Warning: This is a blog that lacks intellectuality. My levels of IQ stand as lofty as that of Paris Hilton's pet pomeranian and my knowledge of current affairs is as deep as Mandira Bedi's of cricket. I mostly ramble about the trivialities of my everyday life, F.R.I.E.N.D.S, friends n family, movies, cricket; basically thoughts that would enter the mind of any Sita, Gita or Rita.

Note: I was busy drooling over the pages of Playboy during my English classes in school. So please bare with any grammatical blunders or the obvious lack of classic literary writing. (I was a little confused between the selection of 'bear' and 'bare' in the sentence above so I resorted to my favorite inky-pinky-ponky routine)

If you happen to pass by, feel free to register your presence. coz yeh duniya bahot chhoti hai aur yeh zindagi bahot lambi. Kya pata, someday somewhere, you and I might end up discussing about it over a cup of garam garam masala tea.

The chosen one

In response to Stupidosaur's comment on the previous post:

Yes, the header pic was taken after I joined the IT industry :)

And lately I have been inspired by the Bolly guys getting various sized packs. Aamir survived on some 16-18 odd egg whites per day. I too am following suit when it comes to the diet. Me n my roomie hogged 18 eggs - whites, yolks, everything - in the form of omlets and egg bhurji for lunch!!

However when it comes to Aamir n me, there is one small difference. Aamir went for the eight packs. I am concentrating on just one pack ;)

PS: I think I will have to start doing some serious workout (read light jogging in the beautiful Bangalore weather) before people start rolling me over for games of football :(

All weddings are similar, but every marriage is different.
- John Berger

Today, I raise a toast. To the journey that was started 25 years ago. To 25 years of ups and downs, of blending and bonding, of agreeing and arguing. To 25 years of togetherness. Cheers.

In the years to come, if I can raise a child half as well as you Pa, and if I can love my child half as much as you Ma, I would be very very proud of myself.

No matter how much I grow up, I shall always be your lil boy. Wishing you both a glittering happy anniversary. Love you both.

Build a Titanic.

Make sure there are no lifeboats on board.

Lock Mr. X* in one of the rooms. Preferably in a room that is farthest from the deck.

Send the key of that room in an unmanned spacecraft to the moon. Mars would be even better.

Set the ship on sail.

Have an automated steering system which can maneuver the ship towards the biggest iceberg in the ocean.

This ultra modern hi-fi steering system should also avoid the ship from being in the vicinity of any other ships which can come to the rescue.

If everything goes according to plan, mission accomplished. The world shall live in peace.


* X = John Abraham.

You will be able to empathize with me if you happen to watch a movie called No smoking.

"He who thought money was everything certainly never had any friends..."

Two wonderful bloggers Sarath and HP were brave enough to publicly admit that I am a friend of theirs. Thank u guys. Muaahhhh :)

The tag rules include nominating 5 other blogs with the award. But that's just not possible. I mean just 5! Come on!! Instead I want to share this award with all my dear readers. May we indeed remain friends forever. And may the madness never stop :)

This tag also has a Quotations Tag where one has to write one's favorite quotes. Before writing that, let me tell you something about HP:

She is a F.R.I.E.N.D.S fanatic. She loves Calvin and Hobbes. She is very good at multitasking. She is a very good photographer. She is a Cancerian.

Bottom line: She is a she.

Now as for the quotes, I could not recollect many. Below are some of the few that came to my mind:

"John, on your death bed, you will not wish you had spent more time in office."
- The Monk who sold his Ferrari.

"It is our choices, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities."
- Albus Dumbledore

"A man who doesn't spend time with his family can never be a real man."
- The Godfather

"I'm going for second," he said. "Today we went to the moon and saw the astronaut"
- The cyclist Beloki on Lance Armstrong in Every Second Counts

"When we talk about the poor, so often it is talk about getting them off the streets or getting them a job, so they don't starve. But we never talk about getting excellence for the poor."
- The World is Flat

I tag the following people with the Quotations Tag:

Sayesha - who better than to tag an editor ;)
Abhinav - dude, get the comp working fast. Or I'll send Arnie to get you back :D
Bhai with chai - please do not include any parser/lex related quotes :P
Homer - you need to post something on the blog alright Ms India ;)
Think tank - this tag might help with the writer's block
