Mumbai, for me is never new, I went to Mumbia when it was Bombay and I was three months old. Its a filthy city, has Asia largest slum.... but it lives up its name of being The City of Dreams. Initial years when I used to make the periodic Mumbai trips was because, my Dad's Masi used to stay there. But after 2004, there was no great reason to go to Mumbai. In 2004, I had gone for my admissions purposes.
But, 2006, summer bought me a week of holidays and a chance of spending that week with my boyfriend and cousins in Mumbai. Btw, Shayon, my boyfriend stays in Mumbai. But those were holidays... and this year, I saw the true flavour of Mumbai.... I travelled in buses.... and travelled mostly alone. Why? Well.... that is coz, I had gone to work with IOC's law deptt. in Mumbai for a month.
The experience, is worth the office hours that I put in. No it was not the partying... it was just a sense of feeling like grown up... a sense of being independent that really mattered to me.
Now I am looking forward to the next year... so that I can live my month...of being just me again...!!!

Its 11.40 in the night, tomorrow morning Shayon is supposed to land here in Delhi. This whole trip was developed within a week. And trust me, from the time, destiny chose this time to be our meeting time, the drama...the emotional highs...and what not started. And till Shayon does not reach Bombay, and in the safety of his house, I think that this real life drama is gonna make me dizzy.
My dears Exams got over today, and thanks to a few friends and our dear Dada, he is coming to meet me. The catch of the situation is that, he is supposed to catch a flight at 6.30 tomorrow morning and his train, that is supposed to take him to calcutta is more than god forsaken hours late. First, it was decided that he'll take a car to Kolkatta, but then that was turning out to be additional expense... and then we thought that the best way would be to cancel his ticket and get him on another flight. And just as I was on my endeavour to cancel his flight, while talking to him we heard the Magical Announcement that his train is finaaly ready to take him to Kolkotta. Even now as I write this post, in my heart I am not being overtly jubiliant...I am just praying that he is able to catch his flight on time. And that when I get up tomorrow morning, I know that I am gonna finally meet him.
Thanks for getting the train there. Now Please Please.... Please no more delays or Mishaps.... Just let us meet w/o anything catastrophic happening.... c'mon, You always listen to people who are in love... so please Dont make any exceptions now....!!!

Well... the week that was... was great. I had gone to my Di's place for the weekend. I managed to meet three of Shayon's three freinds... actually two of his girl friends and his best friend Vijay. It were some cute hours. We had so much of fun... talking and getting to know each other. I just hope that I dint blabber tooooo much.
Theen office has been pretty usual.... work, an the usual bitching that goes between the my boss and the lady that sits in the next cubicle. Its kinda fun, sitting in a semi govt office trying to figure out what people actually are doing....!!!
Home is great.... the maid cooks really well... but she thinks that she is the malkin....!!!
The weather here is great. Never in the years that I have been to Mumbai, I have experienced such awesome weather. Its just too beautiful.
I too am great.
Rest later.... Cheers....!!!

Though... Arushi had told me that Naveen Bhaiya is gonna come.... I never thought that it was gonna be today. So right in the morning, when I woke up, I found that Naveen Bhayia was right there.... and he gave me a ride to office. He is pretty excited and very nervous about the baby that is gonna came in a few months.
Rest all is great though.... just a twinge.... that is all. Wish I could expand on that. But I'll just let be.

