Yesterday, one of my bro’s classmate’s family was shot dead in Orissa. The classamate was shot too but he is not dead yet. He struggles for his life in some hospital in Bhubaneswar as I write this. If you think this is sad, let me tell you what is worse – his dad killed the family and then shot himself. That kind of thing is scary. That kind of thing is even more scary when you realize that the dad was not some lunatic (at least until he commited the crime) but an IAS officer! Holy fucking shit! I so hope the kid survives. But if he does, how would he ever be able to move on?
During my Meghalaya trip last month, I took a flight to Kolkata both for the onwards and the return journey. During both times, the aircraft shook like shit while cutting through the clouds. It vibrated and jerked more than the usual. On both occasions, I really didn’t mind the flight crashing down though I felt bad that if that happened, others might also die. Why do I have to try so hard to look for a reason to live everyday that the mere prospect of an accidental death makes me desire for it. And believe me, there wasn’t even a hint of depression when I was in the flight, nor is there any eeriness even now as I write this. I just thought I would share this little discovery to see if there are others who too aren’t too serious about life in their day to day life.
Sach Ka Saamna is awesome. I like the way they bare all that they can on the show. Pretty kickass. Since they show it at 10 pm, I have never seen it on TV. I checked out some episodes on YouTube yesterday and today. I was impressed. I wonder how the guys behind the screen manage to dig the hit-the-nail questions – there obviously is a studd research team that digs all the dirt from a contestant’s family, friends and more especially – from his / her neighbours! It’s incredible that in the orginal – Moment of Truth – no one has so far been able to crack the jackpot! Someone bring on Raja Harishchandra please. What do I think of myself? I think I will straight away crack the 1 crore man. In fact, I think it’s easier for any bachelor to go for the kill. No wonder, they only catch people who have either wives, kids or the like – such wo/men have a life that can be ruined. But what do I have? LOL! They would never call someone like me on the show. Sigh!
The beauty of Dhan Te Nan is that the since the entire song is in the C scale, when I play it on my mouthorgan, I hardly have to use the changer! No wonder, I am loving blowing this song. Seen Shahid’s baady in the movie – pretty sexy no? I am so glad I would look like that soon (like in a year may be 😛 ). A long period of dormancy had insued in the running gymming routine since a few days prior to the Meghalaya trip. Finally, I was able to get up early enough to hit the gym today – so August looks healthy. I am looking forward to run in the Kaveri Half marathon in September. I would have loved to participate in the Mumbai marathon too (in Jan 2010) but I figured out last week to my horror that the half marathon registration was already over. Marathon registration was still on when I last checked up the site but I don’t think I would be ready for 40+ kilometers by Januaray.
Okies dokies, enough of update shupdate. Go phodo some gullak fullak till I return.
