Retro .. many times in your life do ya get to remember the jolly 'ol ways..?

Be it indoor fun or outdoor,many of the things which we used to do for entertainment in our childhood is now out of fashion,rare or sometimes not heard at all by others...

For a normal guy like me it would be the retro tv/video games we used to play..with the nice catridges and all...and the cool and funky tv series of the late 90s.I had only DD,so only those who were in same condition would know..coz no self respecting person with cable connection would watch the shows in DD as we did :)

It was the DD metro movie that was aired every weekday at evenings to which I would credit my grasp of Hindi( and not on the strict or boring teachers). There were lots of strange shows, which I wonder how many would have watched(I mean the non-DDs),but we never minded or it stupid or weird.The names of many shows come running to my mind,but I am not going to make a list here,because that is not my intention.

The original reason why I wanted to write this post is the opening sequence of the Cartoon show SWAT KATS,which was aired in Cartoon Network.I just downloaded and heard it.It was my favourite show though we had cable connection for only 2 years..that too the last 2 yrs of schooling.I still get attracted to such retro series if any are aired,and bear a dislike to the kiddish japanese stuff flooding the channels.I do not say all Japanese anime are stupid,cause I myself am in love with 2-3 of them,but frankly I don't like the dubbed versions.Just think how weird it would be,if an English guy tries to voice any of our local would be pandemonium among the viewers... :P

The prize deeds of those days were: Hit a few sixes and take a few wickets everyday:Catch all episodes of all favourite toons and tv shows :Finish reading the latest comics and spread the story to all friends:Finish all levels or beat friends on the many famous tv games and boast about it for a whole year ;)....hehe and it was all carried out with such fervor...

gray and slow

Life is so gray and seems..

Thanks to the broken undersea cable,the internet is helping a lot in increasing the effects. Its tough to maintain a sane life in these hostile conditions.There is something seriously awful about me or maybe its the world.

My only companions now are some books,some ebooks,few old photographs and items that I had used in my past. Had plans to go out with a few friends, but most of them seem to have gone out of station.

Blah,in spite of all this,I do not intend to say that life is that boring,because it never can be ... ;)
coz i am already on the hunt for the next adventure...

Smiling Moon

It look so special...I have never seen such a sight in my life.
I noticed the smiling moon,on the clear western sky while going to the library after 6pm today.It was quite amazing and funny at same time.

I felt as if the sky itself was smiling at the world below.Don't know why the peculiar shape occurred. I never have seen two planets(Venus and Jupiter) so close by the moon,that too in crescent. This is a pretty sight occurring due to the alignment of these planets.Those who missed the view would have to wait for someone to upload images soon, or for a newspaper with an observant photographer.

What I noticed was that,not many noticed the peculiar sight on the clear sky.People were busy and had frowns on their face,obviously worried about the hectic lives. I felt the sky was saying "Smile Please" and I am sure the peculiar sight would have brought a smile on anyone's face.

Lets' take it as a message to ourselves.Keep Smiling and go about doing our jobs with a smile on our face...

Trust me to interpret anything with a useful message.. ;)
Got a photo taken by Cyriac and posted it(he admitted to not have taken it well)
