ARNAB GOSWAMI!!! blogging journey would be incomplete if i don't mention this man...ah...hmm..
that's how I address him....
serial blasts rocked Hyderabad..I remember,lazy me ordered my mom to bring me a text book from koti.It was minutes after mum left the place,the first bomb ripped off,at the famous gokul was raksha bandhan,the news channels flashed all blood,flesh strewn all over...rakhis..the sight of what i was seeing was disastrous...flipping channels,I stopped when i heard a voice ranting on and on ranting,not giving a chance for Renuka chaudhary to speak, slamming Ravi shankar prasad-"till when?till when?Mr.prasad will the B.J.P wait for such opportunities to play the blame game,is it not the time to realize?"
Angry young man...i thought(not very young though :P)with brains...huh...I kept staring..the cells inside me were charged. In the midst of all the blood...destruction,my heart sang some unusual he bade bye....i went shattered,at that time I didn't knew that he was the Editor in chief of Times Now,battling with Barkha Dutt of NDTV and Rajdeep Sardesai of CNN IBN..

My hands dared not switch to any channel,other than times now...when will he come..when will he....i was desperate to see him again...again and again infact.. :D"Frankly speaking with Arnab Goswami,"showed the channel,the first episode of his I caught was with Dharmendra,the channel flashed -repeat telecast at 8:30(sunday),11:30(monday).
Well...what was it then?...every sunday...2:30,8:30...and ya...for a few weeks I missed my college too,to catch the same telecast on monday.
poor moi didn't have any knowledge of internet at that time,I visited my freind to know if internet would help...huh..what else would help?it was then I begged mom for a net connection,in false pretext of practicing some C&DS programmes :P
The first thing i typed in my google tool bar was "ARNAB GOSWAMI,"and not upto my expectation,AG was already married with a kid...well... I had no plans to marry him.. :D
My eyes opened wide,as i saw-"post graduate from Oxford univ. "
I remember,how I faught with Karthik,for his worst comments on A.G at his blog.pessimist Karthik!!

I started finishing my dinner before 8:30,and sat in front of the T.V at has to do that,in order to book the T.V,other wise my mom would take control or my dracula bro would!!I blushed and blushed,the moment my eyes came in to contact with appeared as if he read the news for me and only me...coz every one used to leave the hall,the moment it strucked 9!
Poor freind of mine,had to face the brunt of listening to the regular debates during classes...we faught on issues,many of my friends became regular veiwers of A.G in a very few days...they teased me,refering his age.....and now I watch A.G's Newshour with my Pa giving me company..

No sooner,I became a moderator on Orkut of his community,almost rulled the community and also created one, ...its sad that the community's dead now.. :(,got many friends through the community....earned a name-"Arnab stalker!!"
One of the craziest thing I did was,called Times Now's office at 5:00AM,on my first's been a year long this took place..i still laugh at myself..did I expect him to be there in the office at 5??
I remember,how I was glued to the television set for hours...when he was reporting for bhuttos investigations...,for Mumbai blasts,be it Arushi murder case...and the very latest TAJ episode!

Learned a lot from his debates,love his high pitches, his killing statements against the politicians..
though he some times rushes in to conclusions with out giving a glance...A.G's best of all!!!
it's been 1.6 years now..and still I am hooked to A.G,with same enthusiasm ...hooked to times now!!
The next time I mention him here,will surely be with a padmashree..
very much waiting for it,since 2 years...may be next year!
cheers A.G!!

book mark and the deathly hallows!!!!!

with the control of T.V in my brothers hand..poor moi left with no option,(poor..coz i had to sacrifice A.G's episode,for I did not rush to the T.V before my bro took the charge of the remote)joined mom and my sis..who stared at us saying-"harry's better than you people!"she lives,loves potter!potter geek!:P..and went in to her world of Hogwarts,she's got a book mark for each potter book,each with their own names scribbled on in funky styles,not for this one-deathly hallows!which in turn turned deathly to me.she needed a book mark...and I to take the title of Miss artist,rushed and brought all the sketches,scissors and one of my books main part..that card board kinds thing,shaped it in to a nice castle,not harry kinds,but the that alladin one,coloured and it was done.

