Off to watch the Premiere of Elysium in PVR Koramangala. Ironic that i got this chance by “playing” a contest, something that i hate.. Will update the post with my views on the movie later tonight :)
I have added the following books to my library
The last 3 belong to the Bartimaeus Trilogy . Looking forward to reading them. :)
Reading is a tedious task. Requires a lot of interest and effort. But then books are something undescribable. Its an addiction. Once hooked, there is no cure.
In my library, the books that are pending to be read :
1. The Hobbit - JRR Tolkien
2. The Sherlock Holmes - Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
3. The Lost Symbol - Dan Brown
4. The Inferno - Dan Brown
5. Wayne Rooney - My decade in the Premier League - with Matt Allen
6. Wheels of Time - Book 6 - Lord of Chaos - Robert Jordan
7. Wheels of Time - Book 7 - A Crown of Swords - Robert Jordan
8. I am Number Four : The Lost Files - Pittacus Lore.
Congress’s 2009 Campaign Video. Have they delivered? Whats your take? I think they have failed miserably.
kehte hai, kismat hai
waqt aur taqdeer hai
kiska waqt hai yeh aur hai kiski yeh kismat
kaun likhta hai apna taqdeer
khud se kabhi pooch lo, main hoon kaun
waqt ki katputli ya taqdeer ka ghulam
ya kismat ke panno pe likha ek gumnaam shaks
aaj hoon yahaan kal na jaane kahaan
yeh zindagi kisi waqt kismat ya taqdeer se nahi chalti
chalti hai toh bus tumse
ek soch, bus thaan lo
waqt ko apna banao aur taqdeer ko apna ghulam
kismat ki panno pe aisi ek kahaani likh jao
jaise ho pathar pe lakheer
raah tum apne chuno, bus kadam badhate chalo
chalenge sang tere, bus hosalon ko buland rakho
na jukho kabhi na mudo kabhi,
kaante ho raah mein ya ho sajaye phool
aage chalte raho tum
bano uss ki tarah tum, bana na saka koi jise ghulam
bano uss ki tarah tum, jo mita na ho, lakh mitane se
ek aisi aag, joh ruke na rukhe
ek aisi daastaan jo mite na mite
yeh waqt yeh kismat aur yeh taqdeer, bus naam hai, badnaam hai
yeh hai tere dost aur yahi hai tere dushman
yehi hai mere dost iss ki daastan.
Angelina Jolie had a double mastectomy, in case you hadn’t heard. How dare she remove those ticking time bombs from her chest, amiright? Like, hasn’t she learned by now that her body is public domain and we all get to vote on what she does with it? Sheesh, how selfish can ya get.
When i had first saw that Angelina Jolie was trending on Twitter in Bangalore, wondered if she died, but thankfully its only breast reduction. And to those people who are cribbing about that. Sod Off. Her life, Her decision.
Below is the content of the mail i sent to firstname.lastname@example.org after calling the customer care numerous times to no avail.
The transformation from a puny little college boy to something i hardly recognize myself as. Time changes a person in many ways, looking back i can hardly believe how changed i am.
In the arms of clouds,
In the spring of buds,
there came a sight
of chaos and fight.
The land being red,
by hundreds they bled,
The silver by molten lead,
made me shiver in dread.
Misery and loath,
Brothers they both,
One for trouble,
Other makes it double
Tomorrow is a dream,
None cared to see,
In a system of chaos
There is no hope.
A day shall come in years past
A bread for thought seems to be lost
Spreads evil through the veins
Of rich and poor, strong and weak
A world of lies, of evil we live
But who is evil whilst none born with
A truth of men, never told,
The knowledge of women, always forgotten
The love of children, never seen
Love now, whilst you still can,
Tomorrow nothing can,
In a system of chaos
There is no love.
Comes a time of greed
Souls of evil of a different breed
Made of blood shed in vain
Comes a time of only pain.
For the world come fight,
For the children, let us do right,
The dreams of few,
Who never grew,
Lost was their love.
Come lets fight for what we lost,
Comes lets fight for what we got,
The fight is your, join or not,
For what is yours, for long it shall not,
What was last is now past,
Tomorrow is a myth,
Of lies and filth,
In a system of chaos
There is no me and you.
Aug 10 2012 : Finally leaving Chennai after almost 2.5 years of some of the worst and best moments of my life. The worst outnumbering the best by a huge margin.
