Best Friend's engagement

He has finally done it. He has finally got engaged to the woman of his dreams. She is everything he has ever thought about, dreamt about..and yet again..thought about. They are engaged and shall get married some time soon. I am happy for both of them.
Having known him since I was about 10yrs old...and spending endless amount of start with...screaming, shouting and fighting with him. And a later stage talking and writing non stop to him...I used to often think...he is Strange(in a strangely nice way)..who will marry him?? :) and She will. Cool hai!!!
I am happy for him. You have been my best friend, my advisor, my well wisher and the kicker of my butt when i got stuck, the shaker of my spirit when i was low. I wish you every happiness...I know you shall be happy together. I think you have enough brains to know how to be be happy. And to the wife to be...if you ever need someone to assist you with butt kicking...let me know...the pleasure shall be mine...purana hisaab and all that.

Summer Storms

The one thing that is assured about English weather sucks. Every time. Either its too cold, or its too wet, or its too hot. It is never good and far from perfect.
The summer is finally here and the sun came out, the clothes came off, the music became loud as did the men on the streets. And along come downpours and flooding with picture perfect thunder storms. When i say picture i mean 'pichar' the Hindi way of saying it. So the storm was with Hindi film type..thunder (when the mother hears bad news) and lightning (when the hero figures the heroine is dead). So last night was an Opera of Heaven's Bad Boys.

Not good. Not good.

Inspiration for Me...always

'I know where I am going and I know the truth and I don't have to be what you want me to be I am free to be what I want'

Muhammad Ali

How come..My additions to Sod's Law

How come people you never think would break rules go and smash them to pieces?
How come you are wide awake at night till late on a weekday and feel sleepy early on a weekend?
How come there is no bread to eat when it is pouring outside?
How come your favourite shirt is the one that always flies of the clothes line? and also lands in the dirtiest piece of dirt there is?
How come you always meet people whose name you will never remember?
How come parents always call when you are doing something you are not supposed to be doing?
How come there are so many of these how comes?

Chasing dreams...

we are as strong as we want to be.
we are as weak as we deserve to be.
we are as much as in control as we can be.
we know as much as we want to remember.

a lot of times we get lost chasing other people's happiness thinking it is our own. Any unhappiness that follows is our own creation.

'Go confidently in the direction of your dreams! Live the life you have imagined.' - Thoreau

two of my close friends have got engaged..a couple made for each other. And the rest of us have been wondering...'whats up'..'whats going on'..on asking very very honestly we have received very well put dishonest answers of 'nothing'...'nothing is going on'... liberally sprinkled with....'dont be silli-es and dont be rediculous-es'..
But guess what....we are smarter than we look...3 out of the 4 people I spoke to last night guessed well..
anyways. Here is wishing one of them a Happy Birthday and the other a pat on the back for finally popping the question in a lovely cant-say-no setting. Happy for you guys!! Shall have the party when we meet!


Its Monday...again.
I am not sure why we get 5 continous working days and then 2 days to stop and rest. Why cant we just work alternate days...that would make life easy!!

For a change I had a relaxed weekend...spent time listening to all kinds of music while I got about sorting my fridge (which is always full of things I dont want to eat), my clothes (which have a nasty way of coming out of the cupboard and lying on the floor), my papers (which seem to shuffle themselves everytime I look away...
No one told me life would be I should not moan.

So some Ronan Keating, some Jhatka Remixes and some Indian Ocean happened this weekend. I am still a techno moron and am in the process of figuring out how to put pictures on this blog..once done there shall be more to share..

..and I shall shut up for a bit.


have been thinking about doing this for a long time. my life so far on this planet has been vaguely interesting and interestingly i think instead of starting a book called the life and times of ... i shall start a blog now and later convert it into a hopefully interesting book.
This blog is for people who... to talk
...can write at length
...can talk even more
....can read a word despite typo errors
