Random !!!!

Before you start scratching your head..... I hate giving titles to my posts....especially ones that are completely random....and so the 'random' title.
Last few days have been exceptionally frustrating for me.........whatever I do in my project...something or the other goes wrong..... I hate implementing rules...I hate fake programs...and I absolutely fucking hate fake errors in programs written by someone else.......urgggggggghhhhhhhhhh!!!!! And to top it all.. My Boss sitting on my head.... asking me the same question again and again.. its so irritating.. what do u think Mr Boss i am doing in this office ?? Hatching eggs?? No Na..

The above mentioned events coupled with wretched weather...could not have made me feel more "down and out". And probably thats why there has been no movement on any of my blogs...cos i write only when I am in a good mood....not that I am in one right now, but today since, something has worked and hopefully my guide has understood all the problems associated, (wouldnt highlight them here cos noone would understand...) and probably now there is at least something to show for in the coming GE meet
Anyway, so long....that was all that I could update from my side....one moe update is I got the GE Project... People who arRandome close to me only know about it.. and i am happy that i finally got it after keeping my as on fire for so many weeks..

Cheers ;-)

Monday Morning Blues @#$@#%@#

I could honestly say that I have had better mornings. This morning did not start out well at all. I hate these kinds of days… when I feel frustrated and overwhelmed and underapperciated all before the 11 ‘o’ clock hour. Honestly people… cut me some slack. I am only one person often singe-handedly trying to hold down a busy office.
So far this morning… three (three!) people have insulted my intelligence, one of which was my boss. I have had to deal with far to many ignorant people before the clock rolled into double digits. I have already managed to double book my weekend. No one I need to get a hold of to do my work is returning my calls. I have a ton of work to accomplish to compensate for my day off next month where I will be engaged in my favorite acitivity of all time… sitting and preparing for my MBA exams. I had no time to eat breakfast or pack a lunch. I am freezing my ass off. Oh, the list could go on and on if I let it.
The temperature just shooting up

Try This~~The Latest Craze

My usual daily routine is to try and sit down each night and read the paper I get delivered. I'm not much of a crossword person, so I normally skip the puzzles page. Then I noticed all this talk of the Sudoku "craze" that was "sweeping the nation". It's only recently that I started actually playing it and found myself literally swept away with it.
Here a puzzle for you guys. Give me a solution or this and i would give u a gift, anywhere in the world you guys are you would get the gift. And i am SERIOUS HAAN :)

Whoever gives me the answer first in the comments will get the gift. Sounds crazy guys but lets just try..

A Perfect Day !!!

Today was a perfect day. Started a week with a nice monday and hope the same continues in the weekdays to go ahead. Had lots of work in offfice today but dint do anything much as boss was not around :) . but in the evening his one call blew my mind off, but as he says always when a boss scolds his collegue for the first time , the next time on the same day he should speak casually and sweetly with the collegue and express that you do care for him/her.
My dad too follows the same thought and i was happy about it.
I am feeling very sleepy today but dont feel like sleeping and wasting time. I had a nice casual chat with my friend after almost a week. Earlier i used to chat with this friend over the phone almost everyday but after one incident i felt i was giving this friend of mine too much importance and let this friend also realise my value :)
Anyways updating my blog and trying to make it more colorful and different.. catch u guys later.. c yaa

Do You Hate Forwards ?

This world is much better without them . I know i sound like a rude person, but its the fact people. Ofcourse with every email site offering 1 GB space, it doesnt really mind ya as far as the space is concerned, but god, all these forwards are sooooooo crazy at times.

Most of them are are friendship thing. Now look, the usual one's are like a plagiarised poem, with every line rhyming, and words often repeated, quite mediocre i know. i mean do u really need that to prove that u r someone's pal. and the really weird thing is that catch of these mails has stuff like u r my dearest most precious friend, now what i wanna know is, how can a person have 200 dearest and most precious pals,. going by the number of ppl a mail is being sent to.But thats not the last of it. In the end it says u need to send it to so and so many people or u r love life/gay life/married life/whatever might get ruined.

I mean PEOPLE!!!!! WAKE UP!!!! If people actually got dumped , divorced, heartbroken etc coz they didnt forward a lousy forwarded messge, man this world would be in ruins; wouldnt it? And yes ofcourse There are the pity mails. I agree that some of them are genuine, but 99.9% are just so full of crap.

Type 1: Hello ****** My name is ******, i am 7 years old. i lost my teddy. please pass this on to your friends, and for every forward i'll get a cent to buy a new one.

Type 2: Hello, while i was in IRAQ, my shop was blasted by bush, and now i am jobless, also the americans are mean. plz send this mail to 10000000 others so that i will receive 1 iraqi what's-their-currency-again? for every forward.

