The Will of The Lonely Traveller

Hello friends.

Rosh here. I have just some time back found the Last Will of The Lonely Traveller. I thought I should post it here for all his other friends to read it.


I, The Lonely Traveller, residing at Blogger.com, declare this to be my Will, and I revoke any and all wills and codicils I previously made.

I leave my all to my dear friend, Rosh. He has to fill in to my blogging shoes. I have registered a place for him @ Blogger as well as on Wordpress.

My dear Blog Pals, I have passed the baton over to Rosh and have appointed him as my successor. I humbly beseech you all to give the same love an affection to him as you have given me.

Please do keep visiting Rosh @
http://lifewithninu.blogspot.com/ or http://roshabraham.blogsome.com/.

And, Rosh, I implore you to write a Eulogy for me.

The attached will was signed by The Lonely Traveller, the testator named in the will, on the 6th day of October, 2007, at the law offices of BlogSopt, Blogsphere.

When he signed the will, The Lonely Traveller declared the instrument to be his last will.

The Lonely Traveller was, at the time of executing this will, over the age of fifteen months and, in our opinions, of sound mind, memory and understanding and not under any restraint or in any respect incompetent to make a will.

Signed: Witness 1 --------- Witness 2 --------- Testator

The Lonely Traveller(TLT), prominent blogger on BlogSpot, died on Sat, 6th of October '07 from complications of losing his 'Lonely' title. He was fifteen months old. Soft spoken, cheerful and friendly, TLT never looked the part of a hopeless romantic.
But in the final days of his life, he revealed an unknown side of his psyche.
This hidden quasi-Jungian persona, surfaced during the pursuit for his soul mate, a woman who he only spent a few precious hours, on the phone, with.... a woman who he had only seen through his webcam.
The protracted search ended Saturday afternoon in total success. There was not even a single minute during the one and a half hour long marriage ceremony, when TLT thought that his Lonely status was about to expire. Later that evening when he thought about his beloved blog, http://accounts-of-the-lonely-traveller.blogspot.com/, he realized that the time had come to let go.
Yet even in certain loss the courageous TLT secretly clung to the belief that life is not merely a series of meaningless accidents or coincidences. But rather, it is a tapestry of meaningful events that culminate an exquisite, sublime plan laid out by God.
Asked about the loss of his dear friend, Roshan Abraham, the executive editor of the blogs http://lifewithninu.wordpress.com/ & http://lifewithninu.blogspot.com/, described TLT as a changed man in the last days of his life.
"Things were clearer for him. He wanted to renounce his title." Roshan noted.

Ultimately, Roshan concluded that if we are to live life in harmony with the universe, we must all possess a powerful faith in what the ancients used to call "fatum," what we currently refer to as destiny. Each one of us are destined to <......something......> and this 'something' is set by God.

And they said.....

It's been really long since I last updated my blog.
As you all would be aware by now, TLT has found someone to dismiss his lonliness. The Lonely Traveller doesn't have to be lonely any more. He has found a companion so sweet, so caring, so loving, so beautiful, and so much of everything wonderful!!!
She has transformed his ordinary life into something so beautiful. Such beauty was never there before he met her. With her, he has found new meaning to his life.
He has found renewed joy in each moment that life now brings. He finds comfort and trust in their love and closeness. And he is ever thankful to Our Lord, Jesus Christ, to have blessed him with such a wonderful companion.

As a tribute to their love, I break my silence on my blog by posting what they had to say about each other.

He said.....

Something wonderful! :-)

She said.....

Something even more wonderful! :-)

Plz Note: The above content has been edited by 'You know who' :D

Finaly things have settled down and the dates have been decided. October 6th it is, when I wed Ninu.
Friends I shall post the invite soon. In case you are unable to make it to our wedding (which I hope is not the case), please do remember us in your prayers.

God bless us all.

Not so lonely traveller! :-)

Phew! It's been over a month since my last post. Can you believe that?

So I guess it is time for updates. Here they are...

1> TLT's super parents have decided to get him hitched.
2> If this happens, and it might happen very soon, he is contemplating changing his nickname.
3> He thinks 'Mr. Traveller' would be cool!
4> Futher the blogname might change to Accounts of Mr. and Mrs. Traveller :-D
5> Work life is ok. Nothing too great!
6> He will hopefully will be back in India by August end.

