Conteplatative thoughts...

I have realised that when I try really hard.. nothing seems to come off from it.
But when I give up all the trying and I couldn't care less, that time everyone seems to suddenly like me... Its not only shocking but recurring..

So, I was wondering.. When we are trying really hard.. Do we give up being "us", and become some other person instead? Some other person who we think would be liked better by everyone?

A new find! :D

Do you know how it feels when you stumble upon an artist playing a soothing a tune.. you google the name.. download a few songs.. and feel your life has been written by someone else in the form lyrics?

Well, this is how I felt when I first Jaymay's song "Sea Green, See blue" on the season finale of How I met your mother (Second season).

An old memoir

Maybe If I had a guitar,

I would have been singing a song.

I took a step forward and drowned my world in a chocolate bar.

But since I can't sing, so I decided to write a poem all night long.

And tell you about all the million ways,

You left me morosely alone.

I raise the white flag in defeat, console myself and say "Misery pays"

I tried to cry but the tears won't come, so instead I just gave into a groan.

Trial and error is not the design.

Relationships don't need to have a pattern.

They are just supposed to be filled in with sunshine.

You go along the path and you fall and you learn.

Who doesn't go through bad times and gloom?

But I will always remember you for something, blessed or cursed.

Coz you will be the only person with whom,

I would share many phrases starting with the word - "First."

I tried to guess the tint,

But maybe I never looked into your eyes.

Whisky and soda or lemon and mint?

I should have held your hands and stared into them before the goodbyes.

I felt like hiding in a room,

Dark and musty and crumbling,

When I first thought of how I would resume.

Two months down and you think of coming back, stumbling.

I was never sure but sometimes I thought you took pity.

I still have that red rose,

and those memories 30 kilometers away from the city.

Tell me something, When I stuck up my bull nose

Did it make you also feel so giddy?

It was all so clear,

too simple from the start.

We tried to hard, dear.

I guess we were meant to part.

But After 5 months of trying,

Maybe you became one of my addictions.

Coz whenever we were away, I'd spend my time just lying.

I always believed in horoscope predictions.

The rights, the wrongs , the time spent in judgement.

The future , Our lives, The careers , The flow

We confined ourselves to some metaphoric parchment.

Through all those times, We should have remembered what we let go.

I wish I had some more time to be nice to you.

Some more time to tell you about,

all the wonderful things that you do.

I wish I had a photo of the day you took me out.

Subway and McDonald's coke thrown on the road,

Honey, I swear when I'm in front of you ,

My heart comes to my throat.

Can I still have that shirt stripped in blue?

Do these all seem like random pen actions

Thrown in with a rhyming scheme?

I know I'll be successful in writing poem if it provokes a reaction.

So tell me, What do I get? - A tear , a smile or A big beam?

I know. I know. I'm Sorry!!!

Hey-low, folks!
So I have been busy and sick.. and I know I haven't posted anything in a week!!! I'm so sorry!

Anyways , the recent book on my bookshelf is Julie and Julia by Julie Powell..
Even though I am a BIG CULINARY FAN and my TV schedule consists of cooking shows on the travel channel and some desperate house wives/How I met your mother, Julie completely DISAPPOINTED ME!!! The book is boring and dragging and even the rave reviews couldn't keep me going on this one.

She uses big words and complicates what should be written simply. Also, she confuses the reader with past and present and I for one REALLY do not understand all her tantrums in the book. So, at page no 197 I have finally given up reading it!

My friend says the movie is very nice, so I guess for the FIRST TIME ever, Ill keep the book aside and just catch the movie with some buttered pop corn.

And she calls her blog readers "bleaders"!!! Ew!! Don't worry, folks! I'd never put you through SUCH mental torture! That ghastly word just reminds me of blood and guts and earthworms!! Eeeeeewwwwwww!!! I wonder what was so wrong in "Blog readers." Maybe if she took the ending of the first word and the starting of second she would have come up with "Ogre". Ruthless, Ain't it?!

OK, OK, OK. I know I'm rambling now.. But , I cant help it! I'm blogging after AN ENTIRE WEEK!

So take care , Bleaders (Ew.. did I just say that?.. I am soo sorry! Now ill have to sanitize my hands).. I mean.. er.. BLOG READERS!!!

What's the time?

The Deep blue sky
A wall just a few bricks shy
A lonesome math class
The delicate green grass
A sparse wide field
Integration concealed
An out of place brick
A writer critic
A calculus affair
Some warm sun and the air
They are calling me
Like some piping hot mountain tea
On the notebook – A ink spill
The only thing between us – A grill
I put my hands through the hole
A theorem by Rolle
A land of surprises, locked
A tower in the distance, clocked
Regret written all over my face
And the bell rings, finishing this drowsy phase.

I Hate Love storys - A review

The Verdict - ★★★

The Review

CHEESY - This is only word which sums up this entire movie. YET, it’s a cute gooey and crazy kinda cheesy... like a good, well matured gruyere. The protagonist himself reveals the entire story in the starting itself. This is that kind of a movie in which the love stories starts with hatred..turns into friendship... the girl falls in love with the guy.. the guy is the casanova type.. and says "Maine to tumha hamesha ek dost ki nazar se dekha hain".. the girl cries.. moves on.. the guy sees her with another guy.. gets jealous.. realises he really loves her.. proposes.. she cries.. they hug.. THE E.N.D.

This is that kind of a movie and MUCH MORE.
The main character Jay, played by Imraan Khan is just one of those guy friends who you have known your entire life... The kind of friend who has made you laugh when you needed it, the kind who always knew how to get into trouble and out of it... the guy who always got teased for his ever changing taste in the better half of the world. The girl Simran, played by Sonam kapoor is again like the best friend who you almost had. The one who was always perfect and got the most perfect things(Damn, that bedroom made me go weak in the knees) and was yet down to earth and oh-so-nice.

The actors have done a good job. The acting has some pockets of bad emotions but otherwise a good and well layered act. The movie is bright and colourful, punctuated with witty remarks and sarcastic comebacks. The sets are well chosen , the clothes well tailored and the jokes on bollywood well spiced. The music is seasoned enough to go with the temperament of the actors. The script is nothing great, new or refreshing, but what holds the movie together is probably the chemistry of all the actors share.

This is movie is recommended if you have a day off and nothing better to do.. or maybe you would just like to watch a light movie ... or for a dose of laughter.. or for some nice memories with friends?

Just find a damn reason and get to the halls! It’s a must one time watch.

See the movie for - The clothes, the one liners, Imran Khan (sigh) and The beautiful sets
Miss the movie for - The same old and predictable story.

RAIN RAIN, Don't go away!

I just love the entire monsoon weather! Maybe that's because my name means rain...
Or maybe just one of those things in life you really connect to..

I love drinking hot and sour soup.. and rain dancing... and cuddling in a blanket and falling blissfully asleep at odd hours while listening to the rain..


What a feeling of enraptured delight...!!!

Before the rains when the winds are blowing and the clouds are gathering, I close my eyes and wish they don't drift away!

The kids playing on the street... the dogs barking.. the latest gossip being discussed and brewed along with tea and some hot pakoras!!!

I always wondered what I would answer if someone ever asked me about my ideal day..
I guess I know one thing now... That whatever may be the day, if it has the word "rain" it.. thats what will be my ideal day!
