not necessarily true but the one in bold is....

There's always going to be people that hurt you so what you have to do is keep on trusting and just be more careful about who you trust next time around.
Don't waste your time on a man/woman, who isn't willing to waste their time on you.
No man/women is worth your tears, and the one who is, won't make you cry.
Don't try so hard, the best things come when you least expect them to.
Just because someone doesn't love you the way you want them to, doesn't mean they don't love you with all they have.
Maybe God wants us to meet a few wrong people before meeting the right one, so that when we finally meet the person, we will know how to be grateful.


my alter names

I feel so complete when I’m in the rain, I feel no sorrow I feel no pain,
There’s a calming sensation from grass to air, There's the sweet smell of the earth and life
The feeling of love, I will gain,
Because my heart falls open as I stand in the rain.

I love it when my friends call me by their own versions of my name. It is the acceptance and affection that is visible when they have pet names for you.

Two of my  pet names Rain and Denu.

Happiness

"Focus on the journey, not the destination. Joy is found not in finishing an activity but in doing it."
Very apt at this stage as I prepare for an uncharted journey into a new world, to realise the beauty of the journey ,to relish and enjoy, to not miss the woods for the forest. Destination sure would be good in case the journey has been pursued enthusiastically. Dedication would be the key to creating and nourishing joy. Hope plays the fuel.

Home Alone

Home Alone a season for all fun and party. The fun of cooking and managing to complete all my activities on time., just that I was not cooking and fasting @home and feasting @outside. 

It calls for great alertness and courage was the advise.
Sleep happily and laze around was in running my mind though disguised.

Kichidi was the only food cooked and then I had all the names to give others when asked.

Hyderabad-the land of Nawabs, Pearls, Biryani, Haleem and much more....

Hmmmm...Hyderabad.

All that comes to my mind is the mouth watering awesome biryani...the mutton biryani. Next is the tasty but scarcely available(in terms of number of days) rather ubiquitously available during the holy month of Ramzan...hte mouth watering Haleem.

The best place to visit would be Paradise. Now!! Is that the Paradise as in Heaven, God's world..Well it The Paradise Restaurant in Hyderabad, an aptly named biryani lovers paradise indeed.

If you are a non vegetarian planning to visit Hyderabad, Paradise is the place for authentic Dum Biryani( the food at the parcel section is not great though). If you are lucky to be there during the holy month of Ramzan, then you relish the mouth watering, stomach filling Haleem. Do not forget to ask for the fried onions and a slice of lemon. They just aggravate the tingle in your tastebuds to indulge you in heaven. :)

Now what else after food!!!

Shopping !!! What else...I guess they just go perfectly well, hand in hand. Food not accompanied by a shopping exercise is rather incomplete.

So now where for shopping?

Just a few 100 meters away is a great shopping area. The General Bazar. Walk down and go shopping.

What in shopping?

Well the first thing would be the Pearls!!!

Diamonds are a girl's best friend. Pearls are the bestest. If you are done with your purchase of diamonds head for pearls, if not no excuses, you can buy diamonds and pearls together now. :D.

If you have started with lunch at Paradise, then I am sure, its going to be evening by the time you are done with the shopping.

And I am sure you must have acquired a good amount of small denomination notes/coins and I am also sure you want to lighten your purse a little more before you close in on the wonderful day's experiences. So head for icreams, chaat, tea, coffee, burgers...and more and if it is during Ramzan, you know what to do.

Have a Happy Hyderabad Day!!!!

I've Started!!!

Its a long time now, I have started thinking about blogging but doing nothing.
The first step to that is what I have taken today. A blog in my name. With a few suggestions from my blogger friend Ravi Don I start off. 
The inauguration is over, now is the time to write. So now, I have started thinking about what I need to write. 
Till I think and come up with something worthwhile, I am taking leave . Bye.
