The Softer Side of Me ..

Panchhi, nadiya, pawan ke jhonke ..
Koi sarhad na inhe roke ..
Sarhadein insaanon ke liye hain …
Socho tumne aur maine kya paaya insaan hoke ..?

      Asha Patel and Khalid Mumtaz must be wondering this. Asha Patel along with her friend Ayesha Sharma was caught by BSF while trying to cross Line of Control. The story turned out that Asha was trying to cross the border to meet her love Khalid Mumtaz as both were denied Visa by authorities.
      Asha says she married Khalid over the phone. Asha met Khalid on the Internet five years ago and they fell in love. They met on the Wagah border for ten minutes earlier this year. Both tried to get Visa but couldnt avail. So Asha decided to cross the border without visa and passport, but unfortunately she was spotted by Army. “We may not be able to meet at the India-Pakistan border but we can still meet at other places. They cannot stop us from meeting,” Asha said

       Boy … Thats inspirational .. 😀 … Someone on the other side .. Are you listening …?

Hmm .. It began like this … I got a call on my phone .. This a gal from BSNL asking “Sir you applied for DataOne some time ago .. Do you still want it ..” .. I said “Hell yess !! .. Tell me whom to kill .. Just tell me … ” … I had submitted the application in January .. and was waiting for them to provide a connection at my home .. Anyways .. She told me to submit yet another form .. I said okay .. So I submitted another form on Monday … And guess what after four days two lineman came with ADSL modem .. They didnt know how to install it though .. I told them its Okay … I can do it alright … So ..I configured it myself only to find that my account wasnt activated yet …

So I called their helpline and asked them whats the problem… They thought that I must’ve misconfigured the device, and told me they’ll come to my home and see what the problem is .. And after some 20 minutes, they were at my home .. And I used to blast BSNL’s crappy customer service … Anyways .. Those JTOs also didnt know anything about NAT , Routers and networking .. They just had manual and they set matching my router’s settings with the one in their manual .. Which were allright … So they admitted the problem must be at the exchange … Anyways they said they’ll see what to do at exchange the next day .. In the morning they called that some equipments werent working at the exhcange so it will take some time to get my account activated ..  I said okay .. I have waited for almost a year .. I can wait for a day too .. Khair .. in the evening when I reached home, it was activated, they’d called me on my cell too …

And so finally I got broadband .. Althought the plan is not uncapped, (1 GB) its unlimited from 2 AM to 8 AM .. And I am nocturnal already .. 😛 .. So, I am gonna download a lot of stuff now .. 😀 … But .. I’ll miss saying “Sancharnet Sucks” now and then …  😛

Now to ladies’ driving … I swear if someone will ask that are you biased against the females, I’ll tell them “Hell NO .. But that doesnt include their driving skills” … I mean who give these gals driving license …?? There should be a new type of driving license for ladies .. And there must be a sign for vehicles being driven by ladies … So that people can know that its a female driver and hence they should be cautious when they are aound ..

This happened yesterday .. I went to bank to make a draft .. I parked my bike near Library and was walking to bank when someone crashed into me … Annoyed, I turned back to find a gal driving a Sunny (Yeah .. they still exists) … Immediately she started “Sorry sorry .. The brakes arent working properly .. Blah blah .. ” Anyways I said its okay but drive carefully .. Then I crossed the road and went to the bank and after some 20 or thirty minutes, when the draft was ready, I came out of bank … Now when I was walking to Library someone again knocked me .. This time I was angry .. Turned and guess what I find .. This was the same gal on the same sunny .. Grr …I asked her who gave her my supari …? She was like ” I am very sorry and all” .. Yeah I said ..” You should be sorry that you couldnt kill me in two attempts .. But you are on the wrong vehicle .. You should bring atleast a car to kill me .. I wont die under a Sunny … ” and more things like that .. The gal almost started crying so waved her away ..

But from then I am still looking back to see if she is after me with her Sunny or not .. Phew .. Even Rajiv Gandhi didnt survive third attempt ..

Hahhaa .. What say ..?

Sheesh .. How on Earth they made that website.. Its more like Cartoon Network website .. All Flash driven .. Come on man .. you are a news channel ..  I tried to send feedback .. and this is what I got .. :

Today was the Grand Finale of Fame Gurukul on SET … !! As most of the people had guessed the winners are Qazi Tauqeer and Rooprekha Banerjee .. I watched the final amidst of those boring advertisements .. It was just okay show … Now I am waiting for Indian Idol 2 .. !

I supported Rex though .. 😦

Not me of course ..!! .. A certain Kunjilal in Betul district of MP predicted that he will die today at around 3 to 4 PM. .. Its an irony that today wives take a fast of “Karva Chauth” to protect their husbands from death and misfortune .. People gathered at Kunjilal’s residence and organized “bhajan and keertan” there .. Another irony is that news channel started speculation and polls on whether he will die or not till 4 pm …

And after 4 Pm, he announced that now his life is safe as planets are now in favour of him .. What a stageshow .. It was all cooked up from start ..  .. But I didnt like attitude of the press …
