Welcome 08

The pen has been silent for a long time now. It's not like i didn't have anything to write or convey.
The paucity of time coupled with the lack of willpower to sit down and make the effort to consolidate thoughts led to this hiatus from the blogging screen.
Well it's time to make amends and start 2008!

For starters - welcome to 2008!!

The new year promises some fresh starts!
There's Tina & Gautam starting their married life - wishing them the very best of luck!
Then there's me - planning to be a better person this year - less crap, more results!

Here are some things I hope will happen this year:-
- We start saving up for a new house this year - lets see if we can get it in the next 2 years or so
- We hope to be in LA for the new years 2009 - so mebbe Sups can get her passport done before that.
- We can spend more time with the family - whether its n Gurgaon or Kolkata - in a meaningful manner.
- Less of arguments and more on results for me and everyone else around me.
- Sups and me could lose a few inches around the waist by maintaining a more strict regime on that treadmill of ours!
- India will win the one day series down under and teach the AUSSIE MONKEYS a thing or two.

OK - the last one was more wishful than anything else - but then again I hope it happens!!

If life was a Hollywood film... the action would be intense,
It's actually closer to Bollywood... with the same people and the same stories.

Giving up on real life opportunities to create the iconic twists, the hallmark of great cinema and it's storytellers. If every story had the same ending, how would one imagine the what-ifs of life?

Some stories come out best when they start with an ending. It makes for more poignant stories when you deal with certain characters. There is an element of drama on an unfulfilled love story or unrequited love too.

The mundane is never enough for some of us. The happily ever after is an ending from the fairytales of the brothers Grimm.

The piano man

Sitting bored in the mall when we could be shopping for her gift. The lady is on an official call, so I'm sitting by the wayside observing the man in the centre of the atrium. He's playing a piano. Hence the name - piano manHe's playing a melody oblivious to the sea of humanity around him. No mean task as it is. His tunes run a plethora of melody with no fixed agenda as it is. He looks around hoping someone would make a request - but the crowd treats him like they would an invisible entity. There's pain in the back of his mind and heart. Nothing hurts an artiste more than invisibility. He never knew he'd end up like this playing the walking melody to thousands. His music had always been planned on the good graces of melody with people singing in chorus.
That things did not go as planned, well no surprise there. Circumstance might have been fortuitous had he been willing to bend over. Ever the true blooded artiste, he'd chosen the path less traveled.Now the wai…

All the formative years were spent here, and we did form up well at the end of it. Today, people say that the Campionites are quite snooty and snobbish. Never really felt it at that point of time. We had a mixed crowd and more …
