A freak I am, a freak.

April 30 2011

Still, I suppose I should be grateful that whatever force or demon or person possesses my body doesn't (usually) compel me to do dangerous or violent things, I merely look peculiar and daft.

Ah! And that's another thing to add to the "Do's and Don't's for the Crisis Team" that my social worker is compiling - DON'T assume that I am depressed and must therefore be indulging in obsessive rumination and negative thinking.

Do not pass go

April 29 2011

Just a flying visit to chennai, while I am home to get some things, since I have somehow managed to end up in clients place. Take care everyone, I'll catch up when I can !@#%^&*)

Its hurting me too much

April 28 2011

Thank you for the responses on my last calls. I'm tempted just to leave things there, maintain the illusion that I have recovered and that is that, for ever and ever. Real life is not so simple and I currently feel uneasy about that relationship, and rather foolish. Because I no longer feel so well. The world has shifted and my mood has slipped. Nothing has happened to trigger this change. I wish something had, because that would make sense. I could curse this illness, that so many people have competing explanations for, but that feels to me as I experience it so random and so physical. That keeps laying me low so that I wonder just how many times someone can go through this saying I am sleepy thats why?!.

Sodding Side Effects

April 27 2011

Silly me, I had this idea that if they were giving a medication to calm me down it might also make me drowsy in a good way and enable me to get some delicious and much needed sleep. But a google search shows that a common side effect of propranolol is disturbed sleep and it's sure disturbing mine. I don't think I've had two hours tonight and even that not all at once as I spent most of the night either not sleeping or drifting on the border of dreaming and waking where realities are layered and overlapped. This is definitely not good for my mental health. Sorry, not an interesting post, I am just rather frustrated right now because I have been thoroughly awake since three o clock and I feel both tired and wired.

9 things

April 26 2011

I have decided to compile a list of 9 things that I need to do in order to have a fun, exciting life.

1. Experience the most intense rainstorm I have ever been in and try to run to work in it…or try to drive the car in it…or do anything in it for that matter.

…check. (in case you’re wondering, had I jumped in the pool after running around in the rain, I would have been able to dry myself off. and my fake Adidas, which were normally a light purple color, were plum.)

2. Have your mirror fall off your wall, have half of it shatter, and leave the other half sitting in the living room.

3. Own a snuggie.

…check. (someone tried to run off with mine yesterday. his name is Siva. I call him rocky.  He’s in the army. i ran after him. i almost got him. did i mention how he’s in the army? don’t worry about it. i’m just that cool.)

4. Own a handy digi cam.

…check. (yeah that’s right. be jealous!)

5. Have the best mom in the world.

…check. (my mom made me and the asian some sweet sassy curtains for our room. and then we put up some letters and sunflowers. yeah my mom is basically the bombdotfreakingcom.)

6. Lie to your ward and tell them that you and one of the missionaries from your parents’ mission is your cousin.

…check. (Vicky and I? totally cousins. can’t you see the resemblance?)
7. Hang out/be friends with said missionary.

8. Have the most amazing and fun roommates who I can count on for anything, especially one in particular who always forgives me when I say things I don’t mean and whom I love even when his hair is a dilemma.

…check. (I love you sudarshan)

9. Own a Home.

…working progress.


April 24 2011

Today has been a good day.
I went to work.then went and purchased a can of pringles.
I gave 2 to Sruthi, and about 10 to Adarsh.
Then I ate the rest.
Meaning I practically ate the whole can.
Like all of it.
In it's entirety.
except not the can.
Just the cheeps.
Don’t worry that’s like 560 calories. no biggie.
I guess you could say I did well.
I mean, 100% is good right? :)
Yeah I was pretty happy.
when I got home, I wanted someone to be here so I could sing and dance.
No one was home.
So I did it anyway.
I threw my hands up in the air and said “ay-oh,”
Broke some hearts,
But I never said never.
Life is glorious, is it not? :)

Are u a college student huh?!

April 22 2011

In college, you got to be different from the rest of the gang to be recognized. If you have a shabby beard, they would consider you as a cool chap. I never had a beard then. So i was never cool in that sense. Humor is a puller and thanks to it, I had a big number of friends.

Most girls form their gangs based on their common interests.
"Do you watch FRIENDS?". "Yes, I watch FRIENDS. ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha (irritating laughter). Let's be friends".
"Oh Sharuk Khan is cute". " I find him cute too. Let us be friends"

Boys on the other hand have a totally different approach.
"I am Dhoni's biggest fan". " No I am his biggest fan. You are my enemy". These enemies would join together when they see a Sreesanth fan. Unfortunately Sreesanth doesn't have any fan. So the Dhoni fans remain as enemies. Sometimes they become friends too. Guys normally don't have ego problems among them unless and until the reason for their problem is a girl.

