The Music-Impaired

I have a disability when it comes to music- understanding it and appreciating it.

So much so that sometimes when I stand with my friends, I can't help but feel that they are an alien bunch talking gibberish in an alien language about this thing they call music. I stand there dazed and confused, seemingly lost in their conversations laced with words like melody, rythmn, beats and what not.

They say its World Music Day today; and that I have a serious problem.

Sania Mirza and Laloo: The IE correlation

Sania Mirza appears again on the enginerd weblog.

This time for two reasons:
1. She is back in Top 50 again. Good going Miss.
2. The Indian Express (IE) goofup where her pic is with the caption: "Railway Minister Lalu Prasad cuts cake during the celebration of his 60th birthday as Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, Congress". Some correlation this: Sania in 50. Lalooji just out of his 50s.




Not quite the intended caption!!!

Bombay update:
Last couple of days in Bombay have been hectic and a lot of fun. Back to Bangalore tomorrow morning. And I heard Desh was on Radio City!

TOI fanboy

Girl: Did you know this [...] happened?Me: Yes, I read about it in the TOI.Girl: You read the TOI?Me: Absolutely. I am a big Information junkie.Girl(with that unapprovinglook): You got to be kidding me! You mean you actually look up the TOI for information???Me (quipping): Oh yes, I do! In fact, I start with the supplement- The Bangalore Times.
Wonder why girls got to act so smart!

Weekend plans?

At lunch today, the topic of discussion was passion for motorcycles; and by the end of it, we had planned out midnight ride to Nandi Hills.

Didn't turn out to be a particularly bad idea, considering Local Live estimated it just over 6000 miles :O


Bangalore to Nandi Hill in just 6000 miles

Didn't know they had a Nandi Hill in Kenya too.
