187. 2009 - You suck it bitch!!!

Dear 2009,

I just don't know why am I writing this.You've been such a pain in ass for me.During this long year ,I've lost many things.After a blissful 2008 and a painful 2007 ,I banked on you to bring happiness in my life.I thought you would not be another year and I would cherish every moment that I live in this year. I don't give a bloody damn to you. Since you have hurt me. Firstly I have lost my very own close friends. People who once used to be my good friends disappeared and now they don't wish to be friends with me. I won't curse you since its your time to go.I have wasted all my time in just waiting for something which would change my life. Well it did happen and one day the good news arrived .But Alas! it was late.
Nevertheless you have been kind at times. The birth of my little nephew on 28th March was one of the best moment of this year. You have showered less happiness upon me.Firstly ,everything was against me when I felt I would be at the top. Eventually I landed up in some strange place struggling to get up.I wish I would soar high and attain success.But I was wrong. Recession had still its impact in India and our joining was delayed by 6 months. I didn't make any resolutions just because I fear I will not go by it.I fear for all damn thing in this world. I lost my good friends.Never mind but you know how much they mean to me.It just takes a word to break bonds and relationship.But why such thing happened to me? Why me? .You know how much I miss them.They would be close to me.Just close to me . 2007 was another miserable year just like you.But the amount of pain I suffered then was nothing before you.I was pneumonia struck with broken limb. My studies got hampered so did my happiness. I failed to realize the worth of my life.I just believed that my life was just over for me. But thanks to some one special .I have some one to stand by my side in difficulties, to give me a tight hug and say " Hey Stibumama, I'm here!" . That was the blissful event that happened to me in 2007.2008 was full of fun and happiness in my family.Sisters project in Milan,my campus placement,birth of my niece were few of those things that happened in my life in 2008. 2009 was painful to me and my family.Relationship would break just because of small reasons.I never knew the impact it would create would actually create problems in family.I made really some good friends this year. I would like to thanks Sreya - partner in crime, Vidhu -mot, Karthik,Shruti,Esther Evelyn,Sowmiya and Neha S - circuit.These guys are my wonderful friends. I met some one interesting this year. A girl who did made me smile at times and equally hurt me each time.I never knew people here hated me. She was some one whom I liked. The unusual kind of friendship approach and status messages were different.I thought that I she was more than a friend to me. But she wasn't.Why do you befriend some one if you don't want to? Hurting others is really bad.After last nights chat I lost the respect I had for her.Sorry I considered her as a friend and now I regret for her friendship.It was humiliating for me. The way she treated me at 1 am was an insult for me. Never in my life I would talk to her.I am feeble and feeling low at this time.I regret calling her last night.I don't wish to see her again in my life.

I just wish that 2010 will be a better year to every one of us.
Thanks for messing my life,
~Solitary Writer~

PS:A Very Happy new year to all my dear friends in blog ville and to all my readers ,followers and fans.I love each one of you.Thanks a lot .A happy new year to you and your family

180. Rajni makes everything possible - 3

'Rajnikanth' the name itself is enough. You may have seen him make you cry,smile and laugh with his funny gestures and acts.I would love to say that this evergreen superstar has impressed me with his acts.I can proudly say that he is my favourite actor.The talent this guy possess is appreciable and its significant to say that this guy actually rocks.I actually wrote this post because there is some reason behind this.Our superstar is celebrating his 60th birthday today.He is old but who cares until he is entertaining people. People in TN are crazy behind him.They are big Rajni freaks.
'Rajnism' is the term which is associated with absurdity in most cases.He makes things possible.I have written 2 posts about our great superstar.But I've made mockery of him in those two posts. But I can assure you that this post will see something similar. Let me tell you some historical facts and few things about this great person. Rajni unlike other actors was not rich and ambitious.He was born in a poor farmers family and there was a time when the family struggled for its basic requirements such as food and all. He was struggling during his initial phases of life. He came to Bangalore with few dreams.Before that he worked a carpenter and later switched on to work as a coolie. Despite of suffering various backdrops in life he never gave up.Its his confidence and courage which stood front.He served as a conductor for public buses in Bangalore.Life was miserable until he met Balachander.He was the first to introduce him in a movie and the movie was blockbuster hit.He started his career as villain,anti hero and supporting actor.Later on he turned into a full fledged actor and would produce blockbuster hits.Even today his movies would surpass his previous records.People in TN praise him like almighty and he is no less that god to them. The one thing I like about this Superstar is that although he may be rich and famous today, he is simple.He likes the way he is. 'Simplicity' is something which is one of this character.We get to learn a lot from him.He is the evergreen superstar and I'm glad that I am one of his fan.Once again I would like to wish him a very happy birthday.May he live long and god may shower all his blessings upon him.I'm sure he will act as a hero during his 80's and we all will enjoy it for sure. Thanks a lot O Super star for entertaining us for these 25 years and taking tamil cinema to great heights.Happy birthday to Yuvraj Singh as well and Wishes to Pooja Chopra who is representing India at the beauty contest.

