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

When I escaped death !!!

12th June'13, 10.30 pm : I was driving back from a dinner party at dizzying speeds of around 80 KMPH inside a city. Then in my  psychedelic drive (yes I get high without alcohol), I saw a signal square few 100 meters ahead. I decreased the speed ( Signals are switched off after 10 pm in Nagpur so exercised caution ) to 60 KMPH (I am an engineer and I like my exact figures) but my car jumped off a speed breaker which I could not spot in the city darkness . I thought I controlled my car by the time I reached the signal square but  baaaaangggg !!! Few seconds later - I realized I was still alive!! saved by the airbag. Take a note everybody. The same day during daytime around 4.30 pm, I was feeling restless with a feeling of fear & anxiety inside me. A friend inquired and I replied back "I can feel something bad is going to happen with me today". That night I was hit by a speeding car straight (at 90 degrees) on the driver's door. Upon impact