Most of these relationships are based on common interests, likes and dislikes. The emotional involvement is barely seen in relationships these days. I am not ruling out the possibility of emotional involvements in relationships. But it is very rare. Very few friends know about the personal problems of their friends. Otherwise their topic revolve around politics, movies, music bands, aishwarya rai, cricket, Hot guys (in the case of girls) and girls [hot or cold doesn't matter] (In the case of guys).Everyone wants to be the center of attraction and to get that attention, we perform many unwanted stunts. When I reminisce on the ugly stunts that I have done in my college days to garner attention, I end up smiling.

No one would like to portray themselves as an emotional chicken in college for fear of being called as a sissy. How ever some guys use the emotional mask to attract the species of the opposite sex. Many girls fall for this trap , but they are very talented in escaping out of the trap too. The boys bite the dust 9 out of 10 times.

Every college student will talk about the following topics

Aishwarya rai, Anushka, Sachin, and Dhoni
Whether they know it or not, they have to talk about the 2G scam
They also will light candles for the Lok-Pal movement. They shout anti-corruption slogans but break all the rules in colleges and call that as their birth right.
They know about news in Japan, US of A and even in the UK, but they would not know what's happening in their neighborhood.
They cry out loud for equality for all, but they mistreat the laborers in their hostel mess.
They know all that happens in the lives of their favorite actors and actresses, but do not know anything about that one Un-cool classmate who yearns for a shoulder to cry on.
If one talks sense he is a boring idiot. If someone talks about integrity he or she is treated as a loser. If someone stands for the truth and doesn't copy in exams he or she is treated as a heretic. If you are a virgin you are looked down. Believe me! I am not talking rocket science here. I am talking about my own personal experience in my college. I have called many as sissies too, coz I considered myself to be cool because I was the F word speaking, Yo word pronouncing - sign showing Bozo.

Ragging someone was cool.
Irritating someone made you look cool too.
If you can sarcastically hurt someone, you are the Hero.
If you gossip a lot, you are the Man.
You have to enter into the personal space of others and create problems.
If you don't allow someone to enter your personal space, you are a sissy.
Relationships don't mean a thing.
Sex is just a three letter word
Love = Lust.
The Uncool sissies finish college, slowly move up in the career ladder and establish themselves as successful citizens. The Cool Heroes continue to rag, tease, gossip about others and end up no where.

Message of this post :
Be a sissy and have a good career or
Be cool and have no Real friends, with no True relationships and when you can't take it any more.

Why do we have day and night?

April 21 2011

I have often asked the question to myself... Why do we have day and night? What made God to create such a sequence? Why does it get dark in the night and Why is it so bright in the day time?
I have thought about this question right from my childhood days; sitting in the classroom, while playing, while hogging and even while taking bath... Finally some day -last year I got the answer to this question when I was in the restroom.
When God created the earth, He saw it empty and hence He created the Oceans and Land. Still He was not really happy with What he created and so he created some trees.Still God wanted a twist in his creation and so he pondered for a while and finally said in a Loud Voice,"Let there be Light"... Immediately The SUN appeared from no-where and smiled with great confidence. Immediately God said,"Let there be Animals".. Immediately Malika Sherawat, George Bush, Mike Tyson, Osama Bin Laden, Terror Romeo Rajendar, Cabtun Vijaykanth, Pamela Anderson emerged from the Bushes and started running around the land...
God had a great shock and he immediately said," Let there be darkness".At once, the sky became dark, stars appeared in the sky and moon slowly peeped-in from behind the clouds.God was happy cos he did not have to see the animals with his eyes now.God also gave some finishing touches to the moon and as a result, the moon started to shrink every 24 hours. Nights went by and one night, the moon completely disappeared (New Moon)... God waited and waited; but moon was not to be seen. So he fine tuned some stars and they started to twinkle.God could see what was happening in Land now. He was again shocked because certain animals took advantage of complete darkness and started their own activities. The culprits, this time were Nithyananda, Ranjitha. God made a report of their activity...As the moon went into a hiding that night, and God caught Ranjitha and Nithy using the STARS, the report later came to be called as the STARR report...A few other culprits were also noticed by God... 3G Raja and Kalmadi was one among them..

