दीपावली जाने कब से बस दिवाली हो गयी
पहले जैसी खुशियों से अब खाली हो गयी
कभी था ये रिश्तो के साथ का त्यौहार निराला
अब तो बस एक रस्म ये निराली हो गयी !!!

I am all excited to watch much awaited SRK starer Ra.One. And I am feeling bad about being unable to watch it on the release date. Being a huge SRK fan, I wanted to watch the movie on the very first day, i.e., Diwali but I am going home in Diwali holidays and that’s why will have to postpone my plan for another 5 days… 😦

But going home and enjoying the grand festival is much more important & fun as its once in a year affair while I can come back and watch the movie later… True that I will miss the adventure of watching it fresh before much reviews and ratings but its ok. No other choice. Well, the reviews don’t matter much to me for this movie as whatever they say, I am going to watch this one for sure.. 🙂

However, reviews have started coming in from Dubai after its worldwide premiere there and reviewers are all praises for it. Here is a link to the very first review of the movie.

So, go ahead and enjoy the movie, have fun on Diwali with family and friends and be safe and happy!!!

And yes, one more exciting thing is that I have got Chetan Bhagat’s  new novel – Revolution 2020 and have just started reading it.. Lets see how I like it….

Happy Diwali friends 🙂 🙂


Today, I stumbled upon a blog post titled Bangles and suddenly got reminded of my love for bangles when I was a child.

Yes, when I was around 10-12 years old, I loved to wear bangles.. I have never been into putting on lot of make up, applying different cosmetics & adorning jewellery etc… but one thing I was crazy about was wearing bangles. Yes, I had a small box which contained so many colorful bangles matching with each of my dresses.

I still remember, every time I used to get a new dress my mummy used to get me matching bangles too. I used to keep that box with lot of care and it was one of my proud possessions during my childhood. I still remember how it looked like. 🙂

But, as the time passed by and I grew up, I got to believe that wearing bangles is not so cool and kinda old-fashioned… I learnt it from my friends with latest fashion sense and as I was a self-conscious and sensitive to public opinion girl, I refused to wear bangles anymore… and that bangle box became a useless commodity in my drawer… I used to take it out sometimes, look at all the beautiful bangles, try them out and then again keep it at its place. After some time, I got used to with not wearing bangles and forgot about that box too. Mummy seeing my disinterest in wearing those, gave those bangles along with the box to our maid’s daughter. I didn’t mind it as wearing bangles didn’t match with latest fashion trend.

After that I have worn bangles only  few times when I got dressed up in a saree or lahanga… & other times I wear fancy wristbands, bracelets and watches.. which are trendy and cooool…!!! But its good that bangles are again in fashion… 🙂

P.S. I am feeling nostalgic about those days and missing that sweetness I had as a small girl..

P.P.S. I am still the same as I was but yes, appearance can be deceptive…. 😉

Left her alone sobbing..


He took lighter out of his pocket, lighted the cigarette and started enjoying the smoke… he was going away from the worldly tensions, feeling good about himself. While inhaling smoke it felt like he is exhaling all the worries & insecurity out and sucking all the confidence in.

The smokey illusion blurred his vision to be able to see the burning of his parents hearts and the deepening hole on his wife’s soul because of her helplessness to stop him from this slow suicide…

He carried on smoking &……… left her alone for lifetime sobbing…. !!!


Kaafi intezaar ke baad, aaj thand ne dastak dena shuru kiya hai. Humidity aur garmi se pareshan logo ko aaj thand ki aahat sunayi di hai, haan pyari si gulabi si thand aa gayi hai…

Mujhe to thand ka mausam hamesha hi achcha lagta aaya hai. Aisa nahi hai ki mujhe barish aur garmi ka mausam pasand nahi. Pasand to wo bhi hain par thand ka mausam kuch jyada pasand hai. Aur phir is mausam me achcha bahut kuch hai aur bura kuch jyada nahi jaise barish achchi to lagti hai par uske baad ka keechad na baba na… aur garmi me aam, tarbuj khana to achcha hai par garami se jab paseene chhootne lagte hain uska kya?? Aur to aur din ke samay kahi nikalana tak dubhar ho jata hai garami me to.

