High on Heels...

My sabbatical from blogging is over. I guess I couldn’t stay away. Ok I confess, Supriya forced me to continue! She is my inspiration… [:)]

[The last week was a mess for the most part. Tonnes of things happened. I was insecure about my job, my article was going nowhere and to add the cherry on the icing was “me & him” having a major fight. We did not talk for two whole days. Nah, we did actually but they were more of sarcastic remarks and jabs at each other. I am glad it is over. He was here on the weekend all for me! Yay]

It’s been almost seven months since I started working. And these seven months have ensured that I have a lot of money or rather spending money! I am not a compulsive shopper but sometimes I do get impulsive. And I love shoes. Show me a girl who doesn’t? So well in the past some portion of my salary has been spent on SHOES.

I got my first pair of stilettos on my 21st birthday. Then no shoes buying till me emotionally blackmailed my folks into buying me a 'blingy big colourful stones' wala chappal. [Let’s not get into the costs ok?] Then in early 2008 I bought a lovely pair of heels from Inc.5.


Well from June 2008 there was no looking back. I happened to come across these lovely flats at Habit, Colaba and instantly bought them. Then we went to Matheran sometime in October and I ended up buying three chappals.
On my 23rd birthday I gifted myself two sexy heels—metallic blue wedges and black satin peep toes. Ma was horrified as usual but well I thought it would end here for a while. But come 19th January I bought a sexy pair of silver sandals.


This is my eighth pair in seven months. And I am not even guilty of over spending. Now I need a shoe-wardrobe!

P.S: Ma was upset for a while but well, she fits into all my shoes so no bother! Bf was a lil flustered. He was like just let know how much of salary would go into buying you shoes! //winks//giggles…

A book review – Whispering Paths

The first time I interviewed someone for an assignment, the piece came back with a remark which read – ‘MOTS’ needs flesh, i.e. man on the street needs flesh! Whatever that meant, confusion was my first reaction to it. However, with writing and then rewriting the same assignment over, and over again, I realized that I had to add character or rather more ‘meat’ to the story. So what is my point here? I am trying to say that when someone asks me to read a new book or try a new author, I am generally wary of them. Why? Because I do not want to read through the book like a zombie because there is nothing (in terms of ‘meat) in its story or the characters!
But (There is always a catch, isn’t it?) Whispering Paths by Sneha Subramanian Kanta is different. Her debut publication has already put her in a league of writers who are out there to tell stories; stories that touch a chord deep within us and haunt us (in a good way) for time to come. Stories that a reader can relate to, feel the pain, …

What you get when you get a Dog...

Of moist wet noses and itchy ears, Pinpricks as bites and scratchy burs.
Ticks and twists, trips and tears, Licks and nips, and soulful stares.
Of woofs, barks and soft growls, Ruined furniture and empty food bowls.
Of smelly poop and slippery pee, Cuddly hugs, kisses and so much glee!
Of sleepless nights and dreamless mornings, When endless walks in the park become your calling.
Of wagging tails and adorable paw shakes, Shedding hair, rollovers, and shakes.
Of crashing dins and chasing leaves, Bring one home and you’ll never grieve.

From A Dream

He walked, bare feet, on a mass of crushed sea-shells Coarse sand clung onto him, he watched her Afar; sitting motionless on a wind-beaten rock As if waiting for knell
'Wosh-wosh' screamed the waves Gloriously furious, crashing on the moss-covered dock They came high, they came low Yet slow, the sea so magnificent they seemed insignificant He watched her, sitting motionless As if waiting for knell
Ominous clouds o'er head played hide-n-seek with the moon threatening to steal light till noon He prayed, she'd move and he'd take her away
somewhere warm, happy and safe
And then she turned to look at him,
Him eager, she like waif, smiled
his heart in blithe
Only to step deep into the waters
Now safe from the knell



(This is from a dream I had recently)
