“Good friends are like stars.... You don't always see them, but you know they are always there”

Today is my dad's birthday and I am missing him so much!
On this day I want to wish him 'A Very Happy Birthday Dad', may life long I receive your love and blessings which always gives me strength as a child to grow and face this world.

I hear its Ganesh Chaturthi for many Maharashtrians and I wish the best and peaceful - Ganpati Bappa Moriya :)

“Plant the seeds of Love in your hearts. Let them grow into trees of Service and shower the sweet fruit of Joy. Share the Joy with all. That is the proper way to celebrate the Birthday.”

Yesterday evening, I was in the mood to eat ‘Bhel’ a spicy dish which is usually a snack for evening time made of rice crisps and tomatoes n onions for garnishing with tamarind paste splashes…some what there ;)!

“Craving, not having, is the mother of a reckless giving of oneself.” ~ Erick Hoffer

I suggested my friend to go to ‘Bhavika’- a chat place where you can have all those quick Indian fast food snacks such as Pani-Puri, Dhai Papadi, Ragda Pattice etc..!
We went to this place and we saw a parking so my friend gave a signal and there was another guy who was coming from opposite and as soon he sees us it rushes to park in the spot for which we already gave our indicator signal. Besides that there was another car which was trying to come out of the parking and this guy didn’t even bothered to look at that, probably he was in hurry to park thinking that we will take the parking spot – though the right of way was ours if you go according to the books :D

Have you ever come across a time when you had to test your mind over your heart?

“Nothing is at last sacred but the integrity of your own mind” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

It does happen with all of us…in different situations and different times.
A time when no matter how strong you are situations make you weak which could be more or less emotionally or sometimes we take things for granted :D

“Love is of all passions the strongest, for it attacks simultaneously the head, the heart and the senses.” ~ Lao Tzu

Yes, I had lately such hiccups!
I am a strong person mentally and with a strong will power too…but lately I was not doing so well health wise may be it’s the Californian weather which is hitting me now and you know as for me am made for the cold weather with 6 cms snow and -65 wind-chill factor.. :D!

Why love if losing hurts so much? We love to know that we are not alone.

Now a days weather is so unpredictable that…by the time its noon you don’t feel like getting out on a weekend….and last night I had gone to the video store hoping I will get the movie ‘Fanaa’ but unfortunately it was taken away…and I was searching what to see …and with all my search I took this movie which I think last week I had ignored :D

“The greatest ignorance is to reject something you know nothing about”

Anyway, it has always happened with me…initially I ignore and then my mind says no ..I should try :D…so I did!
This movie ‘Umar’ (Age), the name and the star cast attracted me…!

Age does not protect you from love, but love to some extent protects you from age.

This movie when I started watching, I think its another story where today’s kids don’t care for there old aged parents..and the difference was that this was shoot in UK. So one can see how people don’t even come to see there parents in the old age home and how Asians they do make use of there parents by bringing them to a diff…

It’s been a while since I updated my blog from last time. I was kind of busy and then was not feeling well! But then business is as usual: D
I was quite busy troubleshooting and attending meetings and finally when I came to my desk, this colleague of mine who always like to talk came by to my desk.

“The busy man is troubled with but one devil; the idle man by a thousand” ~ Spanish proverb

He is a good talker but sometimes people do change there route when they see him coming towards them…somehow I am not able to do so as he comes to my desk ;)
Well, I was amazed the way he was giving me some tips about relationship.
I respect him for his age and he often gives me advice just coz I listen to him: D

I was not aware that ‘Rakshabandhan’ (bro -sis festival), is tomorrow until he mentioned it. He was telling about his sister who just lives a few miles away from him and …

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

I wish I could print the work calendar for myself today….there was not a single point where I had no meeting…:D…it started from 9 and ended at 5 p.m. All different meetings but it was simply traveling from one meeting room to another!

“A meeting is an event where minutes are taken and hours wasted.” ~ James T. Kirk

I felt like writing about this journey to rooms …until my last meeting which in my life-time I have never experienced.

“There are two ways of meeting difficulties: You alter the difficulties or you alter yourself to meet them.” ~ Phyllis Bottome

Basically, I was invited into this meeting due to some change happening in some crap system and someone said it might have impact on to our system ;)...well its always good to make sure from the RACI point of view but then I think one should know what changes are going to happen and what they may think will impact others.

Anyway, we all came …
