[IF]

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you
But make allowance for their doubting too,
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise:
If you can dream--and not make dreams your master,
If you can think--and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools:

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it all on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breath a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: "Hold on!"

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with kings--nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you;
If all men count with you, but none too much,
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And--which is more--you'll be a Man, my son!

While the memories of my US trip are drifting away... I'm on a new road towards my destiny... After having bought a dream for myself and enjoying life as it goes on with the up n downs... thats wht keeps me going... learning a lot of lessons... trying to connect back to people from my childhood days and remember the person that i was and always wanted to be... really invigorates my mind with a renewed sense of freshness...

With all this on my mind I find a new zeal in doing things in a new way... speaking to people ... learning from their experiences.... understanding how I should move ahead with my life. A splurge of realizations on my mind makes me understand of my weaknesses and work on correcting them. Satisfying...

Making new friends can be fun ... I'm having fun too... meeting people from different backgrounds .... understanding how people think... how different opinions one can have from another... Now all this is just fine as long as you don't mess up a wonderful friendship for some trivial reason. And then changing yourself to make certain things work can be for good. Doesn't really mean you become a different person or anything, but you do things in a differernt way and eliminate those that don't do good in anyway, but just got into them just along the way, thinking that everyone does this stuff... and later realize that this stuff isn't for me... why am I doing stuff like this? Haven't I my own individuality? Ofcourse I've always been someone with a mind of my own and this is fine as long as I don't hurt someone or do something in the process of being head strong.

Life's just going on ...

Feels great towards the end of my stay at Boston. The week just went by and I have a fantastic time tasting different kinds of food, meeting people, doing work, seeing around Boston ... Just to summarize the events, we went out into Boston downtown to see the Prudential tower, went to Harvard ( I plan to go there again tomorrow and check out the museums. ), tasted cuisines like Italian, American, Thai, Mexican and colonial.

The weather has been such a sport except for Sunday when it snowed slightly. Today is so cool and sunny that it almost seems like spring. Most locals are so surprised at having this kind of a weather in January, they say its 'uncommon'.

Meeting up with our previous project team from Progress Nashua was such a great experience. We had a really great time. We met up at a restraunt called On the border, which is on the border between Nashua and Bedford, in New Hampshire.

Still have to check out some shopping places and maybe do more in Washington DC once I'm there. Tomorrow is the Progress party and after that I'll fly out of Boston and into DC.... Let's see how things go from here on.
