Happy Friendships's Day :)!!

Its been days since I wanted to say
and today I feel is the best day
I know I  have been annoying and rude
fought , cried and shouted on you.

I have got busy with my not-so-busy life
And not bothered to talk..
You may not remember me..
That's what  i always thought
And we grew apart ...
But i know,even today if we cross paths
we will be like same old buddies..

Just waiting for that day to arrive !!:)

To all those friends I miss being in touch with!!:)

Happy Friendship's Day:)

Exactly 365 days back....

...Just around this time... I was sitting in the train, Rajdhani to be precise, travelling alone for the first time.. devoid of sleep...contemplating how my new life in a new city would be.And today after a year of experiencing happiness, sadness, anger, frustration, jubilation and what not in Hyderabad, I think I have got more than what I expected. Don't know where the whole year just flew away..the last day in Delhi is still so livid in my memories...

I could see how reluctantly mumma packed my bags,trying to hide her emotions at the same time by being so excited for the new journey I was about to make. My dad who literally cannot live without me, who always felt more pain than myself when I got hurt, who woke up for early morning so that I won't feel lonely while studying for exams...for whom I will always be his "beta"..he put aside all his feeling to let me follow my  dreams!!
My one and only  lovely sis .. who was never my Di.. was always a buddy. We used to shout,scream,love, laugh,shop, hang out together.. she was my life and I was hers..That day she cried when I was packing my bags and at that moment I saw my strength wavering.

But today here I am, writing this post sitting in my room in Hyderabad with my mind fresh with those memories.
No doubt the wonderful time I have had in Hyderabad, the emotions I have experienced, the love,care and affection of friends I have got here is incomparable.But can never ever stop missing the wonderful life I left behind..Love u always MOM , DAD n SIS!!:)

The Dancing Google Doodle!!

I just couldn't stop but smile when I saw Google Dancing !!
Today's Google Doodle celebrates the 117th birthday of the American dancer, teacher, and modern dance choreographer Martha Graham.
The animated doodle created by Ryan Woodward, has a woman dancing to form the letters of ‘Google’. Graham’s influence on dance in America had a huge impact and even today she is revered as one of the greatest dancers.
The search engine's strategy to honour the prominent artists of the world is really commendable.

Osama is Dead, Jokes Aren't!!

So, we all know the BIG news of this year!! OSAMA shot dead by US Army.
And no matter how serious implications this may have, but we humans manage to find humour in anything and everything. Honestly, in my opinion this is far better than scaring people with posting photos of dead Osama's face on FB profiles!!!

This is what I received today as an email:-

Hilarious, isn't it!!! :)

Doing All that in one day...

And how does it make you feel??I would say simply SATIATED!!

How often does it really happen that you feel you have  done everything you thought you would like to do on a particular day. Well today was one such day  of my life !!
And if I could just keep doing that everyday , life would be soo much better !!:)

Hold that thought till I come up with something less crazy than this post :P!!

"Life is not merely a series of meaningless accidents or coincidences,
But rather it is a tapestry of acts that culminate in an exquisite, sublime plan"

Just got over this movie.But my mind is still looming in the lives of Jonathan and Sara....

For those who just like me ( 2 hrs ago :P!!), haven't seen the movie, Its about  a guy and gal  who bump into each other accidentally during Christmas sale and end up spending the whole day together roaming in the City.At the end they let fate decide their destiny by leaving signs behind so that if the other gets hold of it they will be able to contact the other again.

At the end of it, I was just wondering- does it really happen???

You leave things on fate only to realise latter that life could have been better if you wouldn't have let it go. And then go berserk in the pursuit of your lost destiny. But do you always get it back??

Even though I thoroughly enjoyed the movie, I am a little confused what the movie wants to tell. Let the destiny rule your course of life or seize the opportunity when love knocks on your door otherwise you might end up losing it!!!

Ahh some one was right when he said..... Life is a complicated mess!!What do you say?

