Passion generates focus to achieve.

Deepti..you are passionate about being punctual and I can never be on time. I have to be at least 2 minutes late if not more. :)

You in love with A R Rahman? ;)
Any concerts you have been to?
I went to his concert in Detroit and it was out of this world!

mathew July 22, 2008 at 12:57 PM  

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 day..it was a overdose kill for me..;-D

Being 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

"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.

Shantanu July 22, 2008 at 5:51 PM  

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 :)

Deepti July 23, 2008 at 10:46 AM  

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

Deepti July 23, 2008 at 10:46 AM  

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

Deepti July 23, 2008 at 10:49 AM  

@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 :)

Deepti July 23, 2008 at 10:57 AM  

@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!! :)

Deepti July 23, 2008 at 11:00 AM  

@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 ;)

Deepti July 23, 2008 at 11:04 AM  

@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 ;)"

"To keep my humor intact ..no matter how hard it is at times "--Guess, I had a dose of this from you ;)
