The country is full of good coaches. What it takes to win is a bunch of interested players

Today is special day for two reasons…one for India to win the Twenty-20 World cup and second for getting my childhood friend back :)

"Life becomes precious and more special to us when we look for the little everyday miracles and get excited about the privileges of simply being human" ~ Tim Hansel

Day started with a slight dry cough but the excitement of this cricket match was more severe than anything else!

By now the whole world know about it, I only want to say young people can always do better but the older ones can guide too ;)! Yes, that’s what I feel- respect for those who did a good job in their time too!

“How you respond to the challenge in the second half will determine what you become after the game, whether you are a winner or a loser. “ -Lou Holtz

The match started on a rough note but later took a good lead though the runs were not that good which would give a tough time to the Pak team!

When Pak innings came…it was going so well with all pressure on Pak that suddenly with bunch of sixes the pressure slowly slipped on to Indian team…boy this match was worth the money that people might have spent to watch it in South Africa. History was made!!!

“The difference between the impossible and the possible lies in a mans determination” -Tommy Lasorda

I was mesmerized with the win when my childhood friend came online and we were just chatting for hours, cherishing memories which will never come back neither we can go to them! I was amazed to hear about myself as a lot has changed and as my friend kept on saying about me…I was like exploring myself – the childhood and my nature as a kid!

We as friend supported each other, played so many games, read books and what not!!!

“True friendship consists not in the multitude of friends, but in their worth and value”

It was living that life again as my friend was reading the page out of our childhood.

I loved being with my friend and chatting for so long..!

We promised to be in touch with each other and not loose each other in the midst of busy life.

I am so glad my friend I found you at last :)

“The greatest challenge to any thinker is stating the problem in a way that will allow a solution”

Lately lot of things happened…good and bad! But then I am a believer…what ever happens…it happens for good!

That’s the policy hence I never regretted in life whatever has happened as everything is for a reason and to teach us the aspect of life. Sometimes we learn it from outside with others experience and sometimes it’s within us with our own experience.

“Many of us crucify ourselves between two thieves - regret for the past and fear of the future.” ~ Fulton Oursler

But one thing I realized about people, that are when a person leaves an organization, place, town, city, state, country…people talk always about how bad they were and am not saying this is about every person but yes about few whom they always felt was a challenge for them to face. Some people don’t like others just because they feel there presence makes them feel how less intelligent or good or whatever they are! And at such time people tend to avoid just so that there inability doesn’t show up publicly!

“BACKBITE, v.t. To speak of a man as you find him when he can't find you.” ~ Ambrose Bierce

When a person leaves the world…every one talks only good about him/her….why?

My question is why not be just true! Yeah I feel sorry the person had to die in this manner but he/she has hurt me once and I never was friendly to that person…by saying so is there any harm?

I think people don’t have guts to talk about what they feel about people and I don’t blame them as it could be again many reasons – one the person doesn’t want any conflicts with people and two the person is scarred of the consequences etc!

We have quite a bunch of people at work who always make sure to make one or the other person’s life miserable! Don’t know why but they feel that’s the way one should work!

Gosh! Why people forget about professionalism in a professional place is a big question!

I used to think housewives are the one who gossip as they have time for it…but I realize one can start that at work also if they are not occupied with enough work!

"If you haven't got anything nice to say about anybody, come sit next to me." ~Alice Roosevelt Longworth

How to deal with such people, who like to solve there problems such as getting sign offs etc by taking them to lunch! Its like they will not hesitate to insult a person in a meeting in a big audience and later take them for lunch :D…am just waiting when is my turn as I lately got an offer for lunch and am wondering what they want out of me :D!

To be thankful so far didn’t get to work closely with them but am sure it will be fun if I do get as…it will be a matter of professionalism dealing with unprofessional: D

“Professionalism is knowing how to do it, when to do it, and doing it.” ~ Frank Tyger

What I have written above is all the multiple thoughts that are taking place in mind due to many things happening at work…! Yeah that’s what happens when I don’t blog every day :D…! But am glad am able to track cricket match lately…good win by India ;)

Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.

This long weekend besides meeting and greeting friends...I had time to watch some of the movies too! I cherish those moments when my thoughts get a pause and
My mind gets an opportunity to climb on the wind to flow by... :)

“What we are today comes from our thoughts of yesterday, and our present thoughts build our life of tomorrow: Our life is the creation of our mind.”

I saw this movie 'The Blue Umbrella' ~ based on Ruskin Bond novella of the same name, Vishal Bharadwaj and his scriptwriters have embellished and created some
extra sections with the help of ..Of course the Author: D! Its an awesome movie to be frank!!! The umbrella connotes desire and status, love and greed.
Vishal weilds a magical wand, creating a profound, simplistic tale of humanity and emotion

“Feelings are much like waves, we can't stop them from coming but we can choose which one to surf.” ~Jonatan MÃ¥rtensson
And to add the cherry on the cake the songs are written by no one else
But my fav poet should listen to the songs it just brings that sunshine and chirpiness in oneself when you listen to that song and
The one that says "‘Mera tesu yehi aanra, khane ko maange dahi vada’ is so typically Gulzar, only he can bring the child in an adult's heart :)
I just simply loved it!!!!

“You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.” ~Franklin P. Jones

It’s a simple yet a worth teaching moral to all of us! Pankaj Kapur has justified his role with his brilliant performance by bringing in the various shades of emotions
That human goes through! His typical humor...all is worth watching! The child artist Shreya is really endearing I must say!!!

“Childhood: The period of human life intermediate between the idiocy of infancy and the folly of youth -- two removes from the sin of manhood and three from the remorse of age.”

A very well planned weekend ended with this movie which was a surprise to me!!!!

A Bart ride one afternoon...

This afternoon for some reason instead of taking Uber I decided to take Bart. When you are not used to public transport for long ti...
