Friends.... Wine.... Cricket....

0 People commented...
Friendship is the only relationship that a person can choose, all other relationship are inherited, or rather it better to you u are added to the relationship tree.
Some how I consider it is the best gift we possess that we can choose friends or the other way round some choose you as a friend.

Over the time, we become close to many friend in our walk on life, starting from our childhood. In our childhood, all those kids who shared their toys became our friend, those who had Cricket bat with them; they were undoubtedly the best friends.

Garfield and Odie are the best friends....
However, of all this we all end up having couple of nice friends this friends are not need basis, like those earlier one, friends for criket bat, if I choose to play some other game I might not be in contact with my cricket bat friend.
As time progress, we leave school behind; we cruise through college get entangled in our professional-personnel life, in all this race our friend circle keep on changing. Similar to weather, but as we sometime have unpredictable rainfall in summer time, we bump up with some lost yester year friend, and that when they try to dig up laugh out all those sweet memories they had.

Friendship is like wine; the more you preserve in wooden barrel the more it ferments, similar friendship over the time it ferments and they mature over time, and that when you do not require assuring and re-assuring about the importance of a friend.

But at time when wine is not stored properly, or it their was a leak in the wooden barrel, the natural ferment process do not work, similar at times, we to hold out for some small incident that leads to bad scar
Is it good is it bad, every one will have his or her voice in this…. But for friend this was not good I assume.

Leaving all apart I still love cricket and wine, leave all difference and watch a cricket game over wine… you will be back as those olden days…

To Friendship, it is the invisible link that we share, which other will not see.

Fall Color: This is the only time of the year when nature adores itself in best looking color… that will sooth your eyes, as else you can see in this way also, nature wants be in the best looking way just to make its self stand one last time before the winter start, as next few months evening would be covered in slow… leaves will be long gone, and slow flakes would take their place, and the long wait for spring when plant and tree will wake from the long winter, and would be spring back to life with small green tender young leaves….

Summer is the time, when you can see people or rather better to fairer sex in their bets colorful dress for the summer, walking down the city lanes will make sure you will catch glimpse as if rainbow is spread on street, with long sunny day, pleasant weather to travel freely…
Picture taken 2 years back, outside of the apartment.
As fall approaches, one can fell the slight chill in the air and with each passing day we happen to see less bright day… which indicates it the time the pass on color people to nature… this is exactly what happens, we can see all those color full dresses and designer fashion trends packed back in wardrobe and made way for Black and Grey winter clothes….

But this weather cycle is amazing as each one get his chance to adore colors…. And Halloween comes around the same time, why let not pumpkins show of how pretty they can look.
Halloween Time: when funny and colorful pumpkins all around

Another nice Sunny weekend... Bus Ride to remember...

0 People commented...
This weekend... We start our usual weekend planning by mid week 

For a change for this week we planned to visit a Ganesh Temple... After a long time i am visiting a temple... it is located in Flushing NY, when we had reached it had very less people around that the best time I like, You happen to be a sacred place the silence soothes your mind.

If we look at the travel it is a bit long journey considering the travel time
Take a bus to New York City, which took 40min thanks to traffic
Take a subway to Flushing 45min train journey 
Take a bus ride a rather short ride 10 min
And finally a 2 min walk...
As the day was bright and sunny we did not feel the journey.... 

The funniest bus ride on our return... 

The bus only accepts coins $4.5 and we both did not had any coins along with us... 

Firstly we went to a store and bought bottled water, asked him to rerun back on coins he no no no not all coins... he gave us $3.75 
We went to next store and bought another bottled water and finally we had our required fares....

Some funny thing about NewYork buses
Some buses accept only coins
Some accepts Coins and Currency Note (That to only $1 note) this funny incident happens some time we three boarded this bus

I asked the lady driver what the fare for us

Lady Driver, tell it is $7.5

I was happy as I had exact change (one 5 and 2 singles and rest in coins)

She smiled and said u put any Currency Note the machine will read as $1

I was like ahhhh..

She toils it happen I know u are putting the total money correctly let the machine thin other way

I said that is awesome and thanks for the ride

So back where I started the temple we visited was really nice, its being expanded so lot of work in progress state.

Below picture I took of one of the entrance
This is one of the side entrance, Once all work is complete the temple will look splendid.

Time Travel

4 People commented...
Once again this post I am tagging myself from ‘Preeti post which I am being following from past some time…

And at times when I see an interesting post, I tag myself and add my own twist and realistic flavor and put up a fun filled post….

The topic of this post was rather interesting, where it allowed me travel to my past using a time-machine and meet my younger yourself

So with below set of initial guidelines I am all set and steer down time and visit myself  

1. Depending on your age, go back 10, 15, 20, or even more years.
2. Tell us how many years back you have travelled and why.
3. Pretend you have met yourself during that era, and tell us where you are.
4. You only have one "date" with this former self.
5. Answer these questions.

In this case I am setting my clock back 10 year and meet myself 10 years back in history, time would be post june-july 2001 by I am starting of with my 3rd and final year in college and my next coming summer I would graduating.
Like most at that time I was completely clueless what am I supposed to dong in next summer when I graduate…. I have no slight idea where I was to lead….

So I have attempted to answer honestly below question:

  1. Would your younger self (YYS, from here) recognize you when you first meet?
May be or may be not… as over the year I had lost 25 ponds( roughly 12kg), back lately have crew cur hair style, back in those days I had long curly hair…..

  1. Would YYS be surprised to discover what you are doing job wise?
For sure my YYS would have been surprised to see I did not follow t he usual footstep of IT professional, who end up hopping from one company to another every 2-3 years, at time I myself being surprised how i am still going strong in the same organization after 8 years.
Another reason for surprise for sure would be how I managed a blog site and completed 100+ post.

  1. What piece of fashion advice would you give YYS?
Guys can have t-shirts other then ‘Grey’ back then I member I used to have multiple t-shirt if grey color and few more in shades of grey ….

  1. What do you think YYS is most going to want to know?
Has my short temper been sobered out. Not sure what was running in my mind back in those days… to admit the truth still date at time I loose… but I have leant, when to turn away and stay silent…  need to learn ‘Laughter Therapy’ (something similar to Boman Irani from Munna Bhai MBBS)

  1. How would you answer YYS's question?
I am feeling nice for the way things are aligned currently still some work pending,,,

  1. What would probably be the best thing to tell YYS?
I would say, life is like a puzzle, and will face some odd and jumbled, better approach would be spend some time and then approach it… the bets solution one will arrive on will be when one is a bit patience
And second would falling in love to person whom you have know all this years not realized that you both should be together.

  1. What is something that you probably wouldn't tell YYS?
Hmmmm do I have some dark secret that I would have to hide… in that’s let it be still uncovered :-0

  1. What do you think will most surprise YYS about you?
After all this years, I have a nice bunch of friend on whom I can vouch

  1. What do you think will least surprise YYS?
That I am still out loud laughing… it had not slowed over the years
  1. At this point in your life, would YYS like to run into "you" from the future?
Yeah if yes, then he would be surprised, as still by heart I am still the YYS...
