Rains..coffee, romance and long drives…

coffeeRains..they do something to everyone….it makes you romantic, lazy, happy, depressed, every emotion possible that one can think of!I love the rains too..not for the puddles but for the way the earth smells, the way everything around becomes a shade brighter and beautiful, everything and everyone around seems happier too! 🙂 colourful umbrellas, raincoats and not to forget making paper boats 😉 ( for ppl creatively handicapped like me) it’s the sheer joy of seeing those paper boats floating in a puddle brings happiness & the colourful surroundings! Oh n i almost forget the hot chai,hot chocolate, mills & boon and a nice blanket to cuddle up in and enjoy the rain is something i am sure a lot of us have done and continue doing…

Sometimes there is no joy like sitting on a window sill with the windows wide open and the rain drops falling on ur face, getting wet in the rain, and sometimes its nice to weep your heart out also..you’ll end up feeling so much lighter….

raindropsi write this post, dedicating it to my monday night..when it poured and i did somethin that i always wanted to go on a long drive, listen to music, and jus enjoy the silence with the person right next to you. I felt like i was in love..such high i haven felt in the long time…and i jus didn’t want the night the drive and the rains to end! sigh..i wish they happen more often!! 🙂

notes….

its been a while since the last post and the last one was not all that happening.

For those who know me well kniw what my weekends are like,it’s loads of washing, cleaning & loafing ( read as windowshopping or just exploring the streets of Chennai).For me every week is like spring cleaning, i just dont understand how i can have so many things that i dnt want with me 😉

This time round was this huge cardboard box full of book, pictures and a lot of things that were forgotten, and there yet again I had opened a pandora’s box of memories i saw pictures of friends and places and outings that were long forgotten and then i found something even more interesting, hand written notes, cards and a lot of hand made stuff…some of the handwriting on those notes were really sad but then they brought back lovely memories of the little things that I did to make someone happy and also notes that said i m forgiven for those misunderstandings that i have had with people.
Oh and yes for some reason I still had my report of the entertainment secretary..and all those comments i had written in between while the GB was in progress…. 😉
It’s sad that nobody writes letters or notes anymore or let alone make cards for anyone!I am nt anti-email or anything, its jus that there is a charm to hand written stuff.a certain joy that is so evident on someone’s face when they see you have made an effort to make them or write them somethin nice!
guess somewhere down the line my love for writing letters began with writing letters to my grandparents.. mama’s way of making me improve my handwriting and ya some way to make me still instead of running round and talking! 🙂
so i guess at the end of this post, i hope someone leaves me a little note and makes my days henceforth and i hope so too to write someone a note and make a card something i had long forgotten how to do!! so happy writing! 🙂

Boring…..

Boredom these days seem to define my life. They say an ‘idle mind is the devils workshop’ but i guess my mind has become so boring that devil himself has refused to reside or let alone pay me a visit.

For most people who know me I come across as a live wire..so completely full of energy,so much energy i have that i am know i can surely get people hooked to me, on the other hand if i am bored i am right the extreme.
It’s so ironical that we all say that we live a fast paced life, the world has become smaller, technology rules our life and life’s happening but despite…all of it, but we are Bored! life is not fun anymore,people are boring,work is boring, clothes r boring..everything is just BORING!!!

I guess its ‘coz we have everything we want but we just fail to stop breathe and live. We forget that apart from all of the things that makes us happy are material and we are on that constant journey…journey to rediscover and find ourselves…and find things that makes us happy!

probably…this would be one of the most boring posts i ever wrote…see yet again another BORING, because I have no idea where this post is heading to!

hmmm…but after all the gyan i gave on soul searching..i aint in a mood for following it…I m in a mood to pack my bags, gather a bunch of friends, get a big picnic bag and head to pastures where life will be greener and boredom will have no space! 🙂 maybe just call in sick tomorrow also..just to kick boredom in the Butt!! 😉

Hope…

when the world says “Give up”, Hope whispers, “Try it one more time.”
~Author Unknown~

Hope, the one word on which our lives run…every morning we wake up with the hope that tomorrow is yet another day and life will give us a chance to undo the wrongs and rebuild our tomorrow.
hope makes us dream, hope makes us fall in love, hope makes us wait, hope makes us want to live..hope makes us wanna spead our wings and fly, hope makes makes us wanna try jus that one last time when the odds are stacked against you, hope makes us not to lose hope and gather the pieces of our broken heart..hope makes us pray & wipe others tears, hope makes us hold somebody’s hand..hope makes us what we are….

