Dream

And now, the end is near;
And so I face the final curtain.
My friend, Ill say it clear,
Ill state my case, of which Im certain.

Ive lived a life thats full.
Ive traveled each and evry highway;
And more, much more than this,
I did it my way.

Regrets, Ive had a few;
But then again, too few to mention.
I did what I had to do
And saw it through without exemption.

I planned each charted course;
Each careful step along the byway,
But more, much more than this,
I did it my way.

Yes, there were times, Im sure you knew
When I bit off more than I could chew.
But through it all, when there was doubt,
I ate it up and spit it out.
I faced it all and I stood tall;
And did it my way.

Ive loved, Ive laughed and cried.
Ive had my fill; my share of losing.
And now, as tears subside,
I find it all so amusing.

To think I did all that;
And may I say - not in a shy way,
No, oh no not me,
I did it my way.

For what is a man, what has he got?
If not himself, then he has naught.
To say the things he truly feels;
And not the words of one who k…

happy birthday to me........

well after a long long wait....(a yr is too long to wait for this one special occasion) my birthday finally will arrive in some 15 min....oct i feel takes too long to come...
m really excited..its gonna be my 24th b'day..well m a big girl now i think....
m preparing for NBDE..i pray to lord that m able to prepare well n get good scores so that i get admission in a dental school in the coming yr....
lets c...i m gonna give it a best shot....
this coming yr it seems is gonna be a very happening one....if things go well its gonna be a very positive progressive yr for me n my family...
will be a tough one too...but now m prepared...guess m ready to see the world, face new challenges..
recently was unwell...got appendisectomy done...today mom removed stitches...
felt so good to be able to eat after being jus on juices soups n IV drip for 5 days.....
feels great to be healthy..though i ll take some more time to be totally fine...
its a nice way to begin a yr.....being healthy...really last week …

Beauty and Money.....

two things most of us r hypocrites abt......we say something when its concerning others and something else when it is regarding ourselves...
maybe we do it unknowingly
being a dentist i deal with aesthetics daily....
eg 1. just yesterday a patient came to clinic....she had habit of chewing tobacco n had brown stains all over the teeth...now normally she would not have thought that for her health of her gums n teeth she should firstly stop chewing tobacco or at least get scaling (cleaning) of teeth done every 6 months....but she came at nth hour when she had to go for a wedding n jus wanted outer (buccal) side of front 6 teeth cleaned..she said to get rest of her teeth cleaned she wud come later....lets c
a similar case came few months back too where the groom had come for scaling 3 days prior to wedding...he is yet to come for cleaning rest of teeth....
2.today only...one uncle came...he has only upper front 4 teeth..they r also shaky..n now he wants artificial denture for jus front te…

ram gopal varma ki aag.....

well m so glad it bombed....along with victoria 203....recent two movies which were remade n flopped big time...
hopefully it will put off film makers from remaking old movies....
didnt see it...trailers n posters were enough to make u feel disgusted....
i guess DON too didnt do too well....so out of so many movies which were remade only devdas n parineeta did well....n that too coz they were presented well....n film makers didnt toy with the soul of the movie....
why cant they make more movie from books..n give the credit where deserved n make a good movie....
out of so many movies seen recently i thought only chak de proved to be a great entertainer n everything was going for the movie..
even heyy baby..well i wud anyday prefer to watch three men and a baby..
the love story angle was so pathetic.....n the joke was funny only when it was repeated twice not 5 times...by the 5th time the joke lost its humor....
hopefully our film makers get inspired by something more than a past hit movie....

malaysia

finally my tomorrow has arrived.......

so from singapore v went to malaysia...in malaysia first v went to genting highlands...it is a mini las vegas...v went there by skyway...one of the longest roperails in the world...it was pretty cold out there as genting is situated on top of a mountain hence the name highlands...

well at genting there r 4 or 5 hotels...each connected by lifts n monorails n escalator...n like las vegas there r play areas for kids....where u play games n win teddy bears n stuff...also there is a casino there...(banned for malaysian muslims though)...the hotel where v stayed had an attached theme park...which was a again a mini version of our good old essel world...

