Why are we scared of talking to a stranger? Forget talking, even passing a smile. The feeble smile, that comes halfway through on seeing a child quickly vanishes when the mother looks at you. It’s almost as if you did a crime by smiling at someone unknown. What is it about strangers that we always guard ourselves against?

I have always let loose myself when it comes to strangers. It’s about opening a part of yourselves to a stranger. He may or may not judge you. She may or may not like you. But if your get the vibes of making a connect just go ahead and do it. I always follow my heart and choose my strangers without a care.

Perhaps which is why the man I chose to spend the rest of my life with was a complete stranger. A stranger who met me in a public transport and started chatting to me out of sheer boredom. I was deeply into my book, but folded it when I saw the man was getting terribly bored and talking to me was his only escape from the treacherous traffic snarls. What began as a polite conversation, moved into a casual friendship, soon to be a four-year long relationship that lasted in exchanging vows. If that day, I had not encouraged the stranger in carrying forward a conversation, I would have lost the most wonderful man I have ever known.

 So open up. Sure, you should be wary of strangers. But never close the possibility of knowing a stranger beyond the boundaries.

Yeah, my Miss Little Sunshine is true-blue Aamir Khan fan, a la her mom.

It seems i was hibernating as far as my blog updates are concerned. A really rocking incident is what pushed by big fat bum to log on to this site and start blogging again.

To begin with MLS is a huge Bollywood fan as far as song and dance movements are concerned. But till date she hasnt ever been completely engrossed in any movies. Last week, we were watching 3 Idiots on TV and MLS too was watching it with the interest of an earnest Bollywood fan. i was feeding her and suddenly out of the blue she starts crying. Her incontrollable sobs run for a good 10 mins. I am left perplexed and I ask if she is feeling unweel, sick or what.

After a good crying, she starts explaing…in between wails “Aamir Khan was crying” And i Burst out laughing. It was this scene where both boman irani and khan is crying post the delivery of the baby. everyone was crying in the movie in that scene. My God, my poor little girl couldnt understand why everyone was choking and she too joined.

So now this little one knows her Aamir from Salman and SRK from Big B.

A lovely fwd

This I got as a fwd and I thought I should post it here for you my Miss Little Sunshine. I want you to always remeber that just because you are addressed as the weaker sex doesn’t mean you are weak. The person whom you choose to spend your life with should adore you for what you are and not expect the world from you. Read on.

Tomorrow you may get a working woman, but you should marry her with these facts as well.

Here is a girl, who is as much educated as you are;
Who is earning almost as much as you do;

One, who has dreams and aspirations just as
you have because she is as human as you are;

One, who has never entered the kitchen in her life just like you or your
Sister haven’t, as she was busy in studies and competing in a system
that gives no special concession to girls for their culinary achievements

One, who has lived and loved her parents & brothers & sisters, almost as
much as you do for 20-25 years of her life;

One, who has bravely agreed to leave behind all that, her home, people who love her, to adopt your home, your family, your ways and even your family ,name

One, who is somehow expected to be a master-chef from day #1, while you sleep oblivious to her predicament in her new circumstances, environment and that kitchen

One, who is expected to make the tea, first thing in the morning and cook
food at the end of the day, even if she is as tired as you are, maybe more,
and yet never ever expected to complain; to be a servant, a cook, a mother,
a wife, even if she doesn’t want to; and is learning just like you are as
to what you want from her; and is clumsy and sloppy at times and knows that you won’t like it if she is too demanding, or if she learns faster than you;

One, who has her own set of friends, and that includes boys and even men at her workplace too, those, who she knows from school days and yet is willing to put all that on the back-burners to avoid your irrational jealousy, unnecessary competition and your inherent insecurities;

Yes, she can drink and dance just as well as you can, but won’t, simply
Because you won’t like it, even though you say otherwise

One, who can be late from work once in a while when deadlines, just like yours, are to be met;

One, who is doing her level best and wants to make this most important,
relationship in her entire life a grand success, if you just help her some
and trust her;

One, who just wants one thing from you, as you are the only one she knows in your entire house – your unstinted support, your sensitivities and most importantly – your understanding, or love, if you may call it.

But not many guys understand this……

Please appreciate “HER”

I hope you do.

Click to view my Personality Profile page

hey, I took this quiz at http://www.mypersonality.info and found the results quite intriguing. The result reads as follows:

ESTJs live in a world of facts and concrete needs. They live in the present, with their eye constantly scanning their personal environment to make sure that everything is running smoothly and systematically. They honor traditions and laws, and have a clear set of standards and beliefs.

ESTJs thrive on order and continuity. Being extraverted, their focus involves organization of people, which translates into supervision. While ENTJs enjoy organizing and mobilizing people according to their own theories and tactically based agendas, ESTJs are content to enforce “the rules,” often dictated by tradition or handed down from a higher authority.”

ESTJs prefer occupations that require an organized, logical, and practical bent that incorporates an effective use of time and resources. They pay attention to the organization’s hierarchy and use policies and procedures to help them to move the tasks along. They like making decisions and dealing with concrete, specific facts.

“responsible, finisher, decisive, norm following, respects authority, punctual, hard working, stiff, self confident”
“…go by experience and that is what counts, not speculation and experimentation, and certainly not fantasy. They keep their feet firmly on the ground and make sure that those under their supervision do the same…”

The Year That is

I like New Year. It brings with it a lot of things. Winter finally sets in and we see misty mornings and foggy evenings. We drown down endless cups of cuppa. The lards of fat are hidden under woolies, which when removed would give any tyre manufacturing unit a run for their money. We love winters for its lazy mornings for you have an excuse to stay in bed for a longer duration. I can put forth umpteen reasons as to why I love winters and the spirit of New Year, a new beginning.


The best part that I like about the period is New Year resolutions. Ya, ya, I know what a futile exercise it is to make resolutions and how we very conveniently break it. My resolutions too don’t last as long as the word itself, yet I enjoy making my list of resolutions every year. It gives me new challenges to look forward to that lie ahead of me. It gives me hope that I have 365 days to achieve things. The list gives me a boost as to what all needs to be done while the sun still shines.


So hereby I give my random list which I hope I will be able to fulfill this year.


  1. Weight-y issues: Most concerning thing…. I have to lose the layers of fat that seems to have stubbornly deposited over every inch of my existence. The tyres have found a permanent home and refuse to wear away. I have to lose weight, period. 

  2. Learn driving: I have been making this resolution, every year, for the past three years. Less said the better about picking up skills on d road. 

  3. Lean a new activity/course/hobby. 

  4. Control my temper: Another resolution that I have been making as far as I can remember making resolutions. 

  5. Pamper myself: Yes I need to splurge on some beauty treatments. I am already overweight and soon will be over the hill. So better do some service to the neighbourhood beauty clinics.

 Will keep you posted on my success rate. Please wish me luck, guys!!!

Chock-a-block week

I am completely screwed this week. Things couldn’t have got worse. The week begins with a wedding, a shifting in the middle of the week, an article to be finished before weekend, a big festival on Friday and a dinner party. On Saturday there is a family puja/dinner to attend. Whoosh!!!! What a week.

Will I come out alive? Why, why, why everything had to be packed into this one weekend. The last week was relatively easier on me. I am not sure whether I will attend the wedding. Don’t know how the shifting will progress with packing and unpacking and a restless toddler in tow. The deadline for the article is Friday and I have absolutely no idea whether the people whom I have written to will write back. There’s Onam on Friday and a party on Friday evening. God, tussi great ho!
