Confessions of a love-struck kid

Here we go with the second entry of the contest.
---------
I am least hopeful of the crown of Mr Whacko. I feel like David amongst the Goliaths ;-). No seriously my nomination will surely be a entry with the Olympic's principle 'Participation rather than winning. I am into this contest for the spirit of TOPFLOORers.

As I sit down to write something on my whackiest moment, the first thing that came to my mind was when I was still a kid who was getting used to his new school in second standard. That age I was still an innocent child and still coming to terms to understand the relationship between a girl and boy, though it still might be confusing at times. So I a young lad of 6 years was going to a new school in the big city of Madras. Parents are always apprehensive about their children at a new place. No wonder my mom got hold of a colony didi (she was one or two years senior) to keep me out of troubles at school.

So there she was coming to me at the small recess & long recess time. I was more the happy as I had someone familiar at an alien place. The recess time was always the best part during school days. You could share a lot of gossips with of course the tiffins. There was the recess & there were gossips too.

Some days went by and then my 'little' class mates began speculating !! Yes where on earth did they get the notion of me getting along with that girl. Somedays went by and one day to settle the matter once and for all, they called a gathering of the full class. Then begun the allegations and I had no defence. One by one all came up with fabricated piece of stories of my 'love story' with Priya. Ya that was her name. They had seen me eat lunch with her under the school bell. They had seen me walking hand-in-hand with her on a rainy day. They had seen me waiting impatiently for her at the bus stop. With all these visuals, they created a very lovely picture of my 'Love Story'.

Now the most embarrassing part. They discussed everything and then they concluded that 'I was in LOVE'. That conclusion was not enough for them and now they wanted to hear it from the horse's mouth !! So I was surrounded by the entire class and according to the consensus I would have to say out aloud the line 'I LOVE PRIYA'. Now I kept on saying the matter was altogether different but no one would listen to me. I was a culprit to them, I would have to take the punishment.

So there I was standing in front of an audience of 6 years old ladies & gentlemen, saying out loud 'I LOVE PRIYA'. I could have turned into several colors that day out of sheer embarrassment. Well that punishment was the last time I said the the beautiful phrase & I am waiting for that punishment to happen again.

Well that's it. This is one of my early memories & it surely makes me smile even today. This may not be upto the standard of whackiest at this forum but that will be my entry for 'Mr. Whacko'. I am all too eager for the post from mannu. So will there be some sort of voting or mannubhai is the sole judge.

This a distress call to all TWM folks. This has been the longest duration of inactivity for TWM. So is it that we are all too busy or have all of us hit the writer's block. Let's break the spell of inactivity....HOW?? WHAT SHOULD I WRITE ABOUT?? I have an incomplete draft, shall I post that? May be I will do a recap of the past few days..No mood to write paragraphs.. Connect the dots yourself.. * Kaminey - Movie was good, the ending could have been better..The bong mafia coming with a long gun to the fight scene was really comic..Fahid Kapoor ki acting mast thi..waifey aap log ye movie dekhey kya?? * Books - Finally I read the book Love Story by Erich Segal..Hmmm the story is good but the effect of the classic book has not yet got into me..Meanwhile I am also reading 'The Great Indian Novel' by Shashi Tharoor..I will surely recommend this book..Tharoor has splendidly blended the tales from Mahabharata into the modern Indian history.. *Movies - I watched 'Littl

"Trip Kela" season is back!!

"We had joy,we had fun,we had trip kelas every season but the things we used to plan were seasons out of time" Wow!! Seems like the "Kela" season is in the air again!! Why is it that whenever WE plan something ,something has to go wrong!! On our maiden trip to Goa, I had to back out coz my dad was just outta hospital.So I had to be at home.Before our second trip,we had so much discussion regarding a "reunion" trip to Darjeeling during Convo.What happened was evrybody backing out the last month.Raj said that he has already booked tickets for home.Rathz,supposedly, didn't get any tickets for returning to Kolkatta from Cuttack & there I was in Kol doing nothing.Though finally we did go to Digha & the trip was gud BUT our unbeaten record of "Flop Plans" continued. Now, we are probably gonna add an another feather in the cap.The highly anticipated Goa trip which had created so much ripples across the cyberspace(blog,gmail & orkut)

And The Warrior Returns...

Whoa! They call me a professional blogger and I haven't been able to write a single word for any of my personal blogs, be it TWM :: Online , Shayon's Labyrinth or even Timeless Imagination . I guess, that's what happens when all you do, during the day, is blog and then when you come back home, WarCraft is the only reason that inspires you to open up your laptop's lid and hit the power button!   I wouldn't really say that I am stressed out, thanks to my new job as the Chief Editor of WATBlog , one of country's leading advertising and technology blogs. After all, how many have gotten the opportunity and luck (this is something very rare in my destiny) to convert their hobby, their love, into a profession? The down side is, WAT is a startup, in essence. It just turned 2 , the month I joined, and we have an employee strength of just 12. Yes, you read that right. So, we realize that there is a lot of potential in the market and since our niche is very nascent, it
