Quote Life, Quote Being

It doesn’t really matter what other people say or think about you. Go ahead and do what you know is best.The disappointments of the past are no big deal, and your fears of the future exist only in your imagination. Step forward and do what you know you must do – Ralph Marston

Screaming simplicity and finding their high-pitched way into tough-times-not-gonna-last-for-long mind mode, which I was in desperate need of.

Thank you Akbar Shariff.

Pride To The Bone

Writing this in the country that started it all is a feeling beyond verbalization. I still remember the history textbooks which taught us the incidents, catastrophes and events that eventually lead to this day, our Independence day. The Jallianwalabagh massacre, the Dandi march and the Purna Swaraj, though the dates seem a bit hazy, the story narrated through the pictures in our 7th and 8th grade SST textbooks remain vivid and distinct. A story that made independent India what it is today, a story that brings a smile so fuelled with pride and glory and a story of a time period in history that gloriously describes a nation’s unity in a time of great difficulty. A story, which is the reason  why we call India our motherland. A story for time itself to take.

On August 15 1947, a new day was born for any other but a nation was reborn with a new soul in a land called Bharath. Today, it is with colossal pride and boundless joy that I, Vandhana Mothinath celebrate my country’s 64th Independence day. For all the jawans and soldiers who have laid down their lives to help us live ours, JAI HIND!

My country, my home , my heart. India, forever more.

HAPPY BDAY DAD!!!

mum-n-dad

I totally love the picture lead off for every post now.

Happy birthday dad! 🙂 Miss you and mom. I miss the 11:30 pm dinners, club food and Halls dad. I miss the early morning bus chases, your half hour hollers and ‘Do something about your weight.’ speeches mom. Even the most detested everyday stuff is finding one way or the other to be missed. And being home alone is freedom/happiness unleashed? Whoever said that gets my slaughter stare and glare.

Please come back home soon!

January 2008-The month that was

The new year started off on a rough note with reasons better untold but otherwise the first month of 2008 was pretty much averagish. Equally eventful as it was surprising.

Fourth sem began with a bang on Jan 2nd what with all of us meeting up after almost a month.Needless to say on the very first day our enthu pattani profs made it a point to feed us with something they call basics of their subject which ultimately resulted in us throwing up inside our mouths. Adding to the dismay were our subjects,dehydrated like super-special-sun-licked dry tasteless tomatoes.Just when I thought it couldn’t get more nauseating *puffffff* there appeared our NM prof,after a long list of ma’dame’ profs, a man(finally!)  with uber sexy mane when straightened would reach halfway down his hip.

So,one random NM class:

Prof:Ahh you at the back side there…

Unaware he’s pointing at me I stare at him blank as the green board behind him.

Prof:You girl,get up,say me the answer for the ‘eijen’ value.

Me:(Nudging VV sitting next to me to help me out who apparently also had no idea what the guy was asking about) Sir,too many values here,which one do you want sir?(obviously a little less loud and then mumbling with an answer after which I was reluctantly asked to sit down)

So ultimately it was then that we realised that this prof was our ‘Dodging and Ducking’ sir of the fourth sem.

A few days later, random lab session:

It was just a record note that I had in hand which I didn’t know we weren’t supposed to bring that day.

Our incharge prof:(Sore from the start and super annoyed when I made my entry) Why are you behaving like anything ma?

Me:*I just died then*

Random lab session II:

SR’s copyright knock-knock joke.

SR:Knock…knock

VM:Who’s there?

SR:You know

VM:You know who?

SR:YOU- KNOW -WHO!…AVADA KEDAVRA!!!! DIE I SAY!

VM:*I so did! the second time ’round!*

Classes aside,my bday arrived a few days later.I was not all that excited about my last-teen-year bday,man growing old can be a b*tch sometimes.But hey,surprises have their own blissful language.So SR bought a huge delicious vanilla cake for my bday which was,thanks to my friends,also used as a facepack for ten mins!

Birthdays,treats,4th sem,Saarang(which I happened to attend the last day to witness our coll’ s short film ‘Murphy’s Law’ starring our 8th sem stud boys),Choreo Nite(my first pro-show event attended at Saarang),NSS camp at Ayakulathur,Rotaract camp at a public school in Porur,odd sem results(one big comedy show!),eleven restaurants experimented(good food-happy yappy camper!),fab six yards of pure magic(my first special family wedding sari),my new room and *DOUBLE YAY!!!* for the blastoff of SPLASH PORTAL!

January 2008 has been a month of sorts for me,special and exceptional in more ways than one and may February comprise of an extra dose of fun-extreme! 

So here goes for the amethyst month…KICKASS!!! 😀

Celebrated Excerpts

Its almost been one year and a half and everyday I find it pleasurably new and exciting.My college life with justified measure has so far been supremely entertaining,genuinely depressing,surprisingly enlightening(curriculum and otherwise) and completely delightful!!!

Thanks heaps to a magnificent set of classmates,my BFFs!

Classes would never have been the same without them and our profs.Last benchers society,’behind-the-prof’s back’ delictable snack sessions,underground record writing,day dreaming,TR commentary,’what was the question again?’,canteen rejoice,phunny teknikal frafessor’s englipish,wholesale bunking and the list keeps going and going!! So heres some stuff which was laughed at and about.Stuff that will be cherished always and yeah relevent to the title(atlast!)

One random first sem phy class…

Physics Prof:Ahh take down in your note…feezo-yelectric method…

Students:*Blink* *Blink*

Prof:TAKE DOWN!

One Student:Sir,can you please repeat it.

Prof:What is this? You are all now engineering students and you dont know this also? *shakes head*.Take down spells it P-I-E-Z-O-E-L-E-C-T-R-I-C method.

Students:Oh dear Gaad!!!!
