There's a thin line...

I'm the nice guy. 
I'm the one that sets everything aside 
if he sees you in trouble. 
I'm the one who puts things in perspective
the one who tells you to take it easy.
I'll bend over to accomodate your wishes
to see to it that you smile.
I'm the one that takes care of things,
each time there's something to be done.
I'll look for a million ways to satisfy you
A thousand means to make it happen.
I'm the one you turn to each time you're hurt.
I'm the go-to guy.
But there's a thin line.
And the day that line gets crossed......

Hi Shaunak,

I accidentally stumbled upon your blog. In fact I was looking for a scientific article online for my MS thesis when I came across this. You are immensely talented.

I read this poem, the one on bombay, abt adults, the education system and the Neha series at a stretch! They are all too good!

The Neha series left me tickled as to who the characters might be from SHHS, so I am daring a guess by messaging you on facebook. Please dont be offended if I go wrong!

Please consider writing a book seriously.
Hey Sneha,

How in the world did a scientific search for an MS thesis get you here! :D
I've had an idea for a book for quite some time. Just that I need the time to materialize it.
Your guesses were spot on. Check your FB for the rest.

And needless to say, stick around and keep reading!

Awesome one.. and totally you!!!
Thank you so much :)
Pondered a lot on it actually!

Layout changed again ;)

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…