Umm!! so enough of Rajni praises .Now its time for some fun.Continuing from my previous two posts.
1.Outer space exists because its afraid to be on the planet where Rajnikant lives.
2.Rajnikant has counted to infinity twice.
3.When Rajnikant does push ups ,he isn't lifting himself up ,he is instead pushing earth down.
4.Rajnikant is so fast,he can run around the world and push himself in the back of the head.
5.Rajnikant never wears watch,he decides what time it is.
6.Rajnikant gave mona lisa that smile.
7.Rajnikant can slam a revolving door.
8.Rajnikant's house has no doors, only walls that he walks through.
9. Rajnikant grinds the coffee with his teeth and boils the water with his own rage.
10.If you Google search " Rajnikant getting kicked",it generates 0 results as it doesn't happens.
11The Bermuda triangle used to be Bermuda square until he kicked off one of the corners.
12.The only thing that runs faster and longer than Rajnikant are is his films.
13.Where there is a will ,there is a way.Where there is Rajnikanth ,there is no way
14.When Rajnikanth falls in water, Rajnikanth doesn't get wet. Water gets Rajnikanth
15.A picture is worth a thousand words. A Rajni is worth 1 billion words.
16.Newton's Third Law is wrong: Although it states that for each action, there is an equal and opposite reaction, there is no force equal in reaction to a Rajni kick.
17. Rajni can divide by 0
18. Rajni can run faster than the speed of light.He can beat Usain Bolt any where.
19.Rajni invented black. In fact, he invented the entire spectrum of visible light.
20.Rajnikanth can drink an entire gallon of milk in thirty-seven seconds.
21.It takes Rajnikanth 20 minutes to watch 60 Minutes.
22.Simply by pulling on both ends,Rajnikanth can stretch diamonds back into coal.
23.Rajni can play cricket with a football
24.Rajni is expected to win gold in every swimming competition at the 2010 Common wealth games , even though he does not swim. This is because when Rajni enters the water, the water gets out of his way and he simply walks across the pool floor.
25. A study showed the leading causes of death in the India are: 1. Heart disease, 2. Rajnikanth, 3. Aids
26. Rajni can actually walk,sleep and eat English. God knows how? :P
27.Rajni can judge a book by its cover.
28.Nothing can escape the gravity of a black hole, except for Rajnikanth. He eats black holes. They taste like chicken.
29.Rajnikanth uses a night light. Not because he is afraid of the dark, but the dark is afraid of Chuck Norris.
30. Although Rajni is afraid of snakes, but snakes are his best friends too.He uses snakes instead pf his skipping ropes.
31.Rajni once kicked a horse in the chin. Its decendants are known today as Giraffes.
32.Sticks and stones may break your bones, but a Rajni glare will liquefy your kidneys.
33. When Rajni plays Monopoly, it affects the actual world economy.
34.Rajni successfully seperated twins conjoined at the head by roundkicking them in the face.
35.Rajni does not know about this Blaag. If he did he would have just deleted the internet.
36.Blogger Bandeep Salan and Rajni have one thing in common. Both are known for their craziness although the latter is better than the former.
37.People can tickle your funny bone.But Rajni breaks it.

So enough of Rajni jokes. Have fun guys! I hope you had a great time reading all this .Do write your favourite one?And once again lets sing a Happy birthday song to our great superstar.

"Happy Birthday O dear SuperStar!"

