The last day of 2005

December 30, 2005

… or the first day of 2006??

Well, optimism rules. So here’s a

Happy New Year!!

Look at the two images closely. The left one is snarling and the right one is calm. Now either squint your eyes or look at the images from a distance. See a switch?

Lif is like that. It often deceives you.

But then you squint at it and say,”Hey you, Life, you are givin’ me a raw deal here. And I ain’t gonna take that!! So screw you!”

I am glad I found the strength to say that when it was needed the most… Thanx to you ppl.

Living an anonymous life is not so easy, eh? You gotta hide an identity and maintain one at the same time. Your material identity tries to influence your virtual identity and vice-versa. The constant struggle between these two identities gets you (I wonder, what that means) down sometimes. But you choose to go on…

The world lies before you. you take one look and go,

“Uh, oh! I am not going there, It’s too fuckin’ huge!!”

And then you hear a voice, “Yeah, so?” And then –

Your feet start moving,
Your heart starts beating,
Your brain starts thinking,
Your eyes start seeing,
Your ears start listening.
You begin to feel and experience…
The wonderful journey called Life.

Here’s wishing all of you a very Happy New Year and prosperous life ahead.

“run down” by Quasi a.k.a Inane

December 27, 2005

One of the most beautiful photographs I have ever seen. To quote from the man himself:

“The only thing constant in life is change”

Then, how or what, in this constantly changing world, are we supposed to feel a connection with ? Change has always been here. But the pace of change has never been so much.

Sometimes I wish, change were something I could control. Then I would ensure that change does not change anything but change itself…

Makes a lot of sense, huh? May be you do have to be a rocket Scientist to figure me out… He he.

Oh shit. I’m losing it.


A new spot – BlogSpot!

December 23, 2005

A basic version of my new blog is up. Haven’t really thought of anything. The old blog will remian… And so will the stories (Yay!) May be I will move them here some day…

One thing I liked about Blogger is, it alows you to post on any date… 😀

I think I’ll use this post for a lotta backlinks and blogroll…

Old Stories

Thanx guys, you have made my life much better than it could ever be. I will add these links in the left pane soon, as soon as I figure out the settings on Blogger…

A few lines before I leave:

“Life goes on, as if a farce
After the rains, I see the stars,
I say to myself, it is so true,
The night will go, a morn is due…

I do not fear the night that falls,
Nor do scare me, the chilling calls,
I think of ghosts and laugh aloud,
Crowded singly yet alone in a crowd…”

Yours Truly,
Born Stinger.

Update: Dec 27, 2005

Quasi a.k.a Inane.
Still life: when life comes to a stand-still he is there to capture it…

Finally, figured out the settings… Had done it once before for my personal blog here.


A daily (?) blog. Supposedly…

October 3, 2005

This is supposed to be my daily blog of daily happenings. Or atleast, I thought I would do it that way.

Why is it then that I am updating my blog after such a long time?

Simple. I haven’t had the inclination to do anything yet. I come to work. I do my job. I go home. I listen to music. I have dinner. I sleep. I wake up. And the day starts all over again.

Sometimes, I do jot down my thoughts on my PC before I go to sleep; if I am not too tired, that is… I save it in a text file (no formatting tensions :D). most of the times I don’t… I must have hidden away millions of these thought in my brain until now. I think I oughtta get myself one of those small recorder gizmos. Or I must out it on my wish-list. May be some good friend will gift it to me on my budday. Hmmm, now there’s a thought for you…

I still haven’t found it comfortable to jot down my thoughts in a public space like this one. I have always tried to keep my two identities separate. I think, I have succeeded until now, but I am not sure…

May be that’s whyI do not want to venture out my personal details even though this is a psudonymous blog. Somewhere, someone can always make a connection. You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to figure me out.

Or may be you do…


So much for regularity…

August 27, 2005

Ok. May be I am not gonna be so frequent after all…

The fact is I love creating these sites and reserving them. I love to see my work getting published (at least somewhere!!)

I’d love to keep posting my thoughts on all places, if I had the chance and, more importantly, the time.

No, I am not a hi-flier, or a big-shot. Just a simple man with too many demands on my time. Moreover, I don’t get paid to write blogs 🙂 Wish I were, though…

I still have no idea what to do with these pages… But I won’t give them up, that’s for sure.

May be a couple of lines every now and then, I think…

Or some poems…

Or anecdotes…

Or incidents…

Or jokes…

or stories…

Heck, who am I kidding?
