WELCOME - 2010 -

Happy New Year - 2010 - !!

CASE - 1 -

From 31st December to 1st January has anything changed ?


  • -the day

  • -the time-

  • -the moment

well that changes everyday !!


-the year !!

ohh ! Now that changes once every year . But yeah it too changes.

But still we find this change more in totality to notice and celebrate.

This means its significant;its "wanted";

A dear friend had his birthday on 31st December . So,its two good ones to cheer for.

I never felt this for my birthday or for that matter anyone else's also.

They too come after a long one year . But we think its OK.

But, this 31st December makes us feel...baap took one full year to make it to this :) :)

CASE - 2-

Since the last 24 hours I have received best wishes from all possible mediums , in all possible ways and from all different people - expected and unexpected.

But I have noticed one thing across all.

We always wish in " May" this happens , "may" you get this , "may" you achieve this.........and likes.

This is so because nothing is fixed.

Life changes every now and then.

Jo aaj tumhara hai woh kal kisi aur ka ho jayega. :)

life moves on.......clock ticks and ticks.......

We grow and grow and move on.

We wish whatever good has gone by stays and whatever bad was done gets left in the year gone by.

"WISH" :)


CASE -3-

A friend had her status message as "start afresh" .Now that's a nice thought.

Vibrant indeed.

Start afresh. Now the word "afresh" holds the key.

It could be -

  • go back and revert

  • change yourself and move on

  • leave people and start with new ones

  • give one chance more and then start again

  • or just start your day with a hot water bath and feel fresh :)

Too many to say to little to follow.

We ( not me included) make many new year resolutions.

Now I seriously don't get what are these all about. Haven't really made myself any and can't think of making some,anytime soon.

A friend decided to quit smoking from yesterday - 12:00 am onwards.

By the time we went for lunch he had already puffed 6 and till time - 9 and counting....

huh !! such is life dearies :)

In short....

anyways,as always,2009 was filled with surprises. Good and bad.

Learnt a lot , shared a bit , I guess and thinking that only the good ones are carried along.

So,bad luck to the poor ones . They couldn't make it.

btw - must watch - 3idiots .

Being an Indian Police Service Officer - an IPS

Everytime I watch a movie , like  - Sarfarosh , Gangaajal or Sehar , all I want to be , in this life is - an IPS officer. 

You may think its the power and the pride that comes with the post which an IPS officer holds or some of you may say its the sheer status the word IPS reflects upon . The perks like most of us know , is having an unprecedented power , a lal-batti , a huge team which does ' Jai Hind ' and a whole lot of a new world .

Given, I have had a good fortune to be in a family of IPS and know and understand from them what is it being an IPS officer most of the above mentioned movies or may be the image we tend paint in our minds is very different from what actually is an IPS officer and what all does he undergoes to be one.

I would put my take on this and share with you all my thoughts on what is a life of an IPS .

Studying is just a part of it . The civil services examination is considered not only the toughest in Indian competitive examination scenarios but also one o…

10 things to do in Kodaikanal

There is something about rains and open spaces that make me a little more than hilarious . And not only me , couple of others as well . 

Today , rains in Delhi bought back the festive cheer killing the week long SMOG clouding all around Delhi / NCR . As I up for an early morning catch-up breakfast with a few special folks , we decided let's step out and drive away to a place far from the traffic snarls yet has a festive cheer .

The thought came to go to Kodaikanal . While you may think I am crazy and my rest of the gang mad but then this is how life should be - unplanned , unbiased and unimaginable yet positive . 

Known world over as the princess of hill stations this place has made me fall in love all over again . My first thought on reaching here was , this can't be in India . This has to be a foreign location.   Pristine surrounding ,  lovely people to talk to and spend time with and not to forget the bicycles that can be rented to take a ride or two around the famous Kodaikan…

Travel Diaries & more - Make it count

Everytime I travel, I look forward to meeting new people. New places as well can be explored but what is home without humans!?
Off late, besides the flights getting delayed, I like to reach the airport ahead of my scheduled departure timing & sit around in the lounge & read or chit-chat. Works for me.
Last week was fun & yet a bit hectic. During one of my lounge visits I hosted a dear friend ( though exactly for 15 minutes ) for a small #CoffeewithKaran session & off he had to go. In those 15 minutes we spoke in true blue corporate styles. First 5 minutes updates from him and I sipped my hot chocolate and then the next 5 minutes updates from my side.  The remaining 5 minutes were spent on discussing  ' better than before'  .
During my flight I met an amazing doctoral student or a fellowship candidate as she likes to be described. She was pursing her close 4 years doctor fellowship from a premium institute and such was her focus that she decided not to get married …
