Pest Control


It was my birthday yesterday. However this post will not be the happiest - I am weird .I followed new year with Rest In Peace  http://semisharings.blogspot.com/2011/01/rest-in-peace.html and now I am following the best b'day of my life with a guide on evading weird strangers on social networking websites!







OK, I know I am too young to write a guide - I am 15 years and 1 day  old. However I do have experiences a normal 15 yr old wouldn't have. Lets have it this way.....I knew it was fire , played with it , enjoyed it , tried to escape it by throwing oil on it and finally got burnt. 










At least I know how to evade the mosquitoes on these sites - I accept they are not that dangerous looking. They occasionally bite , but that bite can sometimes cause dengue or chickungunya - which is life threatening , so it best to enact the pest control.

Methods :
  • I would say that avoiding the breeding ground for mosquitoes is the most important method. Why open a sewer then blame the mosquitoes for coming? If you don't want strangers, the best thing is to USE the privacy settings. People think that being discreet is not cool , even I accept that. The whole point of social networking is to interact - all I am saying is, have display pictures , millions of photos , statuses , activity , heck everything! but enact the Privacy Settings ( am talking fb) , show all your info to only friends , remember if you SHOW nothing to strangers they wouldn't bother you! I actually suggest you people to hide your relationship status! That is the best way no stranger would send us requests , instead if you are all provocative with 'looking for women , men' heck. you lose the right to moan about spam torture.
  • In case of those friends whom youdon't know really much - it maybe rude - but for safety's sake , block them from photos and other things which you might find kinda personal.....( what the hell is 'personal' stuff doing on Facebook in the first place?) 








  • If you're idiotic or unlucky enough , you will get a stranger on your fb list once in a while. This is what I like to call Hit spray =P ( like pepper spray) I am not talking about you adding them wantedly ( that may also happen occasionally) this is more like- all of a sudden in your adding spree you would have just seen 34 mutual friends and added him/her (?) In my case when I started checking mutual friends - they were so dumb - like A.R Rahman ( =P) , some alumni and other school friend!! 

  • What do you do if he sends you a message? Actually,it all depends on the message - in many cases just a 'hi' where you would feel rude not to reply. I have had all scenarios - if you Don't reply it is most likely that he would give up , sometimes with abusive and personal messages , I suggest you to be selectively Blind and delete those pests IMMEDIATELY. If you play along you would find that guys are the most fake people on earth!You would seriously understand this when you have seen a 100 rude boys in the school and this guy on the net is sending all the sweet stuff. Hit the mosquito and enjoy the blood , don't let it suck everything out of you. You WILL find that they want to know everything about you , and all they reveal is a vague school name , city name and their number! 

  • NUMBER . Oh gosh I almost Forgot , never give them your NUMBER - it's suicide. At least in the net we have the safety of blocking them. Seriously if they have your number , they would torture you with their unlimited sms package  and send you cheesy messages which is enough to blow off a hundred semis. I was too intelligent to not give my no. - cozz I didn't have one B) :P


  • If the Mosquito has caused big damage , if you know if the malaria shivers are nearing ,it's time to report. It may seem insane to tell your parents about it. But you need to , you should at least save them from the embarrassment of a stranger telling them! It is also a  2 way  bonus- they get to Save you , you get to show them that you are honest (at least at the most important point of time)- not necessarily completely honest.

Would love some validation or better ... Some criticism!

ek gaon mein ek kisan raghu thatha! :P

It's been a week in Pune already!! :O
and believe it or not  - I have fallen in love with this city! <3
or maybe it is just another one of my defense mechanisms , protecting me from shocks. Whatever this is , it has aroused me enough, to write a post! So let me finish this before reality sinks in .
( Side note :

  Defense mechanisms are pretty intriguing . Do you know that I haven't cried a single tear drop yet? My friends think it is some kind of sacrilegious blasphemy from my  part. But hey! If pessimists argue that I have effectively ended one life , I argue back that I have just started a new one :) I do miss chennai . However , I am not going to go gaga over it. Okay I just did . )
I haven't had much chance to discover the city in its entirety yet. But , from whatever I have seen - it is fresh , green , pleasant and mindnumbingly beautiful :')

So here it is . The elusive list of things I have noticed about Pune and my new life in general :

1) I was never a nat…

The Girl who cried wolf

The Girl who cried wolf
Splendid Sir Do you know the girl who cried wolf? Of course you do Do you believe her torrid tales of The Big Bad wolves Who feast on her soul every day? Probably you do. We do know that one bad animal doesn’t define a species Do you? #Notallwolves We get it sir Can we get on with it?
Your fragile ego Calls her a Nazi And disses her into a ditch Of silent suffering Like the good old days When girls were good Like little red riding hood
You forgot the moral of the story didn’t you?

Hi readers! Thanks for sticking around even when I don't write for months. I was having a writer's block of sorts and generally a rough phase in my life. The poem I'm publishing below is a very personal one and took a great deal of bravery from my side to be even posted. Many friends dissuaded me from sharing this particular chapter of my life. I have written on what it is like, to feel like a failure even when you know that you aren't one. It might seem like a small problem to most of you but I assure you that it has taken its toll on my life. However , I've recovered enough to talk about it now and share it with others , for I know that I'm not alone and want others to not feel alone too. This post does not intend to be negative , it just captures one of the darker phases of my life. There is always light at the end of the tunnel , I just chose to project the darkness this time. Thank you.
