I am standing at the bus stop,
My necktie is going all flip flop,
The hair you combed is messed again,
And all the kisses seem to be in vain,

I wonder if you packed my lunch box,
And my toes want to get out of these socks,
The water bottle feels too heavy now,
I want to be alright, but don’t know how,

I look on the street, the children are playing,
They are also grown ups, why no school for them,
I wonder if you just wanted to send me away,
This single thought makes my head go down in shame,

I see the school bus coming to my stop,
I see the open windows,from which many heads pop,
I think of you and my heartbeat goes fast,
Wonder if even one day I am gonna last,

Then I hear your voice, telling me to be good kid,
Telling me to be brave and things which I will need,
I smile at your touch and kiss you on cheeks,
In your arms I find the love I seek.

I know this is something I have not written in a long long time. Was just missing my Ma and phone nahi lag raha thaa….so Thought of writing something for her. 🙂 Love you Ma.

Well, Actually its not a fracture.

Its merely a major sprain that got into my muscles due to 2X180 degree twisting of my ankle bone and as doc said, I had either a very good luck or very strong bones that my bones survived.

I would like to believe the second part, for I know how bad my luck is.

5 days plaster, or may be even more. Will write a lot of poems in these 5 days. Will start my UPSC preparations too. Will try to forget MBA thing as it attracts me no more after the eye openers. Will try to eat less food and drink even lesser fluid 😐 . For obvious reasons 😐

A plaster :sigh: . I am gonna get it autographed 😀 😀 😀


>Well…. 😦

watever….
I miss u idiot!

>Its time.

Goodbye Mumbai. Love ya. 😦

Will miss ya a lot.

😦


>I know I have to be mad to be writing this post…almost same as my earlier post… Pardon me if it seems boring sort of to u people….This time it is PERSONAL…

I love you…I love you and that includes all the fights I have had with you, all the things we have enjoyed together, all the things we have discussed over and all the things we have argued on…It includes every damn phone call to you at the cost of my dinner meal…It includes every damn risk you have taken talking to me despite your issues…it includes all the verbal abuses I’ve thrown at you…It includes all the things you have said to me and made me suffer about… It includes every smile you have given me…every touch I felt of you on my skin…Every night I thought of you and cried to realise you are not gonna be with me…every lie i told you only to tell you the truth 10 minutes later… every thing I have done for you and never told you that I did it….

I love you…and yes..I am still crazy for you… come to me and tell me you do not feel the same way I do…tell me if u can…else I am going to delete this blog within 1 month… with no more sane posts…yes..u got me right…and with will end all of my online presence…not to forget that I do not have an offline one… 🙂

P.S. :- I love you sweetheart

Let me tell you the story of two people. Friends or foes, you decide.

There was a man who was known for his witty remarks and rustic charm. The other claimed to have the support of the Muslims and Paswans. One had the trust in his M-Y equations, while the other boasted of being able to play the role of king-maker at the centre stage of Indian politics. One had ruled a state for about one-and a half-decade with all the members of his family coming to the party and enjoying their share of the moolah, while the other hogged the limelight due to his hold in the rural and poor population of Bihar.

Yes friends, I am talking about none other than two of of the most popular politicians of Bihar in recent decades, Mr. Laloo Prasad Yadav and Mr. Ram Bilas Paswan. The ones who have ruled the minds and hearts of lakhs of people once, and seemed almost invincible in their prime. The irony is though, one always goes down after her/his prime.

Though with all the might on their side and all sorts of equations(quadratic, tertiary whatever!!) favouring  them, it is now clearly visible that they have been left with almost nothing but an imaginary role to play.
They thought it was the perfect betrayal, they said it wil make them the king makers, and more than often, also loud mouthed the talks of actually getting the “power”.
A new front was formed and even the “mighty” and “confident-now” congress party seemed to have lost the ground beneath them.

