dilli rocks!!

Wanted to write something last saturday and thought about putting up a post that night, but my thought process was interrupted by the Serial blasts that rocked Delhi that evening... At 6.30pm me and my entire family was glued to the TV watching horrific images of the blasts that ripped across 5 places in New Delhi..there was blood on the streets, injured people, dead bodies on the streets of Delhi being beamed on TV channels all across the country...

The one thing that moved all of us was the amazing solidarity shown by the people of this city when it came to managing the situation. The security agencies took control swiftly, the injured were moved to the hospitals as fast they could be, all the important markets in New Delhi were evacuated and search for more bombs began..Soon 5 more live bombs were diffused in and around Connaught Place. The NSG (the elitest force in the country) took over and defused the bombs, collected the forensic samples from the bomb sites for further analysis.

I had booked tickets to go for an 11.30pm show with my friends but had to cancel because of the security situation, hopefully i will go this week sometime...

The next day morning, New Delhi was back to normal, everyone was out on the street, the markets where the blasts had occured had opened shops again, everyone was standing shoulder to shoulder, ready to face yet another day and not to bend to the threat of terror.

Teachers day crushes..

Tomorrow is teachers day in India...a day on which we salute and honour all our teachers/professors who have made added some value to our lives in howsoever big or small way...

On this day we honour our Lt President Radhakrishnan, who was a teacher before he went onto become the president of India.

But other than just honouring our teachers/professors on this day...i would like to ask you if any of you had any crushes on your school teachers/professors.... I had my share of them in school...and to just name a few

1) Civics teacher (social sciences)...awesomely hot..sultry..and the way she carried herself, Sushmita Sen would have felt an inferiority complex..When she walked the corridor, the smell of her perfume lasted for like 15mins....

2) My english teacher...oh man...had never seen anyone carry the saree off better than her... It was simply awesome...

3) Computer Sc teacher..well she didnt teach me...but she was a sight to see in the computer lab..

Never had any crushes during my engg/mba as there werent any crush worthy teachers there..

So lets get to know your crushes...
