Dec. 25th Wednesday

7.30 a.m. - Woke up with a prayer to thank GOD that Ghazini is at last releasing (including a thanks to the Mumbai HC also).

7.45 a.m. - Woke up DC (a friend) with a msg. I know it was very stupid, but did not have the energy to call him up and wait! Sent a msg. Mu duty over. End of waking up story.

8.00 a.m. - Attended to the morning elementary functions.

8.30 a.m. - Called up other members of the First-day-first-show movie gang for an update on their status. 2 were still sleeping soundly. Gave them a gud dose of verbs ;)

9.00 a.m. - Waited for breakfast with bated breath. Show timings - 10 a.m. and that too in Patel Nagar and I m still @ home having breakfast :(

9.15 a.m. - Reach Dilshad Garden Metro Station. Nearest to my home.

9.20 - Catch a train to Kashmere Gate.

9.35 - Run like hell to change lines @ Kashmere gate. In b/w all this nonsense of running hither thither, the phone does not stop ringing. sigh...

9.45 - Alight @ Rajiv Chowk to catch another train. Frantically calling up friends to ask as to which train to board next. Grrrr...plz tell me who booked the tickets...@#$%^&*

9.50 - Boarded the next train. Two of my friends are already in the same train as I but am unable to meet them coz of the rush.
10.15 - reach the station near Satyam Cinemas. We three run as if Police is following us or we are following a thief (No, i think we were followed by a dog). Phew!!! I hate exercising in the morning. Guys, I m gonna kill u!

10.20 - Reach the Multiplex. "I am not a terrorist" "Plz let me go inside" "We can do the checking later". But who listens dese days to the plea of an innocent first-day-first-show-aamir-movie-lover...Oh! Gosh! only if I had owned a theatre. But on a second note, it is right also. Our security is in our hands only. If we do not cooperate then it is we who suffer. If the security is beefed up in public areas like this, it is for our own safety. And we do not stop blaming the authorities for being so negligent.

10.23 - Atlast I am in my seat which is the worst seat I have seen in my movie history. Its rocking like a baby's craddle. Aaargh.... we have already missed the starting scene of the movie.
Now that I am seated, Aamir is mercilessly beating up someone. let me watch the movie in silence.

Intermission - Till now the movie is awesome with some glithces here n dere. But for Aamir, everything is acceptable.

1.30 p.m. - Irresistible, incredible, awesome, action-packed, romantic, emotional...I m searching for more words. he...he...he....

I thank all the guys who made this movie event happening and rocking!!!

Danger on Road...Happened on June 3rd

I was jolted out of my sleep by the screech of a was the car I was travelling in, that had given me the jor ka jhatka dheere se lage wala jolt. I was sleeping soundly in the front passenger seat (an activity undertaken everyday to & fro the office), when the driver suddenly applies brake and I m thrown forward in my seat (sorry! I wasn't wearing my seatbelt!). I glanced at him with sleep-driven eyes but instead of being sorry for his act he was ponking his horn loud for the cars ahead of us to get lost...and he was also staring at something...I took cue n followed his gaze n 2 my horror saw a dog writhing in pain on the road just 2 metre ahead of us. It was then that the driver told me the reason for the sudden brakes...a car in front of us had ran over the dog and had left it to die in pain. The dog was in so much pain and fully covered in blood that I just couldn't take a look at it the second time. Instantly a prayer left my lips to God to help that dog and to save his soul. But the dog had had his share of destiny written already n I believe HE had penned it this way.

I couldn't just muster up the courage to look at the poor dog rather help it to the side of the road. It may be because of many reasons.
I cannot see a lot of blood flowing (ironically I wanted to be a neurosurgeon @ one point of time which is history now :(
I didn't have the guts to pick up the blood drenched dog in my bare hands.
I didn't have the courage to have my car stopped and call for ambulance.
Maybe I was afraid that if I stop the car n get down to help, wat are my cab mates who are sitting in the car going to think. That I was stupid enough to help a DOG n make them late for the office.
I didn't even have the courage to call up an animal ambulance.

Shit!!! man. When I think of that day, I get goosebumps. But I really wish I could have been of some help to a dying animal.
I do not know what karma had been done by the dog, but no animal or human deserves to die in this manner.

Why is it that life is so unfair with some n very fair with the others?

Why is that everything has been written for you? Your destiny is pre-destined for you and you are just a puppet come to play his part???

Why is that life has so many questions and so little answers?

Nvertheless, I believe God has sent me on this Earth for a purpose...not only me but everyone in this world is here for a purpose...and we need to fulfill that purpose in order to make our existence worthwhile.

I do not know what all this stuff that I have written relates to the life we live, but I do know one thing. Life is a very precious gift by God to any living being and if you show respect to life, it will surely reciprocate.

Farewell time

They who go feel not the pain of parting;

it is they who stay behind that suffer.

just a thought. shifting to a new pilot team within the office on the 15th.
