The day I was Born..!!

Well.. since the time I read Tanvi birthday post, I was planning to post something like her.. But I don't think it will finish in 29 points.! Actually it was on 4th March but I was too engrossed with my best friend, Kaustubh who had came all the travelling 300km to Pune to celebrate my big day.. It was a big content when you are with your best people around you. 

So, coming to point. Here's who I am. 

- I truly believe that I am a surviver, since the day I was born. 
- When I was 15 days old I survived a  major leg surgery. As per the index the survival chance of babies undergoing this surgery was 0.5% 27 years ago. And I was in that 0.5%.

- So, now I use footwear 10No. for left leg and 11 No. for the right one. Unique ahhh..!! It used to be my complex, but later I turned it into my uniqueness when I started treking at the age of 20.

 - Doctor had adviced to avoid that but "never say die" is me. Now I'm rock climbling trainer from JN institue of moutaineering. Kool ahh.. conquer your fears n all the theory.

- Till now I have travelled across all the jungles in India.

- I was using my bicycle till the age of 25., I feel surprised now.

- Steve Waugh used to be my biggest inspiration in my teens and I statred believing in the Law of Attraction, The Secret when I met him and worked with him for a week. I went crazy for two months, after effects. refer my one of previous posts on Steve. He do regularly reply my mails. *Satisfaction..*

- I didn't recognise Jimmy Carter, Ex-President of the USA when he was beside me on Jimmy Carter Work Project in June 2007 at Lonavala. Later laughed and striked a conversation.

- I did almost all kinds of jobs, from sweeping in chai tapri to heading an HR dept. of an MNC. Sweeping, not because I of economic problem. But I wanted to experience the problems those boys face, *early age crazy thoughts..*

- I worked for a week as a load carrier for Rs30/- a day in Bara Bazar Kolkata in one grain godown for the one I love and suffered bloody scars for 6 months. *Power of love haha..*

- I believe in "work harder.."

- I rarely lose my friends; I have retained almost most of my friends. Kedar is my oldest friend and we are together since the age 4.

- I can get along with almost any person on the earth. I rarely hate anyone, but when I hate its too genuine.

- I love India too much and once Im finished with India exploring I am all set to explore the world.

- Dip / Bebo / Swati / Splurja are my best buddies and I want to invite them on my wedding. *Hope never dies.*

- I found Tbg is like me..*crazy*

- My mom is too cute and Love her like anything.

- My younger bro doesn't booze without me and he looks my elder. He's 6.5. *winks*

- Movies, Im a total movie freak. Dip n mine movie likes are almost similar.

- Believes in doing crazy stuff.

- Dance.. Loves to dance like crazy. Once I danced for 8 hrs..and got 5 flame shot, complementary. *stamina huuhh..*

- Girls, all are friends. Never thought bad.! Scared of marriage. *blues..*

Finally... The party pic.. with bro.

It was crazy.. Two nights had full fun. Ya, Missed my best friend Avi.. She flied to Singapore.

Till now the life is so much contended. No regrets.
