Lookin' Up at The Stars....

I got the much awaited break i needed from Life....this feeling of Rejunuvation gives me a new high...
was generally thinking about Life..last night...n i can sum it up in 3 words..(jus like Robert Frost did): "it goes on"....
Delhi faced 3 bombings yesterday-jus before many ppl have been killed, many more were injured and some have gone missing as well. One of the bombs went off at Sarojini Nagar- a shopper's stop...but again...yesterday couldnt stop the rise of a new "today" and people have gone out shopping again today...its jus a reminder- Life goes on...waits for none...(the bitch that she is!)

some weeks ago...the monotony of Life had jus gotten to me...and then, IIT kanpur happened and it came with an additional trip to Bangalore(which is the current fave haunt of the Rain God)!
Ten days of experiencing Heaven and Hell at the same time..had quite a blasst...

I so wanna post details of the trip, but it wouldnt be much fun without the tht will take some time...
There are some things(and some people) in our Lives that irritate us to the core most of the times...but without those things and people...Life seems so incomplete!!!

FrOm BarisTA , WIth Love!!

As usual, Dramsoc practice failed to commence!! Most of the ppl were not there, n outta the few who were there, some had to go to "Gurgaon", some to meet "old buddies", n some also went for "blind dates" ( Vindyrulz will defff kill me)!! Bored ppl that we are, Akanksha n i decided to go to SDA...lil did i know that BOredom wd take flight n not return for the rest of the day!

we entered "Village Cafe"...and being the only two-females-together, we left as soon as we'd entered! The next stop was Barista...
M: lets sit in barista ...
A: no's gonna be borrriing...
M: chal na... in any case we dont have a place to go where we can jus sit and talk

we ordered a Sandwich, and the guy apparently was verrry surprised...he went like : n NOTHING to drink?? now, akanksha n i felt a lil weird...but that's ok... u find weirdos EVERYWHERE! Later, we ordered a Cappuccino and the guy actually wrote, "hi akanksha" on it!(she hadnt even told him HER name whn she ordered) heheheheeh! ohk...lemme put it this way:

A sandwich:rupees 38
A cuppa cappuccino with "hi akanKsha" written on it :rupees 33
The look on her face when she saw it : PRICELESS!!!
(and the look tht the guy got after that, from us : HILARIOUS) *smile*smile*smile*

we met akanksha's colony friend over there who was friends with the Barista guy...a Surprising Revelation- tht guy had been noticing her for long n found out her name today...he kept looking our way....gawd! it was jus so damn funny at that time coz akanksha has an unbelievably LOUD voice...poor sympathies...(hehehehehehehe)

However...i dont like messing with the Apple i stopped teasing her...but we laughed our way back to the IIT Campus!! :D

n yea...Akanksha, if u're reading this... yr idea of hitting SDA..needles to say..
jus made my day!!! :D :D :D :D :D

I'm in Loveee.....

And finally i think i'm in Love............and everybody who already is, should jus listenn to this song....and fall in love over and over again.....
Thanks Nitin...for introducing me to Def Leppard!!!

"Walk away..if u want to...
its ok...if you need to...
You can run, but you can never hide
From the shadow that's creepin' up beside you

There's a magic runnin through your soul
But you can't have it all...(whatever u do)
i'll be two steps behind you...(wherever you go)
And i'll be there to remind you
That it only takes a minute of precious time...
To Turn around...I'll be two steps behind...

Take the time to think about it
Jus walk the line, you know you jus can't fight it
Take a look around, you'll see what you can find
Like the fire burnin up inside me....

Random ExpressIonS!

We had a dramsoc practice again today- and as usual...i got up late! i was supposed to reach at 10...well- thats the time i got up!! And tht did not stop me from taking my own sweet time to get ready and have breakfast- though i had to make an effort to run wen i saw the silly 500 nearing the bus stop(its got a baddd frequency, or else i wd hv walked it)!! expected, most of the people had not turned up( GOD why?? why do they not realize that BITS,Pilani is not gonna be easy!!)

anyways...we (saloni, me, akanksha) were a lil unhappy with the way things are going...and its amazing what shopping can do to girls!!! it actually makes u feel better! it was suchha co-incidence! the 3 of us had individully planned to go to Lajpat Nagar...and it had been suchhhha long time since I, the Shopper, had shopped!