Yes, whatever may be the views of the congress party top notch leaders now, everyone who keeps in touch with news would know how desperate were they back then. So desperate, that they didn’t shy away from approaching the “Miracle Man” of NDA in Bihar, Hon’ble CM Mr. Nitish Kumar!!! The way it all happened, the desperate-ness of the situation and the inability of both parties said it all, they were in deep shit!! Even the CM in question was unsure about going with NDA(remember, this relation between JD-U and BJP spans more than 10 years!!). All he could say was, “We will see”,”Yes we are with NDA ‘as of now’ ” and “who has seen tomorrow?”
Yes friends, I am right because this is one thing I can’t go wrong about. As it turns out, the night this interview of CM with Barkha dutt was the night I lost the most precious gem of my life and my mind would not have let go of anything it caught that day… Anyways, let’s not mix politics with emotions. It is usually sour.

Coming back to our self proclaimed philosophers, termed aptly as fool-osophers by me. Here we had a man who had done an almost impossible task, a miracle during his tenure as railway minister by turning the ever loss making, pathetic symbol of slowness, a PSU in shambles, into one of the most profitable enterprise controlled by the government of India. We had another man who said his motive was to bring the lower portion of the society into the mainstream and give them their share of GDP(Yeah he did say that, Mr. Paswan) One was sought after for the Management lessons not by just the IIMs; the premier institutes for management education in India; but even from Harvard and Yale, the Mecca and Medina of Management education.

Still, the guy somehow manages (or shall we say mismanages??) to screw up his own election campaign. The family people turned against him. Even the old friends deserted him. Management guru, huh!!Do you still think so?

Let’s have an insight of why this fiasco happened in first place.
Our Mr. Ex-railway minister’s wife, another ex-CM who barely knew the spelling of chief minister, or even Bihar, before she became CM, played a very crucial role in his downfall.She called Nitish Kumar “names”(Not very good ones…I think so) and cursed him. Okay, we all do these things, but not in front of microphones and cameras..and live on TV. I believe she was frustrated even beyond the trauma she faced when she had to attend her A,B,C,D classes… :p It was really hilarious to see her on television and blabbering words she doesn’t know the meaning of.
Our superhero perhaps tool a cue from her book an went on to “bulldoze” a guy as insignificant and ignoraant of his actions as Varun Gandhi.
Varun Gandhi? Well, unless you are a staunch supporter of people who kill anyone who is not hindu, you must be thinking I have mistaaken someone for the PM-in making, Rahul Gandhi. Sorry mate, Varun Gandhi was the latest fiasco of BJP(one of many in this election), courtsey Mr. L.K. Advani and Kalyan Singh, not to forget the Hitler-returns-Narendra Modi.

Anyways, our Mr. LP Yadav commits these scandalous-yet, to be ignored-mistaakes and partners with I-am gonna win-No matter I do anything or not-Mr. Paswan and forms a 4th front(I really feel sorry for this country which is forced to have four fronts…normal people have only one.. 😐  )

Results:-

RJD- 4 seats won against 20 of the last time.

LJP- 0 seat (or is it seats??) against 4 of the last time.

Someone has said, “There is a difference between genius and stupidity. Genius has its limits”

Our friends were limitless.

This emptiness, creeps into the chamber of my mind,
Telling me to withdraw, to take a step behind,
I am confused, my eyes are blank,
I do not know how deal with this,

I was at peace, with everything in place,
Or was it? Now the only question in the “empty space”?
It all seems absurd, to even ponder over,
when I do not even want a friend, or a lover,

Losing my way or learning? I can not say!
For I never knew to think like this way,
I fumble at the door, the door of the knowledge,
I want know why this change I can’t understand,

Which way to go, I swear I don’t know,
Will you leave me or deliver a deadly blow?
I want to run far far away from here,
To a place where, no fear would be near,

Is it a meteor unknown, from the deeps of another world?
Or is it the rose, from my very own garden? I don’t know!!
Glowing inside me, or is it a hallucinating spark?
I wander in the mist, searching for a light in the dark,

hmmm… Nice title…what you think? I think it is pretty good. Nice way to start a rather controversial issue. Well, not everyone agrees with me, but then, I never ask anyone to. :p

Back to the topic again, “Are you suffocating?” I mean, I am not talking about that cigarette that you smoked 37 minutes ago, neither about how you are feeling in the loo this early morning. No…. I prefer to talk about them rather straight forwardly . Arghhhhh…ok ok..

