An Old Crush

Well today I was just roaming around the city and was there at this Reebok Store near my place. It was around evening and I was alone looking at some stuff I probably would buy after some time. So it was this usual thing in there, just hanging out, checking out chicks, trying out some new T-Shirts etc. Everything was just about normal, when suddenly I came near to the Shoe section and now what these guys have done is pretty cool, they instead of placing the shoes next to the wall(which is in fact very common) have actually placed the shoes at the center. It's like a big transparent wall kind of thing at the center, placed diagonally leaving enough space to roam around the store. Now this wall kinda thing is not very wide, just a thin separation and since it's transparent you can actually see who's there on the next side. And they have instead of placing just a shoe of the same model have placed both of them, one on this side of the transparent wall and the other on the other side. It basically means that now two people can check out the same pair by being on the opposite sides. Sounds cool huh?, there's more, they have added some blue lights which fall on the shoes placed above vertically. Now the only problem here is that some of the placement holders for shoes are very high. So, if you are not 6'2" and want to try out the shoe placed right above, which you can't reach by yourself even after you try standing on your toes, you probably need to call the attendants who very politely take out a long rod and use it to bring the shoe down. Well the store is nice, but that's hardly the point.

Now am here checking out some of the shoes, and then suddenly I notice this female from the corner of my right eye trying to check me out. I am like there with my usual self, straight face trying to look busy with the shoes, I even ask the Sales Boy price of the particular shoe which I was holding in my hand and it had a price tag attached to it.(I know, what a jerk I sometimes can be). But anyways so as soon as she moves to the Ladies Section I start checking her out. Well she was wearing Blue denim jeans with a yellow T-Shirt, white pair of Nike Shoes. She was indeed Hot, had this perfect ass I hadn't seen in a long time, fairly long pair of legs, Nice curves and hair which were of the medium length. A bit blondish but they were really nice.

What I did was I moved on to the other side of the transparent wall which was just opposite to the Ladies Section, I could see her and behave as if am checking the shoe if she turned my side. She was trying some yellow Cardigan something, or whatever it is called. Then all of a sudden I see this lady, white face, a bit old. And I am like what the fuck!

I quickly turn back to the girl and look at her face, Oh My God, how could I not recognize her. I suddenly feel something nice about myself. I had this huge crush on this girl, about an year back or something. I never really confronted it to her or anything but just saw her around the building most of the times. She had this dog and I used to watch her generally in the mornings or in the evenings when she used to take her dog out. Now since am not that big an animal lover. I don't hate pets but prefer them better at the zoos. The dog was kinda big, white in colour and was harmless most of the times. Now this girl was a bit elder to me, around a two years or so. Well she used to stay on the 8th floor. Her dad was kinda jolly fellow, he looked carefree, teaching his dog new tricks, and most of the times having a good time. It actually bothers me now when am typing this out, I actually recognized this girl because I remembered her mother's face? (I mean seriously..)

Now you might be wondering that if we both used to live in the same building why I actually didn't ask her out. Probably because she was a bit older to me. We didn't have anything in common, to discuss, yeah not even any mutual friends I could think of who could introduce me to her. Also, there are some times when you just don't do anything. I thought may be it's just a Crush, like one of those which I had in the past. Like those school-crushes where I had this huge crush on a teacher, and then I had this crush on my friend's sister who by the way was in Class XII when I was in Class VI. Nothing worked out that time, so I took this for granted believing it's just a crush. (Ya know?)

But today standing there, I thought may be I should go to her and try introducing my self. I could ask her if she remembered seeing my face somewhere, remember she was also checking me out sometime back (Or were they just those pink sandals, I just hope it was me :)). But I just resisted myself, by the time I thought Oh what the fuck!, they had left. But as destiny would have it I get to see her in the next store I visit. I was just looking here and there and considering her mom was at the billing counter, I thought I might just go to her and say Hi!. By the time I could do they had left. I just moved on with my shopping after that.

When I go out, I see her again on the streets bargaining for some book, with the local book-seller there (Is this what people call destiny?). I was a hell lot determined about it now, am just gonna go and meet her. I had this backup plan with me. It's like if nothing works out, I won't loose anything. I actually didn't have anything to loose there. But I just backed off. I was staring at the bag she had on her back. It contained a tennis racquet, with some other stuff which I obviously couldn't see as the bag was closed. I just looked at her once, and moved away, thinking if I would ever be meeting her again..

