Offline but still not on line!!

Well I am a gizmo freak or to put it rightly, I am a computer freak. I am addicted to it, especially for net surfing. Since I go crazy for things so whenever I get to know about some new thing which I haven’t heard about, my first reflex action is to search about it on net. This exactly fit like a glove for novels. And now, when I am introduced to the concept of eBooks (u must be thinking what a dumbo this gal is, she got to know about eBooks now?) by a new friend of mine, this mania has reached its extreme. T.V. is no problem for me as I am neither a movie buff nor that fanatic about T.V. shows. So only problem is computer related. With exams, just two weeks from now, I was worried that this craziness would be very harmful for me & this will detour me from my path. What path? Since the graph of my aggregate percentage is falling so this time I have decided to get a decent percentage, so that this graph becomes constant.

So as a solution to this problem I had made a resolution not to use net for two weeks, at least, not complete abolition of computer, since it can be fatal for a person like me who is suffering from DISCOMGOOGOLATION. Now what the heck is this? This is a phobia related to the stress experienced at being unable to access the internet. Really, I get stressed out when I am not able to use internet. I did so for one week & from now I am again online. You can’t imagine how I was feeling being offline for one whole week. It was just one week & I feel I was offline for ages. To my relief, I had few eBooks so it wasn’t that bad.

Now taking about that problem, I was offline but still not online for studies. I have started but not that well. Still it’s good, as something is better than nothing.

It's only Words!!

“It’s only words & words are all I have to take your heart away”
Well I really don’t intend to take your heart away with my words because I am not a witch. Well let me imagine how I would look in a witch’s getup. All I need is a witch’s hat which is somewhat conical type, a witch’s gown probably black or grey in color & a broom stick. Hey wait, still two things are missing, that curly hair & big crooked nose. For that curly hair, I would have to give myself a 440volts shock (after which I’ll be residing in heaven or hell, chances of hell are more) & for that big crooked nose, I would have to undergo rhinoplasty. Ah ha!! Here’s a perfect witch!!
Jokes apart!! It’as a great composition by boyzone, as you put it rightly.( I am talking about “it’s only…..” song not that witch’s getup)
“So this post is about boyzone”, that’s what you are thinking right. Nah!! Wrong guess. I don’t know much about boyzone, let alone this song.
“About western music”, again wrong. I am not that crazy about western music, though I like quite a few western songs that really touch my soul.
“Then surely about music”, no my dear, again you are wrong. Of course, I do love music, well who doesn’t. For me, nothing is like all time favorite; any song that touches my soul becomes my favorite, though I am very crazy about Punjabi sad songs. People say they suck, but for me, they rock.
“Then what this post is about?”
This post is about words. Yes, you read it correctly, its “words”.
Supposing, speech wasn’t bestowed to mankind then what this world would be like? Well, not that mind twisting riddle, because still we would have the invention called writing. And again suppose if speech & this amazing invention called writing is missing, then? Well, really very hard to imagine, because then even novels & blogging would be missing & how I am supposed to live without them. Damn right!! Words got that power. It’s becoming more of an essay stuff regarding writing & speech so let me shift my gear.
Words, some spoken, some unspoken, which really made a difference in your life. Just look behind, stir the soup of memories of past & you’ll find even without spices it is giving that aroma. You’ll surely recollect enormous words, each associated with a moment that you can’t forget so easily. Some lovely words, some kind words, some harsh words, some stupid words, some meaningful words, all so amazing & special to you. You may forget people, but not those words associated with them. Like there are hundreds of nick names my encyclopedia (my cousin) has given me. My elder sis invents words herself. Really you won’t find them in any dictionary because she has invented them herself. There is a big list of words that I can’t forget & the recent list includes
1) Mujhe kya sapna aana tha (it reminds me how cutely, innocently yet with a perfect blend of mischief, someone can use words)
2) Arabian nights( a secret)
3) Dignity (it reminds how sometimes I act like I am off my head)
4) Lenient (how people return for your good deeds)
5) helpful (it would always remind me of my friends)
6) mujhe vo accha aa raha tha (childhood)
7) mujhe mil nhi raha (how dumb someone can be)
8) jai mata di (how funny someone can be)
9) jo (my favorite novel & a friend)
10) top 12 (my college life)
Each of them is associated with a story that I can’t forget.
So what words are in your list?

Just me!!!

Well,, it must be clear from the posts in my blog that I am a self obsessed person. I love myself,, no doubt there are many things that I don't like about myself but still I love myself.


