pagan and the beauty…. again!!!!!!!!

will u let the pagans burn in peace
we love to be burnt
we are born to be in hell forever
lessons never learnt…

hell is no place for a beauty
hell is where we belong
let there be no smile here
only melancholic song….

hell is where the heart is reborn
as the phoenix from ashes
again and again a violent death
hope and fear clashes…

will u let the pagans burn in peace
let the heat rise
may your beauty reign over heaven
hell is our paradise….

ColorSplash….awesome iPhone app

They say “a picture is worth a thousand words”…….
Nothing could be more appropriate for this post. So, just to keep it short n simple,
it’s about the iPhone app – ‘ColorSplash by Hendrik Kueck.
I think the pics show how awesome it is.. and to add to the fact, that i downloaded
last night and played with it for 15 minutes or so after coming back from class…
and here are the results…… enough said.

Only thing is that it’s a paid app ($1.99) …. but it’s worth, IMHO
So, splash the colour and have fun…

B.V.Doshi – the man in eternal search of unknown


doshiforweb

My batch mate : Sir, what’s the idea behind the architecture of IIMB ?
B. V. Doshi : What do you feel ? do you feel free or confined….
My batch mate : free
B.V. Doshi : Can you see the sunlight changing through the sky? Can you see the
shadows playing inside? Do you feel inside the classroom or outside ?

The auditorium erupted in claps….it was the QnA session with Mr.B.V.Doshi after
the screening of the movie ‘Doshi’ by Mr.Premjit Ramachandran at the auditorium
of IIM Bangalore. Mr. Premjit and Mr. Bijoy Ramachandran,both were present too.

I can’t live with or without you…

“And you give, and you give
And you give yourself away.
With or without you
With or without you
I can’t live
With or without you.”
– U2
One of my favourite songs and i am sure those who had heard it fell in
love with it as well…..But what is this lyrics??? I mean, c’mon…..
the probabilities don’t add up,right? (Never mind, just had a tute at
midnight… so)
Anyways, i had a chat with one of my good friends (rare breed though they
are) One-Who-Cannot-Be-Named.I asked him -man,what with this weird lyrics?
Now, mind you, he is as genius in all these matters as dumb I am… so,i
naturally didn’t make head or tail of his answer..but once One-Who-Cannot
-Be-Named utters something,it-cannot-be-ignored….So, here it is what i
got amongst all those blah blah s…
I have dreamt often enough
to be with you
I have dreamt often enough
to nightmares new…
Can’t sleep now, can’t dream
I see your eyes
Can’t sleep now, can’t dream
hear good-byes
Path you take crosses mine
every now and then
Path you take crosses mine
I hear Beethoven
Deep down in my empty heart
I know you aren’t mine
Deep down in my empty heart
hope I am thine
I just see you pass me by
remain unseen
I just see you pass me by
it might have been
They say it might have been
I don’t want it to be
They say it might have been
dying, part of me…….
dying slowly
dying slowly
dying… part of me

Tara r dike cheye chhilem…..

These are just some lines in Bengali i jotted down after reading  “Na Hanyate”
by Maitreyi Devi…an academy award winning Bengali novel
(this term is controversial, but for the moment let it be)

Jano aaj onekdin por
Tara r dike cheye chhilem
Tumi haschho jani
Bhabchho matha ta ekkebare gechhe
R ami bhabchhi
Proshno tar uttor

Tumi rege bolbe jani
Bhalo afai
Kiser proshno r kiser e ba uttor

Ami tokhon hoye jabo darshonik
Hese bolbo
0i chhayapoth tay
Amrita r Mircha jodi amar
Tobe je manush ta tirish bochhor
Bhalo baslo Amrita ke
Se tobe kon poth e chhaya?
Eka e thake? Kiser dosh e?
Kaal joyi prem noy tar..tai???

Jani proshno ta elomelo
Asole ki jano
Aaj onekdin er por
tara r dike cheye chhilem…..

Himalayas…through the eyes of a man who has seen it all


Himalayas has always fascinated me. Its snowy peaks,its awesome magnitude, its
legends,its mythologies….it’s pretty hard for an indian not to be felt humbled(is
that a generalization too much? maybe, maybe not) .
So, as there was an opportunity to attend the talk by Mr. Harish Kapadia on
Himalayas,l had to be there. This is what I like about being in this place the most
so far (ok ok,I am not being entirely truthful, but let it be). We already were
privileged enough to listen to Mr. Nandan Nilekani and Mr.James Abraham .
Maybe a write up later sometime on these sessions (if the quizzes and projects let
me be alive that long.)

Rain and Sunshine

Rain and sunshine…..
Both parts of mine.
I need ya all, I need ya badly
To satiate the thirst of my
Soul-pine…….

I am looking up
I am looking down;
And it looked back straight
With its frown….

I shed my tears
I bled all along
Yet laughter in my heart
With a suppressed song.

I am a tortured soul
Take me home….
Take me with you
To the hallowed dome.
