The 500 mark!

This is the 503 rd post! Which means, that I have officially crossed the 500 milestone.
I don't even know if this is a milestone at all, because, my blogger profile tells me that I have been blogging almost 6 years and that averages to about less than a 100 posts a year.
Again I don't know if this is a milestone or not, but one fact that is absolutely sound and clear to me is that I can't believe that I have wrote so much.
And looking back to the last two years, I can't believe that I actually wrote some posts that made sense, sense enough to have discussions about.
I have ranted. I have shared my dilemmas, my observations, have blabbered absolute nonsense but now I that I have done that for about 6 odd years, I have a repository of what I thought and what I was thinking, of the past that was then, a future which is the present!

But first, I have to thank THE person who pushed me in to blogging (not literally) and then got me hooked!
*Obviously, he is the one person who I don't think even reads what I write any more, comments therefore obviously are a scarce commodity by him*.
So, yes, the bf introduced me to the world of blogs.
His writings for obvious reasons caught my fancy, and trust me, if he writes about things other than technology, his emotions still capture your heart.
I used to read, his writings.

But then I started writing on my own. Mainly quotations, and stuff that I read and reproduced the same on my blog (which was at Yahoo 360 that time), but then I realised that I actually had a lot to say and finally after much coaxing from the bf, I shifted to blogger.

I am not a prolific writer, but I think, I did impress a couple of people here and there because today those very people are the greatest friends that I have. They are a couple who blogged as pseudonymous but gave out their true identities to me, because we became friends.
You know the best pat about becoming buddies through blogs is, that, when you start to blog you are not a 4 year old (the 4 year old now may have the capacity and the intelligence, I as a 4 year old din even have a computer, forget internet!) who is all innocence, as we have grown older, we all made a conscious decision to befriend people revealing limited information and slowly building it up. As fellow bloggers, we first read your thoughts before we judged and the innocence of a 4 year old returned.

I just want to thank all my blog friends who are still virtual friends, and blog friends who are friends with me out side the virtual world, fellow bloggers, readers and anonymous readers for all the love and support that I have been showered with!

And, a HUGE thanks to the bf, because had I not decided to impress him further, I would have never blogged and reached this mark!

Happy Blogging & Happy Reading!

I have done absolutely nothing productive since morning. I even missed out on the exercises that I have been doing now a days!
I am in office. Bored stiff.
The AC is too cold, and honestly despite the fact that there a drafting that needs to get over and get settled within the coming week, I JUST don’t feel like working. Somehow the application of mind is not happening.
The world around is becoming a happening place, the best friend is ready to launch her own label and that probably gives me immense happiness, because it was something that I always dreamnt for her.
As for me, I think I am the most confused person EVER. I want so much from life, that in the end nothing really falls into place. Passion dwindles on and off.. and I am left wondering if this is what I was meant to do.. at all? But nonetheless I do get excited on certain days when I have so much to do and at the end of the day I sleep a satisfied person.
I have started cycling. Early in the morning, followed by some yoga. And I have noticed that I am in a happier place on the days when I make it a point to get up and exercise.
There is so much to say. The words just seem to disappear.
So, I am gonna just cut the randomness here and wish you all have a great great weekend!

PS: I had to remove the previous post because it was office related and din want any bad blood even by accidental chance.

"Great Moments"

"Great moments often catch us unaware-beautifully wrapped in what others may consider a small one"

I have been meaning to actually write about a lot of things, but unfortunately after the whole day of typing and staring into the computer- often for no reason at all.. sort of discourages me to get on the computer again and start typing. 
The main reason behind this super duper laziness is that, my right arm starts hurting after the whole day of typing and all and then, there is my Blackberry, that keeps going "PING" the whole day and keeps me updated :P 

But nevertheless, I have been going over posts, and commenting where ever I can :) 

The good thing out of the whole thing is that I have re- started reading. 
I am reading the most talked about "Hunger Games"  the review will come after I read the entire trilogy, but I have finally started to read at my own pace..
Not for finishing the book, but for, actually enjoying the book!

The office took us to Goa for the annual retreat, and for the first time in my life, I attended the "HR Sessions", which all the hot shots MNC's have. 
I had fun. 
I actually made it a point to have fun, to talk to people but not put my heart out on my sleeve :) 
Clicked loads of pictures (That I am yet to segregate). 

And, well, bf has been traveling far and wide himself, and I can't stop wishing that I could have been with him! 

Rest all is great.. gonna try and update more often :)
Cheers and Happy Summers!

Plain Truth!

I am not a huge fan of Amir Khan.
I seriously think that he is a very pompous mean guy.. (Yup, I am true blood SRK fan camp girl);
But Satyamev Jayate bowled me over.

It was honest to God, plain truth, put extremely plainly to us. The people who matter, the people, who ignore the every day truth that is reported in the newspapers not as "Breaking Stories", but in the corner somewhere, and not as a part of a statistics or a survey that randomly comes out, but about he people who have actually suffered.
There were tears, but, I am glad, that none of the women who came on the show broke down emotionally to get the TRP's high.. or stating controversial statements with a background score that makes the controversy larger than what it really is.

Of course, this particular episode touched a chord somewhere, because, after hearing what people had to say about having a girl child, I truly thanked my stars that I exist.

It is the sad truth that people as educated as doctors or professors or teachers believe in the whole "Beta khandaan ka chirag hai" funda.
No offense boys, but seriously, girls are prettier, they are like the cutest babies and above all they too are human, they have exactly two hands, two legs, one face with two eyes a nose and two years.. the only difference is that they have a vagina and a pair of breasts.

It is the woman who bears the children, imagine, if there is no woman, how are you going to have children? The so called "Khandaan" will only not be there.
And, if a male acts dumb in the family, the women of the family are not expected to encourage the practice of miscarrying because the pregnant lady is carrying a female child!

The truth really did hit the heart.
It was amazing to know that the literate act like the illiterates and rural and the poor act like intelligent human beings.

The Doctors should learn their lesson and clean up their acts, the giver of life, the ones equated to Gods, should not encourage let alone indulge in such practices!

If there is one thing that I am sure Amir Khan will be able to achieve is to hit the heart.. now I only hope that he is also able to stir the conscience of the people and actually help root out the evils that hold our society back!

Kudos to Satyamev Jayate!
