suteki da ne

This is a really beautiful song from "Final Fantasy X".
Am not really a FF fanatic but yep am a fan.

suteki da ne

Kaze ga yoseta kotoba ni
Oyoida kokoro
Kumo ga hakobu ashita ni
Hazunda koe

Tsuki ga yureru kagami ni
Furueta kokoro
Hoshi ga nagare, koboreta
Yawarakai namida

Suteki da ne
Futari te o tori aruketa nara
Ikitai yo
Kimi no machi, ie, ude no naka

Sono mune
Karada azuke
Yoi ni magire
Yume miru

Kaze wa tomari; kotoba wa
Yasashii maboroshi
Kumo wa yabure; ashita wa
Tooku no koe

Tsuki ga nijimu kagami o
Nagareta kokoro
Hoshi ga yurete, koboreta
Kakusenai namida

Suteki da ne
Futari te o tori aruketa nara
Ikitai yo
Kimi no machi, ie, ude no naka

Sono kao
Sotto furete
Asa ni tokeru
Yume miru

The translation for the song.
"suteki da ne" means "isnt it beautiful"

My heart was swimming
In words gathered by the wind
My voice bounded
Into a cloud-carried tomorrow

My heart trembled
In the moon-swayed mirror
Soft tears
Spilled with a stream of stars

Isn't it beautiful
If we could walk, hand in hand
I'd want to go
To your town, your home, in your arms

I dream of being
Against your chest
My body in your keeping
Disappearing into the evening

Words halted by wind are
A gentle illusion
A tomorrow torn by clouds is
The voice of a distant place

My heart that had been
In a moon-blurred mirror that flowed
Those stars that trembled and spilled
Cannot hide my tears

Isn't it beautiful
If we could walk, hand in hand
I'd want to go
To your town, your home, in your arms

My dream of
Your face
That I softly touch
Melts in the morning

who or what is maithili ?

let's see what a few idle benchers in infosys think... this
is a thread.. read it in order..

himanshudas : Who or what is Maithili, in context of
Indian literature?

yogesh : Maithili is a language spoken in central bihar.
It has its own literature.It has its root in the old kingdom
of that area.It is similar to Hindi.

subhashis : Maithili brahmins are known for their gastronome
qualities !!!

pranav : Maithili is a language which derives it's name from the
region in Bihar where it is spoken, the old kingdom of Mithla.
There is a reference to the area even in Ramayana- Janak
( Father of Sita) was king of Mithla and has been referred to as
MithlaNaresh at many places in RamCharitraManas
- therefore Sita was also called Maithili.

vikas : Recently one Congress leader, in defense of Sonia,
quoted that Sita was also a foreigner because Janakpuri is in

sudha : God Shiva is also a foreigner because
Mt.Kailash is in China. Buddha was also a foreigner because
Lumbini(?) is in Nepal. So was Guru Nanak, because Talwandi is
in Pakistan. So was Porus. So was Gandhari.....:)

ashok : And what about Home minister Advani & Noble Prize
winner Economics Dr. Amartya Sen???

vishnoor : Rama was an aryan ;
Germans claim to be aryans so Rama was a German.Hail Rama....

kandelwalh : the argument is wrong.the conclusion is fallacious

vishnoor : After defeating ravana .... Sri Rama flew back in
Ravana's pushpak vimana & This is what the Mordern Lufthansa is .
It is the modern version of the older pushpaka vimana.
The pushpak vimana was "driven" by hansa or swans....
The insignia of Lufthansa is also a swan...
This further proves Sri Rama was a German Hail Rama ....

anil : No, on the contrary it proves that Ravan was a German
since it was he who owned the Pushpak Viman. The passengers
could belong to any country.

raghavendra : Say this to the DMK and they're gonna kick u!!
according to them ravan was a dravidian and was attacked by ram
as ram was an aryan.So if ram was a german, and assuming he was a
'hitlerite 'aryan, then ravan must have been a jew!!!

amajumdar : Might be Russians too.. that explains why MK's son
is called STALIN.

anil : So, at present we are at a point where MK's son
is a Russian, implying MK is a Russian. MK is a ardent
follower of Ravan who is a German Jew. Looks like the
german govt running Karnataka (see our previous discussions
for a proof of it) is conniving with the Russian govt at Tamilnadu
(who support German) to fight the Italian Govts reps at 10
Janpath road. Some heavy international politics we
have going on here.Wat's d'ya say man!!

ashok : According to maxmuller, Aryans came from
Middle East.According to Bal Gangadhar Tilak, Antarctica was
the home place of Aryans. And Swami Dayanand Saraswati says
Aryans were originally from India b'coz the place "saptsandhav"
that is described many times in their book is nothing but Doab
region between Ganga & Jamuna. And One theory according
Bhagwandas is that Aryans were originally from India then they
went to middle east and after some time they returned
back to India.So there are different theories about the origin of
Aryans but recent belief is that only India was their native-land.

