I liked this movie very much... people might think that its kids movie, but its not.
The locations that are shot in this movie are too good... almost kinda mesmerizing.
Also the graphics effect is too good... I loved the story in this movie.
One can go for it as a completely entertaining one...

It has got a love story, action scenes, comedy, witches, king and his sons... etc etc.
Good to watch :)

Someone to watch over me

Theres a saying old, says that love is blind
Still were often told, seek and ye shall find
So Im going to seek a certain lad Ive had in mind

Looking everywhere, havent found him yet
Hes the big affair I cannot forget
Only man I ever think of with regret

Id like to add his initial to my monogram
Tell me, where is the shepherd for this lost lamb?

Theres a somebody Im longin to see
I hope that he, turns out to be
Someone wholl watch over me

Im a little lamb whos lost in the wood
I know I could, always be good
To one wholl watch over me

Although he may not be the man some
Girls think of as handsome
To my heart he carries the key

Wont you tell him please to put on some speed
Follow my lead, oh, how I need
Someone to watch over me


Wont you tell him please to put on some speed
Follow my lead, oh, how I need
Someone to watch over me

Someone to watch over me

PS: This song made me cry and the lyrics are awesome. It shows how lonely can a woman be and her longing for love. Beautiful song...

funeral services

Today while I was coming to office in bus, I saw something interesting.
Near the traffic signals, there was a Tata Winger standing.
Initially I thought its a BPO cab or something.
But I was wrong. I read the board on it as
(Founded by Ft.....)"

I read it thrice to confirm what it meant.
Does the organization really meant it when they named it??
Would someone go to heaven if those services are taken?
Whats so special about the funeral treatment there??
I had upteen questions popping up in my mind during the 30seconds wait near the signal.
Well... i found it funny enough to laugh at myself.
We do bad/good deeds... so karma should be our part...
how can others give us moksha??

anywayz thats it for today....

Visit to Jain temple at Kolanpaka

Visiting a jain temple was one of the best things I have done recently.

How does the temple look like?
Here is the image...

how to travel??
Catch any train that goes towards Kazipet(Warangal) which has a halt near a station called "ALERU". Roughly this place is about 80kms by road and 1hr travel by train. Early morning car drive would be ideal. Well... journey by train is also excellent provided you get seats in the train. One can have mesmerising view of the fog and greenery during the travel.
One can get autos to get to the temple. They charge about Rs.10/- per person.

History of the temple:

Some of the beautiful snaps:

This is the side look of the temple

This is the main templee entrance with two elephants welcoming us :)

This is a beautiful marble design on the floor inside the temple

one of the side view of the temple

a prototype of the temple intended to be built i guess... i didnt find out much details

And thats me... looking bit funny with bag and frens stuff :P

I guess you all liked the images... one can plan for a one day trip for this place and come back. Breakfast is free in this temple. Make sure that you reach the temple before 8am in the morning. The main puja starts at that time and its good to see... The main Mahavir statue here is blue in color and very elegant...
It took 12 years to reconstruct this temple itseems... The sculpture and the statues are very beautiful in this temple. Very minute details are also caught in these statues...
This temple is quite different compared to most of the Hindu temples. There will not be any noise... chanting of mantras all the time... people pushing each other to have a look at god...
This place is beautiful with coconut trees and shade.
Also there is a museum itseems... but I didnt have a look at it.

Verdict: A place worth visiting to avoid the city chaos.

Today(22-dec-2008) I was lazy enough to come to office... but there was some kind of freshness in my heart...
I got into a fully crowded bus near my house... that stupid driver has applied sudden break... I was about to fall down and regained my control...
I was irritated for few mins... and someone tapped my shoulder...
I turned to look at the girl... obviously it had to be a girl :)
She asked me " Are you deepa??"
I was staring at her for few seconds and replied "Yes. I am deepthi... i mean deepa".
All my relatives know me as Deepa... no one knows my name is "deepthi".
I love my name as "deepa" than "deepthi".
She asked "Do you remember me?? I am your navipet relative."
It took few mins to recollect this girl... I met her family exactly 15 years ago. I just know her grandmom...
But this girl recognized me in an instant even after 15 years...
maybe my facial features are not changed much and maybe because i still look like a kiddo...
gosh!!!! that was stupid...
anywayz she told me about all my relatives and that she is working here in Virtusa company.
Was glad that my family also has enough software engineers :D

But that simple gesture of recognizing me and smiling at me made my day...
i am very happy today.... btw her name is also "deepa"...
I guess life is being happy in that moment and happy in the present...
and that makes a perfect living
I could get that feeling...

a simple thought

A simple thought came to my mind...
i guess i read it as a quote somewhere...
but i dont remember when and where..
there is a very fine thread called friendship...
for some reason the thread breaks into two...
and later you try to mend it by tying a knot...

when you run through the thread again...
oops.. the knot still remains hurting us...
thats what happens when friendship is broken...
it never remains the same...
the sweetness is gone... the trust is gone...
you can never be the same with that person
i've experienced the same few days ago

gosh!!!!! the relationships are so complicated and stupid.

