Yap yap yap!
Yeah it has yet again been a long time since I dropped by…the world has changed a lot in these few months. My world has altered almost irrevocably for the better and I no better than to utter a single word of complaint (for that matter I cant even think of any!!). Jokes apart, lots of things have happened…but some have been quite a handful and they do need mentioning.
So lets take’em on one by one :
Well I started watching cricket and obviously supporting India when I was in Std. III (God that’s more than 11 years back now) and believe me I had never thought that India will achieve these heights ( though I dreamed of this a many times!) Many captains and coaches hence India reached this milestone under the captaincy of the one and only, The Golden Boy, Mahendra Singh Dhoni and the coaching of the South African great, Gary Kirsten…its seems like a dream but its true and am really loving it! (Related NEWS : Dhoni got married (yeah so?? Let him be married its his personal life man why the hell do all the NEWS channels have to telecast this story forever and ever??)
I found my life…and she found me too…and so did the family as a whole!!
3. I Got a Job
Yes, finally I got a job. 5 interviews, 8 writtens later finally I landed into a job and that too when I was least expecting it! And you know what, I ma looking forward towards the joining with all my heart…if only it came a bit earlier or if only I knew when I have to join!! (Yeah I know!! Keeping my fingers crossed )
4. Back to Fatness
Now this is where the ones with a dark tinge to them appear, I mean the NEWS. I have again started piling up weight..Gone are the days when through ultimate determination and perservation I had succeeded in cutting myself down to the eighties…but somehow, due to one reason or the other I am back in business and i think the dreaded century isn’t that far away!!
5. Bandhs, Strikes, Naxals and Politics
This particular week has like something I had never ever envisaged. I mean out of the seven days of the week, 4 were bandhs. One , Bharat Bandh against inflation. Two and Three, Bharat Bandh by the Naxals protesting the killing of a top guy of their cock-n-bull outfit. Four, Jharkhand Bandh protesting the vandalism of the Rajrappa Temple.
About the Bharat Bandh, it was an all party thingy (of course it means that it was led by the opposition parties) to protest the decontrol of the petrol prices, which was a inevitable step that the government had to take one day or the other. I mean it was like draining the government off Thousands of Crores of Rupees every year which wasn’t helping India’s economic growth in any possible way. Yes the step will now cause people to dig deeper into their pockets, but I don’t think the calling and staging of Bharat bandhs is ever going to help in any fathomable way. About the Naxals and their various sympathizers like Arundhati Roy, all I can think of is SOD OFF!
The vandalism at the Rajrappa Temple was something very very unacceptable. How dare looters break the idol of the Shakti, the guilty must be caught at the earliest and the punishment should be as stringent as possible, because you can’t hurt people’s religious sentiments and get away man, you can’t ever.
6. Rupee gets a symbol
Well this was today. Its great isn’t it…we have got a symbol for our currency : The Rupee.
Will giving a symbol to the rupee raise its international standard, its international value? yes I know its only the fifth currency in the world to gain a symbol, but still is it going to be of any significance at all as far as the strength of the rupee is concerned? I don’t think so…but anyways lets see…
7. I BECAME AN ENGINEER!!!
