In a foreign Country!!!

Hi ppl..

Hope everything is going out well in your lives. Its been a very long time since I put my hand on the keyboard to write things (except fb chats, assignments and g talk chats). And the most special thing is that, this is my first blog post outside my country. As many of you guys know I am now currently doing my Masters in Banking in United Kingdom. So I wanted to tell you people how it feels when your in a foreign land.

I still can’t forget the day when I was standing in the Chennai Airport terminal on the other side of the bars where my parents where standing opposite to me separated by the metal bars. I was exited. Thrilled to get into the Flight and start my career into the next level. Where on the other hand, my mother and father are crying because of the fact that I won’t be able to torture them for some years in their house. It took me a very hard path to come to this level so me, on the other hand was happy and contented. I don’t say that I am not a man of feeling but I am totally different in some situations of life.

In 14 hrs I reached Manchester,I could feel the cold climate because it was 12 in the night. I called my mother from the airport but her bad luck; she didn’t attend my call because in India it was 4 o clock in the morning. After that I called Pooja , yes she picked the call. I knew she will be waiting for my call (Thanks to her College I.V). After that called the one who was previously my close friend and she also took the call and I told her about the things. After that I had to catch a train to the place I am going to live for the next 2 years, Bangor. I got a train to Bangor and reached there by 2 o clock. I would likely mention and thank here Mr. Harinath who was such a sweet brother and whom I will never ever forget in my life. Mr. Hari told about us to his friends and they came there at 2.10 A.M to pick us from the station and made us to stay with them in their house. You must be wondering why am I mentioning the word "us".. I didn’t tell you guys about him na.. He is Shiva. Another sweet person who came with me for studying in my same univeristy. Will tell about him in my up coming posts.!!!

I was provided a room in my University Halls. I slept as soon as i reached their place. On the other hand, back in India my mother was so much worried about me because she haven’t heard from me for a long time. (She missed my call what can I do about that??) She called to Hari who was actually in India and got the number of the person with whom I was and called me at 6 in the morning. Wahoo!! Great work Mummy!! :)

At the start of the next day I went to the University Halls. I felt the air when I came out of the house. I just can’t express the feeling of that. Got my new and went to my new room!!! wow that was just awesome. I loved it on the whole. The place where my University is located is just awesome. It’s a small University Town. Surrounded by very few native welsh people and the rest a lot are students of the university. There are not racial activities, discrimination and other nasty stuffs. The people are so nice and I just love them all.. Love you Bangor :)

This is just my feeling in a foreign land.. But there are many things which I learnt here where back in our country we can never learn all these. Trust me, I am not joking.. But those are reserved for the next!! Love you all

Hello everyone. Sorry for the long gap. I was busy with my personal works. TIME plays a very important role in my life. But I am not able to spend time for my favorite things. So after a long time i found my TIME to write this blog.

As the name says, my new Post is about HUGS. Before writing about this I made a survey which involved my Facebook friends where I asked them what they feel about hugs and weather hugging opposite sex is right or wrong.

As I expected, there were many who made fun of this topic. They were asking "What is wrong in giving a hug you Dumbo"? I patiently listened to them and here comes my answer in this Post. Coming back to the survey many said Hugging is a good way of expressing our love and many very genuinely said I do mind if my girl friend Hugs someone. I first want to Thank each and every friend who made their comments. HUGS to you all!!

When I wanted to write about this topic an NIR friend of mine was kidding me saying "what is there in Hugging a Opposite sex? Are you mad" ?? So all my North Indian Friends and International Friends read this to know what Hugs means in India, to be precise in Tamil Nadu!!!

HUGS is a way of expressing an affection. It is a wonderful way of expressing your love and care on them. Hugs are very common in the Metro's where a guy and girl hugs in front of crowd or a large gathering. But in South India except the major metros such as Bangalore, Hyderabad and some parts of Chennai the rest do not agree hugs. They don't accept the concept of Hugs. Even in Chennai if a guy and a girl hugs every ones attraction will be deviated towards them. We don't accept HUGS so easily here. What is the Problem out here??

The main fact is that the people out here were brought up in a situation where they were not allowed freely to talk with their sisters or even daughters after a certain age. The people were so Conservative about these things and kept checks on these things. They give respect and maintain distance while taking with the females physically which is continued till now. Due to the modernization there were changes in many Parts of India but the change was very small in number. Down here the changes were very low where still in many Parts they still maintain many regulations. Even though we say that we are modern and not the conservative type, it is said that 95% of our guys do not accept their girl friends or wives hugging some one else, even though they say they like being Social.

A Physiological fact says that guys like their mother a lot and Girls like their Fathers more than their Mothers. It is true through out the world. But in India after a certain age they don't be close with their children as they were before. The problem is with the society who don't accept these things. I have an shocking Incident which happened in my Cousin sisters marriage. After her marriage I went and gave a hug to my sister which her in-laws didn't like and advised her not be free like this here after. I was really shocked hearing their statement. What the hell is wrong when a brother hugs his sister ?? This is one known incident which happened in my life, but there are many incidents like this which we are not aware of.

People think that Hug is just a physical thing, they don't understand the value of the term. Times have changed and there are many changes in the Society in very aspect. The conservative type of parents please understand that HUGGING is not a wrong thing, its just giving your care to someone. Give that to your children, your mom, your friends and see what happiness you derive from it and tell them you are there for them always in their life. Accept when your son/daughter gives you a Hug and when he/she gets a Hug.

Everything is about the minds of the people which has to change.Even though you don't accept Hugs please don't give weird looks when you see some one sharing a hug. Some things are hard to accept, but I want the people to change their way they see towards the Concept of Hugs.

