Mumbai Salsa...!!!

One of the most important thing that happened to me in year that is running past me is the Visit to MUMBAI....!!!
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...!!!

The Wedding Vows..(woes)

One of the thing that really was highlighted this year was- Weddings...!!!

Three of my cousins got married in the span of 1 month... so much so.... me being next in line is very much anticipated...!!

Not only cousins, it seemed that a lot of people of my generation got married this year... and how many are gonna last...well... that is a question that nobody can answer.

One of my cousins got married in Feburary this year and well... she already gotten divorced and is pretty sad that things din work out. Not only her, all of us were shocked to the core that things dint work out for her. She is smart,witty...and extremely good looking...!!

But, whatever said and done, weddings in the family are just an awesome affair... I mean... its so cool dressing up and all. Apart from that you eat drink and dance... and everybody is so happy...!!!

I have such a huge family... that is to include my extended family loads of weddings that happened in front of me.. and each wedding has its own special memory.....!!

But this year, the most memorable wedding that I had was of my cousin Shubhra. She about three years older to me. Her wedding was out of station in Chandigarh...and my entire extended family(paternal) was there. My bua, who stays and works in Chennai, made an effort to come and attend the wedding there... it was a blast. Though, in the entire wedding, everybody kept on asking, since I am next, when am I getting married...!!!

The wedding season this time was truely all happiness....!!! Lets c whats in the next year...!!!

The Year is at its Fag end... ALREADY...!!

Wow its almost mid December.

The last post that I wrote was feels like it was ages ago. But then a lot of things do keep you busy and then you really feel guilty about not updating your page at all.

Neways, Just like all good things to an end... (almost.. love I hope doesnt come to end ever), this year too is speeding away and soon, we would be seeing the new dawn in the 2nd leap year of the new century. Its just amazing that time runs away like spped of light or what... it just seems like yesterday that this year had started and I had made some resolutions... I don't think that I stuck to em at all... but then arent the new year resolutions meant to break. Its really commendable that you keep up to your new year resolutions.

Well... as the tradition goes that when December comes, I usually start the countdown to the new year and rewind the previous year. And I always ask my readers to please share their experiences of the previous year with me on my comments.

The year of Bond is almost at its end... this year was hailed as a super lucky year..and to certain extent that maybe so.

Keep coming back to catch the nostalgia of the year that has gone by... no its not gonna be statistical its just gonna be how I see it.. and ofcourse your input are welcome.....!!!
