Go Stevie Go...

Steven Gerrard, The Heart In Liverpool. Gerrard Is A Legend For All Football Suporters, The captain of Reds. Get well soon Stevie, Red Brigade needs you...

You'll never walk alone...

When you walk through a storm
Keep your chin up high
And don't be afraid of the dark.
At he end of the storm
Is a golden sky
And the sweet silver song of a lark.

Walk on through the wind,
Walk on through the rain,
Tho' your dreams be tossed and blown.
Walk on, walk on
With hope in your heart
And you'll never walk alone,
You'll never walk alone.

Go, Go, Go, Go.. Reds.. Go...

My fear...

Its very difficult to express yourself when there is a fear. And mostly they are bound to happen together only.

I always wonder, why I am not able to fully express how I feel, even to my loved ones. There can be two possibilities, first, I love them and do not want to hurt then. Second, I think I am not strong enough to face rejection. But there might be another reasons. I don't feel safe. I am afraid of being misunderstood. I fear of getting ignored. And whatever the reason is, it hurts. But what hurts the most it keeping it all to myself. But it is not easy to let things go, is it??

Don't Sweat the Small Stuff--and it's all small stuff...

This weekend I have been to my hometown. I left on thursday evening directly from office. I forgot to bring any book or novel to pass the time while travelling. But I can say that I was fortunate enough, One of my colleague passed on one audio book to me. "Don't Sweat the Small Stuff--and it's all small stuff" by Richard Carlson.

It provides thoughtful and practical advice for those of us who take life too seriously. His wit and wisdom leave no stone unturned, touching upon everything from friendship, sex, and marriage to children, aging, and stress.

I recommend all of you to go through this audio book. This can be downloaded from here.

सिर्फ़ तुम...

वो चंद लम्हे,
थे इतने हसीन...
अपनी किस्मत पर,
मुझे ना हुआ यकीन...

कौन जाने था वो ख्वाब,
या मेरे प्यार का जवाब...
तुम थे साथ मेरे,
बन कर मेरा आफताब...

हर पल कर रहे शरारत,
चेहरे पर लिए हुए नज़ाकत...
हमेशा करना फिर मेरी हिफ़ाज़त,
और मान जाना हर बात...

इतना ही बस माँगू मै,
खुदा दे दे मुझे,
उस हसीन परी का साथ,
जिसे चाहूँ मै दिन रात...

अज्ज दिन चढ़ेया,तेरे रंग वरगा...

Beautiful song from Love Aaj Kal...

अज्ज दिन चढ़ेया,तेरे रंग वरगा
अज्ज दिन चढ़ेया,तेरे रंग वरगा

फूल सा है खिला आज दिन,रब्बा मेरे दिन यह ना ढले,
वो जो मुझे ख्वाब में मिले,उसे तू लगा दे अब गले
तेनू दिल दा वास्ता

रब्बा आया दर दे यार दे,सारा जहाँ छोड़ छाड़ के
मेरे सपने सँवार दे,तेंनु दिल दा वास्ता

अज्ज दिन चढ़ेया,तेरे रंग वरगा

बक्शा गुनाहों को, सुन के दुआऑं को
रब्बा प्यार है, तूने सब को ही दे दिया
मेरी भी आहों को, सुन ले दुआऑ को
मुझको वो दिला, मैंने जिसको है दिल दिया

आस वो, प्यास वो, उसको दे इतना बता
वो जो मुझे देख के हंसे, पाना चाहूँ रात दिन जिसे
रब्बा मेरे नाम कर उसे, तेनू दिल दा

अज्ज दिन चढ़ेया,तेरे रंग वरगा

मांगा जो मेरा है, जाता क्या तेरा है
मैंने कौन सी तुझसे जन्नत मांग ली
कैसा खुदा है तू, बस नाम का है तू
रब्बा जो तेरी, इतनी सी भी ना चली

चाहिये जो मुझे कर दे तू मुझको अता
जीती रहे सल्तनत तेरी, जीती रहे आशिकी मेरी
दे दे मुझे ज़िन्दगी मेरी, तेनू दिल दा वास्ता

