Just a talk

I'm feeling lonely now, I just wanna talk. No serious stuff, no crude philosophy, no hidden implications, no thought provoking, just a simple talk, afterall blogs are meant to exchange ideas.I have never read any book apart from glancing upon coursebook and few others. Last night I took midnight walk with Bhavesh, and then me and Vivek were talking near GF junction(not EF, its GF). I said "I wanna read a novel", but dont know which one to start with. Since I'm impatient so I wanna start with a 200-250 page book. Bhavesh suggested Harry Potter series, though it doesn't appeal me much but still I feel that I need an easy one to start. Vivek proposed 'The Alchemist', pretty good one. Its not that I'm completely ignorant about books, but I've never shown the courage and patience to finish a book entirely. So people please suggest me a good book to start with.

Sadly Orkut is blocked in our college, all those thing which are imbibed in our life are taken away by college. They don't allow chatting simply because it consumes bandwidth. What's the use of bandwidth anyway? They blocked parlis when it was getting familiar with DA-IICTians and Orkut which was so deep-rooted in our social lives. We are basically online bugs, ICTians, dwelling in e-world, thinking like a computer and yet our arms are cut. Naresh rightly said that the spice is lost. One US airlines filed a petition against Jet Airways, India that they are directly related to Al Qaeda and should not be allowed to operate in US, and their supporting evidences, guess what they say "since Jet Airways (India) Ltd was planned and started in 1991, it has been funded by Al Qaeda 'Specifically Designated Global Terrorist' Dawood Ibrahim". Firstly these developed leader countries exploit poor countries and take all their wealth away and then they accuse without proper vindication.Ironically the accuser is itself named Jet Airways, may be they are facing identity crisis.


Tonight a booze party is planned which if realized will be my first experience(apart from useless beer). Lalla the pioneer, Anna the experienced, Kunal Sengupta the host, Zubin the newbie, me the newborn and we'll find one more to set the hostel ablaze.I have heard that people do very funny things when they drink for the first time, so tonight if you are beaten up or your clothes are torn apart by me without any proper reason, just stay cool. However I always think that people get high, but they act more ... let's see if its true.
You guys know Peter leko??? The hungarian chess legend... he's on a 'commiting blunder' spree. He has put himself in 'mate in one' position in a drawn game. Poor guy...they are publishing a book What is wrong with Peter Leko?? Chalo, I wont make you feel bored anymore..signing off bbye

Vivek Pabari said...

Bad bad Amod!

Booze party! Very bad! WIthout any occassion, just to have fun. Extermely bad!

But if it was only for the sake of getting a college-life experience, it's OK. Try doing it a few more times and you will find all of us breathin down your neck.

Some more suggestions for books:
1) Da Vinci code
2) Angels and Demons
3) The class - Erich Segal
4) Monk who sold his ferrarri
5) Namesake
6) Who moved my cheese
7) Five point someone

ALl these are very interesting books and aren't voluminous. I bet you will enjoy reading each of them.

I still believe that startin with Harry Potter is good for u. ALchemist is gr8, but depends on ur perspective. ppl hu hv liked it hv liked it a lot while others didnt find it good. thr is no middle ground. btw harry potter series has a rat too.
Wht happened in the party? mayb u wud tell in ur next blog?
poor mr leko! as far as i remember he once defeated anand to get the rapid or blindfold crown, didnt he?

shikha said...

:o....u think five point smone s useless????grrr!!!...its one of my fave!!dont u think it was v practical????

amod said...

@bhavesh,wacko - I'm reading 'to sir with love' by ER Braithwaite... and i'm finding it interesting, as i've already it as a chapter in my english textbook in class 9th.
wacko, fivepoint someone is MASALA!

Naresh said...

i hv monk who... just in case u need!

Divya Sagar said...

Ok don't listen to anyone. Just grab a Harry Potter book. Start from Book 3. You will be begging people to lend you book 4 and 5. And till the time you know it, Book 6 will be out by July 16. Its IDEAL!
And yeah man US is a funny country. Such dumF***s. I heard another ridiculous story they had fabricated. DOn't remember much. I mean its sooo DUMBBBB (funny actually), and they even get away with this stuff.
And also, please become only a social drinker ok?

Amod said...

@naresh-thanx dude, i'll ask when i need.
@divz-wow u r damn good at convincing ppl...let me look out of fr harry potter. It will make bhavesh happy too. so u having fun in funny country?and yeah i'll be a social drinker only..cant expect me too dance around with a bottle in hand and singing..

divya said...

read the alchemist its a lovely book ..though harry potter and the philosopher's stone is good too..but it depends on whether u prefer fantasy or reality..

Diabolical Angel! said...

Alchemist is one o my all time favourites, one o d few books which changed me as a person aswell! Do read it!

Amod said...

people people, yes I've read THE ALCHEMIST and i was really really impressed, certain insights were just like a blow. Surely, we shd always work in the direction of our dreams. thanx diabolical angel, divya*2, bhavesh, vivek, shaan for the idea.
