Umbo and some Mumbo Jumbo.


28 DEC 2011
I tossed and turned uneasily. I wriggled out of the bedspread whilst my stomach gave an ominous rumble.  I couldn’t stand it any longer. I clambered out of bed and walked to my dad’s room in a daze. I hesitated for a second; he hadn’t been sleeping well for the past few days thanks to his sore throat. But then, courtesy be damned, I was dying (I was convinced) I barged in and shouted hoarsely and heard a startled response. Suddenly I couldn’t see anymore. Although he’d switched on the light, my sight was dimming. I yelled something and collapsed and fell on the bed. Dad forced sugar down my throat and slowly, very slowly I sensed my surroundings and I was conscious again.

HELLO!
It’s a New Year! So 364 fresh days ahead. Ah, I feel all optimistic about the year ahead..

Listening to Tee Amo, I’m reminded of Delhi and the awesome time I had.

Every song I hear is associated with some memory, some recollection of the past.

Eg: Jalwa. I’m reminded of Rachana. Because she happened to tell me the plot of Fashion. And ‘Rachana’ reminds me of Mar Jawa, because at one point, it was her favourite song.

Here’s another: Saathiya. Travelling to Coorg when I was in 3rd or 4th. That’s when I first heard the song; as we made our way through hairpin bends and rain, to enter the coffee county…

And another: JeeyeinKyun: Deeksha. Specifically those rainy days when It would drizzle for most part of the 14-km drive to college.

Yet another: 7 things: 8th standard, when I believed (foolishly, no doubt) I could relate to the basic point of the song, while In reality, I was just disappointed over nothing.

And the last: YehjoDesh from Swades: You can laugh, but this song brings tears to my  eyes. I just don’t get why! Every time I hear this one, something in Shankar Mahadevan’s voice, accentuated with soothing background music leaves me in tears.

Physics, in my opinion, is very mechanical (but to many, Mechanics is an attractive aspect). Why can’t we have more Chem and Math along with Bio. It’s so full of life and basically so practical! I mean, it’s all happening in either a micro or macro scale and isn’t that more alluring than finding out the product of velocity and mass of some particle you set in motion. Take atomic structure, it’s way better. And Bio, of course, is all *nice* (but that doesn’t mean I can remember everything.)

I'm doing Organic and I'm lovin' it! Only I know nothing about the resonance structures and aromaticity (yet). The other day I went to Sapna looking for OP Tandon (Bible for Organic) but came back with Resnick and Halliday (as yet another attempt to fall in lou with Physics)

Last 3-4 days have been Terrible. I'm been sleeping way too much. Damn, its the cold mornings and at night I fall asleep over the books in spite of Strong Coffee!!! Bad. I shall change that tonight.




*In case you were wondering, Umbo is the raised part of the head of a freshwater mussel. (Bio Lab)
