Its been pretty long that I has posted anything on my blog.. so wanted to write something.. one of my friend.. pinged me on chat..its been more than two years we spoke..not that we fought..just a gap..we were not in can say.. a hi and bye friend...classmate..cut he said hi on chat and asked how is life..I said..its going on..I mean I did not knew what to answer.. then after a while started... when someone asks you howz life..what will be your or going one or say boring.. but how do you want it to be.. you always want it to be happy..

I think.. your life is boring or cool or great just because you want it to be like that.. I mean you are the one who can control your life.. crap.. i dont wanna write more about it.. ..what ever..

Here is something very intersting i got from anuradhagoyal's blog.. its very much true...

..that your thoughts can help you create something that in your present thoughts seems like a miracle.....if you can control your thoughts you can everything in your life, from your physical body to your relationships and the pronlems around the world by creating movements...

" On January 13, 1948, I learnt that Gandhiji had decided to go on fast unto death. The reason given was that he wanted an assurance of Hindu-Muslim Unity... But I and many others could easily see that the real motive... [was] to compel the Dominion Government to pay the sum of Rs 55 crores to Pakistan, the payment of which was emphatically refused by the Government.... But this decision of the people's Government was reversed to suit the tune of Gandhiji's fast. It was evident to my mind that the force of public opinion was nothing but a trifle when compared with the leanings of Gandhiji favourable to Pakistan.

....In 1946 or thereabout, Muslim atrocities perpetrated on Hindus under the Government patronage of Surhawardy in Noakhali made our blood boil. Our shame and indignation knew no bounds when we saw that Gandhiji had come forward to shield that very Surhawardy and began to style him as 'Shaheed Saheb' - a martyr - even in his prayer meetings...

....Gandhiji's influence in the Congress first increased and then became supreme. His activities for public awakening were phenomenal in their intensity and were reinforced by the slogans of truth and non-violence which he ostentatiously paraded before the country... I could never conceive that an armed resistance to the aggressor is unjust...

... Ram killed Ravan in a tumultuous fight... Krishna killed Kansa to end his wickedness... In condemning Shivaji, Rana Pratap and Guru Govind as 'misguided patriots,' Gandhiji has merely exposed his self-conceit... Gandhiji was, paradoxically, a violent pacifist who brought untold calamities on the country in the name of truth and nonviolence, while Rana Pratap, Shivaji and the Guru will remain enshrined in the hearts of their countrymen forever...

....By 1919, Gandhiji had become desperate in his endeavours to get the Muslims to trust him and went from one absurd promise to another... He backed the Khilafat movement in this country and was able to enlist the full support of the National Congress in that policy... very soon the Moplah Rebellion showed that the Muslims had not the slightest idea of national unity... There followed a huge slaughter of Hindus... The British Government, entirely unmoved by the rebellion, suppressed it in a few months and left to Gandhiji the joy of his Hindu-Muslim Unity... British Imperialism emerged stronger, the Muslims became more fanatical, and the consequences were visited on the Hindus...

The accumulating provocation of 32 years, culminating in his last pro-Muslim fast, at last goaded me to the conclusion that the existence of Gandhiji should be brought to an end immediately... he developed a subjective mentality under which he alone was the final judge of what was right or wrong... Either Congress had to surrender its will to him and play second fiddle to all his eccentricity, whimsicality... or it had to carry on without him... He was the master brain guiding the civil disobedience movement... The movement may succeed or fail; it may bring untold disasters and political reverses, but that could make no difference to the Mahatma's infallibility... These childish inanities and obstinacies, coupled with a most severe austerity of life, ceaseless work and lofty character, made Gandhiji formidable and irresistible... In a position of such absolute irresponsibility, Gandhiji was guilty of blunder after blunder...

....The Mahatma even supported the separation of Sindh from the Bombay Presidency and threw the Hindus of Sindh to the communal wolves. Numerous riots took place in Karachi, Sukkur, Shikarpur and other places in which the Hindus were the only sufferers...

....From August 1946 onwards, the private armies of the Muslim League began a massacre of the Hindus... Hindu blood began to flow from Bengal to Karachi with mild reactions in the Deccan... The Interim government formed in September was sabotaged by its Muslim League members, but the more they became disloyal and treasonable to the government of which they were a part, the greater was Gandhi's infatuation for them...

