Adios 2010

Mahn! WHAT an year this was :O

I can’t believe 2010 is history(almost!).  I’ve this feeling that time isn’t a standard thingy anymore..  I mean, how fast can an year possible pass? This has to be the limits. Last year’s New Year bash is still so damn fresh in my mind and everything seems to have happened at a super fast rate... Something is definitely wrong. This is where our brilliant scientists should hop in and check if the Earth is actually spinning faster and hence time’s passing by quickly too or whatever! :D.. “Sab kaam main hi karoonga kya?” – Amazing dialogue by Rajpal Yadav  in the super slow movie “Action Replayy” K...
          More about Earth’s rotational speed(psst- I’ll have to check with my kid bro on this :D) and Action Replayy later :D

Enter 2011 and I officially will become a Soothsayer  ;)... That’s cos most things I predicted happened this year. The unexpected almost always happens without expecting.. 
          Woaah that’s some line.. Looks like my IQ’s shooting up --“The Unexpected happens without expecting”?? lol :P...
2010 hasn’t been a great year. My body’s full of anti-biotics and meds. I probably have hogged more medicines in this year, than I have in all my life. What a ride this year has been!!
Talking of rides, our bike rides have come to a standstill :-(...(Remember, I predicted this in Adios 2009 and I am not proud of that predictionL..). @7000 RPM, our bikers group hasn’t seen a bike ride in this year at all! Hahahaha Prashant, Chandra and Raghu probably would curse me cos that ride on Feb 20th could easily have been a bike ride if it hadn’t ended up as a freak accident with me kick starting my medicine diet for the rest of the year(For various other reasons though! :P)...

That accident was amazing huh!! What say, trio? Lol... I’m still writing a post on that accident and rest assured, there’ll be more “hahahahas” than “awwws” and "ohhhs" in that post filled with tragedy  galore:P.. Weird but that’s how it was lol :P.. I can’t believe I was limping for 3 and half months and I am now left with this wound mark for life on my right knee and my right arm :D.. Amazing !! :D

Prashant, Chandra and Raghu,-->> Remember I said “SHIT”? :P.. that’s for you guys to laugh about.. and for others who weren't there that day or don't know about it, you’ll have to wait a while till I write that post:D... Am I actually blah blahing unnecessarily?  I think I am.. I just read what I’ve written and it sucks.. God(read ‘Alien’) bless those of you who haven’t dozed off yet :D..

Alright.. I’m going to quickly sum this year with a few points....

1Started of really good.. expected it to remain that way... It didn’t.. cos- - -

  • I was left with a limp for 3 months which meant, no table tennis, cricket, bike rides, shuttle badminton and even a satisfying  nature call! True!! :P.. 
  • I think my body resistance went for a major toss and I was prone to all kinds of illness and this year has been really SICK :-s.. Something came up every month and I hope it doesn’t EVER come back :-p
  •  Work started becoming monotonous and boring and I was doing all kinds of work I shouldn’t be doing...
  • I quit my job with a split second thought. Gave them the frankest opinions and views as to why I’m leaving and my reasons definitely were not easy to digest! Left my colleagues wondering why in the world would I get such a thought. And when they realised it was real, some were speechless(I’m lying :D).. I am not that great a friend to anyone that they’d miss me :D
  • I wasted a month’s time... It was great! A break I needed after 4 years of continuous work :P
  • I then joined an institute(Still am attending classes there :-s)— I’m not going to talk about the details of my course but they charge a BOMB and I spent all of my life’s savings and MORE on it... I think I’m regretting it now..
  • I have to travel 20 kms(one way) to reach my classes and that guarantees an abusive rap from me. People on the roads are sick. They care less about traffic sense. Often think of buying an Air-gun to vent my anger.
  • I was going to type more about my ill health here.. but I just edited and added it in point 2 :P..
  • I don’t regret anything from the past now.. Not even that one friendship break for which I was the reason(Yes I accepted it.. didn’t I  ??)... I tried to mend it with that person this year and that person didn’t quite reciprocate.. which I think is fair enough.. anyways.. that rids me off some burden.. I TRIED!! :D *pats himself*
  • Had a tiff with a good friend(or is it having?)... We’ll sort it out ;-). Looks like that pal(foe:D) will take revenge by mending this thingy.. Weird? :D
  • Few colleagues I thought would remain good friends surprisingly aren’t doing their bit. May be they’re just TOO BUSY! Our “good friends” status we claimed off is supposedly in hibernation mode even after all the calls I made to you. I’m jobless and I make calls to you guys like every 3 days and you don’t even care to call me if I haven’t contacted you for 2 weeks? Supa cOoL!! Take a hint buddy.... You know I am not one of those patient friends.. I have an amazing trait to cut off!! Good luck to us :D
  • My kid brother has written something super interesting. It talks about time, light, worm holes and a lot of things I don’t understand(These are all related to the universe and theories on space). I read his theory a couple of times and I still don’t understand much of it. I’m sure no-one has thought of such a thing and I hope you become the next Einstein(with a better hairstyle lol :P)..
  • No major additions on the gadget front. I just don’t want to invest much with 2012 round the corner :P
  • Tons of photographs taken this year.
  • 15)                  Oh and lots of blog posts too :D
  • Lucky me has a fan base for my blog in the Netherlands too.. *winks*
  • Spent some great time with my cousin brother. He’s super cOoL :D...
  • The Blog-o-sphere doesn’t enthral me anymore. I will be shifting to personal diary writing pretty soon.. I think I’d express myself better there without having to think about the choice of words or people. May be a couple of posts before April and My day will be the blog’s D-Day :D