Main to khaane ki bahut shaukeen hoon aur thand mast khane peene ka seaon hai. Aur sabse badi baat, mere sare favorite fruits isi season me milte hain jaise Sitaphal (Cusrtad Apple), Singhade (Water chestnut) aur Amrud (Guava). Haan, sach me singhade aur sitaphal ka to maja hi kuch aur hai. Mujhe yaad hai jab bhi main ghar jati thi thand ke mausam me papa bina kahe hi dher sare singhade aur sitaphal le aate the. Aur aaj bhi yahi hota hai.

Iske alawa meri pasandida sabjiya jaise matar aur gajar bhi thand me aati hain. Aaaha.. soch ke hi muh me pani aa jata hai… matar se to har sabji ka taste hi duguna ho jata hai… 🙂 Wo matar ki sabji me parathe chur chur kar khana.. wah!!!

Phir makai ki roti, bajare ka khichada, gehu ka khichada, makai ke dhokle aur urad ki daal, thand ke laddoo, til ke papad aur laddoo, shakarkand (Sweet Potato), ratalu, garadu(Yam) yum yumm…  kitna kuch tasty-tasty sa khana thand se juda hai…

You know yahi ek mausam hai jab mujhe hostel me rahna sabse jyada bura lagata tha.. mujhe yaad hai main apani room mate ko kitna pareshan kar diya karti thi in sab cheejo ki baate karke aur ye kah-2 ke ki mujhe ye khana hai wo khana hai… aur hostel me to ye sab mil pana namumkin tha… jab nayi-2 aayi thi ghar se bahar rahne tab bahut yaad aati thi in sab cheejo ki…

Bachpan me dadaji thand ke dino me dry fruits aur pind khajur laya karte the aur hum bachche usi lalach me unke aas pass ghooma karte the. Aate to aaj bhi hai ye sab but ab wo pahle jaisi baat nahi hai… Jaise-2 hum bade hote jate hain, cheeze chhoti hoti jati hai hamare liye…

Aur haan ek aur cheej jo thand se judi hai aur mujhe bahut pasand hai wo hai chyawanprash. Roj raat ko chyawanprash khakar bournvita wala dhoodh peena bhi thand se judi yaado me se ek hai.

Aur phir wo rajai me dubak kar sona, subah aalas karte huye baar-2 rajai ko aur tight odh kar soye rahna, mummy ka awaaz lagate rahna aur phir haarkar bed tea la dena taki chai ke liye to main uth hi jau… ha ha ha…

Wo school me baat karte samay muh se nikalati bhaap, thand se akade huye haath jo jeb se bahar hi na aana chahe, bathroom me baith ke paani ki bucket ko dekhte rahna jaise ki shayad hamare dekhne se pani apne aap garam ho jayega… Dadi ke sath chhat pe dhoop me baithna aur dhero baate karna, December-January me patange udana, gilli danda khelna ye sab bahut hi pyari si yaade hain.. jo bachpan ke thand ke dino se jusi hain.

Haan, mujhe patang udana bahut pasand tha… garmiyo me hamari pocket money comics pe kharch hua katrti thi aur thand me patango pe. Main aur meri ek friend school ke baad din din bhar patange udaya karte the.. udana to aata nahi tha so udate to kam, phadte jyada the… par phir udate-2 aakhir seekh hi gaye the hum dono patang udana.. aur aaj sochti hu to achcha lagta hai ki mummy – papa ne kabhi is sab masti ke liye roka toka nahi… warna ye maja chhoot gaya hota humse. Ab to patange hi bahut kam udati hain.. ab kaha time hai kisi ke pass is sabke liye aur agar time ho to bhi logo ko ab ye kaam high class ya yu kahe ki sophisticated logo ke liye sahi nahi lagte hain..

Khair, mujhe to aaj bhi mauka mile to main patang udana pasand karungi… patang ko aasman me dekh ke lagta hai jaise main khud kahi dur ud rahi hu.. sari tensions se dur, khuli hawa me… maje se bah rahi hu.. 🙂

To, bas yahi sab pyaari si yaade aur bahut si tasty khaane ki cheeje hain jis se mujhe thand ka mausam achcha lagta hai aur ek tarah se to mujhe intejar rahta hai thand aane ka… aur aaj lag raha hai ki ab aur intezaar nahi karna padega is saal… 🙂 😀

Happy Winters!!!


 Why is it like people try to prove their choice superior to others’ choice? And try to convince them to agree on the point that their choice is better.