....The Congress, which had boasted of its nationalism and socialism, secretly accepted Pakistan and abjectly surrendered to Jinnah. India was vivisected and one-third of the Indian territory became foreign land to us... This is what Gandhiji had achieved after 30 years of undisputed dictatorship, and this is what Congress party calls 'freedom'...

....One of the conditions imposed by Gandhiji for his breaking of the fast unto death related to the mosques in Delhi occupied by Hindu refugees. But when Hindus in Pakistan were subjected to violent attacks he did not so much as utter a single word to protest and censure the Pakistan government...

Gandhi is being referred to as the Father of the Nation. But if that is so, he had failed his paternal duty inasmuch as he has acted very treacherously to the nation by his consenting to the partitioning of it... The people of this country were eager and vehement in their opposition to Pakistan. But Gandhiji played false with the people...

....I shall be totally ruined, and the only thing I could expect from the people would be nothing but hatred... if I were to kill Gandhiji. But at the same time, I felt that Indian politics in the absence of Gandhiji would surely be proved practical, able to retaliate, and be powerful with armed forces. No doubt, my own future would be totally ruined, but the nation would be saved from the inroads of Pakistan...

....I do say that my shots were fired at the person whose policy and action had brought rack and ruin and destruction to millions of Hindus... There was no legal machinery by which such an offender could be brought to book, and for this reason I fired those fatal shots...

....I do not desire any mercy to be shown to me... I did fire shots at Gandhiji in open daylight. I did not make any attempt to run away; in fact I never entertained any idea of running away. I did not try to shoot myself... for, it was my ardent desire to give vent to my thoughts in an open Court. My confidence about the moral side of my action has not been shaken even by the criticism levelled of against it on all sides. I have no doubt, honest writers of history will weigh my act and find the true value thereof some day in future. "

Philosophy - what ever you say

when you know you are not doing wrong but when your loved once ask you not to do that, and you feel you might repent in future thinking you have not lived your life fully..and also you want to keep your loved once happy.. THEN JUST LIE to them, so that they are happy and you are also happy.. but you should be sure that you are not doing wrong.

i need you baby

you're just too good to be true
can't take my eyes off of you
you'd be like heaven to touch
i wanna hold you so much
at long last love has arrived
and i thank god i'm alive
you're just too good to be true
can't take my eyes off of you

pardon the way that i stare
there's nothing else to compare
the sight of you leaves me weak
there are no words left to speak
but if you feel like i feel
please let me know that it's real
you're just too good to be true
can't take my eyes off of you

I was listening to the 80s Country music.. here is a song I liked..

Artist/Band: Whitley Keith
Lyrics for Song: I'm No Stranger To The Rain
Lyrics for Album: The Essential Keith Whitley
I'm no stranger to the rain
I'm a friend of thunder
Friend, is it any wonder lightning strikes me
I've fought with the devil
Got down on his level
But I never gave in, so he gave up on me

I'm no stranger to the rain
I can spot bad weather
And I'm good at finding shelter in a downpour
I've been sacrificed by brothers
Crucified by loversBut through it all I withstood the pain
I'm no stranger to the rain

But when I get that foggy feeling
When I'm feeling down
If I don't keep my head up, I may drown
But it's hard to keep believing
I'll even come out even
While the rain beats your hope in the ground
And tonight it's really coming down

I'm no stranger to the rain
But there'll always be tomorrow
And I'll beg, steal, or borrow a little sunshine
And I'll put this cloud behind me
That's how the Man designed me
To ride the wind and dance in a hurricane
I'm no stranger to the rain

Oh, no, I'm no stranger to the rain
I'm no stranger to the rain
I'm a friend of thunder
Friend, is it any wonder lightning strikes me
But I'll put this cloud behind me
That's how the Man designed me
To ride the wind and dance in a hurricane
I'm no stranger to the rain

Oh, no, I'm no stranger to the rain

I wish that I could fall in love today

I wish that I could fall in love today
But memories of you stand in the way
And I just can't make my heart find someone new
'Cause it's always much to busy lovin' you

Each night I pray I'll wake at dawn and find
Another in my heart and on my mind
Then I awake I hear my poor heart say
I wish that I could fall in love today
I wish that I could fall in love today
But if I did I know I wouldn't stay
'Cause you'd come between us like you always do
Somehow they never measure up to you
Oh I wish that I could fall in love today..

