Can anyone say.. whoz more beautiful..???

Baat kahat rass rangg uuchaliitaa... baat kahat rass rang uuchhaliitaa.
Phoolan ke mehel biraajat douu... mandd sugandh.. nikat vahe saritaa.
Baat kahat rass rangg uuchhaliitaa.. baat kahat rass rang uuchaliitta.

Mukhh milaay hass dekhat darpan mein...
sundar shramit uur maal vigaliitaa.
Parmanand prabhuu prem vivashh bhaye...

Kahii hum mein.. sundar ko hai lalitaa...???

Baat kahat rass rangg uuchhaliitaa.. baat kahat rass rang uuchaliitta.

Hmm... As Summer has come adn temperature is really rising high... so ths is one of the beautiful kirtan which is sung these days at temple nd at our home as well.

It says tht... one sunny day... Krishna nd radha and all their frnds (sakhaas nd sakhiis) were having a good time at palace made of different variety of flowers.. it was so beautiful place wher so many flowers had made tht place so beautiful by spreading ther sweet frangrance all over.. nd on other side.. river was making sweet voice by flowing gently.

And Krishna nd Radha both were admiring each other's beauty and shringaar by looking into a mirror. And then they call one of their favourite sakhii 'Lalitaa' and ask her tht ... say lalitaa... whoz more beautiful from both of us...???

And u knw wht... as story says... tht whn they ask laliita.. Krishna feels tht she shld say Radha's name while Radhajii feels tht Laliitaaji shld say Krishna's name... hmm... wht a sweet nd lovely feeling.. isnt it?

Good one naa... me too humming it all day ... i jst love it :)

Unique Insight

Just take some time off to see this clip named 'Hostel' a public service film created by 4 mumbaikars which left some strong impressions on the minds of people for which no. of ppl came forward to pledge their eyes.

The clip starting with a group of hostel children splashing colours on the occasion of Holi. U feel so nice.... childrens spraying colours on each other nd running around.... dirtying the corridors.

But.. to one's surpirse... the clip ends with the hostel warden wiping the colours off their white canes. And ... slowly... the colours r washed away nd u can see the board of ‘Smt Kamla Mehta Dadar School for the Blind’.

The last scene of a child asking the warden.... wht the colour green looks like?... It really made me cry.

Yes... the movie conveys one motivating msg tht 67 ppl, including the creators of the film.... hav agreed to donate their eyes after seeing this film.

These ppl came up with ths innovative idea nd posted it on youtube.. And u knw wht... within the first week itself, they had 7,000 hits.... with many ppl approaching the Eye Bank Association of India (EBAI) with pledges flooded with no. of calls and emails.

One can fill an online form pledging their eyes or they can alternatively call the eye bank helpline 1919 for details.

Wanna go for a ride.....?

Revathy Roy is all set to launch her Forsche - A women-by-women taxi service, will flag off in the Mumbai city on March 19 for lady commuters, working women, tourists, etc. which will also have magazines, make-up kits, etc. but... of course... at price.

English-speaking, women dressed in a purple-pink salwar kameez will drive women.

It will work entirely on a booking system and the cab has to be booked either for half a day or an entire day.

Ths cool cab wld also provide big mirrors, a make-up kit with nail polish remover and a magazine rack.

The woman driver would be well-versed with the city roads as well as shopping malls and complexes.

Hello everyone!
Hope u guys had a wonderful Valentines day nd a colourful Holi :)

Hmmm.... so m back after a long break.
As my template says.... therz so much to tell... so much of talks to share with u all...

Here r some highlights. It all started with my 10 days trip to Gujarat to attend my cousin’s wedding at Porbandar. So first we (I and Mom) went to Jaamnagar to my Dad’s aunt’s place (2 days stay) missed going to Dwarka coz of shortage of time :( And then reached Porbandar, attended the wedding and also went to some good places over ther like Gandhiji’s House (Kirti Mandir) with 22 rooms, library, paathshala for kids, etc. beautifully maintained, Kasturba’s House (quite near from Gandhiji’s place), Sudamaapurii, Temple dedicated to Lord Krishna’s friend Sudaamaa, Harii Mandir (beautiful temple), etc and thn came to Rajkot (stayed at one more relative’s place) and came back to Mumbai.

Gandhiji & Kasturba's House

After 10 days break, got completely occupied with work at office, so much of wrk load, was working on Saturday as wel…:(

Aha… in between came Valentine’s day… sad part is I was on audit tht day… so cldnt even meet my frnds… :( Hope u all had a wonderful V Day :)
During ths busy week…. came one more festival called Holi – Festival of colours… hope u all had a colourful holi with lots of Abiir, gulaal, sprinklers nd aha most tasty Thandaai. As it is said that, ths is the festival which shows devotion of Bhakt (Prahlad) to Vishnu and the eternal friendship of Krishna nd gopis. We enjoy singing kirtans wher v all play pranks on Krishna like Aaj bhorr hii...nand poor hii... vrajnaariin dhoom machaaii, Kaajarvaarii gorii gwaarii.. yaa saawaliaa kii lagwaarii, Saachii kaho mannmohan moso.. toh kheluu tumm sang horii and "Harii Kaaro rii harii kaaro.. ye toh do baapan beechvaaro rii… harii kaaro rii harii kaaro"…ths is one of the best kirtan… Nd many such other kirtans which shows eternal friendship with Lord Krishna.. :) Missed all these this time.
Thn month end came nd we all had once again a much awaited Budget with

I-T exemption raised by Rs 10,000 and BCTT (Banking cash transaction tax) to kick in at Rs. 50,000 instead of Rs 25,000, Education cess raised from 2% to 3%.

Ceiling on deduction allowed for medical insurance premium raised to Rs 15,000; Rs.20,000 for senior citizens.

Dividend distribution tax (DDT) on companies raised from a basic rate of 12.5% to 15%; on money market MFs and liquid MFs, DDT hiked to 25%.

Peak customs duty on non-agricultural products brought down from 12.5% to 10%.

I-T surcharge removed on SMEs with taxable income of less than Rs 1 cr nd Service tax exemption limit on small service providers doubled to Rs 8 lakh.

Major shot was for IT firms will now have to pay min alternative tax (MAT) and Employee stock options (ESOPs) brought under FBT net.

Overall… Pay Tax, Tax nd more Tax.... not so good review for the budget as usual.

In the meanwhile… my Grandmom was not keeping well…got infection in lungs due to which she was unable to breathe…. and was hospitalized. Her condition worsened day by day… all 10 days on oxygen and saline…. we were all trying hard to make her all well… everyone of us having sleepless nights…. But as its all in God’s hands… the day came… it was sat… nd it was jst a normal day… she was feeling good, talked to everyone who all came to visit her… even promised mom tht now she wld start walking on her own once she reach home… her was shining… night passed safely… but…. Sunday early morning she got high temperature…. Nd her pulse rate started decreasing… she asked me to call everyone… nd I was scared… called up everyone. By 7.30 everyone was beside her…. Nd slowly slowly she closed her eyes nd left us forever…. all standing with tears in our eyes… speechless… helpless.

No doubt ur blessings wld always be ther with us but will always miss ur care and affection and above all ur presence. Missing u daadii.

Ok thn.. m signing off now… Hey.. Belated Happy Women's Day to all beautiful ladies :) and now waiting for World cup… ICC Champion’s Trophy ….
Wishing Good luck and All the very best to Our Team India… Just do it :)
