  • Yippeeeee I Won!!!!!!


    I guess this is how it feels to win an Oscar or a Filmfare for the very first timeย  8) ….the feeling of joy and ecstacy is unmatchable! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Oh btw, I’m referring to the Blog award I have received forย  “Theย  Bestย  Travelย  Post”ย  @ Theย  Avantย  Gardeย  Bloggiesย  Awards.

    Check out category 17 in the winners’ list here

    And my award-winning post here

    Finally, my baby made me proudย  ๐Ÿ™‚ย ย  …..and this couldn’t have been possible without the support of all my friends who voted for me…Thank you ppl…love you all!!! ๐Ÿ™‚
    I’ll be sporting my victory badge on my sidebar so that it inspires me to write even better posts. CHEERS! ๐Ÿ™‚


    My Award! Wheeeeeeee ๐Ÿ™‚


    If there’s any movie I’m looking forward to watching this year, it is GHAJINI…!! I have seen the original movie(s) in Tamil and Telugu, and also ‘Memento’, from which it has been inspired- but the Hindi movie promises to be different in its own way. Aamir Khan looks very impressive in his new look (what muscles man!!)…Asin is as cute as ever (My latest crush ๐Ÿ™‚ …if I were a few inches shorter, I would have imagined myself in this song below ๐Ÿ˜€ ) ….but the most striking feature of the movie is……..its MUSIC! ๐Ÿ™‚ ….although Harris Jayraj has done a great job in the southern versions of Ghajini, the flavour which A R Rahman brings in here is truly unmatchable.

    Here’s a trailer from Ghajini…

    And here is a song from the Tamil equivalent, featuring Surya and Asin….was one of my favourites for quite some time ๐Ÿ™‚

    And now, some responses from you…. please do vote ๐Ÿ˜›

    One More Tag :-)

    Megyaan had tagged me sometime back, and this was supposed to be my first tag…..but I guess I couldn’t have done this on a more auspicious day ๐Ÿ˜€

    So on your mark, get set, GO!

    1. If your lover betrayed you, what will your reaction be?

    I would sing “Tadap Tadap Ke Is Dil se aah nikalti rahi, mujhko sazaa di pyaar ki, aisa kya gunaah kiya…Toh lut gayehhhhhh, haan lut gaye… Toh lut gaye hum teri mohabbat mein ๐Ÿ˜ฆ ”

    2. If you can have a dream to come true, what would it be?

    To be on an isolated beach with a special someone – especially on a moon-lit night ( yea i know its very filmi ๐Ÿ˜› )….

    One more dream is to take my dad on a world tour…6 years back, my parents took me to Europe during the holidays….now I want to do the same ๐Ÿ™‚

    3. Whose butt would you like to kick?

    Hmmmm….there are many….Himesh Reshammiya tops the list I guess….

    4. What would you do with a billion dollars?

    Convert it to rupees.

    5. Will you fall in love with your best friend?

    Sure, as long as Kanthaa-ben is not around ๐Ÿ˜€

    6. Which is more blessed, loving someone or being loved by someone?

    Being loved by the one you love- I think that’s the best thing that can happen to a person…. just knowing that there is someone who adores you as much as you do brings in a lot more joy and colour to life ๐Ÿ™‚

    7. How long do you intend to wait for someone you really love?

    Till 12 a.m …I usually go to sleep after that! ๐Ÿ™‚

    But on a more serious note, my heart would tell me to wait forever, whereas my mind would tell me to move on……..

    8. If the person you secretly like is already attached, what would you do?

    I would make her tie me a rakhi so that I can still love her, although in a different way.

    9. If you like to act with someone, who will it be? Your gf/bf or an actress/actor?

    Most definitely my gf !ย  …and if my gf is also an actress, then nothing like it ( Teri Ore… Teri Ore… Teri Ore… Hai Rabba ๐Ÿ™‚ )

    10. What takes you down the fastest?

    The gravitational pull of the earth. ( If I can trust my memory, the value of acceleration due to gravity is 9.8 metres/second squared, which is quite a big number ๐Ÿ˜› )

    11. How would you see yourself in ten years time?

    Hmmmm… happy as I am today……recruiting many freshers from MSRIT to work in my company ๐Ÿ™‚

    12. Whatโ€™s your fear?

    Staying alone at home for long hours, although I am quite used to it by now.

    13. What kind of person do you think the person who tagged you is?

    Very energetic, very talkative! ๐Ÿ˜€

    14. Would you rather be single and rich or married but poor?

    Happily married but poor ๐Ÿ™‚

    15. Whatโ€™s the first thing you do when you wake up?

    Try to remember which song I was singing in my dream ๐Ÿ˜€

    16. Would you give all in a relationship?

    Totally. I think this is the second thing I fear- giving in more than required.

