[How not to]~Smile at your wedding!! ;)

There are certain places where and events when we got to put in that extra effort in whatever we ought to do. For instance, smiling at a wedding…especially when it’s your own wedding! 😛

Smiling, they say is infectious. When you smile, do so wholeheartedly!

To all those who are unmarried as yet, here’s a piece of advice from the author’s very own experience:
When you stand on the stage posing for the innumerous photographs being clicked by those fancy flashing instruments, that’s the very moment you need to gain composure, maintain focus and smile…neat and nice!

Note to the bridegroom: You need to smile at your very best dude…as once you get down that stage that day, it’s your new wife who does all the smiling! 😉

Note to the bride: Incase your new hubby is not smiling on stage, read and remind the above note to him. :mrgreen:

Now why do we end up giving weird expressions, when all that we are expected to do is give a lovely smile, however fake that it is?!!! Well, there could be reasons like:
a) we are tired of smiling continously.
b) we are bored of it.
c) ok we accept that we are plain and simply lazy.

Or there could be actual reasons like:
i) we don’t know the people who are standing next to us in the group photograph.
ii) we need to save energy for certain activities later 😉
iii) our jaws are paining.

Anyway, when you are on stage…
1) Do not, I repeat DO NOT smile with your eyes closed. You won’t know how much your friends could pull you on seeing that picture at a later stage.

2) Do not smile with your mouth open…it’s technically not smiling at all.

3) Do not smile clenching your teeth…might expose your animal instincts!! 😉

4) Do not smile so weird that it seems you’ve already given up. In short, don’t smile like a loser!

5) Agreed that it’s your big day and that you might be looking stunning, but don’t look stunned. 😀

But then at the end of the day, as I said in the note to the bridegroom above: Only one smiles/laughs at the end of it all. 😛

Anyway…I know that, how much ever we prepare for the big day…we always end up with at least one weird picture of ours on stage, which we would want to change till our very last breath!! 😉 Some things are always out of our control!! 😀

A-Zee~An Ode to Women!! :)

It is tough to miss contributing in a meme but it’s irresistable when the meme is about a “miss” (in this case, even the “missus” – the women as a whole! 😛 ).
So I picked up the meme left open by Megs in our internal blogs…and boy was I glad to see a lot many people…both women, and those who follow women (on blogs 😛 ) write on this topic – As far as this meme goes – Happy Women’s Week, let me say! 😛

Thanks to Megs, for kick starting this awesome meme A-Zee ~Womanhood…an ode to women

My take: It’s got some Hindi and Turkish (I think Yelek is one) words too, but the English that follows explains them neat! 😀

A – Affectionate…she loves you more than you ever can love yourself.
B – Bindaas…she lives her life care-free.
C – Charismatic…she carries herself beautifully.
D – Demanding…she can get tough on life, and by default on men! 😉
E – Elegant…elegance happens to be her birthright!
F – Fighter…she gets what she wants…you oppose, you bite the dust! 😀
G – Gossips…she likes to talk into the ears…
H – Hatke…she’s different…no two are of the same type.
I – Intelligent…she’s smart and talented…she shows it off or not.
J – Jovial…she’s fun loving and laughs at your jokes, however sad they are.
K – Kalon…beauty that is more than skin deep…beauty is in her eyes.
L – Lajawaab…she is super…in all that she does.
M – Moody…she has her own seasons…hot, warm, cold and biting!
N – Nagging…she likes to trouble you.. 😉
O – Outgoing…she likes her freedom…
P – Pink…she wears it on…also “goes pink” sometimes… 😛
Q – Questionnaire…she’s tough to answer, when in cold/biting mood…
R – Rapchik…she’s like you…equal.
S – Sensual…she’s sexy, saucy, hot and what not…
T – Tears…she cries…openly…likes to vent out…
U – Understanding…she gives in her best, to get to know and love/hate you.
V – Vocal…she is very expressive…can sweet-talk you as well as banish you…
W – Winner…she’s a go-getter, loves to beat the crap out of her opponent (read: men)
X – X-treme…she can go to any extremity to see to it that she and her loved ones are doing good.
Y – Yelek…she’s crazy about clothes, jewellery and other accessories…
Z – Zinda…she is very lively and full of life, a livewire…in short, she’s a WOMAN! 🙂

Rules to the Meme:

– List A-Z qualities of Women in your blog
– NO QUALITIES should be repeated
– Tag the Meme with Womens-Day-2010
– You could tag people for the meme or leave it open

I’m keeping the meme open here till next sunday if anyone wants to pick up…As for guys, I feel this is as tough as picking up a woman! 😉

[Emosional Athyachaar]: Pink Panther! ;)

“Sree, why you always amidst gals?”
“Sree, how the hell do you manage to get ladies to read the crap you write?”
“Man…you are such a perfect example for magnetism! A Pink Panther!” 😛
“What is there in this post that gals liked? Tell me how to get women to read my posts, you A$$oul…!!!!”


