Cricket: Sreesanth Swinging His Bat..... Dhoom Machale?!

Cricket: This is the # 10 batsman Sreesanth, of India, responding to the South African Andre Nel's comment "Man, just don't swing your bat, have a heart to hit the ball", by hitting the very next ball for the maximum six runs and by showing his "heart" in front of Nel's face..... I hope this has made my clip more clear to the non-cricketing public!

Marks dont make a person-- Do they?

It is all over……exams that where haunting me is finally over… now I am a free bird for the next 6 months till the next set of exams that will haunt me……well let me make it clear…..not all exams haunt me… only these particular exams haunt me day and night…..they are my exams to CWA (cost and work accountants)….for the uninitiated (definitely many will be uninitiated ) it is this course which I study along with my bachelors course in commerce for becoming a cost auditor…..similar to an chartered account….the difference is we concentrate on the cost areas, while they concentrate on financial matters…..well all that is fine but the exams aren’t that fine and cool..

Okai, the process to become a cost auditor is that you have to pass one foundation course if you want to do along with your college graduation, and 4 stages with 2 for the intermediate and 2 for final…the course length is if u successfully clear everything is 3 and half years!!......I had very successfully passed my foundation with almost a rank (it was totally unexpected of me!!! )
And I had now appeared for my stage 1 of my intermediary stage…I had to write 4 papers.

The exam started on 26th December…at 9:30 am….my first paper was cost accountancy….it was a nice paper except for one stupid sum in labour , it was all well and good, the next day I had information technology, well it was ok not bad!.....and then I had law on 28th even that was king of good……now came the major one today……business taxation’….it was the worst ever paper in my life……… ..I have never in my life performed so badly, I am just every one that I pass with 40%, I am not asking for much……my goodness I never knew until now the importance of each and every mark in the paper…..I was literally scanning the paper to rite for sum 40 marks…..I wonder why I had not cried yet, coz I am a person who will cry if I get below 60%!!.....and now I am praying for a pass….what an irony….. still somehow I only felt sad for me and the examiner who is going to correct my paper…I have developed new provisions for taxation, if they ever put me in the tax department, the government will have to go for a run I guess!

Okai, everybody in my class has already decided to meet in June, that is the next time when you can write the exam again if you flunk in any paper… I got the paper, wrote whatever I knew and didn’t know….finished in 2 hours, the 3 hour paper….okai I did this for all the exams not new for tax alone…..I looked around the room and saw each and every student looking away from the paper every 10 minutes, not that I didn’t do it…..even I was a victim to it….and there was one guy who left in just 15 minutes after receiving the paper…finally I gave the paper came out, one by one all of my friends were like, 100% macha I wont pass….I am gonna rite again, now this discouraged me even more!!! I just came home before anybody can ask me anything! I was studying for these exams like a madwoman till 4 in the morning, then went to sleep at 4 get up at 7:30, get ready in an hour and reach the centre by 9:00…and for this the result I get is one worst paper….

Well I seriously demand people, marks does NOT make a person, it is what you have learnt makes up your personality….but is it true practically in this generation……doest marks count a lot more that what you learn…I tell you I have got an ok knowledge in taxation...but you see tax laws change every assesment year, so u got to be alert....(kill the person who found this system of tax..or better let me kill the person who included it in my cost accountancy course sylabus!!)…..but it did not fetch me marks… ..they say you must be alert to changes in society, bookish knowledge doesn’t help you…but in the end does any organization recruit a person just because he has knowledge….no they recruit because he has the required qualifications and certificates in the competitive world! what makes these certificates – marks ultimately right!!.....when will they change this system in this world….I would be the happiest person in this world….

Well they aren’t gonna change it in my era….so the only thing I can do is pray, pray and pray that I pass in this TAX paper and the least you people can do is pray along with me…as now I cant change anything in the way I wrote the paper now…

Okai people, I can’t go on and on about my worst paper in life…..but what I am scared is I have never ever flunked in anything in my life, now I am dead scared that there are chances of it happening….and I can’t bear it if it happens!!...but still I may be a person writing a blog on ‘first flunk good flunk’!!.. but the damage would have already been made isn’t it…..

So now that the exam I dread is over, you can see Zanychild more active over here in this space …..Till then…..let me sign of for the period…

Santa clause sings for you

Santa Claus singing Jingle Bells.
so there u go.....sing along....jingle bells jingle bells jingle all the way!! and a MERRY CHRISTMAS!! from me

Dashing through the snow
On a one-horse open sleigh,
Over the fields we go,
Laughing all the way;
Bells on bob-tail ring,
making spirits bright,
What fun it is to ride and sing
A sleighing song tonight

Jingle bells, jingle bells,
jingle all the way!
O what fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh

A day or two ago,
I thought I'd take a ride,
And soon Miss Fanny Bright
Was seated by my side;
The horse was lean and lank;
Misfortune seemed his lot;
He got into a drifted bank,
And we, we got up sot.

Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells,
Jingle all the way!
What fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh.

A day or two ago,
the story I must tell
I went out on the snow
And on my back I fell;
A gent was riding by
In a one-horse open sleigh,
He laughed as there
I sprawling lie,
But quickly drove away.

Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells,
Jingle all the way!
What fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh.

Now the ground is white
Go it while you're young,
Take the girls tonight
And sing this sleighing song;
Just get a bob-tailed bay
two-forty as his speed
Hitch him to an open sleigh
And crack! you'll take the lead.

Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells,
Jingle all the way!
What fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh.

Gifted & Talented

Individuals in this world are talented in one way or the other. It is up to the parents to find the talents of their child….my mom did the same thing, she tried pretty hard to find my talents, and let’s take a ride down my memory lane to find how much she had succeeded.

In my kinder garden classes we used to have ‘CUB’ classes for creative work, me and my cousin were in the same we used to smear paint on each other…this gave the wrong idea to my mom that I love to paint apparently. So there started my drawing and painting classes, and well I have done fairly well in it, that I do oils….but you know I dont really have a passion for it….but I just do it.

Then in one of our annual days my teacher made me appear as a swimming champ, this gave the next idea to my mom…so here I go to a row of swimming classes….but swimming never comes easily to me…..I ended up only to the extent of walking in water!!....maybe I will swim one day when I am strangled in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, it will come just like that to me..

Then was my brush with music. My mom wanted me to be a carnatic singer (thank god I did not become one!!) but I said ‘’….I cant do all that ‘aa….aa…aaah..’, so she enrolled me in keyboard classes. First was with western music…but that wasn’t my cup of tea…I learnt it from two teachers..the first one couldn’t bear with me and taught me only nursery rhymes….the second teacher lost hope in me that I could never get the ‘c’s and g’s right!! then I went into classical music in keyboard…

This was even funny than western music…..because I learnt this classical music from 4 teachers…people I tell you teachers, and at all 4 places…I started right from the scratch…that is the basics and did till the lesson that I left with my first classical teacher…that is I never proceed beyond 2 stages of the classical music in all 4 places…..when I go to the next teacher, they ask me to play what I mind goes blank, and they tell me that we will start from the first!!...whew….so that is how my keyboard lessons went, which were saturated after a point.
So what can I say my talent as….I never did anything can I say I am very talented at trying my hand at everything but never fully completing it or learning it…now that is definitely a great talent people…I can call myself….an amateur jack or should I say Jill in all trades!!.....

Weirdo land is my country.
All weirdos are my brothers and sisters.
I love my country and I am proud of its weird and crazy people.
I promise to make my country crazy with my crazy and zany ideas and strive to drive all people in it insane.
I vow that I will abide by the crazy and zany laws.
And not in one moment will I try to be normal in my life.
Abnormality will be my last breath.
I pray that people around me turn crazy and weird and hail in the light of zaniness.
I vow that I will be a patriotic citizen of this land and never in my life will enter the sane world.

Ok…people…now please for heavens sake do not jump into conclusions!!....I mean those conclusions that would normally rise under the given circumstances, after my last blog!! goodness… wat is this ‘his rotis and my subji’……well this is one funny conversation….i hope it takes you on a ride!!..and I warn you the below blog is true..with some additions here and there by me!!

