It was the summer of 2003 and everyone was raving about the new slew of matrix movies that had blessed us mortal souls . Here again the common thread was mtv for the uninitiated there is a program which airs on mtv america(y..y..y.. not in India!!) named TRL which reviews the latest movies ,has all the star cast from the movie in the studios with ppl who have been treated with an advance show n all plus it plays the latest music videos.

So now that u have some background info on TRL we will continue with the heart breaker so after getting to see all the star cast of matrix trilogy and hearing there views on the movie they cue in a song "why not" and show a teeny meeny girl driving a scooter and it was infatuation at first sight .I soon found out that the girl was Hillary Duff and the song was from the movie "Lizzie McGuire" since then the lil girl has grown up and left behind the days of Disney channel, is now into a full fledged singing career her first album Metamorphosis has some pretty cool songs like "so yesterday" and "coming clean " .
I think the best song that she has sung till now is So yesterday ,it has a pretty cool video as well so watch out for her in the future .

It was the autumn of 2002 when I came across avril lavigne's debut album .It all started when I first heard the song " I am with u " from her first album " let go " on mtv and from then on there's hasn't been any looking back for her .
Since 2002 she has gone on to release another album named " under my skin " and has been enjoin the good things that come with being young and successful in Hollywood.
I can go on and on and rave about the poise with which she has mapped out her career and public life in the big bad world infested with paparazzi and celebrities who'll do anything just to be on the cover of a magazine or a few sound bites on TV ,but alas it's her music that has kept me glued on to her even after 3 years where most bands have a shelf life of an year or .So from the rebellious songs like " in my world " and " nobody's fool " , the powerful rock ballad of " I am with u " and the all spunky " complicated " from the first album to the soulful " daydream " her songs have a resonance with ur life and u can't help but feel nostalgic . For those who haven't heard her yet than stop reading this god damn blogger post and do something about it , download , or buy a CD or whatever .
this was the first part of the young, ubercool and the hippest people that I admire (all of them being females ahm ahm!!If you didn't get the idea from the headline)

Things are changing or so are the perceptions in the pplz mind
Is it because of us or is it because of them is a debatable point .

We the students (read males) studying at the most sought after colleges in India (read IIT ) are facing a kind of social abandonment from our peers in other colleges. On one hand these ppl yearn to be among us and on the other hand they would do anything to keep us out of their social circles time and again this belief of mine has gained ground not because nething personal to me but what I see happening to many of my mates (my skin is too thick to be perturbed by these incidents).

I think the crux of the matter lies in the fact that IIT's lack the atmosphere where ppl can indulge in diverse social contact that they may have to face when they go out of the campus
And among many reasons the most prominent would be that the social atmosphere in IIT's is totally different then the one found in other colleges and therefore I think that we iitians should be aware of these facts when we go outside and interact with ppl. As I always say

"So what, so I've got a smile on
But it's hiding the quiet superstitions in my head"

ps: plz whoever is reading this if u r an iitian stop sending random messages and chat invitations to ppl on the net

when harry met sally

Harry Burns: You know, I have a theory that hieroglyphics are just an ancient comic strip about a character named Sphinxy.
Harry Burns: You realize of course that we could never be friends.
Sally Albright: Why not?
Harry Burns: What I'm saying is - and this is not a come-on in any way, shape or form - is that men and women can't be friends because the sex part always gets in the way.
Sally Albright: That's not true. I have a number of men friends and there is no sex involved. Harry Burns: No you don't.
Sally Albright: Yes I do.
Harry Burns: No you don't.
Sally Albright: Yes I do.
Harry Burns: You only think you do.
Sally Albright: You say I'm having sex with these men without my knowledge?
Harry Burns: No, what I'm saying is they all WANT to have sex with you.
Sally Albright: They do not.
Harry Burns: Do too.
Sally Albright: They do not.
Harry Burns: Do too.
Sally Albright: How do you know?
Harry Burns: Because no man can be friends with a woman that he finds attractive. He always wants to have sex with her.
Sally Albright: So, you're saying that a man can be friends with a woman he finds unattractive? Harry Burns: No. You pretty much want to nail 'em too.
Sally Albright: What if THEY don't want to have sex with YOU?
Harry Burns: Doesn't matter because the sex thing is already out there so the friendship is ultimately doomed and that is the end of the story.
Sally Albright: Well, I guess we're not going to be friends then.
Harry Burns: I guess not.
Sally Albright: That's too bad. You were the only person I knew in New York.

Why am I me

Ever wondered why you are the way you are ?
ever thought if u were not this than what would you be ?
or if you can change who you are ?

And don't start rehearsing the Ms world type answers "oh I wouldn't change anything bout myself (basically meaning I and perfect and whose gonna change that)
We all have things that we want to change bout ourselves whether it's the way we look ,the way we walk or the way we talk or things that we are not even aware we would like to change about ourselves.

