First time

Yesterday Rajesh Khanna, the actor, passed away. So all the TV channels were playing songs from his movies most of the time. And beautiful songs they were.

So after I reached home yesterday evening and was sitting with my Father-in-law watching the TV, I for the first time heard him humming music. I was very surprised but I also had a big smile on my face seeing this side of him. I've never ever heard him hum before. And its been more than 12 years since my marriage. I never knew he enjoyed music so much to actually sing/hum.

And it was just not me. When I was sitting with Betu while he was having his dinner, Betu also said "Aaj maine pehli baar Dadu ko gana gaate huye suna!" (First time today I heard Grandpa sing a song).

I smiled, nodded and said "Me too!".

Sacrifice & Adjustment

I've often seen and felt that how these two words are used interchangeably based on the position of the person with respect to the other person in a situation where two or more people are involved.


If one person is senior/older then its called 'sacrifice' while with the younger generation its termed as 'adjustment'. While 'sacrifice' has value attributed to it, 'adjustment' is expected as a duty.


Why is anything foregone by the younger generation not treated as sacrifice and valued or appreciated? What is your opinion on this? I would like to hear views on this from as many people as possible.


P.S. To clarify, this may not apply to each and every person but this is a general view that I've experienced.

What do you do when...

...someone asks you how to type in the two backslashes that are there in "http://www...." URL as there is a key for single backslash but none for double?

P.S. This is a real incident and I was the person to whom this questions was directed at yesterday.

Horrifying, atrocious, monstrous


Any number of similar adjectives will be less for what happened to the girl of class XI.

The faces of these men should be posted all over so that they can be caught and punishment which reminds them of this heinous act every single day making their life hell.

What do you do when...

...you spot a childrens' play school named "Pukie Pie"?

My first reaction was "EWWWWWWWWWWWWW"

Who the hell would name a playschool like this? Someone has to be totally dumb and probably no knowledge of the meaning of the word puke.

And secondly who the hell would send their child to a playschool named thus?

I was driving so I couldn't click a picture but next time I pass by that route I will definitely click :P

And thank you to those people as well who called names and used abusive language and felt that the girl who was harassed created this drama for no reason whatsoever. It helped us get a reality check of  the state of mind and the attitude of people around us.

The first rain of the season...

....Ahh....such a bliss!!

Keep going! :-)

Imagine...

Imagine a guy riding a nice bike.
Imagine the guy wearing a nice stylish t-shirt.
Imagine the guy wearing a stylish torn kind of jeans.

And lastly imagine the same guy wearing a fluorescent yellow strapped fluorescent green floaters.

Haha...what a fizzle out...right?

Well this is not from my imagination but a sight I saw just few minutes ago :-D
