Drenched in Love – Painting

Its Yash & Ruchi’s wedding today, and I thought of presenting a painting to the special couple. I checked on the net, and found a nice painting of a couple walking together in rains. Here’s how I painted it myself (see my painting below). Not that perfect, but I was satisfied with the final result. Hope Yash & Ruchi like it as well!!

Yeh Tumhari Meri Baathein, Hamesha Yuhin Chalti Rahe
Yeh Hamari Mulakate, Hamesha Yuhin Chalti Rahe
Beete Yuhin Apne Saare Din Raat
Baaton Se Nikalti Rahe Nayi Baat
Phir Wahin Baathein Leke…Geet Koi Hum Likhe
Jo Dil Ko.. ..Haan Sab Ke Dil Ko Chu Le
Baathein Suron Mein Yuhin Pighalti Rahen
Baathein Geeton Mein Yuhin Dalti Rahen

The “Delete” Folder

My Delete folder seemed very happy today. I couldn’t fathom the reason of his happiness. “I am completely full today, why don’t you see what all I have got?”, said the folder.  I decided to take a peep, to see what all the Delete folder possessed.

Hey! you got some memories of so-called friends.
Aha! you got their phone numbers, email ids, and what not.
Whoa! you got some precious time you spent helping them selflessly.
Zoinks! you got some care and concern that you always had for them.

“What do you want me to do now?”, I queried. “Just press the enter button”, commanded the folder. I did as I was asked to.

Poof! The Delete folder was emptied in a jiffy.

“Whee! I am really happy today”, exclaimed the Delete folder. So am I, I replied !!!

Dont chase people

Milind becomes Shahrukh Khan

dhoop se nikal ke, chhanv se phisal ke
hum mile jahaan par, lamha tham gaya

duniya bhula ke tumse mila hoon
nikli hai dil se ye duaa, rang de tu mohe gerua
raanjhe ki dil se hai duaa, rang de tu mohe gerua

shah-rukh-khan-kajol-dilwale-gerua

How I wish, I could strike this SRK pose, and sing the gerua song with my Kajol. Alas, that’s not possible, certainly not now at this moment. But wait, I can strike another SRK pose with ease, and that too without Kajol….

msrk

I had a Rotator cuff tear yesterday in the gym, I slipped on the dips bar while doing a L-Sit. (pic of a L-sit below). I been doing it regularly, but I slipped yesterday, and this puts me out of action for the next 15-30 Days… 😦

sit

My sling bag as you can see is a simple one, and not designed by some famous designer. Now, If SRK can have a designer sling bag, walk on the ramp, and even charge hefty for it, yaar mera ek smiling selfie aur blog post toh banta hai 🙂

Right now, I can do only one thing..Sing (I am in pain, so pls ignore the nonsensical words)

bar se phisal ke
hum gire jahaan par
lamha tham gaya

Dard bhula ke ji raha hoon
nikli hai dil se ye duaa
Theek kar de tu mero Shoulderwa
Theek kar de tu mero Shoulderwa

Pane integrale upma

Ciao, honestly I am bored of having bread egg omelet every day. So I decided to make Pane integrale upma today, sans the eggs. Pane integrale upma  is my name for apna brown bread upma. If all the hoteliers can give exotic names to simple food items in their menu card, why can’t I? Huh! Pane integrale is the Italian word for brown bread 🙂

20160630_12102120160630_123535

Here’s a quick recipe of Pane Integrale Upma. Dice few slices of brown bread, some chopped onions, coriander, a green chilly cut in half, and few curry leaves. For those who don’t know the difference between Coriander and Parsley, Coriander is slightly lighter green, and has rounder leaves, while Parsley is a darker green and has more pointy, sharper leaves. The leaf on the left is Coriander, and the one on RHS is Parsley.

CP

Heat some oil in a Kadai, add mustard seeds, curry leaves, green chilly and the chopped onions. Saute the onions till they turn brown, and then add the masalas.

Final step, add the diced bread, and mix well. If you like it crunchy, then put the flame on high for few minutes. Pane integrale upma is ready in no time.

