My 3 Wishes for today and for a while now..

The 3 things that I wish I could have are… today and for a while now I have been badly craving for these things to happen.


1.       I want to stay with my mother and sisters along with my pretty nieces for a longer time. I realize how important they are and how much I miss them only after I am married which means we live in different cities. And my life is so packed right now that I can’t go and stay with them for a few days. In those few days by the time my nieces start to realize who I am it’s time for me to get back to my routine life. Even a vacation would do well with them.

2.       I am just being a little selfless and selfish at the same time in this second wish. I want my husband to get what he wants out of his job this year so that if that works better I am assuming he would be able to come home faster or rather leave home a little late and take a few more offs than he does in a year.. Just so that we get to spend more time with each other. I badly want him to relax. This wish is totally based on my assumption that life will get easier after he gets what he wants out of his job this year.

3.       Get thin all by doing nothing …Eat, eat, eat ….and not get fat….Just like every other girl I wish this. I thank god for not making me really fat but I am on the plump side and I don’t like it and I am too short which eventually makes me look fat L …I try to work on it but It just gets tougher after a while.. I tend to give up every time I start. So I just wanting to be thin and also considering I love to eat. Let me eat peacefully without worrying that I will never be able to get fat with the entire calorie intake I do.

Naya Ghar – Na-pasand…..

Just when we started liking the house we were staying in the owner asked us to vacate the house for his relatives (he couldn’t say a no coz their relative was dealing with cancer and the treatment takes too long a time…and we dint have a choice to say no)…so the search had begun for a perfect house to stay in….and the house we have moved in was chosen becoz of three reasons

1. Coz it is spacious and not compact as the others in this area

2. It makes PD’s travel to office convenient

3. Falls in our budget…yes its so important to have a house fall in the budget you want it to in Mumbai (the city of kharcha)

So we moved into this naya ghar on this Saturday….the first day went on with all unpacking and cleaning of the house….we realized the kitchen was extremely dirty and decided to call the house cleaners and they charged us 1100 just to do the cleaning of the kitchen..we couldn’t help it….we had to pay it considering the fact that we have to stay in this house for the next 5 months for sure….thats how the annoying contract is….so we cannot do anything about it…  …not to forget to mention PD has been at his best since this Saturday….he has been doing all he can….with this crazy woman who is so scared of rats…

We unpacked the kitchen stuff on Sunday and I cooked a happy meal for us and we slept happily assuming we are well settled In this house ….and will get up in the morning to start the good beginning of the new house on Monday….but no….that was not what was in store for us…we woke up to see the terror in the kitchen the rats had created…they had eaten the tomatoes and kheera…left on the fridge...ate the wheat flour packet into bits and pieces to get the damn taste of the flour…How ugly and yuck can these rats be.

We got one of the rats removed on Sunday night..and then we figured out there is another one…so got the rat killing poison and had it placed every where….another went out yesterday ….and no they are not going to let us live happily…we figured out at 3.00 AM in the morning that there is another one in the hall…in the broken switch board which we have packed tight so that It doesn’t come out…iam not very gutsy to remove it myself and PD has left for work already and due to lack of time he hasn’t been able to do so iam waiting for the broker to come and get it out…by noon…

I have a lot of reasons for not liking this house…if taken positively…they cannot be considered but thanks to this dreadful rat experience I don’t think I can like this house…and everything looks like a trouble to me…

Things I dislike in this naya ghar…

1. RATS – I hate animals…they beat the shit out of me….i wish I could sent them to jail for eating my house away…(nothing positive abt this one)

2. Dislike the door bell : it sings om bhur bhuvaswaha…It rings really low …( I should be liking it I know god is going to punish me for saying this but I cannot HELP disliking it)

3. Dirty walls: I hate the walls..the earlier residents did not keep the walls clean….they had too many kids who spoilt the walls… they make the house look ugly

4. Bed mattress : Its sssssoooo bad….the worst things in the house so far…we haven’t slept on it even once…

5. Smell : there is this typical smell In this house which is not leaving us to live happily…we’ve bought a room freshner..but the bad smell seems to beat the good smell.. 

