It’s like a dream come true!

An experience worth sharing. Though it would fail the purpose of being anonymous but this is something that I would definitely want my readers to know. We should keep making efforts to keep our lives interesting. The post was written on Friday, 23rd Nov early hours.

I always found the job of a Radio Jockey pretty exciting. I wished to be one considering my love to be in conversation always. New people new experiences and all you need to do is – Talk!

I remember going for a walk-in audition in 2005 for Radio Mirchi. I wasn’t too impressive, but my friend who accompanied me did try to boost my morale. “You at least were better than me”, just like Farhan and Raju encouraged each other in 3-idiots. My second stint with being an RJ was lil dramatic. A friend of mine found an apple for his eyes on Orkut. Some girl he had added and was chatting with. He wanted to be the first one to wish her on her birthday and there was no contact number. She teased him by saying, “let’s see if you are smart enough to find this yourself”. The only clue was her online Orkut boyfriend. Luckily he had made his number public. Bad for him though, poor guy didn’t know what was coming up. I played a Radio Jockey, telling him that he was the lucky one whose number was selected. He was made to believe that he just got an opportunity to send across a message to anyone in India. As expected, he shared the number of that girl with a birthday message and a song dedication too. Wishes were delivered well in time; it was just the delivery boy which changed. I hoped that my friend was considerate enough to play the dedicated song at the background while they were talking. They talked through the night, God know about what! While the online boyfriend must have cursed me, the friend of mine must have showered a lot of blessings. He sure did.

A few years back, I heard Anil Srivatsa on a new radio station for the first time. He hosted a show – Between The Sheets, he still does; not on a station anymore but at radiowalla.in. While every girl complemented him for his voice, I found his wit more appealing. The guy possesses this natural ability to leave you without words, sometimes in embarrassment. While you would love the smile he leaves on your face, at the same time you would not want him to stop talking to you. Unfortunately, the guy is taken already. And is very much a one woman man, but as every man does; even he won’t mind getting dirty on air with you. Married men, unfortunately; are out of my ‘desired-list’ of men. I have been a regular caller on his show since those radio station days. A friend told me about radiowalla.in and I was listening to him after ages today.

As the name suggests, Between The Sheets is aimed at sharing your feelings on different topics related to relationships and sex. We as a society are still opening up towards the discussion about Sex. Hence, being a talk show we can make use of it as much as we can. It provides a platform to share opinions, seek advices and learn about the opposite sex to make your relationship better.

I was tuned in today and was disappointed to see that Mr. Host was struggling with a specific caller who was calling in again and again. This girl was not ready to be audible was continuously whispering. It was irritating for the listeners. Being one of the irritated lot, I decided to be the next caller giving Anil a break from that Whispering Aunty. I intended the show to proceed with the discussions, like all other listeners. Unlike earlier times, my call was connected in one go. I could feel a sense of relaxation in the voice at the other end after realizing that it’s an actual caller. Like all other times, I preferred to be anonymous. But it’s easy to relate to a name so we (me and Anil) finalized on one name – Tina. It’s always fun to be on-air. While I shared my views on today’s topic – what is the most fascinating thing about sex and what puts you off; I was asked to co-host the show. I managed to hide my scream when I accepted the offer. “Memorable experiences are not planned”, proved again. With a lil apprehension and tension of “How am I sounding? I hope I am not sounding like a fool” to “Should I talk now or wait for him to start?” to “Whom should I message to listen to me right now?”…and the list was endless, I somehow managed to steal some moments. So, you know all that was going at the back of my mind while I struggled to share the on-air space with Anil. Of course I could not match his charisma. Nevertheless, knowing that there were quite a lot of people who wished to be me at that very moment was exhilarating.

I co-hosted Between The Sheets as Tina for over 45minutes today!!! 3 AM it is and I am still sleepless, one can understand my excitement today. I wanted to capture the feeling by documenting it before I go to sleep. I prayed for the show to not get over ever, but it had too.

Just another day ends, registering itself in the memory lane. It has been a Happy Thanksgiving for me indeed! 🙂

Smile…Your Everlasting Smile !!!

 

A Smile is a pleasant arc that usually forms itself on differently shaped faces after a delightful event. It is said to be a curve which sets everything straight. It’s also very famous to mislead people by smiling, making them think about things you are upto 😉 . We often like to see faces with such a view. A smile is a communicable ‘disease’ which cures most of the others. One automatically tends to smile after seeing a smiling face. In fact, I bet that even reading the word SMILE can make you smile. You don’t believe me??? Check those lips…I’m sure the corners are pointing upwards as you have been reading about Smile for quite a few seconds now 🙂

Smile is a cheapest way to increase your face value…why to go for face lifting and all then?? 😛 When you smile, you bless your body…a happy body responds to the energy in this world in very positive way. Hence, absorbing the positive elements quickly. One should try to spend atleast 5 minutes a day with oneself and just smile, even if it’s a forced one at the beginning after a while you won’t have to make efforts.

