would the future be like this??

Darwin proposed the theory "survival of the fittest". In order to have a comfortable life in future what would be the strategy that would be followed??


I got a thought... supposedly in future, man discovers some way to find out what are the possible kinds of problems(u call it diseases or psychological ones) one can have by just studying at the DNA... what would happen to the man kind??? One would be rated based on the intelligence as well as this factor. One will decide about their kids based on those 2 factors apart from love. Its a depressing thought.


But someone has actually captured this thought in a movie called Gattaca. Yes!!! Its damn true. Its set in which year I forgot though. But a nice movie for science fiction. It also captures one major thing called the determination and the will power of a man. As long as you are brave at heart and have courage.... no physical disability can deny you from fulfilling your dreams. Strength is not in the physical structure of a man but in his spirit!!! I know few guys who have proved such thing like Stephen Hawking, one of the great scientist.


One more thought... if there is a thing called rebirth and god gives us an opportunity to chose which life you want to take...who would you want to be??


PS: I would like to be a TREE.

Wake up Sid!!!

Wake up Sid!!! This is my recent movie. Unfortunately I couldnt watch the movie in a theatre.
So the other day I bought a DVD and saw the movie. Its an AWESOME movie. Ayan Mukarji put all the efforts to portray all kinds of emotions in this movie.


I liked the movie for various reasons. Firstly its because of showing how the teenage kids treat their parents and how desperately parents try to be friends with them. The responsibility factor is shown in a very meaningful way and not going to the extremes of it. Also understanding your dreams and how to work on them and fulfilling them. Something like photography for Sid, which was a passion and he turned it into his work life.

The last reason is the relationship between Sid and Ayesha. The girl being elder to the guy. In our society its not an accepted factor. Is it really wrong for the girl to be elder than guy?? In my opinion I really dont think so as long as you have good mutual understanding levels and maturity to handle the relationship. Even in our puranas, it says that Sita was elder than Ram. So whats the big deal??

Even our real life hero like Sachin set us a good example in front of us by marrying Anjali who is 6-7 years elder than him. What matters most in a relationship is the commitment and carrying it forward for years together. Society rules are framed by us for our convenience. If it doesn't accept now, its good to break them and not follow it. Looking at the other side of the coin we know that during age olden days, girls were married to old men as well. Many of the social reformers changed our society rules. I feel in the future generations to come, the age factor would diminish and importance would be given only to the love and understanding of each other.
So what do you think?? Do you really feel that age is an important factor ruling the relationships these days?? Do feel free to express your opinions.

road,car and bike story

Few days back I was travelling with my dad on bike on the roads of hyderabad. It was around noon and the area through which we were going was full of traffic.The area is Mehadipatnam.

My dad is a very cautious driver unlike me. He was explaning me how the city has changed through years and was showing his favorite places. I was wearing my new goggles which my brother got it from USA(showing off :P) and mind you it was sunny also(so not 100% show off).

I heard that someone was honking from behind our vehicle for long time. Actually I was focusing on what my father was saying. I looked behind and saw that a swift car fellow was honking continously. Actually there was no free space on road to give side to him. There were two fellows in the car. The one sitting beside the driver seat rolled down his glass and was saying something.

And then I shouted back in telugu..."aagatleda??"(which means "cant you control"??)
I know the usage is very bad.. but that car fellow was damn irritating and creating enough noise pollution.
He replied,"what the heck did u say??".
I said," didnt you hear?? And can you see if there is enough space for us to drive and give you side. No right?? then why did u honk unnecessarily??"
He gave a confused and shocking expression.
Then I said quietly," next time use bathroom and go for drive!!!!". At that moment I remembered Vimmuuu saying stories about bathroom incidents.

I had to cut down my laughs and imaginations.

The next moment my dad was saying something. I realized at that moment that I was thinking deep inside my mind saying all those things to that car fellow. And I came back to the real world.

I gave a nasty look at that car fellow and were on our own. Next time I will definitely teach such fellows a good lesson :)

process of untagging myself - part2

Sometime back I wrote a post regarding my childhood memories. I am going to continue writing rest of the stories. They might not be so interesting but I guess for timepass one can just read them :P

4. stories stretched
Being the eldest one in my family, my brother and sister used to listen whatever I said till 5th standard(later they realized how stupid they were :P). We were living for rent in a very big house which had lot of open place with a big neem tree in front of the house. During power cuts and summer, we used to have fultoo masti. We used to have one wired chair in which 3 kids can easily fit... we used to sit in that and my sister used to request me to say one story... the main action now starts... I used to actually start a fairy tale kinda story and never end it... add all fictional characters and say this and that and king and kid and villain and nothing else... I used to give lots of twists and turns and mean while my bro and sis would have long back forgotten the actual context. After some time my brother who would have actually got bored would say STOP PLEASE!!!!! And my mom would shout from inside the house to come and sleep :)
(now i cant even think of creating a cock and bull story)

5. Nail polish and noise
Every year there used to be a mela at our village and my grandpa used to buy me whatever I want. One such time he didnt come and sent grandmom along with me to the mela. I dont remember exactly, but i think my cousins have also accompanied me to have fun. My grandpa gave me Rs.3 to buy something at mela and I didnt spend. I went to a near by shop in my village and got nail polish which has the yuck dark pink color(i hate that color now). I applied nail polish to all my cousins and the next day I took it to my school :)
I think I was in 2nd class at that time, and shown it to my frens during a free period and the smell of nail polish was evident in my class. We girls were making hell lot of noise and that too talking on top of our voices. Next moment one sister(ours was a missionary school...we had only sisters) came to our class and shouted at everyone and caught me red handed with nail polish. She took it with her and made me stand up on the last bench :(
It was so damn embarrassing...She gave me back that nail polish after school hours. That was the last stupid thing I did at school.

