishment

Back to death........few things about the present day that absolutely pisses me off....media taking sides instead of presenting the facts....ppl pretending to be from the main stream (read as moderates) irrespective of what they actually think when in there homes.....remixing of songs released as "tributes" (seperate blog on tht later)...

The recent episode in West Bengal led to a debate on capital punishment on a popular site(rediff).....I hav a different approach ....i think u can't let a rapist and murderer of a 14yr old kid get away with jst a single death...i DON'T GIVE A RAT'S ASS if it acts as a deterent to others or not this gut should get his dew...all the STARS gather for human rights...the fact of the matter is u hav absolutely no right to decide that the victim's rights were not as important coz he/she is dead....

If u hav lost some one close to you....u'll know how painful it is......but u r helpless coz u cnt blame ne one....now imagine the rage in u'r head n heart if u cud see the guy who did that....balls to his rights.....i wanna kill him.....as fat boy slim wud say "rite here, rite now"......

So my solution...even if tht guy was an animal he wud be shit scared when he knowz hez gonna be hanged on a certain day n date.....wot i say is this.....tell him the date only 2 weeks in advance....write a s/w(wot to do we r n d IT age) to randomly decide the date and then decide...if u wanna conduct the death on that day (by wotever means) if not.....cancel it....and decide for a date again.....this can be continued for a maximum of 14 yrz(the life sentence)......after which he'z gotta be hanged...

Twisted and sick?? yes that is the point after all!! make him beg for wot he never wished for but did to the victim........

if u hav time read John Grisham's The Chamber and u'll get wot i'm drivin at.....

Da theory of relativity??

No pretentions....this has nothin to do with einstein's masterpiece...

I met Mr layman again ysterday (to b understood as cudn't sleeep so was TRYIN to think)....and the conversation went towards theories....and then obviously to relativity....

From a person's point of view....imagine u r bugged up with u'r shity life.....everything around u is movin too bloody fast u want to stop relax and take a break....wot do u feel like doin?? yeah thts rite SCREAM!!! but y??....bcoz when u scream really loud.....all u'r other senses won't b workin (not tht well ne way)...u won't b able to hear ne 1 else....so u will be alone..in a shell relatively speakin ;)..

The other way to look at relativity wud be this message tht i have on one of my T'z

Success is relative...
the more the success...the more the relatives :)

Home work for d weekend..if u r a techy...or ne other trade wrkin in an office wid cubicles....U GOTTA TAKE A LOOK AT THIS VIDEO....

the BIG question..........

I'm BACK.....i started readin The emperor's new mind by roger penrose(must read if u hav ne interest in maths and/or physics and/or computers).......ne how, i started the 3rd chapter and it has this HUGE pattern plastered over a couple of pages...and the author says this is maths HUH??? man u R crazy....

Ok, so as it turns outit was maths after all...abstract maths at that...but it turns out if u plot all the points that satisfy an equation(due to amnesia...cudn't remember) this pattern emmerges.....the point being this wierd patter which can be broken down to the scale of a building block is the result of a computer solving an equation....not interestin enuf??? read on......

Here is the BIG question........what make u say that you nd i are not the results of a comp solvin an equation..bouncer??? ok my thots....

BIG BANG.........=> the biggest comp u can imagine (may b a quantum wala!!!) strted solvin THE equation....

Building block.....=> The smallest particle discovered last or to be discovered yet (i lost count)

who started it all..=> who cares for u it may be u'r respective god....or if u r an atheist...which quite a few of d ppl i kno are then may b the janitor of the place...he jst plugged in da m/c...

where am i goin......herez d deal......u r jst followin the rules defined by THE equation......no control over wot u r doin...when u think u r a rebel and are not following the rules may be u r just following the equation and are supposed to be tht way...........(MATRIX ishtyle)

ZOOM OUT..........the comp has jst strted solvin the eq and plottin the results....the millions of years old our universe is a couple of nano secs for the m/c...so STOP LIVIN IN U'R PERFECT WRLD AND LOOK OUTSIDE D WINDOW........puts things in perspective dsn't it......

