On a rather embarassing note this happened to me:
My sister called me today morning and enquired whats up?...So I said "Oh the usual, whats up with you ?"..And she sort of oh-ahed and said the usual and proceeded to update me on minor tidbits of her current wherabouts and doings...and then she kind of passed the phone to my mom who finally brought it home my clod-like (or should I say dubya-like) head that it's her birthday today...I could have died there right then coz my sister never once forgets my birthday, and i always do !!
This sort of an occurence has occured to me N(n-->infinty) times with the small variation being the person involved.Sometimes it has happened multiple times with a single person( as unfortunately with my sister) Most of my friends are inured to this behavioural defect on my part because when you get right down to it they aren't really all that "remembery" types themselves so what-the-hey and life goes on...

Wise heads have told me more often than once that I'll have problems with my girlfriend to be...heck I'll settle for that problem, but later...for the moment allow to me to make public amends to my sister ...
HAPPY Birthday DIDI!!

Arre OSAMA!!!

As a Sholay fan I just could'nt resist this pathetic pun as a title to my long overdue blog...but publicizing my highly original(??) pun was not the sole intention of this blog.

The intention was to draw your attention to the fact that as the weeks have drawn on, both US presidential candidates have looked more and more foolish with each passing day.I can't quite say for sure whether Kerry substantially differs from a Neanderthal or Bush from an Amoeba. Frankly, this US election makes me think that for all the inconsistencies and outrages we have to put up with in our leaders, atleast they manage to prevent outright displays of "zero IQ-ness" to coin a term...quite frankly Kerry's "I have a plan" is only marginally less irritating then GWB,Jr's " We are at war with these terrorists".And then out of the blue comes Osama's tape...

Its interesting, and probably an abhorrent opinion for several, but I beleive Osama was looking far more dignified in his TV appearance then any of the US Prez hopefuls. In fact who knows, he may have even endeared himself to that section of the US public which ensured that Farenheit 9/11 was such a huge hit...

The CIA report on Iraqi WMD

Saw a sizeable snatch of this live feed ( Congressional hearing) dealing with the CIA's report on the Iraqi Weapons Of Mass Destruction (WMD) Program....the report was vastly underreported in our national dailies which wasn't surprising...but, if anyone saw it, then their hearts would respectively bleed/boil for Mr.Bush...depending on whether they are Bush fans/haters...There was this Mr.Duefler (CIA agent and former UN weapons inspector) expectedly facing the heat from the Democrat Senators( especially one Sen. Levin) and from whatever little I saw of the hearing, there was only bad news for Mr.Bush and his attempt to get re-elected..add to this, his bungled up debates with Kerry and it's fair game to say that Bush's election goose is effectively cooked...