6. Greeting cards
Being 3 kids in a family, we used to share pencils,pens and sketch pencils. When I was in 3rd standard, I loved using sketch pencils for whatever things. The habit continued and I learnt how to make good designs with pencil and apply colors with sketch pencils. At that time I got an idea of making hand made greeting cards with those designs and giving it to classmates on their birthdays. My brother and sister always used to ran out of sketch pencils and fight with me. Doesnt matter :) I was selfish enough to keep the best designs with  me and give stupid ones to frens as cards. One day I lost the book in which I kept all those designs. And I stopped making designs. Now I cant even make a good mehandi design for my hand... I wish I had practiced more and enhanced my skills :(

7. Dictation
When I was in 5th class we used to have dictation in different subjects. Those marks used to be added in the mid term results. At that time there was tough competition between me and another girl(Sheela Reddy) in our class. Most of the time she used to beat me in mid term exams. And I used to beat her in the finals :P
One day there was science subject dictation. 20 words were told by the teacher. I was happy that I would get  20/20. But somewhere I had a doubt in one word. That word was RECEIVE, whether the 'e' would follow 'i' or 'i' would follow 'e'. We both girls were discussing and realized that I made a mistake in that word. I wrote 'i' followed by 'e'. She got 20/20 and I got 19/20.
And by god, after that exam and till now I never forgot the spelling of that word. Even now when I write that word, I remember this incident and thats how I remember the spelling of that word :(
hmm... pretty girlish!!!!

8. knocked out with chalk piece
Our school is a typical girls high school with only teachers who are women. No boys are allowed in school. When I was in 10th class we had an exception. We had a male teacher who taught physics. He was 6ft tall and pretty handsome and nothing less than a hero. Most of the girls used to go ga-ga after him at school. His class used to be around 3:10pm and many girls used to eagerly wait for his class(teenage girls you see). He used to hate talking in class and not even whispers were allowed. As I was an average studying girl at school, I used to sit in the last but one bench in class. One day it so happened that one stupid girl in my class had a doubt and she used to sit in front of me.
She turned back and asked me the doubt. The next second a chalk piece hit my head. I was shocked as it was a direct hit. And realized that it was hit by sir for talking. I didnt even open my mouth to clear that girls answer. No words exchanged after that. The most funny part is no one even thinks of talking in his class(obviously most of them were staring at him instead of listening to him). I still remember him as one of the best physics teacher ever!!!
Thats how my school life ended :)

And now my memories also end here!!!!

damn you!!!

Actually the other day few of my frens(only girls) were talking about marriage and stuff like that...
and then this question came in my mind and I remember reading it in one of the telugu lesson in school days..
All fair complexion guys want fair complexion girls for marriage. Even wheatish and medium complexion guys want fair complexion girls for marriage. Even dark guys want fair complexion girls for marriage. Then who want the dark complexion girls???

Damn you guys!!! I am referring to only those who has such opinions and thoughts.

There is a great director Vishwanath in telugu movies. For one of his movies one man wrote beautiful lyrics for a song.. they are as follows translated in english :
Isn't a brown colored calf not born from a white cow?? And isn't a white calf not born from a brown colored cow?? Why do you think so??
I know those two lines make a lot of sense. And I wish people realize that fact!!!
What if girls started rejecting dark complexion guys?? Where will they go and die??
Anyways sometimes the fact of turning down the girls turned out to be true. Few of my frens told me such incidents. Dont know when the thinking of parents and some of the guys will change??? Will it ever change if they are some of the deep rooted facts implanted into our heads during birth itself???
I hope someday our people  and society change for a better living purpose...

process of untagging myself - part1

Recently I have been tagged by Smita which was started by Vimal.
Let me start it...

1. Locking up myself
               When I was young, I grew up with my grandmom for most of the time. My grandmom tells me now that I used to tie her pallu to my wrist very hard so that I never get separated from her. And one day I went to one marriage with her. At that time I was just 4 years old. When all my relatives were busy in marriage preparations, some kids started playing some games and I joined them. I donno exactly what happened but I got locked myself in a room. I mean I literally put the latch and I couldnt open it for long time. All of my relatives started looking for me and found me locked in a room which I couldnt open. So they used a long stick and put it through the window and managed to pull the latch. Thats how I got out. My grandmom tells this story and laughs for sometime. Even my relatives remember this incident and say that I had created a mess at that time :)
A nice memory for me!!!

2. Hiding out from home
               My brother and myself studied in the same class from UKG to 10th class. Only difference was that he studied in a boys high school and I studied in a girls high school. It was in 2nd class that my brother took a group photo with his classmates and teacher. My brother was kinda looking very cute in that picture sitting beside his teacher. I took that snap to my school to show to my frens and I lost it. I was really scared to go home and tell mom that thing. I searched all my books and bag hundreds of times only to not find it in my bag. So I went to most of my frens house to find out if my mistake the picture was with them... but alas!!! my bad luck... i didnt find out... i was crying and I sat under a tree back in my school again. Aaya's(working ladies) at my school were trying to find out what happened with me. I didnt open my mouth. I finally decided to search my bag once again. Hurrey!!!! I found it... It was right in my bag...
I jumped with joy for a while....and happily went home. That photo is still at my home. I laugh at the incident sometimes for my silliness. Even now my mom doesn't know about this incident.