When you are happy you take better decisions. Better decisions result in better life. There is no specific rule to feel happy, different things work for different people. But one thing is for sure, you first have to take the decision of being happy in all the situations. When there is willingness, you would automatically find out ways to smile and eventually feel better in any situation. For the first few times you might have to instruct your mind to divert itself from thinking about a particular unpleasant situation…do it!!! Please make this a habit that it’s not just for a click, you should often be seen saying “Cheese” 😀 Attach a smile with any of the activity that you often do in a day. May be while thinking or cooking or may be while washing dishes …..this would just spice it up a lil bit and the same activity would have a different meaning. When you are happy…happy thoughts strike you, happy memories come back to multiply the smile. Listen to happy songs, read happy stuff…reading the word SMILE again n again would solve the purpose too (remember the above exercise??). 😛

Smile….not ‘cos its free of cost, but ‘cos its the second best thing you can do with your lips and you sure wanna make full use of it right???? 😉

Ohkay…so this is what I got in mail today morning from WordPress and I must say that this is quite impressing…I liked it !! 🙂

Change…

I forced a much pending change to influence my life to a bit… last week I got an internet connection at home. Though getting it started was such a pain in the neck, I am enjoying every moment of it now. When it comes to technology, I am such a back bencher that those who know even the T of Technology would laugh at me. A lot to learn it seems and I am looking forward to new thing.

I am even more excited with the fact that I can connect to all those blogs I was regular with at one point of time…including my own.

What Do You Prefer…Being Fake or Being Original???

 So here is a lil conversation between 2 people. 3 characters involved in total. X, Y and Z. Z has a special appearance for one dialogue, just like SRK’s in Om Shanti Om (he had a role to say one word ‘dialogue’…”bhaago”…remember???)

Some background for you…Y and Z are best of friends. Y accepted X’s friend request on Facebook by mistake and since then X has been commenting and expressing his views on Y’s wall and status very regularly. Now by ‘very’ in mean VERY

Y recently changed her profile pic, which was appreciated and ‘liked’ by most of the population.

But X posted on her Wall saying….

X: Photo change karo ………. :-O

To which Y replied…

Y: KYUN?

After that there was no reply from X….for xyz reasons…

Z visited Y’s Wall and saw the post. Z wondered what’s wrong with X…he is asking Y to change such an awesome pic (a pic which was clicked by Z and everyone loved that new pic)

Z: Kyu Bhai kya problem hai photo me??

X: Specs wali achhi hai…intelligent lagti hai…

Z: unki har pic achhi hai…. And intelligent ‘lagney’ ki kya zaroorat ho jab intelligent ho….right??

X: I know that…..but lagni bhi to chahiye……….

Z: thts not something intelligent people are worried about…

“Dikhave pen a jao, apni akal lagao”  😛

Y: LOL!!!

X: 🙂

After this something went on in X’s mind and he decided to send a msg to Z….with the subject line “Don’t you think it’s time?” …below are the conversations through msgs…

X: Show off is the need of time….

Z was puzzled at this guy. He once was at ‘sending-friend’s-request spree to everyone in her circle of friends. And every one ignored for a simple reason of not knowing him. Poor Y who accepted it cos there were few common friends.

Z: no…ABSOLUTELY NO !!!! I hate to be fake ….and I HATE fake people… I respect originality….”

X: Don’t be fake….show off originally….

Z: well Mr. X….pls continue showing off your originality in showing off, the way you do…and pls stop giving me advices on something that I don’t believe in…. I wont understand what you are saying cos I don’t want to and you wont understand what I am saying cos you cant…

Peace!!!

X: I am not giving any advice to you Ms. Z and m not at all trying to convince anybody…m living the way I live… moreover I was in conversation with Y and it was you who started in between… I don’t care wat you believe in…

Z: …..read your msgs again and you wud realize wat it was if not n advice…thr wsnt any need of ths communicatn anyway. And if u dint care thn u shudnt hv initiated ths… rahi baat beech me padne ki… Y is my best frnd and I do hv the right to tk a stand fr her…thr wsnt anything wrong in wat I asked, cos u probably r d only one asking her to chnge that pic…or rather ordering the same…

And btw…has anyone evr gvn u a feedbk abt your display pic??? Time to change tht too….something wch wud probably mk u luk a lil intelligent…!!!

 _________________________________________________

He dint msg since thn…

Now this makes me think why people believe in ‘showing off’??

PS. I HATE such people…..

Enjoyment

 

This is one of my favorite pictures I came across some forwarded mail about half a decade back. I don’t even recall what it was all about, but I remember admiring this one for a long time. Admire as in…I literally stared at my computers screen with a grin on my face 😀

Isn’t it simply adorable..??

I had a print out of this pic on my workstation when one of my Manager said, ”Arrey…tumne apni pic laga rakhi hai??”. He tried to pull my leg…of course!!!

And I replied, “I wont mind being a baby elephant if I look this cute!!!!”

I lost this pic after some time and wondered if ever I would get it back…but few days back another forwarded mail brought this back to me. …. And with this A Big Grin on my face too 😀 😀

Happy Encounters

Yesterday was nice…. I mean naaiiiiiiice!!!

Apart from getting few compliments, I had papdi chaat…yeah I cheated on my diet plan…got mehndi done on my hand, missed someone whom I wanted to see, talked to someone I wanted to talk and most importantly… something happened after which I was grinning though out. I was so happy to have come across my School Teacher who used to teach me till 1996. And I was even more happy to know that she still remembered me 😀 . I was so so soooooo happy…!! We talked for about half an hour about how am I doing…where I am working…about my brother too. We talked about my classmates, we remembered old days and discussed people from school. It felt so nice so see her grinning every time I would ask her, “do you remember xyz?”. It was clearly visible how happy she was when I updated her about fellow classmates…she sure was feeling proud of everyone.

Since yesterday, I am recalling these moments again and again to feel good about life and all….
