Stated need - Real need phenomenon

Everyone goes on and on about first love. To be fair it deserves all the hype it gets. Guys who fall in "love" can be of two kinds. One who believe in "true love", "soul mate", "one love for life" and the other know from the beginning that they will not end up together forever.

The first category are the ones who will someday quote all sorts of break up stuff on their walls and end up watching every heartbreak song on youtube. Why else would such "let's cry together" songs become blockbusters?
The other kind of people (who know they are not in it for a long haul) are usually looked down upon. The fact is that the first category (heartbreak champions), after they finish all the weeping, will graduate to the level of this second category guys who by-passed the trouble of going through all the torture and realization drama.

Having said that, the probability of couples ending up together does not vary much in both the kinds. At the end of the day people move on due to various reasons which may range from a new partner option to parents' don't approve to my pet doesn't seem to like you.

The real need is to have a boyfriend/girlfriend and the stated need is true love. When two people understand this fact, they can be the happiest pair even if for a short span. The break up doesn't hurt much and you can avoid all the comedy of "your smile is my oxygen".

I respect the institution of marriage and would not want to comment on that part of life. But before that one need not feel obliged to carry the burden of emotions and worries about future and the grief of break up (at least not after you had it once). Teenage to marriage is supposed to be the best part of life and it will be so if both parties in the pair are willing to accept the real need.

My top 10 of 2010 (Telugu)

10. Rooba Rooba - Orange: The humming part is my favourite. Song has a feel to it and is in the tolerable part of the movie - flashback

9. Amma Thalle - Puli: I have to admit I do not get most of the song :P Just love the flow of the song and the vocals.

8. Nenu Nuvvantu - Orange: Naresh Iyer deserves major chunk of the appreciation this song received. The lyrics, though apt for the movie, are not the best.

7. Nijamena - Brindavanam: Enter King Karthik! :P I like the orchestration and of course the vocals.

6. Neeve - Darling: Song has great feel to it but the visuals are not shot in the way I would've liked. Nevertheless, a great number by GVPK.

5. Kundanapu Bomma - YMC: The first of YMC series :P Tamil version is even more popular. Was on repeat mode when I first heard.

4. Avunana Kaadhana - Leader: Mickey magic with Naresh Iyer and Shweta Pandit. Was cursing Kammula in the theater for not shooting it full length for the movie.

3. Ee Hrudayam - YMC: One of those songs for which you better avoid the video :P The dance spoiled this wonderful number. Watch VTV version for this one.

2. Sada Shiva - Mahesh Khaleja: The song was received very well even though the movie could not fare well. The beat enthralls you especially in a good audio system :P

1. Vintunnava - YMC: Rahman + Karthik + Shreya Ghoshal = Top draw. Triple treat. Magical.

Stats in top 10:

Music Directors: Rahman - 4, Harris: 2, Thaman, GVPK, Mickey, Mani Sharma- 1

Singers: Naresh Iyer: 3, Karthik: 2

I look at the clock and there's about 40 minutes for my class; thought I could write a quickie in the time remaining. Well, first I thought to write about why the Congress party keep ruling at the center despite having record number of scandals in their reign. Is it the public or weak opposition? But then with my minimum amount of knowledge about the scams and the political facts and figures I thought it would be better to drop the idea and would like to know if you have any answer :-/ (got to start reading one of these days)

With the way the Ashes is turning out I thought this is the right time for an India-England test series as both seem very confident. Would like to have your thoughts on that too. My favourite English player Cook has been brilliant in the series so far with a half-century, a century and an unbeaten double as well!

All set for end term exams and my Hyd trip. Munaf is leaving for the states, hope to meet the rest of the gang. Of course all the movies will be covered, that's an integral part of any Hyd trip. Planned a lot of shopping this time around. Some necessities like a new mobile, specs, shoes etc.. Hope to have a great trip.

Everyone had a great French Nite party with the exchange students here. In fact, was one of the hosts as a member of Int. Rel. Comm.. The food was great, had some fun events organized by the French students.

Fell in love with Tumse hi Tumse song from Anjaana Anjaani. Was listening in repeat mode and now added to my favourites' playlist.

Lots of day dreaming about long term goals going on and don't know how much of it will materialize :| I believe future will always come as a surprize so let us leave it there. Want to close the post saying that we should beat our inhibitions and chase our dreams to actually look back and say that we lived the way we wanted to. (saying that to myself a lot these days; not preaching)

Sayonara! Comment Puhleeeeeeeeeez.
