Stalker Scare

Jennifer Lopez sues stalker!! This was the first news I read some days ago when I had just got up. That had me wondering that how jobless can one get. I was surprised to know that stalking is actually a profession!! Awww.... Come on. Following someone around for a living ?? How Pathetic!! Well this is acceptable only in one case, if you're a detective. Having said that I thought that I was lucky not to be a celeb. But before I knew it I had to eat my words :(. Well I'm no celebrity but yet I've had pathetic experiences with creatures who are constantly watching you, observing your every move n worse talking to you about it. Creature = Stalker.

After some research I actually found that stalkers are of more than a type. Usually its a person you know n the one whom you had rubbed the wrong way. Thats the first kind. Next is the kind who in plain simple words is a stranger. The one who monitors your every move. The one who doesnt have a face, yet knows everything about you. These guys claim to know you more than you know yourself or much better than your mom does. Third is the kind.... well you cant officially call them stalkers, but trust me they can easily pass of as one. So happily perched on the third kind are those boyfriends who follow their girlfriends around like a puppy. Hence forth known as the semi-stalker. This blog focuses on the second n third kind of stalkers/losers.

Starting with the second kind. Well after a fun day you go back home only to find a message from a strange number which says, "Looking hot today girlie!!". So after checking with near n dear ones you conclude that this message is from a stranger. Well what can you do in such a circumstance. Can ignore the entire incident. But this seems hard to do when it happens every day n every few minutes. Moreover its hard to ignore someone who actually remembers what you wore for an entire month, what shoes you matched with them, n what hairstyle you had on what day. Well I wouldnt call this funny or romantic. Its plain scary!!

Well if this had been the only case it would have been atleast tolerable. These losers actually stalk you on Orkut/Facebook. Come on guys, Get a life!! If you so badly want that girl, be a man n approach her in person. If you cant do that then better get the word "LOSER" tattooed in bold on your forehead. Some of these guys go to the extents of bad-mouthing your best friends just inorder to get a response from you. Look stalker dude, you may call them what you want. Silly, Uncle or Crazy..... For me they will always remain important n you will always remain a weird loser. Some of these pathetic kind dont give up even when they get to know that you are in a successful serious relationship. You abuse them, avoid them, ridicule them, still their so called "ego" remains boosted. Its not an achievement guys. Trust me. Better mend your ways now, or else the cops will soon be stalking you.

Lets now come to the third kind a.k.a semi-stalkers. These are those so called boyfriends who are stuck to their girlfriend's a**es morning, noon and night. You wake up, they are there. You go shopping, they follow you. You meet your friends, they are there. You want to go to a parlour, yet they are there. You know why? Cos they are patiently waiting for you about 2 centimeters away from the parlour. These are the times when you feel that you are married to that person n done for life. These guys want to know everything. Where you have been n for how long. Whom you met n why. What you wore n when.

Its not romantic, its annoying to the CORE. These guys never change. The only way to get rid of them is to simply dump them. Some girls mistake this for love when it is actually obsession. Before this obsession turns dangerous run woman run.

No matter how many kinds they are, every kind of stalker is equally dangerous. Worse thing is these guys never lose interest in you n even if they do they continue with such cheap antics just for the kick of it. Well here is to all the stalkers who had to go through so much of pain to watch my every move, Losers!! Get a life or end the present one. If not many, there will be atleast one person who will thank you for it. ME!!!

P.S:- All characters in the above blog are purely non-fictional n the resemblance to any person living or dead is truly intentional. Even though I have not mentioned names, I'm sure they know who they are.

If you guys are wondering why I havent spoken about the first kind then visit I thank my co-author, n my beloved stalkers for motivating me to write this. N btw the perfect poem I found for this blog, dedicated to all the stalkers in the world.

A pest msgd me today,
He emailed me too,
He asked if I were single,
and asked, how do you do?

He asked all kinds of questions,
wanted all the details,
of my very private life,
demanded that I tell,

Age, sex and location,
he insisted that I share,
along with exact sizes,
of my shoes and clothes I wear,

I politely said no,
refused all his requests,I
told him very sternly,
Stop this, don't be a pest,

His msg kept on poppin up,
he asked if I were wed,
by then I was quite annoyed,
by all the things he'd said,

I asked him which part of NO,
he didn't understand,
I told him I was 85,
and wore 6 wedding bands,

but all my husbands now were gone,
and I had all their money,
you want to know about,
their accidents now, honey?

