Today is bliss..what's in store tomorrow...?

My life has been blessed by god, rather personally, may not be academically. I joined an Engineering college in October 2008, a mediocre college with the best kind of people in there. I made some unforgettable friends there. 

I and my wolf pack, its been a roller coaster ride these 3 years 3 months. Some one made my birthdays great, by showing up in front of me. Some day they behaves mean and I feel bad, and just when I start to hate them, they show how special I am in their life, and I just say then.."bhag ja be..Paka mat..".

Friends.. of all kind.. an irresponsible roommate friend.. who despite a bad room-cleaner has the most clean heart among my friends...he is a gem, if you believe me. 

A friend, with a drinking habit, still he knows when he needs to stop and carry his responsibilities.

A Speedy friend, who is just fast, be it typing the keyboard or writing a program or riding bikes. He is a cute one though.

A reserved friend, who believes in religion, and values his Allah above everything, he has his own ways, and I respect that, he is a great friend too. 

A friend of all moods, most of the time underestimating his calibers, a protected one, a dominated one, a dominant one, he listens to his heart, I have noticed million times. 

A estranged friend, lost in the rush of life, used to be my ultimate partner, in every endeavour of mine, he leaves the college, but he is still as special as anyone else. 

A friend, who is rather sweet, we tease him for being sweet, but truly he is just a nice, caring friend. 

A selfish handsome friend, well that's what we call him for a nickname, and truly, he is not selfish at all.

A prodigal friend, makes fool of himself, by reacting abruptly to anything, but he is a like a kid, if you give him space, he will care for your problems as he cares for his own.

&&& 

A friend who remained with me all my life, when I was a 8 year old kid, I was introduced to her, When I was 14, I started to care about her, I was 17, when I started to miss her, she remained with me all the time, when I won, when I lost, when I was high or low, or when I was out of my senses, or when I was in love, she remained there intact. Truly, She is truly my one of the Best friends.


I don't know whats coming tomorrow but this is my 'Today', I am proud of it, every characters of my story are special in its own way. One just can't flip them. But I feel bad, what I am gonna do when they will drift apart from me in search of their own destiny. As I heard somewhere,

" College is the longest Vacation" and I believe this vacation is gonna end soon.

-I am not gonna miss them ever, I carry them in my hearts, for life now.

The name is Khan.. Khalid Khan..


      29th September, 2008 was the decided date as the first day of college, I was new to this city, I hated Indore then, I went there taking a taxi, as I was unaware of any other source. It cost me a good 350 bucks, really it did. As I reached there in a hurry, I saw a seminar was going on and Rahul Sharma, one of the faculty members, was giving tips on “how to handle ragging”. I felt irritated for my 350 bucks. I could have managed to save some money there, had I known, there isn't any classes to miss, but anyways, I made 5 friends on that particular day, Khalid, Akhilesh and Alok from my Dept. IT, while Shashikant & Yogesh from CSE and ECE branches respectively.
I didn’t get along very well with the latter four, I struck a chord with KHALID KHAN, and I tell you what, I selected a gem of a friend on that Monday, I quite find him very interesting straight away, I figured out there was something in him, I knew he is going to stay on the "sacred" list of true friends. We were totally different from each other, and in a way it reasoned for our great friendship, you just can't get along with a shadow of yours, for life to be fun, you need differences. Khalid became one of those special buddies in my life.

My IndiScore: Coming of Age.

It was june 2011, when I joined IndiBlogger, I was a less frequent blogger then (am still only a weekly blogger) with some 40 posts on my blog, Indiblogger analysed my blog score 57, considering my 40 posts. But now I was no fresher to Indiblogger, it started to analyse my score on the basis of my monthly Activity, so in the next month, I managed to get only 35 out of 100, this made me understand how I need to be more frequent with blog-posts, the next time I leaped my way through 38, posting a couple more posts than the previous month that passed. In the next month that followed, I came up with a good 58 scores, I was satisfied, but still I wanted to attain the 70s and 80s and perhaps 90s mark. The next score came down to 53, but somehow I managed to keep myself in the 50s. 

And then this happened:


I went to attend HP Indi Blogger Meet in New Delhi on 11th of December, 2011, and learnt a lot from many bigger names in the Art of blogging, and made some friends and admirers too, I found some legendary bloggers too in that "sacred" event, whom I admire a lot when it comes to writing/blogging. Although I posted only 6 times since that bloggers meet "extravaganza", my blog has got huge number of hits, it made a flaunting impact with December 2011 being the highest visited month of my blog with 700 visitors, and then January 2011 surpassed the previous best with over a thousand hits in just 20 days and still counting. As for comments, 16 people cared to comment on my blog post before the blogger meet, but these 2 months have been revolutionary for my blog, a growth of over 300% more readers and 2000% more comments, my indiScore came of age and is now a whopping 72.