For the ones who uses HUGS in other way, You guys please don't spoil the wonderful word Hug!!! This One is only dedicated to the ones who "wants to Hug" but not able to Hug their best friends.

As the name indicates I am here to talk about a Political issue. Usually everyone thinks that youths are not interested in politics but in today's world many number of Graduates are interested in Politics and they show lots of concern towards it, except from joining in it. I am one among the many who shows their concern towards Politics. But the above mentioned topic has nothing in connection with this post except for the last word COIMBATORE. This sudden thought got into me seeing the things happening in and around Coimbatore and in a selfish reason to discuss some different thing apart from love and friendship in my Blog!!

World Classical Tamil Conference is going to be held in Coimbatore in 2010. When this was confirmed I was so happy and proud because this major event is going to be held in my place.

To say a few words about Coimbatore, its a very beautiful place which has the second sweetest water in this world from the SIRUVANI river. The climate is very mild and soft throughout the year. Coimbatore attracts most of the people because of its climate. Even though my place is well know it is not fully developed. It is the fact that Coimbatore has not been cared by the present political party or the Previous parties. Coimbatore has been developed so much only by its people. The most famous N.M.Mahalingam,G.D Naidu, PSG Gropus, Laxmi Mills and other Business people developed this place of them which no one can deny. With out any Political support Coimbatore was developed well compared to other big cities in Tamil Nadu which made the political parties eye on Coimbatore.

From the day of the announcement of the World Classical Tamil Conference we fond great amount of development in the town. The major roads of the town such as Avinashi Road, Thrichy Road and Mettuplayam Road has been elaborated and constructed in the same time disturbing the people of these places. Six way lanes was introduced in Avinashi Road and was constructed fully and after that they came into a Idea of fixing the electricity lines underground and for this the roads were again demolished and the work is still taking place.

Dozens of new buses were thrown into the city by the government. They decided to make Coimbatore City beautiful introducing many new artificial parks near the signals and making a new pavements for walkers in the corner of the roads. Now Trichy Road work is on the go. A 6 months work will be done in just a months time because of the Conference.

I am happy that my place is developing. But ashamed for the reason behind all this. It is a not a Government who is developing this, it is a political party who is behind all these things. I cant be selfish and shut up my mouth just because of the reason, they are developing my place. If they can make tremendous change within a short period to my place why cant they bring betterment to other places in Tamil Nadu. If only a political party can do these things why cant the Government bring these changes in all parts of India. No one can say it is Impossible, because more or less they have achieved these in a very short time here. If this is possible then it can be possible in any place. Time or money is not a constraint here. I wish they conduct this type of Conference in all places ever year so that those places can also be developed.

You may think why I mentioned this a Political Issue at the start of my Post. This may not be a big issue but there are many Political factors at the back end of this Conference. I want to write in a diplomatic way so I avoided those things in this Forum!!

Friendship, In a different way!!

Hello everyone. Sorry to take a long break, was busy with my semester and other stuffs. I am happy to share with you all that my blog has been rated 31st rank throught India in Indiblogger forum. Thanks to you all for giving me the confidence to write more and more!!

This time I choose a very simple topic but going to discuss some different things in that.

"FRIENDSHIP" - The most beautiful relationship in a persons life. Everyone in this world have friends for them. It starts from kinder garden to junior grade, High School to College and in our Work place. Now due to the modernization of the world we find friends even through Internet in Social Networking sites. Whether we know the value of Friendship or not some people like Büyükkökten and Aaron Greenspan knew it and now they make hell a lot of money with it. For those of you who are not aware of them they are the Founders of Orkut and Face book. The very famous Social Networking Sites.

Before you start reading what follows I want you to think a friend of yours in your mind.

Our studies started in the Kinder Gardens, we started to learn the outside world from that point and we started to spend most of our Times outside our homes from that age. We started to miss our parents for the first time and came away from them at least for some hours and mingled with a same age group of persons and there comes the bonding of the word Friendship. It is not just a word actually.

So after parents, Friends takes a very important role in a persons life. At every point of time there may be a person, a friend who might have helped in our tough situation. Life without friends is really very worse. But life with friends can also be worse. I don't know or rather I don't believe whether you are going to agree with my point or not but I wanted to tell you the other side of things. Controversy starts from here!!

First talking about the lighter side, What does Friendship gives us - Happiness, Affection, love and many more things. Friendship gives this all to us. It is the first relationship which we get into in our life. When we are in a group we forget all our sorrows and we tend to forget our darker side. We share things which we cant share with our parents and in some cases Friends become more important than our parents. Friendship total is Happiness. We have lots of friends we give them a call and talk with them all night, text them 24x7 wish them for their birthdays, give them a surprise party , outings, hugs, kisses and what more, many more....

So we enjoy these stuffs with our friends. But i have always wondered one thing in people including me. We all know FRIENDSHIP is such a lovely relationship but even in that we have many separations. Everyone cant be our Friends. Friendship itself comes only by selection, we select the one who can adjust with us and we call them Friends and if someone is not adjustable we say that have attitude so its tough to be with them. But even in our Friends we do differentiate them by close friend, best friend, true friend and whatever. Why does this differentiation come and when the hell did it come into us?? Have you ever thought about this?? I think it as a shame.

Of course, we cant blame any individual here because we have grown up like that. Fine let it be you have close friends, best friends, true friends. Are you the same with everyone?. No, we are not. We show many many difference in friends itself. We share some things with one set of friends and one set of this to others. So i suppose none of us are true to the word FRIENDSHIP including me. I don't care of what others thing by this attitude of mine but this is a reality and I think this has to change. I have a strong feeling that there cant be exceptions in this case. I know the fact that we are just humans our attitude cant change so heavenly suddenly.

