the5k.org : home page

now this is what i would call an cool idea ...after roaming around(on the web) for a couple of days on mundane professional topics like mobile content,gaming and job website oohhhh forgot to add the biggie indian matrimonial websites and all i finally got a whiff of fresh air and that too from my friend chirag patnaiks backyard !
5k is a competition where you got to submit a creative piece ( a pic, or text or whatever !) but within a 5k size limit...hmm thats quite an out of the box thinkin !.......

Drivin on to Chernobyl

Chernobyl has sort of died down as an event in recent history ...except for maybe some mention in an odd enviromental or industrial safety context....so when i cam across this interesting page about a esoteric biker who has (Re)discovered this piece of earth ...it kind of brought an odd lump of interest in my mind..and provoked a flur of interest to just randomly set on a trip to some odd part of the world...may be sphiti or somewhere in the extreme north or northeast of india....no planning ...no airline tickets....maybe something like a reinterpretation of the movie
so where was i ? huh the random trips .....dil se which happens to be one of my adoloscent fav's ...

Rocking out with chicken changezi....

Hmmm had one of my best night outs in delhi... thats about 1.5 years of my existence.
first of all got a good roomie, tito, my senior at college as well as a great guy he will be my roomate till ...
after that around 8 went over to pragati maidan for the concert.. didint have much clue ...knew that iqbal and orange street are performing ...so thought would cheer up imran .... th enviro was good the place had close to 2k people ...packed in a chilled december night...was impressed coz i didnt even expect this much from delhi....the show started off with the nu-metal band called pin drop violence (PDV)....had heard abt them in the RSJ and that they put up a good show on the GIR....so was happy to know that they will be opening the act....they sounded good.. though tthe question wether i enjoyed it remains hmmm a question coz im not that fod of thrash... so enjoyed being in a super charged crowd.... my friends shibli,tito,jay,diwakar n all...hmmm they were circumspect......what the f*&&^ ...yeh kya bakwaas hain ? can u understand what the heck the bloody sob is shouting out ? .....all and more after the break....
but just when my eyes fell on the bald lead guitarist vispy i got pissed , what in the name of &***())) , is he doin ? the buggers removed his tee and putting his Flea look alike act ... as if they are RHCP ....boy not in a million years of evolution.....
ok after 5 or 6 years PDV gave way for orange street ... lemme be honest and declare my seemingly biased opinion...the vocalist on the band who sings hindustani classical is a good friend of mine, imran khan....oh not the oxford blues pathan sppedster.....this one happens to be a more kiddish version and one ....the guy is a prodigy and is acknowledged to be a likely great in the time to come.......ok hmm regarding the cincert they sounded good but i guess they found it hard to gain the crowd support mainly becoz it was geared for a more fast paced stuff and these guys had more a mish mash stuff.... so by the time they worked up their pacer their would be a dholak or a classical piece which would dramatically bring down the pace .....ok this might work with an audience tired of death metal and thrash ..probably why OS is getting good reviews in europe than in india....
then came the

network,mind and everything down......

for the last couple of months since i left and academia has started off with my career the net has been a solace to my self imposed solitude....
i jus get plugged on and then jus roam like a wild bison across the tremendous space
.... for the last few days things havent been exactly rockin.........
1. had a really bad experience at people assesment
one of the fundamental skills that a entrepreneur or a manager should posess is the understanding of human behaviour ...........
though no one can have a fool proof assmt the best of the breed are those who can take teh mindscan to the max........
but when emotions and expectations cloud ur vision and judgement then ur in dabgerzone ....u just fckd up and are in choppy waters............
maybe thats what i just been doin over the period...............

somewhere this sinkin feelin is creepin in that i have been losing ground for quite long ........................

the old me is somewhere lost forgotten and laid to rest by the career driven me..........

the me who used to dream about makin my own movies and writing a book and maybe even becoming a rock star ................

stuck deep in a pool of tar
cant raise a finger
nor a hope in mind
ever condemned to a cellar in mind
shalt ur dreams rot for eternal....

but maybe im not that much a sissy
maybe i will cut through even this as well

if the world can push me
i can whoop its ass !

maybe that was a lil melodramtic bravado

so what fuck it !

im gonna kick some ass