PS: Reks always say that I ll talk @ Night 11 30pm and she always used to sleep and make me disappointed and I use to say I ll call you @ Morning 9 30 am and I used to sleep,  Thus I have found the answer to the never-to-be-solved question...

Say me dear!

April 20 2011

1. Who are you?
2. Are we friends?
3. Something I have and YOU want?
4. Give me a nickname and explain why you picked it?
5. Describe me in one word.
6. What was your first impression of me?
7. Do you still think that way about me now?
8. What reminds you of me?
9. If you could give me anything what would it be?
10. How well do you know me?
11. How do you see me in the future?
12. Ever wanted to tell me something but couldn’t?
13. Should I post this in my blog and see what everyone say about me and you?
14. For what reason you feel to ask me sorry?
15. Do you still crazy about me?

Everyone makes mistakes

April 19 2011

“Take chances, Make mistakes. That's how you grow. Pain nourishes your courage. You have to fail in order to practice being brave.” – Mary Tyler Moore

Everyone makes mistakes.
Sometimes those mistakes hurt.
Like really bad.
But don’t dwell on the mistake.
Dwell on the chance you took.
Chances are, the chance you took was worth the pain.
Well, sometimes .
Definitely not all the time.
But the recent experiences I’ve had outweigh the pain they brought.
I would go through them again and again, just so I could relive the happiness I was able to feel for the short time.
So...I guess this is me saying thank you REKS.
Thank you for the happiness REKS.
Thank you for the good times REKS.
Thank you for the memories REKS. (and just like last time, I mean that literally, not sarcastically)
so...thanks REKS:)

D&T 19:1130 “...for if they never should have bitter they could not know the sweet.”

PS : Still waiting with love till you come!

Dove isn't soap.” – dove soap commercial

I got an email from my sister the other day.
She told me she was going through post-withdrawals.
And that it’s not like I had anything else to do.
So, my dear sisy, this one is for you.

So last sunday, I had to give a talk in hospital.
It had been a bit of a crazy week.
So it was straight up scatterbrained.
It probably didn't help that I didn’t write anything down.
I just got up and talked.
I had never done anything like that before.
It was weird and i didn’t think it went that well.
But I did get some compliments.
So I guess it wasn’t a complete epic fail.
Here we go.
So I spoke on hope.
Which was perfect topic for me after last week.
It started out absolutely horridly.
I’ve never felt like more of a complete failure in my life.
But thanks to the people in my life, I was able to pull through.
Then I read some stuff on hope.
You know, in preparation for my talk.
and then I got to thinking about my week.
(I was very pensive last week.
it was almost weird.)
Yes it was quite the crap load of nastiness.
Yes it made me feel like a hopeless case of epic failureness.
Yes I wanted to give up. multiple times.
But then I realized that I had been prepared for this week.
First off, I had been asked to give this talk.
So I’d been studying up on hope and how important it is.
I mean, I already knew.
But it was a good reminder all the same.
But also, I had these great friends.
Amazing, actually.
They were there for me.
And that’s when it hit me.
The Lord wants us to put our hope in Him.
He wants us to trust Him.
He wants us to put our faith in Him.
He truly does.
So He helps us do that.
He gives us reason to.
I saw that He had prepared me for times like last week.
He gave me friends that would help me when I needed it.
He put thoughts in my head that would help me make it through.
It was yet another reminder that the Lord truly wants us to succeed.
He really does care about what’s going on.
He wants us to rely on Him to help us get through it.
So He helps us realize that He really is helping us so that we’ll go to Him so He can help us get through our trials so we can make it back to Him.
It’s the most amazing thing.
Now, this isn’t to say that everything gets better.
Oh heavens no.
I still have those trials.
And I feel like more have just been dumped on me.
But I know who I can go to.
He will help me get through anything.
and regardless of how crappy life is,
It will get better.

And as ka“dove isn’t soap.”–dove soap commercial

And as katy perry said,
”after a hurricane comes a rainbow.”

{I apologize for the scatter=brained-ness of this. I guess my one crazy week hasn’t ended yet...}

Ladies Hostel

April 16 2011

Many a times, the human mind plays hide and seek with personal spaces. Many of us always have the tendency to poke our nose into the lives of others. We would love to over hear conversations, witness street fights and also gossip about the people around us. PrabhuPepsi is one such person. He always pokes his nose and gets solid punches every time
Flashback : 23 years ago.

Prabhupepsi was in class 4th. 

