57 years

Happy Republic Day my fellow Indians... :-) ...57 years!!! I miss the cold winter mornings in Delhi when dad n mom would take me and bhai over to see the parade. We used to get treated to Dairy Milk chocolates for waking up early (those were simply the best!) :D The chairs at the parade would be wet due to the mist and fog....hahaha! India Gate and Rashtrapathi Bhavan stood proudly over the crowds....impressing upon them the sacrifices of their fellow countrymen...and the success of having created a democratic republic. My dad's chest would puff out with pride when he would see the army bettallions march by. He always loved the Rajputana Rifles. ...armymen with heavy mustaches...strictly disciplined....marching in sync. You cant help but feel over awed!!!

On another note....You know what the best thing about having an elder brother is??....besides the fact than mine's one my best friends? He buys you what you cant afford for yourself (among other things!!)... :-) :-) :-) You rock Andy... :x

Book that i'm reading right now: "A River Sutra" by Dipa Mehta

Songs of the day: "Rang de Basanti" from the OST, "Have a drink on me" by AC|DC, the album 'Mutations' by Beck

Happy Day of the Republic!

I found out yesterday that my photography teacher is going to India for about a month next summer... I'm so jealous!!

No wonder he's scalping U2 tickets, though... ¬¬
