Have you been to the new fancy malls that have come up all over our nation especially to the ones where escalators work, the reason I say is I went to about 2 or 3 Malls in Punjab, Bhatinda to be precise, none of the escalators were working, maybe to save energy or fuel or whatever escalators use to work 🙂 , you can see I am not an engineer.. So why do these malls spend so much money on having escalators when they have them shut and expect people to climb up the stairs, because have you seen the height of the STEP it is usually higher than normal steps, which means you have to put in more energy to climb them , Personally I feel it is a good idea as we could or I could do with some exercising , lose some of those extra calories which I keep adding on every now and then ..  

Coming back to Escalators I think the Reason why escalators were built was to help shoppers , to make sure they don’t get too tired walking , they have more energy to visit more shops, shoppers don’t have to walk too much.. AM I RIGHT .. there could be other reasons but I am not that intelligent 🙂

If you go to big malls which has a lot of escalators, it is funny if you just stand and watch people get on-down from them, I know I know you all have a lot of other important things to do then spend time watching people do that 🙂 but do sometimes ..

I went to a mall one of the days and found a few funny things taking place, The first thing I noticed was what a silly way the escalators were designed, the whole idea of having escalators is so shoppers don’t have to walk too much or exercise too much .. I hope I can explain it properly, This is how they were I can best explain , you entered the Mall and go up the escalator First floor , then you had to walk all the way to the other side .. to go from first floor to the Second floor.. and so on till Floor 6th..

I found it weird because If I have to go to the sixth floor , I have to do that 5 times .. I mean why can’t they have escalators that go to a floor above, you turn around and there is another set going up.. then when you are coming down you have all the way Down the same way, This will also take care of Human traffic people wont keep on banging into each other trying to reach the other side of the floor to go Up or down..

.. the whole idea of escalators is so people don’t have to walk .. yet they make us walk..

Another thing I noticed was that people sometimes CHOOSE the step they want to get on  “Not this one .. No not this one either “.. the next one looks much nicer .. They choose a stair.. yes THAT ONE.. I  thought I was going to get crushed standing behind this couple , who were doing exactly that. They fell in love with one Step and off they went .. But funnily when they have to get off , they panic again ..

We had a lady in that panic situation who had a nightmare trying to get on to the step, the people with her would get on and she was left behind .. then I think They would come down and again cajole her to get up .. It was funny watching 🙂 Finally she took the escalator, I could see she had GRASPED the sides SO HARD.. that her arm was getting left behind as the escalator was going up.. She would Leave the side and then GRASP it again a bit ahead.. then the problem came to get off.. ooops.. the floor was Eating up the Stairs.. so she was climbing one step up each time..

I know I should not be laughing but secretly I was smiling my head off watching the poor lady .. This actually reminded me of when my parents came over for the First time to UK to visit me, they were going to go on an Escalator for the First time in their life, and what a pallava it was, My Mom was hilarious, especially in london when we had to go underground to catch the tube, My Mom refused at one stage to go down it was to the second level, So it was a No win situation if we had to go up , it was via escalators – of if we had to go down it was again Escalators.. we had to go one way , IT was me who panicked because I did not know how to take her down, she is not light either , he he he he.. but thankfully we managed to travel .. and WE did NOT end up like this .. phewwwwwwwwwwwwww

Right so this was escalator bit , I know nothing funny about it ,Now coming to Shopping.. I had a funny experience when I was going to buy my shoes , Never go for shopping with your partner-gf-wife-mother or even a female friend, I have my reasons oh BOY what a mistakeeeeeeee… They stand there , looking at you.. and make you wear the Shoe and Ask you “TO WALK UP AND DOWN”..

imagesshoes

Now THIS WALK is That walk which is A WALK, that No man will ever walk once he gets out of the shop,  you know the one I mean where we walk bending the toes or the shoe forwards to check if it bends properly, (which man ever walks like that generally, bending there foot).. Then we might be asked to even sit down and Feel the Toe’s inside , Wiggle your Toe.. pinch the top of the shoe to see if there is enough space between the tip and the big toe.. When you do that YOU have this EXCITED look on your face

