!! lunching with strangers !!

I had always belived that I am a guy who is never uncomfortable with anybody, People had approached with varied thoughts and in wide spectrum to me, and always found themselves being cheered.

But from past few months I have been lunching and dining with almost strangers. I use to belong to a country wherein everybody knows everybody, I had always enjoyed dining and lunching, coz tere ad always been a crowd around me. But now the feel has vanished....

I hope when I return back, I shall enjoy my sessions of lunch and dinner I use to enjoy 6 months back...

Roshan kiye usne apne ghar ke chirag mere lahoo se,
Dareeche (carpet) banaye usne apne ghar ke mere jism se,
- HE lighted his lanterns, with blood of mine,
and had carpet of my skin on his floor.

Meine to bus maange the kuch pal saath apne sanam ke,
Per usne na jaane kyun diye darwaze, dozakh ke mere liye,
-I only asked for few moments with my beloved,
But don't know why HE opened the doors to Hell for me.

Aakhir kiss tereh samjhayun usko, Nahin maagi hai khudai maine,
Bus de de kuch lamhe chain ke mujhko, mere apne sanam ke saath.
-Alas! How do I explain to HIM, I am not asking for HIS Heavenly ABODE,
All I desire, few quite moments with my very own beloved.

Hum bhi hai race mein

Long time back I found out this quote somewhere, "Even of you win a RAT race you are still a RAT", then I removed myself from all the races. Now another thought is getting straight into my mind, "Doesn't matter if it's a RAT race, but to be in this Olympic, you have to win some races, then why not this one."

anyhow....with this thought lets get some straight originals,

Nahin maloom humko ki, kiss kader mohabbat kerte hum,
Per kya bigad jaata uss khuda ka, jo aaj hume usse keh lene diya hota.

Jaane kanha kanha se log aaye, aur thokar maar ke chale gaye,
Aur hum jaane kab se tere intezar mein, masjid per baithe rahe,

Jab bhi girta tha, aansoon ka katra,
kuch azeeb sa armaan jaag uth-ta tha,
tere liye her shaam guzari humne dariya kinare,
per na jaane kyun tu phir bhi na aayi janaaze per hamare.

yun he nahin uth-ti thee aah mere dil se,
yun he nahin hum shaamil the teri mehfil mein,
yun he nahin aaye tum aaj masjid mein meri,
aur kha ke thokar yun he nahin hum baithe tere darwaze per,

kuch to kahin hai

pata nahin kyun....pichli kuch post se likhna kuch mushkill sa hota ja raha hai....New Post click kerte he the mind is getting blank and there seems nothing to write about and then all of a sudden after I quit the window, there shall be loads and loads to write about...

anyhow...I think its happening becoz, there is some difference in what and how I wanna say to what I write and convey finally...

lemme check for few new posts by writing whatever comes to my mind to write...

!! Jalta hai Badan !!

Pyaas Bhadki hai, Sare Shaam se jalta hai badan...Ishq se kehdo, le aaye kahin phir se sawan....Jalta hai badan....

The oppurtunities are immense, so are the desires...and that is why "Saree shaam se jalta hai Badan"

Ppl at back home country are finding gals to get married, getting engaged, having parties, going on to a reception, venting emotions, organising night outs, planning honeymoon & eloping, settling there life, having fun, teasting, playing pranks, making all the world go round !! What the heck I am doing here.... :(

Sitting in office, making new friends, trying to subside down in culture, spending weekends at Beaches, roaming around, cooking my own food, planning my moves, learning powerplay, reading novels, watching movies, celebrating birthdays, missing home, writing blogs, mails, and letters, listening to music, preparing to go back...and what not.... !! What the heck they are doing there.....

song changes : Ishq kabhi kariyo na....

Is there anything, anybody waiting for me really other than my parents...When I was thinking about it....there were some revealations...Except for my mom, nobody is really waiting for me.

Ppl are waiting for the fun they have with me, they are waiting for the parties, I shall give them, they are waiting for the globglobbin talks, for continous chattering in my presence. They are waiting for the ease and comfort they have when I am there....

Song changes : Teri kurti sexy lagdi way....teri kurti sexy....

There are very few (less then fingures in my hand) ppl waiting for Jhappi (tight embrace) from me. Then there are several others who shall be there only for a handshake and several several others who are there for only a "Hi"

This time when I am retruning it feels as if I am too world revolves round my mom and nobody else this time.