Back to Books!!

After so much neglect and in-numerous excuses I kept making up in my mind, I have got back  to my supposed first love ..BOOKS!! And this time I hope this goes a long way and I just don't leave things midway. Although  I still have to do something to fix the wandering mind of mine , I know that this is the only time I have. So its a do or die situation... or I should rather call it (MBA)CALL or FALL situation!!:P

Just a short 'n'sweet update!!Keep watching this space for more :)!!

Thats what I listen to...

..when I feel  low and see my determination failing...

Dhundhla jayein jo manzilein ,
Ek pal ko tu nazar jhukaaa...
Jhuk jaye sir jahan wahin,
Milta hai rab ka rastaaa...
Teri Kismat tu badal de,
Rakh Himmat bas chalde!
Tere Saath hi mere Kadmon ke hain nishaann..
Tu naa jane...Aas pass hai Khuda!!!!

Motivating words :)!!!

Partying Hard and Paining Harder!!

So yesterday we had our Project Party at Runway 9!!And why I am writing this post today because the body-ache and swollen feet is not letting me get over it.So I thought why not bring it out here.

This party was long due since our project completed an client implementation successfully and apparently the Client was too happy to continue working with us  (which means more work :( but also more parties ;)!)
And this place Runway 9 is a famous Go Karting place in Hyderabad. And what a thrill it was to just zoom around in that kart vehicle. and somehow I managed to arrange an extra ticket , so i got to experience the adrenaline rush twice!!!:)

And after that we had a game of cricket which was fun too with both the teams employing all sorts of methods of cheating!:P
Not to forget we good some goodies from our project leaders as well!!
Then came the best part when we had an amazing DJ playing all the more amazing songs. And even though
I was wearing heels I couldn't stop myself from grooving!
And this is how I ended up waking with an extremely bad body ache and swollen feet!!And strangely , I am not even regretting it!:)

World Cup 2011 is ours!!

It feels like dream come true, witnessing a World Cup win!!!
And just imagine, if this what more than 100 crores of us  feel , who have practically no contribution in lifting the WORLD CUP ( apart from praying, forwarding some amazing messages around the country and screaming and shouting our hearts out!!!) .Just imagine what  the Dhoni  & Co. would be feeling at this very moment. Surprised, Shocked, Happy, Satisfied???

I think there is no perfect adjective that can describe the feeling!! And  to even imagine being in their shoes is impossible!! Its not just the efforts they did in the last month  that counts, but those that have been going on for years, listening to the wishes of  the crowd of millions, taking on the media criticism, still going on the field and finally realizing the  DREAM that every Indian was praying for !!

Thank you to the whole Team who have given us such amazing moments of joy!!And a special mention to the Little Master , who every body anticipates was playing his last World Cup( I hope its  WRONG!!)

SACHIN, you may not have had the best of your performance in this tournament .. but you will always be our GOD of Cricket!!!:)

And to the Indian Cricket Team ...
"Jiyo Khiladi Wahe Wahe":):)

Landing on Heaven!!!

Yes, you guessed it right ..I am talking about Saddi DELHI!!Finally, I am back at home to take a break from the monotonous work !!

And what an amazing flight I had from Hyderabad.'Cuz of the three reasons, which I'll definitely tell by the end of this post!

Day before I was so anxious,I just wanted to move out of my work place.Something was ringing in my head that probably this would be the last time I am going on vacations to my home town( which I hope comes true and I shift back permanently to my City of Hearts!!)And once I packed all  my bags, I got engulfed by the wonderful thoughts of family and friends!!

So coming back to the three reasons..
First one .. I didn't leave for the airport alone.. as the last two times.. It wasn't all that gloomy to begin with!!

