….2010….

Wow…I cant believe its been so long since I have written anything in my blog.

There was a point of time when my blog was my life, and rite now when I look back at those days, I just smile remembering the excitement of a new topic, waiting for everyone to read it, and then going through the comments! Truly one of the best decisions of my life was to start a blog.

I know this is not the first time I have come back after a long gap and vowed never to stop writing, but hey…promises are meant to be broken right! Haha! But no, once again I shall declare that I will, to the best of my abilities(and beyond) try to keep writing.

Because truly speaking, this is one moment in my life where I feel like I need an outlet, i feel the need to write more than anything. In the past 3 days I have cribbed about buying a fresh new diary for myself forgetting all about my dearest friend waiting faithfully for me to come back to him!

About 7 years ago I watched this movie, Harriet the Spy. That was what inspired me to keep a diary. I wanted to be like Harriet, to write down everything I saw and everything  wanted to be and I did it. By 2008 I had 5 diaries full of my emotions and thoughts, my feelings, my vulnerabilities, just about everything I had in me. Sometimes I feel like I want to start a new diary because its something you have for your own. Something no one can take away from you, a place where you can truly be yourself and no one will judge you, or riddicule you or your thoughts.

Sure a blog is great but the entire point of writing a blog is to get your thoughts out there, let other people look a little inside you, let then feel what you feel, let them think what you think, let them, for a moment, be you. But then why do we keep diaries? Are we so afraid of letting other people into ourselves so deep that we don’t know if they will understand, we don’t know if they will be able to feel what we feel, think as we think. And yet we write blogs, wanting people to read our thoughts, feel our emotions. Its a little contradictory don’t you think 🙂

So my friends, I have made a decision. I will henceforth continue with my blog, but I will also start a diary. A fresh start, for there have been so many changes in my life every since 2010 has hit, I cant seem to decide for myself whether they are good changes or bad, but I will try to figure them out.

Till the next post…

Sex and the City

 

 

One of the best things about being a girl is being able to watch sappy romantic girly movies and that’s just what my friends and I did today morning. The whole evening yesterday we were thinking and wondering as to what should we do today and finally one of us hit on the fine idea of watching a movie!

 

So there we were running late as usual, waiting to catch a bus that would take us to the movie kingdom namely Inox. Frankly speaking, somehow we are lucky enough never to miss the beginning of any movie no matter how late we are! Phew!

Anyway we reached Inox and well the screen was almost empty so we sat anywhere we wanted to get the best possible view because believe me, if you are a girly girl like me and love watching chick flicks, this is one movie you do not want to miss! Yes of course

 

I’m talking about Sex and the City, the movie! I for one have never watched a single episode of the very famous television series, but nevertheless, I thoroughly enjoyed the movie.

 

It is a perfect blend of love, romance, breaking up, trusting your boyfriend or husband, knowing how much you can do for your better half, never giving up on life, and most importantly, of friendship. I mean if you are girl, you will know what I mean. How many times have you gone out with your girl friends for that girl’s night out and shared the latest gossip about your boyfriend, that new hottie next door, or that ‘witch’ in your class tormenting you day by day? That’s what your best friends are for. To share your secrets, your feelings, your hopes, your dreams, and always knowing that you can rely on them no matter what happens.

 

The movie also tells us how trust can be broken, but if you really really love the person and are willing to believe that the breach of trust was unintentional, you can forgive and forget, a feat most girls find very very difficult, especially me! Hehe!

 

Loving someone with all your heart, always knowing they are going to be there for you, but also remembering that a relationship is not only about the other person. You must never forget who you are, what you were before your relationship, no mater how happy you are in it. Never ever forget the person you were and never ever sacrifice yourself so much that in the end you regret it and resent it.

 

The movie is a perfect blend of all these lessons and the most important lesson, love is great, but friendship is the most important thing after all!

 

 

Well anyway, my review- definitely worth a watch for all you girls out there!! Not bad if you want to take your boyfriend and teach him a few lessons too! 😉

Enjoy the movie and do give your feedback too!

heres a little preview!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Run in the Rain!

Well so I am on vacation again and of course as always it is my favorite time of the year!

Just the other day my friend’s and I had gone to none other than Dona Paula jetty. Getting a little tired of haunting Miramar beach every evening, we decided to look for a fresh new place to hang out. Mind you, I hadn’t been out of my house for at least two months, if you don’t count trips to college as an ‘outing’!!

