300 - Prepare for glory

Today I watched the movie called 300, just loved it the way everything was presented. Mind blowing graphics and my eyes were wide open for those two hours and it hardly blinked. I don't have lot of things to say about the movie but it is an excellent movie to watch. One need to sit and watch in front of the big screen to get into every scenes of the movie and experience the all new special effects with some great back ground music score.

The dialogues are wonderful, I wish I could record it … waiting till I buy the DVD. Here goes one very interesting one ..

Persian Officer: Fools! Our arrows will blot out the sun.
Stelios: Then we will fight in the shade!

So guys don't miss it, I can say worth spending your time and nerveless the message of the movie was very clear.

A Day :)

Things are never the same, yeah! everyone knows “in life change is the only constant thing". It happened to me many times before and I wouldn't surprise to thinking about something unexpected. Well! I am quite enjoying the way life turned back the things to me. Hence, no complaints whatsoever. What more living every moment as if it will never come again and re-living it as if its never going to end. There are ups and downs in every but what is so different is the mantra, which tells us never to stop and never to stuck, is what a happy life all about. And today I experienced it.

The day started as usual with a happy note, some catchy music on the way to office and all the things are on track. On the other hand I am happy these days for not fighting with the morning traffic jam, Thank God!!. Moving towards after noon I got a call from one of my very old friend of my college days, it has been more than 3 years since I met any of my college buddies and to my surprise he started discussing with me, guess what !! the plan for reunion. The good thing about it is that the purposed place is Mumbai. I can’t believe it, just few days back I received a call from another graduation class mate for similar event in Hyd. I know most of them are far away and busy with their day to day work life and the same plan didn't work out for the last year. But now things have been changed completely; I wish all of us can work in the same place, like we used to be there in the college class room :). Let’s see how things are going in coming days and certainly I am looking forward to both of the events.

Then in the evening it was a much awaited meeting with 'granny' friend for the dinner. It was pending for quite some time, never mind we managed to find a quite & nice place with a good menu. Then move on to meet “Sim” for the first time. She is a gal who has good sense of humor. I guess she loves to make everyone around her to laugh as much as they can, the same way her friends do.

Now, back again … to my place, waiting for the day break.

If you find yourself walking alone, with only a candle to take you to the ones in pain, walk on strongly, because there awaits a million stars to light your way too!

Me,Myself & I

Life has so many things for us, we overlook it just to feel like some one else and then ending up finding very little in it. Found the quote matching the thought, “There will never be a better me, than me” because you are unique. I still remember the day, when talking with one of the friend; it’s difficult to realize that things never move with once perception and at times need to show the path of being “me” as a different individual who has the unique way of seeing things differently. And so called surviving skills may not come into the picture. I am here to leave the life and not to survive the way on can imagine. It’s easy to act like some one and speak someone else words but again the very next moment will loose everything as it doesn’t belongs to me, will loose the identity, will loose its uniqueness describing me and easily forget what it was, and it goes on … Is that the same way we are following some one ? Perhaps, can find many answers ...

In the second thought, do I prefer being “me” with myself rather than a you in “me” ? And the answer is “Yes”, without further thinking. Continue …

Hogenakkal Trip

Hogenakal is a beautiful place, where you can find plenty of water falls. It’s in the border of Tamilnadu-Karnataka, around 180 km from Bangalore towards Salem. We started in the early morning; the drive was around 4 hours. It was an amazing ride on NH 7, the roads are pretty good and sometime the speed of the vehicle exceeds 120 Kmph. Here goes few snaps that I took in the trip.
An existing view taken from the top, from this place we started our boat ride, towards some magnificent waterfalls.

View of the Kaveri river from the boat.

needn't mention anything about this pic ...

Typical boats ... were the highlight of the trip.

The mobile shop ... you wouldn’t miss anything :)

Quote(s) of the day !! Hope

Hope is a higher heart frequency, and as you begin to re-connect with your heart, hope is waiting to show you new possibilities and arrest the downward spiral of grief and loneliness. Listening to the still small voice in your heart will make hope into a reality.
- Sara Paddison, The Hidden Power of the Heart

"Be the change you want to see in the world.”

A great saying and a good message that I received this morning, and suddenly I realised that this unknown story has been told several times to us. Perhaps this is yet another reminder to make sure we know what we are searching for, otherwise easily lose off track from the world we live in …

I wanted to change the world...

When I was a young man, I wanted to change the world. I found it was difficult to change the world, so I tried to change my nation. When I found I couldn't change the nation, I began to focus on my town. I couldn't change the town and as an older man, I tried to change my family.

Now, as I grown older, I realize the only thing I can change is myself, and suddenly I realize that if long ago I had changed myself, I could have made an impact on my family. My family and I could have made an impact on our town. Their impact could have changed the nation and I could indeed have changed the world."
