Change .....

So here i am writing a new post, in a new blog on old blog site.

Why did i not post all this while? Well i guess I needed change. I feel the need to box my belongings molecular or digital and let them become antiques. May be someday when I am ready to relive the past i might just open them up. But as of now i just dont want to hold on to my past.

This coming year (2010) I will move to another place for PhD and leave Syracuse for good. Yahh read that again and in between.. “FOR GOOD”. And i hope the day comes soon.

In the last one year I have seen transforming into a dull, boring homosapien. Even a mannequin would be more fun to hangout with. Just to elaborate a bit more, if i were to hang out with myself i would have jumped in Hudson bay in the snowy winter cold of NY just for some excitement.

If I jog my memory a little bit I was never like this before. I always had things to do, crazy friends to have fun with. Every new day was never like a burden in fact it meant a fresh set of 24 hrs to do some new, crazy and fun. High School was magical, Undergard was crazy, Grad School is as dull as dishwater.

Grad School: Well i cant exactly blame Grad School I am the one to be blamed and yes the restricted, monotonous life of a grad student. If I look deep into grad school life, its actually not as bad as i thought i was. I was the one who was making it boring. I realized i am used to a life style ( courtesy: 4 yrs of Undergrad) which is a polar opposite of gard school life. The worst part: “I never adapted, I never learned”. I was trying to live like i used to, but it was near to impossible and used get frustrated, wondering what to do how keep myself all hyper. 1st year went by nicely. In 2nd year my priorities changed. This included a certain person or a group of people, fixing my boring life, finding out what to do and yes of course my career.

It was a mess. Nothing was going right. And one fine day all fell apart. I broke my own rules and allowed people and circumstances to change me. It was a mistake and a lesson well learnt.

Friends: “Forsake not an old friend; for the new is not comparable to him: a new friend is as new wine; when it is old, thou shalt drink it with pleasure”.

Whosoever wrote those line knew what he was writing. I have made friends and a shit load of them, but i know only few of them will always be there when i need them. And I feel I am happy and lucky to have them, a few more to the group would only make me proud and ultra lucky :D.

Although my definition of friendship has changed a lot since i came here. I always thought i was scary judge of character, but I guess I was little early to make that conclusion. I have friends here but i dont know how many of them are my close.

I was taught: “make you own principles and follow them religiously” and ” trust only those who without being selfish will stand up for you”.

I forgot them all. Did wrong things and trusted fake, selfish people.

Anyways whats done is done. So i will not change but adapt. From now i will do everything that i used to do and always wanted to do but for some odd reason never ventured into.

My plans for coming few year:

* Start playing my guitar again.

* Buy a car and go around US. (I really miss my Undergrad bike adventures)

* Every year I’ll go to 2 countries for a week each.

* Start writing again.

* Spend less time on computer and do some real things

* Study 4 days a week and work my a** off. But not become a nerd. The remaining 3 days do all the above things plus party :D.

Easier said than done, but i will do my best to keep up. !!

CHEERS !!!!!!!!

10 mins out in the cold !!! @ -23*C ........ partially naked !!

This is something I do every winter here in Syracuse. Whenever the temp goes below -20*C i go out at-least for 5 min in t-shirt and shorts. And within those 5 min even my balls freeze.

The winter cold is killing me !!!!

just went out !!!

If You Can’t Make It, Steal It

( click on the pic to enlarge it )

MicroSoft, MicroSoft .... !!!!! they just had to do it. I think they should change there name ..


Windows 7 the new trash bag in an Armani suit will come out some time soon. There were rumors that this would ( to some extnt ) look like Mac OS X. But i never believed them. I used to say why would MS put so much effort and money and bring out something really new and better just to tag themselves AGAIN as high tech/ high class thugs and or theives.

Look at the pic. The desktop looks exactly like Mac OS X ( the Dock is missing thought ... they will eventually put it there in later versions of Windows 7 .. i guess ).

Loveleen ek Joke bataoo !!!!

*) Q: How do you get a one-armed man out of a tree?
A: You wave to him.
*)A blonde went to the appliance store sale and found a bargain. "I would like to buy this TV," she told the salesman.
"Sorry, we don't sell to blondes," he replied.

She hurried home and dyed her hair, then came back and again told the salesman, "I would like to buy this TV."

"Sorry, we don't sell to blondes," he replied.

"Darn, he recognized me," she thought.

She went for a complete disguise this time; haircut and new color, new outfit, big sunglasses, then waited a few days before she again approached the salesman. "I would like to buy this TV."

"Sorry, we don't sell to blondes," he replied.

Frustrated, she exclaimed, "How do you know I'm a blonde?"

"Because that's a microwave," he replied.

*)A married couple was in a terrible accident where the woman's face was severely burned. The doctor told the husband that they couldn't graft any skin from her body because she was too skinny. So the husband offered to donate some of his own skin. However, the only skin on his body that the doctor felt was suitable would have to come from his buttocks.

The husband and wife agreed that they would tell no one about where the skin came from, and requested that the doctor also honor their secret. After all, this was a very delicate matter.