I am currently in my semester holidays….you might have guessed it by the number of posts I am posting these days….my first day of holiday dawned……after the usual chores, at around midday I sat before the computer….nothing unusual…..the same me…jobless as always….will do blogging or orkutting…..much of the second I guess!! I logged into orkut to check my scraps….there were quite a lot….after replying to them…I saw ‘spammer’ online…..

Again people please do not jump into conclusions…this is a fellow orkutter in my list….my friends friend…who became my friend through orkut…….he is named ‘weirbrew spammer’….in short spammer or spammi…..he dropped a ‘hi zany’ scrap….I replied….he asked where my friends was…..and the usual conversation I was having with him…..he then scrapped
Spammi: ‘my folks aren’t home…so I gotta wash the dishes, and prepare my dinner’…..
Zany: ‘oh gud work’…
Spammi: ‘is it a gud work….I have got to make the dough in the evening and make rotis’….
Zany: ‘yeah that’s what….isnt that cool…..thank god only you are going to eat those rotis!!’….
Spammi: ’yeah zany, I make better rotis!!’….
Zany: ’yeah, you are the judge, so you will say it is good!!’….
Spammi: ‘nope my cousin tried those rotis , she said it was nice!!’
Zany: ‘yeah. You might have influenced her!!’
Spammi: ‘actually she herself is not a better cook..she was supposed to cook for she had some work, I made the rotis!!’
Zany: ‘didn’t I tell you?’
Spammi: ‘as if you are helping your mom in the kitchen!!’
Zany: ‘who said I don’t….I make awesome subjis at times…it comes out amazingly well’
Spammi: ‘all the left overs will go into your subji’
Zany: ‘….I will not tell you my secret ingredient!!’
Spammi: ‘I know your secret ingredient’
Zany: ‘No, the left overs do not go into the subji! 1…and what is my secret ingredient?’
Spammi: ‘I mentioned it…leftovers!!’
Zany: ‘noo’
Spammi: ‘zany, you always deny facts, what kind of a CHARACTER you are?’
Zany: ‘I know I am one character in this world…and hey thanks I got the spelling of character right!!’
Spammi: ‘what do you always get the spelling wrong?? I will accept that you help in the kitchen, only when your mom agrees to it and gives her consent to it!!’
Zany: ‘LOL….now what proof do I have about how good were your rotis?’
Spammi: ‘what do you want them to send it through mail??’
Zany: ‘I can send the mail from my can send the rotis through snail mail!!’
Spami: ‘maybe I can scan the rotis…but you subji!!…your scanner will become oily!!’
Zany: ‘scanning subji..never!1..lolz…ok..weirdo time for me to go….I betta go…and may you have a great dinner with YOUR ROTIS’
Spammi: ‘yeah…bye zany..i will have a great dinner with my ROTIS’!!
Zany: ‘and do mail me abt the dinner!!’

Next day

I go online….spammi is online….
Zany: ‘hey’
Spammi: ‘hey’
Zany: ‘how was your dinner?’
Spammi: ‘well my aunt asked me to come over to her place!! I did not make the rotis!!
Zany: ‘whew..what a nice aunt..see, she took pity on your cooking’
Spammi: ‘but this morning I made parathas..they came wonderfully well!!’
Zany: *speechless* ‘ is you who is judging your own cooking skills……’

And the argument starts over….and previous day history repeats again!!

Men never give up do they..well so do women!!
People…all I am trying to say is..i am one weirdo…so is this guy….and well…..maybe his rotis and my subji would make an awesome combination….or they might become a total flop..who knows….I just pity those pour souls who are going to eat spammi’s rotis…I know he is also pitying right now, as to the people who are going to eat my subji!!

LOVE - An Aura of Mystery!!!

I have never been in love all my life….may be it will happen in the future……the future alone will answer my question as to whether love will bloom in my heart…….what ever crap…..I am not desperate to fall in love….it can all happen in its own sweet time…..then I know you are wondering why I am talking about this topic in the first place!!...well there are plenty of reasons as to the question ‘WHY??’

Many of my friends in a relationship, and many who have lost their heart to someone….but that someone doesn’t even know that this person exists….are in a mystical world always!!....they are preoccupied with their own thoughts that they do not know that others exist around them!! times they get really depressed to the extent that they just take the peace of mind of others as well as themselves. I really want to tell you people about some of my friends, the way they ramble their thoughts to me, when in trouble in relationships…..I just do not know still whether to laugh or cry when someone calls me and tells me…”what do I do now Vidya?..He or she is not talking to me!!”…may I warn you people, that I am the wrong person for relationship advice and stuff!!..coz, I have never been in one, and I still do not understand what is lacking in you if the other person doesn’t respond to your feelings!!.....if he or she doesn’t talk, just forget it, and proceed with your life…..nothings going to change by fretting over the ‘silent treatment’….fretting over it actually makes it worse!...if you do not fret, there is a likely chance that the person may consider responding to your feelings… you get what I am trying to say??....yes I know, it is always like this soo complicated!! But isn’t life complicated?

I still don’t get it how you can give your life for somebody else!! is your life for heavens sake…you have to live for yourself and not for others in your life!... I am not saying that you mustn’t sacrifice for that special someone in your life, but everything has its own limits and boundaries…you will have to reserve some part and space in your life exclusively for yourself….an idiotic, rather funny thought crossed my mind…..just with two genders, there is all this commotion and explosion between them from the time of Adam and eve….and battle of sexes, chauvinistic approaches, attracting the opposite sex, ego problems, attitude problems…...wonder what the world would have become if we had more than two genders!!.....lolz…... (Don’t worry people, I am in my senses…..only in my senses do I get all these weird thoughts!!)

If you are in love with someone, just come clear with your feelings to that someone…..I know it may be hard, you might have been good friends and may worry that your feelings will affect your friendship, at times that someone might stop talking to you when you express your feelings loud and clear…but the consequences of expressing the feelings is much less than the weight of bearing this unexpressed feelings in your heart…..remember its one life that you live, live it with the person you want to!! is of no use, if you are scared of the consequences so you keep dumb about your feelings...and in the end start your life with some other person who you barely know……result your love is buried deep under the ground, you are not honest to the person with whom you are starting your life with…and worse, that special someone might have also had feelings for you!!..

Ok…now you have come clear with your feelings, there is only two ways here….either your feelings are accepted or rejected….it is all fine and well and cool, if it is accepted….if you are rejected, nothing to worry, you may boldly go ahead start a new life, you will have the satisfaction of having tried to win the heart of the special person, but it went in vain, the burden will no longer be in your heart, except a tinge of sadness… will be free of the love web, there will be better fishes to fry….and all you can console yourself is that special person who rejected you doesn’t deserve your feelings, forget that person as a bad dream and start afresh in your new life….that is the secret mantra!!

Whew….I am wondering what got into me….definitely not the love bug….lolz….still I wonder why life is so much complicated?.....even if there are ways to live life simply, in the end we tend to make it complicated!!

I know my friends will laugh at me if they read this blog!!.....coz they say it is really funny and they can’t stop laughing if I become philosophical or thoughtful!!.....I know guys; I will be zany as always and unpredictable!!

Complete chaos!!

I hereby warn that the below article is purely not fictional and did happen very effortlessly in my life…any resemblance to any character or incidents is not purely a coincidence!!...and if the below test paper reaches any professor teaching indirect tax…..I pity your plight of reading the paper!!

So what exactly was the chaos?? was my mock test in my CWA course……I already had omitted half the portions from being read due to the following reasons:

• my college semester just got over
• I was not in a mood to study anything hard
• I LUV the indirect tax subject… do not know the limits of my love to this subject… is so much that I never attend the classes!!
• I do not have the indirect tax material, as I have lost the due slip paper of the institute, and not in a mood to get the duplicate and get my book….and my friends say the book isn’t worth buying!!
• I did not or was not in the mood to get the suggested books from outside..
• I do not attend classes….which means I do not have running notes…and I literally begged this ashish guy in my class and got his note book completely Xeroxed!!

So I had kinda prepared half the portions for the test…the test was on ‘Central Excise Act, 1944’...and I had prepared to write the test for the satisfaction of my professor in the institute….because he is suddenly nice to me and Christina saying that we both are very regular to class and stuff, when the truth is we never properly attend classes!! I took the courage to write the test…I received the test paper…..praying that I shud get what I had studied!!...that is just the first few chapters of the Act! I took the question paper….blinked twice!!.....couldn’t make head or tail of what was asked…the paper was concentrated more on the area that I had not studied!!

