Anbe sivam and george orwell...

Satire is the binding theme..
except for one crucial mistake which KamalHasan makes, Anbe sivam is one of the brilliant movies made in Indian cinema.
He tells madhavan that Communism is a feeling that can't be wiped out though soviet union had disintegrated..
I m sure the whole movie was based on democratic socialism (which was espoused by Orwell as well) and there was no need for Kamal to introduce that dialouge glorifying communism...

eternal sunshine - Half movie review

just started watching the movie "Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind" and the only word that comes to my mind is "Brilliant"..

but to my horror i just find ............ ( let it remain an incomplete post - see the label for the post :P )

Ego Massage

"Hows the paper?" The proff asked me..

He s known for his terror in quantitative subjects and his papers are tough nuts to crack..

"Irritating, sir" I was about to reply..

Thought for a moment ,"Tough Paper sir !" ..

He smiled.. I can see that he was addicted to hearing those words... Ego massage works..

There was a problem where I was supposed to work on 11*11 Matrix for 11 iterations.. I thought for a moment - realized that managers are not supposed to do those mechanical work and left the problem without solving it..

still the element of seeing the world in Black and white remains with me ... why the F*ck should I attempt a question just because it increases my grade ? (especially in a subject which I like and where I would love to see challenging questions..) ..I wasn't sure whether I should be scared about this quality of mine or whether I should be proud about it.. I know I have lost "her" due to this..

Thus ends this post ..( I honestly didn't know how to end this post :P )


Surprised that ...

  1. Few Men(few ?) still prefer women to be Home Makers
  2. Women let men know that they don't wear Tee-Jeans
  3. Women let men know that they haven't been on a Date
  4. Software engineers do not prefer software engineers ( I can see this trend)
I shrug it off as each one has his or her own idiosyncrasy :)

Anyways, Here is a toast to a friend of mine who ll be getting engaged on Feb 10th..

The jungle Boy..

what do you do when you have your closessssst pal( the Jungle boy) on earth visiting you for a day ?

You don't allow him to open his wallet.
You give him gifts
You spend your entire time with him

well, wrong.. this is what I did..

I never opened my wallet which had 5 Rs (It had 5 Rs on Jan 1st and continues to have only 5 Rs :( .. visitors Kindly contribute some money to this poor soul ).. He paid for me as well..
I never gave him anything !
I never spent time with him due to stupid case studies and classes...

Finally to atone for all my sins, I went to him and ...
asked him for 10 K as emergency fund to save me from defaulting....

Hail friendship !!!!

I read..

  1. Law
  2. Graph Theory as a part of Supply chain analytics ( The proff asked me in the class whether Graph Isomorphism is NP-complete :P)
  3. Marketing
  4. One Marketing subject which is more of HR rather than marketing
  5. Finance - Income Tax
Is there anything else I can do in the next two months? I guess the only subject I haven't touched formally would be Medicine :D.
The only problem is that I have to sit through HR class , rush to Graph theory class and finish my day with a Law class... at the end of the day I don't remember or recollect any damn thing.

His love...

Its official :) ...

The guy whom I would have married if he were a gal, finally found his lady love.

Here is the Toast, To Him and To His lady love - Let the love flow, Let him be the cheralathan and she be the Nachallai....


Carla Bruni to the Daily mail :

"They never get mature — only age. A man is the way he is at the age of 20, basically forever. They don't seem to have an evolution. The older man is just older. They learn in life and from their job but in relationships, what they are they stay"


Are Models really Dumb :) ? or do they behave in a stupid way to enhance their sexuality or girlishness or whatever ? (Because I do know few guys who like gals pretending to be dumb )

Received a mail today from a Friend of mine during IIT days ...

How are you?
Just wanted to say hi to u. Long time since we spoke.
"Even though we've changed and we're all busy finding our own place in the world, we all know that when the tears fall or the smile spreads across our face, we'll come to each other because no matter where this world takes us, nothing will ever change so much to the point where we're not at all still friends just because we are not keeping in touch."
I read the above thing on net somewhere and I donno y..........u came to my mind.
Mail me how u r n whatz happening in ur life when u r free.



Friendship is like a rain.. Enjoy that as long as it lasts..
I could never relate to the above sentence three years ago.. But I can relate to that now..
Sometimes you wish the rain lasts for ever,along with a sunshine and a rainbow...

