Tagged by Insignia!

Girly image, yes, know. Get over yourself already :|

Okay, so I have nothing to do and feeling too lazy to move my fat ass to get the TV remote. Also, this month seems to be Tag-o-mania month...people have been tagging me left right and centre. Now I know how the donkey's bum feels like when people run after it with a needle and a tail.

No's not a real donkey.
A paper....Oh forget it!

So, Insignia(intriguing name innit?) tagged me with this. Seems quite light, so here goes:

1. Grab the book nearest to you, turn on page 18 and find line 4 - "It was Narak the Demon-hunter who went to Imokoi and made a daring rescue" (The Simoquin Prophecies by Samik Basu)
(Any bengali should hugely enjoy this book. Half the characters and places are named after the bengali names for objects...super fun and actually a really good book)

Stretch your left arm out as far as you can & catch what? – My modem got knocked down :P

What is the last thing you watched on TV? – Last night - Shashuri Zindabaad - A bengali comedy on Zee Bangla.

(Ultimate dialogue - Your lips are like a slice of an off-season orange)

4. Without looking, guess what time it is? – 6:05pm

Now look at the clock, what is the actual time? – 6:16 PM....Decent!

6. With the exception of the computer, what can you hear?- Lots and lots of birds chirping, crows drowning out most of it...damn crows! They shit on my head one more time and I shoot on sight!

7. When did you last step outside? What were you doing? – At 4:00 pm, watching the telephone repair guys fiddle with our telephone connection.

8. Before you started this Q&As, what did you look at?- Other blogs, Facebook, Gmail and a Fullmetal Alchemist episode.

What are you wearing? - What's with the perverted questions huh? Who made this Tag?! X-(
Well, a white T-shirt and tracks. I'm off to the gym in 10 minutes.

10. When did you last laugh? – 5 minutes back when my friend called to tell me how he fell down in the bathroom and his.....erm...leave that for later :P

11. What is on the walls of the room you are in? – A HUGE poster, a switchboard, a mirror and shelves that hold my stuff.

12. Seen anything weird lately? – Yeah, two monkeys mated on my AC outside my window this afternoon while I tried to solve a problem on time and efficiency...Go figure...

What do you think of this quiz? Good way to spend fifteen minutes :D

14. What is the last film you saw? - Final Destination 3-D. It sucked BIG time. The story didn't even come close to the first ones. The 3-D effects were really good though.

15. If you became a multimillionaire overnight, what would you buy?- A Mercedes Benz SLR Mclaren, an Alienware PC pimped up to the max, HD Audio System with independent connections to each room in my house, including the bathroom, and a HUGE swimming pool in my backyard. Also, I'd buy over Pizza Hut :P (Dominoes needs you to be a multibillionaire)

Tell me something about you that I dunno!- I truly and deeply believe magic and the creatures of lore existed, and still do, just that they don't show themselves to us.

If you could change one thing about the world, regardless of guilt or politics, what would you do?- The One World theory. If everyone in this world got along with everyone else, problem solved.

18. Do you like to Dance?- I dance in my head, coz I got two left feet. I also sing in my head. My head loves multi-tasking.

19. Imagine your first child is a girl, what do you call her?- "Arya" or "Godhuli". Arya is right from the time I read Eragon. She fascinated my imagination and I loved the name. "Godhuli" means "bathed in the light of the setting sun". Had come across someone on Orkut with that name. Loved it at once.

20. Imagine your first child is a boy, what do you call him?- "Ashwin" or "Aryan"....anything with "A". I don't want him to go through the torture of being right at the end of the roll-call. (Although it wasn't that get loads of time to prepare before you are called in for practicals)

21. Would you ever consider living abroad? – Mera Bharat Mahaan! Nothing beats living in your own country. Ghar ka lagta hai.

22. What do you want GOD to say to you when you reach the pearly gates? – Hey man! How did I fare?

Life's a game and how much you win depends on how you play it. Relax. Think. Feel. Live.

Now, this wasn't that bad...I tag:


and everyone who reads this and isn't too lazy to take the pains :P

You already decided what to name your kids? Oh my god! People are getting crazier day by day! :D

Psst.. I have decided too! :P

Oh btw, Arya is a super nice name! :)
Insignia said…
Is 'Insignia' that intriguing? Hmmmmm.....

Loved reading them. You are one lucky fellow to be having birds and monkeys around your home... Ahem..ahem with what the monkeys did anyways.

Do those crows shit on your head? :-D I would like to enlighten you that its considered a lucky charm in Italian culture. (Not specifically crow, but any bird...) So lucky boy you are!!

@ Dhanya

This tag called for it :P

Take it up...I wanna know what you'd name yours!
Shaunak said…
@ Insignia

Definitely intriguing. It was the first thing that caught my eye.

Well, the monkeys do tend to lose control.
Also they don't wear pants :|

Let's not get into that :P

The crows are like trained WWII bombers. They'll never shit when the road's empty. The moment you step onto the road, BOMBS AWAY!!!!
And all you see is white goop heading your way.

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!

(I think this deserves an applause :P )


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

(sadly jis ladki ko yeh shayari maari, she ran away disgusted. I haven't been able to figure out why :| )


Birthday post and BACK TO BLOGGING!!

(Left to right: Abhishek, Jahnvi, Yours truly, Karen, Zubair, Neeraj, Alisha)

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…
