Healthy. Wealthy. And almost Wise.

Sooner or later, one is bound to realise:
  • That there is no joy in actually 'paying' a person to tell you to run on machines, which have ridiculous rotating motors in them, when you'd rather run at the beach.. And to cycle on cycles which take you nowhere really, when you'd rather cycle to your best friend's home & watch TV together..
  • That Health is what you have when your sides hurt, laughing with friends - outside class. But mostly inside of it.
  • That there is much joy in sharing food. With friends, strangers, street-kids. Food & even smiles. Infectious they are, really haan..
  • That 'the more you give, the more you receive'.. Just like Principal Sr Marion said at the School Assembly in Primary School. It is the only Wealth - being able to give, expecting nothing in return (except a smile maybe).. Maybe..
  • That Wisdom comes with age. But sometimes, Age comes alone. So being nice to Uncle Wisdom already will not be such a bad idea. It'll get boring with just Age to keep me company after a while.
  • That the greatest Wisdom right now is - Final CA is ginormous. At various levels..
Gotta get cracking. And I'll realise - sooner, rather than later.

Love affairs of a Lifetime..

With the benefit of hindsight, Pop will be your childhood sweetheart - merely a funny, yet memorable mistake..

House and Trance could be your melancholy whores - pleasurable for but a young and reckless evening or two..

Rock 'n' roll will be your quarter-life crisis companion - fueling quiet thought and rebellion alike, to stick it out with you for life..

Alternative Rock will be your other best bud, introducing you to Club Rock at a party.. or Classic Ballads on your first (second, third..) heartbreak..

Jazz and R'n'B, many might fancy, as the secret love affair when they start taking Rock 'n' roll for granted..

Easy Listening will pillow-talk with you when no one else will.. & is most certain to walk into the sunset with you when your ears are too weak to listen to any more Music, of any kind..

No matter what your Genre, it's the Lyrics that will shine on.. With you, forever..

Save the Lyrics. Only 1409 meaningful songs left! :)

PS: Dedicated to Music. Lyrics. iPods. Baz Lurhman. And also to Jack Johnson - the new age Bob Dylan & my hero!

Cheers. Keedas. Peace. I'm back ;)

Jab koi Bath bigad jaaye..

Al ol' friend Murphy once said, "If something can go wrong, it will."

Aeons later, P. Marshall Jr. (of
'The Law of Diminishing Intellectual Futility' fame) struck gold when she figured another bunch of life's bitter truths which she now proudly & collectively calls 'P. Marshall Jr.'s Laws'.

She will dispense these truths, from the 'Laws of Baths' series, now..

Laws of Baths:
  • If the telephone/ doorbell/ mobile phone must ring, it will ring about a minute and a half after you have lathered up
  • The (bath)room temperature of (bath)H2O will be dreadfully high during summer & shockingly low during winter, as much to your discontent as to mine
  • Shower gels/ body washes will smell pleasant for only about six days after you've opened the seal. They will never smell as pleasant on your skin as they seem to on the skimpily clad woman's skin in the splendidly wondrous advertisement on the television. [Exception to the rule: Soap bars, they hardly ever smell good anyway. Exception to the exception: Dove soap, it smells exceptionally good]
  • If the shower gel/ body wash/ soap bar can run out (cross reference with 'running out of toothpaste while brushing your teeth') during your bath, it definitely most certainly will
  • A bad (bigdaa hua) bath => lack of zest & inspiration => bad day. Ergo, a good bath is essential for the wellbeing of all mankind

Jab koi bath bigad jaaye, jab koi mushkil pad jaaye, please de dena towel mera, O humnawaab..

Cheers. Keedas. Peace.


PS: Currently crooning 'Hey Ya' from Karthik Calling Karhik. It makes you song-singing, foot-tapping, fingers-snappingly happy!
