Happy New Year!!!!

This would probably be my last post for the year 2010, so after making the wish list, next logical thing would have been making "RESOLUTIONS" for 2011.But to be honest, i have stopped making this new year resolutions, for the obvious reason that i am pathetic at keeping up with them.  For the 15 th day itself i break most of them and in a month or so they vanish completely from my memory (I got inspired from gajini way b4 it was even released!!!! The short term memory loss u c !!)
                 So i finally decided some years earlier, no more waste of time making and breaking these resolutions for me (Sigh!!!! What a relief). But it didn't stop me from wondering how so many people out there were so good at not just making them but were also able to stick by them .(Wish had some if not much, PATIENCE!!! )I one year so badly failed at keeping up with my resolutions and actually thought about going to all my friends and taking notes on how they are able to manage their resolutions.But again failed miserably in that also, so no notes for future reference,and i am back to square one.

 Not to mention but making and breaking resolutions has its own fun. This used to be one of my favorite time pass, sitting down and going through the resolutions that i made last year, it used to make me laugh looking at some of them, coz they used to be so weird but still so much sincerity went into framing them!!!!

 Alas!! i will miss that fun ride this year, but in case any of you people had made it please do take that list out and ponder or act or simply laugh on them.
Happy resolutions 2011!!!!!!!!!!

Just like that-2

Some beautiful words written by someone( I don't know the author, but whoever it is ,want to acknowledge him/her for the amazing work)
" People are often unreasonable, illogical and self centered ; forgive them anyways,
 If you are kind people may accuse you of selfish ulterior motives; be kind anyways,
 If you are successful , you will win some false frndz and some true enemies; succeed anyways,
 If you r honest & frank,ppl may cheat you; be honest anyways,
 Wht u spend yrs building,someone might destroy overnight;build anyways,
 If you find serenity & happiness,they may be jealous; be happy anyways,
 The gud u do today, ppl will often 4get tomorrow; do gud anyways,
 Give the world the best u 've, nd it may never be enough, give the world the best nyways,
You see in final analysis, it is between you and god; it was never between you and them anyways."

I often read this ,when i am upset on someone or something seems going wrong, and it works wonders for me,Hope it does for you as well!!!!!!!

5.To prepare and clear one entrance exam  (Any of the tough ones!!!!!)

6.To build a bungalow and do the interiors exactly d way i want

                   7.To learn at least one dance form    

8. To read as many books as possible

"Almost Single"

Read a new book today, much talked about ,"Almost single" !!!!! But much to my disappointment, i didn't quite like it. This can be due to one more fact ,that the previous pick was Khalid Hosseini's "Thousand splendid suns"........ , and i must say the hangover was still there, and hence probably i can say my selection of 'which book to follow  next' went wrong.

 I agree to a comment given on the front page -"its like 'sex in the city', except the fact that the city is new delhi".The book easily gives you an option of skip reading, you can easily skip pages (not even paragraphs!!!)  and still not loose the context. Based in the backdrop of delhi , but provides no glimpse or potrait of the city (might be the author didn't want to do that, but i would ve appreciated that)
                 The language is simple and easy to read. The story line has nothing exceptional or extraordinary about it, but yes there are quite a few sections you can relate to.
If you are travelling , just lazing around , it could be a good pick, but definitely nothing more than that!!!

But yes not to overlook the fact, that its advaita's first attempt to literary writing, and for that she definitely gets some more brownie points!!!  Looking forward to some more nicer things coming from her!!!!

Just like that!!!!

Here are some lines that i wrote some time back and since had no topic in mind for the post, thought will share the same here:

 "It all may sound very routine & heard, 
But for me all this is unsaid & undone,
I never felt the way for anyone,the way i feel fr you,
You showed me a world that was totally new.

 Certain confessions, few secrets & some feelings r to be told,
You bring the warmth to me, when everything is so cold,
You bring the twinkle in my eyes,
 The truth i trust on,in this world of lies.

