A time well spent.. :)

P.S: This is one post right out of my diary..Feels as if just last week i landed here in blore...athukulla..5 years odiye poachu. Vanthapo i was the lone IT person in my batch..now after 5 years i am all left of my batch!! But when i look in the mirror, the fella who landed on the chilly december morning is missing..a totally new person who in no way resemble the one he was half a decade back. Well here is something which i had written 5 years back. Each word of it rings true even today. This is not a self discriminatory post..but more a thanksgiving one :)

Staying away from home teaches a LOT of things and thats an experience in itself. Its something which can make or break a person. Luckily for me i had the good fortune of meeting an amazingly wonderful set of human beings. Everyone i had met in these short tenure had been so very good..at time it was damn depressing. How can people be so GOOD and so SELFLESS!! I also had the gud fortune to meet some amazing personalities who became …

Where have all these brands gone!!!

The list below includes some famous products and some not so famous ones..but like sparrows they are suddenly extinct, without anyone noticing..

Tinopal & Robin blue:

Not sure of the latter..but my mom used to make my sparkling white school uniform into aquamarine blue. The latter one was more potent. Few extra drops and you will get a permanent blue stained dress..i used to like the cute dabba in which it came

Leo toys:

This is really something to think about..a while back, these folks were market leaders with virtual monopoly over toyland. I still remember pestering my dad, asking for a toy machine gun, which incidentally was way too much priced at that time to afford. And suddenly this company is nowhere.

Forhans:

Not that i am a great fan of this paste. But this is onething which i dont see on the racks anymore

Happy Feb 14 :)

It was luv @ 1st sight. Every alternate week i used to crave for THE day..the most eagerly awaited day of the week, when i would see her in her usual place on the stands. I would wait near the stand, awaiting her arrival..greedy to be the first person to enjoy the visual feast. Every time, its a new experience. The fresh smell emnating from her..is something beyond words. Throughout my childhood she has been my companion for majority of the time. Though i hardly get as much time now, i still try to push in some time once a week or so to catch a glimpse. And tommorow the entire world celebrates...the happiness..we enjoy when we meet..by dedicating a special day.

Happy Book Lovers day folks ;)

Now that I have seen almost 20 years of my life and most of it without anyone who I could in the true sense call as a friend…..I have been thinking now for a while as to how my spouse oughta be…………

# # # # I am not looking for only a beautiful, slim and an intelligent girl…….They are all cliché The ones that matter are:

The first prerequisite I expect of my wife --- no it isn't the ability to understand me, that's the second---- the first one's a sense of humour for me and all my nonsense

She must sleep in my lap and allow me into hers. She must run her hand into my hair and fight me with pillows as often as she can.

She must allow me to disturb her, Which I will, ---no matter how busy and serious she is and I am--- , while she goes about our household chores.

She must sit with me shoulder in shoulder when we watch …
