Working my way out of wrong choices...


"Life is all about the choices you make"

You, your actions and your choices have the power to shape your life and decide its course.
But what will you do when you make a wrong choice? (To err is human, you can't alwayz be right na...)...Honestly...I'm not good in working my way out,when there is the added pressure of 'having done the wrong thing'...seriously i cant take the stress...


Lets say...You made a choice that seemed like just the right path...in fact almost tailor made good for you but as you progressed along, you realize its the wrong way!!!! Forget the right or wrong... it doesn't even lead to a way...it leads to a dead end. No where to go from there. And you have come a long way...too far to turn and change course. Now what - Stop rite there? or continue walking till you reach the end? what will you do??


Honestly..... what i would do when im in such a juncture ,is to play a game....'shift-the-blame-on-someone-else' game...if no one is available to blame...what will i do??? simple....blame God..or destiny...or i just say "there was no better choice..this was it.."(even if there was a better choice..who cares..you are in distress)

Now,You may think of Arun(thats me) as a hypocrite...But Arun isn't like that....He is indeed good....He just wants to shrug off the blame from his shoulders...reduce the pressure....n then he likes to work his way out of the troubles he faces 'cos of the wrong choice...(its fun...referring to myself as a third person...)

Its just that...First Get Rid of The Blame...Feel Less Pressure...n then Tackle Your Probs..

K...enough with the philosophy n questions n bullshit...instead of worrying about facing the consequences of wrong choice...lets just wish we make the right choice....

Me n the Idiot Box (TV)...6 hours..

There was a time when I was glued to the crap box(also known as TV) ...it was during the period between my child hood n 10th standard....I was virtually sitting before it all the time.... Mostly I was amused by cartoons n cricket....

But I lost my touch with idiot box during my 11th n 12th stds....as every conservative family in south India does I was deprived of my TV to focus on my studies ...that I think gave me the much needed break...my addiction to TV was, history...n I got my very own PC when i entered college....(which iam eventually addicted to now)....

One fine day last month when i went to my home town... I decided to see what's in idiot box nowadays ...for 6 hours (had no other option to kill time)...it hasn't changed a bit...instead it has become even more annoying...with a lot of stupid reality shows n hell a lot of stupid serials...n the news channels are crappy too..jus trying to influence the way public think...

But still the sports channels rock...n not much change in channels which show western movies...they mostly show action n comedy flicks...absolutely nothing in drama genre...

So...wat do I think of the stupid programmes in crap box ...?

Serials - why do people still see that piece of crap....most of the time the story is ilogical...with characters which u can never come across in real life...n still the stupid old concept..a girl tryin to bring up her whole family...or daughter in law Vs mother in law...crap....but there were a couple of exceptions in vijay tv...tryin to focus on teen love...but they were so lame for my taste...with characters i cant relate to...n i'm jus 20...jus make believe shows....

Reality shows- these are more annoying n disgusting than serials...they are too hypocritic n highly pretentious...every sane individual can realize that most of the reality shows are 'match fixed' n people are jus acting in it....GOD ....kill them jus kill them....kill those irritating freaks...
name of one of the shows was 'maanada mayilada'.... seriously....**** no to them...

News channels - 40 minutes of hype n stupidity n 20 mins of real news... Its the same with every news channel....they are like channa masala ....where is the awareness guys....?
yes there are a few times when they 'enlighten' people...but not always...still there are many issues in India left unexplored...

Yet there were a few shows which made my idiot box experience better...

Cartoons - they still are awesome...most of the newer cartoons are funny too....n there is a tinge of black comedy n satire too....oooooh....interesting change...

Kalakapovathu yaaru - I enjoyed most part of the show....most... until the judges started to brag about the show...n how it provides huge entertainment for the general public...C'mon man...the show is good...it will sell itself....dont ruin the party...get out..

Cricket - always good...IPL ...good until now...no comments about it...

Documentaries - in nat geo,discovery n travel n living....still intriguing...n fascinating...

FRIENDS - while surfin channels ...suddenly i saw familiar faces..FRIENDS...now syndicated in star world.....great...n back to back episodes too...

Youth diaries - Finally a show which i can relate to as a youngster...about gen x...was good..noted the time..

So...conclusion...Crappy box isn't too crappy...it has something for everyone...although most of the shows which are not meant for me...purely Suck....

My Meaningless Mokkai...a collection..

Mokkai - a dry sarcastic meaningless joke...

Sometimes when i'm in a really good mood...i begin to piss off others(in a non-hurting,but irritating manner) ...i dunno why i do this...but i do know one thing..."i'm really good at doin this"...

i'm in a really good mood now...(yea...i've jus bunked a clinical class n my friends are hardly alive listening to the lecture..)..Perfect occasion...So...Mokkai Time..

Please Waste Some Time...


It's amazing how i break my head to find ways to waste time during the classes throughout the academic year....Yes,its Amazing because i went through that same process twice n i never learned....(its because i passed in both years i suppose..)

