The Idiot-Box surfaces again!!!!

I seem to be venting out my frustration on the shows on TV these past few days… but I am unable to hold it in as well because of the trash that they dish out these days in the form of news…

Zillions of news channels these days… the count increasing by the day… regional, national, local, etc etc… and what do they show??

A famous actresses’ house warming function… (Like I am bothered!!! And plus the pujari who came to do the puja has to give an interview as well… of course it’s mandatory!! What r u talking??!?!)

A mockery of a murder that took place recently…. (This one has more twists and turns and suspects than any other crime story I’ve come across in recent times… No substantial news.. The same hashed up version of parroting the old news over and again…)

Which actor is currently seeing which actress?? How and where do they meet?? (Yeah… they have to try and evade the paparazzi just to ‘by chance’ fall in front of them… feeding the rumor mills so that the show ratings/publicity can still stay alive barely….)

Which actor is participating in which reality show… who won what n which competition?? (Yup… you should see the kind of questions they ask on reality shows these days…!!! Phew!! The ways people can take home riches these days….)

Interviews on which show is the best and why… a post-mortem on the rest of the shows that are done and dusted?? (That serial was sooooo much better than the current one or the sequel to it… obviously because that had better looking saris and jewels in it… and the plots.. they were mind-blowing!!)

What happened to all the relevant news that used to be shown?? What is rationale of knowing what is happening in which celebrity’s life and whose dog is named what?? What is intention of the newsreaders when they say “Here in the next few minutes you will witness the cat-fight between 2 popular actresses from the television fraternity…blah…blah…blah…!” BAH!!!

People I know who were addicted to watching the news on television promptly at 9:00 PM or 8:30 PM or whenever it was being shown prefer to browse online for the news… or read the papers… (That’s another story all by itself)…

Is this because of lack of relevance in the information that’s shown tagged under a term called ‘advent of technology’? Oh..or maybe I am the one who’s unable to understand the trends in the bulletins and broadcasts… its probably supposed to infuse people and help them empathize/sympathize/swoon over/go green about/ other people’s lives… it’s perhaps supposed to instill them with a sense of camaraderie …. (My Foot!... eye-rolling, sarcastic, I-don’t-believe-this smiley!!)

This is not against all news channels as the readers may think… but against a few of them who in the name of information dish out humbug…!!!! (That’s the disclaimer!!)

Serial Killing....

When I was back in college doing my masters, we had a course called SAPG (Self Awareness and Personal Growth)… which basically dealt with the various ways to improve our personality and cope up with the stressful ways of the corporate world… whatever! But when we were doing that course we also had to do a presentation on something… some random topic… and my group’s chosen topic was Serial Killers… ‘coz that was the time the Noida killings were in the news and all that… anyways… the presentation went off well, was well appreciated and it was quite an entertaining topic if I say so myself…

During the past few weeks, I have been subjected to another kind of “Serial Killers”…. An assortment of teary-eyed emotionally filled serials on television which have been running for as long as I can remember…

These days in the PG once I am back from work, I plonk myself on the sofa and am a spectator to the various ways in which the mother-in-laws plot against daughters-in-laws, the kind uncles who help the unsuspecting nieces, the sisters-in-law plotting against each other… phew!! I haven’t even started on the rest of them…

As far as I can remember, the ‘K’ serials started when I was back in the 11th standard… and back then the protagonists were young, cherubic, and without-a-care-in-the-world prancing about in big cars and all that jazz… nowadays they have almost become like a walking-talking-half-an-hour advertisement for the jewels (I shall break my neck if I get another gram of gold on me!!!), intricate saris (the longer the length of the sari, the smaller the blouse!!), make up (it’ll probably take me 5 hours after the shoot to get this goo off my face but I will still put it on!!) and flashy luxuries… Now forget the ‘K’ serials… there are other killers starting with the rest of all the alphabets (as they were all feeling left behind!!) :P

It’s quite fascinating to see how the same storyline gets twisted in the various mega-serials that are being telecast…. More often than not, it’s actually the same character that’s playing similar roles in 2 different serials… saves time I say! With the amount of dialogues and body language that one has to take care of… the pout, the stare, the glare and the killer look..!! Oh btw, how can I forget the music that plays in the background when the negative character comes into camera frame!!! Funny!!

But to say the least… you know what the best part is…

Watch the serial after a gap of six - seven months… you’ll still be able to understand the story-line… it just does not MOVE… save for the entry of a few NEW characters… because by the time each scene is played-replayed-shot from various angles-and played with and without background music-etc etc… I am tired now!! The weddings take eons to get over… the ‘bidaai’ is another 2 episodes in itself, and don’t even talk about the death scenes and the ones after that!!!

