A Liar's Guide to the Dreams..

In the dead of the night, the dreams come in one by one. They cling to you with soft acceptance, and they know it all..

These are the dreams which leave a note of remembrance. They cling to our tongues like a bittersweet delight.

They feel familiar, though their flavour melts in the mouth... and taste distinctly unusual.

Its All Greek To Me

Another semester... and I have yet again changed my courses... not knowing what the hell to do... to T.S. Eliot from Renaissance Political Thought. Might sound stupid at this age, but sincerely, I have realized that it is not really my cuppa--- Politics.

So I went to tell ADG that I would like to change my subject...

P stands apprehensively outside The Godfather's door as ADG finishes his meeting. Enter door left The Star.

Panu- Erm... Sir..?

ADG- Hyaan, Bolo? (yes, speak?)

Panu- Iye Sir, Mane... Ami Renaissance Political thought bhabchhi chhere debo... sir mane, Nite parchhi naa ( Erm, Sir, I mean, I'm thinking that I might leave Renaissance Political thought... I mean, I cant take it any more...)

ADG- Oh FINE!!! Bhalo to...

Exit, Stage Right towards Net room.

Inference- Go Figure!!


Anyway, back to the drawing board... here's a list of 5 top greek words(and their meanings) I have learnt from ADG (the great).


5. Pathonta Gnonai this means knowing by suffering.

4. Kaka --- Bad. the meaning, that is. and Kakon kakistes means the baddest of the worst.

3. Hoimoi --- ALAS!!! this is the alas that carries itself with a deep sigh of distress...

2.Eromenos & Erastes---In Greek homosexual relations the young man and his Older Lover were called these respectively. The dominated Eromenos was the beardless youth within the age of 12-15, a shy, gentle and blushing creature, whose eyes would remain downcast and attitude submissive; he should not feel sexual desire, while his older bearded lover would be able to take charge of this boy, a strong character characterized by his erect penis, a sign of Masculinity.

1. Euryproktoi--- this means wide spread arse. An erommenos grows up and becomes aggressive. But if he remains submissive, then he is the worst butt of all jokes... a person who has been much used and abused. (This bit of info was accompanied by a wide grin from the guy).

Oh baby, thanks for the advice. Do ya hold a share with the ITC? If not, get one. It will pay dividend for you. I am back with India.
Try some drug shares too; specially the ones which deals with cough and throat problems. My clogged throat would help your dividends rise even further.
And last but no least: save a little money; for a rose on my graveyard!
With my life I would make thee rich.
Love you baby!

panu said...