Going closer into the fact of Friends and Friendship. I mentioned already before that Friendship has so many values to our lives. But I say Friendship changes according to ages and environment. In kinder Garden you will have a friend and that friend wont be there in your school. In Schools we have two levels, in Junior Grade some one will be your friend and in Middle Grade Friends changes. In high school you will have a friend and it goes good until you finish your college considering school and college are in same location but that Friendship also changes with change of Place of Work. I Strongly admit that there are many exceptions. But you also strongly agree that Friendship changed with ages and environment. If you are still the same in your friendship I BLOW MY HEAD DOWN FOR YOU!! but if not....

I guess that Childhood friendship is the best throught what we would have in our lives, because that friendship doesn't have any ego, we don't have any hatred, we love our friends like anything, we don't have any possessiveness feeling towards anyone. But as ages goes through we get these all. In a adolescence period the first problem which strike in friendship is Possessiveness, but this rapid feeling obviously comes between the opposite sex friends. The most famous problem that we all might have come across. We love our friends too much and that we expect them to be with us every time and if not there comes fights, misunderstanding and even separations. We have many times come across situations where two friends got separated due to possessiveness problem between them, you cant disagree this.

Another most important problem is expectations. We tend to make others believe that we don't expect anything from our friends. But that is totally wrong, everyone expects some things or other from friends. From a birthday wish to regular call if they don't full fill our expectations the problem starts inside Friendship. I came to understand from many life examples that friendship is not just loving some one but mostly its the expectations and fulfilling that expectations. If we don't fulfill that expectations there comes separations.

As i mentioned before friendship is just selection among different people out of those who adjust with you. This may not be a very important factor but it is a criteria of selecting a friend. We usually think that Friendship comes by understanding but it also has to satisfy factors like expectations and adjustment to make your friendship a valid one. A Friendship can sustain only by adjusting with that friend. I know its hard to believe but your conscience know whether what I say is right or wrong.

But FRIENDSHIP is not expecting things or fulfilling the expectations or even adjustablity of that person. Considering these factors only we have made separations in our mind as close friends, best friends and true friends. Friendship has to come from heart as a felling towards their friend. Your brain should never decide who your friend is. Tats really bad that majority of us give chance to the brain to decide our friends.

My Intention is not to talk bad about friends or friendship but to tell you the darker sides in a friendship that we even never thought of.

So for those of you who think what friendship is, this tells you what friendship in Reality is.

In the start I told you to think about a friend of yours. In the end how many friends came across your mind reading this post. That is FRIENDSHIP!! ( and that is my success too )


1. I mentioned very important points because this is a very sensitive topic and you can easily get angry on me. I am happy if you get angry by reading this hoping there are many true friends in this world!!

2. My intention is just make you understand the other side of FRIENDSHIP, I don't tel that this side is bad but this side can be avoided.

3. As a well known thing, even I accept that differentiations in friendship is unavoidable and only some can become close to you.

4. In spite of all these problems(which are not even fully recognized even now) FRIENDSHIP is the best relationship. I agree!!

5. I am not bigger person than you, I cant make any big difference in friendship, but I wanted a small change. So this post was born!!

Does love changes Friendship ???

Love is the most beautiful feeling ever in this world. But friendship is the most trusted relationship in this world. Is it that when someone is in love they should avoid their friends totally??. It sounds silly but there are incidents happening like this in this world and even in my life which made me to write about that in this post. My intention is not to hurt that girl but to make her understand her fault which she denies till now.

(Let the name be something of your choice) and the story starts from here!!

She was the most talkative and most beautiful girl in my class. She talks with all the girls and some guys too. She was from a girls school but she is a very social girl and talks well with everyone and mingles with them so easily. She is very close with a set of girls and guys and she shares everything about her to those set of people and cares for them like anything. Everyone in that gang was so happy having this kind of a girl as their friend and this went on till the second year of the college.

In the final days of the second semester she had a love proposal from a senior and she was thinking weather to accept or not, she told everyone that a senior has proposed her and asked her views openly with everyone in that gang. Since that guy was a very good person and we know him so well everyone said positive about that guy to her. Classes were over and we had holidays for the semester. It was a 15 days hols and at that time there was a sea change in that girl she didn't contact anyone in that time and we thought she was busy studying for her semester and the first day of the semester she came totally changed. She was so quite and acted as if she got a accident in her head. Since it was exam time we didn't ask her anything and the days went like that.

After the semester exams she called and said that she has accepted that guy. We were so happy about her relationship and she was fully fallen in love at that time. Its just 1 month for the start of her love relationship and she reacted so much for everything. Many things made us irritated but we accepted it because of the fact she was our close friend. Days went by, it was the final year of our college everyone was so sad even in the start of the final year and we enjoyed every minute in our college, but this girl was just like a chair,table,desk in my college. She will come in the morning sit in the class and during the break time she used to talk with her guy and after 12 were my classes get over she gets back to her house. She was the same girl who used to stay till 5 in the evening with us, but we didn't tel her anything because we were happy about her love with a very sweet guy.

The same process continued the whole semester fully and there came the final semester even. Those were the final days of our college life and we enjoyed those days like anything, and as usual this girl was in her own world. Everyone in our gang knew she has changed and even they changed their love for such a girl, everyone started to hate her. They didn't want to hurt her so they kept everything in their mind. They were even so upset about the attitude of that girl towards them, but they were friends so they kept everything into their mind and remained silent.

That was the time which was popular for the slam books, these books were passed to each and every person in the class and that girl's slam came to me. I wrote everything i had in my mind about her. I told all her mistakes and others opinion about her, i was not afraid and so i wrote everything she did in the class for the past one year(but sadly all ever negatives). But truly i even mentioned about the beautiful love which she had for that guy. The words which i mentioned were so true and even those negatives which I said. "She did some thing wrong and I told her that she is wrong".

