Most of us who are inclined towards rock, are familiar with Nirvana. And once you know Nirvana, it goes without saying that you know "Smells like teen spirit", their most famous song till date.
I had never seen the video, but when I saw it, it was completely different from what I expected. And I have no words to describe it. Please note that thisnt an expression of disgust nor appreciation, just amazement.
Check it out and see for yourself.

So my exams have ended. And I'm a free bird at last and have been bragging about that to one and all. Now I want to do everything I missed out in the past two years. So yesterday I had gone Karting, today morning I joined driving classes, and a gym. I plan to read Fountainhead soon.
Varun, a close pal of mine from school called me up today and we made a plan to hangout. We didnt know what to do. I didnt want to end up in a restaurant eating all the time, I didnt want to go karting again since I had been there yesterday, and plan to go there soon again. We decided to watch a movie. We were discussing which movie to watch, on the phone. He got the newspaper and started reading out what was playing where. It was incredible. The summer is a time when everyone's free, co-incidentally, almost magically, its also the time for the most crappiest movies to be released. We didnt have much of a choice. We decided to go to this movie called "Tom , Dick and Harry".
Everyone please go and watch the movie. Its amazing. Simply mindblowing. Its really amazing at telling us what crap our bollywood industry makes, now i hear many say what about the good ones. Dude, for every lagaan, you have a gazillion "hawas ke pujaari".
The movie has no goddamn story. oK. Its like this, there are these 2 dudes, Tom and Harry, one is deaf and other is blind, and well they are poor, and have a condom agency, and instead of paying their monthly rental of 3K, they pay half of that and few boxes of rubber to their landlord(who is this punjabi horny bear), who hates them. Within a few minutes Deepak AKA Dick joins them and they bond instantly. The happy go lucky threesome get into enormous trouble. The movie is filled with PJ's, Oh and Dick is blind. Now their life would've been cool, but no wait! There is a glitch. You have Gulshan Grover, as some weird gay ass villian named some crap I dont really remember. He claims to be the most deadly villian in the world, and you have Shakaal, Gabbar singh and Mugambo sitting in his court as his bitches. Now apparently the international MAFIA contacts him and confesses they have a fetish for indian women and demand 50 indian women. So then this is the messed up part, this grover guy's goons roam the street and push over dudes from their bikes and steal their girls and lock them up in some sort of a anti-girl escape chamber. And these are like the most expressionless girls I've ever seen, its like they've all been drugged or something.
Ok, coming to T D and H, they are mesmerised by their new neighbour( celina jaitley). At this juncture it'd be interesting to point out that actresses(contemporary) are supposed to turn the public on, and I dont see how thats going to happen when the lead actress has zits all over her nose and cheeks and every other inch. So thats not cool. So anyways the movie is filled with 1001 PJ's and they really are PJ's. And well, Indian public is sorta dumb, they find it funny. I'm pretty sure, seeing a guy fall while stepping on a banana peel makes us laugh as though its the funniest thing in the world. Anyways, I was surprised to see so many people laughing at those 3rd grade jokes, which dont make any sense at all. But watching them laugh for every little thing made us laugh.
Kim sharma was in the movie too. She was bent up on exposing her bust, which kept on jiggling like jelly every second, coz she kept on tightening her blouse(shez supposed to be a fish curry seller), and made me think...did she have breast implants? Oh shucks, who cares.
And in the mean time, expressionless druggie girls kept vanishing from the streets.
And well then I fell asleep, and I woke up after like half n hour and I saw that they were still yapping about something that I didnt understand. And then out of a sudden, there was mangal pandey, salman khan lookalike from Tere Naam, Anthony from the Amitabh block buster and some other rubbish. That was supposed to be some sort of ruralsexual item number.
And well, suddenly police enters and everyone dances and kicks ass at the same time. Acting was pathetic by one and all. Its amazing how someone as hot as Kim Sharma was made to look so repulsive, celina jaitley, well I think she should be hung.
And the movie has to be THE worst movie ever made, THE worst, one one of the worst, THE VERY worst. No coordination between the actors, everyone with weird gay ass expressions, and too many condoms here and there. Well something went wrong somewhere.

