Scrubs & the House M.D.

I was coming back from Delhi, 2 guys around 45 were discussing about disease outbreaks, they were from public health and safety department. Out of curiosity I asked few questions which Google would have answered, but then come on we are still humans and nit from planet Wall-e.

Me : "bhaisaab ye virus kya hota hai... Mai confused hu.. Ye bacteria me aatma hoti hai k nahi..."

Doctor - " yaar ye bacteria me aatma to mere maze lene k liye bol rahe ho tum... Yakeen hai... But the virus is something which is dead when out of system, waiting for somebody jis se wo attach ho and ander jaate he active... Poora satyanash..simple me samjha raha hu. "

Me : " per ye samajh me nahi aaya... "

Doctor : " yaar... Kejrival ka naam suna hai?"

Whole train bursts into laughter.

Doctor : "to matlab aaisi cheezo me aatma nahi hoti... Ye to jaha marzi chipak jaate hai and system kharab he karte hai"


नही रह सकता तेरे बिना, तुझे ये आज कहदूं तो शायद सच लगेगा,
कुछ नही हू तेरे बिना, तुझे ये आज कहदूं तो सच लगेगा,
ऐतबार ना था तुझे, शायद प्यार भी ना था तुझे,
अगर कह दे तू आज के हाँ था, तो शायद मुझे ये सच लगेगा,

बीत गये कई बरस, बरसी पे आज भी आसू आते है,
देख के दो धड़कते दिल, वो पल याद आते है,
वो पल मै फिर जी नही सकता, जीना चाहता तू मगर, तेरे सिवा कोई ना अच्छा लगेगा,
आज तुझे ये कह दूं, तो शायद तुझे सच लगेगा,

हाथ पकड़ के चलना तेरा, मेरा प्यार था,
तेरी ज़िद को हंस के टालना मेरा प्यार था,
हाथ छुड़ा के तू गयी जाने कहा,
वो हाथ आज भी मुट्ठी है,
कसक आज भी उतनी है,
तू रोज़ याद आती है,
ये तुझ से आज कह दूं तो शायद तुझे सच लगेगा.

भीड़ मे गुम हो तुम हो,
चमक मे कही खो गयी हो तुम,
दिल से बॅस ये कह दो के खुश हो तुम,
जो तुम खुश हो तो मैं खुश हूँ, आज मैं कह दूं तो शायद तुम्हे सच लगेगा...

I was working as a CS at Aditya Birla. The office was till 7 pm, but do work pressure we 4-5 people stayed late. To boost productivity I started music on my phone, it was Avicii on the floor that night. Usually lala companies don't have the 'do what you want, until m getting what I want' openness. Boss came in don't know from where...

Wadia Mam (surprised) : "Who is playing that???? whats goin on."

Me (standing up slowly inside the cubicle and pointing towards my colleague, she was sitting on the table in cross leg aka 'aalti palti') : "She did mam... she did..."

Komal (Surprised) : "whatt... grow up n take responsibilities."

Me (nodding in no) : "ok... you are now my responsibility."

Komal : "mam...its his phone."

Me : "in my defense... she asked me to play Saadi k Fall Sa..."

Mam : "My team... passing the blames like they always do...dont panic... its ok baba... but if you could play The Beatles till am here... I dont get this dhim chick dhim chik..."


Guerilla Advising

Me - "yaar mera goriila glass toot gaya... Phone sirf 1-2 feet se gira hoga at max.... What is this yaar."

Hiten - "bhai... Dekh... Gorilla Gorilla me farq hota hai... Tera wala sophisticated gorilla hoga.. Habshi nahi... Pressure jhel nahi paya. Theek hai na bhai."

Narrow Roads

I posted a pic on Instagram, which was in my understanding a beautiful pic, which was secular and something which can be said as a symbol of peace. The pic above; the beautiful book with golden design is The Holy Kuran. The thing kept above it is a Buddhist Singing Bowl, which monks use while they pray and it makes beautiful resonating sound, which give peace and push into the spiritual world.

As soon as I posted the pic, a friend messaged me, she was deeply offended, like I have done something terribly wrong, a blasphemy for which I deserve death and nothing else... Hey I make cartoons at times, but my name is not Charlie. I was bit shocked, as in spite being non religious I don't disrespect the book even when am not clicking, and sitting alone with it.

"how dare you! And why?" said she,"reasons are purely aesthetics based" i had to reply, "since the design color in book and the engraving on the bowl matched... Nothing else mam.", I was abused with very foul language, for which I guess if there are gods they will send thunderbolts to the speaker. Its been an year or so, we haven't talked since thine. I think am blocked by her, however I didn't try to ask sorry or mend the things. However, I was wondering what the reason could be.

A friend of mine, who share the same faith as her; while a discussion was narrated the incident by me. "You were at fault." he said, "how" was the obvious reply by me.

"See" and he chose his words very carefully... coz there is another country India has problem with, but that would be another controversial thing if he would have used that, so he used China; he said, "if flags of India and China were to be put together at the border, Chinese flag up and Indian flag down, how would you think India will react?"

Now I was shocked with his reply, as the whole premise of this all would be superiority or inferiority complex. The problem was that the Buddhist bowl was above the Book, and it depicted the victory of kafirs over the holy book, which was unacceptable. (He is a very understanding nice guy, he didn't say that much, but that was an after thought.)

This led me to musing about all permutation combination I can think of with different scenarios. We all know what happened with bowl over the book.

1. Book over the bowl -

She : “How dare you Shishir???“

Me : "it looked great that way"


He : "see" "the reason is that this depicts that this monk sect is the base of the religion, which is very offensive to us."

Me : "what the.... "

2. Book between 2 bowls -

She : “How dare you Shishir???“

Me : "it looked great that way"


He : "See" "actually this depicts that the monk sect has crushed us in between, and we are bound by them, cant move... This is really offensive."

Me : "shit...."

3. Bowl between 2 books -

She : “How dare you Shishir???“

Me : "it looked great that way"


He : "see" "actually, it depicts that the bowl which represents the monk sect is guarded by our religion... They are no watchman... This is offensive to them."

Me : "dude... I didn't saw it coming..."

4. Book and Bowl separate -

Why??? Why this separation, no I 
would have not clicked that at all, why put so thought process and think what is above and what is below.... I could have done the opposite if it looked good, the book was bigger and hence the bowl looked above it... I sometimes read Quran, no where will you find words that can dehydrate your brain. What make us so intolerant? Currently that book is on my table along with Gita, Bible, Ramayan, poems of Faiz Ahmed Faiz, Teachings of Buddha and few dictionaries... I like the books equally, and I respect those books equally, they all give me knowledge, those who don't would be disposed immediately.

Lets be more open minded, more tolerant, should think more positively. Why search reason for being offended, when you can utilize that for reasons to smile, btw you don't need any... Just smile. 

Its My Life

This is what that is going on my life, my happy/ sad memories... At times Its what my mind muses and purges out as poetry when its not thinking anything what it is forced to think!!!
