Girl speak : "Main tumaharey bacche ki maan ban ne waali hoon"

First up, it's not about Sex. Definitely not.
Intelligence, mobile phone bill & sperm quality - they all are interrelated.
I read this "Intelligent men have best sperms". Taking it a step further, the researcher says "All things held equal, good sperm and good brains go together". In line with this, I have put forward a new theory, which is applicable only to my age group (+/- 5 years), it is a little offensive so please please ignore it: "Lower the IQ higher the phone bill". Higher mobile phone bill affects your brain as well as your sperm quality. Last I checked around 3 years ago, I had an IQ of 126. Not sure which direction it has gone now as I started using a mobile phone about 2 years ago but I have managed to keep the bill low.
In between I compartmentalized and I took time out to lust about Nandita Das and Sarah Palin. What an achievement....Guys and girls please give me feedback on my taste.
Question of the decade for all the movie buffs: What is Sholay's saddest scene? Did you say "Basanti in paagal kutthon ke samne math nachna" : NO.
Or Thankur's entire family getting killed : NO.
The answer : "Thakur ki shaadi nahin hui thi aur gabbar ne uske dono haath bhi kaat diye". Wicked, isn't it?
And how can I forget Kareena Kapoor after her success with Jab we met. Good movie! What really surprises me is, I know at least 5 girls who believe the character played by Kareena is within them but not 1 guy who relates to Shahid Kapoor....no one even wants to be him. Hats off to the script writer.
This is for all the girls. A wise man said "when you are dating, don't get swayed by what a guy says to you, just look for the things he does, and that will tell you volumes about whether the guy truly loves you or not".
Last but not the least, 'thank you' Anonymous for egging me on. I have not stopped writing nor was it a case of 'writer's block'. It was just a question of publishing the stuff that I had written. May be you can call it "publishing block".

Online messages (Face book, Orkut & e-mails) : 27. Oh man! Technology is improving our recall ability.
Offline messages : 15+
In person : Could not keep count, pretty much all of my colleagues. What a loser, why should I go to work on my B'day? The good wishes and lots of if compensates.
In person (out on a date) : 1.
Total = 50+.
Then I take my mom to Vasant Kunj to visit our family doctor. Two kids on the bicycle could not hold back their curiosity and they ask "Are you a cricketer?", How long is the pitch? Have you met Sachin? What is your name and more...
Yes, I loved all the attention I got. All of you made me feel special and I really mean it.

Every smoker picks up the butt by seeing someone else in action. These days, I see plenty pick up cigarettes once they start working....I feel sad and somewhat disappointed because usually a person is past 20 years of age when going to the workplace for the first time. And at that age, you are easily past 'young impressionable age' category. Is it peer pressure? Probably. Peer pressure can make people do some really shocking things..why..even I picked up blogging to tell one of my journalist friend that "you don't really need to go to the journalism school to take up writing". She writes far better than I do and the fact that my blogging has evolved into an idle Sunday afternoon hobby are separate discussion points.

CEO of a company has just lead his company to year over year double digit growth in an extremely tough economic situation. Board of Directors tell him to recognize all the key employees at a gala event where all the important members from investor community will be present. At the venue, big boys from marketing, supply chain, sales, service delivery are there and there is basically a procession of suited and booted smart business people.

After fielding plenty of brickbats from the analyst community, I have decided to add this update. I mean no harm, I have no affiliations and I don't intend to please anyone directly or indirectly through my blog. I am an ordinary 'information hound' and I like commenting from the sidelines by being completely neutral. Do whatever, the title of this blog ain't changing. And yes, I want to shout it out to the world - "I love my job". That said, I feel compelled to come out with something which will resonate with my clan. So here it goes..

Everyone who has played cricket in India has played gully cricket at some point in time. I can tell all the people this much...when we guys played cricket, we exhibited the highest possible spirit, much higher than what the best international team put on display at Sydney. For example, we would never claim a catch that was not clean enough.
It is an open secret that Aussies always used off-field tactics, mental degeneration and on field abuses to be world beaters. Along came a team which stuck these to them on their rear so bad that it hurt. I can't help but recall this exchange of verbal volleys between Ramnaresh Sarwan (West Indies) & Glenn McGrath (Australia) in a Test match. After Lara's dismissal to McGrath, Sarwan came in and he was taking guard.
McGrath : How does Lara's dick taste?
Last but not the least, how can I forget Robert Ogilvie, wondering who this guy is? The Brisbane streaker who ran in and Symonds did the rest. When asked "do you regret, what you did"? His answer just takes the cake and candies "No, you live only once, don't you?"

Often we all run into people who just complain. Complaints about relationships, complaints about jobs/careers/colleagues, complaints about power cuts, potholes, corruption. When face-to-face with these complaints, I am helpless and I really have not succeeded in doing much other than being a patient listener/friend. These complaints, to my mind stems from some sort of dissatisfaction. Will we ever realise, we have the power to change, we have the power to choose and turn things around big and small?
The most common complaint I hear is about an 'inefficient system' because of politicians. A wise man once said "A government is nothing but a mass reflection of the people it represents". I am surprised how such an off-the-cuff remark can can be so true! There are so many people I know who just complain about the government and don't ever go out and cast their vote. I was hardest hit when one of them turns out to be my best friend. His refrain being, "I pay taxes so I have every right to complain, whether I vote or not is irrelevant". I am so sure he is one of the many millions out there who say the same thing. It is like saying "I will have sex and produce kids but their upbringing is not my responsibility". I am definitely not trying to equate sex with paying taxes but I am just making up an extreme example. Friends - this one goes out for you all > imagine, if your parents said this to you when you were born...
Below are some common lines I hear from my 'educated-yet-will-remain-illiterate' friends and acquaintances. Goes without saying, I am not the one to keep quiet after hearing it.
* "I don't vote because there is no one worth voting" -- [I say] This so reeks of lack of willingness to take responsibility of the situation. Isn't it?
Sun is Sun, Earth is Earth and India is India, but my dying wish - We must not be a country full of people who keep moaning and do nothing.

My New Year Resolution : Spread happiness, love & never type *one* message and send it to all the people in the phone book.
Just Personalise IT.
