Guitar classes starting from tomorrow.... :-)

Image
Well, am so excited.....

After so many years its one class thats am excited to go and join. Its been my eternal dream to learn and play guitar and finally after ages its been gonna be fructify...

Why it took so much long, I dont have answers. i mean that there is not much vast difference between few years then and now...Guess, to everything its Turn,Turn,Turn!!!

There is no other valid reasoning...

I will have to definitely fork out some more time apart from my cooking and evening walk but then its gonna be fun...

So am gonna loan the guitar from Josh and finally if I do able to stick with the routine for a week or so then will buy my own Gibson...

Lets see how it goes, would keep pn posting but am definitely so excited....

Lead guitarist in making :-)

Against the law.....

Seems bewildering but then its true and I have been observing this fact for quite a many years.

Whenever I go for running or walking, for half of the duration I go one way and then return the same way. In that manner its quite easy to time your progress..

What I observed that I almost always complete my second half of distance a bit earlier than the first, now thats really surprising because it should not happen that way in any case.

When you have already finished half of the distance, you are tired, sapped of precious energy and fluid and bound to slow down and not on the contrary be fast....But thats what has been happening with me..

I dont know the reason for the same but have been trying to configure the same for quite some time...

May be its the sub-conscious which dont let you slow down, may be it always wants you to be a winner or at least fight for every fight and configures within the self, the second part of the journey to be a fight, which you have to win against your own body.

SHAUK HAI.....

Raat ka shauk hai
Raat ki saundhi si khamoshi ka
Shauk hai

Subha ki roshni
Bezubaan subho ki aur gungunati roshni ka
Shauk hai

San sani anwlo ka
Ke ishq ke banwlon ka
San sani anwle
Ke ishq ke banwle
Barf se khelte badolon ka
Shauk hai

Kaash ye zindagi
Khel hi khel mein kho gayi hoti
Raat ka shauk hai

Neend ki goliyon ka
Khwab ke loriyon ka
Neend ki goliyan
Khwab ke loriyan
Bezubaan aus ki boliyon ka
Shauk hai

Kaash ye zindagi
Ankahe ansune so gayi hoti
Subha ki roshni

500 POSTS......AAAAMAAAAZZZZZZIIIIIINNNNNNGGGG!!!!

ITS BEEN SUCH A WONDERFUL JOURNEY WITH MY BLOG FOR ALMOST 4 YEARS NOW. GUESS, THE ONLY OFFICIAL HOBBY OF MINE AND THE SAVING GRACE BUT I HAVE ENJOYED EVERY SINGLE MINUTE OF MY BLOGGING.

THERE ARE AT LEAST A BILLION THINGS WHICH I WANT TO WRITE ON (INCLUDING THE CRAPS) BUT THEN YOU WANT TO DO SO MANY THINGS BUT ARE NOT ABLE TO...

THIS YEAR IS GONNA BE DIFFERENT AND MY PRIMARILY GOAL IS TO HAVE MORE POSTS THAN MY FIRST YEAR AND GOING BY THE SPEED AM GOING, I SHOULD BE ABLE TO CROSS THAT NUMBER.
THOUGH IT WONT BE AN ACHIEVEMENT IN A SERIOUS SENSE AS THOSE MANY BLOGS WERE WRITTEN IN ONLY HALF-YEAR SPAN AND HERE I HAD ONE YEAR TO BEAT THAT.

BUT THEN, I HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO BEAT THAT NUMBER IN LAST 3 YEARS SO EVEN IF AM ABLE TO BEAT THAT NUMBER OF 185 POSTS THIS YEAR, ITS A KIND OF ACHIEVEMENT FOR ME.

AM HAPPY THAT I HAVE BEEN AT LEAST KEPT MY BLOG ALIVE, OTHERWISE I HAVE BEEN SO BAD IN SUSTAINING :-(

I know what my second company will do !!! :-)

People familiar with me will think that have gone berserk, guess I have.

