Give every man thy ear, but few thy voice; Take each man's censure, but reserve thy judgement.

Pointers pls

No...Not Technical ones related to C/C++. But can someone help me find out this album sung by Anuradha Paudwal released sometime in 1999?

All that I remember is the video. It is about the life of an army soldier and his wife or fiancee. The lady who has lost him in a war, comes to the house which they had shared and recollects all the good time she spent with him and misses him very badly. That is what the meaning of the song conveys

The video shows the house deserted, with all things (including a huge piano) covered with white sheet of cloth to avoid dust and there are lotsa burning candles too...I don't know why! As the lady dressed in black, moves around the house, there are clippings shown with Anuradha singing, looking at the lady.

This album was released almost during the same time as Aur aahistaa (by Pankaj Udas – an Indian girl with long black hair falling in love with an American boy ) Oh Priya (album featuring Abbas n Preethi – (a sequel to chui mui see tum where they meet, fall in love and get married) Oh meri munni (Remo’s album featuring a school girl) Yaad piya ki aane lagee, Meri chunar ud ud jaaye (Falguni Pathak) Sayyoni (Junoon), Tanha dil (Shaan) Aankhon mein tera hi chehra (Aryan's album featuring Shahid Kapoor where he tries to propose to a girl but in the end he sees her fiancé putting engagement ring to her)

Damn! I remember all these but not the Anuradha Paudwal one :(

Note to my otherwise really sweet MIL

I hate being compared with anyone. Worst scenario being compared with a relative whom I detest. Period! And yeah, the recipe of that relative to prepare paav bhaaji is all crap. Please try to understand that boiling & sauting the vegetables - onions, tomatoes, beans, carrot n potato with salt + chilli powder and "just the act of adding lemon juice to it" doesn't make it bhaaji!!!!! She is fooling you!!!!!

Your loving DIL...

For other Paav Bhaaji is the recipe that I generally follow:)

Should I or Should I not?

Itz been ages since I posted something in this page. Yeah! 2 years is quite a long time. But today I was digging through my archives...and that brought back lotsa memories (my posts would vouch for the fact that am a nostalgic creature) of those good old days of blogging and making friends. This space was a vent for someone like me who isn't a great writer (errr...what is the equivalent word for bathroom singer which would describe your not-so-wonderful-writing skills??)I could also feel the changes within myself over these years - Am little more matured (am I?? :-p)grown stronger & more confident. Lots of changes in the personal and professional front too. I dont even know if my style of writing would be the same!!!!

So, should I start writing again with "Back with a Bang" post or just conclude with a formal Adieu post????!!!!!!!! I sincerely don't know!

Sondha kadhai - A Tag

Tagged by Blogger's Park. So, here goes my long long ago, so long ago story...followed by some favourite stuff

Ten Years Ago - 1996 - 9th std, Singaara Chennai

- Started attending tution for the first time in my life for 10th Std Mathematics. Aim was to get 200/200 instead of the 198 which I was scoring. That I scored 197/200 in X board is a different thing though :))

- Got all my prejudiced opinions, about my school-mate `A, cleared, who also became a tuition-mate and now she is my bessssssstessst friend :D

- Spent as much time as possible in extra curricular activities both in intra and inter school- music, sports, elocution, essay writing, science exhibitions and stuff

- Learnt Aathichoodi by-heart for a competition, which I considered a feat then.
Tried recollecting now..could go on from Aram seyya virumbu only till Oppuravu ozhugu :((

- Went for a Crazy drama in Rani Seethai hall for the first time and got a chance to speak to Crazy Mohan and Madhu Balaji. Mohan blessed me "SiRappum sirippum maaraamaa ennaikum nallaa irukkaNum" :D

Five Years Ago - 2001 - 2nd year, BE in BITS Pilani

- Kept kolu in my hostel room and prepared sundal and kesari(without kesar powder) Our Diro's wife after tasting the kesari said, "Upma romba naNNaa paNNi irukkiye maa...chutney kedayaadhaa :-P)

- Went on a cherishable, wonderful trip to Shimla, Kulu, Manali with college-mates

- Built a "friendship for lifetime" with a senior `B, who got me to the habit of watching TV late in the nights (No, no midnight masalas and Shabaab..C'mon u can't watch them in a hostel common room, votever time it mite me. We were good chamathu gals watching 80's melodies...Seriously, nambunga paa)

- Was a member of Ragamalika and helped in organising the best Sangamam (a classical music and dance festival) of my 3 and half years there - Sudha Raghunathan, Urmila Sathyanarayana and Ganesh-Kumaresh were the guests that year

- Did a course called Principles Of Management - which helped me identify that I have a flair for and an inclination towards management and finance courses. That was when I decided my electives will be mgmt related ones and will definitely do an MBA.
Though have successfully executed the former decision, the latter is still pending :((

Last one year - 2005

- Went on a memorable trip to Kodaikanal with ex-colleagues

- Faced major ups and downs in both personal and professional front as a responsible adult

- Switched job and also started blogging => made very good friends coz of both these activities :)

- Bought an A/C for home and a new mobile for myself - both of which were long pending

- Did vot all any other software engineer will do - coding, bug fixing, testing, documenting, attending meetings, calls, googling, gen browsing, chatting, complaining about proxy servers, discussing about projects, hikes, movies and every other topic under the sun


- Completed my appraisal formalities and submitted all my documents to HR

- Chatted with my college-mate/roomie whoz in Australia

- Went to Pondy Bazaar and did a micro level shopping

- Had Veg Masala toast as breakfast at 12 noon

- Din touch my mobile till this morning after I reached home at 8 pm last nite
