^Dates !

I had my b'day with Angelina Jolie and Anil Ambani (the beauty and the billionaire) on 4th and I gave these kids a chance to cut the cake on my behalf, just coz the fact is that I don't really celebrate my birthday.Yea call it a typical Guy's attitude or an unwanted Rakhi Sawant types tantrum, but the fact remains that I never celebrated it, even though I got 22 chances so far. 4th June falls in summer vaccation if you belong to India,so never had to distribute chocolates/sweets in school and never had the whole assembly go literally ga ga over me. Same case in college, but for once I had it away from home coz I had my 1st internship running at that time.Fortunately or unfortunately I did not get the feel of chappals on my back and rotten eggs on my head. But I have beaten up other not-so-lucky-chaps with everything possible on their b'days even during the exams, and a few of them gave their exams standing, coz they had severe butt problems the very next day.

Now coming to the point, this year a lot of people wished me,but the coolest thing is that, I don't even talk to so many of them. They are just physically present and ignored in my friend list like Nagaland on Indian map. A lot of bloggers wished me too, A huge thanks to my Joint bloggers(Abhinav,Mads and Nidhi ) for putting up a special post for me, even though it was expected, but the song dedicated to me was innovative in caps lock. A big thank you, to Pink Orchid for wishing me on her blog, when she was feeling hot and thinking about me (she had 219.2 *F fever for all you dirty minds and 219.2*F = to 104 *C for all you arts students). So many bloggers wished me twice,thrice,messgd me, sent e-greetings, thanks to all of them, it will take another post if I write down all the names. Abhinav Made this header for me and I had to make a 'photo-balti' account just to upload this one, coz my blog template is rude to me, it doesn't allow so many things. Around 230 people wished me including "hey I forgot, belated happy birthday" wishes. Yes I counted the numbers, I was as jobless as Tushar Kapoor.

Recently I had the chance to go to tirupati and a few other famous places in South with my Family of course, as I am not a big fan of Temples, and religious places, I find sitting at home and praying better than standing in a Q and wondering "bhagwan mera number kab ayega?". Anyways after darshan and all I felt nice everywhere, and I don't complain anymore to my parents for dragging me all the way from Kolkata to A.P and T.N for it.

In Vellore I had a tragedy though, It was burning outside so I removed the lower half of my detachable Pant and at the time of checking I wasn't allowed since there is a rule that you can't go inside the temple in shorts,undies or naked for that matter. So they had another option ready for me, ready made traditional Lungis, ranging from 60 bucks to 600 bucks,I guess I wasn't the only one. So I tried my best possible face and looked up to my family members for mercy and to avoid any chance of being an example of a walking fashion disaster. I said I won't go inside but I was forced to wear that Lungi over my shorts and every time someone came closer to me, a fear insinuated that he will step on the edge of the lungi touching the ground & I will fall down or this Lungi thingy will get unfolded. I was feeling like "YAM YES DHONI from Chennai, all u fast bowlers rascalllannnnn, I have the bat, Do u have the ball?, mindhhhh ithhhh !" types. Everyone wanted to have a snap with/of me but thank god ! They don't even allow cameras/celphones inside the Temple, and I removed it the moment I stepped my right foot outside the temple gate and still my whole body was inside the premises.I was damn FAST but not GORGEOUS at all.I guess this was the first and surely for the last time I was wrapping anything around my waist other than a towel or anything that remotely resembles a lungi.

My trip has not ended, still I have to visit a few places in South with my Family of course. So once I am done with my Roaming I will be regular again.With my life's uncertainities and college life getting over I have all the time in the world from next week :)
