I have no finger nails left due to all the anxious nail biting.

 I think I have this power of embarassing myself. The one time i saw Brad Pitt I actually tried running across security. The funny part is that I don't even like him. I mean he used to be all cool when he was married to Jennifer Aniston, but nothing else.

However, I am a huge fan of the Backstreet Boys. A single song of their's can take me back to my pre-teens and teeny bopper days. I can proudly say I am not one of those people who owned BSB slam books in school and now claim that they only listened to classic rock back then :P

Well as any true BSB fan would I liked their page on facebook. And to my surprise there are all these corny comments on their status updates. Reading these comments made me feel silly and 11 again. And honestly if i ever have the opportunity to see the boys I will proudly embarass myself again. I really hope that day comes soon and I am not old enough to drool over pop icons. Anyway I will always be that 11 year old girl when i hear them.

A certain somebody is back in town. Aaargh. I had almost got over him and now I dunno wat to do. He wants to meet up but doesn't specify a place and time so I keep on telling him that I am busy, when actually I am just getting some reading done at home or watching TV. I really want this to stop messing up my head. I cannot like a guy who isnt in the country for almost 10 months a year.

I just finished reading "Not Without My Daughter" by Betty Mahmoody. It is a true story about a lady held hostage in Iran against her wishes with her daughter by her husband and his family, The violence, emotional harassment and misery she went through is something that made me see the whole of humanity differently. Those whom we are really close to are capable of hurting us the most. Her attempts at escape and her determination to attain freedom for her daughter left me overwhelmed with despair, sadness, love and joy all at the same time. While reading the book I almost felt a sense of helplessness, however "Where there is a Will, There is Way", A strong will can help us attain a million things that might seem impossible.

Thank you Betty for writing this book, for sharing your story. You are an extraordinary individual. God probably made you endure those hardships so that you could warn several women.

When our nation is facing a food crisis and umpteen tons of wheat is locked in warehouses rotting its a little appaling .  What's even more disgusting is that this food is being kept there to be sold for manufacturing alcohol rather than being made available to people at affordable prices. What is our government up to. Inflation is killing those at the bottom of the pyramid and nobody seems to be caring about it between the CWgames scam and putting the opposition down. I am not someone who cares about politics, but the hypocrisy completely disgusts me. N these are the people we vote for, I picked the deep blue see rather than the devil.

Seriously, I do not believe that the government of India's growth and development policy is for everyone. N what happened in Dantewada may be due to their own follies. Probably considering minorities n rural folks won't hurt.

I am not a leftist, maoist, etc. However I do feel that the government has failed to provide. May be a change in ideology could help.

I am really disappointed with our civil system. There is this sky walk outside Ghatkopar Railway Station and these bunch of goons hang out there and eve tease women. Well I take the skywalk and want to continue doing that without being hassled. So I complained to the cops. They arrive after 30 minutes by that time these losers have fled. And I realise that I cannot lodge a complaint as I do not know the names of these people. this is bloody stupid. Can't they make a note that this is a spot for eve teasing and do something about it. The cops actually told me, to not take the sky walk henceforth. And he asked me what to do... to which i told him that he is the cop how am i supposed to know.

Gosh i really hate the ideology that men possess. My body and that of other women is not yours to comment on.