रब्बा मेरे दिन ये ना ढले, वो जो मुझे ख्वाब में मिले
उसे तू लगा दे अब गले, तेनू दिल दा वास्ता
रब्बा आया दर पे यार के, सारा जहान छोड़ छाड़ के
मेरे सपने
सँवार दे, तेनु दिल दा वास्ता

kis qadar jald badal jaate hain insaan jaana

ab ke tajdeed-e-wafa ka nahi imkaan jaana
yaad kya tujhko dilaayein tera paimaan jaana

[tajdeed-e-wafa=renewal of faith; imkaan=possibility; paimaan=oath]

yunhi mausam ki adaa dekh ke yaad aaya
kis qadar jald badal jaate hain insaan jaana

dil ye kehta hai ki shayad ho fasurdaa tu bhi
dil ki kya baat karein dil to hai naadaan jaana


hosh aaya to sabhi khwaab the reza reza
jaise udte hue auraaq-e-pareshaan jaana

[reza=piece; auraaq-e-pareshaan=torn pages]

Tune Jo Na Kaha..

New song from movie NEWYORK... Dedicated to You... No video this time so that you can read the lyrics carefully.. :-)

hmm hmm.. hmm hmm
hmm hmm.. hmm hmm
tune jo na kaha
main wo sunta raha
khaamkha bewajah
khwaab bunta raha

hmm hmm.. hmm hmm
hmm hmm.. hmm hmm
tune jo na kaha
main wo sunta raha
khaamkha bewajah
khwaab bunta raha

jaane kis ki hamein
lag gayi hai nazar
is shehar mein na
apna thikana raha

door chaahat se main
apni chalta raha
khaamkha bewajah
khwaab bunta raha

gar wo pehle se hai zyaada
khud se phir ye kiya vaada
khamosh nazrein
rahe be zubaan
hmm hmm.. hmm hmm

baaton mein pehle si baatein hai
bolo to lab thartharate hai
raaz ye dil ka
na ho bayaan
ho gaya ke asar
koi hum pe nahi
hum safar mein to hai
humsafar hai nahi

door jaata raha
paas aata raha
khaamkha bewajah
khwaab bunta raha
hmm hmm.. hmm hmm

aaya wo phir nazar aise
baat chidne lagi phir se
aankho mein chubhta
kal ka dhuan
hmm hmm.. hmm hmm

haal tera na hum sa hai
kis khushi mein
kyun ghum sa hi
basne laga kyun
phir wo jahan

wo jahan door
jisse gaye the nikal
phir se yaadon ne
kar di hai jaise pehal

lamha beeta hua
dil dhukhaata raha
khaamkha bewajah
khwaab bunta raha

tune jo na kaha
main wo sunta raha
khaamkha bewajah
khwaab bunta raha

jaane kis ki humein
lag gayi hai nazar
is shehar mein na
apna thikana raha

door chaahat se main
apni chalta raha
bujh gayi aag thi
daag jalta raha

Take Me To Love...

Nice Song from movie Bride and Prejudice.

Show me the way
Take me to love
Things only heard now I want to feel
My soul caressed by silken breeze
Whisper secrets to listening trees
Show me that world
Take me to love
Show me the way
Take me to love
Come out, blue moon
I need a friend soon
To share what I feel, it's so rare
Shine down on me so I can see
The silver street that leads me to the place I want to be

A wish a dream
Magic go it does seem
Has time stood still just for me
It's saying that we're meant to be together forever one and other's destinys

Show me the way
Take me to love
Things only heard now I wanna see
Sun sets with glowing flowers
Nights live with story shows
Show them that world
Take me to love
Show me the way
Take me to love

Could we fly away
Lie on a cloud all day
Hold hands and get kissed by the sun
Shall we swim out deep
Watch dolphins leap
Like my heart would if you said I was the only one
Show me the way
Take me to love
Things only heard now I wanna be
Running through fields as the bird flies
Lost in the twilight of your eyes
Show me that world
Take me to love

Show them the way
Take them to love
Things only heard now they want to be
Two beings with one beating heart
For their whole lives not to part
Show them the way
Take them to love
La-la la-la la la-la-la
Show them the way
Take them to love la
La la
yeah yeah yeahhhh ooooooohhhhhhhhhhh

I just called to say I love you

Nice song from Stevie Wonder - I just called to say I love you..

