Happy new year to all 🙂

happy new year 2015

I wish 2015 brings happiness and joy to my family, friends and may there be peace everywhere. Peace part sounds very skeptical but often true wishes come true. Amen.

New year has come so soon. It was like yesterday when we started packing and moved to USA. It’s already 9 months now. How quick the time flies.

Last year started with a good note and who knew that towards the end it will bring along with it great tragedy in family. My dearest Azoba, my loving grandpa and mama are with God now. May their soul rest in peace in heaven. May their blessings and happy memories remind us of their love for all.

I miss my Azoba so much. Whatever I am today is because of him. Everything.

Anyway, it’s time to be hopeful, to be positive and looking forward ahead. Azoba always told me to keep head high, believe in God and yourself. Work hard, success will definitely come. Oh, how I miss the voice of my grandparents. Even that I know I can’t go back but I so much wish to go back in time and tell them how grateful I am and shall always be. To say “thank you” for all the love, support and caring. For raising me. For everything.

Let the new year make each of us more humble. More considerate towards others. May at least I try to be respectful to others’ feelings.

Resolutions for new year? Just to be true to myself and my family and friends. Keep myself more grounded. Avoiding feeling of jealousy, cribbing for things not required. Looks like going on that once in a while philosophical path again. But it’s true.

Wishing and actually doing something are two different things. I don’t know what’s in store for 2015 but I am hopeful for good things to happen soon 🙂

And lastly, to keep good health.

Welcome 2015.


The Rain Effect

Posted: July 24, 2014 in AH, Fun, Slice of Life


What makes you happy? A good sleep, good food, lavish life, great job…money??? there can be unlimited answers to this. if someone asked me this question 5 months ago, my answer would be simple : Rains. Rains make me happy!

Things change. Picture this. This place never ceases to amaze me. For someone who has always lived in hot, dry state, this place is a sudden change. For the last 5 months, rains have been a part of my daily life on weekly basis.

earlier rains used to bring joy, happiness, smiles and going out and getting wet, dancing under the sky. rains meant a cup of hot tea, onion fries and vada pavs. rains compelled me to dial up my friends and make them envy with sounds of rain drops on the window panes. And at times, on those foggy window panes, you write words with your finger tips. Often I have made heart symbol and initials of mine and AH. I still do this 😃😃

rains have their own magic. how intoxicating that fragrance is when rain drops touch the earth and blend with the mud.

rains have their own beauty. Somewhere from far you hear a cuckoo singing. Somewhere very far a peacock must have danced. Somewhere an empty pond would have filled and quenched the thirst of a cow. Somewhere you hope a mazdoor or a laborer digging ground at construction site is kissed by rain.Rain drops would have taken his sweat away along with them.
You see beautiful umbrellas and colorful raincoats, kids splashing water and jumping on the rain, those little paper boats finding their way on sloppy roads. Despite all the chaos on roads, the traffic and potholes on roads and no electricity; rains are just beautiful.

rains have their own charm. yes I remember picking up my favorite book and reading it. or listening to my favorite songs taking me back to some happy memories. or wearing that special shawl because the air just cooler and you want some warmth.

and as I write this blog today, I am watching outside my window. I can see its raining. the sky is so grey as if someone has just painted heavy strokes of black on canvas and added a dash of white. whatever color comes up with this combination, that’s the grey shade am referring to! and yes from grey I remember seeing the trailer of this new movie 50 shades of grey. I don’t know the movie’s fate yet until it releases. the novel was not good so its adaptation on screen will be I don’t know..bad!

anyway, coming back to rains now. Rains now make me gloomy and suppress my excitement. it rains so much here that I crave for a sunny day. yes I crave for a sunny day.

it’s not that bad considering that in a few days this too shall pass but the sight of incessant rains at times is unbearable.

our moods reflect our personality. I know I crib a lot about many things and rains were definitely never one of those things until now. so I feel sad that my favorite season is becoming my least favorite season now.

but on the up side, too much rains means new boots, new jackets. that’s the bright side of an otherwise rainy day 😉

New novel on my shelf!

On being a cosmo girl!

Posted: March 8, 2013 in Fun, Gossip Girl


Today’s international women’s day. I wish all the women I know a very happy women’s day.

Chatting with my best friend has got me into this thought of putting down something which is widely recognized as an international magazine. Cheesy, chick, full of girl talk and has it all…all that can come up in a naughty mind 🙂


Now, I am not a regular reader of Cosmo. However, if available on a magazine stand, my eyes automatically turn towards it easily; bypassing the news magazines (though I read them regularly!) So, what makes Cosmo so special?

