Strange are thy ways of life...

Four days, and literally 45 hours into my new job, I think, it's too early to actually conclude that this is what I would be doing as a career later in life. I have been fascinated by communication. Am passionate about media, I always have been. I love to experiment and I have been doing just that for the past four years. Have been in all medium. Radio, yea been there, blabbered and made money. Advertising You may ask, yea! Worked in two different ad agencies in B'lore and chennai and had truck loads of fun. Worked with a cameraman and also ended up making a couple of corporate films, ad films and also a music video. Life has always been interesting ever since I took up my communication studies. Everyday when I get up, I see a challenge ahead and if I don't end up facing one at the end of the day, I begin to feel agitated. begin to question myself. Challenges in terms of my love life, in terms of family, in terms of the ppl I face and in terms of school, college and work and just about anything and everything. Would be finishing my masters in the next three months and I still am not sure what is it that I really want to do in life? I love this situation that I'm in now..totally open for new options and totally game for anything in life, But on an average you meet so many ppl everyday and if you keep giving them the same answer, they begin to question you ability. They begin to wonder, what's this kid upto? and some very annoyin- Kids these days remarks...Not that I care bout all that or they put me off..Since when did I ever care what others want out of me? I would do anything in this world for ppl I care about, but for ordinary jerks and losers,I don't care a flying frog as to what they want..PERIOD.

Well,am Asst.Producer(trainee) promos in Star Vijay rite now, watever that means. will be here workin for them for another two months, and then when I finish my masters I would just move to b'lore or bombay. Was really looking fwd for my stint with channel V in bombay. But unfortunately It didn't really work out as planned. But then I still have an offer from them to come as soon as I finish this course.

Blogging has become an interesting part of my life now and I'm really addicted to it, I must say. Love this community and have been doing my share of BLOG EVANGELISING to a lot of ppl and hooking ppl on to it.For all the regulars who come here and for the new comers..Thanx for droppin in and being a part of my world.I don't get time to sit and update my blog every day like a few SOFTWARE GUYS I KNOW..heheheh..I would love to. But then I love the interaction that happens in my comments box more than my post. It's what you feel bout the post and it's wat u guys say to me that matters, coz what I write is what I know. So excuse me if I get into hybernate mode every now and then and then come out with stupid posts like this one.

WATCH OUT FOR PROMOS FOR A SHOW CALLED "AZHAGI" in star Vijay next week...The concepts are mine...heheheh.Free publicity!!!!!!

Battery Full charge..Nemma Bangalooroo ki Jai !!