After the surgery was completed, everyone was astounded at the woman's new beauty. She looked more beautiful than she ever had before! All her friends and relatives just went on and on about her youthful beauty!

One day, she was alone with her husband, and she was overcome with emotion at his sacrifice.

She said, "Dear, I just want to thank you for everything you did for me. There is no way I could ever repay you."

"My darling," he replied, "think nothing of it. I get all the thanks I need every time I see your mother kiss you on the cheek."

*) I immediately went out and bought a book on anger management. And now I have that book, and I don't know if I'll get to the book. But I'm certainly excited about the day where I can't find the book, and I get to say, 'Where the hell is my anger management book?!'

Winter is Weird !!!

I used to hear that in winters your brain doesnt work. When i say work it means "mental exercise" (@least that is what i thought). But !! But !! i never thought this included " clumsiness ".
And if i were to write a book on "winter acts" which i have seen and njoy people do ( this also includes cryptmaster )i could easily win booker's prize for a comic book ( if such an award exists).

Here is the list:
*) I was about to put washing power in my food insted of salt.
*) ( my usual act ) put my cold coffee in microwave
*) I am always in dilema .. ( for the whole winter season )
*) I also suffer from amneisa ... in winters ofcourse, just in case u guys doubt the length of it duration.
*) I do and re-do things ... ( even if they are "perfecto" ).
*) I eat alot .. u can call me a Pig ( in winters Only !!! ).
*) December is a month of pranks ... ( last december i mailed my US frds that i am going to india. They all called their parents and told them to get some stuff ready for me to bring them. I later .. after a 15 odd days told them ... i was kidding :P... and back home all their stuff was ready for a trip to US of A ..... This year some chick called my lab , mistaking it to be some other office of my university ... i kept her on hold for say about 15 min, before hanging up :P )
*) I laugh alot.. even on serious situations.
*) My obsession with knives reaches another level. ( i am not a serial killer )
*) The 3-4 fts of snow outside hipnotises me sometimes .. and i wanna go out and roll in the snow " NAKED". ( i once did such a thing ... but i had a t-shirt and shorts on... only @ -28*C )

I am tierd now .... enough of self-humiliation.

Boredom + Irritation - Jump - 2Walk - Naagin - etc = Happy Man !!!!

This is not new @all. I am BORED !!
In the last two weeks two of my trips have been cancelled. First one (to Ohio State University, ... Indian Ocean was performing and I really wanted to go BUT !!!... ) it was me who cancelled it because of some nonsense project of some shity course ( which i regret taking ... ) the second a rock climbing expedition: that was cancelled because some because the organizer thought that not many people signed up for it " Lets cancell it " !!!. ( I got a mail for the rock climbing thing getting cancelled ..... the first words that came off were " I KEEEEEEEEEL YOU " ...from the dead terrorist : Achmend act " :P )

So coming back to my boredom !! I was do irritated and bored yesterday ... that i could have :

* Jumped off Link hall ( the engineering building ) without parachute .. just for excitement
* Walked in " the cold November Rain @ -3*C " for 45 min without an umbrella or a jacket (I was @ my friends place ( E. colvin st ) which was a approx 45 min walk from my house..just in case you guys r wondering y 45 min )
*Walked in the middle of the road for abt a mile ..and irritate people. ( which i kind of did .... for 100 mt only ... but guess what. not a single car came .... dammm )

Remember Remember the "5th" of November !!!

Yes !!!! Remember it ... not because it Obama became the president of US ( well if you want you can mark it that way ) but because the 5th of November is the day when coincidentally one man or few people try to change something, SOMETHING that large enough to affect the lives of not hundreds but millions of people.

Two events mark the "5th" of November as a " the day of Changes ". One event is of course the election of Obama as the president of USA. The first African American to get the highest office in USA. ( just in case you are wondering .... " whats the big deal "? ... the ans. It is a big deal ... for a person who is not tagged as "white" to become the most poweful man in USA .... is a "biggg deal". )

This is " THE change ". !!!!

The second event dates back to 1605, in the era of King James 1 of England. It was on this day
"the 5th of November" a man named Guy Fawkes decided to blow up the HOUSE OF LORDS and end the touturous era of King James 1. But he was unsucessful. !!!

Though his attempt... did create a revolt against King James 1. ( again the "chnage" )

Hail Floyd ... Hail Rick Wright !!!!!!!!!!

Another legend passed away.
I didnt get the news till 17th, ....... thanks to orkut i found out the Wright died. ( its not like if i had found out a bit earlier i would have gone to his funeral ... but still ).
Its sad ... anyhow !!!!

I was listening to few The Doors songs when i found out about wright's death. The moment i read it " the end " started playing ...... now this is what i call timing !!!! This was like one of Sly's weird incidents, not the Deja vu ones .... but one of the weird ones.

May Rick Wright ...... " Rest In Peace " !!!!
I some how feel .... posting the lyrics of ... " the end " !!!!
so here is .... " the end " : doors .

