“There are no failures - just experiences and your reactions to them.”

I had experienced earthquake feel I would say before also ~ once in Toronto in 98, Once in India ~ 2001 and this one was the ultimate Magnitude 5.6 earthquake shake…..what an experience!!!!
“Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”First I was thinking how to tell my top neighbors to walk softly …but by the time this thought cropped in, the whole base of my house started shaking and toppling kind…the chandlers were like the branches and leaves during a windy evening…oh god and guess what after the quake, the USGS reported four aftershocks all measuring under 2.0 within a span of four minutes. I experienced them all without any breaks ;)
"I couldn't help but be impressed by the magnitude of the earthquake."
Well we all were holding hands as the shake diminished :)

Life for Niki was quite as what she decided. She was the one who makes decisions for her and she was doing quiet well that way!
She found her life partner and made sure she lives her rest of the life with him. She was never scared of anything and one can see the optimism and confidence with which she reached glory in life.

“If my mind can conceive it, and my heart can believe it, I know I can achieve it.” ~ Jesse Jackson

Niki was lying in her bed and was in her own thoughts….!

Time was passing like a pleasant breeze. She was doing well in career. By now she had made hundreds of friends all around the world. Her cheerfulness and friendliness never left anyone untouched.

“Courage and cheerfulness will not only carry you over the rough places in life, but will enable you to bring comfort and help to the weak-hearted and will console you in the sad hours” ~ William Oster
It was then when she started noticing things aren’t the way she managed it or expected.
Small things she started missing…her t…

A characteristic of the normal child is he doesn't act that way very often

I was wondering why one keep saying I wanted my kid to be like this and like this. This means they are trying to bring certain values or teachings that probably according to them is good or supposed to be good and there children should have!
“We worry about what a child will become tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.” ~Stacia Tauscher
Looking at this complicated world and the time, I start thinking how my parents or even any parents of those times taught there kids good values…?Well, all I can remember about my parents is that they never told me what to do. I was never taught I should be doing this or that. In fact rather than preaching they practiced. I learn certain things seeing what my parents did, how situations they handled and what kind of decisions were made. What one should say in front of others and what may offend others.

Yesterday was an amazing day even at work and at home too ;) and today yet another beautiful day where I could meet my old friend for lunch and I realize now that we were only talking and talking no one asked about the food or anything else :D! I am glad it was a great catch up after a year!

Yesterday I saw this movie which literally stole away my breath…as the movie was proceeding and it kept the pace even at the end of the movie.

I remember buying the CD of this movie called ‘Yatra’ (meaning Journey), looking at Khayaam’s music , Lyricist like Ahmed Warsi and Naqsh Lyalpuri and the Singers such as Asha Bhosale and Talat Aziz but some how I felt its too classical and didn’t enjoy much!

“The assumption that seeing is believing makes us susceptible to visual deceptions” ~ Kathleen Hall Jamieson

But yesterday when I saw the DVD of this movie, I was more excited as the star casts are ~ Nana Patekar, Dipti Naval …

I am surprised that I was tagged..not that no one has done it infact I would say…someone did it so am still remembered ;) ….its Dear Priya who has tagged me and one thing I want to tell you Priya…your name is really pretty and lovable as you are :D!!!
So I have to post the rules for this tag, which are pasted gracefully from Priya’s post: D

“A work of art that contains theories is like an object on which the price tag has been left.” ~ Marcel Proust

1. One has to post these rules before one gives out the facts.

2. One must list one fact that is somehow relevant to their life for each letter of their middle name. If one doesn’t have a middle name, they can use the middle name that they would have liked to have.

3. At the end of there post, they will have to choose one person for each letter of there middle name to tag. And make sure that each tagged person is notified about this via commenting on there blogs.
Hopefully, they will read the post ;)

I was asked to write on a topic ‘Does love need a reason?’ by one of my Orkut friend!
Well, when I was asked my straight answer was that ….no love doesn’t need any reason..it just happens, isn’t it? Or there is someone who disagrees!

“Don't find love, let love find you. That's why it'scalled falling in love, because you don't forceyourself to fall, you just fall.”

Well, I am sure different people will have different reasoning to this based on there personal experience. I believe love doesn’t need any reason it just happens! Some may later dig into it to find what the reason was and they relate it to one or the other!

“It takes a minute to have a crush on someone,an hour to like someone, and an day to love someone...but it takes a lifetime to forget someone”

This is a true story when a girl-Sarah with her fiancé Michael came from Australia to visit India. They planned there visit from Kanyakumari to Kashmir and hence they hired a Guide - Subramanian.
This Guide was suffering…