Second , the Spice jet actually added some Spice to my journey since this time there were some male staff on board rather than the over make-upped puffed haired air-hostesses;) !And I bet I saw the Cutest Guy on earth (or practically on air).!:)
I had this Huge laptop bag with me. So instead of keeping it in the cabinet on my own.. I sat on my Window seat with the big bag on my lap to invite the cute guy to offer his help!!(Cribbing at the same time why did  I get my Aisle seat changed !)
But even that didn't turn out well.. since the Uncle next to my seat was so generous to ask me to help put my bag on the rack above!! And I had to oblige.
So, I had no other option but to get engrossed with the book!! Only to realise  that my water bottle was missing and I still had a chance to exchange some words with him!!:)

But the best part was when the lights on the plane were switched off  and and I had the chance to gaze outside!!The ground below looked like a maze of lights forming amazingly beautiful shapes and forms.What a view it was .. wish I could just capture that in my camera!
And as we were landing, I could see tiny slow moving LEDs which were actually cars:P!!I got so engrossed with the view  that I almost forgot about the guy!!:P
And finally when  my feet touched the ground,I just couldn't stop humming.. DDDDD.. Delhi ...DDDelhi..!!

Running Away.....

At one moment I want to stay..
The other, I'm off to somewhere far..
Where i cant even have
a glimpse of my past!!!

Sometimes I talk a lot..
It's just to stop those thoughts!!
Sometimes I'm dead quiet...
'Cuz at those times I have lost my war!!

Don't know what's best for me
Don't know what I should pray for..
The mind and heart
Just stay far apart!!!

Hope I could just tell someone
Its hard to swallow it alone!!
I know it feels stupid to say..
But I feel like running away!!!

The Earthquake and the SuperMoon!!

Its so disheartening to see thousands of people dieing , suffering and waiting helplessly with no real fault of their own. Except they just happened to be at the place Nature played its havoc on.

I feel so sad looking at all those reports and images.And its even more painful to realise that no matter how strongly we feel for them, we can't revert the mis-happenings. We can just hope things would get better as soon as possible with global organisations coming forward to help Japan in this tough time.

I came to know about the happening only at early evening when I overheard some of my colleagues at office talking about it (Ya , I am bad at reading newspapers).It was only after I got back home that I was able to watch the news.And that's when I heard some reporter talking about the Super Moon(term coined by astrologer Richard Nolle)...

The fact that Moon is going to be closest to our Earth and will be in full phase at the same time on March 19,has triggered an argument between astronomers and the astrologers that whether this closeness to Moon has any role in the calamity.

AccuWeather quotes an astronomy blogger,
"There were Super Moons in 1955, 1974, 1992 and 2005. These years had their share of extreme weather and other natural events. Is the Super Moon and these natural occurrences a coincidence? Some would say yes; some would say no. I'm not here to pick sides and say I'm a believer or non-believer in subjects like this..."

There have been documents all sorts of coinciding extreme weather events that have occurred around past Super moons.
Hurricane Katrina made land on the Gulf Coast on Aug. 29, 2005, which was 10 days after the Super Moon for that month. The 1938 New England hurricane happened on Sept. 21, three weeks after a Super Moon. Australia's Hunter River experienced mass flooding and property destruction in February 1955, two whole months before and after bookending Super Moons.The last extreme super moon occurred on January 10, 2005, right around the time of the 9.0 Indonesia earthquake.

Although there are strong facts supporting the concept,there are people who strongly believe them to be nothing more than coincidences and that natural disasters have nothing to with the moon at all.
One of the reason given by the astronomers is that the natural calamities taking place on earth are because of pent up energy below the surface  due to Earth's rotation, the energy radiated by the Sun and many more factors. And the Moon' contribution, if any, is very small compared to these massive factors.(Read more at Bad astronomy)

So the question still remains...whether there is any involvement of Super Moon in the Japan earthquake or whether the proximity of Moon has any legitimate scientific link to Natural Hazards??
After reading so many thoughts in a short while even my head is buzzing. What really is the truth?

