The sound track of my life

After I came across several sound tracks of lives for some of my fellow bloggers, I decided to give this one a try.

Pitu's was on her favorite semi-classical numbers and Memsaab's was on black & white (only!) Shammi Kapoor songs and then TBF's on Aamir Khan songs. So I wanted to specialize mine too.. but couldn't decide for the longest time, I started out with Shammi Kapoor's and then got bored of the categories and then came Rajendra Kumar. He too was so very charming but ran out of good songs of him that I really like for each of those categories.. so then I thought of HIM! That's right.. the Hunk of Bollywood - Salman Khan! I asked myself, who else could be better than him? Answer was NO ONE! So here goes, sound track of my life with Salman Khan songs. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did. :D

The task: For situations described, come up with song(s) that would apply to them in your life.

You'll have to get used to the fact that this guy is super cool and super hot so for some of the categories I've had to pick more than one song. ;)

Opening Credits: bechain hai meri nazar, Hum Aap Ke Hai Kaun

Waking Up: albela sajan aayo re, Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam

Pehli Mulaqat: pehla pehla pyaar hai, Hum Aap Ke Hai Kaun

Falling in Love: aate jaate jo milta hai, Har Dil Jo Pyaar Karega & kuch bhi nahin tha, Shaadi Karke Phas Gaya Yaar

First date: dekha hai pehli baar, Saajan

Tenth date: tum par hum hai atke yaara, Pyaar Kiya To Darna Kya & keh raha hai, Baabul

Wedding: tere ghar aaya... saajan ji ghar aaye, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai & jaan-e-bahara jaan-e-tamanna, Dil Ne Jise Apna Kahaa

Love Scene: bahot pyaar karte hai, Saajan & mere rang mein rangne waali, Maine Pyar Kiya

Fight Scene: sau dard hai, Jaan-e-man

Breaking Up: jhonka hawa ka aaj bhi, Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam

Getting Back Together: dil deewana dhoondh raha hai, Chaand Ka Tukda

Average Day: ek garam chai ki pyaali ho, Har Dil Jo Pyaar Karega

Life's OK: kabhi tu chhaliya lagta hai, Patthar Ke Phool

Flashback: tum se milna baatein karna, Tere Naam

Deep Thought: jiye to jiye kaise bin aap ke, Saajan

Mental Breakdown: tadap tadap ke is dil se, Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam

Learning a (dance) Lesson: chha raha hai pyaar ka nasha, Chandramukhi

Partying: yeh dil to mila hai, Dil Ne Jise Apna Kahaa

Songs on Rain: aankhon mein bandh kar loon, Sangdil Sanam

Happy Dance: oh oh jaan-e-jaana, Pyaar Kiya To Darna Kya

Sad Dance: dil deewana bin sajna ke, Maine Pyaar Kiya

Kid Song:I couldn't find a kids' song so picked this one that came closest to anything like a kid song - pehli pehli baar jab, Jab Pyaar Kisi Se Hota Hai

On Leadership: not really but sort of.. kahe tohse sajna, Maine Pyaar Kiya

Death Scene: no death scenes, this hero deserves no death on screen so putting up a parting one - mujh se juda ho kar, Hum Aap Ke Hai Kaun

End Credits: are you kidding me? no way... I give you the silliest and most fun number - bum bum... do mastaane, Andaz Apna Apna

A person's character

I've been thinking whether this is at all true or not.

You can know a person's true character by how they behave during a critical time in their life.

A Tag Full of Quotes

Took up this tag from Sandeep's.

Some of my favorite quotes are:

"It is our choices, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities." -Albus Dumbledore

"You can easily judge the character of a man by how he treats those who can do nothing for him." -Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

"That best portion of a good man's life, - his little, nameless, unremembered acts of kindness and of love." -William Wordsworth

"Every minute of every day is an opportunity to learn something new. Sharing what we learn with people around us is one of the best ways I know to give thanks for our ability to be educated. Books are great for sharing all kinds of experiences." -Ananda Lewis, RIF spokesperson and MTV VJ

"Be kind. Remember everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle." -John Watson

So what are your favorite quotes?

When Aishwarya emailed this morning...

It read as follows:

I am sorry I didn't inform you about my travelling to Africa yesterday evening for a program called "Empowering Youth to Fight Racism, HIV/AIDS, Poverty and Lack of Education, the program is taking place in three major countries in Africa which is Kenya, South Africa and Cote d’Ivoire .

Looking forward to hearing from you as soon as possible
Best Regards,

Actually, Aishwarya and I went to school together for more than 8 years and ended up discovering each other (thanks to google, of course!) after more than a decade only to find we live less than 20 miles of each other! That was a couple of years back and we've been in touch via all kinds of media since then. So the first thing I did when I read this email was "WHOA!" then I call up Aishwarya at her home number to make sure she's really in Africa before I wire her the much needed money. Guess what, she hasn't even dreamed about the Africa trip yet. It appears someone has hacked into her account and sent out this email. I gave her my share of tips and forwarded the email back to her telling her exactly what has happened.

The email had her actual full name but did not include my name, only my email address. Also, all the dollar amounts had bold face font, then she did not have her usual style of writing and then I had not even talked to her yesterday evening, all of that and more led me to think it might not be her, but I think if I didn't care enough I could have been fooled. So now I want to spread the word... please guys, change your password to something that's not in dictionary and beware of fake Aishwaryas that are going around. Here are some of the tips I had shared last year. But I got to tell you, this email I got violated the second point in this tips post.

Be safe and keep your email account safe!

PS. The name of my friend has been changed to not reveal her identity.