3. Fun with frens at my village
          Let me tell you guys, I was the most active and restless kid when I was young. Never used to stay at house for a minute. Always I used to freak out with friends and one incident turned out to be horrible. Let me explain... For some festival, our family went to my village. My dad was not at home. I am really really afraid of my father in those days and if he is at home, I am the most silent kid :P else i am the queen of my life :P
For the same festival, one of my frens family were planning a big puja in the near by village. We should go to that village walking through the fields and farms. I was ready for that in an instant. I went to that place along with my frens. Imagine walking with frens in a line on the edges of fields enjoying and singing songs... Absolute delight :D And I walked for about 3kms and reached that village.
I actually thought that the festival process would end in 2 hours and then come back by afternoon. But that was not so... it was actually 6pm and I was tensed and scared. I was forcing their parents to drop me home as soon as possible. But it didnt happen and I was imagining the worst things in place for me back at home. Atlast I came home at 8pm and realized that most of the village people were looking out for me and they even sent some persons to find out in the neighboring village. I got good shuntings from my mother, my grandmom and my uncles. I never did like that again.

So those are my sweet memories. I still have to write more... but i will write them later as I dont remember most of the stuff now :)

Have a nice weekend folks!!!

PS: we have a long weekend in hyderabad as monday is a holiday here :D

drama at bus station

Recently my brother has come from US on vacation.
My mother has prayed to some gods that she would visit them if he is same and doing well...
so the time has come for my mom to visit all those places with my brother and including us(my sister and me)
So we decided on the temple as Vemulawada temple.
Its about 3 hours from Hyderabad and its my moms native place as well...
so we decided to go by bus as its safest.... as its the Karthika masam...there would be huge crowd... i am assuming ppl would know about it... i will explain about it later...

so we reached the bus station at 6:30am in an auto and immediately i saw a bus going to that place...
my brother forgot his USA mannerism and stuff...and ran after the bus to catch some seats... you know indian crowd...its horribly difficult to enter a bus which has a single door :)

the driver... i mean bus driver said that the bus is completely full and asked us to catch another bus... mind you guys... the frequency of these buses is very less...finally we got one seat in that bus and my sister got into that bus...and i was looking at the other buses boards to find if there is any other bus...

i saw another bus and saw that there were enough seats for all of us... all three of us got into the bus...and it started moving..and we realized that our sister is missing.... damn!!!!
my brother was shouting...whistling to the conductor and driver to stop of the bus...and we realized that my sister doesnt even have a mobile(my brother is using hers...as US ones doesnt work here)...damn!!!!!
finally he stopped the bus after covering some distance... my brother ran to get my sister from the other bus...
he has searched everywhere and she is not found... i got scared and confused and tensed...
i got down the bus and told my mom to sit in the bus...
in front of me the previous bus(in which my sister was there) was leaving and there is no sign of my sister....
this time my mom got tensed... she was almost in tears at the thought of not finding her youngest kid :(
she got down the bus and was behind us for searching my sister...we searched for her for couple of mins...and cursed for not having another spare mobile... communication has become so important these days...
by god... i dont remember how were the days without mobile phones...and how ppl managed!!!!!

finally my brother found her...  my stupid sister went outside to make a call to us...and early in the morning none of the telephone booths were open...and she even has decided to go back home and sleep again.. lazy girl!!! almost took the life out of us....

now the turn is of the bus conductor(the one in which we thought of travelling)... he couldnt afford losing 4 passengers... so he turned his bus and came back to pick us up :)
that was very sweet of him and selfish of him though...
when we all four were entering the bus.... you shud see the look on the fellow passengers faces...
i couldnt make out the emotion whether it was anger(for making the bus run late)...shock(we are in the bus again)...relief(we found our sister).
we all didnt talk for a while in the bus... and later me and my sister cracked jokes on the incident and prolonged the incident and laughed like hell....

well... after the incident i realized how important its to be together and how difficult on the thought of losing one of the member...
touch wood... i m really lucky to have a sweet younger sister who does everything and anything for me :P

inevitable changes....

Before writing this post...  I was actually reading some of my favorite blogs.
I was laughing for sometime... after that I have realized that I haven't been in touch with some of my friends.
Hold on... I wasn't in touch with them.. I am confused now... let me explain...

Friends who really love you and care more about you, never think twice whether he/she is busy... just one sentence is enough to talk with them... a simple "hi" is also good enough to convey hell lot of things...
I am glad I got few such friends... I have a huge gtalk list where most of them are online.. but very few ping me... initially I used to bug people when a group of friends or colleagues you can say separated from the parent company. But when you dont get the same kind of response you expect... you lose the enthu to talk to them again....thats what happened!!!!
 I guess people's priorities change once they move to another place... make new friends and actually forget some of them... Indifferent attitude is one which no would want to get used to...
Life can be compared to a bus... you stop at every stage... few people get into it...and few people get down...those who remain till the end are your real friends.
I dont know who said this statement... but its 100% correct.
Those who decide to move away were/are never really your friends(can i still use that word??) I want to accept the fact and move on... and this is one inevitable change(for good i guess).

Lessons learnt

Currently I am working for a start up company.
A start up company gives lot of exposure to technology and values of life.

There are so many learnings involved while working with a small group. These become part and parcel of our life. I have realized that they are very important and adds much to your character and gives strength in future for any activity.

I wouldnt say I am perfect in all the aspects. I have got my own short comings and still have to improve on them. I would like to share my learnings here...

