Straight Angle™: April 2006
Monday, April 24, 2006
It's been two years now that I started this blog- Well, I dont want to repeat the story that I did for last year.
Suffice to say that, I dont love my blog as I did an year before. May be I am getting used to its presence- may be an overwhleming presence- may even be a mask of sorts. I am trying hard to justify- to carry on with certain habits, certain likes and dislikes. Within the last year and now, this blog had been closed once, abandoned once and even kicked out of the URL thrice. But time and again, my yearning for putting down something had made me come back to the thing that I cherished a lot.
I am clueless whether I still have that in me to write anything that would stimulate me. I am searching for other avenues of stimulation. Hopefully will find them- don't know if they ever will stand up to this blog's effect. I am in such a state of flux- hopefully things will settle down- afterall, what is left in Men but hope, dream and future?

Saturday morning around 9:30 AM, was as usual browsing through channels, when I stumbled upon the AajTak news item. With my excellent hindi reading speed, all I could make out was "Pramod mahajan ki goli maari", that too after that was shown repeatedly for three times.
Couldn't follow much of the other news information that kept running beneath- switched immediately to NDTV. Waited patiently for sometime before all that they said made some sense. For example, let us hear(read) a typical converstaion that went on:
News reader(I forgot her name)- let us name her N and the reporter- Shai Venkatraman. Let she be S.
N: Senior BJP leader and BJP General Secretary Mr. Pramod Mahajan was shot at by his own brother Praveen Venkatesh Mahajan at his home today morning. Let us go to Shai for further information. Shai, tell us about the incident and what is happening at the hospital.
S:blah..blah..blah..(essentially what N had already told)
N: Thanks Shai for the update(where is that??). Also tell us the responsibilities that Mr. Mahajan held in BJP.
S: Yeah...Mr.Mahajan is one of the predominant..errr....Prominent leaders of BJP. He is one of the second generation..errr...younger generation leaders...responsible for the image in several states....errr....image of BJP in several states..he had been in various important responsibilites....errr...right now, his health is the only important concern.
N: Thanks for the information Shai.
Now, please for heavens sake- don't let people who know just to speak and not what they are speaking to handle such issues. Mahajan responsible for the image of party??- what is that?? like Chief Image Officer or something??
Dont you know that he is one of the General Secretaries of the party? Dont you know that he was responsible for the poll related activities in the current elections?? Dont you know that he was the Union minister for Information Technology in the previous NDA government?
Cant you collect your facts before coming to present them, rather than saying stupid things in TV? A piece of suggestion to the News Reader too- Dont assume that your reporter knows everything just because you know them or you want to know them!!
NDTV- Please get your facts first- then you can try to get them right!
On a completely different tangent, got to watch this:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=szUydW7tjKc (This is for Indian chaps..as usual for whom Google Video doesn't work)
Was satisfied watching something worthwhile after a long time. Very much pleased and felt good for a piece of music!

Hard clay after harvest, the just harvested smell of sugarcane, the petrichor, the chillness of the well, the hot floor of the Shiva temple in the evenings, the cool breeze through Pavizhamalli at nights, the taste of home food, the trains and train journeys, the name boards the cross the sight..
Blog, blogs, reading, writing, singing, listening, Google..
Waiting, thinking, sighing..
Words, gestures, faces, tones, intentions, intonations, pauses and speeches..
Keep remembering....to forget!