Its an amazing feeling- getting the t-shirt/skirt/kurta you really really want on half the price...What really made ME happy was the purchase of the book i've been wanting for agess...Angels and Demons, by Dan Brown. And unbelievably, i got it at suchha cheap price that writing it down here wont be fair to Mr. Brown!! Getting my "most wanted" book actually kickstarted my shopping!! Hehehehe!!! (.....and chicken momos served as an added treat to Shopping!! )

n now, during the vacations i jus hv 3 agendas on my list:
1. Sleeping
2. Reading Angels and Demons(am sure that wont take me too long)
3. Going for Dramsoc Practices
.....yea...about studying...hmmm....seems a lil difficult to squeeze it in somewhere in my busy schedule, but will try my best to... ;)

and yea..i shall keep blogging as well!! cheerzzz!!!

each morning at college
i meet her...usually having a Frappe
her fave haunt is Nescafe...

Going where?-of that, i hv absolutely no knowledge!

in class, she's usually on the Phone
or passing notes
studying is something she totally loathes
and her comments...ah! she's suchhhaa funny bone!

when Sakshi comes to arguing,
one should jus run for cover
coz no matter how much fun she is...she has a verrryyy short temper
a temper, that may...well.. jus leave u crying!!

each day...its a ritual for her to call me
n when i provide her with that (rare) service
she makes sure she benefits to the utmost-for her, its a chance she jus cant miss
and thats how my day much torture...u see...(sorry sak...cdnt think of a better line)

no matter wat she does...
no matter wat she says...
i will the always the adore the sakshi's...(sorry?)....

My Best ComPanioN!!

Anand inspired me to learn the guitar...yeah...thats the right word- INSPIRED.....
the way he played seemed so easy- until i got my first real six string and played it till my fingers bled!! :))

jokes i can play the guitar- NOT like a pro...but it doesnt matter....
i wont ever forget that rainy Saturday afternoon-when he actually bunked college jus to come down to my place and teach me the basics...he was my first teacher- and the last! (n the best) :D

there were those times when he literally had a nervous breakdown coz of me irking him to the extent "n"....he almost gave up on me...until one day when the celestial conspiracy against me ended and his hopes were revived!!! hehehehe!!!

Andy has always been there whenever i needed him..(thanks for that buddy..altho u dont thank friends)....he's always been there to cheer me up when i've been in one of my worst moods....

.....and now...whenever i'm in those moods...there's my guitar...that reminds me of him..and here i am...SMILING again!!
( and andy,if u're reading this..stop smiling...i dint intend to send ya on Cloud No.9!! )

Life..and People!

there's this email i received from a friend and i realised how very true it was...
so i thought i'd jus share it with u guys out there...

"People come into your life for a Reason, a Season or a Lifetime.

When you know which one it is, you will know what to do for that person.

When someone is in your life for a REASON, it is usually to meet a
need you have expressed. They have come to assist you through a
difficulty, to provide you with guidance and support, to aid you
physically, emotionally, or spiritually. They may seem like godsent,
and they are!

They are there for the reason you need them to be. Then, without any
wrongdoing on your part, or at an inconvenient time, this person will
say or do something to bring the relationship to an end. Sometimes they die. Sometimes they walk away. Sometimes they act up and force you to take a stand. What we must realize is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled, their work is done. The prayer you sent up has been answered, and now it is time to move on.

Some people come into your life for a SEASON, because your turn has
come to share, grow, or learn. They bring you an experience of peace,
or make you laugh. They may teach you something you have never done.
They usually give you an unbelievable amount of joy. Believe it! It is real! But, only for a season.

LIFETIME relationships teach you lifetime lessons: things you must
build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation. Your job is
to accept the lesson, love the person, and put what you have learned to use in all other relationships and areas of your life. "

It is said that love is blind but friendship is clairvoyant.


A soldier stationed in Afghanistan recently received a letter from his
girlfriend back home. It read as follows:

Dear Ricky,
I can no longer continue our relationship. The distance between us is
just too great. I must admit that I have cheated on you twice, since
you've been gone, and it's not fair to either of us.
I'm sorry.
Please return the picture of me that I sent to you.
Love, Becky..............

The soldier, with hurt feelings, asked his fellow soldiers for any
snapshots they could spare of their girlfriends, sisters or
ex-girlfriends.In addition to the picture of Becky, Ricky included all
the other pictures of the pretty gals he had collected from his
buddies. There were 57 photos in that envelope.... along with this note:

Dear Becky,
I'm so sorry, but I can't quite remember who the hell you are.
Please take your picture from the pile, and send the rest back to me.
Take Care,
