The Fastest Generation!

On occasions like when my mom goes back to her days , it occurs to me if any other generation preceding ours (this needs clarification. By 'ours', I am referring to those born between the years 1980 and 1990) or any ones in future would witness as many changes at such a rapid pace as we happened to. I'm sure she's missing out many things else, but the following is the list of things that, to my mind, justify my feeling:
1.We lived in times when radio was an indispensable part of our daily life
2.Having a telephone was a luxury
3.The balcony ticket in cinema was Rs.5/- (average)
4.Petrol came at Rs.20/- a litre
5.The shopkeeper would return the change of 5 paise
6.An entire colony of people would gather to watch chitrahaar on the television
7.Water was free and plenty
8.Writing letters was an eagerly awaited activity at weekends

Modes of communication have seen incredible advancement. We have seen it all - radio to TV, phone to mobile phone, letter writing to e-mail, cable, SMS, virtual love, online dating, history-as-it-happens on the World Wide Web ...
Change in the value of rupee happens at a normal pace - and is, on the average, similar for every decade, so it is not a big thing to actually mention. Every generation, indisputably, comes with unique privileges that are denied to others. Nevertheless, our generation seems to stand out in the case of witnessing the most rapid of changes. It might not sound very objective to many, and it may also lead some to infer that my knowledge of history is quite limited and my observation, not quite deep. Well, every opinion, for whose support no mathematical data exists, can be contested in that spirit and it is not, logically, possible to refute either, in spite of the fact which side observation seems to favour.
If there is some kind of material on this topic, I'd surely like to take a look. Not at all to source reaffirmation, but solely because it makes for an interesting reading of the steps in human civilisation and the genius of man, in a wider sense.
{I have, as it seemed inevitable, focused on only that part of the population that could afford, economically, access to all the aforementioned accessories. In doing so, I had to, naturally, eliminate two groups - the one that could afford them quite easily and the other that finds affording a minimum of them impossible}

Where are the Girls?

I've observed the number of girls who maintain blogs is far less than those of boys. Could the reason(s) be one or more or none of the following?

1.The number of boys online is greater than the number of girls

2.The 'blog-awareness-index' is low in case of girls

3.Girls hesitate to disclose their thoughts/opinions online

4.Girls have better things to do in life than blog

5.Girls don't like blogging. Simple

6.The number of girls who blog on a site is directly proportional to the number of the site's most loyal/regular target audience

7.Girls decide whether to blog or not after checking all the templates available. So, they consider blog as a precious possession than just as a dumping ground for mental output

8.Girls are not immature to blog { whats so immature about it }

9.Girls prefer sharing their thoughts with a real person rather than a virtual audience

...maybe the reason is something else altogether? Anybody knows??

no i wonder what am i doing here.. ??

Movie Freak, Movie Freak...

I have watched what movies I could these past few weeks, namely the Kya Kool Hai Hum[Good comedy, excellent and light movie !!! ] , Hitch and The Interpreter. The other movies I wanted to go watch, my friends either had watched them with other people or did not want to go to the “chick” movies.
I do not like when people, and when I say people I mean mostly guys, who label everything girly, for example “chick flick” because it contains the color pink. What is up with guys and the color pink?
Now, I am not a girly girl, and before you draw conclusions based on that statement, let me explain…
I am very unconventional in the way I behave and believe, I do cry at emotional movies,but hey guys also cry, i have seen them crying for DUMB emotional movies. I do not squeal in fright or get scared easily. I do not faint at the sight of blood. In fact, I love gory movies, the more horror, suspence,science fiction the better , I like unusual stuff, topics like cannibalism, any crime topics etc. I have maybe 3 articles of clothing that are pink in color.
So, I do not like it when all my guy friends claim that I am “girl” [wonder what gave that away], when I want to watch the Princess Diaries or Little Black Book or U've Got Mail. What is wrong with those movies? They have a good story with funny scenes, perhaps the cast is mediocre, and maybe the hero gets the girl in the end, so what? Do the happy endings make it a romantic movie that guys cannot stand to watch because romance in movies is what a girl likes? And guys like action movies because everyone senselessly fights each other on drop of a hat? Puh-lease!
And you all wonder why you couldn’t grab some ass the other day! If all you guys want some ‘action’ in your romance, take your girls to those “chick flicks.” And appreciate, don't hate the color pink!

Can I Love U?

I gave my heart to you

I set my standards high

I laid my eyes on you,

I laughed and cried with you,

I told you my hopes and dreams,

My Love and Fears.

My tears I shed all over your shoulder.

In the end,

I came to see that you were

the only guy I could ever trust.

When I see you,

my face lights up with aspiration,

and happiness.

When we talk,

I can feel the load unload

with soothing words from you.

I have the feeling of love in my heart.

In my mind,

I say "You don't mean a thing. "

In my words, I say "You are just a friend. "

But in the deep end of my heart,

I think of only you

When I tell you my expectations of a guy,

You tell me never to fall short of what I want.

But only one thing stands in the way -

You are a friend.

Can I still love you the way that I do?

Summers do not generally evoke the sense of romance in our country. Like they do in many other colder countries. For us, the monsoons do the trick, but they are here already. All of us dread summers especially the harsh "loo" or heat waves up north or even the dry dusty heat in our own city. Funnily, no one ever says I have seen 23 winters or monsoons. But then, there are many joys of the season and here is an ode to some of them.
summer hols(for kids)
or a vacation to some hill-station
ice creams sundaes
cola wars
more sport
more sweat (deodarants???)
sun tan creams
summer clothes
bright colours
jasmine and lilies
lemony juices
cool evening breeze
clear starry skies
chirping birds
midsummer night dreams
some showers as pleasant surprises
and the golden "maaangoes"but wait, not just yet!
Just a nice link on the topic...very colourful, vibrant and lively ....

My Weekend

Looking forward for the weekend and my list of bills never seem to ends, Can safely say I am doing a 50-50 job. Two major items on my list are

needless shopping no more desert the "desserts"
After last weekend, I can happily strike off the shopping from my list and prolly vow never to put it there again ever.

On item #2 must tell you, it was very very tough! My devil incarnate friends were gorging on their wonderfully sinfully delicious choclate cheese cakes and I just looked on...I did look stupid. Clenched fists, jaws ...twenty odd days without these high profile goodies definitely calls for a celebration. Especially for a person with some major sweet teeth when it comes to choclate cakes..., some of them with a silver lining(filling).
