Solving the Kashmir issue...


An ingenious example of speech and politics occurred recently in the United Nations Assembly that made the world community smile...

A representative from India began: ' Before beginning my talk I want to tell you something about Rishi Kashyap of Kashmir, after whom Kashmir is named.


When he struck a rock and it brought forth water, he thought, ' What a good opportunity to have a bath. ' He removed his clothes, put them aside on the rock and entered the water. When he got out and wanted to dress, his clothes had vanished. A Pakistani had stolen them. '  

The Pakistani representative jumped up furiously and shouted, ' What are you talking about? The Pakistanis weren't there then. '

The Indian representative smiled and said, ' And now that we have made that clear, I will begin my speech. ' And they say Kashmir belongs to them..


PS: I am not sure if this true or not


PPS: I wish if this actually is true :)

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…
