Time pass……..

Work was hard to find…
So, I thought of working on something mine….
(Two lines of my first poem….)

Sometimes when you are alone at home…You start something…but you cannot concentrate…Yesterday, I was alone in my house wandering here and there…searching for something I can pass time with…have a few books…but didn’t want to read anything…took out my badminton racquet… practiced a few shots which I generally do not play while in court…thought of working on my footwork…practiced for a few minutes…then…skipping…was tired after a few minutes…

So, I switched on the TV…started with the news channel…

Aaj Tak:
Aj ka prashna: Kya Bharat ke khiladi apne form main waapis aa gayein hai…?

Star News:
Kal ka poll tha: Bharat ki haar ka zimmedar kaun? A) Sehvaag B) Sachin C) Dhoni

45 % logon ne Sehvaag ko haar ka jimedaar bataya…

What the heck…? I just cannot understand why the news channels start these stupid polls…and some intellectual people respond to them…

Moved to music channel…the music channels always play the same songs…actually, if you like a particular song and you found it being played at a particular time…then u can watch it again at the same time from then onwards…

So, switched to movie channels…well, some channels play the same movies throughout the month…movie of the month means select a movie and show it for a month…Like Start One loves to play…No Entry…Kyonki Main Kabhi Jhooth Nahi Bolta…I think…these movies are the “movies of the year”….

I switched off the TV in frustration…

When I was a child…when we did not have many options on TV…we used to love everything being shown on the TV….but now…the choices spoiled everything………

“Ab kya karein…?”

I love music…just cannot live without it…So, inserted a MP3 in the player…and Kishore Kumar’s mellifluous voice was in the air…I love it…love it and love it…fell asleep while listening to the songs…..and woke up when my roommate rang the call bell…

Life would have been better if we knew what makes us happy…………………………………….

    Life would have been much much better if we did not know what would make us happy. We would have been happy wondering then… rather than regretting not having done it.

    Its actually not what makes one happy but its about the ways u can be happy in different circumstances

    Oye … nobody ever answers or responds to those bull shit polls.
    The Channels actually show what the public pulse might be….
    I understand your problem. Its just one of those days when u had a bad cold and cannot sniff@Women 🙂
    so you turn to do some things (which you are good at but may not be *interesting* 🙂 )
    thats life….you never get what you want…or rather when u get what you want you want something else.

    Abey tere jaise lucky log kam honge who get so much time. Many a time ppl think of doing N no.of things when they have time.
    And when they do get the time 🙂 they are listless like you 😀

    Life can’t be occupying all the time. If it were, you wouldn’t know what’s it like being on the other side of the road or would you! 😀
