Just shut your trap

An apt image for me right now. Looks like most of my weekends I am going to end up feeling this way. Its the same old story and the same old rant. I hate having to promise something that I am not going to do and being promised something only to continue doing it. May I suggest something very simple? Just don't freaking promise me anything! It helps. Because once I know someone is not going to do it then there is no hope and no hope means no disappointments. And leave me be. 

But no...promises, promises and promises, what for? For breaking them after they are made. Take my parents for example, they always promise to take some action against a certain somebody for misbehaving. No that has not happened in the longest of times. And frankly I don't care. My mom is never on time so I just grin when she tells me to do something on time. And whenever I am around dad, he starts to crib about how dirty the house is! What happens when his lil precious one is around? Nothing. He goes mum then. Hilarious. 

And my boyfriend [he insists that we are still boyfriend/girlfriend even though we are engaged] has already started behaving like a disinterested husband. Work takes over my time for him. The MAC is more important and yeah, suddenly he wants shorter conversations. For heck sake, we have a long distance relationship which is already tough but no shorter and shorter it gets by the day. 

Romance has of course taken a back seat. He insists that we are never going to be a boring couple. But hey...I am already yawning! Bah. Whatever. I can go on and on. 

I love my work and moreso now because I don't have anything else to do. So its taken for granted that I am a workaholic and yeah, I will never be able to be the homely girl people expect me to be. I have one question - Do I look like I care? Frankly with so much going on...I don't. Think what you want to. There is time till I get married and I am going to do what I like till then!

Another stupid thing that comes my way these days is - learn to cook and look after your husband. Okay what about me? I am the one who is going to leave my family behind and go into a new house. So why doesn't anyone tell him to look after me? No, thats not happening because he is the Jamai. Nice. 

So I don't know about God and how he/she manages to answer stupid questions. Just don't ask me any. And if you happen to...then you will get what you asked for. You have been forewarned.

  14. @ Raj

  15. "There is time till I get married and I am going to do what I like till then!"... PLEASE do what you like even after marriage!!.. marriage should not be a 'new life'.. but part of your original life!..

    and are you the pati-parmeshwar types?? whats all this rant about 'leaving my house.. going to his house'.. u in 60's? common woman! both of you should be leaving your parents' houses and starting your own!.. (unless his/your parents cant look after themselves..)

    as for H behaving like a 'disinterested hubby'.. i think even you r behaving like a 'complaining wife'.. ;)...

    No offence.. !!

  16. oh well just a slightly brainy idea of a joke :)

    had forgotten you are a girl :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…

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…
