Naach! Emotions 'a-part'

Just got over watching 'Naach' ... the movie is bogus .. another version of the age-old story 'Abhiman' (featuring Bacchan Sr. & Mother Bacchan)...and some semi-porn stuff added... But what struck me here is the potrayal of the habit that most boyz/men have(may be even girlz/women have it .. but I aint sure) - a habbit to conceal your emotions...Whether its love or sorrow - men never speak .. and then I dont know why its always that we expect men/boyz to propose to the girl first!! Leave alone expressing love.. even expressing sorrow is taboo .. and nowadays in the (so-called) civilised world even anger is not a permitted emotion to show (though in the old patriarchial societies anger was taken to be a symbol of manhood) .. so whenever you feel any emotion strongly - back out! Move out of public, escape in loneliness .. and sulk if you would. All this usually further aggravates your BP (figuratively) and deepens your feelings .. and though one might feel I am

Life mein Twist hai !! - Part III (Final)

Soon I was enjoying watching others play more than playing itself!! It was fun to watch Josyula and Dinker’s match. More fun followed when Shailesh Dhawla came to play the mixed doubles dressed as a lady aka Chachi!! He was paring with Shubham and they played Josyula and Ashita(for these two it was a warm up match :)). The match was lots of fun for all onlookers . . . I felt real appreciation for Dhawla . . .the one who dares to make fun at the expense himself for others’ enjoyment is worth being appreciated . . so I promised Dhalwa a treat after the match. . . Dhawla asked whether he should come as he was dressed and I thought that would be a great fun .. so I agreed .. As we were getting out of the campus we crossed an aged couple was taking its night walk. The lady first looked horrified and astonished seeing Dhawla who was looking like a perfect ‘Gay’! But soon she realized that it was a prank and started laughing. We went to Hirnandani – Smokin’ Joes (because Pizza Hut was

Life mein Twist hai !! - Part II

The next day started late .. we had no plans; had breakfast and then Nimish made some calls to his friends . . it turned out that we were going to R-Mall from where Nimish would leave . . R-mall trip was pretty enjoyable too .. its been a long time since I’ve surfed any market . . .neither me nor Shubham are shopping freaks, so we visit markets only for our essential needs and never indulge market surfing when we move out in Mumbai . . but Nimish is a different guy . . he not only shops but makes shopping a wonderful experience by cracking jokes at every small and big item he notices . . .Nimish finally found his shoes here and also bought some other stuff . . one of his friends from his company was also there . . then we moved to Nirmal Lifestyles and had lunch at Smokin’ Joes.. well ‘twas time to c off Nimish. . . When I returned to campus, I found the badminton court buzzing with activity and all were waiting for Mixed doubles starting. Here I must mention that Sports Meet was on s

Life mein Twist hai !!

Saw this tagline on a hoarding the other day and discovered it happening to me too ... he he .. life has been fun since Diwali break ... I have spent another weekend today roaming around Mumbai. Last weekend I was roaming around with my Bro Abhishek but more on that later .. abhi I am just back seeing off Nimish to Pune. On thursday came an offer from ashii to go to ISB . . . I thought why not? After all this might be the last B-school event for me .. I had almost decided that I would go when news came that 2 tickets were booked. .. now Ashita and Milind had plans to go on those tickets .. and since Payal had almost given up on going so I was left alone without travel plans .. all my plans melted away .. I felt as if this weekend wud b a waste , shud say I was sad for the day.. . but soon came in a call from Nimish declaring he was coming to Mumbai . . . and thus started the bonanza Me and Shubham had plans to visit Elephanta Caves since long .. . Nimish gave us the opportunity ..

On Dussera home???

Ah!! What speed.. its hardly 12 hours since my last post and 12 visits have happened … god!! This is contagious ….. Anyway… here goes my post .. read on Soon after Prerana the next weekend was Dussera and I found an excuse to go home . . Home? He he … it was less of home and more of roam… I reached Bhopal on the 11th and proceeded to Indore the very same evening, reaching Indore by night. The next day we went over to Mandu – the old capital of many rulers of central India during the medieval times. Had lots of historical site-seeing … an old abandoned mosque, Rani Roopmati’s palace, one fort and Jahaz Mahal – a palace made like a giant ship with two ponds on its two sides, completing the ship-like effect. The trip was fun .. lots of driving and good time spent with mom-dad and Abhi after a looong time. The next day we proceeded to Onkareshwar – a Mahadev temple on the Banks of Narmada. Onkareshwar is specially known because it is a point where both the Satpura and Vindhyachal ra

Well Well ..... the last post was on October 17th .. the day Prerana got over .. there's been lot after that .. in fact I havent updated this blog with news like my winning 2nd Prize in Prerana Summer Project Contest ... well lots to write .. probably will find time to do that soon .. Making this post just to give a wake up call to myself ... actually after seeing the status of the hit counter I felt guilty that so many ppl visit this blog pretty regularly (yes I do notice some IP addresses hitting at regular intervals.. though dont know who exactly these ppl r ?? after all IP addresses dont have names :)) and all I do to entertain them is NOT TO POST FOR OVER A MONTH !!! Well readers sorry for my negligence ... its my moral duty to keep posting ... and will do so now .. In fact as a memoir that NITIE life is coming to an end fast .. i neeed to put in lot
