Weekend masti - 21-23 Sept

Sunday night

Chilled out and lazied around with such a great weekend - and dinner was at CP so ending was also awesome...I don't want to go office!!!!!


Saturday night

Undoubtedly one of the best nights of my life - the day started with me searching for a song - which I just got to see a glimpse in Lolita Tribute video on Youtube...and ultimately I got the song....its definitely one of the best songs and in my top 10 most fav lists...I am posting here the video of Lolita (which also is one of the most fav videos of mine)...




and then happened the best experience of the day...Aakriti wanted to see the cricket match and she had a great plan (and I confess I was not party to her plan initially...how stupid of me!) ...we ( Megha, Rajit, Aakriti and me) decided to watch the T20 match between Australia and India in Shangri la since all the other places and lunges were booked. And we had a time of our lives.

For every six by Yuvi and every Australian wicket, we had never shouted like this!

Being escapist

The thought prevails...the idea never dies....the attitude transforms....the perceptions palpitate to change..but what makes them do it?....is it passion for doing something? When was the last time you had felt so obsessed with doing something...really possessed to get or do something?...when was the last time you felt like changing the whole world around yourself and start from zilch...from the very zilch ...

All of us...sometime or the other...feel like stopping and re-starting the phenomenon called life ...for the want of that feeling for someone....for getting rid of some memories...sometimes you win...sometimes you lose...escapism starts when you lose...when you lose to keep your head on something or someone ....when you want to do something from heart but forced to something from mind...when you want to relive a portion of past and try changing it...or when you want to let go of your present (at least for a time being) and feel reinvigorated...I call that as escapism...It is not …

To Kill A Mockingbird

I liked the way the book depicted a serious tale in such a simple manner - may be that is what makes it most read books after The Bible.
While I was reading this book I also read about some interesting things about the book...Harper Lee had depicted a nearly true story in this book - her father himself was a lawyer and had undergone similar situations like Atticus Finch ...Scout was Harper lee herself...Dill- The legendary Truman Capote...who was Harper's childhood neighbor...

I also saw Capote (2005) movie and was further drawn into the world of Truman Capote and Harper Lee...



Who actually wrote the book? Harper Lee or Capote? Why has Harper Lee not published any other book post this? Why does she not talk or give even a single interview on this book?

Lolita: Vladimir Nabokov

Finished this book on 17th September, 2007 right in the morning 3:00 AM...which brings me to office on a Monday morning drowsy and full of sleep...but I am thrilled...I can feel the obsession, the frustration of Humbert Humbert of losing his true love again...well most of the people have interpreted this art of literature as an erotic piece...to sell their movies, plays, editions...etc but no it is not an erotic piece of literature ...as in the foreword, there is not even a single sentence which pores out of any word or dialogue which can make it a pornographic read.

In one line, it is a story of a boy called Humbert who loses his love Annabel at the age of around 12-13 and such powerful was his obsession for that girl that the boy remained in love with her, even after she was dead. He started seeing her in other similarly aged young girls (which can be termed as inappropriate, immoral etc) and when he sees a girl in his new rented place, girl to whom he gets easily access to ...becom…

When...

When you wake up over a weekend to find blunder with a bank account - when you find yourself thinking - some shallow chaotic random thoughts - working on laptop on some bizzare topics with no particular objective, when you can not watch any movie, when you can sense something was not right - bad mood to strike a composed look, when you are searching for something on internet and not getting it, you get the sense it is not your lucky weekend - and then something changes all of a sudden - seeing that radiant face on the rear mirror of bike with that all-is-fine smile and that you-are-special look with that beautiful voice singing a nice song - you just realise what you missed in the last two days.

PS: You sing great! ;))

Song playing rightnow : Underneath your clothes - Shakira (Laundry Service)

Weekend 09-10 Sept 2007

Aakriti - admiring the beautiful sunset!
Piturseque sunset at Shogi
Weekend was more of a networking one for me - called up lot of friends, sent mails and chatted with lot of friends and stayed within the boundaries of my room. Aakriti went to Shogi (near Shimla) and had loads of fun - as can be seen from the pictures above.