Even before PriceSticker is up and running, I am already thinking and working( if you devote time to a thought, then you can safely call it "working") on my next venture.
Well "Education" is one of the biggest industry in our country and presents a tremendous opportunity to connect with the Youth of this country, who now consists most of our population (most of the population is less than 30 years of age, have been poor with statistics).
While you connect with these guys and gals at an early age, you have a distinct advantage as these are the people who are going to be tomorrow's money spenders and consumers and are most tech-savvy.

Its very common-sense that, if you have to catch your customer then better catch them young and thats what am gonna do, your relationship has a better chance of survival then.

A talk with one of my close friend yesterday night after ages got this spark flying and if…

Time to be a Butterfly......

Image
And I want to fly away and fly free, free from all the clutches that have been holding me back for so long and for so many years...

A caterpillar turns into a butterfly, but in my case the transition has been held back for more than the desired period.

Sometimes, its the inertia, sometimes its the fear, sometimes the clutches of so many haunts and may be for all the times the lack of a desperate desire to fly...

As if, I was happy being a caterpillar, even though I wanted to fly but then there was no desperation.

But then, I wont get a chance to fly forever and then you dont want to die as a Caterpillar..

And so here, am trying to break-free from everything thats old and which belonged to this Caterpillar....

I am gonna fly for sure for this time...
"HOW DOES ONE BECOME A BUTTERFLY?" SHE ASKED."YOU MUST WANT TO FLY SO MUCH THAT YOU ARE WILLING TO GIVE UP BEING A CATERPILLAR."

I Wanna hold your hand...

I Want To Hold Your Hand
(John Lennon, Paul McCartney)
Lead Vocal: John Lennon


Oh yeh, I'll tell you something
I think you'll understand
When I'll say that something
I wanna hold your hand
I wanna hold your hand
I wanna hold your hand

Oh please, say to me
You'll let me be your man
And please, say to me
You'll let me hold your hand
You'll let me hold your hand
I wanna hold your hand

And when I touch you I feel happy inside
It's such a feeling that my love
I can't hide, I can't hide, I can't hide

Yeh, you've got that something
I think you'll understand
When I'll say that something
I wanna hold your hand
I wanna hold your hand
I wanna hold your hand

And when I touch you I feel happy inside
It's such a feeling that my love
I can't hide, I can't hide, I can't hide

Yeh, you've got that something
I think you'll understand
When I'll feel that something
I wanna hold your hand
I wanna hold your hand
I wanna hold your hand
I wanna hold your hand

Dont Worry Be Happy!!!

Here's a little song I wrote
You might want to sing it note-for-note
Don't worry, be happy
In every life we have some trouble
But when you worry, you make it double
Don't worry, be happy Don't worry, be happy now

Ooo-oo-hoo-hoo-oo hoo-hoo-oo-oo-oo-oo-ooo Don't worry
Woo-oo-woo-oo-woo-oo-ooo Be happy
Woo-oo-oo-oo-ooo Don't worry, be happy

Ooo-oo-hoo-hoo-oo hoo-hoo-oo-oo-oo-oo-ooo Don't worry
Woo-oo-woo-oo-oo-oo-ooo Be happy
Woo-oo-woo-oo-ooo Don't worry, be happy

Ain't got no place to lay your head
Somebody came and took your bed
Don't worry, be happy
The landlord say your rent is late
He may have to litigate
Don't worry, (ha-ha ha-ha ha-ha) be happy (look at me, I'm happy)

Ooo-oo-hoo-hoo-oo oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-ooo Don't worry
Oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-ooo Be happy
Oo-oo-oo-oo-ooo (Here, I'll give you my phone number. When you're
worried, call me. I'll make you happy.)
Ooo-oo-hoo-hoo-oo oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-ooo Don't worry
Woo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo Be happy

There she goes
There she goes again Racing through my brain
And I just can't contain
This feeling that remains

There she blows
There she blows again Pulsing through my veins
And I just can't contain
This feeling that remains

There she goes (There she goes again)
There she goes again (There she goes again)
Racing through my brain (There she goes)
And I just can't contain
This feeling that remains

There she goes
There she goes again
She calls my name she pulls my train
No one else could heal my pain
And I just can't contain
This feeling that remains

There she goes (She calls my name)
There she goes again (She calls my name)
Chasing down my lane (She calls my name)

6.THINGS TO DO BEFORE I TURN 40- I WILL BUY A MERCEDES BENZ.

