Durga Puja!

The best four days of the year for any bengali. This time however there were just three. And it got over so bloody fast. When i think about it now, its only a feeling of a distant involvement that engulfs me. I don't want to make this sound like an account of how the three days went like a third standard essay we were made to write after we got back from the puja vacations.
Being extremely busy in all the four days, getting to know so many people, getting close to them from different angles and suddenly the whole thing ends. After the fourth day we are suddenly thrown back into the mundane day to day routine. At times i get so pissed off with myself for having abandoned my routine to enjoy these three/four days. But then, its the most logical thing to do.
In the end however the sense of being in a huge void prevails. Don't know if it happens to me only

Is this the way one should live?

How You Life Your Life

You seem to be straight forward, but you keep a lot inside.You say whatever is on your mind. Other people's reactions don't phase you.You tend to have one best friend you hang with, as opposed to many aquaintences.You tend to dream big, but you worry that your dreams aren't attainable.
Another one of my great narcissistic quests..this however isn't as ego boosting as the last one and i am not the type that tries different combinations of responses to get an "ego inflator" (Now thats a term i had to invent for there isn't anything in my present vocabulary that fits the need of the hour) . If the great predictor thinks this is what i am, the so be it :-(

The unshakable!

Apparently there was a tremor some time around 9 :30 a.m. I didn't feel ANYTHING!! Can't believe i missed an earthquake! was sipping coffee in the I.C when it happened, anyways, nice thing...junta will be talking about it for sometime.
Nice indication of how jobless BITSians actually are, i came to check mail in the I.P.C and i find my mailbox filled with mails that said, "Did you feel the tremor"?...now thats either extreme concern or utmost vettiness (really sorry to use a non english word..but the word is more BITSian than any other language!)
Anyways, at least the quake ensured that my mailbox got a fresh lot of mails ;)

I even have a hidden Talent !!

Your Hidden Talent

Your natural talent is interpersonal relations and dealing with people.
You communicate well and are able to bring disparate groups together.
Your calming presence helps everything go more smoothly.
People crave your praise and complements.
Check out this site...its nice to while away time in the I.P.C ... caters perfectly to the ego boosting needs of the narcissist :P

The war within

Do you ever fight with yourself? I do. For specific reason though...
no, disagreement with each other's views is not a reason any more. For we (me and myself) are in a state of perpetual discord over what we think or want to do. The fight starts when we end up agreeing on something. Sounds wierd does it? Thats because i believe a very old saying which goes, "If you got it without any pain, you got it wrong!" and if myself agrees with me so easily there must be something wrong. Wierd belief but it works....
Only the other day, we almost agreed on a girl without a fight...no, we ACTUALLY agreed...and God we were so wrong!!
Who wins the war is immaterial but there has to be a war...probably the only time a war in itself is useful and not what comes out of it. The whole thing might sound pretty absurd...but really can't help thinking this way
