Complex Smoker

Pic taken from Oksana Vetova (facebook)

I am a big time smoker.

But you my love,

Why do you smoke?

Is it possessiveness?

or the need to grow up.

My mind deviates;

You sleeping with other guys

I know it’s kind of sad.

I trust you, not the smoke.

When you disappear

For the night sometimes.

You go out to the world,

It’s whore lotta trouble.

For you are like the smoke.

I am a male centred

I want freedom

Yet you stay with me close

When I am there to love,

Why do you smoke?


Utopia of The Spotted Mind



This life, one life. So chaotic? Yes it is not perfect, fuck perfection. Fuck what people think for a while. Just meditate. Not the kind where you pose and pretend not to be asleep. Meditate in your own way. Listen to a song or masturbate; anything that lets you escape the world for sometime. Since precede this silence, this singleness, a Boss would bang your door and break your peace. Till then, it’s all about you. You were there.

Is it justifiable to escape? I say it is. Because the world is ugly, you can’t choose contentment, you have to snatch it. Make it quick, the Boss comes real fast. Hse will bang your door hard, hse will make you feel guilty, and hse will make you so weak that you would cry. You can never change the Boss but you can still save yourself. Run, run away kid. Family, society and relationships? What do they give you? Love runs out faster than any other fuel. We are surrounded by selfish creatures and are manipulated through agendas. Maybe the Boss is right, it is useless to dream. It is right to be afraid, it is right to be unhappy and lament about life. Either be an escapist, dare to book a ticket to the Himalayas and stop eking through mortality. OR succumb to that old Boss and the new Boss who will continue the legacy. Sojourn this pretense, “he who says Carpe Diem and comes back home with a jute bag filled with vegetables and disappointment”. You are worse. The Boss is not the problem, your impotency is. For once be clear of these double standards. Stop saying you want space, independence, freedom and all those French movement ideals. You have watched enough movies and read ample novels. Fiction is always unreal and sliced to perfection. You are not perfect and your want for utopia is as silly as the wish to woo that crush of yours. Grow up.

As for me,

Unintentionally, I have found my silver lining and now I am armistice. To have finally seen the world after my intense travels and musings. On occasions I live with the Bosses. Paradoxical much, I do what I want against all obligations.  I have finally seen the Light. Ah, to write is to dream.

Bang!! Wait, wait, wait I hear the

5 Recurring Things Every Assamese Does in Delhi


Almost every Assamese/NE organization has its own fest.  Herein you learn the sole reason; when you stay in Delhi you have got to socialize with your people. The entire point of all this ‘ayujan’ has different objectives. For the girls it’s time to open their trunks full of Assamese material they brought from home and for the guys it’s a new place to do the party. Last but not the least, Ramjas Assamese Meet. Enough Said.


Same genre as the fest but this one is on the larger scale. Assam is primarily dived as Upper and Lower. Both the parties celebrate Bihu but the people from ‘Ujoni’ are too pumped up for such regional occasions taking them to the next level. Level = Junbai 3D. They would even hire rented cars just to watch ‘Bihu’ in Gurgaon. Such Josh Much Akhmoiya.



When you first arrive in the city, we all become this nocturnal beings night crawling and exploring all the places. Be it Kamla Nagar Ridge, Greater Kailash, India Gate or if you dare, you know which road to go. Piece of advice, stay away from the Highways.



The most pointless place is the Tea Point. Ironic eh? Where people literally sit, sip and smoke for hours. This is not only the scenario near the Campus side but many places in South/West Delhi have the same custom. Thus, where there is a will there is a way and where there is an Assamese Residency there is a Tea Point.



If you haven’t travelled Himachal and witnessed the Himalayas, what’s the point then? Many go to the Himalayas to escape the moribund Delhi life and enter the High Life. Nobody gives a shit to that Shiv Mandir(source Subramanyam Swami) near Delhi, the so called 7th wonder or something.


