Today was an awesome day for me! Since Moon didi is back home (she was hospitalized few days back) she herself threw a lunch for us! :-D. Yeah well I know we shouldve done that, but then its okay, she loves to cook and so called us for lunch!

She makes yummy food! Today she made some Pula sorte shachwa (some french thingy!)...but to make your and my life easier, they also have an english name for it: Chicken in brown sauce! After lunch we played cards and it was soooo much fun! I also took some amazing songs from Mumu didi (Moon didi's elder sister). After that we did timepass (that is clicked pictures!).

In all it was a really great day! yay!! :-D

Durga Pujo, 2009

This year's Durga Pujo was good. It wasnt great fun because one of our "gang" members, my Moon di was down with malaria and stomach infection and thus was hospitalized. We shopped soooo much and she couldnt wear even a single thing that she bought for herself. Also she is my "picture partner", we both can pose for n number of pics and never get tired. She is sooo much fun to be with. (Yes she is my best friend).Anyway she is okay now.

So it was just me, Shubho, Rakesh dada, Tuptup didi, Ronnie and Mumu didi (Moon di's elder sister). All we did was dress up, go to the pandal, eat, do "timepass" and rush to the Vashi pujo at night for dinner. The food was okay there. We wanted to have authentic bengali food like chops, mughlai parantha,phuchka, fries (not french fries) etc etc. I couldnt go pandal hopping though, my parents did and so did Shubho!

Everything was good but I missed Moon didi (we all did!)

I dont have to say anything! Seriously.

Where is the tall, dark handsome man? Rough and tough MAN? Where?

My latest buy!

One of the lucky days when I got this awesome pair of stilettos from METRO sale. I love them! :-D

Tuesday, September 8, 2009

She met him a year back. One year and 3 months to be precise. In this one year, she met him almost everyday and spoke to him everyday and exchanged scraps and had online chats. Everyday.

Initially she just did not like him. Found him too fast and that annoyed her a lot. But he is like that. She did not know.

Calls. Ignored.

Messages. Ignored.

However she couldnt continue to ignore him (he was her best buddy's cousin!). So she met him. "Once!! only once i'll meet him, that too just for my friend."

She met him again.

And again. And again. And again....and again....

With all this happening, she did not even realise when she had fallen for him. He is the bad-guy. She is the saint. She likes bad boys. She wonders whether it will ever work out. Will it?

She doesnt know. He doesnt know.

As they say.."dil toh aakhir dil hai naa, meethi si mushkil hai naa..."

Monday, September 7, 2009


She was sitting on her window pane with a hot cup of coffee. It was raining outside. Heavily. She looked at the pouring rain and memories came rushing back to her...

"Baba...look rains! Water! yipppeeeeyyyy!! Please lets make a paper boat and sail it!!!"

"Maa maa....its raining..can i go out? please please!! See all my friends are getting wet!"

"Hello? Yeah hi, are you going to school? Shit ya its raining soo hard! I am toh bunking.."

"Listen, take your umbrella with you and dont get wet! I will not take you to the doctor if you fall sick!"

"Shivam...ready? one, two, three...splashhhhhhhhhh!!!!"

"Kya kar rahe ho tum log? This water is NOT good! you may get some infection!!"

"I love to get wet in the rains..."

"Sexy! Wassup? Arent you getting bored? Come out...lets meet! So what if its raining? Who cares? Apun ke pass gaadi hai naa!"

"Whhaaaattt!! She has come to college? Why on earth? Are you mad! Why did you come today? Its pouring cats and dogs! Go home....please! We want to sleep."

All this and more just came rushing back to her. She sipped her hot coffee and thought of those wonderful moments, those wonderful conversations. Rains are so so beautiful, she wondered whether any other day would also bring back these memories the way the rains did today.

This year has been jinxed for us. Bigtime.

First there was this whole TEACHER'S STRIKE. It went on for 45 days. Okay i know that the teacher's are fighting for something really important, but what nonsense why do we need to suffer? We never got proper holidays and now we wont have diwali vacations also! I mean if they would have closed the college for those 45 days then it would have been fine. BUT NO! We had unofficial lectures and now we will be having block lectures in the month of october, so basically NO HOLIDAYS! Plus being a psychology single major student, we have sooo much to do!! Specially practicals and those stupid university projects! I mean i would have really loved doing them provided our professors wouldnt have pressurized us and created so much tension for no reason!

Then second thing....SWINE FLU! I dont have to elaborate. This stupid thing ruined everything! I mean KALEIDOSCOPE got postponed! Kscope..postponed! (btw guys its happeneing from 17th nov to 22nd nov). Stupid swine flu and stupid people...masks! yuck!!

