but you know, from past few days the only two emotions I'm feeling are either 'hungry' or 'sleepy'... I mean, not that its anything new, but sooo much? never before!!
All thanks to the coldest ever bangalore weather! (atleast, I want to believe that!)

Life is full of surprises... but, never when you need one :-( !

shaadi se pehle....

No, its nothing to do with the movie, which made people enter the theatre expecting to drool over Ayesha Takia and Mallika sherawath and came out with a duhhhhhhhhh..... Here, I'm just rambling over the recent rants i've been exposed to... :-/

Khushi, its high time, you need to think about your life and you need to settle down!

They are not getting her married coz she is earning good bucks for them...

Khushi, sorry if I'm disturbing you, do you have a custom of saath phera in your marriages? Mom was asking me to get the details as your brother is least bothered about it and says ask khushi for everything...

Tell me Do you want to get married just because you are turning 28? or you want to marry for the right reason (person)?

you need to make certain compromises for having a life which you've wanted...

how does the age matter if you have the right person?

Yesterday my hubby came home very late, I'd seen a dance in TV and wanted to make him learn that... I made him learn the steps in the middle of the night, and we were doing all this till 3am in the morning :P... you know, a nice thing about carrying is, he is taking care of me just like a princess :)

how can you ask someone to marry at a gunpoint?

Dont worry deeps, someone somewhere is made for you, It cant happen overnight, its a real long process and at times you might feel really frustrated, but dont give up hopes...

after I broke up with him, I'm really worried who will marry me, khushi...

Khushi, I dont like this design of your kind of mangalsutra, I want something with diamonds, actually in our custom mangalsutra is not compulsory, do I have to wear this for my entire life??? can you ask your maushi if I can wear atleast some latest designs?

Hi Khushi, how are you? helloooo ellidyo? no news at all? you are not inviting me for you sister's wedding ha? its supposed to be next week sometime right? hmmmmmm My sister's marriage broke! what? hey, what are you telling? with so much difficulty they had convinced both the parents??? what happend? hmmm...I'll tell you the reason sometime later...

Hey, Khushi, its Feb 28th da :), his parents havent agreed yet, but we've decided on the date and he said he'll come out if they dont agree even after persuading them for the last 4 years!!!

'sach keh raha hai deewana, dil na kisi se lagana, jhute hain yaar ke vaadein saare, jhuti hain pyar ki kasme, maine har lamha jisse chaha, jisse puja, ussine yaaro mera dil toda toda, tanha tanha chodaa.....' I remember this song very much, khushi...

PD, you atleast tell Khushi, You are 2 years younger to her and you are getting married next week, why is she not thinking about her marriage? you talk to her...

Its just escapism if you think you'll sit quiet until things will fall in place, you need to work on your life...

Khushi, dont worry about marriage now da, you are very happy soul, after marriage, be it arranged or love, life changes!!! After the initial days of excitement is gone, it'll be just a routine... I'm married for 5 years now and my life revolves just around my son... I dont even remember the last time when my husband had got me even a small rose or appreciated me for anything....


Out of Mind..... will be right back!!!

loving example...:-)

After BITS life, I had thought having 'friends' in office will be a thing of past... I was mentally prepared to have just 'colleagues' around me... But I was wrong! Though we are not in the same lunch group, we kinda gelled well pretty soon. Its like you just connect to some people in no time, you dont need any special reason. She is a huge bundle of energy running around the whole floor, spreading a contagious smile where ever she goes...Every morning I pass by her seat just to see a glowing face which says good morning sweetu :-)...

One such morning I pass by her seat, she is holding a box of home made sweets and asked me to eat it fast, as she'd not got too many and couldnt give it to all... The foodie that I am, started munching it and asked her, whats special today dearie? she says, its my hubby's bday today :D with a wide smile...(* :-( :-( :-( *).. I havent seen her hubby... none of her new friends have seen him... She came to Bangalore to shoo away the memories of his illness and his death...:( I just couldnt swallow the sweet and tears just ran on my cheeks.... She said phat, buddhuu, chal kaam kar...