NOTE: It may seem from this exaggerated post that all we do is ‘anything but meaningful’ work, but I beg to disagree because we also do some important stuff like ‘Pseudo-Netagiri’, ‘Fest Volunteers/Organisers’ and ‘Healthy Flirting’.

He Woke Up For school


“I shall rise and shine”,
And he never came back.
Who was he?
What religion did he belong?
A student in the morning,
And a dead man by night.

“Take me home, they will
kill me”. He cried.
The crime was simple,
He woke up for school.
The lust for Nobel Peace Prize
Probably got him to dare.

More terrorist less teachers,
More bombers less students.
The fools who dream, and
The parents are reminded;
The Jihad of them Mujahid
Was “to make them feel the pain”..

Wanted Engineer Bride

It was in the year 1980 when Mohun Borah, aged 77 a widower supported by PWD pension and a son name Ramanuj. Ramanuj is a Government Officer who lived with his father in their Assam Type house in Kumarpara, near Bharalumukh(Assam). Mohun Borah was a spiritual man with a lot of superstition. (Just like ‘U’ follows a ‘Q’, ‘spirituality’ precedes ‘superstition’.) He never dreamt big in his life, (we can take that into account for anyone who has worked in PWD) his last wish before he encountered the Almighty was to see his son Ramanuj getting married to an ideal girl. Well, there are many definitions of an ideal girl but for the Indian Society it is limited to a woman who can cook real well and is stereotypically House Wife material. Ramanuj never insisted to get married nor had he shown any urgency in spite of the fact he had crossed the 30 age mark. Risky it seems, back then there was no Ponds Age Miracle cream. It was natural for a family without a woman. Who else but your mom can push you into something like getting married? After his normal dull office work, Ramanuj would go for his regular adda(chatting) at Nayantara Club( A club which organises Durga Puja Celebrations in Guwahati) where he was an active member of the Puja committee.  As days passed, Mohun became increasingly worried.
Incidently, Mohun had got the news that their family guru Prasanta Deu(Pujari) is taking his last breath and has summoned him to his native village, Sualkuchi. So he took the next day morning bus to his ancestral village as he was under a long family obligation to that person. It seemed that Deu was postponing his Calling just to meet Mohun once and for all. He holds Mohun by his hands lying on bed and spoke those words before he died that changed Mohun and his son’s life forever. “This is my prediction. If Ramanuj marries a girl who has Biswakarma and Goddess Lakshmi’s sparkha(highlights). They will be the happiest couple(happier than Sarkozy and Carla Bruni) and will build castles in air. You can expect to be the father of a great man”. Prashanta Deu died leaving old Mohun at a condition where he had no clue what to do next. It was very difficult for Mohun to ignore the last spoken words due to a family tradition that happened a long time back……
It was Mohun’s father a poor weaver in the village. He was out of luck and out of bread. Business was not good. Then, he met a Deu who was Prashanta Deu’s grandfather, near the temple and  without looking at his hands predicted that if he marries a girl by Bohag(Spring) his fortunes are sure to change. He got married and within a year he had his own weaving shop.
Although, it seemed a foolish coincidence but it has happened again and this time to his son Ramanuj. Mohun wondered as to why he was exempt from all predictions? Maybe mediocre people are not destined for prophecies. Mohun could not solve the riddle that occupied his brain for many days. Finally he let out the prophecy to his best friend and companion at the local Naam Ghar(Temple), Pranjal Buragohain. Pranjal read the riddle in his mind as if it was some kind of puzzle to open a treasure and said he would come to the conclusion by next day. Meanwhile, Mohun did not mention anything about the prophecy to his son, being a man of the modern world (of the AC DC generation) he knew Ramanuj would have never agreed to get married under such considerations and would further drop the proposal of getting institutionalised.
The following day Pranjal Buragohain solved the riddle in his CID way with his own logic. He demonstrated his ‘partner in Naam’ that the Deu wanted Ramanuj to marry a rich girl who is a Civil Engineer. Pranjal could see his partner was not convinced so he continued with more reason. A Civil Engineering girl means who has the power to construct just like Biswakarma and she being rich means she has Goddess Laskhmi Sparkha. If everything felt at its place Ramanuj could be destined to be the next President of India he further added. Mohun give the impression of the concept a big Facebook Like since he got the lead to search a girl who is a rich Civil Engineer. He was happy about the idea of being the father of a president and wondered what they would call a president’s father.
The main problem was girls during that time preferred home science and fine arts over Engineering; Civil Branch was out of concern. Still the old man tried whatever he could to find the needle in the haystack. He first wrote letters to GU, AEC and JEC to enquire about girls who took Civil Engineering and are still unmarried or widowed. He rejected the idea of including divorced girls as it would have violated the prophesy. Unfortunately for Mohun there were no private colleges to look for and there were no TCS Offices back then in the State. After months of unofficial research and enquiry he finally got the list of unmarried engineering girls and to his horror none in Civil branch. Meanwhile Mohun’s sister brought a nice proposal, a girl teaching in TC School(a Government school). Everyone in the family was excited about it except for Mohun. Finally the meeting arrangements proceeded and Ramanuj gave the green signal. He finally succumbed to women manipulation it seems. The wedding was held within a month and soon a woman entered their home and their lives since the death of Ramanuj’s mother. Mohun never mentioned the Presage to anyone again and he started living with the fact that Ramanuj was not destined to be the President and mostly he could never be the father of a President.
After 1 year……
Meera and Ramanuj are expecting their first born. They have renovated the house and constructed an additional floor. Ramanuj got his long pending promotion and a further bonus from the department. Mohun too was very happy and then it struck him like Thunder. Their new home, Ramanuj’s high salary and promotion, all big things have happened following the marriage which were far better than Ramanuj being the President. He realised that everything the Deu predicted has fallen into pieces. He finally could see the way it was actually meant.