after having quite a good time in genting for 1 n half day...v proceeded to kuala lumpur city of gardens...beautiful landscaping done all over the city...n colourful lights hanging on every tree..beautiful

there we saw patronus twin tower (4th tallest tower in world as of now....n the ONLY twin tower)...als…

RAKSHA BANDHAN.....

long time since i have written....my tomorrow has not yet come with respect to writing about the trip...soon it shall come...
today i m gonna write about a festival very close to my heart
tomorrrow is raksha bandhan...festival of brother n sister...festival celebrating the sanctity of this relationship....where a brother takes a vow to keep his sister happy...protect her..take care of her....and sister prays for his long life n happiness as well
history of this festival goes back when rani padmavati's(i hope its correct name) kingdom was invaded....and i guess her husband had either died or was fighting other invaders at other front or something.....and she didnt know what to do where to ask for help....in such a situation she sent a silken thread to emperor humayun saying she by sending this thread she had made him her brother and it was he should help her in times of trouble.....he was touched by her gesture...n sure enough reached there with his army n defeated the enemy n protect…

trip....

well its been two weeks since i have been back...n i m sorry i have not written till now....its jus i guess due to not good internet connectivity and also my laziness....now again will write like a job...

well 1st v went to singapore........our 1st day of trip was a bit rough...delayed flights had to spend a lot of time at the air port.....got tired....but its part of the vacationing experience i guess....

well we arrived a changi airport singapore at around 8 am got fresh at the airport to spend the day sight seeing..but then v got lucky...our tour guide told us we wud be checking in 1st..having breakfast n lunch....n then leaving for sight seeing around 2 pm..

so v relaxed..ate a hearty breakfast of idli n dosa n medu vada....(it was nice to see so many indians there....and our hotel was in little india area...so it was good to see posters of indian actors n sports men.......

1st day was spent looking around at santosa island........there v saw many shows like images of singapore...4D b…

happy anniversary mom dad......happy birthday anu......

my apologies....

i owe an apology to ushma for not mentioning her in the anniversary post.....sorry dear guess i jus bugged at aakash n dhaval....n was too excited abt anu's engagement...that in most of my post i wrote abt it....coz milan jiju is too cute...n sweet...i know u agree...so most of my space unknowingly was dedicated to them....but i really appreciate that u didnt act like a spoil sport n danced with us all evening....sorry sweety....
also to note among fadias it was rupal bhai n savi bhabhi who danced very cutely.....n hemu kaka n raksha kaki too danced energetically for some time....all kakis did shake a leg to garba songs....also seju bhabhi danced with palak....
i m very sorry not to have mentioned all of them.......they did add their special touch to the evening.....and the evening would not have been the same without them......
love u all....we really make a rocking family......

thank u people...

i jus wanna thank all my family n friends who have been taking time out n reading my blog n giving me their views on my views n also on my writing....it really means a lot to me that u guys do enjoy reading wat i write...it encourages me to put my thoughts into words....initially i was a bit apprehensive abt writing my thoughts...but u people have put my mind at ease..appreciation that i got for my writing n thoughts has given me a boost.....bcoz of the positive feedback now m writing 3 blogs....thank u...n happy reading...hope i continue to tickle ur mind enough to make u come back to read what new i have written..

finally...

today got my degree certificate...today was my final official visit to my college...the day for which i had worked so hard for 5 long years had finally arrived....but the feelings were bittersweet....felt nostalgic when i walked thru the corridors...greeting teachers n a few friends...most of them will be gone after 2 months as they complete their internship in september......after that there will hardly anyone in coll known to me..barring of course those students who r doing PG in our college...soon the college which was my home away from home for 4 n 1/2 years wud be an alien turf for me...with fewer known people being there...the time i spent in pimpri will always be one of the best years of my life..which i will cherish...of course there were ups n downs...there were fights but there also was making up...fun..dance..fear..love...rejection..laughter..tears...anger...guilt...name it n we all been thru it.....doing what pleases...eating what pleases....watching movies...studing in ca…

a friend sent me this pic...these words exactly tell whats on my mind....so my mr right..who ever u r .....where ever u r......hope u read this n i hope u r like this ....n i wish i find u soon ;)

