As the year 2005 winds to a close and we all prepare for the Christmas holidays and the start of a new year, I want to take this opportunity to once again thank all the people I came across this year and made a big difference in my life. I saw some ups & downs, highs & lows, good times & tough times and shall strive to retain those memories for first time ever. I usually start afresh each year and eagerly look forward to a new start of New Year, the new challenges in life. I guess this year I shall carry some old baggage with me for various reasons. Moving on with this post, this will be the final update I send out until January, so I also want to wish all of you Happy Holidays & a Happy New Year now. I hope your holidays will produce great times and great memories. But even as we close the book of 2005, I want to remind you that there might still be scads of issues left unresolved - plenty of unfinished business to be taken care of. So lets get right back to it after this anecdote that I intend to mention here.

My eldest sister once said I need to smarten up and read more – like a whole book – and I started with ABCs. Then she gave a book – "The Famous Women". The first thing I learnt was that women need credit for every thing they do. I got into trouble for saying that aloud and she said the moment she took the road she would see signs that declare – "Men at work" and proclaimed that they don’t need such signs as "I’m cooking, washing clothes or doing dishes" in the kitchen. Then after a little while as I expressed my surprise at the first lady to fly aircraft over the ocean I exclaimed that she indeed maneuvered a fascinating feat by flying across the large ocean, without taking a break to visit the restroom. Further it is an accomplishment as there was no other lady to accompany her to the restroom, incase she had to visit. This broke the hell loose and my sister declared that all the great explorers were men – men who wouldn’t ask for directions. I couldn’t talk any further as I realized that she had more ammunition than I do. So I resigned (and read "The Famous Men").
I am not bitter, and am just expressing my testimony. ;-)

I am going back HOME on 29th December 2005 and shall return during the first week of February 2006.

My eldest sister - First child – a beacon & hope for the new generation, very organized.
My second sister Middle child - Sometimes she feels invisible.
Myself - Last child – have the right to cuddle up and act as a baby.

number mail karo :-)
