Life if full of a million things that we remember and cherish, enough to not even fill "One Gargantuan Monkey Fist". This is a collection of those special,unique and funny events my life, thoughts on technology, F1 and the ying-yang of relationships.

What has the world come to ?


Growing up, when your best friend had a moustache, you wanted one. You liked seeing your father shave and you wanted to do it. As a kid we have craved everything that adults do, wear pants, drive cars, have your own money to spend, your own TV, your own everything.

And then there comes a time when you would rather relax and let life take its own course. You would like to spend one more day in school before you graduate, smoke one more cigratte before you quit, drink one more beer before you leave.

Of late, I have found myself in the company of people who are busy preparing to get married. Given that I am 25 and all my friends are in the same age group, its understandable. I have nothing against them, I wish them all the luck. The part that sucks is that I am right there, single, not trying to hookup and yet I am in the middle of so many relationships getting into the next stage.

When I carefully span the spectrum, every single one of my friends, who is as old as me has been in a relationship for the past few years. The only ones I know who were not in one, were either the "mom will find me a girl" or "Dude how do you get laid so often?" kinda guys. Every single one of my good friends from undergrad is hooked up and they are planning their weddings now.

As the story goes, no more drinking buddies "I went out last week dude, I can't" and this was the "no man the party ain't over its only 4 AM" guy. No more dinner buddies "Dude I need to call India to talk to this girl, maybe after 11 ". Are all these guys are either growing up ?

If this is happening to me, it should and would be happening to every other person I know. It should have happened to my dad, his friends, my uncles, my sister who is a few years older than I am. I never heard anyone talk about this, I never saw a book at Barnes and Noble about this. Or.... is this happening to just me ?

Whatever the answer may be, I know that at this stage, I just want time to stand still, I do not want things to change, I do not want to grow up, if it is growing up.

Dont get me wrong, I dont have a problem with commitment, its just the kind of commitment and the time at which it happens. I know this aint the time for me, I am not sure when the time will be, but for now let time stay still.
