Thoughts on love...Part2

For all that I talk about love, or the message about love that my poems might convey,I do not believe in true love. From a purely practical perspective, what is love but hormones at work, from a psychological perspective, what is love but an attraction, a phase everyone goes through. Maybe its a name we give for a basic need, a need for companionship, the need to be with someone. So what we believe to be love is but all these wordily things, misinterpreted as something divine?Or is it?

These questions have no definitive answers. No answer that would be just right. Similar is the dilemma regarding a bigger issue , the question about the existence of a supreme being, or God.
Despite all the scientific logic and rationale, whenever we are in the slightest trouble, what is the first thing that comes to our mind?Yes, its God.

Its this belief that helps millions carry on with their lives, in the hope that their is a higher being, a being who would guide them through the…
Random Thoughts Part 2

1. The realization...

Kathai Aankhon Wali Ik Ladki,
Ek Hee Baat Par Bighadati Hai,
Tum Mujhe Kyun Nahin Mile Pehle,
Roz Keh Kar Mujhe Ladti Hai,
Kathai Aankhon Wali Ik Ladki.

2. The feeling...

You're on the road
But you've got no destination
You're in the mud
In the maze of her imagination

You love this town
Even if that doesn't ring true
You've been all over
And it's been all over you

It's a beautiful day
Don't let it get away
It's a beautiful day

Touch me
Take me to that other place
Reach me
I know I'm not a hopeless case

What you don't have you don't need it now
What you don't know you can feel it somehow
What you don't have you don't need it now
Don't need it now
Was a beautiful day ...

3. And finally...the classic...

Main zindagi ka saath nibhata chala gaya
har fikr ko dhuye mein udata chala gaya

barbadiyon ka sog manana fizool tha
barbadiyon ka jashn manata chala gaya
jo mil gaya usi ko muqaddar samajh liya
jo kho gaya main us…
What I do at Mysore...

For my sis...Part2

Somethings we just love to hate. Love to fight with. Love to tease. But still cant seem to live without the same very things. My friend Shishir calls them the 'Reincarnation of Evil' . I too have a similar 'Reincarnation of Evil' in my life. It is none other than my sister. My sis, about whom I wrote so much in an earlier post.

It was from her that I got my first rakhi today, along with a nice letter. A letter, which had among other things, a request that I get the rakhi tied from one of the prettiest girls in the class.Well, the request, sadly has been fulfilled.

Finally, signing out with a big thank you to all of my sisters. Hope you all stay happy forever. And to the 'Reincarnation of Evil', in my life, well sis,watch out...I'll see you very soon in Delhi. with love, cheeku. check out: For my sis...Part1
Six Gems...songs that touched me...

1)Tumse Milke...Soul stirring music, great lyrics, Anil Kapoor and Madhuri...burning up the screen. What more can you ask for? A very touching and romantic song from parinda.
The lyrics echo the feelings...

"Maine kiya hai raat din, bas tera he intezar,
tere bina aata nahi, ek pal mujhe ab aaram,
apna yeh vada raha, tumse na honge judaa."

2) Aata Jaate: So what if the music is a straight lift from "I just called to say...". The lyrics and the amazing vocals make it a song to hum and remember. The songs from maine pyar kiya and the way it captures all the emotions involved in the realization of being in love, is just outstanding.

Ofcourse, ..."yahi sach hai, shayad...maine pyar kiya".

3)Tujhe Dekha: SRK, Kajol, DDLJ...need it say more??? Yes,
'Pyar hota hai deewana sanam, ab yahan se kahan jaaye hum, tere baahon mein mar jaaen hum."
Perfect chemistry, perfect song. A song which set the mood for an entire generation. Or in…

Infosys Mysore First Salary...

First Salary...

Well, the first salary for many of us, is the culmination of what all we looked forward to at school and college. A day comparable to any other, a day which everyone will remember throughout their lives. A day which, as they say...will go down memories lane.

Yes, we all at Mysore got our first salaries last week. Coming just on the eve of the weekend of the great 25th year celebrations of the company added to the excitement. First salaries, being such an important thing in everyone's life, had everyone making up plans for what they indented to do with them. From the amusing to the bizarre, the plans were varied and great to listen to. From the guys who wanted to splurge most of it on day 1 itself, to the girl who rather innocently said that, she was waiting for the salary day, because she wanted to buy all the cool cosmetics her room mate used, to the guy who wouldn't touch the salary, till he made an offering at the temple(after the drinks, of course) and also t…
