Lift kara de...

I’m finally getting down to writing. If you’ve followed this blog for sometime you’ll probably know that most of my posts either say ‘here’s hoping to get back’ or ‘I’m back’ but none actually getting back!

Every time I read a blog especially some of the blogs I follow regularly like here, here and here, I can’t help but be amazed at the flow and the lovely articulation.

Most of the stuff I ever write never makes it to the blog… it makes it successfully to the dustbin. I scribble away furiously for a few minutes and then realize it has no direction. It feels like playing chess without knowing how to reach a checkmate!

Oh man! You fellows are a gifted bunch I tell ya!

I don’t intend for this to be another post about me making a come back to Blogging or any such thing. Maybe all you good folk out here can give me a few pointers on how I need to write.

Ok, horn please...

What next...

I had mentioned before that I’d taken a break so I could prepare for my exams. Now that the exams are done with I was suddenly feeling a void. I didn’t fare well at the exams, that’s a different issue though.

What next…

That’s the question I’ve been asking myself at all times of late.

Instead of wallowing in despair over the past… WHAT NEXT…
Instead of cringing at every mention of past failure… WHAT NEXT
Instead of crying over spilt milk… or should I say… It is fruitless to become lachrymose of precipitately departed lactile fluid… WHAT NEXT
Instead of cribbing about how well I could have done something that has now gone bad… WHAT NEXT

Yes, my friends.. that’s the question… WHAT NEXT!

I'm back!

Hello world…

All the while I was away from the blog, I thought of a hundred different things that I could write about, rant, crib, vent…. Now that I actually sit and hold a pen, all those thoughts disappear into the deep dark recesses of the mind and leave me staring at a blank paper with : ‘I’m back’ written in bold. From trumpets and fog horns it goes down to whine and whimper! Bah!

Though there is still another exam left on the 22nd, I decided not to wait until then.

That’s it…

I’m back…

See you all around…

Adieu, dear blog...for now!

For the next few months I shall not be seen or heard in Blogdom. Just when I was getting a teeny weeny more active on the blog front, I have to stop. I'm going to be on a study break for the next few months as I find my way through the jungle that is medicine and prepare for my entrance exams and manage to place myself in a Masters course of my choice!
Wish me luck my friends!

Omigosh!! Its a miracle!!

Reading the newspapers wouldn't be half as interesting without Paris and Lohans making the headlines. The other half of the interest is from reading news about a person marrying a dog, conducting tree marriages and the like...

Of late the papers are filled with stories of mass hysteria after someone noticed a picture of Jesus Christ 'bleeding' from the heart and in no time someone else declares that Sai Baba opened one eye!

Well, don't jump the gun yet, I strongly believe in miracles. Just last night I said, "Nope, it ain't gonna rain, and if it does I'll get wet... It rained and rained till I decided it was too late to wait and got wet". Somebody up there loves playing! the purpose of this blogpost... 'Sai Baba'.
He opened one eye... Heres my question... "why not both?"
Its like he's playing hide and seek...opens one eye to wonder if his devotees are still there waiting to ask him for that one elusive promotion or to rid their inlaws so that they can lay their little grubby hands on all the moolah!

For what its worth... I've never seen a statue of Saibaba with his eyes closed... Go figure...Have you?
