My random MUSINGS, tonnes of SMILES, brilliant THOUGHTS, vibrant COLORS and lots of STYLE.

Yuhuu blogging buddies. :)


I know I have kind of alienated my blogs, but I promise I am trying to return back.

Past few months of my life just flew by. In between traveling,  work,  classes ,  socializing, tweeting,  facebooking  ;D dint even realize that its already Halloween time. Well I left my resolution of posting almost everyday in between.

I keep seeing posts from my dear blogging friends. KUDOS to all of you.

Well currently I am obsessed with art and art history and in order to pacify the new found obsession I have created a new fan page on Facebook. I request you to please visit and like my page. Thanks once again .

1 Week in India.


Hey Friends,

How are you? It’s awesome to see how regularly everyone is posting on their blog. I am sure you all must be having a lot of fun.

Do you wanna know what I am doing in India?

My journey started on 15th of March with an early morning flight to Chicago and then after spending some 4 hours big 777 came in picture. This was my second international flight with American Airlines. My first trip with AA was to India only last year and I loved the flight and the service. Being a tall girl I always prefer an aisle seat and i have to admit that the leg room is super awesome in their economy section. Thanks for that AA (I might write a whole post on this, later on).

So after being in plane and on air port and spending some near to 24 hours in journey, i landed in India on the night of 16th at Delhi’s new International Terminal. One word for it : WOW! Loved it. It was a great feeling to see my family there at the airport. As soon as I saw them my exhaustion flew away. I stayed at my Masi’s (Aunt) place for night of 16th. I slept for almost 6-7 hours during the flight so I wasnt sleepy and plus the jet lag. The very night my brother also came from his medical school. He, I and my 2 cousins we had a card party and dint sleep till the wee hours of morning.Before card party we also went on a long drive which helped me in getting accustomed to Delhi’s traffic / driving ONCE AGAIN.😀

After catching 4-5 hours sleep that night,  we went out for shopping, came back in evening and then drove back to my parents home, which is a couple of hours from Delhi. It was super awesome to meet Dad. He was busy with his patients thats why he dint come to see me at the airport.  After a very long time we were all together, mom, dad, bro and I. Thats when i realized how badly I missed my childhood days.

Whole of 18th was spent at home, meeting mom and dad’s friends,  playing games with my brother,  chatting with them, without phone/internet, a food offer coming my way after every other hour (guess parents are like that) and at mom’s Salon & Spa😀. Giggles. 19th was spent in traveling with 12 hours of drive in one day with 4 hours of stay. On 20th there was an Indian festival of colorful “Holi” (everyone plays with lots of colors,  you should check out the link provided for more detailed info). I so badly wanted to play but my dad being a doctor forced me not to, thinking I might get hurt in someway. Ah, parents🙂. Again the day was spent meeting and greeting people with a dinner  in night. Anyway, I slept at 11 and a spam sms woke me up around 2am. My brother was awake at that time and we started chatting. Dint even realize when clock struck 5 and by 5:30 am I had to leave for Delhi with mom. She & Masi were hosting a party at a 5 star hotel at the lunch time.

2 hours of drive with mom was fun as well. Reached Masi’s place and after grabbing breakfast we were out of our home. They left for their party and I went for a hair spa at “Looks” . OMG! How relaxing it was I can’t even tell you. Almost 2 hours long and AWESOME! I came back home for lunch with mom & masi and after relaxing for an hour we were out again and this time my cousin accompanied us as well. Went to a designer’s place to check her collection and i placed an order for a gorgeous red Sari. Yiiipiiieeee🙂 By the time we came back home it was almost dinner time and I was super sleepy and sloshed. (remember I had only slept for some 3 hours in last 48 hrs. BTW, now I know if you wanna get the feeling that you are super drunk and you don’t wanna drink actually, it is easy ,just don’t sleep for couple of days straight and voila)😀 .

After sleeping straight for some 10 hours, 22nd of morning was spent meeting another designer. And I am proud say that soon I will be an owner of 4 more Indian Traditional and designer dresses 😀 Hihi. Came back around 3 in noon.  Ate my lunch hungrily🙂 and then thought to stay home and chat with my Masi🙂. Played games with my cousin bro and sis at night and slept.  Yesterday, that is   23rd, I was home almost all day and then in the evening went out to meet my college best friend. We were meeting after 5 years and never for a second felt that, 2-3 hours just flew by. After that came home for dinner and then everybody went to Cafe Coffee day. Came back and played “Bluff” in cards till 2-3 in night.  OMG! it was super hilarious.

Today we gonna go to an exhibition grab our lunch at 5 star again and needless to mention shopping. :)) BTW 26th -29th I will be in Goa with family. That should be a fun trip as well. But about that later on and oh i still need to call soooooo many friends.🙂

Hugs lovely blogging friends🙂

Wordless Wednesday # 6


San Diego’s Old town in 1872

A-)


Once upon a time there was a school called “WordPress High School”. “February”  and “January” were school’s most beautiful and happening girls.  They  were best friends. One day as they were sitting in the class and chatting, a new guy stepped in.  His name was “March”. He was super hot and both of the girls were dying to be friends with him. After initial introductions they chalked out a plan. They decided to invite him to join the “Postaday2011” group.

