After the Harry Potter series, I wondered if there was a series that would grip me so strong. I spent the last few years reading Harry Potter (HP) so many times over and over again and I loved each one of it for the heights of imagination that it would take me to. Now I am blinded once again by the “Twilight” Series.


When I got the space to sit back and enjoy the first book and it was definitely “Love at first read.” The author Stephenie Meyer has hit the right cords as the series has the correct blend of romance and suspense. It shakes the gory images of vampires and makes you want to fall in love with one desperately!!

The romance in the book is very heartwarming, one that goes through all turmoils, confusions and its own innocent highs. The suspense is very plot oriented and the book is hard to put down. (Thank God I had the weekend to finish it). I read all the books over 2 weeks and watched part 1 and 2 in the movie hall. now looking forward to the next release in June!

No change???

Sometimes life gets adjusted to no change at all. They say that change is the only thing in life that is constant. Wonder if that is so. Now life has become so stagnant that I am adjusted to the fact that nothing happens.

I am actually scared of change now. There are so many possibilities that change can bring that I am anxious about it. I am afraid that I may not live up to the expectations that it demands. There is one cult of people who say what happens in your life is what you do. Depending on your actions life goes forward. There is another cult who says that there is fate above all that decides your path.

I have always been confused as to which category I belong to. I believe in myself. I believe that I have the ability to change my life or do things according to what I want it to be. I have faced life in such a way that I have brought myself into just the scenarios that I wanted both personal and at work.

But still there is some force inside me that believes in fate. Fate that has bought me here. Fate that has brought me to where I am and what I am. I still am stuck at the crossroad where I don’t know whether I want to turn life to where I want it to go or should I leave fate to take its stride and wait for what it has in store for me.

To write or not to write....

I have been bored or maybe plain busy. I think about my blog every day (or precisely night I should say) and think that why the hell am I not writing anymore.

No it is not that nothing is happening. Lots of things are happening on the professional and personal front. There are so many thoughts in my head everyday that I get psyched thinking of them everyday....but still I don't write..

I further ponder as to what the reasons could be. I think that life is transitioning. i feel that rather than talking what is on your mind and causing debates, keeping mum is the easier way out. Being like that in every day life has affected my blog as well. I feel I don't have to share anything with anyone. (Maybe I should try anonymous blogging) . sometimes I feel no one would be interested. Sometimes I feel that I don't feel anything at all.

But again when I think of this space something inside (and by now it's very deep inside) makes me want to write again. If not for anything else at least for lightening the thoughts that run through my head everyday. And thus I am back as a first step!

Day without computers...

Once in a while I have sat back to think what would life be without computers. I know that I should never evne dream of such a think working at HP but still liberty of thought you see. I dream of the umpteen oppurtunoties created in the "Computer Free World" where there will be more man labour, there will thus be more employment, thus better living standards and so forth.

Whenever I fantasised this would happen I really never wished the tooth fairy would make my dream come true atleast limited to me. My system at office crashed and that due to a roaming virus!!! Can you imagine at office , so much data at stake, there pops up a devil virus. Amd there began my saga of reformatting the computer, setting up the everything from scratch and there goes a day! It shattered all my wishes. I freaked out thinking of all that data I could have lost, those photos that hold memories, those important mails...

And now here I am with my computer looking all fresh. I don't have my old wallpapers thus the feel of this system seems alien. I feel as if I have just entered a new home. I guess it'll take time to get adjusted!!

Random thoughts

Sometimes you find yourselves in such situations that you don't know what to do. You seem to have pros and cons on both sides. Even after your head does the rational thinking you are unable to make up your mind. For most Indians the heart rules your head. Occassionally I find myself at a point that my heart also does not choose any (not even secretly ;) )

I am really not sure what people do at that point of time. I am not the type who ask others for opinion and go ahead and do what they suggest. I just let time be and when the last moment of decision comes I just do what I feel at that point of time. Somehow I have come to know that this is what I have desired all along!!
