I've always tried to take a pic of a fly when I catch one. Never could do it before. But finally the day has come. I caught an Adult house-fly and scanned it!!!!! I have that pic for the rest of my life!! And if any of you think, "what's so great about catching a house-fly??!!" yeah right, try doing it once!! You'll fall flat, all tired in less than five mins.!!! And inference... NOT ALL MEN ARE GOOD ENOUGH TO CATCH FLIES... WHAT REFLEXES I HAVE!!!

Eddie Vedder - Society...

Whenever you think of what this world is doing to ruin your beautiful little world, just listen to this, and it'll make you feel much lighter!!!

It's a mystery to me
we have a greed
with which we have agreed

You think you have to want
more than you need
until you have it all you won't be free

society, you're a crazy breed
I hope you're not lonely without me

When you want more than you have
you think you need
and when you think more than you want
your thoughts begin to bleed

I think I need to find a bigger place
'cos when you have more than you think
you need more space

society, you're a crazy breed
I hope you're not lonely without me
society, crazy and deep
I hope you're not lonely without me

there's those thinking more or less less is more
but if less is more how you're keeping score?
Means for every point you make
your level drops
kinda like its starting from the top
you can't do that...

society, you're a crazy breed
I hope you're not lonely without me
society, crazy and deep
I hope you're not lonely without me

society, have mercy on me
I hope you're not angry if I disagree
society, crazy and deep
I hope you're not lonely without me



Wow!!! What have we made of the world we live in?? We live in a nation that has a Great History, and the way I see it, that's where all the Greatness ends!!!!! No offense but, this is with regard to our way of seeing things in our creepy little world today.

We start with a cause for all we need and then think of the effect. No, its not a cause that leads to anything, it only works if its an effect of something that happens to us. We want new states within our borders and we want more and more, the reasons not so clearly known to us. NOT YET!! It is only tales of the greatness of other nations that we are left with and, seems like that is as real as we can get!!

Hell!! we need permits to travel states in our own nation, need to pay to each state separately which in itself is not a problem but, the mess around it?? We NEED to fight among ourselves for territory, castes, water, food, funds and just name it!! Is there anything we haven't screwed up for ourselves at least for a decade to come?? and if we are good enough even longer!!!

We are left with a prayer that has been given to us by a man of vision, and it remains unanswered even today.... it remains a prayer unanswered...

Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high;
Where knowledge is free;
Where the world has not been broken up into fragments by narrow
domestic walls;
Where words come out from the depth of truth;
Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection;
Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way into the
dreary desert sand of dead habit;
Where the mind is led forward by thee into ever-widening thought and action,
Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, let my country awake.

In fact, we qualify to the opposite in each line. We have thick domestic walls in our society, ones that have made themselves strong enough to last for centuries!! There's just a bunch of losers who do all this for the rest of us and the nation. The so called SELFLESS LEADERS of the nation. I feel and know, what we need is SELFISH leaders and ones who don't shy away from saying that they are. After all, SELFISHNESS is a virtue most attributed to the Humans and that's how things work for us in this world.

Let us all not just pray for this prayer to come true... but become GODS of our own world and choose and decide what we need and see to it that what we get is what we need...

Hello all!! This is what I said would be a prominent and a very serious part of my blog. Its called BRAIN BALL. If you can guess by the name, its to do with your sole weapon, and the way you let it roll into unexplored territories, your mind. New thoughts, new ideas, great theories, all building up into a WAY OF LIFE... It'll all be unleashed here... one after the other, and I'm sure you'll be left craving for more (I can't assure you exactly why though, i.e. to contradict or to ponder and ask yourself for more answers to the questions that would arise. Also, let me assure you, that the contradictions wouldn't find a significant part of me bothering about them!!!).

What I can assure you, is the lack of insubstantial theories under the label BRAIN BALL, not now, not ever. Also, I'd appreciate if you guys can come up with areas on which we need to reach beyond the horizon and achieve clarity, primarily for ourselves and maybe anyone else who has second thoughts about these ideas.

