Merry Christmas

Let me start this blog by wishing you all a very Merry Christmas.

"But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah, are by no means least among the rulers of Judah; for out of you will come a ruler who will be the shepherd of my people Israel." Matthew 2

The angel said to them (the shephard), "Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger."

Thanks be unto God for His wonderful gift: Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God is the object of our faith; the only faith that saves is faith in Him.


I was not able to go home to spend Christmas with my family so I decided to at least make the best of it and bought a 6foot tree.

Here's a picture of my tree:



It looks less colorful in picture than I tought...but I really like my tree. Some of the decorations are from a friend (...thanks again, Jitesh:))

Here's one of my favorite Christmas songs (by John Lennon):-

So this is Christmas, And what have you done
Another year over
And a new one just begun

And so this is Christmas, I hope you have fun
The near and the dear one
The old and the young

A very Merry Christmas
And a happy New Year
Let's hope it's a good one
Without any fear

And so this is Christmas, For weak and for strong
For rich and the poor ones
The world is so wrong

And so happy Christmas
For black and for white
For yellow and red ones
Let's stop all the fight

A very Merry Christmas
And a happy New Year
Let's hope it's a good one
Without any fear Happy Christmas


So, to close this entry, here's a pic of me with the Tree :)



Wishing you all a Very Merry Christmas!!

God Bless and Peace


Jesus Take The Wheel

She was drivin' last Friday,
On her way to Cincinnati,
On a snow white Christmas Eve.
Goin' home to see her Mama an' her Daddy,
With the baby in the back seat.
Fifty miles to go an' she was running low,
On Faith and gasoline.
It'd been a long hard year.

She had a lot on her mind,
An' she didn't pay attention:
She was goin' way to fast.
An' before she knew it, she was spinnin',
On a thin black sheet of glass.
She saw both their lives flash before her eyes:
She didn't even have time to cry.
She was so scared, she threw her hands up in the air.

Jesus take the wheel,
Take it from my hands,
'Cause I can't do this on my own:
I'm letting go.
So give me one more chance,
To save me from this road I'm on:
Jesus take the wheel.

It was still getting colder when she made it to the shoulder,
An' the car came to a stop.
She cried when she saw that baby in the back seat,
Sleeping like a rock.
An' for the first time in a long time,
She bowed her head to pray.
She said: "I'm sorry for the way I've been living my life.
"I know I've got to change, so from now on, tonight,

Jesus take the wheel,
Take it from my hands,
'Cause I can't do this on my own:
I'm letting go.
So give me one more chance,
To save me from this road I'm on:
Oh, Jesus take the wheel.

Oh, I'm letting go,
So give me one more chance.
Save me from this road I'm on;
From this road I'm on;
Jesus take the wheel.
Oh, take it, take it from me.

10 things I hate about you

I hate the way you talk to me, and the way you cut your hair.

I hate the way you drive my car.

I hate it when you stare.

I hate your big dumb combat boots, and the way you read my mind.

I hate you so much it makes me sick; it even makes me rhyme.

I hate it, I hate the way you're always right.

I hate it when you lie.

I hate it when you make me laugh, even worse when you make me cry.

I hate it that you're not around, and the fact that you didn't call.

But mostly I hate the way I don't hate you. Not even close, not even a little bit, not even at all.

(..from "10 things I hate about you")

Party at Lovely Obsession

Location: Lovely Obsession,
Sahara Mall, Gurgaon
Day: Thursday
Date: 7th Dec, 2006
Teams: Glitterz (my team) with Ace (my old team)

Prologue:

So, it was a team party at Lovely Obsession and two teams combined for this party. Earlier, I decided not to go to the party as I wasn't feeling so good and I have no enthusiasm to go. My TL tried to talk me into going to this party but I decline. In fact, I believe that the two TLs were quite irritated with my decicion and whatever they say won't let me change my mind.


The day of the party:

Then, came the day of the party. While the rest of my team went to the office early (so as to give the full production hour), I came in my normal shift, ie 12:45. When the time of the party came up, Sherry (my trainer who is a manager now) called me up and order me to go to the party and won't take NO for an answer. So, with Subhendu..headed for the party.

Since it was still quite early, there was no crowd but my colleagues. To my surprise, my colleagues were quite happy to see me :).

One of the most important thing when you enter a disc is the music. The moment I enter the disc, the music was good and so I thought "hey, its not gonna be as boring as I thought it to be". And So, the first thing I did was asked one of the guys to get me a glass of beer...while the party continues, loll.

No one dance at first...we all were enjoying whatever drinks we have..and the food too. Their french fries was awesome but I don't like their chicken and mutton. And yes, to my surprise, I really enjoyed the paneer...it was good...and I realized how much I love capsicum.

Here's the first photo taken that night:


Yes, that's a glass of beer in my hand. And yes, I know I dont look so fresh..but remember that I went straight to this place from work *grin*.

Then we started to dance...since the music and the sound were good, it was great to shake your body, lol. I cannot recall when was the last time I really really dance and enjoy myself till this night. I really danced a lot and enjoyed myself.......oh..makes me realized how I love to dance.


Poor guys...no girls to dance with. So, in a group of around 30 poeple, 3 were girls and later 2 more female came (from the ops) and with more male, lol. Poor poor gues but I am sure they really enjoy themselves too.

Here's another pic before we started to dance-



So, left the disc at around 1:00 am (I think). It was a good party, great music, good DJ, good food and excellent drinks (:D). And no comment on the crowd..hahahaha...

Bible verses for today

Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts as you did at Meribah, as you did that day at Massah in the desert, where your fathers tested and tried me, though they had seen what I did. For forty years I was angry with that generation; I said, "They are a people whose hearts go astray, and they have not known my ways." Psalm 95:7-10 NIV


__________________

Take care, brethren, that there not be in any one of you an evil, unbelieving heart that falls away from the living God. But encourage one another day after day, as long as it is still called 'Today,' so that none of you will be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin. For we have become partakers of Christ, if we hold fast the beginning of our assurance firm until the end. Hebrews 3:12-14 NASB

And He (Jesus) said to him, "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. Matthew 22:37,38 RSV

World Aids Day

I almost forgot that today is 1st of December till I went through my blog and check the number of entries I have made in November..that was when it struck to me that today is 1st Dec. I don't know what I was thinking earlier when Jim send me an image file as he said - for the sake of World Aids Day. I simply accept the file.....and thats it.....I guess its just one of those days *sigh*.

So, as it is World Aids Day, here's a red ribbon from my side...



This is the 19th World AIDS Day, the 25th year since the first case of AIDS was identified and 10 years since the formation of UNAIDS, the U.N. arm formed to fight the virus.

I often asked myself how will I feel if I found that I have an Aids? I might soung a bit ignorant here but the thought always gave me a fright...for me its like - how long am I gonna live..another year may be...

I always admire the spirit shown by soma Aids/Hiv patient for not losing their enthusiasm or spirit after knowing that they hav Aids.

Here's the image file sent by Jim "For World Aids Day"