That later year Ramanuj became the President of the Nayantara Club.

6 Women Who Got Friend Zoned…(Fictional)

Well, one of my Blog was about 6 Men Who Got Friend Zoned (Link – Now why should ‘Girls have all the fun’? The revenge is sweet and karma pays you back. 

1. Black Widow and Captain America

The ‘Marvel-istic’ superhero seems to be the pioneer of Friend Zoning one of the hottest being in the world, Black Widow. The redemption of Manhood towards female monopoly of Friend Zoning innocent males. Thank You Captain America, more than an accidental Superhero.


2. Hermione and Harry

The Boy who lived Friend Zoned Hermione, by the most famous way of doing it. The BFF way. It all started when he preferred the Chinese girl over her. Well, to Harry the grass is always greener on the other side or maybe her pre-puberty looks still haunts him.



3. Velma and Shaggy

Shaggy, who looked like a Weed addict dated Velma for a short spam leading to many complications between Scooby Doo. In the end it turned all sour and he decided to remain ‘Just Friends’ (if that word existed), all for his buddy Scooby.  Shaggy made the right call it seems, as for Velma, “Jinkies”.



4. Bellatrix and Voldemort

There is no way Voldemort, a power obsessed narcissistic soul would ever waste time seducing a woman. However, Bellatrix did saw something in whatever the Tom Riddle left in him. Had there been more, we would have to witnessed something  really gross. Good choice, Tom.



5. Elizabeth and Bhuvan

Poor Elizabeth had to be a Greg Chappel for Bhuvan, who later preferred the Desi over Firangi. How love can make someone a Vibhisan(for the British Raj) and can end you up in getting Friend Zoned. Communication gap may have played a big role as Elizabeth was really ‘Gauri’(beautiful). Elizabeth, we feel you.


6. Anjali and Rahul

Well this story provides some necessary comfort to all those who have been friend zoned. You can still end up getting married. Although, you have to do a makeover and be more feminine.

Note:- A bit of treading and upper lip helped in this case.




