My experiments with Poetry...

I was always the odd one out
I was the one that never got picked
I was the one who's always been ignored
I was the one who always wished that I wasn't me....

But then it suddenly occurred to me

I was odd bcoz I am special
I never got picked as the situation dint demand it
I was ignored as I dint truly believe that I could make it
And now I know this is me and it's the way I'd like it to be....

A much needed break ....

Hi folks !!! I know its been a long time since I have posted. But I cant give any 'I am busy' kind of excuses. Because I know that we always take out time for the things we love doing. So instead of getting into reasoning and explanation lets get into what I am good at ;) covering it all up with an amazing experience.

This was somewhere around the beginning of May this year. I was watching Dil Chahta Hai on my laptop and I cant help but remember my best buddies Teja and Raju. Its not like our college days, though we were regularly in touch over phone,we were not finding time to meet each other regularly as each one of us is staying in a different city. So soon after the movie I called them up and asked them when we are meeting again. But this time we wanted to do some thing special as Raju was leaving for IIM C in a months time. So he came up with an idea and that's when we all agreed upon going on a trip to Goa.Also we asked our common friend Jithin to join and thus the plan was fixed. But then as I told its not like our college days we had to manage our leaves and all. Its been relatively easy for me but Teja had to struggle a bit I guess. Then came my another close friend Nishanth(who was supposed to leave to Canada in a months time) into picture. Suddenly one weekend after this plan was made he has visited me and said lets go to Goa (yea you heard it right !!!) I said we cant do anything in two days and explained about our plan. Thats when he too joined with us along  with Kalahar Reddy. So we all booked our tickets and it was during May end this year we took the much needed BREAK.

(Looking at this pic I cant help but remember my Sis's comment. When I uploaded this pic in FB my Sis commented saying 'Its copied from Dil Chahta Hai where is the originality?' and what I dont forget is my quick and clever witted friend Raju's reply to that saying 'Our friendship is original which isnt the case with the movie' :D )

It was a four day plan and we just relaxed in our resort pool on the first day. The weather of Goa was quite hot. But then you cant complain about it,as there are lots of other things which divert you. We just went to beach in the evening to check out the water sports and all. Next day we went for the water sports like Water Scooter Riding,Banana Ride,Paragliding etc. It was great fun. Especially the banana ride where Jithin was literally screaming for life whenever we went down into the water and also Nishanth and Raju got rescues by the sea rescue team !!!(None of them know to swim except me). Next day Kalahar had to leave due to some personal work and we took three yamaha FZ-S's for rent to go around. Our first destination was Fort Chapora where the filming of Dil Chahta Hai took place. More than the fort the view was breath taking. From there we went on to a beach near by. On return to the resort we again jumped into the pool boozing till it became dark again. The next day we had the ride of our life (80 km along the NH-7 which cuts through various rivers and beaches) from Calangute to Colva. It was amazing except for the Traffic Police stopping us for not wearing the Helmets !!! But then we enjoyed a lot. That day it was the last night during our stay at Goa and we thought we should party hard. We went to Bhaga where karaoke night was going on. Though we dint scare anyone with our terrible voices there. We went and shaked a leg for few songs.Later we had dinner on the beach with cool breeze comforting us. Dinner along with Hukka and offcourse other drinks was great. We were enjoying every moment of it and thats when rain played the spoil sport. We took few more breezers and left for the room. There we started just where we left. Amazing dance performances by all of us (especially Raju). Finally the day has come when we have to leave. We did some shopping that day before leaving for the Busstop. That night we celebrated our friend Teja's birthday and it was a nice way to end the trip. But its always painful to end such a memorable trip and to digest the fact that even a break will come to a break at some point of time.

It was the most memorable trip of my life. Actually most memorable for all of us. Soon after that I left for Bangalore,Raju left for Kolakata and Nishanth left for Canada. Dont know when we would meet again. We know the importance of this and that was the reason we never thought about how much we are spending. All we thought was to live that moment thats it. I hope and I wish another such trip will materialize soon in the future. So guys you too plan such things before its too late. And as my recent favourite movie Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara emphasizes LET YOURSELF GO !!!!

Painful Experience....

