disconnected by itself, and all i could see was the wallpaper ... I was wondering what would hav
happened if I were to get a call in dat time.. I'd attract so many stares from people around who
would think I was showin off ..!! :D
There are many such incidents that have occured over the past few weeks..
Like on the day of the school re-union, my friend and I were speedin up to school.. and just then,
a cab stopped right in front of us, and this girl called me by my name and asked me if I wanted a
lift , as she was going for the re-union too..!! I couldn't recollect her name or anything about her..
all I knew was I was in a hurry and a lift would surely hav helped !! The whole cab journey, I had my fingers crossed hoping she wouldn't make conversation ! :D
The worst of the lot was when I was trying to imitate my favourite Chandler laugh when he's
upto some prank ... was looking into the mirror trying to get it right.. when my neighbour who had recently moved in.. walked in and burst out laughing... she was lookin at me since the past 5
minutes from another mirror that reflects the image .. I couldnt do much but laugh with her.. !! :D
All of us have been into such situations one time or the other ... and all we can do is blush with embarrassment or laugh at ourselves and get away with it ..!! I tag everyone to share their such stories as comments/posts .. :)

Confusions of a Dangerous Mind
Me (*panting*): Ma'am , may I come in please?
Sushmitha Ma'am: No
And I went back .. crying.... terrribly... Now, Sushmitha Ma'am is very particular about punctuality, and it's usual for her to say NO to people who are even a minute late. I was wondering what is it that made me sob so bad.. for 30 mins after she said NO .. !!
Since the last 3 weeks, I'm unable to explain things that I do, the way I think... and its scaring me all the more. People tell me I have changed, in a way that I didn't realise on my own.. They say I don't take anyone close now, I keep all of my friends at some distance, and treat them equally.. And nothing affects me so much.. And yes, they were true about that.. I don't know why ... Maybe its cuz I've been hurt so much in the past that I've decided I wont let things affect me the way they used to, and avoid getting hurt.. But it didnt work the way I wanted it to... My behaviour is affecting people around me, and its hurting them , which is inturn making me feel bad about myself..
I can't explain that fear within me .. I keep feeling guilty .. like I'm not being true to people.. its the worst feeling one can ever have..
Feeling better having written this down..
I couldn't have put this into words any better than this..

"I HEAR dead people"
I had been to a friend's place to vashi on Saturday, for the weekend.. I always go there, the last
time I went there her dog Simba bit me.. I still dared to go there this time when she forcefully
asked me to come, but told her I wanted her dog leashed till the time I'm there, she agreed. :)And when I got there, they told me another incident that has been happening since a few months now.. Had they told me before I could go there, I don't think I would have gone !!
Delhi..What she and her younger sister told me is.. Whenever their dad goes outdoors, exactly at 2.30 a.m. at night their balcony latch starts making noise as if someone is fiddling with it
continuously.. Moreover, they can hear a lady making a weird noise, and sometimes crying
outside their bedroom door. They sleep in the bedroom with the door locked.. They had even
tried opening the door but they never saw anyone, they could only hear noises. And Simba starts sniffing the bedroom door and starts barking .. the same way that he does when someone comes to their place..
She said she too didnt believe them at first but once when she herself heard the latch making so
much noise, she froze in fear !! I asked them if they did anything about it, and she said she did
perfom some ritual ("Havan" for those who understand) to drive away that spirit, but it didn't
work. Sometimes it also happens when their dad is not outdoors, but her dad hasn't experienced
anything of that sorts till date. Aunty says its maybe cuz uncle is a heavy sleeper, but its really
strange that he didnt experience it even ONCE.
building, on the 6th floor (they live on the 2nd floor), and would take rounds on the terrace. The
children troubled her a lot cuz she was eccentric. She used to murmur stuff like ... "dekh lungi
sabko..." She died recently and hers wasnt a natural death. She was crossing the tracks and a train hit her, it was fatal.People in their society say they too have had experiences of her....
legs, planning stuff on how we'll scare off the ghost away.. !! but when we went to sleep that night they made me wear that chain and kept the bedroom door locked (though her dad was at
home,why take chances!).. I also had my earphones ON and was listening to music on my phone
at the loudest volume so that I don't get to hear anything else !!! Thankfully nothing happened.

Happily Married !
People have different perspectives and different reasons of getting married...
1. Most of the time, its parents who want their (grown-up) kids to have their own families and settle down in life .. also called as an "arranged marriage"
2. For some couples, marriage happens when they get to know each other, fall in love and decide they want to grow old together as well..
3. For some, it maybe the fear of being alone in the later halves of their lives..
4. And for the rest, its a license to have sex !! :D (True!!)
I would always ponder on what could be MY reason IFFFF I get married (mind u, dats a Big IF there!)
Going bottom to top--
As of now, I don't fear being alone in life .. as there are a million things I want to do for which even a lifetime wouldn't be enough.. I'll keep myself busy, no worries! :)
Secondly, I'm happy with just a driver's license ! :D
So the last two reasons are ruled out here.
Point no. 2 would be the only reason I would want to get married, but chances of that happening are negligible.. Being a FOSLA member (incase u haven't read my earlier posts, it stands for Failed One Sided Lovers Association :D ), falling in love is as difficult as solving Physics Equations !!!
Coming to point 1 , I never really understood the concept of an arranged marriage.It differs everywhere. Formerly (or still in some households), a girl, or a bride would be chosen by the photo that she sends out. I really dont understand how a guy decides whom to spend the rest of his life with just by looking at that photo. Isn't knowing the person more important people??Anyways, so after this photuu-shotuu selection, the couple then would tie the knot where actually, they'd get to see each other for real !! Now that's really ridiculous... I would be lucky in this case, since my photos turn out to be 10 times better than what I actually look like !! Mandap se hi bhaag jaaayega yedaa :D And what if , God forbid, this girl gets chickenpox, or smallpox, or any kind of "pox" dat makes u look all ugly .. would the guy (her husband then) stop loving her then?
A tradition which 'modern' families follow ..
Guy meets girl, girl meets guy. Guy drinks chaai. He likes it. Boom! And they get married...!
(A nice concept for a tea advertisement by da way!)
This is done so that they meet each other atleast before marriage. I STILL don't get it. Is a day, or an hour enough to know someone and decide you want to grow old with this person?
THIS I told my mom. She told me the "getting-to-know" phase comes after the engagement is done. And what if, after this phase, I realise I don't like the guy after all ! What happens to the guy then? What happens to our parents' hopes? All good that can come out of this is relatives and neighbours can gossip to glory!
So... After a lot of thought, I decided.. Till the time I find those Physics Equations easier, I'm happily married - to my single status ! ;-)
