when is the right time????

is there everA RIGHT TIME for important events in life or do we have to rise to the occasion and meet the challenge head on wen it happens…. Is 16 a right time to learn driving or 18 or 25……does a person who sits in driver’s seat at 25 for the first time be less apprehensive abt it than a person at 18????

Is it easier to go to school at 5 yrs than at 3????if u put a kid in kindergarden or nursery at 5 instead of 3 will be easily leave his mothers hand and go smiling to school on the first day???? Is a surgical resident who does his first surgery at 30 more confident than a surgical resident at 26???in india we go to medical or dental school at 18..and in usa its 22 at the earliest so wen they r cutting the cadavers, are the students there more prepared less scared than the students who cut the cadavers at 18??? Some people become parents at 25….some at 30…so are the people who become parents at 30 better parents than those at 25??? Our grandparents were parents when they were 19 or ev…

something abt rhythm...

I thought it wud be nice to write something abt myself…the way I see myself ,know myself….it wud help me I thought to understand the working of my mind better…..is it not said if u write down something thoughts r crystallised and understood better…….also I wud like to share some of my inner feelings abt myself with my relatives and friends (I guess they r the ones who read my blog…don’t think I have a lot of unknown people checking out my blog…so its safe I guess..and even if someone I don’t know reads it who cares……that’s me) I am traditional..... I think its good to stand when ur teacher enters and leavesthe classroom to show respect….i don’t like the way people eat in classrooms abroad…I feel wen we r in school studing ,learning there is certain amount of sanctity about the place……and that should be maintained and our behavior should be according…there is a time and place for everything…do we sit in canteen and study??? No na…we go to library to study….then how can we eat in class w…

egg plant parmesan

this is basically the recipe i got from amy's food blog....she writes recipes much better than i do giving right proportions and quantities...so u better check it out here

i ll give u the whole procedure in steps and i ll write what modifications i have done to suit the situation

u ll also need to crush 2 cloves of garlic...grate the cheese...





step 2

problem for christina

in order that there is no fight among his own doctors , the chief asks another well known surgeon to consider the position of chief of surgery ,dr colin marlowe......it turns out that he is christina's ex professor and ex-boyfriend........this creates problem between burke and christina...and burke saying that engagement is off as christina does not like him as a person and that she is just placating him........lets see how she manages to convince burke of her love

meredith is back from dead and she is all her...........she has taken her mother's death in stride not letting it affect her.....her half sister suzan manages to convince her to have a family dinner with her dad....meredith is still not sure how to go abt it...derek joins her of course....meredith hits off well with suzan and has a good time.....while derek convinces meredith's dad that everything will be fine between him and his daughter...

my weekend

my every weekend seems to be quite a happening one....there r quite many weekend posts i guess..

this weekend too was very special.....sometimes in midst of despair comes happiness...thats wat happened with anu i guess......she was not well for last couple of weeks and it aggravated last couple of days...so kailasmasi took a flight to mumbai and masi ,anu and milanjiju came to vasai to get a complete check up done....it turned out to be colitis or infection in intestine....nothing major...now she is fit and fine.....of course if she is treated by my dad and mom she had to be fine in no time...

well so for me spending time with masi and anu jiju was bonus.......was not expecting to meet them anytime soon so i was very happy.....and so was anu....as she was sad abt having to cancel visit to ahmedabad previous weekend as jiju had met with bike accident......so she too was not expecting to meet masi and the rest of us so soon.......

we all went to bordi on saturday.....as there was a func…

I WANT....

one of the most beautiful poems i have come across......

i want to give you flowers.
i want to give you my love.
i want to share with you my feelings.
i want to tell you my story.
i want to feel you near to me.
i want to share my loneliness.
i want to share my happiness..


i want to show you the trees in spring.
i want to show you fields in winter.
i want to dance on the wind.
i want to sing in sunshine.
i want to show you the waterfalls.
i want to walk barefoot in rain.
i want to sit on top of mountains.


i want.
i want to give u roses.
i want to laugh with you.
i want to cry with you.
i want to breathe the air with you.
i want to spend my years with you.
i want to go on holidays with you.
i want to grow old with you.


i want you.
i want your love.
i want your thoughts.
i want your warmth.
i want to be needed.
i want our love to grow strong.
i want our children to grow tall.
through our love,
through our devotion,
through our examples.
i want so much.


i want to live next to God.
i want to serve Him.
i want to obey Him.

