Is Raat Ki Subah Nahi :)

Friday nights are fun :) Usually, we are off to play pool, on a night out, party a bit somewhere, or just hang out at someones place and do tp. We usually leave office by around 10.30 and reach home to sleep around 4-5 AM Saturday. Yesterday night was one of the most memorable in my stay :)

It was a day like many others before it. Tight deadlines to meet the UAT release deadlines, urgent activities to complete and all was ready by 2 PM. Well, as all stories go, this activity went on till a long way past that time :) and we were sitting in office till 6 AM making the release. LOL.

I used to think that I am a pretty calm person :) But I don't know, if it is the need of the hour or just age and experiences that it has become very regular to treat dire emergencies in a manner which says: "What do I need to do in order to make this run? Right. Problem 1: Cause & Treatment. Problem 2: Cause & Treatment..." instead of "Damn! How did this happen? What do we do now?"

It was a pleasant surprise to have a broken release and to apply ones quick thinking and problem resolution skills to solve the problems and get the system working. Server shell scripts, component versioning problems, code dependencies, port mapping issues, display rendering issues. We solved them all one by one and closed shop at 6 AM.

Frankly, the mind fought till 4.30 AM. After that, it was purely on auto-pilot. Hunger was forgotten and fatigue was fought as much as possible. And the team worked together as one unit and it was a beautiful combined effort of all that brought the system up and saved the day :)

Well, alls well that ends well and we left office to the beautiful sight of the rising sun. I loved the night :) For what it was and a mini-adventure at work too :)

To Lil Bachchi

Bachchi, great luck with your dream(s)...

Mast Life

Today, I complete 3 months in Japan. The first thing after arriving was to travel to Mast Life Apartment in Nishi Gotanda, which was to be my home. I entered flat 308 and was shocked by the smallness of the studio apartment. The entire apartment was approximately the size of my room back home. Probably, it was one of the factors that also made me feel homesick on the first night. I decided that work and money be damned. Im going home by the first flight in 3 months.

But as time passed, I grew more accustomed to feeling this apartment as my "home". I dislike the word "room" which most people use for their places of living (particularly people living outside their homes and in my industry. I see this as a very common usage. I keep quiet, but I don't like it.) To me a home is a special place. A place of love, security, peace, privacy, happiness. And somehow, the word "home" is very special to me. I don't know why. Just.

Tomorrow, I move away from No. 308, Mast Life to a place called Tamachi, where I will be sharing my home with a couple of friends. And even I am surprised that the initial feeling of shock over a small apartment has been replaced with an almost sentimental feeling of loss over having to leave this home. It's embarassing almost, but it is the truth and so be it. I will miss No. 308. I will miss my times here of the last 3 months.

My first home away from home. My first place where I made sambar :), learnt to make good alu mutter, rajma :), my first home where I bought some gadgets for myself with HIS and THEIR blessings. My thoughts when in this room, my blogging, my privacy. My discussions and calls with various people. I will carry many memories of No. 308. I will carry memories of people's kindness, their cooperation, joint lunches, lunctime FRIENDS episodes, night outs :)

I am just one of many people that have lived here. This home is one of many I have lived in in my life. But, somewhere, it became a part of my life. Somehow, I am leaving a part of me here.

Mast Life 308 - Home Sweet Home. Farewell friend...

To Someone...

You promised him on his birthday... It is a promise you want to keep at all costs... You know you have it in you... You know things are right... What are you waiting for? Just free your mind, dude... Just free your mind... It is all in the mind... You know it... Work on it... Work with all your energy, all your strength, all your mind towards it... You have lived with it for 4 years... How can you say that it is not for you? All you need is a strong heart and a strong mind... Let go of the past... Let go of all the pasts... This is not like those... This is absolutely not like those... You know what you have to do... You know you have to do it... There is no looking back... Be that unfearing kid once again... It worked partially...

