I'm tired as hell

I want vacation on Easter break

I want Devbagh

Yea, what's the story ppl???

Hey any one wanna guest write on my blog.. annonymity will be granted... lemme knw..

It's hot in Bangalore.. and it's not even proper summer yet.. and there are no mangoes yet, there is no water.. there is no electricity...

I'm working this weekend... n the nxt week till the easter break... cut short one day by Saturday

I want the beach. Fresh NON-DUSTY air



Now that all that's out... The Indian cricket team's been at the butt end of most jokes in this country... sad to say.. for when they left they were heroes.. who when they came back were well.. zeroes...

It's sad actually. What's sadder though is that the National Sudoku Cha…

Bye Bye Bob Woolmer

I don't know Bob Woolmer. Yellow teeth n silver hair, red skin from the Pakistani Sun... But when I got to work, more people seemed to be concerned about the fact that he'd died, than the match that India had played with Bangladesh. That was a topic, I believe anyways, that a lot of us have buried. No one wants to talk of bad things.

I wonder how the Pakistani team feel... Having exited the cup, and the loosing their coach. Was he someone they respected? I mean, it's one thing to say he was, to the media.. and another thing to actually think it, and feel it. How did he feel, with the early exit of his team?

Were Greg Chapell to die, what would we in India say? He's not exactly loved here, most Indians view the man with much animosity.. I don't know why. Maybe cause he says it like it is. Maybe its cz he's fond of experimenting, often to the detriment of the team. Sometimes to reveal hidden talent. Like Shantakumaran Sreesnath I believe.

So India will go in today t…
OK.. so i only just got to see that India lost to Bangladesh... which is pretty damned surprising.. I'm sure that when i get to work tonight.. I'm never going to hear the end of how we lost to Bangladesh... and not to mention all the long faces that everyone's going to have.

I'm gonna stick to team India... cz i wouldn't even watch cricket if we weren't playing it.. and I'm gonna say GO INDIA!


Welcome Iron Maiden to Bangalore...

And our boys on the Caribbean Crusade... ALL THE LUCK TO YOU!!!!!!!!!



talking to the Canadians... cold beer in the morning... thats a life.

Farhaad n Emma n Beer... You don't know what you've missed till you get it again. And realize it fills up the little empty pockets in life. Not all, but some of them.

Works been ultra stressfull. Just grande stressfull. It would be hard to even begin to point out where it started or how it's become such a nightmare.. but it has, and I must say the thought of quitting's been running through my head constantly.

But tell me, don't all sucessfull ppl say that they've been through shit, through hell n back to go where they are? And do I want to be sucessfull, hell yeah!

And there have been silver linnings. little buffers that are softening the blows of work. N i thank all of them, the ppl that I go to work here... they're all just about as resilient n able n strongheaded as I am.... or maybe even more.. N u knw, cheers to tht!



You know what you want to do when your in love..... climb way on top of the tallest roof of the biggest building and tell the whole world, as far as u can see, as far as they can hear that you're in love. And then u go looking for the microphone to try n get to the millions of ppl who haven't heard you, so you can tell them too.



Guess what? U were right all along. I am juvenille. So what? Bloody sue me.


Lately, there have been some things that I've started realizing.

Bangalore is a beautiful city. And I mean mostly old Bangalore, the inner city.. not the new sprawling city. I was taking a bus ride yesterday to meet Asra's betrothed... through the city, in the evening, just as the sun was setting and I realized how much of the city I seem to have internalized without even realizing that I have. So now I wonder-

- if maybe I love plants so much, cz of all the parks that line my city. I never realized that the park on MG Road was so pretty, till yesterday from the Auto, and the yellow lamp lights cast its glow over the flowers that had been rooted in cirlces around a figurine of Gandhi statue. Not to mention the setting sun, and the collective sigh of millions of people as the days' heat showed signs of dissipating. And the stretch of road frm Queens to MG Road... I've never seen all the trees dotting the area... and I wonder.. (and if anyone who's reading this knows, …

The Bills and The News

It's been a busy little week.. busier than normal standards... And I've realized, that the monthly bliss experienced on the 1st of every mth, is shortlived.

Because on the 1st of every mth... also come bills.. electricity, cable, water, telephone, net bill. And I'm actually scared to Bill Pay: this thing tht the bank has, where u hook up your bank accnt to the bills that are due, and theres a direct debit from your account. Mostly because I like looking at my account statement and seeing money in there. Like a full figure, and knowing that all that is mine, and all that came from working day in and day out.

And then on the second of every mth, it's time to withdraw all the money that needs to be taken out to pay the bills: I dunno how you guys do it, but I like withdrawing all the cash, and then taking each of the individual bills, and wrapping the bill around the money, so that when the men come to collect the money, it's given to him along with the bill and he can…
