Room gets a whiteboard!

Any idea what can I write on it? :)

Saturday has been both lazy and rewarding so far! Nice!

What is! what would be?



I remember listening to this song, and songs like these on the radio when I was a kid! Felt good about the simplicity of messages being given via these!!!

Cut to today, when what I see all around is a strong negative vibe about almost everything which happens in one's life! Jobs/ Family/ Infrastructure/ Government/ Policies/ Taxes/Curruption and what not!

These songs had extreme positivity and commitment in them! And I think what we are today is not because of what we do today, but what people and leaders about 30 years ago did! We are only seeing the fruits of whatever effort in whatever direction they put in! and if someone starts a change today, its going to be visible in only about a decade or maybe more!



I feel extremely sad at the kind of country that we are going to pass on to the new generation! Am I talking like a concerned father? :) I think marriage does that to people! I am thinking of what can I do to give my kids a better world to live in!!!


Oh, and if it interests you, you can see the kid Aruna Irani @ 1.57 minutes into the first song and again at 2:49

Movie Weekend!

You would know that you have just seen Golmal 3 if

1. You have experience an overdose of primary colors for about 140 minutes
2. You managed to keep your sanity through a similar duration of nonsensical slapstick (made to look like situational) comedy
3. You went inside the cinema hall expecting nothing but senseless comedy, but see a lot of senseless action and melodrama instead
4. You did not expect anything or get anything from the dialogues or the script anyway
5. You feel that Golmal 1 was a different league altogether
6. You feel that Tushar Kapoor spoke a little too much for being a dumb. (Can't forget how hilarious it was to see him do his act in Golmal 1, Rohit Shetty things that overdose of that would make for a funnier movie; He is just simple a simpleplain dumb or what???)
7. You have not managed to laugh for more than 30 minutes during the entire movie! Half of which could have been because you were laughing at yourself!

Anyway!!! I also managed to watch Twilight, sunday evening, and liked it! not amazing, but it got me thinking about how selfless people could get when it comes to love! or can they?

Two steps

There are only two steps that are needed to reduce issues in one's life!

1. Find Problems
2. Resolve them

and when i say Find problems, I really do not mean that one needs to go around looking for one :) or to create one if they cannot easily find one!

Ranikhet-0051

There is a third step too, which can be mixed with the two above!

Have tea while you do the two above!

All in One Weekend

This weekend was such a tiring but satisfying weekend!

Went to
- Chandni Chawk in Old Delhi for lights, and wall-clocks
- Khari Baoli in Old Delhi for Candles and Dry-fruits
- Sadar Bazaar near Old Delhi for Crackers and Fireworks
- Cottage Emporium in Central Delhi for solid wood furniture
- Uttar Pradesh Shilpotsav in NOIDA for handicrafts and snacks
- Jwala Heri in West Delhi for random Diwali shopping

Every single time I visit the markets in Old Delhi, I love that place more than the last time!
