Why me?Why me?Why me?

I dont believe what happened today.Highly atypical San behaviour.I mean I could mark this day as a watershed in my life...

Ask anyone who knows me.Ask them whether I am a honest person.Ask them bluntly.I expect an answer to the tune of "No he is a conniving,decieving cheating bastard!".And thats from my better friends.And I dont mind that.Its all in the name of fun and I dont anything illegal.Almost nothing that is...

It all happened in Physics class.As the prof brought in the papers ,all the students waited with bated breath for the papers to be distributed.And in the customary practice of any prof he continued to take class as if nothing had happened.As the hour neared its end, he gave the papers and I had to wait a agonsing 50 or so names before my paper came.And I wasnt expecting anything grand.Maybe a 15/20?Anything more would be a delight.And guess what...I got a 20...

So whats this dumbfuck trying to do?He first starts some shit about honesty and …
Whoosh...Another weekend goes by...

Does anybody else feel that time is accelerating faster than normal?Seriously.I saw the date today and thats when I realised we were nearing the end of September.I cant remember most of September.
(gruesome random recollections of quizzes flow through the mind)
Nooooooooooooo........
(calms down)
Apart from those painful obligations, I seem to have done nothing useful in September.Or perhaps I should read my blog to find out....

Sunday, yesterday , was a peaceful day.The morning was spent blissfully playing quake in the DCF after the Prof conveniently changed submission timings.Choreo was fun and the 4th years put on a great show.(NOTE TO SELF: Next year Narmad B will be bigger and better...)

I actually stayed up till 4 to see the Village which was a good movie and all.However lacked the last minute suspense of a Shyamalan movie.Not a bad movie da.I guess I expected more though.

Most of today has been spent in doing some arbit assignment(@$#@#!!@!#).M…
Tell me, did the wind sweep you of your feet?

Sometimes some songs grow on you while there are others which you love from the very first time you hear time.Drops of Jupiter - Train is an example of the latter.Though I have heard the song before I must thank Goda for the mp3.:D.

Why did I start on a totally random piece of information? Well if you actually have read my blog so far it was in fact been a collection os such random pieces of information albeit insipid and mentally (and physically) distressing to read at times.Which isnt very bad.Rather than writing long ell prepared essays on some topic as if this is some bloody essay writing comptt I guess this is much better.When I sometimes go back to read my old posts its totally different.However Analysis of Anonymous blogging is a topic Im neither a paragon of nor Im interested in sharing views on.

On a happier(!?!) note, I tried my hand at monoacting today with expected distastrous results.But then Its better to have tried than to …
Out of all the people in the world

In your life you meet very interesting people.Thats a fact.Hardly debatable.Almost everyone in this world is interesting in his or her own way.As the cliche goes 'One mans meat is another mans poison.'

What is the purpose of meeting new people?Is it for ones own egotistical ideas that more the people we know the more the popular we are?Maybe.Is it for achieving our own selfish means since more contacts means more strings to pull and hence work is done faster?Maybe.Or is it just that we meet new people as a part of life and not because we go out of our way to do so?Perhaps.But it remains a fact that any person meets more and more interesting people as life moves on .And hell Ive had my share...though going into those details will require some Years of blogging...

For all those people out there who want to know how to maintain a homepage (like me :P) and want someones example or just are jobless and hence land up in my site searching for enterta…
Where does the time go?

Nowadays I wonder.There seems to be no time at all.Always doing something albeit debatably useful.However I also happen to have work.And so much of it.Which is quite inexplicable.Becoz I tried to shun work as much as possible.(One possible explanation is that all the work finally accummulated into this giant titanic of a workload.But hey theres no more fun in doing things punctually)

My jobless nature has also lead to an explosion of sorts in my orkut friends list.Though most of the thanks must go to Narmad junta who seem to be everywhere on Orkut.Also I have discovered the existence of new hostelmates through this process as well as realised the real names of many.(Nithyanand was a shocker ;) ).