She wants nothing from me. She only wants to be with me for some time. She don't want any talks, any chattering, any promises, any gifts, any plans, any party....a simple no nothing. Thus and only thus I am not taking anything for her. I shall simply go to home...touch her feet and shall be with her...till the time I want.....No plans this time about holidays, travelling etc.

We shall be preparing lot of allo ke paranthe...and other goodies...

This time she has prepared for me kilos of Achar, Paapad etc etc etc....sweets and what not...I shall take all the stuff to chennai and shall work on the plan which shall makes us all live together under one roof....thats the plan when I am returning back....

so thats the only reason.....

!! Woh Beete Din Yaad Hain !!

Listened this the whole day today !! Last song here....

Woh Beete Din Yaad Hain
Woh Palchhin Yaad Hain

Guzaare Tere Sung Jo
Lagake Tujhe Ang Jo

Woh Muskana Tera
Woh Sharmana Tera

December Ka Sama
Woh Bheegi Bheegi Sardiyaan

Woh Mausam Kya Hua
Na Jaane Kahan Kho Gaye
Bus Yaaden Baaki...baaki....

Woh Beete Din Yaad Hain,
Woh Palchhin Yaad Hain,

Guzaare Tere Sung Jo
Lagake Tujhe Ang Jo

Mujhse-Lipatna Tera
Aur Sir-Jhukana Tera

Abhi Hai Dil Mein Mere
Hothon Ki Woh Narmiyaan

Aag Lagake Tum
Na Jaane Kahan Kho Gaye
Bus Yaaden Baaki

Unaizanasim: Love in a forbidden state.....

Unaizanasim: Love in a forbidden state.....

Here is an attempt to have this beautiful post in Hindi/Urdu. Unaiza has written something really great. I donno whether I was able to do justice with translation. tell me...

Aakhir ishq bhi paecheeda nikla,
Na he ye khwaheeshein hamari thin,
aur na hee kismat hamare haath thi,
yaar sab kahin chhut gaye,
aur ishq ka saazon samaan nikla yun khaali,

Aakhir kiss tereh gujarti thi ye jindagi tab,
akhir kaise roshan rahega ye jigar ab,

Na he gulaabon mein ab woh shokhi hai,
Aur na he in ne-gahon mein neend aur dil mein karaar,
jo bhi dikha woh sirf aur sirf maya thi,

aakhir kab tak chaloge tum ???
iss dard ke saath muskuraate ???

Ek antheen yatra,
Na he kahin nazar aata hai aasman,
aur na he kadam hain kisi dagar per,

kisko pataa hai, kanha rehti hai ye kismat,
aakhir kisko bulayon, aakhir kisko karoon pyaar,
aakhir kaun sunega mere dil ki ye daastan,

Na he ab udti hain titliyan,
aur na he haritima hai ab iss kusha mein,
Ud gaya hai rang kyun, nahin hai ab aaftab kyun,
Ud gayi hai hawa mein se yun nami,
ki ab shabnum bhi hai dukhi aur nitaant akeli,

kitna azeeb hai ye mausam,
jab saari khwaheeshein hain gumsum au pareshan..

Ab kuch bhi kehna mushqil hai mujhe
kyunki Ishq ab vurjit hai mujhe..

Na jee bhar ke dekhaa, na kuch baat ki

Na jee bhar ke dekhaa, na kuch baat ki, Bari aarzoo thi mulaqaat ki,
Kayee saal se kuch Khabar hi nahin, Kahaan din guzaaraa kahaan raat ki.
- Neither had a look with heart's content, nor said anything, though there was a deep desire of a meeting,
- For several years didn't had any news, of where the days were spent & where the nights were blown.

Some ppl might wonder, "Hirdu is saying this", "The chatterbox of the town", "Oh Shucks Man !! He who changed the way ppl feel, he is not able to say !!!"

Well, these are not only the lyrics of a old hindi song. This is the truth, which not only I have faced but also know of several other guys and gals who also have....

so dear folks !! No matter what happens, never let this condition to arrive when thy have to say the above lyrics for someone very near.

whle watching bunty & bubbly

A successful man is one who makes more money than his wife can spend. A successful woman is one who can find such a man.

A man is a person who will pay two dollars for a one dollar item he wants.
A woman will pay one dollar for a two dollar item that she doesn't want.

To be happy with a man you must understand him a lot and love him a little. To be happy with a woman you must love her a lot and not try to understand her at all.

Marriage: A woman marries a man expecting he will change, but he doesn't -- A man marries a woman expecting that she won't change and she does.

Men marry because they are tired. Women marry because they are curious. Both are disappointed.

