My tour- through photos....

"Yahan har kadam-kadam par dharti badle rang,
Yahan ki boli mein rangoli saath rang;
Dhaani pagdi pehane mausam hai,
Neele chaadar saare ambar hai...
Nadi sunehri, hara samundar, hai yeh sajeela,
Des rangeela, rangeela...des mera rangeela...
Des rangeela, rangeela...des mera rangeela..."

Well, frankly the WHOLE process of uploading these pics has been really tiresome. Heck, more than the tour ! I had close to 400 pics; and choosing a few to represent the kind of exposure I had was definitely an arduous task in itself. But the pleasure was mine !! Truely amazing places; don't you think?? I hope you've had as much fun watching these pics as I had posting them (and visiting these places!). Hope this 'motivates' you to go and explore India. And not like I claim to have seen the whole of India...but believe me, go check out the places.

So here's to Incredible !ndia ....

Long time

Hey there,
So finally the new year has come. Oh boy ! can't believe that one WHOLE year just went by. Time DOES fly, doesn't it? So here I am after quite a while. Not that there was a dearth of things to talk about. For instance, our North India tour; it was AMAZING !! I never imagined I'd see sooo much of India...the Taj, Golden Temple, Jallianwala Bagh, Wagah Border...and even SNOW !Truely a gratifying experience in every sense of the word !

And then there was the Hari Sri alumni; a 2nd reunion within 2 months (boy, we can't get enough of it!). And not to forget, the epoch-making execution of Saddam Hussein at the very fag-end of the year.

But every passing year is witness to metamorphosis- individually, in a family, in the society and in the world as a whole.The world is just not the same as you saw it when you went to sleep last night. It is upto us to make sense of the changes occuring around us; to grab the essence of the ever-changing life and to make the most of what we have. So as we turn another page in history, here's me wishing you all the best in life.
May Success be your mantra.
Hope- the wings on which you soar high.
Peace- what you pray and yearn for.
Courage- to see you through the weary paths in life.
Love- the only thing you believe in.
Experience- the one thing you can trust.
Wisdom- let each passing year add more to the account of wisdom.

Happy New Year folks !!!
