Bucket list

After a hiatus,I am back.I was lazy and I was busy. :-)
Tagged by Ruminations

Well here they are.

1.Sky diving,bungee jumping and white water rafting-All for the adrenaline rush....
Was always fascinated by these,now since ppl I know also have started doing these ..
Hopefully I will do this sooner or later.

2.Travel to all those exotic places where nature is the King.Places like
Kashmir,Norway,Swiss,Greece,Cannes etc.Places where its not castles and other monuments which has importance.
Swiss was one dream realized. :)

3.Drive through Autobahn and hit the max speed.Narrowly missed out on this one.
Should have converted my Indian Driving License to Deutsch and drove all those BMWs,Mercs,Audis and Porsches.
For the uninformed autobahn is one of the few highways in the world where there is no max speed limit!


4.Get an MBA degree.Wanted to do one since in school,hopefully in a couple of years it will materialize.

5.Read all the books and watch all the movies made.....:)


6.Learn to Salsa.Dancing has always impressed me but never learned though.

7.Have a career,where you are in a business suit most of the time.
Just for jaada ;)

8.Take my parents and brothers for a Euro trip.

9.Own a summer house in some hill station.

Hmm...Right now I can think of only these things.....I will update the blog as and when I find some interesting things to pursue ......

PS:Thanks Dhanya for tagging me...had forgot how to write itself.

Thank u all teachers....

This post would have been apt on Teachers day....But to remember my favorite teachers and write about them anyday is no cardinal sin.

First and formost I would like to thank all teachers who taught me...From LKG to 12th.But there are some teachers who are really special...


My UKG teacher --Helen teacher....she was kindness personified the right person to teach tiny tots.A teacher who loved children to no ends.
And the best thing ..she got my name correct ,even though I was visiting her after 15years.... :)

From 1st to 4th it was my Mom who taught me everything.she was the one responsible for me getting those proficiency awards....She kinda pushed me into the top league...

5th Std ....that was the worse year in School in terms of academics....But I did get some great friends there...Mom stopped teaching me!!! I was njoying the new freedom like anything...No more moms pinches,no more asking qns.....And it started showing on the results also.....It is in this class I got a new teacher --a 10th std kid --Who helped me with my maths --Leo Chettan.

I owe a lot to you!! You are the first person who instilled a genuine interest in maths.It was you who made me realize how lucky we were to be born to parents who want their wards to study and who are more than willing to shed out that extra money so that we get the best...I am very thankful for everything you did.


Jose Paul Sir .my class 7,8,9 and 10 malayalam teacher....U are the best language teacher...U helped me nurture interest in literature,movies etc.U made me realize i can write well in Malayalam.U were our regular tour teacher..I remember u asking my dad permission,so that i can come for the tour...thanks for everything...

Benny Sir...I wont forget the way you nurtured my interests in Maths...U helped me alot..I still remember u telling my parents not to worry abt me...and he considered me as his son.....That says it all :) Thank you ....

Lakshmanan Sir...For removing my stage fright and nurturing my leadership skills...
U are the first person who made me realize I can be a class leader or school leader if I wanted to...Thanks for giving me the oppurtunity..

Murali Sir..The most strict teacher I ever had...But with the heart of gold.Thanks for giving the idea which won 1st prize for Maths fair...

Manoj Sir...Another malayalm teacher...Thanks for helping us out in our Youth festival dramas......

Late Philip father...our headmaster...who taught us chemistry...I will always remember that "chevi pirikkal"...when I the class leader was making the loudest noise in Class :).....U had a unique style of teaching and an effective one also...

Premanand sir...Holy angels tuition centre...u rock big time...I guess who all studied out from Kannur would know abt u ....U have a special knack of teaching and the best thing u make it interesting...




Sunil Sir...My 11th and 12th maths teacher...The coolest teacher on earth....
More like a friend (outside the class ie)with whom we can decide anything under the sun..We all love u for that...

And the best teacher I ever will have ...MOM...I know u really worked hard and prayed hard for my success in exams ,tests what all..

Thank u...thank u for everything my teachers.... :)

Rendezvous with the Star!!!

Its being some time I wanted to write about this!
Guess whom we came across in Brussels???? None other than
Tamil Supestar--Rajnikant!!!!Thalaivar.....

We had gone on a trip to Brussels,and boy oh boy this was special.....
Brussels was celebrating the EU birthday ,so it was celebrations all around.
After visiting most of the places we were about to retire to our rooms,that suddenly we thought about going to some bar or disc....but finally we took the wayside bar option.

While we were enjoing our cocktails,out of the blue came Rajnkikant and his daughter!!! The initial euphoria was just brilliant--4 of us just stood up with our eyes wide open..Seeing our enthu he came over to our place.Asked us about our well being and posed with us!!!!
To be true he was the most simple celebrity I have seen to this day!!!!He was down to earth and full of warmth.

These days I am like a chinna thalaivar in office ;)............
All the tamil speaking population in office consider me to be the luckiest in this planet.....
Thalaivar.....