Image
This is not part of the original list which am preparing, but then it had to be there....

Now, this is utterly crazy. A list of things like this should not hold any materialistic desire. But then for me, she is my love and it was love at first sight, many years ago and long ago even I had not attained puberty.

I debated on it for long, that whether I should chase her and whoa.... could not resist that.

I know thats gonna have me lose some sleep and may be quite a lot of it but then I dont mind as long as she is there besides me, before I turn 40.

Now there is one motivation more than that, It would finally force me out of my complacency, and would make me to work and to launch "PriceSticker" ASAP.

Thats my only ticket to my Merc, obviously not the only one.

Thats gonna lots of hardwork and sacrifice, but then am gonna get my gal now....

A man boards a Kingfisher flight from Delhi to Mumbai and takes his
seat.
As he settles in, he glances up and sees a gorgeous woman boarding the
plane. He soon realizes she's heading straight towards his seat.
Lo and behold, she takes the seat right next to his.

Eager to strike up a conversation, he asks 'Business trip or vacation?'
She turns, smiles, and says, 'Business. I'm going to the annual
Sexologists Convention.'

He swallows hard. Here is the most gorgeous woman he has ever seen,
sitting next to him, and she's a sexologist! Struggling to contain his
excitement and maintain his composure, he calmly asks, 'What's your business role
at this convention?'

'Lecturer,' she says, 'I use my experience to debunk some of the popular
myths about sexuality.'

'Really?' he says, swallowing hard. 'What m-m-m-myths are those?'

'Well,' she explains, 'one popular myth is that African men are the best
endowed when…

Welcome to my Life !!!!

Welcome To My Life

Do you ever feel like breaking down?
Do you ever feel out of place?
Like somehow you just don't belong
And no one understands you
Do you ever wanna runaway?
Do you lock yourself in your room?
With the radio on turned up so loud
That no one hears you screaming

No you don't know what it's like
When nothing feels all right
You don't know what it's like
To be like me

To be hurt
To feel lost
To be left out in the dark
To be kicked when you're down
To feel like you've been pushed around
To be on the edge of breaking down
And no one's there to save you
No you don't know what it's like
Welcome to my life

Do you wanna be somebody else?
Are you sick of feeling so left out?
Are you desperate to find something more?
Before your life is over
Are you stuck inside a world you hate?
Are you sick of everyone around?
With their big fake smiles and stupid lies
While deep inside you're bleeding

NO YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT IT'S LIKE
WELCOME TO MY LIFE
WELCOME TO MY LIF…

I Want All My Days Back.....

Image
There were days where I wanted you back, but I knew and always will
Even the best of memories of then fall through...
Because your gone
and I did nothing wrong.
I loved you,
I cared,
you still did what I feared
left, without explanation
I still
to this day,
don't know why...
Thinking without you
I'll forever cry
You were the only one
I've ever loved
Other guys that came along
meant nothing, I hope you know.
You were my everything
wish you still were... but instead
I'm left with nothing ..

Baby's Day Out !!!!

Image
Its been almost as big as Guinness record for me. I dont remember when was the last time I went shopping on a holiday, twice.

Usually, the routine for me has been the same for me the holidays, just lazing around in the house and do the routine stuff and not move out unless and until compelled to do so.

Even then, the maximum limit is to Josh's house or the nearby supermarket to buy the weekly vegetables and fruits.

But today, its been completely amazing. Amazing the way, I could perk up my ass and move from the obvious distance to different.

Wanted to watch a movie in the afternoon ( thats the inspiration from my dear friend Bharat) but then had to rush as Josh was supposed to come. So just shopped for fruits and vegetables( and hell lot of them, from which I know that majority will just rot away in the refrigerator) and moved back.

