Pointless !!

29 Mar

This post is utterly pointless, more pointless than Zimbabwe and Kenya’s world-cup league match.

The reason me is writing this, well because I am jobless, yes more jobless than Sreesanth.

I wonder if any one actually is going to read this, of course some one will, even Netherlands and Ireland got spectators at Eden Garden.

that’s it don’t feel like writing any more … hope saurabh ganguly feels the same … 😉

A Roller Coaster Ride – book review

22 Feb

I don’t write book reviews, hell I don’t even read a lot of books. But this particular book kind of forced me to do so.

 

Few days back I was browsing through infibeam and came across this book thought it would be a good time-pass for a boring journey. How terribly wrong I was.

It was a big bag of cliches with really bad proof reading. I mean I know I am not a grammarian myself, rather really bad at it but people at Sristhi Publishers have surpassed me hands down.

And to add to my frustration there were really really positive review for it on flip-kart and Infibeam, but when someone called it a masterpiece … a part of me literally died.

 

The writer of the book, seems to be very confused so he fused all the mirch-masala possible in this book, and ended up cooking a dish which doesn’t even look good, leave alone the taste.

 

Story : well I tried thrice writing it down … but fell short of words to describe to stupidensiocity of it. (of course that’s a made up word, sue me)

 

Why Am I so frust : Because I being a cheap, bought the original book and being lazy, read the whole book.

 

I strongly recommend you to chop your hands with a machete before you lay them on this “masterpiece”.

 

PS:- I don’t know how to write a book review, you may refer to this for some sensible and rest nonsense reviews.

PS:– My apologies to the writer and the publisher for such negativity, but Yeh! It was that bad.

Moving on to ….

15 Dec

Funny thing about life is … that the joke is always on you. Although how ever intelligent a person be, almost everyone makes a hue and cry over it … unless of course he can laugh at himself.

5 days back when we were told that, our employers have no money left to sustain their operations in India. Better start packing your bags.

The usual reaction …

Tension … and stuff … you know stress and all ….

took some time to Settle down …

Then I realized … That it certainly is a funny joke isn’t it … like those “road runner shows“, As soon as you catch the road runner a big hammer falls on your head.That close we were when the funds ran out, and that’s the thing with start-ups, YOU NEVER KNOW !!

I am not sad about loosing the shares I earned … Coz, I earned the skill which I can en-cash all my life. It’s some thing else…

In the words of Tim Canterbury ….

” The people you work with are people you were just thrown together with. I mean, you don’t know them, it wasn’t your choice. And yet you spend more time with them than you do your friends or your family. But probably all you have in common is the fact that you walk around on the same bit of carpet for eight hours a day. ”

Although in our case … most of the time it was more than eight hours …. 🙂

PS:- I don’t know why I wrote this post … But at least I wrote.

Happy people on the Facebook

15 Nov

Before I start, let me tell you … I’ve written this assuming that you know the saying “the grass is always greener on the other side” and the social networking website Facebook.


I believe most (except for the self satisfied narcissists and Mark Zuckerberg) of the Facebook users see the others’ updates and think to themselves, these people have so much going on in their life.

Of course not exactly these lines, but yeh most of the vella (jobless), office se thakela (job tired) ya chila hua kela (banana peel jobbed) resort to the website, mostly stalking old love, brag about their phoran trip, post their ugly picture edited and posted on empire-state building with a graffiti artist standing beside it, watching videos stupid people poking themselves in the eye …. and this is just the beginning of the list.

But the point is, we all (when I say we all I m speaking on behalf of all guys in their mid twenties) still feel like giving a nutcracker kick to the lafandoo (a term I don’t really know the English word for) from school for posting a picture with what appears to be a rather better looking gal, totally out of his league.

“See, even he’s doing better … I got a degree from MIT but he got the girl …”

Some times I feel, most of these people are like small time MBA graduates, and they are marketing their life … see who can portray their one’s better than other. And of course, comments and likes are your earnings … of course they don’t know where the apogee to this is ….

 

untidy cleanliness

20 Sep

My response to every one who accuse me of keeping my room untidy …

सफाई तो बस पल दो पल की साथी है,
आज करो कल फिर चली जाती है |
गन्दगी ही तो अपनी प्रिये है,
समय के साथ बढती ही जाती है ||

For those who can’t read devnagri:-

safai to bas pal do pal ki saathi hai
aaj karo aur kal phir chali jaati hai …
gandagi hi toh apni priye hai …
samay ke saath saath badati jaati hai !!

PS: thanks to Nnilpa, for provoking me to write this … 🙂

The Woodcutter story

12 Jul

I am sure most of you would have heard this story when you were kids. Still to wipe the corrosion off the junk … here it is again …

One day, while a woodcutter was cutting a branch of a tree above a river, his axe fell into the river. When he cried out, the Lord appeared and asked, “Why are you crying?”


The woodcutter replied that his axe has fallen into water, and he needed the axe to make his living.

The Lord went down into the water and reappeared with a golden axe. “Is this your axe?” the Lord asked.

The woodcutter replied, “No.”

The Lord again went down and came up with a silver Axe. “Is this your axe?” the Lord asked.

Again, the woodcutter replied, “No.”

The Lord went down again and came up with an iron Axe. “Is this your axe?” the Lord asked.

The woodcutter replied, “Yes.”
The Lord was pleased with the man’s honesty and gave him all three axes to keep, and the woodcutter went home happy.

If I would have been in place of Lord(which happens to be my nick too)… the conversation would have been more like this …

Woodcutter : Boo hoo hoo … my axe is gone …  boo hoo hoo

Lord (that would be me) : What happened my son ? why are you crying ?

Woodcutter : Blah blah blah ! I was cutting wood, (more blah) dropped my axe in the river. Boo hoo hoo ….

Lord : WTF !! seriously ? Are you really that stupid ?

Woodcutter : (surprised look on his face)

Lord : Seriously dude ? Out of all the trees in the jungle you chose the one which is beside the river. And you chose that branch which was just above the deepest part of the fricking river.

How were you planning to take those branches back home, huh Einstein ? I mean come on … this wood is all wet and weak … A liter of patrol wont be able to burn it.

You know what! You are the biggest moron on the face of earth, no wonder you are poor.

Woodcutter : (f**ked expression on face)

Lord : Don’t give me that look knuckle head … I was in the middle of some thing Godly ! The heaven was so close and then you just blew it up … you know it take many human-years to built mood for me. Aaarrrgghh !!

Evidently, you are a big failure as woodcutter, it’s too demanding job for your microscopic brain, isn’t it ? There’s only one job left for you to do, go enroll for an MBA. Managerial job is the only one  you’ll be successful at. And you’ve got right skills for it … don’t you.

loosing your axe, because of your stupidity … and now asking me (engineer) to fix it for you. And for what ? so that you can f**k this up again ….

now get out of my sight, before I shred you into pieces with my gold and silver axe…

Lord : (to self) Yeh … My axe collection is now complete with the final iron one … Now I’ll show menaka and ramabha … my AXE effect ….

PS: Back to blogging after a hiatus … feels good … had loads going on …
