Summer of '09

Oh when I look back now
That summer seemed to last forever
And if I had the choice
Yeah - I'd always wanna be there
Those were the best days of my life

Its around 4 in the morning. I've been feeling nostalgic about school, since I listened to Summer of 69 some two hours back. The song got stuck in my head and there goes my post after a long time( Usual show off ). Looks like I have written about you in almost every post and there has never been a single post concerning you. Well, here it is :)
You realise, this is about you don't you?

Should I stick to chronology here? 

Three of us, right from kindergarten, been a wonderful journey. Frankly I remember very few incidents, bleak memories till class four. 

Jimmy quit and Joey got married
Shoulda known we'd never get far

Class four was when he left and I never thought he'd come back. So did he. And it was just the two of us. Class seven and we were moved to two different classes. There were no special promises made? No BFF or something like that. 

Class eight and he came back to Chennai. Sadly a different place, different school. 

The two of us who remained had few occasions to interact. 

All the while you were in a different class. Time takes its own time to untwist chords that have been entwined ever since. We got introduced, still rarely interacted.

There came class eleven and that brought the four of us together. I have so much to share but there are so few words to describe what I feel for you three. 

And now the times are changin'
Look at everything that's come and gone

There came the summer of '09  when time was up. We literally had to move away from each other. No shared lunches anymore. Cricket kept us together until academics ate up everyone's day. 

This whole post may not make any sense. This knows no order. 

We still meet up atleast twice a week *touchwood* I want that to remain the same and if not increase.

I wish the four of us always have each other.

There has never been a promise made but always kept. 

I wonder to the day as when the bond was born :)

You're more of a family than friends :)

I Wish we'd remain the same till all our hairs turn grey,
I Wish we'd remain the same till we lose all our teeth,
I Wish we'd remain the same till we gift each other a walking stick,
I Wish we'd remain the same till we blow a hundred candles off our cake,
I Wish we'd remain the same always and forever, whichever comes last.

Oh when I look back now
That summer seemed to last forever
And if I had the choice
Yeah - I'd always wanna be there
Those were the best days of my life

With tonnes of love and what not,

Random musings..

I think I'm bored.

I have been totally restless since I woke up, which was around twelve in the afternoon. So bored that I was plain annoying to everyone in the house. tried to watch a movie, listen to songs nothing worked out. 
Now I'm here trying to type a post since its been long since I posted anything. And this seems to crash as well. Let me check if someone's mailed me.

Logging in yahoo..
No unread mails, hmm.

Check Rediff.
Same here, there's one single unread e-mail that I mailed myself.

Twitter? I just closed it, but still there could be something new Its Twitter after all.. 

Hmm, there's a Quiz rather Kweezzz going on. tried my hand at a few questions in the beginning. Did not work out.
I'm totally clueless even to provide lame answers.

There's facebook, hmm logging in.

Ha, exams for everyone, right. Closing window.

What shall I do now?

Ya, check usage. That's a place where there's always something new and shocking.
Oh my, i have used too much. So no internet for the last week, sigh.

Check blog traffic, comments tab, keywords to find anything funny..

Checking mail again..Twitter.. seeing if someone accidentally hit the follow button.

Sigh this is depressing.

Sending all the best messages to everyone.. people are replying immediately. Guess M3 is easy.

Should've gone to meet those three. Stupid Washing machine! Why should it get faulty on this very day and why should I be left in charge of looking after it!

This is really frustrating. 

I think I'm bored.

Obama,satyabama and appa-amma..

Truth is the hardest thing to believe.

We often misunderstand things to be one, while they come out as the exact opposite of what one imagined. So is the case with the arrival of the American first man/first black American man, Barrack Obama, to India. Most of the common men,by which I exclude Mr.Singh and his corrupt associates, believe that the arrival of the President of the states would make a change in the economic situation of our country. Well,that is not going to happen. 

He says, " Apart from the dreadful incident two years back, the Taj stands as an example for the nation's strength and it feels great to address the gathering from the very same place."

By which he actually means, "I'm glad that I was not elected President two years back and I really regret that Bush did not arrive when Terrorism went haywire two years back at the very same place".