Imagine, again in the evening I moved my ass and went to buy stuff for my new corner office :-).

Am amazed, chap!!!

Thats part of the new inspiration from tw…

The C.E.O got the corner office finally...

Image
This has been due for long but then for every thing---Turn,Turn,Turn!!!

Finally I moved my working stuff to the corner of the living room and made it my working space.

So the window is there but I dont intend to open it much unless the rain comes, as it disrurbs your concentration.

Am absolutely loving the new set-up, could be more grandiose but guess it would improve with the time to come.

So there is a new working desk and new chair, and being the set-up in living room I can sometimes watch TV and work together.

At least its been so much more wonderful than the earlier set-up, if all goes well then I shall perk it up the next month itself.

But, first I need to pull in a lot of quality of work before I deserve a further upgrade and I know that I will put it up...

Am happy !!!! :-)

This wait is killing now......

Image
Well, now its almost killing. The entry for the "Economic Times- Power of Ideas" programme was submitted on 23rd of Feb. Now its almost gonna be a month and it will still be a fortnight before the results will be announced.

At first I thought that they wont take more than a fortnight to announce the result but then never thought that the wait would be so long.

Apparently there has been a huge rush of entries and they have been inundated by it seems.

The very obvious is to start working further, but the direction will be clear only when the results of "ET-PoI" are out. In either case, you need to move on. And thats what proving to be so difficult, when its so obvious.

Too much of anxiety, though I know that its not gonna help in any case, only if it would have tilted the results....

No other option than to wait out for a fortnight more :-(

We need our own anthem !!!

Image
The other day myself, Josh and Amit were sitting and chatting at Josh's abode. Like all such occasions the things do turn to guitar and almost half of our time is spent singing and playing guitar(Josh plays it).

Well, some of the songs are our eternal favs and sometimes we do try the new one. But this time, a new thought striked Josh, to have our own anthem. A song which is related about our lives, rather which is about our lives.
A song which we can call our own and which could be an integral part of our regular meetings.

Well, being an owner of 3.5 years old blog with almost 490 blogs on it definitely has one advantage, it can qualify you as a writer (though this crap does not even worth an anonymous blog). Guess, some people do believe that Shit written is definitely better than shit not ever written.

Hence this magnanimous job has been entrusted to me by my dear friends, to get an anthem for us..

And with all humbleness, I accept this grandiose opportunity and honour bestowed on me…

5. THINGS TO DO BEFORE I TURN 40- WOULD CRISS-CROSS INDIA ON A BIKE.

Image
This has been my long standing fantasy.

Its gonna be tough, doing it in a single stretch but I will try to do it. Reading the book by Che Guevera- The Motorcycle Diaries certainly fuelled my aspirations but this thought was always embedded somewhere.
Nothing could be compared to you cruising through long lonely stretches alone and spending your days and nights together on roads.
I have decided against taking any partner so far but if one of my friend agree to be part of this crazy stuff then will surely give-in.
Though like all the different activities I plan to do before I turn 40, would be a fodder for this blog but I may eventually even end up writing a book on this adventure of mine, kind of Indian Motorcycle Diaries. Bon Voyage. . . .

Crazy about figures......

Image
There are few advantages of having a holiday in the middle of the week, like instead of sleeping till late, you wake up early and find suddenly that you dont have to go for work and worry for the routine things like what would be the quantum of business today.....

And invariably, bitten by the incorrigible habit, you open your laptop and for a change, you can resist replying to emails and write a blog and thats what am doing...

Well, with the last blog which I wrote yesterday, am past the 2007 number of my blog. For the lesser mortals that means that (let me explain in detail ie) in the entire year of 2007 I wrote 43 blogs and here I am in less than 2.5 months of 2009, I have already scripted 44 blogs...

Guess,I would be always the same old bastard......Always crazy about the figures and chasing them....

4. THINGS TO DO BEFORE I TURN 40- TO CLIMB THE GREENPEACE MOUNTAIN AT JABALPUR

Image
Well this snap is of "Madan Mahal" of Jabalpur and not appropriate in the context but I had already spent quite a time in finding an appropriate picture and then finally with a very heavy heart settled with this one as I had to use a photograph..

