Ok.Get Up!

I want to write. I want to write something interesting. Been away for so long that there are too many things to say, too many experiences to share. Where do I even begin! Life is teaching me a lesson everyday. I can see myself growing with each experience. And its all happening so fast. Just a couple of months ago I had absolutely nothing going on. Now there's so much. Sometimes more than I can handle. But its fine. Its something that I needed. I had always craved for independence. Now I have realized it comes with responsibilities. I am learning to take risks, to accept failure, to own up my mistakes, to rise up to challenge. I am learning to be assertive. I am learning to love without any expectations. I was living in oblivion. Not anymore. I am more determined than ever before.

Conversation with Her

Talking to you feels like I'm talking to my soul. You are my other half. I'll go the cliched way and quote Tom Cruise in the movie Jerry Macguire - "You complete me." And it couldn't be more true. You are my best friend,my sister and most importantly my soul friend. I don't have to explain anything to you. You just understand everything. We are always in the same situation at the very same time and sometimes its just so scary! Its also how like-minded we are. You held me when I cried. You nursed my broken heart. You cheered me up when I was down in the dumps.Together we had the craziest moments! Just thinking about them makes me laugh like I laughed at that very time. Zillion pictures clicked to capture every moment.We have the most hilarious conversations ever that only the two of us can understand.


"Item..Missing you ya.Come back soon."

Start singing a crazy song *Kuwa ma dub jaungi'* (For those who don't know, its a song from a Bollywood movie Page 3)

Only the two of us know what part of our brain triggered to sing such songs out loud :P

We both love Pink to the core.

We both love watching 'F.R.I.E.N.D.S.' & 'How I Met Your Mother' (Yes, you are soooo Lily, Hope you find your Marshall soon!)

Countless photos of us...

When I look at you I feel like I am looking in the mirror. You never let me give up on anything and at times even on myself. You're my sunshine. The world suddenly seems much brighter when we are together. I feel so lucky to have you in my life. Thinking about the time we've spent together makes me smile and cry at the same time.

So babe, all I wanna say is 'I LOVE YOU BESTIE' xoxo

The Deprived

Gosh I am writing after ETERNITY!!!!! Never thought I'll get this busy. I miss blogging so much. But darned assignments are sucking the life out of me :( Getting these insanely scary dark circles cuz of extreme sleep deprivation. Nahiiiiiii now who will marry me???? Hallucinations,dementia as you can see. Miss ghar ka khana. If  anyone dares get some home cooked food..then God save him/her. People smell it from miles away and pounce on it like pack of hungry wolves. Yet staying away from home isn't all that difficult as I thought it would be. Who am i kidding I am doing awesome here on my own :P For a girl who would rather starve than get up and cook, it has been no less than an achievement to live in a hostel! Anyhoo had my 1st n last freshers party last Sunday & man it was fun! Wish we could do that every weekend. I know I said in my last post there will be pictures of the campus in following posts but sadly I dont have a camera right now & I am super broke. So send in your donations to fund one :P You can also send food coupons of awesome restaurants  in Pune. The Hungry & Deprived souls will bless you. & yea yea that reminds me anyone from Pune amongst my lovely readers?? Please do suggest places to shop and eat in Pune. Pleeessss. Thank you. Come Again.

Ok. Dont get me wrong. Its just that I'm really short of time these days thanks to my awfully hectic schedule. So a quick post to know hows everyone doing?? I have been to drop by at all the blogs but I'm drowning in assignments. But hey I'm not complaining! I'm having the most amazing time of my life here at Symbiosis Institute of Media & Communication,Pune. After the initial anxiety of adjusting to a totally different environment, everything has finally fallen in place. I cant stop raving about this place & its people. Its a pot pourri of different cultures of the country. Its just so amazing meet people from all over the nation. I'm simply loving it. Feeling so privileged to be a part of the Symbiosis fraternity. Just waiting to get a new camera so i can share my experiences with y`all.

So whats new with everyone?? Stay awesome! :D

How you doing??

Hello everyone! hows everyone doing? I know I've been missing in action lately. So much happened in the last couple of weeks & I'm in still in a daze. I finally made to the college of my choice. Yayyyyyyyy!!!! :P :D I'm so over  the moon. The campus is one of the most beautiful ones we have in the country. Its like living in a resort :) I'm surrounded by greenery & mountains. & the monsoon is just adding to all the beauty. Enjoying nature at its best. (Will be uploading pictures soon!)Though its my first time away from home, I'm the least bit scared. I'm living my dream & things will only get better from here of that I'm sure. Such is my faith in God. He has been very kind in helping me realize my dream. Thank you Lord! You have been patient with me when I claimed to lose trust in you. You have been kind when I felt you weren't listening. Thank you for being there & for all that you have done. Thank you for being so patient when I was on an emotional roller coaster. Its funny how things work out in life. You never know whats waiting for you at the next bend in the road. Just when you think of giving up,life surprises you with a new ray of hope. So the key is to never stop believing in yourself & God. You never know God has in store for you. So just continue to work towards your goal & God will help you achieve them. God bless :)

P.S. - I'll keep y`all posted about the happenings out here.

