MY beloved lamp!!

saved !!
saved hard saved 2.5 K!! :D
well...that's the figure from which i wanted to buy a lamp,for my new L.C.D..(not new any more..it's 6 months old now)not exactly L.C.D,to decor it beside L.C.D!
42"big!!and a finely polished brand new table!what was missing was the lamp..n so i decided to buy one!

It wasn't certain that we'd go shop..after a long day of hunting-shunting of project instis...,unless ur sis wants an excuse to buy herself a birth day dress! :D

City center shopping mall:
It was saturday-half of the mall was full with kids,all uncles,aunties..and some stupid regular chiks moving around to check out what was new,as if they own the mall..
a store called i-collection!furniture bazaar..
we entered with a great hope that we'd find some thing..
I found no lamp around my range..
poor moi :(
I felt so poor..

Looking at the range of the things,we moved towards the opposite mall...@Home!
My last visit to @Home was with my Pa!Me was a rich girl at that time,with Pa nodding not a single No to any thing!!
Every step made me realize ah!How poor I am...how poor I am..but at the same time,i was elated that I am gonna buy some thing out of my own money..not earned,but saved..

What craziness conquered people I don't understand...One complete floor was full of candle stands...varying from a size of candles to as large as ahhh!! My lcd!?yes.. :P(really couldn't compare anything except my L.C.D)
Technology's at it's peak and people still opt for candle stands eh?I wonder if they light any in them :D


Another floor...~~~~~~Lamps~~~lamps~~lamps~~~~~lamps~~
which one should I choose!?If I had my pockets full...trust me i'd have bought all of them..they were that good!
I found one..Tall..all of steel..and two attachments made of glass,in which the bulb would hide some where inside! :Dlike leaves attached to the branch of a tree!!ah!ahh!no!the attachments were not like leaves!my taste isn't that bad..
neither it was green..
The price tag showed-4200..now 2300/-
my eyes popped out..such a beautiful thing in so less!
with a pride an owner should show..i called the sales manager,to fix a bulb and give a demo! Alas!!he said-"ma'm the circuitry isn't good,that's the reason we are giving it away in 23.." :(
I scolded him..."what should we do with the lamp if the circuitry is bad?"
I'd have bought it and keep it aside,if it wasn't my first buy!!Mum 'd have killed me..if....
then my sisters sight shifted towards a lamp..small..short too...but cute..touch it..it glows,once again it glows brighter..once more and much brighter!!
mY first buy! a lamp 900!!


I thought i'll buy another one..but all lamps and nothing to sit on and admire it would be a waste...I gave it a try for the bean bag..though it wasn't fixing in my budget!!My sisters words flashed-"bean bags aren't good for the spine!"
so i wouldn't take a chance with my spine at least!!(with my spine at least well..thats another big story,which i'll surely write when i get time,probably in my sem break)..
I recollected,I saw a puffy..in the adjacent mall..

Though I was quite attracted towards the candle stands,which came 2 for 6oo to me,i preferred buying some thing which'd raise my parents eyebrows!And they did on seeing the puffy which came for 900 to me!!puffy's this thing to sit on,which's got threads like noodles on it! :D
I have the bills...I don't think I'll throw them..i'll ever throw them..I have many such old things,which kept together can be a museum.. :D
Preserving them's a big task,for my Pa is on his duty of discarding things on every sunday!so..they are still there lying in my bag!


And and and...and..The next day my Pa gave me 2K saying "that was your pocket money...so.."
and so..I have a plan..i'll shift the lamp to the master bedroom,and buy another one!!not now...not till I have my pockets filled to afford a tall handsome..?ah sexy? ah what ever....it's a lamp!!!

PS:I was so busy in switching the two malls ..I din't give a chance to my sister to buy a thing!! :D

Yes!you!!roll no:28!!

