Looonnng loonngg Time!

It's been sooooo long since I wrote my last post. I was busy here, there and nowhere. Actually, when I look back I feel I was lost in a nowhere land. 

I am here again with my super bored routine life where I find solace in writing. May be its crap. But at least it makes me feel a little better and lighter. I read a quote somewhere, 

One used to get annoyed if anyone read his/her personal dairy,
Now, one gets annoyed when no one reads their blogging dairy!

It can't be more true. I used to get soo bugged my super nosy sister and brother, who even if didn't had interest in my life(at least that's how they treated me - the dustbin-picked kid at home), used to read my dairy. I fought and got my parents buy me a lock and key dairy. That didn't work either. You would hide the key somewhere in the house, right! And with four eyes, especially wide alert the moment I used to write my diary, it was difficult. I got so mad at them that I stopped writing for a while.  

I thought my dear didi and bhaiya would stop bugging me, but they didn't. What are siblings for, right?

Few days back I found my dairy and read a lot of pages from there. Maybe I am still not okay with sharing all those thoughts with the world, not even with my husband/child or anyone, actually. That little girl in those pages, still want all those things to be shared by absolutely - NONE.

And I wondered if my blogs are really my open dairy? Well, it may exhibit a few feelings of mine, but not all. That dairy is all mine, this blog is public. I don't know who is reading me! But certainly it bothers me if people don't read/comment on my blogs. And yes, it still bothers me if my dairy is found/read by anyone!

With the hope, people start reading my blogs, here is one after loooooooooonnnnnnnnnnnnnggggggggg, and with fullllltooo hope that no one will read my dairy, there goes one! (Happy that my brother+sister's eyes are certainly off me with the location constraint :-D )

Jai Hind!

The current state of the nation disturbs me....and I am sure that rest aam janta too is disturbed. All I know is that there are just a few people who are creating a chaos in the nation.


I don't know. All I know is, all this is not required.

Only if I could create a TV show, I would shoot the real heroes. The great INDIAN ARMY/NAVY/AIR FORCE/POLICE FORCE.

Real fighters. Real adversities, Real challenges (of course taking care not to leak the location and other important details).

But it would be channel where the ANY of OUR PROTECTORS could come and tell a real frightening story....of a war...misery of losing a friend. The plight of the family. How the family coped up without him, what did that child felt when he lost his father, what that brother/sister felt when he lost him, what that wife felt, what that mother and father felt! Cause, we read that Ek jawan Sahid hua, but with him, there was a family, a friend, a nation too! Shouldn't we all know about everyone who went saving us. Even the ones who have the audacity to shout anti-national slogans. 

The jawans/officers/hawaldars can also share something really funny and nice. The time when they go back home. The time when they receive a letter. Or anything which pleases them. Or the plight of being away from their families for months. Missing wedding ceremonies of their own siblings, or seeing their first child on mobile phones(thanks to the internet and smartphones.) 

By means of this TV show, I would let people know the real heroes. Let me say it again, REAL HEROS, not REEL. 

To make each and every one staying in India understand, that someone is trying to ensure that we are safe at cost of their own lives, not fearing what will happen to their families. To awaken each and every Indian to respect the peace we have, because of them. To make it clear to every Indian, that we are alive in this free world, not because of their money, jobs, their home or power, they sleep every night in peace or party every night with joy, it's alllll alll alll at cost of someone guarding the border/ensuring our security, at cost of their own lives.  

Jai Hind!

Hope is that rope where you hang your dreams! - By ME :)

You can either get going on that dream or sit back and watch. It's your life and no one can decide for you. 

I have a dream....have it roped. But I really don't know how to go about it. There are many people who guide laugh at mock you .... to pray for you. But at this times...above all these things, all I need is wishes....good ones. 

To have that take the first step. To have the courage to take it all - good or bad! I don't know whether I will reach where I want to reach or when will reach where I have to reach. All I know is, This is the time, And I have to take a step ahead

Bless me Bhagwan ji.
Bless me all.

Tolerance towards Maggi..Maggi...Maggi!

Maggi is back...with a bang. The ads are all over, leave ads, Maggi is all all the supermarkets, in all the small kirana stores and may be houses too. Not sure though. 

Whenever I see that advertisement....."मेरी माँ सही थी, मैं भी सही हूँ", that is enough to remind me that my mom always told me, "Don't eat too much maggi!" Right from the beginning. I, like many others, was sooooo fond of Maggi(*3), that I always used my super power of selective hearing. 