Here are the reasons-

• It is an all-girls magazine. It has that zing, be it hi-fashion, clothes, cosmetics, shoes, hats, bags, jewelry, perfumes, belts. Basically you name it and it is there.

• I read it in my college days. Thus, it has a strong connection. It opened my eyes towards proper make up 🙂 believe me it helps when you know the exact way to apply eye shadow. It’s a great deal in my world 🙂

• Plus, there is a lot of information on topics you want to read! Yes you get everything on the internet these days but the fun of reading it while sleeping on the bed. Well nothing beats that!

• Coming to the topics now, right from making the perfect coffee to making purrfect love 🙂 from how to flaunt that killer outfit to bringing that killer smile 🙂 It reaches out to all those places, where perhaps other magazines take it the other way round! Cosmo has this unique blend of keeping the language youthful, vibrant, and very gossipy and the way one friend will share with another.

• And there are some horrid stories which the readers share. Am not sure they are true or entirely made up. Whatever the case be, I love reading inside sin stories 🙂 its fun!

• The cover page itself is a peep into the world of glamour.

Read Cosmo for fun. Do things that relate with you. But in the end, don’t follow everything.
Follow your heart and listen to what it says 🙂 coz a woman’s heart is a treasure.

From one woman to another. Cheers!

Sheldon Cooper is superb. He is the ultimate geek 🙂

He is every bit adorable despite the irritating ” knock knock penny knock knock ..” and the funny “soft kitty, warm kitty” lullaby he makes penny to sing for him. His never failing sarcasm and the use of catchphrase “bazingaa”  are some of his classic traits.

Sheldon believes in the exemplary value he adds through his comments, suggestions on issues beyond his limited social skills.

Here are some of his hilarious conversations –


Penny: I give up. He’s impossible!
Sheldon: I can’t be impossible; I exist! I think what you meant to say is, ‘I give up; he’s improbable’.

“What kind of computer do you have? And please don’t say a white one.”

“Engineering is merely the slow younger brother of physics, watch and learn gentlemen. Do either of you know how to open the tool box?”

“No, I’m going to ask him to choose between sex and Halo 3. As far as I know, sex has not been upgraded to include high-def graphics and enhanced weapon systems.”

Explaining the rules to his expanded version of Rock-Paper-Scissors: “Scissors cuts paper, paper covers rock, rock crushes lizard, lizard poisons Spock, Spock smashes scissors, scissors decapitates lizard, lizard eats paper, paper disproves Spock, Spock vaporizes rock, and as it always has, rock crushes scissors.”

Sheldon Cooper and his whims 🙂

Leonard: We need to widen our circle.
Sheldon: I have a very wide circle. I have 212 friends on MySpace.
Leonard: Yes, and you’ve never met one of them.
Sheldon:  That’s the beauty of it.

Sheldon: Take some.
Penny: Don’t be silly.
Sheldon: I’m never silly.

“I don’t say anything. I merely offer you a facial expression that suggests you have gone insane.”


Vanya : “Sheldon, you are clearly the one geek I simply adore and AH, you are the only geek  I simply love”.

1st week of 2012 has passed and the time has come to ponder what happened to the whole “resolutions” thing.




well the strange fact is i did not make any resolutions this time initially. because last year’s are still unfulfilled. what am i gonna do if i  keep pending my resolutions like this?

need to make even more realistic ones i guess.

hence, only one  “hope” for 2012 – eat healthy food.

  • say no to chips please…even if lays and pringles come up with something more fancy and yummy.
  • say no to least in public..act!
  • chocolates are sin. indulge only once in a while 🙂
  • increase the in take of salads. yes, i started having them meticulously this year..happy to see the change.
  • regular jogs and walks…ummm this goes

for AH as well.

enough for food talk…now something in general –
  • maintain blog.
  • add more to crafts …more do it yourself projects.
  • last but not the least – get a job. i think this one tops the list. right.
moving forward to social –
  • less gossip vanya. less gossip….when will i learn.
  • in a group, do not do – me me me…hmmm need to put a hold on this.
  • while watching movies, do not tell the climax (if read on wiki or other sites) to friends. they get irritated. but ain’t that fun to see pissed off faces…confused!
ohhh shit..gotta stop this post because the resolutions are piling up now and i can not do this to myself……

okay, am done. wait for 2013 to catch up for this year’s report.