For those of you who are low and feel there is no hope..fret not for after every storm there is a lovely rainbow that shines through..I am sure i’ll see the rainbow too…only if i dnt let go of Hope! 🙂

Children bundles of joy….

This idea for putting this down came while i had a nice long chat with my friend…and hence credit for this one goes to him! 🙂

Children..bundles of joy…and also bundles of unexpected… really unexpected surprises! I consider myself truly blessed to be a part of a large family,I have been surrounded by older siblings all the time and then I was the child..pampered, played with all the time,was the face that they would experiment the new makeup, try out hairstyles..all of it!

Many a years have passed by my older cousins have grown up..moved out of the house and have started familes of their own and have been blessed with wonderful daughters..yes..our family (i think should be considered by the Govt of India in promoting the welfare of the girl chid 😉 )
Now its my turn, as an aunt to be everything that their mothers have been wonderful friends, loving sisters..all of it…This weekend was a wonderful one..my sister i m sure would disagree on this..that i m quiet a hit with children..she would say “chechi and kids…they all run away from her just because she has eyes as big as saucers! :P” but not this time…infact all of them bonded with me..I braided their hair,played with them and listened to all the stories and shared their excitment of having us around them and all they had to say including some of the really classic comments they had to say about marriages and being married!can you beat that!? :-/

This weekend I didnt feel one bit older..infact felt younger…on my way back i looked out the train window and thought back to those lovely days of being a kid and to those 3 days..and all i can think is I have a huge packet of lovely memories all tightly packed and sealed…”memories of a lifetime” all at some point in life will make me smile!

the match-makers….

This is one of the most talked about topic in my life!oh! wait not just my life…i guess in most of my friend’s lives too!!! MARRIAGE!! 😥
I guess it’s those phases in life that when its starts…till you just dnt give into the pressure it jus doesn stop!

The moment a girl steps outta college..her parent’s are worried that she might just find herself someone who is hmmm..well not the rite person and screw up the rest of her life..hence they set themselves and everyone else on the MAN Hunt.. oops…;) i mean the groom Hunt! 🙂

but while the hunt begins these are some of the interesting things ( read as very annoying ) that i came across..which some of you all might agree…and some might not!

1.Every proposal that comes or every boy ur parents meet is a “nice boy” and an “eligible bachelor”
2. What if he is not al that “hep”, but his family is too good…one of those ancient families
3. suddenly your parents would want to meet your girlfriend’s parents and wants you to attend all their weddings..hoping that u manage to find nice men there!
4. This is one is classic! They bring you weird proposals from boy’s whose names r ‘Romeo’, imagine being married to someone like tht…i mean like what do u expect me to do…cut all my relations with my friends and live with the ridicule for the rest of my life!?
5. N then comes famous line all parents give their children…”we hardly knew each other when we got married..i m sure you will like him once you get married!” n like what am i to do if i dnt?!! :-/
6. sudenly people you have never seen in your life..will land up at ur doorsteps..all proclaiming to be some relative of urs!even their driver or other people give their valuable comments & bring u marriage proposals!
7.and when they insist you meet someone!they give u instructions on being the well behaved girl, its against the rules to talk more than 15 mins and if you exceed half an hour somebody from the family starts walking up & down ( u have no idea how excellent their non verbal communication can be) and if it’s one hour they think u have already planned ur future with that guy! what i fail to understand..is how the hell am i supposed to decide my future in 15 minutes!
8.Every b’day after 23..is a living nightmare!they jus remind u every year and all thru that u r getting old and nobody will marry u!ya rite, like all the men are gonna disappear or they ar all gonna turn saints! 😉
9.after they give up tryin to find u the perfect groom they give u the option to find ur self the man of ur choice…yayaya..i knw but wait even b4 i cna be happy a list follow “educated, well to do, mallu christian boy only!!!” bah!! there goes my hopes & dreams!
10. I cant think of a last reason tried really hard!:) well someday i’ll fill it in!
Not that i have anythin against anyone blissfully married or gettin married..it’s jus that i haven found someone who wouldn wanna make me rewrite these reasons..but let’s hope i do!
Till then happy reading… 😀 while i go home to attend my cousin’s wedding and deal with these above mentioned annoying reasons! 🙂

