Insomnia and Excel 2007

Having spent most of the night trying to catch some sleep, I gave up on the idea and decided to experiment with my favorite, all-purpose, universe-conquering software – Microsoft Excel 2007.

I had absolutely no clue I shall come up with the following:

Hello World!

In a sense, yes – Hello World!

After a long hiatus – decided to start writing afresh..

Why did the Turtle cross the road?

Dhruv, Bharat and I were returning to Mandak at about 1:30 am last night when we happened to notice a turtle at the road’s edge. Curiosity got the better of us and we tried to make friends with it -not realizing that our amphibian acquaintance wouldn’t quite welcome the advance! Frantic to get away, it emerged from it’s shell, and with all the courage it could muster – crossed the road..

Surprised at the sight, we continued to let it run wild – and were amazed at the speed with which it did! Who ever said Turtles were slow? Having reached the other side, it hurriedly buried itself beneath thick foliage and disappeared from view.

Surprising how Nature protects one of it’s creations from the others.

The Chase

Normal and I were returning from a placement meeting – chatting near Ganga at about 2:00 am when the bushes behind us erupted. Took me a second to absorb what was happening – it was a fawn chased by a pair of wild dogs.

The young deer shot past, closely followed by it’s attackers – waiting for the hint of a falter in their prey’s step, a slack in the sprint and the beasts would tear it apart.

My heart raced with them – and for some reason unknown, I ran after the dogs. No match for their speed, I finally caught up with the pack when they had cornered the whining deer. A security guard suddenly appeared and drove the dogs away. Skipped a beat, my heart. Just then.

The fawn went back to grazing grass at the Godav entrance.

Kitni baatein

Well, I’m posting this because I Love this song. Brings me to tears everytime I listen to it..

Kitni Baatein Yaad Aati Hain
Tasverein Si Ban Jaati Hain
Main Kaise Inhein Bhoolon,
Dil Ko Kya Samjhaon
Kitni Baatein Kahane Ki Hain
Hothon Par Jo Sahmi Si Hain
Ek Roz Inhein Sun Lo,
Kyun Aise Gumsum Ho

Kyun Poori Ho Na Paayee Daastan
Kaise Aayee Hain Aisi Dooriyan
Donon Ke Dilon Mein Sawaal Hain,
Phir Bhi Hai Khamoshi
To Kaun Hai Kiska Doshi,
Koi Kya Kahe
Kaisi Uljhanon Ke Ye Jaal Hain,
Jin Mein Uljhe Hain Dil
Ab Hona Hai Kya Haasil,
Koi Kya Kahe
Dil Ki Hai Kaisi Majbooriyan
Khoye The Kaise Raahon Ke Nishaan
Kaise Aayee Hain Aisi Dooriyan
Kitni Baatein …
Kyun Aise Gumsum Ho
Kitni Baatein…
Dil Ko Kya Samjhaon
