So finally a post from my side after a looooong time. May be my last post or last comment was way back in 2003!!.(even the archive disowned it).So the fear of getting ousted from this blog is what forced me to scribble something and mark my presence.
As a matter of fact, the concept of blogging has always eluded me. I have always tried to make sense of blogging but only succeeded partially. ‘I never do stuffs which do not come naturally to me’-this is what I told myself. But now I can trace the reason... When I was in Kolkata and half the college(not exaggerating!) was staying together in Kolkata, I never felt the urge to communicate with my friends via cyber space while in physical space I was sharing rooms with them, and sometimes bed(no pun intended).Albeit few of my best pals were in different places, the large number of new found friendships occupied the void. But now after coming to Bangalore, for few initials days the suddenly created ‘social circle’ void nearly choked me.But I recovered quickly, thanks to the skin-friendly climate and delicious eateries of Bangalore. May be this is how ‘self preservation’ works. As last night I was browsing through Karma’s newly posted pics from his London itineraries and chatted online with Andy in the morning, the memories of good ol’days came rushing back in my mind and the reminiscence of Kolkata days were enough to tickle my funny bones. In Bangalore I have been deprived of this funny moments. I can no longer crack jokes seamlessly here while talking to people, as half of my energy is wasted in deciphering the head gesture of them which looks something between a ‘yes’ n ‘no’:).
Am I facebook illiterate?
I feel energetic today. So back to back posts!!(actually got nuthin to do in my room)
Shanoob wanted to upload some of my photos on facebook but I pleaded him not to becoz facebook scares me. I have never understood the privacy settings(n I do not intend to) of facebook.If somebody uploads something,chances are there that virtually all facebook users will get that update!...and my this belief got firmly established when one of my school friends got update about my commenting on Karma’s snaps last night. How on earth he got that!!...
That’s why I use facebook as little as possible.While navigating on the pages I try to dodge all potential ‘data leaks’ by clicking less and scrolling more.Here are some of the sample 'news feeds' which caught my attention.....
# Shayantan’s comments(always on top)-first few words of his comments invariably are “WTF”,”What the hell” ,”holy s***”,”f***”etc (A one-stop place of slang vocab builder)
#A and B are now friends with C and D who commented on E’s photo(none of ‘em are my frnds:)..)
#only ‘Like’ buttons but no ‘don’t like’ button!!