I wish I keep up the good score to higher extents..

Real Steel: Plot and Summary

This Hugh Jackman flick is already 3 months old and I believe, you already have screened it somewhere, but if you haven't, I will strongly recommend this movie to my readers. To be honest, I haven't seen Hugh Jackman, in any character other than the wolverine, so it was him, which made me sit and watch this movie, and as the movie kept going further, I started loving it big time. This movie has got style, your love for Ring-fight cinemas will develop like anything, you may consider it a sci-fi but somewhere deep inside, you will know that actually its very touching. Starring Hugh Jackman and Dakota Goyo, real steel is about three most important characters, Charlie, Max and Atom. In a time, when Ro(bot) Boxing is quite an entertainer, Charlie is a cool under performer in such a sport, and is father to Max. Max believes that Atom, being an old generation Robot, is capable of beating stronger Robots than what it is provided to play against. Its a Coming-of-age story of Charlie (Hugh Jackman) and Atom (the G2 Robot). Charlie once used to be a big name in Boxing is now living life with what so ever he could earn through his Robots. Max one day found Atom in a junkyard of Robot Parts, and brought it home and found that actually this "Atom" is more smarter than most of  the latest version Robots, I would consider this flick as a Coming of Age Sci-fi movie for Kids, Youth and Family Audience. Do watch for some emotional adventure executed brilliantly. Don't miss the initial credits, you will find a name called "Steven Spielberg" and you will be watching with more enthusiasm then. You must watch this one if you are the kind who likes to go for intelligently graphed emotions.

How AMAR's fiery tongue got rid of SALMAN's Anger..

It was a weekend this july, when AMAR encountered one of the most thrilling events of his life. After working hard, the whole week, he finally thought that it's time to party even harder. So he called up his old Pals SID and SKY. The three of them decided to go to this pub called VENOM at Bandra, Mumbai. 

At around 7.30 PM, Sky picked up Amar and reached to the Venom disc, Sid came with her girl friend SHONALI on his new possession, he bought a week ago, The Harley Davidson Iron 883, he just loved it more than himself.

Unlike college days, life was easy for the three of them, they had pretty safe and secured jobs in different MNCs, which earned them handsome salaries. So ignoring the tariffs, they ordered expensive food and liquor and partied hardcore. All they wanted to have an unforgettable party yet again.

Sid and Shonali ran to the dance floor as soon as they reached the place, they looked beautiful while coupling on the dance floor. Every other couple faded in the glamour of this duo. Amar was envious of them, Amar had a perfect life, he had everything close to perfection in his life but a girlfriend was only he never managed to have, it was something Amar must have written on top of his priorities, he just needed a girl and that too, too desperately.

At around 11.45 PM, Sky dropped Amar some blocks away from his house, as Amar wanted to take a little walk before being home to avoid the hangover next morning, also Amar had his way of enjoying the ecstasy of liquor, a bit alone at the end of its effect.

As Amar headed to his place, he saw two tall girls walking on the other side of the road. He decided to go and talk to them and try his luck.

He knew he was too drunk to pour any decency, but still he couldn't resist his desperation, so he didn't stop and went to them.

"Hi girls" he striked a conversation.

"can we talk for a while ?" not quite asking.

"yes... say, do you need something?" said one of them.

"No, not at all, but I want to give you my company for a while"

"I am Amar, may I know your names please" he was literally piling on.

He tried controlling his drunken mannerism, and he did an almost perfect job to it.

"Hello, Amar"

"I am SUNNY and she is my sister VIDA" Sunny did the intros.

Amar couldn't believe his luck, he never thought he could make a girl introduce herself in the middle of the night, that too when he was not even in his complete senses. Respecting his little achievement, he started to change gears.

"can we be friends..?" said Amar.

The girls did avoid being rude to a stranger, so they behaved well then.

"yeah, sure" Vida said .

Amar liked her positive gesture and all of a sudden, he developed an infatuation for Vida. As they walked more, Amar kept putting proposals after proposals. He was in no mood to move his foots away from the accelerator, so he kept blabbering all through. For some reasons, these girls agreed to everything Amar said or proposed.

"lets meet up tomorrow morning then" Amar fixed the date too.

"why not"

"by the way, thats our home, next to this building"

"we must part here"

"bbye" Vida summarized.

"okay"

"bye, sweetheart" Oh god... Perhaps Amar put on the nitrous button too early.

They rushed towards their apartment, a bit uncomfortably at the end. Amar did not notice it though. The aftereffect of the alcohol was long gone and Amar could only concentrate on, at that moment was Vida, the goddess of his life.

He admired himself more than ever. He sat on a wall near the place Vida and Sunny parted with him and planned about things to do and places to go with Vida while he inhaled a few puffs of his cigarette.

