“I love a hand that meets my own with a grasp that causes some sensation.”

In a working environment, as much as comfort, tools and other amenities are required for one to do his/her job, so is something called ‘respect’

“He who wants a rose must respect the thorn.” ~ Persian Proverb

I believe if a person who has some element of self-respect will definitely won’t do a charity also without any respect for him/her

“Never take a person's dignity: it is worth everything to them, and nothing to you.” ~ Frank Barron

A person whether he/she is eligible for a certain kind of work or is over qualified for the job both have the right to deserve the respect, as without respect I think no saint will try to remain as saint unless it is our MK Gandhi :D

“You should respect each other and refrain from disputes; you should not, like water and oil, repel each other, but should, like milk and water, mingle together.” ~ Buddha
A incidence took place today and for which I felt that the person who is well educated and over qualified for the kind of job he/she is doing; tries to br…

Its been a long weekend due to Thanks Giving in US. I had an opportunity to be with some friends and at the same be host for some of my friends!

“A friend is someone who understands your past, believes in your future, and accepts you just the way you are.”

Mean while I had a chance to visit Half Moon Bay which comes on the way to Santa Cruz and the pictures will speak more on the nature’s painting!

“In nature, nothing is perfect and everything is perfect. Trees can be contorted, bent in weird ways, and they're still beautiful.” ~ Alice Walker
“If the grass is greener on the other side of the fence, you can bet the water bill is higher” ;)
“Reading about nature is fine, but if a person walks in the woods and listens carefully, he can learn more than what is in books, for they speak with the voice of God.” ~ George Washington Carver



I loved the sunset very much along with the greenery, waves on the shores and the slight reddish sky with tinch of orange and blue!

“I've noticed that b…

Yesterday was a usual day…I knew I am going to attend the program ‘Kaifi Aur Main’ ~ a program/drama on poetries written by Kaifi Azmi (A great poet and a true country man) delivery through Kaifi Azmi’s wife Shaukat Azmi (actress and a true party woman). The diary written by Shaukat Azmi was read by her daughter Shabana Azmi and the poetry was recited by, well known poet and one of my favorite Javed Akhtar Sahab (Shabana Azmi’s husband)

“Sweet the coming on / Of grateful evening mild; then silent night / With this her solemn bird and this fair moon, / And these the gems of heaven, her starry train.”

The presentation was awesome as Shabana reading her mom’s diary with the expression the mother wrote how she fall in love with Kaifi Azmi and the momentary poems that were written by Kaifi Azmi for his beloved Shaukat Azmi was read by Javed Akhtar and to add the cherry on the cream – Jaswinder Singh ~ yes the same friend of mine about whom I had mentioned in my blog ~ he sang some beautiful …

As usual...since I heard of James Bond's movie and the related controversies for the new Blonde Bond..:) the tinch of anxiousness grew to watch this movie :D
So far...I have always seen Bond's movie on the day its released ....this time there were other things that kept me engaged but hey...its not too late...:D....Today I had a chance to watchi Bond ...that too the Blonde Bond :D!
I had seen Daniel Craig's (Blonde Bond) interview on NBC, and I kind a liked him but I was more curious to see him in and as James Bond :D...and friends...let me tell you - He is HOT ;)

There are many new things about this Bond and good things ! He is like a sprinster and yes he is very active, robust and fast!

But one thing in the beginning of this movie there is a terrific chase of a Uganda guy (I found him super hero ;) and yes that's how the Blonde Bond gets the intro..)
This makes me believe there will be one day when the Bond will be someone from South Africa too...boy they have the ter…

Remember, we all stumble, every one of us. That's why it's a comfort to go hand in hand.

Today am going to talk about relationship and the fast paced life!
It seems like today I got an opportunity to relax back and give a glance to the past
And I was wondering how things were in our parents time…or even when we were kids

"Half our life is spent trying to find something to do with the time we have rushed through life trying to save"
I remember how my Dad, used to take us to city for shopping, watching new movie in theater and then dinning out and always without forgetting my ice-cream :D…yes I always remember how my dad, used to whisper about my ice-cream order to the waiter with a wink to me so that mom doesn’t know whats going on :D…and by the time the waiter brings the order, my mom used to give a look…as if why special for her :D

“Love lasts when the relationship comes first.”
Yes, all this reminds me how family tie-ups were there and am sure some of the ladies such as my mom would agree that Dad used to spend time with family if not going any where but at least…

“For today and its blessings, I owe the world an attitude of gratitude.”

Friends...since my childhood, my birthday has always been a big celebration! I guess my parents did celebrated it in grand and the routine went on...years went by but my celebration I remember used to start a month before the actual date :) and I was surprised this year...I was reminded about my birthday (which is like a shock to me as my birthday comes as the falls end and winter begins so you can imagine ...lol)...when I received a friend sent me a gift and on the same day I got my birthday card from my parents....this year is a unique one I must say :D

“It is not more surprising to be born twice than once; everything in nature is resurrection”

And I owe a lot to all my near and dear ones....for wishing me best wishes it started more than a week ago and today it started early morning 6.15 a.m. :)
I find myself very lucky to have such loving people around me to love and bless me for all the good things in this world

I am happy and content!!! I love you all my dear ones ~ Thank you is …
