Wow!! The feeling is just beyond human abilities to define it in their language. Maybe the closest is mirthful, just close. For those of us who tried it, we have a clean satisfaction in our minds, "Yes!! I did it again!!! And yes, it works, all the time...".

I'm talking about 'FREEZING YOUR HARD DRIVES'. Way back in school, I used to tell a few friends that freezing the drive brings it back to life. The smarter ones just tried it and shared that joyous feeling with me. The cowards sang all the same stories, "..but my dad", "oh!! I've never opened it before"(there's always a first time bozo!!), even worse, "dude, I don't think it really works!!".

Well, guys, its been done again and again and again. My brother Nikhilesh brought back a 7 year old to life, again after a recent crash. And this morning, I heard the familiar click again that said, "time to be FROZEN". And so, I wrap it up and throw it back into the freezer for coming back to life.

I'm ending this post here and the only feeling I have within me now is 'overflowing joy and satisfaction' (its like the froth that comes out of hot coffee and slides down the walls of the coffee mug... flowing and flowing and flowing... boy!!!)

I had to see it to believe it... The guy who's hitting hard (2nd from top) and finished first, they tell me that was me. Now, was it??

Looking beyond the embers of bridges glowing behind us
To a glimpse of how green it was on the other side
Steps taken forwards but sleepwalking back again
Dragged by force of some inner tide

At a higher altitude with flag unfurled
We reached the dizzy heights of that dreamed of world

Encumbered forever by desire and ambition
There's a hunger still unsatisfied
Our weary eyes still stray to the horizon
Though down this road we've been so many times

The grass was greener
The light was brighter
The taste was sweeter
The nights of wonder
With friends surrounded
The dawn mist growing
The water flowing
The endless river

Forever and ever

And touch. Maybe it was a part of me. Whatever, hail the best man!!!
