Five years of rambling......

This day..... a few years ago......
A Backbencher thought of rambling sitting in a corner ..............

And......................
After Mumbai was attacked....... after India won a Cricket world cup, after Osama Bin Laden was shot dead...........

After a lot of scams and chaos, after Anna hazare declared his war on corruption...........

After five monsoons, and five summers....... after Obama entered the White House...... and after Benazir Butto was killed..........

After 3 Idiots broke all the India movie records....... and after Avatar changed the way the world watched movies.....

After M F Hussain painfully surrendered the Indian citizenship...... after Sachin scored a double ton in a one day match......... and after Bhimsen Joshi died............

After the Ayodhya land was cut into three pieces by a court.......... and after the Sathya Sai Baba left his mortal body.........

After the Indian flag landed on the Moon........... and after the Chandrayan found water on moon with a NASA equipment.........

After the Oracle gobbled up the Sun Microsystems..... and after the android phones hit the market........... after 2G..... 3G and then the 4G...........

After the stars from Elizabeth Taylor to Rajkumar and Vishnuvardhan left us with a void.....

After Star Plus finally stopped the sobbing serials........

After the Dalai Lama desired to resign from exile politics....... and after the LTTE was routed.......

After the Nepal became a confused democracy....... and after the people uprising in the middle-east........

After Mubarak was ousted.......... and after Saddam Hussein got executed.....

After the IPL was launched........... and after Bangalore got its International Airport..........

After the dish tvs protruded the rural Indian homes....... and after Michael Jackson left Neverland and the world in a shocking way..........

After A R Rahman stood up to the world challenge to win two Academy awards...........

After Lee-Hesh went on a rampage, winning all that they played...... and then parted ways..... and then came back together......... And after the facebook became a way of life......

After the island volcano Eyjafjöll awakened to stand the European airspace to a still...... and after a Royal wedding left the British in a frenzy....

After the cheapest car Tata Nano became a reality............. and After the Tsunami destroyed Japan........

After China topped the Olympic medal table........ and After the Midnight's Children became the booker of Bookers.....

And....

After conquering the mighty Himalayas, the wonderful Sahyadris.... and the challenging Nilgiris.....

After a lot of traveling and a lot of new learning....... and after meeting a lot of new people.........

After riding thru from the East Coast to the West Coast......

After changing my marital status on my facebook account.....

Here I am - declaring that the last five years have been phenomenal, in every way possible!!

Thanks for reading me through :)
