Rajnikanth the Super Star

Over this last month I have received many many messages and seen even many status updates on Rajnikanth the Super Star....!!!

I am an ardent fan of this guy who is GOD in most parts of India

I posted this image as its an attempt by one such ardent fan to actualize one such message.

"You don't Google Rajnikanth...You Rajnikanth Google"

Some more crazy jokes :

  • Google won’t find Rajnikanth because you don’t find Rajinikanth; Rajinikanth finds you.
  • If you Google search ‘Rajnikanth getting kicked’, you will generate zero results. It just doesn’t happen.
  • If you spell Rajanikanth wrong on Google it doesn’t say, “Did you mean Rajanikanth?” It simply replies, “Run while you still have the chance.”
  • Rajnikanth’s email id is gmail@rajnikant.com

Dog's Sense

An experience shared by my Friend Kartik. This happened to him in Chennai, where he works for an IT firm. What he saw and experienced simply left him awestruck. It happened like this

“A dog and a flock of fully grown people (Humans) including him were trying to cross a road. The Traffic signal glowed GREEN and so the vehicles began to move. Surprisingly most people also wanted to cross the road and they didn’t even bother about the speeding vehicles or the damn signal. Whereas, the dog analysed the situation by seeing the vehicles moving and simply stepping back onto the pavement, without crossing the road with these so called BUSY Humans who are on the run most of the time. The Dog simply waited for the Vehicles to completely halt and the signal to glow Red d then it simply in a jolly way raced across the road and then down the street. Kartik was just so glad that he noticed the DOG and how it kept itself away from unnecessary danger and that he could keep his life secure. He felt so awful that even the Street Dogs have begun to understand the Traffic Rules and Regulations that was designed for the safety of us Humans.

It sounds very atrocious, but then that is a very crude fact that, most individuals don’t even have the basic sense that which these Street Dogs have developed over the years on how to cross a road.

Some pointers to that we need to keep in mind while CROSSING ROADS are

  1. Wait for the traffic signal light to go Red for the Vehicles.
  2. Wait for the traffic signal light to go Green for the Pedestrians.
  3. Always use the Foot path while walking on the road.
  4. Always use subways, footbridges, islands, zebra, pelican and traffic light crossings.
  5. Make sure you can see clearly along the roads in both directions and that drivers can see you clearly.
  6. Listen very carefully in case something's coming that you can't see from where you're standing.
  7. When you cross the road make sure you're concentrating! It's easy to get distracted if you're listening to music on your headphones, or chatting and texting on your mobile.
  8. Walk straight across the road - don't run! It increases the chances of getting Mowed Down.

    Happy and Safe Walking...... Enjoy......!!!

    Notice: Exams Cancelled

    “Tere Mooh me Ghee Shakkar” is only what I would say, when someone called up or ran in to inform that the exams have been cancelled. 

    Examinations are among the few crazy things that have been invented/discovered by mankind, apart from Jumbee Bunjing, Scuba Diving, Mountaineering, Stunt Biking to name few more.

    Every time an exam cropped up...  the atmosphere in the college would completely change with the canteens and the college corridors beginning to buzz and the overcrowding at the xerox stores. New faces would venture into places in the university they would have otherwise never known like the LIBRARY. In spite of all the preparation that I would have made for the examinations, all I would want is for the exam to get cancelled for some reason or the other...

    Some Crazy reasons that would cloud my mind .....

    1.       World War III
    2.       Death of the Teacher or Principal or any of their relative.
    3.       Somebody bombing the university.
    4.       Curfew/ Strike/ Bandh.
    5.       Prime Minister or President’s Death.
    6.       Earthquake
    7.       Flash Floods
    8.       Some Storm/ Cyclone/ Hurricane
    9.       Paper Leak

    Hope you guys also had some funnier, creepier and dangerous excuses for Cancelling your Exam.

    All I have learned and picked up from all these experiences of giving exams is just that every day is some test an exam in itself; that I have to keep continuously fighting it day in day out and moreover be ready to always hit the road running.

    Chaddi...!!! He he...!!!

    Our favourite metaphor during graduation days “CHADDI”. The entire gang would use it always and everywhere. Most of it would be when someone starts bragging, boasting about one self or the moment one starts talking about studies or beautiful girls. Only one word would suffice the entire argument “CHADDI”. It would simply mean –

    “Tu aaj chaddi pehen k hai kya, agar pehna hai to zyada mat faila usse.. Fatt Jayegi.”

    (Have you worn your underwear today..?? If you have then don’t stretch it beyond limits, it will tear apart.)

    When someone would say that he is gonna top the exam, the shout would be CHADDI again.

    While playing pool if someone goes for a wild shot, the shout would be CHADDI again.

    When attempting a long range free kick all the players would only say CHADDI.

