Good read :)
I liked this line:
"All women are equal, but some are just more fat, or more talkative or more irritating or more pleasing than the others. Each comes with baggage, and unless the baggage has same name as you, RUN. Else RUN FASTER"

Dude, your girl-obsession reminds me of my days in college :)

I read somewhere that a man's life has phases of singlemindedness
Phase A: play play play
Phase B: sex sex sex
Phase C: money money money

But cheer up. These days, there is virtual solace at hand - you can have a temporary digital consort in a fantasy world like secondlife or something, maybe? Those come with no strings attached, you know, and may help you in your struggle to stay grounded in brahmacharyashram.

Amit's comment reminds me of a joke/pj(if you want to call it):

How does a Sadhu resist women?
By saying Ohm Ohm Ohm

Had to leave a footprint behind, so here goes :-

It probably is not news to you that your writing does make for an interesting read...just wanted to let you know that.

And to think I stumbled across your Sulekha blog while searching for the lyrics of a song, lol...

Just curiosity : what graduation do you keep targetting?

Cheerio,
SK.

Thanks guys for wishes:)

I hope to finish my PhD. After five years in graduate school (with two MS garnered in the meanwhile), and overall more than two decades of schooling, I demand a release from my studenthood.