Well, Jabalpur all you people can search, I spent 17 years of my life there and would without asking love to spend rest of my life there. The most beautiful memories of my life are emobodied there and I shall miss them always...

Well, I never knew or for that matter most of us who have been in Jabalpur and specially those who had anything even remotely to do with that mountain, that it has been named GREENPEACE???

Well, I also learnt that a few days back when I joined a group dedicated to Jabalpur on Facebook.

"Greenpeace" is a mountain near GCF Kendriya Vidayala No.1 in GCF Estate, on which there is a huge radio transmission tower. Its the biggest mountain in nearby areas.

I am always a mountain man rather than a sea-shore man…

3.THINGS TO DO BEFORE I TURN 40- WOULD VISIT ALABAMA (US) ONCE AT LEAST

Image
I dont know that movie might not be everybody's favorite but its mine at least and the name of the movie is "Sweet Home Alabama". I have watched it only once on the TV and it stayed with me for a long time to come...

Quite a moving movie, I must say.... Who can forget those lines ever......"What do you want to be married to me for, anyhow? / So I can kiss you anytime I want. "

And in that movie there was this song of the same title "Sweet Home Alabama", I dont know whether the song came first or the movie but I like both of them very much.

In fact I bought a collection of rock songs just because this song was part of that album and from there onwards began my trist with Alabama...

Sweet home Alabama, Where the skies are so blue......And so I could not stop singing for days altogether...

Just after waking up, its my habit to play the CD player to perk myself up and for days altogether this was the song that played on my CD player and later on my cell-phon…

The mystery of Happiness !!!

Image
"There is NO mystery to happiness.

Unhappy men are all alike. Some wound they suffered long ago, some wish denied, some blow to pride, some kindling spark of love put out by scorn – or worse, indifference – cleaves to them, or they to it, and so they live each day within a shroud of yesterdays.
The happy man does not look back. He doesn’t look ahead. He lives in the present.But there’s the rub.

The present can never deliver one thing: meaning.

The ways of happiness and meaning are not the same. To find happiness, a man need only in the moment; he need only live for the moment. But if he wants meaning – the meaning of his dreams, his secrets, his life – a man must reinhabit his past, however dark, and live for the future, however uncertain. Thus nature dangles happiness and meaning before us all, insisting only that we choose between them."

- Jed Rubenfeld 'The Interpretation of Murder'

IF GOD WAS A BANKER !!!!

Image
After quite a long time today, I finished a book in few hours. Though the initial idea was to finish it before the day ends, but then book seemed to be quite an engrossing one and it was almost un-putdownable from the beginning;apart from the customary breaks.

Well, while browsing through the book-shelves of a book-store, the name of the book which caught my attraction and then after I read the brief in few secs, I decided to buy it.

The other positive criteria was that it was written by a fellow from IIM-Bangalore who himself has served top-notch positions in various MNC Banks and also, so far I have read couple of more books by people who have graduated from IIMs and I liked all of them.

The latest of them is "Keep off the grass" and prior to that was "Joker in the pack", both of them thoroughly enjoyable reads.

In that sense, this book kept the reputation of "IIM- Writers" still intact.

Great job done by Ravi Subramanian in writing this piece, absoultely lo…

Finally the Notebook is laptop again....

Image
For me the Notebook was always a Laptop and I used it too in the literal sense at home, atleast. Off-late my Lappy was getting heated quite a lot, may be because of long hours of use...

Now at home, I wear only Jockeys and hence using the Lappy was getting difficult on the lap because of the heat. Sometimes, the heat was too un-bearable to even put the lappy on the lap for a second.

For sometime long, I had been on search for something which can ease this big pain....And lo and behold, I found it a couple of days back.

This is a notebook cooler which you attach to the heat-sink vent of your lappy and connect the power source to the USB port and the fun-running, sucks out the hot-air effectively from the lappy.

