Peace among the Urban Chaos
HE is ORNATE and CELEBRATED
from Top Of The Rock observation deck on Rockefeller Center.
Most of those yellow cabbies will be desis -its fun to drive in NYC - feels just driving back in India
Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindustani
The Tri Color (Indian Flag) amidst flags of all countries in the Rockefeller Plaza.


Boom! Boom!
Mastiyon me Jhum Jhum!
The clouds this year were a let down. This picture is from my apartment.

Veens said...

Solitaire said...

I think you might want to format this post again since the description of the pictures do not match with the pictures.

ceedy said...

@ne

Cool...you love NY & .....

ceedy said...

@veens

Honestly the way you wrote it...felt like you were kinda drunk...

ahhh, ahem,,,ohhh.......ahaaaaaaaaaaa

ceedy said...

@solitaire

Thanks for the suggestion - tried it - its beyond me...

so put up the goof up post. it works fine in IE.

ceedy said...

@rakesh

thank you...

about the freedom - well its diffiuclt to write it in a sentence...definately it is way to diiferent from back home

and its not only cultural freedom but also personal as every desicion has to be made on our own and WE pay the consequencs good or bad...without the support system like in india (this is if one is alone here)

ceedy said...

@urv

haan mere laal - mujhe pata chala formatting ke baare main

Satish Bolla said...

bhai, now am on the verge of scoring half century, if not century. let me celebrate the occasion with the british national anthem(or something like that)
folks, this is my first 50 other than my 4 or 5 centuries

Satish Bolla said...

well, the pics r good and it's nice to hear that u live on TOP. the second picture is awesome.
btw, ashu is worrying/thinking too much abt NY after looking at ur blog. try to reduce the NY content here for the sake of another blogger

Rakesh said...

i agree with u.....:)

Pri said...

these picsw are simply woww!!

sorry...its been quite a while since i visited...have been really caught up these days :(

Suma said...

very nice pics....the US of a is a place i've yet to visit, inpite of hving a sister live there and getting a visa twice to go there...:)

Romila said...

Wow! That sec pic of Saint Cathedral is just too good with those yellow cabbies clearly seen.

Fabulous pics.

Abreysham said...

OMFG! haha!
US rocks- totally!

p.s. yeh sirf waqti taur per comment tha. US itna bhi rock nahee kerta :/

ceedy said...

@satish

yeah...this time I have lost my form...so half century bhi chalega...

and I did play the british anthem :)

ceedy said...

@satish

dude only the picture of fireworks is from my place...the others are from the top of rockerfeller center in NY - its an tourist observation deck...

and about reducing the content...I think wont it be better that she misses those post...ek blogger ke liye itne sare sab miss kare...is it fair!!

ceedy said...

@rakesh

brocasarea said...

ceedy said...

@d sinner

thank you...cool you like em pics

ceedy said...

@brocasarea

hehe ;) thanks

Abreysham said...

WHAT! HE was there? OMG!
hold on a sec - are we both referring to the same entity when we say 'He'? as in 'Him- The Lord'?

If so, what was the reason for Him to come down sakshaat?

And again- why the hell were YOU the only one who knows anything about it?!

ceedy said...

@abreysham

ofcourse we are referring to HIM...

Your comments said US rocks...which was euphemistic...but HE rocked it physically with an earthquake in LA...

and about me knowing it...have you heard and read my stories on GODS INC..."I am the chosen one" :P

Abreysham said...

oops- I didn't know that- I was in a hole for the past 3 days- was a long weekend out here- I went offline completely- no connection to the world outside- my God- how self-absorbingly selfish of me :-/
hope there weren't too many damages- I'll google it and read up anyway.

re: God's Inc- man, if you rememebr- that was the *sole* reason I became a reader to your blog..

Neo, where's your Trinity? :p

ceedy said...

@abreysham

well...you only hear/do/see what you have to...so dont be sorry for that...

nothing much happened tho luckily

and yes how can I forget that you are one of the few who like that post...I have had many commentor either not commenting or simply going WTF is this :)

well its been a while - I will write something today later...on that series - hope you catch it...
(hint - with the olympics coming - more questions for HIM)

Abreysham said...

re: another episode of God's Inc- can't wait :-)

Its kinda funny/strange how I came upon your blog..one day I have to tell you that too. (ok make a vow to kill me for the suspense. I promise..one day!)

Just want to share an inscription on a magnet I have on my desk which has been a sense of support lately-
"For I know the plans I have for you: Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, Plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11

Abreysham said...

I meant to say DONT make a vow.
Also- ask Him if He thinks I'm finally warming up to Him? coz I think I am, kinda.

ceedy said...

@abreysham

ok kewl...and dont tell me let it be a suspense for a while...

I am now as a dedication on friendship day...will include you somehow in the next GOD's INC post...so then you can tell me - k

that a kewl magnet...

and remember if you need "real" plans to make a house - after you have PROSPERED AND NOT HARMED AND BEEN HOPEFUL AND HAVE A STABLE FUTURE...call me - am an architect :)

ceedy said...

Thanks for helping me with your charecter...now you have a treat..next post of GODS INC

Abreysham said...

:)) at the neat juxtaposition of my inscription with your reply!

I hope by the time your post comes I havent fallen into the deep end of the abyss again.

me having a reference in God's Inc- neat :D

ceedy said...

yup that the LIGHT...

and dont worry wherever you are in whatever abyss I will make sure you surface with a smile

Satish Bolla said...

lagta hain ki last few scraps mein kuch chatting watting chal raha hain!!!! mein bhi aaun, kya?

ceedy said...

@ satish

aa jao...

abreysham is from dubai...tere baju main hai...aur woh mera silent follower hai...

btw

you are missing a double ton on saaanp ceedy...did you get that msg of mine?

Deepali said...