Phew!! I rest my case!! This is the most effective form of killing that I have come across… slow, merciless (the emotions displayed in the serial are the ones they suck from us watching it!), painless (oh! Sometimes painful too – to watch it!), but steady…. A steady dose of addiction…that kills you slowly..!!

The new adage called SERIAL KILLING…..

Hectic weekends for the past couple of weeks…! This apart from the normal schedule of the week…

Last to last weekend was a trip to Hampi (Karnataka) and this last weekend was a trip to Chennai for a cousin’s get together … both write-ups are pending along with a couple of other things that I wanted to write about..

I am really too tired to put my thoughts together now and it’s hard to write when you are feeling so pooped!!

Will take a short breather and be back again in a couple of days..!!

Until then…

Adios!! :-)

Office Phenomenons!!!!

When you work in a corporate environment, you get to hear some common words and phrases used in meetings and in your normal conversations…

And somewhere by chance, when you talk to people outside your workplace, those phrases involuntarily find a place in your exchanges…

Like these days when I do not want to discuss something with my parents, I just say “Can we take this up later??”:P

Or when someone calls up and you are unable to talk then – “I shall get back to you!!”

Yesterday when we were in the midst of looking at the snaps of our recent trip to Hampi, my colleague asked me to put it into the share drive and I replied saying - ”Is it ok if we can consolidate it and send it to everyone at one go, instead of sharing it in bits and pieces??” (The key word here is CONSOLIDATE in case you did not get it ;-) )

When you are not in a mood to talk and when you really do not want to discuss this at all at any point of time, most commonly what we use is - “Shall we take this offline??” (the offline time of course never arrives!!)

The most common way of evading a person is - “I am in a meeting!! I shall call you up later” :-)

When you do not know the answer but still want to give a good impression to the person you are talking to - “We are still working on it. We shall look into it and get back to you ASAP.” . (ASAP here means As Slowly As Possible)

Boy!! We find so many of these in our daily lives that it’s become so normal and if we don’t hear those “phrases” we feel weird..!! :-)

Heheheeh…!! It’s quite funny when you think of it… at one point of time, I used to think of people who used to use these kinds of phrases as “showing off” or “Attitude” or something!! But now when I listen to myself using it I feel it just gets into your blood… I mean it comes quite naturally because you hear it so many times during the day….

Lol… on that note “I shall get back to you ASAP”

Blast from the past!!!!

You know what...
I was reading through my old posts and well I have just one word for it … CRASS!
The language is so pitiable… the words used are so sad… I felt really ashamed of it…
Well not really ashamed… but more or less felt a little embarrassed reading them!! Hmm..
Not that I am not proud of them but just that well.. whatever!!
Lol..! its okie I guess… I guess the style matures as and when and more you write... ;-)
I like my current style a lot better than the earlier one! :-)
Style has definitely improved!! :P ( I say so myself!!.. Since no one else does!!)

A day at office - I

Ever tried booking a meeting that your boss wanted you to..?!?!!

Chances are that you’d have exhausted all the swear words you knew…

It always goes on these same lines…
“Aishwarya, book a meeting with 6 ports for today evening at 7:00PM with US Dial in …”

(Ten minutes later; after the meeting has been booked)

“Aishu, there’s a slight change. The meeting is from 5:30PM. Make sure that it’s changed.”

(After another five minutes)

“Ma’am we need it to be 12 ports for the same meeting id. Just get it done ASAP.”

(Yet another two minutes)

“Aishwarya, The timing for today’s meeting is from 6:30 and extend it by 2 hrs please.”

By this time you are mumbling under your breath and you vaguely have a feeling of smoke coming out of your ears and your head throbbing… This is apart from the rants and ravings of the Meetings management team …

I mean you keep changing it, they are bound to snap back at you…. Right?!!!?!

And at the end of all this…

“Aishu, that meeting got cancelled. Just cancel the ports please.” (Oh this time we have a please!!!

Sometimes I wonder why I like this job so much!!! :O

Beats me!!!

Figured it out… Solved the issue…

I feel so glad..!! So relieved..!! :D

And I did it all by myself..!! :-)

Hehehehe… hehehhe…. I can’t stop smiling…

I love this..!!