Ain’t no sunshine when she is gone….

Ain’t no sunshine when she’s gone.
It’s not warm when she’s away.
Ain’t no sunshine when she’s gone
and she’s always gone too long
anytime she goes away.

well this is one of her fav songs..and also features in one of her fav movies Notting hill! 🙂

these line perfectly describes how i feel abt the person i m dedicating this post to.. wanted it to be special…coz this one is dedicated to that someone special my soul sister Prani.. (my own sister pls dnt take offence to this..i love you as much as i love her)

My soul sister if i may say is completely crazy!! my world of sunshine she is… from throwing attitude,to giving dirty looks, to being the most spaced out person she is one of a kind!and i mean it she is ONE of a kind!

From a terrifyin senior to my soul sister it’s been a quiet a journey for two people..me and her….i still remember meeting her the first time Main Middle bathroom ( c’mon nw don’t get dirty ideas) and trust me i hated her..i just couldn imagine that someone could be really nasty to a fresher! 😉

I m sure if you ask both us we wouldn’t know where and how we became such inseperable friends…. but all i knw is that every moment spent with her has always been a celebration of a kind. we have had our moments of complete maddness, wept our hearts out, gone for long walks around the campus, shared our respectives ‘highs’ ( well it was always her n never me) had girls day outs, watched movies together, contemplated over life, shared accessories, clothes and also gud friends.
It’s very rarely in life that you make those special friends who can complete a sentence even before u finish it, read your mind and even better we both were suffering sleeplessness together. I have always been known to follow her..all the way from wcc to mcc to living together now….

She now stands at the threshold to a new beginning….yes she is gettin married..on July 25th..with that an era of friendship is going to go through a change..i know her every fear, i knw wat’s on her mind…i knw wat’s going to make her smile and i knw wats not going to…but through this all i am sure i will always be her best friend and she mine..for this is a lifetime of friendship and sisterhood that will i m sure will stand the test of time!
I ‘ll be there on her D-day to usher her into that world of happoness and to always make sure that she stays happy! 🙂 love ya babes..so here’s to us…and our friendship…Cheers!

Morning Cheer

With laughter being touted as the most inexpensive, economical, and not recession hit commodity i have found myself a new hobby..tryin to spread a smile..which some1 passes on to me thru my early morning ‘very entertaining forwards’..read them (as very sidey).

These forwards are something that i look forward to..only coz however sidey they r they make me smile…the best part is they vary very day..from sardarji jokes to marriage, to alcohol to relationships, santa banta jokes dreams, hopes ..the topics are pretty interesting…they can vary from the corniest of jokes to some really good ones which are jus mind-blowing! 😀

Today after reading one of the forwards a poor tortured recipient of the same msged me back ( refer joke below) saying… ” why why why??why dnt u jus buy a gun & shoot me or btr still, buy a lion and simbly ‘shoo’ it on me!! ( sorry dude this reply jus made me smile)so thought i’d put it up…

so for all of u wondering wat these forwards of mine are..here is a sample..and incase any of u wanna subscribe to my morning cheer pls leave a comment or jus msg me..and i’ll add u to my list!
