Its sad and i don't understand why, but most of you hate me. Because from the way i see it, I should be the one hating you! You say i disturb you(well frankly you 'set me up'), but its actually the other way round. Once, at least once every day you have to trouble me. Whats the worst part, you deliberately do it at odd hours(once somebody bugged me at 4:30 in the morning!! :O i mean, get a life!) And thats not it, you also have this particular habit of pestering me for just a few moments. And some of you, those who are friends with Mr Snoo Ze, persist till either one of us gives up.
I mean why?? Why me. What happened to the cock? Doesn't he 'cock a doodle doo' anymore? It is all of this that actually makes me make you miss your trains and flights and important meetings time and again. Understand one thing very clearly, i love my peace,(sleep) and sanctity just as much as you, and you have no right disturbing me.
For the first and last 'time', i warn you, i warn you to get your act right soon. Otherwise..otherwise..i'll see to it that you don't wake up tomorrow morning..on time.

With summers around, we all resort to cool ways to keep ourselves fresh. One such refreshing way is to eat fruits. Cherries and mangoes and melons and litchis, fruits just 'fruiten' up your day.
But did you know this fact about Litchis? Litchis were first discovered/grown in the east. It was found in the highlands of the eastern province of Beijing in the year 1887. The fruit was discovered by two brothers who were testing various combinations of fruit seeds in their family farm, and discovered one day this brand new plantation. The fruit was then named after the two brothers who first grew it - Lee and Chi..
Now aint that some Litchi for thought?

Life presents us all with a lot of questions. Some are answerable, others not. Some are easy, others tough. Some are soft, others harsh. Some are tricky, others obvious.
It is this set that takes you by surprise(read shock, horror and dismay) because of its simplicity. These are the ones which are obviously obvious in nature.
For instance, you reach home early from a place that you generally would have come late from, and as you enter, you are confronted with the question - "You are home?!" And what should your reply be, "No, this is my ghost standing in front of you"/"No, i am my lookalike"/"No, you are hallucinating"? No, we all obviously say yes. So the thing is, that why do we all end up asking these obvious questions time and again? When we very well know their answer. By the way , what are you upto right now? Reading this blog, eh?

Humans are interesting beings. They love things to work their way. They try and alter every possible thing/ phenomenon/ rule as per their own will. The fixation with changing things runs so high, that people even try and make time run by their own set standards.
Lets say the time right now is 1800 hrs(6 pm). While your neighbour might have his watch set to the right time(6 pm), your close friend's watch from school/college/work might show the time to be 6:10 pm. On questioning your friend's decision of fiddling with nature's creation, he will simply say that changing time helps him stay punctual. The argument here is, that the individual who has reset his/her watch constantly knows through the day that time by their watch is a few minutes 'ahead' of actual time, so how does it really help the person be any quicker in life?

You have to meet your friend at 11:00 am at the city's centrally located hangout joint. It usually takes around 45 minutes to get there, keeping the traffic in mind.
You get up at 9:00 am. You laze around. You then get on with the daily chores. You are ready by only around 10:30. Few minutes here and there, you leave at around 10:40, only 20 minutes away from 11.
You make a dash, in a futile yet desperate attempt to make it in time. Just a red light or two, there is mild traffic on that day and a smooth road otherwise.
Despite the hurriedness, you reach your destination late, having made your friend wait for around 20 minutes. Friend's angry, loathes at you, calls you names, tells you how you don't give a damn about other people's time, what he/she's had to do in the past 20 minutes, that too all alone! You feel bad, think of a good excuse to make up for the delay, one that would take the blame away from your innocent self.. Hmmm, oh yes thats easy.. One sentence and its all settled..
"There was a huge traffic jam on my way to this place, i would have otherwise reached well within time.."
Do you also play the Blame 'Jam'e ?

Day in and Day out as people talk, on the phone, chat, scrap, post or any of the many means made available to mankind, they think. They think about a lot of stuff, stuff that includes work, office, friends, party, hanging out, sports, deadlines,food, money, MBA and so on... There's so much that goes on in their head, that even a mind reader couldnt clearly decipher what they are pondering over.

Shakespeare once said - To be or not to be, that is the question.. When you read between the lines u realise he was talking about bathing.
Each day as we wake up, we are already somewhat late. Once late, why should one spend unnecessary time on things not that necessary. There is an office to go to/a lecture to attend/a school bus to catch. With so many important things at hand, it is but a wise decision to skip the unwanted. Now why do people make such a hue and cry for a matter as nonsensical as bathing. Isnt there other important stuff to do.
And if your argument is that "Eeww thats grose, how can one not take a bath everyday!", then while it is acceptable for Summers, why spoil one's winters! I mean without the heat and dust, doesnt one generally stay clean that time of the year??