:-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-)

Remember that justifying and formatting problem I spoke about in my earlier blog…

All you got to do is go to your Settings-->Formatting-->Post Template and paste the HTML code for Justifying and whatever else you want to do …

Oooooooohhhhhhhh….. Have been breaking my head over this since yesterday…

Now I can sleep peacefully….

PS: I hope this works :O


For all those men who believe there’s no reason to buy the cow when you can get the milk for free…Currently 80% of women are against marriage, too, as they have wised up to the fact that for 7 ounces of sausage it’s not worth buying the whole pig

Help me... :-(

I changed the template to layout in blogger…

I was quite impressed and proud of myself with the changes until I wanted to do a bit of writing..!!

And to my dismay found that the shortcuts for formatting are missing/not working… Shucks!!!
And suddenly I don’t like this new blog layout…

I want my old one back… and I tried to change it… Revert back to my classic template… it did change back…

But without the formatting options… :-(

Now what am I supposed to do… Tried figuring out how to get it back but…. :-( :-( :-(

Someone please help me!!!

Shucks! I am not even able to “Justify (Ctrl+J)” this…!!! …

Help me……….

The Green-Eyed Monster

The green-eyed monster seems to be raking up its head quite often in my life these days…and it brings along with it its many relatives; like gloom, wrath, hopelessness, etc ...

Very vague feeling of being deprived of something!!! And not being able to figure out what exactly it is!!!....

Hate it when I don’t get the attention I deserve especially from my loved ones…

Of course I am sensible enough to understand that it is not their fault as such… but then I am not mature enough to control the feelings… and then I behave like how small kids do… sullen, quiet, moody, forlorn, throwing tantrums (the word used for adults here
is ‘showing attitude’)…

And sometimes those unwanted tears comes out unwillingly, involuntarily, grudgingly… as much as I try to hold them back in, it trickles out ….

Is being possessive a bad thing? I do not think so… people don’t agree do they?!?!!

Being possessive translates to them as restraining, curtailing…. Being possessive translates to me as to how much that person means to me and how fond I am of them!!!

What is the big deal if you are possessive…? I am very possessive of my bunch… my family, friends, things that I own…

Why do people think that being possessive is being selfish… wrong notion … that’s not what it is..!!!

Anyways… this’ll keep going on..!!!

Just one of those days..!!

“The Travails of Single South Indian men of conservative upbringing” or “Why we don’t get any…”

Got this as a forward... and it's BRILLIANT...!! Hilarious! And keeps you in splits throughout...

God knows how many times it has been forwarded thru' the net..

The author of this "riotous" piece is Sidin Sunny Vadukut (

Enjoy..! :)


“The Travails of Single South Indian men of conservative upbringing” or “Why we don’t get any…”

Yet another action packed weekend in Mumbai, full of fun, frolic and introspection. I have learnt many things. For example having money when none of your friends have any is as good as not having any. And after spending much time in movie theatres, cafes and restaurants I have gathered many insights into the endless monotony that is the love life of south Indian men. What I have unearthed is most disheartening. Disheartening because comprehension of these truths will not change our status anytime soon. However there is also cause for joy. We never stood a chance anyway. What loads the dice against virile, gallant, well educated, good looking, sincere mallus and tams? (Kandus were once among us, but Bangalore has changed all that.)

Our futures are shot to hell as soon as our parents bestow upon us names that are anything but alluring. I cannot imagine a more foolproof way of making sure the child remains single till classified advertisements or that maternal uncle in San Francisco thinks otherwise. Name him “Parthasarathy Venkatachalapthy” and his inherent capability to combat celibacy is obliterated before he could even talk. He will grow to be known as Partha. Before he knows, his smart, seductively named northy classmates start calling him Paratha. No woman in their right minds will go anyway near poor Parthasarathy. His investment banking job doesn’t help either. His employer loves him though. He has no personal life you see. By this time the Sanjay Singhs and Bobby Khans from his class have small businesses of their own and spend 60% of their lives in discos and pubs. The remaining 40% is spent coochicooing with leather and denim clad muses in their penthouse flats on Nepean Sea Road. Business is safely in the hands of the Mallu manager. After all with a name like Blossom Babykutty he cant use his 30000 salary anywhere. Blossom gave up on society when in school they automatically enrolled him for Cookery Classes. Along with all the girls.

Yes my dear reader, nomenclature is the first nail in a coffin of neglect and hormonal pandemonium. In a kinder world they would just name the poor southern male child and throw him off the balcony. “Yes appa we have named him Goundamani…” THUD. Life would have been less kinder to him anyway.