what can one do..when there's a power cut or when ur server shows "network time out!"..?
well i probably write my next post..yesterday when there was one,I inaugrated my glass paints kit,and drew a butterfly,which kinda looked out of this world..:P
ok m not here to post updates on what i spoiled!!!
but this time how spoiled i am..
It takes 2 years to turn from a teachers pet to a spoiled brat..Is it?
May be my linear exponential decaying curve,started from the end of my 10th..ah..no!I don't think so.. I was a perfect mugger(here means who mugs things :P)at that time...
My first remark in my 10th standard: my class teacher saying-"people try to progress,rectify faults,flaws...but you are getting lower and lower day by day!!"(did she mean i am becoming neech day by day?!OMG what wrong did I do?)...
Did my +2 from a corporate college,where lecturers harass students for state ranks..top scores in IIT,AIEEE,BITSAT..
This was the time a brat,lazy,dumb head,tube light was getting baked...I've decided,that I wouldn't put my children in to a corporate college,coz they actually loose the concept of why they are here?to study or to avoid the lecturers dose of nagging...they loose the interest of even few %'s they had in studies,in the whole process of hating their lecturers for assigning them so much work.
Thanks to the faculty I landed in a very good engg insti.. :D(which comes first if you count from last,thanks to my EAMCET scores).
I still regret for not performing well at that time...
Well...focusing light on my present!
I don't believe,what I am today..from a teachers favourite student to a lecturers most staring object!!..Well...all aren't "aankhon ka taara of lecturers" at this age,except few of the first benchers..the chamchus,who take marks in viva as if its their copy right!
Now why did I choose this only topic to write..though it's kinda boring...to critisize some one..
well i take a stand now..
what does she think?I score aewein in the finals..?ok! I don't answer her when she asks me Q'ns during the class..that doesn't mean I 'm the most dumb chik in the class..How can I answer any?when I didn't here even an 'A' of her lecture...come on now,the fault's not all mine...she makes us sleep daily by her lecture...which sans any interest put in by herself,her neck moving as if doing kathak...She reminds me of an automatic toy,traditionally dressed,which starts dancing,when it's key's rotated :D
Ok! I am sorry,but she does bring a picture of that toy,what can I do..?it's all my imagination..and it's not intentional please!!
some one's cell beeps and she looks at me..
some one's murmuring and her eyes target our bench!!
When we make hell lot a noise and she starts a surprise Q'n shoot out,the fifth or third turn is mine..
"roll no 28,if I see you talking next time,i'll suspend you from my classes for whole sem!!(in a fraction of nano second I thought,yes i'll talk now!now! now!now!...roz ki kit kit se ek baar me hi story over!):D <<<< this smiley shows how shame less I am no?
And I was so happy that i escaped from any of the seminar giving punishment,it was yesterday,when I and my friend were fighting for a pen and some other devi handed over a seminar topic to me! duh uhh!stupids,we were fighting to pick a pencil up!!
and I have to give a seminar on tuesday,and it's my first one,...I wonder how it'd be!! I think i'd realize then,how it feels on dias to get ignored by students...even if I do,i won't listen her classes,coz its since past 2 days am concentrating on the classes,and she never said-"yes u roll no 28!".....



Moral of the story is nothing!! I don't blame my lecturers for what they are...how they teach....cos,this wouldn't have been..if i wouldn't have been here...in the most incongorous college :(
If only i'd have perfomed a little better in my enterance exam...a little better.. :(




PS:look!my aim here was to criticize lakshmi...udaya lakshmi!!!but I took it all on myself...look how good I am at heart...may be not at studies...but at heart..
I took the credit din't I ? :P

Oui! it's one year!!!

yeah!it's an year with Orkut!I no I haven't hit a bulls eye...but thanks to the site for it sponsored me few trust worthy,sweet friends...
defamed Orkut!Adnan murder case,she eloped with him..he eloped with her..etc etc;
It was some where in the midst of 1-5 march ,i created an account..with hardly 5-6 freinds on the site..i was never attracted to the site..it was only when I saw A.G's community,my journey with orkut began..writing posts,feed backs..it had to begin some how...

I never knew one could poke in to some one else's life so much and it wouldn't even bother them... :P
Proudly spying,lurking I changed my second name as-the spy!(i don't think i'll ever change it..)
I dedicate this blog to all my pals,once virtual identities..
I can't write a testi for each one of you,but here's a sneak peak about what I have in my heart for you..


