For lack of a better blog title, I present to you 7 different subtitles…
16 September :Happy Cup-Express.Healthy. Tasty
Something was amiss since morning. Even the regular afternoon dose of caffeine could not counteract that feeling. He concentrated hard, and ran through his chronicle for the day, nothing in particular. Contrarily he should be quite happy, getting new books is always satisfying, and that too a book for a buck, that should have made him smug. He looked across the table, to find coffee mug scribed with “Happy Cup- Express.Healthy.Tasty.”, and something, probably same thing scribed in Chinese.
Something was fuzzy and shaky inside. He was torn between in choice of his books, reading ultimate classic Joyce, and then all of a sudden reverting gears to theoretical physics of Feynman. Was that the cause of amiss thing? Probably not. Another sip of iced coffee. Oh didn’t I mention , that in this part of world they served black coffee with ice, which was all good, until your coffee gets over, and all of a sudden you are searching desperately for leftover traces among the ice cubes. Slurrrpp. Nothing…slurrp…slurrp…still nothing. Like a drowning man gasping for air, your brain knows that the content is over, yet your mind wants to get every last trickle of that black caffeine.
17 September: Moviephile?
Dude! look at my dvd collections, I’m such a moviephile.
(source UrbanDictionary) Change dvd wid torrent
Now I would have loved to review two brilliant movies that I caught over the weekend, Anurags of our time, Basu’s Barfi and Kashyap’s GOW-2. Yet how different the both films are from one another. Barfi is a romantic movie, with magical execution, amazing cinematography and adept acting. I should have told you that a beautiful cinematography and camera angles biases me, and Barfi has lot to offer with its artistic tone. The alluring, nostalgic beauty of amro Darjeeling, and the rush and art of amar Kolkata. Recently Kolkata has been muse of various movie director. The chase sequence have been executed to perfection. Barfi was spell bounding, and philistines might even find it slow, but who cares.
Coming to GOW2, I waited for eternity for film to release for nri crowd, I wonder translating all those cussing would have taken hell lot of time. Nonetheless the movie was here, in all its entirety and chutzpah.
20 September : Subtleties of human consciousness
It is quite amazing how fast a human mind can think. No? Just try to remember the fast dream sequence you have during those 10 minutes of snooze alarm. The conscious and subconscious will concoct a terrific mix for you. Yet that 7 hours of sleep would not suffice from him, and just for the sake of experimentation he walked off from his morning yoga routine. Truth be told, he was not as chirpy as his yoga days. Consequently his muscles were languid, he was more like a lazy bum, but you know how lazy and at peace goes hand in hand.
The usual running down the subway stairs, two steps at a time, might have came across as precarious to others, but he had practiced it way too long to err. Few customary prerequisites were to be followed though, don’t attempt doing this with a loose footwear. Also best is to try on deserted flight of stairs, else the inertia is too large to push an unsuspecting soul out of the way. Probably both, pushed and pusher, will land stumbling down the stairs.
24 September :Engineer at grand prix
So yeah it was an experience. The buildup for the day was going on from last few days. And when the day arrived, we were ready. It was a hot, humid afternoon in Singapore, the sun was shining, and the humidity was torturing. Yet it could not deter the enthusiasm of the fans. We all were greeted with roaring of Ferrari engines – an ongoing Ferrari championship. It was humbling to see drivers revving their Ferrari engines and I could only imagine what an F1 cars would be like.
And believe me the roar of F1 engine was amazing, and loud really loud, (its anywhere greater than 85dB, which is like 6-7 levels up from conversation noise.) F1 cars are the marvel of engineering, with V8 engines generating a horse power of around 800, with 20,000 rpm. It is amazing, right out of some science fiction.
1 October : Caffeinated Yogi
-Yoga became his new caffeine.
That has been his motto for last 2-3 weeks, early morning yoga was rejuvenating and gone were the days of gulping 300ml of black coffee early morning. Not that he detested drinking coffee, and he had started to miss his daily dose too. But this particular morning was a slow and very slow. The late night sports following, made morning late. His new caffeine did not worked today, as during a particular asana (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shavasana) he slept off. LOL.
Consequently it would take another 2 hrs to get his senses rolling, based on past records and present conditions.
The sand beneath his feet was cold and wet. He stood there, and let sand take his weight, shifting few cm down, when the wave came – a small one though- it traveled through his feet, and he was transmogrified. The air smelt of salt, the sun was setting, only complain he had of flotilla of cargo ships on the horizon. The country did not provide virgin beaches and unadulterated horizon. One could travel to its neighbours and be amazed by the sheer beauty that nature has bestowed on them.
