There was a time when I had to drive long way to reach my work and I used to enjoy that believe me...some times at work things caused me frustrations however...going to work and coming back was never a pain...it was infact heaven for me :)

I love driving and.... listening to music is another passion of mine ...:)..however here in California...its only 10 mints drive to work and believe me...the craving to drive more..doesnt stop at all...and since the rush hour doesnt allow me to take a long ride...I make complete utilization of weekends :)
In one of these weekends I had gone to San Francisco @ fisherman's wharf. It was a long long drive ...guys and it was hot sunny and busy..too!!!!

It was a sure case where we know we are parting..for good...but to cherish our memories and promise to be in touch...we decided to meet at lunch...(and yes we are in touch via technology :)...)!!!
I always enjoyed my company with this friend of mine....as our interests, our general thoughts...our some of favs..from history too are so common...I sometimes wonder how it can be possible when we are from different places..different era's ;)....but the beauty of it is...we enjoy discussing everything...whether its work...buddha ( I got a new info from him which I never would have if he wouldnt have told me ..lol), its bikes...its sports...its songs...aah...and that reminds me of the gift... :) yes when I gifted him with a book on Indian Culture and heritage...he gave me this CD of 'Bif Naked' album...I had heard one of the songs..but dont remember where and it was stuck in my mind..unt…

When I boarded the plane...I was just thinking about the security checking and it just brought back all the flash-back as when I used to travel to US to Canada or vice-versa...it was just taking your bag and going across the border...no questions asked..no papers stamped. In those days I used to wonder when I used to hear the stories of India-Pakistan...and I used to dream ever this can happen in those borders....a hope...a dream ...but it was just a dream...as the one that didnt had any restrictions ...due to whatever happened in past...that freedom is lost.