178. A confusing dream or a Nightmare !! :-o

Dreams are a part of our life.Scientists believe that one portion of your brain is reserved for interpreting old memories.It is this portion of your brain which is responsible for something called dreams. It has to do with phsychological state of the person.Trust me some times there are cases where dreams may scare you up. Last night or early morning to be precise I dreamnt something .I am not sure how could a certain group of things arrive at that particular point of time in my dream.It was like watching a feature film where you play a lead protagonist. I felt the same until some group of school kids woke me up at sharp 5.28 am. It was a different thing apart from snakes,ghosts,lizards etc.So I still remember it. So I am going to write about the end I will ask you something and I expect a reply from all you guys out here.
I don't know how we people are closely attached to each other.I could feel a train and would recollect that it was a train journey where we 4 people travelled all the way to Hyderabad to attend my friends function. I knew these four people very well and an amazing part is that we four are geographically distributed in 4 corners of South India.The girl was from Hyderabad ,me and my other friend from Mumbai and the other friend from Bangalore. It follows a strange scenario where we all board the train one by one at different consecutive stations.I still don't know what these guys were doing in Mumbai.Finally we meet each other and sit on our respective seats. I was sittling along with the girl and in front of us my other two friends were sitting.
As usual we spoke lots of interesting things, about India,blogging,movies etc.At one point of time, the train stopped some where near a river in Karnataka.The girl who happened to be my friend had disappeared and my other two friends were sleeping.The train was not moving and due to some engine failure the train won't move for the next 2 hour or so.I peeped out of the window and was shocked to see too many people taking bath in the river.Most of them were naked and I was stunned. As I scanned through the place,I could see my friend washing her clothes.Even she was completely naked.I stared at her for a while and was speechless.I woke my friend from Bangalore and asked him to look at her and asked if whats wrong with these people.He was in half sleep when I woke him up.He saw and slept again.Finally the train started moving.My friend came back. The train was almost empty and we 4 were left alone in the whole bogie.My other two male friends decided to go out to the canteen.They asked both of us to stay together and said that they would return in a while.We waited for around 4 hours but they didn't return back.The train was now empty and we two were present in that bogie.The female friend of mine had told me that she would return in a while after taking a wash. As promised she returned.The train again halted at some unknown place where a school was located.My friend had to change her dress.She was semi naked.I stood aside the train door.
'I guess I would close my eyes,' I said to her.
'Umm,better you do it dude,' She said to me and changed her clothes.
As my eyes were closed I could feel she was staring at me.Even I was staring at her.A group of naughty kids were passing derogatory comments about my friend who was changing her clothes.I had my bag with me which had important documents like passport,driving license etc.They pulled my bag down as I shoed them away.
I left the train to get my bag and I saw that the train had left.My friend was calling me and was sounding frustrated.My other two friends vanished away and I was stranded alone some where in a jungle helplessly looking at the train and my friend.
And suddenly at 5.28 am I got up.

Ok now I could not interpret any thing from this.How on earth would I get to meet people who are just my net friends and I haven't even met them.Is it because that we share something common or anything.The entire scenario reminds me of a suspense thriller movie.I failed to understand why the train stopped and who could be those group of brats who pulled me down from the train, why my female friend was washing her clothese revealing everything near the river and why my male friends suddenly disappeared?.Everything was a tragedy.Now its your turn to say what do you get from this?You know this is the first time I woke up early at 5.28 am in 12 months .