THIS WILL MESS YOUR HEAD :)

3 men go into a hotel.....the man behind the desk said room was $30..so each man paid $10 and went to the room....

a while later man at deak realized that tariff is $25...so he gives $5 to bell boy and asks him to return it to them...

the bell boy is confused as to how to divide $5 amongst 3 men...to he gave each man $1 and himself kept $2...

this means....3 men paid $9 for the room..which is total of $27 ,add to that $2 the bell boy kept so it comes to $29.......where is the other dollar?????????

keep thinking...if u come up with some answer...lemme know too :)

my wonderful weekend :)

its so funny...sometimes things happen jus out of the blue ,unplanned (m talking abt good things here)....and as u not looking forward to it ,it jus makes u so much more happy :)
like u driving down a road and then u take a bend and LO!!!!!!! BEHOLD!!!!!! a scenery unfolds before ur very eyes....
a treat is so much more sweeter wen its unexpected....

i had planned a nice sunday outing with rehana....which included lunch at mochas (jus the thought of chocolate avalanche is making my mouth water) and movie......so i was looking forward to a nice sunday and what do i get...........well so much more than jus nice....

the weekend unfolds with me getting an sms from mohini on saturday morning asking me and chitra to come over to her place for night out...initially was irritated with her as she had not replied to my smses abt planning a weekend earlier in the week and at last moment had come up with this plan....and i was not sure if chitra cud make it too...

but sometimes good things do fall i…

beauty and the geek

this is one of the few tv shows i enjoyed...it was great to see the how each of them evolved...beauties learnt to use their brains and the geeks learnt the is more to being a person than jus a person's intelligence....am sure most of u know abt this show so not getting more into it....i saw this show for the first time this season.....and megan and scooter were the rightful winners....the other finalists were cece and nate....

and let me tell u cece was one big all time bitch.....i disliked her from the start of the show....she just showed her importance , used people , was rude to others,very selfish ,thought she was the best...there is not one good thing i can say about her...so she knew how she was, coz wen the host announced that the winner wud not be judged based on a quiz or challenge but the other contestants were going to vote for the winner she was the only one who was very angry.....she even stopped talking to megan coz she realizes that the game was slipping out of her h…

MURPHY'S LAWS for MOVING

am sure u all are gonna have a good laugh when u read this post...
no matter how many boxes u have ,u will always need one morethe more ur friends promises to help ,the more likely it is that they will have something come up the day u movewhatever u need is at the bottom of the box u taped shut ten minutes agonow that u r moving and no longer need it , u will find the item u spent 2 yrs looking forthe tape,scissors,the markers and the screw driver are all familiar with the rules of HIDE AND SEEKyou will never break anything cheap that you never liked anyway......only family heirlooms get broken during a moveno matter how large the new place is it will not have enough room once you begin to move inif u stay up all night packing for the movers...they will be late :)

food for thought

i like posting quotes on and off as and when i come across some of them that strike a chord with me

it's good to have money and the things money can buy
but its good , too, to check up once in a while and make
sure that you haven't lost the things that money cant buy

how a man plays a game shows something of his character
how he loses shows all of it

speed......

life is fast these days......everyone wants everything fast , soon....everyone loves speed.......doesn't it feel exhilarating when you driving your car fast.......zooming on the express way...zip zap zoom....
even our daily chores need to be finished fast.....u have ur shower in 5 mins...breakfast in another ten min.....and u out of house....running to catch your train......most women are working ladies..they have to finish their kitchen chores and rush as well......well this is mumbai...the city does that to u..very nicely shown in song jame raho in taare zameen par..

am a bit lucky in that sense my daily routine does not require me to be fast......coz as much as i love speed in evry form and find it enjoyable....i feel it makes us robots......we forget to enjoy what we are doing at that time and place...coz mentally we are already in the next place where we have to be....and figuring it out how we are going to reach there asap...and wen we reach the place two we r in place 3......…

HAPPY DOCTORS DAY......KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK :)

Wen I wrote the post yesterday I had forgotten that today was doctor’s day…the post came at absolutely right time on the eve of doctors day…..well first of all I wish all the doctors of the world a very happy doctors day.....most of us seem to be doing a good job and I wish good luck to all of medical fraternity to continue the good work they are doing…. Today I wish to write a message to all the non medical people…..please have faith in your doctor…if u don’t have faith in him….if he does not inspire faith in you abt him change your doctor but whenever u r taking treatment from a particular doctordon’t second guess him…..what I mean is YOU don’t question his line of treatment…if u want u can go to an equally qualified doctor for a second opinion…if u have a doctor in your family who is in some other city he can talk with your doctor what the problem is what treatment is being given to him, why it is being given to him and I am sure your doctor will not mind that for your mental satis…