Nothing as a matter of fact was blue, because you see in Mumbai, the buses are also red. Ok, enough jokes abot the blues and the reds. Work.... yeah I was at work...today. And I have to go tomorrow. In such a beautiful city, it takes an effort to get out of the bed and go to the office... I would rather go to the beach....
Well.. work was good. I was making my report on the files that I did on friday. It looked like that I was working... Finally. But the day was good. It was a very relaxed day, after the whole lot of parting on the weekend. Even Karan Bhaiya came home early.... So what did I do in the evening?? Mom, I excercised. I went for a walk.... and it was very beautiful. Trust me. I just hope unlike last time, I dont gain so much of weight when I go back.
That is it guys.... looking fwd to yet another day tomorrow....!!!!
Thursday, July 26, 2007
Anyways, the fun lets say is continuing.... I went to Shweta Di's house today. Met Mannat, di and Jiju... it always a pleasure meeting them... and then these guys took me to the Cadbury Day's Party in the Hotel, Taj Lands End. The Party was really nice, with Boman Irani and Aasma Band performing for us live. I danced with the Band guys n Gals.... unfortunately I have forgotten my camera at home... so no pics.... But yeah for Arushi's collection I have a few autographs.
Ok, here is a lil confession that I have to make, Arushi darling.... tonight I really missed you. You would have enjoyed the party to the hilt. It was fun. But like you commented on my last post, aapka bhi time aayega. I am sure that you are gonna have more fun.
Right now... I guess I should be changing my clothes...and turning in... have a pretty heavy Sunday tomorrow.
I started my day pretty early. I reached office at around 10...got the hang of the route that has to be taken and all. Office is pretty cool... a really cozy family like atmosphere prevails where ppl are always talking and the phones are never silent. In midst of it all.... I read thru almost 2 5 files... all in a days work huh.....
Hmmmm..... it was raining very heavily when I reached back home. I tried getting a new sim for my phone so that I can cut the roaming crap... but the Sim is not ready entertain me... as yet.
The Night... was great. Karan Bhiaya took me to his friend's place for dinner. Together we were like 10-12 of us...and all thrwn in randomly...all came thru knowing one or the other... and almost everybody was new to each other. There was the booze... loads of music... dim lights and awesome food.... and trust me.. I missed Shayon so much tonight.
And then to burn off the food...and shake a leg...we went to a club.... it was in Hayatt.... and I have not seen a friday night more hip and happening...the place was jam packed and Urmila Matondkar was freaking out with her friends. Came bak around 3 ish.... and now... I am packing off... coz... i am drop dead.... TIRED....!!!
I am joining Indiann Oil Corpn's law dept tomorrow Morning.... and I am very nervous...and absolutely excited.
Pray that all goes well....!!!

Nothing eventful... just looong wait for them to get over...which finally happened. And the much awaited holidays are on. But trust me.... I am having a hard time.... Coz I have nothing to do. On the very first day of my hols I got up at 7 in the morning..and did nothing....!!!
And today at the end of the second day.... I have done nothing significant either.... got up and then slept again...!!! How cool is that...!!!
I know many of you out there would love to do nothing... but then lemme warn you that.. doing nothing for one day, two days can be fun... but when the prospect is pretty bleak of oing nothing at all... then its a scary prospect....!!!
Lets c what happens next...!!!

Well... as of now I know that Shayon has done the change... and Karma too has replaced his header...and since The Wall Mag is under em it was bound to change.
So here I follow the suit and change my header too...!!! I hope that it is representing the name of my blog well.... comments please??

It’s just been a few days that I got a new mobile phone that’s got a FM radio as well. Since then, I guess apart from the 6 hours that I sleep, my poor companion has been over-worked for the rest 18 hours, every damned day :-P. Well, yesterday, just while I was leaving office, the RJ on Big FM (92.3MHz) was discussing the various pet names couples use to call each other in private (Ahem!). There were Tullus, Taklus, Dholus and numerous Jaans. People were just asked to call up the radio station and come out with all the “love names” and if they think urs is mushy enuff, u get to win Bingo! supply for one whole year. Trust me, it wasn’t Bingo that caught my fancy. Suddenly, I just turned all romantic and full of love for my gf. I felt I too should participate and tell them something that we (me n my gf, u idiot!) too use to call each other, weneva we r in da best of moods (I ain’t talking of the condom brand, matey).
Well, just as life has it, after trying for almost 45 minutes, I just happened to get thru the line. Yet, there were huge disturbances on the other side and despite trying furiously for whole 50 seconds, to hear the other party, all went in vain and it got disconnected! I was frustrated but not yet down. Within 15 minutes, I got thru again, but to my amazement and furore, at the same time, my phone said the call lasted for 5 seconds and I cudn’t hear a single word! Now, if u think I kept trying on again, u r grossly mistaken, friend! That was the height of my patience and just flicked the station *LoLz*.
Now that I look back to it, what all people do for the sake of, what they call, Love!
P.S. – Just thought of posting this ‘coz of Sakshi and her younger sis’s relentless campaigning for The TajMahal, which is considered to be the epitome of love!!