There was a big commotion in the school. The Parents teachers association meeting was in full flow. Heated exchange of words was happening in the premises. The girls had raised a complaint against the boys. They had complained that some boys were frequently visiting the ladies hostel rooms shouting and making them  scare and disturbing them while study time. All the parents were staring at all the boys with scornful eyes. Some of the anger filled eyes even stared at the most Innocent Pepsiboy also. The meeting ended in a disaster and no action was taken as no one could exactly find the culprit .

The next week, some girls started hatching a plan to nab the culprit when the school bell rang and that too during our free periods. They were always in a huddle. Some of the girls even pointed their fingers at Pepsiboy and murmured something amongst themselves. Pepsiboy could not take it any longer. He started following them. The girls disappeared into their hostel rooms. Pepsiboy waited patiently outside the ladies hostel near their rooms and the girls emerged out of the room after 15 minutes. They dispersed and went in different directions.

Pepsiboy became restless, because he did not have any idea about what the girls discussed . The next day, the girls did the same thing. Pepsiboy would follow them, they would go inside their rooms and he would wait outside their rooms and after 15 minutes, they would emerge out of their rooms. This continued for one week and this irritated him. He reached a point where he could not take it any longer. He realized that the girls were plotting something against him inside the hostel. Half early exam was over and 15 days holiday came and Pepsiboy decided to sneak inside the ladies hostel to find out the plot hatched by the girls. That Saturday, Pepsiboy went to the school. No one was around. Only the watchman was standing near the gate. He allowed Pepsiboy inside the school because Pepsiboy told him that he came to spend sometime in the library to study. As soon as Pepsiboy entered the school, he went straight to the ladies hostel. To his horror he saw the following lines written on the walls of the ladies hostel room.
When he saw these three words, he almost had tears in his eyes. How could the girls do such a thing to him? He sat in the ladies hostel room for fifteen minutes, cried a lot and left the place with a heavy heart. Holidays was over and school reopens there was a big commotion in school yet again. Everyone were giving Pepsiboy dirty stares. Finally the Principal of the school approached Pepsiboy with a big cane and started thrashing him. It was a horrific scene. He fell down and saw everyone standing around him. None of them saw him with even 1% sympathy. Even his friends turned their heads away. Pepsiboy was in tears. The Principal then dragged him to the ladies hostel room and made Pepsiboy to look at the wall. As soon as Pepsiboy saw the wall, he realized his folly. Below the three words written by the girls, there was an additional line.


We are the same!

Facebook Punch

April 12 2011

Prabhupepsi is an avid facebook user and he has not more than 50 people in his friends list. He knows only 1/3rd of them personally. The rest are his Blog friends, readers and his spiritual friends.

Three days ago, a middle aged man added me on facebook. He is a spiritual leader. He added me with a preconceived thought that I would be sharing insights that relate to his thoughts. But he got irritated with me when he saw my humor posts and he did not like it. He also did not like my spiritual stand, because it conflicted with his ideologies. I never knew all this.

Last night, this middle aged man added a status message

What do you do to remove some one from facebook friends list?

When I saw his status message, I decided to help him. So I became the first to comment on his page.
He removed me from his friend list.
Yes, I am telling all my readers now, "Prabhupepsi is indeed a PAIN."

I might be in your good books. I might be in your bad books. But I really don't care a hoot. I love being myself. You ain't living my life. It is my life and I will live it my way and not Your way.

Venue : Adyar - Pizza Hut - Chennai.

April 11 2011

I walked inside and was waiting in the queue to order the Pizza of the day, when I noticed a group of youngsters talking something about me. I even overheard one guy telling the others, "Hey guys! That looks like Pepsiboy - the Blogger". When he uttered those words, a sense of happiness tickled my body and I went to a different world. A few questions started popping in my head
1. Will they trouble me for my autograph?
2. Will the two girls in that group go crazy and scream in high pitched voices to show their happiness in seeing me?
3. Will they take pictures with me and upload it in their facebook albums?
4. If they are working in reputed firms, would they romp me to become their brand ambassadors.

I was almost basking in the glory of my dream process when I realized that it was my turn to place the order. I started to place my order and tried to listen to the conversation of the group of people who were sitting behind me. They suddenly started speaking in hushed tones. I could not hear them. I turned around and all of them were giving me dirty stares. Are they Terror Romeo Rajendar's or Gaptun's fans? A shiver ran down my spine. I went to the corner of the room, ate the cold melt Pizza and left the place in a hurry. There are advantages of being recognized in public places and there is also a danger of getting beaten up in public places when people recognize you.