1. Being part of small group is like living in a family under the guidance and protection of managers.
2. Communication between peers and managers is vital. Otherwise things will be screwed up very badly...(personal experience baap!!!)
3. Never assume anything for yourself and never take anything for granted. Question every answer you got and question any question you have... thats the thumb rule.
4. You learn responsibility here... not that we dont know about it... but in a different fashion. Taking ownership and being the sole identity of a single module... you will be the king and queen for that kingdom kind :P
5. Never get personal things into official work. It screws your image infront of others and relationships with frens would be spoiled.
6. Lot of scope for personal and professional development. New technologies and learnings will be added to our bucket everyday. Its upto us how we use them.
7. Definitely one will learn how to work on the timelines and faster completion of work. Also will know how to complete day-to-day activities.
8.Never allow your ego to come in between in work. Listen to others and then proceed to work. 

On a lighter note.... those were all my learnings and they are gonna still increase in the future. I think most of them will be followed in every company as such. But still our company is unique.
We work... and We celebrate and We are trying to make a difference.


PS: writing this post made me feel good.

movie-dream-mania

As it was weekend, on Friday I saw an old movie "The ten commandments".
Its an awesome movie. No doubt about it.

On saturday afternoon I saw the movie "HellBoy" while having lunch.
Its also another good movie. Somehow I liked that weird character.

Now comes the interesting part. After having nice and yummy lunch prepared by mother, I slept and started dreaming.
Moses came in my dreams...Remember... Bible... Moses...The protaganist in "the ten commandments" movie.
He said, "You have sinned by telling lies and not doing tasks given by your mother and father, Deeps".
I said, "Is it?? I know that. And isnt it quite human??"
We both were looking at each other for sometime.
My inner self thought, Is he testing me and reading my thoughts?? Let my brain be blank for sometime.

After exchanging some looks, I said, " OKAY. I was wrong. Isnt it impossible to live a life without telling lies??"
Moses,"You saw my movie and after that you are talking like this?? How dare you??"
OOps... I didnt mean to make him angry though...

Then came HellBoy. I knew I love him fighting monsters and killing them.
I asked him slowly giving him a chocobar,"can i join your army?? I am a diehard fan of your stunts and I swear I will not stare at your horns and tail!!"
HellBoy," Kid!!!"
I thought, " kid huh!!! how insulting!!"
I, " Ok.. go on"
HellBoy," I cant take you, enough members on my crew. And I like doing my job alone!!!"
I,"You have actually rejected me!!! How rude...get lost and go to hell"
HellBoy," Kid, you actually donno what hell is like!!!"
I have all the surprise,shock looks on my face with my eyes rolling!!!

Then I heard my mom calling me to have tea. Got up to see that hot tea is being served..
So that was the effect of watching weird movies. After that I took the resolution of not watching TV and not starting my computer.
I was successful at one(didnt start my computer) but definitely I couldnt resist watching TV.
After 4 hours of struggling I started watching TV again :D

Saw "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" movie and "Armageddon" in Star movies.
Good lord save me from this movie-dream-mania!!!

Blog tease

hmm... My frens gang at office came to know that I write a blog and update most of the time about lotus pond.
Now this is the reason for teasing me... how??? let me explain...
the other day I was standing on the terrace of my office and sipping coffee. Suddenly I noticed that there is a tall ladder with orange color spots on it. I took a closer look at it and realized that its fungus.
Then the hungama started....
Rolee.. " I know you are gonna write about it in your next post... take a pic"
Rats..." cool... so you got one more object to cook up with!!!"
Ravi and Bindu..." Common...deepthi woh bhi likhthi hain!!!"

Whenever I say," wow.... great location and amazing thing!!"... my frens are always ready for pulling my leg and have few gags there :)
tell you frankly... I enjoy that... I like laughing and making masti with them... thats how my evenings at office are going with.

While I was enjoying all this blogging tease... I got some brilliant idea of bloggers meet.
Firstly I would like to meet Smita and Vimal.... to give them some good surprises.

To Smita... a kg of pure ghee sweets from Pulla Reddy Sweets house(quite famous in Hyderabad).... just to motivate her to eat them and think of aerobics and gym classes and write more funny posts happening there  and along the way :D

To Vimal... a recipe book with all the south indian varieties of dishes... and help him become the best JKG...and get appreciated by you know who!!! :D
Donno when it will be fulfilled!!! :(

Today I took few beautiful snaps at my office. Have a look at them :)
This is the one with reflection of tree in water and it turned out to be complete mirror image :)

 This is the one with sunset in water... I couldnt see the sun above the sky... but could see it easily in water :D

Have a nice weekend folks!!!

Before Sunrise and Before Sunset

hmm... both the phrases are movie names. They are pretty good movies.

All through the movie, I didnt get bored at any point of time. The conversation that the actors have is very interesting and natural. Its not like they took any effort to say them. I am not sure if they would have rehearsed anything at all.

The sequel is interesting for some reason. At the ending it makes you think whether you are optimist or pessimist or neutral when judging any situation.

Worth watching them. I became a fan of Ethan Hawke after watching those movies. He is quite natural and talented.

Getting used to...

We, Indians are very famous for it. We get used to things very easily.
Let it be anything... we take it for granted and move on. Most of the time we dont give a serious thought about why its happening and how can we control it or eliminate it.

Few examples are right in front of us.
1. Terrorist attacks.
2. Swine flu
3. Train accidents.
4. Communal clashes
5. Corruption.

Well this thought came to me when I was watching this movie called "A Wednesday". I know... I am very late in watching that movie. But I did. I realized that few things said in that movie are very correct. Especially about our system and society.

Let me talk about some current scenario. Swine flu. Because of Swine flu so many people are dying. Initially there was much hype about that flu. People were frantically talking about it and trying to take precautions. Now... its a common word.
Swine flu?? its already there... kya kare??
Thats what people say. Even though the death toll is increasing everyday, we are not able to help it.