my weekend

a gr8 weekend...something i m always gonna remember...shubu arrived a day early on friday night itself....bipinmasa came on sat n so did mitu.. anu's engagement ceremony was on sunday in morning....well she looked splendid n so did milan jij...the atmosphere was charged..anu was smiling throughout the whole function n so was jiju...she was just so happy...hugged me so tightly after the rings were exchanged...her excitement was palpable.....she spread her infectious laughter to all of us...jus seeing her v wud too start smiling......it was fun seeing her when they were clicking pictures...the photographers telling her how to pose,telling jij n her to stand closer,tilt head etc etc...we all cousins had a ball...
but the center of attraction was of course rushika...she is such a friendly n sweet girl....she came to us even though we were seeing her after a yr....was great..

in the evening was mom dads anniversary party....well as usual u jus need to bring me mithu anu n didi together n…

dhoom Vs dhoom 2

this is one of the first of my post of my new movie comparison series.....lemme tell u guys something...i dont sit n dwell on it..this come to me spontaneously coz of my love for movies...as i see a movie my mind automatically starts comparing if its s sequel or its based on a book or if its a remake...n if its none of the above..my mind starts working abt whats good in this movie (if its a nice movie)...or what sets it apart from the rest....n if its a bad movie..whats bad abt it...or wat can be done so that it cud be a better movie....this comes to me naturally.....n as it keeps on going round n round my head i have decided to pen in down (in this case type it down)


Dhoom Vs Dhoom 2

both these movies made good money...dhoom 2 more than dhoom....but as far as i m concerned...i believe dhoom was a much better movie than its sequel...

my reasons :dhoom.... it was a new concept...it was first of its kind....it practically had no stars...it made the actors stars..dhoom was abhisheks n john&…

smiles...

this is one of the best part of our profession...smile designing..n i dont mean only monetarily...a few days back a young boy came to us..he had had a bike accident...n his 3 front teeth had broken....one had to be removed...he is in hotel industry..can u imagine what it must be like for a 20 yr old boy to lose his 3 front teeth....we managed to save 2 teeth n thanks to newer dental procedures soon he is gonna have new teeth..exactly like his natural teeth..gr8 na...n this is i guess a tenth case in 6 months...so the percentage of people having some problem with their front teeth n losing their smile is quite high...also another thing i like is...these patients who have broken their front teeth or the front teeth have got decayed...they avoid smiling in front of others for obvious reasons till their treatment is over n they have all good natural looking teeth...but when they come to us...they laugh without any inhibition...coz v have seen them in such a state..they r not conscious in …

brownie..

made this chocolate n peanut butter brownie last week using 28 cooks receipe ....n it was yummy....thank u 28 cooks....n thanks tanvi too as i got to know the site because of her...

love stories...

i love love stories...n when i read saloni's story i loved it too...so today m gonna write abt some love stories i know...they r of my family n friends...jus taking fictitious names jus in case they dont like being written on blog

1. raj n puja : raj saw puja on train....felt something for her (maybe)...he didnt know anything except her name puja as he had heard her family calling her that...well it was a long distance journey....so he kept looking at her for some 18 hours..train got delayed for a few hours...puja saw this guy looking at her with interest but didnt do anything abt it....they both reached their destination n separated...apparently raj cud not get her out of his head...so he mailed all pujas from internet search directory...n asked if she was is a given train at a given date which had got delayed for this many hours pl reply...he wanted to be friends...sure enough she too got it...she replied they became friends....some months later he proposed...they got married..n …

HAPPY DOCTORS DAY

who gives his knowledge for ur ignorance
his health for ur disease
D best of his time for the worst of yours
his patience for ur impatience
his utmost care for your carelessness
his smiles for your tears
his comfort 4 ur comfort
his sleep for ur sleep
his life 4 ur life
who else
but a doctor for his patient--noble indeed

HAPPY DOCTORS DAY...TO ALL THE DOCTORS OUT THERE...

