Some highs and lows from 2011.
Some things I am not happy about for 2011.
- 2011 – Twenty Eleven (not two thousand and eleven, jeez). Every newspaper and TV guy still doesn’t know how to say 2011. Bad, very bad!!!
- The year my blog started actually dying (still dying but I have put it on life support )
- Rebecca Black became a Youtube sensation with a song that blew the minds of millions of viewers. (Some say most people needed quick intervention from psychiatrists to save viewers’ sanity).
- Justin Beiber became a pop start from being a Youtube sensation. Again, Jeez. What idiotic songs…
And the exciting stuff:
- The Indian cricket team conquered the world and were crowned World Champions – until 2015!!!
- Ayden turned a year old last September – or was it August? Hmmm… Anyway it was an amazing moment for me (and the mommy)
- I became more financially stable than the previous years. Still not up to my expectations, though.
- My younger bro became a father to a lovely boy. Neat!
- Metallica rocked Bangalore with their trademark style and tempo. Awesome!!!
Hmmm… can’t remember more. Errr…
My predictions for 2012 (Twenty Twelve, get it? TWENTY TWELVE)
- Personally looking forward to another slightly drab year.
- Financially, not expecting to touch the moon. Maybe a few clouds.
- Professionally, expecting to do wonders and turnaround my fortunes by the end of the year.
- Family, looking forward to a tumultuous time of learning and growing up for Ayden, Nafisa and I.
- Happiness – looking forward to have a FUN year ahead – personally and professionally.

Caption for this picture in a newspaper a few days back:
“BEACH BABES: Model Pia Trivedi gets her workout playing volleyball and (right) Candice Pinto”
And the picture of the whole article for an overview.
Is my mind really crooked or can others see the flipside too?
The Heat is definitely On!

This should be damn cool, if it isn’t an April Fool’s day prank.
From AA website:
“Despite these innovations, tackling severe road congestion and unpredictable weather conditions, is still a challenge for the UK’s biggest breakdown company. However, help is at hand for the AA, which after 105 years with road-based patrols, is putting patrols in the sky for the first time.
The AA has secretly been running ‘Project Apollo’ based at Dunsfold Aerodrome near Guildford. Here specially adapted AA Jetpacks have been trialled to help patrols get to vehicles that other motoring organisations cannot reach.”
And a picture
Apparently, this has been designed to help out stranded motorists and probably accident victims on not accessible or crowded roads.
And an Youtube channel too – http://www.youtube.com/user/theAAPatrol
I think it is a prank. What do you think?

Did you know that Bono, the frontman for the rock band U2, is the only person on earth nominated for an Oscar, Grammy, Golden Globe and Nobel Peace Prize?
I never knew that until today – found through NTDWA
