Life Rocks @ a different place ...........still.....

No worries !!
I am here !! I am back !!

There was / may be , still a brief stay or hault but that's the way life is !! :-)
A lot has gone by in the few fast forward weeks.

A lot more is still awaited :-)
So where was I or rather where I might be ..... that only 2 persons can tell - Karan and God !!
So I am here , why disturb god !!

@ Train Journey

It was a long journey .... a fatiguing one but as I always say you never pass judgements so quickly !!

So We were 4 people...and then there was this sweet bubbly girl - MIND IT ...a lawyer in making.... wow !! These days you don't find that a sweet bubbly lawyer girls :-)
Besides being a sweet girl the one thing which I liked was the fact that her Dad was an IPS !! man !! I love/respect/admire/ these IAS /IPS people. The real India.

The journey was long...very long...and Indian trains you know....how "FAST" they are ...
From evening assorted voices started doing the rounds......which contuniued till we got down at our destination....poor people who were still there .......
"Chai Chai " Tea - Tea "........"garam garam samosa"...."paani paani " uff....aur kuch bhi hai....

Then there was this person whom I think might have been a good bet at one of those top B-Schools !! like Symbi's and all what was his tagline - " Namkeen wala idhar hai , aapka dhyaan kidhar hai " - BELIEVE ME . His basket of namkeen was full when he started his trip and with this tagline the basket was near it's end when he returned !! huh !!
Marketing is a tough nut to crack .

What else - as always the train food was --yyuukkkk -- but we had some delicious cherries which were sweet as the owner.

PS - I COULD HAVE TAKEN THE AIR ROUTE BUT WITH ABOUT 6 BAGS LOADED TO CAPACITY I HAD NO OPTION BUT TO TAKE LALU JI's HELP.

@ Pune -

As always Indian stations are every busy,ever crowded and ever and ever chaos.Pune was no exception.
But as sometimes , I was a bit happy in this chaos as well . How ?
Well,CARS. What better way if someone comes to pick you up :-) The entire journey's pines away....

The car was loaded but what about the rest of the load. You can't expect an Esteem to behave like a Bolero. So ,bring a Bolero.

And it actually came. How ? The sweet kind-hearted lawyer girl came to the rescue. And it was a sigh of relief.

And what next ? Come on ....we need to sit in the cars and go :-)

@ Campus -

Pune and rains are like bread and butter.So need I say more.
The "mausam" was lovely and so was the campus. Beautiful.Wait !!

Hostel ? Anyone ? Yup !! Let's c the hostel dude .

or the Hall of residence as it's called ! It's not just any hostel. It's more than a hostel.
With a huge room , attached washrooms and ample space, decent food what more could you ask for in a hostel !!


@ THE PLACE

Pune is a special place. For two reasons . second one is .........Went to meet them at @ private place. Lovely ambience , great food ! Cool mausam !

More to come....

PS - It's not always good to think what you listen When you actually see for yourself it's then the pictures get clear !! I know NOW.You remember .

This "message"is for the person who understands it well.And I know the actual intended person would know now.....

Marriages - The lost "charm"

Old is gold !! So, you never ward of the clutter from your household ??

May be yes may be not !! That's a personal choice........or a family selection...

I don't know WHY ,but,of lately,in the gone-by year 2007 I myself have witnessed or rather seen a number of people who are still - UNMARRIED ?? !!

huh !! No . They are not waiting for me. Neither they are doing anything that high that they are fending off this "grand" celebration.

So,what is it. that is / has , blocked there path to this wonderful institution ?? I have no clues .

BUT,I HAVE THOUGHTS. AS ALWAYS.

Girls,mostly, are nearing / have crossed the age mark of 25.
This apart , some have even skipped over the 35 + mark.

Why ? Why so late ? What's the reason ?

