Just wanted to share a “proud” moment with you all 🙂
I received my first casual “testimonial” (as a Fbuk Wallpost) from a very supportive and encouraging team of film-makers for a movie for which I did the background score.
Am really excited and hopeful. THANK YOU friends…for being there with me ..always 🙂 Best wishes to you all.
Here goes the testimonial:
“Adi its the moment to be proud as our music for ON THE RUN has cleared all copyright violations. The music has no resemblance to any music and is considered genuine and original. so now you can indeed claim and healm the tag of MUSIC DIRECTOR for ON THE RUN until eternity.
And to all those who know or visit Adityas wall, he did a masterpiece score for the short film titled ON THE RUN which will go for short film festivals after september. unfortunately this film will not come online for a year as its under copyright restrictions in terms of public viewing and broadcasting over net, but I am sure all you guys will get a taste of this film and obviously its music when the original DVD reaches Adi by post.
So Adi BEST OF LUCK FOR ALL THE FUTURE ASSIGNMENTS YOU UNDERTAKE AND guys we intend to do an international project as well together, will keep you updated on that later as the project is still in its inception stages.
THREE CHEERS FOR ADI HIP HIP HURRAYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Just a quick impromptu “Enviro Art” and “Enviro Poem” I just created few moments back.
This was for an Enviro drive going on at my work-place.
Hope you all will like it.
The Famous FIVE !!
The open skies to fly high
or be it a beautiful lake for a refreshing dive
The sweetest honey from a beehive
or there’s that garden so nearby
Everything is so full of wonders..
though it’s just a matter of FIVE !
The ears want music , recorded or live !
And what better when you are on a long drive.
Lush green pastures and those tender grapvines
on which those cute lil caterpliars crawl n thrive !
Everything is so full of wonders..
though it’s just a matter of FIVE !
Humpty dumpty who sat on a wall
or that baba blacksheep famous for her wool
Mary’s little lamb or that old man Johny so cool
Cute simple funny but full of LIFE
Or for that matter..The epic of Mahabharata ..
..or Governments of today hi fi..
Life’s both Simple and complex but..it’s all just a matter of FIVE !
FIVE are the elements that make up LIFE,
Together called NATURE..they are the real “Famous FIVE”
Let’s show them “We care” every moment..
..and it’s not just a matter of June FIVE !!
Well, it was just another Status update that I had posted over this weekend. Copied and pasted the words of an enlightened one, giving him due credits – no plagiarism you see ☺
“Desire is beautiful, there is nothing wrong in it — only free it from objects. Freedom from objects ! — and desire is divine.” OSHO
As I always feel after such posts, I was happy that I had posted something good, and it might float over the net to reach the apt set of minds.
To be very honest, I had not expected this to happen, but I was surprised to see a response from a friend of mine.
“free it from objects.. which means don’t desire materialistic things… then what do we desire ??”
..and it rang bells !! I am really thankful to our “thought-weaver and supplier”, whosoever he/she is (God/Nature..call it anything), that this thought sprung up in my friend’s mind. It lead me to introspect and think about this “update” – I soon realized that this was more than a status update .. much more !!
The “thought-weaver” in me helped me find some response to this. I am glad about that. Seems to be an apt one so far. What occurred to me is :
“..desire for what u derive out of those objects – desire for the ‘happiness’ , ‘satisfaction’ etc – the final ‘feel’ that u get out of an object, person, relationship etc. Let’s NOT stick to : I wanna be happy using this ‘thing’ ..or by this ‘person’…lets simply desire that ‘I wanna be happy’..this way the desire becomes limitless. Becomes easier for Nature/Almighty to help us .. lets not give him choices n options..that I wanna be happy by eating pizza… lets desire that I wanna feel that satisfaction that comes out of a lovely meal 🙂 … BTW – even I am on a learning journey – this is what I could derive from it. Hope that helped !! Cheers.”
Just thought of sharing with you all – so this note/blog !!
This small interaction changed something in me – I feel ‘enriched’ ☺
Thanks for your time to read through my friend.

