Happy Birthday Gradpops :D

Facebook is a great connector, one takes it for granted but when you would sit and think of will hit you how amazing FB really is!!!
I am not going to rant on the awesomeness of FB...naah...I just want to appreciate its existence...few people have "time" to do that actually!!!
One would now think why this sudden acknowledgement and love for FB, well its Grandad's B'day today and he's away in Nagpur....the medium to wish him and send him his present.....



This was our little gift to him on his 78th b'day.

Happy 78th Dadu.

And like water 
And like air
You are to us

A smile 
Like a shower
In days of dark

A love
A warmth
Always the hug

Only answers
No questions
Ever the embrace

Happy Birthday!!

Love and Wishes- Everyone!!! :P :P :D

Of Long Legs and No leg space!!!

 17th December (On a flight to Guwahati) 

Wow look at her man!!! She’s such a good looker!! She goes on and on and on…with legs like that!!!! She would be reaching for the sky with those bamboo shoots of hers…wow…!!

In only a matter of seconds a girl is analyzed by those hungry eyes of every man born on this planet. It’s a fact of life and it sounds degrading….disgusting too…but well it’s just the way it is! Be it a tennis player or an actress or just a passerby you just can’t stop admiring their long legs!! It’s like they are always wearing stilts….
Anyway this is taking me away from what I want to write…so getting back to that….
For the past hour and half I have been sitting in this extremely uncomfortable passengers seat of Go Air with two extremely boisterous and irritating people for company. The only place that I can really vent my tension is on this writing pad that I have.
I read my opening paragraph again, I wonder why I began like that…I will let be…I see it generates the interest….  
Flights nowadays charge exorbitantly yet provide people with the least amount of leg space on a flight.  Only a few days back Mallya was all over the news protesting against the government’s wish to reduce prices on the tickets booked for flights. He mentioned a phrase that is popular nowadays “media sensationalization”.  He gave reasons of demand and supply to back his argument. All this is being done in an effort to undo some good that the gov’t is actually trying to do. But then it is his bread and butter or should I say cake and wine- this Kingfisher business….
I wish someone could tell him that with the exorbitant rates that these flights are planning to charge, their flights seem to be getting smaller...miracles never cease to happen isn’t it? More the money you get, the SMALLER your aircraft gets and well the quality of food is another story all together!
Kingfisher doesn’t pose such problems of leg space and food quality, they remain top class but one cannot say so about the other airlines…
Bullock carts in that sense were so much better, more spacious…those old times…
This for now will remain a blog/journal entry only…
Till anything happens in the distant future all I can do is stay cramped in that uncomfortable thing they call a passengers’ seat, get hit by extremely apologetic airhostesses moving around huge food trolleys because my leg was sticking out and CURSE under my breath for my long legs and no leg space!

Of Times Gone By...

Where have those times gone,
when i could spread that smile across on face without saying too much!
Where did it all go?
the twinkle of the eyes as you looked at me after many a day
seemed to have elapsed since we had last seen each other, even though it had been but a few hours?
I talk to you now like a master would to his servant and you with those quiet eyes listen dolefully, ready to obey every command I give.
You give a vibe given often by dead people.
What is it that died?
Have we sacrificed our love in the bigger scheme of things or has everything that we felt for each other come to an end?
Why has everything become so dark and distant between the two of us?

When will the magic return?
Will it return at all?
The smile you smiled, the look you gave me, staring into my eyes and right into my heart!

When will your head bow down to stifle a grin at some pathetic joke I cracked instead of being subservient to my commands.
Time has flowed below the bridge but  does that mean we have changed so much too?

When will you be the woman you once were?
When will your bent head and crystal blue eyes signify that you arent troubled but just glad that I am there.

A Prized Catch This....

I am thankful to this kind man for having thrown his net into the water just so that I could catch him in his act. I achieved two things:

1. I had always wanted to catch the actions of a fisherman in his net throwing act. I achieved it today!! Even though there was hardly any fish around.

2. I left behind a man who was happy and had a smile on his face, because I photographed him.

Believe me, there is nothing more satisfying to see.!!! :D

The One Man Army- Johnny Bravo

I used to totally love his cartoons. He deserves a spot on my blog. He's awesome.


Some of his quotes that are so totally unforgettable.....

"I am Johnny Bravo, the one-man army!"

"Wanna see me comb my hair, really fast?"

"Hey Foxy Mama, You smell kinda pretty. Wanna smell me? Hoohah!"

"Mister, I don't think you realize who you're talking to. I'm Johnny Bravo, the one-man army!""Man, I'm pretty."

Whoa, Mama!"

"If loving me is wrong, you don't wanna be right!"

(Looks in mirror)"Wait, who's that handsome guy?" (Dials phone) "Hello, 911 emergency? There's a handsome guy in my house" Oh, wait, cancel that. It's only me."