Pain...

being a dentist i have to deal with this PAIN daily....the fear...n everything...people come n say jus rid me of this pain..or will it pain during the procedure etc etc...

why r v all so afraid of this pain.....it is body reaction to alarm us something is going wrong somewhere...its a protective mechanism...cant v jus know it n live wit it...ok so what if it pains..i will deal with it.....why dont v think like this... why do v want to escape pain...

if u can feel the pain its good...it means u know something is amiss that needs to be corrected...and it also means whatever needs to corrected is still correctable....

love the sentence in kailash khers song allah ke bande : dard ko saath lele dard bhi tere kaam aayega

periodontitis i feel is dreadful....u dont feel pain...so u dont know something is wrong n more often then not...most patients who come to us with it have to get their tooth extracted as the disease has progressed so much...there is so much bone lost that the tooth loses its su…

trust....

m writing after a long long time...the reason no 1 being i was lazy..secondly i didnt have my thoughts organised..n thirdly being the internet was jus not working....

the title trust is regarding the fact that i always find treating a child patient more satisfying than treating an adult patient...the reason being that u cant work with a child unless he/she trusts u...u may have to initially scold him sometimes (i use that as a last option) but that fear is only temporary the moment he feels u gonna do something that might hurt him he makes stuff difficult for u...so his fear has to be converted to trust before u can proceed....n once he knows that u not gonna hurt he will let u do everything required.....usually talking straight to the point in gentle sweet tone helps

u have to be truthful to him...u cannot say an injection is not gonna hurt....u say it will hurt a bit..like a mosquitto bite or a pinch...if the child is male u say its gonna hurt less as compared to when he falls on gr…

thats the way it is....

this is in connection with my two posts MY NEXT FEW DAYS n HOW DID IT GO....
was gonna write this before only...but due to obvious reasons cud not do it...

well all i wanna say is...thats the way life is...v plan few things...expect them to happen...try hard for things to happen the way we want...n what happens is something else only...ya there r few pleasant surprises...but along wit them r not so pleasant happenings...

something as short as a weekend has made me realise this....ya its happened before too but i guess i was too busy to notice it....but these days as i m relatively free i view everything that happens as a third person...try n see some logic in it..or see if there is something doable about it or no...

n i have realised that other than moving ahead with the flow..there is not much v can do about it....as i read JOHN LENNON quote : LIFE IS SOMETHING THAT HAPPENS WHEN V R BUSY PLANNING...

v have to be aware of it that this doesnt happen with us......its better to take things in…

my weekend

today is a very important day....internet is working finally...hopefully it continues to do so...even during the monsoons....hopefully the current also stays n there r no problems with trains.....lets hope 4 the best.....

saw OCEANS 13 yesterday wit ushma.....had a good time with her..went shopping wit her at infinity mall....remembered the day spent there with tanvi....only this time v did more of window shopping..movie was nice....had caramel popcorn too....i go more for the pop corn than the movie i think...one time watch...there shud have been a female character too i think...else the pace of movie was fine...except they showed some wierd machine that caused earth quakes n some things i couldnt understand.....else the concept n revenge part was nice....

also visited my doc...he did my eye check up n said all was well..have a 6 by 5 vision he said..cud read even beyond it.....so i guess i can c more than normal now :)
he has also given permission to do all regular activities like driv…

after a long long time

i havent written since some time....reason being lack of time...my sir is out of station so i have to manage the clinic morning n evening....also as my LASIK surgery was done i was advised minimum computer using...and last but not the least our internet connection is not working since a week....yesterday only the enggineer called up n said he wud come tomo n restore after dad told him v didnt wanna renew the account....n he citied rains as the reason...i told him, the entire monsoon is still left.....he jus apologised..n thats it...after all v r at their mercy....all connectiond r like this only.......jus bugged off with them but cant do anything...lets c what happens..now have started keepin a diary to write the thoughts n then will pen them when net is working....now m at ushma's home so i thought of writing....from tuesday sir will be back so again will have time as then will have to go only in morning.....looking forward to writing a lot more....

thank you glasses

well tomo is the big day...it will be good bye to my glasses forever....tomo is my lasik surgery....i jus wanna thank them....they have been with me since 4th std.....have been with me thru all my good n bad times...all my exams my 10th n 12th boards...all four university exams....wudnt have been a dentist if they werent around.....wudnt be able to read books or watch movies..the two things i love doing the most....wudnt be able to see at all...the thank u list is endless...jus saying good bye..

