And stand by your side.

Reacting positively to a Negative situation...

What do you do when bottom falls out?
When the bubble breaks?
When the market is saturated?
When it looks as if your dreams are turning to ashes in your hands?
Remember this...KEEP ON BELIEVING!!

You've not lost everything until you've lost your faith!
And thats your choice...NEVER AN ACCIDENT!
You reserve the right to choose your reaction to whatever happens.
You always have the choice to react POSTIVELY OR NEGATIVELY.

Decide today to react positively...
I will be REJOICING -NEVERTHELESS
My dreams may be frurstrated ; nevertheless I will keep standing on my strong feet of faith!
This could turn out to be my shining hour !
I can turn tragedy in triumph!

This is my opportunity to build the greatest treasure a person can possess - a fantastic reputation
I shall choose to inspire people in my time of suffering
I shall achieve respect because of my courage in this enormous difficulty.
Faith is reacting postively to a negative situation!!!

lessons in humility

sometimes when you are feeling important
sometimes when your ego is in bloom,
sometimes when you take it for granted,
that you 're the best qualified person in the room,

sometimes when you feel your going
would leave an unfalliable hole.
Just follow this simple instruction,
And see how it humbles your soul.

Put your hands in a bucket of water,
Immerse them up to your wrist,
Pull them out and the hole that remains,
Is a measure of how you'll be missed.

You may splash all you please when you enter,
you may stir up the water galore,
But stop - and you'll find in a minute,
That it looks just the same as before.

the moral of this is quite simple,
Just always do the best you can,
Be proud of yourself - but remember,
there is no indespensable MAN !

Dil Hai Ki Manta Nahi....A Cheesy delight :)

this is actually a very tasty dish invented by my dad...
ideal for fasts....n also otherwise...very easy to make n very tasty too....


ingredients

method:
boil or bake the potato...
put all the ingredients in a bowl..
mix properly so that salt n pepper r evenly mixed...
bake in microwave for 2 min...


n then ENJOY it...
its really tasty but high cal so not advisable for those who r fasting to lose weight...can add a green capsicum too tastes amazing with it..can put tomato ketchup if u not eatin it during a fast...

N its so tasty that ye dil always maange more...thats why dad named it DIL HAI KI MANTA NAHI :)

Joker In The Pack

well 4 things i had said which made me buy the book r :
the tag line......An irreverent view of life at IIMs the dedication...to the great Indian middle class , for we dont know if what v r today is because of them or despite them
the name of the book....JOKER IN THE PACK
the poem in the beginning of the book
we see a star
and admire its glitter
the twinkle catching our eye,
and all through our lives,
we only see the twinkle,
whenever we see the star,

we know but fail to see
that all it takes to be a star
is an unending fire
A fire thats beneath the surface
the fire that made it the star it is.

corrections...

well gilchrist is retiring at the end of the series i guess.....as he is playing game against india today....that was his last match on his homeground WACA stadium in perth...
still a century is a good way to bid farewell to ur hometown folks...

well said....

I'm waiting for someone like Steven Spielberg or James Cameroon some other great person like Ang Lee to make a film, a film about a brown, thin, scrawny Indian guy who doesn't speak English too well. If they ever have a character like that and Google it, I'm sure they'll find me."

this is wat shahrukh said wen asked why he didnt do hollywood movie....love u for ur modesty n humble attitude.......

ATTENTION ALL WOMEN....

this is jus to tell women pl dont wear lipstick especially dark ones wen u go to visit ur dentist.....
it is extremely annoying that our instruments n gloves or hands get smudged with the lipstick....

good bye Gilly...

i felt great that adam gilchrist's last match was a great one...
he luckily got a wonderful departing gift scoring 118 runs in final match n taking his team to victory....that too at his home ground...well this an end of one of finest batsman and wicket keeper the game has seen
not all sportsmen are as lucky...eg Zidane ,Beckham...i felt really sad for zidane the way things went for him in the last game of his life...

but this moment is bittersweet...feels bad that i wont be able to see this wonderful batsman bat again...felt bad wen steve waugh, javagal shrinath and retired too....
feels one by one all the players whom we grew up watching play r retiring..
at such moments we realize how v too have grown up.....
gives us a sense of our age...
how we dont even recognise most new players playing the game these days...
feel they r not the ones of our generation...
same goes true for even indian cricketers...in the 20 20 world cup not a single name was known....

they say na time and tide waits …

our daily guest

check out the video i have taken of a parrot...i think its cool...lemme know wat u think...
feels nice to have successfully completed an experiment....
took me nearly 4 hours of work to copy it from camera to computer to uploading on internet....
took a while to figure out how to jus copy selected portion from the camera...
feels nice...

LOVE...

Soul, heart, and body, we thus singly name,
Are not in love divisible and distinct,
But each with each inseparably link'd.
One is not honour, and the other shame,
But burn as closely fused as fuel, heat, and flame.

They do not love who give the body and keep
The heart ungiven; nor they who yield the soul,
And guard the body. Love doth give the whole;
Its range being high as heaven, as ocean deep,
Wide as the realms of air or planet's curving sweep

after that jasufoi had to get her PAN card made....thankfully it is being done very close to where i work...so went with her n got the form filled...

An evening to remember..

i am talking abt the evening i spent with tanvi and ushma doing something that i (n also many more girls love doing) SHOPPING :)

well it was not jus for me or anything..i had a mission..i had to buy b'day gifts for falak and ushma...baby shower gift for sujalben...a gift for tanvi n raja...

but anyways i love shopping be it for myself or for anyone else...its the process i love...of going to a shop..seeing variety of nice nice stuff...getting confused what to buy what not...is the price worth it or will i get it at lesser rate somewhere else...or the million dollar question "do i really need this"
or what i require most at the moment...

well this time though i didnt have to bother abt last two questions as i was buyin what i needed only...as at home v were out of cosmetics (3 women living under one roof...2 actually but one living in hostel )..so i was instructed by mom to get one or two lips sticks..well i needed no more encouragement...

after a lot of time looking around..…

i m hoping i m not too rusty as i m writing after a long long time...
also i have decided that even if i cant write on my own i shd at least put something abt the days happenings or a poem or something on my blog at least four times a week if not daily..


now you guys must be wondering what is this VIP syndrome
well wen a doctor or doctors close family member becomes a patient....has any problem n gets himself or herself treated some complication which normally doesnt occur to other patients strikes him/her despite all the care n precautions taken....

as i underwent appendisectomy last yr....well i developed most 3 uncommon complications...

1 spinal headache :for those who dont know what it is a short explanation.....for any operation v anesthetise the patient right.....so the anesthetic medicine is injected around the spinal cord...this causes certain disturbance in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) which is around the spinal cord...
so after the operation wen the patient gets conscious if he s…
