Random thoughts


Itching to write but someone's turned an off-switch in my brain. By the way, why is it called "itching"? I thought itching on your palms were supposed to be lucky. My grandma told me that if the palm of your right hand is itchy, then it foretells that money is coming to you. But you shouldn't scratch it as that stops the money from coming. If it’s your left palm that is itchy, then scratch away, as that means that you'll soon be paying out money.
So does that mean that if my nose itches and I scratch it, someone around me will fart?
Or maybe I will.
Better not try.



If your lips itch, press them together and make a wish. It shall come true.
I say if your lips itch, find a girl and kiss her.

An itchy foot means you shall travel. Or call pest control.

An itchy ear means someone's talking about you. So do hiccups. To stop hiccups, drink lots of water. So to stop an itchy ear, pour water down it.

Too many itches spoil the scratch. By the time you figure out what the itch means and whether you should or should not scratch it, it'd have gone anyway. Or you'd have gone mad trying to resist. Either way... :P

Italians say keep a wishbone and dry it in the sun. Touch it whenever you want to make a wish.
Here, a dry piece of chicken? Out in the open? Crow haven!

By the way, Wishbone was also the name of a storytelling dog on a TV show named after it that I used to watch when I was little. Now, where's the link....

Ah..here it is:
World Wide Wishbone
Cutest dog in the world I tell you.

Relationships affect a guy's IQ in absolute inverse proportion to the number of months that they've been going out...It's a smooth transition:

Superman - 6 months
||
||
\/
Gentleman - 12 months
||
||
\/
Watchman - 18 months
||
||
\/
Doberman - 24 months

(readers are advised to keep their perverted brains under strict supervision. The visual representation above may be misinterpreted. Let no one tell you otherwise)


Then talks of marriage creep in and the whole process starts over again with the Doberman stage donning the appearance of Superman with the introduction of another factor that widens the scope of scrutiny, namely, the IN-LAWS!! *insert favourite music of dread and suspense*

Couples! They stick to each other like a fevicol ad. PDAs are a bit uncool now...keep it private...each time I pass Marine Drive I see couples battling it out under the hot sun with a minuscule umbrella to shade them. And by battling it out I don't even mean the sun.
All I hear in my head at that point of time is:
GROPE GROPE GROPE GROPE.....

My browser Firefox Rocks! It supports so many enhancements.



There have been some MASSIVE upgrades since the last time I downloaded it :P

My friend taught me to dance last week. I have two left feet. So what happens?

Awesome BTL campaigns and Brand Activations!

Okay, so with great power comes great responsibility. Uncle Ben clearly never worked in an ad agency. Even with the chindi powers of an account planner, there comes the responsibility of coming up with the wildest strategy ideas that the brand can accomodate. This brought me to an oft-used old school marketing technique that's been making a comeback in recent times - BTL, urf Below The Line.
See, there were these two sisters A and B. They were strippers at a club. A was the sleazy but slightly less beautiful one while B was extremely hot yet of a nicer nature. Owing to their personalities, their performances were far far different from each other. A always took centrestage, twisted the pole, held the entire crowd's attention. B on the other hand, was the lap dancer, keeping herself to private performances. Since A was right on the stage, she got a lot of tips from the entire crowd, but she could never tell how much she'd get, but it pleased everyone, so it pleased her as …

Classroom Shayaris!

Been a long time! MICA's a blast and there's a lot to do. But in the midst of it all, classroom capers are commonplace. So, presenting a few of what I like to call Classroom Shayaris, courtesy yours truly being bored to death from four hours of sleep and a droning professor:


Tere pyaar ne kar diya pagal,
Tere pyaar ne kar diya pagal,
Shareholder's equity is called share capital!
Wah wah wah!

Dum maaro dum, mit jaaye gum,
Dum maaro dum, mit jaaye gum,
A share's issue price can be at a premium!

Dikhne mein toh tu lagti hai badi sweet,
Dikhne mein toh tu lagti hai badi sweet,
Liabilities and assets come in Balance Sheet!

Birthday post and BACK TO BLOGGING!!

(Left to right: Abhishek, Jahnvi, Yours truly, Karen, Zubair, Neeraj, Alisha)
(ASS YOU'RE MISSING!!)


Gosh! It's been almost a month, and what a month it's been. Pressure, studies, CAT...crazy stuff. But all that comes later. Coz today was my birthday.

People say you find your true friends in the direst and most trying of situations. Situations that test your bond. That test your trust. That's of course true. But in no way is that the only way to know who your true friends are. Because, today, I realized what friendship is all about. It's not about all that mushy stuff, being there all the while, doing things for you....that's all valid, yes, but it rarely happens in day to day life doesn't it? A friend is someone whom you care about, someone you can be yourself and more with, and they won't judge you either way, because they know you in and out.

I used to think a 21st birthday is all about spending time partying, drinking, celebrating your step into the &q…
