5. Pineapple
6. Papaya
7. Mango
8. Cherry
9. Black Grapes
10. Peach
11. Custard Apple
12. Pear

Did you know that you can tell what kind of personalities people have

by the kind of fruits they like?

Click on the name of the fruit you picked to see your personality.


If an orange is your favorite fruit, it speaks of a person who
has enduring patience and willpower. You like to do things
slowly, but very thoroughly and are completely undaunted by
hard work. You tend to be shy, but are reliable and a
trustworthy friend. You select your partner with care and you love
with all your heart. You avoid conflict at all costs.


If an apple is your favorite fruit, you are an extravagant,
impulsive and outspoken person, often with a bit of a
temper. While you may not be the best organizer yourself,
you make a good team leader and are good at moving things
forward. You can take quick action in most situations. You
enjoy travel immensely. You ooze with charm when you are
with your partner. You have an enthusiasm for life,
unmatched by most.


You are a softie! Loving, gentle, warm and sympathetic by
nature is the banana lover. You often lack in
self-confidence and are quite timid by nature. People often
take advantage of your sweet temperedness, and sheer
vulnerability to a situation. You adore your partner in
every which way, both for their mental and physical beauty!
Because of the way you are, your relationship is always very
much in harmony!


The coconut lover is a serious, very thoughtful and
contemplative person. Though you enjoy socializing, you are
particular about the company you keep. You tend to be
stubborn but not necessarily foolhardy. Shrewd, quick-witted
and alert, you ensure that you are right on top of any given
scenario, especially at work. You need a partner with brains
and while passion is important it certainly isn't
everything for you.


You are quick to decide and even quicker to act.
You are brave in making career changes.
You have exceptional organizing abilities and are
undaunted by the size of the task at hand. You tend to be
self reliant, sincere and honest in your dealings with
others. Though you don't often make friends very
quickly, once you do, it is for life. You rarely, if
ever, make romantic overtures. Your partner is often
impressed with your sterling qualities but disappointed in
your ability to show affection.


You are truly fearless and take much that happens in life
in stride. You give considerable thought to things you
do. You have a sense of humor that along with your generous
nature keeps you in most people's good books. You are a
go-getter in your professional life, and have a knack for
being in the right place at the right time. You enjoy
meeting new people and seeing new sights whenever you can.
Your sense of humor is what attracts members of the opposite
sex to you more than anything else. It is simply charming!


A mango lover is a personality to be reckoned with, quite
often it's a person who has quite fixed ideas, and
influencing you is not an easy task. You tend to be an
extremist with strong likes and dislikes, and at times even
like to control a situation. You enjoy getting involved in
something that presents mental challenge. Strong as you may
be, you are like a kitten when you are with your partner.
You accommodate the love of your life, and make up for all
the strong will elsewhere!


If cherry is your favorite fruit, life isn't always as sweet
for you. You often face ups and downs, particularly
professionally, and find that you make small sums of $$$,
instead of a lump sum. You have a fertile imagination and
are often involved in creative pursuits. You are a very
sincere and loyal partner, but find that expressing your
feelings is not very easy. Your home is your haven, and you
love nothing more than being surrounded by close family and
your beloved partner.


You are a polite person in general, but do have quick
flare-ups of temper that cool down just as quickly. You
enjoy beauty in all forms, including beautiful people. You
are very popular because of your warm, gregarious nature.
You have a zest for life, you enjoy everything you do, right
from the way you dress, to your style and your day-to-day
life. Your partner must share your zeal and zing for life to
enjoy all you have to offer!


Like a peach, you enjoy the juice of life and all its lush
ripeness! You are the friendly sort, and are quite frank and
outspoken, which adds to your charm. You are quick to
forgive and forget; and value your friendships highly. You
have an independent and ambitious streak in you, that makes
you a real go-getter. You are the ideal lover, fiery and
passionate but sincere and faithful in love. You don't
however like to display all that passion in public.


You are a modest and conservative person who can be quite
sensitive at times. You tend to be thoughtful and
contemplative, and therefore are rarely rash in doing
things. You are quite ambitious and are good at anything
that requires much detailing or working with numbers. You
are quick at finding fault with others. While looking for a
partner, you value a person's intellect far above their
looks or good old passion. You are quite shy and not very
comfortable demonstrating affection.


