One more dance?

Choosing a song... mixing more songs... choreographing the dance...hunting for a tape... a cassette... a CD... designing a costume... getting accessories ready... Standing back stage to realize a missing tape... re-recording the whole song with the VARIOUS mixes and breaks... dancing with a mad amount of energy till u think u need some water... running upstairs to make sure the other friends are also having a good time... running back not to miss the last songs form the DJ... pleading the wardens for ONE MORE DANCE before it becomes 11pm... dancing in circles with totally unknown faces... waking the next morning with the worst hangover though u weren't drunk... hunting for b'fast at lunch time... getting together just to talk about how things went... meeting again to see the pictures taken in all chaos... dancing within the rooms cause u don't want to let go of the LAST dance practice u will EVER have together... asking for costumes back for another one month till u gets u…

Accused Ever?

Yesterday was like a 'I ate a bitter fruit' day. A good friend accused me of condemning her religious ways and methods. Yes. Phew! To hear it from her was soooo very uncomfortable and to even continue the conversation and make things clear was worse.

Having lived with people from different castes and religions for over 17 years now, I know the perfect amount of religious talk one can have with another. But I would not do that either. I would never start a religious topic, I might continue someone else s.

The maximum I have contributed to someone's religious talk is when I asked my friend Cynthia how a mariamman festival in her place works. And that was a looonnng night.

From this incident, I learned one thing. However comfortable you are with someone, just don't give them the slightest clue that you are not in favor of some things they do. And stop making practical jokes on them, they will never appreciate them, or if they feel bad - there is no way you will come out goo…

Growing up in the 90s!

Statistics about my computer usage will say I spend 1 out of 5 minutes on Facebook. Hehe! Ask me and I will say I'm doing nothing on FB! I came across something while I was doing nothing. It was a community of those kids who grew in India in the 90s. I read through the list and all I could do was smile. It was like a list of things in my life. I've just copied the whole thing below and removed those I haven't been a pat of!

2) Cricket is almost a religion for you, and you idolize at least one of Kapil Dev/Rahul Dravid/Sachin Tendulkar/Saurav Ganguly - Sachin Tendulkar!

3) You have read at least some Chacha Chaudhary or Tinkle comics - My dad saw me buy it on the train once and he subscribed for Champak, Gokulam and Tinkle!

7) You watched Cartoon Network, and then the late night movies on TNT that came after Cartoon Network ended. - Yes! I remember watching Popeye show and wished it never ended when the TNT network started.

11) A visit to Hot Breads used to mean a special trea…

Wake me up.

It's already been a year?! I still remember how I almost cried watching the finals last year. Oh ya. Its about IPL. Non interested? Well.. I'm like that now. My face looks so troubled now. I'm actually worried I'm not following the biggest international business deals. ;) I cried after the finals last year. I was mad, I was leaving work early to watch the matches. I was feeling bad I missed 2 matches cause I was shifting homes, sorry HOUSES.

This time all I know is SRK has done a remix version of Korbo Lorbo and Shilpa has danced for her Halla bol. How much have I been sleeping. I heard that it was to be held in South Africa and then I dozed off to wake up and hear Jay shout at Venugopal when Deccan Chargers lost to the Daredevils.

I was so jealous of Padhu & Co when they caught the closing ceremony of the IPL last year in Mumbai. I was also saving up to watch it if it happened in India. then that went to hell, so I guess I decided not to be bothered and slept.
