Updates and Tag

Oh well my last post was idiotic, but do not really take that a reason for my absence, I do not believe in suicides personally.
Yes I have been on a vacation and it was real nice, but why am I irregular and not catching up with you all, I really cant help the power cuts and the BSNL internet connection. However, I'll soon be back hopefully and do lemme know whats up with you guys :)

Raisa tagged me to take up this quiz on FB which is quite nice. So i took it up.

Your view on yourself:
You are down-to-earth and people like you because you are so straightforward. You are an efficient problem solver because you will listen to both sides of an argument before making a decision that usually appeals to both parties.
(ahaaann.. that is almost correct)

The type of girlfriend/boyfriend you are looking for:
You like serious, smart and determined people. You don't judge a book by its cover, so good-looking people aren't necessarily your style. This makes you an attractive person in many people's eyes. hehe..

Your readiness to commit to a relationship:
You prefer to get to know a person very well before deciding whether you will commit to the relationship.
(they call me the runaway bride)

The seriousness of your love:
You like to flirt and behave seductively. The opposite sex finds this very attractive, and that's why you'll always have admirers hanging off your arms. But how serious are you about choosing someone to be in a relationship with?
(they dint know it?)

Your views on education:
Education is very important in life. You want to study hard and learn as much as you can. (absolutely)

The right job for you:
You're a practical person and will choose a secure job with a steady income. Knowing what you like to do is important. Find a regular job doing just that and you'll be set for life.
(no comments)

How do you view success:
You are confident that you will be successful in your chosen career and nothing will stop you from trying.

What are you most afraid of:
You are afraid of things that you cannot control. Sometimes you show your anger to cover up how you feel.
blush blush

Who is your true self:
You are full of energy and confidence. You are unpredictable, with moods changing as quickly as an ocean. You might occasionally be calm and still, but never for long.
*battling eyelashes*

You are all free to take up :)

Calling all Online Friends

Gmail and Gtalk are my lifeline these days. I do have an account for Yahoo, but I use it very occasionally.
Last night, just out of the blues I logged into my another long abandoned yahoo messenger account. It had been hacked and all, so i had to abandon it. I haven't logged into that account for ages. I logged into my mail box as well expecting yahoo to had delete it for non usage, but to my surprise, it was intact, but of course flooded with spam mails. I was just surfing through it when I found an email from a friend. There were some pictures attached. It was from Rick, an online friend. He was an Aussie.

And it all came back to me.

I was fresh into the college that was when I had my internet connection at home. Yahoo chats had been so in those days, I too used to pass a considerable time on them.. I would have bumped into him in some Chat rooms, I cant even remember the details. It has been so long.

Very calm, down to earth sort of person he was, as much as I remember. He was a photographer, located at Sydney, almost my age, I was 18 then. He lived alone with a friend who was his best friend's sister. Her name was Nancy. He use to tell me a lot about Nancy. She was under depression, unfortunately her mother and brother who happened to be Rick's best friend had been inside the WTC on 9/11. I remember he told me that when he was very drunk and could not even remember he told me about it the very next day.

His dad was a farmer living somewhere in the country side nearby and his mom lived in New York with his younger brother. He frequented to NY lot of times to see them.

When my id got hacked, I lost contact with him. He was there on Orkut, but anyhow, he deleted his profile. At times, when I read mails like how people found their long lost friends and relatives on social networking sites, I do search for him, but no luck yet. :)

I dont know why am I writing this, but since I recalled that friend of mine who is not in contact any more, and I am unable to locate him, I just want to let him know that he is being missed.

Now your turn to tell me about any such online friend of yours outside of the blogging world. You may or may not be in contact with them, but you still remember them and want them to know you do.

What are you going to chose?

Of late, I have come across a relatively new concept of Marriage of Convenience.

We are all aware of Love Marriages and Arranged Marriages.

In Love Marriages, two people who fall for each other and they get married, whether their folks agree or dont and at times finally agree, many love stories dont end as marriages and many end as marriages begin.

In Arranged marriage on the other hand, folks fix you up with a family they think is suitable, your prospective partner is chosen by them testing on every aspect. At times you immediately fall in love with your fiance, in other cases, love doesn't come even after years of marriage and some marriages break too.

But this concept is marriage of convenience. Love is nowhere in the scene. You are nice friends with the other person and you are both aware of each others aspirations and desires. And you decide to get married. This way, you are in a relationship for the sake of your families, friends and yourself.

I have come across many reasons to be such a relationship. one is when you are great friends, both single and unable to find a suitable match for yourself. And you make a pact that till certain age, if you still remain single, you will marry each other. Since you have been friends for years, you know the other person well and can be dependent on the other one too. sometimes this is also referred to as back-up husband/ wife.

Another is, when you are friends, and you both have high aspirations in life- career wise, and still dont want to get married and your folks are obsessed with the idea of getting you married, you get married to each other. this way you shut their mouths, pretend to be happily married and concentrate on your career without any pressure from your better half.

Another reason, as we all watched in the movie- Fashion. Mugdha Godsay- a struggling model marries Sameer Soni- a Gay Fashion designer who doesn't want his homosexuality come out in public.

Another reason, when you had a relationship, but under some circumstances, you could not end up together, now, you are still unable to get over that relationship but still you get married for the sake of your folks and even yourself, without any obligations towards your better half.

Another reason is when you know the other person can give you ample breathing space and can let you live the way you want to, you decide to get married and this way you don't lose your freedom and can have a relationship of your own convenience.

So what are you going to chose?
