I got an Award.... YIPEEEEEEE!!!

Yay.... lalalala... yuhu....yipee....!! If you're wondering if I've been hit by a truck and lost all my senses, sadly, you're mistaken..! I'm just trying to rejoice...! I've been awarded by Arshat  !!!! My first blog award...!! Yeah.. It feels good! And now that I've just seen the Oscars, I'm really into giving thank-you speeches and everything. So my speech goes like, "(very emotional... tears...glycerine induced, ready to flow...) Oh my God!! (my hands on my mouth...like those beauty queens) This is just so unexpected (I would've killed someone hadn't I got an award in this one month!) I'm...I'm so moved...I'm sorry...the tears aren't stopping... I'd like to thank... God, for providing obstacles in life, so that I could write about them and make fun of them. My parents... well, I thank them for providing the world with a precious gem, who'll bring world peace, reduce global warming, make Osama surrender...etc etc..! My sister...for...umm teaching me how I can use my nails...hehaw hehaw!! My friends...for having the clairvoyance of befriending me! AJ..for 'inspiring' me to blog. Manalee...for pushing me into writing. And last but not the least... Arshat...for giving me the award...my faith in humanity has returned... at least there are some people left to appreciate talent!!

Anyways, enough of my narcissist crap, I'll get down to business

Ok, so the rules for getting the award are 
a. Put the image on your blog
b. List 10 truths about yourself
c. Give the award to 5 other people
d. Provide meaningful quotation
The award reads "Fucking Fabulous Blog".

Waise toh, I've got this award because my blog is pretence-free and honest, so now I don't really know what truths about myself shall I reveal...! But I promise, all of them are true...obvio doofus... they're TRUTHS...they're supposed to be TRUE! Anyways, any case of heart attack shall not be blamed on the authoress. Yes.... scandalising secrets revealed ahead!

10)  For people who haven't noticed, "Like, you know", "It's like... you know", "Like" are my most used phrases. I've filed a lawsuit against Yashraj Films and Aishwarya Rai for plagiarising!

9)   I hate straightening my hair..!! But it's like childbirth... the process is laborious, but the end result is worth it! (I can see...imagine rather my college friends gasping for breath!)

8)   I never abused before 2007...! Seriously!! I was the quintessential convent girl! Still am, actually!

7)  Bachpan main when I was small, (I still am small even at 20... Damn the Gujju height genes!!) I wanted to be an air hostess...!! Then after some years, I wanted to be Shah Rukh Khan's daughter... I was just one step away from asking him to officially adopt me... the one step was that I didn't know how to contact SRK! Then in 11th, I wanted to be a doctor... till I got freaked by the sight of blood.... and yeah dissecting cockroaches! Then in FY, I wanted to be a CEO... until all B-schools unanimously decided not to admit me... and now, I want to be... err....well.... out of ideas now.... and professions too!!

6)   Contrary to point 7, I'm not at all an ambitious person...!! My only weakness... I'm too contented a person!!

5)   I wrote my first poem in 6th grade...! It was on friendship... And my mom didn't believe that I had written it myself and not copied it from my friend!! See, ghar ki murgi, dal barabar!

4)   I normally don't cry in movies... never cried when SRK died in Devdas and Kal Ho Na Ho... didn't even cry in Oye Lucky (to stop the screening, of course)... not even in TZP.... but the only movie I cried in was Na Tum Jano Na Hum. What? I'm telling you I really cried in this movie and you're laughing!?!? Rude! Yeah, I know, my taste in movies sucks!!! So, you can mail me your DVD collection, if you want!!
* For people who don't know... it had Hrithik, Esha and Saif.... and as usual, I had taken 15 people of my family to the movie... and by the end of the movie, 14 of them wanted to disown me and un-bequeath me from the will!

3)   I love watching K-soaps..... they're my daily laughter dose...!! I just love to see how melodramatic can some people's lives can be... and I think my life is filmy!! But, sadly due to pressure from my mom and sis, I can't watch them!

2)   I didn't really like Irfan Pathan the first time I saw him...! Yeah... you read it right..! I thought he needs a haircut sooner than anything on earth.... but then gradually over time, my love for him blossomed and now he's an integral part of my life...!! I wish the vice-versa was true as well... Ah! the pleasures of wishful thinking..!! Same for Imran Khan... I still think he needs an eye-brow job....! 

1)  If my college friends don't faint on this one, I'll have to conclude that they're the only shock-proof people on Earth!! I HATED gossiping before 12th...! I thought it was a criminal waste of time and never did it.. was not even interested in gossiping until everyone in junior college started gossiping about me and I started gossiping only to know what pleasure do people get in gossiping!! And, now, after 3 years of successful gossiping and bitching and being christened "The Gossip Queen" , let me tell you.... there's no bigger sadistic pleasure on Earth than gossiping!!! Yeah yeah, if you take a poll in my junior college.... I think I would be the most talked about person...! Seriously... the cat fights...the link ups... life for me, has really been filmy!! 

So, here were my 10 truths... hope you liked them! Even if you didn't I can't help it!!

About award-ing 5 other people... I'll keep it for some other time..!