When was the last time you really felt at peace with her/him without wanting to feel so? I mean, you should not be looking for internal satisfaction, it should be always there, right? I have seen many relationships; not to forget some of mine too; where either one or the both of the participants(well a rather crude term to use, but then, lets be frank here at least) were just pretending so much to show the other one that they were happy that they almost forget the real meaning of happiness. It is not something which takes a ticket and catches a train, so that it can reach to you at a specified time and place. I hope you do not have that notion of happiness.

So do you feel a longing inside you even now? Despite having so many parties to attend together, how many times do you have dinner together on a non-party day? Is the relationship only meant for parties? I mean okay, in Indian context I am not going to be focusing much on Live-in relationships(though I want to, and I promise will write on it someday), still having a dinner with your better half is no more a taboo in Indian culture!! At least I do not think so! So, tell me, despite him doing so many “cute” and “sweet” things for you, how many times it had been the case that you have expected him to show some more love and were disappointed, only to put up a face still smiling and never telling him how you felt. You’d rather tell your inner self that everything is okay and it is the way life goes. Does it?? Is it what you wanted 1 year back? Are the scenarios same? Are you afraid of talking to him about the issues on your mind? Or are you too afraid of letting go of the stability in your life? Afraid of feeling like a loser?

For guys, I think I can explain your agony with your loved one much better as I am a guy(yes…stop grinning). “Why was her cell busy despite her telling about her studying and not being able to talk to me”, or “Is there someone else”, or “Why is she behaving so strange” to “Why she always starts the same issue…I told her there is nothing between me and my ex!!!” . Remember something??? :p Yes…that’s the way with guys, they will think all this, and will never ask the other one just because they are too afraid and insecure about making things worse than they already are. Wake up guys, it is the best thing to mouth your fears rather than accumulating them inside which often results in bizarre results. It is never wrong to say what is in your mind…never

So .. all I want to say is that do not suffocate… rise up and say what is inside your mind…if the other person loves you so much as both of you think, there should not be any space for such holes in a relationship which suck away all the melody from it.

How often do you find a person who is an Engineer,Doctor,Journalist,Teacher etc etc etc, and is preparing for MBA? Not quite often? Well, I guess you are a loner, you do not socialize at all then.
Out of 10 people I meet, 7 are preparing for MBA or thinking about it as they “think”(I doubt that) that it would “give a boost” to their careers. Some say they want a better paycheck(Now this I can understand, but still have issues with it), while others say that it is their “Dream”. Still many are out there who simply are not too sure of the reason, but again they “think” it must be good, since everyone is doing it( Like it’s some new form of sex…eh…)

Well, why do we feel the need in first place to get an MBA degree? Is it the money?Or the career boost (or bournvita for that reason) thing? Or is it just a hazy dream(do not confuse with “wet dreams”) ? My question is, is it really what we think it is?

No! It is not that. There has to be more to it. Don’t you want to become someone else because you failed in becoming what you were meant to be, what you were taught to be. You failed to grasp the engineering concepts and today you are at complete loss as to how to direct the workers under you to fix a certain machine which stopped working last weekend. You failed to understand your networks paper properly(spending too much time checking girls out in the class?) and the result is today you can’t fix the issue in creating a secure network at your workplace. Or do you find yourself at the abyss of self confidence when it comes to manage your class, or reporting an accident to your local newspaper office?