N how did it go...

well to begin with really nice....mithu came home...n it was gr8..only problem being that she is an early riser n didnt like that i wud sleep till 8 am...but thats routine...she almost everytime she is here its the same....jus this time she had a new line....everytime i didnt do what she wanted she wud say
mane ghare bolavo chho anne pachi mari vaat pan nahi manta
(u call me home n then dont do wat i say)
n then i wud of course do wat she wanted....or give her the dress she wanted to wear etc etc
good part ends here....v didnt go for movie coz no one was interested....by the way tomo i go for it with my school friends.....
there was such a bad traffic jam on the way to nashik...that 3 hour journey tool 7 hours...so v were on road without AC in this hot weather getting roasted in the car....
by the time v reached v were so tired still had lunch then i went off to sleep again without fan or AC coz current wasnt there bcoz of load shedding......so u can imagine how …

my few next days..

m so excited..mithila is coming home..she is gonna be there till sunday..v r going for a 2 day picic at manas resort (actually dad has a conference there..its still a picnic for both of us)...i wont have to decide menu for dinner..thank god...jus cant come up with something to eat daily...wen mom pops the question aaje rate su banavu...n i m like blank.....so for next few days theres no problem...on friday is ba's birthday..plannin to go for CHEENI KUM..its a light hearted comedy n i think it gonna be a nice movie...loved the theme..64yr old man falls for 34 yr old woman n then has to patao 58 yr old sasur....sounds good na...i think so too..n actors r gr8 too..its amitabh tabu n paresh rawal....looking forward to it too...n of course the week finishes off in style as v have anu's god dhana function...looking forward to meet milan jiju....m so happy n excited for anu......so seems like next few days r gonna be fun......cant jus wait..

kya karu ye internet ka....

daily internet doesnt work in evening....its so frustrating....coz thats the time i have all to myself...n i was looking forward to using it to write n daily thats the time there is no internet service......today being sunday m at home this time n can write..but dont have much time as i have to go out with my friends for METRO...at least thats what the plan is.....hopefully v get tickets....will write more soon abt things crowding my mind.....guess will have to sit in afternoons now......i sleep then but will have to cut down on that i guess....

N the final result:

looks tempting dont u think...

Yesterday and today...

yesterday i thought everything was going wrong with me....my neck got sprained..my internet connection wasnt working....nothing good on tv....n my movie plan got cancelled...but that was until today..even today the movie is cancelled (kedar m gonna give u one punch for postponing n finally cancelling..will give one on himali's behalf too)...there is nothing good on tv...but neck is better today (took few analgesics n rubbed anaflam...n it thankfully worked)...my internet connection is great (uptil now that is..cant guarantee how long it will work)...my patient (the 7yr old kid) praised me...thats what her mom said that she said my hand was good that she didnt feel pain when i was working...that did a lot good for my mood...so all in all...the day till now was definately better than yesterday

spiderman 3

what i liked :
1 the way tobey maguire acted as the bad spiderman
2 the moral : what he says in the end u always can choose between right n wrong...n its in ur hand to choose the right...
3 the special effects

what i didnt like:
very routine predictable run of the mill story n suspense....

my day...

just thought wud write something abt my daily routine...jus writing it this one time coz its pretty much the same daily...most of the blogs i read describe what they did or what they gonna do....so i thought for once i can write it....i went to clinic today morning as usual....did routine work..silver fillings, extractions, scaling ,root canals etc etc...yest i did root canal of a small girl that was interesting....as i did the it entirely by myself...n was impressed with myself abt the way i handled the child..she was jus 7 yr old....n was quite uncooperative...but i handled her well...other than that went for walk with himali n kedar yest...attended study class at night...today have no plans for evening as yet...will go for a movie tomo will himali n kedar...then will post my review abt LIFE IN METRO....so u see this is what i do mostly daily....not an exactly hip hop life...or nothing new happening either.......oh ya n i have 1 more news...as i was busy writing my wedding blog didn…

ta ra rum pum...