Sometimes I dont know how to react! should I be speechless just to realize how much she is living in and enjoying her past, or should I tell her to move out of it and think less about it because the more she is attached to her past, the more she can not think of her future? I have a few friends of mine who are separated... very easily I can console them telling the other person did not deserve them, they would get a better pair soon and so on... In this case, I cant even tell anything, I just feel helpless...

Sometimes life can be so cruel, yet some people have the courage to bounce back, smile and say it happend :-)

Its nice to see such people :-)

Both are aliens... thats all!

If there is a problem, she wants to talk about it over and over, where as he wants to isolate himself with a hat which reads I-can-handle-it-on-my-own!.

Whether she finds the solution or not, it kind of gives her a satisfaction that she is atleast doing something about the problem by just talking about it, and he thinks whats the need of talking about some problem when you cant solve it!

She listens to him and he hears...

He wants to forget the problems of the day, but she wants to remember. he'll say “Forget it, it’s no big deal.” But she will not rest till the problem is talked about. She always thinks " how can he be so insensitive!"

She thinks he is insensitive and he thinks she is over reacting!!!

Its very true Mr John Gray, Men are from Mars and Women are from Venus, Just that we have to live together on earth, Sigh!!!!. I was going through this book and thought of sharing it ;-)

some interesting trivia...

Got some trivia as a forward:

If you yelled for 8 years, 7 months and 6 days you would have produced enough sound energy to heat one cup of coffee.
Psssst, hardly seems worth it.

If you farted consistently for 6 years and 9 months, enough gas is produced to create the energy of an atomic bomb.
ha ha ha, this is more like it :-D

The human heart creates enough pressure when it pumps out to the body to squirt blood 30 feet.
:O :O :O

A pig's orgasm lasts 30 minutes.
anyone want to be a pig? :P

Banging your head against a wall uses 150 calories an hour
way to go guys!

The male praying mantis cannot copulate while its head is attached to its body. The female initiates sex by ripping the male's head off.
What the...?!

The catfish has over 27,000 taste buds.
What could be so tasty at the bottom of a pond :-?

Some lions mate over 50 times a day.
You decide, pig or lion?? :-D

Elephants are the only animals that cannot jump.
thank god!

A cat's urine glows under a black light.
I wonder who was paid to figure that out?

An ostrich's eye is bigger than its brain.
Even I know of some people like that ;-)

Starfish have no brains
I know some people like that too ;-)

Humans and dolphins are the only species that have sex for pleasure.
what about Pig and Lion???

In Lebanon, men are legally allowed to have sex with animals, but the animals must be female. Having sexual relations with a male animal is punishable by death.
Like THAT makes sense :-/

when the music changes, so does the dance...

My dad was(is) a great fan of Vijayanti mala bali and Hema malini's dance and he had thought one day even his daughter would become a great dancer. So, even before I could think whether it interests me or not, I started my 'thaiya thai'(that is the first step in Bharatanatyam) when I was 6. But absolutely no complains, I thoroughly enjoyed it :). Be it a Farewell party for a teacher or the Annual day at school, I used to be on stage all the time :).

Even from our dance class, we used to give lots of performances, but more than that, we were all enjoying the practice sessions a lot. We had a famous ballet called 'Daiveche' (which was on atma linga of GOKARNA) which we had peformed 13 and a half times ;). I shall blog about this 'half ballet' again as its a long and interesting story in itself!. I cleared a couple of dance certifications and got scholarship for 3 years from Karnataka State :).

When I started my PU, there was lot of pressure as that was supposed to be the turning point in ones life as told by the whole world and I had to quit dance! May be I could have managed it together, but frankly speaking, I never felt anything then, May be I'd taken it for granted :-. After sometime, I started realizing that may be I should continue it again, but thanks to the college I studied, I had to go to tuitions whole day to get atleast a 35. Tell me something, how is studying Transducers and Instrumentation (a subject in 5sem) helping me in my life today? ah... all credits to the VTU syllabus! And after BE, I was more concentrating on a job, career et al...