No New Year's Day to celebrate
No chocolate covered candy hearts to give away
No first of spring
No song to sing
In fact here's just another ordinary day

No April rain
No flowers bloom
No wedding Saturday within the month of June
But what it is, is something true
Made up of these three words that I must say to you

I just called to say I love you
I just called to say how much I care
I just called to say I love you
And I mean it from the bottom of my heart

No summer's high
No warm July
No harvest moon to light one tender August night
No autumn breeze
No falling leaves
Not even time for birds to fly to southern skies

No Libra sun
No Halloween
No giving thanks to all the Christmas joy you bring
But what it is, though old so new
To fill your heart like no three words could ever do

I just called to say I love you
I just called to say how much I care, I do
I just called to say I love you
And I mean it from the bottom of my heart

I just called to say I love you
I just called to say how much I care, I do
I just called to say I love you
And I mean it from the bottom of my heart, of my heart,
of my heart

I just called to say I love you
I just called to say how much I care, I do
I just called to say I love you
And I mean it from the bottom of my heart, of my heart,
baby of my heart

I Am Blank...

Rann ...

The trailer of Ramgopal Verma's Rann shows the remix of Indian National Anthem. I think lot of people will criticize it but I think it reflects the mentality of current Indian citizen.

From the Heart...

Song lyrics from movie Notting Hill... Truly from the heart...

I know you've heard these words a hundred other times before
And you've been hurt and so your heart has chose to close the door
Love brook your heart and brought you lies
Look in my eyes
You'll see a love that's deep and true
Tender and strong and all for you
You can trust this love
Honest, that's the honest truth

From the heart
I'm giving you everything, everything
From the heart
I promise you that I'll be there
I'll be there to love you
From the soul
I'm showing you all I feel, all I feel is
From the heart, from the heart

I will protect you and respect you and be all you need
And when you reach for love you'll only need to reach for me
These arms will never let you down
They're staying around
I'll walk with you through every storm
I'll keep you safe, I'll keep you warm
And you'll have no doubt
You're the one I'm living for

Way to success...

Feeling quite relaxed today. Last few days (or weeks) were very much frustrating and irritating for me as well as someone else. I feel like hell when I can see other people in so much pain and agony. I want to help them, I can stretch myself to any level to accomplish their tasks, their dreams, But sometimes I am caught in condition when I am unable to do anything. Its like the situation when you are willing to do something but you don't have means to go for it. Same type of phase I was going through. I can feel their pain, still I can't do anything to subdue it. I could have done only one thing just give them mental support (I know I faltered at some point, but that was my low dip). Today when I see their joyful face, I can feel relaxed. But I can only say its only their efforts and hardship that made them to reach at this destination in life. And I won't understand it any point of time who just get the Success based on the luck and very less struggle.

Full Moon Night...

In my recent trip to Guna, I was travelling in car and from the windshield of my car I saw this scene, which got pasted in my memory and I thought to draw it. After giving the shape to my imagination, I felt there are lots of details missing, So I tried my computer skills to do that. Here are both the versions of my latest sketch.

Meri Hasi..

Ham to unme se hai jo aapki har bat par has de ..
Aap kuch bolo to has de..
Aap haso to sath dene k liye has de..
Na haso to aapko hasane k liye has de..
Sath chalo to apni kismat par has de..
Door raho to dard chhupane k liye has de..
Aur is hasi hasi k khel me...
Dusro ko behlaane main has de...

You're Beautiful - James Blunt

My life is brilliant.

My life is brilliant.
My love is pure.
I saw an angel.
Of that I'm sure.
She smiled me on the subway.
She was with another man.
But I won't lose no sleep on that,
'Cause I've got a plan.

You're beautiful, You're beautiful,
You're beautiful, it's true.
I saw your face in a crowded place,
And I don't know what to do,
'Cause I'll never be with you.

Yes, she caught my eye,
As we walked on by.
She could see from my face that I was,
Fucking high,
And I don't think that I'll see her again,
But we shared a moment that will last till the end.