177.All in a days work

177.All in a days work

"This post has been published by me as a part of the Blog-a-Ton 5; the fifth edition of the online marathon of Bloggers; where we decide and we write. To be part of the next edition, visit and start following Blog-a-Ton."
"Don't live down to expectations. Go out there and do something remarkable."
This is one of the most inspiring statement made by famous American Playwright Wendy Waserstein. Just think over it again,do you derive something out of it?.Well to be honest we have many expectations in life. As life progresses ,our expectations increase.Live every moment of your life as it comes.Cherish it to the core. If life is a roller coaster ride,then I would prefer riding on it for the whole day.I would like to bring back the most active ,creative and entertaining period of my life. We entered the University with dreams and ambitions. We expected a lot but things changed when we made an exit. More ambitious we were during those tender young teen age.We planned to do remarkable and wonderful things in our life. We wished to paint our memories in those beautiful dust clad walls of our Alma mater.Mischeif mongers is what people called us during those days. What do you think?.If Wendy's statement was a theorem,then we had the capability to prove it wrong. We were Engineers, we are Engineers.
Let me take you to the beautiful mischievous Engineering days where we wished there were more than 365 days in a year. Permit me to paint your soul with my good old Engineering days. When I learnt that most of the blog a tonics suggested this topic for B-O-T 5 ,I was actually surprised and amazed. "What an Idea ,Sirjee!!" was my first reaction. I would prefer writing a book on this topic,but I want to limit this post to some 500- 600 odd words if time permits me.Engineering days were on of the most memorable period of my life.I remember many eventful things happening in my life. By event ,I mean the disgraceful and unfortunate events that happened during my college days . My college day is not less than any feature film. Let me describe the submission day,where we take utmost risk standing at gunpoint . It was the day when I was bombarded with too many gifts for being a mischief monger. Those were the best gifts that Engineering professors could ever give me on the last day of Semester 5. It was a normal usual day . Early morning in winters are terribly cold . The cloud would be fog cladden reducing visibility.It becomes lazy to get up early morning. For some obvious reasons I forgot to get a note of my 'Red letter day' ie Submissions . Thanks to the Manchester United - Manchester City Derby match the previous night. Being a red devil supporter has often got me into troubles. I got ready with my college sack ( I won't call it a bag,a headache it was ).I went to my college flaunting my Man United jersey with my name 'Anii' written behind in bold letters showing number 33,my life number. Same daily routine of boarding the over crowded train which was filled with testosterone charged men would often turn me off. Whenever a girl entered the boggie ,all wicked eyes would change its focus of attention towards her. Such sicko attitude these guys possessed.Other chunk of boggie contained people who don't brush their teeth regularly. Thanks to the bright yellow teeth exhibition.Mumbai local train commuters have always been a good exhibitionist and they are good at such things .I've been a good observer and even today I've been observing things. I planned to enter my class with a slight hope of getting an entry. Our class would always be imbued with talented girls and yes some are beautiful too.

"Go away Anii," the girl sitting on the first bench whispered. I learnt the signal and left for our 'adda'. Our college canteen used to be our adda.We've spend most of our time sight seeing & bird watching in our college.Some guys would try to impress the junior girls and some would try flaunting their talents and skills. The corner of the canteen was reserved for our gang.It was located to right of the door.It is the place where we learnt the art of translating our sorrows into happiness. Wondering what kind of sorrows, yes I am talking about the teachers constant bombardment of assignments and projects.Canteen is the place where we converted the sorrows of writing assignments into an entertaining ,melodramatic and rather fun oriented writing session. I had my gang desperately waiting for me. They welcomed me as usual in front of all the beautiful girls. We had a Vending machine in our college canteen.We have to insert notes and coins to get the desired product. I was given 50 Rs by a good friend and was asked to get few items.I did as per the orders before we started the 'Voh meri - voh teri' game which used to be our daily routine.I inserted the 50Rs note in the machine and guess what it made my day.It gave few items along with a 500 Rs note. Thank god the operator wasn't standing nearby. Later on we started the game. The girl who enters the canteen will be the guys date. Practically its the person who enters the canteen who could be a teacher,girl,boy,canteen boy and so on.This would follow the sequence.My good friend got the canteen mama as usual and as usual we used to taunt him by calling his name. For the first time in life, I got a beautiful girl who was associated with me in this dumb testosterone charged bloody stupid game. I actually preferred refraining from such obnoxious activities,but couldn't just remain numb most of the time. Ogling at girls is really bad and a big sin as per the holy bible.God Forbid! Later on we completed our journals.Our journals were incomplete and we had a big task ofcompleting it.Nishi gave us an exciting news of we being featured into the 4th defaulters list. It was expected but not at that particular moment. I had to hobble because of the sprain on my ankle. I was rather unhappy with the statistics. I failed to break my previous attendance record.I had registered my second lowest attendance of 11 % ,8 % being my Engineering lowest. We were wanted by our HOD. We were persistently asked the reasons for not attending lectures.We had to listen our HOD's lecture the umpteenth time.But we do respect and honour him. It was an embarrassing moment of my life and only then we realized how shameless we were when we gave him an innocent 'bachhoo' smile. They were planning to call our parents which suddenly changed the state of our mind.Our smiles changed into frown.He told that he will take punitive actions but the matter was settled as we were asked to solve 5 years University papers of each subject.Our submissions were discarded and our works were not accepted. We 17, sat till 8 pm and completed a set of around 35 papers along with the pending assignments and journal work.It was like giving your neck to someone and get it strangled.We invited the problems and we regretted for the same.We deserved it,but it was only a practice session for us.We left for our home with swollen fingers resulting from too much of writing work. Tendons in our muscle would not budge.Disgraceful and unfortunate things happened in my life in that sem which reflected on my semester marks and term works. I failed to realize that I had my Campus placement sessions next semester. It was a fiasco of my engineering days where I learnt a good lesson.It was a normal day ,a fruitless day for sure but a day which we could never forget. We did everything on our S day.After all it was all in a days work.Life is a collection of memories.If life were a paper we could have had a photocopy of it.But alas! it isn't ,only such memories brings a smile to your face when something reminds you of those episode.It may be sad ,may be bad.It was just another day in my life which changed my life..