Today I had to collect my roll number from college. Yesterday, I had gone to college for the same purpose, but I could only get the clearance and had to go again today. It so happened that Delhi woke up to a lovely Saturday morning which had oads of rain and amazing weather in store. Thanks to the down pour mom, dad, Arushi n I went to collect my roll number. Towards my college there are numerous malls and ma n pa were wanting to see those. So after giving them the tour of the mall and having lunch in the food court, as we were leaving... I bumped into a very good friend of mine from college. He too was just coming from college after collecting his roll number. He saw me with my parents- and right in the middle of the mall when I was introducing them... he bent down and touched their feet...saying namaste to them. Though the incident was a lil embarrassing at that time.... but now that I think about it... it was rather cute. He btw is a junior in college and absolutely an adoirable person.... and that action of his made me remember incidents that changed my life almost three years back... weird na... how lil things provoke memories of the past....???

No, even before writing this blog I did not make my mind do a racing of thoughts that have be put down on my blog. This blog is an impromptu blog...and I have no clue as to what I should be writing so that this blog becomes readable.....
Let me try and sum up my thoughts after one week of getting my third semester results. Yup, last week my results got declared. Though my marks remained pretty static..... my positin in class came down as the highest total was like lots of marks ahead of me. But I still remain amongst the top few in my class. This result, upset me alot, becaus I realised that I got caught in the web of over confidance and therefore.... I have been trying to do some sort of introspection.... but unfortunately I am pretty bad at realising my true innerself, and subjecting my weakness to the introspection mode. A senior in college, who is my sole notes provider, and someone who gives me SOLID advice told me.... that I should be happy because I am maintaing a pretty good average which is hardly possible in this college. This lifted my spirit up a lil...but I have put myself in the top gear as far as the coming exams are concerned.
On the personal front, I can see stormy waters ahead. Maybe its because I am acting like an immature idiot or maybe the waters are really troubled and we aren't able to figure what exactly is wrong. Talking about relationships.... I kind of have noticed a pattern around me, that when things are going wrong in one relationship... thanks to induction or whatever...I see most of the relationships in troubled waters. But then as they say End defines the means.... it normally gets over in a day or two, and love is in the air again.
Rest all is pretty usual. I am just hoping that this semester goes off fine. It was after a short and sweet sem....wish me luck.

My house that is still having rennovations going on....is also on the final stages. That's the reason the comp and the net connection are back into action. Once things get settled here....its gonna be a hectic life...once more.
Almost a month off from college has been attributed to me. Though out of that month long off about a week off was given by the college authorities themselves. I need to go back to work. My boss is wanting me back, so Monday onwards its gonna be office again.
Finally it seems that life is getting back onto track....the only thing that is amiss amongst all...is that I am broke and I hardly get to talk to Shayon. That is pretty frustrating, but isnt that all about life and times???

This 5 day event is celebrated more like the annual week of college and since it so happens that our college has Law and Management departments its a competation amongst our departments. This it seems that charges up everybody from our HODs to the entire faculty. They dance on our heads so that we can prepare a dance that can win our department a prize. Tomorrow the madnesss..... begins and it seems that already people are charged up...what with they deciding how to cheer for their departments and what not......
Anyways- I know that this time... I am gonna have fun... and make sure that I win all the competations that I go into....!!!!!!

But surprisingly, he is not ready to give what the Supreme court is asking for....that is correct stats. Believe it or not- The OBC quota increase that had been proposed was based on stats that were extremely obscure. In a country where the population increases at such a whooping rate.... how can such a thing be implemented with old stats?? Especially when there was so much of bawall over the issue??
It was Diwali and holi for the Youth for Equality... finally as they say- Justice might just be done...

