(...Nope! There was a problem with the Sulekha web servers!)

Deepanjan said…
Did I blow my trumpet too loud?
Sorry!

Hey, repeat that 'sorry' a million times and yet you will fall a billion short before we forgive you for blowing your trumpet.

Or is it the effect of my earlier comment listing the seven sins you must refrain from commiting, to avoid being stung by a bee?

So Robert & Sameer have struck an alliance to pull my legs.
Vivek said…
Have not! But great minds think alike.

Deepanjan said…
WOW Rakesh!
I thought u were a lost entity in geekdom. Welcome to my blog!
As u can c, my pages are more interesting than bitmca02, thanks to amoebas like Sittu, Rob & Sameera.
Your joining the club (of course, in a higher avatar than an amoeba)would be a nice thing.

so, kaabil, u r still alive. welcome onboard.
And Deepu , Is "HazelEyes" ur pseudonym???
Deepanjan said…
Sittu, I don't have a split personality. If I had, each of my posts would get a thousand comments from my alter ego!
Anonymous said…
Hey this comment is quite true...your blog is very interesting. Even my mom reads it (hi mom!). The other day she said to me, "This Deepanjan seems very intelligent."
Anonymous said…
u want us to believe that all those comments in the name of sameer and sebastian are actually posted by them???
Deepanjan said…
Zoya, your comment almost made me jump over the moon! If only G (Gravitational Constant) could loosen me a bit!
Deepanjan said…
Sittu, I would die a thousand deaths before I assumed Sameera's minuscule persona.
No comments about Sabu!

Hiyo, Zoya!! I had started wondering where our leading lady was while there is so much action going on over here.

D..Did you say your mom reads this blog??? I hope she is as sprightly as you are cause I am still a bit flustered about a particular comment I made a few days back.

Hey, I just visited this idiot, ignoramus little lamebrain, this….this imbecile jackass Deepanjan's site for the first time in my life today and I find that for past 1.5 years, somebody else has been posting comments in my name (Sittu).

I am sure it is Deepanjan himself who has been posting these comments to show off his fan following.

Shame on you Deep, you @#$%&!!!

Important: - Please do not believe Deep (pretending to be me) if he tries to convince you that he has not posted this comment. In the meantime, I am trying to find a knife to slit his throat.
Deepanjan said…
So one of my fans has a split personality!
What a high-profile fan following!
Sebastian said…
His way of blowing his own trumpet was so Deepangan-esque
Anonymous said…
A trumpet is meant to be blown out loud..u deserve it Deep!!

I forgive u for misspelling my name :)
saurabh said…
hey I never knew my vocab is so good....
Vivek said…
Rakesh, its good to have you back.

And Deep what the hell do you mean when you call me an 'amoeba' of all things. Getting too big for your boots, are you? Maybe it's time for another Christ-College-style attack. What say?

It's one thing having loyal readers like me & another to treat them like dirt. I didn't particularly relish that comment of yours.

As I garner more and more support in my day to day battles with Deep and as he invariably ends up on the losing side, he seems to be on a recruitment drive to muster his forces by inducting both foreign and Indian mercenaries.

What do you say comrades? I feel this war is going to be a long and a bloody one.
saurabh said…
Vivek, u r right. okay in case of another christ-college, i call for his nokia 6681.

Way to go Vivek!! Tell me if you need any help in squishing this cockroach.

You guys have any idea which burrow that filthy rat could be hiding after receiving so many life threats?
Vivek said…
In the arms of some female whose asses he's so keen to kiss.

Hey Viv, I completely support you and understand the reason for your anger but let us not resort to sleazy words and cheap talk.

And please don't get cross at me for saying this.
Vivek said…
Chalo at least you got to fathom my anger from the comment before Deep deletes it. Yeah, I agree .... sleazy words & cheap talk aren't required where a good bashing should suffice.
Deepanjan said…
OK, I take my word back. I upgrade Rob, Sameera & Sittu to Homo Sapiens.
The afterglow of my original post has been an embarrassment to me.
Vivek said…
Sooooooooo, now you've taken to playing God. Incorrigible, aren't you?
Deepanjan said…
Playing God? Not me!
I offered the upgradation on humanitarian grounds.

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.

Post Christmas

The workday didn't have the sweetest of starts. After being made to wait for almost half-an-hour for breakfast in the cafeteria, I was told only when I enquired that there could be no omelette since the heater wasn't working properly. I lost my temper and aired my annoyance not because the heater was out-of-order but because I was needlessly made to wait for something that was just not about to happen. The onus was on them to intimate me and they failed to own up to their responsibility. I find this attitude very irksome. Anyway, the rest of the day was smooth sailing except for a minor glitch that had to be rectified just when I was about to head for lunch. The bay was mostly deserted since most of my colleagues had volunteered for a training. I'm self-taught...thus my being an exception to the mass exodus! Nilotpal is on a fortnight-long leave and I missed him dearly today.