Hi friends !!! Sorry for not being regular on my blog. I am not going to blame it on my busy schedule !!! I was just being lazy :D I cant believe its been 4 months since I blogged. I did lot of things during the se 4 months which I ll share with you people later. But as of now I m gonna discuss about my most painful experience ever !!!.

In February I guess I suddenly woke up at mid night 1 am I guess. It wasn't because of a nightmare but it was because of a nightmare to be pain. My left jaw was paining so much that I couldn't bear it. I couldn't sleep any more and I was waiting for the time to pass so that I can visit a dentist. All this pain was because of my mistake of ignoring a similar pain during November last year. So after surviving the unbearable pain for 5 hours I  went to a dentist only to know that its just a beginning.....

I always was afraid of dentist and all that equipment and that day I had no other option than facing it. I had to sit for 2 hours with my mouth wide open. Dentist was doing the treatment on the decayed part of my tooth and the pain was so extreme that tears rolled out of my eyes. After that day I got to know that I have to come for 6 more sittings of same kind to get it fixed. It was root canal analysis and was dealing with sensitive part of my tooth. It costed me approximately 10k and also I had to go through lot of physical and mental pain.

So friends never ignore any symptoms of malfunction of your body. Otherwise you will be repenting later.

Thats definitely a 'NEW' Year for me !!!

Its not just a new year for me. Its a new experience that I had on the occasion of new year eve, the previous night. New year was always special for me. Don't know why but even today I feel excited about it as much as I used to feel about it a decade ago !!!

All of this started on one of our family gatherings(Our family gatherings are mostly involving our family and my uncle Mr Ganapati Rao's family and my aunt Mrs Parvati Devi's family) some where in the mid 90's . That day my dad announced that he is going to host a party on Dec 31st of that year. We weren't sure whether it will be a success or not. But as a kid I always loved the idea of parties. So I was super excited and hence waited eagerly for that day . Finally the D day arrived. My dad has a great ability to manage events(Probably he would have made a good event manager if he had an opportunity) and my sister inherited those traits later on. But that night he made nice arrangements which was really the best we could have considering our financial position then. All of us are happy with the arrangements but we dint know what to do till the clock rings the bell !!! So we used to play tambola and elders used to play cards and all. As the party was a success our three families decided to arrange the party on every Dec 31st alternatively at their respective houses. With every year passing by we kids turned into teenagers and the fun got amplified. Also we started playing various games and we used to dance and all. It was great fun during those days when I was in my teenage.I love my dad for starting some thing like that.

Hmmm but as every good or bad thing comes to an end. Even these new year parties started to bore me. I missed the party one year because of my exams and I dint feel the difference. May be I wanted to do some thing different. I used to envy my friends who would party till late nights. To add to my worries I had this rule at my place that I have to reach home by 10pm . During my engineering I used to ask my dad to let me go party with my friends. He always used to postpone that by saying this one time attend this party and you can go from next year. The same happened last year also and my dad was like "We don't know where you would be next year so spend this night with us". Eventually my dads words turned out to be true and I got posted in Bangalore.

Don't know why but I dint really plan any thing special for the new year till Christmas. But I got a call next day from my best friend Raju saying that he would be coming to Bangalore. So I thought why not plan some thing BIG ;) I started searching for all the new year events in Bangalore and finalised on Manchester United Bar and Restaurant. And yesterday as my regular habit goes !!! I again did shopping on the first day of receiving my salary and went to the pub at some where around 8pm. Initially there was no crowd and I was disappointed. But later on slowly the place was flooded with people and we were ready to rock the floor ! That's when we got to see some fine salsa and rap performances which got us into the mood. We danced for more than two hours. The drinks and food was superb. Finally we left the place at 1am . I dint have any stamina left in me by the time I reached home and I collapsed onto my bed. But on waking up today morning I really had this great feeling that "yes I am living it to the fullest !!!" Though its been 6 years since I became friends with Raju we never had this freedom back in Hyderabad. So it was great having him here and I missed my another close pal Teja who couldn't make it to the party. Any ways ALL IZZZ WELLL that ends Well. So wish you all a very prosperous new year and have a great life ahead.
