Of the dog that everybody loves...

Tall words with flowery meanings...
is what we get, when people talk about Life.
Doesn't it all, in the end, come down to this,
Finding a way to prolong your good moods and shorten your bad ones?!
You can't miss something you din't have, they say.
I wonder, again, if they underestimate the monsters 'If' and 'Maybe'.
Words that have driven people to both, hope and despair.
You know there is a reason why, guilt, of all mainstream emotions, is the most exploited.
Simple, it works.
And manifests itself in curious ways.
You misplace a mobile today and the next day you are on-time for the class.
I have been hearing a certain Mr. Modi mouthing things like, how the IPL is the baap of manoranjan and mother of all reality TV.
I object, adhyaksha! Lets not get carried away, shall we.
Its not so easy to dethrone Indian poilitics, especially when elections are around. I am sorry to inform you Mr.Modi, but you seem to have no choice but to settle for the second spot.
On the other hand, my dear readers, I would like to recommend a soap starring Obama and Clinton. Its a prime time blockbuster! No kidding.
People have been skeptical of the IPL's success.. here's why, I think, IPL will work.
-The Knight Riders actually came in to the field with gold colored hemlet and pads on.
Contrast that with the white and it kinda sums up everything IPL stands for.
-My mom thinks its cool that Ishanth and Ponting should play in the same team.
-In every drawing room fight between K-serials and News channels, IPL is likely to emerge the winner.
Ever since painting its home red, we have been left wanting and waiting.
Its been long, but its back, and with a promise - Happy To Help.
ADs are wonderful things aren't they? Whoever said commerce and creativity don't go together!!!
Often, we look back at past in embarrasement.
Grown up, have we, since then?
Or have we merely lost the capacity to appreciate that moment for what it was?
jaagthe jaagthe, ek umr kati ho jaise,
jaan baaki hai, magar saans ruki ho jaise,
koi fariyaad, teri dil mein dabi ho jaise,
tune aankhon se, koi baat kahi ho jaise,

har mulaakat mein, mehsoos yehi hota hai,
mujhse kuch, teri nazar, poonch rahi ho jaise.

Movie-Tum Bin
Music-Nikhil Vinay
Singer-Jagjit Singh
Lyrics- Faiz Anwar

There is a thing about lines like these,
if you don't read them right, it just spoils all the fun.
It's the pause, stupid!!!

(in case that rings some muted bells; Yes, it is inspired from the 'It's the economy, stupid!'.)
