Today was one of those rare days when I woke and switched on the telly while my brain was still half asleep. VH1 full blast and lo behold, oneof my favourite band THE PRODIGY came on with Omen. Man, what a super brilliant way to start the day. I was jumping all over the bed with Omen blasting...things falling off the TV...some songs just do that to you.

The Prodigy take me back to good ol Pune days. Those when I would be zooming up and down on my Kinetic Honda and people would complain to Anna that your daughter drives too rashly. Those days of going triple riding to outskirts of Pune with N, Tiks and me....rain dancing. Those rave rain dance parties were the best. It was so difficult to get an invite and Tiks some how always always managed. The idea was to just get high on absolutely awesome rave and techno music. The dance floor would have continuous down pour of water and all of us dancing under neath it for hours. One just didn't care of about make up, clothes or shoes

Then N would drive us back...wet and cold...all 3 of us screaming on top our lungs...laughing...freezing...joyous. Then as quietly as he could he would put off the bike a few yards away from Tiks and my respective home. Drop us home at 4 in the morning and quietly drive off.

Firestarter song took me through my first year of working as well. I would listen to " smack my bitch up" right on my desk at work the entire day long. Till today all the guys from Grey call me Techno coz of the music playing on my desk. All the rock band lovers hated my guts : )

The Prodigy first album is seared in my brain for life. Fat of the Land.

What great memories of the good ol days of Techno and Rave. Tiks and I OWNED 10 downing street. We would enter the pub and the music would change. The DJ was a great fan of ours and trust me when I say, we OWNED the Dance Floor! Back then D, tiks and I were the ONLY ones who ever got to have a tab running at the Pub. Rest were told to pay now or bugger off. Almost all thought we gals were on some heavy duty dope or something but trust me it almost always Classic ultra milds, Old Monk straight from the bottle and Awesome rave and techno music.

We were high on Music. We were the Fire starters of Pune!

I am just so happy to have woken up to The Prodigy today, so what if it wasn't Firestarter. I know I am the Firestarter!!

Music is the window to our soul...I wonder wots in mine. Am I bad gal gone good : ) A Seed for thought?!

You better lose yourself in the music, the moment

You own it, you better never let it go

You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow

This opportunity comes once in a lifetime ...yo