Terrorist attacks... the most common thing in the Indian History. I have been hearing them since childhood. Did anything happen to prevent them?? People are again used to them. Especially in Mumbai life doesnt stop after any incident... let it be rains, floods, terrorist attacks, train accidents.

Sometimes i dont understand if "taking easy and granted" is written in Indians fate. We were ruled over by britishers for centuries together and didnt do anything good over there untill some greatest persons in the history were born. Even now are we waiting for someone else to come and change us?? Liberate us from the agony of terrorism and corruption??

I am really not sure what we think everyday when we get up and go out...but one should be much more responsible and truthful to make a better society. Corruption is one such horrible thing. I regret to say that my dad pays enough money to Government officers to get his work done. Many times i asked him to stop the work and complain agaisnt them. He is definitely tied up as there are many people who can take revenge for such acts of bravery. I sometimes feel that some of the youngers are more eager to earn money in less time by following wrong tracks. Thats what is happening in government departments. Lesser salary and more wants and means to earn money. A simple clerk takes Rs.2000 to print a government document with seal in a revenue department. Isnt it horrible??
Not sure where its gonna lead...and when will the mindset of people change.
Jaago jantha jaago!!! We want to see India as a developed nation in the world without terrorism and corruption in its belly!!! Lets strive for it....

When I turned nine

Its a movie name... the title is the movie name...
its a korean movie adapted from a best selling korean novel.
And its awesome... Its about a 9 year old boy who totally loves his mother and can do anything for her. And also its about the love of his life. A very cute girl who hates him initially and later likes him alot. And its mutual :)


The movie is very very touching and I cried buckets while watching it.
Its a movie worth watching. I watched it with subtitles in english and audio in Korean language and its a different experience. I would only understand that "kumao" means Thanks and "aye" means yes,Sir.
The acting skills of the kids is awesome. It shows the immense politeness and manners taught to kids in house and school. Watch it whenever you get time.
One such good korean movie is "My Sassy girl". Its also very very good.

Have a nice long weekend :)

non happening to happening

I always wanted my life to be happening all the time... I wanted my surroundings..blog...friends...to be happening one... never wanted boring and boring things in my life!!! I maybe over ambitious or something... i am not sure what of it...

september masti....

Wow... september... i enjoyed a lot during these 20 days. Had enough of masti that I haven't had in few months :)
Everyday I went to Lotus pond after work and enjoyed the mother natures creation.
Last weekend I went to Srisailam trip... which was nothing but awesome.
Also I visited few temples which I haven't seen in Hyderabad. One of them is the Skandagiri temple near PadmaRao Nagar,Secunderabad. Its the most beautiful temple of Subramanya Swamy and Durga devi.
Today I went to Barbeque nation restaurant and had fulto gala time :D

I want to say few things about Srisailam. Its a pilgrimage place where Lord Shiva resides. Its situated in between a dense forest and Krishna river. Actually at that place, Krishna river takes multiple turns and apears very beautiful. People say that Krishna river goddess is the most  proud and arrogant female in the purana's. Thats why I guess its so beautiful with different landscapes it has created during its journey. One should never miss the 80kms ghat road through the jungle. Its complete greenary and there are cotteges in forest as well. Btw the forest is called "Nallamalla forest". Recently our Chief Minister had died there in a helicopter crash.
I am attaching some of the snaps here.

this is the forest... we crossed all those mountains which you see in the snap... its a 80kms stretch... imagine... the largest forest terrain to be crossed... after 8pm vehicles are not allowed on that road...

I caught this beautiful sunset over there in my camera :)
 
This is the Srisailam dam over Krishna river where power generation happens






this is the view before the dam... with beautiful landscape.
One can plan for this trip over the weekend and enjoy the mother natures creation.

And not least my barbeque nation photograph... Our gang is having lots of fun in my new office. This is one such example for that :)

There was this African festival celebrations. We took part in that. The best part is that they were focusing on that theme completely and kept the mood all through the time. Also they took snaps of each and every table. They presented the copy of that photograph to us. Isnt it great!!! Thats why some of the restaurants are very popular..for their good hospitality :) Clockwise... me, Bindu, Rolee, Ravi and Ratnakar :)

Have a nice time folks!!!

more of my photographic skills...

I couldnt find any other great spot than the lotus pond at my office.
Today i visited the pond again... and got to know some more interesting things.. which i really missed in the first trip :D... lol i am calling this a trip...

did anyone to hear to the songs  of "TUM MILE" movie?? the title song is really cool... the music is by pritam and he is a copy cat... must have copied from somewhere... but try the songs sometime... the lyrics are good :)

coming back to my skills :P
attaching some pics again...

This is the pic of bamboo trees in the park... just wanted to take the snap with the sun peeking in between the trees.
 
This is the dirty fish thats there in the pond. I got really scared by looking at its fangs or moustache which it has. Its really huge and almost 50cms long!!!
 
 They have a family you know!!! We threw some bits of eatables and they were grabbing at a shot!!! they have a big mouth!! it can eat a laddu completely in a single time...Dangerous sight to watch them eating...
 
Atlast... some beautiful bunch of flowers... all those are on a single twig... really beautiful with 5 petals :) donno what they are called!!!
 
Next time i will chose a different place and get something unique!!!!

my photographic skills

they are naive... dont fall for the title :P
i am attaching snaps taken near my office.... btw... there is a lotus pond near my office and its the most beautiful during the evening times... around 5:30 to 6:30pm
Yesterday i happened to go there and took a walk around it... caught some pics...
here are they :)

This is the pond that i m referring to... its just surrounded by buildings and greenery. Awesome sight from my office building :)

This tree is completely bent into the pond... one can actually swing on its trunk. I have the snap me swinging.. but for other reasons i didnt put it here

There are lots and lots of fish in that pond... all sizes and even crabs also... if you make sound crabs run away into the water...the pond is over breed with many fish...because fishing is not allowed :P the fish is seen very clearly.
very neatly arranged stone planks... liked the arrangement very much...

