So I’ve been busy. Old news what!
Past few weeks have run away like seconds.
Two trips – Jaipur for a wedding and Pondicherry for a holiday. More trips likely this year with one definite. Want to try and go to Goa at least once this year. Could not go last year which sort of broke my promise to myself to go there at least once a year.
Work has been hectic and killing. But is sort of fun because I am in charge. BM coding has slowed down too slightly since folks at home so am always with them. This sucks because I have a lot of stuff I want to do but do not have the time to
No time for photography. Reading has slowed down too. Sleep seems to always hover around me but not for enough time.
Time seems to be flying away. Apparently relativity is hot around me but without the pretty girl.
Found this lovely video of a addictive song and an beautiful voice. Have listened to it at least 15-20 times in the past 2 days. I think it was a very good discovery. Nice songs on the singer’s (Emily Wells) myspace page too. I think I really like her voice and her unique style of singing. Will keep track of her.

Birthday was celebrated in the trip to Jaipur. Turned out to be a fabulous day capped off by an awesome party; not due to my birthday but the bachelor’s party of the groom whose wedding I was attending there. His wife is lovely. They are staying with us for this month so yay..
Decades.. Long time. Another year gone past. Don’t feel wiser, older, mature or accomplished.
Heck I don’t feel too very different. Ah well, here’s to me ;)
Ps. Thoughts in another post
Yes, I had stated that it will be just another day (wont be visible because the post is private), the birthday turned out NOT to be just another day. Infact it was a great day. My oldest friend surprised when she turned out to be in town (which she pretended she was not) and came home to surprise me.
Later had a lengthy and fun lunch with her, bro and friends at a nice restaurant. And finally in the evening dinner with my elder bro. The day finally topped off with getting to see and play with his daughter who had just returned from Delhi with my sis in law.
Had been to one of the most fun parties I have been to in a long time. It was a party organised by a group of my friends, and co-incidentally they chose yesterday to hold it which was also my birthday :)
Though I reached a bit early, with many of them coming about 9.30 pm or so.. Everyone went for dinner after that. The party really started after we came back.. Lighted a few candles, put on some music (not slow romantic stuff but a mix of bhangra, rock, pop and the like)
Everyone was dancing and it was so much fun with no lights and only a couple of candles lighting up the place. (They had originally planned for strobes and some disco lights but there were not available :( )
After quite some dancing, and most ppl tired, we all played a game of truth & dare after which sat around chatting some more.. By then it was already almost 4. And since I know my dad wakes up around 4ish, I returned home, which is like 5 min from their home. Sneaking was fun and luckily I was wearing rubber soled sneakers so managed to get in relatively quietly ;)
All in all, it was really a fun day!
Got a nice surprise today when everyone here in office celebrated my birthday, which is tomorrow today.
We had gone out for lunch. Unknown to me, one of them here, Vidya delayed me on purpose. Me, I did not suspect anything. We were quite a bit late in going but everyone else was waiting for us, which though I did find a wee suspicious that they waited for us, but anyway we carried on with lunch.
So we were just chatting around and eating. About near the end, the restaurant to which we had gone, Pizza Hut, played the “Happy Birthday to you” song. Now it being my birthday tomorrow, the rest of the ppl started singing too. Though I did not realise the song was played specially for me :) I thought it was for others. Only when the cakes (Yes, cakes, there were two of ’em) I realised they were giving a surprise. And a very pleasant one too.
So they lighted up the candles, and everyone once again sang Happy Birthday. And then the people in Pizza Hut sang a different version again wishing me for my birthday.
In all, it was great fun. Thanks everyone who did it :-)