Type 3: I was driving, i was drunk, and i was horny. my gf got out of control, and started actin all dirty. i lost hold of the wheel.Now i just have one nose and 3.5 teeth left. plz send me some dollars.

This list is endless. you get the idea. why do people do this, why send forwards at all? Oh yes...then there are those so called "cute forwards", Ya know the ones with huge stuffed animals and babies showin ya the middle finger, that makes ya go like, "awwwwww cho chweet" and crap. People actually like to have their mailbox filled with crap like that. I mean if you really like stuffed stuff so much, why not log onto a similar website, or sit at the archies gallery all day. you can imagine why i wrote this post. i just received like 25 forwards in one day . these were my views. I know i too send forwards but not the types mentioned above.

Moral of the Story...
Sometimes, we wonder why friends keep forwarding jokes to us without writing a word, maybe this could explain: "When you are very busy, but still want to keep in touch, guess what you do -- you forward jokes. When you have nothing to say, but still want to keep contact, you forward jokes. When you have something to say, but don't know what, and don't know how, you forward jokes."
And to let you know that: you are still remembered, you are still important, you are still loved, you are still cared for, guess what you get? A forwarded joke from me. So my friend, next time if you get a joke, don't think that I have sent you just a joke, but that I have thought of you today and wanted to send you a smile.

Went out with a few friends today evening. I was just wondering today as to why do i always choose to go to either The Forum or The Garuda Mall to catch up with my friends.
Actually i cant think of any other place to meet up my friends. Most of them are outstation people and these shopping malls are the only happening places for a crowd like mine to meet up at.
I remember the days when The Forum was opended initially. I was in Accenture at that time. I used to be at the Forum almost every weekend. It seemed to me at times as if i used to go there to put attendance :)
Now since i have moved out of Koramangala and moved to Indiranagar, The Garuda Mall is closer to my home now and i love the Cafe Coffee Day here.
Given above is the snap of The Garuda Mall and the next snap is The Forum .

11th March 2006

I have been out of my mind for the past 2 days. Have been recieving some kinda blank calls and junk calls from 3 numbers.Thought of getting them blocked but my phone service provider doesnt have the option of blocking the numbers!! i yelled at the customer care fellow and hung up.
It is always irritating when getting calls from unknown persons. It spoils the mood. Thats why I switch off my mobile during Office hours and put it in silent mode at night. I dont know why the person at the other end made a call, when they are silent while I am repeating the word "hello". Writing about phone calls, I remember one incident. I was sleeping and it was around 12.30 midnight. I got a call, I said hello and no response from other side. I just shouted at him saying " bastard , are you so bloddy jobless, I will file a F.I.R against you". After some time, I felt a lot for using the word "bastard"(I have learnt this word from Bangalore people). If they are not having to courage to speak, then why those idiots are make phone calls?

Was out today with my team for bowling!! was fun. Planning to go next month to goa with my office collegues for 4 days. Hope it works out great!! have never been to goa, want to go once.

Todays discussion was not as stimulating as can be, one of the major reasons being that we cud talk abt it for only 15 mins.

Finally after a long time I had a chance to discuss philosophy today with a bunch of folks. I used to do this quiet often when I was in Roorkee. But in bangalore, there's only friend I have with whom i could hold such a conversation. So am kinda rusty in that dept now.

We had started talking abt whether a person is product of his environment or does his basic nature also have a role to play. And as happens in such discussions, we kept jumping between topics and finally ended up discussing something as vague as the meaning of Instinct! :)

I believe that you cant brand a person to be a product of any one individual thing. Its a mix of a lot of things. Including the environment hes brot up in and his basic nature & values (values can again get hugely influenced by the environment). So what I am saying is that theres tight coupling between the two, and you cant just view it as a disjoint relationship.

Otherwise how else can you explain situations where 2 ppl brought up in very similar environments, react very very differently to different situations.

When I thought abt bloggin on this, I had so many ideas floating in my head... But now nothing coming into my mind. :(

Hope my brain cells r set in motion again seeing someone else's views on this...

Fridays !!!!

