Holi ke din, dil khil jaate hain,
Rangon me rang mil jaate hain!


It's here! Holi... Indian festival of colors! Time to sing and dance, time to cheer, be merry and paint the town red, blue, green etc etc. I love the energy and spirit behind the festival. It is symbolic of the various shades of life and how we must look at our entire life as the festival of Holi - multi-coloured. Holi couldn't have come at a better time this year, right midst the Easter break, plenty of time to have fun!! Abha is hosting Holi party, she is one brave woman I'd say, don't you agree? I will certainly try to post some pictures this time..

Wish you all a very happy and colorful HOLI!!! Hope this Holi brings in colours of happiness and love into our lives.

Celebrating the Green!!
Monday, March 17, 2008

It is hard not to get into the spirit of St Patricks Day when almost everyone in the office is wearing something gorgeously green, a prize is up for grabs for the best dressed. We had a shared lunch too and no prizes for guessing what was on the menu, all ghaas poos.. literally had to force them down my throat…well.. there were some baked cakes and cookies with green icing, I didn’t dare touch them as me is on a healthy eating regime these days.

And for the ignorant, Saint Patrick's Day, colloquially St. Paddy's Day is an annual feast day which celebrates Saint Patrick, one of the patron saints of Ireland, and is generally celebrated on March 17. The Irish have observed this day as a religious holiday for thousands of years. St. Patrick's Day is bursting with folklore from the shamrock to the leprechaun and to pinching those that are not wearing green. Today, the tradition continues with people from all walks and heritages by wearing green, eating Irish food, and attending parades.

Chicago is also famous for a somewhat peculiar annual event, dyeing the Chicago River green. The tradition started in 1962, when city pollution-control workers used dyes to trace illegal sewage discharges and realized that the green dye might provide a unique way to celebrate the holiday. That year, they released 100 pounds of green vegetable dye into the river—enough to keep it green for a week! Today, in order to minimize environmental damage, only forty pounds of dye are used, making the river green for only several hours.

Philosophy at its best?
Friday, March 14, 2008

Aadmi aadmi ko kya degaa
jo bhi dega wohi khuda dega

Mera qaatil hi mera munsib hai
kya mere haq mein faislaa dega

Zindagi ko kareeb se dekho
iska chehra tumhe rulaa dega

Humse pucho dosti ka silaa
dushmanon ka bhi dil hilaa dega

Ishq ka zehar pee liya 'Faakir'
ab maseeha bhi kya dawa dega

I have been tagged by Abha to list 7 weird things about me…So, here are the seven.. yes, yes, they are many weird things about me, but for now let me stick with seven.


I am a neat freak…my wardrobe and draws are organised and tidy with neatly folded clothes. From time to time I re-fold all clothing in the wardrobe (even if they are already nicely folded) to keep them wrinkle free. Freaky??? Wait there’s more…my hangers must match and all have to be facing the same way.

I have these acute cravings for chocolate now and then and feel like I am going to faint if I don’t have it. I believe Chocolate is the instant fixer of bad moods, bad days, etc etc…..God bless the divine thing!!

I am very careful about my stuff and can’t stand it when people meddle with them. I am possessive about everything I possess. I hate it when people borrow stuff and never return them.

I think I am a person full of contradictions too… I am very emotional and mostly I think and act from my heart but again I am stone hearted at times…Forgive and Forget are the words I have trouble finding in my dictionary…. weird right???

I can totally switch off in the middle of conversations that are not worth lending an ear to and easily drift away into a different world, people keep wondering how can I be soo patient with all the hammering, well,…now the cat is out of the bag...yeah fine...I am not a nice person!

I am germophobic.. I wash my hands for god knows how many times a day….at work I have Hand sanitiser on my desk, once my hands are off the keyboard and mouse, I have to use it.

I can eat pretty fast, bcos I LOVE food u see but I cannot drink anything fast, be it coffee, tea, juice or even water, I drink very slowly in small sips, as if I am savouring every minute of it.

... well…..this is only a part of my weirdness.. and believe me people who are close to me have to put up with a lot more! :). I am not tagging anyone in particular but anyone who wish to join the weird lot, consider yourselves tagged..

Aah.. the goodness of quotes..
Tuesday, March 04, 2008
Today a good friend of mine has sent these, I enjoyed reading them soo much that I decided to post them on my blog..

*Let us not misunderstand what courage really is. The absence of fear is the courage of the mad. Doing what is right in the presence of fear is the courage of the noble. -Philippos

*Never tell your problems to anyone…20% don't care and the other 80% are glad you have them. -Lou Holtz

*You must experience and accept the extremes. Because if the contrast is lost, you lose appreciation; and when you lose appreciation, you lose the value of everything. -Philippos

*Being sad with the right people is better than being happy with the wrong ones. - Philippos

*If your problem has a solution then…why worry about it? If your problem doesn't have solution then why worry about it? -Chinese Proverb

*The ultimate measure of man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy. -Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

*Pain never really goes away; you just elevate and get used to it by growing stronger. -Philippos

*Sometimes the people who hurt us the most are people who were hurt more than us. -Philippos

*Our tears are what happens when it rains deep inside our hearts and we cannot hold the rain any longer. -Philippos

*Reputation is what men and women think of us; character is what God and angels know of us. -Thomas Paine

*Things don't go wrong and break your heart so you can become bitter and give up. They happen to break you down and build you up so you can be all that you were intended to be. -Charlie Jones

*Laugh when you can, apologize when you should, and let go of what you can't change. Kiss slowly, play hard, forgive quickly, take chances, give everything and have no regrets. Life's too short to be anything but happy. Remember to take the good with the bad, smile with the sad, love what you've got, don't forget what you had, learn from your mistakes, but never regret, people change, things go wrong, but remember life goes on!

Have a Nice Day!!
