FRIENDS Again...

Well yesterday I reached home little late owing to the heavy traffic jam on the way and as always as soon as I reached home I switched on the TV to watch FRIENDS. I could not make out which season they are playing but there were few incidents in the two episodes that are worth mentioning (It was season 4, Episode 5-6). It involves the other character apart from the six of them , who I feel is also an eternal part of the series. The character is Gunther.

Well in the first episode , the incident was as follows:

Phoebe catches cold and because of that her voice becomes little harsh but she thinks that adds a peculiarity to her Singing. But soon she gets well but Monica catches it, so she does all the weird stuffs to get it back so that she can again sing like when she had cold. But unfortunately despite all her weird efforts she fails to catch cold. Then at the coffee house, just when Gunther was serving coffee , he sneezes. Seeing this Phoebe asks him to kiss so that she can catch the cold and before Gunther could react, she kisses him.

Now the funny part starts , at the end of the episode when they are running the credits, Gunther approaches Rachel and following is the conversation that goes.


Rachel: Yeah.

Gunther: I don't know if you heard about what happened between me and Phoebe the other day_

Rachel: No!

Gunther: Well, we kissed. I-I-I didn't initiate the kiss, but-but I also didn't stop it, and I've been feeling guilty.

Rachel: (confused) Okay.

Gunther: So umm, are we cool?

Rachel: (really confused) Okay.

Gunther: I knew you'd understand.

(Gunther walks away, leaving Rachel with a `What just happened?' look on her face.)

It was so funny....... Unexpressed love can at times make you do stupid things but it can be the best thing that might have happened.

Well in the following episode another incident happens between the two, which goes like this...

[Scene: Central Perk. Rachel is sitting on the couch alone working on a crossword puzzle. Gunther is there, going into the back room.]

Rachel: I did it! Oh! I finished it! I did it all by myself! And there's nobody to hug!

[From the background we hear a crash and Gunther comes running out of the back room, pushing people aside, reaching for Rachel.]

Gunther: Move!

[Gunther slips and falls just before reaching the back of the couch. Monica and Phoebe come into Central Perk.]

Rachel: Hey! Hey, you guys, I finished the crossword all by myself! Hug me!

[Gunther gets up slowly from behind the couch and walks away sadly]

Poor Gunther...........Still remember him expressing his love to Rachel in the last episode of last season and she like most, not taking it the way he meant, just replies I love you too.....

Dance...... MJ

Shit Man...I so wanted to refrain from mentioning about me deciding to join a Dance class(simply don't know why I am joining it) from this weekend till I actually start going there but with this breaking news I can't wait....

"Just when I decide to join Dance Class, Michael Jackson dies..."

Now on a funny note, it means MJ made way for me as at this age he can't bear competition :-P but on a very serious note , I think its sad...I was looking forward to his comeback concerts.

Since the last two days, I am going to office wearing Floaters (Sandals) and it seems to me as if I am just wearing slippers to office, I mean the feeling is so unprofessional. When I stroll in office it makes me feel as if I am in somewhere outdoors.

I don't think in my 3 years of corporate life I have ever worn anything other than formal shoes to office. And it would have remained same if not for this hot summer.

Everyday when I used to reach home in the evening and take off my shoes, I could hear my feets crying for air.

Although open shoes makes them dirty but at least they can breathe all the time otherwise with shoes they just get cramped for freedom.

Although it seems unprofessional but may be to fight this heat you need to be unconventional at times . But with rainy season expected anytime, I wonder how long I am going to have the liberty of wearing them to office.

Random Thought -XXIV

When we are not sure about what we exactly want, we confuse GOD too with our wishes and the end result because of that can be both tragic as well as quite funny :)

Wo hans ke mile humse ....

A week or two back I was reading Inscrutable Americans, and one incident that happens with the male protagonist "Gopal" makes me remember one song sung by the great Asha Bhosle in the film Bahare Phir Bhi Aaengi.

I thought I had already shared its lyrics on my blog but may be it was on the previous blog. So here it goes and clearly sums up the experience of most of the people

Wo has ke mile hum se, hum pyaar samaz baithhe
Bekaar hee ulfat kaa, ijahaar samaz baithhe

Aesi to n thee kismat apanaa bhee koee hotaa
kyo khud ko mohabbat kaa, hakadaar samaz baithhe

roye to bhalaa kaise, khole to jubaan kyon kar
dar ye hain ke jaane kyaa, sansaar samaz baithhe...

Calvin & Hobbes

Calvin - "You can't just turn on creativity like a faucet. You have to be in the right mood.

Hobbes - What mood is that ?

Calvin - Last minute panic.

Random Thought -XXIII

Such a strange thing called ...(I will say Life :))...... At one time you want to hear some people say "Have a nice day..." to you and at other time when they do say, instead of replying by saying "Same to you" with a smile, the first word that comes to your mind is "Now ????"

I din't know -I

Every time I used to see OK TATA written at the back of the trucks that run on Indian Roads, I used to think that they have just written to tease people whom they have overtaken or leading saying Bye bye (TA TA also means Good Bye)(I know its a funny interpretation).

But then soon I realized (I guess after almost 20 odd years of my life), that TATA is only written at the back of the trucks which are of TATA make i.e. the one manufactured by TATA Motors.

And probably OK certifies 0 Killed i.e. Zero person are killed by this truck.(OK originated as a symbol in UK,which soldiers used,to tell others after a battle that 0 persons from this battalion or army has been killed in the war)

PS: I thought about writing a post about the stuffs written at the back of Indian trucks and thought there I will mention this revelation of mine but that post has been left in safe drafts since long and I don't think I will get the motivation to complete it, so instead thought why not at least write a short post about it. (Its definitely short by my standards :-P)

Random Thought - XXI

Meira Kumar is the First Lady Speaker of Indian Parliament. So in the 57 years of our being Republic first time a woman is given the responsibility of managing the Parliament.

So that made me wonder why never before in 57 years?

The Answer I feel is , :)

A speaker is someone who organizes the parliament sessions i.e. to "listen" to everyone and make sure that every one get an opportunity to "Speak", So A WOMAN listening to others and that to, keeping herself quite and letting others Speak ????? :-P....Hmmm indeed an achievement for our country :)

Loved It..II

Today as part of Environment Week in my organization there was a painting as well as photography competition . The painiting competition was for the kids of the employees and for that all the painitings done by employee's children were displayed in the Atrium area. The were grouped in three groups 0-3 years , 5-7 and 7-10.

All the paintings were awesome and embarrased me thinking that even a 14 month baby drew a painting which I could only dream of drawing. I was drawn by one of my collegue towards a painting which I had somehow missed. Like others it was also depicting the environment concerns, talking about global warming, pollution and other environmental hazards but at the middle of it in bold this quote was written


I was really touched by the quote and thought how thoughtful.
Simply loved all the paintings. Infact some paintings were so beautiful that even professionals would had tough time drawing something like that. Kudos to those kids.