You're beautiful, You're beautiful,
You're beautiful, it's true,
I saw your face in a crowded place,
And I don't know what to do,
'Cause I'll never be with you.

You're beautiful. You're beautiful.
You're beautiful, it's true.
There must be an angel with a smile on her face,
When she thought up that I should be with you.
But it's time to face the truth,
I will never be with you.

Most Cherishing Moment...

One of my fellow blogger tagged me to write about the most cherishing moment of my life. I searched through my life span and I found out that there are lots of cherishing moments, selecting MOST cherishing one was a bit difficult. But I got one moment that still thrills me with so much positive vibes and which always remains close to my heart. It obviously stand on the top of all others.
This moment occured after I got selected in Riverstone Networks, with the highest paid package to a graduate student in the state of MP through placement. After my this achievement, one of my family member hugged me and gently kissed on my forehead and said, "I am proud of you." These few words and the actions remain stamped in my mind and heart and will do forever. Even now whenever I think about that moment I feel somewhat special, I hope to carry on this legacy and make her proud in future as well.

Reliving old memories...

I have gone to Ujjain this long weekend, In the course of my journey I also visited Guna, my nanihal, after long time. It was a nice trip. After coming back to Ujjain I spent my 2 days meeting my old school and college pals. In my return journey I was accompanied by two of my schoolmates. It is always nice to talk about those moments that were spent with fun and laughter. Those were the days when we were free from the daily humdrum of life and we were most pure souls. The things we used to do are now source of enjoyment and smile on face. This discussion did not stop at that point only. After I returned to Mumbai, I was chatting with one of my other old pal and we discussed lots and lots of odd things, which we would not have discussed usually. And we both were laughing at our places and our colleagues came to ask "Is everything fine?" ;-). I really enjoyed all these days reliving old memories.

The Omens...

I promised to write the review for "Go Kiss the World", but eventually landed up in writing about "The Alchemist". Why so? Some of the recent events triggered this. We get lots of Omens in our life but we fail to read it. The God is fair enough with all of us to provide evidences in life for choosing between right and wrong. Its up-to our comprehension that how much we gain from it. Some people who gather this habit of analyzing the facts and acting based on the outcome are those who really find success and remain happy. I personally feel what happens in your day to day life has its own meaning, Sometimes you are stopped from doing something, sometimes pushed to do unwanted things. Its all part of play called life. What matters most is that you have to learn from these events for the future.

Dreams on fire...

Nice song from Slumdog Millionare

You are my waking dream
You're all thats real to me
You are the magic in the world i see

You are in the prayer i saying
You are in my two my names

You are the faith that make me belive
Dreams on fire
Higher n higher

Pasion burning
Ride on the path
Once for forever yours
In me
All your heart
Dreams on fire
Higher n higher

You are my ocean rage
You are my thought each day
you are the laughter from childhood games
You are things further down
You are where i belong

You are make me feel in every songs

Dreams on fire
Higher n higher
Pasion burning
Ride on the path
Once for forever yours
In me
All your heart
Dreams on fire
Higher n higher

Life's Personal Angels...

I was reading "Go Kiss the world" by Subroto Bagchi, In the end he summarized his life by providing his Life's Personal Angels. I am quoting some of them, One more post will be there on the same book with different learning.

Paulo Coelho's The Alchemist says "when the message arrives it is difficult to understand the context, far less its true meaning."

"When people make a choice, they also choose the consequences."

"Never think of retiring, When you get older, begin to reduce work. Work less, But do not give up work. We do not realize how lucky we are to be able to get up in the morning and go some place where work awaits us."

"Open your mind before you open your mouth."

In the journey called life, as we are engulfed in everyday grind, chasing our successes and trying to survive the failures, we constantly look back for golden formula. There is, in reality, no golden formula, just a set of lessons. Some are delivered to us by people whom we come in casual contact with, and as time goes by, we begin to understand that each one of us has personal angels - the people who live in our midst.

Kuch Kam Roshan...