I have quite a few "friends" who say they are atheists. Some of them i'm sure beleive it and for others it is jst another thing tht makes em cool. I myself do beleive in god but i actually loath the concept of religion.............

God, i beleive in.....why??? I like the concept that when i screw up BIG TIME i can still look up n say....OH god save me this time, i promise not to trouble u again....till the nxt time ;).....i also like to think that wot ever i do there is some one to watch my back...n actually never ask for ne thing from me.......so, basically i think i need ATLEAST 1 parasitic reln in my life n i'd preffer it to b some one i can't directly relate to.....a higher power.....the divine....who (i hope) will never get pissed at me, n whn some thing happens to me i can make him (or atleast try to...) feel guilty...one more thing i m almost sure tht god is either a surd or a negro....based on his sense of humor!!

Now the thing i hate.....Religion......originally i'm sure it was made as a rule book (hopefully with some logic) to guide the society (WHOAAA) ne how it is completly screwed up now.......i havn't studied ne religion in depth so i'll refrain from makin ne big time controversial statement.....but how the hell can u tell me tht i can eat a chicken but need to worship some other animals.....if the animals had a union (a la Dr Dolittle)
they wud hav sued us by now for discrimination and species-ism!! the form in which religion is rite now is pretty shitty......i remember this incident naseerudin shah's (who is married to a hindu) son was refused admission in a school coz his father filled in INDIAN as his kid's religion n refused to fill in hindu or muslim......ne how u r entitled to u'r choice............

As is customary i'll end this piece with some lyrics ;) the beauty abt it is u can interpret it as u want.....this can also be a dedication frm u'r dad to u'r mom.....


we've come a long, long, way together
through the hard times, and the good
i have to celebrate you baby
i have to praise you like i should

Thursday, June 10, 2004


Last sunday i went on another one of my shoppin spreez....the only thing it includes is MUZIK..of the cdz tht i bought one was "ELEPHANT By THE WHITE STRIPES"....i was waitin fr a long time for this album to be released in india....and it finally arrived....the muzik is obviously gud.....but in the cd thr is a booklet (as is usually the case).....this post is completely frm tht and is not my creation.....The following is an explaination of the muzik...wot it is about and stuff....

This album is dedicated to , and is for, and is about the death of the sweetheart. In a social plane, impossible to exist, and in memories, past defeating present. We mourn the sweetheart's loss in a disgusting world of opportunistic lottery ticket holders, caring about nothing that is longterm, only the cheap thrill, the kick, and for the moment pleasure, the easy way out, the bragging rights and the trophy holding....The thirteen year old tattoo, the hard attitude, devil may care, dnt call u'r parents, drink, abuse, thnk only u'r self and blame every 1 else if u dnt get u'rs. Gone to the ether, gone to u'r mother's hope chest, buried in the boot of the rocker, the trunk of the car, and they get laughs, they get home late, they missed the rent, they forgot u'r money, they've won't be told they are wrong.

Burn baby burn, take the trash to the living room, laugh at the sweetheart, you and your friend can kill it if television's aim is bad, Break it hard or die, Hard or die. It keeps going, u r not wrong, keep going, dn't worry abou tit, what matters? U'r havin fun rite? break the rules, break them hard, help u'r self. Make u'r self at home, turn on the video games, dn't bother to contact, gorge u'r self, it's all here for u, take u'r sweet time,if u r confronted by it, blow it off and get paid quick. This is wot it is all about, and we r with u baby, take my bite as high support, take my argument as something that is my problem, u dn't need this, u need to please u'r self. The dream is alive and well, And we dnt wanna wake up from it. ETHICS, MORALS, SPIRITS, BREAKFAST CEREALS................

Ok so this mite be more relevant for americans but belive me WE R GETTIN THERE!!!

Wierd one huh?? BIG DEAL u shud've expected that from me! ok i'am making an effort not to write in the SMS lingo.....now i don't remember how to spell so.......

