Truth Hurts - Wake Up Call!

We all celebrated our Ganesh chathurdhi with so much fun, devotion & love towards god.. but it is painful to see that we trash the same god.. an email i received and thot it would be worth sharing.. 

this is the situation we see after 11days of the festival..
Is this.. IDOL worship ? IDLE worship ? or IDEAL worship ? 
The Day after .. Would you like your Gods bulldozed like garbage? or dumped like this? and treated like this ??

Ganapati Bappa Moriya!!!

hi guys.. happy Ganesh Chathurdhi n Ramadan.. hope u all had gr8 festivals.. i knw it will b fun making puja, reading out mantras n story of ganesh jhi, having lots n lots of sweets, watching movies n all.. my mom sometimes used to make me read out the story.. n it was all a fun coz we were never been able to read properly coz its in our mother tongue n it wud be like some tongue twister.. :) this time i gave chance to my cousin.. i still remember whn we were kids, we used to go around our colony 2 see all the statues n collect prasadams.. :) it was really fun.. missing those days.. :( heres our today's ganesh jhi.. :)


n also Eid Mubharak 2 all..had lots of Haleem this time.. yummmyyyy!!! :)



It waz not my day...

fortunately or unfortunately, Pria was born on August 27th, 1985.. frm then on she is so much xcited 2 celebrate her bday with her loved ones always.. but august 27th, 2010.. that was her worst bday is all I can say.. for the first time she was all alone.. cud nt be wit her family coz of work.. cud nt meet frens as she waz nt intrstd.. so slept @ around 11:45 the previous night.. family forgot 2 wish her.. :( got few calls.. no cake.. no wishes.. no late night.. had a pleasant sleep aftr sum gud conversations wit frens.. woke up @ around 10:30 which is near 2 mid-day.. half day gone.. got ready 2 off.. no brkfast.. waited for a fren til aftrnoon which made her more mad.. clicked few pictures with timer til tht stupid fren reached her place.. skipped office.. went out for lunch.. roamed around a mall.. got 2 knw tht my this stupid luncheon fren met wit an accident in this hurry.. damn tht was nt the right day for accident.. wished tht shud hav hpnd on some other day!! nevr mind.. fren …

I am hurt....

yeah!! i mean it!! i m hurt.. the biggest weakness in me is i care for ppl so much than required.. n this is the result i get.. i dnt expect anything frm thm.. but dnt knw y they do it.. they knw tht i'l b hurt of this.. they knw tht i m already in pain.. they knw wht my current situation is.. but still.. dnt they undrstand me?? am i so bad?? am i not caring fr thm?? a simple word can create so much pain.. they shud nt hav made fun of me tht way.. it really hurts!! i neva do this 2 any1.. whnevr we hav any fights, we come togethr again coz we r real frens.. so thot they wud undrstand my feelings n b wit me.. i shared my personal things coz they r close 2 me.. but hw can they make of fun of tht nw?? did i evr do tht?? do they think tht i wil go bak to thm?? no, not this tym atleast.. n told thm the same.. "i m nt gng to come bak.. do whtevr u want".. i felt bad whn saying this.. but i dnt knw.. i just said.. may b they wil b hurt or mad or angry on me.. but i m nt bother…

Drive Safe!!!

I am not in a hurry to leave life.. so i try to drive safe.. :)
yeah!! i feel like this when i see ppl flowing fast with the traffic.. as if they are running to see someone whos on ventilator or self taking the last breath.. 

even i love driving alot.. but i believe it shud nt be dangerous to others.. i go mad when i see guys speeding up with gals.. we knw tht u can drive faster.. u need nt showcase tht to us.. :) n nw its more dangerous in rainy season.. plz take care of urselves n others too.. 
few tips or rules to be followed at the minimum:
1. drive @ 50 (for girls, ofcourse) and guys can go till 60 - overspeeding can be a confusion at final moment
2. never over-take heavy vehicles - overtaking can be a risk at many times
3. never forget to use signal lights - they r provided to be used
4. should learn using brakes rather than the actual driving
5. follow traffic lights - you never know others might get inspired from you and start following
6. last but not the least- never forget to wear y…
