Sayonara 2006

So long farewell...its time to say goodbye.It just feels like it was the beginning of 2006. And now the yearly journey has come to an end.Like other years,'06 too provided a roller coaster ride,just like the pathway of life's travel.Encounters with good and bad experiences have proved to be lessons done as a diploma course. This enables us to possess a greater degree of strength,courage and confidence which are needed to face the tougher examinations that are just around the corner.

Looking back from the cold winter days of January through the sunny days of March to the scorching heat of May-June,the monsoons in July- August and back to the chilly month of December,seems like glancing through our childhood photo albums to our present day pictures.A year which seems like just 365 days.Yet, the numerous events and changes equalizes this period,close to a unique era of its own.

Walking down the memory lane brings back certain instances, that can be viewed with a happy note and othe…

Brawn khan

Today is Salman khan's b'day.And he turns 42.

Lets wish this "saajan" a gr8 b'day and a year ahead. Inspite of all the flaks hes gotten into he has never made his fans ask"hum aapke hain koun".
His whole family and the film industry has stood by him saying"hum saath saath hai". A style icon who has proved the fact of"andaz apna apna".There can never be another "judwaa".

Yes his million link ups with various pretty faces have made his motto "pyar kiya to darna kya" quite clear. His hits and misses have never affected his saleability "kyonki", salman,hum "tumko na bhool paayenge".

Hes amazing at his romantic roles which never makes me feel "maine pyar kyon kiya" and its time to salute to his love struck roles saying"salaam-e-ishq"! Heres to sallu miya whos been one of my fav actors since his "maine pyar kiya" days.Wishing him a gr8 b'day.!!!!

Cheers to the brawn khan…

Jingle all the way

Candles with their colourful glow
Prayers said with heads in bow
Santa coming with a hoard of gifts
Child like enthusiasm soars and lifts'
A fairy on top of the christmas tree
Or a patridge on a pear tree.

A toast to the beloved with wine
where the kith n kit sit and dine
Feasting on delicious pies and cake
Made with a hard effort bake.

Its christmas time
A moment to rise and chime
With Reindeers on a continuous play
And the mistletoe n bells in a gentle sway
It is time to jingle all the way.

Investing in a Buffet

Warren Buffet was the first man to introduce the concept of "value investing".Known as one of the richest men in the world can get a glimpse of his life in the below write up which I received via email.

Very interesting and overwhelming.Brings to light the down to earth attitude of this starry personality.Couldn't help admiring his point about investing in ourselves to get the best rate of return.

Here's to the Investment Mentor.
There was a one hour interview on CNBC with Warren Buffet, the second richest man who has donated $31 billion to charity. Here are some very interesting aspects of his life:
1 He bought his first share at age 11 and he now regrets that he started too late!
2 He bought a small farm at age 14 with savings from delivering newspapers.
3 He still lives in the same small 3 bedroom house in mid-town Omaha, that he bought after he got married 50 years ago. He says that he has everything he needs in that house. His house does not have a wall or…

Kabul Express-A never ending journey

Ravines,deserts,barrenlands,rifles,tankers and soldiers.

Welcome to the journey of Kabul express.A fast paced travel which takes one through the experiences and underlying emotions of two Indian journalists along with three other co-passengers, leaves one gripping till the end.

This film starts with an introduction of the the country which was closed to the world for 6 years until an occurrence of a certain mishap.Several reporters were known to visit this mysterious land,thirsty for a story that would quench the curious minds of the world.

Suhel Khan(John Abraham) and Jai Kapoor(Arshad Warsi )play the lead as journalists from India who risk their lives to cover a story that would leave the nation spellbound.Little did they know that life would never be the same again after this road less travelled.As they seat themselves on a tanker,eyes and ears are wide open in eagerness to get a glimpse of the much hyped "Talib".Managing to attract a lot of attention,they stumble upon Jessi…

Future in our hands

Received this via email. Got me thinking about those sad, ignorant people who are under the false impression of housewife or a mom being jobless. The irony here is that no job can be that of a busier one esp. when one is blessed being a mom of one or many. Next time we are asked to fill up such an occupational column, we should probably think of defining the word “mom” or homemaker in an appropriate manner. The write-up below, gives an excellent example of such an instance.

A woman, renewing her driver's license at the County Clerk's office was asked by the woman recorder to state her occupation. She hesitated, uncertain how to classify herself. "What I mean is," explained the recorder, "do you have a job or are you just a......?" "Of course I have a job," snapped the woman.

"I'm a Mom."

"We don't list 'Mom' as an occupation, 'housewife' covers it," said the recorder emphatically. I forgot all about her sto…

A stingy tale(tail)

I came across this tale which is capable of leaving a trail.

A scorpion was trying to cross the river after completing the task of collecting food for her children. As she was debating on how to get to the other side, she incidentally met this jackal who happened to wander by the river side. Seeing her difficulty, the jackal stopped by and offered a ride on his back while he swam across the river. But it was on one condition that the scorpion wouldn’t sting the jackal while cruising.

However, halfway through the journey, the promise was broken as the poisonous sting of the scorpion pierced the jackal to the jaws of death. On questioning this venomous act, the scorpion replied saying” It is my nature to sting. I can’t help it. But why did you help me in spite of knowing my nature?” For which the Jackal replied” It is my nature to help. By stinging me you have destroyed not only me, but also yourself and in the process deprived your children from a healthy living."

K...K....K....K....Kaun banega crorepathi

It seems like one mosquito has taken over the B(ee).

Yes,flashing all over the entertainment quarters of the leading news channel is not only the restart of the quizzical programme of Kaun banega crorepathi,but also the replacement by the so called Bollywood Badshah called Shahrukh Khan.

The style and sophistication with with Amitabh Bachchan conducted this brain storming show,has definitely left a trademark of the words,"Sure" ,"confident","lock kar diya jaaye."

A friendly,warm smile of the Big B was just enough to put the nervous participants at ease.

Will SRK do the same?Time will tell.But at present,it seems like a bad replacement.Though a lot of talk is taking place about him being the youth icon which will generate waves and attract a lot more contemporary viewers.

All I can say is Srk will go K....k...k...kaun banega crorepathi.
