Creativity out of nowhere

Sometimes Creative ideas pop out from nowhere, and they astound you but you won't notice this.

Here's something that happened today.

I was at a family friend's home. Basically I went off to meet the kids both in high school, Swati and Mayank. The family decided to drop me back home. So I and Swati got into the rear seat of the car, Uncle was driving and Aunty had a small quarrel with Mayank as to who'll lock the gate. Mayank gave some argument, Aunty gave in. She let him climb into the back seat with me and swati... and no sooner did he get in the car he said something very very unusual -> "They always have conspiration against me"

Ahem... "Conspiration" ???
What the heck was this? I wondered as I blurted out... "Sounds like constipated Conspiracy."
But then, uncle in the front scene said "No, Conspiration should be a conspiracy hatched in a toilet. "


I and Swati and Uncle just couldn't control our Laughter... We went crazy laughing.

Then Mayank all red hot and upset said -> "Well what conspiracy are you hatching now??"
His dad instantly -> "Ah! Right! We are sitting in a car... so it should be a Carspiracy no?"

Are stomach aches due to laughter (especially when we just had our dinner 15 minutes ago). We simply go crazy laughing uncontrollably...

Today, I learnt new words like "Conspiration" and "Carspiracy". Guess they are great ideas... Creative ideas that just come out of nowhere...

A Hero or a Villain?

Now that I mention how much I admire wild and vivid imagination; Sometimes however, I can't help myself admiring intelligence, that too in negative scenario.

Imagine someone whom you've never seen and don't know his/her real name, but you still know what he/she is currently thinking and is able to make moves accordingly, predicting to some great accuracy what will happen next.
Kira (Yagami Light) and L are two people who are looking for each other, but don't know each other by real names and face.

Yagami Light has good looks, intelligence to handle any situation no matter how ugly it may get, and yet has known only to loose his cool in one occasion -> When his arc rival comes to him face to face. If you've seen this movie or anime series or even the Manga (Read ::> Japanese Comics, for those who didn't know) then you'll know why did he loose his cool.

Yagami Light with his Death Note

So, This guy is very confident and is usually able to predict the actual outcome of his actions. And the only one in this world who can counter him is "L", a world famous detective.

And L is determined to get rid of him. He is equally confident and intelligent.

"L" aka "Ryuzaki". He is the only person who is able to understand what, why
and when "Light" aka "Kira" acts.

Though they are equally matched... I still like Yagami Light. I'm influenced by his cold emotionless thoughts. I like his attitutde and in the end, I like the way he looks... Ultra Cool!!!

Awesome imagination I say... something that I won't come across so often... Hence I give it some space in my blog. :)

But is this guy the hero of the series or is a villain or just the main character put in with a negative role... I still can't say. I'm yet to finish watching this series myself. However, I still think he is a true villain, by the way he thinks and by the way he acts.

A Great Imaginative Ragging

Something Related to our Ragging time in Hostel. During Ragging, no one is allowed to laugh or even express their feelings and views. One is just supposed to do as told by any senior.

Being freshers, we are assumed to be Indian Public Property (and everyone knows what state of condition is Indian Public Property in... Or do I need to mention it??).

However, I really admire one Hostel senior of mine... He actually has immense imagination. He demonstrated it to us by these two incidents.

For now, I'll discuss the first incident.

Incident One, Sometime in October

Room no. 109
Situation: Lots of Seniors Sitting on two beds. There is some narrow space between the beds. Two or three are smoking. Juniors (namely us) were crouched together in one corner. Now our imaginative Senior puffs out smoke and welcomes a junior (poor lad)

Imaginative Senior (IS) ::> Hey ######### (Censored. Sorry it's too heavy) Come here.

He unsuspecting goes to him. IS suddenly jumps up and pushes him hard. The Poor Junior is thrown over to another small group of equally poor juniors.

Why Can't you see that Bike Mata (Motorcycle godess) is sitting here!!! Why you... trample her!!! You can't show proper respect to the almighty!! (Points at space between the two beds)

Poor Junior 1 (PJ1) ::> Sorry Sir. This won't happen again.

IS ::> What sorry. Bow to Bike Mata and beg for forgiveness.

PJ1 ::> (Innocently goes near the space, but careful not to go on it. He bows down religiously in front of bike mata) O Almighty Bike Mata. This scum of earth (Laughter all over) begs thee of mercy and forgiveness (Seniors Rolling over and Laughing. Juniors too want to laugh, but control due to dire consequences otherwise... ). Please Listen to this un-pure disciple and forgive him.

IS ::> Hey!! Scum of Earth! You're too close to her... Get away! You'll Dirty her!! And then She'll have to take bath... that too in Ganges.

PJ moves Back a bit

PJ1 ::> O Bike Mata. I the ultimate scum of earth (Laugh) now offers you prayers

IS ::> Oye!! You scum of earth (laugh) How dare you even think of offering her your prayers!! Get Lost you!!

PJ1 Gets lost amongst a group of Juniors near him.
After another few who are unable to give proper forgiveness and are largely copying PJ1. The Seniors call PJ6, who has also been given the title of Dalla rickshaw wala (Laugh).

IS ::> Oye!! The Rickshaw wala has come!! Oye you are one great disciple... you'll perform a whole puja.

PJ6 ::> (Spreads out his hands as if he was holding a plate) O Bike Mata, Please...

IS ::> What's this please?!! Never seen guys talk to god while giving puja. People Sing Bhajans and chant Mantras. I'll forgive you because you're a illiterate rickshaw wala. (Laugh)

PJ is now in a fix. :) More so because he can't get any ideas.

