Broken Memories

A glimpse through the days gone by,
Trying hard to remember the feelings imbibed.
Of broken memories and blurred visions,
Unshaped and unformed,
An attempt to recollect.

Giving up I give away.

Chairs are like Facebook?

Facebook hits 1 billion users.

And so they decide to come up with an ad. Facebook's very first ad. 

Mark Zuckerburg, probably wanted to tell us that Facebook is a crucial, integral, inseparable part of our existence. So he went on to compare Facebook to chairs. C-H-A-I-R-S???

And not just chairs, Facebook is also like doorbells, airplanes, bridges, dance floors, basketball and finally the universe. 

We sit on chairs, ring doorbells, fly on airplanes, cross over bridges, dance on dance floors, play basketball. 

But how is it connected to Facebook?

Well, what is Facebook? A social networking platform, with 1 billion users around the globe. 

But this commercial has failed to pass the message, and can only be termed as bizarreFacebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg wrote of the commercial that "for the first time in our history, we've made a brand video to express what our place is on this earth.We believe that the need to open up and connect is what makes us human. It's what brings us together. It's what brings meaning to our lives". What???

Is it just me or do you feel the same?
Here's the ad if you happened to miss it. :)

10 Things About God's Own Country

Here's a list of 10 things I noticed on my recent visit to Kerala:

1. One can never predict a hartal. Any day, any time and your travel plans can go berserk.

2. Everybody's building a house, a huge one, only to either keep it locked, or for their old parents to stay. Two oldies, in a big mansion. Spooky.

3. Every second person wants to make it to the "gelf". As always!

4. Getting married in Kerala is a very bad idea.

5. Every third person I met kept asking me if I was a nurse. Come on, are you kidding me?

6. No matter how expensive gold can get, all the jewelry showrooms are filled with customers. Bling!

7. Around every corner of the road is a multi-storeyed shopping centre. Wow.

8. Travelling in a transport bus can be a very taxing affair, I'd prefer the crowded Mumbai locals.

9. Match making is a favorite pass time. And it can get really hilarious at times.

10. People there have a heart of gold and they love entertaining and feeding their guests. You're bound to put on a few kilos.

No matter what, Kerala is beautiful, and all my relatives there are wonderful people.

 And I'm already missing all my little nieces and nephews.

Kerala, when will I see you next?

Back Again!

Is it a writer's block or have I been too busy? I just don't know. It feels as though there are too many things stuffed into my head, waiting to explode.

Good Lord, I've so missed blogging. 

Some travelling, cousins getting married, new assignments in hand and the blogger in me went missing for a while. But no worries, I'm back and will continue to do what I love doing the most. BLOGGING!!

Can't wait to hit the blogosphere again. :)
