What the hell am I talking abt????

I had to visit Knowledge Village yesterday and its was weird to see groups of kids, sitting around, commenting on the passerby(But never me I am sure) and basically having a fun time. It gave me a severe heart ache....... tooooo many memories came flooding back.
Like my first day in college,
I was in a convent till my tenth and so the prospect of wearing jeans to college was in itself a great event. So i went, decked in brand new sneakers and jeans and t shirt........ ready to take on the world, which in my head consisted mostly of pamela and co. running towards me as in every baywatch episode. But reality, like maggi tomato ketchup, is different. What i did have is a few guys beat me up due to the fact that my sneakers were new(have still not figured out the connection, but that was the given reason). Actually a few of my school mates too got the same treatment from the 'Cobra gang' and that evening v had a council of war. So v formed a new gang called 'Vipers'. As anyone who has been in a campus knows, the basic duty of any gang is to harass as many people as possible and write their gang name on as many walls as possible. So v started off by writing our names on the walls and erasing off theirs. But, not the whole thing, just CO. So the next day when they came into college, they had become bra vinod, bra prasad and so on. The bruises from the beating they gave us after that is still scattered over my body.
But the crowning glory of that experience happened couple of months back....... I saw vinod of 'bra vinod' fame in Dubai. He was the security guard at an office that I went to for a meeting.HA!!

Thats what I love about life....... it more or less levels up.

Something that intrigues me is the fine line between fame and infamy. Hitler, cruel as he was, is one of the most famous names.... used even as an adjective nowadays.
Cruel people seem much less so after their death. If someone v hate dies....... the hate seems to die too.
This makes me feel that, v are actually programmed to b happy, to have fun and all that. So if happiness and fun for someone is hurting others, how is he or she wrong....... Ouch! I am trying to bite my own tail here.

So better stop now ....b4 i bite the whole thing off.

it really is an amazing feeling to see someone who ridiculed you in an unfortunate position later on in life. mr cool in highschool and mr fool later on in life. sad but nonetheless funny. does that make us innately cruel??? ohhh who gives a f***!!

Exactly.... I have no problems with being cruel, especially if i can meet all of the 'bra' gang scrubbing floors. Easier to kick them when they are down, literally:-)!!!!

Btw... Was just curious, did 'bra-Vinod' recognize 'Viper-U'(I dont know ur name!!)???

Feel bad for the guy, but the hero(Viper G.) does always have the last laugh.. doesn't he?? :P

PS: Btw.. thnx for dropping in by my blog. Kinda feel ashamed to see the awfully low no. of posts in my blog now. Anyways.. would try to improve on that one.

Of course, he recognised me.... would have been very hard for him not to, since i called him by name and commiserated abt his 'bad luck'.....

And the name is Trikkadeerimana
Rahul Trikkadeerimana...... doesnt have the same punch ...does it??