A woman worries about the future until she gets a husband, while a man never worries about the future until he gets a wife.

A woman will always cherish the memory of the man who wanted to marry her. A man cherishes the memory of the woman who didn't.

Married men live longer than single men. But married men are a lot more willing to die.

Any married man should forget his mistakes - no use in two people remembering the same thing.

The Battle: A woman has the last word in any argument. Anything a man says after that is the beginning of a new argument.

There are two times a man doesn't understand a woman - before marriage and after marriage.

Husbands: Only two things are necessary to keep one's wife happy. One is to let her think she is having her way, and the other is to let her have it.

Married men live longer than single men. But married men are a lot more willing to die.

Any married man should forget his mistakes - no use in two people remembering the same thing.

The Battle: A woman has the last word in any argument. Anything a man says after that is the beginning of a new argument.

Have to meet so many people, attend so many functions, Live the life which i have missed in last 6 months here, so many events have happened in last 6 months, that I have stopped keeping count of surprises.

Song changes "Milo na tum to hum ghabraye, milo to aankh churayein"

I have missed a lot of guys and gals, their talks, their gestures, their smile, their sadness, their lunch, their dinner, their morning pranks, their voices.

Just 30 days and I shall be able to respire in the Air of My own India, I shall be to nag with my own people, I shall be able to smile at & with my own people. The taste shall improve, the vision shall enhance, the presence of Human Touch in me shall improve. I shall be jogging on my own roads, I shall be standing in queue of my own people for lunch and dinner.

I shall be oogling the girls I know and also have the chance of oogling the ones I doono :) all the same. And certainly, gossips shall improve a lot.

Guys and Gals --- Bus aa raha hoon mein, Mera intezar karna...Even if nahin bhi ker rahe ho to bhi koi ferk nahin padta...Hirdu to Hirdu hai....Woh to pahuch he jayega...

Song Changes, "Dhanno ki aankhon mein..."

Once I am there...Sms Spamming in ensured again...Before I came here, Hutch Chennai had Free National SMS for 25/- per guys and gals....I shall be updating sms spam distribution list again. I donno if its free still, but y to care ...!!! 6 Months without a mobile were hell over I shall compensate....Every morning, I use to feel, if I am missing something in my attire and attitude...

Have to catch up with Lots and Lots and Lots of stuff....

It feels, its been so long since I have left....

But at the same time, I must appreciate the experience of being here...I have understood myself better..I have made new ties with new people, was exposed to whole new world full of people and their own methodologies to be alive. I must also appreciate the love, the warmth, the nearness which the bloggers have given me in here.

Song Changes, "Arre Jaane kaise Kab kanha Ikraar ho gaya, Hum sochte he reh gaye aur Pyar Ho gaya"

Bloggers hve even made me to change the style of writing and now the blog is in much better shape. Slowly and slowly its becoming the part of life.

So Folks, no more Sentiyapa ( ;) another word from my dictionary.... hey this gives me an idea of posting my dictionary, my own lingo :)

!! To pehle koi hasaye na, Rabba !!

kissi ne kabhi to mujhse kahan tha,
-Once upon a time somebody said to me.

Hirdu na khush dikha ker itna,
Nazar Lag jayegi,
- "Hirdu" - try not to look so happy, some evil eye might turn against you.

Bahut kum log jaante hai chehre ke peeche ka gum,
isliye kabhi kabhi aankhen rakha ker num,
- Very few know the SAD face hiding behind the mask, that is why I ask to keep thy eyes a bit wet.

Na Jaane kab bichhad jaye, jinko kehta hai tu apna,
Na Jaane kab toot jaye saanson se bandha ye sapna,
- You never know, when shall those whom you call yours shall depart, You never know when strings of this living dream shall break apart,

Isliye kahta hoon tujhe baar baar,
Kabhi to bahale aansoon do chaar,
-thus and only thus I call you often, to drop in a tear, here and there,

Ho jaye sukoon us khuda ko bhi phir,
ki jindagi mein paaya hai tune sirf "Sifir"
- so that the LORD himself never feel a pinch, if HE had awarded you more than ZILCH

The language of Silence

Must be wondering what the heck is this...well, its the language, I plan to expertise, when I return back to India, I shall be learning sign language...


