The Belated Thank You

"It's about sex, love, relationships, careers, a time in your life when everything's possible. And it's about friendship because when you're single and in the city, your friends are your family."
— The original treatment used to pitch FRIENDS to NBC.

When the laughter has died down,
The applause has ceased,
And times have become a little harsh,

There still remain a few people.

And they do the most random things.
Like actually throwing a ‘surprise’ party for you just because your birthday fell in the vacations,
Making sure that you make them laugh, however bad things may be, 
And they make the most lame people write such senti stuff.

So that when you return back to form,
you always know where you belong.

Friendship. Damn weird I tell you......! 

Thanks guys.

(well, better late than never!)

Look Who's Back!

The last post on Neilgiri was made on 4th of August this year (i.e. 3 months ago). And than I disappeared. Or rather, I got whisked away by the roller coaster ride called Sem III. It was more demanding than anything I have done before. And as Sem III hurtles towards it's end, here is the comeback.

Shhh! Its not loud like the arrival. No guns blazing, no trumpets flairing and no bold proclamations from the jaws of the future.
Its a quiet re-entry to a stage that has seen a few changes since I was here last. For one, Abstract Confusion is gone. (The Weird Child has graduated to bigger things now). Rajnikant happened. (Or rather, happen Rajnikanted). Maadhyam 2011 is out and rolling. And the cool new 'Stats' feature makes it very easy to monitor the progress of your own blog. 

And yes, I moved on. Or rather, moved up.

Thank God Neilgiri did not!

Here is to a round 3 full of new ideas, rookie advertising and sensible nonsense.

Welcome back to me.  :)