6 Songs For Different Love Situations (.gif)




 1. CRUSH 

The perfect song for a new crush is David Archuleta’s ‘Crush’. When you reach the confused state of ‘Friendship or something more, Love or something less’, this one perfectly fits the bill. To delve more into your subject (crush) try listening closely to the lyrics. “Am I crazy or falling in Love, Is it really just another Crush”. Get into the illusion, say what?




When you have crossed the Crush stage and have reached a more concrete stage of relationship, the song that can be perfectly related to is, ‘More Than Words’ – Extreme. The tune just flows with the feeling of the new Love in your life. The best part about the song is the slow tempo. If you have your Dancing Shoes on, take her out and just dance because “More than words is all you have to do to make it real”.




The most complex form of Love is the ‘Long Distance Love’. You may sometimes feel low or at time feel the urge to commit Infidelity. But hold on to that thought because Music is the solution. There is a huge list of Distant-Bound love songs; and among the many songs the apt pick is “Hey There Delilah- Plain White Ts”. “A thousand miles seems pretty far, but they have got trains, planes and cars. I will walk to you if I had no other way” and your motivation is back. Be in Love while you still can.



There are many stages of a Break-up which includes shock, denial, anger, depression, regrets and acceptance. For every stage, we have great songs to accompany.

(i) Anger – For Light we need darkness and for love we need hatred. Not all love stories are successful; some just go down the drain with bitterness included. To keep you in the moment of hateful anger you require music. It follows:

“She fucking hates me

la la la love

I tried too hard

and she tore my feelings like I had none
and ripped them away”.  

Music be thy muse and thy means to counter enemy.


(ii) Regrets

There is enough time for Regrets but not much time to act(inspired from Pink FLoyd). But, regrets are a part of every love story starting from the ‘One That Got Away’ to the ‘One that got pregnant’. Yes, you guessed it right. The perfect song for the theme is Katy Perry’s classic “The One That Got Away”. 



5. SEX

Biologically – It is the combining and mixing of genetic traits; spiritually – it is fusion of the male and the female soul. These, definitions are too overrated and bookish. Sex is awesome and Akon is spot on, in this epic song. Need prove? Here’s the fun part. “I just had sex. And it felt so good. Having sex can make a nice man out of the meanest”.

6 Men Who Got Friend Zoned.. (Fictional)

1. Snape and Lily Potter

This is the most tragic (love?) story ever witnessed, but at the end of the day he was Friend Zoned by Lily Potter. Real tragedy is dying for someone who Friend Zoned you. More painful than the ‘Sectumsempra’. Snape, we feel you.





2. Wolverine and Jean Grey

Wolverine is one of the few Superheroes who got Friend Zoned (by fellow X-Mate Jean Grey).  At any day he could have easily scored a girl but Jean Grey seems to be the only thing that pierces his ego.The great Adamantium is not effective when it comes to immunity from getting FZ’D it seems.


3. Batman and Rachel

If Marvel has Wolverine, DC has The Batman. The Batman proves that no matter how BIG you do in your life, once Friend Zoned then its eternal. The only consolation was the Cat Women. Thus, for every Rachel rejected there is always a Cat Women.


4. Peeta and Katniss

Peeta Malark is the Charles Babbage (Father) of the ‘Art of Friend Zoning’. Oh Poor Peeta Malark. The World’s only Friend Zoned husband cum lover. Taking the idea of FZ’ing to a next level. Need to say anything more?  That’s our kind of story.


5. Sunil and Ana

This is one of the few ‘Desi’ Stories dealing with the ‘Platonic’ issue of Friend-Zoning. What could be morose than being the best man at the wedding of the girl who Friend Zoned you. Our guy Sunil did the impossible and ended up finding a Juhi Chawla. Thus, there is always a silver lining.


6. Kundan and Zoya

Death is uncertain and when rooted from Friend Zoning it is most unfortunate. The unique thing about the story is the Friend Zoned guy being massacred by the love interest.  There should be a ‘Friend Zoned Rights Association’ to protect poor souls like Kundan. Why this Dhokadari?