176. Mommy, I saw the 'Bogey Mon' !!!

“Vinu ,where are you, daa?,” The young mother of 23 screamed at the top of her voice.

“Oh god!!,” she was worried for some reason.

Their life changed as they shifted to Sydney. Vinu was just a baby and she had a lot to worry about. Aaina’s husband was a chartered accountant in a bank in Australia.

Her heart beat rapidly as her eyes failed to locate her kid.

“Hello Abhi,please come home,I’m worried,” she spoke to her husband Abhijit.

Little Vinu was an adorable and a naughty boy. Her eyes scanned through all the rooms,balcony and the corridors.Aaina started sweating profusely as she could not find her baby anywhere.

She tried to fulfil all basic needs of Vinu.Vinu was her life. Vinu was just 2 yrs old and what if some one kidnapped him. Several thoughts were running through her mind. Time flew like anything . The clock struck 5 and she was weeping.

Last week Vinu wanted to meet St.Nicholas, the Santa Claus. He used to call him as ‘Bogey Mon’. Aaina and Abhi were so busy that they could not fulfil their little kid’s wish of seeing Santa Claus.

Her eyes displayed a gamut of emotions.Her cheeks were moist with tears. She started cursing herself. Aaina’s frustration mounted high as time passed. Abhi’s number was still unreachable.

The fear of losing Vinu would not let her stop crying.

“Hello,Hello!,” she was tired of calling her husband again and again.

She locked the door and tucked the key on her blouse.She started searching for Vinu admist heavy snowfalls.It was winter in Australia and the temperature outside was unbearable.Despite of such harsh weather conditions ,she did not give up She was upset. Her face was red as she came back to home.

‘Mommy!! ‘Bogey Mon’ came to our house,” Vinu hugged his mother tightly.

She heaved a sigh of relief when she saw her kid back in home. Vinu showed the gifts that Santa gave him.

“Aww Baby, you met Santa it seems,” she kissed her son on his cheeks.

“Where is your’ Bogey man’ ?,” Aaina smiled.

“He ran away,” Vinu was playing with the gifts that Santa presented him.

She called Abhi to inform him about Vinu.

At night ,she told her husband about Vinu’s sudden disappearance.

“Aainu, so any guesses about Vinu’s ‘Bogey Mon’ ? ,” Abhi winked and they cuddled.

Hmm!! first of all a big thank you to all those who text and wished me early morning.I'm really proud to have you all as my friend.This day is really special for me and I'm glad that I have you all as my friends.22 years ago life was different when I was born.I was the first boy child of my family.I was so close to all my cousins especially during my early years when I was a small baby.Since we all belonged to the 80's generation we had a age gap of 2-3 years.So then my cousins were like 3 or 4 years older to me.They loved me adored me and treated me like some doll or something.I used to be my grandpaa's pet.He used to carry me wherever he went and today I really miss him a lot.I'm sure he is an important part of my life and today I remember him because he played a major role in my life.I regret and feel sad that I was not by his side during his last few minutes of life.I love him and I badly miss him.I owe a lot to my parents and my young little sister.They constitute my life and without them my life would be void.A special thanks to Parul ,my alter ego, my best friend.Some one who can constantly bring smile on your face.She is a gift which I got from Orkut.

173. The Dark Knight!!

She locked all doors and walked out into the dark streets as usual. None of those who met her in the dark saw the ebony tears of mascara she shed each night.
But today was her day with her prince.
“I love you.”
“Love you too honey.” Her first night of love.

