What am i doing......??!?!?!

Friday, September 26, 2008

Picked up this tag again on my wanderings. I have recently gotten this penchant for tags.Probably because I am not finding anything suitable to write :-) …. Blogger's BLOCK you see ;-)

Reading:
Ancient Promises by Jaishree Misra. Sounds promising so far. Not too sure how it will turn out to be.

Finished Reading:
The Pregnant King by Devdutt Patnaik.

Listening:
To “Kaiyil Mithakkum Kanava Nee” from the movie Ratchagan. Beautiful song. Beautiful Lyrics. And sung so well by Srinivas.
Wearing:
A saffron t-shirt with white collars and my blue jeans. Friday Casuals ;-)
Watching:
Nothing currently. Will be watching ‘Mumbai Meri Jaan’ tonight…
Thinking:
Of why I am so boring and where my creativity has gone that I have resorted to picking tags from other people’s blogs…

Loving:
The life I have with all the people in it and which I am living on my own terms and choices…

Hating:
The fact that the weekend is here and that it’s going to be a whole 2 days before I can come to office and make merry…
Missing:
My parents in Palghat, My bro’ in Bangalore, My Anna who has gone to Shirdi, My best friends who are scattered around the world….

Hoping:
That this weekend would not be as boring as weekends normally are for me…

Craving:
For a hot cup of Cappuccino now guaranteed to wake me up from this drowsy state that I am writing the blog in…

ഹാപ്പി ഓണം .....

Friday, September 12, 2008



നിറപറയും നിലവിളക്കും പൂക്കളവും പൂവിളിയുമായി
ഓര്‍മ്മകള്‍കൂട് കൂടിയ മനസിന്റെ തളിര്ചില്ലയില്‍
നിറമുള്ള ഒരായിരം ഓര്‍മകളുമായി
ഒരു ഓണം കൂടി വരവായി...
ഒത്തിരി സ്നേഹത്തോടെ
ഒരായിരം ഓണാശംസകള്‍
PS: Forgive the spelling mistakes.. :-)

Common Sense.... Civic Sense.... It's a rare commodity!!!

Tuesday, September 2, 2008

Voltaire once said… “Common sense is not so common”... I have another adage that comes to mind… “Civic Sense is not so common…”…!!! And it’s so irritating to see footpaths being used as roads and roads as footpaths, people spitting all over the place, driving like dumbasses… I can go on and on…

This bus stop that I wait at in the morning for my colleague to pick me up is one that is not used frequently… not exactly abandoned but not one where buses stop… you get what I am saying right… anyways, so most days there are huge traffic jams in the morning because it’s one of the busiest roads… and traffic jams are so common in major cities in any case… so in order to avoid the jam on the road, certain brilliant minded people get this very bright idea of using the footpath into a road… like they get so thrilled at the prospect of riding a bike on the footpath that they almost race to get onto it…! And the heights of it is that they are least bothered about the people who walk on the footpath!! Yeah for once; when people use the footpath for what it is supposed to be used for, they are subjected to glares and honks and swear words from the bikers... like it’s their fathers’ wealth and the poor pedestrians are squandering it away… sorry for not-so-literal translation…

I mean I don’t understand why they should get angry because we are using the footpath for what it is meant for… everyone’s in their own hurry and everyone’s scurrying about like the Mad Hatter in Alice in Wonderland … it’s not as though we are going for a leisure walk somewhere in the gardens of Babylonia… phew! And you know what, glaring back at the monkeys that ride on the footpath does not help you in any case; you cannot see their expressions behind the “batman-mask” that they call helmets… some of them in a bid to be sweet or nice or whatever you want to call it, have these sheepish ‘I-am-so-sorry-but-am-running-late” look on their face when you glare at them that gets you more irritated... but on the flip side it provides entertainment too… because the footpath is paved with stones, some of them come loose at times and then the balancing-juggling act that is exhibited is worth watching… something that will put all the acrobats and gymnasts to shame… lol..!! The number of times that a rider has slipped, lost his balance, almost fell, in turn causing the pillion rider to uphold his balance is countless… now that’s fun!!

Anyways, I can only gripe about it here now… But one day I will take a video of this damn thing and post it in all public/social forums possible and that’s a promise!!
