I'm kinda back!

OMG! I haven't blogged since so long! I actually have forgotten blogging now! I can see so many people heave a sigh of relief, reading this! So, where do I start....umm I don't know! I just suddenly had this feeling that I'm neglecting my baby(my blog, you sillies), so I'm here trying to type whatever gibberish hits my neurons. If you have topic suggestions, kindly pass them on!

I think that they should rename MBA to 'self-actualization' ! I never knew so much about me before I started my MBA! Yeah, the classic question of 'Why MBA' and 'Tell me something about yourself' still haunts even after getting into MBA! We had a lecture and all the professor made us do was write 3 drafts on the latter question! And, while I was writing, I kinda had that 'dimaag ki batti jali' moment.....there are soooooo many things about us, which we don't know! And we never really bothered finding out. And I'm loving this self-actualization journey. It's this time when you realise that your strengths have been your weaknesses and your weaknesses have been your real strengths! I'm not making sense...... welcome to the MBA club.... hardly anything makes sense here!

As usual, Aanchal is right! She always says that things happen in her life first, and then after a lag, the same things happen in my life! And still, I'm unprepared for life! Her B-school began before mine, and she always said that these 24-year-old oldies speak more sense than we do! And, I refuted the claim by saying that we, too, have seen a lot of life to speak sense! Now, when I have a friend who's from the same league.....not the 24 year old oldies league....but the 22 year olds' league, I realise, that really, these oldies, actually speak sense!! They really, have profound thoughts!! I still remember gazing with my mouth wide open listening to my friend tell me things about me, which I also didn't know, and he noticed in me in just a day! How many of you (my friends, and people who've been reading my blog since long to know me kinda well) knew that I was a perfectionist!?? I didn't know that about me, trust me! My best friend of six years, Radhika, admitted that she didn't know this about me as well!

Now, after a long hiatus of around 4 years, I'm back to my oldest old self! I've changed so many times since school got over that I don't know who's the real me! Yeah, so I think I've gone back to school self. I've started shouting left right center at people who piss me off. No longer am I the let-it-be-na-chod-na-re person I had become since 4 years. If someone's doing something wrong, they better be prepared to take it from me! I actually shouted at a class of 120 for passing cheap comments and distracting my group during our presentation. And, boy! that felt good! And, now after a month in college, I've begun to feel that I need anger management classes soon before I break someone's skull in college! Anyways, managers ought to have a calm head! My degree college friends are sure wondering how I'd look shouting at people...or rather they are wondering if I'm bluffing again!

It's just so wonderful how I can write so much shit even when I have nothing to write about!! I'll end this post here. Hopefully I'll come back soon with something that'll remind you of my old self.....something that looks like my blog posts of yore, which were not this shitty!!!

P.S : Thought for the day: Life always gives you options..... it's for you to take them or leave them!

Nupur Bhayani,

One of the things these work ex people teach to sign mails!!!

Chivalry's Dead.... Oh just got CPR!

Just when I'm praising people to the skies, people have to act like an ass!! After getting completely pissed off with 2 guys from my team at college, I was singing praises of Ajay, Ankit , Abhishek and Rao, because they are really one-of-a-kind type of guys! And, then, Ajay has to act like an ass!! After promising a free movie treat, I was made to pay for the movie myself, and that too, a movie I've previously seen and spent 160 bucks for!! So, I've made the producers of Kaminey richer by 200 bucks now. Ok, now, I'll give it to the guy.... he paid for all the rickshaw and food....and then went broke paying for the movie! But, Ajay, dude, your treat is still pending. Bloody, you toh have a job also now!
Yeah, like I was saying, now it's confirmed that the guys I mentioned earlier are really the last specimens of a speices! They never abused in Hindi in front of girls, did all the work we gave them, they let us expolit them, manhandle them yet never complained, they would've rather come under the train than make a girl stand and sit themselves! But the guys I'm meeting off late (just 2 out of the entire college, though!) are all these weren't! I was totally exhausted after standing continously from 8 am to 7 pm on the day of our project presentation, and finally got a chair to sit, and no sooner did I sit, than there was this jerk, who asked me to get up so that he could sit! I got up... but in shock!!! I mean ...chivalry is DEAD! And today when I was with Ajay in the bus....not only did he make sure that I sit first....but made sure that all the females get a place to sit in the bus before he does! (OK, he was trying to impress one of females he offered a seat because she was a lil hot!). Even Ankit... give him any work to do...and all he'll say is, 'Yes, Dear!' Rao readily pays for three, my friend and himself! Only because my friend insits that I come in a package deal with her! And Abhishek.....well... he's the man you should contact when you want to cross the road! He'll hold your hand and make sure no one comes in your way when you cross the road! Where art guys like thee?? And the most important thing....they DON'T SMOKE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

They say, there's no place like home. And they aren't wrong! I, now realise how much I miss Mithibai....and why I'd prefer to eat in the Mithibai canteen rather than McD or anyother better looking restaurant, only because Mithibai feels like home. And, yes, I never thought I'd ever be saying this in my life....but I'm missing the Mithibai Gujjus.... bigtime!! Eating in the canteen today, I couldn't just laugh at all the free meals we've had from canteen in the name of our department fest...and how we made Mr. Yes Dear, Ankit sanction all those food bills! Like I said, I've exploited the guys in my life! Now, it all comes back. There was only Ajay, Mansi and me in the canteen.... Ankit, Aanchal,Ankita, Lucky, Manshi, Hetu, Fatty, Neha....all absent....and without them, we didn't even feel like attacking the food and finishing it off in 6.78 secs! People are right when they say the one matures after graduating. I miss the stupid, kiddish fun! I miss eating. People, I've gone back to my I-don't-eat-this-and-that days!!! Just the other day, I was coming home from college (which is at Carter Rd, a place where all of us used to hang out after bunking tests and pracs) and was pointing out all the places where I used to eat out and all the speciality restaurants to this other friend in the rick with me, and I couldn't help but smile....I was this person who had a more items in the not-to-eat foods than in the to-eat-list, and here I was, suggesting the best places to eat to someone!

