Why i hate chat

I would like to meet her in real life and spent some time with her but….

This is a serious story about one of my friend and myself. This friend of mine has not met me in person. But we have seen each other, talked to each other, sang some duets and even fought. But never met in person. I dont know if that was because we never had time or she felt that i am not worth the time.

Those who are confused or gawking than here is full story. The story starts when i was student of school of science and a fan of the term called internet and its intricacy. The research of same led me to a new dimesion called yahoo and introduced me a long forgotten term called Y! Chat.

After a few days of jumping at yahoo rooms i came across a room where people were actually using the chat features to full use. These guys were playing Antrakshri using yahoo voice chat. Voila i was hooked. This was much better than adult 20+ room. People from diffrent part of the world singing out of tune. It was fun. Though no1 knew who is who. If the other person is sitting in india or US of A. We knew them by their chat id than their name. Names were rarely exchenged and and phone numbers were even rare.

But i was a fool who made friend there too and met some of them in person. It was a co-incidence that one fo them was from the same city and we met over. I have always thought of that person as an old person by the way he talked. but was shocked to find a smart young guy of 20 something standing there. For those who are thinking that what a fool i am, than guys mind you, Friends are rare and make sure that you make some whenever you can.

BTW we are deviating from the main point of our story. The story is about the person whom i have called Dream (I am yet to know who she really was what was her real name). We met on the same place called yahoo chat. we used to talk more than a regualr chatter should do. we became something more than a friend and she started to trust me more than i could have handled. May this was the trust that had kept us together for so long. And one fine day i told her its all over and she was gone. PUFF!!! lost for ever. gone!!

I would like to meet her in real life and spent some time with her but….

Infidelity

This is topic i was thinking to write for some time. but as the things were i wasnt able to do so. My first question was what is infidelity? as per the http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/infidelity

Noun

infidelity (plural infidelities)

  1. unfaithfulness in marriage or other moral obligation
  2. lack of religious belief
but what i believe is that its the unfaithfulness in any obligation. It may be the a employee leaving the employer, or a lover dumping (cheating included) his/her partner. Some times its that the people recognize that they have been cheated and sometimes they remain in the delusion of that they have done some mistake and are still reaping the fruits of the same. Where as the infidel is gone!!! and guys its not you or the gals its not you its the same in both the case. the only thing that remains is little pain and loads of memories.
Why i am talking infidelity so much? Its for the simple reason that i have seen one movie and read one novel full of same. (Though there are more profound things behind this blog)
First the Movie. A movie which was on friendship, music, love and the diffrences. A diffrent yet common story. A story about four friends, thier ex-girlfriends, present wife, jobs, making ends meet and MUSIC. I am talkign about rock-on. A movie from the maker of Dil Chahta hai and a story which reminds you of the movie. Four charcter living life diffently fight over and reunite to show the world they are the best. But i wish to know why did they fight at the first place? Wasnt the root cause of the fight Infidelity. what ever that may be but if you start scrutinise a movie you will find more flaws than good. I liked the movie though it was a bit slow at some point. but over alla watchable movie.
The second is a book from one of the indian authors. It seems that indian authors are trying really hard to make a mark on the international arena and failing in doing so. Thoug some of the authors actually done it but there are very few who are able to cross that line. This author i am talking about is Advaitha Kala and her first book “Almost Single.” The book it self is filled with infidelity in true sense. Huband betraying wifes. lovers betraying each other. Its a novel writen with first person perspective and the speaker tell how the life is bitch and they are still single. over all a good read no life changing fundas, simple story and sometimes funny.

I am sorry

This is post for all those ladies whom i have done anything wrong. Either intetionally, unintensionally, in love, in friendship, as a foe, mentally, emotionally or anything in between.

For those who are thinking why such an apologetic post? than it the aftermath of Ranbir Kapoor starrer “Bachna aie Haseeno.”  Working for Game Development Division of Microsoft and takes off on a lonnnnnnnnnnnggggg leave of 6 month, just out of guilt feeling of all his mistakes in his life. the hearts he broke and to ask for forgiveness from the gals. Man! this guy has got guts!! Nah not because he is out there and playing i am best but 6 months of leave without telling any one. If microsoft is allowing long weekend of that sort than please refer me there. I have worked on all the OS and once upon a time worked on a Game Porting. 😛 (Yeah i am bragging).

The weekend that went by had loads of fun and we were out to watch the movie Bachna aie Haseeno. No comment on the story, Movie, direction, actors. Just a quick review. (My First)

Bachna Aie haseeno start out with the son dancing to the tunes of his father. Its in literal terms the title song is filmed on father Rishi Kapoor in the movie “Hum Kisi Se Kam Nahin.” Than start a line of comedy and fun filled part of the life ranbir kapoor (Raj). He meets 3 gals @ various stages of his life. Just to meet them again. Watch the movie to know what the above line means. The movie full of comedy and boring scenes. some places you feel oh yeah that was the way i used to think at that phase of my life.

My advice Go with an open mind without any pre thoughts about the movie and you will surely love it. All in all its and out and out Raj Shree Production “Romantic Comedy.”

Post with a pre

Hmmmm. SO what is this post all about. Preparing for a post? Or posting something that was already there? or post about something which has already happend to me. Non of the above its about the war between post and pre. Something like “To Bill or not To bill, is the question?” still confused??? this is all about the so called the mobile usage system. Either of the prepaid or postpaid. After a stint of 2 years with post paid i am shifting back to pre paid. And the reason is not the ever mounting bills or low credit limit (I have a credit limit of 12,400). The reason is very simple. There is no use in taking a post paid conenction when the prepaid offers are much better and cheaper. The guys at Airtel were asking 99 bucks for all india STD @ Rs1 for my post paid and same is given for prepaid guys @ Rs 31.

The reason of my previous transfer to Post paid was that the charges was less and the offer that they gave simply great. but after the price war started by airtel by reduing the call charges to Rs 1.50 its not much of zing left in the post paid offers.

Either the telecos have to wake up and update their post paid plans or there people will start moving towards the pre paid plans.

There is still a good idea for those who can spend some money. Goto any service provider and ask them that you wish to have a post paid connection and get a really cool number. and than go ahead and switch to the prepaid. Great na?

BTW please let me know if you are prepaid or post paid user and do you really wish to switch to the other side of the payment mode?

Bearing with auto and telco’s

This post is another crib series which i felt is long due.. its about the two things which i hate the most. one of them is Autos of bangalore. The most irritating and frustrating guys we have to meet each day. They have the meters tempered, ask more extra fare and crib when we reach our destination. Just thing the autos opt to run empty but they will take you as a fare only if you will cough up the extortion money they ask. 

For e.g. the general auto fare to my office comes to 29rs from the point i generally board them. One i was running late so had to agree to paying “10 Rupees extra sir” and upon reaching office the meter was reading 45rs. and i had to pau 10 bucks extra. WTF. asking for extra money on tempred meter. 

The other who can make you feel the same way and don’t even come to face to face with you. They are the credit card to the medical insurance seller. Most of the time i come up with a new excuse. some of them are

  1. Just now i have filled the form
  2. I have applied yesterday
  3. I have your card
  4. I am HIV+ (To medical insurance)
  5. This is police he has committed suicide yesterday.
  6. I am in a meeting call me later
  7. Simply disconnect.
  8. I am jobless or student

There are few more i will add later