Some people just walk into our life and perform magic tricks with our heart. I have never experienced LOVE in the romantic sense. I have walked in this planet Earth for the past 30 years and there has been even no crushes and no infatuations and even  never had the HOTS for a few girls. But I was never ever reciprocated with love. But they say that change is the only constant thing, and that change happened in my life one month back. I first saw her 18 days back in her photo. Now as I type this post I am so glad because her words, "Prabhu, I started loving you" is still echoing in my ears. Now, even I know the feeling of being by loved by someone so sweet and special.Yes! PrabhuPepsi is hitched.

How did it happen? I asked her.
Silence followed. Our eyes spoke the language of love without seeing each other.
"Was that a serious answer"
"Yes It was. I think I have found my girl!"
"Can I make you mine?"
"You can!"
"Let me make it sound classical then. Girl;-I Love You"
"Prabhu,I love you too"
Shall I hold your hands?.
It was completely a new feeling for me. I did not want to leave her hand. I came back to my home and I rang her up
She: Yes Donkey (She calls me Donkey when she gets mushy)
Me: I am gonna blog about you.
She: I don't think you would do that.
Me: Why would you say that?
She: You always write funny stuffs in your blog. I don't think you would write something like this
Me: Everything has a new beginning. I am also adding a picture of you in my blog
She: Are you serious?
Me: Yes! The one you mail me.
She: Your readers would treat it as a joke.
Me: I don't think so.
She: Ok. Tell me when you publish it. I want to be the first one to read it.
After our call got over, I started typing this post. I even gave a information to my mom and said,"Mom! Your son has finally found a daughter-in-law for you". "Don't fool around". "Check my blog mommy". By the way, this is my REKS.

“Yes, mam.”

April 09 2011

I was born on June 15, it is the 166th day of the year (167th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. There are 199 days remaining until the end of the year. A bad time to be born. That ISRO  was to announce Sky Lab is falling on India on 15th June, 1980…but my mother beat her to it by a couple of hrs and delivered me at the Hospital, Tiruppur on 15 June 1980.
I say a bad time to be born, because 15 June always fell during the end of summer vacations. As a result I never got the privilege of celebrating birthday in school. My birthdays were either celebrated in trains, with a plate of bread omelette's or upma-vada (depending on which state the train was passing by) or in our relatives house where nobody cared.

As a result I have always been envious of people born during regular school days.

Not just my classmates, but the whole school would wear colored clothes to school on their birthdays. Guess, this helped the teacher identify whose birthday it was and remark as soon as she was finished taking attendance: “Ohh…Deepa, it is your birthday today!”

The sheepish, shy yet proud classmate would then give the stock reply: “Yes, mam.”

I gather, the only time when any of my classmates said “No, mam” was when they were asked if they did the homework. For everything else, it was “yes, mam.”

The class teacher would then respond with her stock second question: “So, how old are you now?”

Gosh! You should be in the class to note the pride in the boy’s or girl’s voice when he/she mentioned the age.

I detested all of this, because I never got a chance to express my pride of being one year older than the previous day.

After the formal talk, the classmate would say: “Mam, I have got chocolates.”

The distribution started with the teachers and those with lucky kids took handfuls to take home.

Depending on how rich their parents were, my classmates would fill their lunch boxes with either Orange, Mango Bite or Eclairs and go around the class distributing.

I vividly remember, spending a whole period wondering if it would be morally right to pick up two Orange chocolates instead of one when the guy/girl came around. But I always picked one, promising myself that next time I would definitely pick up two.

The best part of celebrating one’s birthday in school was that you never got scolded by the teachers. For somebody like me who got scolded everyday, this meant a lot.

So, why are we talking of celebrating birthdays? That’s because, today my sisy reminded me that her daughter’s birthday was fast approaching and we needed to prepare for the D-day on 15 April shall we bro?!.

and my answer was "Yes, mam" 

To My Dad

 April 08 2011
 Any man can be a father, but it takes a special person to be a dad 
A very personal letter to a person who gave me the definition of the word "Appa"
[For Public Display. I have never done this. But I don't care anymore]
Dear Appa!

I am thankful for what you gave me.

An offer that I can never refuse

Your impartation of God given Wisdom through Love.

Which I would cherish all through my life with a wow.

Your family came first to you and your work was next.

It didn't matter to you even if it meant that you had no rest.

You were there when we needed you.

Family get together, prayer fellowships, dinners and outings.

We were your first priority

I haven't seen a better mathematician than you.

I am awed by the Business man who is a part you.

When I see the respect that you get in the society, I am glad.

