So how was my Birthday on 28th July

I will not say that I do not give special attention to my birthdays. Specially, I take some resolutions, some aims ...and, though resolutions do break ... but aims, interestingly always get accomplished(well my aims are not so heroic kinda). This time, I planned to celebrate my birthday myself. Actually, my brother who stays with me, was at home (my hometown) and my birthday was on Saturday this time, so I planned something new for my own goodness.
The first thing that came to my mind was to release my project "Tarang", which is one of my three personal, open source projects that I have planned to work on for rest of my life. Well "Tarang" is quite a bit technical at this stage, and at present it will be comprehensive to developers only. I chose 12O'clock, (the usual birthday bashing time) for its release. And yes, finally I released it ... I really felt nice at that moment --- it was not that I have submitted it at BOOST, or I have completely released it in public, ... neither I have done some really extreme geeky thing ... nevertheless I enjoyed the moment. One cause was obvious --- "Tarang came on some surface", and other cause was --- it was quite a moment for a person who worked so hard on it, that his evenings, and weekends were well defined, quite mechanical for almost 6 months (even more). And you know, when you work like this, there are good enough chances that you will keep loosing friends. Those who say that there are people who do understand, have very weak micro level analytical skill!
I was waiting for phone calls by 12 ... Interestingly none came ... my parents thought I would be sleeping, my sister Nandi was ill ... But as the morning started I got lot of phone calls. Though all of the calls that I got, were not very charming kind ... and I also answered in a very formal sense ... thank you ... great, you have remembered me ... and so on ... As usual ... I took it as a reality ... Most usually, any friendship has an interesting attribute --- people do not want you to be much socially conscious, they want to be in a closed system with you. If you are describing a bigger canvas, of which they may not be a part, of which they do not have prolonged benefits, there are good chances that they will abandon you. Please do not analyze these lines keeping usual meaning of canvas, benefits, etc. However, if you have time, keep thinking.
Cook came in morning. After that, I went to bank. Borrowed some amount ... I waited whole evening, I thought I may have to spend some money over party ...

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…

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 …