The trip to Vellore-PART I

Sunday, May 21, 2006 4
Vellore in the past was known in the educational domain solely because of its Medical College, CMC(Christian Medical College). However, the past few years another institute has been coming up, or so the media claims, this one is in the engineering stream. I'm talking about Vellore institute of Technology
An interesting fact to note is that the isntitute received 7000 applications in 2004, 45000 in 2005 and 89000 in 2006. Quite a progress dont you think? Well most of it has to be because of their huge budget of advertising. I remember during the days I was preparing for my JEE, I'd see VIT's sprawling campus on the last page of every major daily every alternate day. Huge, Lit up, Bright!
I too was mesmerised by those huge pics of the campus. I gave their exam. And it has the weirdest syllabus of all the exams, those who gave it this year know what I am talking about.
Anyways, I gave their exam, and cleared it with a very good rank(according to my peers). Their counselling was in a month. Another interesting point about Vellore Insti's counselling is that, its a month before any of the other counsellings, and so is their fee due date. I guess that says it all.
On 16th of this month, I left for Chennai, with my dad, from where we'd catch a cab to vellore.
Chennai to Vellore in an AC cab cost about 2500 Rs. It was later that we realised that the AC cab wasnt very meaningfull, since the temperature suddenly fell down drastically once the late hours of the night started to pass.
I was listening to some Nirvana on my dad's lappie, and the our Cab broke down. In the middle of nowhere.On the highway, which had no divider, no lights, nothing. And we were in Tamil Nadu, we couldnt understand what the cabbie was saying, and the feeling was mutual.
He had spares thankfully,and after 30-40 mins, we were back on track.
We had a room reserved in a hotel, which was 7-8 kms from VIT.
Next morning, we took an auto to the institute, my dad communicated with the guy in telugu. I told my dad, "Hey, he's tamil, he doesnt understand you"
"Arrey you dont know, its all the same"
"No its not dad"
Apparently it was.
We reached safely, and he didnt loot us too.

There were huge posters with VITEEE counselling
"WELCOME STUDENTS AND PARENTS" written . Deep blue they all were.
The institute was pretty green and clean. It was really quiet, probably because only the 4th year students were on campus( that too only a handful){ got to know this later}
They explained to us all the formalities for the day, we sat in the auditorium, where some old dude was going on and on about the college, I heard phrases such as "You're ward is in the safe hands of our esteemed faculty...", "...we teach basic SW skills to each and everyone...", "....having a tie-up with *some german* university, and have introduced *some degree related to energy*", "...the insti is great in harnessing...", "...saale jaldi join kar na bhe...", ok maybe not the last one.
The days ranks were from 750-1500. I had got a 1400 something rank, which basically meant that I had come really early, and my turn would come towards the end of the day only.
The wait wasnt too bad, as I found a pal of mine from college. We talked about the college, saw its library, which was infact the most impressive of the buildings in the campus. It was totally air conditioned, and had a huge multimedia room, with LCD monitors, and a huge database of cd's etc.. I saw some seniors there, and we started talking to them about the placement, and ambience, and student-teacher realtionship, and branch preference etc.
They gave us some official and some *ahem* non official info.
Anyways, we returned to the counselling hall. The counselling was simple. we were in an auditorium, where the number of seats admitted and remaining in each course flashed. They'd yell out the rank and name, and we'd have to give the xerox documents and select our branch. But something was happening. All everyone were taking were Computer Science(CSE), and Electronic and Communication(ECE)
No one was taking anything else. It was shocking( well not really). And then it happened, CSE and ECE seats got over. Now came the funny part. No one wanted anything else. It was as though the other brances were for people of smaller dreams and ambitions, and they were'nt worthy of taking. This included Electrical, Electrical(Instrumentation), Mechanical, IT, Bio, Civil, Chemical, basically everything else. It was funny, that for the next half an hour the counselling progressed very very slowly, and we'd see that only after a long period of time would someone select a branch.