In this virtual world only I am real

Saturday, August 20, 2005


A group of working adults got together to visit their University lecturer. The lecturer was happy to see them. Conversation soon turned into complaints about stress in work and life.

The Lecturer just smiled and went to the kitchen to get an assortment of cups - some porcelain, some in plastic, some in glass, some plain looking and some looked rather expensive and exquisite.

The Lecturer offered his former students the cups to get drinks for themselves.

When all the students had a cup in hand with water, the Lecturer spoke:

"If you noticed, all the nice looking, expensive cups were taken up,leaving behind the plain and cheap ones. While it is normal that you only want the best for yourselves, that is the source of your problems and stress. What all you wanted was water, not the cup, but we unconsciously went for the better cups."

"Just like in life, if Life is Water, then the jobs, money and position in society are the cups. They are just tools to hold/maintain Life, but the quality of Life doesn't change."

"If we only concentrate on the cup, we won't have time to enjoy/taste the water in it."

"Faith gives us a new vision of the world. Without it we see only the darker side of life. We are still slaves. It is faith which liberates us and makes us see the Spirit of power and love at work in our lives."

focused, when will i or what will make me

I get so many ideas..ideas to change things…ideas to create new things…when ever I am ready with my idea..there would have been number of hours spent on it analyzing it..only then I tell someone or start doing it..but my problem is I start and stop it…infact never stop it but slow down..slow down so much that it takes lot of time to see the final product…I know that it is a mistake..i know that I should start and complete one thing at one time…but I am not sure I am not doing..not sure what is my problem..not sure how to stop this and control myself and be focused…huh, this is becoming sick…I need to change myself…are there any books which will change me or make me stable…or do I have to visit a psychiatrist…looks like I need some type of…what?

The Motocycle Diaries

A friend of mine suggested me to see this movie… so I got the CD and was quite surprised that the whole movie was in Argentina language (ok, I think it is Argentina as it is about 2 people from Argentina). But was happy to see the dialogues appearing on screen in English, it was hard for me to read and see the movie…but I managed it..

Dr. Ernesto Rafael Guevara de la SernaNow, about the movie.. it’s a good one.. about 2 guys, a doc and a bio chemist.. these 2 get bored of there life’s.. the same routine… going to the same class every day and listening to the same lectures.. they find very hard and think of going out on trip.. a trip of 12000 km.. a trip of whole south America… ya, quite interesting guys.. they pack everything.. they know that they do not have enough money to complete the journey.. may be even half of it.. but they start on good motorcycle..

They start from Argentina… go down south.., then Chile, Peru, Venezuela, Brazil and back home..

Guess what they might have seen and gone through, one of them even losses his girl friend who cannot wait for him… but the journey continues.. on there way they talk to communists, people with no money, people living in coal mines, then they reach a leprosy institute.. as they are docs.. they start helping people over there and spend quite some time there.. btw, they had to sell of there bike…

It’s a very good movie, no story in particular.. Interesting thing.. It’s a true story and the doc who keeps on writing letters to his mother every night goes on to become a rebel leader..

Couple of dialogues from that movie..

“lets marry a girl here, settle here, get the confidence of people, get them together and start a revolution”

The other guys says..

“ we cannot win revolution without guns..”

And here is something about one of the doctors.. on the motocycle…

“Dr. Ernesto Rafael Guevara de la Serna (June 14, 1928¹October 9, 1967), commonly known as Che Guevara or el Che, was an Argentine-born Marxist revolutionary and Cuban guerrilla leader. Guevara was a member of Fidel Castro's "26th of July Movement", which seized power in Cuba in 1959. After serving various important posts in the new government, Guevara left Cuba in 1966 with the hope of fomenting revolutions in other countries, first in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and later in Bolivia, where he was captured in a CIA-organized military operation. It is believed by some that the C.I.A. wished to keep Guevara alive for interrogation, but he died at the hands of the Bolivian Army near Vallegrande in Santa Cruz de la Sierra in early October, 1967. The details surrounding his death are cloudy, but many believe the Bolivian government purposefully executed him in order to avoid a public trial and potential martyrization of Che's image. After his death, Guevara became a hero of Third World socialist revolutionary movements, as a theorist and tactician of asymmetric warfare. He also became a popular icon for revolution and left-wing political ideals in Western culture.”