If you put your mind to something you can do it successfully,
but by and large you tend to be fickle and have trouble
completing a task with the enthusiasm you started it with.
You need to know the results of your efforts almost immediately.
You enjoy mental stimulation and love to get into a good discussion!

H... is also coming back

Hey just a few days back i was so happy that one of my friends is coming back to India, and on Tuesday i got to know that another friend of mine is also coming back. Wow!!!! I am so happy. She was my closest friend after i joined the company...
We were roomates for nearly year and a half. I know that doesnt make u close to a person. But she is so sweet, that anybody who spoke to her, would love to be her friend.Well i would say i was lucky that i became her close friend. Me being very very talkative and she being a good listener was a nice combination. I remember me troubling her till 12 or 1 in the night. From 7 or 8 in the evening, till this time, we shared our views, our thoughts, our whole day. I used to tease her a lot too. But yes, inspite of all this fun filled moments, there were lot of serious moments in our lives, and i could always find her with me or i would say we were with each other. We never used to hide anything with each other. What we felt for other people or even for each other was either told directly or was understood by the other person.
And ofcourse like always there were a few changes in life, work and other stuff started to drift us apart, and yes, we even fought. There were times when we werent speaking to each other. Something like a cold war i would say. Both knew that we missed each other, but still there was a barrier. But how long can 2 close friends be far apart. But by the time we could get back to normal. She had to go to US. And she went in Dec last year. Ad now she is gonna come back. I am sooooooooo happy. I wont deny that the day she left, i cried. Atleast my eyes were moist and she saw me and said "Don't cry. I'll be back soon" :)
After that ofcourse we were always in touch. Thanks to mails and yahoo messenger. :). Infact she had sent me a gift with one of my friends, a soft... no very very soft lion :)
Now she s coming back. I am just waiting to meet her... Hope she comes back soon and our good old days are back :)

Little Things Mean A lot!!!!!!!

I just got this mail in the morning from one of my friends as a fwd...
But i really loved this and it was as if someone just poured out the thoughts from my mind. I just added one line to this [which is in a diff colour]---
So here this goes --

Little Things Mean Alot

Blow me a kiss from across the room,
Say I look nice when I'm not,
Touch my hair as you pass my chair;
Little things mean a lot,
Kneel with me at the side of the bed
Call me at six on the dot
A line a day when you're far away
Little things mean a lot

Don't have to buy me diamonds &
Caviar, sables or such
I never cared much for diamonds & pearls
'Cause honestly, honey, they cost too much.

[But still I would like to have one ;), not now but sometime in life :)]
Give me your hand when I've lost my way
Give me your shoulder to cry on,
Whether the day is bright or is gray
Give me your heart to rely on!
Give me the warmth of a secret smile
To show me you haven't forgot
That always and ever, now and forever
Little things mean a lot.

This may be very senti, but its very sweet :)

Rain!!!! Heavy Rain!!!!!!!!Excellent!!!!!

Just yday i read neel's blog where he had written about the rain. And yday this happened -

We were in office till 9.45, then went to the dhaba in front of the office. I drank lassi and my friend had his dinner. Then we started from there around 10.30. The weather was excellent. It was cool, wind was excellent. I was just hoping that we could go for a loooooong ride. But ofcourse it was not possible as it was already late. As i was thinking about all this a big drop of water fell on my face. Before even i realized, it started raining. It was not drizzling. It was a heavy downpour. It was difficult even to drive. The wind was blowing so hard, it was as if the byk was being pushed. Though we had this fear that the byk might skid etc etc, i was so happy that i was getting drenched in the rain. Wow!!!!!!!!!!!! After a long time, it was raining so heavily and i was there shivering as it had become so cold. I was dripping all over. We finally thought we'll take shelter for a while. We went and stood near a bank. We were there for around 15 mins. We saw the rain, it was so fierce. Even 4 wheelers were difficut to drive at that point.
Even after this wait the rain dint reduce. But the wind was tolerable by now. So we decided to move from there. It was nearing 11. Then somehow in the heavy rain we reached home. God!!!!! the drops were as if someone was splashing water on us, like those water baloons people use during holi!!!!!!!!!!
There was no power when i went home... I was dripping so much and i was so drenched, i started feeling so cold. Somehow i managed to warm myself up. But then finally when i went to sleep, i felt so happy... I was lying on the bed and recollecting each and every moment of that 1 hour... I dont have words to express. It was just gr8.... Amazing.... Wonderful...............