Hello friends! 🙂
I am writing this to bring to your notice a cause that I personally feel is not getting its due importance. Some of you may have seen the TED talk by Dr. Sunitha Krishnan and a few of you may have read about it on my blog or other places. But she is basically the founder of Prajwala, an anti-trafficking organization in India.
If you have not already done so, it is my (very humble) request to you to check out her TED talk at the link below. I am asking you to do so simply because no amount of writing that I do here will do justice to the enormity of the problem faced by tens of thousands of women and children that Prajwala is trying to help. So please read the rest of this note only after watching that video and only if you are interested in doing more.
After watching that video, I was left pretty horrified and I tried to read up more on trafficking and also see ways to help Dr. Krishnan and her efforts. In the process, I also stumbled upon Prajwala page on Facebook and to my utter disappointment found that it has less 200 members. For an organization that has saved 3200 women and more than 5000 children, that is just pathetic. It shows that either people are unaware about it, or they chose to ignore it.
If you think you want to make a small gesture to this cause at all, I think a good way to start is to follow the FB page at the link below. They have plenty of eye opening videos there that you could watch. Joining a FB page might not look like doing much but it can still help making it a topic of conversation and showing support to the cause.
Please join it only if you sincerely believe that people should be aware of the horrendous acts happening around them and if you feel that you must take a small step, in any whichever way, to stop them. There are no obligations at all! 🙂
Just wanted to share some info with you, so that you are out of any sorts of trouble ☺
I got a call this morning, supposedly from Airtel, stating that I’ve won some lottery. The way that guy spoke wasn’t so convincing. So, I enquired the same from Airtel and got to know that this was a FRAUD. Please refer to the details in the text given below. It’ll help.
Please spread the word if you feel like !!
Thanks and take care.
(Excerpts from my interaction with Airtel.)
Subject: URGENT : Airtel LOTTERY – FRAUD or TRUE ??
This is regarding a phone call that I received from supposedly an Airtel executive. Please read on and assist me.
I got a call from one Mr. Sunil today (20 March 2010 9:39 A.M.) from this phone no.: +923437831712.
He mentioned that he was calling from Airtel Mumbai and informed me that I have won an Airtel Lottery worth Rs.25Lakhs on my phone number.
He further added that to claim this amount I need to do the following:
1. Call up this no. – 009 230 5500 3595
2. ..and ask for Senior Supervisor Vijay Kumar .
3. ..and supposedly Vijay will tell me how to proceed.
Now, I just want to confirm this thing with Airtel as I have had no clue of such a lottery being held. Please assist me by confirming the same.
Also Mr.Sunil did not sound like a groomed customer care guy, thereby raising a few doubts !!
Looking forward to your response.
Response from Airtel
Dear Aditya Pathak,
Thank you for contacting Airtel.
You have inquired about the details of lottery for your Airtel mobile number 9xxxxxxxxx.
We would like to inform you that we request you not to attend those calls, who calls and informs you that you have won a lottery/award conducted by the respective telecom operator. We assure you that these calls do not represent Airtel.
At Airtel would like to issue a general advisory to all mobile/landline users to protect them from such malicious activities. Hence, we request you to notes these things in this concern:
1. Avoid responding to suspicious missed calls from unknown numbers, especially those beginning with +92.
2. Do not respond to any SMS from unknown sources prompting to call on a number.
3. Refrain from sharing any personal information & identity proofs like Voter ID Number, PAN Number, Bank Account Number, Credit Card information or make any payment to people promising lottery or other unexpected awards.
4. Do not disclose your handset IMEI or SIM card number to unknown callers. IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) is a unique code given by handset manufacturer for your number. This can be obtained by pressing *#06#.
5. In case of suspicious calls, report the same to the concerned security authorities / service provider.
6. Mainly not to recharge using DTH recharge coupons

Creativity has nothing to do with any activity in particular – with painting, poetry, dancing, singing. It has nothing to do with anything in particular.
Anything can be creative – WE bring that quality to the activity. Activity itself is neither creative nor uncreative. WE can paint in an uncreative way. WE can sing in an uncreative way. WE can clean the floor in a creative way. WE can cook in a creative way.
Creativity is the quality that WE bring to the activity we are doing. It is an ATTITUDE, an Inner-Approach – how WE look at things.
