A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step

"If you obey all the rules, you miss all the fun"

"There is no duty we so much underrate as the duty of being happy."

Yes...that's how I feel as the day is approaching...:) I am enjoying this stress of packing and when I see that my luggage is increasing :O...but thank god...I can check them in ;) !!

Project Management isn't that simple as it denotes....but then..sometimes I just look at people and admire as an outsider...and then..try to find what is the problem hahaha!!! It's fun even in stressful situations....I often enjoy...such moments ;)

We can't help everyone, but everyone can help someone

Today I went in a school for the Spring Carnival ...and I met this girl...who is all alone here...we chatted and she felt so good that she invited me to her home..! I was a bit hesitant but looking at her happiness ...I agreed..and we chatted whole evening until I saw it was 10 oh gosh!! I could see that she has no friends and hence she didn't want me to go...but then I have to go..it was a tough situation for her...but I gave assurance to her..that no matter what she can always be in touch with me for any help. :)!!

She was feeling a bit sad that we met and soon I will be off for my vacation...but I gave her that hope...of tomorrow :)

A long journey is well started, once you are on the other side of the door

Tired...dead tired!!!!! am sleepy....!!! But still up packing ..organizing...and donating ;)

Don't limit your challenges; challenge your limits

Morning when I went to get my visa ...I thought I have so many things to write about the Indian Consulate etc...but then it took the whole day and guess what...I eneded up reading a book suggested by one of the buddy bombayite :) 'Maximum City' .....yes its a nice book..lot of things I found similar...except one thing...here in Canada I have never found anyone showing any discrimination...as he mentioned in one of his chapter...I guess by the time I came here ...diversity is at its peak in Toronto...and probably that is the reason lot many people migrate here ;)...so it just started..!!!

And hence I will conclude today as my packing is still...going on :D

We rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance, perseverance, character; character, hope. And hope does not disappoint usPosted by Hello

One ought to be just before one is generous

I read this quote and I was wondering how true it is :

"Love is the ability and willingness to allow those that you care for to be what they choose for themselves without any insistence that they satisfy you"

And believe me it's a great feeling when you see around people who really care for you and suggest you the best! Often we drag ourselves into so many things that we forget or get distracted from the main focus and ultimate fact and its happiness in one's life....and when someone else tells you ...its like a great sense of relief ...as wow! this is what I wanted to hear...and so truly they help you in understanding as what you really need :)

I might be saying what is just randomly coming in my thoughts...but believe me when I get the feeling that someone even starts caring as to begin with just 'C' of the word care...it means a lot to me...as my Dad used to tell me...always value people :) and hence I always love his teachings...:)

The pain of parting is nothing to the joy of meeting again

“To do is to be.” – Socrates
“To be is to do.” – Plato
“Do be do be do.” - Sinatra

ha ha ha :)

Today I am feeling some what homesick...:( naturally, when you meet your close friends after a long time and then part with them..its always painful. I was trying to concentrate on my work ...since I have stuff that needs to be completed.. before I go on my vacation...:) but still...an emptyness is still there...may be this is what is called missing....your friends....more or less the warmth...homeliness....togetherness....and lots of happiness :D

"My memories are inside me - they're not things or a place - I can take them anywhere."

Am back!!!!!!!!!

My trip was amazing....loved the drive both ways...it took me 21/2 hours to reach to Buffalo and I really had a good time with my friends....cherishing some old memories ..right from my school days till...date....! I had taken old albums...and we all were just talking and talking....it was really worth this long weekend!

"Own only what you can carry with you; know language, know countries, know people. Let your memory be your travel bag"

I was so surprised to see Tim Horton's in Buffalo...as I remember ...we used to buy Tim Horton's coffee (famous coffee and donuts...through out Canada you will see...), at the border in Niagara- Canada and then used to drive into US...as we never used to get any of those canadian brand brand ;)
But to my surprise while I was driving down the roads...saw this big board and I got so restless to try it out as ...my suspicion started...is it for real or something in the name of Tim Horton's someone is fooling.. lol ...but it was the same Canadian brand....to those who don't know....its a franchaise chain for coffee and donuts just like other coffee shops...but it has its own standards ...just like how McDonald's fries..something similar the coffee is just Tim's n nothing else like it :D,...difficult to get one ...its standard and the taste of coffee any canadian would describe :D
I remember how things were tough when I didn't even get a simple regular coffee in S.Korea ;) ! Those were the days ...:D