If all the women the Upadhyays, Kumars, Pintos and, god forbid, the Sens and Roys in the world have met were distributed amongst the Arunkumars, Vadukuts and Chandramogans we would all be merry casanovas with 3 to 4 pretty things at each arm. But alas it is not to be. Of course the south Indian women have no such issues. They have names which are like sweet poetry to the ravenous northie hormone tanks. Picture this: “Welcome, and this is my family. This is my daughter Poorni (what a sweet name!!) and my son Ponnalagusamy (er.. hello..)..” Cyanide would not be fast enough for poor Samy. Nothing Samy does will help him. He can pump iron, drive fast cars and wear snazzy clothes, but against a braindead dude called Arjun Singhania he has as much chance of getting any as a Benedictine Monk in a Saharan Seminary.

Couple this with the other failures that have plagued our existence. Any attempt at spiking hair with gel fails miserably. In an hour I have a crown of greasy, smelly fibrous mush. My night ends there. However the northy just has to scream “Wakaw!!!” and you have to peel the women off him to let him breathe. In a disco while we can manage the medium hip shake with neck curls, once the Bhangra starts pumping we are as fluid as cement and gravel in a mixer. Karan Kapoor or Jatin Thapar in the low cut jeans with chaddi strap showing and see through shirt throws his elbows perfectly, the cynosure of all attention. The women love a man who digs pasta and fondue. But why do they not see the simple pleasures of curd rice and coconut chutney? When poor Senthilnathan opens his tiffin box in the office lunch room his female coworkers just dissappear when they see the tamarind rice and poppadums. The have all rematerialised around Bobby Singh who has ordered in Pizza and Garlic bread. (And they have the gall to talk of foreign origin.)

How can a man like me brought up in roomy lungis and oversized polyester shirts ever walk the walk in painted on jeans (that makes a big impression) and neon yellow rib hugging t shirts? All I can do is don my worn “comfort fit” jeans and floral shirt. Which is pretty low on the “Look at me lady” scale, just above fig leaf skirt and feather headgear a la caveman, and a mite below Khakhi Shirt over a red t shirt and baggy khakhi pants and white trainers a la Rajni in “Badsha”.
Sociologically too the tam or mallu man is severely sidelined. An average tam stud stays in a house with, on average, three grandparents, three sets of uncles and aunts, and over 10 children. Not the ideal atmosphere for some intimacy and some full throated “WHOSE YOUR DADDY!!!” at the 3 in the morning. The mallu guy of course is almost always in the gulf working alone on some onshore oil rig in the desert. Rheumatic elbows me thinks.

Alas dear friends we are not just meant to set the nights on fire. We are just not built to be “The Ladies Man”. The black man has hip hop, the white man has rock, the southie guy only has idlis and tomato rasam or an NRI account in South Indian Bank Ernakulam Branch. Alas as our destiny was determined in one fell swoop by our nomenclature, so will our future be. A nice arranged little love story. But the agony of course does not end there. On the first night, as the stud sits on his bed finally within touching distance and whispers his sweet desires into her delectable ear, she blushes, turns around and whispers back “But amma has said only on second saturdays…”

In one last effort here we attractive young men have taken on alter egos which may interest some of you women:
1. Gautam Kumar Raja, will now be known as Joshua Perreira

2. Sidin Sunny Vadukut, henceforth will be known as Dev Chopra

3. Ashwath Venkataraman is now Vijay Desai

4. Sudarshan Ramakrishnan no more, from now he is Barath Sharma

5. Gautam Chandrasekharan will now respond to Alyque Shah

Do mail me any time for a meeting with one of the above. One week notice if Italian or Chinese food is involved, or if the individual is expected to dance.

Take that knife outta my back and stab someone else!

You know what I hate… people who snipe behind your back… the gutless spineless cowards who say one thing to you and another thing behind your back… the ones who don’t have the courage or the nerve to tell you what’s on their mind onto your face and then go on and say something totally twisted to someone else figuring that their image is good in the other person’s eyes… how cheap! Hypocrites all of them…

Was betrayed by someone I thought was a good friend… this happened sometime back and I was so put off by it that I did not have any interest in writing it. Now that “good friend” is coming to Hyderabad for the weekend… and I sincerely thank god with all my heart that I am not here this weekend otherwise I am sure that I would have to meet up with him and then god forbid! I might just say something that I am sure will be something I don’t have any control over! But I sure as hell would not regret it…

The incident or the thing he did might be a minor thing to someone who heard about it… but it really hurts when your trust is broken by someone whom you thought highly of and that someone whom you were close to at one point of time… said (messaged) something to him asking him to keep it confidential … something about someone.. And that B$#%#^& forwarded it right to that someone about how I sent him that message… what a turncoat!!! I was disgusted by the way he acted… and to think I always thought of him to be sensible, mature and what not… held him in the highest esteem and he let me down like a hot potato!!!