So you have decided to run away. Great. You are on your way to become a certified loser. I would not stop you. Why? Simple, you would go on committing such mistakes, giving me apt reason and matter to write on(you see, writing is my hobby…and I sure enjoy it). Also, it would take more than just an advice to make you realise that you have committed a mistake by taking up MBA course at the cost of abandoning your current profession. It will take you a very much coveted MBA job to realise that. The moment when you realise that the MBA job is even tougher than your previous job, you would feel like running away from there also. And I bet you would not have any place to go then. Why? Ask yourself, weren’t it you who abandoned all you had just to get that “dream” fulfilled, to get that “extra money”, to have your share of career”boost”(I prefer complan and bournvita btw) and to get that sense of “I am doing it the right way as everyone is doing it that way…So what if I am getting screwed? Everyone is!!” Well I don’t think you would have same notions about all this MBA things then as you have now.

I am not advocating against MBA or something. I am just saying, do not go for it thinking that it will “change the course of your life”, because it would not. If you think running away from your responsibilities can make you immune to them, or can transform you into something who would learn other things quite effortlessly, then either you are a genius, or you-know-who. Riding up the ladder is not a bad thing, it never is! But jumping from one ladder to another just because yours had a tilted leg puts you in a grave danger. You do not have your ladder which you knew so well, and you will have to balance yourself on a new ladder which will sure take more time and even more effort.

So be sure about this MBA thing before you fill up the forms.. 😛

PS:- All this was written in a hazy state of mind, under the effect of studying hacking, web designing, Quants, EURC , hard rock music and a resolution of being smoke free(and hopefully liquor free) for a lifetime(which is not gonna end anywhere soon, not atleast for next 50-60 years)

Well, after a zillion years(or so it seemed), I have decided to write something which doesn’t sound negative. It is special to me, as it is for someone very special in my life.

I saw you standing there, looking far in the moonlight,
like a new young bird all set, to take her maiden flight,
Your face was fresh like dew, all lights looked dim by you,
As you talked to guy, I later learnt he was your nephew,

You talked like the cuckoo sings,your hands resembling its wings,
Your eyes were blue like the sea, Oh! How I wished they could see me,
Your skin fairer than snow, and hair like the river flow,
Your cheeks redder than a rose,I wished I could hold you close,

I would never forget that day, when you turned and smiled at me,
I felt light like a feather, in the sky flying high and free,
You came to me and talked for a while,and all I remember is your Smyle,
I remember your laugh,its sound, and my heart went round and round,

You left soon for home,it felt like you’ve gone to Rome,
In though among my friends, I felt like am all alone,
It was the feeling which kept me awake at nights,
While your eyes brightened my heart with its miraculous lights.


>He Comes in the morning, we are still asleep,
Oblivious of outer world, while he picks our crap.
He always stinks, and I feel like yukkkk,
Sometimes I pity him, for his hard luck,

He goes from house to house, but seldom his own,
Leaving his son every morning,who has not yet grown,
I detest him, “What a filthy person!!”,
For he wears the same stinky clothes,come may whatever season,

I eat the sandwich, with the coffee or juice,
He works so hard, so that he can pay off his dues,
He works hard in the summer heat,
while I enjoy my wine and meat,

He toils hard for his family on the footpath, well so do I!
But he dreams of unending work walking all day, and never to fly,
I throw a bowl of rice, didn’t feel like eating,
His children have not eaten for last 2 days,

I wear my new jeans, my 3rd this month,
His wife mends her dress, coz its time for festivals,
My kids wanted a new TV, I bought it today,
His family was happy to get a gift, a new roof cover,

Had a party at home, for its new year’s eve,
We ate good, drank and it was fun to groove,
Next day I didn’t see him,”Must be celebrating!”
I was pissed off by afternoon, coz the garbage was smelling,

Two weeks have passed, and I know he won’t come now,
Some drunk drove on the footpath, and “The Ragpicker” was gone.
His face appears before me, whenever I see the rag bin

I perhaps miss that wrinkled face,his gleaming eyes,
and the yellow gloves on his hands,
Though I got someone else for the job,
His picture in my memory still hangs.


