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

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
