Things to do - 2013

Everyone has objectives. 
Mine are kept to a 5 month period. 
However for 2013, I have these ahead of me.


  1. Shoot over 100 images I am proud of. 
  2. Write a minimum 8 posts a month here. I surely can do better.
  3. Have a meal with someone different every month and learn something over a conversation. Nothing can teach one more than listening to another over food.
  4. Write letters - old fashioned I know but its the best way to speak. To whom? That is a good question.
  5. Go back and frame all my stamps in a showcase worthy fashion. Over 5000 stamps is no joke.
  6. Shoot a portfolio of the women important to me.
  7. Start cooking. Two of my siblings can. I believe I can too.
  8. Go climbing - so close yet so far from the Himalayas can never be good. Also, adding Rajasthan to this bit since its a part of my childhood and life learnings.
  9. Be selfless - make a donation towards something. I help with charity but can do better.
  10. Take another holiday with the siblings. I did it last year and it was worth it. Plan to make this an annual affair.
(Chose the image above since it stack multi-colour bowls. Similar to the list here)

'Tis a good strong list.

You a philatelist? Had no idea! Seems like a fabulous hobby. You must most definitely showcase them well.

All the luck for 2013, Akshay!
Yep, since class 3 or 4 I guess. Still do. : )

Rear view records

If I say a lot happened this year it will be quite the understatement of sorts. 
Life took all kinds of turns around bends that could give anyone a heart attack and also had its share of astronomical highs that one had never anticipated. If you saw a number 9 of the Indian cricket team score a ton in a test last week, my life felt the same too. Although, the speed at which it came was akin to a ton in a T20. 
Never been the one to complain but this year seemed to be one of the toughest in terms of a million things such as the health of loved ones. However, it was one of the best years of my life too when you see all that the universe conspired to throw at me.
Not one to trust in religion, I have consistently believed that life's zeniths are not far behind from its dreariest lows. It reminds me of an old post that I wrote on up being the only way to go when you are at the bottom is up. That has been followed to tee and I am proud to say so.

Immerse yourself

There is this strange familiarity water has.
When you are in it ensconced and alone you aren't really alone for its swallowed you whole within itself.
A lot like love.
Its all around you when you are in it.
You see though it and its still there - everywhere.

8 Insane (But True) Things About Weddings

Claimer: This series of published facts are based on true events and a nights of a horrid experience. Resemblance to most weddings is, was and will stand true for all weddings that are yet to happen too.
Weddings in India are almost like an airport battling a backlash of passengers of 20 delayed flights. 30 year old's are arguing at the bar (for free food coupons at the airline counter) with spirit akin to Kejriwal before he came to power, teenagers are strewn across the floor/halls (mostly around charging points) & the seniors are lying in flat beds (occupying as many as possible and blocking some for an unaccounted passenger too). Mothers and wives of the 30 year old are eyeballing stewards for larger helpings of the 'daal makhni or butter chicken' (airports only serve bone dry sandwiches and tea that is flatter than gujrati thepla though)Air hostesses and ground support staff resembling over dressed chirpy friends/cousins and college friends of the bride who find th…
