The Call




For the seventh time, he dint answer her call because he was angry at her for not calling him throughout the day.


The next morning he got a call from the police saying that the girl had an accident last night while driving using cell and his number was first on the recent call list..!!

P.S. : This is my first attempt at writing 55 fiction, a form of fiction to be completed within a limit of 55 words.Its really challenging to complete the story in just 55 words. I found it interesting and so decided to give it a try..!! Do let me know how it was and if there are any suggestions for further improvement.!!!


My inspiration for this was my blog mate Shruti..!! Cheers to you yaar, you write fabulous stories in just 55 words..!!!


Some BEST Moments..!!!



Sharing some of the best moments of my life..

Best not as best actually but as some moments of my journey on the BEST Buses in Mumbai...

I generally start my day with a journey by bus to my college and right from this time things start going wrong..... I mean the day when I am on time the bus is late and on the days when I get late by even a minute, the bus is on time and it is gone too.......!! Then I have to wait far another bus for around 15 minutes or find some other option...!! :( It happens with me always.....!!


Travelling is always the best when I can grab a window seat and
the stop near my home being the first stop, finding a seat is never a great task..!! But else otherwise finding a good seat(good because some seats are worse than standing too... specially the last seat... Seems as if you are on a roller-coaster ride, specially due to the well maintained roads in Mumbai) is not easy.

If you are in a mood to listen to a lecture in the morning just try giving the conductor a 100 rupee note for some ticket of Rs.4 or 5 and surely you would listen a great deal....!!! :P

There are many types of people too... some who talk loudly on cell phones, some who speak so slowly that even if they are sitting next to me I cant get a word, others who play music on MP3 in loudspeaker mode, (I wonder why do they want the people around to listen to the songs they are hearing) some listening music through their earphones completely unaware of the environment around, Some just quite and looking out of the window,siblings fighting to grab a window seat, some dozing off (again I wonder how can anyone sleep there????) some sitting on seats reserved for ladies in spite of some lady standing and some standing in spite of the ladies seats being empty(Real Gentlemen). You just get a perfect glimpse of the world around in these buses.


The best moments on the bus stop are when there is a long queue n someone breaks the queue and enters in between..!!! It is really funny to watch this scene because all the people in the line shout unanimously,"Aaa....... Aaaa " :D


Some days back, having misplaced my earphones somewhere I couldn't even listen to music while travelling. That day while coming back home in the evening, the bus was crowded. A young guy got into the bus and had his earphones plugged in his ears. He was obviously not aware of the commotion around. He got in but stood near the door. Now the conductor was displeased with this. So he shouted at the boy to get in and stand .But this guy was in his own world not aware of anyone addressing him..... Finally someone tugged him on his sleeve and asked him to get in. Then he started speaking loudly(I think again he must not have realised that he is being so loud) Where is the place to stand in?? Again all the people in the bus , specially those who were standing started talking about him.. and he was completely in his own world. After a couple of stops passed by, he had to get in, due to public demand....... I guess.. :)

At this I realised that this guy was surely not just aware about what was going on around.. But was he the only one??? So many times even I am in his shoes... So my next post on importance of listening the buzzes around you .... ;)




HaPpY bIRtHdAy tO yOu....!!!!


Happy birthday to u...
Happy birthday to u...
Happy birthday to dear.....
Happy birthday to u...!!!

Did u read this in the typical happy birthday tone...???

Yes??

No??

Well, the purpose of this post is to know how actually people read things. It is proved that when we read something that we have heard many many times earlier and it follows a typical tune, our mind subconsciously reads in the same tone. So if you read the above lines in the typical birthday song way, it is because you have heard these lines so many times that the tune is registered in your mind and so you read it, recollecting the same tune in your mind...!!!

Ohkkk..Now enough with my Phekology..!!! ;)

The purpose of this post is not what is stated above. It is a simple post dedicated to someone special born this day... err.... Are you thinking I am gonna write about Mahatma Gandhi???? Na..naaa...Its my brothers birthday today...

What a birth date.. shares it with The Greatest Follower of peace, non-violence and truth.. Not that he has all these qualities..!!! ;)

Anyways who wants a peace loving brother????

So this is to wish him a Very, Very, Very Happy Birthday..!!!!

Happy birthday to u...
Happy birthday to u...
Happy birthday to dear Dhaval......
Happy birthday to u...!!! :)




This is for my sweet younger brother who turns 17 today.....!! Well so much to write about him that I can go on & on... But today I'll just mention here the relationship between me, my brother and blogging..!!!!

He just does.. naa... did not like my Blogging....!! Whenever he saw me reading or writing blog posts/ comments he used to get angry with me and keep on saying that I am just wasting time on the PC.. As he had some very important works on PC.... Important like playing Counterstrike, GTA Vice city & God Knows what other games......!! We had many arguments over it and finally....

One day when I was reading a story one night on one of my friends blog, he saw me smiling, while reading something.

Dhaval:- "Why are You smiling to urself?? You are studying naa..!!"

Urvashi:- "Arey this story...read it ....You will like it..."

D:- "Is it on your blog again??"

U:- "No..one my friends blog...C...."

D:-"Haan..Its all the same...your blog...Friend ka blog....."

U:- "Arey.....You don't know anything about it...Do u want to read it or no??"

D:- "Hmm...It isn't too long naa??"

U:- "No...."

Then Dhaval started reading it. I watched the expressions on his face change as he read every line. Smiling.. Amused, surprised.. His face reflected every mood described in the line.

When he completed it, he said it was really nice work. He liked it. Then he moved to the next one. He read three posts from the same blog and began enjoying it. He no longer had the same hatred for blogging or bloggers who spent their time blogging... !!

Then he read my blog. It was for the first time that he had actually read what I had written on Urvashi's Corner...!! He had seen the site many a times but had never cared to read anything. He verified a 1000 times if I had written all the articles myself and that they were not copy-pasted from somewhere..!!!! I explained him all things about blogging and the various types of blogs and also told him that blogging does not consist of copy-paste work...!!! It is creative..!!! That day we were reading blogs till about 1 a.m. and it changed his view about blogging. Now , we generally read blogs together at night and if he is not there when I come across some interesting posts, I refer them to him later....

He suggested me to write stories and not just articles...!! I told him that I would write about him in my blog then..!! All his stories....!!! ;)

So what better day than today??

Well right now, he is not at home. So I can write peacefully... He would know this only after it is published..!!! :P

He is my friend, enemy, my partner in all crimes at home, my mood maker when I am in a bad mood, a detective (a person who lives in all brothers who have sisters, I believe) who stealthily keeps a watch on all my activities...!!!!

Well... he is a sweet heart playing so many roles simultaneously..!!!

Have a great time....... Wishing you loads of happiness and success all through your life......!!!!

Cheers..!!! :)