This is my sab se favorite snap... the only dead tree you can find there in that park... it was around 6:30pm when i took this snap... and i didnt apply any effects to it and just came as beautifully as anything :)
god really took care in removing all the leaves and making it live for other nature loving guys to see it even after its death. Like me i guess :P

Happy teachers day

Oh my god!!! I completely forgot... today is teachers day and the birthday of a great president.
He is Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, a great philosopher. Every year 5th September is celebrated as Teachers Day.


I have couple of favorite teachers from my school.
One of them is Mrs.Daivaleela teacher. She is my favorite. She has encouraged me in all aspects when i was at school. She used to teach us Science subject. I remember the lab experiments she made us do... One of them was showing a frog heart and seeing some bacteria under microscope. I came out with flying colors with her blessings. I used to be the class leader and I had real fun. I had the privilege to sneak into all other mark sheets and find out who got the highest score :P

On teachers day we used to give our teachers off. We used to decorate the staff room with different color papers and flowers. And also write thanking note on the classroom board. They used to be very happy. Also we organized funny games for them. Once I even remember we had a fashion show...like walking on the ramp. It was amazing to watch our strict teachers wear funny attire.
BTW... my school was a girls high school. So it was lot more fun as it was only girls and girls.

After the entire program, secondary high school girls were allowed to monitor the primary school kids. Couple of frens in my class decided to go to 3rd class and play around with them and also act teachers :D
This all happened when I was in 8th class. We asked the kids to dance, sing, recite poems, act funny and enjoy. That day was lovely. We used to monitor every class for only one hour and exchange classes. In that way we gave our teachers complete rest on that day.
It was fun and I cherish all those moments.

Once again Happy Teachers Day!!!!

what makes you happy???

The question looks really dumb...
do you really ask it to yourself??
If someone would ask me, what makes me really happy??
I have a thousand reasons to name... so aint i reasonably lucky??
I guess sometimes we have to ask this and do those that makes us happy

What makes me happy??
  • shopping ( its quite obvious)
  • watching a movie and eating pop corn
  • driving my scooty
  • playing with kids
  • watching a cute baby's innocent smile
  • reading my favorite novel again and again
  • chatting with my best frens
  • watching my rose plants grow
  • watching the sunset while sitting on the terrace and sipping hot chai
  • catching sight of peacocks in the KBR park from my office building( its a good refreshment)
  • Listening to Ilayaraja's songs from my iPod(his music is awesome)
  • watching National Geographic channel(somehow i stick to TV watching this channel for hours)

From my previous post someone suggested me to do things that makes me happy... I realized its more important to make my facial muscles move by just smiling all the time :)
Of course being happy is very important for our day to go good and it would be a perfect beginning.

soooo... what makes you happy????

Tallest Ganesha in hyd

On monday I went with my mom and cousin to see the tallest Ganesha statue in Hyderabad. Every year its put in Khairatabad and till now i never got a chance to visit it. This time I was lucky enough. There was a huge crowd and thank god it wasnt raining at that time. Otherwise it would have been completely mess.
I am attaching some snaps here.

The height of the statue as people said was 48ft.

During this festival times, the ones who benefit most are the road side dwellers and vendors. They put small shops and sell toys, bangles, decoration items, balloons etc. This is just like a small mela and people accept it. I am okay with it as long as you are hard earning for a living in a decent way.
But I saw something worst happening there. In the name of begging, some cruel bastards who wanted to have money earned freely got lepers and fire accident victims to sit on either side of the road and made them beg. It was a horrible sight to watch. Some of the lepers were not bandaged properly and exposed all their wounds. There were also some persons begging with completely burnt out faces. No one was doing anything for them. My mom couldnt see the plight and started feeling nauseated. I had to bring her home. I gave the lemon rice prasadam to poor people there and got back home quickly.
Totally the experience of going to see God was miserable. Have any one saw Traffic signal movie?? It shows too much reality and I actually saw something more horrible.
I feel that this is not the world where everyone can live in harmony. The Darwin rule is re-written here. The stronger survives and rules the supressed who need not be poor. They can be disabled and diseased as well as being poor.
When God has given us good health and wits, we should use it for a better and higher purpose.
I think i have portrayed myself as a weak person by not doing anything for those poor people. i will overcome this guilt by helping in other means.

miss myself

I asked this question to myself, "do you miss yourself???".
The answer was very instant...
YESSSSSSSS...
I do miss myself very badly...
I miss my chattering at office...
coding and browsing at office...
i miss my happy reading...
I miss my hearty laugh...

gosh!!! why is this all happening to me??

i think its just lazyness... not wanting to do anything.
time for change...

mylist of movies...

I saw the date that i have last written a post and todays date!! its been almost 10-15 days that i wasnt in action. Thats pretty bad to my record...well thats what i thought...
so thought of writing something..that something is now movies...
i was at home for the past 3 weeks... the best way to spend time is either watch movies, television and go places. I did all the three...
Recently I saw some pretty good movies which i have downloaded and saw them.
here goes the list...

1. Ben-Hur - One of the greatest movies of all time. Its released in 1950's. But pretty good one. It got 11 Oscars and its worth it. Its one of the Biblical story and adapted from a novel as well. The horse chariot race is amazing in that movie. A must watch movie. There are many things to learn from that... like about frenship,love,passion and fraternity.

