she was wearing a dress black as the night.she was the most beautiful girl i had ever layed my eyes upon.she had a bag slung across her shoulder.we got into the same train.i went and sat next to her.i was exhilarated.she suddenly reached into her bag and there was an was all over.

54 words...

lucifer speaks
he expelled me for being too pride a sin?why should i be subservient to someone who is obviously inferior?i’ll have my revenge.i’ll prove to him that his chosen ones can easily be made to forget him.they’ll worship me even if they profess otherwise.after all, it’s better to rule in hell than serve in heaven.

55 words...

thus spake nietzsche...

"The conditions under which any one understands me, and necessarily understands me--I know them only too well. Even to endure my seriousness, my passion, he must carry intellectual integrity to the verge of hardness. He must be accustomed to living on mountain tops--and to looking upon the wretched gabble of politics and nationalism as beneath him. He must have become indifferent; he must never ask of the truth whether it brings profit to him or a fatality to him... He must have an inclination, born of strength, for questions that no one has the courage for; the courage for the forbidden; predestination for the labyrinth. The experience of seven solitudes. New ears for new music. New eyes for what is most distant. A new conscience for truths that have hitherto remained unheard. And the will to economize in the grand manner--to hold together his strength, his enthusiasm...Reverence for self; love of self; absolute freedom of self.....

Very well, then! of that sort only are my readers, my true readers, my readers foreordained: of what account are the rest?--The rest are merely humanity.--One must make one's self superior to humanity, in power, in loftiness of soul,--in contempt."

FRIEDRICH W. NIETZSCHE (in the preface to 'the antichrist')

yet another song...

if french is the language of love...german is the language of anger...
consequently, german is the perfect language for metal!!!
listened to a lot of rammstein this morning...and this song keeps playing over and over in my's one of my favorite rammstein numbers because of the's called "Asche zu asche"...

"Warmer körper,heißes kreuz
Falsches urteil,kaltes grab
Auf dem kreuze lieg ich hier
Sie schlagen mir die nägel ein
Das feuer wäscht die seele rein
Und übrig bleibt ein mundvoll asche

Asche zu asche

Ich komm wieder,in zehn tagen
Als dein schatten,und werd dich jagen
Heimlich werd ich auferstehen
Und du wirst um gnade flehen
Dann knie ich mich in dein gesicht
Und steck den finger in die asche

Asche zu asche
Und staub zu staub"

for those who don't know deutsche(german for those who don't know deutsche),like myself, here's the translation...

Warm body, hot cross,
False judgment,
Cold grave
On the cross i'm lying now,
They pound the nails into me
The fire cleanses my soul and a mouthful of ashes remains

Ashes to ashes

I shall chase you
Secretly i shall resurrect and you will beg for mercy
Then i'll kneel in your face an put my finger into the ashes

Ashes to ashes
and dust to dust...

white rabbit...

recently heard a great song by a band called jefferson airplane...the song is called white rabbit...its a good song with great friend told me that the band wrote this song on lsd and i found that quite probable when i read the lyrics...its all about "alice in wonderland" and "through the looking glass"...i liked those books a lot when i read them but i never realised that they could very naturally be taken as full of drug references...will not insult you by giving an interpretation of the lyrics...just take a look and be surprised...

"One pill makes you larger
And one pill makes you small
And the ones that mother gives you
Don't do anything at all
Go ask Alice
When she's ten feet tall

And if you go chasing rabbits
And you know you're going to fall
Tell 'em a hookah smoking caterpillar
Has given you the call
To call Alice
When she was just small

When the men on the chessboard
Get up and tell you where to go
And you've just had some kind of mushroom
And your mind is moving low
Go ask Alice
I think she'll know

When logic and proportion
Have fallen slowly dead

And the White Knight is talking backwards
And the Red Queen's off with her head
Remember what the dormouse said:
"Feed your Head
Feed your Head!"

mind blowing...isn't it?

bored of education...

another break in life at kgp arrives...another occasion when the professors reaffirm the fact that they have utterly failed to teach the students anything at all(either because the students didn't bother to come to the boring classes or because they can't teach at all...)...exam time arrives again...the most boring times for me in the last 3-4 yrs have been the times when exams come around...i had thought that i won't let these midsems to work me up again to write something...but can't be helped...when everybody around you is talking, walking, sleeping, eating, drinking, peeing and shitting midsems then you are bound to catch that infectious disease and look for a ignore this post as the raving and ranting of a frantically bored many have gone past, this too will pass...

mission kashmir...

coming back from the hospital after a long time...the dreaded chicken pox struck me without any warnings...nobody around me had it and it seems i gave it to no one at all...really feels bad not to have given anyone else the chance to give up their freedom for a few days...
now coming to the point...for a long time now i have been interested in song meanings and interpretations and led zep has been my greatest challenge...finally i think i have made some sense out of the song kashmir which incidentally is credited to all 4 members of the here goes...
to give a little background...from my wanderings on the net i discovered that bonham was a great fan of tolkien and parts of this song are inspired by his "the simarillion"(forgive me if i got the spelling wrong)...the song is based on the bands travels through the deserts of lets go on to the lyrics...

"Oh let the sun beat down upon my face, stars to fill my dream
I am a traveler of both time and space, to be where I have been
To sit with elders of the gentle race, this world has seldom seen
They talk of days for which they sit and wait and all will be revealed
Talk and song from tongues of lilting grace, whose sounds caress my ear
But not a word I heard could I relate, the story was quite clear
Oh, oh."
here they are obviously imagining morocco as the land of the elves who are called the gentle race...the elder elves(or moroccan tribesmen) discuss prophecies and sing songs about them in a language we don't understand but somehow understand the gist of what is said...probably this part has been written by bonham...

"Oh, I been flying... mama, there ain’t no denyin’
I’ve been flying, ain’t no denyin’, no denyin’"
this is an obvious drug they are flying all probability this part is plant's(or maybe page's)...

"All I see turns to brown, as the sun burns the ground
And my eyes fill with sand, as I scan this wasted land
Trying to find, trying to find where I’ve been."
a rude awakening to reality...after the effects have worn off they see themselves in a desert land with no elves or prophecies...

"Oh, pilot of the storm who leaves no trace, like thoughts inside a dream
Heed the path that led me to that place, yellow desert stream
My shangri-la beneath the summer moon, I will return again
Sure as the dust that floats high and true, when movin’ through kashmir."
the promised land of the prophecies and elves is sought by them...they are sure that they will return to this shangri-la,this kashmir...the reference to kashmir must not be taken to refer to the disputed land but to the ideal of heaven on earth represented by it...

"Oh, father of the four winds, fill my sails, across the sea of years
With no provision but an open face, along the straits of fear
they ask god to give them courage for this journey of soul searching to reach that promised land(that ideal) through defeating their fears...

"When I’m on, when I’m on my way, yeah
When I see, when I see the way, you stay-yeah
Ooh, yeah-yeah, ooh, yeah-yeah, when I’m down...
Ooh, yeah-yeah, ooh, yeah-yeah, well I’m down, so down
Ooh, my baby, oooh, my baby, let me take you there
Let me take you there. let me take you there"
through this seeking the singer asks the beloved to stay with him so that they can reach this state of mind together...

this interpretation struck me suddenly while listening to the song one day with my friend handa...i started telling him and he said that this was the best interpretation that he had heard so far and coaxed me to put it on my here it might well not be what the band intended but still its what i take it to mean...i'll end with a quote on kashmir in persian...
Gar Firdaus bar-ruye zamin ast
Hamin asto hamin asto hamin ast.

(if there is heaven on is here,it is here,it is here...)
