Hey there 2017,welcome :)

Hello hello all, first things first, Wishing all my WordPress family a very ”happy new year 2017”. May you all have a kickass, fun filled and lovely year ahead nurtured with loads of love, travel, adventures and new possibilities.

2016 for me hasn’t been the best of years.But yes it made me tough mentally.Here are the lessons I learned and look forward carrying with me this year and for the rest of my life. 🙂

The blogging life:

I followed my passion. I started blogging and right now my mind is filled with so much contentment when I jot this sentence ( probably my favourite sentence in the entire post ).I followed my heart and entered into the world of blogging anonymously. .I have a name and identity but I feel so thankful to be a part of this life,t he blogging life.Nobody knows me, except the fact that I and a 20 something Indian girl. Amidst the chaos of judging people on the basis of their looks, clothes, profession, shoes, write, and so many innumerable things, but a writer is above all such pity small things in life.It teaches you a lot. Blogging taught me that anyone can write, write their heart out.No matter what it is.Let your words be your voice. This is my say on the subject. Pretty simple.This year I wish to buy a domain of my own name.How cool is that !! 🙂

Met two beautiful people here: Shehanne Moore and Sasha here and that has been the best part of my entire blogging journey so far.

If you don’t love what you do, then please don’t do it, that is the mantra

Since 1994 to 2016  and counting, I have always managed to maintain poise and composure in my life somehow. I  solely credit my parents, sibling and a few friends for it. And I hope it will remain sorted forever, simply stress-free.There were so many times when I had to face hardships, but I have learnt to cope up with then hence regaining my equilibrium.I learnt that it is so very important to take risks in life and move ahead with them.Sometimes there are decisions you take that turn out to be the incorrect ones but only you have the power and aura to correct them and hence never lose your poise and calm.This has always helped me to sail through the darkest times.Okay, my life is not one hell of a sham, I don’t  have many friends, I don’t get to party every weekend or travel every month. but I have my own charms, I love sweets and I eat them on regular basis. I love to shop and at times when I have no place to go, I end up wearing all my new clothes and crocs at home, but I love it, and I am happy with it all.I never miss my chocolates and often eat out.I am a foodie and I love trying and tasting new cuisines every now and then.

I learned to paint my eyes with an eyeliner, of course, 😀

Enough of ML’S(MORAL LECTURES) now.Let me tell you something funny. I know it’s silly but coming it from someone like me who is not at into makeup and stuff is a big thing. My sis gifted me a lipstick and liner last year and voila, finally, I know how it’s done.Boys, you won’t get it but girls are surely going to relate with this 😀

It’s good to cry sometimes/it’s cool to cry sometimes 

A friend of mine once told me that I cry over small issues and isn’t strong enough.These were the exact words.I literally felt heartbroken because coming this from someone who is very close to me can be a big deal.At that moment I didn’t say a word, rather I laughed. I know I cry sometimes but that’s what normal human do.This doesn’t make me a weak human. I cry and let go of that particular emotion that bothers me and this is immediately followed by a fresh start.Rather sobbing and lamenting all day, it’s better to sit alone and cry for a few minutes and emerge out like a lioness.All set for the challenge with a stronger vibe and faith.

Life is all about how you take it and Luck is what you make it.

TV Series I watched in 2016

I wanted to write this post for a long time and finally, as I sit lazily on my couch with my laptop on my lap doing something I love the most, writing down all sorts of crap on earth. But what I am about to write is totally worth it. Not only me but most of you out there will surely relate to me on this.

Before I write let me tell you beforehand and I was never into any English TV series in college. The only one I followed was Arrow. Somehow living in a girls hostel I was always surrounded by the sounds of all sorts of TV shows played on laptops. While GOT music could be heard from the room next to me clearly some song from FRIENDS could be heard from the other. Basically, noises of all sorts of different shows could be heard. Amidst this, I could never push myself to even try to watch these shows. I clearly remember I once tried watching “How I met your mother” and I got bored haha. So then I never tried until I started working.

So here is my list of most favourite and so on along with a small story behind the show

1.The FLASH

This one no matter what, will always remain my favourite and I absolutely love Barry Allen. Nobody suggested me to follow this series. Rather, once I was just browsing IMDB looking for upcoming episodes of the Arrow when I saw this at the bottom left corner along with a few other shows. How instantly it caught my attention. Since then to now nothing has changed. My love for the show remains intact. Currently, the season in running in its the third season and I am so looking forward to the upcoming episodes.                flash

2.Game of Thrones

No surprises in this one. More than 50 people have suggested me the show, few of them even forced me into watching the show. My sister literally used to nag every second-day about the same, but to no avail. The show had completed five seasons already when one day after work my roommate and I were discussing Big boss when all of a sudden she started discussing GOT to which I had a blank reply: D. Without a delay, I told her I haven’t seen the show and she was awestruck. I felt like a petty criminal at that point.
got2

It was then that I took her advice and started following the show and covered the five seasons within a week. It was so addictive and next year I’m looking forward to buying a complete box set of the same. Daenerys Targaryen is my favourite character followed by Arya Stark.  

