Tamso Maa Jyotirgamaya

Thanks Anuj for giving a good laugh.
It goes like this.

Teacher: Beta, Batao to Tamso ma jyotirgamaya shlok ka kya arth hai?
Student: Tum so jao maa, mein Jyoti ke ghar ja raha hoon.

So a good end to a bad day.
Time to go home now.

Title not required...

I am not in a good mood today. I am angry/frustrated/sad/nervous/...
yeah all this at the same time. I am not feeling like working/talking/reading.
It's my brother's birthday today and I haven't wished him yet. Not feeling like talking to anyone. (Sorry for the repetition)

All in all today I am not what I am and what I am today is really hard to digest for others.
Not a single joke since morning can explain this I guess.

On my part even I am conscious that I should not interfere in anything which is directly related to me else I can be very harsh today and I know it very well.

So just to avoid any situation like this I am sitting on my system and writing this post, just to avoid doing anything else.
Earphones are busy since morning which is not very usual, normally they come out of my drawers after lunch.

And when I am writing this Nusrat sahib is really trying hard to relax me by singing exactly what I want to listen.

To make this post a little long adding the tracks I am listening.

NFAK - Ask forgiveness from your love
NFAK - Biba sada dil mod de
NFAK - Classical Qawwali in raga gawo
NFAK - Gurus of peace
NFAK - Song in raga Bilawal
NFAK - More saiyan to hai pardes
NFAK - Rabba lakh lakh shukar manawa
NFAK - Tum ek GorakhDhandha ho

Music, War, Weapons and stories. aka avoiding valentine blues.

Thursday evening was a complete bliss as it was the inauguration of our new campus and we had KK performing only for us.

Now shouldn’t it give me a feel that I am working for a good company? Yeah I feel it. But buddy said that you should say that you’re not in so bad organization.

Anyways this post is more and more about the events and not about the discussions. So KK was there and for the first time I felt that he really is too good. He sang almost all of his famous songs and I loved all of them, but that was not the end of the celebration because Vikram Sathey was there to perform as well.

All and all the show was just perfect and so was the party after that.

Weekend started quite early as we were out of the house at 9:30 in the morning, gone to the aero show and that was really amazing.

For the whole day we were there knowing more and more about each aircraft.

The whole event was a pure fun other then the traffic we got stuck in while getting back. (Hey you damn blind deaf govt of Bangalore, cant you see what we are facing everyday?)

Again Sunday afternoon watched “Enemy at the gates”. I was waiting for this since very long. If anyone of you have not seen it then go grab a CD.

Last weekend I happen to visit landmark at forum and bought 3 books.

The writers are Manto, Chekhov & Gorki.

Going through the first one and it has the best piece of work by Manto at the time of partition.

Vishal this book is a must for you. I remember when you came back from Ahemadabad after the godhra, we had a long discussion on it. I am gonna give you this book next month when I am reaching Delhi.

So how are you celebrating today?