It's like I am praising myself so here are some testimonials (from orkut) from my friends (adulation from others) so that you may get to know that others also praise me (LOL) & of course my comments on them. So, here they go
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
This one from FRIEND 1:
"It always feel good 2 write about ur best friends but for someone special like Vandana, it feels great. She is one of the few persons who are close to my heart.She is a very warm & friendly person.She is broadminded,bold,confident & has a great leadership quality,i must say.Her caring ,lovable & down to earth nature has brought me closer to her.....I'm a fan of her beauuutifulll eyes,long hair & great personality. One thing dat I must mention is that, she is verrry helpful & I'm not the only one 2 say this; she is famous for helping others in their assignments.She is always there for friends.She can't say NO 2 anyone......She always keep her word.She has all dat is required to be a complete girl...... She do lose her temper sometimes but control herself well as soon as she realizes....She is blessed with a very kind & loving heart... Girl u r a darling ..Luv u always.May u reach all the milestones of life!!!!!!!We have been friends for two years now and hope our friendship last forever....................."

My comments:
Well this one is from the person whom I admire the most. She is so sweet that she can't see any flaw in others so she has scribbled only my qualities in this testimonial. But it’s true that I am helping, caring, broadminded & confident, & of course little bit short tempered.
"Great personality",, all I can say about this is LOL.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This one from FRIEND 2:

First testimonial by her:
“Well VANDANA d frst thng dat cms to ma mind wen i thnk of her is ASSINGMENTS..... to elaborate.....well pple shes d one gurl in our class who manages to make all d assignments in our class.......nd her poor sheets get tired by gettng photostated again nd again nd again......
Coming to other thngss shes is one of d most gud natured girl i ve evr met...evr ready to help u...upto ne extent....apart frm dat shes extremly friendly,funny nd fun to b wid,
To talk of her looks well, shes tall , slim , beautiful (NATURAL BEAUTY AT ITS BEST) , nd yea i js lov her long hair....


Vandana i wanna tell u dat ur beauty lies in ur simplicity......so plz b as u r...
nd yaa keep up d gud work...( i mean d assignments)
GOD BLESS U...”


Second testimonial by her:


"this is d second testimonial m writing 4 vandana jo(dats wt i call her)..she is one of d most sweetest person i ve evr met...extremely helpful..carin...nd gr8 to hang out with..
kabhi kabhi she seems to be ikdum mature type..intelligent bt sometimes she is lik totally d opposite ... careless nd childish...bt any which way she is equally likeable.
her beauty lies in her simplicity and hardwork.
also she is a gr8 writer i follow her blog almost regularly ..!!
v always hv a gr8 tyme wenevr v go shopping together..v literally hv a blast..

vandana jo , baby b d way u r
b brave and powers will come to ur aid..

My comments:
This is again from the person whom I admire a lot. In the first testimonial she has mentioned a lot about assignments & rest is the same. Helping, caring, yes I am. Sweet, yes I am but not the sweetest. Sometimes, I am too careless & childish & she has pointed out this which nobody else has mentioned. Simplicity? Yes I believe in simplicity. If I have to define myself in terms of simplicity, then the phrase that describes me the best is "simplicity of appearance but complexity of thoughts". Hardwork? LOL, but since I love to be busy, others confuse it with hard work. And yeah, I love hanging out with friends. Great writer? You tell me……..
---------------------------------------------------------

This one from FRIEND 3:
"hmm...this onez 4 u sweetie..........
shez such a sweet, cute n charming person...........
she is a lovely person n even a more lovely friend......

u cant find nething in her wich would b dipressing........
she enjoys every moment of her lyf wid full flushed enthusiasm...........

b as u are n believe me....u'll definitely touch the sky one day.........

My comments:
Charming & cute?? Beauty? LOL+LOL+LOL………….up to infinity. But yes as I said earlier, I am a very friendly, helping & caring person.
"intelligent person(cleared up her xams in 1st attempts)" ,,,, again LOL to that. Only a few days must had been passed after I received this testimonial, when I got my first backlog & after 8 months I got second backlog,, so what intelligence??
Yes I do enjoy a lot because I just live for the day.
-----------------------------------------------------------
This one from FRIEND 4:
"Ye lo testimonial yar?
khush rhooo
4 ME :ISTLY HR NAME Z JSSSSSS ROCKINNNN yarrrr
shez d 1 whu zz ready 2 mass bunk nytime bt stll topz in xams like me?
hr potential can b well seen inG.D.z n various class meetinzzz?
as a klass mate shezz adorable,kind n a sincere human beung
1-VE pt about hr z=
shezz vry short tempered bt nt more dn me....
at lassss i wish hr a BRIGHTFUTURE in life?
diz all i 9 about hr/
gud lck 2 u dr"

My comments:
Till now, I don't understand,, what this guy finds rocking about my name??? Maybe he finds something rocking in my surname. Well, now I am not that much ready for mass bunks, but still when there is a need for mass bunks (what a joke, there isn’t ever a need for that), I am always there for convincing others. "Tops in exams" a sarcastic comment or I can say a good joke. My potential,, very much true. And since I am in TOP 12(what sense? Don’t ask), so I have to be there in class meetings. Adorable & kind? I think I am. Short tempered? Who knows this better than this guy as once I had a fight with him because he accidently hit my friend, and when it comes to my friends, I can go absolutely mad & can do anything.
----------------------------------------------------
This one from FRIEND 5:
"fool but wise,
wicked but caring,
psychic but stable,
illogical but rational,
bad but nice.