And when you go with a convoy, I say to my friends, "That VIP is my Appa".
I tease you

I make fun of you and

I pull your legs

Things that no one else in the World has dared to do.

You never wanted me to be like you;

You neither forced your ideas on me

You always wanted to see me as the Individual I am.
You have always adored me for who I am

40 years - 1 Job

6 years - 5 Jobs

That's the difference between You and Me.

I am not organised like you.

I never had a goal in life.

I moved along with the flow

I have been a complete failure; but

I have learnt my lessons now

I have let you down in the past

I have broken your heart

But Dad, it's not gonna happen again.

I have seen you dad, the way you took care of Grandpa during the last days of his life. You did your duty as a son. You always Honored your parents.

You have set a benchmark; which is a herculean mountain for me to climb.

Thrice - I have seen you cry.

One - When Grandpa died ,

Two - When Grandma passed away,

Three - When I was arrested.

You gave me Mom and What more do I need?

First, it was Mom and then it was me.

My definition of a Happy Family.

Your choice for your life partner was a perfect woman.

I know what to look for when my heart does the scan.

I am aware that you'll wait with me

I won't let you down

"The most important thing a father can do for his children is to love their mother." Theodore M. Hesburgh.

I have never seen a romantic couple like you and mom. Theodore might have had you in his mind when he made that statement.
If people ask me " Is your dad always right?," my answer would be No!

If people ask me " Was he always perfect?," my answer would be No!

If they ask me " Is your dad the strongest?," my answer would be No!

If they ask me " Is your Dad the wisest?," my answer would be No!

"Then What's all this fuss? What is so special about him?," they might ask...

My answer would be:
He is My Dad and that's all you need to know

I Love You Appa!

God bless

Love and I worship you Appa,

GENDER Science

April 07 2011


Husband = man
Wife = woman

Disclaimer : The following article proves the above two equations wrong.

Those who are sure about their gender can continue reading...

Long Long ago , so long ago, when I was in class three, I attempted to master the art of copying in exams. As u all know that I was very innocent, I did not have the efficacy to carry out a malpractice successfully. I was caught by my biology teacher and she made me kneel down in front of the so called hot babes in my class. I still remember that day when Deepa, Poongodi, Gayathri, Tamil Selvi, Shyla, Shyamala, Chitra and  Meena laughed at me. That was when I thought of taking revenge on my  biOlogy teacher.

Days flew by and soon I was in Class Four:

The same biOlogy teacher became my class teacher. Finally I got a chance to take revenge on her. The pain she took to teach us the GENDER differences urged me to ask more doubts( I was very innocent, u see). She managed her level best to clear most of my doubts,which in turn would provoke me ask serious innocent doubts. But just when I start thinking that I had the last laugh she will ask me a tricky question and I would finally end up kneeling down.The laughing and giggling from girls side will start as usual. I guess they were madly in love with me.

Days again started flying and today I ended up making the discovery of the century.!! I dunno if " the Noble prize academy" would recognize my discovery and award me the noble prize for works in english and biology.
If you are thinking what my discovery is, I am not gonna confuse u any further. I'll go into the matter straight.My discovery I opened a word document and typed the word wife. and out of curiosity, I checked the synonyms for the word WIFE. I have attached the answer here...
If u have any doubts , check it out.The meaning for the word wife, is husband.Either Bill Gates is wrong or my Biology teacher is wrong ( I have finally taken revenge on her)I do not mind even if one among the two is right, cause in both cases I will end up as the winner.(Deepa, Poongodi, Gayathri, Tamil Selvi, Shyla, Shyamala, Chitra and  Meena... all u girls can laugh now)
will I get the Nobel prize  ???

So what?

April 06 2011

I don't care. So what?

It's a nice feeling, to not care.

Let's face it: I can't write any more. This blog is taking too long to end. And all I can think of still is crap. So what?
I am happy, extremely happy most of the time these days and want to stay that way. I know I won't. So what?
There are days I don't feel like going out and face all humans and just don't, guiltlessly, so unlike last two years. So what?
These days sometimes I cry out of happiness, sometimes out of fear, sometimes out of hurt and sometimes for no reason at all. I cry a lot these days. So what?
Most of my 'friends & relatives' don't understand me any more. I'm everything from bitchy to intrusive to thoughtless to extremist to untrustworthy to uncaring to heartless and selfish. So what?
People fight and run away from me. I say ok. Then they fight they wanna come back. I dont feel a thing when they do. But So what?
Life is gonna sweet, real sweet real soon. So what ?