You have the reasons... You have the purpose... You have the reason to achieve your destiny and you have the purpose to fulfill that reason... Very few understand their purpose, their reasons... You are lucky to know them... Just free your mind and don't be afraid... It is not yours for the taking... But it is also certainly not out of reach...

Awake, arise and stop not until the goal is reached...
Believe in yourself, Believe in God...
The sky is the limit...

- Swami Vivekananda

Do you know how you can do it? I think you have the answer...

Each time you feel weak, each time you feel like quitting, each time you come up with an excuse to postpone or give up, remember Ashish...

Remember Ashish...

And miles to go before I sleep...
And miles to go before I sleep...

I will...

A Beautiful Mind

I was watching the movie "A Beautiful Mind" tonight and as is our system, we watch parts of stuff over lunch and dinner which is the only free time in a day we get :) Part I was seen a few nights back and I immediately sensed that it might be a movie I would love watching.

Part II was seen tonight and I really enjoyed the movie overall, though it was painful to see John Nash's trials and tribulations, I also marvelled at the God-given intelligence that a man can possess. Pure brilliance is so beautiful...

I have met countless people in my life, infact, all people I have met in my life, have left me speechless at one point or the other with their intelligence, wisdom, brilliance, humility. And, no, it has never made me feel bad, for not being good enough. Infact, it somehow gladdens me that these people chose to share their knowledge with me and helped me.

True intelligence is a great thing and must be celebrated. Great institutions make great men. And great men make great institutions. I believe that it is symbiotic. Great men and great institutions go hand in hand. One cannot be without the other. Atleast, I believe so.

But, does greatness know itself? Would the great men know they are great? Won't it be normal for them? Regular? Can it be pre-ordained? Or is it the course of a human being's life and the way it is conducted that makes it great?

This movie touched a deep chord in my heart. It brought out the frailties and the strengths of the human mind. A brilliant mathematician and yet afflicted by schizophrenia. Subjected to difficult treatments and finally his own willpower, and not the medicines, helped him overcome his disability.

John Forbes Nash Jr. is the proponent of one of my favourite mathematical and economics concepts, Game Theory. I have the highest regard for him, for the work he has done and all that he has achieved in his brilliant career. His life story is described here. But to me, after reading up on him, his greatest achievement is his will power in living with and working on his schizophrenia, his quest to achieve and study more maths, his single minded commitment towards the cause he was probably destined for.

Maybe the greatest thing about greatness is having a great heart... They too are symbiotic... One cannot be without the other...

John Forbes Nash, Ladies and Gentlemen...

Mere Maa Ke Pairon Ko Chooke Tu... Use Uske Bete Ka Naam De...

A small salute to our brave men and women... God be with you... Jai Hind.


I saw this song when I was 17. And my life changed ever since. I fell in love with the BMW Z3 Roadster in this song and well, ever since that moment, it is the car I have wanted to definately own someday :) LOL Given Mumbai's roads, let's see how far this dream becomes a practical reality :)

A song with a lot of meaning... Truly an amazing song from a once-in-a-lifetime movie...

Maa woh hai... Jo humko itna pyaar karti hai, ki kabhi kabhi hum khud us pyaar ko samajh nahi paate...

Maa woh hai... Jo humko ehsaas dilati hai ki hum kitne achhe hain, humse achha aur koi hai hi nahi...

Maa woh hai... Jiski khushi hamari hasi se hai... Jiska dukh hamare dukh se hai...

Maa woh hai... Jiske bina hum jee nahi sakte...

Maa... Maa sab kuch hai

For Anshum... :)

World Cup 1998 - David Beckham was sent off in the 2nd Round (Group of 16) match against Argentina for kicking Diego Simeone after being provoked. England went on to lose the match on penalties after drawing 2-2.

The English media held Beckham responsible for this defeat.

Beckham could not return home for 3 months due to public anger over his "conduct". They threatened to harm his wife and they abused him and his family. They even made horrific remarks about his unborn kid.

