Exchange Rate Dilemma

Hi guys... now i am writing about something financial....Exchange rate.. the financial term each expatriate look after everyday.As an expatriate living in Dubai i am in a dilemma ... how to feel about this variation in exchange rate. On the first thought it is better for us if the exchange rate is high and we can get more Indian rupee while we exchange UAE dirhams.Actually whats happening is the value of the rupee is diminishing when market is down,i am an Indian and all of my investments in Indian markets so whenever the market is down me only get diminishing returns to our investments.And moreover.. the growth rate and the image of my country is also diminishing while market is down.
This is my problem how to feel at par with market fluctuations?Can i long for more exchange rate then my home country is down and my investments are down.Can i long for less exchange rate then my income is reducing considerably.Ha ha ha great thought right?? Actually i know there is no solution..... be in present and happy about everything thats what i want to do..

I viewed Aamir khan's 3 IDIOTS yesterday,its a wonderful film.Its theme is self actualization and give us the message that everybody needs to follow their dreams success will come in their way.We know lot of people around us in wrong careers especially professionals engineers, doctors etc...they came to wrong career for fulfilling their parents desire.But nobody asked them what to become,their inner desire is different but they only followed their parents dream to become a professional....So they are struggling to find happiness in their profession.If they choose their desired career their story will be different.

So please don't hammer your children with your dreams, they have their own dreams to follow,please allow that.ALL IS WELL...

Indian Christmas

These are some thought provoking Indian Christmas images.


Christmas Night

Iam not a Christian even then iam feeling to celebrate Christmas night here in Dubai today.But unfortunately i am in late shift and need some time to go out.My family is not here with me now (went India before 2 days)so iam planning to go with my friends here.
In my indian days i celebrated Christmas with my Christian friends namely bineesh,paradeep abraham,shiju etc in their home in payyampalli with lot of beer.From the evening itself we started to eat good spicy food(especially beef) prepared by their parents, drink lot of beer and in the night we joined the carol party from church and on the early morning we went to church and listened priest's boring Christmas speech .....ha ha ha feeling nostalgic.
I don't know what is in store for me today ......happy Christmas wishes to all.

Fresh Thought

This is a neutral period i think. No fresh thought.Life is moving only.But you know this is very difficult for me to live without fresh thinking.I need something to hang around..searching deliberately now....

Kerala Traditional Food

Here i am having my breakfast in my flat in Dubai....the food is Kerala traditional food puttum kadalayum.Actually it is not prepared in my home, its ordered from nearby Kerala hotel.Actually Dubai malayalee expats are privileged i think..lot of Kerala restaurant chains are here so we can have Kerala food anytime..What you like most in Kerala food category??? Its a difficult question to answer right..yea i know about me its easy to say what me don't like rather than i like...i don't like ??? ha ha ha thinking.....nothing.....every item have its own taste....

AVATAR movie

Before 2 days i was in PANDORA...little confused?? hey..i just try to write something about james camaroons new movie AVATAR.I watched it in grand cinema sahara...It was a great feast to watch...The movie tells the story of great struggle of natives (not human.. called as navis)in pandora the distant moon to survive and their relation with nature.Its truly amazing yaar..the making..I watched it in ordinary screen not in IMAX(3D)even then i felt wondered.Its worth to see.

Enjoy Pressure

hey...u guys worked in a construction company before...
The scenes are quite typical i think everywhere..pressure pressure pressure thats the only mantra.
I am sitting here in my table typing this but i am watching the people around me...actually its too funny..ha ha ha..
Its the handover time here at 5pm.Engineers are making the report and agents are making it right project managers are evaluating everything ho hoooooooooot...
Actually we are quite behind the schedule and lot of other subcontractors are waiting outside to start their work.Thats the pressure and upper management wants people to work at their maximum efficiency and threatening everybody by the sword of termination.....ha ha ha enjoy pressure thats the only solution.