This is the end
Beautiful friend
This is the end
My only friend, the end

Of our elaborate plans, the end
Of everything that stands, the end
No safety or surprise, the end
Ill never look into your eyes...again

Can you picture what will be
So limitless and free
Desperately in need...of some...strangers hand
In a...desperate land

Lost in a roman...wilderness of pain
And all the children are insane
All the children are insane
Waiting for the summer rain, yeah

Theres danger on the edge of town
Ride the kings highway, baby
Weird scenes inside the gold mine
Ride the highway west, baby

Ride the snake, ride the snake
To the lake, the ancient lake, baby
The snake is long, seven miles
Ride the snake...hes old, and his skin is cold

The west is the best
The west is the best
Get here, and well do the rest

The blue bus is callin us
The blue bus is callin us
Driver, where you taken us

The killer awoke before dawn, he put his boots on
He took a face from the ancient gallery
And he walked on down the hall
He went into the room where his sister lived, and...then he
Paid a visit to his brother, and then he
He walked on down the hall, and
And he came to a door...and he looked inside
Father, yes son, I want to kill you
Mother...i want to...fuck you

Cmon baby, take a chance with us
Cmon baby, take a chance with us
Cmon baby, take a chance with us
And meet me at the back of the blue bus
Doin a blue rock
On a blue bus
Doin a blue rock
Cmon, yeah

Kill, kill, kill, kill, kill, kill

This is the end
Beautiful friend
This is the end
My only friend, the end

It hurts to set you free
But you'll never follow me
The end of laughter and soft lies
The end of nights we tried to die

The Week !!!!

In the last 10 days i have seen my mood flicker like anything. It started with 2 major disappointments. By major i mean ... they were in real sense mental breakdown kinds. Then came the time when i was " ME " again. I felt like i was in Nagpur again. Those were fun days where i spent more time out on the roads and in CCD than flipping the pages of my course book. And not to mention the crazy things we did ( Parsee graveyard was one of those .... and i hope everybody remembers what we had planned for the Corn Hub restaurant ).

I was back doing everything i love ... !!!!

But i guess good times dont last long. I saw two things: one last thursday and one this thursday. Some how i couldnt stop thinking about these two events. One of these i cant discuss. The other ( 25th sept one ) just felt as bad as the other.

It was 1pm, i was having lunch in a restaurant in the university. There was a garbage outside, a homeless guy with a trolly full of his clothes and random stuff came, dug out a box of fries and a bottle of coke from the grabage box( which had only few drops of coke left in it ). He gulped all the fries, drank all the coke that was left ........ and I just couldnt stop staring at him. Eventually i stopped eating my stuff.

I looked around and saw about 20 people enjoying their lavish meal and "there" was a man who just had few sticky little fries as a solid lunch ( which looked like " the meal of the day" for him ) and few drops of coke to quench his thirst.

Imagine !!!!!

Senior : Aman

It was around 1:30 am, people were drinking, dancing etc. Me, Aman and Vaibhav we on the couch tired after dancing. Vaibhav was completely drunk ... OUT , STONED !!!!!

And we all know what people do when they get drunk. Vaibhav i am assuming had a friend or a crush on a girl named " Tamanna ".

Vaibhav ( eyeing the same girl ) : I have to talk to Tamanna .... ( he get up !! )
Aman ( trying to pull Vaibhav back ) : Vaibhav ... shut up and squat !!! she is not Tamanna .... let her go !!!

Vaibhav: I know she is Tamanna .... plzzzz i just need ot talk to her !!!
Ashish: ( still laughing @ the scene Vaibhav is creating )

Aman : dude !!! they all different girls ..... and they are not certainly Tanmanna !!! so ditch them !!!

Vaibhav ( again get up and walks to the hall ): Tamanna .... i am comming !!!! :P

Blood Suckers !!!!

I have had blood tests like a zillion times and normally the docs take only few milliliters of my blood. ( when i say few i mean single digit measure and that to less that 5 ).

But this was the second time when these innocent blood suckers took more that that was required.
I was ill for like a week. I went to the university health services for my blood test. The nurse there took 2 full big test tubes of my blood for just one test.

By 2 full big test tube i mean .. around 25 ml of blood. Dammmm

I know its for free but that doesnt give these white coat creatures to suck it like leeches and mosquitoes.

The day I Entered My House ............................. ( wait for it )

as a thief !!!!!!!!!!

The is how the story started. One of my room-ates decided to have a leak, he twisted the bathrooms knob but he realized that it was locked. So he did the obvious .... he knocked and asked the bathroom occupant to hurry up. But surprisingly no body replied and then he noticed that the bathroom light was also off.
So he checked our rooms and noticed that ... none of us was actually in the bathroom. We all talked and after a while we concluded the some how the door got locked from the inside.

And there was only one way to get into the bathroom .... a slit ( 1 ft by 1.5 ft ) which we call " Window ".

The photographs show the " break in " point. ( the window on the extreme right in the first photograph ).

Me being the skinner had to go in and open the door.

It was fun !!!!! :)
