woes and start afresh...

Art of enjoying idleness.

I know I'm giving up life's simple pleasures when I give up, however unconsciously, the art of enjoying idleness.
Like reading into the night and not worrying about the time that I have to be at ವರ್ಕ್...
To read the newspaper - all 24 pages of it!
Or trying out all kinds of homemade face packs....
Or hair massages. And pedicures and facials.
Or spend time window shopping....My fav..
And getting DVDs of movies I'd like to watch...
And gymming, or bloggging, without checking the time for how late it is!
To indulge in my eccentricities and do saner things like manage my finances, and relationships, visit pregnant cousins and friends, ailing elders and
lonely relatives as often as I'd want to.
To travel free and often....

I want to do all of these now now now...24 hours aint enuf fa me..:)
೨೪ ಗಂಟೆ ಸಾಕಾಗಲ್ಲ..ಏನು ಮಾಡೋಧು...

ever wondered how a HR Manager could write a love letter to his girlfriend?



7.0 S.M

Sub: Offer of love!

Dearest Ms Aarthi,

     I am very happy to inform you that I have fallen in Love with
you since the 20th of October (Thursday). With reference to the
meeting held between us on the 19th of Oct. at 1500hrs, I would like
to present myself as a prospective lover. Our love affair would be on
probation for a period of three months and depending on compatibility,
would be made permanent.  Of course, upon completion of probation,
there will be continuous on the job training and performance appraisal
schemes leading up to promotion from lover to spouse. The expenses
incurred for coffee and entertainment would initially be shared
equally between us. Later, based on your performance, I might take! up
a larger share of the expenses. However I am broadminded enough to be
taken care of, on your expense account.

     I request you to kindly respond within 30 days of receiving
this letter, failing which, this offer would be cancelled without
further notice and I shall be considering someone else. I would be
happy, if you could forward this letter to your sister, if you do not
wish to take up this offer.

Wish you all the best!

Thanking you in anticipation,

Yours sincerely,

HR Manager

Amma...this is for u...

My Mother...She is the only one who can turn chaos into comfort, and makes a room more like home just by walking into it.

She is Mom.And she does everything with a smile and pleasant attitude.
She knows when to hug me, when to simply listen, when to smooth the hair from my face and pat my arm,
when I need to hear laughter, when to call, and what to say to always make me stop, make me think,
make me evolve into someone a little deeper, a little kinder, a little more capable of being called her daughter.

She is wonderful.
She made things happen:
You want to create? Let’s make play dough. You want to paint? I have it ready..
You want to turn the living room into the planet Mars where aliens resembling fuzzy bunnies live?
She would say,go ahead..Clean it up after you’ve landed back on earth...!

To me, she seemed to know everything and explained it all in my language,the way i can understand..:)
At the time, I thought I was speaking on her level. Eventually, I learned she was speaking on mine.

 No one cares about your broken heart more than Mom. She’s never too busy or too tired to
mend your hurting. Keep her up all night crying. She’ll make your favorite breakfast the next morning..Trust me...

I spent my childhood trying to hurry up and outgrow her, be my own woman, be different than her while being
just like her.
As an adult, I finally get it. I’ll never be her. I couldn’t on my best days. She is Mom and there is no comparison.

Instead, I admire her, how she can touch anyone with just a soft expression, how people gravitate
to her for comfort, how she gives of herself without pity or complaint, how her food is so yummy without
even perfect ingredients.

So for my mother and all other mothers keeping us in awe and wonder at the richness of your heart, Happy Mother’s Day.

You helped us dream big. ....

Dark Vs Fair

Reading an article in a newspaper today, reminded me of how much our Indian society is still
hung up on ‘fairness’!

The very term ‘ Fair and Lovely’ indicates that fairness and loveliness goes
hand in hand!
I remember, reading or Indian-matrimony for fun, and
coming across loads of adverts which stated very clearly ‘fair bride wanted’.
And I do not recall any advertisement for a ‘fair groom wanted’.