I told him I fart when I walk,
the hair's gone from my head,
I keep my teeth in a jar,
at night I wet the bed,

Sometimes I wander naked,
till somebody brings me home,
you wanna get together,
so I won't be all alone?

Suddenly the msgs's stopped
so I wrote him an mail,
a little sign then popped up
that said he was offline,

I giggled and I guffawed,
I chuckled and I laughed,
I doubt it seriously,
if my stalker will come back...

Archer - The True master

Once I started working, I had absolutely no time to keep up my favourite activity... Reading. I was an avid reader with a huge collection of books stacked up at home. Dad has actually built two shelves just for accommodating my books. Right from Mills n Boon, Sidney Sheldon, Dan Brown to Jeffery Archer, Danielle Steele, Mario Puzo, Ayn Rand, Thomas Harris, Robin Cook n many more. As a teen, I was so fascinated by Sheldon that at times i would sit up all night trying to finish a book. 'Tell me your dreams' was the first book I ever read. It was then that I started looking up to Sheldon n read all his books. My most favourite book of all times until 'Kane & Abel' came along was 'The Godfather' by Mario Puzo. Man, thats the most fascinating book I've ever read and my most favourite character till date. This is the only book that I have read more than twice. Yeah, I tend to read the same books again and again if I feel like :).

I've had 'The Prodigal Daughter' and 'Not a penny more, Not a penny less' by Archer neatly stacked up in my shelf for quite a while. I dont recall buying them, probably my sis did. Initially I had tried reading 'As the Crow flies' by Archer. That was the second book which successfully put me to sleep. The first one being 'The Enchantress of Florence' by Salman Rushdie. That book.... well I dont want to talk about it. It sucked BIGGG time. As the crow flies was not so bad, but it wasnt that good either. After a few chapters, it lies safely at my shelf.

When a friend suggested that I try Kane & Abel, I was least interested. But when I knew that it was a prequel to The Prodigal Daughter, I thought trying it wouldnt be such a bad idea since I'm almost jobless now :P. Well it turns out that its the best book I've ever read until now. I just finished it n I'm so glad that I came across it. I just cant wait to get back n get started with the sequel. Kane & Abel is an amazing book with well etched characters. The book tells the stories of two men born worlds apart. They have nothing in common except the same date of birth (April 18, 1906) and a zeal to succeed in life. William Lowell Kane is a wealthy and powerful Boston Banker while Abel Rosnovski is a Pole born into desperate poverty who eventually emigrates to the United States. How their life entangles, n their hatred for each other forms the rest of the plot.

It seems like I have a thing for books with male protagonists :). I enjoy them the most. Be it this one, The Godfather, The Fountainhead, Red Dragon.... these are my all time favourites. I'm just too thrilled by the latest one I've read n I'm soon going on a shopping spree for all Jeffery Archer books. God Bless him!!

If a dog were your teacher

If a dog were your teacher

These are some of the lessons you might learn...

When loved ones come home, always run to greet them
Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joyride
Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to be pure ecstasy

When it's in your best interest practice obedience
Let others know when they've invaded your territory
Take naps and stretch before rising
Run romp and play daily

Thrive on attention and let people touch you
Avoid biting, when a simple growl will do
On warm days stop to lie on your back on the grass
On hot days drink lots of water and lay under a shady tree

When you're happy dance around and wag your entire body
No matter how often you're scolded
Don't buy into the guilt thing and pout
Run right back and make friends

Delight in the simple joy of a long walk
Eat with gusto and enthusiasm
Stop when you have had enough
Be loyal... Never pretend to be something you're not

If what you want lies buried
Dig until you find it
When someone is having a bad daybe silent ........sit close by.
...and nuzzle them gently.

Breakfree :-)

I'm at work with nothing to do. The rest of the guys have to finish something before I start my work. So until they are done, I'm Freeeeeeeee!! But whats the point? All my friends are busy with their work. So half the time I'm sitting gazing at my laptop wondering what to do. Sitting idle makes me hungry, so I tend to eat something every half n hour. Thank God I'm blessed with a very high metabolism rate. Else I'll be in a custom made cubicle by now :P. But I love coming to office. Why? The lunch breaks obviously :). Probably I'm the only techie who takes a lunch break of a minimum 2 hours. Well I'm not the only one. I have company. Be it a friend or an "uncle", its always fun to sit by the water side n talk away to glory.

