I was just thinking... waitamin, that's too abrupt. But since I take too much time to come to the point anyway, I guess it's ok. Hey - it's not abrupt already! :) Cool.

Thing is, I was thinking about welationships. Ok, yeah BORING (really?), done to death topic, whatever. But no, maybe this is a new twist to an old tale.

I was thinking, how it is that the people who we are the closest to, in all senses of the word, are also potentially the same people who are bound to us by the most tenuous links... A boy/girlfriend, lover, husband/wife... if things go wrong, this is the person you are going to give up, forever (or vice versa), along with all the other saaman, or stuff, both tangible and otherwise. This is the person who will not figure in your life anymore at all (unless, God forbid, you have kids together).

And the irony is that the less significant people in your life - distant friends, acquaintances and such like - remain in their designated positions, while other, MUCH more significant people just up and fade away...

Isn't it ironic, don't you think?

U2 F***ing Forever!

Yeah people, the verdict is in. Kanye West can bitch and moan, but U2 it is.

Winning in all categories it was nominated for, U2 SWEPT the Grammys, as our beloved Reuters and BBC will vouch.

I know a detailed post wants, but will have to wait, pals. For now, I just could not resist this mini-pilgrimage!

So I'll depart in the words of U2, who else, and bid you a Beautiful Day, cos you are the Ones who make my blog Even Better Than The Real Thing.

;) Rock on! U2 Fo-eva!

Went to this interesting website s! referred us novice bloggers to... To figure out the real "meaning" of a website/blog (methinks any length of text). These were the results for my blog:

Pretty neat, huh?

Patriotic, Principled? Puh-leez! Purr-haps.

So yeah, I refused a CHOCOLATE, wonder of wonders, from AK, who, for reasons best known to himself, was distributing the treat when India lost to Pakistan today after posting a "whopping", as they call it, total of 328 on the board. My beloved Tendya even scored a perfect ton, and we still lost. Boo hoo.

Couple that with the fact that I am Kashmiri - how could I eat the celebration of defeat, even if it IS my most preferred food?

People tried to justify it in myriad ways: "Who cares, as long as I get chocolate"... "It's not really a celebration of Pak's victory, its just a treat"... Well, whatever. I just cannot sully my conscience with tainted chocolate.
