Its his birthday! :))) — August 22, 2008

Its his birthday! :)))

Its his birthday today 🙂

And I think its the most opportune time to announce that I am soon going to get married… to a dream 🙂 A dream that I had heard only in romantic novels and fairy tales, but for me, has turned into a reality 🙂

Will announce the d-day soon 🙂 🙂

In my upcoming posts, would be referring to him as Noobie {Thats on his special request 😉 } 🙂

A stranger you were once.
Then, with a gentle look you took my hand.
As our lives engaged,
you lit my life and I held both your hands.
Now that months have passed,
ours souls have indeed become one.
How fortunate we are
that we have found the love so true
that everyone dreams about.

I wish you a very happy birthday… and I thank you for coming into my life 🙂

Love is in the air… :) — February 14, 2008

Love is in the air… :)

Cupid strikes

I am sitting in my office in Hong Kong… As far as my eyes cover my floor, I can only see bouquet’s of red roses lying on desks all around. It is such a pleasant sight to see people caring about one another so much. Now, I don’t mean that you need to show in order to care, but I guess, the reverse logic is almost always true – that if you are showing that you care, then probably you do!

You could see delighted , happy faces all around and just wonder, what one day can do to the moods of people! 🙂

I was never much of a believer of celebrating “days”, as I believe bhaavnayein kisi din ya samay ki mohtaaj nahi hoti… But in the fast paced lives that we live, I think such special days have a lot of importance… coz at least on these days you pay more attention to your loved ones and make them feel wanted…

sad but true….

so, all the couples… have fun with your loved one 🙂

and all the singles, may you find someone special real soon 🙂

Nova is the Queen of the world today!!! :) — February 2, 2008

Nova is the Queen of the world today!!! :)

Happy Birthday 

I so wish I could have been regular at least on that day of the year, which makes you feel like you are the king or the queen of the world!! 😀

It was my day today…!! 🙂

And there are a lot of people who made it special…

All those 20 odd people who gathered at my place around 12 in the night…

All those 30 odd people who blew hard earned cash in international calls to bless me with their wishes…

All those hundred odd people who either scrapped or mailed me good wishes…

Most importantly, my parents who flew down to Hong Kong to make my day even more special 🙂

All of you helped make it a memorable day! 🙂

Thank you soooooooooooooooo much!!!! <hugs>

[PS to all the junta who has been unfailingly commenting on all my blogs… thank u all sooooo much and my sincere apologies for not having replied to most of your comments of late. I promise to get back to my old blogging schedule shortly… ]

Tata’s 1-Lakh car – Tata Nano – arrives!!! — January 10, 2008

Tata’s 1-Lakh car – Tata Nano – arrives!!!

He came. He saw. He conquered!

Yap that’s Ratan Tata for you! A person who is a killing combination of nerve, passion and humility!

Read a news item today about the man himself unveiling an auto-miracle of a kind – a small family car which would cost only Rs. 1 Lakh. And it brought back fond memories of a discussion we had with him some time back and his comments then about the small car.

pc-luxury.jpg

We Great Lakers had a chance to meet him and interact with him in a small gathering last year and everyone was awed by this man!! Not just his greatness but also his humility and his willingness to talk to a bunch of dreamy-eyed 20-30 yr olds. Questions were asked from all sides and he patiently answered each and every one of them… The discussion mostly revolved around Tata Indica and the difficulties he faced then, and also the much awaited one-lakh car. Someone from the group asked him “How and why the 1-lakh car?” He gave a smile and answered, “I always wanted an affordable car by the Tata’s somewhere in the range of 1 lakh. It could have been slightly lower or slightly higher than 1 lakh. But, somehow this name “one-lakh ” got stuck, thanks to the media. So, now I have this challenge of fulfilling this aim.”

Mr Tata, you have rightfully fulfilled the dream!

Congratulations to you and your team! 🙂

India vs Pakistan Twenty20 – History in the making :) — September 24, 2007

India vs Pakistan Twenty20 – History in the making :)

India and Pakistan have won their way to the Cricket Twenty20 World Cup finals. It will take place at the Wanderers Stadium, Johannesburg on 24th September 2007.

