lots of update atlast..

First things first....
Wish you all the Indians out there reading this post -

A Happy Republic Day....

Atlast am getting sometime to update my blog :)
Work was hectic for the past few days. Now am in my hometown in Kerala :) Came here for a 4-day break and that explains why I was busy with my work.... had to complete some before I take an off on Friday..

Lots of things to update and write.. but, now that am at home, all that I do is eat lots of gud food, talk to my parents and sleep whenever I want. I can see some ppl getting really jealous thr :P
Anyway, let me recollect abt what I wished to write...
Here r some... would be long I presume.. enjoy reading at ur own pace n time...
  • The release of Rang De Basanti.... Being a great Aamir fan, was looking forward to this movie.
    Wasn't much impressed by his previous movie Mangal Pandey, but this one looks good.
    The music is fabulous and hope the film would also be. Planning to go to tht movie very very soon :)

  • Did you hear? Some of the IIT-ians have formed together a new political party a-la Yuva style in an aim to do good things for the country rather than for personal parties like whats happening currently.
    Check out the following link for more info and lets support that these ppl do achieve what they are trying for..
    Lets support this party- Paritrana , the YUVA....

  • And now for some sports.... from the Australian open...
    For a change there is a new teenage sensation in the men's tennis too this year in the form of Baghdatis :)
    Man this guy is really in his best form beating four seeded players on his way to the finals.... But, hope my fav Roger Federer would be there to see him off :)
    Anyway, best wishes to him.. wouldn't mind a new guy winning and being a real threat for Roger Federer.

    I somehow feel Justin Henin is the women's form of Roger Federer.. :)
    The way she plays the backhand shots reminds me of Federer... Federer plays those shots with ease as if he is playing Table tennis.. and she too is not that far behind..

    The Indians too are not far behind... even if Sania failed our expectations, Leander(in doubles finals n mixed quarters) n Bhupathi(mixed semis and tht too with Hingis... .lucky guy :D) are still there for us to cheer.. All the best for them too...

  • Some of the films seen by me of late..
    Aparna Sen's 15 Park Avenue - We had to chose between Kalyug n this movie and atlast decided to see this one. It was a gud movie and great acting n a nice ending too.. but I liked Mr n Mrs Iyer better than this one...
    I like Rahul Bose in these kinds of movies.. his acting is really gud and as of Konkana, do I have to say anything abt her acting abilities?? she is amazing asusual...

    Home Delivery - Watched this movie last week on TV. Was jus curious to know why ppl are terming it as a terrible movie.. After seeing tht movie, I felt Vivek Oberoi was the terrible part of tht movie.. :)
    Ayesha Takia looked fabulous in the movie and Boman Irani did very well in what he is known for and same to Mahima :P I hope u get wht am saying.. :D

    Incredibles - Wht an incredible movie!!! Late to see this movie.. I know.. nevertheless didn't meant to miss it... Got my own dvd of the movie and watched it..
    I heard the second part of this movie is coming out. Does anyone know abt tht?
    I wish they make as many parts as they could of this movie and still I would watch all those parts.

    As I talk abt this animated movie, I would like to telling you all abt another animation movie - Hanuman which I didn't miss watching in the theatres. Please do watch this esply becos this is an Indian animation movie... and we Indians are not far behind in making such movies..
    This was also very gud esply the small Hanuman.. I liked tht character alot :)

  • Atlast, my cousin bro is getting engaged soon. Next weekend I'll be going to Kochi to attend his engagement. Do you know what a great sacrifice I'm doing... Am gonna miss the Bryan Adam's show next weekend in B'lore to attend this :(
    Watching Bryan Adams show is one of my lifetime ambition.. yes.. pls don't laugh... :)

    Am doing this all for the sake of my cousin bro, cos we both are the only guys on my father's side... there r ten girls n only two guys.
    There used to be a time during our childhood days... when we all get together, We both would be bullied alot... :)) a different situation isn't it..

    Now tht he is getting engaged, all are forcing my parents to look for a gud daughter-in-law for them (heheheeee), but my parents r saying am still a kiddo :((
    Hey Chandu, pv n Ricky.. i know what u guys would write after seeing this.. beware!!! thts all I would say..
Now let me start my blog hopping.. long time since I kept track of most of the blogs... Oh.. guess my mother is calling me to have my dinner.. so, wait till I come back to read ur posts.. :D
Lastly, ifatall someone has actually read this huge post.. A big hug n thanks to them.. :)

If you're not the one...