So I dont like this year! Too much to do, study and work but very little time. No time to breathe and i have soooo many problems to handle! :-(

Wednesday, June 10, 2009

I haven't been actively blogging for quite sometime now even though i had all the time in the world ( you know vacations!). Yes lazy me!! But now i have decided that i will keep updating the blog whenever time permits! yay!!

Anyway some really really good things have happened to me in the past few months. I met my closest buddy ( yes Shivam is back!). I also got through Psychology single major (yeah i wanted it sooo much!). Kaleidoscope work will begin soon and I have adopted a puppy ( but i am not allowed to bring him home, street I feed him regularly and I call him Chucky but my friends dont like that name! but as if I care I call him Chucky anyway!)

And now some not so good things....I have a really really tight schedule.My college timetable is horrible and the portion is vast, never-ending and we cannot leave anything! :-(
And my Coffee is going to Norway! I will miss you sooo much :-( No words can express how much that sooo much is!

PS: This is my 50th post! :-D

tricky tag!

The reason why i like to do tags is that i dont have to make up anything...i need to think but i know what to write! (Did you understand? hehe)

Anyway GENTLE WHISPERS has tagged me this time and i have to say that this one is a little tricky! Okay lets try...

1 is the rank that everyone wish to achieve! (uh so lame! dint know what to write!)

2 is the number of coordinators left in Team Despatch :-(

3 is that time in the afternoon when i do nothing..absolutely nothing!!

4 is the time when there is a powercut..everyday! (angry!)

5 marks is what i had got once in my math test...hehe! I laugh about it now but trust me when i had got those marks it was killing me!

6 is the time in the evening when I go for my evening walk.

7 is the year when i had celebrated my birthday in was bad! :-(

8 is the number of people there in our 'bong-gang'....we have fun..some serious fun :-D

9th is the month of the year when KALEIDOSCOPE happens! :-D

10 pm is my deadline! i have to be back at home by 10 pm...though a little here and there happens all the time...but that is the set deadline! :-(

This tag is soooo sooo tricky! I had to think soo much and some of them dont make sense also! hehe

I am tagging ANURAG,BABBI and PJ.

Well this is FUN!! :-D

Change is an essential theme of life. Accepted. But what if we could avoid it? Life would have been so so simple and easy.

I dont want people around me to change, I dont want things around me to change, I dont want the circumstances to change.

I dont want YOU to change. I dont want anything to change.

SYBA ends...

Okay so another year of college has passed! Yes another awesome year has passed and I am not at all glad! Why do all good things come to an end?Why????

To be frank, school was good..i made friends and things were just fine!But it was limited,there was a lot of partiality and somehow it did not let me grow...somehow and i really dont know whether its just applicable to me or not.The relationships I had built in school were quite superficial,some were not and i am glad about it but most were.The people in school be it the teachers or classmates all they knew was academics,studies and marks! If you dont score well you are a poor student and you know nothing and are treated not so nicely.I mean what I really want to know is..can a 3 hour examination test our knowledge?Can it really prove how good we are? Surely school days were fun and I miss them..specially my friends and the time we all had spent together.I am not very fond of my 11th and 12th years as I was mainly stuck with "bookworms"..seriously! All they knew was physics,chemistry,mathematics and IIT and PMT! And I did not belong to this category! I still dont understand why on earth did i do science in 11th and 12th! However my 8th 9th and 10th standard years were fun! Those were the years I will never forget :D

Anyway now back to college! After getting into SOPHIA my life has changed completely and I mean it.I always knew that South Mumbai colleges rock and that once you are associated with one of these colleges then there is no looking back! It feels so nice when I tell people that I am from SOPHIA's and they exclaim "wow!! ya..lucky." I am indeed lucky and I feel that i am blessed that I got into such a prestigeous college!After getting admission here I got to study two of my favourite subjects ENGLISH LITERATURE and PSYCHOLOGY.I have ECONOMICS too but somehow I dont think I am ECO-MATERIAL!

English Literature (or just lit!) is one subject that has widened my perception and the way I look at things! I have learned so much from this subject.I now know that we should not only read a book but analyse it aswell and I know how to analyse a book now.How to interpret the hidden message from simple and subtle things!I am so so lucky to have had professors like DR.VAKIL , MA'AM JIHASA, MA'AM KANORIA and SISTER ANANDA! These four women are just AMAZING!!

Then its how can I express my love for this subject? All I can say is that I want to major in this subject and I am DESPARATE for it!SERIOUSLY!..Now this says all...doesnt it?hehe

In college I have found 'real' friends...I have learned how things work...the maddness during k'scope and more.

Just one more year of college and this is NOT great for me! S.Y.B.A has ended and so will T.Y.B.A and I know that I wont even realise how and when the year will pass....

PS : Nobody noticed the important things I wrote before my tag in my previous post! :(
Secondly,this post is so so different from my usual way of writing! Dont you think so?