The following is the specimen of the test paper that I submitted!!

R.R.Academy (Unit Test Series)
ICWA – II Indirect Taxes – Excise act

1. Distinguish between self- assessment and provisional- assessment under excise act?

Ans: self assessment: it is the assessment by self of the manufacturer; he assesses the assessable value and excise duty on his goods. He is able to decide the rate of duty
Provisional assessment: it is not self assessment, it is provisionally assessed. The manufacturer cannot assess the value of the goods due to non-availability of certain documents; he is not able to assess the rate of duty. This is done periodically
(I wrote with the assumption of the meaning of self and assessment, and kinda rounded the answer with the same words in the question!!)

2. Write a note on:
a. Special audit can be ordered under section 14-A of excise act
b. Deemed manufacture
c. Taxable event in the central excise act
d. Distinction between levy and collection

a. If an auditor finds any defect in the documents, or finds that any information relating to the product has not been disclosed, then he can order special audit to be done in the factory, the special audit is done by auditors mostly appointed by the government. (I pray that this answer should be correct, as I agree that I have not seen these words in any material, and used my own creativity to write the answer)
b. Manufacture means when by adding inputs together we get a completely new output different from the input and it is accepted as a product by customers, whereas deemed manufacture is when the manufacture of a product does not fully result in new product, but it is accepted by customers as a new product (now does that make sense!!)
c. Taxable event means the production or manufacture of excisable goods in India. When goods are manufactured in India then they are capable of being levied an excise duty (whew, I know this answer!!!...yippeeee)
d. Levy means the imposition of tax on goods, while collection is collecting the levied tax (now what is supposed to be the distinction between levy and collection I wonder??!!!)

3. State the procedure to be followed in appointing an auditor leading to the submission of audit report under section 14 A under central excise act?

Ans: (who knows???....I never touched this chapter!!)

4. Explain the provisions relating to valuation of goods to be sold through depots or godowns under excise act??

Ans: The following valuation rules are applicable:

Rule 4: The prices of excisable goods are the price of such goods subject to any adjustment at the time of removal
Rule 5: The transaction value is determined at the place of removal, if the place of delivery is different from the place of removal than the actual cost of transportation is deductable.
Rule 6: If price is not the sole consideration, then any other consideration like cash and kind is includable.
Rule 7: If the goods are removed from some other place of removal, the excise duty is calculated at the price prevailing at that place of removal.
(Instruction supposed to be known by the examiner….do not blink where depots and godowns come in this answer….they are very much connected to the above rules….It is your brilliance to include the words godowns and depots wherever appropriate!! cannot expect the student to write everything!!)

5. What is personal ledger account and discuss its accounting treatment?

Ans: (well… it about my personal account and treatment. I do not have a personal account…even if I have, it will definitely be overdrawn!!)

6. Discuss whether the following expenses form a part of assessable value under excise act and why:
a. advertisement expenses incurred by the buyer or dealer
b. depot or godown expenses
c. after sales services during warranty period
d. interest in security deposit advance

a. It is not includable because it is not incurred by the manufacturer.
b. It is includable, because it is the place of removal, and incurred by the manufacturer
c. It is not includable, because the excise duty is already calculated at the time of sale
d. It is includable, because….. (So says my fellow classmates…..I still do not know why…I thought it was includable!!!)

With that the paper was over….I neatly folded it, wrote my name in BLOCK letters and submitted it and rushed back home!!

A note to readers: the statements mentioned in the brackets were not a part of my test paper!!...those were my random thoughts at the time of my exam!! people do bless me that I will do amazingly well in my main exams this December, and be more serious than this, and actually study hard to at least pass the paper…I do not know where I am still standing in this long road up my career!!

ACCIDENTS are part of life!!!

I gotta blog this!!!....the most memorable incident in my life that happened recently……well that incident is an accident….I am an average bike rider I must say [chitra will probably accept after my ‘U’ turn license test ;)]… what happened!!..
Read on…..
Hmmm……I was returning from college after my exam back home… thoughts were wandering as to how amazing my exam was and the great lunch I had in the canteen with archana!!!..lolz…I know I think of nothing but you know…my studies and blogs and FOOD!!!!

Well I was all fine till I reached the road to my was an intersection of four roads and I was going straight and this moddle aged guy came in the bike in my right to left direction..i saw him and so did he…..I thought as he had seen me he wouldn’t cross….and I don’t know wat he thought…he crossed…..I applied my full brakes..still my pep did not fully stop..when it was about to stop my front wheels hit his back wheels in the side ways…..and *thud* I fell flat on my face..okai not flat on my face coz…I was wearing the protective gear…my power helmet!! I can say I fell flat on my helmet……I knew I was going to fall…it was like a slow motion film….I was falling falling…but I couldn’t stop myself!!!...I fell on the right…my pep flew to the left….that guy did not fall….maybe he jerked..and he went and stopped the bike…..a crowd formed!!!....I got up…they pulled my bike up….and asked me to rest!! guy in the crowd shouted at the bike guy as it was his fault!!...and that bike guy got really angry…and there was this huge fight between them…the bike guy was asking me why my breaks weren’t working…they were perfectly alright!!!....I knew they were alright!!!.......and then the bike guy got soo frustrated…and he said he is going to complain to 106….and guys he did complain..and he is telling me he registered the case and gave me my bike number. And his too I guess, and told the 106 guy that he did not know whose fault it was….and they were supposed to find whose fault it was….and then he told me..why did not I stop the public from threatening him…..I was like….hello I don’t even know the people…and I told him I did not know whose fault it was….so how could I say anything???...and the crowd made me call my mom…and I created ripples of fear for my mom..who came to find me… the time which I had reached home!!!.......nobody from 106 came….so no one at spot..i guess the case will not be valid…lets wait and see what happens!!!

And what did I sustain from the accident….a few scratches here and there in my right leg…I did not see it bleeding when I fell…I was too busy watching the fight between the crowd and the bike guy!!! was far more exciting then my bleeding ;)……but victory was…that bike guy says I crashed his indicator………isn’t it…..revenge for the scratches I sustained….but the truth is I couldn’t find anything broken in his indicator……and he claims I had..and it costs him a mighty 40 rs….lolz…and he is saying I did not even claim that from you…all I wanted was justice he said….justice!!!....I wonder still whose mistake it was……then how could I give him justice for what happened???

So atlast I somehow drove my vehicle and reached home…to find it locked coz…my mom has gone in search for me…..I was way too excited with my little accident adventure….that I was calling all my super friends one after the other…only to find that they weren’t available….at last archana was available..i told her my super adventure….she was like are you alrite??....anything happened???.....lolz……others are too concerned about me than myself!!......and then came home my mom…and once again I narrated the whole incident….she then went to get the ever famous ‘tinchure’ for me to apply on the scratches…

So what have I learned from my first hand experience of an ACCIDENT:

~ wearing helmet is a must….otherwise you will fall flat in your face and break your nose or something like that!!

~ Always go in a moderated speed at crossings and intersection

~ Never try to stop falling once you fall….coz that is even more difficult than falling

~ try to be conscious, coz you will miss the popularity in the crowd forming….and their support if you have…..and their fight for justice!!

~ If you are one of the female species in the world…do not worry…it is you who will get the support even if it was your mistake ;)

~ Always be neutral on the issue….do not let the opposite party know that it was your fault or their fault

~ carry all essential documents for the vehicle or else it is in the danger of being seized…..I myself was very doubtful if I had my license…thank god no one asked me….and I had lost my RC book too….or should I say my brother lost it!! might not be as lucky as me!!

~ If you have sustained injury….see that the opposite party gets an equivalent damage like how I am supposed to have smashed his indicator according to him ;)

On the whole….just enjoy the experience…..coz…you may not face many accidents in your life!!!

