A day should be 48 hours

Howdy everyone,

I am sorry for not being able to update the blog since quite some while now. I am running very short on time since last fortnight and I expect this to continue for five more weeks.

However I will try my best to steal some time and write some posts here. Surely do expect a Christmas story from me.

I will reply to the comments in the previous posts and will drop into everyone's blogs really soon.

The Damn Planets

First off, an image that I came across recently demonstrating the apocalypse with a dose of soft sugary chill-pill. RELAX: should we really?

But try to imagine the apocalypse of any other planet than earth, say Mercury. What would happen then? Would that have any effect one earth?

Well, I think it will have quite some effect on earth. At least to the people who hold a deeply rooted belief in Astrology. A planet will vanish in day from all the calculations that are used to predict future.

So what would happen then? Will everything change? Will it doom all the people who have mercury in an ascending position on their 12-boxed play card called horoscope? Or will everything be just as normal as possible and earth will go on without taking a notice of the cosmic accident?

The truth is, neither do I know the answers to all these questions nor do I even care anymore about them. But I am ranting them out here so as to express my fury on the ones who believe in nothing else that astrology.

After some telephonic conversation during the morning drive, I was super-pissed on the astro crap that is presumed to be acting as the guiding path to some people I know and hence, this post was brought to life. It might seem to be totally non-coherent thoughts to some, but that is the way my mind is set right now.

Happy Thanksgiving

Stumbling over the internet I found this collection of beautiful words and I really loved it, so just wanted to share this with everyone here.

  • At least two people in this world love you so much they would die for you.
  • At least fifteen people in this world love you in some way.
  • The only reason anyone would ever hate you is because they want to be just like you.
  • A smile from you can bring happiness to anyone, even if they don't like you.
  • Every night, SOMEONE thinks about you before they go to sleep.
  • You mean the world to someone.
  • If not for you, someone may not be living.
  • You are special and unique.
  • There is someone that you don't even know exists, who loves you.
  • When you make the biggest mistake ever, something good comes from it.
  • When you think the world has turned its back on you, take a look: you most likely turned your back on the world
  • When you think you have no chance of getting what you want, you probably won't get it, but if you believe in yourself, probably, sooner or later, you will get it.
  • Always remember the compliments you received. Forget about the rude remarks.
  • Always tell someone how you feel about them; you will feel much better when they know.
  • If you have a great friend, take the time to let them know that they are great.

By the way, a very happy thanksgiving to all of you. Enjoy shopping. I am going on a shopping rampage tomorrow at various electronics stores looking out for HDTV, MP3 players, and lotsa other gadgets.

Take care everyone.

The Combo Post (My blabberings + Tag)

Hello everyone. Lately I have not been able to keep in touch with any of you and I heartily apologize for the same.

I think time has begun to erode my creativity since the last couple of weeks. Many important changes are into the movement and it seems that I am choosing between multiple doors at every stage and then rushing again to the next stage to make sure none of them close before I get there. A never ending game of running and choosing the next path to run on has given me less than minimum time to think creatively. But not to forget that some of these doors are leading to heaven. :)

Also, some useless pursuits have started assuming precedence over the better ones which I really feel sad about. Will need to figure out a way to come out of the prevailing monsoon without getting wet. Music practice too has reached below the acceptable bottom line which makes me furious at times.

Reading time is very scarce. Though I have sort of found the solution to this problem, I will still have to be careful on this one. I have joined a reading group for the next year that has one mandatory read every month followed by discussions.

Nevertheless, my banters out of frustration won't cease right now. How is everyone here? Do drop in once in a while to say hi. :)

Ashu tagged me a while back, and hence without any further delay I would like to finish it. I need to write about three things that I can never let go in my life. So here I roll...

1. Music: As the first and foremost hobby of mine, this particular invisible yet still lively thing has possessed me since my childhood. The first ever experience being the lullaby that my mom sang to me and it just went further with the first flute that I got as a gift from my dad. Since then I have tried my hand on around dozen instruments and always enjoyed fiddling with them, not to forget, piano being my favorites of them all. I would never wish to leave this beautiful pursuit which I think I have inherited from my parents.

