The film Jodha Akbar, which created quite a controversy regarding the female lead is now making millions.. The fact that the movie portrayed Jodhabai as married to Akbar had hurt the sentiments of the rajput community, the reason being historical facts.They claimed that Jodhabai was not the Mughal emperor Akbar's wife as depicted in the movie.. neither was she the daughter of Raja Bharmal of Amber near Jaipur as shown in the movie and that she was the wife of Akbar’s son Salim!! Akbar's daughter-in-law, his wife? you better watch the movie if this interests you.. The film stars hithrik roshan and aishwarya rai.. and was released on the 15th of this month.
Whatever, despite being surrounded with controversies, the film crosses Rs 74 crores (approx 19 million USD) in just 10 days worldwide... a record for a Indian film!!
Yes the day has arrived.. its my birthday today and i feel so special. My family had wished me at sharp 12'o'clock last night and I was showered with lovely presents, i shall always cherish. All i wish for, is the love and support I've always received by my visitors/readers.Thanks so much, each one of you :) Now its time to focus on my sun sign, the one am blessed with since birth. Am a piscean born and people think am loving and kind:) people also say am mysterious! lets see what my sun sign has to say about me, and do you agree? does anyone share the same sign, as mine? leave your messages in the comment box below..
Pisces is the last sign of the zodiac, which has the symbol of 'The Fish'. Pisces people are not much interested in the material things of life and are not the ones to run after money. It's not that they are against riches, but they are more aware of its impermanence. They are not greedy about anything, least of all wealth. A Piscean has an easy carelessness about tomorrow. Pisces display either of the two basic personalities traits - going with the flow or against it. They will either go where the current takes them or fight against it.
Only if they choose the latter one, will they be truly happy and satisfied with their life. When they manage to do this, they are sure to reach the highest echelons of success. A Piscean characteristics profile exhibits loads of charm and a very easygoing attitude. He is not bothered by restrictions, as long as he has the right to dream and live his own life. Radical opinions do not stimulate him at all, nor do insults make him agitated. Very few things compel him to lose his temper. When a Pisces does get angry, it is better to stay away.
He can give the most sarcastic comments, be extremely rude and lash you with a scathing tongue. The best part is that the anger seldom lasts long and he will be his usual placid self again. When he sees the world, his eyes seem to be covered with rose-colored spectacles. Pisceans live in the world of their own, even when they are completely aware of the rough side of humanity. In their world, everyone is good and everything is beautiful. They have a very sharp memory and tend to remember the minutest of details.
When we give a description of Pisces personality, one of the basic traits that come in mind is its soothing stability. Even in the worst of storms, a Piscean will never panic and will maintain his poise. He has a good intuition and if he tells you not to go out of the house on a particular day, it is better to stay indoors. Pisces is the last sign of the zodiac and represents death and eternity. It has a blend of the qualities of all the other zodiacs. It is because of this fusion that it becomes very difficult to truly understand a Pisces.
A Piscean likes to argue, loves nature and holds fierce ambitions. He is deeply interested in music and art. He has great wisdom and is very compassionate towards the weak. He loves to help people in distress and utilizes most of his energy doing this only. You will never know when a Piscean is profoundly hurt. He hides his deepest emotions behind a veil of humor. The humor may be warm and innocent or cold and ruthless. However, it is sure to be a mask for some other emotion, more often than not.
Laughter is his best cover and he will use it wisely. He has compassion for the sick and even tries to understand the feelings of the lonely. Even those who are weak by choice will get Pisces shoulder to cry on. He never judges people and accepts them just as they are. He knows all your vices and virtues, understands them and will still be there if you need him. He wants to help everyone; still most of the people fail to understand the sensitivity of the fish. He absorbs the positive as well as the negative vibrations around him.
The world needs the creativity, imagination and empathy of Pisceans and they know it. Very often, they bury their own dreams to see their loved ones realizing their ambitions. One quality of Pisceans that is very annoying is that they hate to answer questions in a simple 'Yes' or 'No'. Mostly, the answer will be a 'Maybe'. Still, he cares and he lets you know that. He is much stronger and wiser than most of the other people, he only has to realize it. The moment he struggles against the tide, you know he will reach the shore before anyone else.
Feng Shui Tips for Pisceans for the year 2008
1. Place a basil plant or Sunflower in the East direction and daily water it. It will give you good luck for health.
2. Highlight pink shade in your bed room. You can do this by whitewashing walls in pink hue or using pink bed sheets and curtains.
