2000 miles apart is a land that has mystified everyone over the years. Some call it the global financial center, some call it the best holiday destination. For me it’s one place I have always dearly wanted to visit (especially outside India).

It’s said that when the time comes everything falls in place! That’s exactly what happened with me too. I’ve been planning to visit Singapore since ages but it never materialized. The photos of people visiting this place would build up my desire to visit even more. The more plans I made, the more it felt short of something. Guess I was short on lady luck! 🙂 Last year however, my dream came true. Loads of discussions and research went on in what was to be one of the most memorable tours in my life. The thrill and excitement of a dream come true is truly amazing. You can see that smile stuck up on my face in the photo as well! (LOL)
10 years! Just can’t believe it! A dream that was shared by everyone, a sport that was loved by everyone, a tournament that became the spirit of sportsmanship and a bond that developed more friends that I could have ever imagined. Amit Joshi Memorial Softball Tournament or now rebranded and known as ASL (AAY’s Softball League) has now become a respectable name in all of India. The players who played the first year would remember how quickly this idea was materialised. An emotional attempt to bring friends together and contribute to the sport that made us who we are today.

I remember each and every year how it evolved and how we made true every dream that we had seen as a young player.
You just can’t take your eyes off at the site of a Rolls Royce or a Lamborghini. Innovation in automobiles have taken giant strides and I have always dreamt of getting my hands on one of them. The design, power and architectural genius behind these machines is amazing. Convertibles, Limo’s anything, these mean machines blend amazing with their designs with absolutely no compromise on their performance.
It was 1996-1997 when we purchased our first car. My Ferrari or Red Horse as we lovingly call it, and it has been in our family for over 20 years now. I still remember the happiness in my parents eyes! The entire building was down to take a look at a dream come true.
It was a status symbol then for most of the people to own a car but for my parents the reason was simple – “Family can travel together”. It’s been 20 years since that winter, and even today, I still see the same bond. After more than 2 decades of relentless use and sharing innumerable happy/sad occasions, I knew it was time to give some rest to our 800 CC Maruti. But, not just buying any car and definitely not another 2nd hand! My parents had waited long enough and deserved much better! Continue reading →
