9:20 PM ,Saturday November 29th...

God...I'm becoming hyper-lazy nowadays....i've been meaning to write a blog entry for almost a week now...not that i was busy or anything like that...i had all the time in the world....i was infront of my mac for atleast 5 hours a day....but...jus lazy...HMMM...

a LOT of things happened in the past two weeks......

Mumbai on WAR:

Mumbai was under a terrorist attack...nearly 150 died....saw News n read about in Google...was like a hollywood movie...with commandos rescuing hostages inside taj hotel....I truly feel sorry for all the victims....I think its the fault of the self-centered Politicians...doin nothing but simply doin politics..playing the blame game on one another n invoking the people's sentiments...I hate em...Its time they did something constructive for India...thay owe that to the nation after all they stole form it...

I always wondered why our nation has yet to recognize a personal ID for every citizen like the Social security numbers in US....
I feel that security rules must be tight
ened even if it meant harassing a few rights of citizens....
India is so vulnerable to these terror things nowadays...Jaipur,Bangalore,Ahmedabad,New Delhi...n now Mumbai...yet nothing done except increased security AFTER the attacks....STUPID POLITICIANS N STUPID GOVT.....

Now, About college:

Adrenx-three weeks ago:
It happened on Nov 9th....Enjoyed a lot...Usually ,I've always hated big social gatherings...i kinda feel awkward with so many poking eyes....But it didnt bother me much this time...c
os i, this time was fully occupied during the entire course of the function...
I was made the Computer Guy....But i wud like to call myself the Dj of the function...I had to randomly select songs for the full day...Catering a large number of guys did have its worst case scenarios...a few irritations...but it felt good that i was able to contribute in some way....after all our batch "Wragorianz" were the organizers this time...
The function ...not much different...the usual...kuthu dances,good food,seniors-juniors,fun...etc..

Ecstasy too happened:

Our college culturals programme 'Ecstasy' also happened this week...
I went during the evening of first day of culturals...Pranesh western dance was good..below his usual-par....but still better than the others...way better...But he was given second...I fell a bit pissed....what the hell...the judges were dumb n so naive...cant do much about it...
Enjoyed a lot with my pals...in our last row....shouting insults n whistling always...

Didn't go for the next two days....function still goin on ....it aint gonna miss Aun n Arun aint gonna regret missin it it...Its jus that the function never improves....so stupid n gross most of the time....nothing like innovative thinking ...Its been the same for last three years....

Pranesh won second in two dances n won first in fashion show....n he ended the function in a very 'pranesh-like' manner....

Heroes Saga-Gooooood

I watched two full seasons of 'Heroes' n ten episodes of current season 3....i had three days leave....nothing much to do other than being lazy....

Over all, it was really good...well thought n had a great mythology to it....loved the first two seasons....but the 3rd season...i feel is lagging behind...The writers are tossing out characters here n there...but still good....

It has good logic about the way people think,react in different situations...also has a good concept of evolution ...i really liked how 'natural selection' was put to good tales in the series...

I liked the characters Eden n Niki....one soooo cute n other so sexy....both of them died during the course of the series....why god why..???

On the whole,The series got me pretty interested in Psychology n Evolution...I wanna read about those two in the coming weeks...Lets see how that plays out...


Other Trivia:

- I did my ophthal case presentations very well it seems...i was so afraid of screwin up in that...

- Tried reading 'unlikely spy' n 'five people we meet in heaven'....Didnt like em both...still searchin which genre i like....I really liked twilight first part....It had me goin light speed...others just make me doze off..

- Wished my Mom n Dad ..."happy anniversary" today....I dont think i've wished them both before(wished mom last yr)...what kind of a son am  i ???  but will wish em for every year from now..

- Went for shopping with prnsh n prvn...to buy a jean for Prvn....me n prnsh ended up buyin a pair of sweat-pants each...n prvn bought nothin....

- My pal Shiva shankar started a new blog....We r blogger buddies now...

- Rumor mills running steady .....Bulb Subramani continues his impromptu fling with his affectionate one...passionate glances exchanged from both sides....

11:53 AM ,Monday - November 17th...

I'm in a really happy pleasant n serene mood now....
Jus saw Forrest Gump.... really good movie...sorta like an epic....
Saw it the first time a few years back...i loved it then....but now seeing it once again after i've gained enough movie n world knowledge.....i noticed a lotta things that i didn't notice on my first watch....Like..

- Jenny turns out to be slutty becos she was abused as a child...i didnt realize this back then..didn't know it...

- n the thing forrest feels uncomfortable while in jenny's dorm...

- n about Lef.Dan too.....how he empathizes towards Gump....why he shouts at the hookers...cos he feels makin fun of Gump is like makin fun of himself...