Going back to the main topic – why this fascination with ‘fairness’????
Is it as harmless as the fascination for ‘tanned’ skin abroad, as some people like to claim?
I wish it were, but I would have to disagree.. Agreed, that a lot of people in the
UK and the US( and I am sure in a lot of other countries), go for sunbeds and other
tanning treatment to look good.

So what is the difference with our people trying to be – ‘fair and lovely’?

The main difference I would think is that in there is no discrimination within a society
against people who are not tanned(in UK, US etc).
Tanning is simply a beauty treatment, however, in India, a whole lot more depends of
one’s skin colour! Brides are rejected based on ‘fairness’ of the skin!

Some time back I remember seeing a ‘We, the people’ on NDTV,
where a gentleman, very honestly said that, given a choice between 2 equally qualified
people, he would select the fairer candidate, as that would be more beneficial
to his business.. Unfortunately, this mindset remains!

Somebody else, qualified the difference, saying that one would not mind having a
dark girlfriend, but when it came to the woman, to take home to mummy –
it would have to be a fair girl!

However, don’t you think, that if a woman tried to reject a prospective groom, on
the basis that he is ‘not fair’,
would be told not to be ‘frivolous’?

Even, in this age, people advise expectant mothers to eat certain foods to ensure that
the unborn child is ‘fair’! And this is not just among the uneducated,
unaware society either!

The silver lining? Well , from the look of it, today we have a market for
Fair and Handsome’ as well..
Well, at least we can no longer complain of inequality, I guess!

What is it about men and shopping...

What is it about men and shopping? I can never understand why my boyfriend hates shopping with such a vengeance.

For me, retail therapy is one of the most relaxing and fun experiences. It rests – right on the top – right after a spa experience  For my boyfriend, it is probably as relaxing as getting his legs waxed 

I can spend hours window shopping… I can even do that in grocery supermarkets.. I am known to stand and admire all the pretty cakes in the bakery section, while my boyfriend mutters behind me,’ Just select whatever you like and let’s get going! People are going to think that you have never seen cakes before!’ Which is why, whenever I am shopping alone, I make it a point to go to the food hall in places like Macdonalds and pizza corners and drool away   Yummy yummy yummy looking food! 

Shopping for me is pure bliss.. Looking at all the clothes on sale, trying on a few and then deciding not to pick it unless totally satisfied.. For ma guy, it is more functional – enter a shop only if he has no other option. Buy new clothes only when he has run out of decent clothes to wear. Spend 2 seconds to decide and bill it – all done in under 10 minutes.. 10 minutes! Can you believe that? How can somebody do that! It’s just not done! He despairs when I reject clothes and move on to the next shop.. I am sure he sends up silent prayers that I get what I am looking for in the next shop.

There is so much to browse; after all, we should make an informed decision – so what if it is just a pair of skirt? Or jeans or accessories or shoes.. How can we decide without knowing what is on sale next door? By the end of a shopping trip – I glow with happiness and he is totally exhausted!

For him it is a list that can be reduced where possible.. For me, there is nothing like a list when it comes to shopping.. I believe in picking up if I like it – am sure we can find a use for it , for him it is, picking up only it we are in dire need of it.

A couple of weekends back, we went Mantri mall in malleshwaram. It is  awesome with the bunch of all shops put up in one place.... The one place that makes him want to shop is when he sees some electronic shop. Reliance digital… He can spend all his life there I guess..Sooo engrossed in the magic of those tiny gadgets... Never seen him so excited in a shopping trip

Next time, I want happy, fuss free shopping, with no questions like, ‘innu shopping idya??’ or ‘innu yest hothu aguthe… every 2 minutes( as if shopping is such a precise science that I should be able to predict!) , I am leaving my boyfriend with the staff in the Reliance Digital outlet to ‘boyfriend-sit’ while I enjoy shopping to the fullest 
Or better still go shopping with a girl friend. So much better!