My journey to Blore

As i had mentioned in one of the previous posts, I was going from Mysore to Bangalore. It was the Tanjavur Express[i dont think its the right spelling]. The Train was so full. I searched for a seat in nearly 3-4 compartments. Finally i decided that i will go and sit on the upper berth. Well it was such a hot day and the fan wasnt yet switched on. I somehow managed to comfortably sit there. After 5 min i realized i was seated in the place where a large family was going back. By large family it includes lot of kids, I think there were nearly 10 kids[4 guys and 6 girls] ranging from 4 to 12 years i guess. Well they were screaming on top of their voice. Then the guys wanted to sit on the upper berth, and 2 of them sat there, there was a third guy who wanted to come on top. But he couldnt find a place.
I was observing all these and smiling at all these, remembering my childhood days with my cousins. Finally i said, Inga vanda ukkkar[come here n sit]. They were so amazed. that guys face brightened up. He said"Ungalakka tamil varuma,akka??"[do u know tamil]. I smiled and said yes. Then they played there for half an hr or so. Then the guys went down to eat. i was reading a book all this while and was feekling very hot also, even with the fan on.
After a while i felt bored and then i thought best would be to sleep. I had anyway got the upper berth. And so i slept. I got up around 6.30 PM. We were still nearing bangalore. And i was just looking at those kids playing. One of the guys wanted to know if i was from Chennai. I told him that i am from Bangalore.
Finally when we were about to reach bangalore, i got down from the berth, one of the ladies asked me, rather we had this very small conversation.
Lady:"Neenge Chennai Karangla?"[Are u from Chennai]
Me: "Ille, Bangalore"[No, Bangalore]
Lady:"Tamil yepdi tariyoon?" [How do u know Tamil]
Me: "Naal varshon Chennaile iranden" [Was in Chennai for 4 years]
Lady: "College aa??" [meaning to say if i did my college there]
Me:"Ille,School" [No, was in school]
Then both smiled.
By then Bangalore Stn came. I finally waved to them and got down.

Then on the way home, I was just recollecting my school days in Chennai....
After an hour i reached home. Home sweet Home.

Tus... is coming back

Hey i am so happy. Just in the morning i got to know that my friend Tus... is gonna be back to India. He had been to UK on project last December. He will be back in June.
He is a close friend of mine. Infact he considers me a kid[well all my friends consider me as a kid, may coz i am a year younger to all of them]. Well there had been a lot of misunderstandings b/w me n him. After all in friendship also u have lots of ups n downs. But all this happens when u r always together. This can happen in any relation. But finally when u r far from the person, the only thing which u would wish is that the person be with u. The same happens with me. We were a nice group of friends [will write about my group sometime later]. But now all of them are scattered, a few in India, US n UK. So after a long time when one of ur close friends is coming back, u feel really happy.
Now that I am anyway writing about this, let me write a little about Tus...
We met in 2003, sometime in August. Actually we were in the same batch,july batch, but never spoke much. Then it was just a hi-bye interaction we had. We were a group of nearly 15 ppl. But by the beginning of Sep we became quite close. Thanks to msn[internal messenger in office] and to our trips to the food court in the evenings, we got to know a lot about each other. There were lot of common qualities in both of us. We made fun of each other so much. Sometimes even taking each other for granted. But then ofcourse later we became very close, sometimes to an extent that we dint have to tell each other about our reactions, coz we already knew what the other person felt. And this went on and on with some new changes in our lives, but still we tried to be the same all along. Though there have been changes, we still cherish our friendship. And i am really waiting for him and ofcourse lots n lots of choclates.

Titanic !!!!!!!!-My Titanic Diamond

As soon as we hear this word "TITANIC", we think of the ship. But yes after the movie came up, there are lot of other things... The large ship, the people, the famous "Titanic Pose", Leonardo......, Kate ....., etc etc...... But for me [and maybe for many other people] i remember the "heart shaped pendant" which Kate had worn in the movie. It was so wonderfull. Even now when the movie comes up on TV, I just keep gaping at it. I dont know what's there in that, but it really makes me go crazy. I really wish i had it with me.

