YAWN !! Late night post


Hello
Is there anybody in there?
Just nod if you can hear me.
Is there anyone home?
- Comfortably Numb by Pink Floyd

Hi All!!

Yeah finally after a long slumber I am back.At this time of night when India sleeps a lonely soul types away to glory trying to fight off sleep from his groggy eyes.YAWN.Man its really late.I should have been sleeping by now.But ain't this what I have been doing this for years.Being comfortably numb.Looking back in retrospect I guess I could have become so much and done so many things.But invariably a kinda weariness sweeps over me. I can feel a force of drag bogging me down.I can recall a poem we had in school called "The Road not taken" by Robert Frost.This part of the poem really haunts me
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference

Man ain't it it so true.I have always chosen the road more travelled,alwayz being on the safe side of things.Have alwayz been wary of choppy water and waiting earnestly for favorable tide.Never thought I would be trapped in a glass enclosure working for a would-be-top-IT-company with zombies around me.In personal front too I have been a wreck.People have a notion that either I am a 'Saint' or a strong adherent of article 377!!What the heck.I find quite a strong resemblance of my life with the guitar I can see from my bed ,covered by muck with its strings askew,waiting in non-nonchalance for some hand to pick it up,tighten the strings and start strumming.
Well,junta really apologizes for the vapid stuff.I am loosing my writing streak too.I guess I will take a swig from the Finlandia bottle that is luring me.Dozing off from now with beautiful lines by Robert Frost again.

The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep......zzzzZZZZ

good morning ... utho .. u still sleepng ... the "saint" word sakshi had used on u ... but i too agree on that ..

the pics the post are quite good...
Lovely!One of the best writers on The wall mag is back after a hiatus.And I didn't even have to read the post to figure out who would ve written this post.I just logged on to the website,and from the the pic itself knew that it has to be Karma!
Anyway,I guess,I can very well relate to the "weariness" you are talking about.At times,I'm also a victim of that sweeping "weariness"-the feeling of getting stuck in a manhole for ages,but whenever I get that "sinking" feeling,I somehow pull up my socks again and tell myself that I am not giving up.
Probably.the song Someday by Bonjovi very well expresses the feeling which we are talking about.A great spirit lifter it is!

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