    This metaphor would like keep us all on our toes. It simply got us all into the challenge mode, wherein we would actually strive to do only those things that others thought was beyond our CHADDI.

    If at all anyone talks about a beautiful girl in college, the shout would be CHADDI again. I always felt that it’s much better to at least make an attempt to get things right than to accept fate or whatever other people have to comment about these issues. One would hear comments like – Bhai, ladki bahut hi sundar hai, terese nahi pategi. Or say Bhai, yaar bahut zyada padaku ladki hai, pyar vyar me nahi padegi. These girls would not be interested in being friends too. But then it’s all about at least letting the girl know how much feelings you have for her or even to just be friends. ‘One will surely have to go beyond one’s Chaddi to be with the best.’

    We would keep a continuous smile on our face. I remember the time when our 12th board results were out, my friends were actually singing and dancing near the display board, while everyone thought they were among the toppers in college, what they dint realize was that these guys were actually celebrating failure. ‘They hadn’t passed the exams but they still had the courage to go way beyond their CHADDI and celebrate and enjoy.’

    Oh yeah Chaddi... was used again when I told my gang that I am going to start BLOGGING.

    I never got stuck with what someone else believed, if all was well within me I always was game for it and give it my best shot full on. It was all about setting my own trends and wearing CHADDI’s of my size and stretching every limit of it to win”.

    The very reason I blogged this was just simply cos the gang’s CHADDI so reminded me of the way I go about my life, by being game for anything and everything and to live my life without regrets whatsoever.

    Go India Go

    Amazing Grit, determination and watta desire to WIN. Some display of temperament and character by Laxman, Ishant and Ojha. Man oh man.... wickets kept falling in heaps and in regular intervals.... I was sitting on the edge of my seat... wondering wats in store..... a hopeless cut shot by Sachin and den the crazy run out of Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Harbhajan playing a clueless shot.... but then with loads of run required to win.... it was Laxman and Ishant who came to the party... both of them just kept pushing on and itching closer to the winning score.  Both of them, fighting it on like the injured horses in a battle. Never say never die attitude. Whoaaaah... m simply ecstatic n elated. What a partnership finally with their backs to the wall to simply kick some serious australian ass.

    The bowlers both Zaheer and Ishant had set the match up beautifully with some amazing display of fast bowling by steaming in really fast and hitting the deck and the right areas to get the necessary movement. Ishant’s spell of 2 overs was crucial where he picked up 3 wickets in a space of 12 balls.

    If at all anything could have stopped us from winning it was not the bowling by Australia or their Fielding... It surely was the Umpiring Errors by both Billy and Ian Gould who had a pretty sad outing this time around.

    Some of the crucial moments in the match
    • Run Out of Ponting – Brilliant Raina at work
    • Great fielding by the close in fielders for India
    • Blazing quick fire 50 plus by Sehwag
    • The wisket of Sachin at 98 changed the course of the Indian innings
    • The irritating decision to give Dhoni caught out in the slips by the blind 3rd Umpire.
    • Breaking the first wicket partnership of the aussies in the second innings.
    • Gambhir given LBW, another pathetic decision by the umpire with the score then at 0/1
    • Crazy Cut shot by Sachin, clueless flay by harbhajan, pathetic running between the wickets getting Dhoni out
    • But then Ishant’s and VVS’s gritty display of sheer determimnation to dig it out at the center and grind out a victory inspite of being injured.

    By the end of it all, my heart beats went up quite a few notches. Simply one heck of a match, gruesome and nail biting stuff with some kind of a cliff hanging challenge. I Just loved every minute of it simply because India came out worthy winners at the end.

    Now we have enough belief to say that our Tail enders are also Gritty and are no mere Push overs. Zaheer, Bhajji, Ishant and Ojha... Great Job Guys.

    Some true Team India Spirit. Go India Go.

    Towing Van... What a Terror

    I was speeding home on my bike as I didn’t want to get drenched in the rain. But the down pour suddenly began and so I had to find shelter to escape, so did many other people. We were all waiting for the downpour to stop. As we all had just ran in to save ourselves getting drenched, we dint actually check “how we had parked our bikes or where we had parked our bikes”.

    That was when, a towing van was coming in our direction, and it began to slow down very near to where the bikes and scooters were parked. A few guys screeched Oh Shit.. Towing Van and began to run towards their vehicles just to save it from getting towed and not having to pay a fine, seeing this almost everyone followed. Everybody reached their vehicles and while leaving they heard the Constable in the Van shout – “Oye Chotu, Garma Garam Chai le aaa jaldi se.”

    I felt so Dumb n Stupid that day and so did many others there.

    That was when I realised
    •          Policemen are also susceptible to Garam Chai also and not Alcohol alone.
    •         Rain or no Rain Chai wale k paas vehicle is safe from getting towed & that these
    • .       Policemen also are Human Beings after all.