6. Toilet : we are soon going to have the spray flash In the toilet its not there..we are using the mugga  ….indian system

Out of some good things in this house one is the windows…they are big…they make me want to keep them open all day long but I can’t unfortunately coz of the ugly irritating RATS….we have painting going on in our apartment …by which this irritating rats climb the bamboo sticks and come up and reside in our crazy house…

This house has been upsetting….it has just been so annoying to face something or the other every night and not have a good night’s sleep…

I miss the old house even though it had less of amenities and too much of dust…it was just perfect..and the society made me feel secure….in this area all I see is animals…dogs, rats, cats and what not… 

I want something good to happen to me and PD. Something we both can rejoice about n be happy. We are heading to manipal this weekend with my in-laws…(my first outing with my in-laws)…yes iam looking forward to it…also looking forward to seeing the memories PD shares with that place….

I hope manipals trip brings goodluck, wealth, happiness and the courage to our family to go thru all the bad times…for example the rat times  ….

Surprise your love today for what she is with you…

I have a hell lot of little ideas in my mind which I think men should do for their women… and let me tell you….some women just like the little things men do for them….i don’t think I want to comment on PD…cuz he is the worst of all men I have come across in giving anything for the matter of fact…I even suggest him to do a few things for me…but there is no hope in his case..….forget surprises….

These silly little tricks can make your women feel wanted….which is a right you being a man should give to your lady…and let me tell you…

These are basically for those men who are mstly held up at work for hours and hours…and your wifes wait for your focus, attention and LOVE after you come home…

Obviously these are surprises…and not the things you tell before you do..and don’t forget WOMEN LOVE SURPRISES

1. Get her a rose….oh ….dont forget a chocolate to accompany with it…

2. One day just ask her not to cook…and take her to a food joint she had been craving and raving about a few days back.

3. Write a sweet small letter or a note (don’t copy things from the internet- let it be original)

4. A small cake on a random day.. Saying I love you

5. Take her for an ice cream….late night

6. If she has been a big buff of movies…take her for a movie this weekend…and ask her if she would want to watch back to back movies and experience how it feels

7. Tell her how best she cooks something

8. Write just 4 to 5 lines saying - what I like about you : state 5 reasons…drop it on your bed before you leave to work.

9. One fine day a random materialistic present does wonders…women love gifts..

10. A final one…make sure you get home early on those special dates…. Anniversaries , birthdays etc….and make sure you don’t leave her alone…however bad it can get…if you miss out on it…give her the special feeling on the next day….or the same date of the next month to compensate….she will be surprised n will be delighted..

Remember that she deserves to be felt special…..coz shes the one who craves for your time, attention, focus and LOVE….as I said it before…Do it and let me know how she feels…you busy men….

Cricket Match Live!! And we lost!!!But am happy…

Thanks to PD’s firm we got two free passes to watch the Mumbai Indians match at Wankhade stadium…The delight on my face when PD called to tell me that we would be hitting off to see the match was so crazy…I was so excited…coz I would get to see all the players live and in front of me playing….

I was to reach the stadium by 8.00 Pm (and its obvious ppl reach late everywhere in Mumbai)…When the local was nearing the churchgate station…I could already hear the oooohhhss and aaahhss...and it looked so exciting and promising…

Till we reached we had already missed out the first 6 overs…and the crowd was in full swing….after reaching our seat …I must mention we were at the sachin stand… (although it was not that great to be in that stand coz all you get to see is his back…and nothing else…why on earth would he look back and wave at me…as I was not even right behind him)…

The view to the ground was good…it looked so filmy…the green green grass looked like they had put a light green carpet on the ground…the flashy lights looked like there was some major thing happening(yes the MI match is surely a major thing…but not when they end up losing with KKR)

MI played really bad…and when we got out right before the last over (coz the match happened to be pretty obvious win for KKR)..All we could hear ppl say is “every time I come to see the match.. MI loses the match”…I remember kids giving out a gujju version of that line too….almost everyone was saying it…and so was I …but it wasn’t that disappointing for me…I enjoyed every bit of the glam sham, noise, music, cheers…every little thing of it..

I screamed and roared in full swing every time when Mumbai was playing well… (Which hardly happened)…I participated in all the Mexican waves that passed by me... you hardly can hear anyone else except for the ones around you…so much noise after all…

All in all what an awesome and a time a to remember….you hardly can see the players coz they all look so teeny weeny from the top…but yes…who cares unless I got to see SACHIN live….…

The we came across PD’s colleagues who were sweet, generous and humored…with a lot of their office gossip we hit it off to pavilion(I think that was the name) at the Alpha to grab some pav bhaji at 2.00pm  …and they dropped us back home…No wonder Mumbai looks the best in the middle of the night with the sparkling lights..  ….

