Being Balbir Singh.....


"Bhaiyya mai...."
-(oh no not again!!...y God y do u do this to me....)
"Jee theek hai"
-(1 2 3 jerk....wow it didnt turn off today)

"bhaiyya station change karna...yeh wala nahi...102"
-(there she goes ...changing the station again..she cant control the wheel and she wants to multitask!)

"haan...hi yaar...kaisi hai"
-(damn these cell fones..the light has turned green..the cars behind are honking..hang up will u!)
"woh gaadi peechey horn maar rahi hai"
"haan haan bhaiyya ek minute...chal vidhi rakti hoon...bye"

-(ridge road..thank heavens its a straight road, no bends or turns.. smooooth)
"THUD"
-(wat the....)
"gaddha dekhke"

"bhaiyya parking mein dal dena"
-(Another day another ride is over and am ALIVE!!!!)

Thoughts of our driver and trusted friend, Balbir Singh ji when i am driving. He has a family to feed and no insurance policy for cover, but fought all odds to 'try' teaching me to drive. Its been 5 yrs since i got d licence, but i cant control the wheel or park or take reverse, but i can drive straight...straight into a ditch! And he still has hope.....

unrelated but check this out->
• Don't be a lawyer.

Suicide is among the leading causes of premature death among lawyers. You can tell yourself you'll be different, but statistically speaking, you probably won't be. And while most lawyers don't kill themselves, this doesn't bode well for law being your dream career.

about salsa, well i didnt have a partner myself as most of my friends were out of state working. met this girl at the dance class itself and we hit it off there. :) it is a lovely dance to learn and heck of a way to make new friends :)

ball of a time on friday. classes get over this wednesday. so it's more or less practices of all that we've learnt so far. the thrill that u get when u manage to dance to an entire song... and with all spins and glitzy moves ;) man it's EXHILARATING!

Hi! Well I finished off with a month of salsa and we just started off with Tango a couple of days ago. Unfortunately for me my dance partner aint around this time as she's got exams coming up so looks like I gotta make-do with another gal :)
