Yet Another Software Junk | മറ്റൊരു പാഴ്‌ജന്മം

If I were Thomas Alva Edison, you might be still in Darkness.

On a lazy Saturday evening at TCR, I thought of roaming around with David (Yamaha CruxR). No reason to ride upto Town Hall and take a 'U turn' !! as soon as I reached the swapna theater junction, someone aroused my college memories. He walks like my pre-degree friend. yeah..same height, same gait. but his hair is more brown now?!!!. But his face is not visible at that angle. Is it him?

ohh may be somebody else. why should I get into a situation of making a mistake. what should I ask him ? "are you my college friend?", his answer might be "entha college friendine kanda ariyille? chumma number irakkalle?!!" (Istam, one of my favorite Malayalam movie, style) ("Can't you identify your college friend, don't mess with me")

Yeah ... since I was in a cool mood, I didn't want to mess with anybody. hence decided move on. after a few meters, David stopped. and asked me !!!
"Why can't you mess with him. if it is him then ?"
yup he is correct, let me try then.

By that time that person overtook me. He didn't talk to me. Then he might not be my friend. "David, you confused me, saala". But... his walking style!!!.

I decided to 'mess' with him.
"Excuse me... Are you ..." He turned back !!!

Baang its him !!! after 11 years !!! Antonio George !!! he is in front of me.

"you are too fatty buddy", he can't believe his eyes. ohh that is why he couldn't recognize me. [ I was just kind of skeleton at that time, thanks to Chennai food with a lot of oil/gee.] He was returning home from Town Hall Library. He is a great reader !!!

May be just 3 phone calls we made in these years. Other 8 calls couldn't connect him.(We should have been use NOKIA then). Funny thing is I couldn't find him at Orkut. But found him on a Sarkkeet (roam around ;-)

Though 11 years have gone by,it never felt like we were apart for so many years. He is always in my very little memory. Some friendships might be like that... No phone calls, No chit-chat, No Orkut, No face to face meetings... still they might be nearer to your heart.

A lot to tell about him; but scrapping only a single thing.
This person injected a craze for English movies. Prior meeting him, I have seen only two English movies BenHur and Ten commandments. He gave me a list of 14 movies which includes Mackenna's gold, Predator-1, Terminator-2, Indiana Jones Series, Home Alone series, The Mask, Schindler's list. With in two week I had strikeout 12 from that list. I couldn't find remaining two anywhere :-(

Only two people were there to help me avoiding the boredom of my St.Thomas' College life. Other one was Joe Francis.

Of course, how could we resist ourself to enjoy Dosa and red chutni from Hotel Gopi. Still same quality, same refreshing smell. Whenever I remember my Pre-degree days, I do remember Room 101 on Bell tower, Hotel Gopi and of course Prof P C thomas' tuition center where we baptized "everyday" for two year; no left turn; no right turn; don't look at girls; don't talk; don't be late . what a jail yaar. But it has a significant role on what I am now :-)

When I moved out from my old company, I have forgot to backup the bookmarks from Mozilla FireFox. Hence lost a lot of links.

So developed a new page with full of bookmarks. :-)

If you are interested, you may make it as your default home page.

Drag the above link onto your home button.

Also let me know some more interesting webpages to visit.

its working !!!

It was my last week in Chennai… Just thought of visiting a few friends and say the last BYE. Finishing my assignments with the previous company, with relieving and experience letter in hand what else one will do other than roaming around. Needless to say, I was in a total lazy mood.

As soon as I reached our hero's house, I sat down in his bean-bag (laid down to be specific). I always loved that comfortable position with 'Lay’s (Pepsico’s Junk food)’ in one hand and the TV remote in other hand.

"I wanna lazier" I whispered.

"No… you just can't" He dismissed my idea :-(

"Why??", I just wondered.

"ha ha requires some essential qualities which you don't have"

"Poda, I have been sitting idle for almost one month like many other Indians. ...Not doing anything at all !!!

"Umm..Gimme an answer for this", he shot a question at me. (Any life-line hain kya?)

"Can you glue on to this TV watching useless programs all the time?" (That time, we didn’t had any TV @ D-16, our room)
"Can you simply eat such junk pizzas round the clock?"? (out-of-syllabi question, from where this pizza came to picture?)
"Can you sit on this Bean bag for around 8 hours without moving your butt?" (Need I sit so long to prove...I am lazy?)

He concluded.

"That is why I am telling you...this is not an easy job. You need planning, determination and above all, whole hearted commitment!!!"

Key to be a LAZY man, WOW!!!

I saw these words (or similar words) in many Orkut profiles and blogs.

A few thoughts...

The moment you start using Talcum powder, you are not what you are (you are yearning for a better face) ;-) Is it hard to agree?

The moment you dye black/brown your hair, you are trying to imitate somebody else…

The moment you start thinking of hair-fixing, you are proving that you are not ready to accept the real “YOU”

Are you using lipstick? (Girls, pardon me…) You are hiding what you are…

Admit who you are or what you are... and be proud of it