So, u obviously read comics when u were young. When we think(whenever!!) abt a super hero we usually get an image of a geek who transforms into a caper having special powers and usually not knowing where is he supposed to wear his chaddiz(eng wala dsn't have the same ring to it!!)

Even if u grew up with the indian super heros u obviously know about SUPERMAN!!! So why superman?? i never thought of this till i saw KILL BILL vol 2.....(HUH??) ok in a conversation in the movie this fact comes to light:

What is the difference between Superman and all the other super heroes??(there mite be more who set the bill but i'm talkin abt the ones that come to mind immediately)

All the other super heroes are regular ppl who become their alter egos i.e. the superhero but super man has an alter ego who is a regular geek Clark kent..wierd huh???

wot if superman was sick n tired of being him self wot wud he be thinking??? the perfect ans is this song by a band called "Five for fighting" chk out the lyrics bit long but be patient!

I can’t stand to fly
I’m not that naive
I’m just out to find
The better part of me
I’m more than a bird…I’m more than a plane
More than some pretty face beside a train
It’s not easy to be me
Wish that I could cry
Fall upon my knees
Find a way to lie
About a home I’ll never see
It may sound absurd…but don’t be naive
Even Heroes have the right to bleed
I may be disturbed…but won’t you concede
Even Heroes have the right to dream
It’s not easy to be me
Up, up and away…away from me
It’s all right…You can all sleep sound tonight
I’m not crazy…or anything…
I can’t stand to fly
I’m not that naive
Men weren’t meant to ride
With clouds between their knees
I’m only a man in a silly red sheet
Digging for kryptonite on this one way street
Only a man in a funny red sheet
Looking for special things inside of me
inside of me ......
I’m only a man in a funny red sheet
I’m only a man looking for my dream
I’m only a man in a funny red sheet
It’s not easy
It’s not easy to be me...

so who wud u rather be?????

ok ok, this one is a bit early but WOT TO DO WE R LIKE THIS ONLY!!

Let's see, pick up u'r resume, most probably under the header HOBBIES u hav listenin to muzik!!! who doesn't me too.....and i take it seriously (seriously, i do!!) may be all u ppl who hav stayed in a hostl wud identify with this....listenin to the walkman 24/7 (well, almost).....ne way if u dn't listen to muzik on the walkman tht often....u mite wanna try it after readin this......

Since we hav already established tht u r a hostelite( logical approach!!) to head back home u must've taken a train.....and tht to sleeper....and now since the guy below u is snorin tht loud u do it again....wot, u ask?? PUT ON THE WALKMAN......TRAIN KI AAWAZ (eng wala did not hav the same ring to it!!) is a bit annoyin but it doesn't last....

Ok now herez the POINT (if u were lookin 4 one...) the sound did not last coz....pick up any song of u'r choice (nothin obscure ok!).........filter out all the other soundz except the BASS......now concentrate.....after a couple of secs when u get the beat......u'll fell u'v heard it b'fore!! TRY THIS....ne beat u hear can be thot of the sound the train made all u have to do is change the speed of the train or change u'r reservation ....WOT DO I MEAN??

If the beat is heavy, u r in a A/C compartment.....if it is a bit loud u r back to the sleeper......if it gets loder u r standing next to the train door!!! It suddenly becomes shrill.....the train jst passed a bridge.....tht was the pitch.....the speed of the beat is directly controlled by the speed of the train (hope u r not travellin by a mail or u'll lose all control ;) ) i think this is especially true for the new brand of muzik...the rmx, rehman's, mainstream rock...and the MONOTONOUS POP.....

no disrespect to ne onez creativity all i wanna say is all the beats in ne song when toned down a bit will fit in to one case of u on a train.....u decide u'r location and the speed of the trainn the TRAIN KI AAWAZ will no longer bug u...

it did wrk fr me so............

If u dnt belive me, jst give it a shot try it out....:: FOR BEST RESULTS USE A WALKMAN

The other day i was watching "28 days later".........it raised quite a few questions in my head........herez one of them........The muvi had a scene when the lead actor is crossing the london bridge and there is absolutely no one there.........(not 1 soul..)
So, wot is interestin is this.....

