He is my love,
He is my friend,
Don't mistake me about what I intend.

Distress, Joy or Anger takes me to him
Emotions about to overflow, they are reaching the brim.
Things galore he has to share,
He is one among the many about whom I care.

Numerous secrets he does hold,
Many more of them are yet to unfold.
You are reading about the one whom I told...

Mr.Bloggie is what I call him
He's my love, my sweetheart, my darling !


Retro Rules !

Posted by Ramya Shankar on Thursday, January 26, 2006
As you people would have noticed, I've made minor changes in the appearance of my blog. I've made it look all monochromatic. Black and White, 2 of my most favorite colors dominate the blog along with a hint of grey here and there.
I tried finding a template that would suit my needs n tastes, but all I have is a day's time and very little patience. So, I kept the basic template and tweaked around with colors.
I also found a picture for my blog title that seemed in sync with the name "Somethings & Nothings"
Doesn't it have a retro feel to it?
Do drop in your comments and suggestions.

P.S : The cliched shoutbox also has been added. So scream away....

Everything in this world is created twice !

And then, later before the eyes !

The best way to make your dreams come true is to

She felt the hands slipping away,
She struggled to hold on,
Time was not a friend this way,
She tried it all, but in vain.

He was longing to see her,
Monochromatic was his life, until she came.
The distance was not helping either,
Times can be so unpredictable like water droplets on a window pane.

State of the art technology,
Wireless communication,
Slick gadgets, nothing can ever compensate
For the times spent in recollecting the memories with a loved one.

He was gone,
She was lost and broken,
The search has just begun,
Lots to discover, boundaries to cross, feelings sunken.


A new beginning

Posted by Ramya Shankar on Tuesday, January 17, 2006
With the results much to my surprise, a 85% aggregate has me grinning for the last 24 hours. So much that, even my cheeks hurt now. Anyways, with that I saw the end of a tortuous E.D. Ugh!! How I hated it. This time I've got 3 electrical lab classes, which is no way related to my department. But I'm sure anything could be better than those diagrams that I couldn't even comprehend.
We began Sem-2 today officially with MGR's birthday celebrations in our campus. Gracing the occasion were "Gabtun Vijaykanth", Director-Actor "Bagyaraj", comedian "Vivek" and a not so popular stunt master.
Guess classes would resume in full swing from tomorrow and that means getting back to a tight 11 hour schedule. Which also means, I need to wake up at an ungodly hour of 5.30 in the morning.

How I wish I could fast-forward my life!!!

Disclaimer: I barely scraped thru E.D. Just Escape!


Somethings n Nothings

Posted by Ramya Shankar on Saturday, January 14, 2006
I'm being such a paradox. I'm bored of sitting at home and doing nothing, yet I don't want college to reopen on Monday. In the last one month of the so called Semester Holidays, my social life was varying from 2 to 4 on a scale of one to ten. But still I enjoyed every moment of all the nothing I had to do. And yeah, it is quite a task in itself to sit and have nothing to do. Now, I don't want to disgress by explaining how I had nothing to do, despite my sudden realisation a few days back that infact I did have quite a bunch of errands to run. I'm rushing off with those now and also trying to relish every moment.
As I sit before the eerie glow of my monitor in this wee hour, all these vivid thoughts come rushing into my mind. Had to pen them down, so do pardon me.
Hopefully, from next week, I'll be having something better to blog about considering the amount of nothings that I've posted over the last few weeks. And hey! I justified my blog title too !
Also as I delve deeper into engineering, I could do with some luck !!

Prudent thoughts creep into my mind, now that college reopens in a couple of days. With the books putting on weight as I climb the next rung of engineering, I delve into my shelf for the hall ticket. All unfinished tasks are remembered now, and with a solo performance from mom every morning on the procrastination theme, things don't seem to get better !
Trepidation creeps in as I read those little words printed
"Results will be announced on the reopening day"


Tall tales

Posted by Ramya Shankar on Friday, January 06, 2006
I hail from a tall family. Err.. A family of tall people. Atleast my generation is. I don't know any genetic theories to support this, but here's my go at it.
My grandfather was tall. My grandmother is short. My father and mother are of average height. Now don't ask me what average is... Its a relative term in this context.
All my cousins are over 6 feet. Giants. LOL ! But then I don't know why, I've always had a fancy for tall guys. ;-) Maybe coz my family consists only of tall guys?? If not all, atleast most of them.
After swimming, cycling, walking, jogging, skipping, jumping and stretching, I managed to reach a decent (well I presume so) 165 cm. Of course some credit should go to my family for the genes and DNA and blah blah blah.

