Battiyan bujhane se bhi neend nahi aayegi....

Anyways enough of singing.. Tomorrow is Earth Hour. I have heard that people are switching off their lights in hundreds of countries for one hour tomorrow.March 28th 8.30PM to 9.30 PM IST. Here is the link

So what can you do in that one hour of no light but only moon light time?

  • Candle light dinner on the terrace of your gf, without even her parents guessing! And if someone comes, shout "KAALA BANDAR" .. monkey man!!
  • Vexed by a neighbor? Right time to take the revenge, go and pee on his main gate, so that when he opens the gate next morning... 
  • Gather some friends and have lots of beer! Hic!
Any more ideas?

Lijjat Turns 50!

I read this article somewhere and realized this deserves a special mention. Those seven housewives had guts to start their own company in 1959! (March 15, 1959 to be precise). Another astonishing fact was the presence of a social entrepreneur who gave those ladies 80Rs to start their business!

This article rekindled my old dream of setting up a social lending company in India. So many people have excess money and so many others never think of following their dreams because of the need of just a few thousand rupees! 

Anyways will do that once "jab main apne pairo pe acchi tarah khada ho jaunga" .. not to earn money but just as a part of PSR. (When companies can have Corporate Social Responsibility, why cant people have Personal Social Responsibility?)

Thats all for now. I am deeply immersed in work as of now. Will be back on weekend!

Fordsburg - Johannesburg

Finally the the little banarsi part in me kicked and i went again to Fordsburg. My only purchase of the day was a pack having 5 meetha banarsi paans!! Oh yea i ate them all in one day! Its nt a big quantity as compared to my proffs in BHU, who had one big pack containing 2 kgs of paan for the day and in other hand had some photocopies of the notes which they wrote in 1980s. Sooner or later the BHU administration also realized this and painted all the walls of BHU in red which otherwise had millions of patches of red. Phew! Remember the sound when any paan eating fellow spits the paan .. Pichaaaak!! 

I saw another aweful movie today. No prizes for guessing, DEV D. It is devdas remade with a bit of maa behan ka emotional atyachar. Few sluts coupled with drugs, alcohol, MMS case, BMW case and a few more sluts! No story, no theme, just ek naye zamane ka devdas having drugs as compared to bewda purana devdas. And chunni babu replaced by a pimp chunni! Thats all. If i would have to rate this movie, i would give it a lesser number than my college grades! (Thats a really pathetic rating for any movie i must say)

By the way i visited Beer Museum. Yeah you read it right, ye wahi daru wali beer ka museum hai. It is a stone throw distance from Fordsburg. But you cant throw a stone back from the museum to fordsburg specially after the free (read complimentary beers) which they give. It was a nice museum telling all about how the beer was created in Egypt n blah blah. The only interesting part of the tour was the 3 big glasses of beer which they gave free in the tour! Hic! Hic! It is a nice marketing strategy. They showed how beer is created using Maize, fruits leaves etc. And they used word alcohol only once in the one hour tour as far as i remember. All they said was beer is good for health, spirit and soul! And then they give u loads of free beer and chips to replenish your spirit! Hic! Peene walo ko peene ka bahana chahiye! I have a sudden interest in museums now. Do they have whiskey, rum, vodka, tequila museums? Hic!

Waise news of the day, finally after a lot of pestering i have created an account on facebook. It is damn confusing! sab kuch upar neeche hota rehta hai usme! And for illeterate people like me, orkut is much easier to understand! And ajkal ke naujawano ke sath kadam milane ke liye i am on twitter too! (han han ab aap log soch rahe ho ki kya vella aadmi hai aaltu faaltu jagah account banata rehta hai but FYI jab free mein account mil raha hai to bana ke rakh lete hain .. 35-40 saal baad jab retire hounga to shahar se kahi door ek chote se ghar ki chat pe baith ke chai aur pakode khate hue apni buddhi biwi se bolunga .. aaji sunti ho yaad hai wo humne ek twitter pe account khola tha .. chalo aj use update karte hain ! :D

This post is centered about cribbing, so if you dont want to read just close the window and get lost. 

i have written about marriages before  click here,  and here, and here

So last week, one of my close friend got married. It was the first marriage in my friends gang which we used to call Mech Bonds. And next week another of my closest friend is getting married. And i am loosing my head sitting far here in johannesburg. I cant attend that marriage either. I am loosing a great chance to meet many of my friends again. Our big group gathering has only happened 2 times in past 2 years. So this was a great chance to improve the averages. 

I was just evaluating my decision to come here far away from my place. I cant just take a night flight to go to marriage and get back to work next day. I cant have those frequent daru parties with my friends in noida. Almost everyone going home pays a visit to our noida hangout to have a small get together. What the fcuk am i doing sitting here? Damn i can not even go back before the contract ends. I am feeling totally screwed up!!!

Fcuk Fcuk Fcuk!!!!!!
