About Me

My photo
Now I take the floor
Outside hardens the core
As I start to grow
I see the long way to go

One who gets away ...

Its been days rather months since I have blogged ... Life has been quite hectic spending only wee hours at home … I am really missing out on my personal life … The other day, I wrote a few lines to my friend, a form of an apology :-

I have no time to stand and stare
As I have tons of work to do
When I do get time to spare
I will try to get in touch you

But will I ever be able to get in touch with my acquaintances? If I need to, I need to race against Mr Mighty … Isko pakadna mushkil hi nahin, naa mukin hai … Every time he just gets away ;-)

In Lost World

I had a long discussion with my friend today. He asked me - What’s your future plan? And that became the basis for this blog.

So far my life has been good. Loving family, good friends and a pretty decent job. I did have my share of testing times, but took it to my stride and went along with the tide.

What I have learnt all these years? Hmm ... I have learnt that failures are successes are two sides of the same coin (philosophy ;-)). If success is ice candy sweet, failure can be extremely bitter. One should learn from both and never jitter. I surprised myself with the amount of patience and concentration that I chip in all my tasks whether personal or professional. I am a perfectionist to the core. I believe that whether it’s your assignment or your relationships, you need to be 100% committed.

I do have some shortcomings as a leader. What are those? I should start believing my subordinates. I should be receptive, attentive and more communicative. I need to work on my negatives and be a leader who really leads from the front ;-)

Now my personal life – Where is it heading? I did have some crushes and heartbreaks. I feel it’s a part of growing up ;-) I have been alone for a while now, but I have never felt a necessity to have a partner. People around me keeps wondering and pondering. My well-wishers feel that I need to settle down, but why? The answer is you can be all alone but during old age you may need somebody to look after you. But what’s the guarantee? Its still remain an open question.

Now, answering my friend – I have no idea what’s going to happen to me in next one hour, what can I say about next few years? I am going through a gamut of mentations … Am I supposed to plan ahead and make things work the way I want it to or should I move with time? All I know if I have miles to go before I sleep.

Bundle of Joy

On August 24th, I received a word
An angel was born in this beautiful world
Excitement in me suddenly grew
And I set to meet my new born nephew

Chubby cheeks, rosy lips
Twinkling eyes and impeccant smile
Time just slipped away
Worries were forgotten all the while

Intermittent laughs and periodic frowns
Recollecting about the days bygone
Its a treat to watch his wide yawn
Being always active from dusk to dawn

Every moment with him is quite a delight
Indeed a worthwhile sight
My nephew, my new toy
Is my latest bundle of joy

Whose line is it anyway?

One-liners penned by me :-

Life is a mix of good and bad
Is upto you to be glad or sad

Though I am slightly out of mood
I feel everything happens for the good

Ambition is always good in small doses
Else, the more you have, the more worry it causes

Whether you are far, whether you are near
You mean a lot to me my dear

You came into my life pretty late
I have no other choice but to blame my fate

Flower says it all
If you get it give me a call

Roses are red, violets are blue
What to write next, I have no clue

Lord of the (ear)Rings

One of the tasks, which I do diligently on a daily basis, is to change earrings so that they match my attire. I do have a reasonable collection of earrings and hence there is a variety to choose from. Every morning I spend at least 5 minutes to pick my choice of the day.

C’mon guys, its no Herculean task. The end result - "Face adorns when earrings are worn".

Did you know - "You can always tell what kind of a person a man really thinks you are by the earrings he gives you."

Keep cerebrating …

Spice(d) up

Hmm ... Never ever I thought that cooking will ever become my passion. As the saying goes "Necessity is the mother of invention" and in my case, necessity caused me to reinvent myself as a cook.

Have been doing a lot of experimenting and the results have been quite positive. The formula for a masaledar chatpati khaana is simple - "Too much of anything is bad".

Am just a beginner ... Hence taking everything with a pinch of salt ;-)

Whats cooking??? Keep conjecturing ...

Just another ...

Was a great weekend. Spent time with my friends. We are quite near geographically, but our hectic schedules made it difficult to communicate with each other even through mail :-)

Today people are not ready to move out from their co-ordinates. Are we so busy or are we not interested in building a chain? Anyway, all I want to say is

"Whats a world full of care,
If there is no time to stand and stare!!!"

Keep pondering ...