World Cup 2002 - His response.

Someday... Someway...

Someday I want to be the guy doing this :)

Someday, I want a stadium cheering for me :)

Two Men, Two Dreams, One Song :)

There is no explanation in my mind why I am living this dream... But I surely pray that I do not have to wake up from this beautiful dream someday... In the meanwhile, I just keep thanking God for granting me the privilege of seeing his created beauty each and every day and wonder what right I must have done... Standing under the vast expanse of the night sky, looking up at the stars... Life is beautiful... Thank you God :)

Yellam ungal arul taan, Swamigale... Romba romba Nandri... Indha arulk naan layaka illaiya teriyaad... Ana nichyam romba romba nandri...

This Too Shall Pass...

The last few months have been very helpful to my career at this stage. I have been given a foreign assignment at a very young age, it looks good on the CV and helps my bank balance. As Andy put it: "People write on their resumes that they did an imple without ever doing it. You are actually going to do an imple at one of the fastest rising banks in a First World country. Look at the experience you will be gaining."

Also the personal learnings that come each day are something that are helping me both personally and professionally. From nowhere to somewhere would probably be a simple way of putting it.

However, each time I sit back and look at my good fortune, I am reminded constantly of the times when nothing went right, no one stood by my side and each day seemed like it was worse than the previous days. I lived through those days with an unbending hope and will power that I won't give up in any circumstance. Not that it didn't get to me or I didn't voice my frustrations at times :). But in my heart, I always knew that this too would pass and there would always be sunshine tomorrow.

In one of the proudest periods of my life, only I know how I put my head down and worked harder than regular, changed my attitude towards life, let go of the past, brought in mental discipline and basically stared down one of the most crucial periods of my life and I won. To take an analogy from one of my life's loves, football, it is something akin to being the guy who takes the final penalty for your team to keep them in the game. You miss... your team loses. So missing isn't an option. And by Gods grace, whether on the football field or in life, I haven't missed when it has mattered.

That period, along with a huge dose of luck, has shaped everything that I am as a person today. And as I look back, I see that I am the sum of not just the good times, but infact moreso the bad times, because that was the period that really taught me most of life's lessons, much better than what the good times would have taught.

Along the way, I have exorcised my personal demons and let my work do the talking. And each time, I have constantly told myself not to ever give up on my principles or to take the easy way out. Theres something much more at stake than success or fortune for me to do that.

However, I always tell myself, just as the bad times gave way for the good, the good times MUST give way for the bad. It is the very principle of human existence. Things go around in cycles and this good time too shall pass. Tomorrow, all this that I have will go away and rightfully so. Because... Without seeing failure, how can one value success? Without feeling pain, how can one love purely? Without feeling jealous, how can one learn indifference? Without being insecure, how can one learn self-confidence? Without being down, how can one rise? Without seeing Greatness, how can one be humbled?

In my case, I am a flawed person. I am not perfect in mind and deeds like some people I know or have heard of. I still have insecurities to iron out, personality traits to change, become less immodest. In short, there is still a long way for me to go to becoming that ideal man that I promised I would be (The fact that I will probably never be so pure or good is also known to me subconsciously, but then, one can always try to improve on ones weaknesses, can't one?)

My Mom tells me that this cycle will always be there, but in all times, we must keep a balanced mind and never be too swayed by either the good or bad times. And one must always trust in GOD and believe that HE does everything for a reason and always for our good.

I agree.

Why life varies between extremes, I don't know. It would be much simpler to live an ordinary life, unaffected, untouched. But I do know that the more one becomes detached and self-sufficient, the variations seem to affect one lesser and lesser.

From my experiences, the lessons I have learnt were:

  • When faced with failure, inspite of working hard. Work harder.

  • When faced with disappointments, always have hope.

  • When faced with dishonesty, always be honest and straightforward.