The problem started from then, I thought she will change after reading that slam of mine but what happened was totally different. She was so angry on me and sent me a very long text message to my mobile. (One thing I have to mention here is that, I was so feed up with her character and I decided to go away from a girl like her and even deleted her contact from my mobile) I read that message, she started with the F word and said that I was a trespasser in her life and I have no rights to talk about her life and to add more she told many things and ended with a good bye and told she doesn't want a guy like me in her beautiful life!! I was really pissed off with this word, that fact is that I took that girl from my life long back and she asked me not to come into her life (Actually I was the one stupid guy who helped these two to talk with one an another so that they can understand themselves), I was so angry seeing those things and sent her a reply saying "JUST FUCK OFF". I dint feel sending such a thing to my so called friend because even i don't want her in my life.

She took this problem to my class mates and sadly no one supported her. They advised her in polite manner about her mistakes in the past one year. They said that she was not their old close friend and has changed so badly. One even said, she doesn't know the value of friendship, Actually i told them not to give her any advise because she was so much deep inside the world love where she lost the word Friendship in her life and its a waste of time giving her any advise. They didn't hear what I said and advised her a lot of things. She replied she will rectify everything, but she will not talk with me again and my friends said, even I am not interested to talk with her.

A day passed and as I expected there was no change with her, but poor others were totally shocked with her attitude again. I know how bad they felt which made me to write this POST about That "so called friend."

Will she ever know the value of friendship in her life ??

I don't think so!!!


1. One thing I have to tell you girls is that I have no Intentions to say bad about girls, so please my dears do not get offended. but accept the fact that guys are the same even before love and after love with their friends. ( There may be some exceptions )

2. FRIENDSHIP is very important in a life. No one can leave that for LOVE. Its pity that some like the above mentioned does that.

3. I have no intentions to say against that girl, what i wrote in this post is "THE THOUGHTS FROM MY MIND" i have enclosed only true things here.

4. I said even i hated her - I don't support my point, i know its wrong on me in hating her just because she avoids me, you can ask where is my friendship for her then? but its the fact that we cant have one sided true friendship!!!

4.Its not the expectations we had to cause a problem like this. We never expected anything from her.

5. And at the last, I am not angry on that girl because we get angry only on the ones whom we like. I think i wasted my affection for that kind of the girl. I feel for it!!( I mean for wasting my affection )

“Karthik, hey idiot why are you running up and down the mall”?, Ashok called me from back. You are really acting crazy from the time we reached Bangalore. What the hell are you thinking in your mind? Nothing Ashok, was searching for a friend of mine, I replied him silently. You are bloody gone nuts, he shouted.

Here, as usual you order some thing for me too. He gave me the money and went to find a place for him. The one thing I like in this kind of places are the people, they follow queue system so perfectly. They wait for the other person to order and then only they enter near the counter. Since it was a week day there were no big crowd, I was the fifth in the line. I dint think what to order for Ashok, but Priya was running in my mind. I was angry on myself for missing her. The queue moved and it was my turn finally.

Good evening sir, May I know your order please? The waiter asked me so politely. Give me one Mc Chicken Burger and a Coke, I replied him and paid what he asked. I waited exactly for a minute to get my order. I took my plate and went searching for that friend of mine. He was sitting at the last making me to walk more. I gave him his burger and took my coke. Within some minutes I finished my coke. I was so thirsty and wanted even one more drink, but this time I ordered for a free drink, “WATER”.

Mean while Ashok finished his burger and we both came out of McDonalds. We still had 4 more hours left for our bus so we had to be there in the mall for some more time. I was in no mood to walk so I told Ashok that I will be in Landmark reading some books. So I reached Landmark again and went into the book section and planned to read a new book from the fiction section. I took a book and started to read it. The book was about a female who became a serial killer. The book was same like the Sidney Sheldon’s “If tomorrow comes”. So I lost interest in that book and started to walk into the Art section.

When I was about to take a book I heard someone calling my name, I knew it was Ashok and I dint turn purposely. After that I dint hear my name so I left and was busy searching for some books and at that time I had a heavy blow in my head. I became so angry and turned back to use the F word. But I got a hug when I turned back all of a sudden. It was from the beautiful girl, Priya. The hug was so tight and I felt that she too missed me with that hug itself. She didn’t talk anything but was hugging me for some long seconds and I was taken aback by this very long hug of hers. Hey Priya, what happened? I started with this. She hugged me exactly for 40 seconds and this was the longest hug I ever had in my life. As soon as she finished hugging I thought she would start something but as an impulsive reaction again from her she kissed my cheeks this time. I was totally shocked with this from her, but to my surprise she didn’t keep her lips long in my cheeks. I totally didn’t know what to say, my face was like I had a high voltage of shock. I didn’t want to take any more chances, this time I moved away from my place and asked her, nothing! Yes. It was like as if my lips were closed tightly by someone. But without giving me any trouble she started to talk with me.