Everytime there is a class in noon going on.. i just want the prof to come late to the class , yeah.. 10 minutes would be appropriate and then i want them to leave another 10 minutes early.In between of course a good 5 minutes is wasted surely while taking attendance.So ideally i have to go through 35 minutes of lecture...which rarely is the occasion...cos i hav my cellphone to play with...

n during the morning clinical postings...(God ...they are the classes which i hate the most)...most of the time i stand behind the attending doctor so,he can't question me (u can't see me..) n there is always my gang of goofy friends with whom i spend the time debating about "why should i even attend this boring class ??" (although i don't listen to what they teach..even if it is interesting...i always liked to complain..)

WHY DO I DO THIS ????

i dunno...maybe because i always hav this feeling that whatever i,myself study outta interest in medicine ...stays longer in my mind than listening to the lectures....i know this excuse sounds so lame...but a part of it is true...the other part (where,i study outta interest) never happened ...

so wats the real reason..??
seriously...i don't know...

I'm just lazy thats all....lazy to the core....

Change in my outlook towards life -->coming of age?

There has been a constant change..in the way I look at life n how I want to live it....I think ..the change in outlook doesn't have anything to do with age or experience...rather its based on the amount of exposure you get..its just my thought...could be a foolish thought... But I believe in it...

When I was 10 or 12 years old...I didn't have any outlook towards
life...(I think you look towards life only when you start worrying
about it)

When I was 15 ...I thought life was all about striving hard for success...that's how my parents inspired me to think. Both of them are 'dedicated workers'...
N most of the people around me were the same...I could say that I was 'obedient'..

When I entered college...my outlook took an abrupt change...its not
only about striving hard n succeding..but also about relinquishing the success....its about enjoying the moment n never regretting...n ofcourse facing the consequences of whatever we do...n also its not hard work that pays but smart work....n now i'm a 'spoiled brat'...thats how most of the persons see me now....errr...i think i'm a spoiled brat...but thats how i wanna be...thats who iam..

Being a spoiled brat hasnt changed anything..i'm still good in my studies...but i could be better... n i know that...but who needs better when good is enough..???

I know my outlook may not be good...it may not be complete...but who
gives a shit...I still have many more years to modify it...n I
probably will...

Happy News...yesterday i passed in my 2nd yr univ exams..

yeap....i did...its a medical miracle....

got exactly 50% in two subjects....which i never thought i would...

*n at this 'awe inspiring moment'....i want to be highly thankful to Dr.Kumaraswamy and a prof from skin dept,a prof from ENT dept...whose names i don't know ..for making me succeed...(of course i was one of the numerous students who were helped in the exam hall by them...)*

Is My Life 'Sorted Out' ??


Most of the days I sorta get a feeling that most part of my life is sorted out.

Yeap.. Everything has been figured out, except how to live...
My parents are wealthy...took goooooood care of me...made me study well in school...inspired me to take up medicine in college...they own a prestigious diagnostic facility...which they want me n my sis to take over...so they have pretty much sorted out my life upto my post graduation in Radio-diagnosis ...

But i never did hate my dad or mum for their proposals in my life..(but sometimes I do..especially during eXams and long standing hours in clinics..what the hell..??)....although most of my life's decisions are taken by my folks....i never argued....why am i gonna argue..??It is a perfect life...i've been happy so far....not too many failures...

I've never made my parents regret for their actions in my life...
But..My path in life should definitely have 'MY' touches...so i consider my parents way towards my life as a big party where i'm not intended to be in...you know..like i was crashing the big party...Well, I mean, I eventually kind of took pride in it...

I think life is not meant to be perfect...i was born to mess up things ...n I always mess things up...
n that sometimes pisses off my parents...only sometimes...

n that...'messing up things' is 'MY' touch in My Life.....n I make my own path difficult by the way i mess up things....n end up tryin to correct em...
So who the **** said My life is sorted out...??
the decisions may be made by my parents(n adore em for it)...but processing the decisions n facing the consequence for messing them...n correcting them...that i think is the part of my life i enjoy the most....

Me n My Blog...a starter..

I've just entered my pre-final year medicine....

n there is not much to do nowadays...
i sorta felt that I'm becoming adhered to the words 'routine' , 'usual'...

wakeup at 7,go to clinic postings...stand there for 3 hours straight..lunch...noon classes....see a downloaded movie in d evening .....n select a movie for downloading n schedule it for download...sleep......zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz....

n I'm doing my college in Tirunelveli...My home town....a small town...the place where i also did my schooling...not much to explore n see around it anymore....

life is such a drag...

So...One fine day...i decided to start this blog..."My Dissected Life"...as a diary or journal or somethin like that....i also wanted to share my opinions....I'm not a open person.....i'm reserved ...shy...n only good in puttin mokkai(sarcastic jokes) with my friends....i never share my opinions about my interests with em...cos most of em consider me just as prankster....n yes I'm sorta non-serious most of the times....

But i do have opinions n yes.. most of em are silly ...but are still 'opinions'....I'm gonna blog about my opinions n about anything interesting my life......

So...My blog is on the streets...GET SET N GO....