"perhaps, I should have initiated a conversation like this in college or in office"

"never mind, Amar, you did it well" Amar was talking to himself only.

As Amar was shaping his near future with caution, someone patted him on the shoulder.

"yeah..?" as he turned.

"how dare you talk to Vida and Sunny?" a tough pumped up man was standing in front of him, with him 3 other men.

Amar was frustrated at being interrupted, so he burst out on him immediately.


"what are you talking about..huh..? and who the hell are you ?" said the frustrated Amar.

"I am SALMAN"

"got it"  Salman said in aggression.

Salman was Vida's all angry, hot-headed brother, even their father couldn't stop him to fight sometimes.

"so what..? I don't know who you are talking about" Amar acted confident.

"I did nothing, okay" he continued.

Amar's confident tone somewhat pulled Salman back from his normal angry self, but still he tried to confront with words.

"Ah.. is that so, why don't we just talk to the girls then" Salman offered.

"I wont go, why would I..?" Amar protested

"if you haven't done anything wrong, why the hell are you resisting to go with me.. huh.." Salman shouted in frustration.

"Lets talk it out man" Amar pretended to be confident and went with him.

While on the 2 minute walk to Vida's home, Amar tried to remain calm and composed, he did well though, when they reached the place, Salman called up Vida.

"Vida" Salman called up from downstairs.

"Vida, just come" Salman Shouted.

Salman sends away his 3 men, as the culprit was now in his farms.

"yes bhaijaan" comes Vida with Sunny.

Seeing her, Amar had a sense of relief, after all Vida and Amar connected quite well hardly 15 minutes ago.

"is he the guy ?" Salman asked.

"yes bhai, he is the one" Vida confirmed within a blink of the eye. Of course, Amar had to  pay the penalty for speeding up like that, his desperation was something that needed to be fixed.

Amar's face went pale, he was dumb struck to Vida's this version, he went into flashback of the last 30 minutes of his life now, every single word he said to Vida and every reaction of her, the parts when he asked her to be friends with him or when he offered to meet her the next morning, he still could not figure out what exactly went wrong, although he never realized that a guy is not supposed to be piling on a girl without permission, and that too when your clock says "its almost midnight, buddy" with all the thoughts processing in his brain, he was continously looking at Salman biceps now. 

"what should I do with you now Amarrrr..." Salman was roaring like a lion.

Amar took a deep breath and continued in his very calm and composed way, he carried right from the time, Salman came to confront him, he settled himself to another act of confidence, and then he started to speak finally.

"Oh... so you are Vida, he is talking about" Amar said looking at his 'ex-presumed girl friend'.

"first of all, these women started the conversation with me" Amar lied straight in their face.

"I was going to my home, when they asked me for a lighter"

"I don't understand why the hell they wanted this lighter." Amar tried playing melo-drama here.

"what" Salman's eyes widened , the girls went in shock.

"Vida.. do you smoke.. sunny..?" Salman furiously enquired.

"No.. Bhai jaan we don't smoke at all, he is a big-time liar." the girls almost cried out loud.

"Aww... how sweet of you, of course he will trust you only, after all you two are the women here" Amar tried to make them look like fools" but I know the truth okay."

"I will not let him buy what you are trying to sell here" Amar announced.

"look... you" Salman tried to threaten Amar. "I know guys like you, I  can see that you are drunk and may be you went out of your mind." Salman spoke. 

"but you messed with the wrong guy, you get that?" Salman said.

"listen brother" Amar said while rounding his arms around Salman's neck. "am I the first person in this area who have been drunk at this time of the clock, no.. right..?" Amar played his cards well.

"you look like a man of style, I am sure, drinking is not a big issue for you" Amar continued.

"why are you relating the alcohol with this matter." Amar finished.

"I am not relating it, I just want you to confess and apologize to start with." Salman started being reasonable now, that got rid of his anger a little bit.

Amar noticed it well, and started to take an upper hand over Salman.

"Listen man... enough now.." Amar shouted. "I live in this place from last 10 years" although he was hardly residing there since 3 months, but he didn't stop "I have more contacts than you. People know me well enough to take my side on this stupid issue."

"Are you threatening me..hmm.." Salman asked with his eyes sharpened.

"No, I am not threatening" Amar calms himself down seeing Salman's anger building again.

"I tell you one thing......" Started Amar.

Amar was looking for some good cheesy lines to get out of this ugly situation, and then he saw a large banner of a political campaign by SANJU BABA, a good powerful figure of the area, rather known for his Bhai-giri, he was once an MLA of the area, Amar and Salman have their houses in. Aware of this fact, Amar tries this ACE of the pack right then at the right moment.

