The First (official?!) Post here…


Thank you everyone for having the patience and sharing the excitement as we created our site exactly as we wanted it…

You will see that the links on the top don’t work yet, some graphics may be slightly out of place, but we don’t want to hold out any longer… Things will get polished and start to work the way they are supposed to in a few days/weeks as we put more and more of the site together… i had no idea getting a site up would be so much of work 🙂 but the main section is done… and now ready to be viewed…

Prasanth & Rupal

Rupal did the designing… and its absolutely brilliant! We fought for hours about which colours go where and how it should look … but even she is happy with the result 🙂

Prasanth did the programming… hours and hours of it… nudging things into place with infinite patience… not complaining even once when i would change something he had spent 2 hours on 🙂

He convinced me to move to WordPress from Blogger and i must say i am glad i did it. For the Look and feel i had in mind, blogger simply couldn’t cut it with the way it is now… WordPress is a PAIN to set up, but once its up and running its an absolute pleasure to use…

Dinesh and i are really, really proud of this site (its become so much more than just a blog) that so many people have helped create… Shibani started the whole thing off by giving me my own website on my birthday 2 years ago…

The Amazon shop has got my favourite movies and board games up for now… MUCH more will be added soon…

It has been quite a race against time to get here :)… its almost 6:00 am, and i am going to sleep, will add a few posts when i wake up…

Please comment and tell me how you like it! 🙂

Welcome once again…

Jai Gurudeva!

    Way Cool !!! Rupa and Prashant – you are divinely talented. I guess this no longer allows us to post using our blogger identities since this is on word press . For one thing I am happy for no-ads…unless you’ve cooked up a devious way of getting that in 🙂

    Luhhvly,dreamy,springy,poetic,musical – kudos to Rupal & Prashanth as i know that it is indeed a race against time when people work with you Bau – when someone asks you “when would you like to see this”?

    it looks good,awesome,sexy:),and word you can think of just add on Bawa & dinesh
    bawa birthday wish (HMMMMMMM to treat jaideep with his delicious delicacies put up on blog):)

  21. parth says:

    JGD bau, really nice page you have made but i dont know that this screen resolution …!
    like the size of the page is too big and it doesnt fit with screen so i had to scroll horizontal actually if yo see sites like http;// or gmail where you will see that screen is automatically audjested by the screen resolution, i am sure your developers able to do it…!

    Else i like the Horizontal line of the web page which gives look of Notebook.i must say everything is in Ship shape.
    Bau cant we reduce the size of icons so that it will get fit into the 1 page so nobody has to scroll .

  30. Antariksh says:

    The site looks amazing, but it doesnt fit into one screen shot even with the screen resolution of 1280×1024. Maybe only on bawa’s apple computer screen it can be seen properly.

  31. Abhay says:

    absolutely brilliant! great teamwork and very good outlook, theme.

  32. Manish says:

    WaaaaaoooooW!!!! 😮 😀 (Staring wide eyed, amazed, amused… :D)

    Nothing more to say… That one word should say it all..!!!
    Except that the number of butterflies used to decorate the blog title drops a subtle yet obvious hint that “Rupal” did it..!!!(Girls will be girls after all…Alas! Sigh..!! 😛 :D)

    Dear Bau!!!

    Happy Birthday!!!!

    From ???

  62. nimisha says:

    dear bawa,

    i have one question for prashanth – is it possible to fit the width in one page when we open the blog? it might be more user friendly if scrolling is required just vertically and not both ways.. jgd! nimisha

  63. Amanda says:

    Bawa! It looks amazing…Rupal, you did a great job. How come its so big? When I open the site I can’t see the whole page at once. I have to scroll horizontally as well as vertically……

  64. Radha says:

    Jai Gurudev!!!

    Beautiful website with a nice photo and flowers 🙂

  65. Amarja says:


    It’s been a while i visited your blog. This website simply doubles my joy of a much awaited read. AMAZING website Bau, I like the simple and visually appealing metaphors the most. Some of the things i absolutely adore in this website are – the aesthetic arrangement of the sections, pnemonics rather than bullets, the photo display at the bottom of the page and more importantly balancing white with the color…hmmm, and yes!…The flowers and butterfly frame…Its simply a masterpiece. Do tell Rupal, she’s the best.

    Just curious, how do you always find time to excel in everything you do? 🙂

    All the while i browsed, i was like a kid infront of a huge ice cream counter! 🙂

  66. Ajit says:

    Prashant and Rupal…

    U did a wonderful Job..
    very creative work…
    the backgound… full of flowers….. and the side menu with those fun pics… wow…
    Fresh looking site….

    And the choice of Guruji`s picture is also wonderfull.. full of love…

    Idea of flashing pictures is really very exciting one… it will be very nice if manu more pics get added in that..:).. already i have saved all of them…..

    Once again… Great work guys..
    Loved it..

  67. Jeet says:

    Ur blog is most addictive… First thing I do when am online is check ur blog (now website) for new posts. Feel very disappointed when I’ve read all posts and no new ones to read!
    The new design is too good Bau, superb designing by Rupal and amazing work by Prashanth. I loved the photographs in the footer(from our album), side bar with topic list, the icons and the template. Except for its big for screen its too good Bau! 🙂

  68. Prakirtee says:

    Hey dearest Bawa your site is fabulous 🙂 you’ve got such incredible taste!! I’m impressed.. once again 🙂 and hats off to Rupal for such excellent designing! And oh yaa the pictures are real gems!!! love them, specially in the footer.

  69. Gauri says:

  70. Suniti says:

    This is simply terrific! Rupal and Prashant have done such a brillient work,
    Congratulations!! Bau and Dinesh, you are the BESTEST….love you loads!
