social strata and its climb

being a person with the power of observation,it has come to my notice on how people group themselves.every1 has a is just like high school.back in the day of school,i was the happiest coz finally i wud get rid of the tagline given to me "geek" and start afresh in college...a new set of friends...a new batch of people! beginnings
well..what did i get? the same darn thing...its so simplified and so obvious that u can practically put them down into catagories...
a) the outright popular kids- they are the top of the strata,creme da la creme...or atleast thats what they think.they can make any1 do anything for them in the wink of an eye, a smile and in some selected cases,a whine.hipocracy,gossip,drama has big value in this clique.they are very selective of their friends and people they talk to.everybody hates to love them yet alwayz wishes they would b a part of them..even for a day..i wont deny a long time before i would die to b a part of their clique but then i became realistic...or maybe i just grew up too soon.

b)popularity through actions- now this sector has gained popularity not for their style or pizzaz like the previous group.this group has gained popularity through their talent or just the fact that they can talk to anybody and everybody.they normally tend to stick to a clique of 2's or 3's at most yet if you ask them a number of a random dhobi in 1 part of manipal,they will have it.
i wont deny i used to be like this.but this isnt a revelation from my side.its pretty obvious,its so easy to belong to this catagory,all u got to do is smile and act like nothings wrong with your me,ull b a magnet.*ting!! :D *

c)emo kids- yes..all colleges have them,even dental schools. the whole show of "no1 can understand me" works quite well in my class.the usual symptoms of limited friends,lonliness,dark clothing,attraction to music & writing and random outbursts. i guess a good date for this kind would b a movie night of the films "dark knight" or "underworld" to cheer em up !

d)the snoozies-this set of people have 2 diffrent etiologys to this manifestation
1) they are owls in the night.nocturnalism is the new trend or mostly coz they are addicted to their computer and cant find a way to turn off the switch and just sleep.
2) they are the decendants of kumbhkaran.any large amount of sleep is good,whether its in the day or in the night.
the signs show an increased tendency to sleep in class(even if its on the front desk!) and even after two warnings by the proffessor still have the courage to go back to sleep.

e) the nerds- yes how can we forget them! the mindless cramming and camping in the library are the most common symptoms.these people show a huge dependancy on coffee (specially the horrible tasting 1s in the library...the shittier...the better to keep awake) . a message that a new study material is circulating around,would make them reach the source in a split second.competition on who has the best notes is also 1 of their signs.bloodshot eyes at the end of each day closing near the exam is also another.

f)the pet owners- those who seek friendship and gratification in a race beyond humans and plus the attention it brings when som1 comes over and says " aww ur pet is so cute!!! ", a good conversation starter with the ladies if the guys own a dog/cat/fish/turtle etc. (btw..did i mention i own a turtle too??? :P)

g) people with weight issues-now this can be subdivided into 2 catagories again
1) people who think they have gained since 1st yr - yes,i know we were supermodels back in the day and watching overselves in the mirror has become a difficult task to perform daily.this sector has joined the gym after 4 years of intense compulsive eating due to exam stress,bf stress,shit manipal food stress, home sickness stress etc.i am proud to say that 90% have shown improvement and now belong to wat i call the healthy weight catagory.
2) people who have lost wt since 1st yr- they werent supermodels to start with.they werent even noticed to start with.yet,they took up the challenge and today are 1 of the most admired and most noticed.yet i may like to add that starvation and coffee diets wasnt the right way to do it.

now here is my revelation.i am amongst all. i am popular,a nerd,wt issues,a pet owner,a bit emo and a snoozer.its so easy to catagorize people under diffrent catagories yet its wrong to put a label on anybody.all of us have a bit of every trait in us in diffrent proportions.i have no right to judge people coz i dont want to be judged myself. people who stick to their cliques only do so coz they feel safety in the familarities it brings.but that doesnt mean that a popular kid cant draw or an emo kid cant sleep in class...

so this is the end of my valuable lesson my friends, dont judge!

young poet

never imagined i would stumble accross this poem.i thought it was lost with time.i wrote this when i was in 10th std,which wud make me 15 years old.gosh! i was such a hopeless romantic!
haha.never knew how that much of optamism could turn into pessimism over time and settle down to realism. well here it goes!

emotional lover

i am an emotional lover,

you could be,the world could be

rarer the species we are

more promising than any1 by far

love takes another turn with us

would you love me, from dawn to dusk?

i am an emotional lover,

emotions are wound,when we are around

non like the oceans beauty seen so far

we may b ugly,but we love u,we are known for it all

true,i heard love is blind

now do u like me,would u b so kind?

i am an emotional lover.

who is this i see,is it thee?

you came,i made no noise

you whispered in my ear with poise

tears stroll down my eyes

why do u tell me,nothin but lies?

i am an emotional lover,

how to prove to u,a daunting task

but i still love you.

you passed,after whisper,never to look back

what makes u look at her,the qualities i lack?

be true,for goodness sake

to whoever you choose,dont b a fake.

i am an emotional lover.

you never recognized me,never will thee

to whom u love is an innocent glass doll

shell break,when shell learn the truth at all

to me your Daniel,eyes so blue by time

but i love u,i WILL you were mine

i am an emotional lover

i cried whole night,you never to move from my sight.

now ill end my woeful story

about a girl who thought and dram

that she was special,an emotional lover

My heart's road

its been forever since i wrote my last blog post.each reason being very diffrent from the next. yet a friend told me to write,despite what people say.a lot has happened over this past year.we claim to have changed though in the end we all know we never change.we still are the same person we are beneath.

our lifes road has always been a matter of discussion. most of us are lucky to go further than others.for some, its tragically cut short.i never thought it would matter who walks amongst us on our road as long as we have company to get through the day,despite different destinations.

so what will you do,when u realize that the person u walked with is not a part of the same journey any more? would you feel happy...good riddence? or feel empty? or if your 1 of the unlucky undecisive ones...feel both?

"my heart bleeds
you leaving me there,
all alone,on the street
with no concern or care,
leaving me alone,standing in the heat.

'for whom are you waiting for?'
the passers by asked
'they are late,1 will come,or more'
standing sadly,the truth i masked.

my heart bleeds
for you show no remorse,
in your pitiful deed
leaving me alone,on lifes course."

a friend once told me "dont make a space in your heart for somebody who doesnt wanna b in it"
sounds smart?

so what will you do? choose to live a non-existant life and hope that one day,in our junction through life,we find some1? OR
we make our future,follow a path which is easy and less-lonely,yet in the process loose yourself coz u lost a part of your identity in the way?

robert frost had his issues on the road less issue is do we really miss out on an experiance or save us from the bad experiances of the road unknown.

what would you have done?