3.Quantico

I solely followed this show right from day one because of Priyanka Chopra and loved the first season totally. Though the series is a bit over exaggerated, but somehow the twists and turns always catch my attention and I never miss an episode. The show completely runs in its second season.                                  quantico

4.Legends of tomorrow

Since I love flash and arrow and almost every superhero this definitely had to catch my attention. Time travels, superpowers, spaceships, future had always fascinated me so without a doubt I love this series too. It is a spun off from Arrow and a bit of flash so one need to watch the arrow (specifically) for a better understanding of the characters and the show on the whole.               the-legends-of-tomorrow

5.Justice League

I have finished all the 5 seasons of Justice League somehow this year. Since it was an animated series I had grown up watching in Hindi, I somehow wished to watch it all over again in Hindi but somehow got all the episodes in Hindi. Even though the episodes aren’t relatable I suffer from STICK TO THE SEQUENCE SYNDROME (while watching a show only ) so I followed it episode wise sequentially.Watched it while travelling locally waiting around and loves every bit of it.
justice-league

Also with the coming year, I am looking forward to watching Stranger things, supergirl, Homeland and The SIMPSONS.

A pair of socks

Hello Hello

I have been off lately due to my hectic schedule and lots of commitments but then this is something I couldn’t resist writing about.

Confused between what to wear in the first place.So I guess this is better 

Okay so as it happened I got a chance to meet one of my very old buddy(obviously very near and dear to me )today.We went to a nearby coffee shop (obviously to have coffee ).
I get awestruck & amused whenever I see people ordering masala tea/ green tea/lemon tea in coffee outlets ..Haha.All I can do is giggle about it.It’s their choice.But the whole concept amuses me.😂

I am not a coffee addict, to be honest during winters as I have got this obsession for cold coffee with ice-cream over hot coffee.And people like me who catch a cold easily have to avoid the former one and adapt the latter.

So a bit of caffeine once in a fortnight is fine with me.Winters here in mountains are very chilly.So people like me have to think twice before gulping some ice cubes and ice cream.

I prefer tea over hot coffee but of course not in some coffee shop.The whole idea seems so lame to me.

So  I ordered my usual cappuccino and buddy ordered his favourite choco frappé.Meanwhile, we were giggling and fighting over our usual lame stuff that happened all these months.After all, we met after 3-4 months.Of course, I was busy cracking  “bad PJs” and he was busy making my fun as ever.

While we were busy drinking our coffees adamant to share them with one another his Einstein brain (pun intended) recalled that he got something for me.

GIFT omg I had a sparkle in my eyes.I love getting gifts.I mean who doesn’t.

So there was my gift .Of course not wrapped ,but then packed in a plastic wrap with vibrant colors .And as he handed it to me I somehow couldn’t resist smiling .He handed me a pair of socks and said ,”This will be a major help to sail through winters,I know you catch cold easily”.

I could resist smiling and literally felt speechless at that moment. This was the cutest gesture by him and the nest gift ever this Christmas.Glad he know how much I hate winters and got me something keeping it in mind.

Yes, I’m not a winter person and the whole concept of thandii(cold) brings a chill down my spine.

There is something about childhood friends I guess that nothing can erase.Even if we might not get  chance of talking to them daily for  hours ,things are just the same and crazy whenever you meet them.

Let me know about your childhood friends.I would love to hear your stories ..Mark my words when I say I would love to hear since not only I am a good talker, I am an excellent listener (or at least I am delusional by the fact that  I am).Haha, I am Hippocratic at times.Ought to give every sort of explanation.

Love

Black bag!

It’s high time to break the stereotype and come of of our comfort zone .This article draws attention towards the most basic problem in Idea.. After all Its just a sanitary napkin and not bomb. No need to feel ashamed of it..#Respectourbody

Sasha's Writings

I really don’t know how many women will like this post and some might judge me even,but i don’t give a f**k!.So today i went to a general grocery shop which is not so big , but enough to buy groceries,so i asked the shopkeeper forsanitary napkins(which means pads in general use). A middle aged woman who was standing beside me felt shy and started to seeing away as if she is unaware if the menstrual cycle and period!I gave an irritated and dirty look to her.So this shopkeeper wrapped the packet in the newspaper and said “there is no black colour carry bag,is it okay if i give in transparent carry bag”. I was little bit irritated and surprised by his question and said “Bhayya!there is nothing to hide it,it is the same way as the men use shaving cream ,we use sanitary napkins, everyone are aware of…

Wish I were a kid again

 

Wish I were a kid again

Hi, guys !I am a 90’s kid, and most the 90’s kids out there will surely relate to this post after reading it.

A few days back my little tiny cousin asked me to give her my phone, I had a feeling that she wanted to play Candy crush or agent Dash which I suppose are her favourite games.But this was the biggest mistake probably I did.

I was wronged by her the other minute.I saw her holding my minion covered phone in her hand stretching her arms and trying to pout.

What the heck, I am 22 and still can’t pout properly, I must admit that her pout was freaking awesome.