I wait for the time we will be together again,
When despite the blazing sun its going to rain,
I don't recall how long has been this wait,
But just a thot of you brings smile, even when nothing is goin gr8, 

Its impossible not to think of you, no matter how much i try,
 You are my friend ,well wisher a shoulder to cry,
People who find true luv are few,
 I feel lucky, i feel blessed, that i found that with you."

The Bicycle days!!!!!!!

Yesterday i came across a hoarding displaying the latest plays being staged in various places in Bengaluru, one of them was named "The Bicycle days" .The first thing that striked me was my first bicycle that my papa gifted me. I still remember everything about it ,the color,the patterns,the design, all of it perfectly. It was something i treasured ,coz it was something i wanted from a long time and got only when i managed a good 86% in my exams( thts the way i got most of my gifts from my papa!!!!).

I also remember the times i was without a bicycle, and so were most of my friends, since we were kiddos and didnt knew how to ride one, so we used to rent them (Most of the kiddos on block today won't even know that such sort of arrangement ever existed, but yes its not fictitious, we actually did that). I can even recall the rate, it was some Re 1 per hour, unthinkable these days, but the fun was unmeasurable. All 6-7 of us, riding those bicycles, and roaming around ,trying to make most of that Re 1.

I wonder how kids today (most of them) don't realise the importance of little pleasures in life. They get most of the things without  even uttering the name of the it, their parents are generous enough to make sure everything new is with their kids. Ofcourse the intention is humble, all parents wants their kids to get the best in the world, but in doing this they somewhere forget the importance of small pleasures, small joys of life.

                                The time when my dad told me that he will give me a thing only when i got some specific marks in exams( i don't know what weird calculations he made ,and arrived on a certain cut off!!!!) actually was irritating that time but later i realized it actually made me perform, and i felt i deserved the gift, i had worked hard for it, so in a way he taught me to earn much early in my life.

 The rented bicycle seemed too much a hassle that time, but now if i look back ,it actually made us think as if we all were equal, no comparison of who owned what, which brand,which color, what cost, nothing, simply Re 1 for everyone.A lesson of equality.

The good old bicycle days are over, now the kids have newer gadgets, newer electronics, and what not to entertain themselves, but then parents need to think, where's the learning?

Alice in Wonderland!!!!

Last evening me and anu went out for doing some tafari around our PG accomodation , as our TV was not working and we had nothing else to do (I sometimes think as if i am the most fokat soul on the face of this earth, with time for almost every other weird stuff possible). Roaming around we just went to a certain area nearby we had never earlier seen and were literally taken aback by the beautiful victorian style bungalows that we saw.

 Anu-  Angie ye kaun si jagah he???

me- Yaar its so damn beautiful na?

Anu- Ha yaar, hum kitne pagal he, hum pahle kyu nahi aaye yaha?

Me- TV hone ka disadvantage, i guess!!!

Anu- Ye to aise lagta he jaise........???

Me-"Alice in wonderland", haina (Knew she ll say yes, bt still had to confirm)

Anu- HAAAAaaaaaaaa !!!!!!

And than all that varied expressions of amazement and excitement (with all watchmen giving us looks making us feel a little embarrased!!!) increased when we found this beautiful small little "Terrace cafe". It was recently inaugurated and was owned by an uncle who was sweet enough to listen to all the gyan that we gave him, like what all things he can add to the menu ( Being an MBA and that too from Indore,giving business proposals related to food is a fundamental right) to the taste of coffee we had.

It was really as if we had gone into the story of Alice in wonderland ,enjoying our coffee the way alice enjoyed her tea with the rabbits (Ofcourse the rabbits were absent in our case), it was a perfect unwinding act we could have done.

                   Sometimes its really refreshing to be just away from your regular entertainment devices, your TV, your laptop, your ipod, and do something crazy ,something kiddish ,something that makes you smile, just like that!!!!!