"I want to let you know, that I know Sanju baba, very well" Amar tries to threaten now.

"and he knows what kind of guy I am, so you better watch out whom you are talking with." Amar said in style.


"really.. how the hell do you know Sanju Baba" asked Salman rather amazed to know Baba talks to guys like him too, but still he was out of aggression now.

"that is another thing, but he is a dear friend of me." Amar lied straight away.

"listen brother.. you don't have to tell about this little endeavor of us to Sanju Baba, he is a good friend of mine too and I don't wanna make his friends, my enemy." Salman was melting now like anything.

"Hmm... I am not going to discuss it anywhere and I won't tell him either, but you can't just  shout on decent people over here, just like that without even cross checking the situation twice and if needed, more times than that. By the way, if you are Sanju's friend, you are virtually my friend, so tell me if you need any favor". Amar turned the situation a full 360 degrees in his favors now.

Although he was nervous enough hearing about the friendship between Salman and Sanju, but he couldn't let it show up on his face anyways,  he prayed to god that by any means, the man in the banner must not know about it that he used his name like this, but still he continued.

"and as for your sisters, I would only say, they have now a big brother called Amar." oh my god, Amar tried to talk like Sanju now.

meanwhile, the girls could only listen to what Amar had in store for them, since he made them quiet in the very initial stages of the debate by dragging them to this smoking thing. Salman was still unsure of the fact if their sisters smoke or not, so they had no other choice rather than being silent and listen to the men talking.

"great" Salman said. "lets shake hands here and never misunderstand each other again." Salman handshaked.

"Sure, I think they are not the woman I talked with by the way, perhaps there is a great confusion all along. they don't look like smokers anyway" Amar said.

"yes... yes... yes.. yes..." the girls had only this much to say.

By saying this, Amar avoided the virtual smoke-test on the girls and perhaps its consequences on him later. The girls were at least relaxed now, although they did not succeed to get rid of Amar, Amar took them out of this ugly situation.

"are you sure" Salman asked cautiously.

"yepp" replied Amar.

"phew...thats good then" Salman was happy now.

"okay, I must go now" 

" I have more important things to do in life any ways" Amar taunted and walked away in style. He did walk fast though, avoiding any other question by Salman.


In about 2-3 minutes, Amar was out of sight. As Amar reached his home, it was already 1.15 AM, he called up Sid and Sky and did a conference call with them. the guys laughed like hell. They were extra impressed by Amar, considering he pulled himself out of a rather too deep 'shitty' situation.

and that is how Amar's FIERY TONGUE helped him come out of this ugly situation.

2012: Plans and Strategy.

Of all the new years that came in the recent past, 2012 is perhaps one of the most important one, for personal, academic and global reasons. I wish a very happy new year to all my readers, I hope all of you do well in your lives, while I'll try to write even more on my blog than what I claim. Speaking of which, I must share with you the resolution I made on January 1, 2011, I promised myself to be delivering blog posts at least twice a week, but all I could do is 1 post every 2 week. that was sad and of course my bad.


 I blogged 27 times last year and I am really disappointed with it, I am not going to have a future for my blog if I go on like this, so starting with some resolutions:

1)    I will blog at least once in a week. [not being too ambitious]
2)    I will try to be a better human being and citizen of my country. [one should always consider this one]
3)    I will release my book, before 23rd of April. [this one is really important]
4)    I will be reading more and more now. [read more, write better]
4.1) I will move on a little from fiction and read some real material like Biography or Philosophy.
4.2) I will start reading Mein Kampf by Adolf Hitler, this week only [its my dream read]
5)    I'd start earning this year [it will be important to mention for motivation]
6)   'I' will be more productive than usual. [will explain it after something I will produce out of creativity]
7)    I will be a bigger researcher of the Hollywood Industry. [I already am, but'll dig more nose than usual]


And now some thanksgiving as I did it last year as well, before that I should pour some stats over the place below:

Total number of visitors in 2010: 1580
Total number of visitors in 2011: 4190 [that is when I joined Indi Blogger]

people from Finland hit my blog the most of number of times in 2010, this year in 2011, its USA, where my blog has been read some 700 times. [both the countries are behind India of course]so thanks to all the Americans out there, and there is this reader from Mountain view, California who really likes to read my blog, thanks to him/her as well, and I'd say thanks to Indi Blogger who are mainly responsible for having an almost 300% growth of visitors on my blog in one year.

Biggest Event of 2011 for me:  December, The HP Indi Blogger meet in New Delhi, it introduced me to great bloggers from India.
Next best thing that happened with me in May: Mail Today published my little articles thrice on 5th, 19th and 24th may in their Interactive section. It was really appreciating. Links are HEREHERE and HERE.

Thanks for the enhanced appreciation.
I couldn't ask for more in just 18 months of my blog.
