…… (phone call) …..

Mickey: I think, I should go back to studying.

Bummie: But, first tell me why are you upset?

Mickey: I don’t know, I guess .. I forgot 😐

Bummie: mad you are. See you later.

Mickey: Cya. (puts the phone down)


After 1 hour, (message on BBM)*

Bummie: Listen, for the last time, are you alright?

Mickey: Actually, I am worried.

Bummie: For?

Mickey: My friend told me that he is sad, told me about how his work-life is sad, love-life is non existent, studies are jammed, nothing really good happening. Also, the problem is, that these things are my issues too. 😐

Bummie: Someone as sorted and calm as you shouldn’t say this.

Mickey: Okay, I keep myself aside, but at present, my worry is that why are my friends so worried? Why are they so tangled?

Bummie: Why are you worried for them? Are your own problems not enough?  Khud ki pareshaani kam hai? 😦

Mickey: See, its not like that! I love all of you’ll. And you’ll includes them as well as you. If I love, I love and since I love, these things disturbs me, affects me.

Bummie: Love is “CLICHE” baby. Or at least what people think love is. Also, friendship is a different sector. There are different rights in those sector.

Mickey: But I love my friends, their directionless state or illogical behavior or pre-decided excuse to reasonable wrong things troubles me. 😐

Bummie:  Stop focusing on others so much. Sab log sab khud seekhengay (Everyone will learn themselves).

Mickey: I don’t think I should sit like Gandhiji’s monkey. Not that I want to go with a hunter, flog or force people to change. But it bothers me.

Bummie: They won’t change and they won’t care too.

Mickey: But tell me, what is the purpose of life if one doesn’t love? and if one loves, care comes from within and when you care, you worry about every small fallacy, small trouble, small issues and so on . Past issues were more on importance side to recognition and respect. Otherwise, my love is mine and that it doesn’t matter if the one I love, has to love me back.

Bummie: Mickey, why aren’t you changing? I don’t know if this is a good thing or a bad thing.

Mickey: Keep faith Bummie, keep faith.

Bummie: But you will hurt yourself everytime. Besides, faith should be on yourself not others.

Mickey: I’m not a chameleon that I’ll change my colors to protect myself from worldly dangers. I have to be a warrior. I need to fight but I need to live as well. To live whole-heartedly, is to love from within.

Bummie: I think you should stop behaving filmy. Movie se bahar nikal.

Mickey: Look, movies are inspired from human lives or human minds. The purpose of life is not to safeguard yourself and finish the journey but the real purpose lies in loving, making people happy and enjoying the journey.  Getting it?

Bummie: I don’t know what to say. Goodnight.

Mickey: Goodnight. (thinks: So what is important? — To survive the journey or to live the journey?) 😦

February 12, 5:20 am:

I get up from my bed, and feel an urge to check my mail. I take my Sis’ Note and log in and come across another Indiblogger Meet. Right away, I open my laptop and get myself registered.

February 13-16 till 2:00 pm:

I go all excited with the Indiblogger Meet, draw up a plan to fool the boss and leave in half day without getting my pay deducted. Tweet tens of bloggers I met in previous meets about me being excited to meet them and that we will have fun. Thinking about getting my damaged hair cut or not so that I can have good pictures in the event (Note: I hate Hair-Cut, not that I enjoy long hair, but I hate going for a Hair-Cut, Pakta hai bohot 😥 )

February 16, 2:05 pm:

Confront boss with a puppy face and well recited excuse and get permission to leave. I run to the station with my constant dripping down low waist jeans (wrong decision and forgetting to wear bealt, lead to such embarrassing moments 😛 ). Reach Bandra Station, fight with a rickshawwallah and reach the venue.


Here I reach, Indiblogger meet by HP #ConnectedMusic

Where? – Otto Infinito (you can have the details about the venue from – – Btw, Its a place worth visiting once !!

When? – February 16, 2013 – 3:00-7:00 pm.

               I reached the venue with an air of excitement and a mood of exultance as the venue as well as weather was quiet pleasant. As soon as I entered, I saw everyone waiting outside the venue. However, drinks were served and everyone were finding their “I-Know-That-Person” with a glass in their hands and chatting away until the doors opened and we were invited in.

              We all were made to sit on different table and were given a White Paper where after initial opening speech which involved voice clearance warm up by the Deadlock Organiser Guy, we had to go and meet every blogger for minimum 30 seconds and get their scribbles and scraps on our paper. Before going, Giveaway of HP Earphones with MIC was given to all the girls who had worn Dupatta and the guys with cool headgear.

So, yes, we kicked off with a funny music being played where we had to meet all the bloggers. It was that time, where I happened to meet few really charming people:-

Vaibhavkumar Rai (@IMRaiSaheb) – Although I know him from before, but still acted as if I met him at the meet :D. One of the most amazing personality, I have ever seen.

