If I have been listening to songs, and MR. Hubby has been busy on his two new phones, E-63 and Blackberry. You can imagine the heights of using the phone, that he is carrying his blackberry in toilet as well to check all the pending mails. I don't want to blame him, since he gets around 200-300 mails a day, obviously he need to check it at home as well. But .... :(((
Luckily, my in-laws are here, so I don’t get that bored. Didi will be coming on Sunday and I am sure after that Anand will not be able to use any of his gadgets in front of her son. After all he is just 1.5 years and loves to snatch all gadgets...:)))
By the way… Happy Makar Sankrati!!!. I just called up didi to wish her and I am so jealous. This is first time that I am not flying kites on Sankrati. Till last year I have always been in Jaipur to celebrate. Mostly on 13th night my brother would go to Nana-Nani’s place, so that on14th he could be on terrace by 5:30 am.
I miss all that, since its been so many years that he has not been in Jaipur on Sankrat. 14th January was always associated with a special sweet dish, “Finni” and then nani ke haath ke special “daal ke pakode”. Luckily, mom is here so I will get to eat all these things. But still, I don’t feel today as that special day. I miss those relatives who will all gather at one place. I miss my Mama, he has got so busy that we rarely talk now. Earlier he and my brother would go mad after kites. Mama would start gathering kites and manja since December vacations. It was a full family gathering reason. But, everyone is so busy, busy with work, busy at home, busy with worldly affairs that no one actually even have time to call and wish on this special occasion.
No sad talks on happy day… Eat lots of Gajak, til and pakode..!!! And those who can fly kites…please fly one for me as well!!!

It was the best time of 2008… I had 5 full days at home without any travelling to hometown. We were around 5-6 people at Andy’s frenz (my boss). For a change all of us were non-smokers, non-drinkers. I cooked up dinner at his place. It was so fun, making guy’s sit and asking them to chop the vegetables : )). And then we all saw Slumdog Millionaire on projector. By the way in afternoon I had seen Madagascar II at Vadala. I loved Slumdog Millionaire. Previously I had read the novel on which it is based, Q&A by Vikas Swarup. The movie is so different at every point yet captured very well. The romantic scenes are so aptly tied up with emotional melodrama. IMDB has given it the rating of 8.7 and stands at 45th position. I especially liked the kid who plays the young Jamal, the hero. I think it will release in India by last week of January, and I must say everyone should watch it once.
Friday and Saturday went in full shopping with two of the friends who had come over from Hyderabad. We bought all those clothes which we had dreamt of. Though we know that we will end up keeping them in cupboard only, but it gave such immense pleasure.
Sunday went in reminding me that gone are the happy days. Monday blues had started by Sunday evening only. I am feeling so lazy since morning. By the way whole January my in laws are visiting us in here, so will be little hectic. But of course it’s fun, since my sister in law is coming for the first time with her 1.5 year old horribly naughty son. I simply adore him. Will soon post his pics!!