Kill Bill vol1, 2

WHOOOOOOO.... Its an awesome movie series... the best thriller movie I have ever seen.
I loved the story... the theme... the music... the characters... the action... everything...

The Bride - Uma Thurman at her best in martial arts... her physique suits the character very well in this movie...

Bill... He is an old fellow... perfectly suits the character of an masochistic killer...

I have seen the same directors movie "pulp fiction"... but i couldnt appreciate it becoz i couldnt understand it :(
but this one is cool... the way he tells the story is amazing... For sometime I was scared of all the blood bath in vol1 and resented it... but I was focusing mostly on Ms.Thurmans acting...

A must watch movie among the thriller categories... all these days i was watching all sorts of mushy movies and this was quite different... adding to my favourite list :)

good - bad/ right - wrong

Recently I had a tiff with one of my good fren. I was wrong at some point of the argument. I have apologized sincerely. The other one has also done some mistake in an emotion... which i found it to be very bad... only creatures who are completely out of their body control would say such things/do such things.
But otherwise if you have an insight into that persons life and behaviour... there is no doubt that that the persons character is good and almost flawless. But he is not ready to accept his mistake.

Well... I stopped talking to that person completely. I asked him to say sorry. But he is not willing to say that. As far as my conscience goes... it tells me that I did the right thing by not talking to him.
He has done many good things.
But does one bad act overlook all the innumerable good things he has done???
How far am i correct in this judgement??
I am not able to understand completely.

Well the whole point of thinking in me is... whether one bad act overlook all the good things a person has done in his/her life??? Is it okay to forgive and compromise for frenship??? What is the guarantee that such type of incidents will not happen in our frenship later?? Do we have to kill our self-esteem and go ahead for such relationship??

I dont have answers to all those questions. I am still trying to find answers for them by having a fight with my mind and heart.

My fav poem

Whenever I close my eyes to stop staring at this bad world
I see you....only you and nothing else my love
The world with you is so much different and blissful
I knew my prince created this world only for me
Everything over there is soo perfect for me..
The nature in all its glory, the kind of chores,
The attitude of people and above all YOU...just so perfect
After all its a dream I know
But deep inside I believe soon its gonna be true."

PS: I wrote this in good olden days!!! I want them back. I am sick and tired of the present.

Platy - the cuty

Her smile is a million dollar smile. She doesnt make noice, she doesnt cry much.... she does eat silently without giving pain to her mother. She knows only one word now "thatha...thatha" :)
I am longing to see her again... She is the real platinum in our lives... and there the name goes platy :)

Myself n Shivani

Recently I took 3 days off from office to get some mental peace. And I was successful in that.
I have met my beautiful, naughty, chatterbox niece Shivani.
She would call me "pinni" as I am her pinni :P
I went to attend my cousin's marriage which was our common point of meeting.
There she was always beside me talking like a chatterbox.
She was singing all telugu songs, dancing to the tunes of the orchestra that was organised in the reception. And then she asked me a question
"Pinni camera teleda nuvvu?"
I answered, " no... marchipoyanu... hyderabad lo undi"
Shivani "Pinni, you dont know english?"
I answered in english " I dont know english"
Shivani, " I know all english,maths,science,social, all subjects!!!!!!!!"
For a moment I have opened my mouth and was watching her. My other cousins were laughing like hell for her instant reply.
And she promised me to teach english as a crash course within 48 hours.
Btw Shivani is still in UKG(upper kinder garden)
We were very much occupied with her cute words during the marriage.
The next morning when we had breakfast, she came to me and sat on my lap.
She watched me for 2mins or so... then started saying in telugu
"pinni... nuvvu appudu baaledu... ippudu baagunnavu"
I asked her, " eppudu baalenu?? baalenu ante enti??"
Shivani, " anitha pinni pelli lo baalevu... naaku teliyadu anthe"
I was again shocked for her small observations and memory power.
She is damn intelligent... has very good grasping power also... she knows all shlokas my heart... she knows all the SaiBaba bhajanas...
I am nothing infront of her with regards to all these matters...
Anywayz... I love her...
And I adore her sister Platy(pet name) who is just 8 months now...
Will tell platy's story in my next blog... :)

One more novel to my fav list

Doctors by Erich Segal is a very beautiful novel. I loved the character of Barney Livingston in the novel. I would die to have a best friend,philosopher and lover boy like him in my life. Most of the girls would like his character in this novel.
One can easily understand the hardships undergone by every doctor in USA. Its also observed if one would watch the TV series "Grey's Anatomy".
A good novel added to my collection.

Worth of money - Adam Khoo(youngest millionaire)

Some of you may already know that I travel around the region pretty frequently, having to visit and conduct seminars at my offices in Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand and Suzhou (China). I am in the airport almost every other week so I get to bump into many people who have attended my seminars or have read my books.

