Ek Kathak Aur Uski Kathayen

We need to talk, honey!

I am aware I still have to conclude Cesium 133. For those of you late to join us in here, Part 1 and Part 2.

Also, considering the offline response I got for Agent R, I think I will work on making her the next James Bond!

However, the post is not about what I have to do, but about this letter. Another breakup - the letter of a lover who can't take it no more! Got it via a newsletter in the 17th! I'm sure, it can go down in history as classic literature!

In the author's own words,

I just can't continue with this relationship any longer. I know you say you'll fix things, that next time it'll go better - but that's what you said the last time - and the time before that. Each time I believed you. Well, not any longer.

And, then there is the final good bye!

So this is it: Good-bye. I know you'll do fine without me; you always have. I'm sure there'll be someone who'll find you to be cute and interesting. It just won't be me.

Some love stories are never meant to be!

    Its not about being drunk. C'mon, you know I don't drink alone... don't trust me? We need to talk, honey!

    No, but seriously, I was not drunk. Seriously, cross my heart and all. But seriously, I could do with a drink. For starters some old monk in my coffee and then let the alcohol flow. Get me scotch, rum, vodka, tequila... neat... Damn you Rhea... I want a drink right now!

    Bye bye Internet Explorer Hello Firefox !!!

    *raises eyebrows*
    *rolls the eyes*
    K, You still drunk eh? And whats with the alcohol... I did feel this iota of guilt only to realise, long before my comments you've been talking alcohol on Akshay's blog. Then i figured i'm not guilty if Pune police report an accident due to drunk driving.

    Akshay, I like the idea of inventing imaginary company. Will try that the next time the hubby's not giving me company. What makes the idea better is that I get to drink double the amount, mine and the imaginary fellow's.

    K, Come online some time. We need to talk, Honey!
    akshay, i switched to FireFox as well.
    btw - who is this guy trying to breakup. He seems pretty disturbed..poor guy.
    Agent R, Agent Smith here...
    ok..ok..i'll translate that for those who dont have the Enigma... it reads "Hi"

    Akshay,I've been off IE since I discovered one of the beta versions of firefox, sometime in April/May/June (When did you send that link in K??). In fact, I still haven't got myself the newly released version 1.0!

    K, you could reply to comments and like Smitha says, come online. Actually I get this feeling you're on, lurking around on some forum/website somewhere. Or then again, miracles can happen and someone who's never had the word 'studying' in her lexicon could have chanced upon it. Please prove me wrong, please.

    Smitha, that encrypted message looks more like random noise encrypted in alpha-numerals, than a "hi". None the less, you appear to be a lot into anagrams and now into encryption. Too much of Dan Brown eh?

    Well well well... thats a lot of comments I've got for a post in a really long time!

    1. I still need that drink, so you still got to feel guilty
    2. Link was during the viva's for my 6th sem. Figure out whan that was
    3. I was not lurking around online, just sitting on the chair next to the PC looking at it longingly and then looking at 'Telecommunication Switching Systems and Networks' by Thiagarajan Vishwanathan and then at my notes from college and swearing at the pen!

    Akshay, you're a great guy. After telling me about little sugar balls dipped in alcohol, now the imaginary company. BTW is something wrong with the 'v' of your keyboard?

    Smitha, have patience honey, we'll meet up online as soon as I decide to ditch staring at page 193 and at a stupid vodka joke in my notes.

    Hey hi everybody!
    Sugar balls dipped in alcohol? That's what I'm having for the past few days for my cough and fever etc. And for my wrist (K, remember that cabbage defficiency?). So I have 144 balls a day, and the corresp. amt. of alcohol too!
    Anyways K, you studying TM? enjoying?
    Read the acknowledgements written by Thiags.

    Danny, get well soon. No, i'm not studying per se, just opening any random page and staring at it. And, what part of the the acknowledgements do ya want me to read?

    Dan, get well soon! We miss the innovative mind of urs.

    K, u can invite me to ur booze party. I'll be the perfect partner...i dont drink, so u can enjoy the company and still get to drink the whole lot... and u would have someone to fill the glass when its empty!

    Rhea, that a very nice name u got there. name, one of many reasons i took to anagrams...u see my parents were nomenclature-challenged when they named me. And DaVinci is the only novel by Dan i have read. Check this spoof out...dave_barryand whats more...? there is this movie National Treasure that has the same kind of story line.

    And about the encrypted message, it is supposed to look like a noise to the untrained eye! Communication engineers K, Dan or R come to my rescue.

    Smitha thank you. I do have a nice name :-)
    Btw, I think you got a nice name too, so why do you think your parents were nomenclature challenged when they named you? But parents... well what can I say about their capabilities. I got a twin. And my parents named him Rohan. Now all by themselves these names are really nice, mine and his. But put them together, they sound like a nursery rhyme. And all through school people loved putting our names together like it was some kiddie rhyme and then go all sing-song with it!! Just maybe, they could ban parents from naming their own kids and let the kids decide their names, once they grow up!

    And as far as your encrypted message goes, I may not be a communication engineer, but I've been around plenty of them to know some communication (K, and my twin - two of the most crazy ones)! What do they have... some standards for sending the msg across so that it appears random noise to other receivers... I'm getting your point Smitha! But don't you think the pseudo-random series used for converting your signal to *noise* is a bit too long and possibly gets a lot of redundant data in there for a simple "Hi"!

    And K, when will you stop writing all your jokes in your notebooks based on vodka?


  • At 8:44 PM, November 23, 2004, Blogger Daneshia said…

    Thanx for your best wishes ppl! I have to get well soon! Anyways, for those who don't know, I have been updating my blog.
    So K, read the ack? Why are all TM related ppl spiritual? Not that I mind.

  • At 10:46 PM, November 23, 2004, Blogger Kathak - The Story Teller! said…

    Rhea, thats a lot more than I could ever expect from a structural engineer! I'm proud of you, really am. What with big words like 'pseudo-random series' and then 'noise' and 'redundant data'... Awesome girl, way to go ;-)

    Another thing, all my jokes in the notebook are not around vodka, just this one, and the one I was staring at yesterday :p

    Danny, I did read the ack. I know someone who this guy should meet up with, and they'l have a ball of a time together. BTW, who's the other TM guy who's spiritual... not our TM prof, to my best knowledge!

    Everyone, the encrypted msg was just supposed to be a funny, nothing else! Dont confuse me with all the 10 dollar words.
    Rhea, I bow to THEE. Obviously, you are qualified to write a book on Communications....and i would expect an mention in the acknowledgements!
    K, u were supposed to come to MY rescue...u renegade traitor.

    Smitha, I was just trying to add to the humor by being pseudo-serious. And the day I write that book, I'll get you to launch it, considering it was you who got me to write a book, after which I became a world famous author and then I got so much of royalty money that I could buy a third world country! Moreso, since I've heard your anagram is lucky for you, some of that luck might just rub of on me.

    Look out people of the world. Rhea is on way to fame - Internationally best selling author and the highest authority in the field of communications!!


  • At 6:32 PM, November 24, 2004, Blogger Kathak - The Story Teller! said…

    Smitha what did I do?? I didn't do anything! Cross my heart. I ddin't say anything against you. I didn't do anythign against you. I did nothing. I swear, I did nothing. Pray, tell me, what made you call me a traitor. No wait, not just traitor, a renegade traitor.

    Tell me, tell me, tell me.

    K, u didnt do anything.... thats the point. U were suppose to come to my rescue, instead u were all praise for Rhea...girl-friends come first huh? Anyways, go back to study.

    Rhea, u were right abt the lucky anagram. It got me to meet people like you!! What more could i have asked for huh?
