It's the last day of the year.
So how did the year shape up?
Did it live up to your expectations or did it just go by?
Ok lets recap.
My brother celebrates his 21st birthday.
N My cuz got married whose just 7 months older to me. Well for the record that was Bridesmaid No. 4 for me!
Valentine's Day. The best ever! 9 single friends got together... umm actually it was 8, so we were all couples. I know what you are thinking, but the amazing part is that we all walked out still single!
Guess this could one day feature in Ripley's believe or not!
I don't really remember anything specific happening during this time... perhaps I was suffering form amnesia.
The last days of class. Post Graduate from XIC in mumbai... We rocked. More partying & picnic'in than academically.
All said and done, I would say we gang members did pretty well. An A grade is not bad! It's good!
Thank God our classes got postponed. After being together for 10 months, most of us felt it should have gone on for another year. Every single extra class was welcome!
We should have been waitin for classes to get over. After all, we as professional working people slogged from Mon-Fri, some even Saturdays & then dedicated the weekends to class! Believe me when i say we had no life!
Then again -- THIS WAS LIFE!
3 gang members threw the party of the year! A birthday bash that had everyone talking. N not everyone was invited.
2 more gang members celebrated their birthdays.
The Independence Day extended weekend saw a gang trip to Goa!
4 days, 3 nights of fun, sand & sea.
N yes churches and how can I forget tons & tons of relatives!
It was the best days of our lives.
The Summer of 2006 (sang on the tunes of Summer of 69... thanks Bryan Adams, we love u!)
Another gang members birthday. Celebrations had to follow!
My parents celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary.
25 years of marital bliss... now that is something!
N yes another gang members birthday.
The baby in the gang celebrates his birthday. Other than that what more do i say?
A month of total excitement. I just can't wait for it to be Dec 22nd!!!
y? Cos i get to go home. I was really missing home.
From then on its been one helluva party. The best Christmas ever!
Hey did i tell u... I got a ferrari special picture edition book & an F1 car (tat was a birthday gift that was well really belated)
So that was the year for me... Interesting, sometimes painful but on the whole a great learning experience!
So on the last day of the year, let me close it by saying thanks to one and all.
Thanks for being the supporting cast in my movie.
The film is still rolling so till we meet again my friend...
here's wishing you a very HAPPY NEW YEAR'07.

There comes a time when we all want to hate this person or object as much as it hurt us. Right?
After all wasn’t that how we were conditioned?
You bang a table and the poor piece of furniture becomes bad bad table!
We fall down taking our first steps and it’s a bad floor!
But blame the world… the circumstances… the person.
Come on people, as we grow, we fall.
Knock ourselves over, but it this learning process of life that helps us get over.
There are times when we hurt so bad!
It’s like a sword going through, “It was no fault of my own,” we cry,
Yet the other person felt right to put us through.
So what do you do?
Just what do you do?
Turn to God?
Pray that the Saviour will help you!
Or turn to a friend?
Angel in disguise who’ll do everything by just hearing you through!
Life is tough.
You love. You fail.
Through the darkness sometimes you win.
But most of the time you just go down the drain...
This is not about hating things or people.
It’s about learning to walk again.
Sometimes we wish to inflict pain,
But think again just what will you gain.
When happiness is grabbed from right between your eyes,
believe me, its not easy mate.
But listen to your heart,
it will never tell you to hate!

Sometimes there comes a time in your life when you don’t know what’s true?
If the people you know and the people you trust are really who they are?
But amid this, its sad but true, yes, life does go on...
With the hurt, with the pain, amid the darkness and sometimes in the rain.
Hold my hand least I should fall.
Help me stumble through, in all my goodness least I should hurt myself, falling down and ask,
“Was that really you?”
"Please don’t do this to me, there’s only so much I can take.
It’s not easy honey, but it’s life you are pushing me through with a damn narrow gate!"

And that made me no different. But what’s with the colour anyway? At the end of the way it’s just a freaking colour!
But no! people still hate the sacred colour. I don’t find it girly per se. But I sure wouldn’t like to see a guy in baby pink, though there are a lot of tones that actually make a guy look good. Ok the question I get repeatedly asked when I try to argue this point, “would you like to see your boyfriend in pink?” or better still, “would you gift him a pink shirt?”
The answer, well why not? I have seen first hand how good a particular tone of pink looks on… well you could say my guy. It’s a different ball game & mind you it doesn’t make him anything less of a man.
I never realized when ‘pink’ conquered my life. Literally conquered! Today I swear the colour has taken over. My wardrobe is a classic example. I have a pink pen, pink slippers, pink bag, and still when I go shopping I feel I don’t have that shade in pink!
So what is it about the colour? I don’t know! And I don’t want to know, why should I kill the fun just dissecting the colour.
Pink is cool!
Pink is happening!
Pink is Yo!
Pink is me!

As much I hate the holiday season, as there goes one more year you have to be happy yet lonely. So come again, that happy season, where all you guys can make a difference in my life. Forget causes like a million candles! Ask yourself do you really want to add to the pollution levels. Support a cause; bring a smile on a young girl’s face. (and if you are wondering who, that’s me!) Now get to the list…
For the 12 days of Christmas, I would love…
An iPOD Nano in a colour no less than the sacred ‘pink’
A pair of BLUE Levi’s size 28 low-rise jeans (it has to be blue, no fancy stuff!)
A pair of Adidas shoes
A ticket to all nite partying
A sponsored experience to Para-gliding
The book ‘Shantaram’
A trip to Andaman Islands
A huge box of ‘Galaxy’ milk chocolates
A dinner for two & a sexy dude too ;)
Go bungee jumping
Go biking cross country
A new digital camera
So there you have it! And you thought you didn’t know what to get me! See I live to make lives easier. After all, if there’s anything I can do to help you please do tell.
And guys, please see all gifts reach my home that is Goa, as will be home for the holidays. Or you can give it to me personally, before I leave. For all those across continents, I bet you all of heard of FedEX?
