Signal to blissful Life

Hey got this as forward (Probably this is dedicated to all new mommies :)):

Small Additions

I know its been long time that I had promised to write about my Mount Abu Trip. But my lappy is still not working and office is keeping me very much busy.
Meanwhile, my best friend gave birth to a baby boy. Many Many congratulations to Swati. The name has to be on letter 'Chi'... so think about some hot names and do tell me. I suggested Chironji Lal.. :).

Also, one of my another close friend is expecting in Oct. Congratulations to her as well. She didn't tell me, as she wanted it to be surprise, but we got to know. So swthrt, take care. Probably this is season of babies and me becoming Mausi :)
Will post very soon about recent happenings.

Ticket to Joy

Me going for a break for 3 days. I will be meeting my mom dad after 4 months. We have planned a trip to Mount Abu and places nearby. Though our train tickets are still in waiting and hoping that a miracle happens and we get seats..but no matter how we go, we will go.
So await for a long blog on my trip.

P.S.: Yesterday, we went to see a play, ‘Biwi-O-Biwi’. Andy got stuck in traffic and reached 10 minutes late, so he got entry only after interval. The main reason to go for the play was Andy always calls me Biwi. ;)

Love And Frenz

Yesterday night, a thought ran in my mind. I have been praising Jaane tu ya Jaane na… In fact on Friday when I was reading Richa’s blog, I wondered on the reason as to why Rats and Meow came back.
They were just friends. That’s absolutely true. They never loved each other. Infact their parents wanted them to get married, but they didn’t. They never fell in love. It was only when they found their respective partners to be not up to the mark; they felt the need of each other. Meow’s fellow partner was aggressive and Rats was super stupid.
What if, if one of them had found a great partner? Would then they would have returned back? Would they have realized they loved each other? I still say they never loved each other, they just enjoyed being frenz. And it’s not always true that frenz are great partners. The title therefore is Love and friends and not Love Vs Frenz. What’s your take on it?

Active to Live Darshan

Ahhh.... after a long time I slept till 10 in morning on Saturday. What a delight it was!!! And of course, as usual Saturday breakfast had to include Eggs (Andy's favorite). When we were having our brunch, realised our Tata Sky TV was giving some trouble. We could only see Active Darshan. So saw Shirdi Baba ke darshan. And then, hona kya tha, Andy said why to see on TV; let’s go there only. And within half an hour we were in our car. After 15 minutes, realised I have forgotten quite a lot of things at home. So, we decided to buy all of it from Nasik. We havent been there before, so asked a taxi driver. He told us to go straight down the road till Nasik.

The weather was absolutely perfect for a long drive. It drizzled throughout the journey. Everywhere the environment was lush green. I couldn’t imagine that even Mumbai have such places. Everything was so clean and pure.

We played soft songs and I kept clicking the pics. And suddenly, we saw the best thing, a rainbow. I don’t remember when I had seen last rainbow (maybe in my college). I just loved it.

We stopped at a food plaza after around 3 hours. We both were craving to have a hot tea in such a fabulous weather. I bought some eatables from there. We both love munching something or the other while on such drives. Finally we were back to road. At around 6 pm we reached Nasik. Now we needed to shop. A guy told us that Vishal Garments is a little ahead and we will get all stuff from there. So, we reached there and grabbed everything we needed in just 10 minutes and again went straight.

But how could our journey be so simple. There has to be some adventure. After around 35-40 minutes, we realized that probably we are on wrong road. And yes, someone confirmed that we had to take turn from Vishal Garments. We were almost 20 kms far from that turn. Ooops!!!!.. It was already 7:00 pm, and was getting dark. But never mind, we finally reached Shirdi at around 9:30 pm.

And again the adventure starts. We started looking for a hotel to stay. Most of them were full or very costly. I was in mood to pay thousands of rupees for just a couple of hours. Finally, we found a decent and cheap place (the decent not as in Jab we met ;)), but God wanted us to have some more adventure. When we were just stepping out of hotel to get in car to look for dinner, a miserable thing happened. Since, it was raining in Shirdi, Andy asked me to stay at the entrance gate, for the meantime he will get the Car. And pati ka pyaar hanikarak sabit hua. The road was in deplorable condition and car got stuck in middle of raod in mud. I sat in car and Andy and a guard tried to push the car. But no use, the whole road was totally muddy. Finally, we called a truck wala to pull our car with his truck. Ahh...after half an hour ki mehanta, we were out of it. Meanwhile, when in car I had ruined clothes of Andy, just like the Ad of a detergent powder. :)

We took dinner finally at 11:30 pm. We were lucky, since food served was damn tasty, absolutely home made. :)) We decided that we won’t get up early next morning, since we had to drive back and we were damn tired by now.