  • Never think that the only way to success is to screw people.

  • And most importantly :)

  • When people say you CAN'T, give them a few years. You will be doing exactly what they said you couldn't and it will always be heard that: "Oh my God! I never thought you would..."

I am not afraid of being the guy who loses it all, like I will one day. I am not afraid of being the guy who has to work his way up again. As the great Alain Prost said: "Till you do it, you think you can do it. Once you do it, you KNOW you can do it."

This too shall pass...

I have done it before. I know I can do it again. I KNOW that I can be that kid who stood with a strong heart and fire in his soul to take that final penalty kick unfailingly.

The more things change, the more they remain the same.

P.S: Please don't misunderstand this post to be written for me to show off to everyone where I am. That certainly wasn't my intention in writing this post, which I consider my best work in all that I have written so far. My reason was merely to share my simple life story with all those who seem to not be having things going well for them at this moment in time. Because, if I can have a lucky break with my lesser ability and standing, then definately you, my readers will be having much brighter futures than what I have talked about so far.

This post is essentially of the theme that a better day does come in all our lives, and probably we should thank the Almighty for having given us the blessing to live to see that day.

It also reiterates that one musnt be too attached to the materialistic things as said by the wise teachers and gurus over the ages. Things and situations come and go, and probably the quest of life is to learn how to cope with anything that comes our way.

And probably tonight, for the first time in all these blogs, I have written as much for my readers as I have always written for myself. Because, I want to share my life's theme with all of you. And that is always live on hope. The rest of all actions, whatever you name them, derive from that. Through this post, I wish to be that voice that tells you: "You can do it...", "You were born to be great...", "This too shall pass..." and mean it honestly, since we all know that life is cruel and kind in turns to all of us. If I manage to do that, I will consider that my blogging and always being open about my life and sharing the most private of thoughts (minus some) has been worthwhile.

As I read recently: "Hope is a good thing. Maybe the best of all things. And no good thing ever dies."

I wish you a wonderful life... :)

I Want Revenge...

AC Milan vs Liverpool - 2004/05 Champions League Finals...

I swear... We WILL come to the Merseyside and beat you 5-0... I shall wait for that day... And that day, the revenge will be complete... I am willing to wait an entire lifetime for it...

Mark my words... We WILL do it...

P.S: I spent about 45 mins after writing this post and then I felt that nope... revenge isn't what I want. I guess just a small, harmless, sporting payback by beating our opponents on the field. And one reason, why I may never like Liverpool, but will always have some kind of bond with them, is because at the end of the day, their theme song (You'll never walk alone...) is THE greatest poem I have ever read.

To All Dreamers

Here's to all dreamers... I wish tonight that all our dreams come true and always happiness shines on all of us...

Drifting In Tokyo :) - Deja Vu

One of the most powerful words Iv ever heard were heard in this movie, Fast and Furious - Tokyo Drift. Shawn asks Han, why he (Han) allowed Shawn to race his car, when he knew that Shawn would wreck it.

Han tells Shawn: "Money is not a problem for me. Friendship and Character are though. To guage the character of a man, the price of a car is a price, I am willing to pay."

Drifting In Tokyo :)

Whenever we watch this movie, we keep trying to see which all places we have visited in Tokyo from those shown in the movie :)

A Tribute Tonight

A final post tonight. One of the most moving songs. As always in a tribute, lights out, volume highest, eyes closed.

Stan - Eminem feat. Dido

Chorus: Dido
My tea's gone cold I'm wondering why I..
got out of bed at all
The morning rain clouds up my window..
and I can't see at all
And even if I could it'd all be gray,
but your picture on my wall
It reminds me, that it's not so bad,
it's not so bad..

