This post of mine is something which I had thought of writing and then you know one of those days when you are not able to write due to your busy schedule or when you are sick …yup this was supposed to come before that confused state of mine post :D..!

If you remember I had posted on paint ball game and the gun craze in USA, yes and as I look around myself I see these many and find that common people find it very difficult to raise there kids!

The other day I happened to be invited for a get-together where everyone gathered…people with there husbands and kids and everyone had a gala of time as for people like me :D….delicious food was prepared and for men who would like to drink had those arrangements too!
Kids were the most excited as they were able to meet there friends whom us…

Today I am going to write about my childhood memory which now a days keeps on coming into my mind…and sometimes I wonder is it trying to give me some kind of signal …!!??!!

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

Well this is when I was 1st grade and I remember our school was a co-ed and hence the whole class was made to sit as one gal and one boy! You will never see any two gals sitting together or two boys sitting together.
I also had a bench partner – a Punjabi Jatt guy Harpal Singh, I often remember him..in fact even now I remember him in his maroon turban the one the kids have not the grown-ups. It was only on Wednesdays that he used to wear a white one since that was our PT day and everything has to be white. But I used to like him very much in the sense I always used to feel I have a special bench mate with the turban where as all other boys were without turban!
Harpal, though a true jatt in physical aspect because many t…

Yes! its been a long break after the Onam feast...I guess that also gives a lesson as no matter how good and tasty the food is..one must think of his/her own capacity ;)

"I seldom think of my limitations, and they never make me sad. Perhaps there is just a touch of yearning at times; but it is vague, like a breeze among flowers"

Well...its not that I had nothing to blog but I guess more or less it was at a point where I had too many things to blog and you know what I was not being myself...coz otherwise I wont be thinking whether to blog or not! Hence what! I lost my topics and thoughts too :(

“I know that you believe you understand what you think I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.”

But never mind...I have retained my spontanity where I will write whatever I think about ...whatever that prompts and provokes my thoughts :D

So for now....no more chillin ;)

Onam the time when Mahabali visits the state Kerala where everyone want to show this king that his people are living in happy and lively :) ! This is expressed by having variety of food (believe me you will love them all - its pure vegitarian), though there were discussions on this that its not compulsory to have veg as after all its to express your joy and happiness and if someone is happy with non-veg then why not ..lol!
Well, I had the opportunity to meet at a friend's place where it was a pot-luck sadya (feast). There were lots and lots of delicious food items and four types of payasams (desert).

“I am not a glutton - I am an explorer of food”

To add the beauty and welcoming note there were flowers decorations as shown above to welcome Mahabali for this year Onam.
I had an awesome time, did you all Mallu's? Well let me take this opportunity to wish all the Keralites across the world a Very Happy and Joyful Onam. May Mahabali bring the good luck to you and your family.

Thursday was a very normal day. There wasn’t much work on the project and we had a team event planned in the afternoon – Paintball Game :D

I didn’t bring the proper clothing for this game and hence was in two minds whether to join the crowd or not…but by the time it was 1:00 p.m. everyone started pushing me to go home and change as we have play against Development team ;) and guess what I took off for home and got changed and reached the venue of the game.

“You have to learn the rules of the game. And then you have to play better than anyone else.” ~ Albert Einstein

This game I have never played before but I have seen on TV which I could only figure-out when I was in the game! In Canada, at least in Toronto I have never heard of such a game and neither there have they allowed anything that has to do with a toy-gun!

“A Canadian is sort of like an American, but without the gun”

You have to wear multiple layers of clothing and you get the vests and masks and gun with the paint balls. These ba…