I cant throw in a tantrum because I am supposed to b this big girl.. and when I do things that are meant to be done by big girls I am sushed down because I have not yet reached that stage.... Oh lord... someone help me.... Its just so so not done.... and trust me... its really hard being a teenager....ooopsss even when you are big its really hard... cmon....I am sure more than half of the people out there agree....!!! Whatever.....

They are thirteen year olds and have just discovered the joys of being a teenager... finding crushes losing them... and well.. making me relive my teenage.. and all that I have missed in my teenage years.... Hmmm ofcourse I am the obstruction to their secret talks... but I dunno for some reason I am more adored than other siblings of the friends... prolly because I am being more of a friend to my sis....
Last time they were here..... my parents couldnt sleep that night... I was at my friends place and Shayon was due next day in the morning... and Oh my gosh.... I have no clue what is store for me tonight...
I living in a haze as of now.....

Wednesday, March 14, 2007
So what are my expecttaions-Absolutely nothing.... its a 2.5 month long semester thanks to all the postponing that happened with the odd sem exams. The only law subeject that I have this sem is Human Rights. And rest all is the usual art crap. But then this is the last semester that I'll be dealing with this art subjects.
And the reality- Stark and blinding. Its not easy paying back for the wrong decisions that you make in life. And therefore its even harder studying in an obscure college that is backed by one of the very unwanted university.
I just hope that my stark reality does not blind me so much that I cant see where this future is leading me. I have made a decision- That I have to manauver my life to get the best out of it... its not the easiest thing that can one do but then- No gains without any pains.

Anyways My exams got over finally. I mean normally they are supposed to finish off in like 10 days flat.. but this time they were streched off like a rubberband. I am satisfied with what I did... I hope the dear examiner too is happy with my answers.
And what exactly have I been doing to celebrate my much awaited freedom?? Ahem.... nothing... if grocery shopping is included in doing "Something" then I sure accomplished alot. Actually, the hitch being in college is that at times you sit down and realise that you are so free- NOT THE PARTY FREEDOM... as in there is no inveriable pressure on you to study... unconciously you realise that your parents hard earned money has gone into the devils trampig grounds.. that is the college courtyard... and that if you dont become cacpable of returning that money to your parents- man you'll be feeling so guilty all your life.... so exams or no exams.. you study and dont study at your own risk....
So this is not exactly the taste of freedom that I am or you are lookink for...
By the way... if anybody is interested.. I happen to finish a 150 page book in like two hours.. so that is the feat that I have achieved as of today... and not to forget the grocers shop....hey shayon its the same place where we picked up the juices...
No I am not out of the "Life of my Pie" phase either.. and my parents have started dreading that I am going crazy coz.. all I keep on doing is telling em that I am bored... my dad's suggestion is horse riding.. my mothers...is still the same... go work out.... why dont they tell me to go and party??
(DUMB QUESTION: You need to have company to party...look around there is no one...)
Alright- Day two of freedom cliche is a sunday... and lets see... what happens.. keep tuned in to "Pie of my BORING life..."
Thursday, March 8, 2007
Anyways... I am jobless, my exams get over on the 10th and my so called classes start three days later. But then what?? The same ol life- I get up at 7.30 in the morning leave home at 8 and reach college by 9.30, attend classes till 12.30 and then head back home. And if that is not enough I'll come back home to a sister who's exams are on. My best friends exams are on... and there is nothing for me to do. Ofcourse I have an assignment to finish, with 7th April being the deadline. I'll prolly have a college fest too in the same phase... but trust me I am tired of being the one man army... I am nerdy... and they want me to dance in the fest and win the gold medal there too. All of a sudden, I feel that I am leading too normal a life.... till a few months back I was over satisfied with my life... and today that satisfaction has vanished into thin air.. I want to do something different... I want to run away from my house and without carrying any guilt... go on a road trip, a car trip.... any trip.... but the hitch is that I DONT want my Parents haggeling along... I dont want that factore of predictibility anymore..... I know that I say... that if say it too loud then life would do something really exciting... but somehow all those binges of excitement that dear life has thrwon on me happen to have a negative energy oozing out from der... I want some positive adventure...
I want to run away from a life that has become a fight between sleeping the whole day and checking out mails in the hope of getting that one reply from the damned companies that I have applied to... and then there is my dear mother who is so worked up on making me work out.... I know that this is gonna just help me.. look good.. n et all.. but temme whats good, when you do it either alone or with your mom.. who happens to be a master in Yoga and can actually taunt you to death if you cant do it right...!!!

