I was playing this track, Ajnabi from the Kunal Khemu starrer Superstar on my PC.






And again.


Trust me, every time I listen to this song, I question the purpose of my existence. Am I worthy of the 10x12 ft room (Pune), 40x60 ft house (Bangalore) I occupy? Do I deserve a meaty four grand every month as pocket money? Am I worthy of adding another question questioning purpose or should I get to the point?

The answer is on my lips, or in this case, my fingertips.


We're all here to do justice to the purpose of our existence. Yes. It's true. That's why we're here.

The first ancestor (We'll call him Mr. K) of my breed was born to add the initial K to my name (Abhinandan K.S). His kids were born to add Mr. K's name as their father's name in their names. More generations were generated just to retain the K as an initial. Later, my great-great-great grandmothers were born to produce a string of kids. And my great-great-grandmothers and great-grandmothers joined in to contribute soon after.

But what was common among these venerable ladies and gentlemen? Purpose. Be it making my identity so outrageously South Indian or ensuring that people around me always remain baffled about why K stands for what it stands for, these people nailed it!

That's that. Now, here's a bit on about my purpose of living. We're nearing the end of the February and I've not:
1. blogged even once this year.
2. been writing stories like I used to.
3. been reading comics,
4. been following cricket.
5. visited Bangalore. 
6. laughed so much I cried.

It's then I realize the purpose of this blog. If you scroll up to the top of this page and see, etched right under the title, 'Blog in a Spot' is 'Joie de vi-vre. n. Hearty or carefree enjoyment of life.'


This time I nailed it. That's the purpose of my life :)


  1. Love the post :)

    We have the same initials! A, S & K!

  2. Great job with the post. But seems like a completely absurd post since you're purpose was already mentioned above