2. Casablanca - This movie is one of the greatest love stories. Some of the dialogues are punch lines. No one can ever beat them. The most famous line is " This is the beginning of a beautiful friendship". I just loved that movie. Worth watching.

3. Princess Mononoke - A very good animation movie. It conveys a strong message about environment. How should humans and plants live in harmony by allowing other creatures to live peacefully. I guess we should all understand the importance of forests in our life to maintain the stability.

4. Vertigo - One of the best movies of Alfred Hitchcock. Its a suspense movie and the direction is superb. One should watch for facial expressions, actions and the minimum dialogues present in the movie. Many hindi movies are adapted from this movie but they really dont have that essence and directors eye. Watch it fellows.

5. The good, the bad and the ugly - A typical cowboy movie. I thoroughly enjoyed the background music and its awesome. When Clint Eastwood is there as hero, it should be awesome. There are good punch lines and the difference between different kinds of people is shown in a very good way. Hats off Clint Eastwood!!!

6. UP - One more best animation movie. I loved the kid in that movie and also the bird. It says that there is no age limit for dreaming and making it come true. Its rated very good in IMDB. Go for it!!! I loved the thousands of balloons which are attached to the old mans house.

7. Sleeping Beauty - Another animation movie. Obviously girls love that movie for prince kinda style. Its fun to watch fairy tales with witch and fairies :)

8. The Secret Life of Bees - Dakota Fanning is now 14 year old and she acted pretty good in this movie. It has an interesting storyline and very deep meaning. hmm... worth watching again.

hmm... those are the movie reviews. Not sure how many have watched them and they are really interesting. Thats how my time passed and now back on track for office. And finally its raining in Hyderabad for few days and the city rocks now :)

A difficult judgement

Yesterday my fren forwarded me an interesting little story. Its really good one.
Just wanted to share it for fun.

In a small town, a person decided to open up his Bar business, which was right opposite to a Temple. The Temple & its congregation started a campaign to block the Bar from opening with petitions and prayed daily against his business.

Work progressed. However, when it was almost complete and was about to open a few days later, a strong lightning struck the Bar and it was burnt to the ground.

The temple folks were rather smug in their outlook after that, till the Bar owner sued the Temple authorities on the grounds that the Temple through its congregation and prayers was ultimately responsible for the demise of his bar shop, either through direct or indirect actions or means.

In its reply to the court, the temple staff and devotes denied all responsibility or any connection that their prayers were reasons to the bar shop's demise.

As the case made its way into court, the judge looked over the paperwork at the hearing and commented: "I don't know how I'm going to decide this case, but it appears from the paperwork, We have a bar owner who believes in the power of prayer and we have an entire temple and its devotees that doesn't."

mazaa on comments

It so happened that I was away from my blog for few days and I saw much of blogging happening in other frens sites. As usual i got up late on a sunday morning and started reading Smita's and Vimmuuu's blog. I do read comments sometimes just to get the funny part of them and others interpretations of the post. The comments in Smita's posts are pretty funny and good. Sometimes I enjoy the little fights that happen in comments section.
Adding more mirch masala, shuddh hindi words, pulling legs and what not are present in Vimmuuu's comments section. If you start reading comments, it never ends. There is definitely a war of words and one can thoroughly enjoy them. In the process one can easily timepass for about 2 hours. And also get to know lot of blog members who write quite interestingly. My mom got really angry when i was laughing to myself while reading all the posts with comments. Ofcourse post writing and comments are completely irrelevant in Vimmuuu's blog.
So guys if you really wanna enjoy... laugh for sometime... and then timepass... go for those blogs. Awesomely funny!!!!!

You want links right now?? There they go...
Vimmuuu... http://vlokam.wordpress.com/
Smita... http://books-life-n-more.blogspot.com/

I am not giving any other links here... as these two are enough to find hundreds of other links :)

I remember... there is one more best one where one can enjoy...

Note: Vimmuuu... i am giving publicity to ur blog here... u see :P
Smita... You dont need it though...its my appreciation u see :)

retrospection - finding about me

From the month of July to August, my day to day life has taught me many things. They ranged from taking care of my mother, filling the gap of my sister who went to study in other state,how to get rid of boredom, office tensions and health concerns.

I want to say a few lines about my north india trip. I went to Gwalior and Agra to have a change in my routine. It turned out to be horrible. Madhya Pradesh is completely a backward state which doesnt have proper transport facilities. Even though its well connected by railways, the stations are the most horrible places. There are thousands and thousands of house flies on the platforms. Looks like the platforms are not cleaned for ages and you find all kinds of rotten things. After looking out the conditions there, I was thinking that I dont have any right to complain about Hyderabad. Isn't it the best city ever lived and enjoyed. The city Bhopal doesnt even look like the capital of the state. I guess the politicians there are just sitting in big houses and having hukka. They are not considering the development of the state. The same is with Agra(Uttar Pradesh). Except for Taj Mahal I resented everything there. All most all of them are cheaters and want money earned by illegal ways.


I would like to tell the best part about my journey. It was the deep forest and small rivulets that were flowing through it. The rains made the forest look more beautiful with lots of greenary. Most of the tribals there are very simple in living with just a small hut and one or two cows and buffaloes. Most of the cultivation is done on the hillside. I forgot the name of that cultivation though. Its a very beautiful sight. If one wants to escape the monotonous city life, MP is the best place and also North-East. While enjoying nature, I would give up my luxuries.
Hmm... few lines turned out to be 2 paragraphs.