“Oh yes I can feel the Toe.. ” .. it is right there where it should be , well all normal humans have them

         On your foot  .. Inside your SHOE.

because that’s where THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE…

and then you stand in front of the mirror to check how they look, We always look from the SIDE, Now tell me do you ever see other people in their shoes walking towards you and YOU WATCHING THEIR SHOE FROM THE SIDE.. how do you do that.. you always see the front .. and the sides that you WILL never ever see for as long as you have those shoes .. I mean why Oh why do we do that ..

or are you checking them up because of the pet you have home who has this habit of coming running towards you and they come and hug your leg.. They might see it from the SIDE.. the NEW SHOE..

The same also happens when we buy new trousers .. you wear them and then you try to squat and what not .. I mean how many times have men bought trousers and squatted while wearing them .. FUNNY things we do……..

A Very happy dussehra everyone.  

Have a great day so what are your plans for today.. don’t ask me I am working.

…. Diwali is cominggggggggggggg 🙂

Right from the last almost two weeks I have been trying to keep it hidden, But today is the day when I can Finally say I GOT IT.. as of 1st april I shall be transferred over to a department which I have been longing to do for the last 4 years (will start work on 16th april over there).

As with the line of work I can’t disclose what it is , I am sure many of you would have already guessed it.

Due to the some of the problems I had two years ago ( The time when I should have actually got this) , I ended up messing up everything thanks to the person who put me into that SHITE at that time.  Life is funny but I do think that if one pursues what one wants with all heart and hard work  you can achieve what you want, Even if  other people (especially the ones who say they care for you and love you) do their best to ruin it for you. 

But anyway Thanks to THE ONE, for putting me through this, hope you realise one day what you have done, I also wish and pray that God DOESNOT give you the opportunity to Repent it too.

Hard work always pays , maybe late but it does pay, No matter how much, people do their best to make your life miserable and leave you standing alone knowing pretty well that they have let you down or MAYBE doing it deliberately at that precise moment was their sole Motive … BUT that has gone , Bad times have gone waving way to good times fingers crossed..

So Let me take this opportunity today to thank god almighty, Family and Friends who stood by me when the times were not good, to all the beautiful – lovely people who visit this blog. Making me smile all the time

A special Thank you to the one who listened to my Rants, Enquiring about me when I did not even know them properly , telling me all will be fine, You know Who you are. (let me be Sarcastic here , even though you don’t come to my blog often or comment in spite of me harassing you he he he he 🙂  )

Put it this way ladies and gentleman that all those whom I keep saying come to uk,  Let me say this to you that if you land near where I live, I might just be standing at the door of the plane to receive you If  I am working that day 🙂

I need all your best wishes and prayers please, So do send them my way, I need them all.

and shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh  Keep it hush… 🙂

Yes I am very much happy with all that i have achieved or where I am at this juncture of my life, god has been very kind to me so far and I hope and pray he keeps his eyes on me as long as I live.

5. Role model in your life? 

I dont beleive in role models , as if we dig deep we can find enough wrong in all of them, So  I have always tried to live as my father taught me , Do what your heart says, listen to all, dont hurt anyone knowingly, jsut be a good human being and treat everyone as you would want to be treated.

6. Have you got the habit of cursing often?!

I beleive that God is there but he has given the power to  make our own destiny by working hard,  not hurting others , I know everyone says that what has to happen will happen but we can change all that if we are true to ourself and are a good human being. For god helps those who help themselves.

9. Any regrets in life?

If you had asked me this question a couple of years back, I would have said yes but over time I have learned a lot maybe become maturer, so Now I dont regret anything after all, all the good times and the bad times have made me what I am now. So thanks to all those who have shown me good times and A BIG THANKS to those who have brought bad times in my life, because OF them I know what good times are ..

10. A sweet memory which you talk about often?

I talk a lot about my friends and I remember one incident when I was alone surrounded by people ready to bash me up and Babbar my friend came and stood there by my side, without me calling him. It takes guts to stand by your friends right or wrong and I can never forget it. To me it is a sweet memory as that’s what we knew when we were growing up, standing for each other. Punjab was a bad place in those days.