Phool Mehke Nahi Kuch Gumsum Se Hai
Jaise Ruthe Hue Kuch Ye Tum Se Hai
Phool Mehke Nahi Kuch Gumsum Se Hai
Jaise Ruthe Hue Kuch Ye Tum Se Hai

Khooshbue Dhal Gayi Saath Tum Ab Jo Nahi
Kuch Kam Roshan Hain Roshni
Kuch Kam Geeli Hain Baarishein
Kuch Kam Lehrati Hai Hawaa
Kuch Kam Hai Dil Mein Khwaahishein
Tham Sa Gaya Hai Ye Waqt Aise Tere Liye Hi Thehra Ho Jaise

Its Century Mark...

Its my 100th blog post... So It has to be something different and special... Here it is....

मस्ती में मैं घूम रहा,
जीवन सुरभित आज लगे...
खुशी में मैं झूम रहा,
हर सुर तरंगित साज़ लगे...
ज़िंदगी के हर एक पल में,
मन मेरा झंकार उठे...
कहता है ये दिल मेरा,
ऐसे अवसर पर क्यों ना
हम तुम नाच उठे...

~~द्वारा - सौरभ बजाज ~~

Happiness to others...

Read my header line, I want to give happiness to others. Someone asked me, What is better - Giving happiness to other by representing yourself as a fool or giving happiness to others by giving them the support even when you know you yourself are lacking the support. I feel both ways its best if you are doing it for someone whom you want to see happy forever.

Trade of emotions...

If ever the pleasure of one has to be bought by the pain of the other, there better be no trade at all. A trade by which one gains and other loses is a fraud.

Rehna Tu...

I am falling in love with this song more and more when I hear this and I am living it...

Rehna Tu
Hai Jaisa TU
Thoda sa dard tu
Thoda Sukun

Rehna Tu
Hai Jaisa TU
Dheema Dheema jhonka
Ya phir junoon
Thoda sa reshma
Tu humdam
Thoda sa khurdura
Kabhi daud jaye
Ya lad jaye
Ya khushboo se bhara

Tujhe badalna na chahoon
Rati bhar bhi sanam
Bina sajawat milawat
Na jyaada na hi kaam

Tuhje chaahon jaisa hai tu
Mujhe teree barish mein beegna hai ghuljana hai
Tujhe chaahon jaisa hai tu
Mujhe tere lapat mein jalna rakh ho jana hai

Tu zakham de agar
Marham bhi aakar tu lagaaye

Zakham mein bhi mujhko pyaar aaye

Dariya o dariya
Doopne de mujhe dariya
Doopne de mujhe dariya

Rehna Tu
Hai Jaisa TU
Thoda sa dard tu
Thoda Sukun

Rehna Tu
Hai Jaisa TU
Dheema Dheema jhonka
Ya phir junoon

Haath tham chalna hi
To dono ke daye haath sang kaise
Haath tham chalna hi
To dono ke daye haath sang kaise

Ek daaya hoga ek baaiya hoga
Tham le haath yeh thaam le
Chalna hai sang tham le

Rehna Tu
Hai Jaisa TU
Thoda sa dard tu
Thoda Sukun

Rehna Tu
Hai Jaisa TU
Dheema Dheema jhonka
Ya phir junoon

Thoda sa reshma
Tu humdam
Thoda sa khurdura
Kabhi daud jaye
Ya lad jaye
Ya khushboo se bhara

Tujhe badalna na chahoon
Rati bhar bhi sanam
Bina sajawat milawat
Na jyaada na hi kaam

Tuhje chaahon jaisa hai tu
Mujhe teri barish mein beegna hai ghuljana hai
Tujhe chaahon jaisa hai tu
Mujhe teri lapat mein jalna rakh ho jana hai

Ways of living...

Acchi Zindagi Guzarne ke 2 tarike hai,

Jo pasand hai use hasil kar lo

Ya fir

Jo hasil hai use pasand kar lo...

My priority in life will always be with the first option...

Thinking Mantra...

Francisco to Hank,

Any refusal to recognize reality, for any reason whatever, has disastrous consequences. There are no evil thoughts except one: Don't ignore your own desires. Don't sacrifice them. Examine their cause. There is a limit to how much you should have to bear.

Also said by Rene Descartes: I think; therefore I am.

So I feel thinking is that part of human behavior which motivates them for the success in future or at-least give them path for it.

Wo Chhote Chhote Sawal...