But who cares... or I care...its just that Hindi is not getting into my head and I cant seem to accept the fact that its been over a week and I havent gotten any reply from the places that I had applied in for my intern. Worst still, after 28th of feburary. I have no absolutely no source of income whatsoever and I have no clue how the hell am I gonna mange to shift to a lifestyle of a penniless person person from that of a 3000 rupees a month pocket money lifestyle. Do not gimme that expression... I have never in my life gotten pocket money. This money well.. as it happens was the nominal amount I used to get for teaching the kids in the centre. As per my last post things have soured out and apart from that I have to do an intern..(this does not pay).
Wondering what lifstyle am I talking about- one and a half years I have almost got a top up in my phone daily because I have to talk to my boyfriend. I talk to him everyday.. for almost a hour. But it seems that now that would have to go down ALOT.. and its a scary prospect. Because in his college lights are off most of the time, and he has to do lots of stuff and cant come online as per my time table and neither can I meet him online as per his timetable... or probbaly we can work out something.. its damn scary.. and I just cant figure out a thing...!!!!
What am I gonna DO???

Well... these are those spiritual questions for which the yogis do sanyas for years.... for finding the reasons for the existence of their bodies on this mighty earth...!!!
Well... for me.. I have made life simpler, I am the very first "Sakshi"/witness of the love that my parents have for each other. I came in their lives to give them joy... to make em realise that their love has finally culminated. And tomorrow that is in future... looong time from now, when I'll have kids.. then.. I'll know that life is beautiful even with diapers and tantrums.
And well.. my reason for being here on earth... hello?? I just happen to be an amzing person.. and that is good enough reason for being what I am...
Isnt this much simpler than freezing on the Himalayas...;)

The hardest part about Change is the change itself…. When you are so used to doing something and that change, it alters everything…..from the way you see things to how you perceive things to how it ultimately makes you adapt to things that are new to you…!!!
To be very frank it was very hard for me to change my way of looking at things… or rather my way of doing things. But one thing led to another and I finally managed to change and that change mind you bought with itself lot of hope and good luck. I have a knack of keeping things from the past… something that might be responsible for making me a clingy person. I had almost all my books and notes from like 5th standard till 12th standard stored up for reference… u know, “The what if I need them sometime in the Future….” syndrome.
But finally I let go of it all… because I finally put a fact in my head that The so called reference that might be in the future has no time efficiency and it may be today or it maybe never.
These little things that changed me, also made me throw away my past that always made me realise that I have been a loser… and that losers do not dream. So much so, this little exercise that I did to clear away the mess in my study table cupboard cleared my head to an extent that I finally made myself a promise that whatever happens I will not ruin my present or my future with my attitude of clinging to things that cant be changed and thinking about those I’ll ruin my chances of having a good time now and tomorrow.
It was very hard.. and there were no visible results for almost two years, but today as I am sitting in my veranda, soaking the sun, I look back to the two years that have gone by, I realise that the whole thing started by me pulling away all my guards and sharing a part of the pie of my life to my present boyfriend, an acquaintance then. For all the moments that we spent together just talking about our pasts, and how to improve our present, we fell in love, and I who was just so not in to long distance thingy, fell in a LDR.. and that trust me changed everything for me….!!!
And I am very happy.
Like somebody famously said;
“The only thing that is constant is change”
Are you ready to change… ??
