Life's one big charade,
Dont wanna be a parta this facade,
Dont wanna loose myself in this meaningless run
wanna turn my face towards the gentle breeze
and bask in the warm, soft glow of the sun...

Sounds like the lyrics of the song na (hehe...yeah rght :P) ..but its written by yours truly...and no ppl, I havent just written it of the cuff.... sometimes I feel like doin xactly wat I've written..... walking in a place where there is a gentle breeze, or gazin up at the stars(and no ppl , I'm not 3 yrs old.... I just like lookin at the stars and clouds ook :D).... or walking down the beach and feeling the saand between my toes......or holding a round smooth pebble, that has been warmed by the sun in my hand.hmmm all nice wonderfull feelings :)....(or mayb its just tht I'm so tired I'm wittin gibberish)...wateva hope it makes u'all feel better :D

U ppl cant imagine the traffic commin back home from work, just wayyyy 2 much :D....a journey which should ideally take 15 min takes 45 (enuff time to go 2 Kerala and come back...hehe ;) ).

Hmmmm (now who begins a post with this... :D)....I'm in kinda a contemplative mood 2day. As we grow up , we realise we tend to change and so do people around us. What we dont realise is tht when this change comes kinda suddenly, where will we turn to look for answers . Mayb we dont find them, mayb we do?? its definitely not an easily answered question :D... life goes on I guess...despite having not found answers, despite all the soul searching, despite evrything has to go a macbare puppet show...and when things hapen tht we wished didnt we can only ut u our hands and ask tht great puppet master in the sky why me ?

Such simple things do seem 2 gv me happiness :D....hmmm or like mayb sayin "thnk u" 2 ppl who are stuck in a thankless job, like mayb the bus conductor.....when I said "thnk u" to the conductor 2day after he gv me my bus ticket, I swear I saw a smile on his face :)...ppl do tell me wat is the thing tht makes u hapy :) ?

What does one write after a long, hard day at work(long it was...but did I work hard...hmmm lemme thnk now...actually I was reading an FRD...geesh tht takes time :D).

Hmmm how 'bout I post a joke. It goes sumthin like this:

Once upon a time, there was a software engineer who used to develop programs on his Pentium machine, sitting under a tree on the banks of a river. He used to earn his bread by selling those programs in the Sunday market. One day, while he was working, his machine tumbled off the table and fell in the river. Encouraged by the Panchatantra story of his childhood (the woodcutter and the axe), he started praying to the River Goddess. The River Goddess wanted to test him and so appeared only after one month of rigorous prayers. The engineer told her that he had lost his computer in the river. As usual, the Goddess wanted to test his honesty. She showed him a match box and asked, "Is this your computer ?" Disappointed by the Goddess' lack of computer awareness, the engineer replied, "No." She next showed him a pocket-sized calculator and asked if that was his. Annoyed, the engineer said "No, not at all!!" Finally, she came up with his own Pentium machine and asked if it was his. The engineer, left with no option, sighed and said "Yes." The River Goddess was happy with his honesty. She was about to give him all three items, but before she could make the offer, the engineer asked her, "Don't you know that you're supposed to show me some better computers before bringing up my own ?"
The River Goddess, angered at this, replied, "I know that, you stupid idiot! The first two things I showed you were the Trillennium and the Billennium, the latest computers from IBM!" So saying, she disappeared with the Pentium!!

Moral: If you're not up-to-date with technology trends, it is better keep your mouth shut and let people think you're a genius, than to open your mouth and remove all doubt!!!

hmmm this joke really cracked me up, but actually speaking can u imagine how many millions of IT professionals(well educated with high payin jobs) are there in India (including urs truly) , who dont know a s*** 'bout new technologies....hmmmm I hope this situatn changes soon and we do hv ppl with good knowledge of new technology and we start working with all these technologies(ahh this is the I dunno nation lover in me speaking :D)

On a more lighter note...'tis the season of pears again...yeah I like pears a lot(hence my happiness u c ppl ;)). Hmm there is also tht heat thingi I keep mentioning(which I swear is simply increasing day by day :D, and which I conviniently escape by sitting in the office A.C..hehe :D). And so ppl I leave u to ponder over a few thoughts(ermmm if u really thnk u want 2 ponder over wat I just said ;))

Now since I'm on a roll, tght I mght write another post(This is what happens when ur bored silly.....u thnk of boring other ppl :D). And can I hear a faint "Tsk tsk" in the background...ppl thinking ," Gals as it is talk wayy 2 much...this chick here just needs another excuse to jabber :D...and sooo she blogs"....hmmmmmph...ppl u shudnt thnk such things...this blog mght be a way into my innermost thoughts, my true feelings (ermmm actually maybe ur probably right...I do luv to talk ;)...and innermost thoughts..haha wats tht :P)....nyways tght of describing my day here.
How 'bout I start with yesterday and then finish of with today(tht'll make this blog nice and long I'm thinkin...and ur thinkin will she like ever stop..haha ;)). Hmmm yest I went shopping....yes ppl in the course of this blog(common I'm sure u'll read it later too)...u'll find tht I luv shoping (Dont all gurlz..ur thinkin...and I say not all gurlz dont necessarily like shopping). So there I was in the Bandra sun(Did I mention tht I was an idiot in the previous post...well heres like proof...who goes out in the sweltering mumbai heat..??)roaming around hill road, with a friend who wanted to do her easter shopping and wat do I see...(ermmm obiviously the road :P)..other then tht loadsa shops ..basically shoppers paradise...but not b4 wasting(according to my mom...but according to me well spent) 550 on a cute white top with light green piping in globus :D...and then I see this strawberry pink top...for like dirt cheap...and I decide wat the heck will buy it and then I feel hungry so we decided to eat, go to this atrociously priced restaurant and have a grilled sandwhich(costs 80 bucks..ouch...I'm thinkin...cud've bought another top..hehe), buy shoes and a belt(150 total...after a little bargaining obvi), and am home (still comlainin 'bout the friggin heat).
See I kept it quite short :D

and here I am writing it in a blog post.

Authors note: And no pl future blogs wont be so lonjg :P


Resurrected from the ashes

Now you're thinkin which idiot on this planet names their first post "Resurrected from the ashes"..... Does she like thnk tht shes some sorta phoenix or some such mythical creature...but people there is a reason for this name. And now without rambling further I thnk I should give u'all the reason lest you people go to sleep.. :D

And here is the reason...drum roll please......tish tish tish tish(worst imitation of a drumroll ever ppl!!!)....hehe..actually eons ago(well not xactly ookie...I'm like exaggerating here...but it sure does feel like eons ;) ) I used to write a blog..which was read by a coupla ppl(now I'm soooo not tellin how many :P), and then in a looooong story which involves breaking down of comps, a bunch of idiots who had to submit a friggin B.E project(of which I'm case u didnt know), then running around to find a job and the rest of those trivial things we pursue in this journey called life( thts the philospher in me dont be alarmed I dont get philosiphical and all often ;) )...ermmm I'm not really tellin the story here ppl....just mentioning factors and such....anyways my poor blogging died a natural death. Then on a bored Sunday afternoon I read a friends blog....and wat inspired me(ermmm I guess inspired is too strong a word for me....just well made me get off my lazy ass) to write is somethin I dunno :D
and here I am writing this blog.

Lets hope my l'ill blog survives this time around ;)
