Latest News - Getting married…

Well…I am not quite good in breaking news so let me tell the news without much hoopla - I am getting married to Aakriti on 6th December

Details of marriage could be gathered here 
Aakriti and I met during our post graduation and we complemented each other quite well…me being brash and cantankerous and she literally and figuratively acted as "better half" by being calmer and more patient…so we mutually agreed that she needs to be the "better half" for my life as well…
Lot has been said about love and love marriage and I want to refrain from all that…in simple words…Aakriti knows how to fill colors to my thoughts and hence enable me "to dream" – if today I am a "successful dreamer" then she is quite well the raison d'etre of all my dreams… 

Aakriti – looking forward to have a great life with you…

Remembering Tej...

You don't normally think of writing this for a friend who was just 31 years old.
Friend who you have just met.
I dont want any of you, reading this, to experience this ever again.

Tejendra Gwala, or Tej, as we lovingly called him, a 6ft 2 inches man was still a boy at heart. Full of dreams, full of youth and full of  dare to be different from everyone out there.

Few things -

1. He knew how to make you comfortable - I spent innumerable evenings with him - where he would just go and start speaking with strangers - whether t was a gym, dhaba or a 5 star restaurant

2. He knew his values - I was just 1 year younger than I was but he respected me and Aakriti (my wife) as his real brother and Bhabhi. There were dozens of time, when he would just call and say - I want "Ghar ka khana" and lets go for a drive.

3. He was the best closer that you would want in your team - knew how to finish things. Whether it was AV shoot in Chennai, fixing dozens of cabs, writing a strategic prese…