More to come…on the two best things that happened to me last Sunday…Ishaqzaade and Tea for two and a piece of cake  

Palak Paneer & Disappointment

Off late ive been looking forward to cooking something new or the other for PD…Today I made something different than the regular curries…I made palak paneer today. For some it might not be a big deal but for me it was coz of 2 reasons

1. I haven’t cooked it earlier.

2. I cook regular vegetables everyday. This one has paneer so it automatically gets a richer curry.

But yes…my excitement of PD coming home and trying it out soon died after he called me at around 8.30 to say he would be late as he is meeting up with his friends from office… No wonder it is disappointing. And if I tell him anything he would tell me I keep picking faults every now and then…so I have chosen to be quiet and calm today. It’s going to be 10:00 in 10 minutes….and ya I think iam a lil hungry…but I don’t want to eat alone and dose off..would want to try it with PD. I hope he doesn’t eat out and come.

Its unfair on his part to ignore me…but he wouldn’t get it. If I write more ill write about his bad habbits which I don’t want to. Writing bad about your spouse’s represents that your not happy with him/her. Its not that with me I believe that it takes time to adjust and I think I am taking my own time and getting used to his habbits…

But one major difference ive noticed so far after getting married…boy friends are more concerned than husbands are …..its not a generic statement…I say it completely with my experience..and I don’t think it will be the same in your case….your lucky if its not the same in your case…

I hope the palak paneer doesn’t disappoint me as PD has…. a pic of my palak paneer. let me know if anyone wants a recipe..

A Want to Explore this New City

It’s been two weeks I moved to Bombay and no it shouldn’t be called Mumbai…and ive just been looking around the place I live…that is to get grocery and walk around a little or just go watch a movie to the nearest mall… But I know this city has a lot more to watch …since my childhood all ive heard “Bombay ki life bohot fast hai”…I think they say so for just a simple reason..this city is huge and it takes hell lot of time go from one place to another….and the fastest means to get to the next place is the trains…so ppl end up rushing for the trains… and so far I haven’t figured out any other reason for ppl to rush..

This is my first weekend in Mumbai…and I am excited to plan it but my lazy husband is not gaming for it…he is the biggest looser when it comes to planning and executing trips let it be to the nearby mall or a weekend getaway or a 15 day trip…

Wonder what makes ppl not explore their surroundings …enough of cribbing and talking bad abt him… ;)

Back to the title of the post….

I stay in Joegshwari where in our flat is located right next to the main road…so lots of noise of the vehicles…day in and day out… I haven’t got a chance to look around much..could be becoz iam busy with work at home or could be that I don’t want to go alone…But with the places ive been to I can say that Bombay is a city full of ppl.. you go to malls, bus stands, railway stations , Hotels, offices, roads every where and anywhere there are loads and loads of ppl creating traffic…

No wonder ppl say “Yeh hai Mumbai meri jaan”

Back to Writing

Yes It’s been really long that I’ve written my heart out and back to do it in full swing with good motivation levels…(they are not so good coz I’ve been wanting to write since last three days and I ended up doing it today)…

I wonder why I stopped blogging. Was there too much to write or things not worth writing or another simple reason could be that I am just too lazy.

But yes now with a lot of inspiration am getting back to what I think I do good and can improve on it if I do more often – Writing.

Lots of things have happened off late... if I haven’t mentioned in my earlier post then yes let me tell you the biggest change which has happened – I am Married now :p… I live in a different house, am surrounded with different people; I live in a room with a man J who I think loves me, a different city, etc. etc….too many changes to mention

Who have seen me before marriage and who would meet me now would be shocked to meet me and find me in this avatar….it’s a transformation I have gone thru (not by choice and not even by chance)…I don’t know whether am enjoying it or not coz there is no feeling in it…. But it seems to be going right so I am assuming I like it…

There’s more to come from my end…a post a day is surely what I plan to write. Or maybe two in a day could be possible too (out of too many things that I want to get out of my heart).