Learnt the hard called bitter truths

# Never trust a person who never has a good word to say about any person in the whole world – every one according to the person is an idiot… and deserved the mean things he/she did to them. Never trust them coz as soon as you go out of their sight you become one of those idiots according to them.
# You can be in love and yet not be jealous of your “better half” when he/she speaks with members of opposite gender… all you need in life is trust in your partner and confidence in yourself. That way the relationship remains fresh without any petty differences and you remain best friends with the one you love.
# Everyone can get over all their insecurities about relationships (including commitment phobia) once they meet the right one. No matter what happens, if its meant to be, it will happen.
# Everyone says be cautious about people you meet online, never trust them etc. but sometimes the best people in the world you are meant to know are just not available in your vicinity. I have met sweetest possible guy I could have ever known in my life on the internet. There is no way any other person guy or girl can ever compete this person’s space in ma life(that’s right, Deepak, i am talking about you)...

A lilll confused..may be more...

Sometimes i step back from my daily routine, work and paradigms that i live in for a while and think, is that really me?
Sometimes life appears very unreal. Everyone is moving with the mob not knowing what exactly they are doing, not knowing where they are heading to and somehow this system makes us believe that everything will work out fine. I am not sure whether it actually happens and i am not sure whether this is the right thing to do.
When i knew a little less about the world it was always essential for me to know where this road would lead me to. However i admit that the dreams and ambitions at this phase of life were very simple but as a kid it was as important as anything else. Now i have grown big and have learned to not know every time what the roads will end up with. But sometimes am confused and wonder is it the right thing to do?

My best friend is constantly ranting to me about her troubles with this boy that she has been seeing (on/off) for almost a year now and it's getting a little repetitive. It always begins with her crying to me about how he's such a jerk because he didn't do something she wanted him to do or he didn't respond the way she expected him to.
I then comfort her and spit out the honest truth about how he is a total jerk and that she needs to swallow her feelings and think with her head.

Then, for a slight moment, she nods in agreement and promises to cut relations and contacts with him.
My best friend then cuts any form of communication with him but then reconnects with him in about a week and the cycle starts all over again. I'm sure you get the picture and know exactly what's happening.

So then she's caught in this never ending cycle of happiness/unhappiness. My comments to her get more and more bitter but the same thing happens again. I know that she is totally in love with this guy, and yeah sure, all the bollywood songs claim that you need to follow your heart, but in all honesty, what does your heart know? There are times in your life where you need to make decisions with your brain and figure out what is right and what is wrong despite what your heart is telling you. You may agree or disagree with this observation, and that's fine because ultimately, I'm in slight disagreement with this observation, too.

I realized that despite what I'm saying to my friend, her decision to go back is not exactly dumb, because we all do it. Even I am a hypocrite and go against my own will and fall into the cycle, too.

Have you ever been caught in the cycle of happiness/unhappiness? If you were, how did you get out? Also, how do you deal with a friend who asks you for advice and ignores it?

Since when do social networking sites determine whether you're friends with someone in real life or not?

Since when do social networking sites determine whether you're friends with someone in real life or not?

Scenario: You and a friend get into a arguement of some sort. You sign on to Myspace/Facebook and you notice they're no longer on your friends list.
Is that supposed to be the final straw? Is that what ulitmately determines the status of a friendship? Oh wow, we're not friends on Myspace! That must mean we're not friends in real life! That is DEFINITELY the end of our friendship, right there!

Seriously, though. Is that the way of telling everyone online you're no longer friends with a person? If they're not on my friends list, then they're not my friend!

Is that supposed to be offensive? Does anyone truely get offended by that? Is that supposed to make me go cry in a corner? Because it won't. I probably won't even notice to tell you the truth. And if I do notice, I won't care. I'll probably just giggle to myself and say "Oh wow, I guess we're really not friends now!"
Now, I suppose I can understand this if the person is bothering you. I'd defriend and block, too. But if the person isn't saying anything to me, they can come to my site every single day for the rest of their lives if they want to. I don't care.