“Postaday2011” group meant writing a message on post its, throughout the year. Those messages will be read once a month. Writer of the maximum messages, will get to go on a date with the receiver of the maximum messages. March liked the idea and thought to give it a try .

He made up his mind to write a message every day, to the girl he liked the most. After school he used to pen down his thoughts and drop it in the box where all other messages were kept.  March was waiting patiently for the box to open and on another hand both February and January were getting desperate.

On that note : February got below written messages last month:

  1. Hello February! Meet your friend January

“Postaday2011” Group members,  who dropped by to share their messages:

In the end,  February got to go out with March (he wrote maximum messages). She won. January received 829 messages and February got 983. Oh and January was super jealous.

Stay tuned to see what happens to January and February’s friendship and if March can stay loyal to February. Next part of story will be posted on April 1st (keeping my fingers crossed)

Sketch # 5


 

This sketch is really close to my heart. I love the expression on the face, no matter what he is looking at but to me it looks like as if he is deeply lost in some thoughts.

Moved on or not?


She was deeply madly in love with him. He made her feel special and she in turn showered him with love and then some more love. Life for her was suddenly very beautiful. She started enjoying rains like she never did before, started dreaming with open eyes and she knew they were meant to last forever.  He used to talk to her for hours, loved her, cared for her and dedicated a good amount of time to her.  She felt blessed for the day when they came across each other on Facebook. That tiny tiny little “poke” that you see on your Facebook home screen,  was their first connection. She woke up one morning and there it was from a random guy. She didn’t know him, so she took her time in poking back and sent him a message asking if they knew each other.  That was the beginning of something unimaginable.

Time was suddenly on fast track, their phone conversation of few seconds transitioned into hours and hours of magical words, even then they couldn’t have enough of each other.  They had been talking on phone for several months now and it was time to meet in person.  Desperation was overwhelming and they were aching to be with each other. Finally that evening arrived, they went for a long drive and everything was amazing. Lots of butterflies were tickling her thoughts,  she knew she was ready. He made her feel like his queen. After dinner he took her to his place and the whole night was spent in sheer bliss and pure passion for each other.

Morning arrived and she woke up with a smile on her face only to find an empty space next to her. He was standing in the far end of the room, getting ready. She could see the look on his face, something was missing. After sometime both of them were sipping their cups of coffee. Neither said anything. She was scared to utter even a single word as she knew things have changed. He dropped her to her place, without saying anything to her, sat in his car and zoomed away. She absolutely had no idea what went wrong, thinking she might be over reacting she dialed his number.

It took her a year, lots of tears and un-returned calls to move on from that day. The day could easily be defined as her “Most Unforgettable and Most Horrible Day” at the same time. Finally she was moving on with her life, when one day she got a text message asking for her forgiveness. She knew it was from him. She knew she could not bear another breakdown. But she was forced to reply back after some hundreds of “sorry messages” and she called him up. She had to know the reason for the whole drama.  He asked for her forgiveness and apologized many a times. She forgave him but she had lost her faith in love since that day, therefore she gave him an option of just being friends and nothing more. He accepted it.

She had been friends with him since last 8 months and they talked only once in that duration of time. Today was just another day till she saw an Engagement Announcement on Facebook and her heart sank. Tears started to roll down her neck.

 

 

Life as we know it


Well I don’t have a good beginning in mind therefore I am just going to pour my heart out. I was wondering how time flies. We all see bad and good phases in our life.  No one can escape that route. Those who are super rich and has lots of money, face bad phases just like some one who is very poor and other way around. But who defines a bad or good phase? It varies from person to person, something that looks good to one may look horrible to other.  Then how do you judge whats good and whats bad? (Honestly, I have no idea if you can make sense out of all the words I am writing but I need to jot it down before I lose it).

I was thinking what if we all only see good times in our lives… how will our life look then? Just imagine our existence: with ample of money,  no worries,  no job problems,  no crimes,  no diseases, never to lose any of your loved ones, always with a smile and oblivious to words such as depression, poor, sad,  etc, will the picture be as beautiful? Makes no sense right? I know,  but I was trying to visualize something like this and trust me as much as the picture looked beautiful it still felt incomplete.

We all learn from our mistakes and that helps us to grow,  to tackle problems head on and explore unknown. Some learn from their own mistakes and some learn from mistakes that others commit,  but we all are continuously learning this way or that way. Thats what defines us,  it helps in creating our own unique character and separates us from other human being right? Adversities bring people either closer or drifts them apart but we are always breaking and making new connections.  Life has it’s own set patterns for everyone. We all do what we are supposed to do.  Now you may be thinking that “she has lost it”😀. Well I might have who knows🙂 . But at times random thoughts are the best thoughts.

In the end I will say,  “Even the prettiest picture that I envisioned was not that pretty. Life without any problems dint look that appealing”

Thoroughly confused:  A-)
