Smoky Dreams

A smoker is as smoker does (Run Fellows Run 😉 ..if you are not in a
boozy mood then I suggest you back off from reading this)…

A conversation b/w two people…

psycho: Good morning, isn’t it a great day outside?
me: yeh…may be
psycho: may be?
me: I mean.., I don’t like mornings much…
psycho: hmm..very your story?
me: usual, got hooked the very first time…been trying to quit from then on..
psycho: typical…let me how long have you been a smoker?
me: I think … around for 2 and half years now..
psycho: and an average of how many per day..?
me: 10..though I don’t keep a count you see..but I think you can make
it a pack per day..
psycho: hmmm..A typical smoker averages around whatever
the effect is, make it 5 years..
me: so..what do you think?
psycho: well, you say you did try quitting?
me: Many times..probably, I can say every other day..But you see whenever
I try, I get too confused, unable to think straight..always end up with nicotine..
I feel I have a purpose as long I keep smoking..
psycho: Ah..The purpose of oneself in life..well, I completely understand
what exactly you are going through..while you smoke, it soothes your agitated
mind and then you have clarity in your thoughts which gives you a direction..
The thing is…there are other ways to reach that state..and there is no need to
connect your smoking with your purpose in life..
me: well, I am not sure how else it could be done..
psycho: hmmm, would you mind if I ask you what’s your purpose..?
me: well, you see..its pretty serious..if I smoke then I can focus on quitting it..
I have a purpose and that is to quit..but as soon as I quit..I am totally clueless ..
psycho:’s why you have quit many times…
me: exactly..
psycho: so..what exactly you wanted to meet me for?
me: not sure..heard that you help people quit smoking and you are an accomplished
quitter yourself..
psycho: know what…you are generally not sure about anything, thats your
problem..what a waste if you ask me…
me: yeh well..are sure about it..? because I am not :wink:……Can I have one?..and
I take a cigarrate out

psycho: Definitely…lit one for me too..
me: but I thought you quit!!!
psycho: Yes…well, you see…the beauty of quitting is…now that I have
quit….I can have one..
me: Yes..yes..and I lit one for him..but you have quit..
psycho: absolutely…
and we shut up for a while as we loose ourselves in the smoke…

psycho: you know what, smoking is like being in love…
me: you mean…it starts with pleasure and ends up in pain…
psycho: Not if you want it to..but that again is an affair..I am talking about love…
and he looks at me as if I am the freshest idiot in the world..
me: well, how do I know…I never had an affair and had never been
in love either..
psycho: Love…you see..usually it starts with attraction..except
for the ones where they say “love at first sight”…Smoking is similar..
you see people around you smoking…trendy, fashionable and you try
to imitate..this is love starting with attraction..
me: And you believe there is something called “love at first sight”..
psycho: well, mine want to know..let me tell you…..and he takes
one long shot..sits back and I have a perfect pre – flashback scene

It was 5:30 in the morning and I was on my bike and heading to the
railway station..I was going to Mysore for the weekend..I went to the
station, parked my bike and paid the parking lot guy, 2 days worth parking
money..I was counting the change and as I kept my wallet in my pocket
and looked up..I saw her..the sky was still dark and she was coming out under
the street light, carrying her luggage…The yellowish-orange light glowing on
her face..She kept her luggage down..holding the band in her mouth, she
shook her head and both her hands were crawling up her hair..I had lived an
entire lifetime by this time…she turned around and our eyes saw each other..
both the pairs saw through..there was no shyness, no questions, but a clear
recognition..a recognition of a search getting completed..She took the band
out of her mouth and made a bun of her hair..all the while our eyes never looked
askance..The sun was now born from the womb in the East..I heard the birds
humming, flying over to the distant fields..The sound of train that I had abandoned
led to the beginning of a whole new world…The day was April 28 1999 and it is
still going on..that day…dies with me..
me: you are saying..I mean I never wanted to smoke because I saw others
doing it..It was on my hostel terrace..we were talking crap as usual for a long
time and a friend pulls out a pack and looks at us..Till that time I had never
thought about smoking…I took one, cut a bit and lit it..It came naturally…Usually
people need to be taught..I took a long shot and before I could exhale, I knew
I had found…
psycho: Couldn’t you wait till I had finished…huh..yes, you are right..
but irrespective of the way the love starts..what really is important is
the way it flourishes…But considering how deeply you are interested in
love..let me not go into details..may be some other time..
me: I am glad…but the way I see are not actually asking me to
psycho: well, I have quit
me: I mean to quit in the real sense…
psycho: I thought you would have got that by this time..When people say
quit smoking..kick the butt..I think they are simply chasing the wrong
dream…once a smoker..always a smoker..but when I say quit..I mean quit
the habit..make peace with it..Instead of a pack..reduce it to one per
day…then probably, once in a while to once in a year..But make sure
you give the relationship due respect..else it will come haunting you
10 times manifold..

