The Birthday Party :P

Date: 19th April, 2008
Theme: Flowers
Venue: K-226, Sarita Vihar, N. Delhi
Guests: Selected few :P

Now, I am not going to reveal what was on the menu but you won't be wrong if the guess is "great menu", hihi.

As the theme of th party was 'Flower', I was quiet intrigued what the reaction would be with some of my guests. It was either a flowery shirt, dress or a flower. Here is a few reaction:

"Flowers??? Oh no, no way..I have never hold a flower. I don't want to come if I have to wear something flower".

"Flowers? oh no..that's a big problem"

"I really want to go but the main issue is that the theme is 'flower'".

"Flowers? Alright, since I do not have flowery shirt, I will bring flowers."

The good news is that all my expected guests turned up..with flowers, of course.

I got a call right after midnight. A call from Illusionaire in the morning and his report on the Basketball tournament was funny but I was too sleepy at that time to laugh..(but I really find it funny and interesting about the tournament).

I was busy right from the moment I woke up; preparing the house, shopping and searching for flowery dress for me to wear. After a long tiring and no time to rest day, we finally began to settle down.

With guests coming in and food to cook, I was quite busy.




There was, of course, the dance. Funny thing was that we danced to whatever was played..from Akele hai, to kya gham hai. (from QMSQMT) to If you love he..hahahaha



And last but not the least..the birthday girl..hahahha

I have recently read about Priyanka's (Gandhi) visit to her father's assassin and I have to say that I have been deeply touched. I kept questioning myself if I will ever be able have such thought and the answer is mostly negative. The line I which truly touched me and want to learn is -

I don’t believe in anger, hatred and violence and I refuse to allow it to overpower my life.

I wish I have the strength to say the same :)

Religion


This is going to be quite a short update.

I have been thinking about different religions.

We all believe that there is one God, who is in heaven but why are we so against each other?

Which one is the right religion? when we feel and know that the religion we hold on to is the right one.

Religion is built by faith and this is what keep us moving, disciplined us, makes us do what is right and wrong, avoid to fall into sin: but what if the other one's religion is fake, will he/she be punished at the end? when they give their best while alive?

What will happen to the devotees if the religion he/she hold on to was the wrong one? What good is her sacrifice?

Self Appraisal...

I received this in my email the other day; I like it so much that I decided to share it out here :)

A little boy went into a drug store, reached for a soda carton and pulled it over to the telephone. He climbed onto the carton so that he could reach the buttons on the phone and proceeded to punch in seven digits (phone numbers).

The store-owner observed and listened to the conversation:


Boy: "Lady, Can you give me the job of cutting your lawn?


Woman: (at the other end of the phone line): "I already have someone to cut my lawn."

Boy: "Lady, I will cut your lawn for half the price of the person who cuts your lawn now."

Woman: I'm very satisfied with the person who is presently cutting my lawn.

Boy: (with more perseverance) : "Lady, I'll even sweep your curb and your sidewalk, so on Sunday you will have the prettiest lawn in all of Palm beach , Florida."

Woman: No, thank you.

With a smile on his face, the little boy replaced the receiver. The store-owner, who was listening to all this, walked over to the boy.

Store Owner: "Son... I like your attitude; I like that positive spirit and would like to offer you a job."

Boy: "No thanks,

Store Owner: But you were really pleading for one.

Boy: No Sir, I was just checking my performance at the job I already have. I am the one who is working for that lady I was talking to!"

This is what we call "Self Appraisal"
