Dear S

Yesterday was your Annaprasana function. It was great but you were very tired. So we decided to let you skip bath and sleep thru. Sometimes when I wake up in the middle of night to feed you, when my mind is drifting between alertness and ambiguity, when the noises drown out and I can listen to my subconscious a little more clearly, I think what did I do to deserve you. What good deeds did I do to deserve so much happiness. You are a blessing in the truest sense.

Love,

Dad.


Strength

09Mar11

I pray to God, may be not to solve my problems, but to give me enough strength to solve them on my own.


Is this it?

May be this is what they say when they say – You’ll know when you meet her.


Instinct

29Nov10

But there’s something strong about Insticnt … that escapes Logic or any reasoning or anything that has to do with brain. Sometimes somethings just feel right ….. without explanation. Its almost as if we can see beyond the present circumstances, past through the curtains of thought & logic into what might be perceieved as the best thing to happen in distant future. Instinct has never failed me ……. to date.


Biking in the sunset

Biking is my new passion. And when nature greets u with such views, how can u not like it.


Five Years

04Oct10

So its been five years since I came to USA and I must say what amazing five years these were. Started as a student with a part time job in the re-creation complex and ended up as an Engineer, but its not quite the beginning and the end that matters. Its all that mid way that does. Because no matter how you look at it – the most important thing is how have u grown as a person. My Dad asked me – have you changed in the last five years, I think he wanted to hear no. But I said yes, I have changed in the past five years – I  learnt to be humble and respect every person for who they are, I’ve learnt the value of money, I’ve learnt to spend money and not regret it, done jet skiing, bungee jumping and sky diving and learnt how Life which  we think of as eternal is just waiting for the next accident to happen, have traveled places only I had dreamt of – Vegas, New York, San Fransisco, Paris, Amsterdam and learnt no matter how people look or talk, they are the same. I’ve learnt to think – about Life, People and Destiny. I’ve learnt not to be objective and see the holistic picture, to read people and know who my friends are and who pretend to be. Gained some friends, lost some and some who were friends but are now just the people I know. On the whole, yes I have changed for better or worse, letting it be and moving on with who I am …… that was what happened in these Five years.


1. Hero getting stabbed or shot in the climax and hospitalized. We know he’ll survive.

2. Flashbacks in Black and White. We can discern between present and past. Plz dont insult our intelligence.

3. Triangular love stories. We know who the lead actors are and we know that they’ll get together in the end.

4. When something very unusual or unexpected happens, we know it was a dream. So don’t even bother.

5. If Hero has a Mother and a Sister, they exist only so that they can be captured in the climax to blackmail the Hero. Wonder why they leave the Dad and the Brother alone.
