Fight the fire!

10:00 am : While I am in the middle of sending frantic emails, getting done some pending work order estimates, munching on my half eaten sandwich and passive trotting on a phone conversation (yes I DO need a clone)  the block fire alarm goes blaring out loud!

10:01 am : Oh please.. I don’t have time for a drill! Some other time fellas (no interruption in my work)

10:03 am : OK! This is no drill.. RUN.. WAIT.. grab your wallet.. and your car keys.. and your laptop (some disorders that come when you have been working too long.. ur love for your office essentials!!)

10:05 am : Outside the building with two huge fire wagons and handsome fire fighters (don’t know if it was the dull morning or just me) doing what they do the best.. Display COURAGE, CONFIDENCE and Fight fire with fire. (Though I still hadn’t figured where the fire was!!!)

"I'm usually a quiet type, but I talk way too much when I get nervous." A fine gentleman wearing crisp white shirt, may be in late 30’s, holding a tumbler and a tablet speaks from behind me. From the first look I knew he was non-Siemens.. all men in my building feel pride in wearing shirt with Siemens embroidered on it!

 ~Finding uncanny~ looking back with a partial smile, acknowledge.

20 minutes and Few more un-important conversations later..

“What?? (Me all stumbled) ”

“I haven’t been to any restaurant in last 1-2yrs.. I always do take out”

(It’s a huge deal for an American)

“Yes, I can’t afford being out in a crowded area.” “There is no way I can take the risk of carrying any infections back home” 

Crowd disperses.. appears that a short circuit had taken us globetrotting ..

I still shocked of what I had heard.. and a bit shaken, dragged myself back.. I also saw this gentlemen entering my office.. I was wrong.. he did work in the same branch.

The person who gave me a unsettling impression at first had suddenly transformed protagonist!

As I deliberately passed his cubicle with intention to get another glimpse of brave heart I met.. a note outside his cubicle read :

We all have loved ones in our life.. some we adore.. some we take for granted. This made me ponder on situations life can put one in and how bravely one can handle them, just as those fire fighters I saw this morning. Courage is not absence of fear, but the judgment that something else is more important than fear!

Life is short.. They DID raise the bar for me..

I feel like I’m on autopilot every day. I get up, cook, do motherly chores, go to work, go home, run some errands, and go to sleep. And that’s a scary place to be. Cause I’ve got dreams.


Price for stardom!!

Dear Kunal,

Long time no see !! How have you been...??

I am very disturbed today.... Ask why ?

While I was drooling over your pictures surfacing on the web I found some very upsetting messages, I’d like to take this time to tell you that I AM VERY SORRY THAT SOME GIRLS ARE BALMY CRAZY.

I know your picture is really seksy, appealing, tantalizing, fascinating but should that be a reason for these fans to comment in such an obscene manner ??!!??

Being a polite and shy guy I am sure you would let them get away with no complaints… but Kunal every man has his limits! No ???

(Seriously, girls. Stop. Desperation is so dingy.)

Please, Kunu, do not judge everyone based on these crazy few. There are plenty of us out there who know that you have respect for personal space.

So yes, while I may own a poster/magazine/photo-collage//DVD posing you, I PROMISE that if someday I saw you on the street, I would not tackle you in an attempt to make you my very very very own.

(I might giggle and whip out my phone to try and snap a picture, though. I'm not gonna lie.)

I know your career is also moving on a slow track with no releases lined up, but let me tell you for some one so ridiculously-sexy and appealing it’s a waste to get into roles that may not look the best on you J. Remember that this time will pass and soon you will again top the charts!!

I wanna apologize again on behalf of all the crazy fangirls who try to force themselves on you, (Ladies, pls leave him alone)

Loads of love ALWAYS,



P.S. If you ever need anywhere to come hide out for awhile, my door is always open. I will make sure my dad doesn’t complain and my mom and her friends don’t crowd you!

Sweet sorrows

For all who have been cribbing that I don’t show up on any plans, here are some updates from my end - Last few weeks have been vastly hectic, my bro got admit to pursue his Masters so I've been working on my alliance of logging things to carry, shopping (no complains on this), bundling and finally bulletin these items so bee (for those joining late this is wat i call my bro Sagar) knows where's what in those bags!