This match is going to mark the end of an exciting series of matches… If one-dayers are unpredictable, Twenty20 is volatility at its best. One over and one wicket can completely change the course of the game 🙂

However, India-Pak matches are always special… Thanks to the age old rivalry between the neighbouring nations, the two teams play against each other, as if they are playing for their lives. It isnt about the game anymore. Its about the pride of the nations they are playing for!

Here are the reasons why this particular match is special:

  • India and Pakistan have never faced each other in Finals of a world cup

  • Pakistan had never deafeated India in any world cup match so far

  • India defeated Australia to qualify for the Finals. This has never happened before in the history of world cup.

  • Pakistan has lost only one match in the Twenty20 world cup so far, and that has been against India

  • Twenty20 world cup is the first time India will be playing such a young team, without its veteran players like Sourav, Dravid… and even Sachin.

Over to Dhoni now, to bring home the cup. Cheers to India 🙂

Come on Indiaaaaaaaaaa!!!! —

Come on Indiaaaaaaaaaa!!!!

Twenty20 World Cup

It was a dream I was harboring ever since I saw the India-Pak match. It was a long call, but I was secretly hoping and dreaming that India would play Pakistan once more in the finals. And thanks to the Indian Cricket Twenty20 World cup team, my dream has come true!

It was just day before yesterday, when my eyes were glued to the television and my heart racing… Andrew Symonds and Matthew Hayden were going strong… I was losing all hope…But, then Sreesanth’s power-packed bowling was always something that could be backed on. Yet again, 4 overs would not help in saving India! After all, we were pitched up against Australia!

Symonds wicket was what brought back the life… After that the candle of hope started flickering again!!

Uske baad kya tha… India ne ek sec ke liye bhi disappoint nahi kiya!! Dil khush ho gaya India ki batting aur bowling dekh ke 🙂

Indian Team, Thanks for making my dream come true! 🙂

CHAK DE INDIA!!!!

A lovely morn!!! :D — September 18, 2007

A lovely morn!!! :D

Lovely Morning

Woke up at 6 AM today… Yap! Not kidding… That was the time… and I seriously cant recall when was the last time I got up soooo early 😀 All this was thanks to my maid coming so early! All those who know me, know my penchant for waking up as late as I can afford…. So, when A and C saw me sitting in the hall sipping tea at 8 (that was when they woke up), they were pleasantly surprised…. so much so that A took a lottttttttt of time in accepting the fact that I was up so early 😉

They were even more surprised to see the hall all clean and the breakfast duly made… 😉

But, I must tell you… this has been, undoubtedly, the bestttttt morning in a fortnight now… and if that wasnt enough… chatted with an old school friend after a longgggggg time and also found some really good old songs here for download… Songs like Mohe bhool gaye sanwariya, Diwana Mastana hua dil, Tere Karan Mere Sajan, Kaare Kaare Baadra, Kahin deep jale kahin dil 😀

Cant believe that, can you!?????? So couldnt I!!! 😀

So, in short a GREAT start!!!!!!!!! Hope the rest of the day goes on fine..

Have a Great day people!!!! 😀

Happy Birthday Krishna! — September 4, 2007

Happy Birthday Krishna!

Janmashtami

यशोमति मैया से बोले नन्द लाला
राधा क्यूँ गोरी मैं क्यूँ काला

बोली मुस्काती मैया, लालन को बताया
काली अंधियारी आधी रात मे तू आया
लाडला कन्हैया मेरा हो
लाडला कन्हैया मेरा काली पगड़ी वाला
इसलिए काला

बोली मुस्काती मैया, सुन मेरे प्यारे
गोरी गोरी राधिका के नैन कजरारे
काले नैनों वाली ने, हो
काले नैनों वाली ने ऐसा जादू डाला
इसलिए काला

इतने मे राधा प्यारी आई इठलाती
मैंने न जादू ढाया बोली बलखाती
मैया कन्हैया तेरा जग से निराला
इसलिए काला

जन्माष्टमी की ढेरों बधाइयाँ

Saare Jahan se acha.. Hindustan hamara!

Independence Day

Its been 60 years now, since Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru stood on the podium, in front of the entire nation and said “At the stroke of midnight hour, when the world sleeps, India will awake to life and freedom.”

A lot has changed since then, and though a lot of people would not agree with me on this one, I would say, for the best! There is a lot of scope for improvement, but I would still say, we have done pretty well for ourselves.

In short, India is here to stay and very soon, we will RULE THE WORLD!
