Which Dark Knight Character Are You?

You are Batman. You take your role in the world very seriously, and live up to your responsibilities diligently. You have felt pain in your life, and this pain guides you and reminds you of how important peace and safety is in the world. You train both your mind and body ruthlessly and have never called in sick for anything- EVER! You are naturally intelligent and are constantly sharpening your thinking skills and pride yourself on staying up to date on world events. It isn’t always easy for you to ask for help because you have a huge streak of pride in your soul, but you are not a fool- so when you need a helping hand, you take it! You believe in justice and help seek it.

Drift away, my little paper boat

Filed under: Poetry,Sobriety,Uncategorized — Teal @ 11:20 pm

This is the story of a little paper boat
With nothing on it, but heavy hopes afloat
Made with multiple flaws, folded paper
With an uncertainty of may be, later . . .

May be someday this float will drift away
Will cross the horizon, fructifying the dreams astray
May be someday, this one will shine across the sea
Achieving a sense of timelessness, an eternity

Maybe this one might get sunken by rain
or maybe picked and flushed down the drain?’
May be someone might pick it up and fix
the flaws present, sans malice  and tricks

But as we watched the little boat sail
along an end that was a one way trail
we knew it’d hit the wall soon
and probably hit rock bottom before noon

Little did we know that the drain lead the way
to a new dawn, where hopes did not go astray
a route to a new start nonethless
one to reach a destination , one flawless

The folds on the paper were all the more shown
The burden on the little one, to many unknown
So drift away my little paper boat
Save the faith, keep my hopes afloat . . .

So it has been quite sometime since I put up something on my blog. Wanted to vent out the fact that my birthday this year went on worse than any other normal weekday but then decided against that.

Wanted to put up a post last week, but was unable to do that since I was away for some medical reasons. But I just wanted to put this pathetic filler to let you know that I have a bunch of stuff on my mind which will eventually find it’s way to my blog!

PS: Wrote this one on livewriter!!! 😀

Only Heart : A tag post, after a long time!

Filed under: Tags,Uncategorized — Teal @ 8:56 am

It has been a really long time, since I have been tagged. Senor Brat has done the honours, so will do! [Can’t refuse that guy 😛 ]

  1. Put your iPod (or other source of music) on shuffle mode.
  2. For each question, press the next button to get your answer.
  3. You must write the name of the song no matter what. No cheating!

Simple, ain’t it? 😉 Here we go!

“If someone says ‘Is this okay?’, you say?”
Mr.Mister – Broken Wings
Oh my! What do I say for this one?

“What would best describe your personality?”
Jamiroquai – Canned Heat
You know this boogey is for real …. Got canned heat in my heels tonight baby!Well now this makes a wee bit of sense 😀

“What do you like in a guy/girl?”
Ilayaraja – Janani Janani
My ideal guy should be a god? Metaphorically, maybe?

“How do you feel today?”
Tum se hi [Remix] – Jab we met
Well, it’s a monday morning, so you decide. Btw, the song has no relevance with how I feel today!

“What is your life’s purpose?”
John Mayer – My stupid mouth
Keeping my stupid mouth from getting me into further hassles, but that is a precautionary measure, not Purpose!

“What is your motto?”
Apolcalyptica – Nothing Else matters
Forever trusting who we are, and nothing else matters. Life is a crazy journey, you just have to believe in yourself and take a plunge without wondering if there is a safety net anywhere in sight. Consequences will happen no matter what the nature of cause. [Getting too philosophical here, I think!! ]

“What do your friends think of you?”
Thiruda thiruda – Raasathi en usuru ennuthilla
They love me to the point that they will die lest I leave them 😉 No I am not being narcissistic! Merely translating the lyrics of the song. . .

