That Split Second

The world grew silent. Deafeningly silent. The silence was creating a void, or perhaps more appropriately, widening the nascent void...

In the midst of the abhorring realization, the question "Why?" seemed irrelevant. It just didn't matter anymore.

Having brought back into reality by a sharp pang, a wrench of the gut, the truth struck harder than ever. Exploding anger and excruciating pain vanished into thin air, for the mind knew he'd snap, if it were let loose.

As the sky would grow dark and eventually rain, eyes grew wet and a single tear fell. However, not silently.

It asked, "Losing something again for an unworthy cause?"

He said, "You'll be the last one."

And, synchronously, they uttered, "I'm sorry for you." The tear fell. The next didn't come.

He'd been betrayed by a friend.

Early Morning

The calm of the sea disrupted,

Like an underground volcano blown off;

A sudden sound erupted,

My alarm had gone off;
Roll over, fall down, "Ouch!"

Forgot that I was on the couch;

Groping about, I search for my glasses,

"If not for attendance, would I go to classes?"
Like a Jedi I hold the bat,

The bloody mosquitoes are there to swat;

Above was intended a pun,

In an hour I'll be on the run.
Oh, the dreaded exam days;

Alters routines in weird ways;

But, in the end, its always "come-what-may"!
As for now, "Snooze button, you're the best invention ever!" HAHAHA :-D

Chaos on the road

What wrong did I do? All that I wanted to do was drive till MIT so that I could board a train!!

So, ppl, since you've all been patient enough to read my other posts, hear this outburst of mine too :-P

Hey you Dominos, Pizza hut and all the other idiots out there!! Do you know how idiotic your policy is? How much inconvenience it causes others? They are the cause of so many accidents.  Life is NFS uh? Are you playing tollbooth trials? The driver is a classical example of modern world. He'll probably get a memo or a pink-slip(at worst) for not driving fast. I agree that your fatass boss agreed to deliver all the pizzas in half an hour so that the lazy bums who can't even cook or go to a nearby store(ignore the emergency cases) can fill their tummies quick with all the junk. You know how bad your actions are?

Next are the share-autos. I agree that you've to pick up and drop many people but then, you'll stop whenever and wherever you want ah? The road is your property uh? Bleddy you, I won't forgive generations of your kind for asking 20 rupees from Guindy to CEG when it rains. You ppl must be renamed "Highway- Robbers"!

Hey L-board aunty!! This is the 4th vehicle your putting that board on. You know to drive no? Then why that board? Can't drive without it ah? I think you are a Flintstones fan. Your leg is a multi-purpose instrument ah? When starting, it gives extra- pickup. When stopping, its an emergency brake. Also, not to forget them being "flight-stabilizers" in traffic!!

Hey you, idiyattu, I agree that you're an Abishek Bachchan fan, so, you'll do whatever he tells ah? He told "Walk and talk" inside your home, you dumbo, not while crossing the road!!

The road is full of idiots, and the ones here are only the less-serious ones. The others are the stupid guys who want to flaunt their Apaches n Pulsars and the jaywalkers.

Do understand that walking irresponsibly is also a sin.

Drive safe and walk responsibly.

Special day

Today is the 11th of November. Its 11.11.11. Some people say that its special. But then, whatever may come in the year column of the date, 11.11 is always special and its because its someone's b'day.

That someone is Ramasubramaniyam (aka) Ramu (aka) Koushik (aka) Palla (aka) "Jai Sairam" and lots more :P

I couldn't have ever have asked for a better person in life. Its been roughly around 10 years that we've known each other and I'm utmost proud to say that he's my best friend. A cool, composed,  fun-loving, enthusiastic, humble and great character.

Whenever I'm depressed or sad, and I feel like sharing, I wouldn't find a better place to pour it all in. We think, decide and act the same almost always !!

To Ramu, here goes -  "Happy birthday, my dearest, best, special friend :-)".. You're a part of me and I wish, on this day, that you n I are together like this forever and that our lives put together makes friendship, that much special :) will always be there for you :)

What do you care?

In the recent months, quite a few things happened. Some important, some not so important. One very noticed thing was the demise of the co-founder of Apple Inc., Steve Jobs.

Following it , there was a lot of RIPs, praise, facebook photo dedications and stuff. Adding to that, there was also a lot of scorn over the publicity and the "not-so-greatness" of Steve Jobs.

When I read this article, I can't stop laughing. Steve Jobs wan't great? Nonsense. And, the reasons cited are scornable ! He wasn't great just because he didn't donate lavish amounts to charity? Ridiculous.

So, what makes  you great is donating to charity uh? HAHAHA!! :-/

Look at a man, dropped out from an arts college and becoming one of the leaders in mobile and computer technology innovation ! What is not great?

What do you care about his personal life? Isaac Newton said : "If I have been able to see further, it was only because I stood on the shoulders of giants.”

Now, why would you look at the skeletons in the giant's cupboard? Do you want his productive mind or his long-past love affair? His creativity or his psychedelic experiences?

If someone said that Steve Jobs wasn't great because he didn't donate to charity or because he had a love affair or drug practices - my friend, you are blinded(or most probably jealous! :-D)

Standing up against someone requires courage. Standing up against all odds in life requires a lot of it. To send the odds crashing down, is a marvel. Steve Jobs was one who did.

Personal life of others is nothing of our concern. There is nothing wrong in living  for yourself. Whatever you do extra is out of your own courtesy. So, you may say "Steve Jobs wan't that courteous!", but definitely not "Steve Jobs wasn't great!".

Maybe you people would scorn even Newton and Galileo if you were to know their full personal lives.

Anyway, all of this is my opinion. If you will still go ahead and say "Steve Jobs wasn't great, he wasn't even close!", you may do as you please :)

The Event, the Hope and It Not Happening

Its the first week of November and third internal assessments are on their way. The covet of internals and the desperate attempts to boost it above that small yet huge benchmark '40'.

Suddenly, in the face of internals, 40 seems such a huge number and the woes of a student to cross it, is in itself a terrible journey :-D

All that put aside, one thing hasn't happened yet. Its the first week of November. Only two more weeks for the semester and it hasn't happened yet.

The circular only added to the worries. The last working day is the 12th of November(only 8 days more) and it hasn't happened.

Why the change? For, it has happened so regularly in the past!!

And, that what hasn't happened is that, A holiday hasn't been declared due to rains.

The fact about Indian roads are known to all. What do you think we students are?

Oh, the journey on a two-wheeler wouldn't get more miserable !!

For those, who'd say "Driving in rain is so much fun!", try that in my colony. You'll never drive in rain again.

Trust me, Motocross and Rally driving tracks are much much better.

We're already in a pitiable state carrying our bags(and all other accessories like the drafter, chart box etc), that someone could mistake us for returning from an army camp if we were to dress in a uniform :-/

What's wrong with giving that one day leave?

Bear Grylls probably, would have it easier. Maybe, I should ask him to do an episode - "Travel to CEG on a rainy day!"

Expedition it really is.

The people(office-goers etc) already look at you like an alien if you're carrying a bag inside a train or bus, and would do all sorts of things to irritate you and finally, unshoulder your bag, and giving it to a sitting person. Now, added to that, the raincoat. He'll look at you like you're *something* :-P

How come only schools get holidays? ;-> You ppl are unfair. Just because we came to college doesn't mean we're not students, you know? In fact, we're even poorer souls.

The rain, too, why doesn't it rain continuously? Either it rains all night and clears up early morning or it rains after i reach college. Damn it.

Whatever said and done, third internals are on their way and the quest to boost internals are too. No use hoping for a holiday, I better study "Performance and optimization of disk block access" :-D