U get up one fine morning and there is no body there!! NAAAAH not like a disaster muvi...there was no epidemic jst tht frm this moment on you will never ever have any human contact, OK pretty predictable till now....the real question is wil u be happy or sad?? or will u hav a nervous break down??

Mind u i'm not talkin abt a guide to survival (a la "CASTAWAY") the simple question i'm askin u is if u have every thing u'd ever want, absolutely no human contact......wot will u do and wot will u'r reaction be??

Hmmmmm......i dunno, may be i'll be relived tht all the screw ups i did yesterday can now be overlooked, seriously i wud be relieved.....nothin to be done......nothin to be answerable about, but the problem is that my survival mechanism is HUMOR but i need a SUBJECT for the HUMOR to wrk........so now i need something else.......DIFFICULT

But whatever u'r reaction was for the question initially, i'm sure u'd agree to this: wotever u do from this moment on, will b for u.........not for a family or a frnd or u'r boss........no one!! it'll b for U tht might be the frst time in u'r life U did something for u'r self, not for ne body else and not asked for ne body elses opinion(unlike here ;))IT WUD BE FOR YOU!!! I think it will be worth it........ne way if u get too bored u can always KILL U'R SELF!! (it wud no longer b a crime!!! :))

Prerequisites to read on, u mst b crazy and/or know how to drive.

Ok, here goes....so, i'm jst another guy who luvzz gadget (yeah yeah i kno, u like it more thn me!!) ne way so the thing is i luv to drool over all these locomotives (ahem ahem) carz and bikes both included. If u like speed, and like to push u'r limits thn may be u'll agree, then again even if u don't WHO CAREZ?

So back to the point, You are cruising on the ring road (ne clear stretch of road for tht matter) in u'r car, with the muzik blasting(one of the only two advantages of a car)
and the only thing tht wud tell ya tht u are goin really fast and are about to shatter u'r own land speed record is tht boooooooring speedometer......

Take two, You are cruising on the ring road (ne clear stretch of road for tht matter) on u'r BIKE, i don't care which one coz u'r not racin against me, but u'r self.....now take a moment (FREEZE FRAME) if u r as mad as me u'r listenin to u'r walkman (marilyn manson or rammstein still tryin hard to make u deaf) u r hunched over u'r bike's tank (yyup jst like valentino rossi!!) and u jst need to add only 1km/h more to the speed to SHATTER the record but SHIT!! If u were in u'r car, this wud hav amounted to jst watchin the speedometer.....ne way the other major kick tht u get is u r "responsible" for u'r own life coz at 100-105 it jst doesn't matter how big a screw up u did, U WILL PAY!!!

The car had a roll cage and air bags (how boring) tht wud make u pay only for the car...so wot's the use u cud've let some one granny drive!! This remindzzz me of the muvi catch me if u can.....the conversation is......

de' caprio: What makes u so sure i wont run.
Hanks: Coz there is no one chasin u!!

This is some thing pretty simmilar, whn u'r screw up will not make tht big a difference, u won't care.......but when u'r life is on the line, u better give it u'r best shot......so basically carz suk!!!

Ok the GYAN is over i think this wud sum it up.......

Life is like a video game (NFS NE ONE?), Loosin is not an option!!!

Hope u set a new recrd today headin bak home!!! gimme a call if u need some blood donations;)

Thought life ( void )

Ok jst got off the phone...was talkin to a frnd...not an old one but still a gud one...ne way she said " it jst made me think about how empty a life can be..." so now i'm up with my "BRAIN" doin over time...

The thing is i dunno how do u measure wot the hell do u hav in life...let's see how can u'r life go........

U'r born and u fall into line.....the only things u can do are either follow wot the ADULTS tell u or do the opposite...now not much of a choice, is it...Thus life can't b messured at this point ..........

U pick wot u wanna do with this bloody life u'll have to live (the whole damn thing!)......tht is usually (talkin abt percentages...) more or less broadly decided 4 u and u continue unless u have BALLS OF STEEL which i think u most probably don't.....so no question of life here either...