Yippe….can u hear the non stop sound of crackers bursting? it deafening your ears……is the night a delight to your eyes…with all the rockets and crackers lighting up the sky so beautifully… see spontaneous twinkling little stars in the sky that glimmer and fade in an instant…well welcome to the festival of lights. Sound, and more action…..the biggest festival of the sub continent…..nonetheless it is diwali….deepavali….deepathinvali……..the paw vali!!..lolz….okai for the uninitiated vali means pain in tamil!!

So finally a day for celebration is here…all the houses are filled with delicious aroma of the sweets in making..few days before diwali…and everyone eagerly waits for sampling it!!..yummy!!....and on the day the sweets are exchanged between the dear and near ones with great enthu!!....come diwali….everyone in my house is whacked to get up early in the morning……take the traditional oil bath which is supposed to be a custom….(so all those heads that did not see oil for the past year….your head is waiting for this day!!;))……and wear there diwali clothes and burst crackers..all that 100, 500, 1000, 2000 wallas….and lakshmi vedi, atom bomb, hydrogen bomb….everything is blasted with no fear….there is a bomb blast taking place in every corner of the street!!..which the police has no authorization to diffuse!!....and everybody at home is dragged to the temple….to visit the lord of all!!...
At the comes across all there relatives…and well you know the usual greetings and stuff..and where did you get your diwali clothes…if it is the ladies of the family..thats it..where did you get this sari?..did you do the embroidery work on it separately?...where did you stich your blouse?.....your sari looks good..does mine look good?...this colour suits you…and the list of things to be asked about a single sari is endless!!....

Outside the temple….watch your steps!!...coz you don’t know what is lying beneath your may be the explosive atom bomb….a tiny 1 strip cracker…and everywhere you will be halted by enthusiastic bursters of crackers…coz they have just lit a cracker before cannot pass that way without the cracker bursting!! There are also instances..when the cracker that has been lit does not burst…and you will be made waiting for a longer time…..patiently!!!...and at last after some 20 minutes or so….the cracker will just go ‘fissssss’…!!

Come evening…..then the whole roads will be filled with the flower pots, and chakras…that just lit the entire place….you get to see wonderful fire fountains and swirls...right before you through these flower pots and chakras!!....and rockets are sent to the sky...they go burst in the sky and lit the sky bright enough….at times they even lit your next door neighbors curtains..Or may even break through there windows…..if such an incident happens…and you gotta escpape..there is just only one way….vanish completely from that place..before your neighbor realizes what you have done ;)….

And what is a festival day without all those special programs on television…all your cable channels will celebrate a diwali among themselves…as to whose programmes should be the best…and the end result...the viewer will have a tough time as to chose what to watch..and if there are kids at home..the remote would have encountered its own diwali…of being the item to fight with….one would want to watch one channel….while the other would wail his/her way to watch another programme at the same time in another channel!! the end with nice bursting…sorry blasting from the parents…nobody will watch TV….and will go out to burst crackers….so all the efforts of the channels to make the viewer watch there programmes goes in vain!!

Anyway….here the day is filled with light sound and action……wish you guys a blasting diwali…..burst all those crackers with the maximum sound…your day is not made if you don’t make at least 1 person deaf ;)….and u must burst crackers and send rockets in such a way that all your neighbors windows are broken ;) it is equivalent to tearing the sky apart with your rockets ;)

Its about the WeiRd me!!!So…this blog is about the weird persona in me….and it is supposed to be a tag..but I don’t have that great many blog friends to we shall jus stop with my tag on the weird me!!

Hmmm……are u guys ready for the tag…

I warn you beforehand after reading this tag … if you change your entire opinion of me from what it is now….I am not solely responsible for it…you have to get your brain cells tested, if need believe the down stated things!

Ok...ok….don’t become tensed up, thought to give some nice build up to start with!!

1. The very weird fact, is this tag…I went and took it myself from marutham’s blog…..the whole tag purpose comes up, when some one tags you…but in my case I got myself tagged!!.....(this is no longer applicable i got tagged ppl!!)

2. I hate shopping, being a girl!!.....I love my comp, my bike, my story books….I also luv gadgets…I always tinker with any new electronic gadget they bring home…and always find the way it operates without reading the instruction manual!! I do not spend time on shopping; getting dresses and stuff…but if u call me for gadget shopping I will definitely come…I am not completely knowledgeable in it…but love to know those stuff!!

3. People usually run away from receiving their test papers…but I just wait for that very moment…I cant express the feeling I would have when I receive my test papers….I am this very impatient person. and when the lecturer is giving the papers in the roll no. order….I would be bugging my friends saying…see I am roll no. 27..there ARE 26 PEOPLE before me….I have to wait sooo long to get my paper!! I would be counting….26 more to go…25 more to go………….20 more to go…..15 more to go…at last is my no…if suppose the papers are given in the random order…even then somehow my paper will not come first…I would be like….what happened….my paper is not there…when still the lecturer will have some 40 papers in hand!!

4. I love accounts and math’s…I need not explain why this is weird…all you math haters will know it…and I cant take anything less than a centum in these papers…if I don’t get a centum, I will blame myself in numerous way!!

5. In all the profiles I have filled…my abt me column will be the weirdest and mostly the longest. I just love to write abt the confused me

6. I confuse others as well as me…..and make it a point to make my friends read my blog...Even though they have read it in my note book…when they ask me why do I have to read it again. I would say...Coz u did not read it in my blog.

7. I love to paint, but at the same time I hate painting..coz of the time it takes for me to paint….I want everything and anything to happen instantaneously, this minute, this second…I hate waiting!!

8. How cud i forget this...i dont have a cell phone!!!!

9. you must see me when i drive my scooty pep..i out the breaks the flinstone style....u know wat i mean...i put the brakes...and go drag my feet for another 10 mts...and then will my pep stop...see even my pepe is weird like me!! wat i am saying is...beware ppl..wen u cum wid me in the bike....i might not stop at the right place at the right time....i remeber an incident..the police had stopped all the veichels..i dint kinda notice i went straight past all the veichles that has stopped...and stopped 10 mts ahead....the police was behind me..i could not see him...and later my friend who was in the other bike said..the policeman was frowning at me!!!

So there ends this weirdo column….when I asked my friends what is weird about me..they replied…what is not??

I just can still come up with more weird facts about me…but right now I am not in a mood to blog…..that itself is a weird fact….coz I love blogging!!

my news report

okai..ppl...i have started to read the newspaper properly

this is the report for 7th october

well i heard about this social activist..Irom..from manipur who has been on a fasting for the past 6 gosh is she mad or wat...she was fasting against the Armed forces (special powers) act....this act gives more freedom to shoot..Under this Act, all security forces are given unrestricted and unaccounted power to carry out their operations, once an area is declared disturbed. Even a non-commissioned officer is granted the right to shoot to kill based on mere suspicion that it is necessary to do so in order to "maintain the public order"...isnt that ridiculous......and for that reason this lady has been on a hunger strike..and she was arrested and made to take jantar mantar i gues..from there she fled to delhi...and continued her darna before gandhiji's that time her pulse rate was very low...just 40 and she was running a high temperature..she was again arrested and made to take liquid foods in the AIMMS hospital..but she says she will not and death is in the hands of the GOD...she will struggle against this act...and all the forces did was to arrest her..and did not ddo anything to consider her protest...

way to go INDIA...and hats off to social activists like her....

well ppl..great to read the news..the next item that caught my eye (would have caught my eye somehow, even if i had not read the paper!!) was joilie's and pitt's visit to INDIA
they r in shoot for a film about daniel pearl..a journo..who was killed by terrorists..pitt is the producer of the film..while jolie plays the widow of was a complete low profile visit..they were seen in the le meridian..and a spacious bunglow was set for the shooting..all the crew members were threatened from leaking any further information to media as it wud cost them their jobs..the irony of it wud cost the leakers job..and hype the media person's job!!

and well they arrived in a private jet..and fled away from the reporters..other than that they shud have got full permission to shoot here in india i gues..bcoz reports say that crew members ran into trouble in pakistan n july for filiming without permission!!..

watever...still...Indian places will be seen in international films..lets wait and watch it!!

Things to do in my CHAOTIC life!!

Halo..ppl….I am bak…….reactive I shud say…..I have decided to do some useful things in my life…..