One thing was that on the Tim Horton's cup ..it was only English and no french ...:)

I did enjoy my whole trip and was kind a sad to leave my friends back and so I was driving back with my happy songs...to cheer up myself ;) and guess what...those who know...I-190 Hwy...which is a interstate Hwy and the traffic is very slow here ...as its near the border...and this guy behind me who was quite senior ...total white shiny hair..with sun glasses on ...dashed me when the traffic is not moving at all :O gosh!!! I thought what happened all of a sudden??? and the moment I turned back ...he said ..sorry!!! my situation was so tensed as I couldnt stop the car since it was on Hwy and on top what if my car is damaged...no matter what,... in that situation one good thing I did was I wrote down his license plate # and drove back with no worries...hoping for the best ;) ...reached home and first thing I checked was ...:) my car...its cool ...nothing happened...I was so relieved ...and it started raining heavly ..........so heavy that I just came out of my car and got in to my house and I was already soaked in water...:D
It was a welcome shower ;) to Toronto!!!!!

It is not raining to me, It's raining daffodils; In every dimpled drop I see Wild flowers on distant hills.

The flame never dies because the commmitment never ends...

Friends....its not that I don't talk to myself...or my blog ;)..but am away for this long weekend...from the stressful week that I have been mentioning...all this time in ...and making you all feel it as well ..lol...!

I am exploring my hobbies with the same passion and enthusiasm....my long drive to US ;) with my music....and with my friends!!!!
So near..and dear ones...(that's how you all are to me ..;) )....am just around here chilling out enjoying the summer...unofficial summer in Canada....after a long time ....will be back with the celebrations of victoria day and after the fire works...;)

"Be patient wild eyes.Soon will come a storm to tame you.Let her winds surround you. Match her fury and let fires reign.There is no escape.Nature means what she does."

I will be back by Monday.....yes its long weekend due to 'victoria day'.....The Sovereign's birthday has been celebrated in Canada since the reign of Queen Victoria (1837-1901).
May 24, Queen Victoria's birthday, was declared a holiday by the Legislature of the Province of Canada in 1845.

A discovery is said to be an accident meeting a prepared mind.

Milind Date on Korean Arirang TV Channel...Date blends and Incorporates Indian Music and techniques with styles from other countries and genres, including Korean music...:) Posted by Hello

You don't get harmony when everybody sings the same note

WOW!! Guys....today am so happy and excited and proud too ;)!!!!

I am so glad that my scope is well defined and am on my way to achieve them...with all this accomplishment..I heard from my friend...who is knowns as Indian Musician in 'Bansuri'..Milind Date!! I saw his interview on Korean TV Chat "Heart to Heart"...wow! Milind I must say...am so proud of you...I can't believe ..as if it was yesterday when we all were going from Zoology practicals to Botony and Chemistry...with all our funny jokes and gestures...that the time will be deciding something like this as well..!!!

I would like to share what Milind said to the audience...that Eastern music is going to make a big impact as its evolving all the time...his diversity with the aspect of different music, different instruments and different notes & ragaas are definately going to bring harmony and peace to the world...what a best thing....that he cannot speak Korean language but can understand the hearts of the korean people and their music..:)!

One thing common I found in him and other Indian Classical musicians and singers, was that 'Western music is good but they are stuck with 12 beats...where as East has 24. The best I liked is when he said 'Through this fusion music his mission is to bring the world together..bring Harmony' Wow! Milind...am so proud you doing this mission through your own hobby something which is so near and dear to your heart...am sure you will succeed!!!

When Milind was asked about 'Bansuri' all he said was its a simple instrument with 6 holes where in one of the holes you blow gently and music flows ...a very natural nature's instrument...may be Bumbo Bees used to hmm and hence the creation of music...wow...!!! I will summarize your quote as :"It's easy to play any musical instrument: all you have to do is touch the right key at the right time and the instrument will play itself."

But hey that doesn't mean people like me but...someone like Milind who is practising past 15-20 years wow!!!!! Bravo!!!