Kal raat radio sunte samay anchor ne ye bat kahi, aur mere blog par iska aana jaruri ho gaya tha...
Zindagi ke chhote chhote sawalo ke jawab hame nahi milte hai, Ye tabhi milte hai jab unke milne ka maksad pura ho, isliye unke bare me soch kar pareshan nahi hona. Par haan, unhe bilkul darkinaar bhi nahi karna, nahi to hum jeevan me aur samajhdar, aur anubhavi nahi ho payenge...

I Like it....

Love - the best feeling...

"All my life I had the option of choosing love or hate. I chose love so here I am." - A R Rahman.

Love is truly a feeling that bonds two different personalities. A true love can lead you life to the level which is impossible otherwise. You can find love in many forms, many a times untold love will be there for you, which you can see, can feel but dont want to acknowledge. The most prominent of these love is your family's, You will find them shouting at you, being angry with you, but you also know that at any point of time, they are the biggest strength and support or you. Their love can be seen in the moments even when they are not talking to you. The love should be felt not to be forced. In companionship the love is a binding force. For some it is so obvious that they dont have to exercise much but sometimes it is untold and has to be felt. I feel love should be spread all over the world to bring it to the peace. I remember one hindi song from Badhai ho Badhai:

Koshish To Koyi Karke Dekhe
Sapne Sachche Bhi Hote Hai
Duniya Koyi Itni Buri Nahin
Yahan Log Achche Bhi Hote Hai
Bechain Yeh Karaar Hai To Sab Kuch Hai
Yeh Karaar Nahin To Kuch Bhi Nahin
Teri Zindagi Mein Pyaar Hai To Sab Kuch Hai
Jo Pyaar Nahin To Kuch Bhi Nahin
Pyaar Pyaar Pyaar Baatate Chalo Pyaar
Pyaar Pyaar Pyaar Baatate Chalo Pyaar

Random Thoughts...

Last few days I have been thinking about my career, Yeah I know I have recently changed my job, which is also very good and promising. Then what is that thing which is troubling me. The insecurity of our profession? The alarming fear like case of Satyam? or something else? I don't know. I did lot of brainstorming and I am still far away from the conclusion. In words of my dear friend "I got that much of intelligence that I am not able to keep it concentrated on a single work." Even I feel sometimes that I have not done justice with myself, I could have done more better. But bygones are bygones.
Also in last few days I have become somewhat irritating and angry person. I am losing my cool & calm composure [may be the mumbai heat is the culprit ;-) ].
My frequency of writing blogs reduced after coming to Mumbai, I thought its because I don't have net connection at home, which is not allowing me to do it so. But No, the reason seems to be something else. In last few weeks I have been busy with lot of things, one of them being my favourite pastime [;-)], My Inner thoughts. I have habit of wandering in my thinking. I assume presume so many things that even at sometimes I get confused why this? why that? Sometimes I start thinking way apart from my original thought Then I do a funny thing of back traversing my thoughts how I reached here [:P]. While writing this stuff I started thinking that how many people read it and think it is writen based on them [;-)]. Yes I am confused with this thing also, I am holding different images for different people way different from my original nature. I like to be what I am, a straight-forward person, with little little milestones in life. No big ambitions. Taking everyone in my own stride (over powering in words of other) to serve the basic course of friendship and relationship, I know I am being hated for this.

After writing so many things I dont know what I am trying to do, the thoughts are so much jumbled, those are trying to come out but not able to give them words or shape.
Apologize to all my visitors for this junk post.

Know about yourself...

For long time, I was trying to find about myself. I always thought that who can know me better than myself. But I was wrong, there is one lady, Linda Goodman, who knows me better than me and I can bet that it will be applicable for you also. So in order to know about yourself please go through this link LINDA GOODMAN'S SUN SIGNS

My Sixth Sense...

I don't know why I am writing this, but yes I am forced to pen it down. I always tell to people about my intuitions and sixth sense. Some of them believe, some don't. After my decision to move on, I got lot of criticism why to take risk at this point of time and blah blah. I got very strong feel of global meltdown affecting me (Refer to my previous post, Struggle of Life) and now it seems to be true as a matter of fact when I recently heard that my previous company has announced 0% global hike this year. Even people are not getting rated there. It makes me feel good about MY decision (although there were certain other reasons also).

