So much happened to me in such little time... but the main highlight of my LIFE was my trip to Corfu. Trust me, it can be Life-changing! The most interesting was when I was on top Pantokrator... now that was DEFINITELY life-changing for me! Because I was above the clouds, and the most interesting was to witness such a moment in the day, where on your left, you see the moon, and on the right, you see the sun setting. I never believed in astrology, because I personally never thought that planets can emit vibrations to people, but I think this trip to Greece changed my entire concept of the word Astrology. It's a very interesting topic, and now I'm a believer! I was at my highest intellect when on top of the mountain... the proof: I spent 4 hours of pure maths (and I wanted to... yes, I know, I AM a workaholic, and I finally admit it!) to develop a 100% win-ratio at Roulette! (For those who don't gamble [ironically, like me!] it's this game where you bet on numbers, and you spin a wheel, and when the number you chose comes, you win a lot of 'cashola'!)
What was even more interesting was the Greek people... they know so much about everything in General, and especially India! I happened to befriend this super-friendly elderly crew member of the Cruise I went on (we'll come to that later, lol!), and HE was telling ME about various Indian cultures... and I was so impressed! I was getting a feeling that I was talking to an Indian! Ok, so maybe I'm exagerating, but this guy happened to know about Ayurveda, Deepak Chopra, Sai Baba and etc. So it was really fun for me to interact with ALL (now, im not exagerating!) the Greek people I came across in Greece!
Now, the cruise. What more to say than those 2 words? It was A-MA-ZING! And funnily, it was not a 5-star hot-shot cruise, but a very basic one, and that itself was also very fun, especially if you are on it with a bunch of 40 awesome college mates! There was a disco, 2-3 bars/restaurant, Internet (I was lucky to NOT have it, because it wasn't working!), a mini-casino (where I tested my knowledge on Roulette!), and best of all, an A-WE-SOME View! For more details, Google for Minoan Lines, and you will know all. Actually I went on this thing called a ferry, because it was a cruise that took cars and other vehicles. But I simply call it a cruise, because it had everything that a modest cruise needs!
And once we reached there, the fun had just begun. We lived in "Bungalows" at a place called 'Karda Beach', and it was superb! Once again, the people were super friendly and I loved it! And once in Corfu, some people went to the city, we all went to the beach once (yup, I finally found back my love for swimming over there!), some went for paragliding, etc. but we ALL HAD FUN! And that was the essential.
The cherry on the cake was October 2 2009, Gandhi Jayanti. Celebrated in my own way on the boat by fasting and renouncing to ANY sorts of Violence! And it was the best October 2 of my life.. never was so contemplative in my life... just couldn't stop thinking that day... and thinking, and thinking, and thinking... about LIFE in General... about Violence... about Friends and Family... practically all my human values were put to the test that day. And I'm sure Mr.Mohandas must be smiling up there from the heavens. Lolz!
But as all trips to "Heavenly places" must end, mine ended in a BRUTAL manner... went through so much stress that my return was actually Hell... but the essential is that I'm fine now, no more stress, and I'm as cooool as I always was... (even though some people think that I'm not cool... lol! I don't really care, I always was a huge auto-critic, so now I'm glad I can find SOME positives in me, hahaha, lol!)
And when one is not doing well, he should be thankful to cricket if that pushes up the mood! Especially with a tournament like the Champions League! How cool is that? I mean, I never thought Modi would pull out such a HUGE tournament after the IPL... but he just keeps surpassing himself, all the time! And that impresses me so much!
Will mention my favorite 4 teams so far in the BCFQC at the end... so keep hanging since we're nearly there!
Last to mention is movies...
hmm, so what if What's Your Rashee failed to many people's expectations... I dont really care, since I'm 10000% sure I will enjoy it! I hate critics who just bash movies without analyzing. I'm not saying Rajeev Masand was wrong, but on the contrary, he was right and harsh in criticizing the movie. I still say HATS OFF to Priyanka, Priyanka, Priyanka, Priyanka, Priyanka, Priyanka, Priyanka, Priyanka, Priyanka, Priyanka, Priyanka and Priyanka! Also a huge bravo to Harman Baweja, he is surely going to impress me, and I know my intuition! But the biggest bravo goes to the chief in question, Mr. Ashutosh Gowariker. All the best to him, I hope this movie rakes in SOME collections at least...
Now BLUE... the movie looks interesting... hoping I will enjoy it, can't be so sure about it, since the opinions are quite divided as usual.
And now, time for the BCFQC! *applause*... LOL!