Hmmm now u r u'r own person......NOW THE QUESTION NEEDS TO BE TACKLED.......whn do u say life is full??? jst b coz u hav ppl directly involved with u'r life does it make u'r life full??? ok so as the society wanted u to u have the model famil pretty wife, gr8 kids the ppl arnd u will say u have a GR8 life hmmmm.......

but wot abt u??? now u r not livin for u'r self...... so u r basically making the life of u'r family NON-EMPTY....but they are not livin their life either so they are makin u'r life NON_EMPTY..but since none of u find u'r life FULL ne way u r SCREWED!!! both of u r livin EMPTY LIVES!!!

The other end....no family...every goddamn gadget and f*%#in cool thing u cud buy......hav all u need.....but every 1 says u'r life is empty may be u do too............

I dunno wot the rite choice is...may b i'll let u know in another 25 yrs may b u tell me, but i'd say touch as many lives as u can but create a void in theirs jst to try to fill u'rz IT WON'T WRK SO QUIT TRYIN TO TRY..................

DEATH...............part II

Hmmm so i'm back with my fascination.....ok this time it is something serious (yeah i talk abt serious things too). This thing has been bouncing around in the vaccant space between my ears........

I hope u don't but if u hav lost some one close to u or know some one who has...u mite relate to this....so teh deal is this person u know looses some one close.....and then is informed of the fact tht certain rites need to be performed, fair enuf.......

Bfore u can get to the rites u need to inform every on eu know of the death....ok agreed...now comes the shitty part......u can see ppl aproach the door with a very sad mood ( as expected) as soon as they see tht atleast 1 person can see them (mind u it doesn't matter if they can see the body of the departed) they strt cryin their heart out....but it is for all to see tht even Fardeen Khan cud've cried better....(i dunno if it is just me or ne 1 else also feels tht thr is a civilized way of lettin others know of u'r emotion...i'd preffer if u jst lemme know thn to give me a performance so i realise wot d hell do u want)

Although it is a loss, but the ppl directly affected by it need to brace for impact they are not supposed to look after people who are being looked after by all their SHUBH CHINTAKS.....the thing tht really pisses me off wud be if i dnt know u and u do know me (some how knew the person WE lost) and u come to me as my best frnd who is the only 1 who can console me ...BACK OFF...if i need u'r help i'll ask for it u wanna tell me u r sorry abt the loss TELL ME, dn't dump u'r baggage on me.....

in a few of the western countries it seems after the cremation, the lfe of the departed is celebrated sounds like a reasonable idea, but will have simillar issues too....

I dnt have ne thing against the rites and the things tht need to be done as per the religon wot i guess my point is KNOW tht u r feelin sorry for the dead and the dead must not jump out of the grave for the craving of stranglin u so tht U SHUT UP!!!

DEATH.............part I

Hmm wierd choice?? read on....ok, i'm tht kinda guy who gets fascinated by things tht u can't necessarily explain....all the unexplained stuff....i can sit for hours at a time jst staring at the tube watchin discovery air the unsolved things cases, things tht happened....

So, obviously Death also fascinates me!! nah i'm not a wierdo (ne way not tht big a wierdo ;)) it is jst tht i get bored of things pretty fast, ne thing....TV,muzik, ppl books..once the surprise element is gone it tastes bland to me...

This is exactly where death charms me...(read on read on i'm not losin it, yet)....See the very fact tht you will NEVER know wot did happen when some one died.....even if u do find out it will not be proved....If u find out first hand u can not tell ME so i'll never know!! Basically it is a secret all of us are bound to find out (assuming we remain concious after our respective deaths (HUH??)) but can not tell, atleast not to ne one living and the dead already know.....