2. Reading: As you must have gathered from my blabbering above, I feel too sad for being slowed down on this one. So the second thing I could feel now that I should not lose ever is my readings. Books are not only a man's best friend, but also they serve as the best teachers in grim times.

3. My faith in myself: The third and final thing that I feel is the most important is one's faith in oneself. The moment you start staying away from your self, you are as good as dead is what I think. It is only because of my faith in myself that I have kept going through the dark tunnel at times. The never ending hope of light at the end of the darkness is even more illuminating than the light that you see at the end of it. Do matter what, I never want to lose this light that shines the brightest (in Vishesh's terms).

So there it goes. I feel good after quite many days to have updated the blog finally and be done with the pending tag.

Adios. :)

What The [Bleep] Do We Know

Read all chapters here
Chapter 2. Two Words

One week later...

Eve was relaxing in her cave with nothing much to do. Adam had disappeared all of a sudden since last week without any signs. This was good in the sense that she was able to put her to good sleep since a couple of days with no snoring noises in the cave. But this also sowed the first seeds of doubt in the first female brain.

She stretched out her limbs wide and took to herself the immense pleasure of dusting off the goodnight sleep from her body. She got up and started to reluctantly take initiatives of the daily humdrum choirs. But first off she decided to get herself something to eat and with that intent she moved to pluck some fruits from the tree.

Just then she saw something in her way and her brain stopped working. She stood there gawking the ugly thing that gave her a wide grin. The smile made her scare and she could not move as if her feet were buried in the ground. The ugly started moving towards her and now she was even more scared. She gathered all her courage and made a wailing noise loud enough to be heard at quite a distance in the jungle where all the animals lived.

Eve started running in the other direction to head towards the jungle. And behind her was running the ugly creature with an equally comparable speed. She kept shouting out for help and the creature kept calling her name thereafter. All the animals, disturbed by this early morning cacophony, started to run towards the direction from where the voices came. They knew it were the humans. Must be some new plan of theirs to disturb the golden peace around here they thought.

And just then all of them met at the central point close to where the donkey was still sleeping undisturbed by this rampage in his newly carved home. The slow running dog, who broke his leg in a kick fight with the donkey, could not catch with rest of the crowd and stumbled over the donkey on his way.

"WHAT THE-", shouted the donkey as he woke up and there he saw the dog again. This made him furious and gave a vicious look at the dog. The dog sensed the balls of fire about to emit from the donkey's eyes and got his feet moving again. The donkey too started catching behind, still unaware of any other happening. As they reached the crowd, the dog slowed down and managed to make a stop. But the donkey kept moving at the same speed and could not stop until he applied a full break with his legs making a screeching sound. A cloud of dust formed around the donkey's feet and he landed himself in front of the row.

Everyone ogled at the creature standing right in front of them. Eve too joined the side of the animals and was still shivering with fear. The creature's body was divided into two colors - the upper part being red and the lower being a shade of blue. None had seen these big eyes, dark black in color, big enough that everyone could see their miniature faces in it fromm a distance. He also had the most unusual feet found then; half white, half blue.

The donkey started in an open-mouthed awe for a minute and then bumped into tons of laughter. "Man. I had seen a draft version of the monkey when God was making it and I thought it was the funniest thing I would ever see on earth. But this one beats it by far. I thought God did not have a sense of humor until now", he said in between lapses of his uncontrollable laughter.

"Who's he? I've never seen him", asked the creature.

"He's an ass. He was the first one around here", replied the monkey.

"Hey! Don't call me an ass. The name is Neil. Neil Headstrong. Code name - 007."

"What is this 007?", asked again the creature.

"Some crap that he blabbers about that he was created on the seventh day and all. So he calls himself 007, but nobody's sure as what's true", answered the monkey again. "But who are you? And what did God said to call you?"

"You guys didn't recognize me?", he asked with a gesture of surprise. "I'm Adam. The first man."

"You ain't looking the least bit like Adam. What in the heaven's name has happened to you? Did you again eat some forbidden fruit or something like that?", asked the owl, the wisest of all animals.

"And where were you since the last one week?", inquired Eve.

"I've got two words for you all - ALIEN ABDUCTION", replied Adam, leaving everyone floating in a state of unknown confusion.

To Be Continued...
