It has been almost 6 years in hyderabad and the two things i am in total love with are hyderabadi biryani and hyderabadi hindi !! Any phrase from hyderabadi hindi has the potential to bring a smile on my face in any situation of distress.I will write about few of these phrases which got engraved in my mind.
First one :
While travelling via bus I generally prefer to sit in the drivers cabin and enjoy their talks and gossips . In one of such journey from chennai to hyderabad , while crossing some forest area ,the bus TC asked the driver ..” are miyan…in junglaa me sheraa rehte kyaa.. “ !!
Second instance :
I have been struggling with gear in my bike . I went to get it repaired . I explained my problem to the worker there . After listening he shouted “Are Salman ..dekho to jara ..ye geraaan nahi lagte jii “
And now there is one phrase which is the best one . Its a common answer to many questions and I have been getting this reply very frequently for almost all the six years of my stay in hyderabad . Whatever your query be ..” Bhaiya ye kharab to nahi hoga na ? ” ..or let it be .” Yaar bhaiya gurantee hai na ?” ..or may be when you are having a spicy biryani “..isse pet kharab to nahi hoga na ? “..And the answer to all these queries is same and is the most soothing phrase i can ever imagine in reply . It is ” Kuch bhi ni hota yaarooon ”
I am not sure how impressive this post was but i really wanted to show my love for this language of ”hauu” and “nakko” .

It all happened at the moment when my mother realised either of the two things written below when i was 2 and a half year old :
a. I am damn intelligent and need to join school asap to exploit my hidden talents .
b.She wanted me to spend half of the day in school premises .May be i was very very naughty ??:( .
I still wonder ,which of the above was actually true .For ,if the first one is true then “are my hidden talents still hidden ?? ” and the second one is too hard to believe . i wasnt naughty ..i was cuteeee
The minimum age requirement to get admission was 3 years and so it was decided without my concern :( to prove me 4 months older and then after negotiations( as i was still 2 years and 10 months ) they admitted me .
There starts my school life.Always in search of those hidden talents !!.Everybody strived hard to teach me. My mom ,my teachers ,my elder siblings ..and yes they succeeded .At the end of first year i was able to write two most important letters ie “1″ and “A” (only capital A) .Although i could write few other digits also, given i have to overwrite the already written . .
This was not the end of my LKG .The end had to be brutal. I FLUNKED in LKG.
The two major reasons for this were as follows :
a. My socre !! (if any )
b.My mom meeting the principal.
I always imagine there conversation would have been very much similar to this one :
Mrs Zaidi : Anurag has passed in none of the subjects !! .
Mom : Yeah ..it was expected . [:P]
Mrs Zaidi : But if you want we can allow him to be a part of UKG .It hardly matters..he is brilliant and he will manage .I am sure . :)
Mom : Thanks a lot mam ..but i want him to repeat .I know my child better
This was again without my concern . Cant imagine my failure !! What would have been my reaction .Do i knew the meaning of the word “failure” ?? But again “alls well that ends well ” .I passed LKG next year ..
But this “nakli bday fanda ” had many advantages . The most obvious one was that i could distribute choclates on my bday .It wouldnt have been possible on my original bday ie 16th June (Summer Vacations ) . I dont see any disadvantage of this gesture of my parents .Thanks mom
So,happy bday Anurag

Hostel lif rocks !! this is wat everybody believe n everybody wanna taste it but not everybody is as LUCKY as i am :-)..
Chaos everywhere .It starts at 6 AM everyday ….not for all..only for few ( specially me n my dear roomi )..bcos we care for our PT credits .!!.Den der starts our duty ..as if we r hostel wardens ..banging d doors of all those who aspire for credits .N most of time our herculean afforts r fruitless ..sooooooo disappointing ,but still we do it every mrning .Let me tell u d aura 12 hrs bfr …sorobh (hisari 3 ) says “Oye tyl ,subah utha dena ,pakke se ” , Serpek weeps “oye Tayal ,Dekh yaar muje subah utha dena ,credits lene hai yaar ,abhi bhi nahi liye to **** jayegi .” n it goes on . I too keep few alarms but dey help me only wen He fails . guess who is He ??? So d exercise part is quite boring ..but half n hr is fi9…after all “health is wealth ” ..Den bak to hostel ..!! Everyone on their beds …few taking a wash .( very few )..Amal asking d same ques “Tayal ,PT gaya tha kya ..gud ” n most intersting part of hostels mrning ….HE sings so well ,so melodious ,soooooooo honeyed…..U can always ask him to sing a song netime ,nesong but it may cost u Rs 365 /annum ..costly na ,,i mean 1 Re is gud oderwise apni apni shraddha se ..but min 50 paise …..after all he needs money to improve his vocals ( )….u must b curiuous to know who is HE n difinitely i will tell u d name ,dis may help HIM earn sum more bucks . SO he is our BALLE ..Nightingale of IIIT_H — Raveesh Juneja……GOD save us …(GOD =RAVEESH )..

well….dese were d last 75 horrible days ..so pathetic…soooooooo boring…..sooooo sedentary . I have always been wndring y do people cry for holidays …but i got dat ans wen i reached IIIT-H..n i really luk at dese buddies wid a green-eye.!!! My dear roooomie ie @nkush says “I EXPLORED myself…..I DISCOVERED my limits ….every moment was so happening n adventrous ….”….ah dat was a bit relief to me .I never wan to ‘explore myself’ ..(dis frase sucks ) . But i was churned up wen i heard dis from ANKUSH..he is a guy who’s always short of words …always confused …but very jolly . But dat was sure to happen as he gotta GAL ……he is so happy .
Now dat was enuf for ankush …Kinshul also have a reason to luk back to his summers …his summers include both achievements n merriment.!!! Talkin about achievements wont b interesting n dat may impair my blog..but in short ,he was busy wid sum project n stayed in IIIT-H for half of d summers (d biggest achievement ) . talkin abt fun ..wen u talk abt summers i guess he will b d 1st one to give d biggest smile . He had a tour of paradises viz singapore , malaysia, portblair .i guess he had everything which he wuldnt hav dreamed of in INDIA (:-)…babes in bikinies ,beach mob .
Anshul says he studied sum stuff . well, dats not strange of him .
Rockey (iitb) one of my best buddies n a very despo guy ,decided to wrk under sum project but culdnt continue in summers . Always busy wid lukkhagiri but a amazing person to hang up with . We both stand at same platform wen talking abt summers ’07 (i guess.. )
Nikki – she had fabulous summers . I was speechless wen i saw her entering in a bus heading for sum yatra .How can one at this age think of it !!????? But i was wrong, dey ie d whole group ,enjoyed at their fullest .The YATRA must hav been adventrous …this is wat i can declare after seeing their snaps. AND she is d gal who i belive can njoy even in hell n even in IIIT-H . I will hav to learn this thing from her .
Now let me tell u ..how were my holidays . I didnt explore myself ,neither i had visit to any paradise (even not Mt Abu ,which is very very near to me ),neither i headed for sum yatra ( i shuld have taken a chance ), n i even didnt thought of studying ,no movies,no bc (i missed all bak-c’s ).N truly speaking i don know wat i did .I was always wid my mom (d only +tive factor ) .
so i pray to GOD n d spirit behind BAK-C to help me to forget summer’07 :( .
waiting for ur comments .!!