How are you Mr.??? She started. Oh, so soon madam forgot my name even, I started with an angry tone even though I got a hug and a kiss from her. Hey, just shut up okay! How can I forget you? Why should you remember me? I asked her. I know this is a very silly question but I have to make her understand that I am still angry on her. Ok Karthik, I am sorry for not giving you my number. Mom came that day so only went there without even telling you a bye. Thank god she didn’t see me hugging you, she said and I could feel the happiness in her face and in her words too. I was thinking why she said that she was sorry for not giving her number. (I dint even have that idea to ask her number that day). You know what Karthik I missed you so much, I never missed anyone like I missed you man, she said in a childish way.
She didn’t give me time to talk; she was talking about a lot of things which happened in her class and many incidents which happened in her house. I didn’t do anything other than listening to her patiently. (Girls like listeners of their talks even though it has nothing inside it.) After a long time I had a call from Ashok, I told him to wait in the store and that I will be back in some time. I told her that I am going to leave Bangalore tonight and her face went so small, I expected this reaction from her actually. I didn’t want to leave her, but Ashok had to go early to the bus stand because his Chennai Bus is earlier than mine. So with a sad face I told her I have to leave now. Priya’s face went dull. We both exchanged our numbers this time. Whenever I reach Coimbatore lets meet there and do keep in touch Karthik. Priya said in a sad voice. Before leaving we hugged each other. Bye Priya, miss you!

I rushed to Landmark, Ashok was waiting there all alone I asked my sorry and we both rushed to the Bus stand. We reached at time and his bus had just arrived. He rushed into the A.C Volvo and made himself comfortable and came back again. We both had juice and came back to our respective buses.

No one was inside the bus. I saw my ticket and my Seat No was 32. I went and kept my bag and sat in the seat thinking about Priya. She was still in my thoughts very fresh. I thanked this bus which gave me a friend like her. After some time I heard a voice and opened my eyes, a beautiful young lady was standing near me. Seat No.31 is mine, that girl said.


THE END.....

Mar 18, 2010


( Those who are new to my blog please finish Seat No.22 first to understand this story)

I was happy and I had a different feeling in my tummy, not because I dint eat anything from the morning but the fact I have reached Bangalore. I came for a two day Crash Course here. I was not very much interested to it even though it means a lot to me. The only thing which was interested at that moment was Priya. Even though I was angry with her like anything I still wanted to meet her, to be exact I was yearning to meet her. I wanted to ask her many things; I have a lot of questions for her, When I was thinking all these in my mind I heard Ashok’s voice at the back. He was on a call, actually on a very long call. I was thinking who was this guy talking in Roaming, “Was talking with Sharmila mam, she asked us to come at 10 o clock tomorrow morning and the class goes till 5 in the evening” he answered all the queries which were running in my mind. It was a big disappointment for me. I was totally shocked hearing that from him, “I thought I would go and meet Priya in her college but they ruined my plan”, I was cursing them in my mind.

We were walking towards the platforms and even then, I was searching for Priya thinking that she must be somewhere out there. I know these things are very cinematic, but I had that small hope that I would meet here anywhere in the station. As guessed before I didn’t see her anywhere in the station but my eyes scanned lot of good chicks!!! (sorry) girls out there in the railway station. I would have scanned nearly a hundred good looking females but still my mind was searching only her. (To tell you guys something Bangalore has many good looking girls, you can find minimum two good looking girls for every second. In the ratio is 2:1)

I crossed the road with my friend and he called for an auto for the Hotel, we were going to stay. But I sent it back so that I can walk and find out for Priya anywhere out there in the city. This is the craziest thing I have ever done in my life. I was crazy about that girl even though I say I am angry on her. But I pity my friend whom I made to walk with me for some kilometers, after all he is my true friend and he always has the right to take a share in my problems so I dint worry much about him. There were many girls walking out with their friends but Priya was not there. I was disappointed again and again but still my mind was searching only for her. I like the feeling of getting disappointed by her. It was totally a different feeling. “I have gone nuts”, I thought in my mind.

We reached our room and had a big nap. I was tired like anything and so slept for a long time. We got up again and went to a nearby hotel to have our dinner. Food in Bangalore is very sweet, they add sweet to everything. Especially sambhar’s are sweeter when compared to that of Tamil Nadu. Anyways I enjoyed the taste of it and had a good dinner. I reached back to the Hotel and watched IPL match and slept after some time, thinking not to be late for the morning class.

As expected we got up late, but the difference is that we are not ladies who take so much time to dress themselves. We got ready as soon as possible and rushed towards the auto stand. Another problem in Bangalore is that they give good respect for Tamilians. When they come to know that you are a Tamil then the rates for your journey will be very high. We should bargain with them and then only you must get into their autos . By arguing with the auto driver It took some more minutes for me to reach the center. And at last we reached the center by 10.20. The class started once we went and it was a very useful session for both of us. We had a lunch break of 20 minutes and after that class started as usual. This schedule was the same the second day even. I had a good time inside the class. Our second day class finished by 3 o clock itself. The pressure was high in the two days but I enjoyed learning with them. I have to admit the fact that I forgot Priya in these two days because of the high pressure classes.

We went back to our room and took rest for some time and vacated the room since the time has elapsed. We have bus scheduled at 11 in the night. I was thinking about where to go and my friend Ashok gave an idea about going to “FORUM” a very famous shopping mall in the city, I was not interested to go there because I was dead tired by the classes and traveling, but we had no other go because we have to while away the time till 10 o clock at lest. So we took a bus from our hotel. I was so tired that I slept in the bus itself. After some time I was awaken by my friend and we both got done from the bus and reached FORUM.

FORUM is the best place in Bangalore where you can find all the best girls in the city. I have already been there many times and I like the LANDMARK shop in the second floor. I stood up in the elevators which made me reach the second floor. I went inside the shop giving my bag to the securities inside the shop. LANDMARK is the biggest shop in FORUM and has a wide range of books and other items. I love LANDMARK for the collection of books which they have with them. I entered the book section and took a book from the new arrival and sat down in a small stool, which will be present in the shop for you to sit and read comfortably. I started to read the book and after some minutes the current got down. Usually the power comes in one or two minutes but power was down for 5 minutes this time, which is a rare incident in FORUM. I went from my place to see what has happened, I was walking near the counter when the power came. By the time my phone started to shout its ring tone and quickly I put my mobile is silent and when I was about to keep the call in my ears I saw Priya going out of LANDMARK. I was really shocked at the first sight, I quickly cut the call and went running for her towards the exit.