“What do you think of your parents?”
The Corrs- Summer Sunshine
Yep, they are the rays of sunshine in my dull boring life! 😀

“What do you think about very often?”
Something Something – Nu ostharante na odhanntana
Hmmm, yes I have always wanted to act like a raving lunatic, strum electric guitars like I am possessed in front of a respectable middle aged crowd. [Oh come on, who am I kidding!] The jugalbandi part is fun, though 😉

“What is 2+2?”
Linkin Park – Points of Authority
Forfeit the game, coz tomorrow when it’s all done, you reap what you sow. Annual hike around the corner, and I know that some undeserving twits will get more than me, and as per top level management math, 2+2 can be anything from 3 , 10 or even 15% Many mathematicians have voluntarily checked themselves in at Arkham, fearing a torrent of diplomatic crap as justification from the afore mentioned people 😐

“What do you think of your best friend?”
New York Nagaram – Jillunu Oru kaadhal
Well, this song reminds me of only one person, and that aint my best friend! 😉

“What do you think of the person you like?”
Usher – Yeah
Got nothing to say here. Shuffle mode gone LOCO! Interpret this the way you like!

“What is your life story?”
Dekho nashe mein – RACE
The world has gone nuts. Lots of stuff going on inside. One thing very weird, when any question of my life props up here, all dance related numbers are coming up! I cant dance to save my life! :-S

“What do you want to be when you grow up?”
Aerosmith – Living on the edge
Yeah baby! I want to take life head on and live on the edge, with no fear or worries! I want to change quite a few things about this world, too.

“What do you think when you see the person you like?”
Deep Purple – Never Before

“What do your parents think of you?”
INXS – Never tear us apart
My folks love me LOADS 😀 To the point that they don’t want to part with me. The additional factor here being the youngest kid at home!

“What will you dance to at your wedding?”
Fort Minor – Believe me
“I guess that this is where we’ve come to, If you dont want to, then you dont have to believe me. Just so you know now, you are on your own now,believe me!!” Probably this is what my parents would warn me about my married life :-S

“What will they play at your funeral?”
The Beatles – The Long and winding road
People are going to miss me a LOT, looks like it!

“What is your hobby/interest?”
Tom Petty – Into the great wide open
“Into the great wide open, under the sky so blue

Out in the great wide open, a rebel without a clue!”

Need I say more? Yeah I’ve always wanted to travel 😀

“What is your biggest secret?”
The Corrs – What I can do to make you love me?
As if I would actually be LOCO enough to divulge my biggest secret in such a public forum.

“What do you think of your friends?”
Guns and Roses – Sweet child of mine
It takes a lot of time, tests and life’s trials for me to consider a person my friend. Many seldom cross the line between acquaintance and friendship. And yeah, all my friends are my sweet children 😀 I dote on them all!

“What should you post this as?”
John Mayer – Only Heart
Yet another relevant answer. Damn you, you vile walkman phone!

I leave the choice to people on my blogroll or any visitor of TEALSPACE to continue with this tag 🙂

Save the Tiger!

Filed under: Uncategorized — Teal @ 9:51 am

Sign the online petition here at the WWF India site, and show that you care.  This just makes me wonder what is the bloody point in having a Dept for Forest Services if they are sleeping while these animals on the verge of extinction! X-(

And if I may add, I am going to get me a conservation band sometime this week.

You can get a WWF conservation band by ordering here.

Here is the Tiger’s anthem from the WWF Site, that I have put up here:

Tiger Anthem

My son asked me the other day
Do we have tigers only in the zoos
My teacher tells me the forests are gone
The deers are gone, wild animals are gone
The king of the junge now kills our cattle
Poachers on his trail
Now people live where once he lived
His skin is up for sale.

I said son, your teacher’s not fully right
Tigers are in danger, but still they survive
You can still see them in the wild
Sure I will take you there someday
The future of the tiger still hangs by a thread
But the battle is still not lost
We don’t wanna see tigers only in the zoos
We’ll save them at any cost

And its now or never, for the future of the tiger
It is time to decide if we wanna see the tigers in the wild
And he looked you in the eye, When you shot him, before he died
It is time that we ensure we gave the tigers a safe home.

Well son, the tiger needs your support
In you his future lies
If the tigers live, the forests live
And we need it for us to survive
I take the vow not to buy anything
That has tiger part
And I will try my best to gain all support
For the tiger with all my heart

And its now or never….

