Less than 2 months and counting down

We are expecting our first baby and its about less than 2 months to delivery. It feels very different. Big shoes to fill, anxiety and many more things, emotions mostly.

That and coupled from the fact that i know barely anything about being a father. 

A month back when i was back home, holding Ayeden felt so good, also knowing the fact that i could hold him was even better. 

 

The girl in yellow boots (review)

We had 2 choices, either go for “the girl in yellow boots” by Anurag Kashyap, or try “bodyguard”. Glad i did not go for bodyguard, my wife differs completely. I must say indie films though not in the pure technical term in India have come to a mature level.

I read a review that it was a suspense not a thriller, It is the former yet the climax is very sudden and least expected. Kalki Koechlin (KK) does a lot of justice to her role. She takes her “Shaitan” Performance quite a few notches over here. 

There is just one plot here. Though you might find a lot in the first half to bear, worry not it does build quite a nice punch in the end. Too many “happy endings” or “hand shakes” put in the middle may be a lil bit off the mark here, but the rest makes up for it.

What could have been left out/changed/ etc etc.

  1. The minor sub plot of KK’s boyfriend and his antics. Not sure why that was part or given so much screen time
  2. Nasserudin Shah – The part about him finding the truth – Not really needed.
  3. Background score at the end/climax – should have been more intense.

All in all a must watch if you really want your brain cells to work overtime

Btw if you think you figured out the end before the end. Do let me know how did u manage it.

Cranberry Sauce and Chicken Sukka

Cranberry Sauce and some other niceties.

2 Weddings in about 4 days and one more on Saturday, Is it Hunting season oops Wedding season or wot Lolz, Anyways Went to Mangalore over the weekend to attend Wifey’s Cousin’ Wedding. What a Blast man!!! Seriously Mumbai is really over-rated when it comes to having fun. Day 1 we sleep at about 2. Day 2 we sleep at 4. Music going on till we drop.

Btw they have LiVe Music in Mangalore still, Take that Dance House Mumbai. !! There is really a different feel of dancing with a LiVe Band playing in the background. And you get to hear Konkanni Songs thats really gets your return to roots.

Nonsense

What do u do when whatever you have planned to do the whole week goes down in a pile of lets says Shit…..

You sulk u crib and u give the hazar gallis to whosoever is responsible.

bTw SCRIBE was playing at some Chembur english school, hmm mark of teja in a high school, this i gotta see. I had seen “naked earth” play in my school, but they were so much a trash/metal band and we never did hear a bad work other than a word called (fuck). Who says its a bad word any more.

I got back to twitter, but am already bored of it….

Noise around that silence

There is silence around her,
her head screams of pain
love the hate she screams
but there is no-one left to her

butchered remains of her mind
tell tale signs of world gone wrong
the sum of all parts
has been all to nought

running thru her mind
is a hint of survival
the day the night
give it a week or two

Radio Static

sound waves over my head
encrypted by regional bias
so much for unity
division over voice matters
tis twisting my mind
playing with my neurons
i am trying to make sense
trying hard, it gives me a headache

laughs and conversations i
feel like am out of the sphere
feels like a consipiracy
or is this me coming undone

if this a giving up, it is not
if this a surrender its is not
there cant be a white flag
cuz the paranoia does not ask for defeat

if you think, then dont
if you must act, you must
the future is murked
the smile on my face is crooked

Immigrants are good

Karmic one month later.

About a month earlier i installed ubuntu. It was not the best of installations not cause of the installer itself. Something to do with my hard drive itself i guess. Anyways its been a month.

love it. If i am to describe in 2 words. Yes sometime i feel you have to work a lot so get some functionality working. But love the way the software is setup. For the amount of software windows has its amazing to see how much linux has. A lot.

And the end cometh!!!!

This would be one of the last posts on this blog. Through the years i have posted lots. Read by almost nonone except a trusted group of friends. Thanks guys. But i do not have anything to post no more. There might be intermittent posts if i feel and have something to write, but do not count on it. I would be reading your blogs and commenting. btw Fb and orkut activity would be down as well. My friends have my email/phone.

Adios Amigos/Amigas!!!!

Speech by Chetan Bhagat at Symbiosis

The below is supposedly a speech by Chetan Bhagat.

Don’t just have career or academic goals. Set goals to give you a balanced, successful life. I use the word balanced before successful. Balanced means ensuring your health, relationships, mental peace are all in good order.

There is no point of getting a promotion on the day of your breakup. There is no fun in driving a car if your back hurts. Shopping is not enjoyable if your mind is full of tensions.

“Life is one of those races in nursery school where you have to run with a marble in a spoon kept in your mouth. If the marble falls, there is no point coming first. Same is with life where health and relationships are the marble. Your striving is only worth it if there is harmony in your life. Else, you may achieve the success, but this spark, this feeling of being excited and alive, will start to die. ……………….

One thing about nurturing the spark – don’t take life seriously. Life is not meant to be taken seriously, as we are really temporary here. We are like a pre-paid card with limited validity. If we are lucky, we may last another 50 years. And 50 years is just 2,500 weekends. Do we really need to get so worked up? …………….

It’s ok, bunk a few classes, scoring low in couple of papers, goof up a few interviews, take leave from work, fall in love, little fights with your spouse. We are people, not programmed devices………” :)

“Don’t be serious, be sincere.”!!