Trek at muthathi - lost in the forset - was just so fun

Added on: 26/02/2008 - I have received 2 comments for this post saying they have lost their loved once at Muthathi. So, I thought you should read the following 2 comments first and then go on to read the blog... if you are planning to goto Muthathi then make sure you have the safety gear and don't go into water PLEASE.

FROM PRIYA... boyfriend had been to muthathi with his friends last july..he was sucked in by a whirlpool....muthathi has always been a nightmare since then.saw ur blog so jus thought i ll share my feelings....

my one n only request to all r plz dont swim n lose ur lives coz there r people who mean the most to u waitin 4 u...plz have a safe trip.........


Guys,Going to Muthathi is all fine ! But take care, its also a dangerous place, and even though the water may look shallow there are spots, where it is more than 20 feet deep. I am writing this, because my buddy lost life there, and as of im writing this, his body is yet to recovered.These things can happen anywhere, but its a advice, from guy who also trek travels and seen Muthati, be careful at Muthathi, it can be treacherous, even though it may not look so. Never venture into water, without any safety gears

It all started on Saturday night when me, nithin and sandeep met in coffee day jaynagar to plan for a day out on Sunday. Sandeep suggested couple of places like sangam (but I have already gone there), muthathi (sounded good to me) – nithin and sandy already went there but it was like four years back so it was ok with them going again. Decided to meet at rag’s place at 7:00am and start by 7:30am, meanwhile called up ashok informed him about our plan... he said he would join, anyhow he did not show up next day… cold was the reason.

I got up at 6:20am and some how got ready by 7… took my bike and started to rag’s place thinking I was late and expecting a call from guys asking me to come soon. To my surprise I was the first to be in rags place. Nithin and Sandeep joined us at 8:00 am… left in a quails…. had our breakfast in banshankari and picked up pramod…

Everything started here… we stoped 5 km before muthathi and saw a hill with a rocky edge, asked the driver to wait for us at muthathi…driver warned us that this place has cheats and asked us to be careful. Anyways, we started climbing the hill.. everyone started wlaking in a line… there was not much place for 2 of us to walk beside each other.. one after the other started leading the group… ragi was slow and busy taking his snaps… nithin wanted everyone to be fast but ragi argued that we have come to enjoy this nature lets walk slowly and enjoy the nature… pumi did some monky tricks by climbing a tree but poor guy did not knew how to get down and was stuck on the tree for 10mins until nithin gave him directions and helped him getting down…. pumi decided not to climb any more trees… I was happy climbing a small rock around 6-7meters high and straight…. Then nithin and ragi followed… pumi and sandy did not try climbing that. Atlast we reached to the top where it was lush green and we could see what heights we have reached.. we saw the hill where we decided to reach and went there but it turned out to be the wrong one… that’s not the place we wanted to reach… but it was beautiful to see from that height… the surrounding area was green… atlast we found the exact hill which we wanted to reach… we went there and took few snaps… I cannot explain how beautiful it was to reach such a height…. It was one the best experiences I had in my life… nithin asked me to go to the tip of the hill… sit there and close my eyes and start swinging hands, it took almost 30 secs to close my eyes and swing my hands… it was a great experience. We spent there for 20mins and decided to reach the river which can be seen from the point where we were standing.. decided to go in a different way… and we were lost for 4 hours in the jungle.. on the way we saw the elephant dung.. nithin took a small stick and was testing if it was fresh.. just to know if the elephant just passed this way.. the scary part was when we saw the foot prints of some member of the cats family… and someone remembered that the driver had warned us of cheats… we never took a back step and started walking straight.. there was a moment when I said we will walk back.. but we did not.. to add to our fear we were hearing the sounds of elephants.. high bass sound.. nithin had some logic for high bass sound and decided it was an elephant.. so we never went that side.. mean while nithin had a cramp in his leg and sandy stepped on thrones.. after walking for 3 hours some one said its no more a joke because it was kind of getting dark.. he said it so seriously that pumi gave a smile and said yes its no more a joke.. so, we stoped and started deciding which way to go… that was last decision we could make for the day.. we knew that if this was wrong then we will have to stay in the jungle the whole night.. I could see the seriousness in everyone’s face… and from no where --- pumi spotted the river.. so we decided to walk towards it.. with in no time the river was out of our sight.. but still walked towards the direction we have decided to.. we walked and walked and walked and walked and atlast reached a end of a hill… and there in front of us.. around few km away was the river… now we could see it very clearly and we decided not to miss the sight of the hill anymore.. and there I saw the road beside the river.. I was the first one to see and was happy seeing the road and asked others if they have observed the road.. to my surprise no one did… but when I showed them, immediately ragi said “I was never so happy to see a road in my life”… the first sight of civilization after many hours… some how we got down that hill and walked towards the river… the driver was standing there waiting for us… he said he was worried and went back to the place where he left us… anyways that was one awesome trek I ever did…