I ran fast to catch her but some one stooped me suddenly. It was the security, he demanded an explanation of the book which was in my hand when I came out of the Store. I was so angry on that guy, he will make me miss Priya again I thought in my mind. I told quickly that I came searching for my friend and gave the book to him and went down for Priya. I ran inside the corners of the mall to find her out. I went down with the help of the elevators. I searched for her down and again climbed the elevators my-self this time to be faster. But I was not able to see her anywhere. I was so upset, my face changed like anything. Disappointment became my very close friend but I hated that friend to be with me. I became thirsty running for that stupid female. I wanted to have something so I went towards Mc Donalds. There was a long queue and I was standing at the last when I heard some one calling my name I turned back…..

To be continued…

the one who called "Karthik" cant be Priya.. I didn’t stop here for a twist, just because of the reason my hand is paining typing for such a long time…..

Seat No.22. The end of a journey (Contd..)

I made myself seated in a way so that the girl is not disturbed. She looked at me for the first time very closely and said "no problem for me you please sit comfortably", Her voice was so sweet. Her face even in the dim light was so clear and bright. You can see her face for hours, for sure you wont get bored. But still I didn't want to talk with her because I was still angry. And she is also already in fumes being made to sit with a guy, so I just kept quite. I took my I Touch and started to hear songs. I closed my eyes and slept very soon.

After some time I was disturbed by some thing. I suddenly opened my eyes and was shocked, the girl was not able to breath properly, she was suffocating. I dint know what to do, I looked at the time it was around 1. All were sleeping and I dint know whom to call, I was in a hurry to do something but I was helpless. That girl suddenly waved her hands and i went near her. "Medicine fell down"!! she told me and started to breath heavily this time. I was afraid seeing her like this, but i made my self calm and started to search for her medicine. I moved her from the side where she was sitting and placed her comfortably in my seat. I went down her seat and searched her medicine with my cell phone light. I was down in my knees searching for that medicine, at last I was succeeded it was a inhaler I took it and gave that to her. In a couple of minutes she was normal and after seeing that only i became normal. This is the first time im experiencing such a thing so I was shocked and was not able to come of it for some time. I was still down with my hands on my head. Excuse me, Are you fine?? The voice came from that girl, she was looking fine now. She gave me her hand and pulled me up with a big smile in her face. I smiled back and sat in her seat. Are you fine? I asked her this time. I am really fine now. I usually have this breathing trouble but today it became worse because I put my inhaler down and so the problem started, I am so sorry for disturbing you. Hey no problem, I was a bit tensed seeing you like that!! Thank god your fine now, I replied to her softly not to disturb those who were sleeping. You were so sweet to me, anyways this is Priya Im doing my 2nd year BBM in Mount Caramel,Banglore. I am Karthik, I am doing my final year In PSG College of arts and science. We both introduced ourselves for the first time and gave a hand shake.

So your from Coimbatore, she asked me. Yes, I am from Coimbatore and what about you Priya?. I am also from Coimbatore but I study in Bangalore. Came to see my mom. Her voice as I said before was so sweet and It was a pleasure for me to hear her voice. It was again Priya, she started to talk again, So tel me Karthik, how was your Bangalore trip, Is this the first time for you or have you been here before. She asked me lot of questions and I was patiently answering all here questions. She must be a chatter box, I thought in my mind. I wanted to ask her why did she make a big fuss for sitting next to me, but was in a hesitation and had a dilemma weather to ask her or not. Are you fine? You have some thing to ask me i guess, she asked me softly. oh!! you could have studied Psychology Priya, You are great in that I replied her. Oh so you have some thing to ask me then, so ask me?. You talk so well with a guy and why you don't want to sit with a guy?. You study in Bangalore and why are you so conservative about these very small things and all??. Your question itself has my answer Mr.Karthik, I am very conservative. Just because I am in Bangalore you cant judge me so easily. I am not that Bangalore type of girl as you think. I may dress modern and talk a lot, but I will think a lot before talking to a guy, especially. To tel you one thing Mt.Caramel is a girls college. I cant just like that sit with some one in a night travel. Will you make your sister to sit like this?? She turned the question to me this time. I was not able to answer her, The way she asked me again made me impulsive. OK fine!! I am sorry for asking like that, I replied to Priya and pushed my seat back to sleep.

Cut down your sorry Karthik. Listen I just said you since you asked, I am very candid to those I like and she hit me slightly. I was stupefied hearing what she said. Priya don't say things just to make me fine, I replied her. Hey really Karthik. I like you. I was noticing you when I had my breathing problem you were so worried about me and you wanted to some how help me but you dint know what to do, and I was so impressed by the things you did to help me. So I like you. Listen up Priya, Its very common to help some one when they are not well I would have done this to anyone. Hey, She interrupted me. Yes Mr.Sweetheart you would help anyone and even i would help any one. But there is a difference in my case. I irritated you so much and made you stand next to your seat itself, I could guess how you mind set would be at that time and when you came to sit next to me also you maintained so much distance between you and me. These things made me like you. You get it now?. I was totally amazed hearing all these things, girls mind set is totally different from that of the boys. They think a lot more advanced than the guys and they even talk with us only when they are done with their analysis about a guy, I thought to my self.