Initially, I was very sceptical as the cost of about USD 18, it dint seem worthwhile for a small fan; but then I decided to give it a try and its working quite well.

Finally even on prolong use, I can keep the lappy on my bare-legs and use it.

Finally the notebook is laptop again....

2. THINGS TO DO BEFORE I TURN 40- WANT TO MAKE AND FLY A ROCKET...

Image
The second thing on my list is to able to fly a rocket....

"So you're a rocket scientist, that dont impress me much......." and sang Shania Twain, but am not doing this to impress somebody. Its been my long standing ambition to make and fly a rocket, so many times I started theoretical study but then again it got into the maze of things...

The inspiration basically came from a beautiful film called "October Sky", which is about the dream of a small town boy to make it into rocketry...

Its a tough task to do in a metro, where space is a big constraint but then none of the 40 things which am gonna list is going to be easy for me...

1. THINGS TO DO BEFORE I TURN 40- LEARN TO PLAY GUITAR....

Image
My Dad used to play guitar and that too in the times of 70s when there were not even enough singers in India..

I got to know this quite early during my childhood when on a summer holiday trip to my homeland, his broken guitar was fished out by me on a recon trip..

Since then I have this ambition to learn to play guitar...And it got better since I hooked up with Josh and Vikas...

We spent about half year living together in Bombay and eventually most of the evenings ended in either Josh or Vikas on the Guitar and me being the "Lead Vocalist", but then I wanted to play the instrument also and always....

The scenario changed a bit after we started living separately and then Darryll became a partner in the crime and all three of us used to spend the better part of sunday singing and playing on guitar...

So the ambition is to learn how to play guitar and then one day 4 of us can have a jam, Josh;Vikas;Darryll and myself( this is not part of the list though)..

THE LIST OF "TO DO THINGS" ALL 40 OF THEM BEFORE I TURN FORTY...

The list which I am compiling is a random scheme of things.

All the "To Do" which I list here are at random and does not bear any significance to the order in which I want to accomplish those things..

All these 40 things are equally important to me ....

And the fact that I list them in this particular order is that I have still to decide on the list of all those 40 things....and all of them are so endearing to me..

And I want to accomplish all of them equally so badly....

Before I turn 40 ie.....

40 THINGS TO DO BEFORE I TURN FORTY.... :-)

Image
People say it right, unless you put it in writing, goals remain dreams and have a very low probability of getting materialised as they remain figments of imagination.

Every single day you imagine that you should do this and you should do that, and they just remain your fancies..

So thats why I have decided to put my dreams in writing, so that they become tangible and does not remain fancies.

For quite a long time I have been pondering to make a list of things which I will accomplish before I turn 40 and these dont obviously ac compass to my professional career only.

So when still have 9 years on hand I decided to make a list of 40 things which I shall complete before my 40th birthday.

That shall bring a new energy level and excitement in my life and remove the monotonous scheme of things to hope of freshness every day, I hope so and being written they will always make me run for them...

And this shall bring a new level of activity to my blog too as first I want to write the full list of 40 …

Sweet Home Alabama!!!

Image
Big wheels keep on turning
Carry me home to see my kin
Singing songs about the Southland
I miss Alabamy once again

And I think its a sin,
yes Well I heard mister Young sing about her Well,
I heard ole Neil put her down Well,
I hope Neil Young will remember
A Southern man don't need him around anyhow

Sweet home Alabama
Where the skies are so blue
Sweet Home Alabama Lord,
I'm coming home to you

In Birmingham they love the governor
Now we all did what we could do
Now Watergate does not bother me
Does your conscience bother you?
Tell the truth

Sweet home Alabama
Where the skies are so blue
Sweet Home Alabama
Lord, I'm coming home to you

Here I come Alabama
Now Muscle Shoals has got the Swampers
And they've been known to pick a song or two
Lord they get me off so much
They pick me up when I'm feeling blue
Now how about you?

Sweet home Alabama
Where the skies are so blue Sweet
Home Alabama Lord, I'm coming home to you
Sweet home Alabama Oh sweet home baby
Where the skies are so blue
