Irresistable 8

8 , this number has been plaguing my thoughts ever since the editor of the Bower Times has me to do my doctoral research on the importance of the same…. Here are a few first hand observations on the same ….

  7. mathew says:

    Surya Kireedam – Devasuram is a favourite of mine too..but my bro is a diehard fan of that song and used to keep playing that several times in a single was a overdose kill for me..;-DBeing punctual is very important for me…even for a leisure trip I hate when people make it late..thats one thing that irritates me a lot..‘Lexus Land Cruiser ‘ whaaah..In case you manage..a ride please..;-P

  8. Neena Padayatty says:

    “Drive my own SUV … a Lexus Land Cruiser atleast Backpack to remote destinations and host a travel show”…quite adventurous,aren’t u?The Carpenters,John Denver,and Roja in my favorite list too.Good going with the “research”;-D..Thanks for taking it up.

  9. Shantanu says:

    Jhumpa’s new book is out now. Calling God bilingually should absolve you of most sins. The Goal has an interesting sequel that should be useful if you wanna become a ringmaster one day! Really, no four lettered words, not counting ciao 🙂

  10. Deepti says:

    @Mayz: hifi for the tatoo and SUV. I like the male version of the song too .. Some unknown singer Anup ghoshal but its awesome 🙂

  11. Deepti says:

    @Karthik: Hopefully it materializes in Delhi. Else anyother place would do too 🙂

  12. Deepti says:

    @Sachin: wow , so we share the same taste in books. Do read Khaled Hosseni’s second book, it is really worth it 🙂@Keshi: Thanks a lot!! I do stand by them as far as I can 🙂

  13. Deepti says:

    @Hobo: Yes it does!! Thanks 🙂@Sol: But there is no one arounfd to see me when I come on time .. I am always kept waiting 🙂 So you saw Rehman Live in concert? Wowwwwww … You saw Rehamn live and I saw Aamir Kahn for the IPL finals .. Talk about crossed stars!! 🙂

  14. Deepti says:

    @Mathew: Land cruiser ride .. anytime 🙂 About being puncctual .. no one around to see you when you are on time .. Have to keep waiting and yeah it is very irritating 🙂@Neena: I am being over adventorous … hope I can acheive atleast few of them madam editor 😉

  15. Deepti says:

    @Shantanu: I just chanced upon her books and liked her style. Looking forward to read “Unaccustomed Earth” too. About being ring master , I have no clue but I like Goldratt’s style.Four lettered word i just put it like this “What the hell… which in cases of extreme emotion metamorphosises to you know what ;)”

  16. Nikhil Narayanan says:

    “To keep my humor intact matter how hard it is at times “–Guess, I had a dose of this from you 😉Interpreter of Maladies -some stories cheriya kathi alle?