I pulled my seat front to make myself comfortable to talk with her. Ok priya, I do agree, I was angry by the way you behaved, but I am not that cruel to laugh when you are in trouble. I am not a sadist. Ok Karthik, just chill. Hope at least now your fine with me. Yes yes, I am very much fine with you now, I replied her. Its almost 3 o clock now, you don't want to sleep? I asked Priya. No, I cant sleep now. I am not feeling sleepy too, and do you me mind talking wit me karthik, she asked me. I am not so dumb to say no, to that beautiful girl when she asked me to talk.

We started to talk and we talked and talked and talked. We talked about everything, religion, politics, love, friendship and everything. She likes to hear songs and so we both was listening to songs for a while. After some time while she was hearing songs she slept on my shoulders and I too closed my eyes for some sleep. Not even 30 minutes I woke up suddenly. Even the sun was about to wake up in a while and the clouds were not dark. It was 6.30 and we came to Coimbatore. I woke up Priya and took my bag from the top and kept it down. She slowly opened her eyes, I asked her to get up. She got up and took her bag and took a comb from that and started to comb here hair. Girls are always like this, they care so much about their appearance even at 6.30. No one can change them, I thought this in my mind. After that the bus stopped and she had a call from her mom and I also had a call from my dad. We were still in our seats while the rest of the passengers were getting down. I finished my call and was waiting for her to finish her call. I stood up with my bag near Seat No.22, she finished her call and stood up with the bag. We were looking each others face and smiled together. I dint know what she thought she came close and gave me tight hug saying "WILL MISS YOU KARTHIK"!! I was really shocked by that, I dint expect this sudden hug from the so called conservative type of girl. Without giving time for me to talk she went out off the bus, when i went to call her my cell phone rang, I took it to cut the call but it was my dad, I was scared this time, if he was standing outside the bus and calling me I am going to get caught for this hug. I slowly pressed the answer button, Where are you Karthik?? my dad asked. I am in the bus dad, just now the bus reached. Where are you? Are you coming to pick me up. I asked him quickly. No, you better come by yourself. My heart beat started to beat normal only after hearing that. I cut my dad's call and went out for Priya.

When I came out I was totally shocked, No one was there and Priya was also not there. I searched for her every where near the bus and the bus stand but I was not able to find her anywhere.

I was deeply disappointed by Priya. She could have at least bid a bye to me. I don't even have her number even. She talked with me so well but she left me suddenly. I could still feel her hug which she gave me. Where am I going to find her? - These was the things which were running in my mind at that time.

I didnt fall in love with her. But my heart is beating a bit fast when I think about her. Its just fate which made her sit near me and now its just fate which made me miss her. If my dad wouldn't have called I could have talked with her. FATE played things beautifully. I was a upset,angry,sad. I had a mixture of emotions. For sure this is not love, but I dint want this relationship to end so soon. With all these heavy thoughts the journey ends!!!

FATE has played its game, but .. but.. The game is not over!!

Seat No.22 - A small story about a long journey..

It was 10.30 already and its going to be late now, I thought in my mind and rushed from the room. Hey auto, I shouted so hard which made 2 autos stop at the same time. I got into the auto and directed him to go to KPN travels. My heart was beating a bit fast now, because I have only half an hour more to get into the bus and return to coimbatore. I closed my eyes and was praying that the bus must not have left. After a while, the auto went near the bus which made me so happy, I paid him more than what he asked and rushed into the bus.

Seat No.22. I went to my seat throwing my bag at the top and turned the A.C towards me. I took my cell phone and called mom, Ma I am in the bus now. Will call you after I reach coimbatore,Bye. Saying all these I ended the call. Its not that i don't like my mom, I don't have balance to talk with her more than a minute!!! I took my I Touch and Started to close my eyes. But I was not able to sleep because of the passengers who were walking up and down the bus. I closed my eyes and was trying to sleep but suddenly I was shook by some one. It was the conductor, he asked me my ticket which I gave him. Sir, do you mind changing your place, he asked me politely. For what reason sir? I responded to him. Seat No.21 is a lady sir, so can you adjust with some male passengers in some other place, he asked me patiently. What is the problem if I sit with a lady, Am I going to rape her or something, I thought in my mind. I don't want to make this a big issue so I told him OK!! and asked him where to sit. He asked me to wait till the next stop so that the I can be seated with some male passengers in the next stop. The lights were put off and the bus started and I was standing near my seat. How great am I to stand and come paying 500 for the ticket, I thought to myself. When I was thinking this, one female came near me. She was dressed in jeans and had a scarf tied around her neck and covering some parts of her face. She kept her bag in seat no.22 and placed herself very comfortable in Seat no.21. I was very irritated and I showed my irritation in my face even, anyways she is not going to see my face because there were no lights. Why cant this lady sit near me, Women ask equal rights in everything and they cant even sit near a man in a bus and what the hell are they going to do with those rights ,I just thought this in my mind even though I respect women.

The next stop came and by the time this lady covered her face with some cloth and started to sleep. The remaining passengers got into the bus. I was struggling standing in the center of the bus and was a disturbance to those passengers. In 5 minutes the seats were full with passengers except my seat which had a bag. I called the conductor to arrange a seat for me. He went to the other passengers but no one was willing to change their seat because they were mostly couples and those ladies for sure wont prefer a change of seat. I looked differently at the conductor this time, seeing my reaction he called the lady and the lady got up i was totally shocked this time. It was not a lady but a beautiful girl. The conductor told her that he cant change my seat and asked her to adjust with me. She started to shout at him and asked him to change her seat atleast. The conductor got angry and said "If you want sit here or else you can get down from the bus" and left from that place. Her face went small and tears were standing in her eyes. I felt bad seeing that girl so i went near her and said very softly to her that I wont be a disturbance to her. She moved her bag from that placed. I don't think she was convinced by my way of speaking, its that she had no other go rather than sitting next to me, I said to my self.