PJ6 ::> S S Sir... I I can't... I I d don't know any bh bh bhajans.

IS ::> Well? Do something proper...

PJ6 ::> O Bike Mata. I Hope you to keep running on forever and give a great mileage.

IS ::> Is that all you ########## (Censored again, Sorry). You don't want bike mata to grow up and become big?

PJ6 ::> (This time he has some idea) O bike mata, I hope you quickly grow up and carry more and more riders.

(Some data removed due to extremeness in its contents...)

IS ::> (shouts) What kind of a disciple are you? OK. At least offer her something. You can't go from here until you offer her some thing. Break a coconut or do whatever. Just make it proper.

PJ6::> (Pretending to hold a coconut, Raises his right arm and brings it in one quick movement to the ground and makes a noise) Phat.

IS ::> What was that!! Are you smashing coconuts or balloons??

PJ6 ::> C C Coconut S Sir.

IS ::> Well, then at least make it sound like a coconut.

PJ6 ::> (Repeats the previous action) Bhadaam!

IS ::> Oye!! You're supposed to be breaking a coconut not explode a bomb!

Another Senior ::> He sounds like a terrorist attacking the bike mata temple... Throw him out. He is a threat to our faith!!

IS ::> Yes, Get out before I throw you into a sewer.

Now comes in my call... god save me.

IS ::> Selenium! Give a puja.

Me ::> (Seeing PJ6 fried very well, I pretend holding a bell in left hand and a diya (lamp) in right... I start to sing)

O Bike Mata Jaldi Badi Ho Jao (O Bike Goddess, Grow up quickly)
O Bike Mata Tum Badi Gadi Ho Jao (O Bike Goddess, Become a big vehicle quickly)
O Bike Mata Accha Mileage do (O Bike Goddess, Give a good Mileage)
O Bike Mata Driver ka Bhala karo (O Bike Mata, Do good to the Driver)

IS admires... people whistle and hoot ^__^ Things going out fine for now.

IS ::> See this is one great pujari!!! He's awesome dude. Now now, continue with the puja. You know what to do...

Me ::> (Ya, right... I again do that coconut stance, I've run out of ideas x_x) Bang!!

IS ::> Oye ########## (Censored... I think you're used to it now. ) Why did you shoot bike mata!!! You murder...

Me ::> (Game over x_x) I I sir, well, didn't shoot, it's the coco...

IS ::> Heck. Coconuts don't sound like guns... What voilent is this generation. Then do puja with guns and bazooka (So this guy knows about bazookas too... I'm impressed...)

Me ::> (Now completely blank o_O . I just bow down) O Bike Mata, I've been blessed by you I hope that this disciple of yours continues to receive your blessing.

IS ::> That was Lame!! Get lost you vermin...


In the end... I really liked the Bike Mata Idea. How ones imagination can help make really funny situations... this one story is heavily reduced as 80% of this can't be shared publicly... ^^;;;

What's with the eyes?

I've come across many people who've asked me this question -> "What's with this eyes only thing of yours?" Those who didn't understand the question yet... can take a look at the display pic under About Me part of this page.

Now, facing this question the first thing that comes to my mind (and always does) 'Ah! Good question. Never thought about it. How the heck would I know.'

Then a string of thoughts...

1> Could be my style
2> Could be my fetish
3> A sheer coincidence
4> Reflex action
5> A mark left by fate
6> Some psychological bias
7> A way to hide identity
8> It's different
9> It's the first thing I could draw
10> A metaphysical approach to understand people
and many endless thoughts...

What did it all lead to?
Just one awkward answer every time. Because I like the eyes.
Eyes are the only part that can give you 75% of the expression of one's face. I express myself only to this extent too... :) If you're below 18 years and still in school, then I'll say "Don't think too much about the remaining 25%" and if you're 18 years or above and have finished school then I'd say "I'll leave the remaining 25% as homework".

And hence, like all other previous occasions, I manage to give an answer without actually knowing what I'm talking about. I'm just happy the other person will move to some next topic... and if he/she doesn't then I usually do it for him...

A Proxy Prank

I stay in a hostel where we have both the boys and girls hostel in a single building.

So, one day before diwali... at about 1 'o clock in night...

Guys in Room no. 112 acquire crackers and bombs. It doesn't take much time for them distribute it among the other hostel mates.

Being a bunch of boys, it's obvious that what their ultimate target would be; ~_^ They start the Pre Diwali Ceremony by starting to throw bombs and crackers (and even rockets O_o) into the girls hostel.

Well, we have just one warden for our girls and boys hostel (One building, one warden x_x ) and that too she's a fat, short tempered and utterly unrliable (and not to mention, a slow set of grey cells). Naturally she goes crazy.

Next scene is practically of a Army Assembly. Every boy staying in the boys hostel is standing in complete attention... except for their faces which is hung down (like a ostrich trying to bury it's face into the ground :P ). She is lecturing... no... practically threatening the boys of the dire consequences that they will now face.

In middle of her lecture class... a loud ceremony of 1000 crackers goes out, at what it seemed, the girls hostel.

The Warden was speechless, practically flabbergasted. And now she was out of her wits. What now? She let all the boys go, mumbling something to herself.


Two days later, I come back from my vacation and hear this story... I can't help but laugh :D
I practically died laughing that day... I wish I was there at the time when the boys were blowing off crackers.

However, I also came to know this -> One boy was not standing in the line when our warden was threating us. He did the grand closing ceremony for our Pre Diwali Celebration. ^_^ and in a tricky way too...