6 Recurring Issues In Every Hindi Serial

1. Light Effects and Background Music
We see an abundance of Light effects and a horror background score in any average Daily Soap running every week since the last 5/7 years, which is more the time required to complete a college degree. The redundant scenes wherein a character reacts and his reply getting echoed. My advice? Grow up people and have some better taste like Gujarati food maybe.


2. The Father of the Pregnant Lady.
The most difficult thing for any TV protagonist (female) is to prove her pregnancy happened out of her husband and not the Bad-Guy lover that crops usually after the happy marriage with the former. The tradition was started successfully in the early 2000s till late to current TV shows and most recently Pavitra Rishta. Well, show much for the word Pavitra.


3.  The Living Room
It is seen in almost every Hindi serial, all the family members sit on the comfortable sofas together in the living room and suddenly a big issue spurs out. Within seconds, every member stands up accordingly with their faces shown from different angles and they confront the guilty party. The mother mostly goes towards the guilty subject (proven at times) and slaps.


4. Death
In life, the only certain thing is Death. But our serials tend to defy the concept ‘death’. They would pop out of nowhere after their demise coupled with plastic surgery. So much for revenge and deception.


5. Duration
The only similar element in both English and Hindi serials is their Run-Time. While the English Serials have a particular ending, the Hindi counterparts have no particular finish and may just end due to Lower TRP or an introduction of new show in that time.


6. The Timeline Change
Almost every Hindi Serial after successfully airing 2-3 years makes a time shift forward to 10 years. The hero starts having Grey Side Burns (to demonstrate ageing) and their Kids finally take the centre stage.  The characters may have changed but they are subjected to the same issues and their following outcomes.



6 People You Encounter Before UCL Finale

1. The Finale Fans
There are the loyalists of ‘one club for life’ and then there are these Finale fans, becomes active just before the UCL Final. They just check in on Facebook and post #HalaMadrid.  FYI, both Real and Athletico are in Madrid. The most common question this season has been, “Why is David Villa playing for Athletico?” And “Where is Mesut Ozil?”


2. The Cricket Fan
They are always glued to the Entertainment Industry aka IPL during the UCL Finale time and would post non-trending stuffs like Go KKR during the match day. Many have no clue about the qualification process of UCL but will become the Fan of the club triumphing or the Runners up. Cricket fans will now turn ‘Madrids’ Supporters leaving their preferable club of ManUTD after all those years. Another record broken by David Moyes.


3. The Geeks
Analyzing the team having the upper hand one week before the build up to the game till the final whistle, the Geeks seem to know every bit details. If you are an Indian Footy Geek, you are meant to hate the IPL fans who believe Arsenal FC have copied their Jersey from Kings X1 Punjab. Vice Versa, Maybe?


4. The Bollywood Celebrities
Deepika Padukone lifted the UCL Trophy hours before FLorentino Perez even though the later invested about 1Billion pounds. On previous finales we have seen faces like Abhishek Bacchan. No wonder Chelsea too has won the UCL.


5. The Casualty
Football is War and all War leads to casualties. In India your family is the one which faces the late night ‘Holocaust’ of football. The worst is Penalties. Not because they end in a horrible way but you have to tell your parents (cricket fan Veterans) they have to wait another 20 mins in addition to the 30 mins they already waited. My advice is influence them into the religion of Football or shift the Television to your Bedroom.


6. The Cable Guy
It  ain’t Jim Carrey. The frustrated cable viewers are bestowed with meaningless coverage of Outstanding Ojha, Virat The Go Getter – nonstop coverage of Star 1, 2, 3 and are compelled to literally beg for Ten Action. The cable guy be like, who needs Ten Action when you can watch Set Max, Six? No question, people are shifting to Satellite Dish.


Note: No offence to the fans of the Clubs mentioned. Pure pun intended.
La Decima.