Saw Schindlers List yesterday.Excellent movie.I think I shall see Road to Perdition now.Also saw a short clip (~ 1 hr) on Nostradamus.To believe or not to believe...

(stretches out his hands in an almost dramatic style.Thinks for a bit)

As I said no time anymore...

What…
At the stroke of midnight

What really does happen when the clock strikes 12 am?Or as those in the army put it 0-hundred hours.A brief insight into this question follows.

For the junta who get up real early to clean the room(!), have bath(!!) and perform other such blasphemous activites, 12 o'clock they have but seen while at lunch.Otherwise its just another hour they sleep away in perfect bliss.When I was in school I never used to sleep late.Not much of an early riser too.But the latest I had been up was 12:15 while doing a record which was due 2 weeks later.I was hajjr punctual ; the key word of the sentence being 'was'.Moving on....

For the junta who have a quiz the next day, 12 o'clock symbolises that time when there is no longer 1 more day left for the quiz.Its time .(here quiz~exam).Its that time when understanding and reason give way to pure information storing , hopefully well enough to reproduce it the next day.But then there are some subjects this strategy can…
Hakuna Matata

What a wonderful phrase
Hakuna Matata
Its no passing phase
It means no worries
for the rest of your days

Hakuna Matata

I just love this song; its also from the Lion King.What a wonderful phrase-- Hakuna Matata.


Anyways moving on, I forgot to post a "first" for me.Its not some hifunda event;but then it is a first for me.Before anyone reaches any unneccessary and/or creatively masterful ideas, I shall reveal the event.I was watching this movie, Catwoman (st. Halle Berry;not so bad actually).Some 12ish at night.I think its almost the end of the movie(dont remember exactly) but I crashed while watching it."So what the fuck?Is this his "first" which he HAD to blog?Wasting my time with this dumbfuck...".Indeed.I agree.Whole-heartedly.But the actual reason I HAD to blog this is that when the same thing happened to a fellow IITian last year I told him something to the tune of ,"How can you crash while seeing a f…
Some of the most painful things in this world

Sometimes when youre in a precarious situation and you are pained, you think to yourself "That must be one of the most painful things ever...".It can be any day-to-day event but yet under circumstances it could be painful.

Let me explain.

Take for instance this one time last year I was cutting class.A normal bunk.I think it was to see the starting of a cricket match (last year India was actually playing good cricket.This year they just seem to be playing to improve the selfconfidence of their opponents.)So anyways, I slipped out of the classroom stealthily as I have done many times before to make sure I dont meet the prof walking to the class.No problems there.Then I get on my cycle and cycle leisurely back to hostel.Just before I come into the hostel guess what happened? The prof who was driving her scooty to class notices me and I notice that she has noticed me.I almost fell out of my cycle. Painmax situation.

Some days back I w…
I just can't wait to be King

Apart from that being one of my fav songs(from the Lion King), it is one of those ideas which i occassionally think about when I am bored by choice(when I choose to be bored ).What would be like to be a King?To rule over junta.Would you be like Britain and be a democracy as well hence surrendering most rights and be ceremonial alone or would you be like the King of Swaziland who, well, does whatever he likes.

A British royal in my books leads one of the most peaceful lifes especially those less known dukes and earls who baiscally have hajjar money and zero work.Atleast the Queen and the present Princes have to show their head here and there and maintain an image.That isnt the case for the lesser blue blooded souls.God knows what they do.

However take the Megalomaniac of a king who is the king of Swaziland.Ruling with an iron fist.Marrying a bakers dozen wives (which is sure to increase;after all his father had ~70).He basically does whatever his mind wa…
Whats the fun if you cant blog it?

The second post of today .But why?I pray ask you why?Why a second post?Whats the occasion?Is it because your wing won interwing footer?No.Is it because you are awake at 3:40 in the morning with nothing else to do but blog?No.Is it because of something else?No...