I don't know whether it is relevant here or not. Its upto others whether they think me a fool or a mad, but I strongly believe in my intuitions and I know most of them come true. Only the rare ones are those which I wanted very much to come true, but those were not pure intuitions they were desires (Refer to my previous post, Human Behavior).

I feared the

I realized that it's not an end, but a


I feared my destiny, Until
I realized that I had the

Transition from Bangalore to Mumbai...

Blogging down my thoughts after a long, was busy in shifting from bangalore to mumbai, searching accomodation, adjusting in new office environment, new surroundings. The period was though hectic but very nice one. I am really enjoying to be in Mumbai - 'The city of dreams'. People say its very fast life in Mumbai but I don't find much difference from Bangalore. Its like another Metro city, You just have to adjust yourself with the changing world.
Apart from that my office environment is very cool, All the colleagues are so enthusiastic not only for working but also for having fun and enjoying good times. In the first week of joining itself, I was part of two different parties. Its the best part of being in a small firm, your interaction with other people is very great and also the visibility to management (if wanna know about professional front).
I have come here with lot of dreams and ambitions, I will try my best to achieve those. For the people who know my new year resolution, Its going on but will take some time to be fully completed. Anyway its only the first month of the year, So I have lot of time to complete it.. :-)

Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na ...

Jaane Tu Meri Kya Hai, Jaane Main Tera Kya Tha
Saath Tere Har Pal, Saath Har Lamha Tha..
Jaane Kaisi Kasak Hai, Jaane Kaisi Tadap Hai
Kyun Ye Aakhe Nam Hai, Jaane Kaisaa.. Gham Hai..
Hai Dosti Humko Yakin To, Dosti Aur Kuch Bhi Nahi Tha
Par Kaise Tujh Ko Baate, Kyun Chubtay Hai Pairo Mine Kaate

Jaana Dil Jaana, Kaise Maine Na Jana
Ke Pyaar Yehi Hai, Ye Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na
Jaana Dil Jaana, Kaise Tune Na Jana
Ke Pyaar To Hai,Ye Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na
Jaane Tu Meri Kya Hai, Jaane Main Tera Kya Tha
Saath Tere Har Pal, Saath Har Lamha Tha..

Kyun Aise Chubti Hai Tujhse Doori, Kyun Laguti Hai Zindegi Youn Aadhuri
Chuwa Kisi Ne Tujhu Ko To Laga Ke, Dil Main Kisi Ne Jaise Aag Laga Ke...
Duniya Jalaa di Hai.. Meri

Jaane Tu Meri Kya Hai, Jaane Main Tera Kya Tha
Saath Tere Har Pal, Saath Har Lamha Tha..
Jaane Kaisi Kasak Hai, Jaane Kaisi Tadap Hai
Kyun Ye Aakhe Nam Hai, Jaane Kaisaa.. Gham Hai..

Jaana Dil Jaana, Kaise Maine Na Jana
Ke Pyaar Yehi Hai, Ye Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na..
Jaana Dil Jaana, Kaise Tune Na Jana
Ke Pyaar To Hai, Ye Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na

Poem for me ...

A poem written for me...

Ek bholi si surat he,
Ek bhola sa man he,
Koi dikhawa koi chalawa nahi he,
Seedhi si boli he,
Seedhi har baat he,
Chehare pe hasi he,
Ankhon me sachai,
Par iske peeche ek gehra dard he,
Jise dil ke ek kone me chupane ki koshish he,
Khud ko badalane ki koshish he,
Par us dard ke sath aage badane ki himmat he,
Sari duniyadari,
sab dekhawo se dur he,
Apni duniya me mashgul he,
Khud ki bas ek choti si duniya he,
Jisme bas pyar aur dosti he,
Koi bada sapna ya duniya ko jeetne ki chahat nahi he,
Bas pyar bantate chalne ki khwahish he,
Sabko khushiyan dekar apna dard kam karne ki koshish he,
Par nahi jante ye ki sabki inke dard ko mitane ki koshish he,
inhe khush dekhane ki khwahish he.
