The song doesn't really mean anything. Its you who gives it meaning.

Well, New Zealand at last.

Warning(s): This post is gonna be big. No media, only good ol' text. Good thing my chair is comfy.
This post will also be self-centered. Too much is happening in my own life right now for me to care about others'.
This post is a spur of the moment thing, so there is no specific layout. I have barely convinced myself to keep
blogging (repeatedly) and i swear, if i dont get atleast 3 comments here within a couple of days then I am gonna
quit doing this.

To begin with, I have barely gotten here, reeling from a terrible board result and repeated denials from schools for admission, right till the hour before the flight. Come on, i gave three interviews in three different schools and prepared applications through the night. Tough times.

I got admission in the three where they actually cared to interview me and the rest rejected me on the basis of board percentage alone. Let's see what happens, but the school i wanted most has refused me, and i still resent that sometimes. (read: punching a wall)

Boarding the plane was surprisingly easy this time, due to the experience we(me and my parents) had gathered from the last trip, and the various upgrades IGI airport has gone through. In fact, Thailand's airport, which was a nightmare last time due to its size and language barrier (even the pilot barely speaks english :D) was a breeze this time. Won't go into details, but the food still sucked (read frozen prawns and funny smelling lentils).

We got to Auckland on June 4. Light sunlight, great weather. Another way Auckland is better than Apni Dilli, although for no fault of its own.

Since then, we have just been taking it easy and making short trips. We explored New Zealand to quite an extent last time, and ow that my brother has got his own place, its been much more cosy. (or is it cozy? correct me if i am wrong)

Now that we've spent a week here, here's exactly what Ihave done:
1. Gone playing pool and bowling in the dead of the night.
2. Bought and sold 6 cars (Let me explain. Here's what my brother does: He buys used cars on the internet and gets them all fixed up, and sells them to someone else at a profit. Its a simple, efficient business, much easier if you have good social skills)
3. Ride shotgun in a mercedes going at 247km/h.
4. Finished Cryis and Bioshock on my bro's high end computer.
5. Gotten into a feud with my parents over calling my brother "insert bad word here"
6. Ride pillion on a Kawasaki Ninja going at 216km/h. (Believe me, its nothing like you can ever imagine. You have to hold on whoever's riding for dear life, literally. Thinking of making a video. Unbelievable, believe me.)

I am currently sitting in the computer space of The University of Auckland, typing away while my brother studies in the library. Its gonna sound like i am just exaggerating it, but this is the best university i have been to. Forget IIT and its puny little sisters, once you come here, you wont like going back.

The bike is how i got here, and i am dreading sitting on it again. Lets hope i manage to hang on.

Big wave to everyone back home, if they are reading this, which is highly unlikely, because this blog has a lower visit frequency than a frozen cave in Bolivia. Probably even lower than the cave's treasure room's.

Bye for now.

He walks alone.

He walks to his home, one that will stop being his place of residence soon, but will always be the place where his heart resides.

And suddenly, a battered Maruti screeches behind him, and bathes him in harsh light. He turns around while covering his eyes, but is too tired to confront the driver.

But then, that very moment, something he saw made it all worth it.

He turns around again, and sees this picture.

And he smiles. All the pain he felt is gone.

Yes, Mlik Man!

Tuesday, May 5, 2009 2

Recently watched two remarkable movies : Milk, and Yes Man.

Milk: You have probably heard of it. The story of the first openly gay elected member of an American public office, Harvey Milk.
the movie, as expected was skillfully made. What I hate about historicals is the way they cut through many parts of the protagonist's life without actually depicting the finer nuances in detail, just so they can accommodate a larger amount of information. Milk, surprisingly, doesn't do that. It shows every part of Milk's life in complete detail, which only increases its richness.

Homophobic people should stay away from this one, just as a warning.

Yes Man: This was quite a laugh. Story about a man who tries to turn his lonely, sad life around by promising himself to say 'YES' to every question he is asked. It feels like a rerun of Liar Liar and Bruce Almighty, but watchable nevertheless.

Thats all for now.

Before beginning, i'll point out that I will be writing in simple, metaphor-less, wisecrack-lacking english. Also, lots of brackets. If that irritates you, let me know. The reason for this is sheer exhaustion.

Today was supposed to be our big concert. (It wasn't a concert really, but our attempt at putting together a watchable gig)

The performance itself went rather well (video below). The vocals went okay, (except that MS's microphone went bad, but come on, in a school where an attempt is made to save money in every situation, that didn't surprise me) nobody's guitar went kaput, no drums were smashed, and no lights fell on our heads (believe me, it has happened).

After Boulevard of Broken Dreams, we moved on to the second song, We will Rock You. We chose the song mainly because its popular, and we needed crowd support.

Anyway, the song went...okay. With a couple of fumbles, and a botched solo at the end, in which our bass guitarist went crazy and intervened on our electric guitarist's part.

Result : Last place.
Everybody, including us, believed we would be making 1st or 2nd.
As it turns out, the "jury" (which consisted of hokey old conservative board members, who probably think rock music shouldn't exist) disqualified us because .................*wait for it*...........................................we said "You got mud on your face, You big disgrace". Wow, how dare we say mud, and disgrace in front of the school? Such profanity! Cover your ears, little children!!

Frankly, I am tired of this crap. Last year my house team was put down two places, because they sang "Breaking the Law", which gave the "wrong message" to such "disciplined children".

I can rant more, but whats the effing point? The result isn't gonna change, and this has only made me eager to leave JKPS.

I have uploaded the video on Tube, and although you can't see our faces (zoomed video), I am on the acoustic guitar and vocals, MS is on vocals (although you can barely hear him because his mike isn't working ; hate you Dhansingh, you asshole) Shreyas, the curly haired idiot, who covers me now and then is on bass, and Pawan is on electric guitar on the far right.

The video is below. Hope you have time to watch it.

P.S. I succumbed to the pressure of studies today as well. Went ahead and gave the admission test for Brilliant Tutorials, even though I pledged to spend XIth standard developing talents. Sad day, today. Sad.

I just took an IQ test. Here's the result:

Your IQ Score is: 136

Your mind's strengths allow you to think ahead of the game — to imagine or anticipate what should come next in just about any situation. Because you're equally skilled in the numerical and verbal universes of the brain, you can draw from multiple sources of information to come up with great ideas. The timelessness of your vision and the balance between your various skills are what make you a Visionary Philosopher.

In addition to your strengths in math and linguistics, you have a knack for matching and anticipating patterns. These skills and your uncanny ability to detect the underlying blueprint of most of life's situations add to your Visionary Philosopher mind. Two philosophers who share the same combination of skills you possess are Plato and Benedict Spinoza. Spinoza had insight into how things worked in the world. He could envision a future based on the patterns he saw in life, and used mathematical logic as a structure within which to present his philosophical arguments. With that base he was able to use logic to formulate his theories. Borrowing from his linguistic strengths he wrote eloquent texts and, therefore, was able to bring his philosophical ideas and structure to the rest of the world. His story exemplifies the talents that are present in the Visionary Philosopher intellectual type.

Whatever you decide to do in life, you've got a powerful mix of skills and insight that can be applied in a wide variety of ways. You can expand your mind to understand a situation. Your strong balance of math and verbal skills will help you explain things to others. For example, if you were on an archaeological dig and discovered an object, you could probably use your deductive powers to figure out not only what the object was but also how it was used. Given your ability to put things together, you are more than capable of inventing a life plan that is in sync with your perspective on how things were, how they are, and how they might be one day.

After the examination, we all went for a lil trip. Will be uploading pics soon.
