Tata's Nano - Rs one Lakh

Imagine the nightmare on Indian roads. What India needs is strong modern public transportation or a Star wars like air transportation between different floors of different buildings across the city.

No Stereo - I mean in the whole of India, my dad would be the only person who will find this option acceptable. What is an Indian family supposed to do inside this car, bicker? - but don't they do that at home anyways?

Otherwise, yes, it does sound like a boon to several middle class people.

Swear it happened

I had this friend in college. When she laughed, her face would become all red. It was so lovely, the reddish tinge on the brown skin. I observed it with a speck(yeah, just that not more) of admiration every single time.

After my landing at the U.S of A soil, out of the blue , my face started becoming red. That is, when I got angry or was exhausted from sports or just laughed. Every one noticed. I looked at the mirror. It wasn't beautiful or anything but it was red.

A couple of years later, a friend commented that I was blushing due to him. Annoyed as I was actually exhausted from the TT game plus I can't blush, decided the reddening was not fun anymore. Besides, my face already mirrors my feeling(of anger) enough, I could do away with the extra-effect in terms of color. I wished it went away..

And the face no longer becomes red in the aforementioned circumstances.

I swear this happened!

Happy new year

May this New Year
Bring you all the joy and happiness,
without a tinge of sadness.

May this New Year
You meet few like minded souls,
And meet those from other universe as well to fill your life's palette.

May this New Year
You climb that career ladder,
And practise those other interests as well.

May this New Year
Also be blessed with two round trips on happy occassions to India :)

A fulfilling year to me and others as well, if you will, God?