But the question that why so many people want to change so many things about them still remains unanswered and to find a probable solution to this question is the goal of this post

is it the never ending quest for perfection
is it peer pressure
is it because we are not appreciative of our virtues
is it because we are all fools and appreciative bout the physical beauty

there are refutation to all the above

if perfection is our quest than y so many of us are imperfect
the most plausible one
really don't have the foggiest idea bout this one
all supermodels are content then I guess :-0

drop in ur comments and let me know what u think(rambling of a delusional man)

happy thinking

crackfire over n out

What a woderful world

I see trees of green, red roses too
I see them bloom for me and you
And I think to myself what a wonderful world.

I see skies of blue and clouds of white
The bright blessed day, the dark sacred night
And I think to myself what a wonderful world.

The colors of the rainbow so pretty in the sky
Are also on the faces of people going by
I see friends shaking hands saying how do you do
They're really saying I love you.

I hear babies crying, I watch them grow
They'll learn much more than I'll never know
And I think to myself what a wonderful world
Yes I think to myself what a wonderful world.


An that's the way a cookie crumbles

Alas blogger let's me post(after tryin for an hour thankyou very much)

it's been a while and it's really has been a roller coaster ride this past week
Monday started as usual full of energy from the recharged batteries of the last weekend
but on Wednesday lightning struck and I was down with a severe cold couldn't do much on Thursday but fought back and got my bearings right on Friday n here I am posting again.

this time I think I am gonna right something a lil light far all u readers(yea I have delusions)
ever heard the line

by the time I recognize this moment this moment will be gone but I'll bend the light and pretend that it some how lingered on oooh oooh !!

haven't welcome to the veritable world of crackfire's music these lines are the work of a true genius named John Mayer written at the a moment of pure clarity .They tell u that the relentless march of time goes own and there are moments that one wants to hold to forever
We encase these moments in the tiny bubbles in the endless sea of our memory and make them rise like white froth when we want to relive theem .
As an F -16 enthusiast said:

if time flies when u are having fun then it hits after burners when u don't think u are having enough

On to the present and

these days the karma's right
the sun shines bright
these days I don't think twice
I walk on light
I am positively somewhere.

yea positive thinking is the sure way to happiness .A positive attitude may not solve all ur problems but it will annoy enough people to make it worth an effort

Pakistan last hope:India part 1

As it has already been told in the previous post that Pakistan is a nation without a goal n it's ppl don't know wad they want theie nation to be as it charts thru the new century and i mean phrases like glory to my country and Jihad don't count when u get down to the serious topic of nation building.

so as I have already told that the last hope of pakisan are it's ppl in Karachi coz they as for now seem to be the most able to lead their country the problem bout Pakistan that it was born out of it's founding fathers hatred of the secular leadership of India and his hunger for a more dominant role in the politics of the country it was this individual's lust for power that blinded him at that time*(more on this ahead) and led to the creation of this country since then the Pakistani leadership has had a jaundiced eye towards India ,unable to think wad they want to do with the chunk of land that they have got they resorted to the only thing that they are best at India bashing.

now we shall have a look at the attitude of Pakistani ppl in general well first up are the ppl from a place called baluchistan(it's a state there) who are sitting on most of pakistan's gas reserves these ppl have no love feelings for the government at Islamabad and well for what I have heard no problems with India as well ,these ppl are tribal n live the lives of nomads so no hopes here for a better Pakistan from these ppl

next up we look at the sind now these ppl are mostly into trading and agriculture and well seem to reflect the most liberal ppl u will find in that country(Karachi is in this state)

next comes the agricultural basket of Punjab these ppl hosted the joint Punjab games just recently .ppl here are mostly farmers but there's a problem here too the system of farming here is feudal and the real ppl who till the land aren't in a very good condition (NAWAJ SHARIF ,the x prime minister of Pakistan belongs to this state and as a feudal lord himself)
and as is everywhere rich ppl manipulate the system to there advantage so no help coming from here though they may be important for bettering relations with India in economic sense .But here again since when did Pakistan had a sound economic policy.

next in list are the northwestern frontier the hotbed of terrorism and the hiding place of osama bin laden I don't think there's ne need to say more

two other states remain the northeren areas+ azad kashmir or POK as we call thenm here well we pretty much know bout this place the training ground of terrorists from all over the world since afghan ones closed shutters

pakistan ,orkut and me

well first of all let me clarify a few things from the onset
1. i am not a pakistani
2. i am not a pakistan loving peace dove
3. the views expressed here are in no way meant to degrade ppl of the afore said country
4. it's just my conclusion bout things from spending time on orkut(reality may be different)

so here goes i have spent tones of time on orkut in the pst few months n since i am guy i love surfing and finding profiles of interesting females (i think that's but natural if u think otherwise u have the comment space to express ur views). that's when i thought of an experiment bout finding wat pakistan is loike thru the eyes of orkut .i came up with a few definitive conclusions most of the paki ppl on orkut are from karachi it looks like that the internet usage there is even more than in many indian cities and many of these are high school teens that leads to a very interesting conclusion that as we all know that teens are very rebellious n all so it would seem that these teens cant express there feelings or can't talkl the way they want to in open streets again i may be completely Wrong here but it seems the teens here talk mostly on the net .