Let loose of what you can't control. Serenity will be yours

Don't fill your time with worry - fix what you can and let the rest take care of itself

Aah!! that's what I was told today...and it gave me so much peace and relaxation!

Sometimes we take too much upon us thinking it belongs to us :)....but many times unknowingly we take it for granted that we are responsible for everything...its all because.... am a sports person ;)....the Team player...:) But I love it ...coz... if not me my team member will take care of things ;)...for a change again I had a laughing day....these couple of days...I was so busy learning & at the same time running the show....!! Today ...am so happy...that words can't do justice :)

Continuity of thought upon one single thing and the suppression of every source of distraction multiply in an extraordinary way -the value of time :)
My lunch was excellent after a long time ;) .. so what I say is...

Treasure this Moment. Be Here Now!

I've got dreams in hidden places and extra smiles for when I'm blue

Today I read something...

"The world is full of cactus, but we don't have to sit on it"

When I read it...the literal meaning striked to my mind and I visualized .....how could one do that ...lol ...and then the actual meaning I tried to analyze...so true it is!! Often we get dragged into materialistic point of views and then gather all negativity!!!

We should always look at the brighter side...yes...in this cactus plant all I could see was those beautiful red flowers...and it reminded me how for some the glass is half filled and for some its half empty!!! Somehow those flowers didn't even make me think of the thorns...so its all about the attitude ;) like Winston Churchill said once..

Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference.

So I am all set with that creative thinking hat on my head...ready to face another milesstone ;) as happiness is an attitude. We either make ourselves miserable, or happy and strong. The amount of work is the same...:) !! I am focussed on my vacation and am sure my this attitude will take me across the ocean safe and sound ;)

I am not angry, damnit, I am passionate!!!

Today I am dead tired....work ...work and more work....when you try to accomplish a lot in less time and then you have problems with technology...grrrr how do you feel :) ? Its awful...full of frustration....for a while and then I felt...no worry...:) I should relax this moment at the least...!!!

That's when I remembered a saying "Rainbows apologize for angry skies." Such a huge meaning is hidden in those lines...I felt ....and started thinking...from history how anger has affected the world..the people...even mother nature has it...but then there is always a compensation to it like the rainbow...a better side to look at ..:)

It had been a long day....one of the pics I posted in April blogs..."it was a long week-sleepy kitty" ...Its only Monday and I already feel like that ..!!!! It's time to go to bed...say prayers and sweet dreams :) with this saying...

Anger blows out the lamp of the mind

My eyes see the present and my mind paints the future

Ever it happened that you need to do a lot...but it doesn't get done...!!! reason could be anything...was feeling lazy...or low...or just didn't had any reason lol !!!

I have so many things in mind to accomplish and still am there...planning!!! It says in any task..personal or official...the more time we spend on planning...the more perfection it tries to achieve :)...now who the hell want to achieve perfection.....I guess by the time I am about to implement things should be in place....I must not forget things...!!! So many things happening around that don't know how to just focus on my vacation :D...sounds strange isn't it? But yes....the precautious nature of mine...is thinking about the after effects of my vacation...I have to come back...:) My dad used to say .....think about the later part as well...as its not all that fun....:) and I often found it correct..!!!

Remember how we often go out for picnic and enjoy and at the end we had to clean all the mess that we created :)...then it was a painful task...!!!! But once it becomes a habbit then it seems to be so cool!

"What makes the desert beautiful is that somewhere it hides a well."

Today...I felt exactly as what once I read ..very philosophical.....give away everything...as nothing belongs to you...you came in this world with empty hand and you will go from this world empty hand ..whatever you made you made here...so what is it that is yours :)....

Yes I read this when I was in school...and today I felt that I am giving away things....as if am gonna be born again :)...!!!!

It is not that there are no accidents, evil, deformity, pettiness, hatred. It's that there is a broader view. Evil exists in the part. Perfection exists in the whole. Sin is seeing nearsightedly. And I can choose this broader view - not that I always will ...;) but I always can :D

The time to relax is when you don't have time for it

"Your mind will answer most questions if you learn to relax and wait for the answer. "

So truly said ....today I feel so much relaxed...even though am told to work 18 hours per day ..nights and weekends ..lol !!!! As they say nothing is free ;) hahaha my spl friend is my boss as well :D so have to do it...either for boss or either for spl friend ....hard way isn't it ...but there is a bribe for me in that...if I work as mentioned then I get extra week and guess what...I don't even have to choose ....my spl friend says ...go to California...:D I laughed like a crazy there...seems like a plan...;) am all set for it....lol!!!!

