Few hours from New Land

December gone... new year started & now even it is getting old...
Life's been pacey or may be I have been championing worthless time passing tricks. Have been complete vela since more than a month. In between I had an awesome time with family at Jaisalmer. Desert, most decent people around, soothing weather & cuddled around with parents & sis, it really felt gooood. Ka se nayi naukri, nayi duniya, nayi country... Within few hours it'll be few seas away I can be found. Hum chale...ab maarta hu kalti... tata-bye-bye India....

Dear Bloggy will keep you posted, as of now I am eagerly waiting to sip something at Starbucks :)

Good Times

Sheela & my Bravery in Winter season

Sheela, Sheela ki jawani..... ab kisi aur ki jawani ko leke itna shor kyon nahi machaya. Sheela, Teena, Meena, Geeta, Reeta koi bhi... but this song's got something which makes people to sing it loud or murmur, I really really don't know what's that all about. 7AM is atleast 3 hours before I wake up these days. But at 7 in morning, yesterday, I got upto noises from street facing window. 8 year old kids were playing cricket & loudly singing 'Sheela Ki Jawani'. You are allowed to talk about ageing Indian cricket team with Sachin, Sehwag, Dravid & Laxman in late 30s but I wonder what the hell cricket got to do with 'Sheela ki Jawani'? Wierd Kids instead of singing 'Sachin ka budhapa' sung 'Sheela ki Jawani'. I had a prompt reply 'beta, pehle khud to jawaan ho jaao'. And the kids ran away laughing & singing even louder 'Sheela Ki Jawani'. Anyways, sheela is in real big trouble. Chahe wo uski jawani ho, ya tamatar-aalu-pyaaj ke roz badte daam.

I am in Mumbai, away from bone chilling Delhi cold. Heard it was 3.7 degrees yesterday, colder than Shimla. I am now worried about coping with the cold when I arrive in Delhi. It's been 30+ months since I saw sweater on my skin & the early morning fog. Not close to delhi by any standards but these days Mumbai is having it's own share of cold weather. But why am I even talking about this...???

Thanks to amazing channel MOVIES NOW, lately, I have been watching a lot of Hollywood, from 'Die Hard' to 'Alien vs Predator', from 'The Negotiator' to 'Phantom', 'Enemy of the state', 'Big Momma' etc. etc. The picture clarity of this channel is as amazing as it's sound quality, all looks real life. And as a result my dreams sometimes take me to the 'New year celebrations by Aliens' & other times I am hunting some giant predator while riding on Big Anaconda in a river flowing through the middle of the dense Amazon forests. At times, I find myself running with a news channel camera team, reporting Commandoes competing with heavily armed criminals. I report all that live on TV while ducking to the missile fired from one end. If not all this, I am saving hostages from a building bombed by terrorists. I am super human in my dreams. And if it comes to reality, I really wonder if it would be 'susu in my pants' or I'll still be as brave as in my dreams. I end this post here with these thoughts, I am seriously wondering about, will it be bravery or susu.......???

Susu times...oh sorry... I mean Good Times :)

Twenty Ten - Twenty Eleven

Ooops, I missed year end post :( And I missed New year post also.

For me New Year arrived li’l late. I was confused about how to celebrate arrival of Twenty Eleven & finally it was Surat & Daman with a friend was on my radar. But the radar failed, I was bed ridden. And was confined in four walls & was made to fall in love with the bed. Malaria seems to be catching me time & again. Female Mosquitoes look like fallen in deep love with me. I might not be popular among Human Females but I am definitely popular among their mosquito counterparts. They have been kissing me all this while. ;)

Even if it’s late, I must wish you all a very happy new year. Wish you the rocking year, with lots of passion & the following success. But above all wish you all get good relationships. Somehow that’s what I think is important & leads to other successes in life.

2010 was pretty good till July but there on life went in topsy turvy state. At times I was not feeling like ‘being me’. I was in a relation which lasted for precisely 5 months, 23rd July to 22nd November. Why the hell it went that long either???? A confused, discouraged, demotivated, loser was a girl I fell for. The one who gave me troubles; heavy times & to top it all wanted me to move away from my existing family. God, I always thought such things are true only in Saas-Bahu soaps. But this was for real. She felt like a serpent with so much venom… :). Naah, let’s not put it this way. It goes like this… She liked me, I liked her. We made our parents to work it out for us. Things started. We went on. Marriage was on cards. But I liked bright sun & she loved days without sun. When the differences started from such basic thing, it seemed nothing will fall on place. And her parents for whom some religious sect was everything in life, made things worse.

Thank God to pull me out of all that mess. And barring this black patch, with success in career, winning trust of friends, acquaintances & developed relations with business partners; 2010 ended on a good note. 2010 prepared a good ground for 2011…. I shall fly abroad.

Good Times
