Zinda Hoon Main ................

Dont get disappointed I know many of you bloody swines were opening champagne bottles treating your girlfriends thinking i left this place.....but nahin mere munna main kahin ni gaya.
Oh my god i m back ......the reason is yeah i was busy ...or may be since last few weeks I m living a life which is so complete that i almost forgot this place...but then when the joy and happiness of life become too much to handle then it becomes kinda necessary to share your thoughts and feelings.
So came in the New year and sadly Saddam Hussain didnt make it but all of us who survived the pollution of cities, mosquitoes of joka land and Salaam-e-Ishq we had to go through the stupid rituals of making re-solutions. I change and break my resolutions as if its the resolutions of my passport size photograph. Which BTW i had to click 10 times before getting a pic which can't be used to prove the Darwin's theory of evolution that we all evolved from Chimps.
In the mean time i turned 22 there is nothing great about that coz its not a milestone age like 21. At 21 i was so elated that now main legally kissi ladki ko bhaga sakta hoon. Well ek saal ho gaya hai n abhi tak ladkiyan mujhe hi bhaga deti hain apne aas pass se. Then at 21 u can officially go to a pub but "Mind it Chinnaswamy!! u cant have a drink". To bhains ki aankh andar jaake kya LEMON Water peeyoge??? BUt coz of my Sunil Shettiesh macho looks i hv been going to pubs since the age of 18 :) hence no joy on this front too.
I love hanuman ji and there are two moments in my life when i remember him the most......
The first one is whenever i m down with fever, when chicken biryani tastes like karele ka saag prepared by my sister.
The second one is whenever exams are around. And as it happens in my life all the time here also i will miss the first opportunity and concentrate on the last one.
I am as scared as Munaf patel facing brett lee but i try to look calm and composed. Its really difficult to bring out my fear and terror in words. Its not a new thing for me to go unprepared in the examinations but this time this unpreparedness has been elevated to new heights by me.....
But do i regret it no ofcourse not.

But here standing today when i look back i realize its almost 1 year n within 15 days i m gonna be half manager. I knw it sounds so cliche but smtimes time flies by and then you just need to stop, turn arnd n have a look just to ensure u didnt miss anything.
Ek saal pehle iit bombay ka ek backbencher day-dreamer walked into IIM JOka ka campus with dreams in his eyes and strong determination. Soon i realized I cant fool myself there are few things in this world which are impossible like mamta banerjee talking sense, tushar kapoor actually doing what he is supposed to do : ACTING, and me studying. It just took me few weeks to understand the basic fact that i cant stay awake in classes, i cant make notes and i cant study before exams. My one night stands before exams are the only way i can do anything till now i have successfully sailed through ... when i say successful don't get overexcited, I m no Cracku here, this chap is still the same who hides his face whenever a prof asks a question or run for his life as soon as a conversation shifts to any topic remotely related to acads. Its just that i managed to get No Fail grades till nw and No prof has till nw threatened me.
This place taught me lots of things... Now i can actually speak in bangla ki " mujhe bangla ni aati (AAMI bangla bhashi badhi na), now i know never trust a road side barber, now i know how a small message from a friend can bring a glow in your eyes in the middle of that torturing lecture where the prof is teaching you ways to minimize the time duration of an auto assembly line...
Love, fresh air and good friends are hard to find these days but this place gave me all. I m having the best days of my life .....

same notorious and witty ladoo is back, the only difference is that this time he doesn't have linda or narbhakshi around :P, people might think he is being modest,but I m sure he doesn't have many choices thats why he is making himself a target!

Łóòň Ġãĺ said...

lol am backkkkkk on ur blog .. it was good to find you ... am sure u've forgotten me though .. ex- cheesy termite if that helps? I begged u for an orkut invitation .. and u didnt send me one *raises an eyebrow*

Chalo maaf kiya!

lol it was a long long post (u always write long ones) but an interesting one nevertheless!

so u're in kolkata now .. i see ... its funny when people say "I do not speak English" here .. but a few days bck i was in Italy where no one actually speaks English ... so comes handy is the sign language which is ofcourse after u tell them italians "Non parlo l'italiano" bole toh "I do not speak italian. "

I havnt ever tasted karele ka saag .. but by the sound of it with a little imagination .. i feel like throwin up :-S

And last minute crammers ... aren't we all? We wait until the adrenaline rush .. and thats when we do our best :D
And i know u IIT ka baccha .. ppl like u shud be banned from the society for being so modest! x-(