Meanwhile befell celebration time during Rakhi, my favorite festival as I earn a lot get to splurge time wid all my much-loved brothers! I was insisting bee this time he should surprise gift me things I wanted but meano’s as younger ones are he thinks I get unreasonable ( a pug lion leopard & jewelry). Damn that guy. So I had to accept his regular cash packed with that conventional looks which says I am smiling bcz am ur bro and laughing cz there is nothing much you can do about it !

It was all well till the day of his departure arrived, which was when I got cognizant of what it actually meant!! We were flocked with so many guests leaving hardly any segment of him for SIMPLY me. Just then the cab arrived, we prayed together … that’s when I couldn’t stop my flow of emotions and choked up. It took a lot to oppress my untamed behavior... I swore wouldn't bawl in front of bee till the while he departs.. After reaching the airport saw him unite with so many other friends who linked him for LA… felt really light.. plunking all those thoughts and worries to rest!

I could barely sleep that night... when I woke up I just blindly entered bee's room to find it .... Empty... :-(... the room was clean, things were in place, PC was shut, I didn’t have my pet there whom I could wake up sneaking in his blanket, pulling his hair, dabbing my cold hands over his stomach, or simply joining him for a second round of nap! The most horrible morning had just started!!

I went to the washroom.. the toilet seat was covered... my whole set of lotions, soaps, gels all in place.. man how much i missed yelling explaining him to keep my things in place… my morning felt so incomplete without it! ~~Tapak Tapak~~ and then the stream didn’t cease for a long time..

I had to gobble my breakfast with no fights, no competitions, no lecture from mom who refers her dear son for lessons on good food habits…

I couldn’t imagine going to office without my chauffer buddy who always had no option but to listen to my gossips even though he hates them the most! I mean What's the good of news if you haven't a brother to share it? There were no exchange blows for remote… I could watch all my programs which he articles “complete nonsense”. I didn’t have to battle to lie on ma’s lap… though I must admit I didn’t enjoy winning her without a contest! I later cleared up his room and both ma n me couldn’t stop recalling epics associated with every single thing present… These small memoirs multiplied and kept drumming in my mind !!

There is a little boy inside the guy who is my brother.Oh, how I hated that little boy. And how I love him too. It was nice growing up with someone like bee - someone to lean on, someone to count on... someone to tell on!

Days are pretty dull now… hopefully time will heel this soon! It sure now looked as one hard decision, especially because this was the first time he left home but like loads refute education is important and once done he would make us proud :)

Also one of my friend suggested that the brighter side to it was I would get more gifts ;)

Sagar, please make sure that you don’t prove her wrong!

Why do we do this ?

What a synopsis on indians !!

Chocolate: Here today .... Gone today!

My love for Chocolates started with my theory that chocolate slows down the aging process.... It may not be true, but do I dare take the chance? Since then one thing that I religiously followed was Put "eat chocolate" at the top of my list of things to do today. That way, at least I’ll get one thing done.

But then what also followed was my dentist getting Riche rich and quality of my tooth becoming rotten poor!

I had to take a root canal for 2 and few fillings on those valuable contributors who helped me turn chocoholic :-)... Just when I had a painful time recovering from this my mean friends didn’t leave a single chance to egg on me…. This is what I see in my inbox one fine morning !!!

Nahi Rahe Wo Tere Daat

(c) Pavan Bhattad

Yaad aate hai din aur raat

Ghoomte the hum sab saath saath

Ab nahi rahi wo baat

Nahi rahe jo tere daat

Teri hasi pe mar mitate the

saare naujawan ek saath

ab kya tu has payegi

chale gaye hai tere daat

Thumakti hui tu chalti thi

they ajab nirale tere thaat

ab mooh chupaye niklegi

nahi rahe hai tere daat

Pahle jab khaana khati thi

ek ghanta lag jaata tha

ab khaati hai bas daal bhaat

Nahi rahe wo tere daat

Fikra na kar, tu na dar

yakeen hai hume, tuzme hai wo baat

Colgate, Pepsodent khayenge maat

Jab chamkenge chandi ke daat

I could give up chocolate but I'm not a quitter !!!

now i will sit and hunt the Bday-cum-Vacation draft i had.... i hope I find something somewhere..... :( :(


First blog post in true sense and what better matter than my recent bday-cum-vacation-cum-rejuvenating experience :)

For last couple of years I have been crazily stuck up with office chores ceasing all the zing to celebrate weekends. I remember when I was just out of college, a weekend off used to sound like a luxury. No work, no studies, no assignments….!! My planning used to start mid week on the sketch for weekend activities. Gone are those days but now I promised myself to stop playing a bum and get back to self!!!… so action plan was a week vacation for Bday celebration!!