1st Chorus: volume gradually grows over raindrop background
2nd Chorus: full volume with beat right after "thunder" noise

[Eminem as 'Stan']
Dear Slim, I wrote but you still ain't callin
I left my cell, my pager, and my home phone at the bottom
I sent two letters back in autumn, you must not-a got him
There probably was a problem at the post office or something
Sometimes I scribble addresses too sloppy when I jot him
but anyways; fuck it, what's been up? Man how's your daughter?
My girlfriend's pregnant too, I'm bout to be a father
If I have a daughter, guess what I'ma call her?
I'ma name her Bonnie
I read about your Uncle Ronnie too I'm sorry
I had a friend kill himself over some bitch who didn't want him
I know you probably hear this everyday, but I'm your biggest fan
I even got the underground shit that you did with Skam
I got a room full of your posters and your pictures man
I like the shit you did with Ruckus too, that shit was phat
Anyways, I hope you get this man, hit me back,
just to chat, truly yours, your biggest fan
This is Stan

{Chorus: Dido

[Eminem as 'Stan']
Dear Slim, you still ain't called or wrote, I hope you have a chance
I ain't mad - I just think it's FUCKED UP you don't answer fans
If you didn't wanna talk to me outside your concert
you didn't have to, but you coulda signed an autograph for Matthew
That's my little brother man, he's only six years old
We waited in the blistering cold for you,
four hours and you just said, "No."
That's pretty shitty man - you're like his fucking idol
He wants to be just like you man, he likes you more than I do
I ain't that mad though, I just don't like being lied to
Remember when we met in Denver - you said if I'd write you
you would write back - see I'm just like you in a way
I never knew my father neither;
he used to always cheat on my mom and beat her
I can relate to what you're saying in your songs
so when I have a shitty day, I drift away and put 'em on
cause I don't really got shit else so that shit helps when I'm depressed
I even got a tattoo of your name across the chest
Sometimes I even cut myself to see how much it bleeds
It's like adrenaline, the pain is such a sudden rush for me
See everything you say is real, and I respect you cause you tell it
My girlfriend's jealous cause I talk about you 24/7
But she don't know you like I know you Slim, no one does
She don't know what it was like for people like us growin up
You gotta call me man, I'll be the biggest fan you'll ever lose
Sincerely yours, Stan -- P.S.
We should be together too

{Chorus: Dido

[Eminem as 'Stan']
Dear Mister-I'm-Too-Good-To-Call-Or-Write-My-Fans,
this'll be the last package I ever send your ass
It's been six months and still no word - I don't deserve it?
I know you got my last two letters;
I wrote the addresses on 'em perfect
So this is my cassette I'm sending you, I hope you hear it
I'm in the car right now, I'm doing 90 on the freeway
Hey Slim, I drank a fifth of vodka, you dare me to drive?
You know the song by Phil Collins, "In the Air of the Night"
about that guy who coulda saved that other guy from drowning
but didn't, then Phil saw it all, then at a show he found him?
That's kinda how this is, you coulda rescued me from drowning
Now it's too late - I'm on a 1000 downers now, I'm drowsy
and all I wanted was a lousy letter or a call
I hope you know I ripped ALL of your pictures off the wall
I love you Slim, we coulda been together, think about it
You ruined it now, I hope you can't sleep and you dream about it
And when you dream I hope you can't sleep and you SCREAM about it
I hope your conscience EATS AT YOU and you can't BREATHE without me
See Slim; {*screaming*
Shut up bitch! I'm trying to talk!
Hey Slim, that's my girlfriend screamin in the trunk
but I didn't slit her throat, I just tied her up, see I ain't like you
cause if she suffocates she'll suffer more, and then she'll die too
Well, gotta go, I'm almost at the bridge now
Oh shit, I forgot, how am I supposed to send this shit out?

