Swearing-in ceremony

I was thorougly bored and home-alone yesterday, so I thought it would actually be a good time pass to watch the swearing in ceremony of all the ministers of 'Team Manmohan". And I was right! Watte time pass!

Now I REALLY know why Prathibha Patil is fit to be the President. If being President means just signing a few papers, and saying 'I' or 'Mein' or 'Wait Wait Wait' when somebody forgets to wait for her to say 'I' or 'Mein', then even I could be President and that is saying something!

This one minister Narayanaswamy fumbled with his papers and pleaded for the President to start a bit late. Another minister whose name I forgot, started taking the oath before the President began, and he kept apologising profusely..saying 'Sorry Madam, Sorry Madam'. People started laughing.

Some people took oath in Hindi and some in English. Rahul's young brigade(read Jyotiraditya Scindia, Sachin Pilot and Jitin Prasada) took the oath in Hindi. (Did I mention Scindia is my latest crush? :P)
Englipish was punished heavily. A lot of people said 'constitusan' 'affecsan' 'gaat'(got) and the like.

Sangma, 28, came in dressed neatly and was OBVIOUSLY nervous.

MK Stalin sat next to Rahul Gandhi and kept talking animatedly. The Congress president and the Prime minister sat next to each other, serenely looking at the proceedings. Raja was sitting in one end of the row, with Maran in the other row, apparently sitting next to each other. MK Azhagiri was sitting in the row behind Raja. Also spotted were Azhagiri's son, mother and other kith and kin. Sachin Pilot's super head gear was reminiscent of his dad(appa's comment)

All in all, a very interesting show on TV.

My Weirdest dream

Ok... get this. (Warning: It is a very Bwack dream). I am fully pregnant, and I go to this hospital to deliver the baby. The doctors there(I think one of the doctor people was some person I know....I forgot) give me some medicines. I'm standing in the top step of these black stairs, and then I start puking...puking as in puking very badly(Remember Ron vomitting slugs into a tankard?) and then, I puke the baby out. Yeah...I actually throw up a baby. (What an easy way to deliver a baby I say!) The baby falls out in the last but one step. Then I see how kutti a baby can be...then someone takes the baby in hands. It's a girl... nice Indian colour, and it has gold ear rings, with a black bindhi in it. I go out to inform the happy news to everyone. I run into my college corridor coming through the back gate near the VP's office(near the office, near the lift, where they have these sports trophies) and see my maama.(who is no more by the way!). I tell him, "It's a girl". He says, "Is she dead?". I get hurt, and run off to tell the news to others. After this, my dream either changed or my memory is bad or I woke up...either of the three.

Now this is a very WEIRD dream, and I generally don't remember my dreams this vividly. So I thought I'll do some dream interpretation. Now I want you guys to do me a favor. Just read all these separate interpretations and come up with a combined interpretation of my entire dream(if you are as jobless as me, that is!) I've highlighted some things that seem likely. Here goes

To dream that you are pregnant, symbolizes an aspect of yourself or some aspect of your personal life that is growing and developing. You may not be ready to talk about it or act on it. This may also represent the birth of a new idea, direction, project or goal.

To dream that you are in college, indicates that you are going through some social or cultural changes. You want to expand your knowledge and awareness. It also suggests that now is a good time for you to experiment and try new things. If you had gone to college in your past, then also consider your personal experiences and memories of your college days. Alternatively, it suggests that you will achieve your goals through perseverance and hard work. The dream may be brought on by some stress in your life.

To see the dead in your dream, forewarns that you are being influenced by negative people and are hanging around the wrong crowd.

To see a baby in your dream, signifies innocence, warmth and new beginnings. Babies symbolize something in your own inner nature that is pure, vulnerable, helpless and/or uncorrupted. If you find a baby in your dream, then it suggests that you have acknowledged your hidden potential. If you dream that you are on your way to the hospital to have a baby, then it signifies your issues of dependency and your desire to be completely care for. Perhaps you are trying to get out of some responsibility.

To dream that you are vomiting, indicates that you need to reject or discard an aspect of your life that is revolting. There are some emotions or concepts that you need to confront and then let go.

To dream that you are walking down a flight of stairs, represents your repressed thoughts. It suggests that you are going into your unconscious. It also refers to setbacks that you will experience in your life.

Some of these interpretations ACTUALLY make a lot of sense to me!