another interesting fact that came up was the kind lifestyle that ppl in karachi in particular follow i think that they are a bit high on jap anims , nbc sitcoms ,hollywood and bollywood movies . wat that means is that pakistan doesn't really have an entertainment industry of it's own that could cater to it's young population .

one of the most astonishing thing that came on my radar was that most of the pakistani young are going to uk or australia or us for there higher education which again is a throwback from the colonial times that the children of the high and mighty used to go to oxford or cambridge to study. wat these means that pakistani after 58 years of it's existence has not been able to come up with a good higher education system that will help it retain it's best brains .

one of the positive things that i noticed was that the young population in pakistan (atleast the ones on orkut) are pretty liberal and have the grey matter in their heads to avoid the path of terrorism that seems to be the only export item of this country registering positive growth rate

one of the most important thing that i noticed was on the whole that pakistan has a far larger number of good looking women girls watever suits u than india

been there done that

i am tired as hell now with full day of work n with almost no sleep last night . day by day i think i becoming an insomaniac . neways today was another uneventful day we still couldn't get the damn interface correct n there are only four days left till i offitialy start my summer vaccations. i think in this whole wide assed world that i will find some ppl who are like me it's like GOD was hell bent on producing so few varities of these human beings for the fear of them taking over the planet. times have been flying by for me many a times i have felt complete but there always that uncanny feelingof something missing , sometimes hidden deep below the vast ocean of happiness n some times laying barren when that ocean dries up n all that is left is the smelly swamp of despair. But then again someone said very wisely n so i try to be a better man

"The person who tries to live alone will not succeed as a human being. His heart withers if it does not answer another heart. His mind shrinks away if he hears only the echoes of his own thoughts and finds no other inspiration."

it's just that i haven't found neither that heart nor that brain ,every attempt made has met with catastrophic failures may be i repel women .

the dark knight

hey how bout we do a thing the we always do that is talk bout myself(my blog bout my self)

well i look at life in a mirror i is see a man who in the days gone by was happy n his life was simple n ppl liked him alot for wat he was n wat he stood for
but as the times rolled by things around him changed n so did the ppl but i remained the same self that i was but one fine daY things decided to take the nastiest turn ever n i changed from wat i was to be to wat i am now these days i am wat they call a loner i live my life my way with only the very innermost posse standing guard

n wat does the mirror hold for the future well haven't decided yet but i think that i would want to be a man who turns all this negative energy that is inside n around him to do something that's positive though i think i can call myself a misanthrope but all i want to do is to help ppl n thereby helping myself.

i guess that there are many ways to escape from the feelings that are welling up inside u to take retribution at those that have caused u great harm my way is to involve ur self so deeply in work that u forget all bout the outside world well it had worked very well for the past 5 years but i think i am loosing it again it's time to find something new to do to set a goal that is unachievable n to escape from this world to a place that u created where u are the master of u .But then again i think that times will change n that i'll be my sunny self again

somethings missing

I'm not alone, I wish I was.
Cause then I'd know, I was down because
I couldn't find, a friend around
To love me like, they do right now.They do right now
.I'm dizzy from the shopping malls
I searched for joy, but I bought it all
It doesn't help the hunger pains
and a thirst I'd have to drown first to ever satiate
Something's missing

And I don't know how to fix it
something's missing

And I don't know what it is
At all

When autumn comes, it doesnt ask.
It just walks in, where it left you last
And you never know, when it starts
Until there's fog inside the glass around your summer heart
Something's missing
And I don't know how to fix it
something's missing
And I don't know what it is
At all
I can't be sure that this state of mind, is not of my own design
I wish there was an over the counter test, for loneliness.
For loneliness like this.
Something's missing
And I don't know how to fix it
Something's missing
And I don't know what it is
No I don't know what it is
Something's different
And i don't know what it is
No I don't know what it is
Friends -check- Money -check-A well slept -check- Opposite sex -check- Guitar -check- Microphone -check- Messages waiting for me, when i come home-check-How come everything I think I need, always comes with batteries
What do you think it means
How come everything I think I need, always comes with batteries
What do you think it means

Life is a zoo in a jungle

It's been quite a while since i last wrote in
ther's nothin much happenin in life

Life is something that everyone should try at least once

It's not true that life is one damn thing after another; it is one damn thing over and over

well life at campus is same as one semester over n over
nothin really changes at this place the books ,the prophs, the frustrations
all things are like just steam rolled into one huge burger that one keeps having every four months for four years

i have had my three and now ther's just 5 more to go.

oh how i long for someone special in my life and keep searching for her
well as they say it will just happen someday when ur not expecting it n u will never know wat hit u for the rest of ur life.

that'll be all folks
cya around
gotta blaze