{Chorus: Dido

Dear Stan, I meant to write you sooner but I just been busy
You said your girlfriend's pregnant now, how far along is she?
Look, I'm really flattered you would call your daughter that
and here's an autograph for your brother,
I wrote it on the Starter cap
I'm sorry I didn't see you at the show, I musta missed you
Don't think I did that shit intentionally just to diss you
But what's this shit you said about you like to cut your wrists too?
I say that shit just clowning dog,
c'mon - how fucked up is you?
You got some issues Stan, I think you need some counseling
to help your ass from bouncing off the walls when you get down some
And what's this shit about us meant to be together?
That type of shit'll make me not want us to meet each other
I really think you and your girlfriend need each other
or maybe you just need to treat her better
I hope you get to read this letter, I just hope it reaches you in time
before you hurt yourself, I think that you'll be doin just fine
if you relax a little, I'm glad I inspire you but Stan
why are you so mad? Try to understand, that I do want you as a fan
I just don't want you to do some crazy shit
I seen this one shit on the news a couple weeks ago that made me sick
Some dude was drunk and drove his car over a bridge
and had his girlfriend in the trunk, and she was pregnant with his kid
and in the car they found a tape, but they didn't say who it was to
Come to think about, his name was.. it was you


I have always been a fan of Eminem's music. I like his honest lyrics and sense of music rhythm. I really don't listen to too much rap, but there is something about his music that transcends good. He is Great.

The song is Lose Yourself.

By The Time This Night Is Over

By the time this night is over, I am going to let some part of me go :)

Signs :)

Just when you wonder how things will work out, they work out :)

I am so happy :)

Forza Italia - Part II - Italy Till I Die

WC 1994 - Beaten by Brazil on penalties in the final. I cried quietly.

WC 1998 - Beaten by France on penalties in the quarterfinals. I cried quietly.

Euro 2000 - Beaten by a golden goal by David Trezeguet in the finals. I was broken, but didn't cry.

WC 2002 - Beaten by South Korea by a golden goal in Round 2. I was shattered, but didn't cry.

WC 2006 (Semifinal)- We beat Germany in the semi-finals. I felt confident and happy.

WC 2006 (Final) - Zidane scored a goal in the 7th minute. I felt we still could win somehow.
Materazzi scored in the 19th minute and I felt vindicated and absolutely on fire.

Italy won the World Cup 2006 on penalties.

We had one of the worst records of penalty taking and I have seen Italy lose every match that went into penalties, barring the semifinal of Euro 2000, where we won with 10 men against Holland after Zambrotta was sent off in the 27th minute (However we lost the finals after leading for most part through a Wiltord goal and Trezeguet's golden goal.)

And yet the moment of truth came through the penalties, which have given so much pain over a course of 12 years :) How much more vindication can one have than to wait an eternity and then win by overcoming those very same obstacles that have kept you away from something you loved for so long :) This is the meaning of life to me... Love truly and always hope that your truth brings you through the darkness that seems inconquerable to all but yourself.

Sports is my life and I am eternally grateful to it's teachings.


Forever and always...

Forza Italia - Part I - Italy Till I Die

Say what you want...

Cometh the hour...

Cometh the MAN.


Please Don't Say You'r Sorry

Read this on a friend's Orkut profile:

"Har kamyaab aadmi ke peechay aurat ka haath hota hai , kyunki aurat ek naakamyab aadmi ka saath nahi degi...."

Courtesy: Raghu

Itni Si Hai Inayat... Tumse... :)

I keep humming the opening lines of this song absent mindedly pretty often. So today, I decided to watch the video as well... LOL... Nice song, Funny video. But the best part I liked was the backwaters of Kerala... :)

Home is beautiful... isn't it :)

Waqt, Yeh Tune Kya Kiya?

Not an original, but I loved it nonetheless :)

Kal ki kisko khabar jaan-e-jaan
Rok lo aaj ki raat ko
Aaj jaane ki zid na karo
Yunhi pehloo mein baithe raho (2)
Aaj jaane ki zid na karo
Haay mar jaayenge, hum to lut jaayenge
Aisi baatein kiya na karo
Aaj jaane ki zid na karo

Someday... Someway...
