Here and there...



Time is running out fast or maybe I am too slow. Or I am in between somewhere. The past one week has been a blur. I have written posts and deleted them. All rubbish. Too many Facebook status updates, too much bubble popping game and not much sleep. 


People tell me sleep at least 12 hours a day now! But I am grateful that I manage about 3-4 hours on good days.   I haven't been much talking to people either. Especially at home I have been quiet much to my parents' chagrin. I always have something to say but not these days. Its like history repeating itself - flashback to 2003 when I had gone into complete hibernation. Practically starved myself of everything - food, company and conversation. No clue why. Lost a lot of weight though...


This time round I only seem to be piling on a lot of weight. Lol. Wasn't speaking to my sister too, for reasons best known to me. 


It is Ganesh Chaturthi today. I am sort of excited, more agitated. Work is real slow because I cannot concentrate. Have been talking a lot to my mom in law and those are the only highlights in my day. Thats it for now. Another meaningless post. Chao.

  2. You're lucky to have such a mom-in-law, Nikita. Not everyone gets it! Can understand it by the meaning of 'highlighted'.
    About the weight bit and other wishes, just don't worry.

  7. Okay! That was strange. I hope everything's fine :)

    And am sure you probably won't care for it now, but I can't hold myself from saying this. It's not "chao", it's "ciao" :P

#Sorry not sorry

I feel sorry for ‘Sorry’ – such an abused term. When you come to think of it, it is just a word, right? It holds significance in some instance and at times, it is a mere excuse. But we humans absolutely love it as an excuse, don’t we? I use this term a lot; I mean a lot! I think of myself as a kind being, and hence, if I happen to push or ignore (deliberate), I say ‘sorry’. I say sorry for things that may not need a ‘sorry’. I say ‘sorry’ to people I am not really feeling sorry for (don’t read this the wrong way). In short, I say ‘sorry’ a lot like I have already admitted. It is my ticket to moving on, a ticket to redeem myself for mistakes and sometimes, tinged with slight sadness (maybe).


But is ‘Sorry’ the right word? Mean, is it even appropriate? Like they say, first you commit the murder and then say sorry. What is the point of it? I would say nothing. Sorry – the term originated from the West Germanic term Sore that evolved to Sarig, meaning pained or distressed. It is also known…

Celebrating Navratri? Stop now as we have no right to worship the female form...

Today my mom asked me to go get fall bidding done for her new saree. Navratri has begun and Durga Pujo is just around the corner. This year we are planning to go Pandal hopping on a Saptami instead of an Ashtami or Navmi to avoid the jams and the crowds. I will wear a saree too and my Punjabi husband will tag along for the delicious food.
In a multicultural household like mine, most festivals are a big deal, especially Navratri and Durga Pujo. But in the hullabaloo of festivities, we don’t stop to think of its essence – why do we celebrate Durga Pujo or Navratri at all. To celebrate Ma Shakti – a prompt answer from my mother. Navratri is a celebration of the nine stages of womanhood – a tribute to the power of the female.But to us commoners, it is a festival of dancing to the tunes of Garba or dandiya or Bollywood music. It is our turn to wear our best clothes, head out in the night, meet family and be merry. And once, this is over, the female form goes back to being what they always a…

I Wonder What Ants do on Rainy Days…

On days when the sun has abandoned us, hiding behind the grey, moody clouds. Do they sit inside their hills and wonder out loud? Do they stare outside at the rain, measuring the raindrops, letting thoughts splotch all over? Does the earthy petrichor take them down the memory lane? Or are they content with what nature has to offer? It is a part of their lives, isn’t it? They dredge up foods daily, diligently build their hills, even if it is to serve their queen, only to enjoy it on days like this, no? Maybe they do take stock of things, of their bearings. They ought to sleep it off, take a day to rest or do they lament on the lost time?
Unlike me.
When I gaze out, a gazillion thoughts fly by; some worthy of the pen, some so disturbing that I often question my sanity. I like the grey skies though. They seem like textured canvases waiting for me to scribble something. The lazy raindrops wetting the streets below and casting a temporary stain on window ledges bring a…
