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 in Canada I have never found anyone showing any 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 ;) 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

Excellent quote, here what Sahir said:

jis subah kii Khaatir jug jug se ham sab mar mar ke jiite hai.n
jis subah ke amrit kii dhun me.n ham zahar ke pyaale piite hai.n
vo subah na aaye aaj magar, vo subah kabhii to aayegii

and yes the morning is here but still a bit dark morning. As to compare discrimination between now and some 22 yrs ago, when I first landed in Canada, it really feels like woh subah aa chuki hai lekin din shabaab par abhi bhi naheen hai(that morning is here but still long wait till the day reaches to its beauty)

Hi Dawn -- love that kitty -- why not take advantage of 2 beds at once? GREAT PHOTO!!

The only people I ever knew in Toronto were the Rohmers, who lived on Sandringham Drive back around 1966 when I was 15. I just checked online and I see that Richard Rohmer has ended up to be very well-known in Canada! (Years ago I knew he had written a couple of books, but I had no idea of his prominence.) As a teenager I had a huge crush on his daughter Cathy, even though I was only with her for a few days while my Dad and Richard attended a conference. She was a pen-pal of my sister's.

Thanks so much Dave...for appreciating the photo. Its one of few moments which can be captured...but cannot be carved :) as its never planned when it comes to these animals :)
Good to hear your recollected story..I always loved to hear such share!
btw, at Lars a pic is waiting for u :) I think u will love that:)
Thanks, so did u ever express ur crush or it remained with u all the time :)?

Dave said...

Lars's photos are GREAT!
I can remember writing Cathy a letter (with hand-painted lettering on the envelope), but nothing ever came of it, obviously!

Dawn....सेहर said...

Sometimes ...I think its what we see and what others see :)
am sure u might not have any regrets at this time :)
be happy always..!
