Sometimes, I get a little too paranoid.
Some other times, a little more excited than I normally should.
This unwarranted burst of extreme paranoia/mania subsides quickly though.
Perhaps this happens because I am a little (read: lot) self-centered.
Or maybe the whole issue is a bugbear of sorts that happens when my sub-conscience decides to take a little nap which, I figure happens quite a lot these days.
Maybe I am getting into a spiritual trance without my knowledge. 😀
And so the other day at office, I was bored to half-death.
I so surmised I’ll complete the ordeal and Shilly being the most communicative in our group (yes, that’s my euphemism for chatter-box :P) offered to narrate me a story.
Disclaimer: For those of you who still believe I am a nerd, I strongly suggest you might as well stop reading right here. If you perchance happen to read and ask me rhetorical questions about it, I’ll vehemently deny everything I say in this blog. Needless to say, I am not good at arguments, especially when it comes to the losing part. 😛
It all started at National High School.
A place where I first saw myself as this sanskrit verse depicts –
यदा किञ्चिज्ञोहं द्विप इव मदान्द: समभवं
तदा सर्वज्ञोस्मीत्यभवदलिप्तं मम मन: |
यदा किञ्चित् किञ्चित् बुदजन सकाशादवगतं
तदा मूर्खोस्मीति ज्वरैव मदोमे व्यपगत: ||
(I’ll leave it to the reader to google if it was beyond comprehension)
I generally am a man of few words, largely due to my limited vocabulary! 🙂
And even so I normally manage to communicate fairly well.
(Though I resort to gestures most of the times, if not everytime)
That said, there’s something that pretty much gets onto my nerves.
Overly ornate language!
Yes siree.. The use of bombastic language in verbal communication!!
Perhaps, I’d appreciate it in written works. But oral communication??
And no sir, preparing for GRE is no excuse.
