Power Play :-)

This post is a dedication to all Badminton lovers. I happened to play the game this evening aftr so many years. Once u start playing the game, you get addicted ! It is always a good exercise. I started playing the game when I was strong enough to swing the rackets ie during my high school days. we had a good team around and we used to take turns and play singles as well as doubles accordingly, though the game we play is not the real one.

Have heard some refer to the sport as a pointless chase of cork and feather. But it is a gr8 sport that requires gr8 endurance, vigorus cardio motion, fast pace, strategic play, power, finesse, and technique. On top of that, i got a gr8 neighbour who shares the same interest with me. How can u not love it ? It is really a fun sport !!!!

Win-Win Scenario !

Striking a deal is not an easy job, but for a smart marketing personnel it's not a tough job @ all. Am talking about closing a major corporate deal today. wow !! Not bad, not bad at all ! In the process am learning effective negotiation strategies and influence tactics for every business situation from regular work enviornments to complex deal negotiations.

Yawn.... a boring day :-)

To my bad luck all the afternoon appointments got cancelled due to various reasons and here am sitting idle at my workplace listening to the rythm of rain outside. Have never felt so boring since I started working here. Ouch ! Thats in response to the huge thunder that just hit the earth. Anyways thanx to the boring day as I could atleast peep into my blog and drop in a line or two after so long. Friends, sorry for the long silence, it was not intentional. It is just that I got busy with work and home. Sorry again !

Oh rain, pls don't go away...You just fell on me and set the writer in me free.
Never knew rain can be so enlightening
The heavy down pour hits not the earth, the heart instead
Made me feel better and rejuvenated
And so rain, thank you for blessing my soul !!!!!

Overall I guess I am glad to have had such a boring day, so tht I cud bore you guys with my writing :-)

Catch the i...............

Too much to say, too much to talk abt, think abt and write too. To blog it all ….but then again I’m human and I’m afraid of being judged.

It’s really late ….except the whirrin of my pc, there is not a sound to be heard. I need to get up early to take my driving lessons. Inspite of owning a driving licence for a very long time I ‘ve never put my hands on the wheel. Never knew tht driving is sucha a demanding task. Especially during the rush hours my body start to tense up and my patience begin to dwindle. But with time I sure shall enhance my drving skills. Drivers, pls drop in ur tips for this starter ;-)

Anyways am enjoying zooming around on my i10 with the favorite music on or a radio station with soothing music, like how shahrukh khan is seen on the i10 advt. As the saying goes ..Grr8 minds think alike ? or act alike ? heehe

So finally, wear the seat belt, wish u guys a happy ‘n safe driving !!!

U 'n Me

You and Me
Nothing but a minute particle in this unending vastness

Seeking the source of being…
Believed to be found once when the heart reaches purity

No dark clouds can ever cover the brightness of a sunshine
Neither the dark thoughts can hide the inner light

Forget all your thoughts and worries
And let the inner prayer be echoed

No more brooding over days of sadness and silent tears
Because they are just a passing phase.

But we should hold on to the truth within
To be blessed with strength that lasts forever.

Continue the search until you reach your destination.
Thus finding ourselves
Finding GOD !