I made myself seated in a way so that the girl is not disturbed. She looked at me for the first time very closely and ....

Will be continued soon.....

My last Personal Post!!!

My first two posts are related to my personal life. I hope it was different and i believe that you like it. When I was thinking what to write the next, my close friend Vishnu called me to congratulate regarding the blog and to share his best wishes. After saying his comments he asked me to stop writing about personal stuffs and to start some thing new. So taking his advise, Let me stop writing about personal stuffs!!! (Maybe I will continue it at a later stage). But this will be my last personal post.

I guess no one in this world is perfect in all the things. and if you tell there are many who are perfect, then let me tell you "I am not perfect in all the things"!!! Yes, even I am a ordinary common human and i have done some mistakes in my life. I have felt bad for those mistakes and I have even made an effort to rectify those mistakes. But i have one such incident which is deep inside my heart which is still pricking me like anything.

The incident goes some years back when i was in my 10th Standard.

I was childish, funny and I used to take everything very lightly. There was a miscommunication between me and a friend of mine. Let the name of the person be " X ". One day X called me after me joining 11th in my same school. I was angry on X just because of the reason X dint call me for a very long time after changing his/her house to a different area. I told something sarcastically which X dint not understand and misinterpreted differently. That was the last call I got from X and that was the end of our relationship.

After that I heard X was not willing to talk anything to me anymore.

Even though the mistake is on both sides I take it fully as my mistake. I wanted to tel X a big sorry, for hurting you so much in all these years.

X, you have to clearly understand that even I was angry with you for some very true reasons. Even I have some questions to you which you can not answer !! . I don't know whose side is the mistake, but till now I think I am wholly responsible for what happened.

I dint write this to make you understand about me. I just wanted to share with everyone that I have also done some mistake and I FEEL SORRY FOR IT.

This is not just to share some thing with you all. Even you ask your mind, If you have anything which makes you feel bad, take a bunch of sorry's and give it to the X in your life!!!!

What if your close friend does a mistake??

You can have 1000 friends but the fact is that they should be true to your affection. I have one such friend (name not disclosed) who studied with me(place of study not mentioned). He acts very smart, not in his looks alone. He is close to me and I am true to him as a friend. But the way he reacts to things makes me irritated too much!!! The problem with him is that he thinks he is great in everything, thats because his school friends have made him like that i suppose. They must have been supported him in all silly things he did. All these things have made this guy worse now.

He reacts for even silly things that really makes me wild. Even for a joke if some one makes fun of him, then tats all he will create a big scene, but he will do that to others. No one in the class likes to talk to him just because the fact he reacts too much for even ordinary things. He cares a damn about them, oh fine i accept that he is not depended upoon them for anything, but still if no one has a pinch of love for you then why the hell you are in this world as a person!!!

I accept the cruel fact that i am his close friend. I myself some times feel bad being his friend. But i am usually adjustable with every one, so it is possible for me to be with him. Even my close gang of friends dont wanna talk with him about his kind of behavior. So what will happen when a guy of this kind does a mistake.??

When he does a mistake he wont accept it totally. He will change the problem totally in some other way, it is not some thing he should be proud of himself. He is not adhustable totally in any cases. I used to think " how will this guy going to face the world which will be toatlly different???" I cant do anything rather than to pity about him. It is not that I dint do anything to make him realise things. I have tried all ways to do some thing with him, but everthing was in vain. Once i hit him for the way he behaved. But he dint change!! He is still the same even now.

This post is not writtin to tell things bad about a single individual, but i just want you to think how many friends are truly there for you.

(I dont want to hurt anyone with this post. If it hurts anyone Im sorry!!!)

What my mind thinks the first??!!

I wanted to share about me first.. I mean let me tel what my mind says about me. I am a very ordinary guy who has very strong feeling towards friendship and love. Love is the Beautiful feeling you can find in this entire world, it is not that friendship is below love, both are the same. I love every one out there in the world. I only have two type of friends, close friends and very close friends. I share everything with my friends cos i don't want to hide anything from them about me, when it comes to my close friends I share my problems, sorrows, feelings and my tears some times. I wont deny the fact that i love to be loved by them, i don't want to hate anyone but there are exceptions!!!. People think i am sweet,yes i am but not with everyone. I have some people who i hate like anything in this world. They were my so called close friends even some time back.

You cant expect your friends be the same as you are, i wont expect them to be like me.But i Will expect their love for me, that's the only thing i expect from my friends. Being a very cool person,i am also emotional at times, i am very expressive but when i am sad i will not express any thing to anyone. For me, i love to share my happiness but when i am sad i wanted to keep to my self. But when the bottle is full you have to pour the water some where ryt,so i share it with some one whom i like or some one who i believe.

I am happy to tell that there are many people in this world for me. They be with me in my bad times and support like anything. My presence makes them happy, my talks makes them happy, my fights makes them happy!! so on the whole, I make many people happy. I think that's the best quality which i posses. I love to make my atmosphere very happy and lively, I do it where ever i be.!! To be honest again there are many who don't like me, i cant say i don't care for what others think, but the fact is that i cant help it out. I may some time think "why the hell i have to prove others about me"?!! That's cos i don't show any attitude to anyone.. I hate being like that but i love people for the attitude they show!!! (only some).

There are times where i got into trouble because of me itself. Yes!! As I said I am open, but not everyone likes that. I say things openly, some can accept it but many are not accepting that. They say I talk too much but i don't care for what they say but some times it hurts. "It is very difficult to live a life for Ur self in this world. " But still i try to be the same, i can't lose my originality ryt!!! I am the same and I will be the same in the years to come.

This post is delegated for all those true hearts who love me like anything, who likes me and who hates me!! Love you all for what you are!!!