We had some fruits and water at muthathi and spent some time in water… the water was not so good but still we swam for sometime… and started back to Bangalore… I was dam hungry, did not had any solid food after the breakfast… we stopped in kk pura.. had some food and were back to Bangalore…

Netaji "death" mystery - Update

Mukherjee commission is visiting to Russia between20th July to 30 July 2005 to investigate further onNetaj's stay there post 1945 and the submission of thereport is to be done by 14th Nov 2005 (DOB of Nehru).So that emans that Nehrus birthdays celebrations allover the nation may overshadow the reports outcome....A carefully chosen day by the Congress Government.

Another interesting development....Sonia Gandhi alongwith Natwar Singh is visting from 13th June on a fourday vist to Russia as a personal guest to Putin. So isthis again a conspiracy to hide the truth from theNetaji Commission ...

I can sense something fishy in this visit....Thecountry is focussed on Manmohan Singh's SiachinGlaciar viists and the Sonia-Natwar alliance isseceretly planning to sabotage the MukherjeeCommission's investigation work.....

Jai Hind....

Now thats called a reply

Sudeep (colleague).. told me about this small interview which he has seen recently..

The person who is being interviewed is in his 40’s and teaches children (aged 10-20) how to use guns. He teaches them how to handle various types of guns.

The interviewer asks him how he feels teaching small children about guns and violence. She asks, “Once they are equipped with guns they can create bloodshed… so how he feels about it”.

What is your opinion on the above quote?

The Keys to My Heart

The Keys to Your Heart

You are attracted to those who are unbridled, untrammeled, and free.

In love, you feel the most alive when things are straight-forward, and you're
told that you're loved.

You'd like to your lover to think you are optimistic and happy.

You would be forced to break up with someone who was emotional, moody, and
difficult to please.

Your ideal relationship is lasting. You want a relationship that looks to the
future... one you can grow with.

Your risk of cheating is zero. You care about society and morality. You would
never break a commitment.

You think of marriage something you've always wanted... though you haven't
really thought about it.

In this moment, you think of love as commitment. Love only works when both
people are totally devoted.

A mail which I received from Anuj Dhar a Delhi-based journalist.

