This is about the sudden urge to nibble on marshmallows.
And about sauce smilies on egg poaches.
About spilling water on silly cats.
And then watching them hurriedly scoot away.

Freakishly unconnected events. Blahs.

But strangely enough, they are all known to lend clueless smiles on gloomy days.

On a completely different note, Im missing home right now. Missing Saraswati pujo in that building. The dulcet smell of sandal wood and the delightful yum of khejur guder payesh. But most importantly, I miss decking up in mom’s yellow sarree, just so I can aimlessly roam about the dumpy lanes of Lakegardens. And that involuntary act of tucking strands of hair behind the ear, every time I bumped into the cute someone.

Damn my exams. I am so missing out on all the goofing around.
In between the air that was so damn electric.

P.s : Have a nice time being foolish every one. Have a great weekend and an awesome Sarawati puja :-)

The thing called engieering

As I cracked my brains over what exactly to contribute to my branch magazine, I realised I could not even bring myself down to string together a single sentence that isn’t weird or verbally challenged or that wont drive you a hundred pages away. My fingers seemed to be a major victim to the force called friction. They felt retarded enough to type a single word. All I could type at the end of fifteen long minutes were the words ‘My college’ and no sooner did I realise that it is practically impossible for me to spill paragraphs over paragraphs on this topic. When you are left with tones of assignments wanting to chew your brains, the nerve breaking internals, the deadly vivas and the semesters lurking round the corner, the concept of engineering does not exactly seem utopian right? Under all the forces trying to pressurise me from all angles and compelling me to drown 1000 miles deeper into the musty pages of the ugly fat books , the only word that skips my mind about my college is B-O-R-I-NG . And the only word I can associate with the course called ‘engineering’ is F-R-U-S-T-R-A-T-I-N-G !

I paused. I took a deep breath. On second thoughts, thinking of our Big Boss Sir Ranchoddas Chanchad; the three magical words flashed in front of me . The words that probably motivates all the helpless engineers today. “Al iz well”. I realised that life surely does not come with a ‘how-to-avoid-frustration’ manual. Neither does it always look like a perfect fairytale. Sometimes it throws you surprises . When it hits you, you figure out that the best way to deal with it , is just to sit back and laugh before you bounce right back. Being an engineer is not very easy. Yet it isn’t all that difficult either.

Engineering is not just a course. It is in fact a way of life. A sort of life that teaches you not only how to make an electrical transformer work but actually ends up transforming your entire being at the end of four years of constant brain grinding. It is a part of life when you learn to take immense joy out of simple things. You learn to turn every dull moment interesting with just a bright smile . You acquire the laugh-a-lot syndrome. You realise it is more important to live for others. It is indeed the four years of mindless fun, the canteen treats, the scary professors, the head breaking assignments, the Friday nights, the bottles of vodka, a tinge of carelessness, a dash of madness, the randomness and most importantly the mast kalandarness that turns you into a perfect engineer.

You know you are a major victim of this thing called ‘engineering’ when :

  1. Even after the deadly suffering in a prolonged day without any trace of electricity and water, you jump really high and scream ‘YIPPPI!!’, when the fans start working once again.
  2. You think bunking classes is a part of your syllabus.
  3. You stare at an orange juice container because it reads ‘CONCENTRATE’
  4. You can write 70 words per minute but can’t read your own handwriting.
  5. At least one of your jeans have a hole in it
  6. You have a guilt free pass to have random crushes on the ‘good looking’ ones. Even though you know that the specie called ‘good looking people’ is almost extinct in your college.
  7. Your calculator misses the ‘equal to’ button.
  8. You think your room looks the best when it is disorganised enough to resemble a dungeon.
  9. You think it is best to study at night. At night you realise it is best to not study at all.
  10. Though you are absolutely clueless about the subject, you still manage to face vivas with sky high confidence. Since you can’t convince the Prof., u think its best to confuse him out of his nerves.

If you are an engineer I am sure you could completely relate to all the Ten Commandments written above. It is not very difficult. Is it?

A candid confession: In a whirlwind of an year I am in a new place in my life. A place which was probably not even remotely in my cards. But for the record, I would just like to say, it feels really great. I just realised that engineering isn’t all that frustrating after all.

Have you ever stuck to an idea just because it seemed familiar to you? have you ever loved someone just because you knew him for too long to let him go ?

Life sure is a weird thing. One moment it gives you everything, and the next moment everything changes and you are left with almost nothing. People change, things change , situations change and the only thing that remains constant is 'change' itself. Inspite of being so much unpredictable, life does not come with a how-to-do manual right! It is totally for us to decide what to do and what not to. It is entirely on us to take the right path and to choose the right people for ourselves.

It is time we stop sticking to the familiar only because it apparently seems familiar. It is time to unleash our thoughts and get rid of the pre conceived notions and allow something new to happen to us. It is time we learn to accept.

I have just realised that trying out new things doesn't really hurt.

It makes you happy :-)

there is always a sizzling brownie or a bavarian cookie waiting for you somewhere. You just have to discover it yourself ! :-)

coffees and cuddles and a birthday bash

Im FINALLY back to college .
Last week was insanely awesome!!Oh Hell Im seriously having a severe hangover right now!!

My hearty thanks to all the people who made my home-coming so much special. :-)
No matter how far away i am, there is always a part of me that is left behind with those mom-made yummy cuisines, the hot Capucinoes, the warm chit chats , the mad photo sessions , the dashing girl-parties and of course the incredibly delicious crunchy kfc chickens :P

The muddleheaded crackpots out there aka 'my dear friends' are indeed like ventilators. Click on the link to know what exactly I mean :-)

Well... it was mom's birthday today!!
I really wanted to make her happy with something special , something that can make up for all the times i act like a devious little naughty kiddo . I thought, for once i must thank her for tolerating my frequent utter nonsenses , for cooking the best meals ever, for putting up with my madness, for understanding me so well and for always being there for me. I sometimes( err...always) play the guest in my own house... but somehow she is the most amazing host i have ever known !! :)

She is an angel.

This was my gift for her... a card, an aquarius book mark , a coffee mug and a BIG HUG !!

*hugs* <3

yeah.. i meant it !

i hope i made her happy :-)