This calamity has actually sent out a panic message across the globe.Although nothing really can be done about it.We, humans have the tendency to link events to each other in a strange way even when there is not much of a connection.Skeptics refer to this as "Correlation does not imply causation". In other words, just because two things happen near the same time or place doesn’t mean one actually caused the other. Out of such things are superstitions born.

I have been a strong believer of scientific logic.That's why I think its just a time to keep our calm and strength together and take the necessary precautions to be able to survive in case of any calamity and help whenever the need arises.

"We are not making things better by panicking over something not real."

What say??

Once in a while...

It happens once in a while..
When you feel like the only one around..
You have no reason..
But u still want to cry!!

When you want to be with the One
Who wont tell you to stop...
But will quietly wipe out each drop...
Coming out of your eye!!

Who won't ask you..
To tell something interesting..
But listen to the same things in your life
Like it was new everytime!!

Who will just be..
The easy one to be around..
Even when you won't feel like saying..
but words will  simply pour out!!!

The thoughts keep playing in my mind,
No matter how much I try...
They seem hard to crack...
Don't know why??

The voices are soo clear
Still don't know what they want to Say!!
They keep going round n round..
Making a whirlpool in my mind!!!

Wish my mind was a silicon chip
I could eraze the file of thoughts
Just with a click!!!

Wish my mind was a radio
Switch it on and off..
Atleast I could just tune out those thoughts!!!

But I know Its not so..
Have to just bear them..
Till one day they rest in peace..
and let me go FREE!!!

The Dilemma continues.....

I'll be brutally honest..
At this very point of my life I am not sure about anything in my life!!

Am I satisfied with my job??? Do I want to go ahead with higher studies?? Do I want to go back and work in Delhi? Have I really fallen for somebody?? Do I really like writing or its just this phase?

I don't know answers to any of the above questions.. and I am not even getting hints from around....

I am trying hard to get hold of that " inner voice" ,but I really can't hear it apart from garbled up noises in my mind. To the extent  that I believe it would have been  kind if they were totally absent.It's as if i am just walking on a deserted lane turning aimlessly wherever the road bends!!!!

Its kind of disturbing sometimes, to realise I have already spent almost one third of my life and I am still clueless what I want out of the remaining two third of it!!! 
In simple words, I don't know where my life is heading..(Just like this post!!)

In fact I was more sure about my life when I was giving my 10 n 12th board exams.. huhhh.!!Life really becomes complex at it gets old!!!
Everyday I sit alone, trying to tune into what my mind is wants or what my heart craves for...
But the answers are either impossibly stupid or absent altogether!!

I guess I'll just have to wait for that one clue that will make it clear and give me some, if not all answers, my life needs!!!
Till than I'll be busy Reading, Writing and Dancing to the un-tuned songs of my life !!!:):)

Sometimes its hard to believe...
One can feel soo strong...
Sometimes when you think its forever ..
It takes just a while to part...

Sometimes I talk a lot..
Its just to stop those thoughts !!!
Sometimes I am dead quiet...
'Coz at those times I have lost my war....

Don't know whats best for me
Don't know what I should pray for..
The mind & heart are never at peace..
If only I could figure out...
What they need!!!!

Feels like Deja Vu....

It feels like Deja Vu
'Cuz its been true!!
Somewhere deep down the past lane
I have felt the same....
Only the characters have changed..

I thought life gave me another chance..
But it was too late to realise
That it was just a myth!!!

I have tried to come out
of the Chains of past ...
But now i feel...
It will probably never last!!!!

Strange Saturday: A Boring "Wedding" but a grand "Reception" Dinner!! ;)

So After the freaking Friday here was the weekend and we all friends wanted to make the most out of it!!We had huge hopes from the movie "Tanu weds Manu" 'coz of some rocking songs in the promos and we had booked the tickets in advance.

But we didn't have the slightest idea that it would be such a big disappointment!!!!
I wanted to walk out but somehow we stayed ,in the hope that something will come up to excite us and feel good about the over all picture.But Kangana kept on with her loose acting and loud make up to ruin the efforts being put by supporting cast and Madhavan!!