yeshwant : OH BOY!! WHO ARE WE?

anil : Let the 'intellectuals' decide... you will know who you
are soon enough.

dinni : It just occured that a better subject would have
been "CRICKET" but this &nbs nbsp; one stopped ...."Are our
cricketers Aryans/Germans ?" So we got to solve this one !

anil : Germans don't play cricket. So cricketers can't be
germans. QED

kedar : Indians invented the decimal system. Ravan(Jew) had
ten heads, Ram's father(aryan + German)had ten chariots
(Dash-rath) etc.Thus , the base is 10. There fore they are all

anil : How logical!! Now I could easily prove that even
Africans are Aryans. They have 10 fingers- so they are aryans.
They have 10 toes on their feet - so they are aryans. Thanks for
proving that all are aryans.

raghavendra : Then even monkeys are aryans!!!!!!(I think
they too have 10 fingers). That's what ramayan says. So all
vanars were also aryans!!!

ashok : No, Only the native of Haryana are are aryans b'coz
U just remove the 'H' in Haryana so it becomes aryana.Agreed
or not????

raghavendra : Let me get it clear.Are u suggesting that
all people in haryana are monkeys?????

anand: B'cas only teachers (arya's) are aryans. So all software
engr's are dravidians.

dhruva : Your theory only proves that Software engineers
are not aryans.Therefore they can be any thing other than aryans
and not only dravidians.

anand : My theory is first step to identify software engrs.I'm
more interested in showing that software engrs are not monkeys
(bcas they are not aryans) which my house owner believes!!!

anil : We sit before the monitor staring into the pixels, making
faces the whole day like monkeys. And you claim that you are not
in this monkey business? Beats me!!

pulp fiction

(Cleaning their bloody hands.)
Jules: "What the fuck did you just do to this towel?"
Vincent: "I was just dryin' my hands."
Jules: "You're supposed to wash 'em first."
Vincent: "You watched me wash 'em."
Jules: "I watched you get 'em wet."
Vincent: "I washed 'em. This stuff's real hard to get off. Maybe if he had some Lava, I coulda done a better job."
Jules: "I used the same soap you did and when I dried my hands, the towel didn't look like no fuckin' maxi-pad."

Butch: "You okay?"
Marcellus: "No. I'm pretty fuckin' far from okay."

(Jules shoots the guy on the couch during Brett's interrogation)
Jules: "Oh, I'm sorry. Did I break your concentration?"

Marcellus: "No one needs to know about this except you, me and Mr.-soon-to-be-living-the-rest-of-his-short-ass-life-in-agonizing-pain-rapist here."

Jimmie: "Now let me ask you a question, Jules. When you drove in here, did you notice a sign out in front that said, "Dead nigger storage"?"
Jules: "Jimmie..."
Jimmie: "Answer the question! Did you see a sign out in front of my house that said "Dead nigger storage"?"
Jules: "Naw man, I didn't."
Jimmie: "You know why you didn't see that sign?"
Jules: "Why?"
Jimmie: "'Cause storin' dead niggers ain't my fuckin' business!"

Jules: Whether or not what we experienced was an According to Hoyle miracle is insignificant. What is significant is that I felt the touch of God. God got involved.

Esmeralda: What is your name?
Butch: Butch.
Esmeralda: What does it mean?
Butch: I'm American, honey. Our names don't mean shit.

Maynard: Nobody kills anybody in my place of business except me or Zed.

Jules: If my answers frighten you then you should cease asking scary questions.

Vincent: Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go home and have a heart attack.

Butch: I'll be back before you can say Blueberry pie.
Fabienne: Blueberry pie.
Butch: OK, maybe not that fast...

[ Jules before he kills anyone ]
The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the Valley of Darkness; for he is truly his brother's keeper, and the finder of lost children. And, I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers! And, you will know my name is The Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee!

rainy monday

amplifying the monday blues is the rain
rainy days and mondays always bring no gain

talkin' to myself and feelin' old
sometimes I'd like to quit
nothing ever seems to fit
hangin' around
nothing to do but frown
rainy days and mondays always get me down

what I've got they used to call the blues
nothin' is really wrong
feelin' like I don't belong
walkin' around
some kind of lonely clown
rainy days and mondays always get me down

what I feel has come and gone before
no need to talk it out
we know what it's all about
hangin' around
nothing to do but frown
rainy days and mondays always get me down

The boy knew a lot of people in the city. That was what made
traveling appeal to him.He always made new friends, and he
didn't need to spend all of his time with them. When
someone sees the same people every day, as had happened
with him at the seminary, they wind up becoming a part of
that person's life. And then they want the person to change.
If someone isn't what others want them to be, the others
become angry. Everyone seems to have a clear idea of how
other people should lead their lives, but none about his or
her own.