Recently, someone came up to me on a plane to KL and looked rather shocked. He asked, ‘How come a millionaire like you is travelling economy?’ My reply was, ‘That’s why I am a millionaire.’ He still looked pretty confused. This again confirms that greatest lie ever told about wealth (which I wrote about in my latest book ‘Secrets of Self Made Millionaires’). Many people have been brainwashed to think that millionaires have to wear Gucci, Hugo Boss, Rolex, and sit on first class in air travel. This is why so many people never become rich because the moment that earn more money, they think that it is only natural that they spend more, putting them back to square one.

The truth is that most self-made millionaires are frugal and only spend on what is necessary and of value. That is why they are able to accumulate and multiply their wealth so much faster. Over the last 7 years, I have saved about 80% of my income while today I save only about 60% (because I have my wife, mother in law, 2 maids, 2 kids, etc. to support). Still, it is way above most people who save 10% of their income (if they are lucky).I refuse to buy a first class ticket or to buy a $300 shirt because I think that it is a complete waste of money. However, I happily pay $1,300 to send my 2-year old daughter to Julia Gabriel Speech and Drama without thinking twice.

When I joined the YEO (Young Entrepreneur’s Organization) a few years back (YEO is an exclusive club open to those who are under 40 and make over $1m a year in their own business) I discovered that those who were self-made thought like me. Many of them with net worths well over $5m, travelled

economy class and some even drove Toyota’s and Nissans (not Audis, Mercs, BMWs).

I noticed that it was only those who never had to work hard to build their own wealth (there were also a few ministers’ and tycoons’ sons in the club) who spent like there was no tomorrow. Somehow, when you did not have to build everything from scratch, you do not really value money. This is precisely the reason why a family’s wealth (no matter how much) rarely lasts past the third generation. Thank God my rich dad (oh no! I sound like Kiyosaki) foresaw this terrible possibility and refused to give me a cent to start my business.

Then some people ask me, ‘What is the point in making so much money if you don’t enjoy it?’ The thing is that I don’t really find happiness in buying branded clothes, jewellery or sitting first class. Even if buying something makes me happy it is only for a while, it does not last.Material happiness never lasts, it just give you a quick fix. After a while you feel lousy again and have to buy the next thing which you think will make you happy. I always think that if you need material things to make you happy, then you live a pretty sad and unfulfilled life.

Instead, what makes me happy is when I see my children laughing and playing and learning so fast. What makes me happy is when I see by companies and trainers reaching more and more people every year in so many more countries. What makes me really happy is when I read all the emails about how my books and seminars have touched and inspired someone’s life. What makes me really happy is reading all your wonderful posts about how this BLOG is inspiring you. This happiness makes me feel really good for a long time, much much more than what a Rolex would do for me.

I think the point I want to put across is that happiness must come from doing your life’s work (be in teaching, building homes, designing, trading, winning tournaments etc.) and the money that comes is only a by-product. If you hate what you are doing and rely on the money you earn to make you happy by buying stuff, then I think that you are living a life of meaningless.

(Excerpt taken from a blog posted by Singapore 's youngest Millionaire - Adam Khoo)

Note: This stuff is sent by my good fren. Thanks sudha :)


This words means "The act of killing someone painlessly (especially someone suffering from an incurable illness)"... also called "mercy killing".

Today morning in the bus I was reading "Doctors" novel. There it talks about mercy killing.... A doctor Seth, kills his brother Howie as he was suffering from brain damage.

How I wish it wasnt just about illness or something... it would be good if one kill oneself if they doesnt want to live anymore... many people suffer from depression and stress... they should make a law that a person can go ahead and do such thing...

and for terrorists and criminals and corrupted politicians... killing them should be mandatory instead of giving imprisonment for 5-7 years.

Interpretation of dreams

Well... last night I had a stupid dream... and the experience was quite shocking to me...
In my dream the dream goes like this...

I was near cyber gateway(that is where my office is at present)...some unknown man attacked me... i was trying to defend myself... i got a knife from somewhere(god knows where) :(
i made a scratch on his shirt with that knife... and then he run away from me...
i was happy.. but at the same time, he threw some sharp object at me...
that hit right in my right hand making a 10cm long injury( i could tell the exact length because i know where the scratch was exactly)... I had sharp pain in my right hand... i fell down on the ground shrieking with pain...
at the same exact moment....
i got up...
i had too much pain in my right hand...
i was wearing a turtle neck shirt made of wool...
i pulled up my sleeves to check if blood is oozing out...
but nothing was wrong...
my hand was perfectly alright...
but it was still aching for atleast 15 mins even after i woke up completely and was in my complete senses...

i couldnt understand this fact... there is some pain in my dream and i felt it in the present...
people say that if you dream something during the early hours of morning... it would come true...
i was dreaming this dream at around 5:30am ....
would this come true??????????????

I would like to read Freud's Interpretation of Dreams to understand dreams properly...
My hunt for this book will go on now....

Barney Livingston

I am already in love with the character of Barney in Doctors novel. I just read 258 pages over the weekend. I am yet to discover many things about the story.