11. Do you think you are a good son, daughter, brother, sister, spouse, parent? Mark yourself, if you can!

No I am not, I have a lot to do , to be a good son, there are a few things that I need to do.

This year has come with a Date the will never ever happen again for a 1000 (thousand) years .. I surly will not be alive to see it … The 11th Day of the 11 Month and 11th year of the 2000 …  and Yes its my birthday Today …   I was born on this day early morning in a small village in Punjab , which had just about 8-9 houses at that time ..  My Nana ji use to live in a big village but the land he had was about  5-6 miles away, So he had packed up everything and made a house in the middle of the fields and soon others followed who had their lands nearby..

I am told as was the tradition during those days, My mother came to her parents house when she was nearing the due time .. It was a bright day the day I was born.  A telegram was rushed to Chandigarh where my Dad was living .. my Dada ji was the first one to come over to see me, he did not know I was born , He was busy with some Punjab elections he just coincidentally was visiting.

So on this fateful day ME was born 🙂  A lot is going on in the media about how special this day is , how the sun and scorpion etc etc are in perfect shape so lets hope tonight I win the Friday european lottery .. please everyone pray for that for me .. and I hope the wish does come true … ahmmm and ooops someone remind me to go put the lottery tomorrow tooo.. wont win if I don’t put it 🙂

I know we have not met with each other all those people who come and visit this blog , But please take a minute out…

Those who don’t drink have a some coke-shoke – paani-waani .. and those who drink have a peg-sheg . daroo-sharoo …

Cheers everyone .. .. Thank you all who are wishing me , wished me and those who forgot my birthday in spite of me mentioning everywhere making a big issue of it at all the places 😦 .. not happy now .

Disclaimer :- A NONSENSE POST — Lots of thoughts going through my mind .. Weird ones ..

Over the years and time I have experienced and Heard this Line Everything in Life comes with a lot of luggage.. you say something to someone when you are emotional.. it takes a whole new meaning ..  a lot of external situations come into the whole scenario .. I have experienced that ..

What is love.. Why does love come with all the its and buts … If two people love each other than what is a whole load of plethora that comes in between..

We are taught a lot of stuff as we grow up , one of them is that we will meet someone , a lovely person and that we will have our very own happy ending ..  Each story we read or we are told tells us , implores us to wait for that special one , for that One person that will come into your life and somehow transform it into a New something …

Tell us to Wait for that unexpected declaration of love , No one tells us though how long we got to wait 🙂 .  and  in all this we sometimes lose the plot, in all this commotion , teachings, stories, experiences and focusing over the plot we still end up meeting the wrong person 🙂

We read the wrong signs ..

We lose our way and sometimes the will to think too .. to think logically and sanely, to use the messages .. To use the experiences .. to learn a lesson from the experiences.

We are unable to tell from the ones who want us and the others who don’t and WORSE  from the ones who are only there to use us, Like we do with a Mango.. you suck it dry and then throw it in the bin or worst still in a garbage heap lying in the corner of a road. .. USE YOU oh yes they do with such precise calculated moves..

We are Unable to tell from The ones who will be there for a while , be a leech and when there wishes are over they part ways.

From the ones who will stay from the ones who will leave ..

Then I hear people say MOVE ON.. I mean what is Moving on ..  Maybe Picking up pieces and Starting all over again , freeing ourself for something better in future .  Maybe the happy ending of this manipulated-dirty-Cheap-calculating relation is the MOVING ON.. Or

Maybe The Happy ending is the Happy Knowing that through all the broken hearts,  through all those misread signs .. through all that feeling of being used up.. through all that crap  ..

Through all that time spent with someone Disloyal.. with someone who is a CHEAT .. someone who was False .. someone who was with the black heart .. someone who was just a user .. someone who just wanted the money .. someone who just wanted the SEX .. now not with you but with someone else …. Maybe thats Moving on..  

Maybe in all this Time we never gave up hope  and maybe we will find that one person … or WILL WE…
