The PenPal (Part - 1)

hmmm.. so today i got the time to write about PenPals which i wanted to write for a long time. Anyways, My current absence is attributed to a new website called Mouthshut. It is a website where you can read and write reviews about products. You can see my profile and my first review there.

Well coming to the topic. I had many pen pals in my life, and from different countries as well. Most prominent of them are Nigarish (girl) from Pakistan and Lan Wah (girl) from Vietnam. Of course, I met them via yahoo messenger only. Others were from China (Bellisiyun, girl), Nigeria (Olandebo, male), India (many infact, abhi, purvee, sneha, etc) and then there were friends from the Orkut community also. Well, it all starts with the usual Chat scenario of ASL and so on.. or on orkut with scrap book and then messages and then emails :D

Nigarish was very close to my heart. I met her on Orkut.. and probably she’s still there..with the same unique name of her.. in orkut. We are of same age and we just clicked together. We shared lots of information between us and became the Best penpals. She said that she was on Orkut just because of me..and I told the same thing to her, which was as pious and true as our friendship. As you may agree that Orkut is useless community, thou I do appreciate it for helping me in switching the job with the help of a penpal (Biswa) :D but then scraping is not the best method of communication. So we switched to emails. And believe me, we used to share almost, 3 mails per day from either side. We used to discuss our day today life and many other things. And used to say that our friendship across the border will last forever.

But as you know, forever is a very long time. It stood hardly for 2 year. I don’t know what happened. Its only wild guessing, right from her getting at marriageable age to the guilt of not showing me her picture (thou’ I never insisted on it) to many others. But I cant be certain of one thing. I mailed her to know about her well-being but she never responded back. I still miss her. And losing a very good pen pal, definitely broke my heart.

But, Now, I don’t mail her anymore and my views about Pakistan and Muslims are changed. And I don’t think, I can ever make any Pakistani my friend.. thou’ there was the time when I used to dream of a country “united India” with Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal, Sri-lanka and Bhutan.

Next is on Lan-wah with whom I’m still in contact and we regularly talk via yahoo msg. Well, We will talk more on it in my next post..

Till then,

Update karo Yaar

I knew one day, it will happen like "this" only. No updates and i'll be a lost soul in blog world.
Well, i wont lie, i was busy in playing "
Chess at work" (^_^) and moreover, I had nothing to scribble on.

Following are my views on some past controversies...

Sabarimala case:- Ok damn people. Either you follow the believed custom or leave. Why to hankypanky? Why to groan at hinduism short comings? Dont you look outside hinduism? Brutalities against women in islam and christianity? Please have a look there too. Hinduism has been most liberal religion in whole world and if some people have problem in following certain customs for some specific deity, they are welocme to opt some other diety. why to even bother?
There are 33 crore gods in hinduism and hence there are 33 crore alternatives to opt for. So go ahead and choose any one.

Brazil's Lose: -
They got what they deserve. Poor performance hence out. France is my favorite. They played exceptionally well... they do deserve the cup.

Krrish: - Its such a dumb stupid movie that i seriously cant describe its folly. Dont go and waste your money. Its a poor picturization of "Super commando Dhru" comics. Better you get one of those comics.

Well, thats it for today. I'll soon come up with something good and innovative and which is worth to write.