The truth is I just wanted to write a blog for the sake of writing.Is that so wrong?Should every post have content and emotions and crap and shit ?Cannot a blog be but arbit sentences? Random words? Pointless sentences?Even maybe some unneccessary punctuations here and here?",}.

I fight for a new future.A future unbridled by the society's demand of a blog.A future open to all and one for the betterment of mankind.A society in which every man's dream is a blog unrivalled. A collection of his efforts in virtual space .Unlimitted in capacity and boundless in its content.

Basically whatever he wants to do.

That said, I better start sleeping.

When it can rain frogs

One of the most "interesting " movies I have watched is the movie Magnolia, which apart from other things , is famous for this 15 minute frog rain at the very end of the film.Nothing supernatural in its presence.It was supposedly one of those highly improbable yet probable events.Which was what the whole story was about.

The reason I talked about this is today was another such event.Nothing earthshattering.Though one of those which makes you feel all warm inside.The team which beat us in interwing footer,1C beat ostensibly the titans of Narmad 6A.Doesnt that make you feel so happy?It should.

On another note, Narmad's webpage is up thanks to our illustrious AAS Bhindi.The link is

Narmada rocks

Includes pics of Narmad as well as its stud "inmates".

On yet another note, I was able to see the end of 28 days which I was unable to see Friday night coz Balls switched off his comp at 1:30 when there was 20 minute to go.However the download speeds t…
Lull before the storm

Basically having realised that its high time I start studying doesnt seem to deter me from coming on to the net and especially doesnt stop me seeing movies at ~1 in the night.(!?!).Anyways I shall go home today and that might help.

When I feel bored one of the things I do is to google my own name.That isnt a very elitist is it?I guess it somehow is...anyways thats something I found I was doing and something I found very strange.

One of the things I find in common with many of my friends is our taste in music.Being musically handicapped and all, I sure as hell cannot hold a tune let alone sing.Though attempts galore.Bands like Eagles,Dire Straits,Nirvana,etc rock!Not to forget Simon and Garfunkel.The funda about awesome bands is that you somehow like all their songs when you hear it whether youve heard it already or not.Thats how it is...

That said, I should stop slaughtering Beatles' lyrics.Dedication .....(take a bow da)

Some IIT events now.LitSoc Scrabble we…
The Art of Learning

There is so much to learn in this world.Take for example, learning patience.How to be patient rather.That is one skill we should learn.Another example is learning many universal truths of life like Life's a Bitch and the Higher you go ,the Harder you fall.

So what the fuck am I talkin about?

Maybe I am tryin to say that I sometimes feel I dont live up to my own expectations .Or maybe my expecations dont live up to my expectations.Ah, screw it;isnt this.

Maybe on a subconcious level i am tryin to tell myself that I need to freak out more.Or is it less?As the boundary between night and day diminishes faster than the difference in weights in a Muli Layer Feed Forward Neural Network with Backward Phase (uhhum,ANN fundaes), I hardly had breakfast this week.(Only monday did I grub).I seriously have to put fight to get up earlier than 5 to 8.Doesnt help that I blog at this time though...

All shit apart, I think I know what I am trying to imply.Basically quizzes start n…
Time's up!

You can fool some people some of the time but not all the people all of the time and certainly not me when Im in my prime!

Shamant and Bofi, it was a good plan da.I mean the fundaes and the ideas involved coupled with the coincidence of the name not to mention the gazillion lies(all good fart may I add) were excellent.Everything was perfect.Everything except for the victim.You chose the worng guy da.And to think you were smart.

The first day you told me this plan, two things struck me odd
1)Bofi is a good friend and all and this idea wasnt well too "friendly".
2)The second thing was well luck.Being in the "google" generation that I am, the first thing I did when I heard the name(probably not the first) was to google it.(how did you think I found the blog?) Surprise Surprise...two little dumbfucks trying to screw me,so I decided let things be.It was more fun this way.I got both the satisfaction of paining Bofi anf the satisfaction of knowing I was smar…