And yeah, I noticed one more thing.... you can't beat a Gujju, when he comes to spending money!!!!! I've learnt this from SVKM (it's the trust that runs Mithibai). I'm not saying that my MBA college is in a dilapidated state, it's great....fatang actually....but when you've seen Mithibai 3rd floor onwards, nothing else will do!

P.S: Ajay...... dude, your black convertible BMW as a gift for my wedding is still on....! And because you've made me spend money on Kaminey today, you'll have to give me a Toyota Camry also alongwith the start working hard and earn money!!! And, Abhishek..... praan jaye par vachan na jaye....right, so in the same Rajput promise my silver Audi !! Any more contributions from my readers, fans, stalkers, lovers (urggh! none in the last group!), you send send me sedans too ....I don't have anyone giving me Porche, Bentley, Lambhorghini and Ferrari....but keep in mind that I prefer only black and silver colors!

P.S 2 :If these four are the last guys of a kind on Earth and I meet no one like them, I'm gonna keep the brotherly feelings I have for them aside and marry one of them!

P.S 3: Right after that jerk made me get up from my chair, there was another guy who offered to look for another chair for me...despite having stood for the same number of chivalry just got a CPR!

P.S 4 :It's now confirmed that my iPod has an emo sensor on it.... it's playing I miss my college days right now!!!! Darn!!

Why I'm Still Single!!!!

Reasons why I'm still single
  1. I don't wear salwar kameezes normally. So nothing like my dupatta falling on the face of the prospective boyfriend and then it sliding away slowly while he's still taking in my perfume, totally mesmerised by me.... err no, mesmerised more by the dupatta, doesn't happen!!! And, there's no slow background score playing too.
  2. Again, no chances of the dupatta getting tangled in his chain or anything else are nil! So no moments of looking-into-each-other's-eyes-while-music-plays-in-the-background.
  3. I don't wear I don't fall while walking with a lot of files with un-filed papers in them (which are almost always blank!),which would all fly in the air and then settle down due to gravity after taking their own sweet time after I fall, so again, there are no falling-and-he-coming-to-hold-me-whilst-a-slow-song-plays-in-the-background happens!!
  4. I'm always the most inconspicuous person at a wedding(still, my duur ke rishtedaar aunts are successful in locating me and bombard me with inane questions and rishtas!), so no Salman-Madhuri moment happening too in my life, pretty much because I'm too lazy to either get involved in the juta churaoing thing or to lazy to flirt with the dulha's friends/brothers!
  5. I can't get a plastic surgery done on my face which would: increase my height, increase my weight, make my voice more mellifluous isn't possible!!!
  6. Due to the fact that till now my college was just a few blocks away from my house, I never really needed to travel in a car. So, I'd have to turn down any 'do-you-want-a-lift-home' offers from prospective boyfriends, which had I accepted, would definitely lead to a road in the middle of a jungle, where there's been no civilization since the dinosaurs, in the middle of the night and suddenly the car would break down, it would get stormy and start raining, the cell phone networks would go off too, and he and I'd be forced to camp in the jungle around a bonfire, eating fruits, me wearing his jacket to protect myself from rain and cold, and then there'll be a slow song playing in the background and we'd look into each other's eyes and realise the love we have for each other!!!
  7. I don't cook, so no chances of us atta-kneading together in a very desi lift off from the Ghost!!!
  8. I'm almost always on time I'm never missing trains!! So, no chances of meeting a rich industrialist on the way of our catching up the missed train who'd make sure I reach home safely after I miss my train because of him (Damn! I almost missed my flight from Washington to Mumbai 2 years back!! Shit, had Jab We Met released by then, I'd have not made the efforts to run for 20 minutes like a crazy woman at the Washington airport to catch my plane!)
  9. No goondas ever chedo me when I'm with a no action scene where I'd go all spiderman, spiderman, here comes the spiderman in awe!!
  10. (* Warning: Twilight special!*) And finally, the killer-est of all ideas. Literally! Because, 1) it's never cloudy all year round, 2)leave alone having rains all year round, we don't even have rains in the rainy season here, 3) the vast human population to tempt them, 4) the lack of widlife nearby, 5) it's so freaking sunny everyday , here, in Mumbai, that there are no chances of vampires being able to thrive here! So, here goes my chances of falling in love with a vegetarian vampire like Edward Cullen! And, because there are no vampires, there are no were-wolves to protect everyone from here goes another consolation prize chance of hooking up with someone like Jacob Black. Just imagine, having 2 guys, one Edward and other Jacob first fighting each other for you and then fighting everyone else for must really be a lucky b***h!!!

P.S: This post comes out in frustration of
  1. Watching soaps right from Dill Mil Gaye, Miley Jab Hum Tum and the likes for over 6 months! (that's where the songs-playing-in-the-background idea comes from!)
  2. Writing a Shakespearean tragedy in Elizabethan english for 14 hours and then, my team-mates asking me to put some comic relief in the play because it's way too serious!!! What do I tell such people?!?
