So this is how it is. I have my boards, ya know THE boards in little more than 2 weeks. I have started preparaing for it now. I mean, I had learnt all the concepts in the IIT classes, but you know that is different from writing them down as a page long aswer for the board exam. It's because you should know where to draw the line, its like I can go on and on about Acid and Bases, but you should know what all to write, because if you write more than what's needed or something out of the text book, you end up losing marks.
The main challenge are the languages. Only serious muggers can do it all in less then a week. Mugging languages can be a real pain in the ass, writing down the answers on the paper 3 times, and then going on to the next one. That can be a real pain.
Guess what? I've finally stopped sleeping in the day, and am now like the average junta, who sleep in the night. The reason I think is not necessary to explain, as its obvious.
The other day I selected my BITSAT date, 20th May 4.30-7.30. Thats a really weird time slot. The best is the morning one you know from 8.30 to 11. But i preferred this one because I am a little bit cranky in the morning, but then the 4-7 one aint all that great either is it. Who likes to write an exam at 4. Thats like weird. But what the heck, an exam is an exam.
On other topics, I've been eating a lot lately, the "i am feeling like a loser" syndrome hits me everyonw and then, its really annoying, one second i am fine, and next i'm depressed, but i guess thats how its for everyone, so food is my stressbuster. I feel sex and food are the best stress busters, but since i aint getting any action, i have lots of food, though the non vegetarian intake has considerably reduced because of the obvious reasons.
My bro is obsessed with seding SMS's these days to my dad, dunno whats that all about.

As I picked up the three newspapers that we receive every sunday, i saw all three of them sporting almost identical headlines. "BIRD FLU REACHES INDIA". The only time I had heard of this earlier was on the OPRAH primetime advertisments. Over 50000 birds have died of the suspected bird flu in the last 15 days in the Maharashtra/Gujarat are. That's where its right now. Its affected the chickens in many of the 50 odd large poultry farms in the area. More bloodshed is to follow, coz apparently another 300,000 birds are gonna be slaughtered as a safety measure. They will be buried in deep pits. The cause is a H5NI avian flu virus. So people please becareful. The next time you visit McD or KFC, it could be your last meal. Nah i'm just messing with your heads. The virus apparently can't live at temperatures above 70 degress centigrade, and obviously we cook chicken or fry or bake whateva, at temp well over 100 deg. But don't eat chicken raw or uncooked, who knows... Posted by Picasa

my latest crush! Kaley Cuoco. Its an outrage if ya don't know who she is. She can currently be seen on 8 Simple Rules For Dating my Teenage Daughter as the hot and popular Bridget, and as Billie on Charmed. She's almost perfect. She looks incredible, is smart, but mostly shez just hot. Its great to see that in this world of drugs, illegal driving and weird sex, some celebrity stars do take the right path and not get into shit, others in this category include the Olsen Twins. Posted by Picasa

The grammy's were yesterday. Many dissapointments. I got about half an hour of the show. But god it was mind blowing.
The most vivid memory is perhaps of one of the most defining moments in music history.
ROCK-RAP and Pop merge to form an incredible fusion. While Jay Z and Linkin Park were jamming and really rocking the place, in the middle of the song, the music changed completely, i was like wtf, wha's happening. Chester B started singing a slower number, and from the shadows came Sir Paul and started taking over the song, while jay z was adding hi jhatkas to the song.
Another performance that i thoroughly enjoyed was Kanye West. Man i just love this guy's music. He's incredible. I don't care about his anti-american feeling, or that he's black, he's just so cool. He came with an entire state band, which started marching, and drummin, and then the sounds came, and then the all familiar voice of Kanye saying, "I ain't sayin shes a gol' digger, but shez messin with no broke nigga"
man that was electrifying.
Perhaps the biggest dissapointment was mariah carey not winning enough grammys. Three. Just three. and allthose at a pre-televised ceremony. It was awful. Her music this year was sensational. I cant stop humming the tunes of Its like that and We belong together. She really deserved this one this time. But the one who beat her were prolly more iconic than her. true legends. Delivering again n again for over 2 decades. Make way for U2. 5 grammy's and sweeping the show with their charisma, due to their album's breathtaking success, and an even weirder name, "How to dismantle an Atomic Bomb", whose justification Bono gave yesterday, sayin it was after his dad. Other winners include, Green day, John Legend, kanye west, Linkin park n jayz, Kelly clarkson.
Another dissapointment was that no indian went home with the gold. Anoushka and ASHA, comprised of two-fifth of the entire nominations, yet they succumbed to some other bloke. And the monk didnt make it either.
But the NIGHT belonged to U2!

One night at The Waterside

Thursday, February 02, 2006 0
yesterday was my parent's 21st wedding anniversary.
we all decided to go to this restaurant, called the waterfront. the place overlooks the hussain sagar lake here in hyderabad, but once you are inside you look at the lake in a totally different way. it looks so spectacular and marvellous, probably 'coz there's no stink of the lake, and no periodic noise of cars whooshing by at 100 kmph.
The place has an odd rule. One is supposed to pay Rs. 350 per person when one enters. This money is reedemable for food inside, but its to ensure minimum billing of 350, so that guys dont just come in for a juice or somethying.
We sat down.
My bro was all sad and stuff coz i had called him an "ass" few hours ago (he's 8).
It was less than 3 minutes of us sitting, that one waiter comes and starts serving some chana-like stuff into our plates. my dad and me look at each other. He says, "It must be complimentary". "But I thought you get to decide what you redeem for the 350" I asked.
I let that rest. Now one more guy came, and started serving some sort of fried chicken, now this was unusual. My mom who is th inquisitive one was on the phone, so she didnt bother much. Suddenly from the background, i heard a whisper. "arrey aa table ladu ra, table no.36 bhe".
me and my dad burst out LOL. My lil bro however was enjoying the food. the other three of us, hadnt touched out plates. The waiter came and took out plates away( the 3 of us). we started laughing even more. Then after a while, my mom finished the call and asked us what happened, we told her. OMG it was soo funny, all these waiters running around, tell us how sorry they were and how it never happened. I just wished they did not fire the poor fella.
Now we ordered stuff, and my dad gave me lecture on how i was stepping into adulthood, how i should stay away from drugs and cigars. How i should limit my self to occasional social drinking and not become a drunkard like how it turns out often, how i shouldnt have sex right now(several people turned their heads, expecting something else). I had heard this before and me and mom had discussed this a long time ago. but still hearing dad talk about it was different, i was like "dad i know know, ya can trust me". he said" i do".
And then came our soups. It looked great, it was like a marsh filled with chicken. As i started to slurp it, something hit my nose. It was this really awful smell, somwhat like horses urine, or like the sea water. damn it was really bad. I told me dad to have a sniff. he didnt notice anything much. I didnt touch my soup for a while. then in a while came my dad's soup, he had ordered the same thing(he ordered it after we all did). after about 10 seconds, he yelled to me, this thing tastes like crap. And we returned the two bowls, and ordered something else, that DIDNT stink, but still i felt like suing the damn place. My mom told me , that true the smell was awful, but thats how it smelled in china and japan. I was like no way. She told me naw, thats how it is, when she had gone to japan, and singapore(i went to singapore as well), the soups had the similar aroma(aroma lol). She said this was sea weed water. eitherways i was disgusted.
Later i got to know that, this place The Waterside, didnt not entertain birthday parties, and social gatherings. why? because the owner wanted only fine dining ova here. Allowing it to the genral public(asit may happen during a party) will destroy this place's image. I found it a bit odd. I mean as long as the money is rlling in, all is good right.