"They're not my sheep anymore," he said to himself,
without nostalgia."They must be used to their new shepherd,
and have probably already forgotten me. That's good.
Creatures like the sheep, that are used to traveling, know
about moving on."

He thought of the merchant's daughter, and was sure that
she had probably married. Perhaps to a baker, or to another
shepherd whocould read and could tell her exciting stories.
after all, he probably wasn't the only one. But he was excited
at his intuitive understanding of the camel driver's comment:
maybe he was also learning the universal language that deals
with the past and the present of all people. "Hunches,"
his mother used to call them. The boy was beginning to
understand that intuition is really a sudden immersion of the
soul into the universal current of life, where the histories of
all people are connected, and we are able to know everything,
because it's all written there.

"Maktub," the boy said, remembering the crystal merchant.

Big J

three big J's of the 60's
jim morrison
jimi hendrix
janis joplin

all died of heroin overdose in the same year.

a woman who could bellow and cry and stamp and then turn
around and go achingly tender.think of that sweaty and
sometimes porcine face. of the bad complexion.of the tangled
hair. of the mouth eating the microphone. of the pink
feather boas. of the layers of bracelets. of the tattoos.
can someone so ugly even dream of making it in today's
world ? today's world of beyonce,J Lo and blah blah.
yeah but.. would there by a J Lo CD in any store 30 years
from now ?.
according to the family members who control her estate,
janis' record sales have increased every year for the last decade.
long live janis' wild hillbilly cackle.

my friends and other monkeys

monkeys are adorable creatures,but it is not reasonable to
expect that you will never be bitten by any monkey. The
relatively docile youngster eventually turns from
play-aggression to the serious aggression of an adult.
The higher it climbs,the more you see of its back.The day,
the monkey is destined to die,all the trees get slippery.
and all of 'em clockwork oranges.

"A life spent making mistakes is not only more honourable,
but more useful than a life spent doing nothing."

volitional and are the portals to discovery."

vogon poetry

vogon poetry is ( poetry written by vogons,Hitch hiker's
guide to the galaxy ) regarded as the third worst thing in the
universe.during a recitation by their poetmaster Grunthos
the Flatulent of his poem "ode to a small lump of green putty
i found in my armpit one midsummer morning" four of his
audience died of internal haemorrhaging and the president
of the mid-galactic arts knobbling council survived only by
gnawing one of his own legs off. Grunthos was reported to
have been "disappointed" by the poem's reception, and was
about to embark on a reading of his 12-book epic entitled
"my favourite bathtime gurgles" when his own major
intestine, in a desperate attempt to save humanity, leapt
straight up through his neck and throttled his brain.
Here is some of poetry from Captain Prostetnic Vogon Jeltz


Oh freddled gruntbuggly,
Thy micturations are to me
As plurdled gabbleblotchits
On a lurgid bee.
Groop, I implore thee, my foonting turlingdromes
And hooptiously drangle me
with crinkly bindlewurdles,
Or I will rend thee in the gobberwarts with my blurglecruncheon
See if I don't.


vintery, mintery, cutery, corn,
apple seed and apple thorn,
wire, briar, limber lock,
three geese in a flock.
one flew east,
and one flew west,
and one flew over the cuckoo's nest.

fool in the rain

Well there's a light in your eye that keeps shining
Like a star that can't wait for the night
I hate to think I've been blinded baby
Why can't I see you tonight?

And the warmth of your smile starts a-burnin'
And the thrill of your touch gives me fright
And I'm shaking so much, really yearning
Why don't you show up, make it all right?
Yeah, it's all right.

And if you promised you'd love so completely
and you said you would always be true
You swore that you would never leave me, baby:
What ever happened to you?

And you thought it was only in movies
As you wish all your dreams would come true
It ain't the first time believe me, baby
I'm standin here feeling blue
Yeah I'm blue

Now I will stand in the rain on the corner
I'll watch the people go shuffling downtown
Another ten minutes no longer
And then I'm turning around

The clock on the wall's moving slower
My heart it sinks to the ground
And the storm that I thought would blow over
Clouds the light of the love that I found

Now my body is starting to quiver
And the palms of my hands getting wet
I've got no reason to doubt you baby,
It's all a terrible mess

I'll run in the rain till I'm breathless
When I'm breathless I'll run till I drop, hey
The thoughts of a fool's kind of careless
I'm just a fool waiting on the wrong block, oh yeah
Light of the love that I found...