I giggled slightly for I had no intention of disturbing her.Maa who was sitting right next to me) and I exchanged glances.Badly we wanted to burst into laughter but somehow controlled. I complained her about not letting me click photos from the old camera we had(I sound so old, oh whatever  ).

Walking down the memory lane I realise how much the world has changed since then.I was 10  when my dad bought his first Nokia 1100 with an Escotel Sim(acquired by Idea now), while we were on our trip to Goa .Oh how pathetic I was in playing space odyssey and snakes 😦

My sister and I used to click our pictures with the camera (only after seeking permission from mom a thousands of time) .How I wish we knew that there is this thing call mirror picture ,at least we could have been together in a frame.I remember how we used to jump to our neighbors terrace to get a different view just for the sake of photos.

There were no selfies, no pout and real friendship.We were was too far from virtual reality.Evenings when we played kho kho, badminton, cricket,stapoo ,7stones.Those were the days.My little cousin surely knows how to pout, but she doesn’t know what 7stones is.

We knew the joy that a 2 rupee coin gave us, she finds her joy in a 10 rupee note. That’s the irony of life.I still don’t owe an IPAD, she has got her own.She knows that apple not only is a fruit but also a Company, she can operate Whatsapp.I am so flabbergasted and feel so outdated looking at her.

The doll house game seems so banal to her(something for which I had even torn all my new clothes just to stitch a dress for my barbies). She plays barbie games too but on her IPAD.

A lot of things have changed.But-but-but yet nothing is changed

  • She goes for bicycling every day but alone,(unlike me who had a big bunch of munchkins .We used to call ourselves a”pack of wolves” &  literally roamed around from a street to another, small town perks I guess).

Nostalgic

  • She plays dollhouse but unlike mine, her barbie wears readymade clothes.I made use of all those SUPW lessons at school where I learnt to use a needle and thread.

 Just like me she too has learnt  “Aao Milo Sheelo Shallo,kaccha dhaga race lagalo” ( game which involves lots of clapping,sounds silly now but  it was my favorite) ,loves eating candy floss(Budhia k Baal),chasing  kulfi wale bhaiya,draping her mums dupatta and playing teacher teacher .Ruining all the walls of the house with colorful chalks.

No, the innocence isn’t lost.It has lessened though with time.After all, they are MTS Kids (Born in the generation of Internet). I agree to the fact that it is the need of the hour too.

We all have our time machines. Some take us back, they’re called memories. Some take us forward, they’re called dreams.

PS: I am not inclined towards the 90’s generation solely.I love all humans of all age

An open letter to Deepika Padukone

Dearest Deepika

I am a girl in my early twenties .I had been wanting to write you  for quiet a long time,but somehow couldn’t manage to write .I hope you spare a few minutes amidst your busy schedule and read this .I’ll be more than happy.I am not an aspiring model or actress..I am an engineer by profession,just a simple ordinary girl with very high aspirations.

Recently I was surfing YouTube while I came across your interview about how you went into depression and fought it bravely.With that I got to know about your website ,Such simplistic yet letting people know about the same .Spreading awareness .I neither am not have ever been into depression or anything as such but then the kind efforts from your end are commendable.

I am not a Bollywood fanatic ,but there hasn’t been any movie of you I have missed out watching (except a few which i guess  you won’t prefer watching them in your real life either ).

I was in 8th standard when your debut movie OM shanti OM was released.My parents took me along to watch the movie which was a very random plan.Back then we didn’t really had a pvr or the fancy ones  in my town,just a simple one that we used to call Picture Hall.

Though we were in ths balcony seats ,I  still remember the whistles on your entry .You had been my favorite actress since then Wish I could wistle too but then I was with  maa n papa and of course I don’t know how to whistle. Your were a diva back then ,and you a diva now.

Since  then and now you have come a long way.Impressing people more and more with your work.

Whole  nation now awaits for your Hollywood release next year,for we know you will  nail it too .There are millions like me who seek inspiration from you.Girls who want to become actress and ones who don’t .I believe it is not necessary to follow your steps, or choose the profession you did, it is not absolutely necessary .But one can sureshot draw lessons on ‘how be  the best in whatever you do’ from you.

Deepika,You are at the pinnacle of your career.There is no looking back now ,these are things I have learnt from you.Make mistakes, learn from them and move forward.

You are not only an inspiration to the youth,but also constantly reminds everyone about what an ordinary girl can do .Despite coming from badminton background ,I know choosing a completely different profession would definitely have been difficult for you,but you followed your heart.I and millions of girls like me draw inspiration from you.Despite the controversies and amidst all the trolling you faced for your love affairs ,you have come a long way .Shutting  mouths of all your critics ever time a finger was pointed at you .You are ingenious in what you are doing.Just keep shining and keep spreading smiles.It is easier to criticize someone ,and rather difficult to put up words of appreciation about anyone.I am not really a cynic,so I have nothing to complaint.Hence I sum up here.

PS:Plz don’t consider me as another fanatic fan of yours ,just like the “Jabra fan” (you know what I mean:D).I am totally sane :);)

Loads of love
