Chai Pilgrimage

Hey kirti, i'm sure you'll like this site. chai pilgrimage. you can see how people explore interest in the smallest thing, and find joy. if you click at their other blog, you'll also see how people from other country have adapted or adopted to the Hindu traditional belief of tradition, religion and culture. Its fascinating how simply people do things, while we think it to be an extra ordinary effort. this i felt after reading their other blog about the birth of the blog writers daughter. i would like you to read that too. for you the link here Tulasi. for those you want to laugh at it, i've only this to say.
Passion is not just what you have, they come in various, surpising packages, big and small. And at places you least expect. And is showed in surprisingly innovative ways.

The blog is written by Jenny Kostechi- shaw, a mexican i guess.

Good 50x70 poster competition.

something about dolphins

Today we were just telling some general knowledge things about Jainism to another friend of mine who is a Jain but knows nothing. Infact she talks as if she is not and has expressions like,"ohh!!!aisa hota hai. I'll tell my mom she'll be happy, Ladki sudhar rahi hai."
At that point another friend of ours interrupted and said how hypocritical it is to actually have a religion of Jain. Well agreeing to it is a question. But yeah it went to how much evolved we our, and attaining Moksha.
At that point he mentioned, that may be dolphins are a better evolved species than us, and have chances of attaining moksha.
His point was they just swim, eat when needed, compose music(so intelligent being) and have intercourse not just to reproduce, like humans (this is what compares them to humans, other species indulge in intercourse solely for reproduction), otherwise they do nothing to hurt anybody.
On that Ankita said,"I wish i was a Dolphin."

Boooooooooom inspired

I'm on Page 3

pink flyod rock show, performed by Local Band Antariksh, on the SCET grounds, amazing. And to add it up i was on Page 3. Claiming my official entry to the celeb space. It was great listening to the songs again and seeing the performance on the stage once taken by Vinay, Niti, me, sandy, pressy, krunzie and my of other friends, some having crushes and some fans.
Well the stage had a nice backdrop. and had glimpses of Pulse video and the crowd for once was good. not expecting that in Surat, but nice surprise.
Next waiting to the gettogether.