-Just like chettan, Farhan in France
-Just like kaadu
-just like him at Munich
-just like so many other people in my life
-just like an unknown girl .. ahem... ahem.. :P

As of now, I m not sure whether it is a sign of maturity or death of a passionate angry young man..

But let me note this fact in this post.. I have stopped cribbing (Note: conditions apply :P..see the last line).

I do feel disappointed that things are not going my way but cribbing is a strict No-No these days.
Life in a B-school comes with its own strings. The biggest pain in the ass are the pre-placement Talks of companies. A cliched PPT will have following slides
  1. why their company is a "hep" place to work(followed by few slides picturing people in the company playing innovative and thought provoking games like Hide and seek) .
  2. Some arbit Magazine rating them as the best place to work ( conveniently omitting the fact that magazine would have rated their US offices :P)
  3. Some Process flow in their company (with a font size of 8, No one would be able to read the slides)
  4. some jargons like competence,challenges thrown in.
Finally the PPT would be followed by a Tea session where bakras of tomorrow will interact with Bakras of yesteryears :P.

My dream PPT:
  1. Should end in 2 minutes
  2. The compensation slide should be the first
  3. The roles offered should be second slide
  4. Any questions ? should be the third slide
Condition : I ll continue to crib in my blog :P

Massacre of a Minnow

Finally I realised what is meant by getting "Raped" in an interview....
An eye-opener for further ones down the road...


Mozilla Fire fox is the culprit. Suddenly Firefox stopped working in my sick windows OS.
I tried installing Firefox2 and failed.
Finally when I managed to install Firfox 3 - Beta version, I grinned :D

I couldn't believe that I am one of the firefox addicts now. I couldn't imagine browsing in IE and stopped browsing until I found some time to tweak with firefox.

1) Tomorrow is one of the "BIG" days in life...
2) "Shwaas" - A good Marathi movie.. Loved it

My crush :P

On your birthday...

Jan 12th...

I remembered.. without orkut's help ( these days it's orkut which reminds us about close friends' Birthday. Thats what a unknown girl claimed :P)

The song I dedicate to you: "Alizee - Moi Lolita" ( I can't dedicate "Alizee" to you :P so you get the song and I get Alizee )

Pity, I thought that someone will dedicate a song to you :P.

Its not yet time to call you and enquire whether you ll "G.A.T.E" crash this year. Hope you do crash this year.

Sunday, January 6, 2008


I lost it.
I lost it for the right reasons.
I do not want to be perceived as a rebel and a Non-conformist.
All my friends advised me to move on.. they said "it can happen again" in life...
I have to concentrate on my career and my job interviews ahead.
Eventually I had to give up..
I couldn't fight. Job first and ..... Hair next :P

I got my hair cut today :P ...

P.S. Such a long hair :( .. sob sob.. !! ..

Dhil Chata Hai !!

Chief, AA and the backpacker :P at Marsaille (chateau De if)

Future of Linux

Unless Linux is optimised for Mobile phones, the future is not bright.. and it is not yet optimised(as far as I know)..

I felt and inferred it after doing some research on mobile phones...

my logic is as follows( from Brand leader perspective) :
Price of multimedia phone drops --> more people use it(currently mobile penetration is more than Computer penetration) --> more people use Linux based mobiles and are comfortable with it --> people buy laptops --> People are not averse to use Linux in laptops.

I seriously believe that biggest advantage of Microsoft is their marketing ability and ability to foresee things.

1) I Haven't updated my knowledge on Google's Android platform which might be open source.
2) I have started liking gadgets ever since I saw an I-phone :) ...

I am not...

I am not a Jesus Christ who would carry others' sins...
I am not responsible for your actions...
I backpack with you until you reach your destination...
and you reached your destination two years back.. I had other travel plans in my itinerary..

you are free to imagine that
my destination is not reachable;
I am the sinner;
I am responsible for your actions;
I missed you;

I am a narcotic
who would help you feel better by speaking your mind;
by telling you the words you want to hear;

(this post was written after I thought that I put too much pressure on myself by writing the previous post... )

p.s: This post DOES NOT apply to my friends...

Forgive me for whatever Happened two-three years ago..

She reminds me the vulnerability of women..
she reminds me the doggedness of women..

I repent for whatever I did to a pure, innocent soul two years back...

P.S. A mail which I got today bled my heart and reminded me of my sins...


Marsaille ...

The beautiful Mer Med...