It was around 2 AM..I turned around and picked a kingweiser(a king and a case you thought i misspelled kingfisher 😉 )..I had
couple of turns with the bud, went out of my room, to the terrace..I was
not sure whether it was a dream or I dozed of boozing..the breeze from
the lake (yes there is lake 100ft from where I stay)geared by the
surrounding trees, knocked me out..The sight of the lake reflecting the
street lights was turning out really mysterious by the time I had half
emptied the bud..I had a sudden urge to write something, I picked a pen
and a book..The bud was burning my insides while the wind got wilder…I
came inside my room..took one big shot of sutta, closed my eyes, smoked
in for a long time…nicotine went all the way down..I started writing
the above..and for a while I quit smoking forever…

55 ficiton

“Unknowing, almost everyone
was looking at thermy hungrily…
thermy was innocent but can do
nothing to save itself..while
butchy did not foresee the aftermath…
he pulled the sword-like knife,
pierced thermy without remorse…
several things happened
his hand was stuck..
some screamed, shocked…
few knew and grinned…
some yelled; happy birthday to you…”

thermy was a thermoplastic box with cream
on top and it was butchy`s birthday..

55 fiction is a small dose of fiction written in
less than or equal to 55 words.Suspense is the main
element here which is usually revealed in the last statement..

Will it be Obama?

Just like most people, I have been following the run up
for US presidential elections for quite sometime now..
An year and a half ago, it was mostly certain who would
be the nominees for democratic and republican parties…
one, an apparently-who-had-gone-through-a-lot woman,
considered as being a ruthless executive when it came to
getting things done..Another a septuagenarian with a lot
of “experience talk” on his agenda which was going nowhere
when it came to an endless and misguided war, a broken economy
and much talked about universal health care policy……….

After 8 years of Fudge politics (Harry Potter fans would
know what Fudge did to cloud the return of Lord Voldemort..
oops You-know-who:-), while parallelly barking up the wrong
trees) which had made America look fickle and dumb on the
world map but also had triggered other countries to start
hating them more than ever…lest we forget America`s nosy
business on the world affairs…All because of one President…
The situation was ominous for the Republicans and ripe for
the Democrats and the Democrats knew it..It was going to
be a lot more easier for them to topple Republicans..But were
the Americans ready and satisfied or were they looking for
something more and something honest to connect to their
problems and issues…You bet they were…
As a fellow American and a senator, Barrack Obama was
not the only one to see this kernel over the superficial but
probably among one of the first few…..and one who had the
courage, moral obligation to show this to the world without
humiliation…As they say, the first step to progress is the
understanding and the acceptance of the problem..
He trod the path where nobody stepped before but would have
seized the first opportunity to take the benefits of such an
endeavour..He spoke the words which everybody felt but never
could put it into an expression…
“Together” he said and inspired an entire generation of Young
US netizens to come out and vote for the first time..
With the words like “CHANGE” and “YES WE CAN”, he crusaded his
way towards the nomination while letting the people know, if one
has got enough courage and practical ingenious ideas to prove
oneself, he/she does not need to play petty politics on insignificant
or rather irrelevant backgrounds of opponents..
There is nothing to say more…a lot has been written already by
many around the world..
But one thing for sure, whether Obama makes it or not, he has
already brought one hell of a change to the world politics and
hope on the lives of many people…
The link below is his nomination acceptance address at Denver last week..

Its quite long (about 45 mins) but definitely worth a watch..

p.s:- Obama chose an experienced Biden as his running mate
while Mccain chose Ms.Palin(with just 2 years of executive
experience)…thats something interesting to watch out for
as Obama sticks to his theory that you don`t have to be a
Washington veteren to take up the responsibility and Mccain
keeps poking him for his lack of experience…

True Love

A Chinese guy had hidden the ring in a cake while
proposing his girlfriend for marraige..looks like
the girl unaware of the hidden romantic nature,
swallowed the cake with the ring..hmmm..I guess she
just added one more dimension to Chinese`s ever expanding
authority on everything-that-breathes-has-to-be-eaten…
To make matters worse,she then fainted and had to be
rushed to the hospital…The lover boy Chen,being a
policeman should have thought of this possibility when
he thought of his hiding plan..I guess we really need
people like him over here considering how efficient
the Indian(especially the UP) police is…Anyway, the
doctors were able to extract the ring from her..Maan…
I hope the diamond miners in South Africa are reading
this…their jobs are next on the outsourcing queue….
the climax is anti-climax as the girl has agreed to
marry Chen…Somebody rightly said everything is fair
in love and war..I wish their marriage will be rock stable.

We have a NASA(L) problem over here…

It looks like the only toilet in international space
station has broken down and the three guys all from
NASA(Need Anti Shit Assitance) are in deep trouble..
to make things worse ,the toilet is Russian made…
Now could this be the new cold war,where in the
Russians are determined to attack the brilliants of
US by weakening their lesser brainy parts,whoever
devised this should be given be given the Nobel peace
award for ensuring no mass scale destruction..Actually
the news article quotes “toilet is acting up”,basically
it is not acting down and somebody (Richard Branson of
virgin atlantic..i guess)who was planning to launch a
special space tourism must be having a new headache now…
Meanwhile, NASA isn’t taking any chances…It rushed on
to get a special pump on board shuttle Discovery to fix
the balky toilet at the International Space Station, as
the launch countdown got under way(A thrilling polt for
the next bond movie )…but looks like they dont have enough
space in Discovery to accomodate for this unexpected
climax,so they decided to pull out a spare part for the
space station’s oxygen generator and a microbe-killing
device for use in the European space lab….obviously spare
parts for oxygen generators are of less priority than the
pumps to pull things down..Also it really takes a call
from deep inside at the most unusual times, to stop killing
microbes….In any case for the folks up there in times
of emergencies like this, it would be better to fix baby
napkins up their a**es…
