The other half..

No.. This post is not about "My" girl.

This post is about my frustration of being the one and the only son to my parents :(.
I always wanted to have a sister. The fact that all the guys around me have sisters doesn't help my cause.

new year...

Absolutely zilch resolutions from my side...

what am I looking forward ?? :P

1) A crowd in Football ground frantically trying to jog
2) A crowd in Gym trying to lose the extra flab
3) People who would try to become Teetotalers

Let me wish them success.

P.s. If you want to quit, quit it on dec 31st... Just dont wait for Jan 1st...

The Unfair sex

"I had won at the genetic lottery that had determined my sex" - The Kite Runner.

In India its a different story altogether especially if you study in an elite engineering or Management college.

if you haven't heard terms C.A and L.T (common jargons in a B school), then its time for you to hear them.

C.A - Ch**h Allowance
L.T - Lu**d Tax

I know a respectable database company which recruited a girl because she looked good (infact the HR who recruited her tried to hit on her as soon as she joined)...

I just got a weird thought in my mind ...

I like and respect few people in my senior batch and I was wondering whether I moving/calling/interacting them will be perceived as "sucking up"...

May be I should stop here for a time being.. until I get placed.

I miss something.. May be If I continue to miss it, I can post something on that...
I dread the fact that I lost "it".

early morning at Jampot

(For a change this post will resemble a mail to my close friend)

Time: 5.00 A.M
just didn't feel like sleeping.
working on a case now. seems like a crackable one.

yeah thats it..

the mail ends now :P ... ( so many changes in life and I don't feel like telling
anyone about them !!!! ... )

song which I m listening now : "aathangara" by A.R. Rahman

P.S: I am thinking about “that” (at this moment) and I realise that it was my fault :). But what the heck!! I need not apologize for anything in my life :P

Au Revior ...

Barcelona ..

The news that Kaadu will be doing his MBA at Oxford brings me so much happiness that I forgot what I want to blog :)
Anyways the news puts us back in the track .. the track where Men do great things.. they were destined to do and no one can change "that" destiny.
For the first time in this euro trip, I found that I didn't have enough money to buy what I wanted to buy for my friend(nee thaanda ...The anon guy ).
Foot Ball club Barcelona - The official shop sold everything in a premium and I managed one teddy bear with FCB logo for him...
I need to earn and earn a lot ..
Met an interesting Norwegian guy who backpacks Europe by carrying his own tent and stove. He ripped apart my beliefs and I got to go back and check my premises.
In 30 minutes, he bought me three cups of coffee and told his life story.
Atleast I know what I do not want in life..

Gaudi , Las ramblas, Barcelonata, avant garde musicians and above all LIFE -- thats Barcelona in short.

Paris, Lyon, Venice, Milan, Florence, Munich, Vienna, Barcelona, Stockholm, Helsinki, Berlin and above all Amsterdam... This backpacker has seen it all...

The party is over and home beckons.... I do feel sad
I want to come back to Europe for I don't have anything back home. I "feel" that..

who is she ?

She is a hot girl whom the whole college leched(including the backpacker ).
People said that she has become more beautiful in recent days.
I went to meet a guy whom I like and she was there as well.
Now for the entire day I was with her and I didn't lech her :) .. ( this should be hard to believe.. trust me guys.. even for me its hard to believe.. )

No.. Not an acquaintance.
No.. but Not a close friend.
yes.. just one more fan of her :P..

I was trying hard to sell my chettan and this is how it went ..

She: Is he a mallu ?
Me: yes he is
Is he single ?
yes he is.
Does he want to get married in one year from now ?
yes he wants to get married.
Is he a Christian ?
No he is not..
still its ok.. either of us can convert..
but there is a problem..
he doesn't drink..
its ok.. I ll drink for him as well :) ( at this point, the whole group was ROTFL )

well, then I started selling him..

He s a great basketball player, an IITian, amazing attitude , Mr. Nice guy etc..
but then there is one problem.
what is it ?
he s looking for an intelligent girl :D

Game, Set, Match - Backpacker... Muhahaha....

p.s. we miss you girl. There is no one to match your looks and attitude in college.. Any takers for this opinion ? :P

Past.. Present

Dec 7th 2006

How can they complete the dissert in one day ? How can the college allow that ?

Dec 7th 2007

I am trying to complete my dissert. Oh yes ! I started just now and will try to complete in next 6 hours :)

Do I feel sad for it ? I do. Because I wanted to do some good work. I did. I tried inferring new things. But then ....... sigh !

Lech ..Lecher.. Lechest.. :)

Damn hot girls ...

the chinese girl whom I met in Bus
the italian girl from Turin
the Belgian girl in Supply chain course
the african girl in Milan Metro
the ENS girl who plays basketball

and ofcourse every French girl is hot.

One stupid stereotype I had was that Indian girls are the prettiest...

But as I said all stupid things must come to an end :)

Will I ever get leching opportunity like this ? Sigh.........

p.s. The Belgian girl is "extra" hot :)... Hmmm...

Romance - Part 1

Girls are dumb. They can't speak about this topic.

Backpacker, what is your view on this topic ?

No Ma'am, I wont speak until she speaks.

I looked into her eyes as I said the above sentence.

Da, you just killed me by defending me.

I know that… Can’t you see the crush in my eyes?

She did see… after 10 years…

I will speak about this topic...

She looked at me and her eyes said that she will speak for me and not for the entire class….

I know that …

Thus started his Standard 8th crush.

pesky and petulant

For the past one week, I have troubled Farhan and Chettan so much that I feel guilty right now :P

But they don't have a choice :P.
Do they ?