20 days into my so called BREAK from things, and well Am already completely recharged and feeling over the moon. It’s amazing to see the difference that one faces when left alone and when one is happy. I had been working my Butt off for almost two months and I was beginning to lose it. That’s when I decided TO HELL WITH IT, am going. I didn’t care where or when or for how long. I just had to take off and this time not to take anything with me other than my few presentable T-shirts and my very loyal but stressed out pair of jeans.(I love you). And then I went home to coimbatore. Was greeted with amazing weather and familiar faces, but then I was beginning to feel claustrophobic in my own house for the first time. So I said to myself, “this can’t be happening? Am here to have fun and I shall have it no matter wat” and that’s when B’lore happened. I love this place. Laid back and so chilled out. It’s the best place to come and charge the soul and drown in some serious spirits. And I did just that. I literally forgot my mail password and Blogging also took a back seat, and I hate to admit it, I really missed the blogging more than my e-mails.
From the second I walked into this lovely city, I was smiling. I was really happy and it’s about time I came here. B’lore has always been my second home though I’ve lived longer in Chennai. Most of my close family and friends are here. They are happy here and It’s always good to see happy faces and like I always say, Ppl have actually lost the art of smiling and it’s become extinct. But I don’t know wat is it that makes ppl so happy ot be here? Gorgeous women? YUP that is a BIG BONUS for all..but is that all? What makes this place so special to me? Am still tryin to figure that one out!! Though I was in B’lore to attend my uncle’s wedding, oh yea. It was absolutely brilliant. Most of my family were here and it was fun throughout. And I love my little cousins. They would walk up to me every morning and I woke up to the sounds of “ABINDH” wat u doin? And that was it, my day was made before it even began. And I think am getting older cause my back just gave up after all the lifting of these little ones in the past two weeks. Would have been happier if I could have got that perfect 10 abs like the one I saw in ZERO G. I have been soooo high on SPIRITS literally that it’s not funny. And this one night was just absofreaking wonderful. My first ever ROYAL PUB HOPPING. We started in Zero G( Ankush, god bless u) he’s the owner of the place and well he happens to be family(not really, but chalega) and he has saved many a cover charge for us lesser mortals. Yea, so in Zero G at 8 and the drinking started, we were 15 of us. All family. I LOVE MY FAMILY! And we went wild on the dance floor. A woman on the opposite table was giving me the looks all evening and finally she managed some courage to walk up to me and offer me a TEQUILA. Two shots later, she introduces her husband to me and THEN tells me, she loves my hair and I was brilliant on the dance floor. Thank you, AND THEN..she says “You can call me. And then gives me her number” whoa!! What is the world upto? I was the topic of discussion for the next three days including that nite in my family. Then at 1:30 we had another Tequila-this time it was one for the road and then headed off to INSOMNIA another pub. It was cool and by the end of it all, I had a sprained neck and I was so tired that I slept most of that day. I LOVE THIS PLACE. Oh! I said that already? Ok cool whatever.
In between all the partying and chillin out. I also met up with a lot of my friends from my undergrad days and I have to say. Am blessed with wonderful friends and I think they all have a huge part in my life as to WHO I AM RITE NOW AND WHAT I AM. Cheers guys!! Met a couple of wonderful bloggers too. And well they are exactly what they are in their blogs. Funny, weird, smart and Great fun to be with.
Hey! You two have made my trip much more wonderful. Thanks and it was a pleasure to meet u.
And it would be really bad on my part if I don’t mention the other person who was in touch with me thro SMS when I was here in b’lore and well, it would have been cool if I could have met u too.
And well I was supposed to be in Chennai by now. But am not. Am still here in this special place. Looking at all the gorgeous women, at all the happy faces and all the happening places and I just have one thing in my mind. It’s winter already and the holiday season has just begun.

It's always the best feeling...

"Welcome to Coimbatore station, Coimbatore station mein aapka swagath hai, Coimbatore station ungalai inidhey varaverkiradhu"

Love those's just an awesome feeling, reachin cbe in the mornin with the pleasant breeze and the cold weather welcoming you along with your dad. With a two day stub and very clearly bugged that the train was late and he also had to rush back home to drop my brother in college for his exam..MAN..I really pity this man..For one month he's been living with my brother in the house, since my mom has gone to ireland..And my poor dad doesn't know how to cook..YUP...The trouble starts there!!!

The train journey was lousy to say the least. Went in to my seat and saw a bunch of drunk PArty people travellin with me..Ok am not goin to say which party they belonged to.(but I think green was their fav colour) hehehe...I've had interesting train journeys a number of times, have made nice contacts and met weird, funny and highly intelligent ppl in my travel.But this is goin to be a new experience. They were LOUD..ANnoying and were talkin bout party politics.Not a very appealing topic to say the least. Went to my seat, asked the guy who was literally using my seat as a plate to clean it and move it ( actually wanted to say shove it) but then didn't want to. They moved and the coach was SMELLING of cheap booze..Thank god for small mercy. I had my cd man and a few cd's my nite was made. LINKING PARK, METALLICA and BOB MARLEY were travelling with me in the train and also got a call from my bestest frund. so Awesome over all.
Reached half an hour late in coimbatore. The weather was simply super cool. Gentle drizzle and cool breeze. Went home to find a rather clean house considering the fact that TWO men were living there for the past one month..No food and refrigerator full of old food..Smellin..hehehe..I love my DAD..
Slowly when I was sinking into the whole..ahhhh am on a vacation mode..I got a shock. My net connection at home Ain't workin..booo hooooo...and then my dad is really busy with some work and so his timings in office is from 9 to about 10. My bro has an exam and so he is stayin with his friends and studyin, mom is still in ireland..So actually am here and HOME ALONE:D heheheh

Blogs should wait for a few days..I MISS readin all ur posts, and I miss sittin in front of the comp all day...But then I just need to cool off for a have fun and I shall drop into ur worlds real soon.take care and enjoy..Peace

Planning to go to B'lore sooner than expected. Will be there sometime on the 6th...
**Watch Out*
