Cold and beautiful

Personally , I don't like dark things , except Nandita das maybe . I know people have problems , but reading about them leaves me depressed and suicidal .So I don't really like poems about heartbreaks and music videos like "Accha Sila Diya" and movies where people have some type of cancer .I like funny stuff like watching Ganguly bat or reading my college gradesheets.However , sometimes I come across stuff which is dark , but in a consuming way . Something which is about death , yet very alive in its intensity. Something which is so brutally cold , that it just grips you.


When I was a kid , I went to a toy store with my dad and when he asked what I wanted , I pointed at the ugly guy who was a helper at the shop.So my tastes actually suck.But whatever , I loved this article :

Dark-page-from-her-diary

Also , I hope I find a job soon . I am not really in an emotionally relaxed and free state these days . I haven't watched a movie over the last four days and haven't even replied to the nice people with a lot of time to waste who left comments on the last post .My career is at an amusingly crucial stage and my mental state , though relatively cool , compares well with a father of seven who has just been fired from his job , robbed on his way back , and informed of his wife's next pregnancy on getting home . I hope to get back with some good news soon.

whats wrong about 'a father of seven who has just been fired from his job , robbed on his way back , and informed of his wife's next pregnancy on getting home'...

if he wants it, he still could dance his probs away with a smile...
kids are good, four of his kids are going to 4 of the 6 IIMs when they grow up,and the other 3 to AIIMS, good that he was fired, his job sucked anyways, now he can look for a better one,...and robbery,may be he is really xcited about the it, coz this was his 1st time, at last he knows what a robbery is all about.......and about his wife's pregnancy, well.....even after 7 children, see he still loves her so much and she loves him too.... cant u see.
u can always find reasons to rejoice.......i beleive theres nothing wrong in being stupid and happy.....if u cant be stupid then at least be happy.
so smile bachcha.

Niedhie said...

Hey Mr. Soul,its really painful to know that a person who daily brings in lots of smiles on everyone's face is in pain himself.

Don't worry at all, you will get the best pie.

Good luck.

Hey dude....dunno what to say...b'coz the only respite is getting a confirmed offer....and these days are stressful .... specially in a world full of cynical 'crabby' MBAs....but what the heck....you are gonna do just fine.....saaf pani ya mehakta sabun...buddy you will be happy :)

And I won't say any 'accha hoga' kinda stuff....except....'sabka katega'

Lots of luck and keep the faith.

...And then it turned out that this father of seven won Lottery, had a daughter who turned Einstein's Theory of Relativity on it's head, and the stolen money turned out to be fake anyways...

Cheers, dude! It'll work out.

Hey Abhinav (I hope i got the name right),

This is the first time i am writing a comment. Your posts have always provided the much needed relief from a long stressfull day at work.

I know what it seems like in this campus placement but dont lose hope...During my time, i actully did get a campus job, finally to get a kick on my butt (thanks to Osama for bringing the WTC down, along with a long recession and a pink slip at my doorstep). But that was not the end...one year struggle and now i am in Asia's biggest software consulting firm....(India's No 1 ..and that is NOT Infy..FYI)

Hey do you see that ray of light ahead...go grab it....All the BEST....and thanks....
