I, Me, Myself.

[ by Latha (lathsmail@gmail.com) ]

Hey Latha, here’s to u. Way to go dear, a pat on my back. Well, no one can blame me for respecting myself now, can u? Here pals, hold my hand and I shall lead to this wonderful world of self realization. I am a best eg for puliya paarthu poonai soodu pottu kondathu. Inspired by the enormous creativity of bloggers all around, the schizo in me jumped awake and said that I can do it too after all isn’t all talents hidden initially. Armed with a laptop and so called self proclaimed hidden talent, I started (or is it ended?) to pen my thoughts into words. Starting from the stuff that I don’t like (isn’t it comparatively easier to vent out our frustrations and dislikes). I guess all of us are just waiting for an opportunity to take it out on someone what better place to do that than in a blog. But first, tried to check the latest posts of all fellow bloggers(?!)- (hey, come on, I have started to write, so the guys who are presently writing are my fellow bloggers, surely, I can claim that). Feeling inwardly happy that Maximus is a little out of form and what aNti writes about goes only 20000 feet above my head (he isn’t in my league, u see), and since is KG is busy scaring people out of their wits with his flashy antics and Anand having chosen specific subjects to write about. I thought that I will definitely have my share of readers. The huge looming threat seemed to come only from a jujubi one time Indiblog winner Lazy Geek, but me thinks I can charm him into stop writing about simple things in life and getting into some other hobbies like maybe deep sea diving or bungee jumping or something less adventurous like traveling by PTC footboard on Monday morning, when his only focus wud be on hanging on to the window rod and not drooling over Sonia Agarwal over Kodambakkam bridge. Hey, come one, give me a big hand. I did manage to write so much now, didnt I?

Now, I dedicate this piece of my writing to my earlier attempt(the first, actually hee hee hee) at writing something which I presumed would make the world sit up and look at me with respect (and a little weirdly too). This writeup is inspired by the reaction I got for my previous article. Profound silence! Isn’t silence supposed to be gold and talk silver and all of u know that I cant be anyone else than a typical Indian girl who knows the true value of gold. Well, I should say that my dogged determination (read arrogance) to make my fellow bloggers and readers(?!) life miserable is also inspired by my all time fav Kamal Hassan who cant be anything but himself at any point of time. Trust me guys, Narcissm helps atleast it definitely doesnt harm.. if we cant blow our own trumpets then how will we even be able to the tell the world that we have trumpet in the first place. Well, this logic cant be beaten now, can it?

In addition to dedicating this piece to myself (hey, only I read what I write), this also goes to all those people whose talents are trying to break free to set the world right, and those who are basking in the glory of their skills. 3 cheers to all you bloggers out there for enlightening ignoramasus like me about this world’s achievers and dreamers, the explored and unexplored, interesting trivia’s, right up to bringing back nostalgic memories of pleasant yesteryears, lightening speed todays and positively wild tomorrows.

A special note of thanks to Lazy Geek. For identifying the writing bone in me, its ok lazy, relax everyone is allowed to make one mistake in life and you made yours 🙂

  1. The sentence:

    “The huge looming threat seemed to come only from a jujubi one time Indiblog winner Lazy Geek, but me thinks I can charm him into stop writing about simple things in life and getting into some other hobbies like maybe deep sea diving or bungee jumping or something less adventurous like traveling by PTC footboard on Monday morning, when his only focus wud be on hanging on to the window rod and not drooling over Sonia Agarwal over Kodambakkam bridge”

    has 80 words and qualifies to be a paragraph by itself. It’s broken all creative writing rules including punctuation and the first and foremost – “Keep your sentences small”.

    Incredibly narcissm for one whose creative inputs is based on “critiquing” fellow bloggers.

  2. Ummm… ya see I myself dont understand how ppl can comprehend what I vomit online. Ok well, sometimes I am proud of what I write. Sometimes I am proud of the fact that ppl notice what I write. Sometimes I think I should write a cookbook. But then I realise I am just kidding myself. But hey I write cos I can. I serve mankind by putting them to sleep. Thats my purpose in life, at least for the time being till I get my dream job!
    So you do that too 😀 Have fun. Get yourself a log in on Blogger or wherever and spew rubbish. And believe me, there will be ppl to enjoy that too. Lets give each and every human being (or androids) what they want! Lets serve every niche audience. For the mainstream, they have the Geeks and the Kirubas, for the serious lot, they have the Siddins to light up their life and for the brain deads they have ME. Spew forth and let the posts flow.
    (P.S Am seriously flattered that you chose to mention me in the same breadth as the Geek, Sidin, KG and Anand, but I have a faint idea that you are elucidating the radical spread in blogger land, but do correct me if I wrong cos I’d love to be corrected in this aspect :D)
    (P.S 2: I am off colas for the last 9 months or so and hence that should be ample reason for my cold shouldering your earlier post on the cola wars. Too insignificant for me 😉 )

  3. Maybe we occasional guest bloggers on Lazygeek could do ‘comment inflation’ by patting each other on our hindsides.
    Yeah, the sentences are too long, and the punctuation haphazard. But Latha, don’t give up; it is the rule breakers who set the tone for the future.

  4. Indica : Thanks for the inputs. Will learn to write short & crisp sentences.

    aNti : We both live in the same city, trust me, there are atleast 10 guys in any/every IT company who mention ur nick that many number of times in a day… :).. Thanks for your comments…

    Ashok : Thanks for the encouraging words…. you write well too, i checked ur Review of Bombay Dreams… Can i count myself in, in ur Swantra Party 🙂 ???

  5. Hmmm… I am almost famous then. Another 10 more humans in each company. But I am concerned about the “10 guys”. So I am crossing my thumb about the other 10 being gals.

    ummm.. So thanks anyways and pass on the message to atleast 1 gal you know. That would be a great help to me 😉