One ~ Be serious in my studies
Reason: jus without being serious, I am okai with my studies..if I am a bit more serious…I will do really great (my friends will full heartedly agree with this!! I not rite ppl..I am only ok in my studies!!)

Two ~ Read the newspaper daily and blog about it!!
Reason: I need to get in touch with the world properly,..I have been trying to read the news paper properly for the past 5 to 6 months..but I never succeed more than reading the metro plus and particularly the calvin and hobbes comic strip!!...I never ever flipped through the main paper…inspite of getting ‘business line’ in my college everyday..i am not reading it..all I do is the sudoko in it..and fold it and put it in my bag and deliver it to my mom!! Being a commerce student I definetly need to have some amount of idea about the corporate world….and I must remember that I half way through my graduation..even now if I don’t start to read the newspaper properly..god only should save me!!

Three ~ Be serious about my CWA classes
Reason: I am properly attending only my Cost accounts class due to the love of the subject..all my other classes as to TAX..most importantly INDIRECT tax (groan..whoever found the tax department..i hate him!!)..and LAW (nothing cud be more boring than this..really all u law ppl. Are super human u all studied law!!...) my percentage attendance in these classes is only half the percentage..i need to clear all the papers…so I need to attend these classes properly..jus a couple of months left for the exam…..I need to be MORE SERIOUS (one thing I cant be for nuts!!)

Four ~ Concentrate on my writing skills
Reason: I don’t know for wat reason it is sucking a bit now….and reason to concentrate is I jus luv writing and typing!!

Five ~ Read BANKING every day till the end sem!!
Reason: I have not even listened to a single class all this semester (I really feel for it that I dint listen to a single class now..tht the sem is almost over!!)….and well u know wat I was doing in this class….writing!!..and I also missed one of my have to do properly in the last internals..if I need to keep up to my 80 % of my first yr aggregate!!

Six ~ Reduce my online hours
Reason: my TELEPHONE bill hit the roofs…..!!!.. :-(

Seven ~ Blog more
Reason: I have not been quite active. So see to that I blog more..and that too nice the different facets of my friends!! (Look out for this blog is going to be fultoo fun!!)

Eight ~ Try to do more paintings
Reason: its been half a year since I touched my paint brush!!..i need to do more paintings….coz even though I fret on the time spent to paint..the end result is really great!!

Nine ~ Start going to the gym maybe
Reason: I am thinking of keeping myself fit for a change

Ten ~ Start to live like a proper girl!!! (ppl..dont get weird ideas!!!1)
Reason: I hate shopping, I hate beauty parlors, I hate make up. I should try to like them as normal girls do!!

Eleven ~ Develop a liking towards banking and the tax dept
Reason: only my accountancy skills is not going to fetch me the best of jobs it seems….however passionate I am about the subject

Twelfth ~ Last but not the least..try to follow all these decisions
Reason: I always will say wat I wish to do..but till the end it will remain only as a wish, I would not have done it!! try to change this behavior!!!

Hopefully I wud have done some of these useful things before my next blog!!

PeEk A bOo!!

It has been almost a month since I properly blogged….!!..How unlikely of me….so lets “JET SET ACTION”. I mean BLOG through my life….well so much has happened in my life….but noting much actually happened to my life!!....I know I am confusing you people. ….But you know I am one confusion myself!! wats actually going on in my confused like…lets take a ‘peek a BOO’…hmm….for the past one month….I had become almost addicted to orkutting!!...other than that…….well….you know…..wat I have been doing…….well……….I was………wat crap..Wat was I doing all these month..Except getting almost addicted to orkutting…..nothing comes to my mind as to what I did….that was constructively useful……hmm…yeah one great thing happened..I am contributed one of my poems to my college magazine..and well the editor mailed me back asking me if I could write an article about first yrs….well..isnt tht cool. I did that..and well I also blogged that is my previous post..though wat is appearing in the magazine is just an half of it..due to the size constraints…the editor had to edit it!...other than that…I guess I have been really jobless….bunking my internal exams..relaxing at home..when all my friends were sweating it out in the exam hall!!....

How could I forget the most important moment of my life..?I donated blood…..for the first time in my life…it was an awesome experience..well we bunked all our classes for our noble cause..went and waited in the blood donation camp for almost 3 hours..going through some tests proving that we are fit enough to donate blood…myself, chitra, shilpa and Helen..from my gang donated blood…it was our long time wish to donate blood!..the first test was for seeing whether we were anemic…well your blood had to dissolve in one blue solution they had..they pricked my finger (ouch, it actually felt like an ant bite!. seriously)..took a drop of my blood, and put it in the solution….well I was holding on, actually muttering to myself ‘dissolve, dissolve’…it took time..the person who conducted the test almost decided I was anemic. And at last the blood dissolved (thank god!!)..then was my blood test..i knew it already, but they checked it again..and told me ‘be positive’, I mean my blood group is they confirmed it with me!...then was my Blood pressure test…I don’t know for wat reason, they checked my pressure almost thrice!!...and the consultant who checked, said that (some two values they check huh..i am ignorant about it, as I am no medico!!) One was low, while the other was high! See wat amount of confusions, even my metabolism has!!..then she shooted all kinds of questions to me…did I have wheezing, sinus, tooth extraction, cavity and which I replied…no I had all of them a year or two back!!..(so I actually dint leave anything), and currently I was fit as a fig (is that an Idiom?) after this they finally said I was fit and asked me to proceed to the next BIG queue for the final stage, that is to donate blood…all others have reached there before me…as they weren’t bombarded so much questions like me!1..and their pressures were all in fine level!! we were waiting..this was around 11:40 I guess….I had just had a cup of milk at 5:20 in the morning..nothing else had I taken for food!! well I was preparing before hand that I might faint as soon as I donate blood (I was scared though!!..coz I have never ever fainted in my life)…and then the coordinator of the camp asked..who all last ate food at around 8’o clock, I shoot my hand up saying I ate last at 8 (I was scared she might ask me to go back, if she knew the truth that I ate , I mean not ate, drank milk at 5!! it was too early..coz even for 8’o clock, she gave the expression of ‘my god, so early..and it is gonna be 12!! is too early ma…u will be weak after donating blood)..I being next to the door, she told me to go in FIRST!! (okai, not first..there were a lot of people b4 me, but in my batch I was first!!) I ate early, ..I was speechless…there was this inner fear you know..i had that at that time….I just went in, the people there asked me to lie down….she came checked my vein, inserted the tube (it did pain, but I shut my eyes tight)…and let me there for the blood to fill in the packet!! all happened in a matter of 15 minutes, my packet was full.. she came took out the tube, asked me to hold my hand..i saw the packet…bright, dark (how can it be bright and dark at the same time!!..gud question I myself don’t know!!)…red, maroon. A thick liquid! is gona save a life..i feel proud right this moment!!....she asked me to hold my hand, and went to the other donors, by this time..everyone, chitrs, shilpa, Helen..were donating blood..i lay there for like some 20 minutes…you know people my patience level tends to zero..i am the most impatient person known to me in this world!! I was waiting…..waiting..i actually tried to get up..i just wanted to get out of the place!!..but the person who took my blood, came and asked me to lie down for five more minutes….finally she asked me to get up..but even know she didn’t let me go!1..she asked me to sit for five minutes…and see if I felt giddy!!.....well miraculously I did not!....(my metabolism is actually great you see!!)….I said to her no I didn’t ..and jumped out of the two minutes instead of the said 5 minutes..and went to take my refreshments to replenish the blood taken!...well I am still pretty excited about the whole incident, and I am waiting for the next time to donate people, please come forward and donate blood, save a life, and donating blood is actually good you know..and I also received a certificate for donating blood..isn’t that cool!!!

Other than that..well, I am trying myself hard to concentrate on my studies!! and a month I have to give my semester, and in a couple of months I have to give my CWA inter Stage 1..papers…the biggest one!!..and my level of preparations is not even 2 % right now!!..i wonder why I am turning into such an hopeless person these days..not knowing what to do with my life!1….and well not even following the path I have taken properly, not giving my fullest contribution to what I have taken!!....I will only fuss over it like this, I never take a proper action!!...why am I like this??

Well, I have also grown addicted to music that was an all time addiction though… recent favorites were..Or should I say lines were...