I wanted a lace to be attached to it,the ones we can see in diaries...and for i had many,i plucked one,a blue saturn one...make a hole and put the lace inside..and the book mark's done...why couldn't it be that simple...well it had big plans for me...and more over a suplement to be blogged.
pierced the card board,for attaching the lace to the castle...once...twice..nah not done!!!

pierced harderrrrrr and it pierced my was right in...the needle from which the sweaters and all are sewed,inside my index finger...i didn't realize how deep it went in,tried pulling it away... i could feel some thing moving my hand started shivering...before my mom could see it and create a havock,I rushed in to the bath room.In the midst of this my sister said-"say,one two three..and pluck it out!!" as if it was I a surgeon??but I had to do it,play a surgeon...series of scenes flashed my mind-the surgeon at war site removing the bullets...etc;etc; and the silliest of all...the finger with a needle on my blogger.. :P..

I ordered my cell in the bath room,my sister got it for me,yelling-are you mad...???
i tried pulling it out saying one two three...but I am not a butcher you see,i moved it slightly,i could feel the sharp tool moving in my finger..
I imagined,what the consequences would be if I 'd not play a successful surgeon,sleeping with the book mark,and also what it' b if my sis would put her hand on it,when asleep...what would it be then..I'd rush to the doc early morning,and what if it becomes serious,would they amputate my finger,i imagined myself with an amputated finger....awwwwww it was disgusting!!
15 mins,the needle was still residing in my finger,unwilling to leave the poor finger!At an instance,i wanted to call my mom,but if she calls my father in turn,he'd get an attack ,we'd surely have to visit hospital in that case.(he's that fragile in our case):P..
I am a strategist,I decided,i'll have to play a surgeon...imagining all the consequences.after all the futile efforts of 123 go! plucking system,i moved it moved my flesh, half an inch from my fingers tip,and finally mission successfull!!!
I came out of the bath room,and rubbed the tiny blood drop at my finger against my sisters arm,and told her"i love you!" this was the right time,i could make her realize her-that self happiness is not all,a human being has to care for,you can cry,laugh,infact peirce the needle inside to get a smile on your loved ones...rather being 'J,' when your sisters awarded for some thing she worked hard for...I hope she realize...... she cried for a while,looking at me when I was busy taking the pictures of the book mark...I did make a hole,from the same needle and attached a lace to it....
And here I am blogging with my single hand,with the pain reluctant to leave...infact paining my shoulder,which i cannot move,this time coz of the needle,the uncle peirced in to my arm for giving me T.T!!.. :(

this book mark costs a lot.isn't it??? :P

good things do not come to an end ;)

Tension before exams,tension during exams,tension after exams!!!

these three T's trust me...they can bring ones soul outta mouth :p.
don't know about others,but they do,to me!
why not write exams properly...and escape these 3 T's..but no!!!!!i promise God every time -"do it this time......i'll do it better in next sem..."but....

and this time these T's were at their worst!!!
JNTU releases results exactly after a month after the completion of exams..this time,it was more than a month.and to our horror, valuation pattern of our papers was changed, of my friends told me..."oh...u mean they are not going to give you marks for any thing...u can write a blog -good things come to an end!"(heee hee heee...and here I am writing one,but with a different title.)
Rumors were at its peak, in fact i heard that 70%of the students flunked and the university's re- correcting all the papers :p some said-the site of jntu is under construction that's the reason they've kept our results on hold!(results on hold eh?my breath was on hold :P)

i remember..i didn't log in my orkut/gtalk/yahoo coz i was bugging people with my results tension.
few weird things i did to patao God!

