Happy Birthday – 3 Aquarians

Left to Right: Snigs, Kreeti and Me at Pecos, Church Street, Bangalore ————–  They say sunsigns are all bull shit. But I think it has to be too much of a coincidence that it was this bunch of 3 intelligent, smart, whacky, eccentric and super sexy aquarians that has together done some of the greatest fun things in life, have had the craziest time together with love and hate so intricately interwoven and have been able to stick together for all these years. Year 1985 till date and still going strong. Today’s is Kreeti Bhakt’s Birthday…I have no clue why she … Continue reading Happy Birthday – 3 Aquarians

New Year

Time just flies by…first 15 days of the year already past and am yet to write about the new year trip I made. I took mom for a 3 day conducted tour arranged by the Karnataka State Tourism Development Corporation to Mysore, Ooty and Coonoor. I never thought of very highly for state conducted tours but when it’s just two people traveling, it’s not very economical to hire a cab. Surprisingly, the whole trip went great and I was pretty impressed by KSTDC services and arrangements. The Delux Non AC bus tickets costs you INR 1930 approx and covers 3 … Continue reading New Year

It rained today Man…

It was an awesome rain that delhi had today in the evening and its awlays a beautiful sight to see those shining blades of water falling on the concrete road and the car splashing by…the traffic obviously came to a halt all around and I waited almost an hour at the Jungpura stop for a 727 before I gave up, took an auto to CP and boarded the metro to Dwarka. But what a well spent hour it was. Last time I wrote about it, this time I clicked and captured. More Delhi rain pics here Continue reading It rained today Man…

Ryze Mixer

Glad I went ahead for the Ryze Mixer. It was fun meeting everybody. Am looking forward to more such meets. The drive back home was an amazing experience. The road all thorough had a terrible fog but was thickest on the new flyover connecting Dwarka and the Dhaula Kuan Crossing. The minuite I took this road I felt like I have come to a nowhere. I couldn’t even see the bonnet of my car. You won’t believe it untill you have seen it. It was blinding. Scary and exiting. I couldn’t help taking a couple of pics while driving. Wanted … Continue reading Ryze Mixer

28th November ’05

I went ahead all by myself to the concert. My first ever Jazz concert, John Primer and The Real Deal Blues Band. It was good. Can’t say if it was great or not because I don’t listen to a lot of Jazz and don’t understand it. Saw Harneet, and Mrs. and Mr. Deepan there. The world is small they say and if your areas of interest and subjects and places of hangouts is the same then the world becomes even smaller. I always knew this. Always knew I am gonna bump into Harneet at one such events. And I also knew, … Continue reading 28th November ’05