-n a lot of symbolic n meaningful scenes like why the feather flies in air first n also durin the end of the movie...n how forrest feels so lonely at times...

n a heap of other things on this second viewing....
n i seem to like it even more now....
i think its a movie in which u understand n learn different things while watchin it during different stages of ur life...

Vampire Frenzy grips me tight....

For the last two weeks....I've been strangely fascinated n highly excited about vampires....Dunno whether its good or bad...But i'm down with vampire mania...
It all started with me reading the book 'Twilight' to pass time during power cuts....a vampire romance story....dark n romantic...i bought the sequel 'New moon' ....finished it in two days time...
didnt hav enough money to buy the next book....So i downloaded the sequel 'eclipse' n got it into my iphone n finished it too....today....



thats actually 544 + 608 + 629 pages.....  = 1781 pages in 2 weeks....the last two books in 5 days...

I saw the movie "Bram Stoker's Dracula " last week...
I've also downloaded a movie "Let the right one in" a vampire horror drama story....
n most of my internet searches hav been related to vampires or about Twilight....Me...??

For you info - I'm a highly impatient guy even for a small magazine n even the thought of horror movies makes me panic...

Its just that the story n myth about vampires have been so captivating, so fascinating, so compelling ,so gripping n intriguing for me...

The first book 'Twilight' was really good...so refreshing....soo romantic....yet the narration had a lot of adjectives n adverbs which slowed down the pace a little..

The second book 'new moon' was initially great ...lagging behind in middle n picked up pace in last half....

The third book 'eclipse' ...better than new moon..the narration was better with less slow pages n was darkly romantic too,but could never match with first book.....read this book from start to finish in my iphone...actually reading in my iphone was better than readin from a book....

N the best news is 'Twilight' is being released as a movie..on Nov 21st....I have seen all the trailers n all news about the movie...expecting it a great deal...

I think i will start reading the next book 'Breaking dawn' from tomorrow....in my iphone...can't wait to start...

Since Diwali...Till today...

Huh...Its been nearly half a month since my last post....I was jus lazy n didnt feel like writing....

Lots of things have happened in this time...LOTS.....

Let me begin with a happy note...

Had a Great Diwali....

Enjoyed my Diwali holidays to the fullest...went to kovilpatti,my native...Nearly 5 families under one roof...had a really gooood n much needed family time....
Didnt burst much crackers....jus did a little to contribute to the already hefty smoke...Funny,During my childhood i anticipated diwali mostly for the crackers...now my adhesion has waned a little it seems....now its mostly about eating n relaxin n havin happy talks...

Met my school friends...three of them(Dinesh,Saravanan,Arun) after a really long time....

Met my most fav of school teachers...

I wanted to meet Mangai sir,my chem teacher...for a long time...the last time i met him was jus by chance in a restaurant ....
n He was my neighbour next door in my native town...i met him along with my cousins(who were also his students)....n had along chat with him...
I've been procrastinating this meet for a long time n i felt relieved finally....
He was a great inspiration n a great influence on me...

Attended Pranesh Bro marriage...

Came back to nellai after the hols n left the same day to Chennai with my friends to attend Pranesh Bro's marriage..travelled thro bus,my longest bus travel since birth evening 5 to next morn 10...We attended only the reception...the wedding was very early in the morning n we were lazy buffs...
we roamed Chennai...jus the traditional shopping spots...Spencers,City centre etc...
I bought a book (Th Newmoon) n a headset for my iphone...
Returned in train with dad...the rest of the pack once again made their hefty journey home thro bus...reaching nellai 5 hours after me...he he he...


Now to other things...

-> My grandma had a minor surgery...to relieve her the pain caused by an anal fissure...she's now havin a good recovery...thank God for that..

-> My attendance has been lagging in pediatrics dept...n my absence due to chennai trip has exacerbated the lagging...Hav to take care of that in next sem..

-> Adrenx is coming...this sunday....its jus a function we have among dayscholar boys...My batch is organizing the event this year...Everyone else is highly excited n involved in working for the event...while i myself am searchin for a petty excuse to skip the event...I dont think i'm gonna enjoy it this time...I liked it when i was a junior...n now me bein the senior n all...i dont think i will like the function that much...

-> Our batch lost a cricket match with juniors...although i always knew that was gonna happen...it struck others a little hard...

-> Pravin's B'day is tomorrow...n i've a surprise gift for him....a useful gift...n i know he needs it...

-> My college cultural fest 'ecstasy' was cancelled due to some discontentment between gents n gals hostel....too bad i was expecting those holidays...


Not to forget the gossips...

-> Isaac's not so secret gal pal....is actually a medical student....most probably third year...He was found saying "why didn't u study lacrimal apparatus n orbit...i said u na??"  during a not so private talk in the pediatrics auditorium...so who cud that be....??mystery prevails....n isaac grins..

thats it for two weeks...
