Eve Online

Eve online is a space based MMORPG game in which the player has tonnes of cool stuff to do. Non-Player Agent based missions, Player vs Player missions, Corp Management, Mining, Productivity, etc, etc ... are just a few that you can do in the game.

If you dream of Warp drives and Stargates, this is the way to go...

Trying to save a dying blog...

Haven't been posting anything lately...I used to at least paste a lyrics here once a month. This might be the side effects of being regular on Flickr, and the introduction of micro blogging via Twitter.

MvBlogsphere itself looks a little empty and crowded as well. By crowded I mean with "junk". But again "junk" for me might be gold to someone else. However I really don't think a Blogsphere is a place for people to post 'Dhivehi Bitun' and 'Cute Nude Dudes' !!!

So I guess the "real" blogging days are long gone. We don't see much in the RSS feeds going on lately...not only by me...but by anyone else either except a few.

Caught the Sun


Caught the Sun, originally uploaded by Athafani.

The Sun is on its way down after a busy days work on the first day of the year 2009. I don't know the actual intention, but it seems that the guy is trying to stop the sun from going down...

It's human nature to hold on to things that he loves in the world. No matter how hard or odd the task ahead looks, we end up doing our best to to hold on to it...

Love's Sweet Salute

I salute the dark magic of your eyes.
I salute the dark cloud of your hair.
The music of your anklets wounds me to the heart, my love.
Hey beautiful, I salute your every lovely allure.
Love's sweet salute!

I salute the mystery of your teasing banter.
I salute the nights drenched in passion's colour.
Lost in dreams am I. Crazed with love am I.
Hey beautiful, I salute your every lovely allure.
Love's sweet salute!

Love is...

Your hands are adorned with henna's bridal red...
You have found the lover of your dreams.
Our lovely bride is more precious than the whole world.
O loving groom, carry her away in the bridal palanquin.

When our eyes met the very first time...
I fell in love with you.
Not just my heart...
My life is yours to take.
In you I put my trust...

For you, I'd even die.
Look at what my crazed love has made me do!
My every hearbeat is restless with longing.
In my eyes reside the dreams of you.
I salute my darling whom I love more than life.
Love's sweet salute!

Love is...

For your love I'd lay down earth and heaven.
Have faith in the promise I make you.
Heaven proclaims as does this earth...
There's none other like you!

Don't cast such enticing lures.
I'm wary of coming close to you.
Stop flatttering me with false praise.
Join your heart to mine.
I salute the prayer coming deep from your heart.
Love's sweet salute!

My only plea to God...is to forgive me...
...for I offer my worship only to you.
My darling, you don't know...
...how much I love you.

Without you there is no light.
On my forhead I wear the bridal red of your vow.
My breath carries but one message...
All I have is yours.
I salute the beloved who live in my heart.
Love's sweet salute!

I salute the dark magic of your eyes.
I salute the dark cloud of your hair.
Lost in dreams am I. Crazed with love am I.
Hey beautiful, I salute your every lovely allure.
Hey beautiful, I salute your every lovely allure.
Love's sweet salute!

3 years ago...today...right now !


When big things happen, you don't see it coming, and most of the time it turns the whole life the other way around. I was no exception to this general law of the nature...

3 years ago I was minding my own business, following the daily boring routine...like bots...doing what I was programmed to do. All of a sudden a 'big bang' occured. They say that the universe started with a bang, my version of the statement goes like this 'life started with a big-bang!". After the bang everything is still...silent and lonely...you can even hear the echoes of the wind....so was it with me.

Seconds, minutes, hours, days and months passed. Slowly, the silence after the bang started to vanish. Soon a new life started, and I'm living it now. It's pretty amazing...no...very amazing...and lovely. Ladies and gentlemen....welcome to life...!

Access tinyurl.com on ROL

I haven't been able to access tinyurl.com using ROL connections lately. And it had become kinda the de-facto method to share URLs, especially on twitter. Here is a way to access tinyurl.com for now atleast.

Open C:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts file using notepad (remember to open notepad using admin privileges in Vista) and add the following lines and save:

85.255.210.131 tinyurl.com
85.255.210.131 www.tinyurl.com

This did the job for me...hope it helps other guys...but remember to check often and remove these as soon as ROL resolves the issue since this is intended to be a temporary solution.

Kyon Aage Peechhe


kyon aage peechhe dolte ho bhanwron ki tarah
kyon dekhte ho mujhko yun besabron ki tarah
kyon aage peechhe dolte ho bhanwron ki tarah
kyon dekhte ho mujhko yun besabron ki tarah
kya mere deewane ho nahi nahi
kya koi parwaane ho nahi nahi
kya mere deewane ho
kya koi parwaane ho
kaam kya hai mujhse itna keh do ji zara
bol de pyar hai khaamosh kyon hai khada
hum agar hote toh bol diya hota
kyon aage peechhe dolte ho bhanwron ki tarah
kyon dekhte ho mujhko yun besabron ki tarah

khidki pe meri kyon rakhte ho ankhiya
karte ho kyon tum meri hi batiyaan
khidki pe meri kyon rakhte ho ankhiya
karte ho kyon tum meri hi batiyaan
mere liye aate ho nahi toh geet gungunate ho
mere liye aate ho nahi toh geet gungunate ho
baat kya hai dil mein tumhare tumko hi pata
chhod de yeh sharam tu paas usko bula
hum agar hote toh bula liya hota
kyon aage peechhe dolte ho bhanwron ki tarah
kyon dekhte ho mujhko yun besabron ki tarah

haathon mein kyon hai yeh sone ka kangana
tumko pehnaake le jaaunga angana
sajani banaaoge haa ji haa ji haa
jaan bhi lutaaoge arey haa ji haa ji haa
sajani banaaoge jaan bhi lutaaoge
aaj hum kahte hai tumse pyar ho gaya
haath yeh thaamkar kaha pe tu hai chala
apna bhi shukriya kar diya hota

hum aage peechhe dolte hai bhanwron ki tarah
hum dekhte hai tumko yun besabron ki tarah
kya mere deewane haa ji haa ji haa
kya koi parwaane arey haa ji haa ji haaji haa
kya mere deewane ho kya koi parwaane ho
aaj hum kahte hai tumse pyar ho gaya
kyon aage peechhe dolte ho bhanwron ki tarah
kyon dekhte ho mujhko yun besabron ki tarah
kyon aage peechhe dolte ho bhanwron ki tarah
kyon dekhte ho mujhko yun besabron ki tarah
kya mere deewane ho nahi nahi
kya koi parwaane ho nahi nahi
kya mere deewane ho
kya koi parwaane ho
kaam kya hai mujhse itna keh do ji zara
bol de pyar hai khaamosh kyon hai khada
hum agar hote toh bol diya hota
kyon aage peechhe dolte ho bhanwron ki tarah
kyon dekhte ho mujhko yun besabron ki tarah

khidki pe meri kyon rakhte ho ankhiya
karte ho kyon tum meri hi batiyaan
khidki pe meri kyon rakhte ho ankhiya
karte ho kyon tum meri hi batiyaan
mere liye aate ho nahi toh geet gungunate ho
mere liye aate ho nahi toh geet gungunate ho
baat kya hai dil mein tumhare tumko hi pata
chhod de yeh sharam tu paas usko bula
hum agar hote toh bula liya hota
kyon aage peechhe dolte ho bhanwron ki tarah
kyon dekhte ho mujhko yun besabron ki tarah

haathon mein kyon hai yeh sone ka kangana

sajani banaaoge haa ji haa ji haa
jaan bhi lutaaoge arey haa ji haa ji haa
