20th March 2012

It was a normal day, but something was going within and I was feeling very much excited about the day. It was month of March and Life was bit hectic. All the corporate houses were busy closing their Financial Accounts, so was mine. But still Anxious & excited about the day to unfold its special gift. The wait was over and nothing, nothing special happened...It so frustrating...

At around 7pm, while waiting for the escalator outside my office at 12 floor, my phone ringed....”Message received”

“Hi dear, how are you???”
(Number not listed in my phonebook.)

First thought in grey matter (of guys) that glows like any advertisement hoarding is “God...please don’t betray me this time, let it be the love for which I was waiting...thank you God...”

The conversation began with interrogation (who??what??where??) and ended at midnight  with Titanic smile...finally God didn’t let me down...She was my love lady...my true love...

(“I too had a love story” book inspired me and any thought against her was negated by my emotionally overflowing heart...I was in love...yes love can happen any time anywhere...It will not take time....)

30th March 2012

Ten days...and we were friends on facebook, gtalk, yahoo, yahoo messenger, BBM, Watsapp, Skype, Viber...etc...Any application that made us come closer and remain in contact was used. Weird thing was that for past 10 days we have been only chatting...we have not seen each other or even heard each other.

(She was working with an IT firm as an analyst and lived in Pune.)

Haven’t proposed her yet but was planning to do so by paying a visit and surprise her with a bouquet, teddy and card. Despite hectic schedule I was in cloud nine...enjoying the feeling of love and even my boss sensed it...(In month of march if you have titanic smile....then for sure entire world will know)

1st April 2012

March was over successfully...so did Titanic smile...everything was fake...(Even after 100 years titanic was destined to sink...)


I was feeling on top of the WORLD

And I thought I had fallen in LOVE

Messages kept flooding in my Cell phone

And I was wondering -"What the hell is going on?"

No matter how much I stressed my empty Brain,

Anywhere I could not find a LOOSE END.

She made me feel, that I was her whole world;

Sleepless nights and restless days is what I earned.

Honestly, I fell for her, thinking she is the one made for me

Over days I started dreaming -Together, How our future would be?

Lately when I realized, that this was all a PRANK

Embarrassing was that moment, I tell you to be FRANK!!!



My friends, made it up...everything...such flawless execution of plan...I am feeling very low...pinched and punched myself, but it’s no more a nightmare but its reality...

April fool...

With Inquisitiveness started searching World Wide Web (www) for answer to the question:

Why we celebrate 1st April as fools’ day?

The answer which was/is easily available is listed hereunder:

Wikipedia:

April Fools' Day is celebrated in different countries on April 1 every year. Sometimes referred to as All Fools' Day, April 1 is not a national holiday, but is widely recognized and celebrated as a day when people play practical jokes and hoaxes on each other.

In France and Italy, children and adults traditionally tack paper fish on each other's back as a trick and shout "April fish!" in their local language ("poisson d'avril!" and "pesce d'aprile!" in French and Italian respectively).

The earliest recorded association between April 1 and foolishness can be found in Chaucer's Canterbury Tales (1392). Many writers suggest that the restoration of January 1 as New Year's Day in the 16th century was responsible for the creation of the holiday, but this theory does not explain earlier references.

History.com:

On this day in 1700, English pranksters begin popularizing the annual tradition of April Fools' Day by playing practical jokes on each other.

Although the day, also called All Fools' Day, has been celebrated for several centuries by different cultures, its exact origins remain a mystery. Some historians speculate that April Fools' Day dates back to 1582, when France switched from the Julian calendar to the Gregorian calendar, as called for by the Council of Trent in 1563. People who were slow to get the news or failed to recognize that the start of the new year had moved to January 1 and continued to celebrate it during the last week of March through April 1 became the butt of jokes and hoaxes. These included having paper fish placed on their backs and being referred to as "poisson d'avril" (April fish), said to symbolize a young, easily caught fish and a gullible person.

Historians have also linked April Fools' Day to ancient festivals such as Hilaria, which was celebrated in Rome at the end of March and involved people dressing up in disguises. There's also speculation that April Fools' Day was tied to the vernal equinox, or first day of spring in the Northern Hemisphere, when Mother Nature fooled people with changing, unpredictable weather.

April Fools' Day spread throughout Britain during the 18th century. In Scotland, the tradition became a two-day event, starting with "hunting the gowk," in which people were sent on phony errands (gowk is a word for cuckoo bird, a symbol for fool) and followed by Tailie Day, which involved pranks played on people's derrieres, such as pinning fake tails or "kick me" signs on them.

In modern times, people have gone to great lengths to create elaborate April Fools' Day hoaxes. Newspapers, radio and TV stations and Web sites have participated in the April 1 tradition of reporting outrageous fictional claims that have fooled their audiences. In 1957, the BBC reported that Swiss farmers were experiencing a record spaghetti crop and showed footage of people harvesting noodles from trees; numerous viewers were fooled. In 1985, Sports Illustrated tricked many of its readers when it ran a made-up article about a rookie pitcher named Sidd Finch who could throw a fastball over 168 miles per hour. In 1996, Taco Bell, the fast-food restaurant chain, duped people when it announced it had agreed to purchase Philadelphia's Liberty Bell and intended to rename it the Taco Liberty Bell. In 1998, after Burger King advertised a "Left-Handed Whopper," scores of clueless customers requested the fake sandwich.