When I woke up this morning (it is Friday for the sake of God!), the world did not make sense to me, the same way it does not makes sense to me every weekday morning. Mondays are the worst, however. I wake up with the worst case of Monday morning blues ever recorded in the history of mankind. I get to work with the most disgruntled feeling. As the day wears on, the blues start to disappear and by 3 pm I start looking forward to Friday again.
Fridays are happy days. They are days meant for wrapping work up early, days meant for doing your thing. Put differently, they are days meant for living whatever pathetic little excuse we have for a life. Now I am not the partying kind. Officially because I don't like the noise and the hustle-bustle. Honestly because no one ever invites me to those cool parties. Either way, I do not know what a hangover feels like because I have never had one.
Thus my Saturday mornings start reasonably early and are meant to take care of the routine things like payment of bills, visit to the bank, and other mundane things that we regularly have to do to prevent our lives from becoming a living hell. Come Sunday and from about 6 pm onwards depression starts to set in, the intensity of which goes up and up till I hit the sack.
Anyway, these three paragraphs above can easily be skipped for they convey nothing that anyone with a head on their shoulders would not know or would want to be told. All except the first six words 'When I woke up this afternoon' because after my head had cleared up sufficiently enough for me to identify promos of those shows on television that I really really really hate, I wondered why I had not ever spewed my venom.
As soon as the thought flashed, the answer came too. As they say in showbiz, no publicity is bad publicity. Why should the shows I really really really hate have another platform where they are being talked about? But that does not mean I should not talk about them. I need to. I read this in someone's mail's signature line, 'If I am not for myself, then who will be for me? And if I am only for myself, then what am I? And if not now, when?'. I have absolutely no idea what it means (come on, can anyone understand it?) but this seemed like a pretty good place to use it.
Sadly, it still does not settle the matter. That brings up another point. When sayings, proverbs, idioms, similies, metaphors, oxymorons, etc. fail to settle the matter should they be stripped off their status? And if they are stripped off their status should those painfully inane shows be pulled off the air too? And if they were pulled off the air then how would I have made my 100th post on this blog?
Damn, I almost wrote that in the same style as that thing I read in someone's signature. Is this a sign?

Broken Hearts

GOd!!!really tired of myself and my bloody emotions. Feeling quiet upset again today. My emotions r either hitting a super high or all time low; With the all time low being re-defined every time. I really think I should go see a shrink, so that s/he can throw me in an asylum n lock me up.

Sometimes, I wonder if I can ever forget ...? I keep thinking back, the 1.5 yrs we spent together. And at the end, got dumped so awfully. And that with the comment: You are too nice a person for me...

Do you know anyone whose been dumped 'cuz he was too nice? Till now I never thot there could be a "too nice". If I am really that nice a person, why arent good things happening to me? Or has the almighty also convinientlt forgotten abt me?

Is it really possible to stop loving a person? Ever?

I was reading a blog and how some friend of Dawn's is depressed and is talking abt Suicide. Just reminds me of the time when I was going through a patch like that. I was totally sloshed after an office party where I missed him. That night was the one and only time I ever thot of suicide. A lot of ppl will term it as being a loser. To those folks: U should thank the god that u guys dont know how it is like. Trust me, I used to think like that myself. But after having gone through it, I can tell u its not something that one does by choice...

Why does he exist...

Tonight, I helped an old woman cross the road. And, though I did have that glow of 'doing your good deed for the day' for a while it quickly faded and I was overcome by a different kind of emotion.
Why do people have to grow old? Why can't they just decide to die someday without going through the misery of old age? Is old age life's way of handing back to us what we gave others during those moments of youthful indiscretion?
Every once in a while when I decide to do the grocery, I see old couples walking down the street carrying a few bags in their old wrinkled hands that contain the provisions that would get them through the week. Their children are probably sitting comfortably in their plush apartments somewhere in New York or Melbourne oblivious to what their parents have to go through just to make sure that food gets to their table.
Is it what I will go through once I get... I can't even get myself to say the 'O-L-D' word. It is too scary a thought that someday it will be my turn. I will be that man who has to walk the road everyday to buy provisions because he is too weak to carry a month's supply. Someday it will be I who has to seek help to cross the road. Someday these legs would be too old to walk a mile and the hands too old to hold a cup of tea. Someday I would die. That would be deliverance. But, why do I have to go through suffering before that?
I do not believe in the doctrine of karma that says people only get what they deserve. What is the fault of an infant born into a family so poor and undernourished that his mother is not strong enough to be able to breast feed him? However bad his karma might have been does it really justify his not getting food, the basic right of every animal on this planet?
May be it is not. May be it is just God's way of pleasing his sick ego that he is all pervading and powerful. May be that is how he gets his kicks by playing with us. May be God himself is not so perfect after all. May be all the praises that we sing for him are overrated. May be he is the devil's alter ego. Who knows?
But, what I do know for certain is that a person so infinitely capable of compassion as he is made out to be is not capable of causing hurt and sufferring. So, may be I am right. He is, for all that he wants us to think, just a slob like one of us. Or may be he is us. All of us, manifested into one supreme being having great power and, along with it, great chances of abusing that power.
That hurts. We all know that evil is supposed to do, well, evil. But is God not supposed to thwart all its schemes? Is that not the very purpose of his being? Then why is he not fulfilling that purpose? Perhaps he is just a conniving heartless soul. If all people were happy and content, would he not be out of business? Then how does he differ from Microsoft?
The truth is, he doesn't.