And the quote.... well, I have loads.... right now, all I can think of is... "A good listener is not only popular everywhere, but after a while he knows something"  A Gossip Queen's guide for beginners in gossiping!!

In Here For a Short Break!!

Yeah, I know that I mentioned not returning before May... but, here I am..! I'd really be TIME's person of the year 2050 if I really did what I said!! So... it's been 2 weeks since I last blogged.... really long! I wouldn't have been writing right now, if not for Manalee...! Had almost quit blogging.. definitely not due to exam stress.... but just like that... had kind of lost interest in life...! But, am back... up on my feet, reinventing my interest in life, replacing my old hope with a new hope and regaining the faith in me that I lost...! Hope and faith....they are like the two atoms of oxygen for me!! Life has to go on... life doesn't really give you an option, actually! 

Anyways enough of philo talks! Please if you're like me... read: a pathetic, hopeless romantic... then listen to Rehna Tu from  Delhi-6. A.R Rahman.... Prasoon Joshi. I think that should suffice what I'm trying to say! It's the best piece I've heard in a long time. The song is about accepting and wanting to accept your lover like the way that person is and still adjusting to be able to be with each other! What took my heart were these lines :

Tujhe badalna na chahoon
Rati bhar bhi sanam
Bina sajawat... milawat
jyaada na hi kaam

Tuhje chaahon jaisa hai tu
Mujhe teri barish mein bheegna hai ...ghul jana hai
Tujhe chaahon jaisa hai tu
Mujhe tere lapat mein jalna hain...rakh ho jana hai

Haath tham chalna hi 
dono ke daye haath sang kaise 
Ek daaya hoga ek baaya hoga
Tham le haath yeh thaam le
Chalna hai sang tham le

I really really wanna watch this movie.... I've liked a female actor after a realllllllllly long time! And then I've heard Kunal Kapoor's in there too....so added eye candy! And after Dostana, Abhishek has been bearable... at least he won't be talking about his wife in this movie. Hopefully!.

Now, Dostana reminds me why one should not watch this movie on his/her iPod in a bus.... especially the song Shut up and bounce!! I can't even describe how my bajuwali aunty was looking at me when the song was playing.... she was actually thinking that I was watching...umm..err well...!! The aforementioned song is dumb... but still I feel like grooving when it plays...! Firstly the image of John emerging outta the Miami beach flashes in my brain at the rate of 1000 fps.. then the music of the song is really really good... and thirdly.... the finer nuances of the song lyrics noticed by Aanch actually has me dancing.... yeah the penguin "Happy Feet" dance...!! Bipasha is such a lucky b***h.

Now, please all the guys reading this.... please tell me.... how on Earth do you find Bipasha hot?? She's so bloody masculine!! And fat too...! Just look at those thighs in Aa Dekhen Zara with Neil Nitin Mukesh. And what's with him...?? He was so likeable in Johnny Gaddar. What happened now?? 

I know, half the people reading this are gonna faint now.... I'm feeling very sorry for (notice the change in spelling) Hurman. S. Baweja.... poor guy got dumped...! And I'm world famous in my circle for having a soft corner for guys who have been dumped!! This in no way is implying that I like this Hurman guy... !! I'm just saying that I'm feeling bad for him... that's all I can feel for him... Sorry Hurman.... had you decided to pick up Irfan Pathan for your plastic surgery, I would've been offering you tissues right now... in person!!

Yay!! Irfan's back with a bang!! Yay!!  *dances like a cheerleader*. Hey, Priety, do you have vacancy for cheerleaders kya? Because I'm really gonna be jobless in a coupla months... nobody will employ me... and neither will anybody give me an admission.... so could you please do some social service for the empowerment of women(me!). And Bloody.... Mohali.... you better win the IPL this time... I want to shut up Aanchal once and for all! Atleast... please don't lose in front of Chennai...(bloody losers.... Chennai not Mohali!)

Lakshmi and a lot of other people and almost everyone reading this post right now, are gonna quit reading my blog after I write this... !! I saw The Dark Knight..... (finally...yeah.... advantages of my new high speed internet and torrents...on my iPod.... using it for a new purpose because I've lost all faith in its shuffling capacity!) and surprisingly I didn't like it...!! Yeah.. you read it right... I'm possibly the only one on Earth not liking it! The Joker was awesome... but somehow the story wasn't that good.... or maybe to me .... because I could actually predict things...!! That's why I didn't find it to be the awesomest movie that people went to see it thrice in theatres! Also, the fact that I saw it at 3 am, in my half asleep state, could be another factor contributing to my not liking it! Please please don't stop reading my blog after having doubts on my IQ... please... I'll die due to the lack of adulation!! 