Only Eggs

These days I am not taking my food seriously. For serious gym goers diet contributes majorly, you ought to eat right. Last year I followed a strict diet. Dunno why I am little lax this year, and now that’s becoming visibly evident  as my waistline grows exponentially 😦

It’s high time, and I need to start eating the right stuff. So here I am eating eggs again, a rich source of proteins. Instead of having plain boiled eggs, I decided to make Boiled Egg Masala today, and was happy with the final outcome (pic below).  

Egg Masala

It did taste yummy, but then my favorite remains the Egg Burji. Here’s how I prepare the Egg burji. The street vendors usually add lots of onion and tomato but they add only a single egg per plate of Burji. I usually add atleast 2-3 eggs when I prepare the burji.

Burji-1.jpgBurji-2

Add lots of onion, tomato, green chillies, masalas, and then smash it with a smasher. Finally pour the eggs, and mix them well with the dry gravy. Allow the eggs to cook properly, while making small lumps of the burji intermittently.

Burji-3

I prefer having a dry burji and I tend to cook it a little more. You can have the burji with Chapati or Pav. A quick recipe, high in proteins and perfect for a morning breakfast or as sabji for lunch.

Burji-4

I hope to take my diet seriously again. Will post more Egg recipes in my coming blogs. Try the burji or the boiled egg masala, if the pics looked enticing. Eat healthy and stay fit!

My Gym Life!!

Me

This pic is my latest. Ideally, I should also post my old pic before I joined the gym. But, that would be too embarrassing for me. Last year when I joined the gym in Feb’2015, my waist was 39 inches and weight 71 kgs. I was completely out of shape. In fact, I was never in a proper shape all throughout my existence on this earth till date.

There were many other shapeless souls like me in the gym as well. But I liked & respected their dedication & perseverance. Like me they came everyday, some ran on the treadmill, and some tried lifting weights beyond their capacity. I too wanted to lift heavy, more than I could. A nice point made by Master Trainer Prashant, keeps ringing in my mind..

“There is no point in going to the gym, if you develop muscles which can’t lift heavy”

Prashant has been really helpful, giving me his valuable time to answer my queries, and always encouraging.(Sketch of Master Trainer Prashant)

I started transforming slowly, and by the end of 2015, I weighed 55 Kgs with a waist less than 30 inches. And I tried lifting heavy too. My best deadlift so far has been around 120 kgs (around 264 pounds), almost twice my body weight. I liked when some guys appreciated and were inspired watching my workout.

This has been my story so far. I still have a long way to go before I post a pic with 16 inch biceps, 42 inch chest, and a 28 inch waist 🙂 It takes time to build a nice physique, if you want to do it the clean way (without steroids). So far, I have enjoyed every bit of my gym life. I came across some dedicated souls & made few inspiring friends (Hari, Jitu, Deb, Agnelo, Haseeb, Amol), and I been able to push myself beyond my false boundaries.

Leaving you with a link of my old blog post. At the end of the blog you’ll find a very inspiring video of Aaron Sands, a blind bodybuilder. Do watch it. (Where are the mirrors?)

Cheers!!

Go Heavy

My Email Signatures

These days I been doing lot of modeling using R programming language. So much so, that I have now started expressing quotes in email signatures using R.

Here are some samples of my email signatures. Hope you understand and like them 🙂

Signature Example 1: (Keep fighting for what is yours)

Input code:
library(Hardwork) ; library(Determination) ;
success_mantra = cat(rep(“Don’t stop,”,3),” running towards your Dream!!”)

Output:
[1] Don’t stop, Don’t stop, Don’t stop running towards your Dream!!

Signature Example 2: (Trying to convey how important it is to keep learning)

Input code:
system.time ({
status = as.stopped.learning(“Literate”)
print(status)
})

Output:
[1] “Illiterate”
user   system  elapsed
0          0             0

Signature Example 3: (An attempt to convey that time passes quickly, enjoy life to the fullest)

Input code:
for (n in seq(12000,0,-4000))
{ print(as.Date(Sys.time()) – n  }

Output:
[1] “1983-07-09”
[1] “1994-06-21”
[1] “2005-06-03”
[1] “2016-05-16”

Aanewala pal jaane wala hai, Ho sake to iss mein zindagi bitaa do…
Pal jo yeh jaane wala hai….ho, Aanewala pal jaane wala hai…