So, next morning got up and got ready by 8:30, only to realize I had lost my earring. Aaaahhhh….why meeee…. I searched whole room, but couldn’t find anything. Never mind, we checked out of hotel and left for temple. Finally after 2.5 hours walking in zigzag paths, we had darshan. I must say, the temple had nice arrangements. Everyone walked in line, with coolers and fans almost at every corner. Not only that, but the place was very clean and nicely maintained.

I was damn tired by now. Poor Andy, he had to drive the whole way back. This time while returning, we were trying to be very cautious at every turn so as to not to miss the correct road to Mumbai. Voila, after around half an hour we were at a beautiful road. It just looked like the road to dreamland. Absolutely, fresh green color, with a beautiful path and small small waterfalls.

Only after a while, we found that this is a better road, since we don’t have to go to Nasik. Instead, it reaches to a village called Ghoti, from where we will join straight on the Highway. I was so tempted there, that I asked Andy to give me the car. And HE DID. Wohuuu…. I drive for around 20-25 kms. We saw beautiful windmills surrounded by floating clouds. It looked as if we were in scotland. I loved it so much.

Finally, I gave car back to Andy, and slept. I know its wrong, I shudnt be sleeping. But I was tired and I love it (Besides it was Sunday, my sleeping day). When I woke up saw it was all fog and I actually don’t know how anyone could drive. It was just a blind driving. But finally, we reached home in evening around 6:00.

It was for the first time that I had gone for such a long drive with Andy. But no doubt, it was beautiful.

Again 'A'-tagged

I have again been attacked by a tag. This time Nidhi has tagged me.

The rules for this tag:
1) Link the person who tagged you.
2) Mention the rules on your blog.
3) Tell 6 unspectacular quirks of yours.
4) Tag 6 following bloggers by linking them.
5) Leave a comment on each Tagged blogger's blogs, letting them know that they have been Tagged.

So here are my Unspectacular quirks.

1. I am damn punctual and hate people coming late. Infact, I always reached my tuitions 10 minutes before the time and had to wait outside early morning in fog. Many a times I don’t go to places if I know I would get late. Though this rule never applied to my college lectures after 1st year. :)

2. I love my bed and pillow. They are my worthy possessions, thus always want it to be clean. I hate even a single crease on my bed sheet. As soon as I return from office, the first thing is to jump into bed thus I make sure to clean it absolutely before leaving from home.

3. I hate shoes lying here and there. I want them to be placed in the rack very properly. My sister hates me for it. She has a bad habit of putting shoes under the sofa and has always been one of a reason for my scolding. After marriage, Andy has replaced my sister.

4. I can’t teach anyone. I am totally impatient. I hate to repeat anything what I say twice. Though, in college I have been famous for my reading speed, so always had to explain the topics to other. But then, they were very careful to note down everything, while I explain, to escape from my fury.

5. I am restless or rather over enthusiastic. As soon as I get my exam paper, I want to write down all my answers in 5 minutes. I always have this thought running in my mind to jump to the next question else I will forget the answer. No matter how lengthy the paper is I can complete my paper 20 minutes before time, else I fail in exam. :) People call me Shatabadi Express. Not only in exams, have I behaved the same, it has been with everything I have dealt with. If I know a thing I jump to complete it soon. My previous company PL knew how to get majority of work done from me. I think I am a typical Gemini.

6. I hate dumb girls. Dumb as in those who overact in front of males to be helpless. Infact, many a times I actually have to run away from the place to stop me from hitting them on their face. I hate it when they talk in those funny voices of Daisy.

I Tag (Sorry they are more than Six):
Harsh: You have already been tagged by Nidhi.

Thanks Nidhi, this blog actually made me think of my nasty habits which can irritate so many people. Also, realized I have so many of them and was so difficult to find best 6 among them. :)
