And There Ends My Academic Career ...

Results have come. I passed this year also with usual mental peace. Finally, after almost twenty years of passages, I have no more usual academic class to go through. There will be no more class tests, no more subjects, no more college projects, no more round making across college campus and yes no more spicy stories. You will tell me, okay you can have PhD yaar, but then I will respond back -- "no more interest". My career was never rosy and also it was never pale, it never made me jump high, but it never made be feel remorsed, it was a typical career of an average Indian student.
I still remember how much it was tough to study Geography in school days and how many times my Father used to mention me exam schedules. I always disliked going to class and I will wonder if my average attendance through out my career will be more than 60%. Well, the white shirt and navy blue short was always boring to wear. I remember the first day when I cheated from my friend the definition of leap year. It was class 4th and still after cheating, I solved the problem in wrong way. I never had luck on my side but then whenever I laboured I got some thing. I think after that cheating incident I once cheated in GK examination in class 8th and then did forgery with Chemistry class test in class 9th. I think after that, I never cheated in my whole career. For a student like me this is enough to get proud of. And I know, nothing else but the frustration on my Father's face when I revealed to him that I cheated in GK examination, prompted me to never cheat. I don't know whether father/mother of new generation children do get angry over their child on these matters or not, but I have found in my own big family that people have started thinking that "money" matters most, "success" matters most. By the way cheating means cheating, please don't make your own personal comfortable definition.
Classes were never interesting. Geometry classes were irrelevant, whole six year period of engineering (undergrad + grad) was suffocating, even the Mathematics class was quite a bit boring, still life went on eating lot of Samosas and gossips. I always thought whether I am correct or the professor is correct. Whether my query is relevant or is it just another question coming from mental pool. I never got any answer. Yeah, now I can firmly say that I could not get any enlightening teacher in my whole career. May be because of my own attitude!!! In the whole engineering career the best enligtening tool that I found is "Computer" and ofcourse a dearsome language called "C" running it. I use to love Mathematics and Physics but I love to talk in C. You will tell me that this sounds quite techie, I will tell you - "No, its poetic."
RBC - rumor broadcasting corporation. I have been an active member of RBC. We used to launch stories across college campus. I was never part of any game, but I always loved people being part of game. Like almost all colleges, we used to launch "Aashiques" , a perfect "bakra" and one of my friend used to tell us -- "Its not like that guys do have crush for girls (to that greater extent), rather friends create a vivid picture that this guy have crush over that girl." And then their comes 14th Feb -

"Majnu where are you going."
"Don't tell any one, am going to gift Laila."

Spice is there. Stories are triggering. Ears are wide. Get,set, go. My god, sometimes it was hard to keep control over smiles. ... Ofcourse one of the job was to break bondages also!!!.
For last three months, I am partially in job. The kind of work I am involved in, has set some limitations over me to meet friends and family members. I still gossip, I still launch stories, but then the joy is somewhat less intense. Result has come and relation with college is only ceremonial.
I am remembering words from Swami Vivekananda - "Utho, jaago aur aage badho. (Wake, Rise and Go Ahead!!!) ... Work, work and Work

Sowmalya on Ramaiya Vasta Vaiya

Sowmu, my friend and the song Ramaiya Vasta Vaiya of Shree 420.
If we think from the premises of this film this song resembles the pain one is going through during the parting times.

But if we see the song from the beginning the song is being sung by a group of street people who in general does not have anything to loose or not much a thing to gain .Their singing the song indicates their casual interaction with life and easy acceptance of any good or bad. One big teaching which comes from this film is HOPE. Which reflects in a couple of plots of the film e.g. the 100 rupees flat sequence , the hope to get everything back for the poor, getting the love back after all the miss happenings.As we know this film is the journey of a small town guy coming to a big town and lost his naive ness partly due to the circumstances and partly by his inclination to be rich early (which in general every body have) .The first part of the song tries to make him remember the pure soled human with which he …

Smoke Smoke Smoke That Cigarette

Now I'm a fella with a heart of gold,
The ways of a gentleman,
I've been told.
The kind of a guy that wouldn't even harm a flea
But if me and a certain character met
That guy that invented that cigarette
I'd murder that son of a gun in the first degree.
Well not because I don't smoke myself
I don't reckon they'll harm your health
I've smoked all my life and I'm not dead yet.
But nicotine
slaves are all the same,
At a pettin' party or a poker game,
Everything's must stop while they smoke a cigarette.

Smoke! Smoke! Smoke! that cigarette.
Puff! Puff! Puff!
And if you smoke yourself to death,
Tell Saint Peter at the golden gate
That you hate to make him wait,
But you got to have another cigarette.

Now in a game of chance the other night,
Old Dame Fortune was doing me right.
The kings and queens just kept on comin' round
I played 'em hard and I bet 'em high
But my bluff didn't work on a certain guy
He kept on r…

Archie and Betty ... or Archie and Veronica

So with whom Archie should go finally ? The 600th edition's cover page suggests it could be Veronica !!!

Oh! don't say that this is their personal life, personal decision ... and one should not interfere, intervene !!! Veronica seems to be happily blogging, and cheerfully oozing her wavy words. But lo and behold, the whole blogger world is damn serious about this issue, and internet is flooded out of discussion - with whom Archie should marry !

He should marry otherwise "Bahan Jee" (sister kinda) type Betty or should he go for the "Kat" Veronica?

Its 2009. Its 68 years of Archie Andrews. He is still young, still to marry ... thanks because he is a comics character. But he is not just a comics character. Along with Veronica, Betty, Jughead, Reggie, Dilton and all of Riverdale and Riverdale High School - Archie develops on your imagination. In your teens you may have been fan of this team, your father in his teens may be fan of this team and perhaps may be your…
