Both lives are as precious.The latter’s life more precious for our existence…

Just happened to realize i define the word ‘Ambivalence’ part of it,i mean there is no balance in me part of it,i’m either really loved(yes,my 3 yr old niece does,so what if it is only when i get her sweets?!) or loathed(vote for me now!) part of it…

I have fallen in love with Amit Trivedi part of it .He’s the same guy to have composed tracks for Amir and DevD part of it.Another class eccentric act.Ditto with Anurag Kashyap part of it.

The excitement of our community T-shirt seems to have given way to after-thoughts part of it.I hope very kind, noble & innocuous comments welcome the Computer department attire.

I have started thinking part of it.Standard of thought remains same as my primary schooling theories part of it.only that ‘The Mask’ has been replaced by Heroes and Prison Break characters part of it.

I seem to have this new-found liking for Monaco buiscits part of it.

These three words part of it,seem to be haunting me part of it.I hope all those ‘Budding entrepreneurs’ part of it know what i’m talking about.For the rest drafting a new ‘comprehendible by all’ post soon :):)

Post Scriptum:The absurd title is a tribute.

Theories

Theories we believe in are termed Facts and Facts we disbelieve in are called theories. It feels intellectual to come up with a theory of your own. It is like telling people ‘look I can think’. We learn many of them…what I find special is the ‘Learning phase’ that one goes through to come up with these theories…

 

The only phase in my life where that thing below my skull was put to some use was during my primary schooling…I came up with umpteen theories then…and none of them had anything to do even remotely with the word Fact…Listing a few…Request: Let this not be conclusive of anything…Please…

 

1-I had my very own concept of time-telling…it was am when bright, and pm when dark…so 3 in the afternoon still remained am for meand sadly only me…and what made it even more annoying is my then 13 year old neighbor and his friends…would be asked the time, only to hear me say it wrong…F.U.N.N.Y…

 

2-Every country is a planet…oh yes…so when we travel from one country to another, It is actually leaving one planet and going into another…America being a white planet and Africa being black…got to pat 7 year old me for being racially specific with my theories then too…

 

3-The weirdest of them all…I kept wondering who taught me to speak Tamil as not everyone around me spoke the language…I somehow convinced myself it was Gandhiji…

 

4-I remember asking my mom as to why every rickshaw driver winked at me…yes you read that right…yet to get an answer…only if the laughter that follows every time I ask her is suggestive of anything…

 

5-I thought my mom was the cartoon character ‘The Mask’. Proud son. Only to realize that the green thing she put on her face was some kind of a beauty facial pack…

 

6-My sister was adopted and she wasn’t my biological sibling. I wish…

 

7-I always had this thing of morphing pics and there is a small history to it…There is this cousin of mine who always felt I was more like a girl…she even gave me names like Aditi…I thought of myself as a re-incarnation of some girl and just to know how I would look like if I were to be a girl I developed my first ever morphed pic…

 

8-KBC had just started… concluded my Election speech(held early morning in broad light) with a ‘Shabba khair’ not knowing what it meant…only to know it meant ‘Good night’…

 

Will probably try coming up with a part two of this post, which would read about the embarrassment I had to go through to get these answers…

 

Learning is fun…None of my theories turned out to be facts…but the very fact that I bothered thinking so much gives me a high…something that I terribly lack now…I can hardly think..!

 

I feel I have acquired this ‘yet-to-be-discovered’ disease of some higher level of dyslexia. I really do. There have been umpteen attempts to tell people about this. Persuaded them to call me ‘Inu’. Even tried singing ‘Maa’. Did everything possible to gain sympathy.All in vain.Only to be laughed at. Anyways eccentric,stupid random thoughts…Still LOT more to write on…

 

Hope to read some of ‘Your very own’ theories too…am sure there would be a few if not a ‘Blog-post’ full…Please fill in… do not make me feel like an idiot…Make me feel better…J

 

PS:I ended up winning that election. Attached below…My first morph…
