Wow!!! I saved some time..

On the previous post I promised some photos from the journey but sorry , the problem still persists so I won't be able to upload them... Apologies, but I can share some of the experiences of the journey instead. 

It was a very hectic short trip where I had to attend the festival as well as update my documents. The extended office holiday was driving me crazy. Time is precious for everyone isn't it. So a few tricks can go a lot of good to you what say???

Long time back when I was moving away from my home I took away all my original documents with me. I made sure that I leave a set of xerox of all my documents back. So on this trip it worked as a saviour. When I needed any certificate I just pulled one from the set and I was sorted.

I always keep my identity card and some passport size photo with me. Well you never know when they might come handy.

A small purse doesn't suit me. I love carrying a big tote fully armed but I hate it when others dump all their belonging into my bag!…

Been to my village!!!

Oh God had been a great trip to my village. It was so refreshing , a round of detox session I guess!!!! And I was stranded of my net connection as well.... But no complaining I was a little break for me as well!!! I got to catch up with some uninterrupted sleep after a long time. I know I am trying to get acquaint with my new place guys!!!!
I had gone to attend "NUAKHAI" guys. Its like a harvesting festival , where we thank God as well as our ancestors for blessing us and proving with an awesome harvest!!!! Its like the starting of a new year I guess....

It is a sort of a small family reunion as well. Of course , everybody have moved to the city to earn some big bucks. But still I like the quiteness of the country side... Its like connecting with your soul!!!!


In India alone it is known by many names like Pongal, Baisakhi, etc. It depends on different region.


I am sure you all might be celebrating such festivals on your country side. Do share it with us. It will be awesome....

EXTENDED SUMMER!!!!!

Its almost an extended summer this year. Blazing and scorching everything on Earth. Its September already and its seems like may. It is really unbelievable!!! I know rain season seems a little hoch-poch to some but it has its own beauty. It might be a little straineous when outside but sitting by the window and sipping a cup of coffee is really wonderful. Practically too, we get our food due to rain guys!!!!

I remember, when we were kids and we used to visit our aunts place during dussera, it was so much fun. Visiting various puja pandal wearing new clothes is what we all carved for through the year. We used to become angry because our new clothes used to get hide under the sweater!!! Yes, it used to be so colder at that time that ,shedding the sweater was an absolutely bad option. Now such a thing is the thing of the past. Now going on a sweater shopping spear is a total waste. 

Now I think that rainy season too shall be out of the calender very soon... Half of the year has already tur…

THE RED MONSTER!!!!!

 In today's world the most monsterious one could think off are the machines. I remember when I was a kid, the sight of an approaching truck used to seem to me as a big monster with a flaring eyes and nose!!!! It was like , coming to grab hold of me or eat me up!!!!

I think there are generally two types of monsters. The one which runs a chill through your spine and the other are the one which are ugly and you hate them the most. While living in a city like Mumbai there might be so many monsters which can fall in the second category but the commenest of all is its traffic!!!! It feels like we live on roads!!! Now common don't say that half of your time is not wasted commuting. And to make matter worse is the weather!!! You end up almost like a roasted chicken!!!

Government is on its way to rescue us. There is a proposal to start an altogether new bus corridor. Isn't it sounds interesting. This move shall surely help to reduce traffic congestion a bit. But still I doubt if it w…

Marraige party.....

I might sound boring but what is true is true!!! I literally hate one of those parties.... I think, I don't fit into any category on the type of person present in the party. Well what I can say confidently that I am a active observer and I enjoy sitting in a small corner of my own and observing everyone. What I hate the most is the unnecessary attention you attract towards yourself. I guess, I am more on the shy side...  Anyways, let me take you on this journey, which I would like you to be a part of!!!  I hope you shall enjoy it the most....

The main center of attraction is The Bride , obviously. I wonder, who the bride saves herself from so many piearing eyes!!! It might be making them concious and shy as well. Its good because it adds to their beauty isn't it???  Well, some brides may be loving all the attention, after all , they are the star of the show isn't it???? I am the one always at their service, in case one needs one.

The next one are the bride's sister/s....…

S.O.S....

The world is turning into a scary place. This have turned into a grim reality which cannot be ignored any further . The scene seems to be straight out of a sci- fi movie where the world is about to end and people in a bid to avoid it undertake a mass movement . It is being said that ,after World war2 this is one such immigration we are experiencing!!!!

 It took another disturbing picture of a child to rock the world back to its senses and realise that this problem is much bigger than what was thought of..

In this war of taking hold of the power , people have stopped realizing that all one wants is peace and prosperity around. A big revolution is not possible without the masses consent because it is for the mass you are taking such steps. One thing should be taken into consideration that constant fear leads to fearlessness and the bomb is ticking to go off at any moment.

My heart goes to them who are the unnecessary sufferers .

            GOD BLESS EVERYONE....

Behave cynical!!!!

World have changed for good in number of ways. Now we can connect with a lot of people....of course virtually!!! zoom around the world faster, learn a new trait sitting right in your own vicinity and the list is endless isn't it???  World was never so fast and facinating. The world has become friendlier . There is no difference between class, sex,religion,creed. We fell like one big community at least virtually!!!

While the virtual space presents a glossy picture but the reality is something different. Turn the news channel or read a news paper, the scenario is completely opposite. The barbarious face of vice is unimaginable isn't it??? I doubt whether we have a future or not. Or it is the sign of the end of the world.

Well, this is something very serious. The more I think about it the more I fell chocked up. So I have started to follow the theory of denial in some sorts!!!!

Some people think that cartoons which were shown earlier was dillusioning children and now the shows are f…