3. Place a Venus yantra in the South East corner of bed room.
90% of my personality matches my sun sign!!
Here is a bit of a weird spooky bit of trivia to usher in Halloween.
Florence Irene Ford Born: September 3, 1861 Died : October 30, 1871
Ten-year-old Florence died of yellow fever. During her short life she was very frightened of storms and whenever one rolled-in she would rush to her mother to find comfort.
Upon her death her mother was so struck with grief that she had Florence’s casket constructed with a glass window at the child’s head. The grave was dug to provide an area, the same depth of the coffin, at the child’s head, but this area had steps that would allow the mother to descend to her daughter’s level so she could comfort Florence during storms. To shelter the mother during storms, hinged metal trap doors were installed over the area the mother would occupy while at her child’s grave.
In this picture you can see the trap doors behind little Florence’s tombstone, which covers the stairway her mother used. They can still be opened today. In the mid 1950s a concrete wall was erected at the bottom of the stairway covering the glass window of Florence’s coffin to prevent vandalism. Kinda strange and spooky, eh?

Baby Alisha has turned 15 months now! When i had last posted about her(12th month), she could hardly walk. Barely would she stand up, trying to walk and bang! On her bottom she would fall. Finally her attempts have paid off (it takes alot of hard work to finally get going :)) and the toddler has walked her way of out babyhood... Lately, she started doing summersaults! Can you imagine that? But i love encouraging her on that, its alot of fun and play... plus helps to develop her skills.
She doesn’t bother about the computer anymore for the TV seems to mesmerize her. While she loves to watch cartoons and all the bollywood dance numbers, she is no less than a dancing doll! Clicking her fingers and trying to shake just like Aishwarya in the video crazy kya re! Haha that’s my little 15 month old!
A few days ago she cut her lip while hopping around, it bled alot and guess what? My knee was the culprit :( in the night i found her talking away in an inncocent angry babyish tone to my knee, as if complaining “why did you hurt me"??? I smiled, took her in my arms and loved her... babies are that innocent :)
Oh and how she loves talking in her gibberish language, just how as much as we all love listening to her. After all, these days will never come again... she calls every living thing "papa" imagine? The dog, cow, goat or even the baby on TV is her "papa"!! :)
She admires the other baby in the mirror... makes monkey faces, kisses the other babys face and then lifts her hands and legs while wondering why the other baby in the mirror does the same! Even butts the other baby teaseingly ;)
Babies at this age are very troublesome but lesser than what a 12th, 13th, 14th month baby is! Of course tantrums still continue and she butts her head into me if i refuse her anything. I just have to tell her "bye baby, am going" even if am sitting in the same room as her, she'll come walking quickly saying "no no no no"... she cant walk quickly but tries, a few falls and she’s trying again:) but my cutie understands what's right and what's not.. Isn’t she growing big too quickly!!
Baby will get her vaccine this month and i also want to remind other moms and dads to be in time for their babies vaccines... Remember it’s critical for your baby and should be your first priority :)
If you have a baby/toddler.. leave your comments about your little. Am curiously looking foward to hearing about their innocence/tantrums/milestones etc.. And give her/him a tight hug n kiss from me :)

I came across this news which will get you thinking, do you have a common anscestor too? Aishwarya, our very own bollywood beauty and Anjelina jolie have common anscestors.If a research is to be believed, all people with blue eyes can trace their ancestry back to one person who probably lived about 10,000 years ago in the Black Sea region.
Scientists studying the genetics of eye colour at the University of Copenhagen found that more than 99.5 per cent of blue-eyed people, who volunteered to have their DNA analysed, have the same tiny mutation in the gene that determines the colour of the iris.
Professor Hans Eiberg of the university said he had analysed the DNA of about 800 persons with blue eyes, ranging from fair-skinned, blond-haired Scandinavians to dark-skinned, blue-eyed people living in Turkey and Jordan.
“All of them, apart from possibly one exception, had exactly the same DNA sequence in the region of the OCA2 gene. This to me indicates very strongly that there must have been a single, common ancestor of all these people,” he said.
The study reported in the journal Human Genetics indicates that the mutation originated in just one person who became the ancestor of all subsequent people in the world with blue eyes.
“From this we can conclude that all blue-eyed individuals are linked to the same ancestor. They have all inherited the same switch at exactly the same spot in their DNA,” professor Eiberg was quoted as saying by The Independent daily of Britain today
I thought if we went back many many years ago.. all humans have common ancestors??
I had been very excited to have been given this beautiful award by my dearest friend bluedreamer, its my second one and am still flying.