  • kept maun wrath,for a day(this was the day when result was expected).How happy my class mates were,that they don't have to tolerate my chatter patter,but i too irked them by my sign language :p
  • wrote a three page letter addressing God,that too went on the terrace and wrote it.I remember i did it last sem too and it gave positive results so..this time too..i did!(the funda behind writing it on the terrace is that..i feel there we(me n god) can have a direct contact,with no walls and windows making boundaries between us!)was this secret to be kept a secret only? :p
  • did extra prayers.
  • though i wasn't logging in orkut,(it's the only connection between me and my old buddies)I sms'd them saying-"plzz pray,plzz pray!!"
  • my day started at 0400 hours....
  • once in a auto,me and my frnd we both were eating peas,and i took six of them,in my hand...these six were the subjects,and each sweet peas in my mouth means,i cleared a subject,and a bitter one if any would signify my failure in any six of them... :p...hopefully all were sweet! :)
I feel,there should be a partnership between universities and telephone companies...the sms rate was so high,stupid freinds of mine used to redicule me smsing "results are out! they are out!"and with out cheking if the results were out,i use to forward it to all..and in turn use to be...again a chain of sms's..:p
I annoyed every body with my pitch starting with a raag--mummmmmmmmmmmy ...........
when will they come!?

We all knew,that they release it when we don't expect...the tension was really building day by day..the 70% failed rumour ,change of valuation pattern....err!and the thought that i didn't start my year with dahi-shakkar was eating me(though i started it with yummy pastries)

9th jan:i hardly listen classes,left with no option we play tik tak toe and other stupid games.but thanks to vodafone network,the ppl outside the campus were reachable that day...i was chatting with my frends at home,and my frnz bro was giving us updates at the latest on india results/manabadi.
I was returning home,my frnz in the bus were reading out the jokes and stuff from my inbox,and suddenly one of them said-hey results are out!!!i started shivering,my face turned pale,as if voldermoth was in front of me!:p..or any death angels were around..coz i always got my results on phone,and this time i just came to know that they were out,the result was not in front of me as allways...i had to change a bus,to reach my home..thank god a friend of mine was with me..she literally took my hand in to hers and my other hand,was busy sending sms' of my close frnd,i came to know she cleared them all...this was the one who always gave me my result..i called her i had to take an auto again to reach home..(coz we took the wrong bus)
More Five minutes to reach home,toli chowki cross roads:
My heart beat at a unusual rangged,it was my frnz bro,he told "haan didi,aap pass ho gaye ho!"i disconnected...jumped..once,twice,thrice!!!unable to believe,i called him again...-"sach me???sach bol..."He gave the phone to his mom,and aunty confirmed that ya...u did it!I again jumped and shouted "yess yess yess!!!" hugged the freind behind...if she wouldn't have been there,i am sure i'd have hugged ppl around..:p..the auto walas stared at me...ppl were like awwwww with there eyes wide open,and hands on their mouths,as if jumping and hugging was prohibitted on roads!
I then called my mummy and few old pals of mine and called my pa!reached home and told all my friends online..(i dare not call them online frenz..coz they are not less than ppl around me!my regular pals i mean). pa gifted me a watch ... a citizen watch..and my sis!!she felt he brought her one the next day!!!!!

well..i didn't felt J in return...
I was so happy that i could explode!
so happy...that i could puke rainbows!!!
lines borrowed from a friend.thanks swappy,they were hit on orkut and I hope they'll be here too... :)

I hate keys!!!

31st December 07,
10:30,is it a time to sleep?that too on 31st?nobody would even imagine of welcoming a new year with tears...but i did..:(wept and wept and tried to sleep desperately,coz the thought of crying on a 31st night,would make me cry more..if i wouldn't fall asleep before 12!the reason why i cried? my pa,and his superstitious thoughts,would rather say"theories,"implanted in his mind by my great "mathey!"he yelled at me, for i kept the empty tumblers in front of the house,to refill them when the water supply would come at 11..he kept shouting until i lost my "in from one and out from the other ear limit,"and my Lacriminal glands started functioning..producing tears,and before pa could see my wet face and start his another dose of nagging,i rushed in to my room,switched off the lights and fell on my bed(how dramatic know?)and cried and cried untill all the 3 pillows on the bed went wet,the worst part when i cry is,that I reminisce all the worst things of my life(not lived that much though)and cried all together ,for all things i lost/hate in quotas;that was till the 3 pillows on the bed got wet!
11:45,I stopped crying,for i realized ,that i'dnt fall asleep before 12! and i prayed to god,till it clicked 12,i could here the crackers going off !
12:05,mom comes in with dahi-shakkar(sugar),according to her dahi shakkar would gift us-luck ,and it'd be the shubh shubh year ahead..welll was it shubh shubh...??
