The funniest thing I read today... :D

So next Harry Potter movie trailer is out and he's all over the place yet again. While browsing reading HP news, I came across Daniel Radcliffe's biography on IMDB and guess what I see!? LOL!! Of all the actors, he likes Aishwarya Rai??? I mean Aishwarya Rai?? Oh c'mon, Dan, you can do better than that. LOL I can't stop laughing... what is he thinking?

"Favorite actors include Aishwarya Rai, Cameron Diaz, Scarlett Johansson and Ben Stiller."

The Control Freak Mind

Mind is all upset with anger squirming inside
It is all falling apart and you just can't hide
All your troubles are taking over like a high-tide
Then you realize your sanity has committed suicide
And there's no way to get out of this subside
You wish you had someone, who you can go and confide
Can't it be any simpler?
Can't it be any less complicated?
And why? These questions and my brains collide

It is a regular working day

As I sit on this chair idly
Molecules in my brain have become inactive

For this moment will become part of memory
Eventually to fade away like light of setting Sun
Escaping this emptyness seems impossible
Longing to have a goal, any goal
Infinite number of ideas springing in mind, but
Numbness of those cells doesn't let them sink in
Gaping, these moments pass one after the other

Lost amid the ocean of meaningless thoughts
Observing my brain waves
Sitting here absentmindedly
To find that goal someday

Don't you feel like screaming?

When they make you bang your head on wall
And everything seems to lose control...

When they piss you off bigtime
And everyone just loves to whine...

When they annoy the heck out of you
And everyone just demands from you...

When they make you want to pull your hair out
And everything just seems to fall apart...

When they make you go nuts
And everything just seems like a rut...

It is now all just very crazy
And everything around is just too hazy.

*deep breath*

Entry for November 03, 2006

It is wonderful day today! For two reasons:

(1) Dada/Motabhai/KKJani was born on 10th November 106 years ago. I feel very proud to have him as grandfather. Since quite a few days I have been remembering him and I am reminded of some of the things I knew about him and other things I heard about him from others.

He was very simple man. Lived simple life, ate simple food. That is something I would like to learn in my life from him is to be simple in everything you do.

When he was young, he went to Mumbai for work. When he returned after a couple of years he found out that his grandfather - Ambashankar Jani - had passed away. When Kashiramdada told him that Ambashankar dada did not want him to return back to Mumbai, he decided he would never go back to Mumbai. Since that moment he never set foot in Mumbai as long as he lived.

He was very strict when his children were young but became like a good friend to them as they grew older. As his granddaughter, I was always too scared to go near him when I was a kid but as I grew older, I got to know him more and felt more comfortable around him.

When I think of him, I am reminded of him sitting in his chair and writing with his black-rimmed glasses on. He was a fantastic writer. He wrote articles in numerous magazines and periodicals. Some of them include Jan Kalyan, Geeta Dharma, Ramakadu (kids' periodical), and many more. I am having hard time recalling all of them at the moment. All his writings are sitting in a cabinet at home in Ahmedabad right now. Some of them never been published. Wish I get to fulfill my dream of having them published some day.

Thank you, Dada for everything you’ve given to us.

(2) I found out only this morning that it is also Mukta Ba's birthday today! She has turned 85 today. A very happy birthday to my darling grandmother. I really miss her very much.

An amazing woman is what I consider her. Always stood by my grandfather and raised her children well. Such considerate woman, always doing things for others without saying a word, without any complaints. Never interfering in anyone else’s life unless asked, is something to learn from her. Very tolerant woman who has suffered her share of hardships in life but never let her bad experiences affect her behavior. It is difficult to be such a person.

Every time I eat ice-cream I am reminded of her. She is a BIG ice-cream fan! It is great fun to sit next to her and enjoy those one or two bowls of ice-cream with her. Those moments that I could spend with her when I visited her are truly blessed moments. Wish I get to do that more often and for longer period of times.

I pray to God for her good health. I thank her for being who she is. Thank you, Ba, for everything you’ve given to us.

And a very special thank you to Dhruvamama for sending me birthdates of maternal grandparents, and great grandparents. Dhruvamama, I can’t thank you enough. I don’t have words. It is indeed a beautiful day! Happy day!
