Has Anyone seen Godot?

I'm assuming (yes i know. One should not assume any such thing), but I AM assuming most of you'll have read Waiting for Godot. I have written a play called "death of a Godot". I plan to put this up around the end of Dec or early Jan.

Just for the record, roles are open. I need 4 actors. That is, If I decide NOT to act, for some reason. So if you feel like some acting, do let me know. I dont think we need any auditions. I have faith in JU.

DO let me know.

On Blabbermouth

“A compelling tour-de-bore from a major new and big mouth.”
- Butt Seriously

A Letter to the Author

Dear Mr. Dasgupta,
First of all, Blabberwocky is somewhat disturbed at this turn of events. Your brilliantly-researched new expose of life in JUDE – using material gathered while dating all of five women to write a “book” (HO HO HO… ahem) is inspired. We at Blabberwocky could never have thought of this act of imaginative innovation – your expose, as we were saying, while being compelling (several readers have been compelled to keep pillows at hand while reading it), is guilty of an act of gross negligence. You have failed to acknowledge the seminal influence of Blabberwocky apropos of the nomenclature of your “book” (HO HO HO… ahem). We at Blabberwocky hereby inform you that we have as yet received no royalty for your use of the term “blabber” in your title. According to our calculations, you owe us exactly 25p – @ 1% royalty on every title sold, you seem to have sold precisely one title, at the discounted rate of Rs. 25. (Between us, while this shows a great love for your fellow human being, it might not be such a sound business proposition). We would also be obliged if you could forward us the name and address of this carbon-based biped of reduced noetic abilities that bought your “book” (HO HO HO… ahem) as we are looking to test our newly-developed nerve gas on somebody stupid enough to let us.
We shall be grateful for an early receipt.

Thanking you,
Yours faithfully,

P.S. A minor suggestion, if you will? We recommend you remain anonymous if a second edition comes out. Or perhaps a pseudonym? Egotistical Haverer seems apt to us, but of course it’s your call.

(This is the latest Blab on the Board)

Well, the puja is finally over and college starts again tomorrow.It will be great to be back and see everyone...however,I dread the classes that UG3 will be having for the rest of the month.Tests, term papers, exams...shudder shudder.Not to mention waking up early.I guess all of us feel the same na?As Teleute mentioned today, it would have been fun if we had college during vacation, which would be college but no college.
And maybe you guys cld do something about the actual Blab, the one on the wall I mean.

Will the real dude please stand up?

The world is full of shit. That, whether you choose to ignore it or believe it, is the fact. There is shit all around us.

And the shittiest part is that we walk on it. The shit has become a world. There is no walking space left in our sad lives. We find ourselves walking in a quicksand of shit.

Of mirthless muck.

The more we try and get out of it, the more smelly we become. The more disgusted we get with ourselves. But the funny, and almost ironical thing is that we dont want to get out of it. Habit? Maybe. Maybe we've just got used to being in this mess. We've gotten used to being disgusted. Nothing disgusts us any more.

No one stands up and shouts. There is a multitude. There is a throng. But there is no ONE who stands up and says that he doesnt belong here. That he wants to change anything. Everyone has got used to it. Everyone has become everything he sees.


And yet, the most funniest part, I think is WHY people dont speak out. Because, by speaking out, they would be breaking one of the most fundamental rules of society. The unwritten rule of being a hypochrite.

If they speak out, if they stand up among the throng, they will be expelled from an exile they didnt belong to in the first place.

Why does no one speak out?

Has everyone reconciled themselves to everything?

WHy does no one stand up?

Speak out. It matters.
