Went for "we the people".. and even though i thought i didnt have a clue about the topic, i was quite surprised by the response. The topic was about "women in politics- substantial or symbolic". Initially i thought it was substantial, but a friend shared her views with me, and i had to agree with her. How is it that a majority of the women in Indian politics are present by virtue of being somebody's daughter or wife.. Indira Gandhi, Sonia Gandhi, Rabri Devi and now Pratibha Patil nee Shikhawat. And some people cannot cease from making this a gender issue, when it is not. Nothing is going to change by making her the president, changes need to be make at the root level, so for all those people who are contemplating Pratibha Patil's presidency just becoz she is a women, open ur freakin eyes.

The reason for all this hype is but one, as Madhu Kishwar put it- "loyalty to the dynasty". And nobody is pointing fingers to her being derserving or not. Maybe she is deserving, but as long as there is a "maybe", other nominations come up, and she doesnt deserve to be president just becoz we want to give a women a chance. IT IS NOT ABOUT GENDER, YES WOMEN NEED TO BE ENCOURAGED TO MOVE FORWARD, CONSIDERING THE STATE OF GENDER BIASES IN THIS COUNTRY, BUT WHY MAKE THE PRESEDENCY ELECTIONS A GENDER FIGHT WHEN IT SHOULDNT BE?? she deserves to be a nomination, agreed, but not the president solely becoz she's a women.

And the debate it so not about her being a simple, purdah practising women, therefore she does not gain public appeal, none of the educated mass care about that. merit and only merit should be a criteria. after all she's following a nuclear scientist.

apart, from all this debate things are ok. even though im very pissed off with current happenings. For the first time i dont have the upper hand in something, n im forced to play on the whims n fancies of the opposition. and i cant stand the other persons non confirmist nature, its driving me crazy and maybe im even being ignored. anyway, ive told meself im not going to care about it. after all it is trivial. so im officially moving on from here, n i actually dont care now. lets see what im in store for.

other than that, everythings great, ive started doing Yoga, so my muscles are aching but im loving the feeling. And I feel myself turning into a men-hater by the day. well, frankly im loving that too!!

I just finished cooking!! made rajma chawal, n a good salad for me! im a good girl today. but i had no idea what a sweaty affair cookin was!! *wipes sweat of forehead*

i have a feeling im being ignored!! n i wont say i dont care, becoz reasons could be 2. a) for my own welfare, becoz it just seems right that no communication happens, n we both know it.. or b) deliberately becoz i give him/her the creeps. whatever it is, the bottom line is that its happening, but in a way im responsible. not that i care too much, becoz i know its good for me in a way. i just dont want to loose out ont he friendship now that ive made 90% progress. and i SWEAR!! i dint feel a thing today. just curiousity, i swear!!! and a concious, on the spot realization!!! woooohoooo!!!

i saved myself a couple of bucks today, was gonna go for a movie but i couldnt becoz of renovation work at home, n turns out it was the worse movie of the year, "calling it horrible would be lenient.." in Saumia's words. chalo good. but im dyyiinnngg to meet them, its been ages, well just swati, but what the hell, an outing is always welcome.

i dont want to write down wat happened yest, it was disgusting and i hope the distance remains n the situations doesnt get worse, but thats it for this one. its the end this time. and yes, going to brighter and more interesting topics, i think i **** * ***** ** ********!! decrypt!!
hahaha, even though its surreal and absurd i found myself thinkin about it all night and being very punctual. but am very sure i wont pursue it further. just for some fun!

am going to eat my salad! doing no excercise these days! :(:(

"How long before I get in?
Before it starts, before I begin?
How long before you decide?
Before I know what it feels like?
Where To, where do I go?
If you never try, then you'll never know.
How long do I have to climb,
Up on the side of this mountain of mine?
All that noise, and all that sound,
All those places I got found.
And birds go flying at the speed of sound,
to show you how it all began.
Birds came flying from the underground,
if you could see it then you'd understand"

Why is a "thunderstorm", according to many orkut profiles, a turn on?? and not only me, soo many people(read: women) find thunderstorms exciting? the answer lies in gender games and finding Akshay Kumar extremely sexy in a pink kurta. No matter how much we fight on sensitive feminist issues, the truth is that yes, we're equal, but generation after generation women have had a soft spot for what u'd call "masculine men".. those with a zeal to save the women in their lives from all difficulties.. sigh. 3 sentences that guarentee weak knees for a girl is "don't worry, im there now, i'll take care of it all." those with the ability to literally, if not otherwise, protect his woman.. have scored. and they so have:)

Which make all of it, thunderstorms, tsunamis, earthquakes a tad bit romantic, for star struck lovers, apart from disasterous. Which is also why at atleast point of our lives, we have worshiped the ever-crooning backstreet boys. Which is why we think Akshay Kumar can pull off even a pink kurta. Ofcourse this is an ambiguous topic, many might not admitt to this, many might have problems with my enhancement of stereotypes, but well bugger off, this is my blogspot remember??

Why else do we find Justin "I'll let u whip me if i misbehave" Timberlake sexy? yes, we all hate MCPs. and there a bunch of them out there. But i know loads of women who'd want, what i've started to call "the protecting factor", in their partner/boyfriend. Just one line- "baby, i'll take care of it, dont worry" or "baby, i'm there, there's no need to worry now" does wonders, doesnt it? see, im not a fan of mush myself.. but for how much longer are we going to kid ourselves. Sometimes, a few things Grandma tell us, do turn out to be true. Even though i totally dont believe in streotypes or gender discrimination/superiority, this is something i dont ignore. Call it personal choice but pansy men, (go find out definations urself) only make me laugh..

sigh, this was on observation that fascinated me, although right now im so not lookin at finding someone, this is a criteria im sure to utilise later on!

