I started going in the normal BMTC bus recently. Equipped with my headphones and phone too large for normal hands and an almost empty bag, I stand out like a baby with a lollipop in a strip club. From the comforts of the AC in a Volvo bus to the cooling of the body from another man’s sweat is not something a person will call pleasant. As much as I want to bring out some positive point about this journey to make your eyes watery which will result in you sharing this with your friends who mostly don’t give a F (lol I said F instead of fuck) about you or your life unless you are a girl and is posting photos of your cleavage ; that’s not going to be case. In my experience, I will be an entitled spoiled kid.
It’s been three days since I removed the game which became an essential part of my daily life, something that had to be given time to no matter how busy, tired I was. Unlike many of the games I have played during my short life, Dota 2 has taken up most of my time – more than 1600 hours. It all started with a beta key for the game and then it sucked me in like no game has ever done before.
For the uninitiated, I shall give you some insight. Dota belongs to the MOBA ( Multiplayer Online Battle Arena ) genre. It’s complex and will take around 60 hours for someone to learn the basics of the game. The objective is simple – destroy the enemy stronghold along with your 4 team mates before the enemy team destroys yours. Like I said objective is simple but the game isn’t. I have never come across a game where there are so many things to calculate take into consideration.
So I have acquired the Humble Origin Bundle which is an amazing deal for the money. But I realized I don’t need the Origin serial codes as I will never download it and then download the games, so I decided to give those keys away to someone who can’t acquire the bundle for some reason. So just leave a comment if you want it and I will send you the code for whatever game from the bundle you asked for. But if you can buy it then do so as they need the money or you have the option to give it to charity.
I am not at all good at coming up with titles and I know that titles play a major role but hey! I am just not cut out for the title thing or the content.
So I was talking to my mom and realized that she isn’t in touch with any of her friends. Why? Well at her age people were just married off and telephones weren’t common and the popular way to keep in touch was through letters. Now imagine that from the typical Indian woman’s perspective who is a housewife and not living in a city. So you are just married off after your education and at times to some place which is quite far away from home. I really feel sad for my mom in that way. She doesn’t have any way to get in touch with her friends as it’s too late. We all have friends to bitch about our sad events and everything to. But what about those who doesn’t ? Is life fair that way ? I am sure all of us have stuff/secrets which we won’t share with anyone other than our best friend but what about the people who don’t have that best friend? I am not talking about my mom here, I know about people who doesn’t have any friends. I never thought that was possible, I might not be the guy with the best socializing skills but I am not so bad at it either, so the whole possibility of a person not having a friend never even took place in my head.
