Story from the closet

Me and the two Anil's, we used to go cycling after the school gets over. It was like we were the great explorers and no one will know about places if we do not find them. Mostly our trip used to start from the shady end of the colony. It was the only place where there were three story buildings while all across there were only two stories and for the highest rung single story. This was the place where your mom would not like you to go. Well our journey used to start from there. We used to take the narrow mud road "pugdundi" to the place called Bapugram for whatever reasons. And from there our fairy tale trip used to start. We used to cross a school which was not more than one room. But we never used to wonder how they could be teaching in this one room school because all that mattered to us at that time was the small playground in front of the school and the well in the ground that was very deep. From there we used to follow the kaccha road till it used to turn into pebble road. We used to stand on the paddles not sitting on the seat of the bicycle in order to balance it as the pebbles used to slip over one another. It was a steep down slope filled with pebbles and at times you had to move towards the edges away from the pebbles or else the speed will increase and brakes wont work. With all that maneuvering of the cycle we used to finally reach step farms at the side of the small stream. This stream was just few meters wide and a few meters deep with less than a feet deep water in it. With the sound of the water steam in the background we used to cross the step farms on the narrow pugdundi between two farms. On one side farm will be at level and on other it will be down .. well thats what makes them step farms. Soon the pugdundi takes you to the place where a tree trunk was put to cross the stream. Now this was even more tricky. The tree trunk was not flat and you have to carry the bicycle on your shoulders while balancing on the trunk.. or else you are down in the water. While crossing the stream, the sound of water used to grow louder and louder as if a whole lot of water is coming towards you but you can not see it. As we used to get off the trunk taking a sigh of relief that we made it; there was another even narrow fast flowing stream. Thankfully they had kept flat planks on it so that you can cross it and can not see the water wheel rotating. The loud sound of water was coming from the water mill that was used as a flour mill I guess. Once you cross the water mill another pugdundi will take you directly into the wide stream flowing gently with just a feet deep water. As you move towards the source of the water it used to get deeper and deeper. And finally you see the water coming out from the roots of a large tree. Some underground water stream decided to emerge at a place where a tree has taken its roots. So watching the water flowing out from the roots of this tree... you rarely see water so clean and transparent that you can see each stone lying at the bottom of it. In the water small fishes used to move scared from all the kids playing in it or rather may be they got used to of all the kids coming over daily and just to amuse them used to run helter skelter. We used to go to the edge ride our bicycle with full speed in to the stream till it used to get deeper and deeper and you are not able to paddle further. At this point of time we used to jump into the stream scaring all the small fishes. The fairy tale used to go on for few hours when it used to get late and we had to rush back to home before anyone can figure out where we went.

Delhi Vs Mumbai

Its been a long break from blogging ... moving from Mumbai was such a pleasant change that I got busy having fun.. :)

Mansoon is here to beat the heat out from here ... in Mumbai life was static .... people keep moving but life remains the same ... wahee local ke first class mein question mark ki tarah ek taang per khade ho kar travel karna .. Mumbai sucks big time... if u manage to stay in south mumbai u r lucky or else life is waste ... spending half of ur life standing on one leg in local....

Delhi is spacious .. room for everyone ..space for everyone .. u dont have to breathe somebody's sweat for one hour to move from one place to another.... aaaaaarghhh

But then people of Mumbai are much more disciplined and organised than the nonsensical people in Delhi mostly from the nearby states.. .. oooh I am one of them too but quite literate to be disciplined :) and then the language the people speak here.... each sentence starting with maa*** having a few ben*** and ending with maa*** again .... and they hardly know they are uttering the words that can be abusive ... thats how they have grown up... again most of these people are from nearby states ..

traffic sense of ppl in Mumbai is much better ... sorry much much much better than ppl here ... and the reason is that most of the poople in Mumbai are service class and so literate while here in Delhi most of them are business man ... and their kids :P .. equally illetrate

So .... out of the two cities I would give Delhi an upperhand .. there are all sort of ppl here ... panjabi, bihari, haryanavi, south indians ... unlike Mumbai the city is open for everyone ..