To say, one thing that I've really had on my mind for long is the way we've managed to classify ourselves into two broad categories, MALE AND FEMALE, not just to stand out as two different sexes but, as two different species. Which is actually fine if not for the inferiority that is accredited to one of the two sexes. Which one?? all of us know!! I'll be coming up with something concrete in a few days on the same thought and my observations about the same issue. Until then, keep looking into your sulci and gyri for the long lost lush green pastures... I'll be waiting to receive your thoughts. Until then,



SPLOOSH!!!! Just that first dive into the pool in months and, the liberation my senses felt!!! Just have to make a splash yourself to understand what it takes off you and what it gets on you... Its the same feeling that made a certain someone run out naked on the streets yelling EUREKA... EUREKA!!!! The force, its too good to play around with, the buoyant force. Water's the only place I can float, fly, sink, sail and do a LOT MORE!!!!

WOW!!! I love water!!! That makes me not a fish though. I can live without having to throw myself into it. But its just that I choose not to live so!!!!! HELL, I'm amphibious!!! I guess I'll breed on land and grow old in water...

Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Naa... Maane Tu Ya Maane Naa...

Jaane tu, ya jaane naa....
Maane tu, ya maane naa....

That's how the movie begins...

Don't have time for movies, tired of regular hindi stuff.... Well, I'll come straight to the point. This one's a regular love story, and the LOVE PART being discovered towards the fag end of the movie.

But, just thought I'll tell you this.... the music's by A R Rahman, atleast thats what they're saying!!!! I wouldn't have known if not for the credits. All the songs, the background scores, fit right into the movie.

Movies carry an energy with them, some kind of energy, good / bad, high / low. This one's just the kind that you'll need to watch the movie and also keep you going a long way after it!!!! Just the theme that it leaves behind with you..... wow!!! All the characters in the movie, have a very definite role. Perfection is what they've left behind on the screens.

Wonder if the "a" in the Aamir Khan productions stands for ACE!!! The attention to detail in each scene is just evident in each frame. Naseeruddin Shah, Ratna Pathak, Paresh Rawal, all play small but, definitive roles. Thats what you'll love about the movie. However, the story could get very predictable as you're going through it but, that's what excites you about THIS ONE. Its the same prediction but, in a very funny way.

The story, is definitely about love but,

Jaane tu, ya jaane naa....
Maane tu, ya maane naa....

And, that's pretty much how it finally ends. Yet, it still goes on and on and on.... And the best part is, the tune of these lines is to sing them out of tune!!! So, all those guys who're not so good with the tunes, this one's definitely for you and, also the rest of us!! So, if you can't get yourself and your someone special to watch this movie, you may not really miss out on anything but, if you do manage to do so, you'll be left with a lots of something.... for sure.

So, waiting to see how bright your stars are, click here for tickets

This is what I felt last night, waiting for the results of an interview I had given a couple of hours back, my first one too!!! And I'm not the kind of person who really attaches emotions to the things I do and so it shows in my work and the way I go about it. And last night was no exception!! But, good things, remain good, no matter what!!!

So, we were waiting for the results of our interview to be announced and most of them were a little queasy during the 30 odd minutes we waited. But I, as usual, was saying...


In the meanwhile, Hitesh started playing this beautiful song called "Laree Choote" from the movie "Ek Chalees Ki Last Local". The words fit right INTO the emptiness between the Interview and the Results!!! Here are a few lines from the song...

Woh kehte hai na,
Jo hota hai acche ke liye hota hai...
Galat kehte hai.

Kismat ka khel hai saara
Phirta tha mein awaara
Yeh kya se kya hogaya
Chaar din ki zindagani
Har pal ek nai kahani
Kya tha mein kya ban gaya

Kya hua jo laari chooti
Jeevan ki gaadi looti
Khwaab hai to mujhko naa jaga
Zindagi ek pal mein saali
Yun palat gayee humari
Jhooth hai to mujhko na bataa

Karlo jo bhi karna hai
Hota hai jo hona hai
Guzra to pal yeh phir na aayega
Kya bura hai kya bhala hai
Waqt hi shayad khuda hai
Ho jane do phir dekha jayegaa

Kya hua jo laari chooti
Jeevan ki gaadi looti
Khwaab hai to mujhko naa jaga
Zindagi ek pal mein saali
Yun palat gayee humari
Jhooth hai to mujhko na bataa

Woh Kehte hai na,
Jo hota hai acche ke liye hota hai...
Sahi kehte hai.