Well... I have been so crazy about it that i have asked any person who is close to me to give such a thing to me as a gift. But in the beginning everybody thought that its just a joke. But i was really serious. I really wanted it. Time went on... its been so many years now and still i am crazy about it. And one fine day when i was in Forum [Bangalore], with my family, we just happened to go into Swarovski outlet. And there i saw a crystal "heart shaped" pendent. I felt so happy seeing that. The joy on my face was as if i had got some treasure. I ran towards my mom to show her this. I told her if not a true sapphire, i could atleast have the crystal. Oh!!!!! it was so beautiful. I spent nearly 2 mins just staring at that. I saw there were different colours of the same - red, blue, yellow, white...

From that day i knew when i can afford to just spend around 4K-5K without thinking twice i would buy this. Coz i knew i wanted to have that as it was my fantasy. But being practical, i couldnt just spend so much money on my fantasy. But anyway i have time. Lot of time in Life to have that. And sometimes when we go to Forum, I just have go to the Swarovski outlet and have a look at it. As if i have given them my possession to look after. Its as if i have gone there to make sure they are taking good care of it.

One day i know i will be able to afford such luxuries in life. Who knows instead of the crystal i might as well own the real sapphire. Which i have named "Titanic Diamond" or let me say "MY TITANIC DIAMOND"

Dogs!!! cute creatures or a menace

I just happened to read this post and this reminded me of my own pain with dogs. Its not that i hate dogs. I like them, though i dont own any. I love to see them play. They are so nice, and friendly when they r ur pets. But here i am talking about the stray dogs.
Oh no!!!!!!!!! I am not saying that they are a menace. Those cute little puppies of the stray dogs are so sweet. I cant think of them being a menace. The way they follow u, sometimes in a hope they might get something from u.Its all very cute.But there a few dogs!!!!!!! aggggggh!!!!!!!! such a pain. They start chasing u, barking at u, all this right in front of ur own house :( is very frustrating. All this happens once in a while - tolerable, but if this happens daily???????????????? Well this is true.
There are 3-4 dogs in front of our house in Bangalore. Stray dogs.!!!! Before, when my brother used to say they are a menace [ he is afraid of dogs ] , i used to explain to him that they are living beings and they have the right to live whereever they want and stuff like that. We always had an argument. But after a few months i also started feeling the same. The worst thing now is guests are scared to come to our place in the evenings. I am just planning to call up the corporation or what ever organization to get rid of those dogs. They have a right to live there all right but we cant live there in suspense waiting for them to come and bite us. No way.

Monday, May 16, 2005


This is just a thought continued from the previous blog. When i wrote that i just got a feeling on how this world must have come into existance.
Well i am sure all of us have read about all the scientific facts and fiction as to "How Life eveloved". This is not what i am thinking of. Some people believe that God is the creator!!!!!!! I do believe in the same. And even if we dont believe in God, when u look around, we are forced to agree that there is some super natural power which is responsile for this "Life on earth" as we know.
Sometimes when i am alone[not lonely] i observe things around [ something very difficult for me as i am a chatterbox, but ofcourse since i am alone i need to do something diff]. I see people moving around [if i am on the road] or i see animals, or sometimes small creatures like ants, lizards,cockroaches... I am not scared of them. They are also living beings. They have their own life. Their own tensions. They may not have tensions like we have [or so we think], but still, they have to tend to their day to day lives. If not anything else u keep observing ants. Just keep a very small sugar cube and u can see after sometime, the ant is trying to take the sugar cube. If possible alone or it has a companion. With so much effort they try to take it from one place to another. And if u even pick it up and keep it a bit away from them, they will promptly go near the cube and start the process all over again.
Or once in a while have a look at the spiders they follow the same trait. Even here if u see all creatures have this policy of "Try try till u succeed". We humans also have such an attitude... It is just that we lose hope easily... Well i am drifting from the topic so i just thought y not make it a sequel[ spelling might be wrong] and whenever i feel like writing about this i will continue. Till then happy trying and good luck suceeding.

So much difference, yet so much in common!!!!