Back to Blogging after 5 months, in itself feels great. Though I never really was a regular blogger, ahh I remember the post where I had coined the term 'Random Blogger' for me. (Too lazy to link it up, sorry!)

Well, I don't know why but off late I get this feeling where in I feel very sexually charged up-excited. I can't handle this situation it's very different from what used to happen some years back when I had just entered puberty. Earlier it used to be just infatuation, but now I feel something strange, something I am not familiar with. I sometimes feel why on the fucking face of earth I still am a virgin, may be because I never had the opportunity to loose it. Off late every girl I meet seems so 'do-able', I guess my preferences have shifted.

Well what do I do when I land myself in such a sexually-excited situation, I smoke. Yes I chain smoke till the point, when my fingers start shivering as I try to get the bud closer to my lips. I then take a deep breath and sit idle looking out of the window, looking at the tall buildings outside. Thinking deep within, thinking about someone, thinking of being with someone.

For long I have wondered that do women also crave for sex, like men do. Analyse this. To sleep with someone first you need to know him/her, pamper him/her, try spending some time with hiim/her, then if the time is right sleep with him/her. When I type this out, please don't think that sex is all am interested in when I think of someone, the point what am trying to make here is that to have sex with a women this is all what we men have to do.
Now since there are some of us who at a certain point(Not Always) just crave for sex, and there must be some women who also feel the same. Why does it look vulgar when a guy approaches a woman with the sole intention of sleeping with her. Why can't women understand this. Even if you try raising this point with them, then the whole debate begins. Let me write down some general points you get to hear:

Women(W): Does he think am a woman of cheap standard. Or does he think that am a sex-commodity to be used by anyone and everyone?

Men(M): Who said you are one with cheap or low standards, I am just interested in sleeping with you, what makes it cheap for you?

Women generally get a feeling of triumph when they see a man trying his level best by pampering, caressing them in order to sleep with them. (Am not talking in situations where love is involved and you try to build a long-term relationship with someone)
I partly agree with this fact that too sleep with someone it's his/her will if he/she likes it or not. Even if you analyze it from the fairer-sex's perspective you would agree because see it's their wish whom they sleep with or what their priorities are, or how they choose their partners.

I can't say the system is wrong, but there's something definitely wrong. Why can't I easily approach any women with the sole attention of sleeping with her. Why does the society think it's bad and cheap behaviour. Am not afraid of rejection, may be I meet someone who is also as eager and as excited as I am(at that frame of time), and doesn't mind. Why is the society so fucked up, why?

I don't think I would ever find an answer to this question. For now, I am contempt with my pack of Davidoff Lights!

Well the Presentation ceremony according to me wasn't a big deal, one of the guys actually didn't turn up for his speech.. can you believe it(?). Ben Kingsley had to read his speech, though he did turn up after the event!

Among highlights of the evening were performances by Jennifer Lopez and Jose Carreras, as well as Dulce Pontes, Chaka Khan, Alessandro Safina and Joaquín Cortés. Special guests were Neil Armstrong, Bertrand Piccard, Frederico Mayor and Cristiano Ronaldo.

That was pretty much about it, these people have even started - Check it out if you are interested in nominating one.

PS: There was no point in streaming the event live from Lisbon, Portugal on 07.07.2007 as almost all of the News channels were showing it Live.

Orkut Blog

So, finally after three years of existence Orkut comes up with a blog. Yeah as it is mentioned over there, better late than never!

You can find the Official Orkut blog here (for Brazilians) and here (for the rest of us).

There are many other blogs present on the blogosphere which are related to orkut, one of which I personally found interesting was this.

Stay Beautiful!

Since I had blogged about mGinger before, I though I might as well blog about as well - 'the indian search engine'. There is nothing much to write actually just visit this. It has an interface pretty much like google, in fact in my view it wouldn't be fair to compare a baby like Guruji to a giant Google.

