A few things to unlearn

Since the beginning of time, that I have been able to understand things and people, and perhaps the world, I have started to think that all the good things that we were taught in school, really have no meaning. 1. Wash your hands before your meals? Almost everyone uses spoons, forks and knives. That small tip might need to be […]

Exams, Results and Dreams

Exams, well, obviously, they are not the stuff that people love. Results; even more hated. And the wait for the results can be sometimes, never ending. How long can you really wait!!! And especially, when you are just hoping that everything turns out good. But, it almost never happens. Before exams, I have had weird dreams. Really really weird… “I […]

Extracts from my Old Diary

Extracts from my Old Diary

The extracts are unedited/uncensored. Really. 31/01/2004 The month of January seems to have stagnated. The biting cold and intermittent rains have lowered down the temperatures. There’s no better place than my warm bed and the common room. Right now, I am in a dilemma. I don’t know what to do after my B.Tech degree. Of course, the first preference will […]

Let bygones be bygones

I stay in Bangalore, a thousand miles away from my home, where I spent my childhood. When my mind is blank, and I am not thinking about work or anything else, I ponder over the past.

Friends are supposed to advise when you are off the track. Friends are supposed to keep quite when you are mad. Friends are supposed to be there for you, all the time, no matter how busy […]

People lose their cool all the time. So do I. I am generally believed to be a powerhouse of patience. People believe that I have loads of it. But the fact is, I don’t have that much. 🙁 Well, yes, I do have a considerable amount it, but at some point I, too, run out of patience. I am only […]

Random post at midnight

Image courtesy: Wikimedia I was talking to a friend today. He said, “People update their blogs only when they are sad and gloomy. When they are happy, why the heck would they want to sit in-front of their computers typing out their thoughts? Rather they would hang out with friends, have a beer, watch a movie and enjoy their nice […]

The Last SMS – contd.

That wasn’t actually the Last SMS. After that day, when we met for the first time, I explained her the whole story, ummm…., not the whole, only a part of it. I didn’t tell her that I had any feelings for her. I said that it was just my friend’s mischief, and there was nothing more to it. And she […]
