Go Goa!!

It's been quite a few days since this blog was started and what better to start with than with my recent short vacation to Goa!!

A sudden trip to a beautiful destination,
simply excited my senses to no limit,
a peaceful journey and lots of lazy times,
coupled with lots of water and red wine,
from one coast to another,
we went from Bagha to Calangute and then,
to Aquada!,
if this wasn't enough for the day we had a midnight drive to Anjuna,
there we sipped on some limon and ate "rolled" up pancakes,
On the next day we rode to Arambol and then to Morjhim
and finally reached the clean waters of Vagatur,
while we were fascinated and "captured" by the waters themselves,
the famous "starry" fort added the Bollywood Masala to the Beach! (the fort at Vagatur was the one in the movie - Dil Chahta Hai, a popular Hindi Movie about people in the city folk)

With an Avenger, a Karizma and a Pulsar between us we took the city by speed, style and storm!
On the last day we soared the skies and though we had a fantastic view from up there,
the parasailing didn't quite enthrall us...

The street shops and the amount of time and energy spent bargaining left us quite drained,
we took a couple or more buses to reach our end station,
where we ate a few thalis and not to forget the rasberry dollies!
for taking the train back home,
a lil' bribe clinched the deal and we got our berths to sleep,
and in a blink of an eye we're back home wondering how the days will go,
dreaming of our quick but memorable holiday by the sea...

Technical Barriers to Effective Communication!

I am feeling on the top of world, not that generally I don't feel special, but today was a different high!


After ages, I was up against the P.C. with all my brawn, it was later when i began to use my brain, did things really work!

For the ones in the dark, I was trying to install a web cam and get my headphones with the mic in it to work!

Right from fiddling with the speakers, the volume control options, the bloody control panel, to making a thousand (5) test calls, and asking friends to become guinea pigs to help me in the effort, to finally hearing my own voice!

Then to search for the product id (webcam), didn't have the installation cd, so had to google for the driver online, then to download and set up, and then find the right controls on programme to see image clearly, to finally being able to see me!


what a high, what a beautiful feeling, not because i can see me or hear me, but because i know someone else will be!

I feel like i'm on the top of the world right now!!

Rock, Pebbles and Sand - Important Things in Life

A philosophy professor stood before his class with some items on the table in front of him.

When the class began, wordlessly he picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with rocks, about 2" in diameter.He then asked the students if the jar was full. They agreed that it was.

So the professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar. He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles, of course, rolled into the open areas between the rocks.He then asked the students again if the jar was full. They agreed it was.

The professor picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar. Of course, the sand filled up everything else.He then asked once more if the jar was full. The students responded with a unanimous "Yes."

"Now," said the professor, "I want you to recognize that this jar represents your life. The rocks are the important things - your family, your partner, your health, your children - things that if everything else w…


So thanks to some prodding from my friend Shri, I decided to go watch this movie today. I'm not upset I did, but I'm certainly not happy. It was sort of like watching Love, Sex aur Dhokha in a way. Graphic, very close to reality, and loud.

The movie begins with Anurag Kashyap saying that it's a just a movie and that he doesn't support the use of drugs, drinking and driving and that it's a fictional story which is debatable because like Dev D he used an actual incident as one of the pivotal moments in the movie, in this case the moment is when 5 kids high on coke, drinks, and generally on life, speed across town and in one of the turns end up killing two people who were on a scooter. They were driving a Hummer.

Anyways, to come back to the timeline of things, the movie begins by shocking you. I know I've watched a number of movies which involve sequences of kisses in front of my parents / relatives without flinching. But I would not be able to watch this movie …
