How much is your name worth?

I just found this site recently. Seems like im the first one with this name to try it out. :-)

Trying out my other more common name

This is fun haha

I am done!

A friend of mine forwarded an article which was sent for publication in a local daily. Glancing through the paragraphs I found that the article is mainly about how the writer feels about the leaders we have and how bad they are at what they do. He was good.

He was a very good complainer. I guess its an ‘IN’ thing to be good at criticizing, whining and yammering for the modern MIZO writer.

Well here I am making a brawl over how other people yelp about their statesmen. Well it’s for a good reason, I must say (at least I need to justify myself for saying what I said), the simple reason being that “I am done!”

I used to cavil & complain a lot about how our leaders are running our government, especially in MIZORAM. But now it dawned on me that complaining would only make me angrier about the fact I am not happy with. I’d rather put myself in their shoes and think of what I can do better. I’d rather try my best to get into their ‘Toilet’ seats just to prove myself that I am better.

Should I really do that now? Let me think.

Why do I need to prove myself that I am better? …. Ummm…. Lets see...

I am better than them anyhow. So I am done with all the complaining stuffs.hehe


I hope You Dance

I always thought that this was a poem, and its been inspiring me for quite a number of years now. Just recently i found out that there is a song on it as well. Just wanted to share it wit y'all!!!

I hope you never lose your sense of wonder
You get your fill to eat
But always keep that hunger
May you never take one single breath for granted
God forbid love ever leave you empty handed
I hope you still feel small
When you stand by the ocean
Whenever one door closes, I hope one more opens
Promise me you'll give faith a fighting chance

And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance
I hope you dance
I hope you dance

I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance
Never settle for the path of least resistance
Living might mean taking chances
But they're worth taking
Lovin' might be a mistake
But it's worth making
Don't let some hell bent heart
Leave you bitter
When you come close to selling out
Give the heavens above
More than just a passing glance

And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance
I hope you dance (Time is a real and constant motion always)
I hope you dance (Rolling us along)
I hope you dance (Tell me who)
I hope you dance (Wants to look back on their youth and wonder)
(Where those years have gone)

I hope you still feel small
When you stand by the ocean
Whenever one door closes, I hope one more opens
Promise me you'll give faith a fighting chance

And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance
I hope you dance

What do you want to be?

What do you want to BE when you grow up?

Is it power that you want? Being a powerful statesman, a cunning politician, a high ranking official can give one enough power to show the world that you are one among many!

Is it fame that you long for? Being a movie star or a singer. A glamorous lifestyle everyone long for, you can have it all.

Is it money, that you desire? Get into a business and start earning, no one would stop you from doing so. You can even sleep along with your cash and cards if you so desire. The world will be yours for the buying.

OR, is it happiness we all long for? Is it not that we all search for in all these...these things of desires? I have once read of a story about a woodcutter who cut wood half the day and sleeps the rest of the day. So one day a teacher was walking by the woods when he saw the wood cutter lying peacefully asleep on a hill top.

The teacher, feeling very righteous about his life, woke him up and asked him a question.

" What are you doing my friend?"

"I am enjoying my life! Why?

"Don't you know that if you work for the whole day rather than half of the time, you can earn more money?"

"What would i do with more money?"

"Well, we can start by getting yourself better axes and saws"

"What would i need those for?"

"Well.... you can cut more trees in less time and earn more money"

"What would i do with more money?"

"Lots of things!! You can start by hiring lots of people to cut trees"

"What would cutting more trees do to me?"

"Well my friend, you can earn more money with it and enjoy your life!"

"Well sir, thank you so much for the chat, but i already told you that i was enjoying my life... until you came" .... and the wood cutter went back to his peaceful nap....

What is happiness? You decide...

Do you settle for 2nd Best? A look into the new R15

I have always fancied on getting the amazing 1000 cc Yamaha R1. The masculinity & fitness of the bike always enthralled me. Even though there are more powerful superbikes in the world, im kinda stuck on this one, so have always told myself that i will get myself one of them one day.

Yamaha, in 2008 is launching a new product in India that is going to shake up the entire 2 wheeling experience (atleast mine) by launching its new YZF R15. The new R15 is going to take on the same design held on the R1. The only difference is that the new R15 is going to have a heart of only 150 cc while big brother R1 has a 1000 cc.

Yamaha will christen this bike as YZF R15 and will score first -in-class/ first-in-indian bikes credits such as full fairing, front and rear disc, monoshock suspension system at the rear and twin lights. But the real attraction of the Yamaha’s 150cc R15 will be its four stroke, oil cooled,4-valve, liquid cooled and Fuel injected (FI) engine. The R15’s 150cc engine would develop maximum power in the range of 20-22bhp (if true, will make it more powerful than Karizma and Pulsar 220cc DTS-FI). Above all, Yamaha’s 150cc R15 will zoom past 60km/hr in just 3 second and 100km/hr in 9 seconds. Top speed of R15 will be around 145km/hr and it will consume a litre of petrol to go for 35-40km.

Now, the most important question. Do you settle for second best?

(I dont think it will come out as good when Indian designers touch it up)

Two lines that made my day!

I'm a sucker for inspirational quotes. I get fairly off the beat sometimes for reading them too much. Let me just bore you with a two i found recently...and love so much!

If you're going through hell, keep going.
~Winston Churchill

I know God will not give me anything I can't handle. I just wish that He didn't trust me so much. ~Mother Teresa

Walk Away!!!

Why does this happen to me every time? They say that you need to be careful driving, cause even if its somebody else's fault, you could still get hurt. Well i'd say you need to be careful when you drink, or who you drink with. Cause even if you could control your alcohol someone else might not be able to.

I've written an article about how to control drinking tendencies or rather too much of it.
If you choose to drink
Its hard for a guy to walk away from a fight where your friends are the victim. Its hard. Here i am discussing how Mizoram & us the people can be more respected, can be more successful and everything else. But when it comes to your friend being beaten up by another Mizo guy in the middle of a local Hyderabadi residency area because they were both drunk... that is a situation i hate facing. Every time i have decided to take my friends along and walk away so that no greater harm is done to the name and face of a Mizo guy than what is already done. As a GUY, sometimes the urge to fight back no matter what, becomes bigger than ever. But LORD, i pray that i could walk away again.

Wedding bells are ringing in the chapel !!

Recently i was in a hospital bed for a day because of being too handsome (kidding- dont take my words on that) :-D

I was bored to death lying there, so started calling every number i have.

After speaking to a few people i came to know about my ex-girlfriend getting married.

Man! It wasn't the sweetest news i heard all week. Its not like i have or still love her, but something do strike you when things such as this come your way.

Let me let you in on a few details. I have chosen a life where i need to be away from Mizoram (home place) most of the time. And i hate having a long distance relationship. Its not so hard to break up with someone if you really try.

She was sweet, innocent, simple and submissive. The girl next door who everyone wants to marry. And yes, she was just next door literally. I can go there anytime of the day and watch her go about her chores in the house. And she was good with everything and which, is definitely a good thing.

Life was good, until this dumb-a$$ decided to look for greener pastures.

Now i'm standing here, thinking how stupid could one get. Its true 'you never know what you got till its gone.' So kids - Cherish what you have, cherish the love and cherish LIFE. 'Cause you cannot be sure what tomorrow might bring.
