Clouds always intrigue me and I can spend hours watching Clouds drifting and taking various shapes. Its feels strange to me that they can influence a persons moods in some scenarios, at least my moods, I can say.

For example, if I am sad and if its raining out side, I become more sad.(Sometimes I think, I am not sad because its raining. I am sad and that's the reason its raining..ha ha ha.. just kidding, lets get back to real world). If I am happy or I achieved something and I see a fresh and clear sky emerging from clouds, it makes me more joyous. Like these, there are some more such feelings which are unexplainable but one can feel them.

Putting apart all these, if I have my camera in hand, it can result in something like below:

Sun and Sand!!

After a tiresome weekend with couple of hundred kilometers of travel, I just feel like lazing around doing nothing, every muscle in my body wants to take rest. When I think of the coming up events / functions that I have to attend and places to visit in coming 6 to 8 weeks my body collapses like a bag of bones...but cant help! As they say man is a social animal......I have no more words.........

I was just going through my old picture collection and WoW, just the sight of the beach with sunset as back drop relaxes half of my muscles and for the rest of them to relax, I guess it cannot be done mentally.

I clicked the below picture at RK Beach, Vishakapatnam couple of months back.

"Boys use word 'friendship' to start LOVE, Girls use same word to end LOVE.

Same word but different attitude, this OOPS concept is called as POLYMORPHISM"

Is this adbuthamina(wonderful) service?????

This is one of the rare incidents where customers are given importance and the necessary action is taken favoring the customer(Of course, my Never say die attitude and patience to type long emails were major contributors) . This was with Airtel where my ISD service was barred without any intimation. After fighting my way through many Customer Service Representatives without any result, I emailed to all the airtel email addresses I got over the website and it worked.

Unlike My worst customer service experience in my life with Reliance, which by the way still not fixed(even after 8 months and numerous visits to their showroom), this one has a happy ending and it came in just within one week.

My Email:,,,
dateFeb 18, 2008 1:12 PMsubject9849131522 - Is this adbuthamina service?????????????????

Dear Airtel,
If any one of you gets time off your Adbutaimaina Service to read this email and care to respond, it will be appreciated.!!!!!!!!!!!

To brief it up, I guess my 4 or 5 year relationship with Airtel is going to end soon. Read on to know what lead to this decision:

I am user of Airtel from past few years and I was pretty much happy about the services. Yeah, one and two bitter experiences here and there ..ok I understand.

It all started with some one from Airtel calling me and telling me to consider some new bill plans. So I thought 399 super saver will be good for me and thought I will change to that plan. But the guy who called me told that as I was in CUG at that time they cannot change my bill plan over the phone and I would have to visit the showroom.

So, I visit the showroom(Splendid Towers) and a guy over there tells me that as I am in CUG from my earlier company, I would have to bring a letter from my previous company HR or Management saying that I left the company and they can take me out from CUG. I know that is meaningless and I tried to explain the same to the guy but he was not listening and was very eager to shoo me off. So, I left it off at that some point.

After a month or so, some one again from Airtel calls me to explain about the new plans and when I tell him that I was asked to bring letter from my previous company as I was in CUG, he said that that is not required and I can visit the showroom to change my bill plan.

So, one fine day I visited Splendid Towers showroom and saw Adbutaimana service posters and display cards all over and at that moment I could not realise what adbutamaina service was in store for me.

I completed the formalities of changing the bill plan and I specifically asked the lady who was processing the request regarding my ISD calls. I told her that I frequently will have to dail ISD calls and will that service be as it was and she said it will sure be. Being happy that my work is done I left the place.

Once the bill plan is changed, after few days I notice that my ISD calles were not going giving a message that I do not have the service. So I call 121 and explained the situation they guy asks me to send SMS to 121 ISD ACTIVE and my service will be restored in 3 hours.When I send the SMS as asked , I get an error saying some http error. So I call in again, and after explaining what all has been happened the guy tells me that he will put in a request from his side and the service will be activated within 3 hours.

I wait for another 3 to 4 hours and see that my service is not yet active. So again I call 121 and explain what all happened, I get an answer that I I have to pay 1500 deposit for ISD activation my service was not activated. I was told this at this point!!!!

The question I had for the guy was I am using this number from many years with ISD service and I never paid any deposit and I asked him to check my payment records in all these years and see. The guy said there might be some mistake during the bill plan change and will escalate the call.

