TVS had launched all fancy color at that time and I select ma favorite Purple… 29 April 2005, my cousin delivered the bike at my sister’s workplace with the fuel tank full ;). When I was doing a pooja for my bike, I got a news that I am blessed with another cousin brother.
A friend suggested the name Michelle and from then I call her Michelle.
Since then my bike is giving me company with all my times. She is my best buddy. We always have a good time together. I love to drive my scooty. I haven’t given her much trouble, and drove it mostly in the city areas. She shared all my joys, I could drive it fast when I am very excited and she makes sure I don’t lose control. There are times when I am very sad and want to cry, she is there to wipe my tears. When I cry while driving, she makes me concentrate on driving and forget my sorrow for some time.
It’s very rare that I give my scooty to anyone to ride. I am very possessive about her and don’t want anyone to play around with it. Me and my elder sis always fight over this issue (I never give her my Michelle and she keeps complaining to Mom but I never listen ;)). I don’t even give to Dad if I am not at the backseat. There are very few lucky people who must have got a chance to ride my sweetheart.
The only minor accident I remember I had was when on a crossroad another bike has hit us and left brake was broken and some minor crack here and there, and me without a scratch.
Once, which I rarely do, I lost the keys to unlock Michelle and my dear had misplaced the other key L. I had to call the key maker to make a duplicate key and had ended in changing the lock itself.
6 Years and only more than 22,000 of running and a great average of more than 40 kmpl (Touchwood)
Love you my dear Michelle. Hope we have a long journey together.

The cover page of the book is very attractive and colorful ‘Don’t lose your mind LOSE YOUR WEIGHT’. (I love the apple on it)
The hottest topic of discussion for every girl was Kareena’s size zero figure. And trust me somewhere every girl wants a perfect figure and not actually size zero.
The author Rujuta Diwekar just comes with that point. She has laid 4 simple principles to stay health and fit (and that’s what we need). She simply starts with explaining that Diet is not starvation. Diet is not punishing your body. Everything we eat is right and the only thing is that we need to eat at the right time.
Simple thing, we should love our body and specially our stomach. We should know its threshold limits. Sitting posture while eating, chewing slowly, eating with all senses, these are basic things which we never care to even give a consideration. We just need to think about nutrients in the food and not about the calories.
She gives us all the details about carbohydrates, proteins, fats, vitamins, minerals and most importantly WATER. A brief on what to eat and how to eat it.
The four principles would really change your life and improve your eating habits. Eating first thing in the morning, eating every 2 hours, eating more when you are more active and less when less active and eating your dinner early.
She does clarifies are myths and give good recommendations with some real life examples (and somewhere we do relate to it). She recommends eating local food like ‘Eat local and think global’. After all Punjabi’s are meant to eat paranthas and south Indians are suppose to eat the idlis and dosas.
And yes, her main focus is EXERCISE. Exercise is non-negotiable. Unless we exercise, no eating habit is gonna help us.
This book is not only for the ones who want to lose their weights but for all of us who want to stay fit.
So, guys and girls, I suggest read this book at least once and you really start appreciating your body.
Ok, to be honest, I have started following these principles from last one week, I will not say there is a change, but I really feel good about it. There is no guilt feeling for anything I eat, I just make sure I am eating it at the right time. If the time is not right, I prefer skipping it J.

By the month could end, I came to know that I would be travelling to New York, US in April. Wow, what an excitement it was. Shopping, packing and hell lot of work in office. :)
And one sad part was my team lead and my lifetime buddy now
I did try my hands on cooking and lots of successful (for me) experiments (I pity all those who had to actually eat it...but it was not that bad..ok!!!) :P
The memories are still so fresh in my mind.
October-November: Time back home. Its always good to be home and in my lovely city Pune.
It was just a running around time. My best friend was getting married. With all the ups and downs during these two months, she finally got married and happily living her married life (she said so at least :)).
And the year came to end with another wedding and this time it was my dearest Daddu who got married to the love of his life. Beautiful wedding and we all had lot of fun pulling his leg.
So, another fantastic year comes to an end.
Waiting eagerly for the next year to unfold all the surprises it has for me.
Wish you all a very Happy and Prosperous New Year. May all our dreams carried forward from this year and new ones get fulfilled in 2011. :)
