Getaway

Goli maar bheje mein...



***Sparkle***





Hum aur Tum









Ek tha thoonth






Aaj khush to bahot hoge tum...






K2 did you tell me about this?






Guess who was there too... :)

Morning...

Woke up very early today. Finally I made up on all the sleep deficit that had accumulated over the past few days. It has been a long time since I wrote something on my blog. I was busy with the presentation which didn't go well. And after it got over I was left with many thoughts which I wanted to sort out myself. I know what went wrong from my side and what needs more attention. I will work on it. Learning from my mistakes...but I haven't learnt how not to make mistakes.

Picture courtesy: SenthilI have climbed this far and so I will manage to cross the next few steps and the hurdles that come in the way. There were so many things which came in my mind in the last 2 weeks and I made a mental note that I would write about it here, but now I have forgotten most of them. Also, I have not seen a movie for a long time. My "to watch" list includes Slumdog Millionare, DevD and Luck by Chance. Just came to know that Luck by Chance has Aamir Khan in a cameo. More reason for m…

Time Machine

An old friend is in town. I have been excited since the day I came to know that she will be visiting Bombay. It is always fun to be back with old friends. In the 7-8 hours that three of us spent together today, we did everything from sharing updates in our lives to exchanging gossip stories. Actually I didn't have any gossip stories, instead I was just listening most of the time.

There are few friends who are both elder and wiser than me... This one fits that criteria :)

After spending five and a half year at the same institute for finishing this degree, obviously I hardly have any of my seniors around. Even many of my batch mates have left the place. And currently I am one of the seniors in the department. So I am bound to be excited when one of my seniors is here. I have been jumping around and telling all that "Didi is here" :). After such a long time I am getting a chance to behave like a kid and now with her around I can even throw a tantrum. It is not that I don'…

Idiosyncratic me

Avoiding people when I am in a bad mood is not a new phenomenon for me. I have been doing this for quite sometime. I can feel that it is worsening and my tolerance for people is decreasing. At such moments I just try to stay alone. I don't want to get irritated and scream at people just because I am not in the best mood.


These days, I would say that I am in a contemplative mood and not actually in a bad mood. Too many things on my mind and then there is a major presentation to give in 2 weeks. So, I am just trying to keep myself away from anything which might irritate me.


I was just thinking that with every passing day I am becoming less and less adaptable. I mean I am living alone and have become accustomed to this situation. I don't have any other responsibility apart from my own. I make my own plans. If one of my experiment is coming in the way of an outing, i just manipulate my work somehow and take time out for the outing. Nobody is there who can ask me to change my plans a…

2 weeks to go...

Nothing is coming in its way now.

I cleaned up my room (more importantly my fan) and now the environment is conducive for me to sit and study and speculate. All the clutter is also gone (or hidden). I just need to concentrate and study now. I will do it...


Another thing which was pending was the review for Ghajini. I finished writing that too (see below). Now my mind is free for other more important things.


Also, my mood is a little better now. After last week's failed experiment I was feeling so low. I didn't do anything except deciding what reagents and other materials are required to make this experiment a success. The cheapest and best option costs Rs. 30,000 only. Prepared the indent and kept it on boss's table with shaking hands, praying that she doesnt scream at me and blame me for the failed experiment. Like most of the time, she didn't say anything, just signed the paper and gave it to me. That was the war I won yesterday. I felt like a school kid trying to get …

Ghajini

Finally I am writing about the movie I waited for so long. It took so much time because I was searching for a decent photograph of my hero :). Of course that's not the case. First of all I managed to watch the movie on 25th itself. How that happened is a very big story which i am not going to write here but it was a big adventure in a strange city. Had i been in Bombay, I would have watched the preview on 24th. So, my record didn't break. Just that instead of first show, I saw the second show of the movie.


The peak of joy was getting the tickets and then with every scene the joy diminished. :(


If Aamir Khan accepts a movie, there is a certain kind of expectation from it. This one was completely disappointing. It is a complete 'masala-movie' for the regular brainless-movie-goer. Why did he do this? It is not that the Tamil version was so great that he got tempted to do the remake.


No point talking about the story here. I think everybody knows this "revenge saga of a m…