My office place is like heaven. The outside campus I mean. Its studded with greenery. The weather is so lovely now that all I want to do is roam around the campus. The water spots are so serene that you wont realise how long you have actually been there. With strange berries around to experiment, an annoying friend forcing me to eat them n countless topics to discuss, Life seems great. When the workload was high, I used to crave for such breaks. N now life seems to be a very long break n I can have all the free breaks I need. I'm not complaining but as far my miniature experience is considered, the more leisure now, the more you'll have to slog later.

Office is like a perfect internet hub for free. Work n download music side by side. Nahhhh..... Does'nt work for me. When I'm working, my entire concentration is on it. Pretty dedicated I am :). But when I'm out, I just love to unwind n get office out of my mind. Even if it is a 15 min coffee break. Living life to the fullest n taking life as it comes is what I believe in. Well I'm hungry again, so off I go :D.

A Little Extra

Have you ever wondered why are we never happy or completely satisfied with what we have. Its the case always is'nt it? Well look at me. When I was bombarded with work at office, all I could do was to pray for some spare time. Now, I'm so free that I'm waiting for some work to kill time. Yeah Yeah I can always browse net, chat, or blog to pass time. But these things too get boring after sometime. When I return home after spending half a months salary in shopping, I always feel that probably I should have bought this top in the other colour. Or that I should have picked up the cute little skirt as well. Guilty as charged! I'm never completely satisfied with whatever I have. I usually get bored of stuff very easily. Stuff not people! Well, I would'nt mind getting bored of some people though :P. If I like someone, or if I feel an immediate connection with someone I tend to stay with them for the rest of my life. I'm very proud to say that I'm still in very good terms with most of my school and college friends, including my nursery friends. I lead an almost perfect life, but the fact that its not totally perfect troubles me. I have the best of things around me, great parents, a very sweet sister, amazing friends who will stand by me no matter what, and all the luxuries that I possibly require. But still there is something missing. I need someone or something in my life to perk it up.

Hey! I'm sure I'm not the only one who feels like this. I have yet to meet a person who is completely happy with the life he/she leads. Probably we are made this way. As my philosophical friend says, nothing can make a person totally happy. Check out the below ad.
See everyone needs something better than what they have. Probably thats the drive which keeps us going.

Raincoat- Love Quote

After a long time I decided to watch a bollywood flick. Having heard the wonderful review of the not so new movie "Raincoat" from my best critic/friend Mr.A, I decided to watch it. Honestly watching a complete Aishwarya Rai movie is just not my cup of tea ( in my case Coffee!! ). She's drop dead gorgeous alright. But whats with the over acting I dont understand. But she proved me wrong here. She simply rocked here with her simple bored housewife act. Ajay Devgan is one hell of a underrated actor. He can pull off such demure, sober acts with such elan n perfection. His act of the lover in desperate need of love from his wife, as in "Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam", touched my heart. Here he again plays a loser in need of money n love. The chemistry between both the lead actors is simply amazing. Kinda funny to see that someone can lie so much just to hide their wrecked life from their ex. She excelled at it. Her reason for not flying is so silly, yet its adorable the way she says it. The significance of the weird title is superbly shown in the climax. Rituparno Ghosh has weaved a beautiful love story here. Probably one of the best I've ever seen. The movie warmed my heart n soul n Aishwarya earned my respect with this. Although I was not in tears after the movie ( unlike some people ), I thoroughly loved it. Those who havent seen it yet, please do.

What makes you...............

What makes you love me so much?
Do you feel so much I deserve,
No matter what, I'm thankful for it
This is something, I truely shall preserve.

What makes you care for me so much?
That without you I feel so lost
It makes me realise how wonderful you are
N I cant lose you at any cost.

What makes you keep me so happy?
That life seems so beautiful when I'm with you
You love me in such a special way,
I see your eyes n I can feel its true.

What makes you think about me so much?
That you always want me by your side
So do I, today n forever,
This is onething I shall always abide.

What makes you want me so much?
That I feel so lucky to be the one
I know that you are the one for me,
N with you my life is perfectly done.