Kayil mithakum kanava nee
Kai kal mulaitha katra nee
Kaiyil enthiyum kanakavillaya
Nuraiyal seitha silaya nee

Nilavil porugal idai ilakum
Neerilum porul idai illakum
Kadahalil koda idai ilakum
Indru kandenadiya
Ithai kandukonden adiyai

From the movie ratchagan...and old one
And then from the recent movie,’Silunu oru kadhal’

avalukena amba samuthara ayyar hotel aluva mathiri
thalampooven thala thala venna vanthal vanthal!!

Cute lyrics...just for this I listen to the songs...well I cud say they r my recent obsessions of my one two many obsessions…

Anyway jus wanted to make a note of I wrote the lyrics!....other than that I have the same old zany confusing life

Anything which is the first time will have special significance to us. Be our first day on this earth, the first steps taken with our little legs, our first day in school, first day of college…the list is endless. Every time it is a new beginning. A new discovery. Speaking of college almost the whole of our first year is of great significance. It is definitely a new beginning. We discover surprisingly our new potentials, talents which were hiding in us all through our school life like how I discovered my potential for writing. All through school I have never written a proper essay for my English class!

Entering college….having no more dull boring school uniforms, big bulky bags, and two plaits. It was like entering a whole new colorful world. When I asked my first years if they share my opinion, I was really surprised. ‘It does feel great, but I actually miss my 2 plaits!!’ said Aarthi a first year commerce student. Many actually missed there school uniform and two plaits (though the other side of the story is they never properly wore two plaits in school so they are missing them now!!). A sociology student said that now there are no more school uniforms, there is freedom of expression. Well for the bag part –‘the bags have not changed, they are still bulky’ said Tejasvi and Bhavitha, both commerce students. (Of course being in commerce you will have to carry your big bulky R.L.Guptha book even through your second year, nobody can help you!!!.)

We have one of the finest campuses in the city. ‘The campus is great-only thing is at times it is dirty’ was the unanimous reply from the first years. While Meera of sociology had a better idea, she loves the campus so much that she said she wanted ‘cleaning day’ on campus on a Sunday every month!! She doesn’t mind spending a few hours in college, but it has to be accompanied with credits! (Maybe our students union will look into this idea, and improvise on it!)

One great regret they had been that they were not been ragged!! ‘Seniors do not behave like seniors; they are just like us’ says Aarthi. While Tejasvi was of the view that ‘They say they are friendly seniors, yes I agree with it. They are quite approachable. But I have my friends to be friendly with. I want my seniors to be seniors, really bossy and should rag us’. Well but officially ragging is banned in our college we can’t help it! ‘Seniors are approachable but they never approach us’ said Shristi of the fine arts department.

What is college life without a little bit of classes...Ok I am a bit exaggerating; we have a good amount of classes to attend in college that is supposed to be the prime reason for us to come to college! Our college actually has a great attendance system to draw students to their classes. It is attendance every hour. ‘It is actually a fantastic way to make people come to college’ said Meera. Most of them felt that it was terrible, it was standing in there way of bunking classes. (You see our administration is much cleverer than us! They have got 60 years of experience handling students like us and have come up with this master plan of attendance every hour!!)

As for the transformation from school life to college life, most of them were missing school life ‘College life is great, but I actually miss school at times. It takes time to settle in a new environment after being nurtured and guided for 15 years in school’ said Nikila rajiv of the commerce department. Most of them feel that school is best…as they are just in their first year, in two more years I am sure they are likely to change their opinion! While some prefer college is best as it gives them more responsibility and independence, and helps to define you better than in school.

Our journey of life is never ending, we walk through paths and passages, hills and caves, we meet a number of people, and some become our best buddies, while others just go past us. But in the end we have to leave our best buddies and move on with our life. Like joining a different college that suits us. When asked the first years how did it feel to leave their best friend and come to a new place and make new friends? The responses were varied. Some of them were lucky enough to have their best buddies still in the same college. ‘It is just a one way road, you have got to travel along it, I do miss my friends, yet I made great friends over here’ said Michelle of the BCA department. ‘Making new friends just happened effortlessly, without me realizing it’ said Sristi of the fine arts department. ‘It is awful to leave your best buddy, but I have made a great many friends here. And it also gives an opportunity to interact with different types of personalities’ said a first year literature student.

Well all is well that ends well. The three years of college life is definitely going to be great as we are in one of the best colleges of the city. And like how we treasure our school life with all those nostalgic feelings that arise when you see a student on the road wearing your school’s uniform we will treasure our college life in three years up the lane. And the same nostalgic feeling will arise when some one says they are from our college! All I could say is we are in one of the best parts of our life. So live like there is no tomorrow, rejoice each and every moment as it won’t come back again!

An hour of Banking class: my thoughts running loose

This is the class that let my mind loose. The class that nurtures my writing skills. My thoughts flow free with no barriers – I think what not in this class…but Maam’s monotonous voice is keeping on echoing in my mind..again and again..what do I write…I am getting bored in this dumb class…
Hey, it seems like Alice is listening to class. Sherine is writing and passing notes and pretending to listen to class. Sophia is doing her short hand lessons. Chitra is doing sudoku. Sagaya, Deepthi, Yazhilini, Helen are staring at maam with no other option!! Aruna and Shilpa are listening to class.
Ok..fine the spelling of ‘inconvenience’ is it right the 7th time..thanks to Alice and Chitra!!
Now what..Banking maam wants us to take some points…lets write it down shall we…

TYPES OF CROSSING [heading]-(what crossing?? Oh yeah, cheque crossing….not road crossing!!!!)
1) General Crossing- Sec 123 – definition- (the normal one yaar)
~ Essentials of general crossing:
a)2 lines are of great importance in crossing – (very important...yes I know this for a zebra crossing it must have black and white lines!!!!)
b)Lines must be drawn parallel and transverse – (ok! I know parallel zebra crossing lines – transverse???!!!....ok she has gone to the next point)
c)Lines are generally drawn on the left hand side so as to not to obliterate or alter the printed no. of the cheque and it should not cut or cross some of the writing – (in simple words, do not scribble unnecessarily on the cheque!!!..Got it people!!!)
d)The words ‘and company’ and its abbreviation are written between the lines, they by themselves do not constitute crossing, but it has been a practice to write them when the drawer does not know the name of the payer banker – (if he doesn’t know the name why does he draw...When he draws lines must be lengthy enough to constitute ‘and company’ and what ever abbreviation it has!!!)
e)Similarly the words ‘not negotiable’, ‘account payee only’ may be added to the crossing – (but I have a query here…if you add not negotiable...Then the cheque (literally) is not a negotiable instrument right!!!..Then what is a cheque now….??!!!)

(Ok, I know I am taking Banking class very LIGHTLY..And I know this is going to reflect in my exam!!!!!)
~ Significance of general crossing:
a)It gives direction to a paying banker - (oh so it means otherwise the banker is blind and doesn’t know the rout to take…I pity him!!!)
b)The direction is that the amount of cheque should not be paid at counter but to a fellow banker, that is it should be made through an account and not at the counter of the paying bank – (but what if that fellow banker runs away…and doesn’t all operations of the bank pass through the counter..Be it passing through an account or another way...It is still done at the counter right!!!!)
c)If a crossed cheque is paid at the counter in contravention of crossing,
# The payment does not amount to payments in due course; paying banker will lose his statuary protection.
# He has no right to debit his customers account as it constitutes breach of customers mandate – (I even more pity the banker)
# He will be liable to the drawer for any loss he may suffer – (I declare that I will never take a banker’s seems to be a very difficult one yaar….counting the no. of breaches he can do...Which I am bound to do!!!!)
d)The main intention of crossing is to give protection to it but general crossing gives only limited protection – (then why the heck did I learn this whole crap, if it isn’t going to give full protection) in the sense that if a thief is not the customer of the paying banker he can encash the cheque through forging the signature of the payee. However it can be deducted – (then what is the damn problem over here!!!). To avoid this danger special crossing was introduced – ( so basically protection is not the main intention……it is letting in the thief and letting him to forge the sign!!!)