The last book I read was Abduction  by Robin Cook.... way back in June last year.... and trust me how I've survived without reading a book for so long is a mystery to myself! The first thing I'm doing the day my exams end is READ a book! Was just wikipediaing (Nupur prediciton: it's gonna be a new verb in the new Oxford edition...!) about  A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hossieni  as my favourite book... and when I read the plot again, I again had that famous lump in my throat, that this book gives people! For people who haven't read this book... please read it..! Its AWESOME! I've read so many books but none of them has had tears in my eyes!! There are so many instances in the book where you just can't hold back..! Its a great read... had been the number 2 NY Times Bestseller..! Read and liked The Kite Runner by the same author too.. but that book didn't really move me this much. The narrative of KH is the actual hero of his books.. and the flair to interwine people's lives with the backdrop of the Afghan turmoil is splendid! The entire journey from despising each other to building a mother daughter relation between Mariam and Laila is so touching...but the last line takes the cake...!! I even had a tear drop on the last line! It also highlights the plight of women in Afghanistan.... the customs...the dependance on men for everything... the lack of medical facilities... read the bit about Laila's second delivery....a C-section without anasthesia.... freak..and Mariam just marvels at that woman's strength.... looking at how long it took for Laila for the first scream...!! Seriously.... no one can take pain like a woman does... and that too... so effortlessly... so non chalantly..! Ok, I won't spoil the read for you.. go read it.. its not woth a miss..!

Chalo... I'll get back to wikipediaing.... about cloning and stem cell research.... can someone please give me a Biotech crash course this weekend?!?! Need it for the PI...! Till next time... tchao..!

February 4, 2009

Buh-Bye....Till May (hopefully I stay outta blogspot till then!)

OK.. I'm back again.... only to say goodbye again...!! Well, too much to do .... very less time. Got my prelims beginning next week.... CET in the middle of prelims.... NMIMS GD-PI after that.... which means that the preparation should be done right now...! And the best part of it all... My University exams from April... practicals in March... and I'm still xeroxing notes... simply put... I still haven't started studying...I just wish that I get up one day without the question " Which notes do I have to xerox today?". Life couldn't get worse.... And sprinkle a heartbreak on that.... and trust me... Life, seriously couldn't be meaner to you. Already in shit...and Life's continuing putting more shit on me...! And it's not exactly a Slumdog moment too..!

About TY.. well, I've finally started studying.... hopefully I should be able to finish it before the exam ends...! About my prelims... I dunno if I'd be able to give it... I've injured my right thumb.... And I need some recuperating time for CET... gotta solve 200 goddamned questions in 150 minutes! So, hope I get well soon before Monday...wanna give the prelims.. I've given up my 'giving up' habits!

Finally got one 'call' this year... from NMIMS...in a place where there's reservation for me... yay!! I feel like dancing in joy but then the thought of GD sucks out all the happiness outta me...! Kinda confident about PI.... because everyone gets screwed there.... you get in by how relative your 'screwing' was compared to others.... and at least I'm sure I can answer one question....'What's the meaning of your name'. Thinking of doing a ' I don't know' for all questions related to Biotech, Economics, Why-MBA types..!!! I know... there's no hope for me!!

There's no hope for me any which ways. I just realised that no guy wants to make me his girlfriend.... and no guy wants me to tie him a rakhi as well!!! So...no boyfriend and no brother...!So,basically no one to keep a hand on my head and convincingly say 'It's gonna be okay. I'm there' !! What a life! Everything I'm doing these days is turning out to be wrong...especially things done on conferences... I've begun to hate them! Was on a IM conference with a guy friend and a female friend.... the female friend was trying to set me up with the guy friend (she's just taking my "I'm so exasperated with studies and exams that I'm getting married in May, provided I get a dulha" statement rather seriously!) and that guy thinks that I was setting him up with my friend...!! I'm getting married only in 2050 if things like these continue!!

I don't really agree with people when they say that a girl and a guy can never be JUST friends... they can be. But this statement comes with a conditions apply asterisk!! One that states.... a girl and a guy can be JUST friends.... provided they are in love with other people!!! Maybe I can make a movie on this and sell it to K-Jo and probably become a millionaire before I turn 21... and then maybe I can bring in my 21st birthday in Las Vegas... and shove my age proof up their asses!! Yay!! Wishful thinking.... my favourite hobby!!

Err... I just happened to catch a glimpse of the clock ticking away as if she's gotta meet her boyfriend in some time... that's why she's ticking away like there's no tomorrow... (consciously made the my clock a girl.... for obvious reasons...didn't get it..?? Arey baba... guys are never anxiously waiting for girls na!)... so, like always, I killed the essence of the joke by explaining it... my point was that it's too late ....I gotta go and start with Paper I Unit II... or Paper III Unit IV... or well... 4 papers....4 units each... so 4p4 ways of selecting what to study... wow! Fine... I'm going to study and I'll stop irritating you further... so... see you sometime in May... don't really think I'll come before that... maybe I'll just drop in once to say how disastrous my GD was and how well I got screwed in my PI...! Till then... bye... adios... tata...alvida...Astala Vista... Sayonara...tchao.. ok... there are 6912 languages in the world... and I can't say BYE in all of them... so get back to your work...and wish me luck!!

P.S: This season... try not falling in love!! (F**k, I can foresee Hallmark and Hershey's people vandalising my house for this...V-Day coming up... no! I've got CET the next day... but doesn't matter... no date!!!)

P.S2: Listen to "Yeh Zindagi Bhi" from Luck By Chance....trust me this song gives you the chills!! Listen to it after your dreams are broken... for added pain if you're one of the self-sadist people!