Yes, I have seen people ready to do anything to prove their point and alter the other person’s mind. Why can’t they understand that everyone’s different and so are their choices and likings. And if one can’t respect others’ choices, they are expected to voice their thoughts, tell the logic behind and leave the decision on the person to accept their views or not. It’s that person’s discretion whether to act upon it and change his opinion or to hold on his original thought.

Let me tell you about a real life situation to make my point clear. Everyone who knows me knows that SRK is my favourite actor. There was a time when I was mad about him and was just like any other crazy diehard fan. But with time, I have changed from a crazy girl to a mature fan of SRK.

But many of my friends don’t like him now (they say they used to like him earlier but not now). So?? So, I don’t have any problem with their stance on him. But I have a problem when they try to prove that whoever they like now is much better than SRK, they try to make fun of him, they try to point out his follies, they deliberately talk negative about him, his choice of films and his interviews.  They try to convince me to change my opinion about him. Why should I if I don’t share those views?? They say they like to tease me but when I give no ear to what all they say they kinda get mad and that shows that they are trying to convince me to dislike him instead of just teasing me.

I like SRK because of his acting skills, his smartness, intelligence, acumen, his ability to rise to that level from a middle class family and that too on his own. I like him because he is the only one actor who has never been talked about for any link ups with other girls. I like him because of his wits, his business knowledge and his ability to connect with public. I don’t deny the fact that he is a bit arrogant and loud about his achievements but that can’t be used to discount all his good qualities.

I know that the people who have decided not to like him and closed their mind can’t see all these qualities but I at least expect them to respect others’ choice or liking for someone and if not that, at least they are expected not to mock citing some silly weightless incidences / points about him.

And in the end, let me tell even if they don’t stop, it won’t make any difference to me as it has always been. I am not going to change my mind, not anytime soon… & yes, I like it when even after all the efforts my friends are clueless about what more to do to make me lose my temper… ha ha ha 😀

A: Haan sahi hai, aur phir bekar me Shaadi bhi karni padegi… yuhi jhanjhat hogi… 🙂 😀
Me & S: 🙂 😀 !!!!

I like this movie. Something about it is so inspirational and encouraging. So, here I am sharing my take aways from the movie and here goes the list…
  • Do whatever you want to do. Don’t keep things pending and wishes on hold.
  • Money isn’t everything, family n frens are more important so, work out your priorities accordingly.
  • Don’t wait for the right time to express your feelings, seize the moment and make it right.
  • Confront your fear. Do things you are afraid of and your fear will all disappear.
  • Try doing new things, be enthusiastic for experimenting. Learn from everyone you meet.
  • Don’t do anything which doesn’t make you happy just because of some external pressure.
  • Take time out to introspect and improve.
  • Don’t interfere in others’ business until unless invited to do so.
  • Give space to your friends and boyfriend/girlfriend.
  • Lead an independent confident life and don’t just be a shadow of your partner (especially applicable to girls).

Love freely, live without regrets, laugh often, learn to forgive and live the life to the fullest.


I am really really pissed off by people posting useless links especially, crap news articles link on social network sites.

What does those people think of others (the people getting their updates in newsfeed) while posting links to various breaking news articles from different sources. I mean what makes them do that?? Do they think all others live in an isolated world, deprived of any newspaper, news channel and it is their duty to enrich them with the unnecessary useless knowledge or should I say all the rubbish??

In this era of widespread breaking news syndrome (all thanks to the news channel war), is it possible that the people will not already be aware of each & every tiny mini breaking news (though most of that breaking news can’t even actually be called news)??? No matter how much one wants to avoid this, they can’t be completely successful at it. Aur ye itne news channels kya kam the jo ab log social media pe bhi links post karne lage hain…. !!! Kitne velle hain aise log… time pass nahi ho raha to chalo koi bekar si bakar bhari link hi post kar dete hain FB pe. Aur unke hi jaise 2-4 maha velle log comment bhi karne lag padte hain….

I can even understand it if the news one shares is something really extra ordinary or some new discovery, some new interesting research study etc. but hell no… they all are posting crap……..!!! And that too just for the sake of posting something and be active…

Ok, I get it, I get it… their only purpose behind such posts is to torture some hard to find sane people like me and have fun… 😀 😀 😉 Oh wait, did I got into their trap??? Oh no, I won’t let them have fun on the expense of my precious time… 😀 I won’t fall prey to this.

eh!! then why am I wasting my time writing about the crap they are posting?? err…. I should better get back to work now… so chao friends… Do leave comments if you too are pissed off by such posts showing in your news feed or otherwise…