I am much looking ahead for this weekend and even though its raining here ...with cold wind....am gonna be shopping ;) isn't that fun!!!!
Today I actually had so much fun at work too....my spl friend really made me laugh like anything...and I believe laughing is the best medicine ;) and guess what there is no tax on it :D

Today...I saw one senior citizen..she got into the room and was staring at all the things that was in the reception area...first she saw those fresh flowers on the desk...she just loved it..went straight to it and started taking the fresh scent of the flowers and said..'hmm lilly...its so nice..is this real :).!! she did talk a little about the flowers and then she started staring at a painting...it was lush green....with some purle flowers near by a lake...so one can see the reflection of those lush green leaves in the water and hence the entire painting was so soothing...she kept on praising the picture...and she said its so peaceful!!!!! I was wondering...I had seen so many times that painting on the wall but I was never attentive..as my intention was always to finish my task and rush to other...it gave me a break to really look at the painting and I did thought for a while...we hardly get to see the real lush green...and we crave so much for it that our thirst is quenched by looking at the picture itself....imagine why people go on vacation to tropical places...to get out of the stress and hussel bussel of life.....!

"Why do plants have such a positive impact on us? "
There are a number of reasons, including: They have a predictable cycle of life that provides comfort in our time of rapid change. They are responsive but nonthreatening. They form no opinions or judgments about their caregivers. They soften our man-made environment. They enable us to change or improve our environment. They promote relaxation and tranquility.

That's how I feel ;) btw, the white thing in the picture is ...any guess?? ...chicken :)

There is more to life than increasing its speed;)

"If you obey all the rules, you miss all the fun"

aah!!! my training ended...!!! Do you remember how after the training they discuss about the accomplishments from the sessions and then they ask you...so are you ready to implement this...on your job!!! boy!!! I infact got more pressured..with my exam....but then I thought..I will only worry after my vacation ;)...why spoile it with my own hands..!!!
So read some of Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam...

How long, how long, in infinite Pursuit
Of This and That endeavour and dispute?
Better be merry with the fruitful Grape
Than sadden after none, or bitter, Fruit

You know, my Friends, how long since in my House
For a new Marriage I did make Carouse:
Divorced old barren Reason from my Bed,
And took the Daughter of the Vine to Spouse

For "IS" and "IS-NOT" though with Rule and Line,
And, "UP-AND-DOWN" without, I could define,
I yet in all I only cared to know,
Was never deep in anything but - Wine

And lately, by the Tavern Door agape,
Came stealing through the Dusk an Angel Shape,
Bearing a vessel on his Shoulder; and
He bid me taste of it; and 'twas - the Grape!

Have so much to plan....thought this would take some pressure out ;)

Illusion is the first of all pleasures!!!

Most words evolved as a description of the separated realities of the external world, hence their inadequacy to describe the one gentle reality within us all.

Wanting to do something is a desire, not a sentence. When I "decide" what I want, I translate my desire into a sentence and then follow the sentence... I take the desire out of my heart and put it into my ego. Asking myself, "What should I do?", brings to mind my habitual answers to that question, it brings in what the voices from my past would want me to do, and it ignores the fact that there are probably no adequate words to describe where my heart is leading me this instant :) I feel like the cat above...being mischievous lol!!!! Seems like training is working on too much ;)

To live happy, live hidden!!!!!!

Today...there was a lot that was covered...in the training...! I was feeling much comfortable as we were achieving our targets of completing one by one processes of project management tasks...I feel so much at ease!!!

But dunno, why...I had a slight headache...was it the smog :( ....!!!

And then I read something about...:) You!!!!

When you come close to selling out, Reconsider....
You - one worth so much to me, to us, to life as such...like a bowl of cheries :D

Isn't that amazing!!!!

