  1. every thought is an idiosyncrasy.
    every idiosyncrasy is not a thought.
    any thought that shakes you out of
    your complacency is indeed a thought.
    it is given but to the great.

  2. Hi suchitra- your blogs are so inspiiring I keep coming back to check. Though I

  6. Of all the quotes yours is my choice too. As Vidhi has confessed, I also don’t understand a bit about ‘Rajanikant versus’ one. Some clue would be welcome.

  7. Hey loved your quotes suchitra! Some of them were really witty. I really like your blog and how it looks and all, and I love your sense of style. Maybe you could share with us some tips for winter clothing in your next post? And speaking of winter, most of us, I’m sure, love the cold and dressing up and feeling all warm. Especially warm hugs, I love them. But a lot of people in our country will face death in the cold as they do not have adequate clothing at all. Pantaloons and an NGO, called Goonj, has started a clothing donation drive known as Joy Exchange, and all anyone with old clothes has to do is just drop them off at any pantaloons outlet. This is an awesome chance to help those in need. For more info you guys can watch this, it’s pretty funny too – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SNdJMbRiMoQ&noredirect=1
