Day 641

Finally the US visas have arrived. It was a pleasant surprise and i have got a 10 year multiple entry visa for USA. For a, now frequent traveling person, this is a great thing because now i can get visas for any other country at ease. The fact that i have decided to travel to atleast 2 european countries each year would be very easy considering i have got the US visa. So now i can get visas for any other country with much ease. In the last 1 odd year, i have been to 5 different countries world wide. I am hoping that in the next few months, i can visit atleast 3 different countries and 6 different cities. I have also decided that i will spend atleast 2 weeks every 6 month travelling to places i have never been before. Doing things that regular tourists wont usually do (How many people visiting Paris would visit the La Pere Cemetery or the Huge Ship Museum at Tracedero ?? How many would take the world of Ajax tour in Amsterdam??). Will keep you updated on the development through this block.
My work is going good. Its business as usual. Although i sure wished someone would change the music cd that they play during work hours. Have been listening to the same set of songs for nearly 4 months now and its getting really irritating. Maybe in the days to come, i will gift 'em a set of cds which has Pink Floyd and The Eagles.
There has been an interesting work concept, which is followed in a lot of factories in India, where the music is played while the people work. For any place where there is a lot of monotonous work, the output can be very low after a certain point of time due to boredom setting in.
In this case, when music is played, one tends, not to get bored, and gives a better output. This is a psychological factor and has proved to be right for over 50-60 years that the concept has been around.
Its working great in the office that i work, except that now we require a change of music :)
On a personal front, there is quite a bit of activity happening. There are certain legal procedures which have started for certain factors which have been piling up for a while now.
What will be the result could be anyone else's guess.
But i am only hoping that it will be a win-win situation for all the parties concerned.
I would surely be updating about this, in the coming week.
The festive season has started in India. Today was the final Day of the 10 day Ganesh Festival. The traffic, as it has been in the last 4-5 years, was very well managed. Thanks, also to the people who decided to stay home and not venture out due to the Ganesh Processions. Caught up with Mitul and Meghna and had a nice dinner at the nearby Kwality Restaurant.
For the first time, we ordered food fit for 5 people and finished every morsel. The food was outstanding. I have got a set of friends (The Fat Guy and Avatar Baba) with whom i can eat as if there is no tomorrow.
And it was nice to know that Mitul and Meghna are also a part of this elite category. :) :)
On Friday night, Scrooge and me happened to catch, Contagion. For those who dont know what it means, Google it. :)
It was a very well made movie and, in all likelihoods, it would be a very very very long time before Steven Soderberg decides to direct another movie.
I would give this one a 4 out of a 5 star rating for a near real depiction.
Well, its good bye from me, for now.
Hoping to update this blog in the next couple of days.

Its going to be another pack week with lots of work to do, but...bring it on...I say.

And to end...a beautiful poem for my beloved....

I don't think you will
ever fully understand
how you've touched my life
and made me who I am.

I don't think you could ever know
just how truly special you are
that even on the darkest nights
you are my brightest star.

I don't think you will ever fully comprehend
how you've made my dreams come true
or how you've opened my heart
to love and the wonders it can do.

You've allowed me to experience
something very hard to find
unconditional love that exists
in my body, soul, and mind.

I don't think you could ever feel
all the love I have to give
and I'm sure you'll never realize
you've been my will to live.

You are an amazing person
and without you I don't know where I'd be.
Having you in my life
completes and fulfills every part of me.