So I just got BiT Torrent. And there's one word that comes to my mind. As Will Smith would've put it "Damn"!.
Its fast as hell.
I am not THAT net savvy. So the most I would download from the net would be some pdf files, or some other document files, or some pictures, or at the most a song from a site.
Then after a while I downloaded Kazaa, a peer-2-peer software (P2P). Its a sort of a platform, where people come and crap, and others interested in the crap, come and wipe it from there and take it home. No middle men, no banners. I downloaded 3 songs I liked. Then shut down my computer. For a month my computer wouldnt work. It was as though it had got AIDS, or syphillis. It just would'nt start. It had been infected.
I hated Kazaa since then. But maybe it wasnt Kazaa's fault. Maybe it was just some dickhead from a thirdworld nation trying to spam the world. But when you get out in cricket, you dont blame you're self do you( most of the times anyways), you blame the bowler, or the umpire. So that was my brief association with Kazaa.
Recently I was told there's another P2P software called Limewire. After hesitating I downloaded it. And whoa. It opened new doors that I never knew existed before. It was much faster than a website, and had EVERY SONG i could imagine. It was unbelievable. I was overwhelmed. It was like god telling me "Hey asshole, go download." So who wants to say no to god right? (Even if there isnt one)
BSNL(The internet connection I have), has unlimited download from 2-8 AM. So now you all know I am awake in the night.
I thought this was the best thing. But there was the next best thing. LIMEWIRE PRO. Now this thing costs like 10-15$. But I got it from my pal(stihor, you know who you are) for free. So now I log on. And I agree this is the BEST thing. Its so fast! Its like really fast. A 4 MB song in little over a minute. And I am like WOW. So I started downloading videos, you know like concert videos and episodes of SOUTHPARK. I'll talk about this addiction later, but right now I am talking about Limewre PRo. It was amazing. And I thought, naw man this is the best thing EVER. These things are cosmic(shruti are you listening) I think. Coz NOW I GOT BITTORRENT. And let me tell you this, I've not seen anything faster than this, maybe there is , and I'm sure of it. But I have not seen it yet. 32 MB file in less than 5 mins. And I go like WTF man this is INSANE!. But its true. So i'm on a rampage, downloading all the southpark episodes. The total has already crossed 1GB. Its amazing. I love technology. Let me know if something's faster than BIT tORRENT. Posted by Picasa

Shane Warne
Many rate him as the best spinner of the cricket ball. Since the time he bowled that ball that spun ninety degrees and bowled the maestro Englishman, Mike Gatting-He has been a star. The thing about most stars is this-They get into huge controversies, that increases the number of hits their names give when you punch it out on google dot com. Shane Warne has had his share of controversies. Be it the match fixing scandal after the 1996 world cup along with Mark Waugh, or the 1998 controversy where he admitted having provided info about the pitch to bookies. And then the dude was drugged by his mom(ofcourse unintentionally), or so he claims and that made news too. Then there was his publicised divorce. But there's now another one to add to that list. And this one is hot news guys.
A british tabloid published pics of shane standing in his undies while a blond and brunette both topless fooled around with dildo
The dude was having a THREESOME. Man have you ever heard of a cricketer doing that? I know its no big deal nowadays, but it its the first time something like this has come to the surface, especially concerning a cricketer.
Apparently the two found Shane Warne extremely "Fit" and "thanked" him for satisfying them and "trying" new things. So I guess the pitch isnt the only place where Warne experiments. And if one would think this would tire him for his match the following morning, the guy took 7/99 against a county side.
His wife is apparently is happier after the divorce.
Now is cricket turning into rock and roll? We already have drugs (many players have been caught doping) and now the bizarre sex. Posted by Picasa

I was going through some of the past questions of the state CET of Andhra Pradesh, more commonly known as EAMCET. One mathematics question caught my eye. Not because of the math associated with it. The question as such was a rather simple one, which any mathematics student who is familiar with basic probability could answer.
The question:
From each of the three married couples, one partner is selected at random. The probability that all the three belong to the same sex is
a) .25 b).5 c).125 d).375
Now most of you would give the answer (a), and you'd prolly get full marks. Yet could the same answer be given after say, 10-15 years. I'm pretty sure, after 15 years, another option e) would be included in this question, which would say INSUFFICIENT INFORMATION, since it is not mentioned in the question, how many of the marriages are between those of "same sex" or "different sex". The world is mixing. People from tokyo are marrying people from siberia, guys are marrying guys, women marrying women, hell I've heard reports of people marrying their pets because they feel connected to them at a certain level. I am a very tolerant person and believe in "whatever makes you happy", but how do the others in our society take it? Especially in India, where half the population is married through arranged marriage , how can such a nation tolerate same sex marriage? Me being a kashmiri, has yet to hear of a kashmiri pandit, who is gay or lesbian, how would such a person be looked in the eyes of the society, his/her own community? Will they be accepted? We all talk about us being OKAY with people being gay, but what if someone close to us was one, or in course of time became one? Would we embrace them? Thats the question you ask yourself.
