a new year post will be too dramatic, i know.

but i think it was a good year. i have become more aware of my inner and outer worlds. my ee-he-nglish has improved for sure. and i have become more tolerant of my stupid and smart decisions.

i am not the one who advocates talking too much about himself.

there will be extreme moments of desperation and frustration, but lets just hope we remember that its always good to be alive.

Captain Renault: [to Ilsa] I was informed that you were the most beautiful woman ever to visit Casablanca. That was a gross understatement.

17th December, is it? I feel sad. And I want to remember it. K I A.

my sister cleared NET. So that is a good news.I want to remember that as well.

it's about time that we take responsibility of our actions. sorry. its about time that i take responsibility of my actions. and dont feel sorry about it. i want to be anything but sulky. we are all decaying organic matter, remember?

yun hee baras baras kali ghata barase
hum yaar bheeng jaayein
iss chahat ki baarish mein
meri khuli khuli lathon ko suljhaaye
tu apni ungliyon se
main toh hun isshi khwahis mein..

“However the City of Boston, played largely by itself, is convincing.”


Haha. I love reading reviews of the movies on IMDB by users. It establishes your faith in human intellect and serves as the reality check – you know like..There are people smarter and funnier than you are.


So, this particular quoted line was written in one of the many reviews for ‘The Departed’. I am a fan of the movie btw. But, then I read these reviews. And my faith in my own intellect is volatile and I now know for sure that the movie would not be as great as I had taken it for in my first viewing.


So there are few things that I must write about.


So few weeks back, Chaure visited me. We were four friends together and we went to the pizza hut to obviously eat pizzas. So there was this waitress (for lack of a better word) who attended to us. She took our orders with a smile, came after some time after taking our orders to inform us that it would take ten more minutes. I think she served us as well. Anyway, the point is that she took good care of us. And when she came to give us the bill, we found hand-written ‘it was a pleasure! J’ on it. We said that ‘apna number nahi diya yaar’ and laughed. Chaure brought it to our notice that the girl was standing just behind us and we should watch our mouths. Anyway, so we tipped her 50 bucks (we should have given her 100!) and returned while she held the door open again with a smile. Pizza huut girl - whoever you are – I just want to tell you that we all love you from bottom of our hearts. You made our day!


That was like four week before btw! And I wanted to write it. and now its written.


So we went and watched Tum Mile. I had always wanted to watch Imran ‘Chummi Singh’ Hashmi’s movies. And so I watached Tum Mile. I was so depressed watching the movie that I took the oath of not watching any movies in theatre any more. I think I am generally pissed at the artificialness of the whole ‘shit-but-pretending-to-be-more’ movies. More over, I think I am generally pissed for not being able to enjoy mediocre movies. When I watched ‘Kidnap’ by paying 315 bucks, I at least enjoyed watching seeing Mannisha Lamba and whatever she was willing to show on screen. I could not do that here even when I had more of the opportunity here with Soha Ali Khan. This movie actually made me realize the implication of freedom of expression and the necessity to monitor its exploitation. You produce something and its there to stay. Its not good enough to have faith in people’s ability to judge whats appropriate for them. You produce shit and its going to stink.


Anyway, I did watch Kurbaan and actually liked it. Good job overall.


Anyway, so I have become very quotable lately. At least in my own opinion. ‘Life, at least in short term, is not fair’. Earlier, it was just ‘Life is not fair’.


Me and my friend were once standing outside of the office and it started raining in the full sunshine. He said he wanted to see ‘money’ fall down from sky. I said ‘water is most easily the most valuable thing in earth’. Seriously. Most important things in life are often free. And just so we are not very bored by the predictability of the blog here is a quote from Fight Club.


Tyler Durden: “Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don’t need. We’re the middle children of history, man. No purpose or place. We have no Great War. No Great Depression. Our Great War’s a spiritual war… our Great Depression is our lives. We’ve all been raised on television to believe that one day we’d all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars. But we won’t. And we’re slowly learning that fact. And we’re very, very pissed off.”