Pardon my intrusion, but I guess you are interested in Netaji. Ipicked up your mail address from
I am Delhi-based journalist. For past four years I have beeninvestigating the mystery of Netaji's "death" and have made somebreakthroughs. Like it was me who obtained and forwarded to MukherjeeCommission in 2003 a confirmation from Taiwan Govt that there was noevidence to show that a plane carrying Netaji had crashed in Taipei(Taihoku) on 18 August 1945.
Some of my attempts failed -- like recent petition in Supreme Courttrying to stop Government from sabotaging the inquiry of Justice MonojKumar Mukherjee. This was as far one man with little means and nobacking of media could go.
Recently former Defence Minister George Fernandes released my book"Back from Dead: Inside the Subhas Bose Mystery."
I had great difficulty in getting this book published as no one waswilling to touch the manuscript. And now that the book out, media iskeeping away, more or less. In fact the very issue of MukherjeeCommission's inquiry is being ignored for a variety of reasons. As adesperate measure I approached the Court and now I am reaching out toyou.
This mail is as much about the issue as it is about my book. Yes, wantpeople to know about the book -- I have not committed any sin. Thisbook is the only detailed and definitive account of the littleunderstood mystery that has grown in past 60 years.
What you will read in the book -- which many readers have told me isgripping (Please see Times rating)--- are facts derived from officialpapers, classified and declassified. Whatever I found out I discussedwith several people including Netaji kin, intelligence people,historians, journalists etc.
In case the URL gets changed, please go to and search forAnuj Dhar in "Search Books".
What I write in the book is objective, factual and straightforward:Three "theories" stand out as far as Netaji Mystery is concerned. One,death in an air crash. Two, escape to the USSR and three, theBhagwanji/Gumnami Baba link. I reject the first, back up the secondand propose further inquiry into Bhagwanji angle. Mukherjee Commissionhas primary evidence linking this extraordinary holy man to Netaji. Noone with an open mind should have any objections to further inquiry.
You will have many questions ... like the DNA test conducted byGovernmental labs on the teeth presumed to be of Bhgwanji and why hedidn't come out if he was Netaji .... I have discussed them all in thebook. There are several reasons, apart from confirmation from theTaiwan Govt, to believe that there was no crash. Chapter 2 of the booksummarises intelligence agencies' investigation into the matter.
Please try to have a look at the book and if you find that it containssomething others should know, do tell them. E-mail your friends thislink
This is the only way to go about it as media is more concerned withLalu-Rabri tales. Help me so that I can continue my efforts to bringNetaji issue on top. 2005 is the last and best chance to resolve theNetaji mystery. Benegal's movie will ignite interest. MukherjeeCommission is likely to give a historic report and the Government maynot take it kindly. Pressure has to be built.
I hear that Government has reluctantly allowed Mukherjee Commission tovisit Russia and Vietnam. Now people should take steps to ensure thatGovernment gets pro-active and extends its fullest cooperation to theCommission. For God's sake this is about the man who played a mostcrucial role during freedom struggle. We must find out what happenedto him.
Thanks and Regards

I had the worst education

Even though I studied in one of the best schools, the best college and the one of the top 10 engineering college in Karnataka... I know nothing, no grip on any subject.. but I recently found out that its not only me, its with everyone.. everyone who have gone through the type of education which I have been through... and in India 98% of the schools work that way...

Last Sunday, we friends were discussing on different issues and one of my friend raised a problem from math…

Its something like this…

d/dx (x2)

which ends up with 2x=x, actually there is a reason why this happens and why we shouldn’t do this.. but none of knew it…

guys who were discussing are working in the top most companies.. intel, cisco, igate… none of them answered… all the 3 being above 80% guys… then we started discussing about what we have studied.. and what we really remember…

what ever we studied was for marks.. people like me worked for just first class marks.. some for passing and some for above 80%.. what ever it is every one of has worked for that percentage…

reason, either our parents, teachers or friends.. everyone were really concerned about your marks rather than how much you really know that subject.. because everyone had a wrong thought that the more marks you get the more you know about the subject… but that’s not true…

I am not sure about how the education is in other countries but in India its really all about marks…

This has to change; our teachers should teach us, how to think on solving a problem rather than teaching us steps to solve the problem.

But what happened to me, do someone have to really tell me, guide me.. what was I doing.. why was I running behind marks… oh my, what am I today… I really cannot say that, I know this subject.. i am not perefect...

But what ever I have learned till today is of some use… it is obviously not waste… but the way I was educated really sucks….

Btw, there are some good schools.. my sisters daughter goes to a school which is a four year course… for children btw age 3-7 where they teach how cut vegetables (the art of handling knife), stitch (the art handling needle) , she knows Ramayana and Mahabharata with all the names of the characters in it (tell me all the names of 3 wife’s of Dasharatha, that kid knows the names), how to balance yourself.. and what not.. that’s a excellent school… lots of fun…

Friday, April 08, 2005

Dont act smart when you are ill.. take rest and first visit a doc..

Past 2 weeks have been most unproductive weeks of my recent years. It all started with a throat infection, even though my throat was not well…went to coffeeday with friends and had some cold mango milkshake…then slowly that night body temperature started increasing...after that I was completely into it. For a day I thought it will reduce by itself and ignored, the next day treated myself got my own medicines.... it never decreased, still kept on working, had to shift my room, carried all my stuff three floors down….it started becoming worse and I at last thought of visiting a doc...even delayed in this saying, ok let me go tomorrow...but after a couple of days I was not able to even properly stand for 10 mins and went to a hospital on sunday….unfortunately..or may be fortunately only a MBBS was available...thought better to visit than none...went inside to see a beautiful doc aged around 25-27...I was bit shy when she asked me to open my mouth and started peeping into it...I took my time explaining her...wanted to spend more time with her...even though there were more patience she did not seem to be in a hurry...looked like both of us enjoyed each other company...spent nearly 25 mins with her...chatting and telling her how stupid i was not visit a doc before and asked her to give some strong medicine or a injection so that i can get well in a day...she laughed and said she cant give a injection as i had congestion and a injection would increase it...i had to leave after 25 mins...she wrote me good number of those 25mins she just pepped into my mouth and moved the seta scope all over my chest and back...that’s all...did not know from where i got all that energy to talk to her...started using the last today i am still left with a minor headache...tomorrow i will be in tirupathi and from there I will be traveling to hyderabad to see my mom and dad ...overall all productivity in past one and half week...two hours a day even though i slogged for hours together in front of my computer...

