Last month as I was passing in front of the Birla Mandir, the numerous vendor that usually stand there caught my eye. And guess what? There were at least 20 to 30 pav bhaji vendors standing one after the other, as they always did. And what were their names? Each and every one of them is called पंडित पाव भाजी!! With slight variations in their names, like New pandit pav bhaji, Old pandit pav bhaji, Famous pandit pav bhaji, Sabse purana pandit pav bhaji... etc. each of the vendors had taken up the famous brand name पंडित पाव भाजी.
Seeing such mass usage of a popular name in pav bhaji vendors, I felt that even the uneducated pav bhaji vendors seem to understand the importance of a popular brand name in their own way. I found this an interesting case study of branding at a very local level.

When I introspect, I realize that I have been blessed with some of the most loving friends. I may rave and rant to them about the most idiotic of topics but they would stand by me always. Solid rocks! No matter how many birthdays I might forget, no matter how long I loose touch, they r always there for me, my F.R.I.E.N.D.S.

As the sunlight begins to fade from somewhere near another water body of Udaipur, Lake Pichola, from a banyan tree in a park at the lake’s edge, come out the flying foxes (megabats), flapping their huge wings in the darkening sky. The flying foxes, more commonly known as fruit bats, come out to feed at dusk. Flying in the orange sky they look like phantoms, ready to swoop down on unsuspecting victims.

Sometimes in life we create such unforgettable memories, that each time we relive them its like reliving the most wonderful parts of our life. But even more precious are the people we create these memories with. Because it is only with very few special people that we are able to create those wondrous moments of sheer joy, when our heart beats with happiness.

Dedicated to my Hubby.
With each passing day, I count the days I spend without your presence. I count the nights I spend alone, without the warmth of your hug.
With each passing day I count the days left of our separation. And the days of my loneliness.
And yet, with each passing day I count and celebrate each day less of our separation.
I count the times you have loved me, cared for me. I count your hugs and the touch of your lips on mine.
I count the times you have admonished me for my shortcomings. I count your reprimands.
I count the nights when we converse till the wee hours of the morning. I count those sleepless nights.
I count the times you said you loved me, you missed me. I count my tears and smiles for you.
I count each beat my heart skips every time you held me. I count each skipped beat when I looked into your eyes.
I count each dream I wished would come true, with you holding my hand, and never letting go.
I count each time you have made me aspire to be a better person. I count each time you have admired.
I count each song my heart sings for you. I count each song you have sung for me.

I miss you when something really good happens, because you are the one I want to share it with.
I miss you when something is troubling me, because you are the one who understands me so well.
I miss you when I laugh and cry because i know that you are the one that makes my laughter grow and my tears disappear.
I miss you all the time, but I miss you most when i lay awake at night and think of all the wonderful times we spent with each other; for those were some of the best times of my life .....

Filled with the perfect love you have given me, a bond so strong, a hold so tight,
To know you are the one, my Mr. Right...
A blessing sent from above, In you I've found my one true love...
Our lives entwined to be one upon this journey we've just begun...
Where you and I will find no less than eternal love and happiness...
When I close my eyes, my heart whispers your name...
Softly, like an Autumn leaf falling to the ground...
With the golden hues of the setting sun, I look to the horizon...
Knowing that somewhere beyond it, far away...
You are there, casting a spell on me, with the music thats your voice,
The pools of love, thats your eyes...
The strength and support, thats your arms...
Wrapping me in a warmth that makes me melt,
Every time i remember your embrace...
