The weekend

Had some friends over from Virginia. An englisman married to a peruvian / japanese girl. Craig and I have been mates for over 8 yrs now, we met at the job i currently work at (hes since moved on). Had a lovely time with my wife enjoying the company as well, did the whole philadelphia sightseeing, lots of english premier league football... of course bustin on how bad Blackpool was in the Champions league and that they would continue to be relegated...ah, that can piss an englishman off... pics below:

Bharat Rakshak

Was reading up on the Indian army and came across this website I had long ago visited. Very up to date and some great stories of valor and patriotism through the wars of past.

What struck me about this was the one image (which I have copied here, but is owned by the webmaster). The direct link to that image can be found HERE

The slogan of this image applies to every soldier fighting for every free country in the world, including our very own US forces in Iraq.

Lest You Forget Me

For Your Tomorrow, We Gave Our Today.

of Coming out and all that

an old friend whom i had caught up last week with, finally let the cat out of the bag that he's gay. i could feel him wait for a reaction from me, especially since i had zero gaydar on him and always ribbed him about being too picky in finding a nice girl (so much for my helping!!).

we chatted for a bit as he told me how hard it was initially especially being indian, and all the social taboo that comes with only answer was, "man, all i can say is, you have to go with what warms your heart, there is no right and wrong, and society in general has been known to be wrong very many times".

My personal thoughts, congratulations on finding the one you love. do not worry about the people who pass judgement and tell you whats righteous or not. Lifes to short to get caught up with other peoples nonsense when you can find love and peace in your own home.

Nike Cricket Commercial

Suddenly remembered the Nike cricket commercial sung in Konkani when i was in india back in 2005. Found the clip on YouTube, I love this ad, it embodies how important cricket is to india