"Lights go out and I can’t be saved
Tides that I tried to swim against
Brought me down upon my knees
Oh I beg, I beg and plead
Singin’, come out if things aren’t said
Shoot an apple off my head
And a, trouble that can’t be named
Tigers waitin’ to be tamed
Singing, yooooooooooooo ohhhhhh
Yoooooooooooo ohhhhhh
Confusion never stops
Closing walls and ticking clocks Gonna,
come back and take you home
I could not stop that you now know Singin’,
come out upon my seas
Curse missed opportunities Am I,
a part of the cure
Or am I part of the disease?"

damn it! i just had to it! just had to test my patience. Okie.. not big deal.. its not as big as im making to be.
phew. passed it. sigh. just went thru pics n profile and got nostalgic... to an extent that the funny stomach feeling came back for about a second. and i deleted the window. i know there was no need for it, but well, one never learns untill they stretch themsleves to the limit.
S- R-, ur off limits of *it* for a week. untill u dont settle down. im okie, really. just need to gather myself.

okie, on to better updates.. A-007 is officially ours now, and in a month we'll be totally shifting n stuff. finally i'll get my much needed privacy!! im just verrrrrrrry jealous abt the out stations students. i mean i totally cant live without my parents but i want to!! i want to see how its like!!

"look at the stars.. look how they shine for u.. and everything u do, yea, they were all yellow, i came around, i wrote a song for u.. oh, what a thing to do, coz u were all yellow.."

had a nice day, have been listening to coldplay ever since i came back from gk.. looking at saumia today has motivated me to stick to my now, non existent fitness regime, atleast non effective. bought cute hair clips today and saumia found an adorable eraser which she's gonna gift to friend=) yes, i know, very random news.

surprisingly im not embarassed about what happened about.. erm, an hour ago.. infact now im just convinced even more that, that was a sign. I did it to check he status of my progress and when things didnt work out the way i thought they would i was relieved in a way. seriously. i cant believe i'm living this moment.. it seems soo surreal.
i hate the thought of romance, i hate mush and mostly i hattteeee the thought of being in a relationship, i've never loved my single status as much as i love it now. baah, this isnt even important.

i went to college today.. got sooo nostalgic, i almost cried, i soooo badly wanted to start going to college, i couldnt care less about the heat, thought today we were discussing our 2nd yr syllabus, sounds horrible except pop fic. (thats populare fiction).. n i hopeee ive been allotted with history instead of logic!! though the thought of studying is making me totally nervous, i want to start college nevertheless.
Never thought would get attached soooo much=)

I know its been freakin' long, just been so lazzzy.. i didnt feel like writing, with all the "misogynists" and the "football" freaks taking up all my time.. *snicker*
dont even want to talk about the job, i could seriously do with the money, but i dont know if they're going to call me back..

went to aditi's place over the weekend, had such a blast, nothing extraordinary.. no booze, none of it! and yet, such an amazing time, though the heat took a toll on us, we still managed to go out every afternoon without fail, even though im left with a lousy excuse for a "tan" =P the best part was the match making session, which paired me with all the desirable people.. muwahahah! even got paired with ahem! 3 times!! and oh, ya, how can i forget, was paired with "tharki" and um.. Mr. A if i can put it that way!! that was soooo crazy, and one night we even made list of things we want to do before turning 30, or as aditi would like to put it, before we get married. but that was serious fun, so much that now im so used to aditi's room and buffy and his attitude:) badly misssin her place and her adorable Dadi!!

obviously my fitness regime's gone for a toss, i cared two hoots about in over the weekend and somehow dragged it along till today, i.e- wednesday :( though am still working on it.. and 3 days of lazing around had gotten me to open up about details of.. surprising again, not feeling a thing about the whole thing except nostalgia, and i feel horrible for a friend who just got dumped, considering she was one of those people who's advice on a similar matter made sense.. ya, i know wat im about to say is bitchy, but all this sadness around makes no difference to me.. am uneffected!!

and quite happy coz *touchwood* finally the house deal is almost done. so if all goes good, we should be shifting to our new place in about a month max. i saw metro recently, movie touched me alright, but the music is awesommeee, have been listenin to the songs since 3 days, havent had enough of it!! badly want to see Shrek!! badly miss college and its routine, feel like a fat pig sitting at home!

oooooooooo, listened to this song by nickelback.. rockstar, funnnnnyy lyrics!!

"I want a brand new house
On an episode of Cribs
And a bathroom I can play baseball in
And a king size tub big enoughF
or ten plus me
I'll need a credit card that's got no limit
And a big black jet with a bedroom in it
Gonna join the mile high club
At thirty-seven thousand feet
I want a new tour bus full of old guitars
My own star on Hollywood Boulevard
Somewhere between Cher and
James Dean is fine for me

'Cause we all just wanna be big rockstars
And live in hilltop houses driving fifteen cars
The girls come easy and the drugs come cheap
We'll all stay skinny 'cause we just won't eat
And we'll hang out in the coolest bars
In the VIP with the movie stars
Every good gold digger's
Gonna wind up thereEvery Playboy bunny
With her bleach blond hair
Hey hey I wanna be a rockstar
Hey hey I wanna be a rockstar"
