50 or less: Thanks for answering honestly. Now get yourself a shrink, quick!
51-70: When it comes to understanding human emotions, you'd have better luck understanding Chinese.
71-90: You've got more emotional intelligence than the average frat boy. Barely.
91-110: You're average. It's easy to predict how you'll react to things. But anyone could have guessed that.
111-130: You usually have it going on emotionally, but roadblocks tend to land you on your butt.
131-150: You are remarkable when it comes to relating with others. Only the biggest losers get under your skin.
150+: Two possibilities - you've either out "Dr. Phil-ed" Dr. Phil... or you're a dirty liar.
Since a lot have been written by some fellow blogger about iron maiden, its time I wrote something in this topic.
IRON MAIDEN, formed in1975, is one of the most successful and influential bands in the heavy metal genre, selling over 70 million albums world-wide. Iron Maiden has so far released 13 studio albums (with number 14 due out this September), four 'best of' compilations, nine live albums, and four boxed sets. They won the Ivor Novello Award for international achievement in 2000.
Iron Maiden has achieved international fame with its distinctive style. Their blend of heavy metal, highly melodic riffs and intelligent lyrics has become instantly recognizable. The band is also renowned for their down to earth and genuine approach towards their music, their impressive and energetic stage shows and their openness and dedication towards their fans.

Son: "Daddy, may I ask you a question"
Daddy: "Yeah sure, what it is?"
Son: "Dad, how much do you make an hour"
Daddy: "That's none of your business. Why do you ask such a thing?"
Son: "I just want to know. Please tell me, how much do you make an hour?"
Daddy: "I make Rs. 500 an hour"
"Oh", the little boy replied, with his head down.
Looking up, he said, "Dad, may I please borrow Rs. 300?"
The father was furious,
"if the only reason you asked that is so you can borrow some moneyto buy a silly toy or other nonsense, then march yourself to your room and go to bed.Think why you are being so selfish. I work hard everyday for such this childish behavior"
The little boy quietly went to his room and shut the door.
The man sat down and started to get even angrier about the little boy's questions.How dare he ask such questions only to get some money?After about an hour or so, the man had calmed down,and started to think:"May be there was something he really needed to buy with thatRs. 300 and he really didn't ask for money very often!"
The man went to the door of little boy's room and opened the door.
"Are you asleep, son?" He asked.
"No daddy, I'm awake," replied the boy.
"I've been thinking, may be I was too hard on you earlier", said the man,"It's been a long day and I took out my aggravation on you.Here's the Rs.300 you asked for"
The little boy sat straight up, smiling "oh thank you dad!" He yelled.
Then, reaching under his pillow he pulled some crippled up notes.The man, seeing that the boy already had money, started to get angry again.
The little boy slowly counted out his money, then looked up at his father.
"Why do you want money if you already had some?" the father grumbled.
"Because I didn't have enough, but now I do," the little boy replied.
"Daddy I have Rs. 500 now. Can I buy an hour of your time?Please come home early tomorrow. I would like to have dinner with you."

Why are looks so decieving?? Why do we happen to judge a person by our first encounter with him/her and then seem to interact with him/her according to that and finally when we come to know the person more and more, we find that are mistaken???
Hold every person close to your heart
because you might wake up one day
and realize that you've lost a diamond,
While you were busy collecting stones......
Love at the lips was touch
As sweet as I could bear;
And once that seemed too much;
I lived on air.
That crossed me from sweet things,
The flow of - was it musk
From hidden grapevine springs
Down hill at dusk?
I had the swirl and ache
From sprays of honeysuckle
That when they re gathered shake
Dew on the knuckle.
I craved strong sweets, but those
Seemed strong when I was young;
The petal of the rose
It was that stung.
Now no joy but lacks salt
That is not dashed with pain
And weariness and fault;
I crave the stain.
Of tears, the aftermark
Of almost too much love,
The sweet of bitter bark
And burning clove.
When stiff and sore and scarred
I take away my hand
From leaning on it hard
In grass and sand.
The hurt is not enough:
I long for weight and strength
To feel the earth as rough
To all my length.
Ok Ok Ok...... that was a bit how the world around me is going on. My life is crooning the same old monophonic ringtone....
Organic Chemistry is getting tougher. The ketones and aldehydes are screwing my already screwed-up brain. As such this organic chemistry does not get into my head and now with the recent incidents, concerning this subject, has developed a distaste for the subject itself, if not studies altogether.