If you're not the one then why does my soul feel glad today?
If you're not the one then why does my hand fit yours this way?
If you are not mine then why does your heart return my call
If you are not mine would I have the strength to stand at all

I never know what the future brings
But I know you are here with me now
We'll make it through
And I hope you are the one I share my life with

I don't want to run away but I can't take it, I don't understand
If I'm not made for you then why does my heart tell me that I am?
Is there any way that I can stay in your arms?

If I don't need you then why am I crying on my bed?
If I don't need you then why does your name resound in my head?
If you're not for me then why does this distance maim my life?
If you're not for me then why do I dream of you as my wife?

I don't know why you're so far away
But I know that this much is true
We'll make it through
And I hope you are the one I share my life with
And I wish that you could be the one I die with
And I pray in you're the one I build my home with
I hope I love you all my life

I don't want to run away but I can't take it, I don't understand
If I'm not made for you then why does my heart tell me that I am
Is there any way that I can stay in your arms?

'Cause I miss you, body and soul so strong that it takes my breath away
And I breathe you into my heart and pray for the strength to stand today
'Cause I love you, whether it's wrong or right
And though I can't be with you tonight
And know my heart is by your side

I don't want to run away but I can't take it, I don't understand
If I'm not made for you then why does my heart tell me that I am
Is there any way that I can stay in your arms?

This is one of my fav romantic songs in English. I donno how many of you have listened to this song. Its sung by Daniel Bedingfield.
The lyrics.. aren't they beautiful? and the way he has sung this one is also very different.. do listen to this one.... if u want, i can send the song thro' mail too.. :)

Apart from this one, some others like "I don't want to close my eyes" by Aerosmith and "Nothings gotta change my love for you" by Glenn Medeiros are my other favourite romantic number..
Which romantic songs do u like? do share with me.. so that I can check those too.. :)
Currently listening to some haunting Kishore Kumar numbers... I can't imagine a life without music... :)

jus some thoughts after returning from my native..

hey all... so, how is the New Year going for u all?
I jus came back from my hometown today... Had a relaxing weekend @ home with my parents... Everytime I go to our new house in Kerala, I feel completely relaxed and rejuvenated... thats the beauty of our native isn't it? Wherever we live, study or work, once we return back to our native, the feeling is entirely different. I used to miss my hometown alot since I studied outside Kerala in Tamilnadu... that was becos of my parent's work thr...
Now tht my parents r retired and back to our native, they too are enjoying.. meeting old friends... going to temples for each and every festival... lots of new activities for them and I too feel happy seeing them enjoying everything.
The only thing they miss are their children.. yes.. my sister n myself..
Since my sis is soo far, I make sure atleast I go there monthly once or if possible more frequently..

There was a time when we had to decide on where to settle down. Tht was the time my parents decided they have had enough of this work life and my mother took tht voluntary retirement after my father resigned from his job too. We were contemplating on the various options like settling in our native or in Coimbatore or in Bangalore as I'm working here.. But, I ruled out Bangalore at the first instance itself... the reason being in software line, even am not sure whether I'll be working here for a longgg time and the life style here is completely different from what they r used to.. so, they'll feel utterly discomforted living here... Moreover, I badly wanted them to build a house in our native and shift there so that we still have a proper identity at our native... My sister too was of the same opinion. Atlast, am happy that we took such a decision at tht time... cos now they are really happy to be there. And, as I said, I too feel completely relaxed whenever I go there...

I started writing this post thinking of some other things.. and in the end went on jus to write abt something else.
BTB, if any of you want to know more abt my native, I had written a post abt my native last year.. check it -> link
Anyway, since everyone of us will have some bright memories of our native, let me ask u all...
Do u also feel the same way when u go to ur native.. the place of ur birth.. ur ancestorial place? Do u miss that place (to those who r living outside tht place...)?
What would you do, given an option to settle in a place of ur choice? This, I mean, at ur retirement age... would u love to go back to ur native or settle in a place where there is hi-fi life or where u r more used to?
