Happy Birthday !

Its your birthday and well I am like calvin here…

Never ever able to comprehend what to say or what to gift….

but you know what… you taught me the best thing to do… and nothing can express, nothing can explain or comprehend the joy and love I feel for you but this picture πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

Wish you a very very Happy Birthday Hobbes πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚



why ?


just why ?

why didn’t you try..

it would never have been so wry…


choices were made without any compulsions…

then why cast all the delusions…

raising false expectations…

and dashing all emotions…


but life must move on…


no one but oneself to blame…

pointing fingers is so lame…


pay up you must…

make up you must…


that’s all that you can do…

back on the prowl…

all of a sudden they are back from hibernation..

not they were done and dusted… but they were certainly lying low…

but in the last couple of weeks they certainly are making the right noises…

First we heard from the elder sibling about a buy back of his shares which were down about 35% last year.

Then we hear the younger one has just sold 26% stake from Reliance Cap’s Amc business to Nippon at a record 7% valuation of AUM for some 1400 odd crores…

Next up we hear today Reliance gets ready for 4G Triple play… !

A few days back one friend of mine who invests quite regularly in stocks and studies them too commented to me, they say voice call days are numbered. Its time for Data Calls. Now when Data calls will take full steam the person who will benefit the most is people who have a spread out optical fibre network and Reliance communication is probably the leader in this ! πŸ˜›

Yes, it suddenly is on the front pages ! It suddenly is on head lines… and the stock is moving… !!!

time to outperform

Call this post what you like… but for a guy who has been accumulating the stock now for 2 years… its Music better than AR Rehman can deliver !!!!

Its time for the gujju boys to start delivering and take the markets up with them… πŸ˜›

healthy girls needed ! :)

The story so far….

The Ghost who Eats shifted to Bharuch from Jamnagar in 1989, St. Xaviers, Jamnagar lost one of its budding Sprinters and that was the gain of Rungta Vidya Bhavan, Bharuch :mrgreen:
The new school had one sprint queen, her nick name was P.T. Usha… She was the sprint queen of this school πŸ™‚
It took Milkha Singh & P.T. Usha another 10 years time to realize that this was a match made already and the rest… well … as they say, is historyΒ  πŸ˜› πŸ˜›
Anyways this story is not about Milkha Singh and P T Usha, but its about their first descendant that came in 2004 …



It all happened yesterday…

he had a race at his school yesterday he told at 6.45 am whilst I was busy dressing him up

“The winners will run on sports day !” he announced πŸ™‚

So when he came back from school, the former sprinter had to inquire about the race…

“So, what happened at the race ? Did you get selected ?”

“The race didn’t happen”

“Huh ?”

“They had done a race a few days back, they selected from it !”

“Oh, so were you selected ?”


he says without watching as he is busy washing his hands and getting ready for lunch

“Why ?”

“They selected only the first two.”

He said sitting on the table and reaching out for the glass of water…

( Have you ever come across a kid who doesnt have a problem of excessive water drinking while eating ?! :-/ )

“So what was your position ?”


“Oh, close… never mind… btw who came first ?”

“Aayaan also came Third.”

“I didn’t ask about Aayaan, I asked who came first ?”


I couldn’t help interrupting…

“How can so many be 1st and how can Aayaan and you both be third ?”

“We ran in pairs of three and we both were the third 😐 “



I and wifey looked at each other in disbelief and then said together almost instantly together..

“Hriday, tune hamara naam mitti mein mila diya, we both were race champions in our school and YOU ?!”

The kid couldn’t take this embarrassment stop himself and blurted it out …

“They all did cheating how can we win ?”