172. Lets talk about Sex...

Umm!!! Mmm!! Well don't expect anything steamy from this post.This post is not intended to amuse or entertain anyone.Infact I wish to speak about an important topic today.'Sex' is an essential part of life,but it is very sensitive topic. I don't think anyone would be comfortable enough to open up with this topic.Covering a sensitive topic in a different way is extremely difficult. How often do we open up this topic to our parents? It is an important topic to be discussed with growing kids.This won't inspire them in a bad way rather it would help them in understanding things.Kids getting inspired in a wrong way or the right way exclusively depends on the parents . We as adults talk about such things to our friends mostly our best friend.We share our wildest secrets with them.But we feel embarrassed when we have to discuss such things to our elders. If proper information is not given to them then they would be mislead in a wrong way and later on as a parent you'd have to repent and regret for the same.Girls find it easier to talk such sensitive and delicate issues with their moms.Mother understands her and she knows almost everything when she attains puberty.During her menarche itself a mom tells her daughter everything.But this is not the case with boys.Boys think differently.Guy chats basically exhibits the pleasure part of sex discussion.Such discussions mainly focusses on the body features and the sex organs.It is significant to discussion this topic to kids.Well there are few parents who refrain from such topics.Infact they should know that this is going to be a integral part of their childs life. These days certain schools are organizing sex education at grade 8 or 9 just for the same.Talking about touchy subject is really terrible at times and at times it can be pathetic.Teen age is an age where we fail to realize the difference between Love and Lust.Both are completely different from each other.The former may represent a kind of feeling and emotion and the latter might be a result of those feelings.Just I want to let you know that both are two different poles of a magnet.Anyway I don't want to divert the topic of discussion. Lets make it more easy by enlisting it in point form.What all points should we take into account when we discuss this to kids? and how it would impact them.
1.Open conversation:
Talking about this would certainly help in the child's development.If you are worried that it would inspire your kid in a wrong way then no issues.May be your child is clever enough and knows many things.Make the conversation open.Make your child realize the need for the discussion.It should be a lesson and not a fantasy story.So it should be conveyed in a proper manner.

2.Comforting your kid
Try to be comfortable when you talk such delicate matters to your kids.Trust me these topics are difficult to handle.Misconceptions should be handled properly.Try to make your kid while discussing.It should not  imbue a negative feeling in your kid.If you are uncomfortable then its better to stay away rather than delivering something which would drive child in a wrong way.

3.Answering in a right manner.
Any normal kid would have doubt in such topics.Its better to answer them and clear such things off.Don't feel pressured while talking such things.Don't let your child bombard you with serious questions and disappoint you.

4.Bonding relation
A parent may not always be a child's best friend.Some people teach their kids and value their relationship with them.Hence you should be having clear cut boundaries between what to discuss and what not to discuss with their kids.

5.Avoid Confrontations
Don't put your child in a fix.Don't focus on them.Take the matter lightly.Taking this matter seriously with significantly affect them.
If you have a topic in your mind then better let the listener react and respond.Instead of answering our views we could respect their views and value them.I have seen television commercials about such topic.People actually feel embarrassed while talking to their child.In an ad , a person talks about condoms and AIDS.The parent changes the TV channel instead of discussing it with the kid.When a child knows that when you are exploring a subject together ,then he/she would share their opinions with this context.

6.Befriending your child.
Try to be a good friend to your kid.This will surely benefit you in one way or the other.Only a best friend can understand his/her friend.

Well I am not here to discuss about parenting. I am still young to be called an advice maven.Its just that I like bringing out such topics.Till now we have seen how a parent should react while talking about sex to their kids.Lets talk about kids point of view.Generation gap is not a big problem if you understand your parents really well.Try to be patient with your parents.I understand that it would be strange talking about this to parents.Try to be practical and you should know that your parents would be having the same feeling that you were having at that time.Lets start with a general topic.Enlighten them with some serious topic that teens normally undergo.Know their reactions and then proceed with your problem.No parents are child's enemy.In serious words they are your support structure who supports you.If you are talking to your parents then you have to value their opinions and advices.Try talking to parents and other elders for seeking advices regarding such topics.
Here are few points which I would like to share with my readers.

1.Approaching parents.
Always approach your parents for advices.They are the best advice maven available on earth.If they are busy ,then take your time and ping them later.know their importance in your life.

