Jam Jam Enna Jam

For some reason the Compose mode seems to be missing in this window, so can't use the fav among the ones given - Trebuchet Ms ..

It is ages since i wrote here. Many reasons attributing to it, my laziness, lack of motivation to write anything, my exams (the last of which i will get rid of this saturday), and many more ....

Every evening I sit in that "royal" transportation from the heavenly E-city back to "city", thousands of blogs fly through my mind - about how irritating it is to see even kids walk by your bus faster than it rolls, how i can count the number of stones by the roadside everyday (just that the exact place where I cound changes), and how I can participate in a "Yawning" competition and create a guinness Record.

It is a big pain travelling in Bangalore, and especially if you are one of those most unlucky ones who have not mastered the art of sleeping in bus, you are close to dead.

For a mere distance of 17 kms, I take on an average of 1 and half to 2 hours to reach home, every single day. Each day I reach home and lecture Rajesh about the ills of staying in this over-populated, polluted, nasty dirty place - and that we should immediately pack our bags and leave to another place, when a call from home stating just how "very hot" the days was - breaks my resolve ...

Bangalore's traffic reminds me of the Sundrop ad, the guy with such a big paunch, that you can count the number of hairs sticking out between two buttons in his shirt... It is like it is just about to explore...

Every day I set out with the positive thought in my mind, hoping that by some miracle everything is set right and come back with a black thunder cloud on my head, fuming at every possible thing that could go wrong ..

Friday - The Saree Day

Friday is a one off kind-a day. Most of the people in software industry have their own reasons to feel happy about this day - most of them concurring at the fact that the next two days are "OFF" ..
In My office, girls are allowed to wear "informal" (dirty minds - stop thinking too much) clothes (as in jeans, skirts etc) only on Fridays. So, we 3 (the trio we were in Chennai) always loved to watch folks in office on a Friday. Fridays would be our longest lunch times - looking at each girl's dress, admiring/commenting it, learning what is new in fashion and wondering how ever guys could get themselves to work, when there were so many pretty girls around ...
Here in b'lore, there is a certain trend that i have prominently noticed - the saree trend on Fridays... Most of the girls form gangs and decide to wear sarees ... some of the girls and sarees (not necessarily both - all the time) are gorgeous , that even I give them a third/fourth look ...
Saree in itself is the most beautiful clothing a women can ever wear, i feel .... With the pallu swish-shaying behind and the fleets in front dancing to the tunes of the steps , it gives a crowning glory feeling and look to the wearer....
It is indeed a treat for the eyes to be walking around the campus at crowded times like lunch/b'fast/5:15 (when most of the folks rush to catch bus) ...