Raghav jhavar:A vasavi lad,we don't know each other,we aren't friends either..but man you'r here coz you were the first out sider in my friend list..so I thought of giving you some fame through my blogger..:D

then came madam hue(minni)..
Minni:we met in A.G's community...we always fought-"my A.G!my A.G!" :p
we were thickest friends,just like jai and veeru :P..infact I saw her as an elder sis..It sounds absurd but even after spending hours together after college with her on net,I couldn't gain her trust ..some thing silly happened and we broke up..ahh ah..she left me..The day you left me hue,I saw a dream - a sadhu saying me-"she'd return after 2 years!! :P"
with hue,few of her friends came free to me :P ..Who left my friend list too with her...
she left me,when I had exams on my head..
poor my soul ..how much did it cry..:(
but today I m happy though you aren't there you left some one behind for me.. Thanks, for that!
lesson learnt: would take net pals light heartedly minus the four pearls which 'd always shine in my friends list ..in my life!!well...they aren't annu,swappy,jeet,hims!!so i didn't take permision of either of them to post them here on my blog!! ;D
picture courtesy:anukul

Here they are...
Well..some one was still there to wipe my tears..and very much happy too that my attention's now diverted towards him.. Jeet!
Jeet:jiggy...piggy..doggy..Mr.flirt :P
Once mine and hues mutual friend ..he came spying at my SB asking-"who was there on femina?"(when I and hue were discussing A.G on femina Miss India)..
ah..jeet..jeet ..jeet..what should I say..people who don't have you are so unlucky..:D
he wouldn't mind you ruining his office hours,though his schedule's damn hectic.
I regularly eat his brain asking him stupid Q'ns...about his college life,love life and about the things in his office..though he's damn busy..poor guy answers all my Q'ns with out any hich kich,
i bug him all the time his name in my gtalk list blinks green..
he's very bad at gossiping,story telling..:D
And some times boring too..lazy at scrapping..just scraps-"hi!how are u?"
"GM!"
"GA!"
Eeeks..Jeet this is the boring part of yours..


I never thought i'd befriend him -Annu..friend of my two very closest college friends.
Anukul:
Bhai!!!Annu!that's how i address him..we met when farin(my college pal) wasn't coming online and he was eager to know ,why isn't she.
ever ready to help in sorting out problems with my P.C.
He's the one who scraps me colorful graphics in my SB!Thank you for all of them,though you've stopped doing that now..I wonder y.. :P
it's his message when my cell beeps in the mid night.now a days my ek mathr sahara to give me match updates when I am in the college.he's the one who wouldn't mind me calling/messaging him up,even in the mid night..
keep the sms thing going on bhai..i love it!
With Annu and farin came himank..Hims!

Himank:
I don't know much of him..except that he's a great artist..awesome with brushes and his digital paintings..and now a movie too..
he'd never say u no! when asked for a painting.
he's a bit boring,but very good at heart,ready to lend hand with brushes any time... :D
thank you hims,for the digital painting of mine..Isn't this blog sounding like a thanks giving speech? :P
Hims,hope you get your hers soon..and please learn how to flirt..i'd love send you to Jeet to give you some tips on flirting.. :D


...just after the hues episode..(is hue the epicenter of my world of virtual entities..?i dare not say no! yes! she is!she was!for she is no where in the scene now)when I decided that i'd give up talking to strangers,and start doing some serious work,at least read a book online,I asked for a book called :tell me your dreams,in the community,and entered the fourth pearl..ah..duffer..eh?Swappy!
Swapnil:Swappy...sapna jaisa... :D duffer!that's swapnil phadke,title sponsorer of many of my blogs..he came giving me the link of the book in my SB..I didn't read the book yet,but we became very good friends..
He's so much like my elder sis..so he's like my elder bro,tried to inculcate habbit of reading in to me,but all futile...(no wonder am so good at grammar!)my english guru some times...reads desi,watches desi...sab angrezi...except his food,a typical mumbaiah...hogs on dosa..sandwitch daily!loves bread,cheese and tea,and made me try to.. :D
my view about mumbaikars would've never changed,it had only for this guy..
he has always helped my tube blink at the share market,economics area.he'd leave any aunt behind in gossiping..he'd listen to any thing you want be it ur visit to the mall,ur hair cut any thing.. :D
some times I doubt if he's a guy,but it's just his inquisitive nature that makes me feel so...
you can go yup yup yup when he's around and he's never bored.no matter how worst you are at any thing,he can go on and on encouraging you to strive for better..(like my blogging,you wouldn't have got to see this many blogs if he wouldn't have encouraged me,reading them though he's a kanjoos at commenting!)
with such great friends around I don't think I need any more now,Orkut addiction's lessened ..for you all have managed a place in my cell...in my heart

well..it was very difficult to compress you all in this small space,it has been very graceful of you all to stand by me at times of joy and sorrow!
Thank you all for being there...
Kudoos to our friend ship!