2)Special crossing – definition – section 124:
~ Essentials of Special Crossing:
a)2 parallel lines are not at all essential – (so how do you cross with out zebra lines….you will have to jump and fly to cross huh!!!)
b)Name of the banker (collecting banker) has to be necessarily specified on the face of the cheque – (so a cheque has a face, body… interesting!!!) it alone constitutes Special crossing – (ALONE!!! the essentials is it must have a face and a name on it…so simple… even each one of us can become a cheque…. We all have a face…on it we write a bankers name… we become a cheque!!!!)

(Bell rang….hmm..end of an hours torture…….will seeya in next class….tille then adios….this is zanychild a.k.a vidya!!!)

you give me a title !!

Hii there!! During one of the personality development classes that I attended in college, the following is one such exercise which we were required to do. We had to frame an imaginative and creative story of our own using some words randomly given to us. The words are as follows:

Davos-tissue-blood- car radio-carpet-ball-apple-knife-footprints-coat-road-window-ambience-pathbreaking-news

When I saw these words first, I thought these would be very useful in framing a nice fictional mystery/thriller story. So here goes my first proper original short story of mine:

On a typical cold winter night in Davos, the Minister of Industries, K. Naik is still contemplating about what had happened over the past week. A renowned journalist and newspaper editor, Sudhesh Kaur had discovered certain confidential information regarding a foreign commercial agreement in which Naik had very conveniently roped in a lot of money for himself. Sudhesh was once a very good friend of Naik but then where is friendship spared in the dirty game of competitive politics. Thus, Naik was at stake. His involvement in the agreement would create a hell of a controversy. But Sudhesh being a shrewd journalist thought of getting himself richer through this leak out and called Naik home for negotiation.

They greet each other for the sake of doing it and Sudhesh makes two glasses of whisky on the rocks. Sudhesh soon comes to his point and proposes a huge sum to which Naik was dumbstruck. But he had no other choice than to accept his proposal since his everything was at stake-his post, his income, his standing in society and the welfare of his own family. He starts to sweat unusually and takes out a tissue to wipe himself. He looked out of the window totally ashamed by his actions and did not know what to do. He saw a cunning feel in the eyes of Sudhesh that troubled him. Seeing a knife pierced into an apple placed in a bowl on the table gave him strange and evil ideas. He felt like taking that knife and piercing it into the body of Sudhesh, his blood oozing out which would stain his coat and drop on the carpet. Then he would have to clean the carpet to remove all evidence and would also to have to see that he left no fingerprints or footprints behind. After that, he would have to carry his body to the car and drive the corpse to a forbidden land and bury him like he had seen in most movies. This thought scared him even more and he finally agreed to make the deal with Sudhesh who was at the same time playing with a ball like paperweight. After shaking hands, Naik leaves and drives back home listening to his favourite program over the car radio. But this time, it did not amuse him like before. He imagined hearing from the same car radio, an announcement regarding the pathbreaking discovery of Naik in the international scam.

Now in his hotel room in Davos which had a nice posh comforting ambience, made no difference to Naik who knew that anytime anything could be done to distort his standing and maybe he would not able to come here the next year for the World Economic Forum.

So let me know how you found my story and do send me in your honest comments. Thanks a ton for taking the time to read it.

Take care

We ARe GoD!!!

The very concept God enthralls me!!! I am not an atheist….I believe in God…but I am not into the process of praying, going to temples…I don’t think that it is a necessary criteria to be fulfilled to prove that you believe in God. I believe in God as in me… ‘My conscience’…that is my god. It keeps a constant watch over me... it is my conscience that makes me feel happy, guilty, sad… it shows me what is right, what is wrong, what is good, and what is bad…. Isn’t that what God should do… it even guides me in my life, my problems and my activities. So I take it that God is within me…. It’s my conscience…

Well I am not against people who are very God fearing, go to temples, churches and mosques… and who blindly follow God… let them follow their faith while I follow mine… but I always wonder how this concept ‘God’ or the word ‘God’ evolved… how did people start believing in God. From the evolution of homosapiens… from Apes to Nomads and Caveman to Civilized people now. Where did God come into existence.....? As a remember history ….. I think nature was worshipped as God first… and there comes the existence of God….Fire god, Water god, Mother Earth was also God…. But wait, my friend over here says God created nature… yes… I think people do believe God created Earth and nature… so … what period should I say as god evolved?? … Well all is well and ends well… God evolved someday… and he/she has evolved… so let’s get deeper into the topic of God… But… one more point. God was recognized only when proper humans evolved… it is only the humans who found the concept of God… it is us who says God evolved first… but it is discovered only in our period… so as of now I say…God came into existence as humans came into existence.

God evolved. Period. Then what happens… people give forms to the God for a more accurate picture. Except the Islam community and some parts of the Hindu and Christian community which do not perform idol worship… so thus a series of Gods came into existence… let me list the no. of Gods I know (God or Goddess all the same). Well I start with my Hindu religion… lord Shiva (the destroyer), Lord Brahma (the creator), Saraswathi, Lakshmi, Mahalakshmi, Venkatachalapathi or Balaji, Ganesha, Muruga, Parvati, all kinds of Amman’s, Hanuman, Krishna (my personal favorite), The Navagrahas, Kali, Rama… the list is endless. Then there is Jesus and Allah… sees how simple it is to list the names of God’s of other religions… as the Hindu mythology… I think every day a God evolves!!!.... well there is one advantage… you wont feel bored going to the temples… as there is a great many temples for the great many Gods… you know you get variety to chose from!!! And each and every God has a fascinating story behind them… I tell you Mythology is a very fascinating subject… you just wonder, wonder and wonder more if you go deeper into the subject of Mythology.

So where are we in my article…? God evolved, he/she was given forms. Now what does that aspect of god do in your life? Why do we need a God? Why do we believe in a supreme power or force above us? I guess it is to keep us inclined to our respective paths in our life…to be stable… not to lose our focus of minds… to achieve our goals… Basically the illusion of God is created… so that people will fear doing the wrong thing. The essence of God watching over you will prevent people from doing bad…. The fear that God will punish them for their wrong doings in the future…. but you know what that God is… it has no form… it is within us, as I said our conscience…. It punishes you by making you feel guilty, bad… so people everywhere to escape this laud the good.

Well, well… while talking about good… we should definitely talk about bad (shouldn’t we?) Good and bad both are juxtaposed to each other… only when there is good we know there is bad, only when there is bad there is good… God symbolizes good, while Satan symbolizes bad… we can say that without God there is no Satan and vice versa...

SATAN …… the very sound of it brings a bad, dark, mysterious feeling to us… Satan symbolizing bad is actually a good thing… because for every positive aspect in life there must be an adjacent negative aspect. It is this negative aspect that makes the positive aspect much stronger.

Now, as I think….as my thoughts flow…. God primarily came into existence due to the bad or negative aspect of life… think about it yourself… if everything in your life is well and good why will you pray or believe in god? It is when things aren’t proper and life is not going the way you wish it to go, that you look up to God… after some time when things start taking shape and everything goes fine you thank God… for rectifying your life… thus you pray, thank, pray, thank….that’s how life goes on with its ups and downs. It is only and only when things in life aren’t proper and bad karma prevails in your life and bad things happen in the world that you look up and wonder ‘is there a God?’ Well the very question has the answer… if there isn’t a God… why are you wondering about him in the first place!!!

Now I think Satan is God (and I know you people out there are fretting when I am gonna end this article. but this one really set me thinking!!! About me and what I am doing in the world!!!) well now I say Satan is God because….he/she is God of bad…but as God is usually associated with good they gave him/her the dark name of SATAN (hey..But in Hindu mythology…Satan is also God. We have Yama dharma...Remeber!!!)

