I dint sleep d whole nite yesterday after watchin Federer lose the way he did 2 a 19 year old bloke still wearin three-fourths.I dont take away anythin from Nadal for his sterling display.It was brilliance n arrogance goin hand in hand.These 2 things form a dangerous combo.It cud take u 2 dizzying heights or cud throw u into unfathomable depths.

Brush aside all these things.Lemme tell u somethin 'bout my name(my INITIAL in particular).My name is T.ASHWIN SUNDAR.I dint mention the initial on purpose in my profile,but I'll dwell on it today.Boy i never thought i wud b writin 'bout this.It was somethin which my friends happened 2 stumble after rifling thru my certificates without my knowledge(bad guys).They had a gr8 time once they found wat the initial stood for.It's THIRUVAIYARU.It's a small village near Tanjore in Tamilnadu.It's basically famous for the Thyagaraja Aradhanas that take place every year durin the month of jan.It was the place of birth of my father.

But y did my dad have 2 name me with a place?I alaways asked him but only got a sarcastic smile in return.Wen he did name in such a way he shud've left it like 'T' only(it has a gravity rite like 'D').Imagine people havin names Mumbai Matre,Kandahar Qureshi,London Lincoln(they r pretty rhuming).Atleast v Indians r better.Look at the westeners they even use the months in the calendar as initials- August Milverton or January Jackson.Man they can go 2 any limit.Hats off dad ur not the only creative guy around.

I cud take all the teasin n crappin n ppl makin a foll out of me with my initial.But 1 day my initial became a timepass even for courierwallas.I'll try 2 reproduce the scene that took place b/w me n a guy workin for some courier service.This is how it went
Courier guy:-There's a parcel for Mr.M.Sundaresan(that's my dad).
Plz take it n sign here.
After that me with all my gutso n my effervescent style took the slip n signed in the way i usually do "T.ASHWIN SUNDAR".
Courier guy:-Wait a sec.R u by any chance their neighbour?
Ashwin :-No.Y do u ask?
Courier guy:-I mean ur initial starts with T & ur dad's name starts
with S & ur father has an initial M.
Ashwin :-Thanx for discoverin it n by the way I have many
dad's n several names.For each dad a different name
n a different initial.U got it.
Courier guy:-Strange family.

Man as if all this was not enuf here comes the ultimate comedy or tragedy wat ever it is.A kid in my apartment noticed this initial differences n asked my dad if I was an adopted son & was T my original Father's name.This was the height 2 which my initial took me n god knows wat other adventures r in store for me in the future.SHABBA KHAIR n catch u later.

"Bring on the Aussies"- This is the most repetitive n the worst sentence which can be heard.Ted Corbett I guess has forgotten the significance of this statement n uses this even England wins a tour match.Come july n the most xpected cricket clash of the year "THE ASHES" unfolds.How much ever Tedd Corbett manages 2 hype it or even if all the Englishmen shout in unison "Bring on the Aussies" nothin's gonna change what has been happenin n what will happen.Aussies thrashin the Englishmen is as good a fact n as assured a thing as v know that Sania Mirza wud beat her MOM in straight sets.I have nothin against Sania but that's the truth.

All the English fans do not take ur side's recent form as a sign that they wud capture the ashes.By recent form i meant England beatin Bangladesh.This wud've made every Englishman as proud as Sania wud be when she beats her MOM in straight sets(am a true Hyderabadi).For beatin the Aussies u need 2 have a spinner n yea the Englishmen do have 1 but he turns his arm more than the ball n half the time hez down with injury(piles!).

The Aussies have Shane Warne whoz been a constant source of demoralisation 2 the England team n the Aussies wud manage 2 get wickets even thru Macgills fulltosses.To add 2 all this they have their eternal foulmouth with them.Hez a strange guy indeed.He barks at the opposition even when hez not playin.Hez already started it n is sittin dangerously fit even on 499.God knows how many more will he add 2 it?He barks when he gets someone out or when someone leaves the ball or when sumone hits him beyond the ropes.The best thing 'bout him his he reacts the same way even when someone swears at his wife.

But even after sayin all this the Englishmen r very cunning.I feel they're usin this statement 2 promote tourism n increase their revenues.Hmmmm.....Newayz we'll know shortly what's gonna happen.To compound England's misery Peter Roebuck in his highly polished way of insulting has called in his own terms n words Freddie Flintoff a chucker when he bowls fast.I mean hez branded as a fast bowler so its obvious that he'll tyr 2 bowl fast.Freddie u better try somthin else like say hogging.But rite now am dyin 2 see the clash on clay.I jus can't wait 2 watch Federer trash Nadal.Hope u ppl too watch it n njoi.

catch u later.

Another day at office.That's what people say when u ask them "how did your day go?".But with me it's slightly different "Another day at Hyderabad".Life is sort of brooding and dull here without the rush,the enthusiasm and the uncertainities which surrounded me when I was in coll.This was even more alleviated by the fact that I stayed at hostel.This does not mean hostel is a place where u get treated royally,get the best food available on earth or have damsels dancing around u half-naked thru the night.It's even better than that.U form bonds that serve as a refresh buffer when ur lonely(am a COMSCI GRAD).I'll not get too much into this.

But how many of us really did something productive at coll?Am not speakin of rocket science.It's jus the basic things v r sopposed 2 do at coll - Study,Innovate,High grades,Paper presentations,no Arrears,finally get placed.In b/w all this u have 2 find time 2 luv or atleast flirt.I c the blackboard everyday,I have my eyes glued 2 it.But am I concentratin or thinkin how nice it'd be 2 date wid the woman wearin a dangerously low waist saree.But the only problem is she teaches me 'C' or is only 'C' n ne other bullcrap d essence of life.

All of us wud have climbed the same steps of our coll or the steps in our apartment thousands of times.But how many of us know how steps did v climb?Are our heads buried so deep into the bark of a tree that v dunno what a forest is?

Come xams n its gala time at coll.U get 2 c the most weird xpressions frm ppl whom u thought 2 be emotionless creatures.The most important thing 4 an xam 4 a hostel guy wud be fotocopies.1 guy has the book which results in a culmination of n no. of fotocopies which wud be torn,divided n re-divided among all the hostel hooligans.But who cares 'bout fotocopies when ur not borthered 'bout marks or grades?Proof of this is my 70% aggregate without arrears(seems pretty ok rite?).But wat's the diff b/w a 70 n a 90 when both of them have landed up in the same firm drawin the same amount of money?

When it comes 2 beautiful gals(there rnt many in my coll)the competition's pretty tuff.V have fites over a single bitch!Poor gal,what can she do?2 pick 1 frm a crowd cud be possible.But v'd say pick 5 n get 1 free(v follow the tradition-remember DRAUPADI).I never fell for anyone at coll but I fell for someone else not at my coll or at that place(Don worry it's not kiran Bedi).To sum it all the best thing I learnt from my friends

njoi & catch u later.