2.Start with general discussion.
I got this point from a friend who is a relationship expert in a site.Instead of saying "I want to have sex with Katie" try to generalize the same."Should teenager wait till they get married to have sex?" should be a best substitute.This would give your parents reactions as well.

Listen to your parents.They would help you only if you are willing to listen and accept their advice.

4.Don't argue with them.Try to avoid a tiff with your parents.You may disagree with their decision ,but you should try to respect and value their reactions.

5.Use media such as magazine,newspaper ,television as a starter and try discussing facts with them.I'm sure this would be helpful.Let them know their reactions about certain article or cover story which talks about sensitive issues.

Well I have some strange feelings that I am actually boring my readers.Apologise me for the same.Now lets switch on to Importance of sex education.Sex education is an and should be an integral part of our curriculum.I still remember those early days of my life when we had sex education at the age of 14.We were shown the entire process of child birth.It was a real shocker at that innocent age where we were not used to be shown such things.After that our respect towards women grew a level.She has to struggle to bring her baby out in this world.We spoke about AIDS and other sexually related diseases.We were given insight about the ill effects of going into a wrong path and importance of life.I wish to tell that try to be sexually healthy but it doesn't means that you play around carelessly.Sex education surely would try to freed one from the ill effects of porn and other misadventures :P .Try to use protection and other necessary measures while indulging into any intimate activities with your partner.Talk to your elders about sex and listen to them.If you don't listen to them then I am sure you are missing something.Enough of research,advices and lectures.I wish to see you back with some different issue.And yes try to learn the importance of your life and value it. Any way thanks a lot for your wonderful reactions about my previous story.The protagonist was none other than my childhood friend whom I know since class 3.I am not happy with this post as somehow I feel that it lacks something.So tell me your experience? Have you ever spoken to your parents about such things?If yes then you may wish to write it here.Thanks a lot for patiently reading and God bless.

Signing out .
Love and Hugs!
Solitary writer!!!

171. Loved & Lost - 2 (end part)

This is a real Story!!!

I curiously clicked on the mail to see what was written.
"Isha Gill wants to be your friend on FaceBook," the mail read.Without any delay I logged on to my facebook account and accepted her friend request.We exchanged our numbers and we met at the same pub where we used to party few years ago
"Hi Ronnie," she greeted me.
Isha was still the same beautiful girl with those seraphic smile. She was smart and she seemed to have matured.The way she spoke and behaved was somewhat unusual and strange.
"Hey Isha! after a long time girl," I replied.
"Where is Aneesh?," I anxiously asked her.
"Hmm! we broke up dude," she said with a sad face.
"What?When it happened?" I was perplexed.
"It happened the same daywhen you guys fought.You must be knowing that I took your side," She said with a straight face.

"Yes,I do remember," I said.
"He somewhat felt bad and spoke malicious words about both of us," she cried.
"He linked both of us and this was why we broke up," She said.

"Its 2 years now since I last met him," she added.
"Oh! I'm really sorry," I said.
"You don't need to be," she said.
"May be he didn't deserve me," she winked.

We spoke for hours and I'd my friend back.I wished to hold her tight and never let her go away from me.She was doing her Engineering from a famous Engineering College in Mumbai.We started hanging out together.We used to go for movies just like normal couples. We used to roam across Bandstand and Marine Drive.We would go everywhere.Later on she introduced me to her parents.Two years passed and we become best friends.It was only then I realized that it was the time for me to confess my love for her.

"Isha," I said.
"I think I am in love with you," my voice started trembling.
We remained silent for a while.
"Will you give me some time to think," she paused.
After that we never met frequently. The last time I met her was at the Mumbai Airport.She was leaving for US to pursue her MS from the Univ of Illianois.Months passed and again I started missing her.I used to call her most of the time.Few weeks hence I tried calling her.
But she refused to pick up the phone. I constantly tried dialling her number.
"Hey Isha babe..," I greeted her.
"I'm still waiting for your reply," I added.
"Ronnie, I'm busy at the moment ,will call you later," she said and cut the phone.
I failed to understand the reason why she was trying to ignore me.Later on when I logged onto my facebook ,I got the biggest shock of my life.

"Isha Gill is in a relationship with Sandeep Arvindan," her facebook status read.