It's a nice feeling, to not care. I loved the solitude it brings; I love the love I have still around me.
I feel lucky. So what?

Cracking the codes of girls!

April 05 2011

Between girls they ll have lot of secrets and encrypt codes and only they can decrypt it. Yesterday my  girlfriend said she and her friends use code words between them. There are many of the common acronyms that boys also know like LOL(laughing out loud), BRB(be rite back) and TTYL (talk to you later). If girls want secrecy in real life, they'll talk a kind of gibberish that requires inserting an "ittica" between every word. With chat or text messaging, they'll make up their own words if they want extreme privacy. "Sometimes we boys, instead of saying the actual thing, like drinks, when you don't want to say the word 'weed,' you'll say, 'Did you get the orange juice I made for you?'". Indeed, girls trends change fast, and that makes it harder for parents to keep pace. According to a Pew study, 52 percent of teens prefer to communicate with friends via landline, versus 24 percent who prefer instant messaging and 12 percent who like to talk via cell phone best. For quick conversations, however, girls prefer IM or text messaging.

Every girls should realize that they can take heart in the fact that kids seem to grow out of their use of acronyms and slang in IM and text messaging once they're college-age. By the time kids get to college, they see IM as a convenient way to communicate. 

Every girls should answer honestly IS IT A HEALTHY WAY TO KEEP THE LANGUAGE EASY?

Oh am I getting serious? Come on we ll have some fun ;) here are few codes that girls use...

Blueberry: I am single
Pineapple: Its complicated
Raspberry: I am a touch and go woman
Apple: Engaged
Cherry: In a relationship
Banana: I am married
Avocado: Im the "other one"
Strawberry: Cant find the right one
Lemon: Wish i was single
Grape: wants to get married.
Orange: Likes to just "Look"
Melon: Sadly Widowed
Pear: no strings attatched. friend with benifits !!
PS : My girlfriend was bit in a mood swing for the past 2 days. Soon we ll reveal more. But don't say her I am the culprit ok, deal?!  

How Dare You?

April 04 2011

He bowled a Total of 13 overs in this world cup for team India. He was belted to all parts of the ground and in the process he conceded 105 runs from these 13 overs that he bowled. The Bangladesh Tigers smashed him around the park for 53 runs in just 5 overs in the very first match of the world cup. In the finals the Indian captain took a big gamble by picking him in the final line-up and he was again smashed around the park. He conceded 52 runs in 8 overs. Why is he still in the Indian cricket team? A question to which none of us have an answer. Yet, he is indeed a lucky charm for the Indian cricket team. You would have now come to know who I am talking about.

The black mark in the Bleed Blue Indian Team- Gopumon @ Sreesanth.

Rs 1 Crore for those beautiful bowling figures?
You can't be serious

Sachin Tendulkar, Yuvi, Raina are also getting the same reward for their performances.

You can definitely be not serious.

Sreesanth was thrashed around the park. He has never learnt from his mistakes. His temperament is so weak. He even tried picking a fight with Mahela Jayawardane. That was a very bad sign because Mahela will be leading the Cochin team in the IPL. Sreesanth is a part of the Kochi team.
I watched the finals along with my college friends in Park Hotel in Chennai. The atmosphere in the hotel was crazy. But everytime Sreesanth came on TV, everyone became furious. Foul words were thrown at him in unison.

When Dhoni hit a six to win the world cup for India, we all jumped in joy. It was an euphoric feeling. Everyone in the hotel went on a hugging spree. It was a joy to watch the Indian team rushing inside the ground.
When Yusuf Pathan carried Sachin on his shoulders, we had goosepimples.
When Yuvaraj Singh had tears in his eyes, we could relate with his feelings.
When Bhajji had tears in his eyes, we were moved
When the Little Master cried, we all cried along.
But suddenly, out of no where, Sreesanth also started crying and the immediate response was a bunch of foul words. One guy in the hotel even tried to do a Ponting act by attempting to break the big TV screen. But we calmed him down.

How can he even run the winning lap? How dare he?

The world CUP lost its purity the moment Sreesanth's lips came in contact with the cup. How can he kiss the same cup that was kissed by Sachin?
Why do 1 Billion people in the country get angry when Sreesanth appears on the screen? It is his childish attitude that comes to our mind. None of us have any personal qualms against Gopumon. As a person, he might be a wonderful personality. But what he is on the field definitely defines his role as a player in the Gentleman's game of Cricket.

