Day 1 : 1:30 AM


These days I almost sleep by 2 to 3 AM. Some days it even went to 4 AM. I wonder and people may not believe, I was the same person who used to protest in hostel in his first year, to be allowed to turn of the light by 10 PM! Part of this overstretching may be attributed to Internet. Not sure, how many others have slipped into same kind of habit. Nevertheless Internet is a kind and knowledgeable friend. And though I could see that it might make people more non socializing, mechanical or may infuse monotonicity in behavior; but it is boon for those are forced (say directly or indirectly) to remain reclusive. Kind of survival factor.

Any ways, I will start writing more and more on this blog. Will restart the "Day #" series. And will try to put what happened on the day. Sort of Diary.

Raj Kapoor's birthday was on 2nd June. I had the chance to go through his interview on BBC. I must say he overall presents a great personality, his Voice is unhurried, calm I was quite attentive towards this interview.

In between I tried to concentrate on Thomas Heath's Euclid book. I did concentrate, but did not progress much. I have read this book may be six or seven times, yet I wanted to further into details of tussle between Aristotle and Plato on various Geometrical definitions. Again in this book I met the word "Monad",  and then since I paused, and felt the word is quite multilayered and an expansion of it would require perseverance. It will be interesting if I could expand on the meaning of this word, and hopefully write on it in this blog. Though you may like to jump to wiki.

Interestingly, an another question that came to my mind, was regarding culture of this city, - Bangalore. Does it possess anything which can be said cultural to it? I do not know precise meaning of the term "Cosmopolitan", yet is Bangalore a Cosmopolitan city?

Perhaps we have become too clever, and we all have answers for everything. So may be my above question may appear like irritation out of something being repetitive.

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…