So there we were, just reaching the jetty, last of which I had heard, was under re-construction for the safety of the people visiting this scenic place. And…. WOW! That was the only word that came o my mind after seeing the place in all its glory. Yeah there were a few bricks and sand and wires and cables and mud and muck here and there but hey, aren’t we all supposed to look at the good things first? Lol

Well jokes aside we decided to climb to the topmost part of the jetty from where u can look over the waters and see the clouds forming beautiful shapes. The view was panoramic and I am not exaggerating! The weather was just perfect, kind of strong breeze, which drove my hair totally crazy, dark clouds, no sun, just the perfect weather for me! Yeah you guessed right, I prefer no sun kinda weather, but no rain either for me! Sometimes.

It was such a great time and all the while we were there more and more of our friends seemed to turn up and in the end we had a large crowd laughing, catching up and having a really great time!

Then the highlight of the evening! The approaching rain! We could actually see it coming towards us, the droplets causing a disturbance in the waters that went on increasing and nearing us…

We watched mesmerized, especially me for it was the first time I saw anything like it before. But soon we were brought out of the trance as one of my friends screamed…RUN!!

Of course, we had no umbrellas, or raincoats to protect us so as you guessed we had to run for our lives! Or rather run for some shelter or risk getting drenched! God it was awesome running through the rain, slipping and sliding, looking for shelter when there was none. Needless to say we were soaked but laughing like idiots as we finally decided to stop under a…… coconut tree!!! J

What more to say, it was just the perfect ending to a most wonderful day! And you can bet I will definitely be visiting that place again…just for the sake of the run in the rain!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hi Folks!

Hey there fellow blogger’s and reader’s!

I know I haven’t been keeping up with the work that I started but I am going to give it a try one more time and I really do hope this time I can have enough time and interesting ideas to put forth to you all.

I am as of now unfamiliar with the improvements wordpress has made in the past few months so do bear if my posts look outdated and not so fancy! I will go through all the techniques one needs and try to make my blogspace even more alluring.

So do try and visit my blog once again if you remember my posts and enjoyed reading them.

Cheers!!

Ganpati Bappa, Moraya!!

 

 

So this year I went to Mumbai to my cousin’s place for Ganeh Chaturthi. And it was sooo much fun! Nothing like I expected!

Well my cousin and his family stay in a chawl in Mumbai and let me tell you, it is definitely an experience staying there. In some aspects its just like living in a very large colony but in others, so much more different. Everyone is so united and gets together and makes you feel like a part of everything that’s going on there. Well my cousin had Ganesh idol in his house as well as the whole chawl had a Sarvajanik one. And my cousin is usually the one who stays up night after night with some of his buddies and designs the background and everything to keep the idol. This year he truly outdid himself and Ganeshji was looking fabulous sitting there!

The best part that I like about celebrating Ganesh Chaturthi with a whole lot of people is the Aarti! Not that I know any of them by heart, I just love everybody singing together and the dhol and the music! It’s beautiful! Everyone is so joyous and we stay up ate nights singing away to glory!

My cousin and his friends from the chawl organize a skit every year during Ganesh. This was the first year I was able to witness it as I never go to Mumbai for Ganesh. These skits are very famous stories in our family as they are always a big hit and for once I wanted to watch one rather than hear about it from others who did! So there we were all sitting on the steps while the actors got ready ‘behind the scenes’!! As always, it is India of course, they were so late in starting but definitely it was worth the wait! They did a skit from the stories of a very famous Marathi writer, none other than, Pu La Deshpande! He is just too good! I am sure his fans know exactly what I’m talking about. Well they did a skit named “Mhais” which translated means cow( I think!!). so the story starts in a bus with its weird collection of passengers an proceeds on how the bus knocks down the ‘Mhais’ and the situation leads from there! The suggestions, the police, the owner and everyone else also gets involved and finally the problem is solved. And just when everyone goes back to the bus, the one thing that started all this has disappeared from the scene!! Yes, the ‘Mhais’ has gone away unhurt while everyone is deciding how best to treat it! 😉

It was most enjoyable. The actors were too good sending the audience into peels of laughter and loud applause every now and then. An amazing way to spend forty five minutes I must say. All the actors were teenagers from the chawl itself and it was clear they had worked really hard to make this show a huge success. After the delightful skit came Antakshari! My cousin and another girl were the anchors and it was such good fun! Everybody, even the parents contributed and sang and danced along with us. That was a fun night which we all hoped would not end.