Maggi has been my saviour after marriage. All I knew was Maggi(*3). Whenever my maid took chutti, I made, super-dry maggi, too-watery maggi, too-hot-maggie, No-masala-maggi, soup-overcooked-maggi, too-much-onion-maggi, no-onion-maggi, jala-hua maggi, kucha maggi, not-so-perfect maggi and perfect maggi. 

My baby, as expected, she loved..loved maggi. I was skeptical about giving her the same, so at times she used to get the treat when she behaved well. 

पर जब मैग्गी पर सवाल उठे, my mom was the first one to call me, and tell me to immediately throw away whatever I had in my pantry. My selective hearing was on and I was waiting for a miracle news that all tests shows, Maggi is fine. 

But no. There was some problem. Some major problem. Such a problem that all Maggi packets were called back. 

I felt soo hurt, cheated, sad.

मेरी माँ सही थी, मैं गलत थी! 

Now when I see the ads, it definitely brings a smile....vho raat ki cooking, vho jaldi,easy khana, that super yummy taste...Ummmm! 

But I have a question, we (many of us, at least) were soo angry with Mr Khan for that super famous Intolerance comment, we(many of us again) called him names and what not? 

Are we going to forgive maggi soo easily? For actually cheating us? For playing with our health? For playing with our children's health? If maggi सेफ थी, then why was a callback done? Why yet many states have not allowed maggi? 

I don't know if it is just a thought or am I still sad that Maggi did wrong to all of us!

That's said, I wonder if I will have the courage to go back to Maggi. But knowing my love, love, love for the maggi, maggi, maggi, my husband has made a plan. It's my anniversary soon, and I have got a news from my khufia sources that my husband has planned a surprise Midnight Maggi party for me. 

Well, what can I say, I just hope my bucha sleeps through this party :/

Disappointed with you, Flipkart!

I am angry...disappointed.... Sad! With you....flipkart.

I have been almost a regular customer of flipkart until flipkart itself discouraged me to the extent of moving to other online shopping sites. Literally & Actually!

1: can't force me to use your app. You can't dictate whether I browse through your site, through normal browser or your application.

I will not install your app....not if you force me to do so. Why shall I?

This is my choice what app I have on my phone and by any chance if you are trying to have a similar strategy as ola...'ola-cabs booking app for booking a cab is a must'...then hello and wake up. Ola needs to know our actually exact location to get us the cab at the earliest. But with you flipkart, there is no such restrictions.

I refuse to use your app. I would rather use my lappy or let go those vouchers. Plus, genuinely speaking, I might have a space/storage issue....which I always run out off. What am I supposed to do in that case? Please answer :-/

Second most irritating part of you ....flipkart!

Before the one-day guarantee delivery, there was a normal wait time of 2-5 days for many products. But now....whatever you buy if going through normal will take at least 7-10 days.

We...the common humans are not mad. We understand that you are fooling us. Big Time.

Whatever be it, you have disappointed me enough.

Someone's loss ....someone's profit,.

Although I know by losing one customer out of your bag, you are not going to lose much...but hey I was there for my profit....not yours! So be it!!

Bye bye Flipkart!!

Thing to remember when doing painting!

I have a friend who has somewhat better idea of painting been done and all but I know there are many people who have no idea of painting and the fallouts and some benefits. 

I am not an expert on painting but there are few suggestions which my friend told me....I want to share!

1) If you are getting any wall painted and you are confused....GET A SAMPLING DONE.
Speak to the contractor before you fix the deal...that for every room you will want at least two sample colors done before you give a go. 

For sure that person will tell you, it is chargeable and this and that.....then don't fix the deal. 

Cause...what you see on the color booklet is not what you get on the wall. We wanted a very light shade of yellowish-brown and a comparative deep brown. We asked for sample for deep brown, one came out as brick red and other as deep brown. Both shades were above and below...which means very close and in the same family.....but the difference was huge. 

2) If you are stuck with the color selection....ask Aparna....on the Asian Paint site and she will forward you to a color consultant and they suggest a fair color according to you room and choice. 

Luckily we were doing Asian Paint and but unfortunately the Asian paint consultant couldn't visit my area, so I got the support online. 

You can always try!

3) Don't panic cause of dust....dust and dust everywhere. Collect all your valuables....and run away...hahaha That's exactly what I want to do. Just Keep Calm. These days would pass soon and the result would be great. 

Hoping for the same...keeping my calm....
