Nine Words Women Use

Nine words women use...

  1. Fine: This is the word women use to end an argument when they are right and you need to shut up.
  2. Five Minutes: If she is getting dressed, this means a half an hour. Five minutes is only five minutes if you have just been given five more minutes to watch the game before helping around the house.
  3. Nothing: This is the calm before the storm. This means something, and you should be on your toes. Arguments that begin with nothing usually end in fine.

Engagement And 27 Birthday

I thought of giving my friends and distant relatives a surprise by posting a blog entry that I'm going to get married soon. But I delayed this for so long that now probably everyone who knows me is informed of my marriage :). And for those who still don't know this, here is the official announcement. I'm no longer single and ready to mingle (oops ... did I just break someone's heart? :p). I am committed to Veena, a very sweet natured and cute looking girl. She is actually the sister of a very close buddy of mine, Vamsidhar. Our story is not very uncommon. We were initially good friends.


Confessions of a man

Got this as a forward from someone ...

I never quite figured out why the sexual urge of men and women differ so much. And I never have figured out the whole Venus and Mars thing. I have never figured out why men think with their head and women with their heart.

One evening last week, my girlfriend and I were getting into bed. Well,the passion starts to heat up, and she eventually says "I don't feel like it, I just want you to hold me."

I said "WHAT????!!! What was that?!"


First They Came

This is one of my favourite poems. I remember reading it in school and firmly believe in it. The summary of the poem is simple. If today you do not raise your voice for the down-trodden and the lesser fortunate, then tomorrow there will be nobody left to support you when in need.

When the Nazis came for the communists,
I remained silent;
I was not a communist.

When they locked up the social democrats,
I remained silent;
I was not a social democrat.

When they came for the trade unionists,
I did not speak out;
I was not a trade unionist.

When they came for the Jews,

What Does A Woman Want

Young King Arthur was ambushed and imprisoned by the monarch of a
neighbouring kingdom. The monarch could have killed him but was moved
by Arthur's youth and ideals. So, the monarch offered him his freedom,
as long as he could answer a very difficult question. Arthur would
have a year to figure out the answer and, If after a year, he still
had no answer, he would be put to death. The question was: What do
women really want?

Such a question would perplex even the most knowledgeable man, And to
young Arthur, it seemed an impossible query. But, since it was better


Completion of First Year at Synovel

The Meaning of Rahul

Rahul, a popular male name in India, has a variety of meanings. The earliest meaning found in the Upanishads is "conqueror of all miseries". Later use of the word is attributed to the Lord Buddha , who named his son Rahul as he felt that family ties could be an obstacle in the path to renunciation and nirvana. Lord Buddha uttered Rahul when he first saw his son and gave a new meaning "relationship" and "bondage" to this name. Rahul means Moon, Able/efficient in Sanskrit and Pali.Rahul also means "Traveler" in Arabic.
