The lady's blind...

not impartial. Jessica's killers breathe fresh air and are free to kill more. Justice.

Only in our country, can such a monstrous act occur and I am not talking abt the deed itself which was horrendous enuff. Letting it drag on for years and then wham, dismissed!
In other not so high-profile cases, the accused and the plaintiff and their relatives and their pets get old, and die, while the case lives on in dusty crumbling files. Justice

An old man in a village beat his neighbor up 44 years ago. He was released a day or so ago, his mind blank, his old wife (who'd remarried and was widowed by it) confused and his old foe-victim happy to have him back from the dead, the insane, the prison (synonyms these). Justice.

Salman Khan kills blackbuck, kills a laborer while inebriated and his bald look's being talked about. Justice.

And we say animals are way down the evolution chain?

To digress a bit, time for another look at freedom of speech, this time in the developed world. David Irving faces 3 years behind bars for denying an event.

Have to stop now. My mind's just abt to pop.

Heres a pic I took some days back. Kinda liked it. Those are moths under the light...or are they machchars? hmm...

Mixed feelings...

Good stuff happened. The One Above hears me, I think. Thank you. :-) Just when I thought.

Stuff not happening or stuff crawling, well, I steel myself and say theres bound to be a light at the end of the tunnel. Is it me or is it just the circumstances? I could get all masochistic n say, its me, boo hoo but it isn't.

Well, I'm going to hang on till the rope gets frayed and I know one way or the other.

Wish I could just merge into Oswald's cushy happy world. Henry, Daisy, the egg bad people. Quirky ones, yes. And hes what every kid shd aspire to be...kind, generous, brave, helpful and happy. A true friend. And Daisy's all ditsy n happy and loud, happy on her own and with ppl. Henry, the eccentric one, whos stuck in his groove. and... I can't believe it, I'm getting all mushy abt O and the gang. :-) Shes to blame.

Well, all I need is one plum meaty chance and that shd keep me busy.

Am getting prepared to get rather bored and out-of-sorts the coming days. I know I'm being mean, but can't help it.

Saw seinfeld after ages. I just love that gang. Friends is more cute and happy. Always with each other...Curb your enthu was another show i liked.

Anyway lemme go do something...

Till then.

I wonder how
I wonder why
Yesterday you told me 'bout the blue blue sky
And all that I can see is just a yellow lemon-tree
I'm turning my head up and down
I'm turning turning turning turning turning around
And all that I can see is just another lemon-tree

Was just lookin up stuff on sleep paralysis...stuff I've encountered quite some times....not recently tho. Bizarre, it is...but I would clinically and coldly put it down to an overworked mind, stress and no sleep, the REM factor etc. Duh, indeed!! Am not alone tho, quite some junta's been thru it in different ways...mine's been dramatic with divine visions thrown in. Trust moi to overdo it!

H591 makes it to our shores finally.

Must get hold of Haunted. Have read/heard a lot about the guy...hope its not just empty hype as is the case usually. It shd ideally scare the bejesus out of me. Not that I can actually think of reading it now. Kein zeit, and neglected books...woolf and marquez...

About time..

Seems like someone finally decided enuff's enuff and took the bull by the horns! You go, Gopi V. A bit late for me to join the crusade but can always get the pom-poms along...wonder what happened to that old case in Kolkatta against the bond bit, or was it just an urban myth...

Chanced upon this. :-) Clever mix n match...Tom Cruise on Oprah - As It Should've Been

Was out in my balcony doin sumthin and spotted a bunch of kids in the park nearby all set to make out...the girls are in their school uniforms for crying out loud! one chap has a bizzare peroxide head ....and theres this other bunch of kids, younger much, lurking in a strategic point...ready to catch the action. As an old teacher of mine used to say with a sigh, 'young blood!', funny now I think back, it was usually cos of one of my antics....

the meme thing

So, call me dense, or as ppl from my childhood days wd say, fused tubelight, had seen 'meme' bandied about on blogs. Now I know.
The silly what your toenails say about you, what you will be eating 50 years from now on a Sunday are all memes. Got the gyaan here What's a Meme?
Sehr interessant.
Hey, my previous post shows yesterday's date, i just spewed it minutes ago. Hmm. The plot thickens. Doesn't.

Thought I had something to...

write about. But, it fizzled. Anyway now that I am here...clemenceau's been recalled, tho no official confirmation .
Its getting hotter. Dread to think of May. There was this one year when May seemed insurmountable...just refusing to budge, each day just crawling by, painfully.

Saw RDB bits on cable. Good stuff, the last bit seems forced filmi.

I remember the weekends when I could stretch on my couch and watch great foreign flicks...both, famous and unknown. I forget the names and details but they were good. Satiating a part of me thats pretty much dormant.

I don't have much time for the past. But it still barges through on sundry afternoons. Before I show it the door. Faces, smells, words, half-forgotten places, moments...

I don't know where I am going, but I am on my way - D. Parker

I like this one - 'Today was total waste of makeup'

Odds and ends

Google - the chinese version. A let-down. Et tu gugu. Yahoo! helped the Chinese incarcerate a blog-tivist! Incredible
Dhoni bludgeons their bowling to death.
Cheney gives a reason to guffaw. What a perfect veep for the American peep.
Shiva Keshavan, the neglected champ. When oh when will we learn?
Clemenceau still waiting to get a toe in. 11 deer dead in Byculla.
Dilli - Ab garmi door nahin.
Arcelor still hangs in the balance.
Toon madness continues. Tissues with Lord Ram's image and Southern Comfort's Durga with bottles.
One man's humor, another man's blasphemy.
Wonder what Armin Meiwes has to say about all this. For him one man's meat is well, his meat. Morality, religion, ethics, sensitivity, sophistication....all pretty manmade constructs. Scratch the surface, and theres a beast inside.

Got me a mean deadline. Am I suicidal? Making sure that I totally zap my sanity. Anyway, that leads me to think...(haven't done that in a long time...think, I mean) I would definitely do away with myself out of sheer boredom. Thats like a sure way to bump me off. I wonder, what the stats many did themselves in out of pure b.? hmmm...seriously its a disease with me....getting bored, dropping off on stuff in like days. That and insomnia. Getting worse as I grow older.

Saw the cartoons yesterday, the ones that have really upset the Islamic community. Its a very thin line we mince on....good taste, not stepping on a person's religious nerves and freedom of press, speech, opinion, what have you....

Well, so, UB313 is the latest dude in our solar sys. The Pluto gang's pretty miffed with the upstart. Name-calling follows. Are we for real?!!!!

Back to the grindstone.