I was transferred to Franklin and he said he needs 1 hour to research on what exactly might have happened. He said that he is sure that I will get a positive response.

After 1 hour or so I did get a call from Franklin and he said that ISD was activated on my number accidentally and it was noticed during the bill plan change and hence it was taken out. And it will be activated only if I pay 1500 deposit.

This freaked me out and I lost my cool. If any one cares to read this entire email, please check out my payment history and what all went on with me in past 2 days.

I am so pissed off with the embarrassment I had to go through without the ISD calls in past 1 week that if you guys are not doing anything about that I am thinking to file a law suite in consumer court against this incident and I have already talked to my lawyer regarding this.

To top it all, I call the nodal officer number on your website and some lady answers and says Nodal and when I start narrating she does not hear any thing or talk anything, however, I can hear all the background noises from her end. I waited for 2 mins and hung up. I called again and guess what, this time no answer!!!!!!! this waht you call adbuthaimaina service!?????

Also, at 9.37 am today I get a meaage that "dear customer your request for ISD activation will be processed within 4 working hours". I dont know what this means.......but certinally not adbutaimaina service!!!!

-- Thank you and regards,
Bharani Surineni

I Don’t Want To Miss A Thing

I do not believe in this but, "Happy Valentines Day" for everyone. 'Cause I am kind of person who believes that there shouldnt be like a special day to express love, we should be making everyday or most of the days special by expressing love. Ok, that discussion is for sometime later. Coming to this post " I Don’t Want To Miss A Thing by Aerosmith " is my all time favourite love song, which is Sound Track from the movie 'Armageddon'. I instantanosly fell in love with this song when I first herd it back in collage and I used to listen to this one day and night till the tape went bad.

I should also confess that, back in college I sang this song and recorded on to a Tape along with my friend Satish .. ha ha ha ha...... I can't believe that I have done that to Aerosmith. I dont know what Satish has to say now!, but back then he appreciated me that the song came out well.

If you have not heard this one, please get a quick download of it and listen to it right away. I suggest to get the full OST CD if you can, as every song on it is a master piece. The weight of the lyrics and the depth of Steven Tailor's voice is simply wonderful and mesmorising. Also, if you have missed the movie 'Armageddon' do get a DVD today and watch it, today might be the right day for it.

Read the lyrics of the song below to get the taste of it ...............
I Don’t Want To Miss A Thing - Aerosmith

I could stay awake just to hear you breathing
Watch you smile while you are sleeping
While youre far away dreaming
I could spend my life in this sweet surrender
I could stay lost in this moment forever
Every moment spent with you is a moment I treasure

Dont want to close my eyes
I dont want to fall asleep
Cause Id miss you baby
And I dont want to miss a thing
Cause even when I dream of you
The sweetest dream will never do
Id still miss you baby
And I dont want to miss a thing

Lying close to you feeling your heart beating
And Im wondering what youre dreaming
Wondering if its me youre seeing
Then I kiss your eyes
And thank God were together
I just want to stay with you in this moment forever
Forever and ever

Dont want to close my eyes
I dont want to fall asleep
Cause Id miss you baby
And I dont want to miss a thing
Cause even when I dream of you
The sweetest dream will never do
Id still miss you baby
And I dont want to miss a thing

I dont want to miss one smile
I dont want to miss one kiss
I just want to be with you
Right here with you, just like this
I just want to hold you close
Feel your heart so close to mine
And just stay here in this moment
For all the rest of time

Dont want to close my eyes
I dont want to fall asleep
Cause Id miss you baby
And I dont want to miss a thing

Cause even when I dream of you
The sweetest dream will never do
Id still miss you baby
And I dont want to miss a thing

Dont want to close my eyes
I dont want to fall asleep
I dont want to miss a thing

Girl's diary Vs Boy's diary

Her Diary:
Day night, I thought he was acting weird.
We had made plans to meet at a cafe to have some coffee.
I was shopping with my friends all day long, so I thought he was upset at the fact that I was a bit late, but he made no comment.
Conversation wasn't flowing so I suggested that we go somewhere quiet so we could talk, he agreed but he kept quiet and absent.
I asked him what was wrong - he said, "Nothing. "I asked him if it was my fault that he was upset. He said it had nothing to do with me and not to worry.

