I'm Alive

This is to tell you all, my friends, out there that I'm well and alive. Or should that be alive and well ?Anyway! I have been busy with work and lots of other things. But I intend to write the following posts by Friday, they have been pending in my head for long and after Friday I will have other stuff to write about :) (Friday ... S and I leave for a 9 day trip of Egypt!!!!!!! :)!!!! ... I think you get the picture )
  • A review of this place called Dara's Dhaba
  • An account of S and my trip to Matheran and our stay at the Veranda In the Forest
  • A chronicle of reasons I like Delhi, or why Delhi has that pull for me (want to write this before I dive into Dalrymple's City of Djinns, a book I have been wanting to read for the longest time and have finally acquired)
  • A hilarious tale about my mom coloring my dad's hair black
  • A certain dream I had which made me think I was in a dream :)
  • About a friend who recently left his current way of life and is now running two schools in Rishikesh
  • Addition: The takeover of my car by the driver and turning it into a temple through religious blackmail!!

Can think of only these at the moment. The list is for me as well and now that I look at the list ... looks like a bit much and I may be forced to revise the timelines!!


All this made me think of this wonderful quote from a TV series which is full of wonderful quotes. Here goes, Allie in Taken:

"People talk a lot as if the most important thing in life is to always see things for what they really are. But everything we do, every plan we make, is kind of a lie. We're closing our eyes and pretending that the day won't ever come when we won't need to make any more plans. Hope is the biggest lie there is, and it is the best. We have to keep going as if it all mattered, or else we wouldn't keep going at all."

Smoooth, you didn't mention by which Friday you'd post all those posts

Saw your comment and was thikning of replying to it saying "SHE'S ALIVE" (mad scientist cackle). And then I saw your blog post. I'll be dropping that idea right about now.

Loved the quote from Taken... there were quite a few good one's in there.

Egypt? You're going to Egypt? Sounds cool! Ask the sphinx a few riddles for me will ya? On second thoughts, thats a stupid idea. Sorry.

I have many of those quotes saved somewhere ... will start posting them here!

And yesssss!!!Me goes to Misr!Have always been fascinated by the country and the civilization. And oh, have been told by two totally random, unconnected people that I have an Egyptian 'connection'.. LOLL!So for all you know the sphinx may turn out to my long-lost buddy.In which case I will bring him along so you two can play 20 qns :P
