Make it large.... no! make it a Patiala!!

Make it large.... no! make it a Patiala!!
It's my life and I'm living it up!!

Alright, if you know me well enough you might've guessed that this is not about drinking but something beyond that. Honestly, the title has little or nothing to do with the contents of the post. I just needed a title and well while commenting on Scout's blog I coined up this phrase... and thus from now on this very minute, I claim copyright on that. Do remember to pay your royalties. Only GBP accepted!! Why, if you may ask, let me tell you I need those!! Loads of them. I really can't say I'm digressing but then, I think I've had enough of blabbering about the title. Honestly, does anyone care two hoots about it?? I'll bet you your entire account the answer is nobody!! (This way I gain ;) )


I have been reading up a bit today.. blogs I mean and mostly I saw people writing about relationships (don't go by the blogroll... I read four times the blogs you see there!!) and frankly, they were either breaking up, on the verge of it or just started. Well, that's nice. And then there was this story about a long-distance relationship. Going through all that stuff left me in a tizzy, I seriously had to chip in with my two cents on this. Frankly, you really gotta be in sync with the other person. And break-ups don't happen all of a sudden. There are signs, ways to pick up signals.. read them.. don;t be such a dunderhead!! being in love is ok.. in fact its great, but being stupid while at it is not. IMHO, if you are going to be that.... you are better off without love.. at least you won't suffer the heart-breaks and the associated after-maths. Fell in Love?? go ahead.. celebrate it!! It's a great thing!! Broke up?? Fair enough.... somethings are never meant to be. Don't get yourself low over it. It'll hurt for sometime. But then, you should be having friend around you to cushion your fall. And trust me with the right mix, you'll be living life with hope before the day is up!!


Anywyz, enough of relationships. Moving on to other stuff, I guess I'm finally going for my higher studies. But then, for that to happen this Gorkhaland nuisance has got to clear up, otherwise my transcripts would never reach the university and the offer would be withdrawn. As they say.. there are many a slip between the cup and the lip. Honestly, firstly the idiots at the my previous University take their own sweet time in releasing the extra transcripts I had asked. Had they stuck to the normal said routine of 2 weeks max, things would have been cool, I would have had the transcripts with me, with a copy on its way to my next University and I would have been applying for my visa by now. Instead, here I am waiting anxiously for the transcripts nad simply praying that the College gives me some extra rope. Bloody hell!!


Apart from that nothing much really.... except that I've realised never consider anything more important than your own self. You would end up giving undue powers to people to hurt in a manner you would never appreciate. And yeah, no matter what always keep around you friends who can support you the best when you need it. And be a support for them too!! :)


Alright now that I'm finished am off to make another Patiala peg.... would anyone care to join?? :D

PS: For the uninitiated, Patiala peg is larger than the regulation large peg and should measure about 90ml :)

this is a very good write up esp the part where you say that we end up giving somebody else powers to hurt us more.

thats not wat we want, yet it happens and thats sad.........

i totally concur with u on relationships. love shows signs of cracking up and one shud be subtle to see them and act!!!

this phase shall passs

Solitaire said...

UTP said...

so you have got a pretty good advice for everybody who is in some kind of a stage in a relationship....you can actually open a psychic hotline....and get the GBPs as well....

if you go ahead with the above idea...remember to pass on the royalties here as well for the idea....UAE Dirhams only please hehhe...

Sam said...

well... you are late with the idea by a few years :)
but anywyz, thanks for reminding me about it again!!
hmmm.... should I become a psychiatrist now??? I wonder!!

ranjana said...

amazing post sam :)
n so was the title....make it patiala...
you are so right...no one is more important than us...n when we give that undue importance to someone else we put that person on pedestal and our downfall begins....so true....but sam don't you think most of us can't take break ups gracefully

u have a nice blog and thanx a ton for dropping by :)

MAN IN PAINTING said...

liked your post.your cool style.And ofcourse the patiala too...!
wishes for your higher studies.
keep posting.
me too blog.

Sam said...

@ranjana:
thanx for dropping by...
it is true.. many ppl or rather most cannot take it gracefully... and it is because the presence of the other person added a distinct flavor to ur living which u loved above all else..a dn suddenly its gone.. you fight like hell to retain it... and then cry foul when it's gone.. its human nature!!

Sam said...

@man:

thnx mate.... :)
thnx for dropping by!!

Buzzz said...

Sam said...

@solo:

@moo:

the girl with a zillion namesakes said...

there is a already a gokhaland then what is the debacle over...i thought they were claiming a seprate gorkhaland...

Sam said...

exactly!! they want a separate gorkhaland, comprising of Darjeeling, Kalimpong, Dooars, Siliguri and adjoining area!!
The argument is the ppl frmo that part of the country are culturally and ethnically different from the ones in plains... ridiculous!! seriously... these ppl shud be hanged.. should be following such a diktat, soon india wud be a land of 100 states!! soon!!

shooting star said...

never consider anything more improtant than yourself..i agree on that wholeheartedly!!!.
we all know about the logics of love...but when we are going thru the heartbreak...the world around us seems to fall..and there seems to be no sun rising the next day for us!!!..but with time we realsie life is going on......

Macadamia The Nut said...