Something rather unique

Filed under: Uncategorized — Teal @ 5:49 pm

Somewhere in some nook and corner of my brain, my creative faculty has either caked up or melted and oozed out through my ears while I was sleeping. I have been trying to put something funny in here, reallllyyyyyyyyyyyy  but I really cant find the time or the patience to do! [not to mention lack of ideas]

My ever changing work timings make it virtually impossible for me to ever make a schedule I can stick to, not that i have ever stuck to one at all in my entire life. A lot of crazy things have been happening around me. More or less on the like of gujarati namkeen.

Have u tasted gujarati namkeen?

It will have a assattu-pissutu taste of spice, salt and sweetness all at one time.

Hmmm . . .

Anyways I met 2 researchers last evening who happened to be doing a project on researching the roots and customs of one sect of the Iyers, called the “vaathimaas”. [Non tam-bhram junta, may blink, but sorry about that] It was intresting to converse with these folks, although I did not have much to contribute material wise. Every one around there seemed to have known my grand dad though. He passed away on jan 22 this year, and condelences still continue to pour in.

Anyways 😦

Looking forward to the performance of U2 in India [If at all they are coming here]. Ppl with any information on the date and venue of the concert can mail me the same 😀

Stuck in a moment?

Filed under: Uncategorized — Teal @ 6:23 am

“I’m not afraid of anything in this world
There’s nothing you can throw at me that I haven’t already heard
I’m just trying to find a decent melody
A song that I can sing in my own company

I never thought you were a fool
But darling, look at you
You gotta stand up straight, carry your own weight
These tears are going nowhere, baby

You’ve got to get yourself together
You’ve got stuck in a moment and now you can’t get out of it
Don’t say that later will be better now you’re stuck in a moment
And you can’t get out of it

I will not forsake, the colours that you bring
But the nights you filled with fireworks
They left you with nothing
I am still enchanted by the light you brought to me
I still listen through your ears, and through your eyes I can see

And you are such a fool
To worry like you do
I know it’s tough, and you can never get enough
Of what you don’t really need now… my oh my

You’ve got to get yourself together
You’ve got stuck in a moment and now you can’t get out of it
Oh love look at you now
You’ve got yourself stuck in a moment and now you can’t get out of it

I was unconscious, half asleep
The water is warm till you discover how deep…
I wasn’t jumping… for me it was a fall
It’s a long way down to nothing at all

You’ve got to get yourself together
You’ve got stuck in a moment and now you can’t get out of it
Don’t say that later will be better now
You’re stuck in a moment and you can’t get out of it

And if the night runs over
And if the day won’t last
And if our way should falter
Along the stony pass

And if the night runs over
And if the day won’t last
And if your way should falter
Along the stony pass
It’s just a moment
This time will pass

Some fact about the song written by Bono, the greatest [yeah i know :-D] can be found

here     I hope to see U2 perform this atleast once. ONCE! dammit 😦

2008 – The year that will dawn all good and happiness!

Filed under: Uncategorized — Teal @ 3:21 pm

Hola Amigos!

This year has dawned as a radiant ray of hope for the months and years that lie ahead. And yeah I have taken a few resolutions, and for once I am planning to stick by them!

Nah not one of those game plans that one lays for the next 5 years .. after trying to plan and then inevitably hearing out popular choices and sticking by them for years … I have decided to take life head on! 😀

My new year’s celebration happened outside the safe boundaries of my home, with the blowing of candles and eating of yummy pastry! I hope the ill luck tat came before that died with 2007.  :-O

This year is going to be instrumental for the way my life will go in the future … a few vital decisions and careful thought is on track for 2008.

Yeah I know it has been 2 weeks since the new year started, but yes,I wanted to post something positive in the first post of this year.

Today happens to be Pongal/Sankranthi.

Wishing you all the happiness and prosperity in the universe!

May this year lay the foundations for the path ahead.

Carpe Diem!