this is an ok ok movie...not that gr8 at all....not whats expected from saif n rani...still there r few points which r shown very beautifully in this movie....i liked the way they show the transition the family takes when they go bankrupt...there is no grumbling or fighting or name calling or pointing fingers at each other...i mean they go bankrupt n it is saif's fault largely...but rani takes it in stride....she has seen happy times with him n is perfectly fine to go along in bad time...she doesnt even get angry with her husband for a second coz of whom they r in such position....she doesnt show reluctance to work...she is willing to give him a second chance....encourages him when he is low....wonderful characterisation of rani...saif's character not too bad either...loves rani unconditionally.. helpful..he too peps her up...he feels bad abt her abt her facing all the difficulties but he is not in a position to do anything much...he is pretty helpless abt their dire state....…

weddings continued....

be it any caste any community..they all have different customs different traditions....but for the guy n the gal in the end it doesnt matter...what matters is they have each other...the vows..they r so sacred....to live upto it is something...n to have someone take these vows for u....its so touching...to mean so much to someone that he feels like taking these vows for u....n it must be such a gr8 feeling to feel this special thing that u want to take these vows for him...to know u r someones world n vice versa is so humbling...u feel such gratitude for the almighty for giving u this person in ur life..and our whole family joins us in this celebration...feels so good that v r able to give so much joy to our parents....n spread the smile around....its such a wonderful occasion..

weddings continued....

the bride in all the finery....getting ready for a new life in a new place in a new family....the groom looking forward to taking his bride home...be it love marriage or arranged....the excitement the nervousness is just the same...how long u know a person doesnt matter....what matters is this is the person u gonna spend rest of ur life with....some marriages happen easily..some after a lot of struggle...but everything seems worthwhile on this day....the fact that u with the person u wanted to be makes everything seem alright....the wait ends on this day..

weddings....

it is such a wonderful occasion...the joy is so unique...it can be seen so clearly in all pictures....as they take vows for better or for worse...to stand by each other...their eyes hold such a promise of their future together...

love is...

love is...when u wanna be with someone jus coz u wanna take care of him coz u know u can take best care of him as u know u love him most
love is...when u wanna be with someone jus to make that person smile....
love is...when ur source of happiness is in the smile of that someone...jus seeing that person smile makes u smile
love is....u cant eat what he likes without sharing with that person coz u know how much he loves it....
love is....u start keeping a track of things he needs n u know he always forgets to get it.....
love is...u want to be with someone just so that u make so many memories with him that the memories r there even if he isnt....
love is....u wanna spend 24 hours with him just once so that u get prepared to face a lifetime without him......coz in those 24 hours u live a lifetime with him.....u can cook for him...u can watch a movie with him late into the night.....u can have a dance with him....u can listen jus once when he sings only for u.....
lo…

lack of faith..

it upsets me endless that most of patients have so less faith in doctors....when they come to me...most of the time they dont complain as i have this problem or that toothache..but they say i had got this done from some doc n the tooth is paining...or the tooth u worked on last time is worse now...n when i check its always some other problem n not anything wrong done by me or any other doc.....i have to keep my temper in check then....n inform the pt wat the prob is.....arre u dont take care of ur body ur health ur teeth n when something goes wrong they blame the last doc who had treated them...arre then treat urself na if u so good at that...here v spend 5 or more yrs studing working hard earning a degree not to be doubted by the fools who r much less intelligent than us n think too gr8 of themselves.....u come to us mostly when the disease has progressed so much that v can hardly do anything....n then u doubt our treatment.....funnier still is u try n tell us the treatment.....cant…

my 1st attempt at writing...

this is the 1st time i m sitting n writing something seriously.....m a bit scared....coz when i start writing i dont know what all is gonna come out..there is so much within me waiting to be expressed n its like i wud be exposing my soul to one n all...to those who know me n those who dont...m not very bothered abt those who dont know me...but those who do...my family n friends...coz many things which will be written in coming days my innermost feelings i havent told to any1 except my darling bro shubu...n my friend sudeep...so m afraid people may judge me.....pl dont do that...or else those who know me dont read my blogs....this is the sole reason why its taken me so many days contemplating n thinking whether i shd write or no...but today m taking this plunge...as my brother shubu says its a good release to pen down our thoughts.....so shubu thanks for ur advice m taking this one.....this is just an introduction to my thoughts....so dont get confused...most of the things i do its lik…
