Third Mistake of My Life

Read my last post and a couple of them before that. One can clearly make out in what kind of a situation I’m in now. No internet virtually. Office I have settle with my intranet page that is as vast as the www and guys above me keep telling me to search stuff in it. yeah i recently joined and training is still on. So its like i’m back to being the smallest kid on the block. but that only TIME can tell. All I can is as I’ve told always Lets See… Lets see…

So what do I do keep myself occupied? I read. And I read like hell. Almost done with 6 books since the past 2 weeks. Considering the fact that I still spend 8 hours a day sleeping ,around 8 hours in workplace and couple of hours everyday up and down cross cut street or around the race course, I’m into what I would like to put it as A BOOK READING SPREE. Now for all those non familiar people generally once i get into a spree its difficult for me to get out of it and I’ve a great brother who’s just given me 5 more books to contend with I AM HAPPY πŸ™‚ :).

So here it starts. Guess what the first book I read was??

The Three mistakes of my life by chetan bhagat, yeah it was my third mistake too. Yeah i was one of those failing engg aspirants who were spell stuck by the way 5 point someone put IITs to be. Only did I much later realize that such things couldn’t even happen in a movie let alone real life. Yeah that was my first mistake. Thinking the world of Alok and how he actually managed to get (in!!) his HOD’s daughter. Well there was a time when I actually brainwashed some of my friends into trying out to being the nutcase 5 pointer, thankfully Pondicherry Univ was liberal not make me below 7 point someone and after my final years project grades now I’m happily above 8 point someone. that’s still low considering the fact that there is an girl in my class who poignantly remains 9.5 point someone πŸ˜›

Now came the second mistake. I actually have a close call between one night @ the call center and the Vertigo by Ashok Banker. I did like Banker ramayana but the Vertigo was completely Bonkers and i actually found the same kind of feeling or sensation when I read the same books one after another. By now I ha grown up and knew that life wasn’t like that. But still hell man, if I started a book I had to finish it. That’s how I finished a lot of books. Even Gone with the wind, yeah I actually read it. That has a valid reason why to i read it which I will divulge when time comes.

Well.. now come the third biggest mistake of my life. It was the latest book Mr.Chetan Bahgat hero had written. First two pages I knew what was coming. Religious fanaticism, the earth quake, a bright young boy and chick whom he sorry, sleeps with so that he has to get into the worst trouble in that particular secnario. Well in the end it alwasy happens to be our hero who comes to the rescue. Can’t he find somebody else?? Well as I rule i decided no more of the Bhagat crap. And yeah I would seriously tell you about how one can actually curse himself for buying that book and spending a whole lotta time on it and in the end wanting to stop the office bus and feed the book to the cow that is passing by. Now I’m looking for a loser to swap books with me so that I can permanently get rid of it. I would even swap it to Blaguruswamy’s ANSI C. People I’m not joking. Want it?? please leave your e-mail id in the comment space. Gurantee that I would take care of even the courier charges for both the sides πŸ˜›

UPDATE: people people just now somebody who reads my blog as soon as its written made me google our ever rajnikanth like hero mr.Chetan Bhagat, Salman Khan’s now him. yeah he’s acting in a movie that’s called Hello. Its based on the second mistake and the night down where you get a call frm god Himself. K you have to watch the movie πŸ˜‰

INTERNET-MY LOVE :( MISS YOU

Every day in the morning it was the same. I had to do it. What else could I do?? It was vitually my life. It was my virtual life. He was there,bright as the shining sun. He was eating the world. In fact on the day he was available all new again, he was the most popular search that day. He was proud of it, I was more prouder. As soon as he sprang up, it was there, white a milk.There was nowhere I wanted him to take me that soon enough. That pure whiteness by itself gave joy.

I has to nothing much. Tell him where to go and direct him with the controlled enter ;). The green snake ran below, growing faster by the second. When it reached the destination and so had I. That joy was the most unsurpassable of all. It gave such a high that I smiled slowly to myself.

Usually they where there, two people surrounded my unnecessary crap.I had to tell them my favorite name and then some dots(it was stars also at time) and then I could speak to whomever or wherever they lived. I not only did this once,but atleast 5-6 times a day.It was my life… until I came here to Coimbatore, living away virtually from technology. INTERNET I MISS YOU. FIREFOX WAS MY LIFE.

P.S I’m here in cramped net center cum ticketing agencyΒ  which has people shouting about some reservation to UP. I don’t even have my own cabin and there was an inquisitive guy who wanted to pry into my comp over the monitor till i gave him a dirty look 😦

Indian Olympic Opening ceremony 2008 :P

Well I just finished watching the Beijing Olympics opening ceremony and it was awesome. Boy can the Chinese do it well. Now what if India had hosted the Olympics and the opening ceremony was in delhi?? or Mumbai atleast?? Well the first question that comes to my mind is “is there so much space somewhere near a city that we can develop an Olympic village??” I think we won’t find a spec of land till Gurgoan or Noida near Delhi, and Chennai you either have to reach tirupathy on north or pondicherry[:)] in south.

Now lets say we have found such a huge peice of land, even in middle of the andaman island. Who’s going to be who in the opening ceremony??

I half expect akshay (singh is king) kumar to slide down a rope from mid air carrying the Olympic torch. Yeah the artistic gymnasts would be put to shame by him. A thumbs up bottle in one hand and the torch in other. Taste the thunder baby. Now there will next be Shah Rukh King khan who will want to get into the contingent of athletes and other participants. A case will be shortly lodged with the Olympic association following which King Khan will give press conference stating that he will extend support to the athletes from outside. The dialogue we had been hearing from the left parties for such a long time.

Oh yeah, the last leg of the torch will be carried by none other than sachin tendulkar. Who else have we got? With a MRF bat in one hand and torch in other he will last leg to light the Olympic flame. Or you never know due to an aggravated groin injury or stress in the back after so many days of practice he might pull out. Fill in with M.S.Dhoni. Punch line “drink milk, not beer,carry torch”!!

Now that the we have decided who must carry the torch, saif also will want to be part of the torch relay. He looks good on screen, why shouldn’t he carry it?? Aamir will boycott the Olympics. Darsheel safary will be the youngest person in the history to actually carry the torch. Rajnikanth will be the stadium cheering the athletes and might actually in one more movie that has him winning 10 Olympic golds.

Now there has to be a lot of cultural programs that portray our 10,000 year old civilization. There has to be a stiff competetion between aishwarya rai and mallika sherawat on who will dance? Mallika might have to settle for the closing ceremony :P. We might also have somebody young from one of the top political families who is going to be in the spot light so in the next election campaign it can be an achievement in the manifesto. What can this country portray as the spirit of Olympics?? And even if we manage to find the people worthwhile who is going to shut up all these people who want to be in the media spotlight

P.S: This might be one of my worst posts yet. M1 certainly says this shouldn’t be published.