Aaand I think that’s about it. .. This post looks gloomy without any positives but this year hasn’t been all that sad, actually.. I’ve learnt a great deal this year too(yes!)..
People who claim they know me probably are wondering if this truly is the end to this post and my answer’s a YES :D.. I’m not adding that boring bit anymore :P.
Alright then.. this should be my last post for 2010, unless I am in a poetic mood or I want to write- which’s very unlikely to happen. I’ve an exam on Monday :(
I’m happy I’m ending yet another year as a Good person :(... That’s my verdict and feel free to give your own :P... I’m tired of being Good. Just the way I was last year and the one before it and so on!

Last year, I said “Gosh~~.. I'm glad its ending... Let this year heal all the pains, misunderstandings, hatred, betrayals and THE Traitors...” and I actually experienced all of them :P.. So I am not going to ask for anything from 2011. Let it be the way it is going to be ;)

Have a WONDERFUL LIFE ahead.. Not just an YEAR..;-)

Never letting it go. My Oldest book, its Memories!!

Spoiler Alert!! – I really am not a book kind of a person. I don’t read many books. I can’t remember the last time I read a novel/book, except for the one I’m going to talk about. It has made me what I am today. An Atheist. I strongly suggest you quit reading and now!! There are going to be a lotttt of spoilers in this post and it’s going to ruin your reading thingy, just the way people react when I say --“I know what happens at the end of this story. The real bad guy is..”..”Slap Slap!!”... “But he isn’t the murderer. It is..” .. “Slap punch Slap! Just Shut up will you?” :-D

“What the Hell?!!?”-- I’m sure you just said that. If you didn’t, don’t read the rest :P.. I am not really in a mood to write today, considering I just got done with my test on “Routing” :-s... Anyways, here I go!

The first time I read this book, I was too little to comprehend any of it. I probably wasn’t even a  teenager. I liked the book. It had lots(is there a superlative to lots?—Lotsest, may be?) of pictures. Many of which, were in Black and White. The book wasn’t well maintained either. The pages in the book were orange. Almost! And that gave it a more sacred look. I read it all and I didn’t understand  bit of it, except for words like “aircrafts, astronaut, Pyramids, India et al”. The book soon had to go back. To its sacred temple. A place guarded and maintained by a nasty looking priest with thick spectacles and shiny black shoes- A Librarian..

I must admit, I didn’t miss that book. Not for long. Enter college and I was doing some random search in the college Library. I couldn’t find books on reptiles. I asked the Librarian for one and she said “Next Week”..:-|..
          I had to read something. Something, because all my friends were busy reading “Filmfare, Stardust, Lifestyle and India Today(trust me, very few of them held that book long for over 5 minutes!)” and there were no more fun books. All of them had been taken. Including the tattered and old ones.

So there I was, doing some random book surfing. And then, something amazing happened. I spotted “THE BOOK”(psst—No, that’s not the name of the book :P), I took it out of the shelf. It definitely was “THE BOOK” because it was hidden. It was being protected from everyone but the ONE(yeah.. me :d).

I’m sure I had my jaw open for a long while.. Who cares!! Everyone’s busy with ‘current affairs’ on their magazines :D.. Fools! Little did they realise that their doing would help me find the best book ever!

