The Story so far...

April, 1998...

How it all started...
Him : "Why did u mend my notebook?"
Her : "Arey, can I let a colleague's notebook be like this?"

What went on...
Him : "I do not know what you think about me but...I love you."
Her : "I knew this was coming. I cannot get into a relationship right now."

September, 1999...

The first sign of a new beginning...
Him : "Do you love me?"
Her : "I cant say now. There are people around."
Him : "Okay, 1 for yes and 2 for no."
Her : "[gigle]I have a class at 1."
Him : "What ?"

May, 2000...

The beginning of a long wait...
Him : "I have to move out for studies."
Her : "But you will come back, right ?"
Him : "Yes, definitely. I love you a lot."

July, 2000...

His first mistake...he should have come back.
Her : "Give me your list when you are finished."
Him : "Umm..yes."

His second mistake. He should have been with her.
Him : "Hello, Girls Hostel connect karengey please."
Someone : "Kaun Paijey ? ".
Him : "[her name]".
Someone : "Thehro".
Her : "Hello, what took you so long?"
Him : I'm sorry. How are you ?"
Her : "Not fine. I am feeling lonely here."
Him : "I wish I could do something."

There was a card in the mail. It was from her. It said : "I LOVE U".

They should have been together...
Him : "Hello, how are you?"
Her : "I am alone here. And I miss you like anything."
Him : "I miss you too."

He screwed up...
Him : "Hello."
Her : "Where have you been? It has been so long since you called."
Him : "Sorry, I couldnt call. blah blah blah...Try to understand."
Her : "Okay, but I miss you a lot...please dont do this again."
Him : "Never."

But he did...again...
Her : "Where have you been?"
Him : "Sorry...blah blah blah"

And again...
Him : "blah blah blah"

September, 2003...

So finally...The mother of all mistakes...letting her go.
Her : "This is not working out."
Him : "Are you sure?"
Her : "Yes, you have left me with no choice."
Him : "Fine."

July, 2005...

I have no words for this...
Her : "Hello."
Him : "Hi, how are you?"
Her : "I am fine...but how could u not call?"
Him : "You made a choice."
Her : "There were reasons for that."
Him : "Im sorry, there is someone else now."
Her : "But what about me?"
Him : "Sorry."
Her : "[crying] I love you."
Him : [Hang up]

May, 2006...

All is well...
Him : "Hi, How are you?"
Her : "I am fine. How are you?"
Him : "I want to clear things between us."
Her : "Sure. Why not ? "
Him : "blah blah blah"
Her : "I love u."
Him : "I love u too."
Him : "Will you marry me?"
Her : "YES."

Unknown Date...

Him : "Hurry up".
Her : "Wait a sec...[guy-kid-name] is not wearing his shoes."
Him : "[girl-kid-name] ! Come on, lets go. We'll wait for them in the car."
Her : "Okay, all done. Lets go."
Him : "[car door shuts] You look lovely, I love you. [kiss]"
Her : "I love you too [smile], but we're getting late.
[car pulling out]

People might grow apart...sometimes both sides involved do, but the thing that keeps them going is love.
There was love, a lot of it. Thats what brought them together...and will keep them together for ever.

Why can't I be like a rock? Why is it that I am bothered by everything and everyone around me, by things that happen and by things that don't? Why can't I be like the air? Why do I have to care about every next person I come across? Why can't I just ignore? Why am I affected so easily by things? Why can't I be impervious? Why am I made like this? Why...Why...WHY???

Review Update...

Again its been sometime since I have posted some reviews. This time though, I will include some games as well. So here goes...

Category : Game
Name : Half Life 2: Aftermath
Cast : Gordon Freeman, Alyx Vance, Barney Calhoun...
My View : The game continues with the story of Half-life 2 and talks mainly about the characters at the end of HL2 and the events that occur as a result of their actions in HL2. As far as the game is concerned, it is on the same engine as HL2. So the graphics and gameplay are, undoubtedly, top-notch. The only downer is that there is no new aspect to gameplay. There is one sequence where Gordon and Alyx are in a basement of a building and hordes of zombies etc... come from all directions. And since it is dark, there is extensive use of the flashlight which, discharges very you end up in the dark with just voices and flashes of light. Interesting sequence but for me the only high-point of this episode. Hope the people at 'valve' can come up with something more creative in the next episode.

Category : Movie
Name : United 93
Cast : Christian Clemenson, Trish Gates, Gary Commock...
My View : With all the hype that has been surrounding the movies about 911, I was really looking forward to this one. And it paid off. The movie is, simply put, Amazing. The way it depicts the whole turn of events on September 11, 2001 is awesome. On one hand, it raises serious doubts about the military preparedness of the States. But, on the other hand, if the events depicted in the movie even honestly resemble what happenned on that day, Afganistan was totally justified. And I think it was too less...much more should have been done. All in all, a truly heart-rendering movie and a must watch.

Category : Movie
Name : X Men : The Last Stand
Cast : Patrick Stewart, Hugh Jackman, Sir Ian McKellen, Halle Berry, Famke Janssen...
My View : A typical comic-book adaptation. A lot of High-flying, Gravity-defying, Superhuman stuff. Typical X-Men. Nothing very surprising or interesting in this one. A good thrill for once. And I seriously doubt this being the last one in the series.

Category : Movie
Name : Being Cyrus
Cast : Saif Ali Khan, Nasseeruddin Shah, Dimple Kapadia, Boman Irani, Simone Singh...
My View : I did not know there were people in the Indian film industry capable of pulling off a film like this. The movie is damn good. With actors like Naseeruddin Shah and Dimple Kapadia...I would not settle for anything less. The storyline is very dramatic...with events unfolding every 15 minutes or so. Another good thing about the movie...No Songs...and for a bollywood production that is a very-very bold thing to do. Maybe this is the scene of things to come. Maybe. Well I hope so. We need more movies like this for sure.

Category : Movie
Name : Running Scared
Cast : Paul Walker, Cameron Bright, Vera Farmiga, Alex Neuberger, Ivana Milicevic...
My View : First of all, this movie is rated 'R'. So that tells a lot about the content. The movie is about a guy who is caught up in the underworld. But he wants to keep his back covered by keeping some 'pieces' of the crimes so that he has leverage later on. All hell breaks lose when one of the 'pieces' is lost from his possession and the movie follows him trying to retrieve this missing 'piece' before his gang-friends find out about it. The movie is extremely graphic, violent and uses abusive-language. But the plot-twists are well held together. A good watch, I suppose, just not in front of the kids...or even parents for that matter. ;)

Category : Movie
Name : Flight 93
Cast : Brennan Elliott, Ty Olsson, Jerry Wasserman...
My View : Told on similar lines to United 93. The movie focusses more on that particular flight and the lives of all people affected by that. A similar story told in a slightly different way. But I felt that the characterization was weaker in this one. Anyhow, a good watch.

More later.

Things are too messed up around here for my taste...I do not know how long I can exist here...There is way too much stuff that could affect me...I do not want to be like them...I want to stay 'me'.