I was just reading through a few blogs... Well sometimes its so interesting to find so many people of different thoughts and different backgrounds putting their thoughts in front. Sometimes the thoughts are very general - something about the society we live in, the place we live in, the love for the place we live in. Sometimes its about personal experiences - dreams, nightmares, experiences in a new place, missing the home town, missing their families.
One thing is for sure, everybody loves their family and people near to them. There may be so many physical distances, but still the love for each other, the love for family members, for friends who are far and near, love for homeland is always same or may keep on increasing. Its just amazing, how god created such creatures on earth. Though the same species we human beings have so many differences, as they say no 2 people can have same finger prints, yet we have so many similarities. After we belong to the same family. We are humans [ homo sapiens ]. So there has to be something in common after all. Hats off to the creator who has done such a wonderful job. So much difference, yet so much in common.

hmm... yet another dull day

I somehow dont feel good. I have fever, cough n cold. Thats just all. But its as if the world is rotating or i am rotating. I dunno. I feel so giddy, so tired. My hands start shaking. I dunno whts happening to me.
I went to the dorm today around 11 in the morning. I slept till 1.15 or so till my friends called me for lunch. Well though i was in full mood to sleep, i had to go. Had lunch with so much difficulty. We came back to office around 2. My PL has given me some work. Frankly speaking i have no energy to work, but then still think i can manage to work.
Hope i finish off the work ASAP.

Just not well

I am just not feeling well today. I got up at 4 in the morning. Had to come to Mysore early morning. When i got up i was feeling feverish. Then started off headache, giddiness, etc etc etc.

I came to office and was extremely tired. Tried my level best to be on my seat. But then, just couldn't manage to do so. Finally, i gave up and went to the dorm. I slept there for 1 hr and then got a call from my friends for lunch. I just dint feel like having lunch :(. Nothing tasted good. With so much difficulty i had 2 chappatis. Then had a mango shake.

I came back to work, i thought i'll wait for half an hr and go back. I got a call from my PL that there was some urgent work to be completed. So whole afternoon went like that. :)

Well this work is gonna continue even tomorow. So i will be a bit busy. If i was normal i would have somehow finished most of tomorow's work today. But i am just not able to to a thing. So will be going home either by 7 or max 8.

By the way had lot of choclates 2day. :)

Things seem to be going good :)

I think things are going in a good way. Last week i had some terrible time at work. But then after saturday, things seem to be going good.

On Saturday 30 April, 2005.

It was a sunny day- i got up around 9 or 9.30. I dint go to blore this weekend. I had promised my friend i will spend time with her. By the time we reached office, it was 12.30. We were 3 of us. And all of us were damn hungry. We went to Dynasty [restaurant near mysore Palace] and had lunch. It was my treat as i was getting released from the project. Then we went to a nearby theatre around 2.30, we noticed that movie had started at 1.30 itself and the next show was at 4.30. So we till 4 we did some shopping. We then came back to the theatre, got tickets for the movie - "LUCKY". But i must say we were very unlucky to have gone to this movie. It was soooooooooooooo boring. We nearly got a headache. After this we went back home. It was just 7 so i thought i'll go to my friend's place. So went there had nice fun and by the timei reached home it was nearly 10. I had a tiring day, but really enjoyed with my friends. :) I slept around 11 after having dinner.

On Sunday 1 May, 2005.

Again a very sunny day, i got up a bit early around 8 or 8.30. Then reached office to meet my friend who was staying in the guest house. Me and L.... were watching a Tamil movie.[Some satyaraj movie, supposed to be a murder mystery :) ]. Then we started watching Titanic [ in TAMIL], we were making comments on each scene of both the movies. Swapping channels and commenting, we realized that it was 12.30. We were hungry, so we went to FC2 near the infy hostels...
It was good. Both of us spoke a lot. Then we went roaming infy campus. It had changed a lot, and we wanted pics of the campus. I made her walk in the hot sun [it s so hot in mysore these days - very terrible]. It was nearing 2.15 that we were back in her room. I had to leave as early as poosible as i had a train to catch at 3.45 pm. I had to go to blore. I left her room by 2.40. Then i had to walk a loooong way. By 3 i reached the gate. A bus just went in front of me. I went to the aut guy standing in front and argured for the fare for 5 mins. Finally he agreed, infy to my place and there to railway stn 80 bucks. I dint want to give so much, but i had no option. Finally reached the railway stn at 3.30. God!!! the queue was so long. I thought i am going to miss the train but luckily i got the train on time. And in the train there were so many people. There was no place even to stand. I somehow found the upper berth and had a nice sleep. The journey was -- sleepy :). I reached home by 8 and then had dinner, then TV. I wasnt able to sleep that night. Was very exited.... My friend was coming back on Monday. I was so happy. I might have slept around 2 or 3 in the morning.....

Well that was a gr8 weekend i had :)
