Damsel in dismal mood :(

I am in a very bad mood. I do not feel like working. Want to go home and lie down on my bed with my face buried in pillow.

Good reads

Some books are so good that they leave an everlasting impression. Here are a few quotes which I like very much.

Shantaram -
Gregory David Roberts

"Happiness is a myth. It was invented to make us buy things."

"Luck is what happens to you when fate gets tired of waiting."

"News is about what people do. Gossip is about how they enjoyed doing it."

"Every virtuous act has some dark secret in its heart; every risk we take contains a mystery that can’t be solved."

"I don't know what frightens me more, the power that crushes us, or our endless ability to endure it."

The Bridges of Madison County - Robert James Waller

"In a universe of ambiguity, this kind of certainty comes only once, and never again, no matter how many lifetimes you live."

"I’m not sure you’re inside of me, or that I am inside of you, or that I own you. At least i don’t want to own you. I think we’re both inside of another being we have created called ‘us’.”

Eleven Minutes - Paulo Coelho

"At every moment of our lives we all have one foot in a fairy tale and the other in the abyss."

"If I must be faithful to someone or something, then I have, first of all, to be faithful to myself."

May Blog bless you :)

This is my 100th post. And am so happy today :)

I blogged first in October 2008.
I am so overwhelmed thinking of those moments when my inner most thoughts got a medium to flow. Happy moments when I was on cloud 9. Sad moments when tears just rolled by. It has been a superb journey of self-introspection, making new friends and taking out time for myself.

I owe it all to this modern day-technology ... yippee!

Introducing Redial :)

It is fun to be in Client Servicing. Tests your ability to deal with all sorts of people....Apart from being work-centric it makes you people-centric. It is usually assumed, that in ad world (esp in C.S) one has to be manipulative and dominating. But it's not the case actually. Sharpness at work and understanding the psyche of Client is the key.

My job is to "get things done" as per clients requirements keeping in my mind the creative aspect and innovation (which is not necessarily in the same order!) And keeping a client happy is not so easy like keeping your friends / family happy :)

They can be more demanding than a boyfriend (ah..if u ever read this, just kidding!)

To reason out is one thing but being stubborn about something to the extent that a NO means no is really unprofessional and frustrating.

There is this is one person who has become almost part of my life now.....

Let's refer this person as

Redial. Because I very much believe that my no. is the most dialed and redialed no. on her phone :)

We share an amazing work relationship. It's more of a cat fight and who wins the share in the end and whose word is finally agreed upon.

The only intolerable thing she does, is this noise on phone when something goes wrong...and how does it sound ..."kaain kaain kaain kaain" can go deaf!

I have observed that she is less expressive when it comes to praising when her work is done well.

Anyway, I respect her and so does she. And we are used to each other now.

A day without her call is actually something missed :)



Just made a new label for my blog.

Collection of some beautiful songs that i keep on humming in different listening to them....

Desi Tadka

Just love this one...

Melody from Swinging 60s....

Aage bhi jaane na tu

Aage bhi jaane na tu, peechhe bhi jaane na tu

jo bhi hai, bas yahi ek pal hai

Aage bhi jaane na tu

Anjaane saayo ka raaho mein dera hai

Andekhi baaho ne ham sabko ghera hai

Ye pal ujaala hai baaqi andhera hai

Ye pal gawaana na ye pal hi tera hai

Jeene waale soch le yahi waqt hai kar le puri aarzoo

Aage bhi ...

Is pal ke jalwo ne mehfil sawaari hai

Is pal ki garmi ne dhadkan ubhaari hai

Is pal ke hone se duniya hamaari hai

Ye pal jo dekho to sadiyo pe bhaari hai

Jeene waale soch le yahi waqt hai kar le purii aarzoo

Aage bhi ...

Is pal ke saaye mein apna thhikaana hai

Is pal ke aage hi har shae fasaana hai

Kal kisne dekha hai kal kisne jaana hai

Is pal se paayega jo tujhko paana hai

Jeene waale soch le yahi waqt hai kar le puri aarzoo

Aage bhi ...

Aage bhi jaane na tu from Wakt