bas yaar its too late .. will blog more soon ..... hopefully :)

Really nice song by Hoobastank ... my fav... too gud lyrics as well

I'm not a perfect person
There's many things I wish I didn't do
But I continue learning
I never meant to do those things to you
And so I have to say before I go
That I just want you to know
I've found out a reason for me
To change who I used to be
A reason to start over new
and the reason is you

I'm sorry that I hurt you
It's something I must live with everyday
And all the pain I put you through
I wish that I could take it all away
And be the one who catches all your tears
Thats why i need you to hear
I've found out a reason for me
To change who I used to be
A reason to start over new
and the reason is You

Vasai : The bad the worst and the unpredictable

The first time i came here i thought this is going to be nice town away from the hush hush and crowd of Bombay (or Mumbai whatever makes you happy) . But soon i knew this place is right next to hell. Ofcourse i mean right next to mumbai :) . Having unbroken road for 1 meter would have been a record. The first day i went to office on bike my face was all black . Zillions of auto with their auto driving manners competing with a horde of trucks of different shape and sizes will not let anything pass through the road. Electricity cut of the order of 5 hours are a normal way of life. Though for past few months i havent seen any powercut . During monsoon like the rest of mumbai this place also turned itself to venice. To make it even bad the attitude of people here is just like that of mumbai . They will not care no matter what. And last but not the least ... to make it worst there are no girls here ....or they keep hiding somewhere ..... have been wondering about my fate about scarcity of girls ...first IIT with 18 girls and 500 guys .. to IIM with 12 girls to 180 guys .... i hope its on an improving trend :P .......
PS : I usually attach a pic with my post but there was no good pic of vasai ....so no pic this time

Who's more unlucky .. me or my luck ..???

A time comes in everyone's life when he or she (or whatever) thinks of why this is happening to me . But this type of time is frequenting me bloody too often. Every now and then i take wrong decisions , make mistakes. I know i should learn from my mistakes but then no two mistakes are of same type so how does it matter. For past one month i have been struggling while everyone is wondering what the hell is wrong with this guy. He has got everything that one can think of then why is he soooooo sad. Reason !!!! After spending 27 years of my life with friends i realized how hard loneliness can hit you. It had made me sad , gloomy and bald!!!! yeah i lost half of my hair because of tension . Lets see when this loneliness is gonna end

Man eaters of Kerala ...

Just imagine you are riding a bike on a lonely road .you see not far away there is a 90 degree turn... haaa ..not at all scary untill you notice that from the other side a city bus travelling at 60-70 is coming and takes the turn with you at full speed ....yeah saying that the bus drivers are rash here will be an understatement ..they dont have the manners to drive and they dont give a damn to whatever happens to whatsoever. Again imagine a bus going at 60 and you are also happily driving behind the bus ..the road is empty except for a few people standing on the side of the road waiting for a bus and baaaaaaaang the bus hits the break and comes to a halt ... the driver never gave you a chance to think and only option left is either bang or go off the road .. who cares atleast not the drivers and that is why i said the drivers here are not rash they are manners less. When you are on the road technically there can be teo situations ... either you are infront of the bus or yo are following the bus ..its difficult to decide which one is more dangerous ..the best part is when these buses overtake they never care to see if their is any vehicle coming from opposite direction as if its the moral duty of the other vehicle driver to go off the road... whenever a bus passes by you at full 60 - 70 speed you feel closer to heaven or hell ( whichever yo want to choose) and may be thats why it is known as God's own country .. you are so near to the God !! ..The most interesting part is that behind each of these buses you will find written " Maximum city speedlimit 35km/h.Do not overtake" First part is fine but what the hell is the second part for .Are all the vehicle supposed to follow these buses at 35km/h . No , you dont need to worry because they never drive at that low speed . They will drive faster on a busy road then you can think of driving on an empty road .. No wonder whenever i go to city i surely find one accident ... May God or any powerfull human ( read Mayor or MLA ) teach some manners to these drivers ..
