First things First
*This blog of mine has nothing to do with NEWTON though I love apples and am craving for an AppleI-Pod.
*I am no SCIENTOLOGY follower though I had nursed a crush on Tom Cruise.
*I am not engaged as yet, my RING finger is still empty.
Circa November2006.It was a week before the 1st end semester exams of my B.Engg. were to start, and I had been sleeping, drinking, eating, walking and talking only Newton’s ring.(a 2-3 page text in the chapter of Optical physics)
While my other hostel mates were busy delving into other extraneous subjects I was stuck up being fascinated by Newton’s ring.
Friends would ask, "how much is done for exams? ","Hey shrill, what are you studying right now?"
My resounding reply would boom in their ears "Newton’s ring, fellas."
One day a friend took pity on me and said"It shouldn’t take you so long after all its just a 3 page long text,should I help you?"
I simply No-thanked her.
.Now how on earth could I explain my new friends what a procrastinator I am!!
Not that the text needed too many grey cells to be charged,in order to comprehend its meaning.
I was just not getting ahead with it.....uuuuhhhmmmm…..
No, It (read:the text) was not getting ahead with me….probably so because I am a forced believer in the Parkinson’s law….What’s that???..
1)the observation that work always expands to fill the time set aside for it.
2)work will take as much of time as you give it.
If you thought the above meanings were too..euphemistic and obscure..
To be simple
3)not that good at time management.
Alluding to the above explanation..I had been thinking for quite some time to launch my blogsite(ooohhh!!doesn’t it sound oomphy??…...naaaa.….), until I read an article in the newspaper saying how the junta is being smitten by the blog bug,and how people get addicted to it…,how netizens develop an insanity over it…..
I thought …neither do I blog,nor do I get addicted to it and insanity will definitely be at bay(I must add I am a proud Ranchitte and the mental asylum is pretty far from my place.)
Circa December2006.I was getting bugged with life during my semester breaks(trust me too…much of feasting at times leads to burn out…) I started gazing at Blogosphere and after reading some awesome blogs written by an avid blogger...All it did was, rekindled the “I wanna blog too...” instincts in me.
Then I got obsessed with the contents of my inaugural blog,blogsite’s name,blog title and subtitle…
I would spend hours in my balcony thinking about it, thinking about it at the lunch and dinner table,during my siestas…very much like Newton’s Ring.This time Mom would quiz me,"What happened dear,you seem so lost,everything ok??”..
So many blogsite names got coined in my mind…e.g.paradoxical princess, rambling raconteur,clandestine confessions, ….until I went nuts with names as Cercopithecoid(a supposedly intelligent monkey),
and lymphadenopathy(a morbid illness)….
Then a friend suggested “why don’t you go for something simpler?”….
It took a split second for me to come with something as simple as SHRILL VOICES(pun intended)
So here I am …
A NEW KID ON THE BLOG.