If u into real muzik (read rock) do 1 thing switch off te lights, insert the floyd or coldplay cd.....shut u'r eyes....think of one thing, ne thing.....the moment u can not listen to the music ne longer.....i hope tht's how u'll feel when u r dead but then again....i won't know soon( hope not, if u already wanna kill me!!) and the day i do i wont be able to tell u..................prt II in a couple of days.....diff issue of death............be patient ;)

Hi, I am Rahul. I am studying in the final year of my B.Com. course in Mumbai. Unlike most of my friends I stay with my parents.....
However, there is one part of my routine i really do enjoy. The college not being too far away from home i usually take the 8:30 am
bus instead of the usually preffered local train. Most of the people at the bus stop are regulars and are quite friendly to each other.
This morning was a bit special though, as i was waiting for the bus we had a new addition to the morning travellers.
This really pretty girl joined us at the stop. The attention of all the men was obviously now solely devoted towards her. Surprisingly,
the few women there were also looking at her. I thought of this as a great chance to make a new friend, and then my luck kicks in,
my bus arrives at the stop. On time for the first time in 3 months!!! Thanks a lot god. Anyway I shrug the disappointment and get on
the bus. As the bus starts to move I realise our new visitor did not join us. Now with nothing else to do I switch on my walkman and
retreat back to my own world, forgeting her.
The bus stops at church gate, about two stops before my college. I look up for a second and THIS IS NOT
POSSIBLE she just climbed on to the bus. But how could she???? I just left her back at that stop. I muster enough courage to go
up to her and talk to her. As soon as i get up the bus comes to a screeching halt. What now?? I ask my self. I must have been
thinking out loud because someone replied the battery is dead. Everybody starts to get off and in the commotion I lose sight of her.
So it will remain as another unsolved mystery.
Back to business, i have to get to the college or will be kicked out of the class. The only option to reach on time
will be to go by an autorikshaw. I wave to the first one in sight, but it already has someone in it. As the autorikshaw passes by i get
a glance of the passenger WHAT?? IT IS HER AGAIN!!!! This is it I start running behind the auto not seeing where I am going and before
I realise this gigantic bus is heading towards me. Over the sound of the traffic i hear a familiar voice......it is my mom. HUH?? " Rahul
get up or you will be late for college...." I get up bathed in sweat and out of breath....
I think of telling my mom about it over breakfast but decide not to and start reading the newspaper. On the page
which has local news there is an article on a college girl who was run over by a bus near church gate. The article also has a picture
and it seems familliar.........

Just think of a scenario, u live in a place where the day for you lasts for eight hours and for your next door neighbour it lasts for just 4 hours. once you get up from u'r sleep it is not necessary that it is sometime in the morning....u might not even get up at the same place where u slept last night....U'r next door neighbour has no recollection of u and u have no clue who he is either(u knew about his day coz i told u!!)
If u havn't guessed as yet, what i'm getting at is what if you were living in some one's dream. A parallel universe of sorts....where u have no control over what the hell is going on with u'r life the pretty gal who u met yesterday and married is no where to be seen and what really hurts is u can not even recollect her face.....the good part will be although u have no control over it u might end up driving a ferrari ENZO and beating schumacher at his own game.....

Coming back to the neighbour guy, you passed him (while lapping Mr schumi) and he was being fined for rash driving (in a maruti!!!) u saw him, u smiled.....but u never got a chance to really piss him off by repeatedly talking to him about it.....u had no idea wot u wanted to say to him jst the fact tht it would hav been fun.....

How annoying wud it be if you got up and had to go clean up the mess some guy made (most prob it wud b u who here on earth had screwed up.....again) and every bloody day u curse the guy how the hell can he be this stupid but the fact remains....HE IS THE 1 CONTROLING U!!!! so SHUT UP!! an dnow u r blanked again as u do not know who r we talkin about.....but it wud still be paradise coz u get to sleep for 16 Hrs a day...so pray to god(pick 1 every day) u r in the dreams of a workaholic and live for ANOTHER #%@*ed up day in PARADISE.....

Now herez the killer.....wot if the 16hrs u sleep and DREAM u r actually spawning another dream which is actually the life of u'r boss who is eventually screwing u on earth...tht's when u create the mess which u will end up cleaning the next 8 hours u get to wake up SO BEWARE DO NOT SLEEP!!