Amrita Rana (@AmritaRana) – One of the biggest food-lover, I have come across. Although, I met her in Nokia Indiblogger Meet, but hadn’t spoken much that time. Today, finally did it.

Neha Sharma (@NehaSharmaHere) – Member of Young India Foundation and she came to me as one really sweet girl.

The Nameless One (@deoxy_adi) – Since the first meet I attended, and till today. This Guy has maintained his hair and beard so nicely. 😀

Shanaya Sinner (@Shanaya_Sinner) – La Femme élégante. She moved around with her DSLR capturing Indiblogger moments. I came to know later, that she is a DJ as well. *ooooooooohhh* 😀

Karishma Rawat (@KarishmaRawat) – The pretty lady of the meet.

Fatima and Aditi – Bubbly girls who always seem happy hopping in the meet.

Amit Pithadia (@amitspithadia) – This guy has got really great hobbies. Had heard of him before from Vaibhav and was really nice seeing him out there.

Blogwati G (@BlogwatiG) – The most popular blogger. Had fans everywhere :D.

Priya Adivarekar (@priyaadivarekar) – Had a very awkward conversation with her since I felt, I have seen her a lot of times. Nevertheless, I really want to learn from her on how to design a blog so well :O.

Nelton Dsouza (@NeltonDsouza) – The conductor of the choir (about which you will read in the latter part of the post).

Gargi Salgaonkar (@gargi22_9) – The fashion blogger and a twitter friend after first blogger’s meet- Met her finally :D.

Nirali Naik (@BluBluBling) – She told me about Tamarind Rice :O .. Visit:- for more details 😉

And after meeting many more of such bloggers for couple of seconds, we all came back to our place and I won HP Headphones with Mic for getting more than 40 scribbles. 😀 😀 😀 Woot Woot

Headphones that I won

Then we had this HP and Hungama guys coming around to explain us, what is this HP – ConnectedMusic. It was an hour full of amazement as it was really good. The sound was clear, the search was quicker and comprehensive.

Q. What is HP – Connected Music?

A. HP India along with an association with Hungama launches a ground breaking and seamless service that will give Indian consumers immense choice and access to global and regional digital music and content.

One sad part about this is, It works only on HP products and since I have Dell, I won’t be able to access it 😦

(for people who were not present at the meet – get yourself updated with one of the most innovative product by HP —  Connected Music)

Meanwhile three contests were also announced:

1) Tweet your favourite artist’s name and if that name is in the envelope, they stand to win a HP laptop :O.

2) Tweet about someone you met at the meet with a #BFF hashtag and the sweetest tweet stands to win a HP Laptop too. :O

3) Whoever comes out with the real meaning of Otto Infinito, stands a chance to have a free brunch at Otto Infinito next sunday. WOWWWWW :O :O

It was a real difficult session as your eyes were glued to the innovations displayed by HP Connected Music and your mind brainstorming on how can you win these contests.

 ———— After a gruelling session, we had a break for food. I wish, I had photos of the event. However, my camera sucks and I was too busy eating, tweeting and meeting that I forgot to ask my friend to click. 😐

Food for thought:- Amazing mouth watering red sauce and white sauce pastas and roasted paneer (it had a very difficult name, I couldn’t remember, I am sorry), Thin Crust Pizza, Mint and Pomegranate Lemonade, and few non veg stuffs which I did not bother knowing the name.

After food was served and everyone got back to their places, winners were announced for the contest and cheering happened. To mark the end of the event, a last game was announced where people had to make teams from the eight music themes given by them.

4 teams were formed – 13 13 13, Dumchik Dumchik Dumchik, Smack that booty and one in rock genre, I can’t recollect the name.

We had to make teams on our own with like minded people and had to sing a song.

It was really funny seeing 13 13 13 having half the people who attended the event in their team. I belonged to it, and had a choir where we sang Fevicol, Sheila and Munni. It was amazing fun.

We were followed by Dumchik, that Rock theme people and Smack that booty and had a loud cheer in the end.

It was really amazing that the organizers announced 1st runner up as well and dumchik dumchik won HP headphones. After which, to everyone’s amazement, they announced 13 13 13 as winners too and almost half the attendees won HP Headphones too. Long live the Organizers O:) :D.

Lastly, a group photograph was clicked. I am sure all the pictures will come up on Indiblogger facebook page and probably, I’ll insert some of them out here later on.

A super day, as we head back home with beautiful memories and some really new friends and twitter followers AND AND AND, A beautiful Indiblogger T-shirt 😉

HP #ConnectedMusic Indiblogger Meet, Love you !!

      Just about when you feel you have achieved a proper hold over your haphazard, crazy and an unmanageable tedious and stressful life, it will jump out of your clutches, and do some somersault and give you few back and forth kicks on your face and bum leaving every part injured.

     And this situation is just about same when you finally learnt how to handle dual lives of a college going student and an office going article trainee, you realize that there are countable days remaining after which you would be called a graduate and entire world will cling to you with a garland or responsibilities.

