Sab's world
Six ! 
no, its not the title of Manoj Night Shyamalan's next movie .. its the number of years past since i met my wife meghana for the first time. as usual, i had forgotten all these supposedly 'important' dates (just like i still keep forgetting my wife's bday !) and its my wife who reminded me of it.

back in 2000, august 11th to be precise, i 'officially' met her at bangalore along with my long time buddy sunil viswanathan. we both went for lunch the next day at some restaurant in barton center (mg road, bangalore) along with sunil and his then 'friend' (now his wife) sony. and even before two weeks from then (august 23rd to be precise), we were married !!!!!

both sunil's son and my elder son are named rohan - and this was absolutely co-incidental.

this is sabs signing off .. marking the countdown to his sixth wedding anniversary.

The new GILLETTE ad ...  
weekend is over. the biggest achievement was that of what you see below. yes, i cut ankit's hair and shaved it to make it shiny ! big change on his looks. he was very co-operative and in fact, he had fun when the shaving was going on. the whole thing took about 30-40 minutes only :)

before after

here is how he looked right before the tonsuring and right after it !! would this qualify for the next gillette ad ? :)

ankit, as usual, is a happy camper without even knowing what he lost but makes a frowning face when asked where his hair was !

this is sabs signing off for today.

may his soul rest in peace .. 
i heard an absolute shocker just now. uma mahesh, a very close friend of mine, died today morning :(



he was young (maybe 31-32 years old), energetic, funny, very helpful and an excellent imitator of my other friends but his life is a good example of how alcohol can ruin one's life.

he lived close to my house in PTP nagar (the residential colony in Kerala where i used to live). i knew him from 1980 onwards. he worked with bharat tours and travels (in trivandrum) for 5 years and then started his own business named umesh travels. he had married his childhood sweetheart but for some reasons they split couple of years back. he used to be party drinker before but he resorted to heavy drinking after that incident - maybe he thought that would fix his sorrows. in spite of doctors warning that his liver is all damaged and he should not touch alcohol anymore, he continued his drinking and today morning, the inevitable happened.

attached is his last mail to me which was sent two months back.



note on why this part has been deleted : upon second thoughts, i think it is not appropriate to post someone else's personal mail on a public domain like this, so i took it off.



there is no more uma mahesh to reply to... may his soul rest in peace!

domo arigato .. 
wondering what the title means ? thats japanese ! thats what you tell your instructor at the end of a karate class... and why am i telling this now ?

just got the wonderful news that my niece Gayathri (aka Ponni) received her 1st dan black belt today (25th May 2006) !! wowowowow !! cool, isnt it ?

click image

here's she doing a roundhouse kick on some other kid, as a part of her black belt test and another pic of her when she was little more young.

she is very young (not even in her teens), pretty, tall and good in her studies too.

talking about karate, do you guys know that i too hold a black belt ? yeah, that was bought from a nearby shop where they sell pants, shirts and other mens wear :)

those who wish to congratulate her may do so in the comments section.

thats me signing off for now. have a great long weekend !