There are an infinity of them -->

WORK PROGRESS
STUDY / EDUCATION
MAKING A MARK-CAREER WISE
SHATTERED / BETRAYED RELATION
SOME NEVER HAD THE TIME TO THINK ABOUT IT ..... :-(
WAITING FOR MR.RIGHT WAS A BAD THOUGHT

AND AND....SOME MIGHT SAY....THE MATCHES WERE FOUND BUT THE HOROSCOPES WERE NOT !!

Good enough grounds for a simple -NO.

Not your fault. May be you never thought that this would be such a high mess issue at a later stage. Now that you're settled , reasonably,you think when your good old school pals are asking you about there son's / daughter's pre-nursery admission -YOU FEEL THE HEAT.

So,what stopped you ?
Your attitude , parents , your never say give -up spirit , your work ,your study or may be your STARS.

That only you could say / tell . How do I know !! ??

All I can make out is that you're - LATE .

Yes ! Everything has a time . A RIGHT TIME. Which in most of the above cases has gone-by .
May be you were not at fault. May be you were . But,the end result is you LOST .

Had you been a little more flexible , a trivial positive and had the power to adjust you would be sitting with the "pictures of flowers/animals/sojourns , with your little ones " .

You missed it ALL.

Some would say there is NO FAULT OF OURS. AGREED !! Then is it mine !
Say YES and then be honest enough to recite your story.
Look what all went wrong , when , why and what could be done at that time.

I am sure ,solutions would flow.Even if they don't you'll be in a better position to know yourself more than anytime .

Gone time won't come .So would the gone life. So,try if you can help noone but yourself .

PS- IT'S NOT ONLY FOR FEMALES, BUT, FOR MALES AS WELL. BECAUSE IF THEY ARE STILL THERE THEN YOU TOO MUST BE NOT VERY FAR.

btw- try this tongue twister -
"Peetal ke patele mein papita peela peela pada pada papita patele mein "

"MIG"ration - move to move


Ever marveled as to why do we walk ? What is the movement all about ? Is it really required ? Can't life be easy and smooth ? Why change ? Why keep on locomoting? Give it a thought. Use your top power.

Change is here.Change is essential .You change everyday as the milieu around you switches. These are some of the old banalities that you took heed ,time and again.

Lets start with the "online" part(since its fast and used even faster). Earlier ,it was hotmail,aol and the likes....then came in yahoo and now gmail. Changed your email. Blogging started off with blogspot now it's flip-flopping towards wordpress. Orkut,then came facebook ,wayn....and another set of "buddy webs".

Earlier you used rediff/yahoo messengers .Now ,please come on Gtalk. WHY ? WHY change ? Why keep alternating ?

What is / was the primary need of such things ? TO BE IN TOUCH. STAY CONNECTED. Someone says dating,making new friends...... Now when you log in and see your orkut - 600+ friends , 3000+scraps, 100+ testimonials,100+videos / album pics nuff. Do you really stay connected with all those 600 "unique"individuals. Or was it that "he added me on and I too. OVER.

I still retrieve the day when I joined orkut after never-ending doggedness of my gang members. That day , I logged in and out of orkut - recall.....roughly 8o times. ECHO. What the F ?Me so purblind . I came in to check who visited ,who scrapped ,who added me...... What was I thinking ? Is this why I am here ? If I genuinely need to be in touch with my allies -where is my phone ? OK cell-phone . This also migrated. Call them up.Fix and meet. FAST AND GREAT. But,NO. "He" joined facebook. I am also joining facebook. Let's delete Orkut. Poor testimonials :-( They say you start we will accompany. ha ha ha Man the "thinker " .Where's the thinking gone ? Bhagwaan janee......

People spend hours on these forums , clicking profiles,adding ,talking on and on and on. How many "new friends" have you made ? Did you find your soulmate ? You wrote a testimonial and did you get one in return ? Can't take it.... I suppose you translated my intents .YES ! That's what counts. I am on orkut. I use yahoo. Till the time "change" comes and say.....need to move out.....KARAN.... Someonetold me ,life's short.....why ravage it !!!

Travel Diaries & more - Make it count

Everytime I travel, I look forward to meeting new people. New places as well can be explored but what is home without humans!? Off lat...