   In all these chaotic situations, there is one hot topic, “College Life, from start to end, the best part of it and what will you miss the most?” where you’ll end up talking about it, no matter what, at some point or some day or the other.

   And just now, when I was returning home from office and thought of just having a night walk alone, thinking on the same grounds, I stumbled upon one of the greatest and the most amazing person I have met, befriended, laughed with, been with, sat with, fought with, got angry with, got upset with, and so much and whom I would never ever forget even after my college gets done, CA gets done and probably even life gets done.

    “Mi querida amiga” which means “My Dear Friend” in Spanish  I promised you on whatsapp, I’d tell you something by midnight, and this was it. I know, I am not justified in mentioning only you to make my college life beautiful but I am writing to you, or rather decided to, as you are the most precious thing I have earned in these 5 years.

     From my hundred kicks a day to you, from my borrowing of your pencil and pens, eventually losing it, from my projects being half made by you, from Chocolate Milkshake treat at Bajaj Road, from my sulking because you went with someone else for a Subway, from my getting angry because you let someone else sit besides you in F.Y.Bcom, from my asking you to give proxy attendance, from me giving you my book to write; where you write everything in an upside down page, from my never ending laughs over our jokes and future plans, from my getting freaked out at your crazyness levels, from my scanty phone calls to my few walks with you, from my searching you in canteen or searching you in your class during break and eventually ending up with someone else, from so much to no end, from memories to memories, I have had so much and such amazing time with you.

   I must have told you “I love you” a number of times, meant deeply too, but then even those three words wouldn’t describe how much a great time I had with you. How I always checked which class are you in after I checked mine everytime Class List was put up before start of the year. You are the best, and the most mesmerizing friend I ever have. One of the few girls I have met in our college who can make anyone laugh, can make great friends with anyone, think as dirty as a dog does, act as bitchy as a girl does and yet move around with a halo over your head making everyone feel as if they just met a saint :D.

         Thanks a lot for every great moment you gave me in last three years, I promise to stay besides you, for you and with you for the rest of our lives. Because even if you won’t need me, the truth is, I’d need you, for no specific reasons, but I would.

****(Boss, I know I am an emotional guy,    You must have found it funny,      but I am sure you must have expected this too 😉 )**** AND YES, HAPPYY BIRTHDAYYY  !!! 😀 😀 😀


That word, is not a giver of good feelings.

Right now, with this state of mind … I could run away and explore a city. Damn. New York. I just happen to be in immense love with the idea of New York.

Or maybe camp in a forest, barbecue marshmallows but without the gross little insects hoping around .. Please no! ..and with this perfect scene, there would be someone besides me to gaze at. That, sounds real good. But then on second thoughts, I hate a dirty unsettled environment and the feeling of remoteness that comes from being stranded in a forest. forest for me.

I shall just stick to New York and those sparkling buildings.

I saw this scene in one sitcom, okay. Girl sitting on that wood log and the guy besides her, with a tent behind them in a forest I have no idea they had in their little ‘town’.. Anyways, girl is looking at the boy with such intensity and he just gives her that breathtaking romantic smile and roasts the marshmallows. It’s roasting right?

I wonder how it will be, to smile for no reason at a person, the one who knows all your smiles. Really it is. Its so completely beyond me, that how something sounds so hopelessly pathetic and yet ..soo very romantic?

Anyways I think about it..

Maybe there is no such thing like a person knowing all your smiles. Maybe its only a romantic projection I have in my mind..the one I want to believe in.

It’s in there too, in 500 Days of Summer, this cute movie. The hero, Tom, works as a writer at a greeting card company..He writes majorly cards which are on love and courtship, and its about how he loses belief in all the norms revolving around love … and with such doubts, wonders what makes sense and what doesn’t anymore.


The scene goes like this:-


Tom abruptly gets up frustrated from his seat, in his company’s board meeting, where they are discussing new taglines for greeting cards. He has this look in his eyes, of a man who is on the verge of a major breakdown..He looks so possessed, disarmed and shows raw pain of a broken hearted lover.

He says –


“It’s these greeting cards, Sir, these cards, these movies, these pop songs.

They’re responsible for all the lies, the heartache, everything! We’re responsible!

I think we do a bad thing here.

People should be able to say how they feel, how they really feel, without some strangers putting words in their mouths.

The truth.

A card is a nice thought but it shouldn’t do the dirty work for you.

You love someone; tell them yourself, in your own words. Maybe it’s not love at all. Maybe there’s no such thing as love.

Maybe it’s… “galoogoo.”

Yeah I made it up, so what?!  “

Tom gets up and walks to the door.


Scene ends.


It’s true you know, what he says.

They are the reason people have such unrealistic expectations.

I have my perfect unrealistic expectation.. the perfect scene of the girl and boy roasting marshmallows, to have the feeling of knowing each others smiles..only because they fed me that. The sitcoms and the movies and the songs..they put these perfect ideas in my head.

Because love cant be this perfect, na?