>Well, finally it is over. I am really kind of glad about it. You really don’t like it when your clothes smell of tobacco( and that too burnt) and all your face gets itchy, not to forget the pungent smell left in your hand after you have just finished smoking. It is really a wierd feeling(provided you are conscious about your cleanliness) to have such a smell around you all the day.

That was just one of the million reasons I quit smoking. Well to list some more…

First and the most important, “SMOKING CAUSES CANCER”. Come on… there is no lying about that. It is one of the most dangerous addictions ever hit mankind since it discovered sex. But though both seem to be giving you “a flying state of mind”, the former makes sure you get to the grave(not flying, but being driven a truck or something)
I decided(like million times before) that it was enough for me for one lifetime to take in so much of the smoke. Surprisingly, when I went through a thorough checkup recently, nothing popped up. I mean, nothing like a patch in my lungs, or High BP, or something else in my intestines/throat. I was shocked. Te first thought that came to mind was, “Shit! Now they have started adulterating Ciggis too…?? All my money into nothing? “
On a more serious note, I thought this is one chance God has given me( Though I do not believe in God a lot.. I do a little), and if I throw away this one, I’d never be able to get rid of it.
So, I quit even though it doesn’t seem to have affected me in any serious way(apart from ripping my purse and taking most of it away).

Well atleast I am consistent in this one area. Of quitting things(and sometimes people)
Also, there is this urge among the young men(especially) to look cool. I know a very good friend of mine, Suhas(name changed), who started smoking just to impress other(read girls) and to look cool. He thought it was an integral part of life to do such things. Well, I told him when he was lighting up the first ciggi of his life,”Suhas, do not start this. You will become addicted”. “I wont”, he said.

Today, Suhas smokes atleast a pack daily and says to me, “You were right Navneet, I want to quit now but can’t. Also, doesn’t this look so cool?” I just smile. Well, I do not feel guilty. Atleast I tried.

Another friend, Prashant(name chaanged). He was my roommate and is still among one my best friends. Its another thing that we do not talk much anymore. Anyways, this was the guy who introduced me to the world of smoking and porn. Well, I never watched any till I went into college.
So here was this guy, who was smoking since…ummm…1999..and we met in college in 2004. He was so thin my pants used to slip away from him. I too was thin back then, not now…lol.. So he always used to smoke. Morning tea, after breakfast, 10 am tea, before lunch tea,after lunch ,afternoon tea and blah blah blah… I wondered how could he do that with such a fragile health.
2006 october. The guy fell sick. Vomiting and high fever. Blood too. He was taken to his home by his brother and when after 2 months he returned, he could barely be recognized. He was half of his previous self. It was really shocking for all of us.

Initially he didn’t tell us what he actually suffered from. Then one day he broke down in front of some close friends and told us he was detected with T.B. We were shocked. I mean we see these things all the time in movies and TV. But we never think it could happen to us. There lies the problem. We keep telling ourselves lies that nothing will happen to us. After all, who has died after smoking one cigarette??? huh…blasphemy!!

So, this guy was totally barred from many things. His brother came to stay with him for a month and he was undeer constant medication. He took the university paper in that state of mind and body. You sure won’t wanna suffer like that.

We talk sometimes. I ask if he has been smoking again. He tells me… “Not now..never ever after college.” A beer is what he has sometimes to get over with the tension of daily life. But smoke? No way.
He always used to say something which I remember. Though many people said it, but seems I took the thing most seriously when he said it.
He said,” You will never be able to quit”

I called him yesterday. I told him I quit.


>Watched Shawshank redemption after a gap of 7 months. A movie which always stirs up my soul and helps me conquer my demons. It is a real inspiration. 😀

I am.