What ever name you give…God/Satan, the almighty, the supreme power… it is all a total illusion….if this illusion wasn’t there… the world would have been destroyed… people’s life would have been haywire… the words ‘guilty’, ‘feeling bad’, ‘conscience’ wouldn’t come into existence. The force of love would have become weak… people would be crazy, cold hearted, have a heart of stone… the world would be a living hell. There will be no balance in Earth… the balance of right to wrong, good to bad, God to Satan, heaven to hell is very much required for our lives to run smoothly…

But the whole point of my article is to find out who is God??? it is us…each one of us is God…we choose either to be God or Satan…It is within us… our inner feeling…our inner feeling exists because of us…so we are God…or Satan…we say God rules the world…in a practical point of view. Who rules? We right….so we are God….you may ask if we created nature…I suggest you to go and read the archeological and scientific research on how Earth was formed. Heard of big bang theory and all that stuff….so no supernatural force created Earth…it was all a natural evolution…so I stand to my point that we, each one of us is God/Satan…you might criticize my point of view…I say it is all in your mind….it is a funny thing….your mind I mean…you tend to believe what is not existing….but you don’t believe things that are right before your naked eyes…. Funny people we are…

Note:- I am not against anyone. This is purely my point of view and I believe each one of us is God…

Self confession - of whom???me of course!!!!

People I encounter look at me and say….
To my parents…….such a lovely daughter.
To my brother……you are lucky to have her as your sister!!!
To my friends……a friend indeed
To my teachers…..good student isn’t she?

(Statements stated above are purely true and valid…seriously believe me people!!!!!)

Hmmm…..I wonder to how many they should have said these...

Why is it necessary to be good to people around you. I am not saying we mustn’t be good to people around us…but why deceive ourselves just to please others. I believe life should be lived fully cherishing every movement, every fight and argument one makes, every real praise one says to people around them and with full spirit of joy and cheerfulness and straightforwardness...

Why is it necessary that I will be accepted by the society I live, only if I live to its customary expectations?? Can’t I live my way of life? Can’t I follow my own crazy rules in life? Why should I always live to others expectations which envelop my original expectations from me, which I have perceived……..or would have perceived if given a chance!!!!

I am a good student…..and I hate being one! Till 10th standard….I was this girl who used to get ranks within the range of 5 – 15th … was great and rocking then…my parents were happy with me….as I was back then…but on reaching class 11 (miraculously and fortunately and unfortunately) I topped the class due to the increased interest in the subjects I took…..and from then on… was no turning back in my academic life….

Responsibilities, expectations and more expectations and workload came rushing to me….those things which I never cared about in my previous year…responsibility and me!!!......Lol……I am the laziest person on earth…and I guess the last responsible person on earth…

My parents, family, teachers, school started expecting more from me… if I fail to top anywhere…..they would be like…what happened?? Any problem??? Tell us, you didn’t top this time… something bothering you???? (Well what is bothering me is everyone around me!!!)

And slowly and effortlessly they changed me. They made me more focused on my studies and even made me possessive and what now mattered to me were marks, marks and more marks!!!! I even felt the first pangs of jealousy in me…..if anyone got more marks then me, I felt jealous and at the same time bad about being jealous….I couldn’t understand my behavior then. I develop instant hatred to the person (though I forget it quickly…) and feel low myself and start degrading my potentials. But I never (fortunately) express my feelings outside…so I was this nice good girl to everyone. Even though I knew I was deceiving myself portraying a false cheerful image to people around me…..

Well, I had my good times being a good student…people looked at me…and I turned suddenly from the not so popular to the somewhat popular girl…..but not that it mattered to me…I always wish to be unknown……and well my friends who used to call me to chitchat now called me to clear doubts…and some became my friends only for the very reason I study….and well life went on….

It was all well and good for two whole years…I topped the class consecutively….no one would ever dream otherwise that I will not top the boards….and really everyone was expecting my board results to be great….and the day of exams came…and I gave them pretty well….and on completion went into holiday moods.

The day of results……it came….and I stood 5th in my class…..what happened in-between…..4 of them raced me….it didn’t matter to me…I got an awesome 94%...but people around me, were shocked that I did not top the class….that made me feel bad…..and well I did not even talk to my grandpa…who called me to congratulate me for getting wonderful marks….but I was crying and whining the whole day….I was happy with my marks….but crying came natural…and I even remember my grandpa telling to his friend…who had called him happily saying his grand daughter got 90% in the boards and was celebrating it……that I was crying after getting 94%....!!!!

Well….at last I stopped crying…went to school….greeted everyone on their marks…..and even congratulated those who topped me….heartily….telling to myself…I can not top always…god gives everybody equal chances….and my chance too will come some time in future….

And thus school over…I joined college…there too I started studying…but let me tell you. I personally feel coming to coll…the amount of concentration I am giving to my academics had gone down drastically as compared to my school days……and well I have been giving my best…and class 12 board exams had brought me down to reality…that marks doesn’t matter…it is only the knowledge you gained matters….even now my school thinks…..well my school friends think I am still the topper in class no matter what marks I got in my boards…..and I have tried to change myself….no longer do I frequent the pangs of jealousy and hatred to people in me….

By the end of my college life… probability of becoming jealous of people should go down and reach zero…is all that I aim…and well I decided to live life completely…and it isn’t always study…it involves equal amount of fun too.....and when will you enjoy life if you don’t do it know…

All I want to say is…life is short enjoy it to fullest possible core…..with no feelings of hatred and jealousy….


Zany child as always

The great ‘game’ of cricket has us all enthralled in its captivity. To the extent that one time fans and long time connoisseurs of the game, have turned into fanatics of the sport. This is hard to deny especially after some Zealots gave vent to their feelings at the Indian cricket team’s poor performance, at the world cup by breaking the windows of cricketer’s houses and indulging in such barbaric atrocities. Things reached such a stage where the team was publicly castigated in the parliament by our honorable ministers.

That was definitely the height of ludicrousness. The cricketers were even threatened with dire consequences if they lost the World cup match to Pakistan. It is perhaps a sad reflection of our times that a Majority of the public couldn’t care less if India lost the world cup final to Australia as long as they thrashed Pakistan. The fanatics act as if the team Commit sacrilege by losing to Pakistan. For a true blue fan of the game like me it is certainly a deplorable situation that the game nowadays finds itself in, Especially in India.

Moreover the Indian team is praised sky high if it wins by every Tom, Dick and Harry but castigated too by all and sundry if it loses a match. Things need to be put into perspective here. Nobody is perfect in this world, the man who came closest; the great Don Bradman was dismissed in his last test innings for a duck. No team can win every match. Even the Australians lose from time to time. The spectators need to be broad minded for the good of the game at large. There exists a wafer thin line between fans and fanatics nowadays and it is too easily crossed by those who watch the game.

Even experienced, retired professional cricketers commenting on the game get carried away and become highly critical of their team when it loses. They blast the team in public and this sometimes leads to a lot of unnecessary bad blood between the players and the retired stars which must be avoided for the robust health of the game at large. The players are of the opinion that they appreciate criticism but sometimes when it is exaggerated and unjustified, they feel let down and hurt. Frankly tell me, does a team need the backing of its supporters when it is doing well and on top or when it is at its lowest ebb? It should be the latter, but unfortunately the contrary happens.

The team is derided by the so called loyal supporters when it loses. It doesn’t matter if the team fights bravely and loses a match by 3 runs or if it fails to put up any semblance of a fight and gets thrashed by 100 runs. In the case of the former,(the fans if they can be called so) claim the team snatched defeat from the jaws of victory, while in case of the latter they claim the team is soulless and is not interested in playing for the country and are more concerned about their bank balance and their commercial ventures. Nothing could be more grossly unfair to the players.

When the same team wins and performs magnificently, they are hailed as world beaters though the players never think along such lines. A pragmatic approach is required at this point of time. Sachin Tendulkar never declared he will score a century each time he walks out to bat. He can only try to achieve it .It is only we who expect it of him. Hats off to Tendulkar for having delivered consistently all these years despite the enormous burden he has to shoulder every time he plays for the nation. Still we are insatiated.Our expectations increase manifold each passing day. The fans bay for his blood even if he fails in a couple of innings ignoring what he has achieved in 15 years of international cricket. I can only pity the man and his profession. To err is human, but to forgive is divine.

But the paying public is not prepared to yield even an inch let alone forgive the team for losing which is a sad reflection of our times. We all fail to appreciate the fact that the 'gentleman's game' implies that not only the players but also the spectators and those connected with the game too should behave like gentlemen. We have allowed the great game to reduce us to fanatics which doesn’t augur well for the future of the game. It is an irony that if the same fervour, unity, commitment and loyalty exhibited towards cricket in India were shown in all other walks of life, we would have become a world superpower a long time back.