PS:thanks to orkut,for it showed the life outside my imagination,re-united few friends,gave few new ones! :)

He helps those who help themselves.


Well...this was to be published long back..!!
The Winter was awesome...With all jackets,sweaters,mufflers and stuff...But, do you think every one gets to shoot the same line?Ah..no!certainly not..amongst the Lakhs..of..ah can't precise what figure..I came across a small girl..
On a chilly morning,on my way to the college,I saw a girl..ya..whose picture you can see here on the post.I first couldn't make it out whether it was a girl/boy,for I could see just a swarthy face..chapped lips..wrapped in an old shawl..collecting all rubbish from the foot path..and putting it into the small born fire which she created to get some warmth!! It was exam time..and I could hardly even think of talking to her. Done with my Exams..results...She went out of sight for few days..
Two weeks ago:
Ok!she was a girl..An untidy yellow T-shirt and trousers..(oh..this was the thing I could hardly associate a beggar (may be) or a homeless girl)and a sandal with a 'hollywood' sticker on it..Now!!Holly wood's a leading foot wear store here!!
Here comes another morning and another..a whole week gone,crossing the road pitying and averting her.I saw her daily on the foot path...I went baffled spotting her with bangles..chewing tobacco.
now!where did she get those bangles from??she became the weeks tea time discussion topic with my sis!!
I felt shamefull,her grimmed face kept me gleaming at nights ..how could I avert my self from such a situation..then i'd rethink..am i the only person who's seeing her daily?why's no body getting her out of that place?
I finally decided..how late it'd be tomorrow to the college..u ought to talk to the girl!!
With my half baked telugu,I started the conversation..I asked her,if she'd stay in an orphanage..she agreed!! i felt so happy!!whoa!!!
I imagined what reactions people would give me if I settle this girl in a hostle or an orphanage..my sister would realize that I am not the same jerk she left me years ago..i've changed!My parents would get an idea that ya..she'd survive if sent her over seas for education..huhh!leave about others...how great i'd feel.. as great as God!(i am no ways comparing me to you god!ok?!).
I managed to get few contact numbers of orphanages..(thanks to Annu for the numbers)
I googled if there were any in my locality and found few of them..dialled the first one.
hyderabad council of human welfare,A man piks up the phone and says-"no no! only boys!!only boys!!"(human welfare eh?girls aren't human beings?)..
then the other says-"no ma'm this is not a missionary..it's a hospital."
and after hearing few other no's!there was this-missionaries of charity of mother teresa which agreed..though this one was quite far away from my place,i decided to take her there.
The day after shivrathri..tuesday morning,it was a holiday for me.I dressed myself in cotton to sound like a social worker :D.
started for the foot path..(sounds funny,but that's where she lived!)
I prayed for the bus to come..I lied to mom saying that I have to buy a book, so that i can study whole day,i am leaving early..mom warned me not to intervene in to this matter,a few days back.so,i dared not tell her that i was going for this!I kept waiting for the bus for more than 10 minutes..bus delay is it a presage of some thing negative??? i thought!!
I reached the foot path,yes she was there...with full enthu i said-"nadu"(means comeon in telugu).
never did i know that she'd do this!! she gestured a no!!
the dream of a philanthropist shattered like a mirror broken into thousand pieces my thought of she waving me in the orphanage broke..i tried pleasing her...she didn't agree.she told -she's got a brother who's a driver and he'd beat her if she'd go!!
I returned home..like a looser,who couldn't even please a little girl.do i look evil?i thought.
I was heart broken and I decided that i'd nt even look at her from now on..
One of my net pal gave me tips how to please her..which I thought i'd do!
The next day I narrated the same story to one of my friend and she in turn narrated the same to her parents..and what I get to hear from my friend the next day is-"Nameera,my pa said-u don't have to interact with her..!!she's some girl............."
But is it right?!I donno! if it is or not..
what I realized is-'God helps those who help themselves'
and she was simply not ready to be helped out of her life
ultimately life is all about.... you are where you are cos that's where you want to be!
Today:I went searching for the girl...thinking may be I can write a part-2 of this blog..but unfortunately,she wasn't there...

Thanks sis!for helping me how to conclude...