I came to know about this search engine a few days back only, though it was launched pretty before, in 2006 if am not wrong. These guys have just now started a contest so as to promote their search engine. The contest is nothing great, publicity thing.. that's it! But what made me register for it was the prizes part.. trip to Singapore, Video iPods, iPod Shuffle etc. I hope I just get lucky to walk away with one of these goodies.

Anyway here's the link:

1. I have actually run out of ideas to blog.
2. Just in case you want to try out this thing mentioned above, use my referral ID.. I should get something for posting this.. right? :P

(Dis)Placement scenario in IIT - KGP

A short film shot in Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur. It's a humorous take on the Placement scenario there.
It is made By - Phoenix Productions.
Personally I found this quite Amazin', definitely worth a watch.

There are two more videos from the same Production which satire on the harassing, ragging and other such issues in colleges in a humorous way. Both of these have also been shot in IIT-KGP.

Choose your New7Wonders!

Yeah that's true, now you can choose your new 7 wonders of the world. Just log in to -
You have 21 wonders to choose from, The Pyramids of Giza, Egypt being the only exception. After careful consideration, the New7Wonders Foundation designates the Pyramids of Giza — the only remaining of the 7 Ancient Wonders of the World — as an Honorary New7Wonders Candidate.
Therefore, you cannot vote for the Pyramids of Giza as part of the New7Wonders campaign.

The votin' procedure is pretty simple just sign up and choose your 7 Wonders, alternatively you can SMS TAJ to 4567 (Am assumin' Taj Mahal would be one of your candidate when you vote). You can vote via phone too, check the website for the numbers.
You can Vote and buy Certificate too.
Vote for your favorite candidate and receive a personalized New7Wonders Certificate featuring that monument (US$2). I was initially thinkin' to buy it but dropped the idea later.

Now since it is based on people's votes, India havin' the second largest population, Taj Mahal must be selected.. but sadly that's not the case. According to some predictions Taj Mahal requires an approximate 30 Crore votes to be selected for the final 7. The Government I feel is not actively participatin' in promotin' the same.. some NGO's are tryin' but still as proposed there is no awareness amongst the people. We ought to do somethin' to make it a success(?)
All those who are interested (heck everyone should be), must vote. I personally suggest to increase chances vote once online and the next time send in an SMS :-)
Yeah it's allowed and those guys shall count it as two.

The New7Wonders of the World will be announced on 07.07.07 in Lisbon, Portugal.
So go ahead your vote counts! Help make history...

mGinger - A Revolution!

Some of you might have already heard about mGinger, Yeah the one which promises to Spice up your mobile! I recently signed up for that, I must say the initiative is pretty impressive. It was launched on 19th April 2007 and is still in a beta stage. Actually it was started by a few IITian's with the approach that we as consumers should decide which advertisements we are interested in viewin' so that our time is not wasted in viewin' unnecessary Ad's and we in turn benefit from the Ad's which we are viewing. I personally like this concept and hence have signed up for the same. This concept can be a success only if they get advertisers who would want to advertise with them.

Now the main catch lies in the fact that you would be paid to view each advertisement you receive, sounds interestin'? It goes like this:
  • Get 20 paisa for every ad you receive
  • Get 10 paisa for every ad your friends receive
  • Get 5 paisa for every ad your friend's friends receive
  • Accumulate Rs.300 & receive a cheque
That's it, I don't think there is any catch in this. Some insecurities on Privacy of Mobile numbers are always there but if you compare we have nothin' much to loose.
All you need to sign up is a Mobile number and an e-mail ID. The sign up process is simple and takes hardly five minutes. Special care must be taken while fillin' the Preference form for the Advertisements.
I request all of you to have a look at it and try and sign up for the same.

Honda Accord Ad!

Well bloggin' frequency has been very low, sometimes I just don't feel the urge to blog. It's not like I was free or something.. Exams take most of my free time. Hardly have any time left for other stuff. I was surfin' the web and found this :

The Advertisement for the new Honda Accord which was shot in real time with no CGI involved in the sequence. It required 606 takes and cost $6 million to shoot and took 3 months to complete. Amazing Ad, go have a look..

Just Click on the link below :-

PS: You require Flash Player installed and cookies enabled to view the Advertisement. Also, It might take a few minutes to download (depending on your connection speed), but It's definitely worth the wait.
