Decorating - The art of installing

Image
Decorations – The name itself has that ‘good vibe’ you feel yourself immersed into the arena.  I had the privilege of being part of a friends function in a faraway place called – Ranikhet. If you thought the surrounding was the ice pick, for me personally it was the decorations that was done in a painstakingly manner .  And when I say decoration it’s not flowers being arranged or put up on tables like we typically would have thought. It’s much more than that.
The entrance was done in a plain yet mesmerizing way by creating temporary waterfalls with an orange background with small lamps all around.  As soon as you entered you were handed over a flower ( random pick from a host of flower stems ) .The d├ęcor was done in white with a hint of purple and an off and on tinge of pink . Different to see since it may sound a little unusual. The place was overlooking the mountain range and the by the start of the evening the stars had also started coming creating the twinkle in the otherwise blac…

Attractive Cosmic Colors

Image
As I was sipping my black coffee by the pool side and the sun setting in , suddenly I saw this server wearing a bright red color attire approaching me . There was a matching scarf to it and the entire walk towards me seemed nothing short of a Bollywood flick.
She kept the starters on the table and went by.
I was still thinking about – red . Have you ever wondered why we get attracted to colors.  Not only this we have preferences also and we are at times skeptical which one to team up with and which one to avoid on certain occasions.  My pals from the school of occult sciences and color therapy would love to chip in with all sorts of reasons on the why part  -  cosmic vibrations , aura , therapies , karmas and the likes  . 
While I do appreciate the science behind all this but at time I fail to understand why I always pick up an apple when I have the choice of having a banana of a kiwi fruit.  Is it because the red scores over the yellow and green or is it purely due to the medicinal prop…

Sunday Specials

Image
It was a rainy Sunday and besides having a liking for rains I also appreciate having an off on Sunday . And when I say off means complete freedom to do what I want to do.
A call from a friend sitting seven seas apart made me put on my thinking hat and do some thought matches .  This friend of mine was just back after doing a community service for a full day .Community service as in helping or doing things for the needy that matter. They do this regularly. If you ask the exact reason why they may not give you an appropriate correct answer .
This made me think two things – Spoiling a Sunday for this service and what is it in for a person.
I was thinking like a corporate and hence the line of thought. First thought is invalid since majority of us on Sunday’s do anything but relaxing .  Second one is the key here.
If you have ever been to a blind school you would realize the gravity of a situation and the magnitude of difference that YOU can create.  These people may be different or as I cal…

Crazy world of - Social Networking -

Image
Recently got a call from a leading business magazine to write up articles for MBA and the power of social networking (SN) linked with MBA's .

Then, an email from one of my good old friends who happens to be working for a major social networking web portal to write something for the portal.

The two situations , if linked well , have a common "pathway".

They want you to be heard. Agreed.
They also want you to use your skills..whatever they may be....Agreed....
and more over ......... enough....kuch bhi ......:P

Thoughts , views and likes are one and the same thing.
I am already doing this through my blog.

The concept of social networking....its a tricky word to say so......is not new.And most my learned readers are familiar with it.

And what makes me say that - My cousin's cute little son ( 8 years ) was pissed off with me .

Why ?

I called him up to wish him "happy wala birthday" rather than dropping into his facebook "wall".

I don't know if he…
