Music

June 12, 2012

Music – it just does something to you, doesn’t it? After a long hard day, where you spent every minute trying to curb your inner werewolf to come out and shred the population around to pieces (too graphic, substitute by –‘very tiring hard day’). You drive back home thanking God that you survived one more day in office and as you unwind and put those headphones on, gradually every note coming out of that iPod melts the day out of you.

It just your best companion, a wait in a long queue doesn’t matter that much if you have all your favorite songs, decent battery charge and your ear buds, time flows seamlessly. You are transported to that dream world where you are humming along, air banding your favorite beats or pretending to play the guitar solo, that’s just so awesome. It doesn’t matter people around might be thinking that you are attacked by bunch of bees or having a seizure.

You can always find music that would act as a catalyst to the kind of mood you are in, the sad songs when you are down, the Hard Rock when you are pumping Iron, the Pink Floyd’s when you are high, the Club music when you want to go crazy; you throw a challenge every time and every time Music delivers. I always put some music when I want to think hard about something, it provides me that detachment from the world that emits the peace required to think straight and be objective.

How many of us have gone through that period after a breakup where we sulk for days listening to the saddest of the songs present and metamorphose into a modern devdas or that time when we are getting the farewell from school or college and everybody is singing along hand in hand to ‘Yaaron’ or ‘Yaad ayenge who Pal’ or when you see it’s raining outside, you automatically start humming some rain song you have etched in your mind.

Music provides us that medium when we are short of words to express something or when we want to make somebody feel special when words alone won’t do or the joy inside wants to transcend out in harmony. It speaks your language, it mirrors your emotions, it flows with your frequency.Every time when you have your headphones on; Music becomes you.

  “One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.” ~ Bob Marley

Exile of 8 Months

The Cold Haven

October 4, 2010: This is the date I posted my last entry in My Blog ‘Verbosity’. Verbosity was suppressed with some other dominant happenings in my life I guess (No Guys, I dint get married; but I do agree that is one event that is ultimate murderer of a Man’s Verbosity or more basic sense called speech). As I had shared with you guys I am an IT professional, so like any IT guy who does ‘Tapasya’ to get the Nirvana called H1B. Now Before you guys confuse it with H1N1 flu virus, let me clarify it is the work visa for USA, but most of you might be knowing it as it gather quiet a lot of news space in India.

Now as usual I have gone on a Tangent, so in short I got a H1B visa and I flew some 16 hours to the so called land of opportunities USA in November and got tangled in the coveted Client – Service Provider relationship taking most of my time. But After my birthday on May 15th realized that why did I give up one thing I loved (Blogging) due to the work pressures of sheer laziness, here I am again trying to dust myself from the ground, opening the beautiful creation MS Word and trying to pen down my feelings.

The last six months have been different to say the least, I am in one of the most Cold states (It’s a understatement for sure with-40 Deg temperatures) of US called Minnesota, saw snow first time in my life and after a point of time it was like I only saw snow in my life. God it is only Indians I guess who can survive in extreme weather, I still remember how the foreigners go red and dehydrated in Indian heat. But I see around and I see ample Indian crowd moving around and living lives as if they were always accustomed to snow for good 7-8 months a year.

I really like the comfort and the calmness in life here, how well it is supported by well laid Infrastructure and basic amenities. I just dream it would become the same in India some day. I am not getting anything more in mind right now to write, but this post was more a promise to myself that I would start blogging again and hope you people’s support will make that happen. Adios.

The Life Story Of My Phone

October 4, 2010

This post has been conceptualized for IndiBlogger’s “Share Life Blogger Contest” in collaboration with Tata Docomo. Tata DOCOMO has launched Alcatel OneTouch Net phone to help you share life as you live it. Go check it out !! This post is for the subtopic “If looks could kill – my phone would be a killer!”.

I bought my current phone from my first salary in 2008, It was the latest slick model at that time and made a style statement. I have it for two years now and due to the rapidly changing and evolving Cell Phone market, it has become obsolete now. And as I carry my phone around, I always feel my phone (and hence me) would be feeling so pithy and old style among all the new uber cool models. I imagine following will be the Conversation that my phone will have with the current generation:

PS: Please generously donate to help me buy a new phone, I am no more stylish and chic, you know.
