Suggestively it might be titled, but its actually my second-time-first-post on blog.
I had started a blog called Nirvana sometime back. Like most of my new 'ventures', it didnt last long.
Hope this one doesnt meet the same fate.
I hope to post something new every sunday. Something includes a new article, few hyper interesting links, a funny one-liner/joke (something that i made or just came across) etc.
Hey Wow! Good there is no 'About Yourself' section. Its getting more & more difficult by the day to write something in it. I am still on a self-exploration journey. :). And even if i make a try, as if that matters!
Cricket (-Crazy): abso-fucking-lutely crazy. I have devoured Cricinfo so much i might add it to my resume as a software i have worked on. Square-cuts, Wrong'uns, Reverse-swinging Yorkers, Michelles, 'Dizzzy' Gilespie, 'FIGJAM' KP, Sachin, The Princes of Kolkata & Trinidad, Wasim & Waqar, Why Steve Waugh's Double at Kingston was Greatest Innings of 90s, BCCI-bashing, Harold Pinter & Mick Jagger's cricket-love & so on. Wait & watch this space if you really care.
Metal (-Head): started with Linkin Park & Limp Bizkit. Axl & Slash, James & Kirk, Ozzy & Tony came next. Changed me forever. Let there Be Rock. Heavy-fucking-'Metchul'.
Eminem is a great artist too! I like his lyrical vigor, the aggression.
Movie (-Buff): The Most Beautiful Art to Express an Idea, an emotion, whatever.
Last Watched 'Snatch'. Like all men [except Karan Johar & likes] I liked Snatch too ;) .
- Rosebud: Where?
- Avi: London.
- Rosebud: London?
- Avi: London.
- Gemologist: London?
- Avi: [Irritated] Yes, London. You know: fish, chips, cup 'o tea, bad food, worse weather, Mary-fucking-Poppins... LONDON.
Books (-worm): Shoulda replaced it with reading. Have read the paper i was eating poha on.
Internet(-surfing): Thanks to Tim Berners-Lee, Vint Cerf, Bill Gates, Sabeer Bhatia we have a virtual world out there.
Trivia: www is Hebrew for 666, The Number of the Beast [The One For You & Me;)]
Wordplay: Hope you have got a faint idea already. Love puns, Spoonerisms, Bushisms, Sarcasm, Irony, Satire (okay last three are literary devices rather than just wordplay).
Philosophy : Its kinda fashionable to write it nowadays. But i think therefore i am. Or is it the other way round? Have read some Plato & Nietsche. An amateurish 'crush' set in. Hope something better comes up.
Understanding People: "Psycho-profiling" No, it doesnt mean "Clarice's job at FBI Academy". Decoding, demystifying people is a great art.
Food & Drink: Why most desirable things on earth are fattening or liver-harming?
"Passion" : Again, not that Passion bike. Passion in true sense of word.
Something that made Bill Clinton believe in Surf-Excel Ad "daag acche hai" [stains are good] Trigger my Passion!.
Was this a good start on my first time?! Most of the people generally 'mess it up' in their first time. Did I too? Did You too? Ask Bono.