p.s. don't act too soon as you are ill don't use your software brain to medicate your self...there are people who are studying for years together to do to a doc a beautiful doc…feel good factor ;)….Listen to friends and take rest...

Lady (Hear Me Tonight)

Lady hear me tonight
Coz' my feeling is just so right
As we dance by the moonlight
Can't you see you're my daylight
Lady i just feel like

And i know that it is true
I can tell by the look in your eyes

The Lyrics which I really liked

I was fallin' into love
Yes, I was crashin' into love
Oh of all the words you sang to me
About life, the truth and being free, yeah
You sang to me, oh how you sang to me

Girl, I live off how you make me feel
So I question all this being real
'Cause I'm not afraid to love
For the first time I'm not afraid of love

And you showed me what life needs to be
Yeah, you sang to me, oh you sang to me

Now I'm crazy for your love
Can't believe I'm crazy for your love
The words you said you sang to me
And you showed me where I wanna be
Yeah you sang to me, oh you sang to me

All the while you were in front of me I never realized
I just can't believe I didn't see it in your eyes
I didn't see it, I can't believe it
Oh but I feel it
When you sing to me
How I long to hear you sing beneath the clear blue skies
And I promise you this time I'll see it in your eyes
I didn't see it, I can't believe it
Oh but I feel it
When you sing to me

Here is some good News, No GREAT news... In Celebration of Engineers Week, Domain Name Launches for Engineers Only

In acknowledgement of Engineers Week (Feb. 20-26) across the U.S., RegistryPro today announces the upcoming launch of the domain name. The engineering community can look forward to a February 21, 2005 release date for their exclusive registration. RegistryPro will also honor specific individuals in the engineering community on its website,, as well as feature an engineer-specific blog with a question of the day. "Engineers dedicate their work to making our lives better, always remaining behind the scenes," said Michael DelCiello, general manager of RegistryPro and electrical engineering graduate. "Now with their own signature, they get the far-reaching recognition they deserve on the Internet."

Until now, doctors, lawyers and accountants have been the only professionals eligible to register for the .Pro domains. RegistryPro happily extends its registration to the engineering community who hold important characteristics that embody the .Pro extension: strong ethics, association involvement and public interest.

In the U.S., the verification process relies on standards set by the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying and leverages each states licensing boards to determine eligibility. In other countries, engineers are approved by local and regional associations such as the Canadian Council of Professional Engineers, the Engineering Council UK, and the Bundesingenieurkammer in Germany.

In addition to offering engineers a differentiated Web identity, also provides professional credibility and secure communications. Each name comes bundled with technology, which allows for secure, encrypted communication to protect confidential client information in private online communications.

RegistryPro has been working closely with the National Society of Professional Engineers to deliver to the engineering community. "The Internet is undoubtedly one of the greatest engineering achievements of the 20th century," said NSPE Executive Director Al Gray, Ph.D., P.E. "Now, through the domain, professional engineers will be able to distinguish themselves online and carry out confidential communications with clients and colleagues in their day-to-day business."

Success - Few steps to success

1. Self -Belief: Success is begins in the mind. One has to be a believer, first, if one wishes to be an achiever. Never under-estimate yourself. You have no idea how often can you surprise yourself. So to begin with, let's get in the belief, "I Can."....-me- did it every time...when i really want to do something....

2. Clarity of Vision: There is no point running around without knowing where one wants to reach. you must get your job cut out. Greatest achievers in the world have been visionaries. Know exactly what you are best at and give it your best shot. ....-me- will concentrate more on this point from now on...