On the way home I told him that I loved him, he simply smiled and kept driving.
I can't explain his behavior; I don't know why he didn't say, "I love u,too."When we got home I felt as if I had lost him, as if he wanted nothing to do with me anymore.
He just sat there and watched TV.; he seemed distant and absent. Finally I decided to go to bed.
About 10 minutes later he came to bed. I decided that I could not take it anymore, so I decided to confront him with the situation but he had fallen asleep.
I started crying and cried until I too fell asleep. I don't know what to do. I'm almost sure that his thoughts are with someone else.
My life is a disaster.


Today India lost the cricket match against bangladesh.

NOW that's called:
Simplicity of Men
Complexity of Women !!!

5 Ways To Stay Focused On Your Goals

No matter how excited you are about your work/business, with so many distractions and things that may be going on in your life, you can easily find yourself losing focus on your goals and what you want to accomplish. Below you will find 5 things that will help you stay focused on your goals.


You probably have heard the saying, "So many things to do and not enough time to do them." Even though that may be true, you still have to complete them all, especially if these things help you to reach your goals. To make it easier for you, just take 1 thing you have to do and complete that task until it is done. When it is done, you will feel a sense of accomplishment and it will motivate you to move on to your next task.


Take a moment to put things in order. If people write to you or send you orders in the mail, make 3 piles. Put the letters that need to be answered right away in the 1st pile. Letters that can be answered at a later date you can put in the 2nd pile and letters that have orders in them, you can put in the 3rd pile. Doing things like this in other areas of your life will help you keep things in priority and keep you focused on your goals.


If you find yourself at times having a negative attitude, you must realize that the way you look at things can make all the difference when it comes to reaching your goals. Even when obstacles stand in your way, maintaining a positive attitude, not a negative one and knowing that things can and will get better, will help you stay on track in reaching your goals.


Everything in life, if it is worth it, will take time. This goes for the goals you set for yourself. When you set goals, you should set 2 types of goals. A short term goal such as 6 months and also a long range goal, such as 3 years. You must realize that you are not going to reach your long term goals in 2 weeks. Whatever your goals may be, only through hard work, determination and keeping yourself focused, this is the way you will eventually reach your goals.


Reading articles, books or even listening to cassette tapes on motivation is a must if you want to keep yourself focused on your goals. Many successful people will tell you that even when they wanted to give up and throw in the towel, a paragraph in a book or something a motivational speaker said put them back on the right track and helped them reach their goals.

So if you want to stay focused on your goals, take these 5 points and put them into action today.

Mahindra Scorpio does a la Hummer H2

I think most of us are familiar with the American Gas Guzzler Hummer, one of its variant is H2 sut. Its noticeable space at the rear brought in a new style statement.

So what's up? Our very own Indian made SUV Scorpio came up with that kind of model called Getaway. The space at the back is a bit more on Getaway and at first glance it looked to me more like a pickup truck from Tata .The Scorpio Getaway will be available in 4X2 (2WD) and 4X4 (four-wheel drive) options and in four body colours.

I know comparing Hummer with Scorpio is like comparing apples with oranges but thats what it is.

The Scorpio Getaway 2WD `Double Cab' would also be priced at about Rs 7 lakh (ex-showroom).
Not sure how the Indian market takes this one.........!!

Beete lamhein - windows to the past

Dard mein bhi yeh lab muskura jaate hai
Beete lamhein humein jab bhi yaad aate hai
Beete lamheinnnnn...................

Chand lamhaat ke vaaste hi sahi
Mushkura kar mili thi mujhe zindagi
Teri aagosh din the mere kate
Teri baaahon mein thi mere raatien kati

Aaj bhi jab woh pal mujhko yaad aate hain
Dil se saare gumo ko bhoola jate hai
Dard mein bhi yeh lab muskura jaate hai
Beete lamhein humein jab bhi yaad aate hai
Beete lamheinnnnn...........

Mere kandhein mein sar ko Jukana Tera
Mere sene mein khud ko chupana teraa
Aake mere panaho mein shaam-o-seher
Kanch ki trah woh tut jana tera

Aaj bhi jab woh manzar nazar aate hai
Dil ki viraniyon ko mita jate hai
Dard mein bhi yeh lab muskura jaate hai
Beet lamhein humein jab bhi yaad aate hai
Beete lamheinnnnn.....

Dard Mein …..Beete lamheinnnnn