I walked up to the Librarian and told her I’d take that book home. She looked at the book, then at me, the book again and gave a weird expression. She took out a bottle of gum and started sticking the torn pages together and voila, I was going to borrow something which would change me and my outlook on our species, our planet, our mythology and Mr/Mrs. God all together!

I read that book over half a dozen times before I returned it back. I made notes. I started making my own suppositions and hypothesis on the Pyramids, the Nazca lines, the Stonehenge, the Easter Islands and mannnnnyy other places, all of which are major tourist locations today!

A few years later, I happened to come across this book at a road-side bookstore. He had a brand new book with smooth pages and a tough cover aaaand then there was an old book with a delicate, part torn cover and the pages were almost orange in colour. :-p
Any guesses? I went for the old one ;)... Nothing like something in your possession which reminds you of a lot more than itself, ain’t it?

Ever since that day, I would speak at great lengths about the book and its contents. It is why I call myself an Alien and why I don’t believe in the God we worship. I know I’m his successor and so are you and I know we(man)-- didn’t build the Pyramids, didn’t carve the Nazca lines with precision and we definitely didn’t invent the Galvanic cell before the 1700s? Alright, for those who’d argue, definitely not between 250BC-224 AD!! Yes, it’s called the “Baghdad Battery”. A perfect Galvanic Battery which ran on Citric acids! Slurp...Yummy :D

I was beginning to get curious about Aliens(God) and how they visited Earth from time to time in their bright space ships, with their Astronaut’s gear on them. Our ancestors surely conjured a “God with a Trident” when they saw an alien with a spade or may be a walking stick lol! :P
          The book made me want to question myself about our species. Did we really go through all that evolution from Monkey to Man? Or did a horny Alien actually lose control and we(humans) are a cross breed between the monkey family and the Extra- Terrestrial?

This book had a successor and I read that too. All his series pose a lot of valid questions, all with evidence and proper argument. It is a must read for all book lovers. It definitely isn’t for those who don’t have their windows open for Anti-God stuff.

To me, this book is no less than a religious book. It is what has made me the Atheist Alien I am today and it is what makes me look out to the stars with hope that a beam from a space ship would teleport me Home :D.  Reasons enough to keep me from parting with the ‘Legen’........ wait for it :D......’Dary’ book \:d/...

I’ve had this book with me for over 6 years, though I’ve been reading it for over 12 years thanks to the Sacred Temples guarded by the Nasty Priests :P and I am definitely not giving it to anyone on Earth. I have to show this masterpiece to one of my own(Aliens).

Dude—Yeah I know you’re reading this. Stop using the satellites the humans have built, to have a peek-a-boo into my blog. Just come and take me home already! The bright beam- I hope that day happens before I’m history and someone writes a book on me lol :P

The Book—“Chariots of the Gods?” by Erich von Däniken.

The first print. The book later came out with more attractive covers but I like this version better. Nothing like a question to start off!!

blah blah blah--- I had this sudden surge of inspiration to take a pic of the book in my possession and put it over here but my Lazy self was victorious(as EVER)!! **Wicked Grin**
Inspiration Courtesy--> Photographs of the book she owns, on her blog post. She's a fellow blogger, foe and "self-proclaimed Alien"... Link to her blog post HERE!

I am so SICK!!

Hahaha... funny thing happened earlier today... Well, I only woke up at 1830 hrs.What the hell!??! That's early either ways :P..

The radio was playing a super awesome song "Dil Ko Tumse Pyaar Hua-- RHTDM" and I was happily humming to its tunes. Right after that, another favourite song of mine "Tinka Tinka--Karam" played. I went up to the sink, started glittering my pearly whites and the song was done. I started singing "Tere Naina- Chandni Chowk To China" and that didn't play. I was kinda confused and some RJ started blah-blahing.. Damn!

I then realised this wasn't my playlist and it wouldn't play songs according to my order. My Hindi Playlist has Dil Ko Tumse, Tinka Tinka and Tere Naina one after the other and I've gotten so used to it that I involuntarily expected Tere Naina to play right after the two came in succession.

But uh, I ain't to be blamed entirely. How the hell did Big FM know this is how these songs are lined up on my playlist? Co-incidence huh?

Anyways... I'm sleepy again.. tough day tomorrow with my classes in the morning(YES, your kind of a morning. The normal kind of a morning. 8:00 am :-s...).. Have to zoom past irritating assholes with ZERO road-sense. All this for 21 freaking Kilometers. Phew :-s...