Then, finally the nightmare got over.We sulked a bit over it,Me doing the most part of it and exaggerating my comments(now I feel Kangana has somehow managed to get into me at that time!!!)
Then we went off to wish one of office friend who was recently gifted with a lovely baby girl 'PARI'!!!
And it was really worth it, seeing the cutie. Although she looked a bit fragile, but that couldn't take away the innocence and the softness from her.I was too scared to even touch her and hurt her!!

And as all this was going on,we all were all having hunger pangs!!So we all headed to Bikanerwala which we heard was near by.But even that 5-10 minutes journey in the auto felt like eternity :P!!And finally we reached.

Personally for me it was heaven to just even enter it..the whole feel of Delhi came back!!!
And i know all delhities (or rather Northies) would identify with me.The whole essence and smell of food like that cannot have that anywhere else in this world!!!
In Delhi, Bikanerwala used to be a regular eating out joint for me and my friends.Now that i was all excited, we ordered loads of food. starting from chole bhature, pav bhaji, dhokla khandwi, aloo tikki, papdi chat and not to forget panipuri!!:)
And although we all gulped everything so fast .. that we were stomach-full very soon,but we couldn't stop but have the desserts.So we had lassi and faluda to just give it a perfect ending!!
And apart we all got ourselves packed a box of sweets as gifts!!;)

So although the "Wedding" wasn't that great,but we thoroughly enjoyed the "RECEPTION" at  Bikanerwala!!:)

I 'll be waiting...

The sun rises and reaches above,
When i wake up,
You are there...
In the thoughts of my mind..
And I wait to see you near!!

Then the day goes by,
And I wish I could stay.
But my mind fights back to make me leave,
'Coz it's difficult to see and bear
That You hardly Care!!

But still the hope is there,
All night I am up...
Just in wait of the Buzz
That is hard to come....

And when i give up fighting 
I just sleep and say in heart that...
I' ll be waiting....

It's a Different Feeling!!!!!

Its a different feeling,
When you turn around....
Don't even say a 'Hi' ..
Just wink with an eye...

And my eyes follow you till the end..
When the hint of your shadow just dissappears..
and smile of my face lasts a mile!!!!:) :)

My creations!!!!:)

A few days back , I posted an ambigram here.. but I am not sure if many people know what it really is.I ll come to that.. but a short story before that...

Only a few people know , that apart from dancing I have another passion . And that is painting.
But some how  in the "Rat Race" to come first everywhere..the paint brushes and the colour pens got ignored..

Some time back in  college, a  junior of mine told me about a new art "AMBIGRAMS". It was not only interesting but challenging with ever new thing you try to create..

To here I was again with my pens and pencils..

"Ambigrams are basically typographical designs which may be read as one or more word in its form as presented but also from another viewpoint , orientation and direction."

Below is one of such art form that i have tried to create...

From the End to the Beginning!!!

I realised that I have stayed away from my blog for too long. So many things have happened since I last wrote.And so much is still going on,which I want to write about.
But that isn't the only reason.

Being at a new place (Although its almost 8 months here) among new people(Even when I have grown close to a few of them), it's difficult to find a person with whom the words could come out without the effort!!

I figured out it was best to talk to my blog, for two simple reasons:-

1) It won't give me raised eyebrows ^ ^ while i talk about some things.
2) And It won't get to know more than what I say from my face...( both things my friends are good at!!!!)

So where should I start from???
The end of college life or the beginning of the office life ....

~~~From spending day and night doing vella panti on campus  to being irritated sitting without work in office
~~~Returning to the same chaotic but cheerful home after college to coming back from office to an empty silent house
~~~From desperately waiting for weekends to end  to go back to college friends.. to having "Thank God its Friday" feeling on almost all Fridays..
~~~From having mom-cooked Rajma Chawal  on Sunday Lunch to making Maggi dishearteningly or skipping lunch altogether

Do i miss my previous life ??
Well can't say about that since there are things that i have started to like...