Even after dodging all the questions and enough blaming of Pakistan,Iran and numerous other countries who don't understand what he says because they don't know English(as if the people who speak English give a damn) the media says he is discussing counter terrorism with the PM. He might as well be discussing, the terrorism at the Mumbai cine-plex ticket counters on Diwali day, which won't be revealed on account of being highly classified government info. You can't get this info even via wiki-leaks and that's why I provide you with Vicky-leaks ;)

He says America and India have come more close than ever, which invariably reminds me of Vadivel who tried to shift Delhi to South India. While Indian engineers,doctors and businessmen are waiting outside the embassy for their visas he's busy swiping his 'Visa' and dancing to Bollywood numbers in two piece( A shirt and a pant of course)

He's supposed to have signed a $10 billion deal. Well,there goes the money for Barrack/Manmohan campaign for the next elections. And this indeed would seem as a parody of the government reports. But believe me, Wiki might lie, Vicky won't.

Here, that I have included Satyabama for it sadly rhymes with Obama or so I think it does, I'm forced to make the following statements. The only Satyabama that I know of is the group of institutions run under that name. Which is a paradox. Let me tell you why. Its been portrayed as the strictest institution and its the scale which other colleges use to compare their levels of strictness with. Bite me. Its fun to be there as said by few friends who apparently belong to that chain of institutions.

The food, is immensely awesome and classrooms spacious and provide the perfect environment to sleep unlike the ones 'm forced to sit for 8 hours everyday. 

I know you wish that you could've ignored the Satyabama part completely. There goes my rating into the drains.

And my appa-amma who are not even remotely interested in whether I write about Obama/Satyabama or the annoying next door mama, are indeed interested in the Internet bills that the mailman never forgets to deliver unlike so many other important letters. And that ( and not my train of thought which hit a dead end) is making me stop with this.

Truth indeed is the hardest thing to believe.

From Kalmadi to Kamal & Maddy

The wise say, the otherwise believe-Allan O'Connor.
Ranging from Dan Brown to the 'doctor' who can fly, a common trait keeps them kicking,deception.By making people believe what they want them to believe they fill their pockets and come up with more plans to deceive people.The sole blame is on the people and not on those who succeed in deceiving.Though a major part of the educated society falls prey for the Dan Brown sort, the flying doctor ends up in producing successful actors who otherwise would be engineers who would be grumbling upon flying doctors.

Take Suresh Kalmadi for example.He makes Sharad Powar look like a middle class man travelling in an MTC bus. Politicians spend lakhs of rupees which they looted in their previous regime to come into power again to start stealing for their next campaign.This vicious wheel keeps spinning.At the end of the day its the common engineer, sorry common man who gets affected with prices increasing and pocket money decreasing.

Harm aadmi

You,or one of the yous in one of the parallel universes must be finding this post interesting.I continue for the sake of that being.Apparently, I deceived you by stating there are parallel universes existing and even more by stating that I can write interesting stuff.Now do you realise how simple it is?

What started with poochandi and otha-kannan(One eyed man and No,I'm not scolding any Mr.Kannan in Madras thamizh) follows till today where my Math prof promises to clear my doubts in the next class.We got used to being deceived and the most boasted Indian culture plays perfect host for deception.

So many ads where Aamir Khan drinks abundant amounts of tea and absurdly asks others to stay awake seems to have no effect on the Great Indian Population.We simply can't resist staring at the white woman who comes out of the airport. 

It will take few more decades for people to realise that awareness,common sense and education do not fall under the same zip code.Awareness programmes in India are conducted by the educated and for the educated(of the educated doesn't suit!Drat)

So finally as I'm content with filling enough space, all I need to convey is stay awake and don't get deceived.

Well, for those who managed to stay awake through the post and waiting to comment what does Kamal and Maddy have to do with the title, they're are doing a combo and be prepared to get deceived if Kamal plays a role wherein he's younger than Maddy, or worst case where they are both younger than Trisha.

PS: The quote in the beginning of the post was made up by yours truly.

PPS:There's no person named Allan O'Connor.Again,I made it up.Deception is even simpler isn't it? 

PPPS:I've published cartoons for the first time :D I know I'm a horrible,horrible person to make you undergo all this.Yet,leave brickbats and comments :) 

The wise say, the otherwise believe.