Now, with a new job, I thought I shall start dance too, but this time I wanted to try something new, so I thought of joining ODISSI :D. I started my 'tha ithi thaka dhimi tha'(the first step I learnt in Odissi) now when I'm 26. Gosh! I'm sure my first step at 6, wasnt this difficult at all. An Unfit body, a bad stamina, abundant fat all over, but still there is something which is making me look forward to every weekend for my classes. I dont think I can be (rather I dont even plan to be) a great dancer as my dad had thought, for that matter, I dont even know how long I can continue it because of the nature of my work, but I guess I'll give my best to learn and I shall enjoy every bit of it until i'm doing it :-D.

On a lighter note, there goes a chinese proverb, 'We're fools whether we dance or not, so we might as well dance ;)' he he

cant relate to the related...

They say...
height has to match...
the food we eat has to match...
the language we talk has to match...
the two should 'look' good together for the society...
rest all 'should' be compromised by 'you-know-who'... :-/

I feel...
wavelengths should be same...
interestes should match...
goals in life should be similar...
there needs to be something called 'chemistry'...
and rest all the things could be compromised by both...

I dont believe I cant relate to people i'm actually related to :-/

XX? or XY???

All men are extremely busy.
Although they are so busy, they still have time for women.
Although they have time for women, they don't really care for them.
Although they don't really care for them, they always have one around.
Although they always have one around them, they always try their luck with others.
Although they try their luck with others, they get really pissed off if the women leaves them.
Although the women leave them they still don't learn from their mistakes and still try their luck with others.

The most important thing for a woman is financial security.
Although this is so important, they still go out and buy expensive clothes.
Although they always buy expensive clothes, they never have something to wear.
Although they never have something to wear, they always dress beautifully.
Although they always dress beautifully, their clothes are always just "an old rag".
Although their clothes are always "just an old rag", they still expect You to compliment them. Although they expect you to compliment them, when you do, they don't Believe you.

Men are from Mars, women are from venus.... oh... John gray, you were so right :D

Universe and humor!

After re iterating to myself some n number of times that round is not a shape and its high time I start working out, I decided(atlast) to join the gym in my office. Kept the kit ready, forgot it for 2 days, took it to office the third day and kept it in the desk for a week till I got mentally prepared (ahem), and then I started from last monday!
Tread mill 20 minutes... distance - 2kms... burn 160 calories
cycling 5 minutes... burn 40 calories... yayyyyyyy 200 calories gone :D :D :D

and i'm regularly doing it... (common, 4 days is not less).
thanks to google, I found out,
1 samosa adds 256 calories,
10 pieces of potato chips gives you 110 calories,
One chottta cup of halwa adds 570 calories,
One piece of jalebi is 200 calories,
One motichoor laddu adds 250 calories,
One plate bhel puri is 250 calories,
Two peices of murukku adds 580 calories,
Any veg pizza you touch will have a minimum of 250 calories,
One spooooon of mango pickle is sixty fiiiiive caloriesss,
gaaaaaaaaawwwwwwwwdd, whatever I like to eat has so many calories, what is left now? some ghas puus???

I joined a new organization 3 weeks back. CLAP CLAP CLAP!!!
Among the few things which I've noticed here, there is one particular practice which caught my attention. The Quality assurance team have formulated a practice called 'START, STOP or CONTINUE'. At a regular interval of time they consult each team and get the information on the New/Worst/Best practices of the organization and depending on the statistics obtained, they repair the processes.

hmm, it seemed pretty interesting and I thought I'll apply this on to ME, based on my learnings from the last year :)

I think I should,

- being more sensible in my decisions than being just sensitive about my emotions.
- improving bigtime on money management.
- my gym regularly(damn this man!).
- redefining the rules of friendhip as the definition I have is totally outdated! May be the perception I have needs to be changed. I realized I should be less college-ish with my friends and understand that each of us have our priorities, our space, our life and I should not interfere in theirs and expect them to act as expected!

- thinking ONLY about me and do some small compromises to show my care to the people who care for me.
- losing my self-respect in front of any (damn) emotion!!!
- breaking my head on small issues as life is actually too short to waste on silly things/people. I should realize Ignorance is bliss at times!
- being so careless about me and the people around me.

- to live life to the fullest!!!

phew! my list is done. I'm not sure if i'll follow all these religiously, but I shall definetely TRY!!!.

I might succeed or I may fail miserably, but so what, next year is always there to Start, Stop or Continue :)

Happy New year to all of you, May all good things come your way :)
