London is a roost for every bird.

You Belong in London
A little old fashioned, and a little modern.
A little traditional, and a little bit punk rock.
A unique woman like you needs a city that offers everything.
No wonder you and London will get along so well.What City Do You Belong In?

“The go-between wears out a thousand sandals.”
You are Glass Sandals
Dramatic and unique
You're sure to be wearing something no one else is
And you're not telling anyone where you bought it!What Kind of Sandal Are You?

As I had said one of the facts below is watching movies..!!! Today I am going to talk about the movie "Mammo",Mammo is a nickname given to Mehmooda Begum .
I know this is not a new movie...but we as leaving in this part of the world...are not so previleged to get to see all the movies...I am a great fan of Shyam Benegal - a guy who has always made movies...out of some inspiration or some message for people...I dont think he ever made movie to make money...its a different thing people do have to make a living out of it :) "Don’t let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do.”I had heard about this "Mammo" & Shyam Benegal, himself was praising the main character of this movie - Farida Jalal... Since then am in search of it and guess what...yesterday I could get this movie...:D I was so excited...!!! "Dreams get you into the future and add excitement to the present"Didnt even know that the lyrics in this movie are by my fav Gulzar & Sing…

Have you ever thought...how it is to be a team or even be a team player? We often, talks so many things about this...infact so many seminars and learning sessions takes place..in the corporate world...just to know that...meeting of minds is what one lacks..:)

“Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success.” ~ Henry Ford

It is exactly how one bridges with relationships...similarly in projects..no matter how big team or how much authority one has...it all has to end up at one point...where meeting of minds exists..!!!

“The ultimate test of a relationship is to disagree but hold hands.”

A project can go so smooth if there are people to understand the point of view and the root cause of it...instead of proving who's work is going to be rewarded ....:)

I was just out to get some clothes which was given for alteration.....and man...the way it rained heavy ...I have never been in such rains...at least outside :)....!


“Life is like a rainbow. You need both the sun and the rain to make its colors appear.”

I felt like enjoying the moment and so I just took off in my car all over the place where I could go and not forget the way to home :)

And during this rain I had the ghazals from movie Bazaar ...playing ...gosh!!! I was wondering how..beautiful and meaningful the ghazals are....!

I have a very fade memory when I saw this movie...I remember it had tragic end and hence when I got a 2nd chance...I saw it again...and I always felt if...if everything would have taken at the right time...the end would have been different...!!!!

Yes...it always the "Time"...!!!

Your Life Path Number is 8Your purpose in life is to help others succeed
You are both a natural leader and a natural success. You are also a great judge of character.You have a head for business and finance. You know how to make money.A great visionary, you can see gold where other people see nothing.
In love, you are very generous - with gifts, time, and guidance.
You love to inspire people, but it can be frustrating when they don't understand your vision.Great success comes easily for you. But so does great failure, as you are very reckless.You are confident, and sometimes this confidence borders on arrogance.What Is Your Life Path Number?

“Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.” ~ Rabindranath Tagore

But the best part is that...he doesnt like cricket...I do! He has no interest in movies.. n I do. I don't think he either likes to listen to music....as he had switched that off in my car...n you all know my craze with music, poetry n poets :)....such a big contrast

"By contrast, wisdom captivates people's hearts and has the power to open a new age."

But still....our sense of humor is great & match to a great extent :)

Today is my mom's b'day...:) yeah first thing I did was to call her early morning of hers...and the previous night of mine...:) !!!

“YOUR Birthday IS A SPECIAL Time TO CELEBRATE THE Gift OF 'YOU' TO THE World”

I was remembering...how my mom's bday used to be celebrated...as time passed...I travelled so far that I often send her b'day cards and timely call to wish her.
My mom is a woman of principle...with great will power, determination, patience and foccused.
Her patience goes off when its me ...lol...as I remember she was so strict that I often remember getting scolding from my mom...for small things...which I feel so now :)

"God could not be everywhere and therefore he made mothers."

But only, one thing I find it amazing is that...though she was strict ...she really became a friend when it was time to be one for me :)....and I think that transition and transformation that too very timely is..a real tact and talent.
Oh btw my mom was genius in Maths...and …

Today, I really felt like thanking my those friends...who respect me and love me.
I had read a story in which this proverb was used...'You don't value sweetness until you taste the sourness'...so true..sometimes we just ignore many things in life ..just becoz we take things forgranted..so!!!
I have so many good friends across the world...when I have told them that I dont like smoking...they have really taken it to there heart and made sure that they quit..:)

“Without trust, words become the hollow sound of a wooden gong. With trust, words become life itself.”

Actually, why should they do? Its me who dont like...but that shouldnt be the convincing factor for those who smoke..or drink...as they might also have possible good reason to say why they do that...isnt it?

“Wise men put their trust in ideas and not in circumstances”

Somehow as a child, I have seen those ads everywhere dont smoke...its dangerous and with those skull and all those scarry pictures and stories...have always m…

Today I feel great that am going to discuss about my favs..i.e. about poetry, music and Gulzar :) !

Poetry: the best words in the best order

Yes, I was so surprised to see this CD called ‘Heer – by Abida & presentation by Gulzar’ – Thank You Friend for bringing this from the library as….usually its those historic & amazing movies which has made me eager to quench my thirst of curiosity and anxiousness about everything that did happen in history.

“It is a miracle that curiosity survives formal education.” ~ Albert Einstein


I never knew that I could get these cd’s as well that too ghazals, sufi kalam wow….am a great fan of Abida Parveen….her voice has that intenseness which takes one to the depth of it and leaves them there lost…that’s exactly how I feel…and I often listen to her & that’s the reason her melodious voice is there in my Radio Blog. Try it out and am sure you wont regret it :). She is considered as the queen of Sufi mystical singing, but she is best with sufiana kal…

“Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right.”

Yes...guys its new year and am a bit late..:) ...reason...I was away from town ;)
Yes...I went to LA and on the new year's eve I was in Disneyland.
It came as a surprise....when I left for LA...it was a long drive...but music made the journey...pleasant :)

“Without music, life would be an error.”

Disneyland is something where everyone can enjoy...adults or kids...everyone has that smile of enjoyment.
I had a full day enjoyment and was ready for the next day....till 2:00 pm I had to leave Disney coz it was raining...and most of the fun filled rides were stopped...but it was worth being there :)

“Drop the last year into the silent limbo of the past. Let it go, for it was imperfect, and thank God that it can go.”

I should be writing another post on my trip to LA & Disneyland...;) as I feel there is so much to add..:D
But as the year was ending...on the eve...God gave everything along with my fav. rain :)....I enjoyed by wat…