Anyways, all’s well that ends well… they are good friends now…

“Like calls to like… deep calls to deep...!”…

I hope they have a good time bitching, sniping, sneering and making “good judgments” about everyone else..!!

I wish them luck! And I hope they read this! :-)
It would be fun to see the expressions on their faces when they realize its them that i am talking about!!!

The perfect date....

Had this discussion with my friend yesterday about what a perfect date should be like.… :-)

Interesting topic of debate right!!

Of course it varies from people to people… but for those who have been fed on a constant diet of M&B’s, Danielle Steele, and whole lot of other romantic authors, it always mostly has these few must-haves in them…

A black gown which the lady will be wearing, the guy in a tuxedo, he draws to her doorstep in a limousine, with a bunch of flowers (red roses, white lilies, whatever!), and of course a box of expensive chocolates (Belgian if possible!),… he rings the doorbell… the girl comes down a long stairway, her gown billowing behind her… she looks breath-taking!... he hands over the flowers and chocolates, and whispers to her how good she is looking..., she blushes, he smiles… he takes her by her hand, leads her to the limo and seats her… taps the glass in between them and the driver and nods perceptibly… (It’s all pre-planned, you see ;-) )…. They drive to a great restaurant that has a good food, good music and great service… the maitre d’ meets them at the door, guides them to their table and discreetly leaves them there… the table is beautifully set with candles and flowers.. there’s soft music playing in the background and the man shows his lady to the chair… no sooner than they have been seated, he motions the head waiter and asks him to serve the wine… it’s sparkling champagne… the lady is floored.. she takes a sip of the sparkling drink, when the guy asks her to dance… they musicians start playing a soft romantic ballad and the man with the lady in his arms, start swaying to the music, all the while whispering sweet-nothings into her ear… now the proposal part can come in at two different scenes.. she can either find the ring in her champagne and then start looking amazed - surprised – stunned like she never expected it in her wildest dreams … or he can in the middle of the dance go down on one knee and bring out the ring with a flourish… :-)… and then once the lady has said yes and the entire restaurant has clapped and the weak-hearted ladies have shed a few tears of joy..(Bravo! Bravo!)… The evening ends with a walk on the beach or snuggling into each others’ arms or just going home for coffee… yes... I am sure those who have been brought up on staple romantic books will know what that meant…

Well no sooner than I had said this, my friend’s eyes glazed over and she had a look on her face reminiscent of the one I have when I see a dark chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream and chocolate syrup… then I started on what’s below!!!

Now imagine on the flip side what all can go wrong here… the chic lady can trip on her long gown and fall down the stairs following which the guy has to take her to the hospital, she might be allergic to that particular brand of chocolates or those set of flowers or worse still the guy’s perfume, the limo has had a flat tire, or the restaurant has not taken their reservation… hehehee… I can just imagine! Lol... such a lot of things that can go wrong... Hmmm… The opportunities are endless… bizarre but interesting all the same!

She got annoyed man..!!... and so annoyed that she said I have no feelings or emotional sensitivity to speak of… but why in God’s name did she get offended I don’t understand…!!?!?!!

No one has a sense of humor these days… :P

Blogs.... Anonymous or Otherwise...

There was this show on TV couple of days back about blogging. On NDTV if I am not mistaken. The topic of discussion was whether ‘Blogs should be regulated or not”. And one of the main concerns on why it should be was that it helps anonymity of the user… I can have a blog under a misleading name and thanks to the net which is quite the haven for the person who is not willing to disclose what or who he/she is, they are totally at their ease.

I guess for some, blogs are a way for expressing their innermost feelings and yet the need to remain unidentified. There can be a zillion reasons for the same. I have felt the need a lot many times myself… especially when you want to say something but are unable to thinking of the consequences… times when you want to vent out about someone/something and are forced to write it in a third person view, figuring people might jeer/poke fun at you or worse still take you to task for writing like that…

There are lots of times when I have held back thinking about the repercussions of whatever I have written, times I have deleted certain posts thanks to the remarks from people who have read them… sometimes it sure does help to maintain a blog anonymously… at least then you are free to write whatever you want… however you want…

Some people have the opinion that you can/should go ahead and write whatever you feel like without mincing words about whomever you like… It’s hard! It’s really bloody hard!! So easy to say… if I start writing about people like I know them even the one’s close to me then it will be bloodshed here if they ever happen to read it… jeez..! I am currently not willing to take that risk… it would mean losing too much right! ;-)

For me my blog even after all the restrictions and constraints is my expression and the way I see life… of course I can’t put into words right now whatever I go through in my life but one day I will..! And hopefully that day ain’t far away! :-)

Pura Vida!