    17. If you fall in love with two people simultaneously, who would you pick?

    Pretty simple. The one who loves me too….and if both love me, then I’ll toss a coin! ๐Ÿ˜€

    18. Would you forgive and forget no matter how horrible a thing that special someone has done?

    If its really horrible, then I don’t think so.

    19. Do you prefer being single or having a relationship?

    I like doing new things. So after playing domestic matches for 21 years, I don’t mind making my debut in International matches now ๐Ÿ˜€

    List more people to tag:









    My first tag!

    Swat tagged me to come up with some of my quirks. So here I go, making my tag debut ๐Ÿ™‚

    1.)ย  I always tend to link things and events with cricket or with some ‘tech’ stuff i listen hear in class. So, most of the time you’ll find me getting off the mark with why some process is not making remote procedure calls to another process, or why one friend function is always bowling bouncers at me everyday, inspite of the pitch being conducive for batting ๐Ÿ˜€

    2.)ย  If I go to a new place at night, I can’t find my way to the same place during daytime (and vice versa)…good that I’m not a sailor or a pilot.

    3.)ย  Of late, I have become very moody. I remember a day when I cried for a long time due to something, and within seconds, I was back to normal! Dunno how it works, but hey, its one of my quirks (rhymes, doesn’t it?! So that is my next point ๐Ÿ˜› )

    4.)ย  Again, of late, I have been writing 4-liner poems which go to every single friend’s message inbox ( I don’t care if I’m bugging them or not, just want to keep showcasing my ‘literary talent’ ๐Ÿ˜€ )

    5.)ย  I am regularly irregular- don’t remember when was the last time I reached any place on time (maybe in kindergarten) …now in college, I always reach early for the second class.

    6.)ย  I can come up with some of the most innovative PJ’s…sometimes people actually feel like laughing at them! ๐Ÿ˜€ …hehe

    I would like to tag Sri , Ashwin , Bhavana and Hari.

    Festival Blues!

    I don’t know how or why, but everytime there is a big festival, something or the other goes wrong. On the day after Ugadi, I had a BIG misunderstanding with a very close friend, and that wasn’t resolved for months! Our 6th sem VTU results came exactly during Ganesh Chaturthi, to dampen what would otherwise have been a time to enjoyย  ๐Ÿ˜ฆ ย  I lost 200 bucks on the day of Janmashtami . Now after Dasshera, we have been bombarded by lab internals andย  theory internals and assignments!!…not to forget the weekly mock test and the frantic preparations for CAT (can’t believe only 38 days are left!!!!! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ )ย  – looks like that’ ll also meet the same fate as the previous sem results ๐Ÿ˜ ย  The next major festival is Diwali…and my birthday comes exactly during that time. I hope I’m spared of the festival blues atleast then ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Astro-Gyaan (Part 1)

    Astrology…this is one subject which has always intrigued me…..right from childhood, I used to be very amused by the fact that a change in planetary movements can change the course of our lives, just like how the gravitational pull of the moon causes tides on earth.

    Astrological signs represent 12 equal segments or divisions of the zodiac. The 12 zodiac signs, usually referred to as ‘sun signs’, are the most common tools that we use to understand our personalities and those of others. In fact, most people who want to know you must have asked you your zodiac sign within he first two meetings! ๐Ÿ˜€ This proves the popularity of the zodiac signs in our lives. The term zodiac stands for animals. Astrologically, it refers to the various patterns formed by the stars in the sky. Each of the 12 zodiac signs is said to have its own unique set of attributes, talents, strengths and weaknesses. Here, I’ll talk about the general characteristics of each sign.

    1000 hits! Yaaaay :)

    Phew! After 5 odd months on WordPress, finally reached the first big milestone ๐Ÿ™‚ …..and it couldn’t have come on a better day……it started off with the ‘extra-time’ which my favourite teacher gave us for a particular test ( I guess if he is not satisfied with this also, he’ll have penalty shootouts for us ๐Ÿ˜€ ) ….we all played UNO after that in his own class (man, what an awesome game! ๐Ÿ™‚ ) …..which resumed in lunch break with a bigger gang and 10 times the fun! ๐Ÿ™‚ย  Then came the blogging competition which was more like a training exercise for the juniors….after that, we all just sat outside the seminar hall and chatted for some time before I shifted base to the canteen with the girl gang of our class…..and there we went on and on for a long time, imitating and teasing each other ๐Ÿ˜€ ……hehe…..wish there are more such happy days in our last few months in college ๐Ÿ™‚

    Movies I watched during these holidays….