I could see photos of Isha kissing a guy.I was shattered and broken as soon as I saw those photos.I felt dejected and depressed. I soon realized that she had ruined my life.I didn't want to see her again in my life and at the same time my phone rang.
"Isha sweetheart calling..."My cellphone rang.
I switched off my phone and left the place. I took french leave from my office and left for Amritsar.I left Mumbai once and forever.

170. Of Hmm,Umm,Mmm & Aww's

Well ,I am still alright .I sometimes fail to understand why people especially girls use these kind of chat lingo's.Some say its a kind of obsession. But this can be fun at times you want to avoid someone. 'k' would work in such cases. 'Hmm' would do good when some one is irritating you or may be when someone is telling you something or may be complimenting you. 'Ummm!' and 'Mmm' can be used in different contexts. They are very much related to each other. I get pissed off when people use such fillers to express their emotions.I guess messengers have smileys for the same. May be some hate it and they stick to this new chat lingo. Now experts have started with their research work. Let they do their survey ,but before that I thought of conducting a survey. Hmm!! so it would be rather insane to ask any random people. I decided to query few of my blogger buddies and my other friends I have around 47 interesting souls of which most of them have a common reply.
First I decided to catch some female bloggers.
So, here is the much awaited question of the year.
Q.) Why do people use words like Hmm,Mmm and Umm during chats? and here are the reactions.

(Soli speaks -> don't study too much )

15.Sona di: acknowledging, there are listening..agreeing.. i suppose.
(Soli speaks -> dii can't be wrong )

(Soli speaks -> ok think and lemme know soon )

33.Saim: Vocab Deficiency:P
(Soli speaks -> exactly )

34.Pankhuri: hahahahahahaahah :D Because this is sumthng that the guys will never understand :D iska yeh matlab hua ki ladkey budhu hotey hain aur unhey kuch samaj nahi aata :D Naa comment aur naa hi taunt :D :P
(Soli speaks -> you are a devil )

35.Shruti Nair: did someone say indirect attack.. dhuuu!
(Soli speaks -> ding dong! come back from Jupiter and do say my hi to Akansha and StepMan )

36.Mayank: i use em when i dont kno wat to say
(Soli speaks -> thats like a dude ..short and sweet )

37.Meow: if there is nothing to talk.. they say hmm.. if they are uninterested they say hmm..if they are tired and lazy to reply they say hmm.. and it depends on the person to whom we are chatting too..if we are chatting with some stalker we say hmm we say hmm to show our uninterestedness ..if we chat with a person who gives juicy gossips.. "mmm" means we are keenly listening rather reading the gossips which they give if its the bf/gf... mmm has different meaning
(Soli speaks -> Nice reply sister )

44.Esther: "mmmkay" is something that doesn't annoy me.. Umm is something when someone is thinking... like "Umm I guess so".. or something like that..the weird thing is when people use HMMMM ..thats when they run out of topics that they start saying hmm for everything grr
(Soli speaks -> i never asked 'Mmmkay' ..any way thanks for enlightening us )

45.Meera: To be more expressive. :D:D hows that?Either they are in the process of thinking. And sitting on the other end u don know what they are doing right? whether they are on or not and stuff like they use it.Or they may use it as something betw yes and no.when they are doubtful.They may also use it in place of some expression since u cannot see each other's face.You know,it keeps ppl connected.They may also use it in place of some expression since u cannot see each other's face.You know,it keeps ppl connected.They may also use it when there is nothing else left to say.Like they are bored,busy,or want to end it.
(Soli speaks -> I am like 'Woww' )

46.Monique: hahaha xD oh my.. hmmm ahhaha i have no idea
(Soli speaks ->I bet you were not like this before are you still in Brazil ?)

48:Rohini:to let others know that they are lost in the desert of thoughts:)
(Soli speaks -> beautiful answer )

49.Sridhar: aww is used by girls i havent seen a guy do that hmm,umm and mm sound the same to me ..i use hmm when i am either thinking on what he said or agreeing with him like we would say when we speak face to face
(Soli says -> now this is brilliant )

50.Fahi:to express their reaction/response
(Soli says -> guessed it )

Well most of them had something in common.Some said that its used for listening while some say its used to express their reactions.But this is different and I can say that these chat lingo's are going to replace normal words. Where is this leading to?
