Today I found the pearl with the same old unique shine

I have lost friends, some by death, others through sheer inability to cross the street.
- Virginia Woolf  


Yeah.. Even I have lost many friends..

  1. Coz of my ego which avoided me in getting back in touch.
  2. Coz of distance
  3. Coz of busy life after marrige


But there are a few who are always at the back of mind, reminding that me that they are pearls with unique shine, gifted to me.

I take extreme care not to avoid them in midst of this hectic life.

Also I take all possible measures to try to keep this bond going.


I got back in touch with one such pearl.. after 6 years ..

And that makes this day a very special one...


Dear God! I cannot thank you enough for this gift!!




Ideal Life

Good friends, good books and a sleepy conscience: this is the ideal life. - Mark Twain

Good friends -- tick
Good books -- tick
Sleepy conscience -- working on it ..

Good Bye

How would you deal with a person who does things even after he is warned about the consequences?

How would you deal with him when he yells at you and blames you, after facing those consequences?

I said "Good Bye.." I wish I had said Get Lost

No Data Found!

This was a “No Data Found” Custom message which my team mate had put in a report. This is a classic example for… How too much work on a BI tool can affect a person?
