I don't wanna goto office

Today, I complete four golden years of my career. A couple of months, I wasn't motivated to goto office. It was a boring routine. Though, it was a different situation during the initial years of work.

My status message on Facebook and the response I received. ;)

The Zoya Factor

Drafted 12/08/2009


The IPL Cricket match commenced as I finished reading "The Zoya Factor" by first time author Anuja Chauhan with Hinglish(usage of both Hindi and English words) usage here and there. A young gal becomes the boon to the Indian Cricket Team with her presence making the team every match. 


Zoya Singh Solanki, born exactly during the time of World Cup when India won the cricket match in 1983. A happy go lucky gal enjoying her profession as an advertising professional is satisfied shooting with Shah Rukh Khan than the cricketers. Considered to be a "lucky charm" by her sibling brother, who would always drag her to the matches he played, though he would dislike her personally, for the sake of victory. :) Soon the media catches her attention and Ms. Zoya is forced to date and even sign up a couple of advertisements, travel the countries and have breakfast with the cricket team to make sure they win every match. Though, she   visits the countries like Australia without spending a penny, has a liberty bungee jumping; yet hates being a personality, she is left with no other choice. Every time, she refuses to have breakfast, India loses the match!


The lucky charm is disliked by the captain who believes only in hard work, determination and dedication and not pure luck. Zoya falls in love with him who gifts her a beautiful gold bracelet with a tiny sheep bought specially for her from New Zealand, though both hate each other at times and it is stupidity of others to rely on her for success.


The finals, ........ and Zoya doesn't turn up at the breakfast. 




Does India win or lose? Does she find her lost love? 


A complete juicy book I enjoyed reading. Kudos to you, Anuja!

Rating: 4/5

Flowers are without hope



Experimenting with my new Canon 50mm prime lens... Just another random click. 

"Flowers are without hope.  Because hope is tomorrow and flowers have no tomorrow."
  ~Antonio Porchia, Voces, 1943, translated from Spanish by W.S. Merwin

I learned the way a monkey learns ;)




Having clicked many pics of a monkey with my earlier camera. With my new DSLR, I decided to shoot this pic with monkey in the foreground. ;)

Couldn't think of a better title. :D

Flickr to Facebook

April 8, 2008:
Bought myself a 1 year Flickr Pro Account for unlimited photo upload. Being photography obsessed, uploaded every possible photo I clicked, be it good or bad. I, constantly, submitted few snaps to various groups on flickr and received positive feedback and a great scope for improvement.

April 8, 2009:
No longer photo enthusiastic. Lost in my own world of work! Damn. Flickr pro account expires and I don't care to renew it either. 

April 8, 2010:
Slow migration from flickr to facebook pages. It is much easier to maintain a photo set at a single site and have a huge fan followers. ;)


I am lost thinking I would upgrade my gear to a DSLR; visit new places and revisit the old ones, click 'em with a brand new lens as never before. How I wish I would get back to flickr!!!

On the greener side of 50 ;)

Drafted May 29th '10

If you are thinking I am 50, no I am not! Then what does the title relate to? :)

Like I said here, three years ago, how I begun to click owning Canon S3 IS. I pestered my teammates to pose for me and they were generous enough who always had a cheerful smile. :)

For more than an year, I was sketching to upgrade to a DSLR. After much confusion and hesitation to decide on the camera and lens. Finally, became a proud owner of Canon 50D, today. Thanks to peevee and A~ who accompanied to Foto Circle and spend hours together at the ever crowded shop.



Now, again like a fresher I am waiting for my salary to be credited after an account clean sweep. ;) ***cough cough***

Yet, on the greener side of 50. :D