Donno the reason, but I can tell you how and when I got this idea. yesterday i was coming to meet my friend in Burlingame CA from Santa Clara, as usual took the vta (Light rail) and then Caltrain, in Caltrain there was this young teen with his 2 young sisters and was quite enthutiast, but when I watched a little more, I found out that the guy cannot speak and hear, he was communicating to his mom and sisters by sign language and they were communicating pretty effectively and joy in there talks was quite visible.

then and there I started getting the thoughts of the guys, gals & kids, I have met before who used this lingo, and started feeling that, just coz I don't know this I have missed a whole bunch of entertaining talks with them, I have failed to look the world through there eyes just, coz I donno the language. It used to be pretty diffcult to communicate with them, so i decided that now, I shall make an attempt removing this hurdle.

I was thinking a little further about myself that across the years, I have been exposed to people of different culture, language & ideology and was appreciated for being so seamlessly able to associate with them, beyond the profession boundaries. There were tamils, telugu, malayalam, vietnamese, french, romanians, chinese, japanese, americans, europeans, swedish, ofcourse hamare Jaat bhai, haryanvi, mumbaites, delites et !! :)

so folks another more ... lets see how much I can do ?

12 valid reasons for not coming to work

This is posted at Indiatimes :)

Every weekday feels like a Monday — and you don't want to go to work! Have you run out of ideas (read alibis) to give to your boss? Don't fret, here are some new ones that can get you instant leave.

Warning: To be tried at your own risk.

1. I can't come in to work today because I'll be stalking my previous boss, who fired me for not showing up for work. OK?

2. When I got up this morning, I took two glasses of Isabgol in addition to my Prozac. I can't get off the toilet, but I feel good about it.

3. My mother-in-law has come back as one of the Undead and we must track her to her coffin to drive a stake through her heart and give her eternal peace. One day should do it.

4. I can't come to work today because the municipal corporation has determined that my house is completely surrounded by wetlands and I have to arrange for helicopter transportation.

5. If it is all the same to you I won't be coming in to work.
The voices told me to clean all the guns today.

6. I have a rare case of 48-hour projectile leprosy, but I know we have that deadline to meet....

7. I am stuck in the blood pressure machine down.

8. Yes, I seem to have contracted some attention-deficit disorder and, hey, how about Bunty and Babli, huh? So, I won't be able to, yes, could I help you? No, no, I'll be sticking with watching a DVD, but thank you for calling.

9. Constipation has made me a walking time bomb.

10. I just found out that I was switched at birth. Legally, I shouldn't come to work knowing my employee records may now contain false information.

11. The psychiatrist said it was an excellent session. He even gave me this jaw restraint so I won't bite things when I am startled.

12. The dog ate my car keys. We're going to hitchhike to the vet.

Five point someone - what not to do at IIT, a novel by Chetan Bhagat

Five point someone - what not to do at IIT, a novel by Chetan Bhagat

Ultimate... Fundoo...A 10 Pointer for this guy....Read it folks...Thy shall enjoy it.

A friend of mine bought it on his trip back to US from India. I was at his home on Saturday night and finished it overnight.

I enjoyed it, But I am surprised at the loss of my Comprehension speed. During the days I was preparing for CAT, I reached around 450 Words per minute, Now it seems dwelling around 250.

I started the novel around 11:30 PM in night and finished it at 4:00 AM in the morning.

Went out just for 2 smokes :) and was caught in the second act of smoking by the friend, whom I was telling with pride in the evening" I take only a single cig a day and that too irregularly".

Woh yaaro ab IIT and Engg days yaad aa rahe the to....aur ab to next day aa gaya hai....

For the late comers, I have achieved quit for the addiction, but even now it happnes once in a know reputation... goes before me...

Lemme see whats the average reading speed for you guys and gals. I shall Suggest read it in a single sitting for max joy.

!! Give life a Chance !!

Was reading lot of blogs and hearing lot of stuff over the long weekend. One phenomenon was common, very few people I found were ready to give life a chance. Almost all seem to have entangled so much in the WEB of aspiration, expectation, glory, hatred, loss, theoritical loss around them that I doubt if they are living the purpose of being alive....

So folks Here I request you all, take a break, run out of office , home etc. come out, respire...GIVE LIFE A CHANCE.

Thy all are the torch bearers of our species, donot let despair and sorrow overcome thy own soul. Soul is not some piece of rough paper which shall go down the dustbin or sth. Life is to be lived.

Here is the receipe of feeling content today. This is DOITTODAY list.
  1. Wake up early morning, prepare for yourself a strong meethi (double the sugar you normally take) TEA.
  2. Drink it while you browse through the Horoscope of the Day preferably the Bejan Daruwala stuff :) (Incase sbdy wanna know why bejan, I shall it in comments)