That's all for now.

BTW, I forgot to mention that TLT had an splendid day today. He had this amazing 2 hr conversation with 'You know who' :-D. Later he spoke to couple of close buddies regarding the new happenings.

Then, in the evening, TLT visited the 'Lutheran Church of Hope' for worship in the evening.
It was a beautiful praise and worship service. Over 200 people sitting in front of the altar and singing praises to our loving Jesus was quite a sight.
During the course of announcements it was make public that the new worship arena will be completed rather soon and that it shall easily seat 2500 people.
Isn't that great?

Have a brilliant day friends!
And may God bless us all.

Work - FUN - Work

Hello friends.
Back from Niagara and it's time to update my blog ;-)
So here it goes...

After 3 full days of FUN, we returned back from Niagara today early morning. It was an awesome trip. The weather was not on our side, with most part of the 3 days being threatened by rain.

Day 1:

Our first stop was Cleaveland which is a good 10 hours drive from Des Moines.
Try as it did, the gloomy atmostphere did not dampen our spitits.
We braved the thunderstorm and enjoyed the thunderous rides of
Cedar Point, Cleaveland.

At 5 in the evening we left Cleaveland and drove for another 4 hours till we reached our hotel at Buffalo, New York. On the way, all I could think was the number of rides that I missed because of the lack of time. I sooooo wish the day were longer. Red carpet Inn was a small but a comfortable room, enough to give us all a sweet night's sleep.

Day 2:

Woke up in the morning and travelled another 30 miles till we reached
Niagara State Park. The park was really beautiful and so were the falls. The place was swamped by Desis who were as usual looking for FUN ;-) (Just like us!!!)
At night the Falls were brilliantly lit up and then we were made spectators to an excellent display of fireworks.
You may want to check out the video that I uploaded to YouTube. :-D

Day 3:

On our way back to Des Moines, we stopped over at Presque Isle and had a ride on Captain Norman's speedboat. The bay was really beautiful.

The weekend was really awesome and I was lucky to have good friends for company. The FUN is over and now I am back to what I do usually..... WORK!

Stay happy you guys!
Have FUN.

Musafir hoon yaaron...

Hi friends.

I would be visiting Niagara falls this weekend. We plan to drive from Des Moines to Buffalo Niagara. It's a 13 hour drive and we have one major pitstop; Cleaveland.
We are in a dilemma now. Some well-informed friends have adviced us to spend at least a day in Cleaveland. The problem is that we have only 3 days - Saturday through Monday. Subtract from that 26-30 hours, the time that we would be on road, and we are left with just about 2 days. Less 20 hours of sleep and we have just 24 hours worth of sight-seeing time.
Anyways, I hope that I enjoy this trip. I am really looking forward for the weekend.
Wish me luck.


P.S> My folks back home want me to get hitched ASAP. So I hope I can enjoy my bachelorhood while it lasts! God Bless Me :-)

"Salam Aleikum

I am pleased to introduce a business opportunity to transfer to your overseas account the sum of (10.5M USD)Ten million five hundred thousand United States Dollars from one of the Prime Banks here in Dakar Senegal.
I am Mr Desmond Koffi (Bsc,Msc) the Auditor General of one of the prime banks here in Dakar Senegal , during the course of our auditing , I discovered a floating funds in an account opened in our bank since 1982 and till date no body has operated on the account and after going through old files in the records, I discovered that the owner of the account died long ago in a plane crash along with his family without leaving a[Heir/WILL], hence the floating of the funds and if I do not remit this money out urgently it will be forfeited for nothing. The owner of the account was a foreigner , Engr.Sam .A. Taha, an estate consultant .
Therefore, with a personal conviction of trust and confidence, I wish to contact you as a foreigner, to stand as a relative, thus I can work out the release of the funds , No other person in the office knows about the account, please be assured of the risk free, I'm the one that will work it out , all I need is your cooperation.
At the conclusion of this project , I propose a joint investment of an equal partnership to you or we may share it in a ratio of 45% for you and 55% for me. One more thing please; I beg you don't consider this against moral justification , they are many other aspects of life we may contribute with this funds to help the less privileged and the needy in a society than having it shared as an unclaimed bill among Government PLEASE .
I look forward to your earliest response.
Yours Truly