It's a JUNGLE out there!!!

Suddenly they seem to be never ending…

And these woes are not just specific work woes or anything… it’s related to people and their attitudes…

How does one tell someone that you have had enough of listening to them brag about what they did in school and how they came first in all classes right from school life till graduation….

How does one tell someone that you are not really interested in knowing about their family history….

How does one tell someone that no matter what opinion he has on someone/something, it differs from yours and that you are not actually keen on justifying to him that you are entitled to your opinion….

Childish man… people are actually silly… Fine you go on and on about something over and again in front of the same crowd irrespective of whether you have said it before to the same set of people… Dude… There’s a limit yaar… seriously… think about it… What difference is it going to make to my life how you fooled a specific person or made them accept your opinion or what you did in a particular situation… Of course I am interested to know how you handled it ONCE; not to a tune of FIVE times… This kind normally starts their topic with “When I was in the …..” statement… it actually is a monologue, not a dialogue ….

And then there’s this other kind… who actually call you for each and every aspect of the work that they are doing… validate, re-validate, change the font, change the color, validate again, proof-read it some 10 times, check grammar, check spelling, gosh! And all this for a simple three line mail… Jeez…!!! It does not matter whether you have any work to do… this kind normally starts with a “What are you doing?” question ….

Have you come across this special set that is thrust into the family way and then whatever they do, say, act, behave, depends on their better half… but this is a very miniscule part of the entire crowd and they are actually better to be with than the afore-mentioned ones… But no one is actually interested in knowing how your spouse treated you when you were sick, how they behaved with you when office pressure got to them etc…. Whew!

There’s another type that I have noticed… the idealistic ones… how everything in their life has to be perfect and utopian… and how they have their own principles and rules etc… well... this type also spew out philosophy once in a while and they talk of stuff as to how to behave ideally in a situation and what is to be done… huh.. Please huh..!!! There’s no such thing as an ideal way to handle a situation as far as I know… jeez…! The ideas that people come up with… and sometimes in life it pays to be selfish, pitiless, self-important, egoistic, and competitive… not everything in life is so rosy… and if you have it you flaunt it…!!

I am done!!!

I can’t write more… I mean I think I will lose it if I start thinking of more kinds of people… there are a lot of breeds of creatures around and well… it’s a catch 22 situation… a classic “what-will-people-think-of-this-thing-I-‘ve-come-out-with”????!!!

Anyways… Am done…!

And I again repeat… no offence meant to anyone… I am just venting out my frustration…!!!

Sometimes it just gets to you…..

The Mad Cow Disease....

It’s one of those days…

Irritating. Disgusting. Frustrating. Grating. Nauseating. Exasperating. Morbid. Moody.

I can go on and on and on…

Is this what they call by “Monday Blues” …!!?!?!? Monday Morning Blues are extending to the whole day….

Hell man… this is so damn maddening!

Everything everyone does is irritating me… and I dunno the reason for it… every single topic of discussion makes me feel like "what-the-fish-am-i-doing-here-listening-to-this-dumb-stuff???"

Debate on how elections in Andhra will do to the economy… (Yeah right! How does it matter to me??)

Who stays where and how long is that route compared to this one!!! (Oh this is GK... I should be interested in this… Yawn!!)

Which all Indian products are patented and which are not..!!! (This is topic for lunch ladies and gentlemen… for e.g.: yoga is patented by USA, and turmeric by someone else!!!... Huh…!)

How the movie “Bujjigaadu” (what a name!!) has Tamil dialogues which the hero speaks well but still we-the-goltis have a problem with it!!!! (I really don’t understand what they have against the other South Indian languages!!!)

The voices in my head tell me I am perfectly rational and of sound mind. But then the voices in my head are biased… for sure!!...

I just want this day to end…

I just want to go home and do nothing… but somehow even that seems like a bleak option…

All through weekend I was waiting for Monday to come so that I could come to office…. And now I feel like why the weekend couldn’t have been extended to another couple of days…

GOD please let this day get over…!!!
