Don't think

At times there is the need to write without thinking. You won't face a problem with writer's block or whatever it's called. It's like automatic writing. Infact the best in you is quite likely to come out and shine if you only don't stand in it's way. So, give up your foolishness by not allowing your foolishness to be routed through your thoughts. Enter the realms of wisdom.

Be thoughtless, be cool.

Beer and Brandy

It's not very usual to find a beer drinker who drinks brandy. Infact the other day I seemed to have offended a brandy drinker at the bar. I was drinking beer and not having much to talk about I was also making fun of his brandy. It's not that I don't drink brandy myself...but I certainly DO NOT drink brandy with hot water on a hot afternoon! I am appalled at the thought that such fundamental stuff is still not part of our lower KG syllabus - what's the education minister doing??

Anyways, the reason I thought I had to talk of these two drinks in the same breath (talking of breath reminds me, that no matter which one of them you had, your mom will immediately be able to smell you out and give you the dirty look...mom's don't differentiate between drinks...for them, it's all sharaab...and don't try giving her the 'doctor told me to drink brandy' BS...it'll do you no good), is because I actually ended up consuming a decent amount of absolutely chilled KF blue yesterday noon. Believe you me, I haven't stopped sneezing since this morning....damn! Hope people don't mistake the symptoms to mean swine flu!! Anyways, the point is, and this I am only telling you and I won't tell my mom for reasons stated previously, that I really need to take some brandy tonight....no BS...seriously, I need it. It's not for the high mind you, I know you don't trust me and so I emphasize, it's not for the high (though I don't mind the high, but that's secondary)...purely for medicinal value.

Here's the bigger idea that you should keep in mind: Always have extremely chilled beer...almost frozen stuff...coz everytime you do this, you are also creating an opportunity to gulp down a lil hard liquor the next day for perfectly valid reasons...people say it should be brandy but hey...if you insist that whisky cures your cold faster than brandy ever will, well so be it. Cheers!

Highway of Life

There's heavy traffic on the roads, heavier still on the net but heaviest on the highway that is life! At times I envy people who know their destination even before they hit the highway but most of us are travelers who don't know where we are going and where we want to land up. But hey, it's good fun at times.

It's actually fun till the time when one day you suddenly stop to think where the road leads to. That day it becomes less fun.

Think about it, you are traveling on this highway, enjoying the drive, whizzing past all the signs, hoardings etc. Then suddenly a thought comes to your mind, 'Dude where are you going?'. You slow down at that point in time - unsure about the answer.

Then you start thinking if you want to go to a hill station or probably a beach or maybe a remote village or maybe a bustling city. Then you watch out for the sign boards, then you stop by a person you see walking and ask, 'Dude, where does this road lead to?'. If you decide to go to a beach then you start thinking if you want to land up at the nearest beach or do you want to go to the beach where most people go on holiday or is it gonna be the lonely beach where you sit with a bottle (or crate) of beer and do some serious thinking! What have you achieved in life, what have your friends achieved, what do you want to achieve and what do you 'really' want to achieve! There, now you aren't simply out there, you are out there and going someplace.

I chose the lonely beach and the crate of beer. Whenever I think of resuming my journey, another thought comes to my mind which warns me not to drink and drive. So, I drink some more. As this goes on, the beach seems like home. Hmm...guess I have reached!!