--->Doing something without giving it too much a thought
--->Staying out of home late night
--->Watching senseless movies for a single reason of having nothing else to do
--->Going out to eat just to try out the new restaurant that has opened down the street( or actually  because I don't feel like cooking at home:P)
--->And saying 'Yes' for things i would have otherwise definitely said no to !!!

The two lives, contradicting though, have now become a part of me.
And I don't want to let go of any one of them.I guess I just want to have... "The Best of Both Worlds" !!!! :)

"Facebook Effect"

Nobody today would deny that Facebook is bringing the world together. Despite its modest beginning as a college project of a Harvard student, Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook has become a powerful tool with unprecedented influence across modern life. It has not only changed the way people communicate today but also how organizations and government reach out to the general public.

It has grown from being restricted only to Harvard crowd to having users spanning across different generations, geographies, cultures and languages. Initially, it started as a plaything among college students. But today, it has become a routine part of lives of millions of people (its membership is now over 400 million).

As a new form of communication, it has lead to strange interpersonal and social effects. The Facebook effect happens when it puts people in touch with each other often unexpectedly, about a common experience, interest, problem or cause. This is because Ideas on Facebook have the ability to rush across groups and to bring awareness simultaneously with ease.

The foundation of this open and transparent communication was put in policy and practice based on real identity. On Facebook, it is important to be your real self without which you will not be able to interact effectively with your friends.
The owners of Facebook have tried to keep Facebook simple, clean and uncluttered while putting innovative ideas and running new applications on it. Through News Feed, Facebook Connect, etc. Facebook has tried to make communication more efficient and intimate.

Since privacy has been a central concern for its users, Facebook has continued to come up with more simplified and improved privacy controls to protect the user data from being misused.

Even though critics continue to argue that the young people spending whole day on Facebook are losing their ability to recognize and experience change and excitement in the real world, the membership has continued to grow. Every month billions of data gets uploaded on Facebook including trivial announcements, birthday greeting, weighty announcements, political provocations, invitations and it is already the largest photo sharing site on internet.

The rate and scale of growth has no doubt raised complicated social, political, regulatory and policy issues But still, Facebook remains one of the biggest expression of globalization today.

If you do not change, you can become extinct!!

A famous quote from Spencer Johnson used in his international bestseller “Who Moved My Cheese” tells us the importance of bringing about the change in and around us.
We as human beings enjoy the most being within our comfort zone. We always want things to remain the same. The sense of certainty gives us a strange pleasure. On the other hand any kind of changes brings along fear and anxiety. That is the prime reason why we resist any major changes coming our way. We always think we can get away with it. And when the situations turn unfavorable, instead of accepting the change we enter the denial mood and start blaming things in and around us.
But we forget that if there is no change there is no improvement as well. The sameness may be enjoyable for a while but after a point of time it becomes monotonous. It stagnate our life and challenges the mere purpose of our existence in this world.
On the other hand, change brings about a new dimension to our life. Not all changes seem positive and healthy at the beginning but as we move ahead they offer us new opportunities to grow and flourish. The new challenges that it brings in front of us show us a new direction. If only we trust ourselves and move ahead, a simple change can bring out the best in us.
In the book, Hem undergoes the denial mode and isn’t ready to accept the absence of cheese. Even after a lot of persuasion by Haw, he fails to look at the new situation and the possibility of something better lying ahead of it. Whereas Haw overcomes his fear and moves on to find a new Cheese station full of cheese.
Even Darwin’s theory of evolution points out this fact. The theory of survival of the fittest states that the individuals who best adapt to the environment are the ones who will most likely survive. They possess variations that give that give them a selective advantage.
Similarly the sooner a person accepts the change, the better are his chances to take the advantage of it. Just like Darwin said once,
“It is not the strongest of the species that survives, or the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is the most adaptable to change.”
