With time I have started to fall in love with this town. The small yet peaceful town,that is Ipswich. The narrow roads,the double decker buses, the town center, cineworld cinemas, ipswich town football club stadium and the surrounding alderman park...I love it all..

I think about you all the time that I feel you are with me
I see you all the while in my dreams that I feel you are made for me
I know so much about your past that I feel I was there with you since long
I am mad about you.

go back in time, for you
I wish I could
set it all right, for you
To set right your mistakes
and erase the scars
To fulfil your desires
and reach for the stars
To wipe off your tear
To drive off your fear
And for you to be with the prince
You held so dear
If I had a chance
I would give my all
To have you live
The life of your dreams

This friday, the 18th will mark my two months here in Ipswich.And already there have been some wonderful moments to take back home when my onsite assignment gets over. I have found several new friends here and have loved the time I have spent with them.
The most funny moment will definitely be the one when I went to HSBC to open my bank account.
The lady at the desk was trying to make conversation to fill up the silence while she did the necessary paper work. It went like this-
She: "Which part of India are you from?"
Me:"It is a place called Trivandrum towards the southern part of India"
She:"Is it as big a place as Ipswich?"
I almost burst out laughing.She was asking about a city 4 times the size of ipswich and 6 times as populous as it.I somehow controlled my laughter and replied "Trivandrum is a bigger city than Ipswich". Well,she didn't enquire anything more about my place and continued with her work.
May be she wouldn't have believed me since the people from the west still sees India as a place of bhookha nanga people,just as the various channels like Discovery and NGC portray.
It reminds me of the scene from Munnabhai MBBS: the chinese guy asking Circuit about where he can find "poor,hungry Indians".

As I move my mouse over the clock it reads Wednesday,January 9,2008.
So what's special?
The answer: Nothing :)
It's not like I am staying up late to write a blog.But somehow I am. Confusing? Well,even I am confused.I just want to post something I guess,especially after weeks of inactivity.Not that anyone is going to read this over here,but still somehow feel like blogging something...just key in a few words...
I am not having the access to my office blog for sometime now.I guess there would be more people reading if I post something there...
Anyone out there??????

Now that I have got the disclaimer out of my way, let me come to the point. The topic is as the title suggests – the apostrophe. I believe it must be the most misused punctuation in English language. I am tired of seeing it misused in official mails, personal mails discussion forums, blogs, TV channels and just about everywhere. Hence, I have decided to raise, well…not a tirade but at least a small voice of discontent about the same via my blog.
Friends,let's all strive to avoid the misuse of the apostrophe.
