Im coming back to the stars......!!!

Im weirdly happy nowadays. Like just sitting on the office couch,doing nothing.Or drinking beer and smoking pot on my terrace all alone and looking at the stars and imagining stuffs. But still im suddenly missing so much. College, home, school, Calcutta, Park Street, Salt lake FD park, my broken computer chair et al.Is this what they call a change for the better. I went to a Binesh’s sister’s wedding reception last day. The food was good, the booze was good.Somewhere I saw in some Travel Channel that in a wedding,if the food is good,everything’s good. I think im growing thin again.I wanna grow fat. Somehow fat people are more cooler.And I wanna eat too.


I generally don’t read forwarded mails. And I don’t even know why I found this interesting.

Equality of Poverty:

The ant works hard in the withering heat all summer long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter. The grasshopper thinks the ant's a fool and laughs & dances & plays the summer away. Come winter, the shivering grasshopper calls a press conference and demands to know why the ant should be allowed to be warm and well fed while others are cold and starving.NDTV, BBC, CNN show up to provide pictures of the shivering grasshopper next to a video of the ant in his comfortable home with a table filled with food. The World is stunned by the sharp contrast. How can this be that this poor grasshopper is allowed to suffer so?Arundhati Roy stages a demonstration in front of the ant's house.Medha Patkar goes on a fast along with other grasshoppers demanding that grasshoppers be relocated to warmer climates during winter.Amnesty International and Koffi Annan criticize the Indian Government for not upholding the fundamental rights of the grasshopper.
The Internet is flooded with online petitions seeking support to the grasshopper (many promising Heaven and Everlasting Peace for prompt support as against the wrath of God for non-compliance).
Opposition MP's stage a walkout.
Left parties and Mamata Banerjee call for "Bharat Bandh" in West Bengal and demanding a Judicial Enquiry.
CPM in Kerala immediately passes a law preventing Ants from working hard in the heat so as to bring about “Equality of Poverty” among ants and grasshoppers.Lalu Prasad allocates one free coach to Grasshoppers on all Indian Railway Trains, aptly named as the 'Grasshopper Rath'.Finally, the Judicial Committee drafts the “Prevention of Terrorism Against Grasshoppers Act [POTAGA]", with effect from the beginning of the winter.Arjun Singh makes Special Reservation for Grass Hopper in educational Institutions & in Govt Services.The ant is fined for failing to comply with POTAGA and, having nothing left to pay his retroactive taxes, his home is confiscated by the Government and handed over to the grasshopper in a ceremony covered by NDTV.Arundhati Roy calls it "a triumph of justice". Lalu calls it 'Socialistic Justice'. CPM calls it the 'revolutionary resurgence of the downtrodden' Koffi Annan invites the grasshopper to address the UN General Assembly.Many years later...
The ant has since migrated to the US and set up a multi billion dollar company in Silicon Valley .
100s of grasshoppers still die of starvation despite reservation somewhere in India ..
And Indian politicians still complain of brain drain.”