“Its ok, Hriday, we are just kidding ! Don’t say they cheated just coz you weren’t first”

“Arrey Shu… You know they gave me and Aayaan very chutku mutku girls as our partners !!! They gave all the Hatti Gatti girls to others !! How can I win the race with such Chutku Mutku partner… only if they had given me a HATTI GATTI Girl PARNTER !!!!! ” :-OΒ 

He said showing the height of the girl partner at his waist.. indicating very strongly that she was so short and thin, she couldn’t run fast…we later understood that it was a relay race where the girl was supposed to give a bottle of water as the baton to the boy and then race. He was so trying to forget the disappointment and that is exactly where his Sprinting Mom and Dad bruised his Ego !!! Sigh…. :-/

The descendant couldn’t care less as he went from Roti to Bhindi and butter milk with a weird whats got into you guys look as his Sprinting Parents couldn’t stop Giggling and repeating Hatti GATTI and Chutku Mutku !!!!! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

Detoxified ! :P

I dont know if you have heard of Bell’s Palsy, I never had !

What started as wifey complaining of “aankh phadakna” and jokes followed citing I am going to have it… it increased, we thought to ignore but within 24 hours it seemed like her face was crooked, we eventually rushed to our family doc and she insisted we go to a Physican and that she suspected Facial nerve paralysis, she assured us it had nothing to do with diabetes and it was viral and most importantly she repeated quite a few times looking at us gaping that it was fully recoverable !!!!

Almost all the doctor’s which I knew and our Physician all calmed our nerves down that it was totally recoverable, just requires a few steroids, anti-virals and multi vitamins with regular Physiotherapy. So began the ordeal, thankfully wifey started showing signs of improvement after 1 week and now after 6 odd weeks almost no one can spot her Palsy, although still 95% recovered she has now stopped Physiotherapy and medicines both ! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

About last week or so I thought since so many steroids and antivirals have gone in maybe in her christmas vacation she should do some detox diet of sorts, searching on the net was slightly boring and difficult and I posted my request on FB and while Tara gave me a rather interesting suggestion, I bailed out… but hey our blogsphere is kind and I managed to get hold of our veri own Desi cook Sangeeta to plan a detox that was totally customised as per our Dosha !!! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

I didn’t know Sangeeta was so much into the food stuff, it became clear that cooking being an interest and a hobby apart, she is quite good and knows a lot about food and when I say a lot I mean A LOT !

Actually I didn’t really want to go on a Detox diet as my taste buds are way too greedy, however, it was important I would do it to encourage wifey along the way and get all the med’s flushed out. Sangeetha was kind enough to not just make a diet plan to detox, she also took the pain to ask everyday what were our likes dislikes, what were the veggies, grains we could manage what we couldnt and whats more she even took the pain to bow to my WHIMS !!! πŸ˜› πŸ˜› πŸ˜›

Sangeeta actually does specialize and pursues making Personalized Diet Plans for all those who you want a nice workable and personalised diet plan for themselves with weight loss targets or for diabetes friendly lifestyle or for a heart friendly plate πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ So if you are looking for some discipline in your life and at the same time dont want to disappoint your taste buds just ping her !!!!

The best part of the diet plan was that it was filled with food that was delicious, infact most things for us were new and since I and wifey love experimenting and trying new things we loved it !!! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ Some of the dishes like Greenbeans stir fried and fruit chaat’sΒ  were favourites for everyone else at home who weren’t even on the Detox Plan ! πŸ˜› πŸ˜› πŸ˜›

Not only the guts were scrubbed and flushed they were even soothed and then made to top class ! By the end of the week we both felt lighter, better, cleaner and I even thought my skin was improving !!!! Lol I actually felt I was turning a bit GORA !!!! :mrgreen: I am colour obsessed !!!! πŸ˜› Whilst our goal was not at all to lose weight, I actually I just measured my weight today that I am 1.5 kgs lighter ! πŸ˜€ The best part of the diet was at no point was I hungry, infact at times it would seem like I am full do I really have to eat that πŸ˜› πŸ˜› πŸ˜› !!!!

and now that I have totally Detoxed !!!! πŸ˜‰ its time to Dive into a Chocolate icing !!!! πŸ˜› πŸ˜› πŸ˜› πŸ˜› I know… I can see Sangeeta #FACEPALM !!!! but well…. The ghost can’t stop eating all and sundry !!!! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€