3.Setting the Right Goals: The goals should be realistic .The goals should be achievable ,and yet challenging enough - neither too easy nor too difficult -something in the middle. ....-me- yes, i am 100% following this point.

4: Be focused: If the sun's rays are focused on a piece of paper with a lens, the intensity of the concentrated energy burns the paper. Focus on your objective will enhance the intensity of the effects of your efforts... -me- I should be more focused..

5.No Short Cuts to Success: There are no short cuts to success. Divide your overall goals into smaller targets. Divide your monthly plans into weekly and weekly plans into daily plans and see how simple can things be... -me- thought there were shortcuts to success...but realized there are none. even if there are...i know i will not be happy achieving something without working hard. I know happiness is what I am working for...once short cuts to success.

6. Take Risks: Without any risk no progress is possible. Life comes to a stable standstill. People who take chances are the people who get ahead in life .The only way to reduce risk is to take risks... -me- I love to, but sometimes i really hesitate to.

7. Take the Initiative: People who take the initiative make the most of their lives. Proactive people do not wait for success to happen; rather they make it happen .As they say, 'JUST DO IT'... -me- i think i already did to get what i want and will do it as and when necessary.

8.Never Hesitate to Struggle: No one has ever climbed a mountain just by looking at it. Struggle, hard struggle, is a key to success... -me- I have the keys..

9.Own Responsibility: Failure to hit the bull's eye is never the fault of the target. People, who own complete responsibility of their lives, are the people who make the most of it... -me- need to learn and keep make this point sit in my brain.

10. Never Give Up: Many people who failed in life, where those who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up. Success demands extra-ordinary amount of perseverance. Never, never, give up... -me- easy to say...chalo..let me try and see...from now on will never give up on anything.

Past 2 weeks in my life

From past 2 weeks I have been very busy on week days and had fun on week ends. Had been very busy working in company for almost 10 hours a day and going back to room, was working for one of my customer and then working on my site, its been hectic but was happy with what I was doing. Over the week I have been reviewing some C and C++ books.

On week ends it was time for fun, we friends worked for few hours on Friday and Saturday on our dream project. Then on Saturday night me, nithin and ragav went out for a dinner. We started from Chandra colony, I was with ragav and nithin picked up another friend sandeep, stoped at anandrao circle – middle of the road  (some work was going on…just stood behind that but it was middle of the road). Then started discussing where togo, we nearly looked for every place each of us has already visited. But no luck, either the place we like was pretty far away or we did not want to go there. It was already 20mins we stood there trying to look up for a place, then nithin called one of his friend asking for some good place for having dinner but no luck the place he recommended was pretty far away. From the moment we stopped there, a sign bored on the right got my eye…sandeep’s too. Atlast we thought how about visiting that….so me and sandeep went inside to see if the restaurant was good, dam it was pretty cool…no artificial lights…candle lights with small trees around the table…cool place…It was “silver oak”…sandeep called nithin and ragav and asked them to come inside…me, nithin and sandeep stated with a beer and ragav with a pineapple juice….slowly apoorva (that’s the first time I met him) joined us (same guy whom nithin called before)…we then started with Smirnoff vodka….the drinks were too good…we all loved it…ragas paid the bill…I loved that dinner. Got into a auto and then went my cousins place…It was easy for my cousin to make out that I was drunk…switched on the system and watched a movie…next day woke up at 10:30....watched a movie in theater and came abck to room after having lunch…then watched another movie and again one more moive…yes…I watched 3 movies in one day…but the 3rd movie we watched was only the second cd…

Then from next day it was the same routine……room… ha, forgot to mention about the auto driver who gave me a cool philosophical lecture when I asked him to take me from shortest route…what ever he said was rite…his argument was.. what ever we do, is for happiness and almost 90% forget that… and run behind money or something which will really not make us happy….it might, but we are behind it so much that we forget to reach our destination - happiness.

No... Its a big deal.. Unfortunately.. There is no patriotism in our country. Nobody loves nation.. Actually they dont feel that this land, property, trains belong to us .It belong to the Govt and we are not part of it. So U ll find irt in train, toilets and roads. In small things there is patriotism starts. When you dont love such things... You dont bother who is ruling you.. only that Me, my family, my home thats all! Let Vajpayee, Sonia, Bush or Musharraf... makes no difference for them.