The worst thing that happened to me in France: "Staying with chettan" :P
I didn't change. I was never forced to change.
But I hope I learnt my lessons just by living with great men.
Some people are so special and they make the world a special place to live.

you guys are one reason why I haven't turned cynical inspite of *********** (censored for readers). Period.

Oral Herpes with staphylococci superimposed - That was the diagnosis..

For the first time in my life anti-viral acyclovir was prescribed..

and advices include
1) abstain from sex :P ( as if I make out every women in France)
2) Separate vessels.

Pain, loneliness, a tough Finance exam in two days where I have a bright chance of Flunking, Hallucinations at 102 Degree fever -- Life is beautiful

P.S. The only thing that makes me smile is Farhan's and Chettan's sarcasm and questions like " Since you are not a religious person, Do you want us to bury your body or burn it after your death ?"

" How did you contract oral herpes? did you put wrong thing at wrong place ?". :P

yes minister ....

He plays vote bank politics.
He created a huge controversy over a non-issue.
He singlehandedly tried to destroy AIIMS.
but then He took the war to tobacco companies.

yes, the fact that I would love to sell cigarettes is no way related to the fact that I hate millions of children thinking that smoking is the coolest thing to do.

Smoking is for losers and I have seen so many good men lose their stamina due to it..

I hate good men turning into vegetables. Period.

men and boys

depressed and sick..

physical pain.. The ultimate test for the MAN.
or does every man have his own threshold level for physical pain ?
I don't think I have passed the test yet.

I am a 26 year old "boy" and not a "man" yet :(...

miss this kiss..

For the past two weeks, either I never saw a couple kissing each other or I had become oblivious to it :P

I wondered whether such miracles were possible in France where every moment you see guys and girls kissing each other.

Needless to say that I started missing it.

This is France, the most romantic country in the world and I couldn't believe that people have stopped kissing each other suddenly.

But at the top of Eiffel tower my prayers were answered.

The Seine or the lights of Paris were not as beautiful as the romance at the top of Eiffel tower and my CREATIVE ZEN Mp3 player was playing MLTR - Someday.....

good man..

A soul stirring post written on CM by JK.

dey Jk machi, you are a good man( copied from Anbe sivam).

From Nachalai to Udit narayan

I knew that it had to happen. It happened.
Its almost two months since I spoke with someone in Tamil and effects are already visible.
Yesterday I was listening to a Tamil song and I couldn't infer what "Punal" meant. I knew that it might be "river" but still I wasn't sure.

Five years ago, I would have hung my head in shame.
Not any more. Things have changed and will continue to change. I just acknowledge it and move on.

My interest in Tamil literature has gradually declined and I have lost all my interest in songs/movies/literature.

Nachalai: Tamil poetess who married King Cheralathan in the Sangam period. She was my dream girl once upon a time :P

Udit Narayan: The singer who kills Tamil songs :P

dumb dumber dumbest...

Two good souls back home included my name in their B-school competition team.

why ?

No. Not because I am intelligent. Because I am a friend and they know that I need an elusive point in my CV to get a shortlist.

and what did I do ?

I didn't inform them that I was part of another team.

As I often say these days - At the age of 17 I wouldn't have made these mistakes.. But at the age of 26 I make a lot of them..

around me..

The supply chain class is going on..
Ofcourse not in English ... in a language that sounds like Greek and Latin to me .. alrite, it sounds like French :P

I look at people around me right now.

IIMC guy : " Will I get a consult and an international location ?"

IIMB guy : " How the f*ck did I miss the I-bank PPO ?"

IIMI guy : " will I pass in European business system ?"

Belgian : " I am happy as long as I can chat with my girl friend."

Brazilian : " Will I get a chance tonight :P?(rest censored)"

XLRI guy : " How can I blog about this? "

XLRI gal : well .. she bunked the class :P.. the most intelligent one..muhaha

Amsterdam strip tease club and crowded streets of Matunga

Madurai meenakshi amman temple and atheism

Ilayaraja and Stairway to Heaven

Mtech and MBa

Finance and Marketing

Extremely volatile at slightest provocations and highly stable at tough situations

The feeling of belonging and loneliness

Warm heart and a cold stare

Bright yellow leaves and dark brown barks

Good Will Hunting and Thoovanathumbigal

Wet-nights and teetotaler

Sex and virginity

Know them and then you know me…..

How do you feel when a 30 year old guy who has arthritis, and affected by tuberculosis beats you hands down in Badminton by making you run all around the court and finally tells you straight at the face: " you are 22 in your mind, 26 in reality, and 30+ years old physically" ?

well, you die. Period.

Have your ever killed a chicken in your bare hands just to take revenge on it?
Have your killed a kitten in your bare hands because it killed your pet pigeon?
I didn't. But I know the guy who did.

After a long time, I see a "been there- seen that-did that- I feel like god" man...

cutting onions...

I have tried/experienced all of the following things.

1) Running five Kms at a stretch. ( Will try for ten very soon)

2) Fifty Kgs of Bench press ( that includes the rod as well.. he he)

3) "Adam"-teased ?? by five beautiful French women. (No, not because I look Handsome. Infact yours truly is one of the mirror cracking materials in this planet. That was because I leched at them and I was alone).

4) Getting screwed in summers/grades.

and then if you still think that I am one of "been there , seen them" types, Please forget that..

For I have never "cut onions " in my life.

Believe me, Thats one of the most painful jobs I have ever done..

This blog is dedicated to all those guys who "cut onions" in life.. :P

p.s. ( Actually I got the title of the blog when I was cutting onions for my dinner :P.. and I just need a crap post to substantiate the title... so here we go :P)
