Happy Journey to me........

Off to the Andamans!



Today would go down as a memorable day in my diary. Me, Krishna and Atul went to a water reservoir about 20 kilometers away from the city and went boating and trekking, (well, sort of) there.

Amidst all this, the unrelenting humidity of this landscape was trying to kill us with dehydration through perspiration, our saviour came in the form a sweet little drizzle and later on the cool breeze through the hilly highway.

Kabhi khud pe hansa main.....

... kabhi khud pe roya.... That's the lyrics of the first Indian Rock album sung in Hindi! I like that track!

Today was a dull day. The day began at 3 in the noon or something.... I was lazing on the Sofa when Atul came and we took off to some outdoorsy action. It was hot and humid outside as it is right now and is very irritating!

Life in South India is so much better weather-wise and otherwise. Us North Indians have a philosophy which is very non-violent in nature but still has something wrong about it. It is- "Live and let die." Maybe, it's the weather. South India which has a much gentler climate produces much gentler people. I was born in Spring so maybe that's why I am so gay-ishly gentle. Hehe!

Today, as I was riding through the busy streets of Gwalior on the eve of Janmashtmi- a festival celebrating the birth of Lord Krishna... an unexplainable aura gripped me and led me through the festive spirit of India-ness. It is a special feeling to feel Indian, rarely it happens but when happens, it leaves you with goosefleshes and a glitter in the eye.

People had come down to the roads to celebrate the birth of their favourite deity. Such love, such faith, such enthusiasm.... it fixed a smile on my face....

Human pyramid in the middle of the road to break the matki, all the order in the chaos.... people here love to celebrate the fact that they can celebrate. I am proud to be one of them!

Fort Today

Today, me and Krishna went to the Gwalior fort. Had fun playing with the Sony Handycam I got from one uncle....

Have a look-

No one's perfect in this world.... situations don't let us be. To attain perfection is to attain a perfect sense of judgement but there is no such thing as perfect judgement because every situation has flip sides.

At times, we need to make judgements, decisions and these may not fit well with the standards of morality or the wishes of our near and dear ones. As there is no visible moral police that guides our moves. Our own sense of morality is more often than not blurred by the bias of self-satisfaction.

So, that's how bad people are born!


Talked to Vinny yesterday. She is still her bubbly self. I am still my charming self but still, there's something between us that's missing. Funny how life creates these voids which only heal with time. You cannot try to create the chemistry yourself, chemistry creates itself; that's it! If all goes well, I'll be leaving for Bangalore to wish her a happy birthday....

We talked for about an hour.... there was so much to catch up to but we were not rushing it....! That's a good thing.

Ok... that's it for now.

Reading habit.

Sometimes we project ourselves as people who we want to be or who we want to be like. I am an example. I don't think I read or have read enough to claim myself as a well-read person. The first few lines or pages of a novel... knowing the names of 19th century English writers doesn't make me who I want to be.

Reading a book requires some amount of patience and a lot of dictionary work... which is not my cup of coffee. (I like coffee over tea.)

Reading a bad book requires none of the above but, c'mon... I have to develop a taste. I mean J K Rowling and Chetan Bhagat might be the current hot shot favourites but, they cannot help you if your expectations are comparing them with P G Wodehouse and Thomas Hardy.

I wish there was a shortcut for this....

Not for you to know...

Well, I have failed to understand people and how miserably! It is not as extreme in everyone's case as I think. It is not always best friends or no friends, friends or enemies, enemies or nobodies etc etc... with everyone.

I think I tend to over-react at times. She doesn't love me. I don't get any love signals. Why do I have to ask "WHY" always. It is a fact, not a theory.

Anyway, that's gibberish for the uninformed... hehehe...

I watch Bachna Ae Haseeno today. Movie's good. Good romantic movie. Ranbir's a star already!


Here I won't try to be artsy-phartsy. This is the place where I will try to be more regular on the cost of being cool and intellectual.

So.... without further a due....