These are some of the questions that I am asked by most of the people whom I interact with on a day to day basis, be it online or offline! 🙂 Even I am astonished, to the level that I do not have a pakka answer to these kind of queries…
To be frank, as you know I am no pervert who goes on to do stuff or write things, just to get to know gals/women or to get their attention. 😛 Once I get to know them, I flirt…thats a different story…! :mrgreen:

It is true that I have more of gal friends than guys if I sit and get my mathematics right! In my office too, its the same story. How? Why? I have no idea. 
In my internal corporate blog, I did an analysis. I took an average of the last 5 posts that I had posted. Out of the 45 different ppl who commented, 37 were ladies. Out of the 8 guys who commented, only 6 were regulars and 2 asked me one of the above mentioned questions.
I talk mostly to women in my household…be it my granny, mom, sister (include her friends too…) or aunts…where there’s no end to the talks!! I call my mom, its a minimum 10 mins call…if I call my aunt, min 30 mins….if I call a gal friend, its either too short or too long (depending on her mood! :D)…if any of these call me, its a missed call!! 😉
It’s not that I don’t talk to my dad or uncles, but our conversations are limited to sports/politics/business/money/cars! Our answers are like synonyms in a thesaurus…one word and to the point.

The office guys/gals who follow this blog also wonder as to how I managed to get more lady commenters than males. I seriously dunno. I did do nothing special! 😉 Most of my lady commenters here I presume didn’t visit this blog cos I visited their blogs first, but I bet its the other way round. But in case of most male bloggers who visit and comment here, I visited most of them first or they are my colleagues/friends offline.

So how do I answer those questions?
And who will answer if I ask those same questions to myself?

Some answers are best unanswered! 😉

The Quarter of my life!! ;)

I am currently suffering from a disease which is preventing me from frequently updating this space!
Its called writer’s block….No cure has been found yet…so I trying to complete some age old deliverables! 🙂
Long back, Amrita had tagged me with this meme…so here I am! 😀

The rules –
Once you’ve been tagged, you are supposed to write a note with 25 random things, facts, habits, or goals about you. At the end, choose 25 people to be tagged!


Here I go….

1. I have since long had this plan of going to jog early in the morning but I am told 8 am isn’t early enough.

2. I am a cleanliness freak…Wore one pair of jeans every single day, the whole of 3 semesters without washing. Yes, I freak out when it comes to cleanliness.

3. The tuffrey at the backgate of my college was the very place we visited atleast once the previous night before a board paper…for a chai…I don’t smoke…I guess, thats the very reason why we cleared all papers at first go.

4. Instrumentation & Electronics (I&E) was the stream I chose ignoring the Comp Sci seat available…When it came to campus placement, the I&E companies never came and I landed in the Software industry…was that fate?

5. The first gal I had a crush on was only 6 yrs old. So was I.

6. Had a major crush on my science teacher. Didn’t see her after school. A friend said she looks all wrinkled now…so am thinking if I should go see her or let her be like she is in my mind? What say?

7. I love speed…and I have no control over it when I drive…I have touched the 100km/hr mark on my Activa’s odometer…but dunno why am not able to break it!! Is 100 the limit??

8. And ya…I do not sing songs when I drive….I have this habit of closing my eyes as I sing…hmmmm…

9. Strumming the guitar seemed easy and that made me join the classes…As of now, am mere noise and less music!

10. This women’s day, I wrote a small poem and sent it as an online card to 50 women across the world…some known and some unknown….and I got 50 thank you notes! You can check that card HERE! 🙂

11. I love beaches…Almost every alternate weekend I go there…Love the feel of sand on my bare feet!

12. All my friends (almost) have touched foreign soil atleast once so far in life…be it for studies or for work. Though I am attached to India, I dont want my passport to die a Virgin! Let her also see the world! 😉

13. The numbers 1 and 3 are my lucky ones…The number 13 is not a lucky number for me either mainly cos I think it constitutes of 1 and 3. Friday the 13th – is even better…I have had the best of them this February and March!!

14. Speaking again of numbers, I am Konkani speaking guy and 7 is considered lucky for us…why? I have no clue…but my luck doesn’t extend beyond 3!

15. My birthday is fast approaching….and I hate that am getting older on paper….I booked a ticket yesterday to Bangalore for 30th April, with my current age…a feel good factor for that day! yay!! 🙂

16. I wanted to be a doctor and fight illness…As a S/w engg I am debugging codes…are they the same in a different way?

17. I get along very well with women…especially if they are committed/engaged/married/old/dead! The rest come and go or belong to the categories I get along with! Aila…

18.  Tension or not, I bite my nails…I dont eat them as I dont like dead fossil.

19. I love dark coffee and chocolates…the bitter taste rekindles my mind.

20. I get up before the alarm rings…I wonder if the alarm clock is there to wake me up or if I am there to put it to sleep???!!!

21. I love Keira Knightley and Cobie Smulders…they have something in their eyes, which pricks me!!

22. Books is something is which I miss reading these days…I sleep off the moment I am done with 2-3 pages…however interesting the book is, and thats dangerous!! I need to stop reading those 2-3 pages till that time!

23. I was a sentimental person for a major part of my small tennure in life….Now no more senti…just mental!

24. It’s been years since I have played volleyball and football…and about 3 yrs since I played cricket…its only Table tennis these days!! With age, the balls do shrink!

25. I complete a year in blogging externally, this month…its been so kind of all you guys to keep me going on! You commenters and readers are the real motivators! Its been nice knowing you all so far!! You are THE best!! 😀

I dont know 25 ppl to tag…so I will tag a few and leave the rest open….

1) ISD (You are my saviour each time when it comes to tags! :P)
2) Dishit (Dude…here we go…. :D)
3) Nayna (I dont remember you doing any tags…so here I pass one on to you! 🙂
