What does it take to make someone happy?

--A smile
--A hug
--A pat on the back
--A call
--A message
--A letter
--A wink
When it is so cheap and something we can easily afford, they why are some people misers when it comes to make some one happy? I dont really understand.. why is it always give-give-give and never get back? True we shouldn't wait for the fruits, we should just do our deeds, but till when?
Sometimes I just want to give up...
Sometimes I just don't want to try anymore...
Sometimes all I wanna do is be alone... coz then I won't hurt anyone and no one will hurt me...

My project of a year and nine months ended and I was pushed into another one the very next day... Thankfully this one was a small one(or so it seemed then) and ended in a month's time. I have been having a great time office since the last couple of days (TOUCHWOOD), but to the awesome girls I have handed over the project too!!

I have been a fresher not long back and know the pain when you are to do something and you don't really know how to.. I also know it is tough when your seniors, expecially girls behave like bitches.. so I tried being pretty nice and friendly to these two. But to no avail, now that I am friendly and nice to them, they end up not listening what ever knowledge I have to transfer to them and I find myself telling them solutions to problems faced atleast 5 times earlier. So, when I sit and explain everything step by step to them, they wouldn't really try and understand or even question me (in case they have issues understanding the processs) , not note down the steps to resolve issues, and call me irrespective of the time... and then talk to me as if I am a long lost friend, girls I am not... When I don't talk to you without an "AAP", you cannot refer me with the "TU"... huh!!! No, I am not commanding authority, but then there is a behavior expected in a corporate world, isn't it?

I am extremely irritated... huh!!

Book Review :- TANTRA

I love vampire stories.
The craze for the super natural started from Harry Potter moved on to Twilight and has now come to "Tantra", our very own desi version of vampires!!

Overview of the book :-

Anu is a leather wearing, no-nonsense professional guardian with a reputation for killing the most dangerous vampires in New York City. But when her enemies murder the one person she truly cared about, all she wants is vengeance. The only clue points to New Delhi, so Anu puts in for a job transfer.

In India, she finds more than she expected. For one thing, her fellow operatives have made a truce with the vampires. For another, it’s way too hot to wear leather.

At first, it seems Anu’s biggest challenge will be evading the nice boys her aunt wants her to marry. But when children start disappearing, she discovers forces older and darker than anything she’s faced before. All of Delhi is in danger, especially the sexy stranger who sets Anu’s pulse racing.

To prepare for the coming battle, Anu must overcome her personal demons and put aside years of training. This time, her most powerful weapon will come from her mind, not her weapons belt.

My take on it :-

This is my first book review and I am so happy I got this book.

It is a light, must-read book. Anu, who is the heroine is a professional vampire killer. She takes a transfer from New York and heads to New Delhi to search for a vampire who killed the love of her life. But Delhi has a lot of surprises!! It takes her a lot of time to understand the system, to believe that the other members of his group have actually befriended the vampires and have mutually decided rules. On the personal front, she has to shift from the oh-so-chic girl to a "Delhi girl" who needs to wear the conventional Punjab suit.

Anu is a perfect blend of the typical 21st century girl ,if you keep apart the vampire killing. She has a will of her own and knows what she needs from her life. Her character is beautifully portrayed.The oh-so-over-friendly Amit, who is apparently another guardian and the only one in Delhi,Chandra, the stick-to-my-rules head of the vampire clan in Delhi, Anu's aunt who is adamant on her getting married ,Gaurav who is in love with Anu, Baba Senaka the powerful villian,Dr Sharma who teaches Anu how to fight the evil forces- every character is perfectly woven in the track.

The movie gently twists from Anu's professional life to her personal life as her aunt looks for a "PERFECT" match for her. She has to juggle between her career and life but then it aint that simple -

Then begins the rain of surprises...
Its not just vampires... there are old and dark forces that make Anu beat her own fears and fight, fight to save the world from the bad-guy tantric Baba Senaka.The narratives are good and I dint feel like keeping the book down.I loved reading the fight sequences, the flying shifts and the knives!!

Get your hands on it people!!
Light and nice, just the perfect blend!

Cheers Adi... I am waiting for the sequel, I really wanna know what happened to Brian's killer and Chandra and the romance kindling between Anu-Gaurav , Smiti-Amit..

The awesomeness called the "HALF FRIED"...

Put on the gas,
Place a pan on it,
Apply butter on the pan.
Take an egg,
Wash it nicely *Go on,Roll your eyes, I wash eggs before using and yes I know, that we don't eat the shell*
Pick up the spoon,
Make a slight crack , right in the mid of the egg,
And slowly and nicely, pour the contents on the pan, paying special attention not to break the inner yellow epicenter...
Gently sprinke salt and pepper...
Viola!!! a perfect half fried egg is ready to be relished!!
I am already feeling hungry :)

Such a miracle it is, yummy, gets cooked in 2 minutes(beats our dear friend maggi!!) , is healthy and filling too...........
I am loving it !
Do you??

$$ Richie Rich $$

Let's calculate :-

I spent around Rs 500/- to join a library which rented me two books at a time. Then I pay a monthly amount of Rs 250/- which is non refundable. Now the prices have increased multi fold... yes you read it right, not just doubled or tripled... but more than that! huh!! What are they thinking *rolls eyes*

So, now I have planned to buy books for myself.. Tan tana....

So, if I spend 500 bucks a month on buying books, I end up buying 1/2/3 books..

And depending on the number of pages, I end up reading them in a month or a month and half...

Given this pace and given the fact that I have sponsors (yeah!! two sweethearts who have agreed to sponsor my books.. love you both!! *with obvious terms and conditions apply*) can you guess how many books I will have by the next year.............. whopieeee

That makes me Miss Richie Rich.... $$$$$$$$

I just hope I can keep up my pace :)

Moments to cherish!
