Smile Break - From Nita

Chris Rock's "Quote of the Year"

"You know the world is going crazy when the best rapper is a white guy, the best golfer is a black guy, the tallest guy in the NBA is Chinese, the Swiss hold the America's Cup, France is accusing the U.S. of arrogance, Germany doesn't want to go to war, and the three most powerful men in America are named Bush, Dick, and Colon. Need I say more?"

Life Path Number

Your Life Path Number is 3

Your purpose in life is to express your unique self.

You are a creative and artistic person with an interesting view on life.
Witty and outgoing, you enjoy sharing your crazy ideas with anyone who will listen.
A total social butterfly, you're the life of any party.

In love, you inspire and enchant your partner. You are often an object of fantasy and desire.

While you are very talented, you sometimes lack the ambition to put your talents in play.
And while your wit carries you a long way, you occasionally use it to mask your true feelings.
Your natural abilities can bring you all the success in the world ... if you let them

Visa Half Time Report

Scores: Pittsburg Steelers 0 Cincinnati Bengals 17 – Half Time.

That was at the Half Time when Bill Cowers walked into the locker room. I was curious to see what kind of a game plan he is going to come up with, knowing he is down by 17 points against Bengal’s. And sure enough, he had a plan for victory when he walked back in to the field. Steelers made some changes in the line up, stopped the passing game of Bengal’s and viola. Bill Cowers not only erased 17 points deficit but went on to win the game by 31 – 17.

That is the power of a Coach, the power of adjustments, the power of clear thinking --- that is the power of a HALF TIME.

It is the half time that stops the game irrespective of scores and gives both teams to think it thru, Strategize and make changes. It is the half time that offers one last chance to get back into the game before its too late. It is the half time that some time decides the ultimate winner.

Some time life does not offer the luxury of having a great and inspiring Coach or a Team Manager or other monetary perks. It does offer a Half Time though. Some time it comes in the form of a Hospital stay for a surgery. Some time it comes from being alone and in pain, lying in bed rewinding and forwarding some important scenes of your life.

The SECOND HALF begins on Monday.

God Willing scores will have to change in a hurry!!


Oh well....!

For You !

If you're lost and feel alone
Circumnavigate the globe
All you ever have to hope for too

nd the way you seem to flow
Circumnavigate in hope
And they seem to lose control, with you

Everyone of us is hurt
And everyone of us is scarred
Everyone of us is scared
Not you

Your eyes closed
Your head hurts
Your eyes feel so low

Everyone of us is scared
Everyone of us is hurt
Everyone of us has hope
For you (x10)

Last Night.......

The surgey was successfull and AL I am back home now. My freind Gandharv was present all 6 hours that I was at the Hospital. He took care of me and later took me to his house. I stayed there for a few days and asked them to drop me home as I waas feeling fine. More about that later ....Last night was special though. Last night this stanza from Faiz's potery was on my mind.

Raat yun dil mei teri, khoi hui yaad aai
jaise veerane mei chupke se bahaar aa jaae
jaise sehra mei hole se chale baad e naseem
jaise beemar ko be-vaj'he karaar aa jaae.

Jaise Beemar ko be wajah karar aa jaye ....!!!