Friday, February 27, 2009


Okay i think my blog will slowly turn into a TAG blog (is that appropriate?..i dont know!). But i guess i have no choice if i dont wish to have a ''CRIMINAL CASE' lodged against me. As there is no cyber freedom anymore and we live in a country where women cannot drink, smoke or go to pubs (or as a matter of fact do anything apart from sitting at home and producing kids..ideal ''bahu''!) orelse moral police officers like PRAMOD MUTHALIK ( who by the way has 45 criminal cases against him) will thrash us black and blue and teach us the RIGHT thing and tell us about Indian culture! You know what i just cant wait to learn about MY culture, MY India and what I should do with MY life from THEM! What social workers! AH-MAH-ZINGGGGG is the word! I mean what would we do without people like Ms.Pratibha Naithani who registers complaints with the police every 6 months to ban every other thing because she doesnt find them morally upright and thinks that her kids will suffer and very conveniently appears in the front page of the newspapers( aa..Miss one question please!..dont you have even 1% control over your children? I feel sorry for you!).But at the end of the day we live in a DEMOCRATIC COUNTRY....hmm what a BIG word!

Anyway i shall not say anything (hehaw!) and continue with the tag. This time i was tagged by CYNNIE in FACEBOOK and when i read ANURAG's blog i realised that 'oh! I can publish the tag in my blog!yay!'...dude thanks!

Okay so 25 random things about me :

1)I love to read, though i am lazy and donot easily start with a book, but once i do..then there is no stopping!

2)I love to shop!...and i love to bargain! I am good at it..seriously!

3)I hate people who wear/use fake brands! I mean dont use a brand atall..who cares which branded pair of jeans or t-shirt you are wearing? Fake ones look so wannabe and one can make out that they are fake :p

5)I love to watch F.R.I.E.N.D.S and TOM and JERRY!

10)I love shoes!..i did mention that earlier in one of the tags!

11)I love to socialize..i cant be kills me!

12)I am the only child and seriously i miss having a sibling!!..i want someone to fight with! :D

13)I dont understand the entire recession thing!!..why could it not happen 100 years later!!!!arrrrggghh!

14)I hold very strong opinion about certain issues and never ever budge from them...neither do i plan to! :p

15)I love pasta and pizza!..but i looovvvvveeeeeee bengali cuisine! (did you get the difference between the 2 loves?)

You dont eat, you dont go out, you sit at home and what do you do? You study!..yes you study for your stupid test! sleep at 1:30 am and wake up at 5:00 am..sacrifice SLEEP..SLEEPPPP!!!!

You get over at 9:40 a.m on the test day (yes you have only 2 lectures!!..stupid isnt it?) and the test is scheduled at 1:15 pm (this is more stupid and disgusting!). So what do you do? You keep studying..bury yourself in the book because the portion is nothing less than 'MAHABHARATA' and since the subject is PSYCHOLOGY you need to pay extra attention and understand stuff otherwise it goes above your head! For around 4 hours you sit in one place and read and read and read and discuss topics with your equally frustrated friends. Then somehow you manage to finish the portion and reach ROOM NO. 27 (you dont even know where the hell room no. 27 go mad searching and searching!!!)Anyway after all this you reach the room and wait...and wait and wait.....

You wait for 30 minutes and realise that the professor will not come....!!!!

Just will you feel then?...arrrrggggghhhhhh????

It is soo irritating..this was the first time when i was NOT glad that the test did not happen!

PS : Gentle whispers gave me a blogger award.Sorry for mentioning it sooo late!Thank you Lyandra!My first ever blog award!yay

What happens when we grow up?Do we forget our childhood friends?Do we forget the people with whom we grew up?Do we forget those amazing moments?

What happens when you are 'committed' to a person? Dating someone? That person becomes the sole important person in your life? Does that mean that you'll forget your friends,the promises you made to them? That suddenly you will feel that the people with whom you've spent your entire childhood are BORING? That if your narrow-minded , un-intelligent , typical girl-without brains , moronic girlfriend is jealous of will say that it is fine? FINE? That you will hang up on me because of that girl? And you will forget all others? All of us? Because of someone so new in your life? I know that tomorrow if you will fall we will be there to catch you , but I cannot say the same thing about her.

I am not against you being in a relationship or spending time with the girl you 'love'. I mean if I would be against it then I would fall in the same category as she is . I am not those types who would demand all your time , that is totally ridiculous . But all i request you is to fulfill your promises...dont make promises and break them , because you are not just breaking promises but hearts too.

What should i call us?..We are friends? We were friends? OR we are friends (you know in front of everyone 'hi' 'hello' kinds..but there is defnitely no connection!)
You have drifted away...just look back..we are still there , intact...just a know your place?There is a gap there..and we wont fill..its your place....

I am not angry.
I am hurt.....

PS: I dont hold any grudge against your girlfriend . Its just that somehow she isnt doing the right thing and you have put a blindfold too.
