My First Wedding Experience...

Image
No, I haven’t gone and married yet. I am still sane enough unlike what people say (logon ka kaam hai kehna…).  This was the first time when my rendezvous with a wedding lasted longer than the salad-to-ice cream journey. It lasted from “I don’t want to marry” part 1 to “I don’t want to marry” part 2 and the final “they lived happily ever after” part.
For the uninitiated, part 1 phase happens when the groom selection begins for the bride-to-be. And part 2 happens the night before marriage when the bride comes back to her senses and sees past the gold sets and make up kit. So it was my cousin’s marriage, my Mom’s elder sister’s daughter (cousin seems so ambiguous a term). To add to the woes of the family, it was the first marriage since my youngest uncle had tied the knot. And he is approaching 50. So we had 3 generations of opinions and choices pouring in from all sides. My grandparents, my uncle and aunts and my cousins were the torchbearers of this gala event. The first one to suffer w…

A Reverse Time Travel Story

Image
This Tag/idea came to me from Sweta, it is originally written by Emily Barton from telcommuter talk.
1. Depending on your age, go back 10, 15, 20, or even more years.
2. Tell us how many years back you have travelled and why.
3. Pretend you have met yourself during that era, and tell us where you are.
4. You only have one "date" with this former self.
5. Answer these questions.

Okay, as we start, what year is it and how old are you?
Hey I am too young to go back 10 years and still be comprehensible.. ha ha kidding. Ok so I am ermm how much is 21 minus 10 yeah.. 11 yrs old studying in std 5 in a co-ed school in Goa. And its (ermm wait 2011-10=2000) yeah its 2000.

1.Would your younger self (YYS, from here) recognize you when you first meet?
No way! She will go :O and say ‘who are you ??!’ I mean she poor child has short cropped hair and a huge figure and is hard to tell from a short fat guy (I really shouldn’t be making fun of myself you know).

2. Would YYS be surprised to discov…

Bedtime Tales

Image
I had a habit of reading books before sleeping (in the blissful era minus my BF-no offence!) and during the school days Goosebumps & Fear Street were my favourite. Picture this-time somewhere about 2am. I am sleeping with the book in hand, nearing the point where the girl enters the attic. Suddenly the room erupts in raucous laughter. The room I am sleeping in.

My younger sister sleeping beside me has chosen that precise moment to laugh in her sleep. Making me jump nearly a foot into the air! Yes, these aren’t bedtime stories that I am going to narrate, rather these are stories that happened after the lights were switched off.

Some people blabber in their sleep but have you ever shared a bed with anyone who talks trigonometry in her sleep? I have. She had opened her eyes God knows when & suddenly I found her staring at me with a very serious expression reciting that tan x equals sin by cos! I nodded my head to show I agree & satisfied with that she closed her …

A New Year Resolution List..no honestly,that's what it is!

Image
Beginning New Year with a new year resolutions is a tradition.I break traditions or twist them.So here I am with another guest post by a very deserving blogger.He's a teenager,your average boy-next-door...until you read his blog & find about about his life & other disasters.Here are his ideas for new year resolutions-(Make sure u share yours later! )

With the New Year right around the corner, I couldn’t put off the resolution making
process anymore. It’s like a tradition that is very hard to break. Not that I follow any of them through but still, I fell uneasy to face a New Year without a plan or a modus operandi, every year I make impossible resolutions like

Must study everyday of this year”- yeah right! I made till 10 days in a row during my 10th examination, that’s the longest streak, YET (ya I am hopeful to study harder, I’m keeping that door open)

Should not use swear words (at least not too often)” – can’t help it, I’m hardwired to curse out loud when I’m furious…