But alas, it did and my short but amazingly fun visit to my cousin’s place also ended. 😦

But never mind, I am definitely going to make it a point to go again next year just to see the skit as they will be completing 21 years and the whole festival be special worth attending!

So there you go, my Ganesh vacation went extremely well and I had amazing fun, made new friends and wished college would never start and my lovely hols would never end!

I know I’m a little late but,

Happy Ganesh Chaturthi to one and all! 🙂

Teacher’s (Day!!)

 teacherneffbig.jpg

“The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires.” –William Arthur WardHappy Te

 

I remember Teacher’s Day during my school years. Everyone made such a big deal about it. And why not? We were all excited to show our teacher’s how much we loved them and cared for them. But somehow, after I joined college, by this I mean 11th onwards, the importance of Teacher’s Day just diminished.

 

I recollect the night before Teacher’s Day when I used to sit and painstakingly make beautiful cards for my favorite teacher’s. The not so favorite ones would get store bought ones of course! 😉 But I did give most of my teacher’s some token of my appreciation, even if it was just to remember me by. And never once did I regret spending endless hours making the perfect card or hunting for one in Hallmark or Archie’s. The words to be written inside the card were also very carefully chosen and represented each teacher individually. I loved Teacher’s Day.

 

But now, Teacher’s Day is just another day in my life. I wonder why this is so. Has the importance of teachers gone away for me? Perhaps it has. For I never really felt it the way I used to feel when in school. I never really care now about the happy smile that light’s up my teachers’ face when I present them with the handmade card. I just never bother anymore. Maybe it’s just because I’ve grown up over the years and don’t have the time and space in my life for teachers as I did before. Or maybe it was just the fact that the teachers in school were a lot more connected to us than they are now and I cannot say that I blame them. I mean a class of thirty-five students and a class of sixty students has a vast difference and one really cannot expect personal attention from the teachers!

 

A teacher has to be the one person who can take the place of your parents when they are not around. He has to be that driving force that pushes you towards achieving your goals. A teacher has to be a mentor as well as a friend to the student. Only then can the teacher-student bond be strengthened and maintained. But sad to say that after my school days, I have met so few teachers who fall in the category of friends as well as the guiding force. Those I can honestly count on my fingers.

 

Snubbing the students, ignoring them, yelling at them for no apparent reason and labeling any answer given to the teacher (when in a bad mood!) as a back answer is what I have noticed in the teachers of my college life. There are very few who can be the friend that a teacher needs to be and I can without a doubt say that most of my teachers, not all of course, from my school are that type of teachers and the teachers from my college days are without a doubt not like that! Again not all but most of them! I know many people reading this may seem like I am bitching too much about teacher’s and probably expecting a lot too but I don’t agree. If a teacher really wants to be that ideal personality, it is not an unachievable feat. If some can do it, why not the rest? Just the way the teachers expect the students to excel and do well, we students also do expect a little friendly behavior in return for all the hardwork we put in!

 

And the one really horrible thing I have noticed about some of the teachers is the way they just don’t hesitate to say something bitchy about the student behind their backs but heaven forbid if the same thing is done by the student and the teacher somehow hears of it!! That student will be suffering with bad grades for the rest of the time the teacher teaches that student probably! And yes, some teachers do love to take out the pent up frustration on the poor students and I must say find a vindictive pleasure in doing so. I have seen the sadistic smile on a teachers’ face when she belittled one student and reduced him to the verge of tears. It really is not the kind of behavior one expects from a teacher!

 

But well, what can I say or do? And what good is my saying anything going to help? I’m sure the ones who are open to criticism will not mind and will do all they can to be better teachers but the rest will probably just flunk me! 😛

 

I know what you all are thinking! She started from the topic of Teacher’s Day and reached God knows where!! But that’s the way it is! And I am pretty sure that a majority of the students reading this post can very well relate to what I have written and are probably nodding their heads in approval right now! 🙂

 

So on the whole, I believe teachers are important in our lives, some play a most remarkable role and influence our lives for the years to come in a good way and some are always in our minds as a bad memory. But till now, I can say I have had pretty good teachers with the exception of a few, well actually exception of quite a lot! Hell, I can’t complain as I do not know what it is like to be in their shoes, the things they have to go through everyday. But all I can say is that a good teacher is always good whether in her good days or the bad ones!

 

A belated Happy Teacher’s Day, to all my teachers.Happy Te