Now I am thinking what is the retrospection i was going to write???
I completed reading a novel "keep off the grass" by Karan Bajaj.
My verdict: Its not great. Its less than average. Though he added funny elements and eye-opener lines, I didnt find it amazing book to read.
I will continue in my next post.

Super duper memory

Today i came early from office as there was no internet and we couldnt do much work without it in our office. I gave lift to my Bindu and happily came on my scooty drenching a bit in rain.
As I reached home, my mom told me that we would be going to Warangal for cradle ceremony. God!!!Its really so tiresome to go on a week day and make stupid excuses to your manager for asking leave...
I have decided that I would say to my manager that I am sick( maybe cold with fever)
Obviously for that ceremony we need to buy a baby dress and a small finger ring of gold. We were prepared to go for shopping. And tomorrow morning we have to travel by train. Usually my mom has this vomit feeling during journey. So she takes some anti-vomit tablets. She asked me to buy them for sure. I told the name of it in house(which starts with E) and we went out.

After completing with the shopping, my mom asked me to buy the tablet.
To my goodness I couldnt recollect the name of the tablet.
I was trying very hard to recollect it... its on the tip of my tongue... but some how i am not able to spell it out....even write it maybe

I was saying to my mom that it starts with E.. but what is it!!!!!
I was scolding myself for being such a stupid girl...
I was recollecting what it could be...
just 1 hour back i was shouting the name of it in my house...
now its gone...
how could it happen!!!
Crazy...
stupid...
My brain is such a mess...
what the hell...
what can the name of it be...

Entacid... ( isnt it the name of some acidity tablet???? does it really exist)
Epitome...( isnt it some dictionary word for something else... and not an anti-vomit tablet)
Err... Eli... Esee...Edi...Eti..Enti...
I was trying to form all the words i knew which starts with E and sound like a tablet...
My mom was telling that its a very powerful tablet and that she would have written it on her hand...(you should have done it mom!!! now no helping)
I was doing all this while i was sitting in bus while coming back...
At last I have decided to ask the medical shop fellow to give me an anti-vomit tablet whose name starts with E...

At the medical shop:
Me, " Uncle, can you please give me two anti-vomit tablets whose name starts with E??"
Uncle, with a confused and dumb look on his face, " what name??"
Me," uncle the name starts with E!!!"
Uncle, " Domstal??"
Me, " uncle the name starts with E!!!!(cant u understand i am asking something else...u duffer)"
Uncle, " perei&&*&*&?"
Me, " ayyo...no uncle, the name starts with E!!!!"

My mom, uncle and we were staring at each other for few seconds.
EUREKA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Emiset...Emiset...Emiset!!!!
Thats it...Thats the tablet name... I could remember it...
I asked that uncle, to give the tablet Emiset.
He told that they are not available in his shop...
I thought for myself, "What a pity deepu...cant help..."

At last I took two domstal tablets and came home. They are as good as Emiset.
I realized that for those minutes my memory was erased. How could it happen!!! I used those tablets sometime back. Gosh!!! Our brain acts weird sometimes... it almost made me go insane today. I told my mom never to forget this tablet name in life. I can ditch her anytime with my memory...Err... stupid brain.

Visit to Osmania University

25th july 2009 I have visited Osmania University with my dad. My dad is the best guide available to know more about Hyderabad.

He has spent all his teenage days in Hyderabad. He knows in and out of Hyderabad. He has studied in Nizam College. That is one of the prestigious colleges in good olden days. Many of the great leaders, industrialists and entrepreneurs you see now-a-days are from that college.


I guess now you are wondering that I have spent a whole lot of 3+ years in Hyderabad and hadn’t visited it yet. You are right. I didn’t get a chance to visit that part of the city. All I know well is Secunderabad station to Begumpet to Hi-tech city(well…that’s where my office is :P)


Coming to my outing…Osmania University is spread across 2000 acres (quite huge). My dad compared this university to MIT of Andhra Pradesh, very good comparison in my opinion. Not by the looks and area, but by the vast courses handled from science to commerce, law to physical education and above all the good standards of course. The main building is completely made out of Nizam architecture. The domes you find there, the huge stone structures are completely amazing. It’s built of a single stone and nothing less than a huge fort. You have great stone steps to step inside the building. The moment I was inside the building, I was like a big ant in a huge palace. The dome in the middle of the building with huge chandeliers is completely breath taking. This is the first time I was visiting there, so I felt but students who are studying there might not feel so( I donno why I said it!!!).



This building is designed by a person named Ali, who has also built a hilltop house and surrounding lake near my village. The building was called Dog Bungalow(I really don’t know why it’s called in that way). So the name Ali Sager came to my village. That’s a different story I will tell about it later. The best part of the design is its symmetry. Somehow all the great kings of good olden days thought of this concept called symmetry. There isn’t a minute thing that’s not present on the one half and present on the other half. The walls are so high and properly ventilated that 10 girls like me standing on head of another could make it to the roof (:P). That’s a stupid comparison but absolutely true.



One more interesting thing about the building is that, the moment you enter it, you feel like you are in an air conditioned hall. It’s completely pleasant and cool. Maybe the high walls and huge windows keep it cool all the time. The classrooms are fantastic with good olden brownish furniture. You can see pigeons all around the building.



My visit had been fantastic with my dad being around and also my cuty scooty, explaining me good things about the college. He even showed me the hostel(Goutami hostel) in which stayed. He also showed me center for foreign languages. I saw German Dept there even though the guard didn’t allow us at first. He asked me to learn one foreign language for which I said I’ll think about it(not sure when its gonna happen).

So that’s it. I will come up with an interesting topic sometime later…maybe tomorrow.
