21.12.2012- It Didn't End!!

21.12.2012

It’s been a month since I last wrote here. An important exam and then some pending works took over a lot of time. And then a trip plan.

Since last two weeks or so, I am busy making plans for a trip during Christmas somewhere in the hills, with my college friends. It has been long time since I have gone anywhere with them. I am really looking forward to this trip. We have decided to leave on 23rdand to be back on 25th December.

So, when everything was decided and done; I saw a message on my friend’s FB wall- Leave your last message to the world.

HELL. The world is going to end tomorrow. How can I forget this?

21.12.2012- this date has freaked billions of people all over the world. Some has taken it so seriously that they have left their job and are spending ferociously through their credit card without giving a damn about how they will be repaying if the Mayans decide to postpone their plans for few more centuries.

It is funny actually how a person or community or a ritual can take over humans (with brains that can rationalize things) so easily. Nostradamus’ prediction failed a decade ago when the world took him too seriously. Still, we haven’t learnt our lessons.

So, when I saw this message; I said to myself- even if 1% this happens, in any case, if Mayans get it right; then should I cancel the trip and sulk? Should I start calling my near and dear ones now? Should I pick up my bucket list and start striking things off? Should I propose to the girl whom I always had hots for? There are too many things and too little time. Or I took too much time to realize it.

Even if it is happening, where are the signs? We have all seen Hollywood movies; how bizarre things start happening when something wrong, calamitous is about to happen. But in my daily life, everything is same; everything is ordinary.

1. The dogs are still barking and still hate cats.

2. My boss is not kind to me. The office life still sucks

3. I still pee downwards. The flow is not defying the gravity.

4. Winters still feel cold.

5. Indian football team haven’t breached the 150th mark in FIFA rankings.

6. We are still voting for people who are not able enough to climb stairs, leave alone running this great nation.

The list can go on and every person will have inputs. But as none of this has happened (and being a stern believers of movies); I can conclude nothing’s going to happen.

I am continuing with my plans and I strongly recommend you do it too. Guess Mayans got it all wrong. The date is probably 21.12.2112 instead of 21.12.2012 (the former looks a bit of tricky too; it has to be the one). Clerical error, anyone. So, chances are that you will get 100 years more to do those coveted things which you always wanted. Ask that girl out. Get in touch with your loved ones. Make them feel special. Have kids and see them grow and conquer. Party hard.

And the last wish is asked even from those who deserve capital punishment; we are mere tax-paying humans. Mayans have not given us any signal and I am sure things won’t end this abruptly. They have to give us some sort of hint (one more Kargil, 9/11, 26/11). I believe that won’t happen and we will live happily ever after.

4 Reasons Why You Should Have a Crush in Your School Days

*not this crush, dumbass*I have had kind of a fickle past (childhood to be exact) if I talk about girls in my class. From class 6th to 10th i.e. in 5 years, I had crush on 5 different girls. After one year ended, either the girl’s section changed or I realized that this is not working, so I moved on to another girl (#truestory). Except one of them, I think all of them knew that I had a crush on them. But just because everybody called it crush and not ‘love’, the girls never took it seriously and opted to crush my crush. And I don’t blame them. Instead I am grateful to them. Love in that age, are you kidding me? If that would have been the ishq wala love, I would have screwed my life a decade earlier (#fact). And my “How I Met Your Mother” story would have started with me as a 12 year old (#ridiculous). And I would not have met the amazing girl I am with right now.But say whatever, those crushes are something that I remember more than vaguely from those days of my life. Even in these t…

30 Minutes in Delhi Metro

It was just another Delhi evening while I was commuting in Delhi metro. Travelling in metro has always been boring when I am alone. Worse, I am not addicted to the headphone music listening. So, normally I forget them and then have no choice than to keep going back to my phone to check new FB notifications in every 5 minutes. I was addicted to both- the Facebook and my phone. You might have heard a story where a king’s life was in parrot. My cell phone is my parrot. This evening, luck was far away. I was in Yellow line that goes all the way from Jahangirpuri to Gurgaon. I was going to Chhatarpur and the stations on that route are underground. So, connectivity was at the minimum level. 3G signals, well, obviously were absent. For 30 minutes, doing nothing, standing and shifting balance from one leg to another is a tough job. All you can do is to have a quick nap or look at others. Gen X, grunting and complaining about the Delhi government, Kejriwal and scams. Gen Y, like me, engrosse…