Snow and Water are two things I just can’t get enough of! So planned a trip to Dapoli, with the serene sea shore it hosts there couldn’t have been a better place to start my new birth year :)

Plan was to leave by Friday evening (19th June) , reach there by night and spend a couple of days there. But with the thought of going to the shore I already packed my work by 12:30pm :D

I am sure if anyone sent me an email at 1pm they would have received an Out of office reply too :D

We started from Pune at around 4pm, route was

Via Tamhini Ghat (200 km)

• Pune --- Paud – Pirangut Road --- Tamhini Ghat --- Turn left at Vile
• Vile --- Nijampur --- Mangaon .You will reach NH – 17.
• NH – 17 --- Turn right at Lonere Phata --- Goregaon --- Turn left towards Purar / Nandavi.
• Purar --- Ambet --- Dapoli (After Ambet, follow sign boards till Dapoli).
• After Ambet follow sign boards to reach Dapoli.
(Road map: Pune - Chandani Chauk - Paud - Mulshi - Dongarwadi - Tamhini Ghat - Vile - Nijampur - Mangaon - Lonere Phata - Goregaon - Ambet - Mhapral - Shenale - Mandangad - Dapoli)

Just before departing we witnessed the first few drops of this monsoon (Personally to me it was some indicator to display how much Pune would miss me for a week: D).

The road is pretty picturesque with green plantation all through. But hell! After 7pm the entire space was pitch dark… esp the patch from Ambet-Dapoli… I mean no vehicles on the road… no lights… no creature nothing!!! All we could lay eyes on was our car beam through the blackout. Man it was damn damn spooky. Once a thought ran into my mind what if my car gets a flat tyre here !!! Believe it or not tab se leke till the while we reached Dapoli I was constantly chanting naukar mantra (secretly) ;-). I badly needed a pit stop for some natural emergency but all I noted was “Sadak pe masti, jaan nahi sasti”

We reached Dapoli at around 9pm. We had already booked our stay at Aryawarta, true paradise. The place was such a bliss after that meteoric journey! This place owns appealingbunglows (ours below) on hilltop amidst nature. We had a family celebration at midnight followed by scores of phone calls for bday wishes… how old am I now?.... o Age is a number and mine is unlisted ;-)….

Morning began with cock-a-doodle-doo… my bro kept boasting he could hear some peacocks too and we almost missed a chance to track them as we spotted one and ran after to stumble upon a chicken… heck !! These tiny ones I tell you… why don’t they grasp from the elders and in case of Sagar he has ME even then… pretty disappointing!! We went for a nice walk in the morning on the beach... then some site seeing to Anjarle - Harnai and kelshi.These places are famous for blue water and sand dunes.

Evening was followed by touch of adventure with Beach parasailing on Murud beach. Perfect way of closing my D-Day :-)

Next morning we hook the boat to get a glimpse of dolphins which are seen in large on murud beach early hours, later followed our journey to diveagar, another sea shore area. We had to take a trip from Dapoli towards BanKot, guided by a ferryboat to cross the river. 5kms from this place takes you to Harihareshwar. There is a nice temple located on the beach. From here close by is Shrivardhan not much to see here.

Diveagar is approx 20kms from Harihareshwar. The beach here is also calm, clean and serene. Best part in diveagar were‘ukdiche modak’ and solkadi . One can never go here and miss them. You cannot eat more than two modaks at a time… they are so deliciously huge and filling !! After a days stay started our excursion back home… So dense was I with the very thought… dad had to promise me roof on the beach to decamp!

I have had a holiday, and now on I'd like to take it up professionally. Back after a stupendous time but bronzed by atleast 5 tones :-( And thanks to some meano’s who even put a step further by calling me a camouflage – disappear when slight dark and visible in more light…. So what if I don’t (temporarily) have the color to stop their black eye but I have a new Ipod Touch 2G which sure gives them a green-eye ;-)
