Silent expressions. No words. Got a chance to capture it. Let me know what you think this conveys.

P.S: clicked from E51, please excuse the resolution. I was getting late for office, did not have time to use my Point and shoot, and didn't want to miss these cute kittens :)

Well before i start, i would suggest you visit this site to understand what fmylife means. This site is hillarious, and i have been having loads of fun reading it. Well, little did i realise that i would be soon contributing a post to this site :(.

It happened to me on one of my recent trips to delhi. One of my delhi friend happened to visit mumbai, and the trip was summed up by her in just one word "CRAPPY". I think i can sum up my recent trip to delhi as being "CRAPPY" too. The flight took off a bit earlier than scheduled, and flight captain thought it was the right time to score some brownie points "all passengers we will reach delhi before time and blaah blaah". We reached 45 minutes late...huh.

Reach delhi and the airport greets you with warnings.." If you want to be safe take prepaid taxi". Well i thought i should add to it " We cant protect you, you are on your own here-delhi police". Ok so i took a pre-paid and after travelling for 10 minutes from the airport, the driver decided to park the taxi behind a long queue at a CNG station. This was the first time ever i was cursing delhi for shifting to CNG. Delhi still does not have enough CNG stations. Anyways to my surprise the taxi driver decided against filling up the tank with CNG, and I was breathing a sigh of relief at this time. It was already midnight. Well the driver had actually just delayed his decision, and decided to park his taxi at the very next CNG station that was just a small detour according to him. It was now 12:30 midnight, i was hungry. Taxi driver decided to eat "chole kulche" while i was cursing him from inside the taxi.

12:40 am: finally we were back on road. The moment i thought that the worst was over, yippie we have a flat tyre. Cool. And we are exactly in the middle of a long stretch of road, and what more the jack does not work. WOW :D

12:50 am: One auto rickshaw in sight. I had to fight with the taxi driver to actually pay the full fare to the auto rickshaw driver. Finally, or so i thought, that i will reach home in peace.

1:00 am: Like they say "we plan, and god laughs". The auto driver had bandage on his hands. He was driving at only 10km/hr. Damn i was trying to reach home early eat dinner and sleep :(.
I asked him what happened. He told me last night he was attacked by few people with knives. Awsome :), and he was attacked somewhere near my area.

1:20 am: Auto driver tries to take a short cut, after driving for two kilometres, we find that the road is closed. I was now really angry at this guy, and now i made sure he was taking the route i wanted him to.

1:30 am: finally i reached home. A full 1.5 hours ride from airport to home (In normal traffic it takes just 45 minutes). And hey it is not over yet, auto guy was asking me for another 20 rupees as he got me home safe and sound. FMYLIFE.

Matty Mate  

Posted by ani_aset in

Mate..Bring it on...attitude..muscles..well i think that was all Mathew hayden was wearing up his sleeves as he walked inside the mumbai airport. A six+ feet giant, he looked more like a wrestler than a cricketer I tell you. Yes, got a chance to see him at the mumbai airport. Contrary to what he looks like on the field, here was Haydos obliging the chai wala to get a snap clicked. One of the airport staff got a snap clicked and was running around the airport shouting " I got a snap clicked with Hayden". The other i day i saw him cooking tandoori roti on a tv show too. Well these aussies can surprise you all the time isn it ;). This was a pleasant one, i'm sure even aussies love the passion indians have for this game.Well happens, Indians are cricket crazy you see.

Yea we are :( " I couldn get my snap clicked as i was bloddy busy getting my security check done "

Attachment and detachment  

Posted by ani_aset in , ,

What drives people to commit to someone?
What makes people to cheat?
What makes people who are cheated , to make a new commitment with the cheater?

I have not found the answers to these questions, because so far i have been living in an idealistic world, where i considered that a commitment once made should not be broken.

Repeated betrayls have forced me to now beleive that appropriate strategy to deal with such cases is to ,"Not attach with anyone,stay detached.It is a good safeguard against the pain".

There is a flipside to it too, "Whats life without taking some risk,...If there is no risk there is no excitement".So if you want to have a piece of some action,stay put,dont back out. Slowly you will learn from the cheater, all the moves and you will be safe.

So crux lies in experiencing detachment, and moving back to a "Detached attachment" where yu stop feeling the pain of detachment.

A very confusing topic,i am glad i tried
