DELIRIUM DIVE!   
May,08,2009
 

Hello folks. Have been away for around a month, which is about the half way mark of my holiday, and I was missing y’all so a quick hello.

Guys, those of you who have the resources and ability to try out skiing please do so, it is absolutely one of the best things I have done in a long time. Thanks to my persistent kids I ended up committing to a week of skiing, and boy am I glad I did. We were in Banff, a popular ski resort in Canada, a very warm and friendly place and great for skiing. Lovely slopes, very good facilities and great instructors. My kids have been there twice before, first time for me. I had a great instructor, Glen, who had me doing ‘black’ slopes on day 4!!!

You have the ‘bunny’ slope for total beginners, then the ‘green’ slopes which are easy, ‘blue’ slopes which are intermediate level, ‘black’ which are difficult, and then this one slope/cliff called the ‘delirium dive’ which is for people with suicidal tendencies.

So black in 4 days as you might have figured by now is quite impressive. Well what can I say….

But seriously folks please try skiing if you can. It is one of the most challenging and exhilarating sports. Pure delirium as you rush down cutting through the ice cold air in the middle of the most stunning natural beauty, the feeling of adventure as you go down slopes which test your courage, and above all the humility you feel as you untangle your various limbs and skis trying to get back on your feet after a fall.

Speaking of humbling experiences I remember many years back I went to Disneyland with my kids when they were quite small. There roaming about in the theme parks were the characters of Mickey Mouse and Minny Mouse, with loads of children queuing up with their respective parents for an autograph and a photo with their favorite cartoon character. My kids went nuts and insisted on a photo and autograph with them. So here I was, big superstar, standing quietly in line waiting for Mickey Mouse to give me an autograph for my children. And as I was mouthing the lines that I hear everyday - “Hi, my kids are big fans, can we have a picture please?” – I was thinking to myself what fun if the person behind the Mickey Mouse costume is a desi!!!

Well, once again my kids and I were in Orlando visiting the various theme parks. This time thankfully my kids have grown older so I was spared the humbling experience. One per trip is enough.

So skiing, then roller coaster rides, theme rides, water parks, and then a week in Bristol spent recovering from the skiing and theme parks. Very close friends of ours live in Bristol and they have just given birth to a pair of beautiful twin girls.

And of course my whirlwind trip to Berlin where I was most happy, no thrilled, to see some of the blog gang. I was so wishing I had more time to spend with those of you who were there. Really, it was too short the trip. But it was also something quite sudden and unplanned. Being such a huge fan of Audrey Hepburn I just had to accept the invitation and I am so happy I did. Got to meet all my fans in Berlin, especially the bloggers. Thanks for being there guys. Much love.

So having a great time so far and thoroughly enjoying myself and my children. Today also being Ira's birthday so let me get back to her.

Cheers.

Hi Aamir,

my name is Nour from Egypt, really hope that you get to read this. 3 month ago a friend of mine who is a fan of Indian movies urged me to watch TZP, i have to tell you that the last time i watched an indian movie i was like 10 years old back when Amitab Batchaan was the one and only face of idian cinema and i told her it totally grew out this phase of my life. This is how prejudice i was. And the i thought i'd give it a try just 2 get rid of her nagging. The minute i saw darsheel's face reflected into the water in the very first shot i fell in love with him, he captured my heart. It's a very very warm, heart felt, informative, eye opening and universal movie i have to say. Any one could relate to it be it a parent, a teacher or whoever. I can go on and on talking about it but to cut it short , God Bliss you for doing it :)

hey Aamir,

This is Anki..not to mention a big fan of yours. I googled delirium drive and found a 18 secs video on you tube (delirium drive entrance)...it just made me sound "oh my god". I love adventurous stuffs and it seems worth to try...

You know I learnt something from your blogs...I see you reply to fans besides writing blogs and in this world where ppl dont have time to keep in touch with their families you are in touch with a huge family of your fans...

hats off Aamir..i really appreciate your efforts..you rocked :)
do take care..

-------

Dont expect others to be like you, Because life becomes rally boring when you have two live only with your shadows. Respect the uniqueness in every human.

--------

To believe in something in which everyone believe is belief

But to believe in something in which nobody believes is confidence

-----

Costly lines in my concern

It's better to lsoe your ego to the one you love

Than to lose the one you love because of ego

----------------

Best of Affection doesnt come when we are together, it comes when we are apart and realise that despite the distance a silent relationship still survives

This is a name of relationship I have given between Aamir and me

-----------

Sometimes You have to run away from all..
Not just to create distance...
But .... Also to see who cares enough to run behind you....

FEW QUOTE OF THE DAY

People say that u didnt know waht you have until you lose it, But it is not like that.

You always know what you you have yo just never though you would loose it..

---------

Speaking without egos,
Loving without intentions,
Caring without expectations,
Praying without selfishness.

Its the sign of true relation.

----------

Difficulties in your life doesnt come to destroy you but to help you realise your hidden potential. let difficulties know that you are more difficult.

Have a nice day and life..


--------------

Believe in yourself today and soon the world will start believing in you tomorrow.

-------------

Thought for Love

It is meaningless in expecting your partner to be of your kind, because you cant hold their right hand in your right hand to walk together