But now, the "grow taller" syndrome is getting back to me. So, of lately I've gone back to a few of those above mentioned routines. And the difference?? It seems slow, but definitely was worth a try.

Well, I'm taller by a centimeter now.!!!

P.S : Do I take all ur comments at THE CHANGE to be applicable for this post too?



Posted by Ramya Shankar on Friday, January 06, 2006
The day I received a comment on my blog, I was surprised that someone actually was reading all that I was crapping about. That's when I started becoming conscious of what I started posting.
This guy Sujith was the person who was the lucky one to comment 1st on my blog and the only honored soul who has commented on all my posts.
Sujith you're the best. You rock. (Do you? )
His posts have a personal touch (err maybe coz they are?) and can have u in splits. Guess that's natural for jokers like him. A sensitive soul that he is, he was slightly troubled by the readership of his blog. A really lazy bum that he is... he hates the concept of posting regularly. After much nagging from none other than me, he would get bugged and post something which by the time you finished reading, the rains itself would have stopped in Madras.
Anyways, in case people who are reading this, do visit Sujith here and let him know that we chennaites also visit people of other states.
And for the selfish geek that I am, another post is in queue. Do read that too. And Sujith, keep commenting and do continue posting atleast at a higher frequency. There are a few deprived souls like me who do visit you. ;-)


The Change !

Posted by Ramya Shankar on Tuesday, January 03, 2006 in
Its been a long time since I tried my hand at romantic fiction after THIS. So here goes something out of my attic.

"Love is something that can happen to men and women who know each other" When she read the quote, she found it really amusing. The thought of falling in love with a person she knew all her life, seemed farce to her. Her brain started rolling out names of people who were possible prospects. Just then her mobile beeped.

He was leaving to Kodai with his friends the very same day and had thought of messaging her before he left. So he pulled out his mobile and messaged her 4 little words "leaving now, bye bye". Message delivered. He was too pragmatic to consider the notion of falling in love.
But both of them didn't realize that, this was the starting point to the change their lives were about to undergo. She messaged back.

All his friends were in several stages of sleep. He wasn't able to sleep, thanks to his nocturnal habits. He messaged her again from the bus. She wasn't like before today.
There was a major power-cut in her locality and she couldn't sleep either. Just then her mobile beeped again.

The messages kept pouring in. All the emotions within them started pouring out. Both of them thought they knew each other really well, but everything proved wrong that night. Neither of them were bothered about their phone balances being screwed. The roaming charges for him and the postpaid non-free SMS pack for her.

Topics untouched were being spoken. He found a new person in her. She felt like talking her mind out to him. Thanks to all the communication gap between them which was being bridged now. She was battling against herself whether to ask him or not. But by the time she decided not to, her fingers had already reacted faster than her mind. The message was sent.

"I've always liked u, I tout u didn't like me" He knew no joys like this, when he read that msg from her. He replied... "Ofc not, I've had a crush on you for so long, I tout u didn't like me" She was too shocked to beleive her eyes when she saw his reply.

The 4 hour messaging session that night, had brought in a new dimension to their lives. A change in which both of them are living today. A change that neither thought would ever happen to them.

2006 has begun well.. Touch wood!!
A caring family
Loving friends
Mouth watering food
Gifts galore
Numerous calls
Uncountable messages
A few mails
A bunch of cards

But still its not the materialistic things that matter to me. It pains me that I'm not able to spend quality time with my dad. My most beloved cousin is oceans away from me. My best friend is leaving the country. My little nephew is learning to crawl.
Here's the bonanza -
College reopens in 14 days and that means I have to face the ramifications of my exams in 2 weeks.
I hope all this is a reverie. I'm going through a myriad of emotions now. I wish I could alter time.
