The old feeling

Finally my blog - my once lost hobby - finds me signing in. Officially its been a long long time ago, since I made a proper post here. Ive been trying to put some dummy posts occasionally. Thank God, that blogspot shares the gmail password-yet I would have forgotten it long back.
I cannot help it but I am getting this awful, scary , what-so-ever feeling that I am growing older. Once you get this feel, its very tough to get rid of it. It keeps lingering in your mind- like the itch that bothers you about your one single white hair and the constant doubt that you have not zipped your pants. Salting this wound are the changes that are taking place around me - Every friend complaining about his/her/my tummy, exponentially increased number of "Annas" that I receive these days, my first mobile that I bought long back - now lying totally battered,college and school friends getting married, witnessing the death of things like Orkut, Yahoo, Zunes,IE etc....when things around you are getting outdated-Does that mean we too are?
I know I would hear a "No" - loud and clear from many of you.The louder you are-the older you are.There is no denying to this fact. I am wickedly happy that I am not the only one growing old. To see a bigger tummy or a more rapidly receding hair line in friends - Wow its an awesome feeling. It takes me back to my college days.
I should not sound so gloomy after all. Its been just a 24 year journey. Lots more mileage left.I am still the youngest in my office. I just found a new job, I am resuming my sport activities, I still can cycle a lot more than 20Kms, I still can lift the full weights in my gym ,it still doesnt look odd when I wear a shorts and I still look like a school boy when I shave . Lol the last one was a little too far fetched. Never mind :P
When I write this post-seated opposite to me is a man- probably older than me by 5 years. Damn - I am still young :) Am happy and the fact that I am happy does makes me a wee bit worried . 874a88c0233c7760b1a9752b83761e30ef716f4cc444dcfa44

This incident occurred in Singapore on the 1st of April 2010.

Maybe a April Fool prank..not sure...874a88c0233c7760b1a9752b83761e30ef716f4cc444dcfa44

Yet Another Sachin Record - Sachin slams 200

Batting legend Sachin Tendulkar added yet another feather to his cap when he became the first batsman to cross the 200-run mark in an ODI at the Captain Roop Singh Stadium in Gwalior today on the 24th February 2010. Sachin achieved the unique landmark when he ran a single off Langeveldt of South Africa in the second one-dayer of the ongoing three-match series.

Sachin's 200 came off 147 balls, which include 25 fours and 3 sixes.
The master surpassed the previous highest individual score made by Pakistan's Saeed Anwar (194 against India in 1997) and Charles Coventry of Zimbabwe (194 not out against Bangladesh in 1999).

Tendulkar started his innings aggressively and made a quick-fire 37-ball fifty before finally completing his century in 90 balls. Sachin extended his lead for the record of most number of centuries to 17 as Ricky Ponting lies in the second place with 29 centuries.

Tendulkar continued his record breaking form as he had slammed his 46th Test ton in the final match of the longer version of the game against the Proteas earlier.

After losing Virender Sehwag (9) early in the innings, Tendulkar put on 194-run partnership with Dinesh Karthik (79 off 85 balls), who slammed his fourth ODI fifty, against South Africa.

Earlier, India skipper MS Dhoni won the toss and elected to bat against South Africa in the second One-dayer of the three match series.

Drive away

My boss had planned this vacation for over an year.It was his way to beat stress.I had to help him out on this European trip.I had got everything right and the only thing I had not thought about was the car hire plan.I had completely overlooked it till the last moment.It struck me when there was barely few days left.It was when I found this site.
It was a complete portal with updates from all leading car rental car suppliers in Europe and Italy Car Hire.
I could search for all dealers entering the pick up date,location,number of passengers,the rates, availability etc in a single click.It was user friendly,reliable and extremely trusted.It saved me from a huge embarrassment and my Boss was obviously satisfied with the service.

The day of ghosts

Every year my workplace gears up in full vigour for this day.Just take a guess.Would it be our board meeting?Our boss's birthday?Auditing?None of these.Its the halloween day.We just do not know why,but this day ever since the first day of inaugration,this particular day by some means has brought all excitement,fun and interest in usually dull and professional office atmosphere.Every year its the duty of one employee to select and purchase halloween costumes for every one participating.One might imagine the complexity of this task considering the fact that each oen has his own idea,his tastes ,likes ,dislikes ,priorities and preferences.
More difficult is finding the coreect size for a typically over size man/women.I had a real headache in finding a good source of halloween costumes as this year was my turn and I had a very little time to spare for this activity.
My search led me to this site.This I can easily claim to be the best source I had found so far. I suppose any further search cannot lead me to a better site .It had the largest online collection for men,women,children and even babies.
One could chose from the normal and the sexy varieties that were available and the selection was a easy task because they had a very good display catelogue.Every thing needed for a halloween right from accesories to decoration items was found.My favorite was this Angel Halloween costumes and no wonder it had a very great demand.Oen thing to note is that every piece is of very good quality and easily affordable.Beneath each product there is a very easy way to shop online and also a cool notification facility to inform us in case something is not available.
I have decided that this site would be the ultimate place for any event that I may host in future.