Conclusion:
The most foolish but the cleverest one.
The worst one but nicest of all."

My comments:
This one is written by my cousin-cum-friend who is with me right after 14 hours of my birth so he knows me better. Sorry, no comments on this testimonial.
------------------------------------------------------
This one from FRIEND 6:
"****VANDANA $LATHIA********
ROYAL RAJPUT PRINCESS
ONE CANNOT RESIST HER CHARM

This gal has everything, she is brave, bold, outrageous n an impeccable pal.she is d 1 ho comes to hlp u without ne terms n cond.
she has a royal heart & and spend money like anything.In our class nebody hvng ne prblm go for her. she can do nething for her frnds
she took no time to even fight for her buddys,one day a chap in our class was playng cricket n we all were taking lunch n ball suddenly stike me n
she started fighting with her like ne thing n i was so happy at that time to see her lve for me.besides of her girlish look she is mor like a tomboy
n i admire hr for dat . her only bad quality ye apne mom dad ko lootti hai
in d end i want to say dat
D MOUNTAINS MAY FALL
D OCEANS MAY DRY
BUT OUR FRNDSHP WILL NEVER DIE"

My comments:
Well absolutely right, I am brave, bold & outrageous, being a Rajput, I ought to be. But I am not impeccable, I admit that. Helping, yes I am. This is the friend for whom I fought with friend 3. Tomboy? Yes I am a bit like that. Spendthrift? Yes I am but not that much.
---------------------------------------------------
This one from FRIEND 7:

"vandana..wel..u cn cal hr my childhood friend...
shez very friendly n lovable...she has a very confident personality..
if she has decided sumthn u cn't change hr decision....
shz a typical "RAJPUT" girl....very beautiful n traditional.......
n one more thing...shez very helpful..i usually call hr "JAGATMATA"..as
shez always ready 2 help everyone......
jst wanna say vandana..u r simply d BEST......."

My comments:
This is from the person whom I admire a lot. Friendly, helping, confident,,yes I am. Rajput,, of course a true rajput.
----------------------------------------------


This one from FRIEND 8:
"VANDANA ....................... is really a sweet mast n happy-go-lucky type gal who knw wht she want n wht not. N if she have decided 2 achieve sumthing ,she try her best 2 achieve tht at any cost.
shezzzzz bold n gotta loads of personality n a gr8888 sense of humour.
intelligence,careness,sweetness,friendliness n last but not the least silliness thesezzzz all qualities r in her blood.
she is the one of the person on whom i have blind faith...n sure tht she will never ever ditch me or forget me"

My comments:
I am happy-go-lucky type & once I have decided to get something nothing can change my mind (not applicable for studies), actually I am too stubborn. Personality, LOL. Of course I won't ditch any of my friends.
--------------------------------------------------
This one from FRIEND 9:
“one testi is nt sfficnt 4 me.................. 2 write bout........... her
my frst imprsion of hr ws dat of "A FULL OF LIFE TYPE OF GAL",......AND she z still as well nw........... shez so mch enrgtic..........really she deservs 2 b r CR.........

My comments:

Not boost,,,,,,,,,,,,,it’s………you guess, but my friends know that!!, well I am CR,,if not official then actually acting one,,along with my friend…helful,, again a big yes!!,,daring ,,,very much.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------


There are three more testimonials which are a perfect work of copying & pasting not personalized for me so I excluded them.
-----------------------------------------------


Well, I must say I don't deserve all this adulation but at least 99% of this.
Ok ok, 80% of this.
Now please don't raise your eyebrow like that.
Alright 70%
Ok then 60%
Please!! Not less than that
Oh just come on that is justified
60% settled.

Happy New Year!!

So here’s the first post of this year. Well, finally we have bid a farewell to 2008, quite a busy year for me, don’t know about others. I am not in the habit of making New Year resolutions but this year, as a trial I have made some resolutions. Let’s see for how long I can work on these.
1) This year I’ll try to be more cool & polite with others, especially with family members. With friends, I keep my cool generally.
2) As I always say, live life king size, so this year also, I’ll follow the same,, lots of fun & masti. Well, I guess it’s not a resolution He He He
3) I’ll devote some time to studies also. I really need to get good marks this time.
4) This year I won’t actually care about others’ thinking. Even now, I don’t care much but this year I won’t care that much also. I’ll do whatever I want.
5) No expectations from others, not even a bit.
6) I’ll try to keep things within myself only, no sharing with others.
7) I won’t think much about small things. “JO BEET GAYI SO BAAT GAYI”
Well, that’s enough. Let’s see how it goes.
