Bubbling over...

N called me early in the morning(odd hour), sure i was fast asleep!!! Hmmmffff....lolz.
Then we met online at say 3 pm.(slept till afternoon).
Now N is buying himself a bike. As i had mentioned in my earlier blog(JLT) due to his mum's beliefs he booked the bike only on monday this week( other days last week were inauspicious, you see). Hence the bike is being delivered by today evening.
In my adult life, that is from the past 3 years, i dont remember being so excited about something...lolz. Usually N is matured lolz, atleast on the surface but then there's a kid in of us. He has been mentioning his "would be bike" a few times this week in our chats or phone conversations. He seemed really excited today though! He was counting hours....last he told me was like 18 more hours to go and she'll (the bike, silly) be mine!!!! Hahaha...surprisingly with guys their gadgets or cars , yeah bikes too are almost always a "she". Ditto for him.
Ok, he called me last evening and yes we spoke about his BIKE!!!! Sadly i am not sure of which brand it belongs to...assuming yamaha, shiny black& sexy(to him). He also mentioned something like he has been daydreaming about him riding his bike in the rains , lolz, N said:"Bas maine aur meri bike!"(just him & his bike) lolz hahahaaha!!!!
N has always wanted a bike, drove a car back home in mumbai.
The hitch is:
He doesnt have a driving licence here as he is currently in Bangalore. hence has to first apply for that.
Secondly after the down payment( plzz forgive me N), he is almost broke so he cant buy an helmet lolz. Helmet is a compulsion(thank god for laws!!)

Lolz the best and the funniest part is, he said he doesnt or wouldnt want to dream about anything tonight(not even his beloved would be bike!) Because dreaming would cause him anticipation and yes that would lead to lack of sleep and then weariness...lolz. (read gurgles of laughter& fits of gigles)
Phew...so she is gonna be there tomorrow finally after a whole agonising week(his words).
Hmmmm have fun N and please dont kill me for this.
I am just being honest.

P.S: I need a bike's pic..so N wud u be kind enough to post me the pic and yeah am sure you'll be posing with her soon!!!

  2. at first i was like, "a bike" as in with two wheels and a seat and a little bell or horn-- not a motorcycle. so that was really funny to discover what it really was as i read deeper and deeper into the story.

    can you believe helmets are not required by law here in illinois?

    and i remember my husband saying all the time when he was in india about "inauspicious" days. on days we are feeling auspicious we shower our indian gods with honey and elephants and marigolds and put spices on their bindis...

    thanks for the well-wishes for tonight.
    hope you don't get ANOTHER 3 AM call.

GO ahead, say it out loud!

#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…

Source: Google Images
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…
