Buddies

Had a long chat with Sumit via Yahoo! Messenger. He's in Africa!
Ujwal called. Initially, I mistook him for Santosh; but his ringing laughter was an instant givaway! It was wonderful talking to him after so long a while.
Santosh called. He's at Manilal's. We are supposed to meet at The Forum tomorrow.

What a dull thing your blog is turning out to be. I mean, Deep, look at the quality of your postings. None of them inspire one to continue visiting your blog. It merely appears as log of the inane things happening in your life. All these postings seem to have lugubrious feeling associated with them. They seem to reflect the unfathomable misery that seems to stalk you where ever you go. Man, do you reckon that only you have problems in your life?

You complain about SAP being too tough and boring. Man, the technology I have been put into, besides being boring and tough, is also an obsolete one and greatly hampers my chances of ever being able to leave this company for better avenues elsewhere. Now how does that sound? Feeling better already? I usually reach home at 9:30 in the night, much later than you do, right? Now did that make a good read? I bet it didn't.

When there was no one reading your blog, you did manage to conjure a few epistolary masterpieces. But look, now that you have a sort of a fan following, you seem to be depressing us with some hogwash and that too written as though you were coerced into scribbling them.

I hope my words haven't fallen over deaf ears and that you will make a sincere effort at improving the quality of your postings. As a loyal reader of your blog for a considerable period of time, I demand a better read.

Borrowing these words from one of Anon's comments made on your blog : - Stop throwing these biscuits at us and give us some meat to eat.

You have an escape hatch, MBA! I don't. I'm not complaining but this is a fact. I'm ususlly fervantly predisposed to a lot of things in life. Maybe, I accentuate only the sombre ones.
When it comes to literature, quality is an estranged cousin of quantity.I'm incubating some literature. Gimme some time.

Even Milton would have been reduced to my level of mediocrity had he been saddled with SAP!

The year that was

I'm wearing a rather striking shirt, one that makes me feel like a clown fooling around in a graveyard. Roving eyes latch on to me and make me too conscious of myself. Checkered in red, grey, black and maroon, I've excused myself into donning it and looking silly for two reasons. It's Friday and…more importantly, the last working day of the year. Tailored half-a-year back, I never had the courage to wear it, not until today. It's that time of the year when it's time to reflect on the events that transpired. Last year ended on the worst possible note. Dad had expired and I was numb with shock. The repercussions rippled halfway thought this year. Things were so abysmal initially that I had lost the will to live. Acrid in everything I did, I was immensely angered by time phlegmatically flowing through its cadence. It was as if Dad meant nothing to anybody. What right did people have to live the way they always had when Dad was no more? Why was much of the world still

It's been 10 years...

...since I last heard Willis Conover ! I managed to download a 2-minute live introduction to a jazz band by him today. It was divine hearing him after so many years. Old memories flooded my mind.

Searching for someone

I remember hearing a song by someone in a movie with Charlize Theron and Keanu Reeves as the protagonists. Charlize is a free-spirited girl who is terminally-ill while Keanu is an ambitious lawyer who is captivated by Charlize's ways. The most memorable thing about the movie, though, was the song. I tried to ferret some information about the song yesterday, and its unknown singer. Searched for Charlize Theron via Wikipedia . Browsed through her filmography and zeroed in on Sweet November (2001), which rung a bell. I didn't remember the name of the movie and hoped this was the one. Clicked on Sweet November . The plot confirmed my doubt! This was indeed the movie I was looking for. Searched for Sweet November via Yahoo! Music. Managed to find the original motion picture soundtrack. Clicked on the link . Found the list of tracks. There were 13. Now which one was I looking for? Visited Amazon and searched for Sweet November . Gotcha! The list of tracks, however, gave no in