And then I had a glance over this picture..;) kl....dear I thought of u hahahah..."please don't take it that way ...its not U" -this is what came to my mind lol
But I found that was smart..enough;) to have a nap that way!!!!!!!

Give the heavens above more than just a passing glance.....for heaven: a place somehow high above the clouds, yet deep inside your soul; a place of complete peace, of total and utter happiness; a place that is greater than the sum of everything you will ever be or could ever imagine to be; a place we all want to get to, but just not yet ;)

But dunno why I feel that heavenly happiness today...at this moment ...I am there :D

"A mother understands what a child does not say."

Today is Mother's Day, and I felt from my heart that this day's blog... I should dedicate to mothers :). Initially, this was only a North American concept or culture to celebrate...at least thats what I thought...and I used to find strange and infact used to make fun as only one day for that mother who takes care of u ..whole life...even if you are married or..old...that mother is always praying for her child's happiness...! One day is too less!!

One life is not enough to pay gratitude for what a mother has done..., how come one day would do...I remember the stories that as a child I used to hear... how the guy asked for his mother's heart for his girl friend and mother happily gave it and when he was rushing he..fall down and from the heart of his mother a voice came asking..."R u ok my son" ...that is what a mother is!!!
I felt that many times our mothers are taken for granted and hence this day I make sure I at least take time to say "Thank You" for everything that she has done for me....if I am at certain level of my life or career its all because of her teachings...its the culture that a mother gives ...its what you inherit and share it with the world.....!!!!

Yesterday, I got a very nice gift...a full book of poetry written by Sarojini Naidu. As a child I had read so much about her ..infact she was known as Nightingale of India...and hence I am going to share one of the poetry of hers...here...
To My Children

GOLDEN sun of victory, born
In my life's unclouded morn,
In my lambent sky of love,
May your growing glory prove
Sacred to your consecration,
To my heart and to my nation.
Sun of victory, may you be
Sun of song and liberty
Limpid jewel of delight
Severed from the tender night
Of your sheltering mother-mine,
Leap and sparkle, dance and shine,
Blithely and securely set
In love's magic coronet.
Living jewel, may you be
Laughter-bound and sorrow-free

I thank the friend who gave this beautiful gift :)
Happy Mother's Day!!!!!

No, you never get any fun out of the things you haven't done

...what a busy week it was...like everyone I was waiting for this friday to come :) Thank God It's Friday ;) and today the weather was so beautiful...all day sunny and it was 17 degree can't believe it ...but yes...the moment I got outa work...I rushed to eat ice-cream ....seemed like...life is back on earth ;)

Friday really makes me so happy...it was never like this before...but now things are different ;)

I really wonder how many of us really value these moments...its goes for the saying...Until you taste the sour...you don't know what is sweet :) Yes, and it goes all true for me !!!!

I had fun in the sun...though it was hectic completing all the deliverables...and the best was the movitation of the sun...kept me going...and the mission got accomplished :)

I missed a team Dim Sum lunch :( (and worst was when a member was describing about each dish they had ...aah!!! isn't that cruelty on earth ..lol ) due to my meetings...aah but that was ok...I met this chef in our cafeteria....who was making this veg-chkn stir fry for me...tried guessing ..which part of the world I belong ..lol...I like when someone keeps guessing...and they go far than the country I belong hahaha....its fun..to know the perception of ppl ..as what they think about u ;)
well here I had to say...as he went to South America ...I didn't had time as I was already late for my lunch...and one can imagine what the smell of the food was doing to me ;)

Then the guy jumps on religion hahaha it was hillarious to hear his story.. how his wife is religious & he a total opposite ...says its been 15 yrs of marriage...she is still asking me ...when are you going to come to the God's house hahaha ohh boy he made me laugh with his funny way of story telling tact...actually that was a nice technique ....so that my mind is not on food and it puts less pressure on him...while cooking...I really had a good laugh...enjoyed my lunch fully...yummy...mummy...!!!!!!
Everyone at work had left already :(....and I was still there....but a lot was accomplished..since next week am gonna be in training ;)...had a reason for everything.....!

wow no work pressure...but hey...weekend looks pretty with 20 degrees....am gonna be out all day...:) having fun...in the sun!!!

Sunny days are here again...Thumbs Up ;)