A couple of week earlier, our "Beloved" Gautam Das, with his sub-standard Xeroxed papers, encrypted with Egyptian inscriptions (representing organic molecules), made an earnest effort to grill our asses with the longest available AFRICAN BAMBOOS.
Then Doctor Supriyo Ghosh, the genius of his own kind, the man with the famous "Amra ......" philosophy, made a befitting follow through, garnishing the egyptian dish with Spanish spices and Mexican salads (courtesy: Olive Sen ), injuring our already-wounded asses even before they could heal. This man took two tests in two consecutive weeks and both the tests sucked a good time.
By my previous experiences abt GD's tests, I had developed a kind of mental shock absorber which helped me not to give a damn to these tests. Basically, I feel that Gd's tests are complete time wastes coz all the man intends to assess is nt how much you know but how much you dont. His question papers are nothin but an exhibition of the man's weird knowledge and an index to what is gonna be taught in the future in his classes as the stuffs asked by him in tests are taught by him later. So I have developed my own ways of handling his tests. Here they go......
1. Dont think abt the test as a test bcos they are not. Think them as compulsory time waste.
2. Stay cool and dont take chaap.
3. Dont try to study too hard for the test bcos in any case you simply cannnot do well. The man will always ask stuffs you dont know and even if you think you know them, the original answer is just the opposite of wat you think.
4. Revise your basics, atleast this will help in other tests.
5. During the exam, answer all you can quickly and get the hell out of the room as soon as possible.
6. After that enjoy a splendid chicken roll and coke.
7. If you have got a lot of time after the test, you can enjoy the latest bollywood flick at NAVINA, and if you are lucky enough to possess an original PAAPI MON, then Bhavani Cinemas is the place you need.
8. Or else if you are too frustrated with the test and your eyes are tired with the EYESORES in the room, take the next metro n go to Park Street n bindaas........
9. Have a good time with your frnds but dont discuss abt the test.
10. Dont ever think abt the marks u gonna score, coz you will get them after 6 months. (GD is the lazier than ME!!!!!!!!!!! )
That goes with GD's tests, but Supriyo Ghosh??????
This man always took realistic tests which helped us a lot. Obviously they were difficult and you cannot expect lollipops if you are an IIT aspirant.
But what the hell is wrong with him now???????? Why has he all of a sudden developed an insatiable desire to prove that we are underperformers?????
His tests are also becoming unrealistic. Last month he delivered an awfully difficult physics paper and even though I solved one of the sums by some weird means, he didnt give me marks!!!!!!!!!!
Didn't Ritam Roychoudhury say, "Everything is fair in love, war and MCQ competitive examinations"?????
So why the hell was I refused marks when I got my answer all ryt??????????
Now his "Amra enechi....." formula is the root of all problems.
Suddenly this man decides he is gonna take Maths and Chemistry tests also.
Ok. Fine. No problem. But......
Then enter OLIVE SEN.
Supriyo Ghosh's HOME PRODUCTION, 'ex-student', curerently in IIT.
This dude gets the responsibility of making question papers and the result--- another couple of BAMBOOS !!!!!!!!!!!!
Now Mr. OLIVE SEN,
What the hell is your god damned problem, Sir?????? Have some lack in life???????? Obviously, I agree that IITs arent the best place to have girlfrnds but that doesnt mean you gotta open the safety valve of your life's frustration on us. And if you have such an insatiable desire to show your IIT knowledge, try them against ppl of your own callibre. Why the fu** are you bent on proving us underdogs???????????
The worse thing abt the whole story is that if you are happy that your nightmares are already over, then for your kind information, there are more tests coming up.
DAMN IT. Just DAMN IT...
This is taxing my brains too much. Heard about "Life is a test, ...." , but this is the opposite "Tests are life..".
Only if I could bunk all this....
" Goli maro duniya ko, Khush raho na yaar.....",
only if.........Sharapova or may be Vaidisova....... ;-)
like the asymptotes of a hyperbola..
" Fantasy and Reality,
Meet only at infinity".
Till then....... EYESORES,school, Supriyo, GD, Ritam, FIITJEE and exams, exams n exams...............
A special name worth mentioning in this respect, ANSHUMAN DIDWANIA.This guy actually drove the idea of blogging into me, calling me "LAZY" n stuffs for nt writing. Hey man...THANKS A LOT!!!!!!!
