My Shayari...

Trying hands on Shayari.. or Gazal.. or whatever u feel.... :) ... just read n enjoy (I am very optimistic...)

દીલના કોઇ ખુણામાં રાત-દીવસ અજંપો થયા કરે છે...
તમે મળ્યાના દિવસો નજર સામે પ્રત્યક્ષ થયા કરે છે...

ભૂલી શક્યો નથી હું આપણી એ નિરાધાર ભાવનાઓને....
હજુય ચાતકની જેમ આ નજર તારા સ્નેહ તણા પાણીની રાહ જોયા કરે છે...

Now waiting for WAH WAH WAH........

Yesterday was Uttarayan, aka Kite Flying day…

And first time in my life, I am not at Terrace, not in Gujarat in 26 years and yet I have no regrets for that… actually got two friends phone in the morning,, at that time felt sad for few minutes only.. nothing more...

When I was kid, I never ever thought I will not celebrate Uttarayan some day… I remembered there was always 2nd semester exams falls during these times of year and there was always dilemma weather to study or to fly kite… choice between boredom n fun and as always fun wins….. n it was great fun.. whole day with friends at Terrace, kites, songs loudly coming from speakers, Chikki n off course Cool chicks…

And I remembered, dad was not much interested in Uttarayan… he went to office to do work alone n only came at terrace for hour or two in the evening and I always wonder why… why dad was not interested in kite flying and more interested in work but today I can understand why…. Goals of life changed now… earlier flying kite high n cut other kites are far more important than getting good marks in exam… now finish work before deadline is more important than spending whole day at terrace with friends… so that’s how it is.. That’s how life works…..

Matheran Trip


Went to Matheran last weekend, 10 friends.. me..rinku..kavan…urvi…mehul..rajesh…sujal…hitesh..alok..anita…. Matheran is 105 KM from Pune, towards Mumbai… tiniest hill station in Asia (as read on Matheran Entrance). No vehicles allowed in Matheran, so you have to walk lot so be healthy if you want to enjoy it :) ….

To reach Matheran, we catch Sinhgad exp at 6:05 am in the morning, and reached Karjat at 8:05 am. No express train stops at Neral so you have leave Express train at Karjat and then catch local train for Neral which takes 10 minutes to reach Neral.

From Neral, there is Toy train from Neral to Matheran. It takes 2 hours to complete 20 kms but should go one time, it is enjoyable journey as it gone through Jungle and Hill area and we really loved it. U can go by taxi also. It charges 50 Rs per person which is fixed as on Jan, 2009. It takes only 20-30 minutes.

We booked Toy train tickets two weeks ago as there are only 4 bogies and no extra passengers allowed in train. And journey was thoroughly enjoyable.

Reached Matheran around 11:15 am, then it takes hour to book the hotel. Courtesy to Kavan, we got good hotel in our budget, Hill Top Hotel, which is nearby market and old home like ambiance.

After 20-30 minutes rest, we took lunch in garden view restaurant in market which is so so…. We explored Matheran, from Alexander point to ram bag to little chowk point which is mistake as only 3 points, we did lot of walking for two and half hour and after reach little chowk point, and we realized that now we cannot reach sunset point as it takes 2 hour to reach there. Although we tried but reach one tree hill point in 25 minutes after that we gave up for sunset point. But then we went to lord point and lake, saw sunset point from there and it was great, really enjoyable walking in jungle.

At night, as usual Rinku and Urvi went for shopping :( ... It didn’t cost me much this time. Chappals are real cheap here and Rinku bought 5 (including one for me and dad). We took dinner at Prasanna which was again ok ok…. But we enjoyed very much as it was taken with friendsJ.

Next day…. As usual…. All were very tired becoz of lots of walking a day before… so we ready by 11 am.. Played badminton at hotel and came to market and mehul went for shopping, and I don’t like that… I already felt irritated becoz of people got ready by 11… :( ...Why they don’t do shopping at night only so we could start sightseeing at least 11, but that did not happen and its lunch time… We (me..rinky..kavan..urvi) went for lunch…at ketkar restaurant, which was quite good compare to previous hotel and service was too fast.. We finished lunch in 30 mins only and it was quite cheap too…

Then at 1 pm, we started site seeing which was too late…only visited monkey point.. n then.. mehul ..rajesh..sujal went to jungle…. We others r tired so just rest at monkey point.. Reached dasturi naka from which you can take the taxi to go down… I offered to go down by walking as we had 3 damn free hours before our train but u know gujju people… too lazy to do hard work (exception for business).…we only likes eating..Chatting... & travelling in bus/taxi/train… so we came by taxi and get bored at station… so 2nd day was total waste because of lack of planning n laziness….

But still it was nice outing n enjoyed….

New Year Resolution and First Time Cycling to office

First day of New Year...as usually comes with new (or should i say renewed...) hopes... , new resolutions (which are mostly same as every years.....) ... same for me.... loss weight... 1st Jan, 2007-- my weight is 65.10, 1st Jan, 2008 -- 70.30 and 1st Jan, 2009 (Today) -- 73.65 ... good profit every year..... :) .... so as usual i want to loss as much as possible.... n other is SCWCD certification... (last year it was SCJP.. which i cleared with 93%..bingo... )........
so in the zeal of new year resolution, I went to office on cycle..... n it was....tired exp.... after reached office.. my legs were trembled for few minutes.. :( ..... and new exp on the road too... earlier while i was on bike and some cyclist came in my way.. i just annoyed why the hell that cyclist didn't break as his speed was slow so he can easily break n stop but today i am realizing that for cyclist, it is more annoying when some one come on the way... especially when u accelerated cycle n its in full or decent speed because its more easy in bike to accelerate after stop, but far more difficult to accelerate cycle again........ so now i will try to avoid cyclist way... :) ... n now goal is to go office ones in week ..for first month... rest......still not started reading on SCWCD......lets see when i m going to start.. at on weekend going to matheran.. two day trip....let see...