I don't know. I just think people should stop basing their friendships off of whether or not you're friends with someone on a networking site. What happend to the good ol days when you just simply said (or some variation of) "We're not friends anymore"? Instead of making it official - without saying a word - by defriending them on some site.

Seriously, let's get real people. Networking sites aren't everything. And for that matter, the internet isn't everything, either.

Picture perfect

What a picture....It makes me think....reminds me of someone...

what is that first thing u get in your mind when u see this picture..???

To the special one...

He likes it when I fall asleep on him. He kisses me while I sleep . “Hey” he says, and he moves away only so that he can pull me closer, in a way that allows me to lay my head on his chest.
Listening to his heartbeat makes me feel safe. For the first time in my life I don’t feel alone. His skin is darker than mine, and softer. The colors look beautiful together. They match.
And then he breathes faster, Starts kissing ma nose…and his fingers are lost in my hair, and the silence is the most comfortable and forgiving I've ever felt… and then he says he loves me. And he means it.
I’m shocked every time. He professes his love, and I laugh. I laugh because there is no other way to express the pure happiness I feel, and I feel it because he is my soul mate. I tell a joke about some thing silly and now it's his turn to laugh. He laughs at me, not at the joke: "That joke was terrible. I just have to laugh because you think it's funny. It's sweet to me."
Then we're back. He tells me about his day, and asks me about mine. "I love how you just can't shut up," he says with that beautiful smile.
It should be beautiful…..It is…


Girls have been generally typecasted as the "weaker sex", something I would beg to differ. This is a barbaric, ludacris, and illogical way of thinking. I think that for the past centuries, the strength and uniqueness of women have been proven and should no longer be an issue, if only the society will be more open. But anyway, I won't go into that too much. What I want to talk about are women drivers.

I drive every single day of my life and I can say that I'm an average driver. Some say "for a girl, I'm a pretty good driver". And even if I should be flattered, I can't help but be annoyed. What does she/he mean by "for a girl"? I mean, that just pisses me off because it shows how skills of women on the road are belittled. What's worse than that is when I hear people who get bugged and say such things as "women drivers" and then grunt. What the fudge?!

Another thing--on stop lights, I do several retouches (a little gloss, a little fluffing of the hair) and I would receive staring of a lifetime! Is there something wrong with that? It's my ride and I can do anything, right?

What do you think? Am I the only one who's driven crazy with this or are you? Have you any experiences about being prejudiced as women drivers?

What is perfection to you?

A while ago, I had this conversation with someone. She had said that she "wanted everything to be perfect". Well yeah, she's a perfectionist. Now, this got me thinking: what is life without imperfection? I know it seems rather far-fetched, but yeah. I'm not much of a perfectionist, after all.

Imagine a perfect world. There would be no sorrow, or no pain. Everyone would be happy, and, well, perfect. But then, what would be so fun about that? Happiness wouldn't be worth much anymore. Life would just keep going on, and in a dull matter, too. If there is no pain, how do we learn? How do we move on? What would be the point of life? Besides, every day would seem so mindless, since everything we do is flawless; there are no such things as mistakes.

I remember this lesson we had in school: the Holocaust. Hitler's idea about the "perfect society" is ridiculous. Our society may have a lot of concerns, but it is perfect in its own way. We are all unique, as we have all heard over and over again. Now, I'm sure it would be boring if we all looked alike and acted alike. It would be enough to drive anyone crazy!

Once, I saw this quote that said, "Being happy doesn't mean that everything is perfect. It simply means that you have learned to see past the imperfections." I couldn't agree more. I mean, if you're only going to be happy when everything is "perfect", then you'll never be truly satisfied!

Perfection for me is simple: it's being truly happy and being able to do what I want to do. It's just enjoying everything that comes my way. Let's be honest, sometimes I can be quite a pessimist. But hey, life is there for me to enjoy, and it won't be there forever.

Well, that's my opinion; you don't have to necessarily agree, of course. But let me ask you a question: What is perfection to you?
