How do I feel ??
Well...... For starters I will be among the unemployed youth of India for the next two years :( So the thought is actually a little scary ....But I've heard of *great* things about FMS :) So looking fwd to that as well..
Will miss Deloitte very much...No.. not for its work, but for all the friends I am going to miss :(
And a *few* people in particular :-((
A group of alumni, highly established in their careers, got together to visit their old university professor. Conversation soon turned into complaints about stress in work and life.
Offering his guests coffee, the professor went to the kitchen and returned with a large pot of coffee and an assortment of cups -porcelain, plastic, glass, crystal, some plain looking, some expensive, some exquisite - telling them to help themselves to hot coffee.
When all the students had a cup of coffee in hand, the professor said: "If you noticed, all the nice looking expensive cups were taken up, leaving behind the plain and cheap ones. While it is but normal for you to want only the best for yourselves, that is the source of your problems and stress.
What all of you really wanted was coffee, not the cup, but you consciously went for the best cups and were eyeing each other's cups.
Now if life is coffee, then the jobs, money and position in society are the cups. They are just tools to hold and contain Life, but the quality of Life doesn't change. Some times, by concentrating only on the cup, we fail to enjoy the coffee in it."
Don't let the cups drive you... Enjoy the coffee instead !!

Fast forward now to April '06. I weigh 93 Kgs. Just about 7 kgs more than what is optimum for my height
How did I achieve this ??
Had I got a rupee for every time I answered this question during the last few weeks, I could have retired with my earnings right now
I aint no fitness guru and I don't want to sound like one…I hate VLCC and their ilk..dont ask me the reason but some how I find them yuck ...
What you are going to read below is a simple, practical technique to lose flab….I did it and lost around 21 kgs in 3 straight months….I need not mention that to achieve this you require "dedication" and "fire" from within.. Atleast I did not have to bother in this aspect (More on this some other day !! )
1. Walk for 3 hours on Saturdays. Does it sound scary..Chill dudes and dudettes….Start with an hour's walk…after two weeks make it a two hour walk…and then make it a 3 hour's walk…Push yourself…You will be amazed to see the limits of ur body
2. Walk for 3 hours on Sundays…Same blah blah.
3. Every morning spend 15 minutes doing some or the other form of exercise…Make sure ur tummy size is given its due attention during this time .
4. Avoid Rice at all costs..apart from the regular oil, cold drink, sweets, icecream blah blah !!
That's it..Its as simple as that !!
I followed the above 5 points and lost almost 2 dozen kilos in a period of 3 months.. Thats a fact !!
So go ahead buddy…Get your motivation…and your reeboks..and hit the road……
Its really worth the effort…TRUST ME !!

Couldnt Resist posting this :)
A young second generation Indian in the US was asked by his grandmother to explain the significance of "Diwali" to his younger brother, this is how he went about it...
".......So,like this dude had,like, a big cool kingdom and people liked him. But, like, his step-mom, or something, was kind of a bitch, and she forced her husband to, like, send this cool-dude, he was Ram, to some national forest or something... Since he was going, for like, something like more than 10 years or so.. he decided to get his wife and his bro along... you know...so that they could all chill out together.
But DUDE, the forest was reeeeal scary shit... really man...they had monkeys and devils and shit like that. But this dude, Ram, kicked ass with darts and bows and arrows... so it was fine. But then some bad gangsta boys, some jerk called Ravan, picks up his babe (Sita) and lures her away to his hood. And boy, was our man, and also his bro, Laxman, pissed... And you DON't piss this son-of-a-gun cuz, he just kicks ass and like...,all the gods were with him.. So anyways,you don't mess with gods. So, Ram, and his bro get an army of monkeys.. Dude, don't ask me how they trained the damn monkeys... just go along with me, ok... so, Ram, Lax and their monkeys whip this gangsta's ass in his own hood. Anyways, by this time, their time's up in the forest..and anyways...it gets kinda boring,you know... no TV or malls or shit like that.
So,they decided to hitch a ride back home... and when the people realize that our dude, his bro and the wife are back home... they thought, well, you know, at least they deserve something nice... and they didn't have any bars or clubs in those days...so they couldn't take them out for a drink,so they, like, decided to smoke and shit... and since they also had some lamps, they lit the lamps also... so it was pretty cooool...you know with all those fireworks.. Really, they even had some local band play along with the fireworks..and you know, what, dude, that was the very first, no kidding.., that was the very first music-synchronized fireworks..you know,like the 4th of July stuff, but just, more cooler and stuff, you know.
And,so dude, THAT was how, like, this festival started
His GrandMother fainted.
Its a new season for many things i guess, its raining cats and dogs in Hyderabad this year. The MBA admission season has started and what more within a couple of days the Indian cricket season is gonna begin. Hurray !!
Currently listening to "Seasons in the sun" by Westlife
