Ladies and Gentlemen, this was Bangalore, in 2004. And since then I have been longing to catch a glimpse once again. Bryan Adams is performing in New York in April, and I AM GOING! It is a Friday, I have applied for leave, and I am going to be there, to see him perform again! Can’t wait, New York City, I am coming! :)

I insisted some of my friends from my pervious team on sending me letters. Hand written letters. I was sure that the idea would be shooed away upfront and I will meet the same old – oh come on, you meant really or what! But I was proved wrong. And this was one of those times when you love to be proved wrong. I didn’t get just one two, I received six letters. Six handwritten letters! And not just one page letters, 1 one page, 3 two pages, 1 four pages, 1 five pages. Just opening the envelope was such a wow moment! :)
Shiks - one cool cat! Thanks for taking me down the memory lane and getting me nostalgic! miss those days! and you deserve a special thanks for convincing others and distributing A4 sheets too! :)
Sowji - for overlooking my lack of effort in staying connected and still writing to me, you are super cool!
Vini - for making me laugh till I cried. I pardon you for your most horrible handwriting too :) you rock buddy!
Surabhi - for not only writing a wonderful letter, but writing it in hindi! Kudos, and thanks a ton! Was such an enjoyable experience!
Dhinesh - for writing my testimonial almost. Why don’t you actually forward the same text as my orkut testimonial! The only slight problem is you wont know the text as there is no Sent Items for handwritten letters :D
Rahul - for letting me know that what the..! there are better ways to keep connected! This isn’t the coolest. But still writing :) (But believe me Rahul, this is the coolest! :) )
