A Rant and A Rave!

Friday, April 29, 2011


Sometimes you just have to let it go! And sometimes you just have to blow your top!! And sometimes you gotta stop thinking what people might think of you and just say what is on your mind!  Some people deserve it! 
Things just might be a lot simpler I tell you! This year, I have been trying consciously to control my temper a bit.. Yes! Only a bit!! And knowing me, I gotta tell you that it takes a lot of strength of mind also called PATIENCE. No more a virtue folks.. Now its a talent!!
 If I keep biting my tongue to stop myself from telling people what I really think of them, I might soon need a new tongue. And thats saying something!!

Also, I just realized that its been a while since this blog has seen a rant post. Well, its been a long time since this blog has seen a post of any kind :P (but lets not go there!!). This is a valid excuse to blog!
Lets get started with my rant!!

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………
Dear hypocrites,
Whats with the holier-than-thou attitude, some of you? What makes you think that you are treading The Right Path and the rest of us here are sitting twiddling our thumbs thinking about what next vice to adopt? And what do you have that you think sets you apart from the rest of us? You got something that the rest of us dont? Do you perhaps crap from another place maybe? Or do you have some kind of Midas touch? Do you really think that somehow you are superior to the rest of us just because you dont do things that the rest of us do? Or that you have been there, done that and now you are looking towards teaching us the rights and wrongs in life?  Seriously whats the deal!! When I look at you, I get the urge to grab something and throw it at you! And then telling you to stop being a hypocrite!! But the nearest things that I have within my reach are almost always expensive and really not worth breaking them over someone as silly as you! And this gets the most irritating when I just cant do anything but keep swearing under my breath.
Breathe in! Think of all swear words! Breathe out! Mutter all previously thought of swear words!! It helps! But only sometimes!!

Dear people who use big words in everyday usage
Do you know theres a term for people like you!! No!! Really!!
I asked Google What do you call a person that uses big words? It told me they call them sesquipedalian.
Did you know that? Does that sound like some sort of a royal title to you? It sounds like the scientific name of some kind of species of reptile to me!! I would not want to be called that! Oh yeah! Just because you know you a lot of big words do not mean that the rest of us dont know any! All it means is that we are smart enough not to use them in inappropriate situations.
Are you showing off? Or do you really have some weird reason that only you can fathom for talking like a dictionary! I mean who uses words and phrases like when push comes to shove!  Or acrimonious Or even obnoxious! And that too in everyday usage! Once in a while, when the situation is appropriate I can understand. Especially with company that understands these words. Why inflict them on us??
The first thing that goes through my head when I hear someone use words like these is Ooohh thats a BIG WORD! and then I get around to thinking what it means! And then I think if that is the correct meaning or not!! Why cant you just say theres a lot of pressure or harsh or horrible!
There! Was that not simple and effective? Easier for the rest of us too think about it! I respect the fact that you know a lot of big words and that you are knowledgeable, but seriously, stop over doing it!  
Your OSTENTATIOUS attitude is EXASPERATING sometimes!!
See I know big words too! :D

Gosh! I had forgotten how amazing this feeling is!! :-)
It sure does feel good to rant and rave and fume and rage!! I should do this more often. :P :P 

And the CUP is HOME... We won! We won! We won!! :) :) Yay!! :) :)

The MEN IN BLUE finally did it!
They have brought the CUP back home…
The CUP that has eluded us for 28 years….
The CUP that really counts!!!
They have given the greatest batsman, India and the World has ever seen the best gift that they could ever have!! A fitting tribute to the Little Master! :-)
And we were part of the generation that witnessed it!
Some of us – for the first time ever! And what a feeling it is! It’s euphoric! It’s a high that nothing else can match up to…
We are the WORLD CHAMPIONS…. :-) And this is just the beginning
DhoniR.E.S.P.E.C.T. - A million times over! For delivering a Captain’s innings and taking us all the way to the CUP, for coming through when it really mattered, and for shutting all of us up with that awesome knock!!! And also for being candid enough to say that on camera… ;-) :-P
Gen Next of the Indian Team … from here on it’s all going to be win-win!! You stepped up magnificently to the challenge and you won it for us!! :-) Kudos! Hats off! And you guys R.O.C.K.
On a side-note, do Raina and Kohli remind anyone else of Ganguly and Dravid respectively?? :P Or is it just me?? .. The passion that these two show on the field to win the game is just incredible. It’s a pleasure to watch them on the field!!

But best of all… this CUP is for the Sachin Tendulkar!! The MAN who is the face of INDIAN CRICKET and for whom this is the biggest honor the team can give!! Virat Kohli summed it up perfectly - "Sachin Tendulkar has carried Indian cricket on his shoulders for 21 years. So it was fitting that we carried him on our shoulders after this win!!”
TEAM INDIA - You did us PROUD!! You guys played fiercely and how many times over and again we say it, it still won’t be enough!! You have given this country what they were dreaming of for the past so many years… You will always be remembered for this!! For bringing the CUP home! And this is where it belongs! :-)
No more of the 1983 pictures of us lifting the CUP …
No more of us saying – “Remember back in 1983 when we won the CUP??”…
No more of us debating the decisions the team took during the tournament …
From now on 2011 is the new benchmark … !!!
And we have YOU GUYS to be thankful to for it!! :-)
Way to go Team INDIA... Proud of you!
Proud to be an INDIAN… :-) :-)