I was mellowing down as I was typing this post. But the reaction given by Sreesanth in the following picture makes me go bonkers again. How dare he?
I can proudly say that Dhoni is the best captain India has ever produced. None of us can even fathom in our wildest thoughts on what runs in Dhoni's mind. But Our Mr. Cool Captain knows what he does and thats all we need. The following picture says it all. The jubilant mood of the Indian cricket team. It leaves a smile on my face. But when my eyes dart towards Gopumon, even my alter-ego starts shouting from inside my mouth with the words ,"How dare he?"
Sreesanth might even have an hairstyle like Malinga, but can he bowl like him in one dayers? Only His attitude will determine that in the future.

Dhoni did not take part in the post-match celebrations. He could not bear to see Sreesanth's emotional reactions after the match. Immediately he went ahead and Tonsured his head.
How dare he?

Our Symbol!

April 03 2011

The Indian currency - "Rupee" which has the backing of more than a trillion dollar economy has finally made its presence felt in the international scene. It is an old news indeed. As Pepsiboy was suffering from Blog constipation, he did not immediately write an article on this news. The new symbol was designed by Bombay IIT post-graduate D.Udaya Kumar. Now India is the fifth country in the world to have a distinct currency symbol.
This post captures the reaction of many VIPs (Mainly Indians) and their thoughts
on the new Rupee symbol. If you can't view the pictures clearly, please click on the pictures for an enlarged view.

Pepsiboy's World Cup 2011

April 02 2011

When India won the semifinal match against Pakistan, the kids in the neighborhood burst crackers and made merry. I totally accept that. But why did that 7 year old kid from my apartment punch me in the face? Totally Unacceptable.

I am very glad that India has moved to the finals of the worldcup where they will be facing the bowling trio of Malinga, Mendis and Murali.

Malinga has a foot fetish. He always bowls yorkers on the toes of the batsmen. Indians gotta watch out for his toe-breaking yorkers. When ever I see him, I am reminded of the movie batman. Remember Joker?

Malinga missed the first two games of the world cup because the Srilankan team Manager misplaced the keys of the animal cage.

How ever the Indian team hasn't found a cage to lock our very own Appam  Dosai Chappathy(ADC) @Gopumon. He was given an opportunity in the first match of the world cup where he was thrashed to all parts of he ground by the Bangladeshi Batsmen. Now he is warming the bench for team India. Occasionally he is used to carry the drinks to the field and when a batsman needs a change of bat, our Gopumon runs to action. A few years ago, he happened to watch the movie Tamil movie Gajini and fell in love with Surya's hairstyle. Immediately he attempted to have a similar hairstyle. The outcome was horrendous. Reports say that Harbajjan Singh would often get irritated seeing our Gopumon's face that he even slapped him on field. See the picture for yourself. In a team that boasts of the Sachins, Sehwags, Yuvarajs and Dhonis, we also have Gopumon. Even earth has a black hole.
I certainly would love to watch Sachin scoring his 100th International 100 on the Big finals against the Srilankans. I also would love to watch Sehwag go crazy against Malinga. I would love to see Yuvaraj's towering sixes of Murali and Mendis. It would be a treat to watch Harbajjan's Dhoosra and Nehra's Theesra. I would also love to see Munaf Patel's face with a baby-bottom shave.

Model Poonam Pandey has expressed her desire to bare it all if India wins the world cup. She has decided to do a private show for the Indian cricketers if the men in Blue win the world cup. I hope that Bajji would give her a tight slap so that she doesn't attempt cheap stunts to garner attention in the future. She should be locked inside a room along with Navjot Singh Sidhu and Arnab Gowsami and they should give her a 24 hours non-stop pepsi talk.
In the mean time, the Srilankan think tank has called in the experienced Chaminda Vaas for the final match against India. Chaminda Vaas who was known for his toe crushing yorkers against Left handers will be an apt opening partner for Malinga. India has 3 mainline left-handers in the batting line-up (Gambhir, Yuvi and Raina). Both the bowlers are really great in the slog overs also. Considering India's poor form in the last batting power play, this is a wonderful move made by the Srilankan selectors. Though Chaminda Vaas has a shorter run up, he still has venom in his deliveries. Its gonna be the best bowling attack vs the best batting line-up.

But we need not worry because we have Rajanikanth(my inspiration) in the Line-up. ( A text-message that I  create now)

virat “K”ohli,
z kha”N
m pa”T”el,
r as”H”win
(I am not blowing my own trumpet....ok I just be wanna be with my thalai, inspiration and every thing )

Sreesanth would also do the victory lap along with the Team if India wins the world cup.

BTW, Poonam Pandey has already kept her promise [link]