Crazy times

Last week was a pretty hectic one for me. Its the wedding season & I attended two weddings back to back, that too in the same week. Saying that is was exhausting would be the understatement of the year! But I'm glad I'm done with it.

Also it was my best friend's birthday on 16th May. & the four of us got together after what seemed liked ages!! Our meetings are always a rocking affair like all other girl's night out. Full of laughter ( no we don't giggle.. its more like loud roaring laughter :P), sharing our most embarrassing stories, awesome food & ofcourse clicking millions of pictures!! Here's a glimpse of the awesome time we had...

When the going gets tough

Ok. So i wanna officially surrender. Wanna get on the highest roof & scream my lungs out that I give up. My patience is wearing thin now. I'm out of ideas & energy. But I dont wanna give up. Not just yet. Hope its just a phase & it will pass. Trying hard to believe that. Why such a cruel joke was played on me? I'm clearly not a sucker for practical jokes. I can see my dream which I nurtured for 3 years coming crashing down. I was so close I could almost touch it. But I'm still standing strong. Gotta start everything all over again. Just praying for some serious strength. Its a test & I'm determined to pass with flying colours. I'll work my way through it. Yes I can do it.

P.S. My first rant post. Feels good after taking it all out. Thanks for reading (whoever does) =] Guess I'll just go back to my previous post for some inspiration!

We are the Champions!

YES YES YESSSS!!! We did it! We finally won the coveted Cricket World Cup! Aaaaaaaaahh the feeling of euphoria.. What can I say what the others yet haven't about the Cricket mania. The cup which has been eluding us since 1987 is finally ours!! A dream which 1.21 billion Indians had seen finally came true on 2nd April,2010, a date which will be written in golden words in the history of not just India but also the cricketing world. The legendary Sachin finally saw his dream coming true,that too, at his homeground. Even though he missed out on the ton of tons but hey that's ok. His bigger wish came true that night. & Oh that look on Sachin's face. The victory lap by his teammates. Now even I can tell my kids about our World Cup win just like my folks did till now. The celebrations in India is not going to stop for a while it seems. & who's complaining!! I can't seem to stop smiling. Dhoni & Co., take a bow ;)

I Gotta Feeling!

I have never been one of those die-hard romantics. Not that I've never been in love (but more of that in some other post.) I throw a fit when friends drag me to mushy movies.While my pals sob inconsolably i can't stop giggling at the sheer melodrama that's called bollywood romance. Then my best friend gave me The Notebook. (For those who don't know, 'The Notebook' is a romantic novel written by Nicholas Sparks.) & I just fell in love with the concept of being in love. The Notebook is story of a man's undying love for his Alzheimer stricken wife who has no memory of her husband. Just imagine something like that. Loving a person who doesn't remember you at all. (& NO the novel is not a romcom like 50 first dates) Its about how two totally different people come together in spite of coming from two totally different worlds. The story is poignantly poetic. For me, it opened up a whole new perspective towards love & loving someone with all your heart & soul. Here are some excerpts from the book:

"I am nothing special; of this I am sure. I am a common man with common thought, & I've led a common life. There are no monuments dedicated to me and my name will soon be forgotten, but I've loved another with all my heart and soul, and to me, this has always been enough.". - Noah

"You are the answer to every prayer I've offered. You are a song, a dream, a whisper, and I dont  know how I could have lived without you for as long as I have. I love you Allie, more than you can ever imagine. I always have, and I always will." -Noah

I can read this book everyday & still not get enough of it. It just pierces a hole in my heart everytime I read it. Its a tale of love & miracle & how you have to believe in both for them to happen. The Notebook tugs your heartstrings & even the most cynical of a person won't be able to stop herself/himself from shedding atleast a tear.I must say Nicholas Sparks is one of the most gifted writer I've come across. His characters are ordinary people who have extra-ordinary love stories. It has made me believe that love can happen to anyone irrespective of their age,background,differences & situations. It can happen at the most unexpected time of your life & with the most unexpected person. Sparks has taught me how loving someone wholeheartedly can never turn into a bitter feeling of resentment.

Sparks' novels have made such an impact on me about love & relation that I hope someday I get to experience it. & also be the one who loves without any expectations. Because love is something that goes beyond all boundaries.

Souce: Tumblr photography xox :)

I will end by thanking my BFF Bijal for introducing me to Nicholas Sparks & always encouraging me to believe in love (even when I was laughing at her face for it). Love you girl. You're truly my bestest! :-*

Tell me which is your favorite Nicholas Sparks novel or any other story that has touched your life. Would love to hear your ideas about love or maybe your love stories ^_^

The Game is On

image courtesy: total sports madness
Soooooo stage for The World Cup Cricket is set. & "I'm excited" will be the understatement of the year!! Cricket mania has gripped the entire nation & I'm not spared either. For the next month & a half I'll be living & breathing cricket. India is entering the tournament as a favorite by popular choice *woohoo* After the oh so dismal performance in the 2007 edition, its got a fresh new brigade ready to take on the challenge & I'm sure they won't disappoint. The best part is India is going to host a big chunk of matches *woohoo again* :D So the excitement increases manifold & I'm dizzy with happiness *heart beats faster* (Ok,calm down Raey) 

Now I'm just gonna hope for the best performance ever by the Men in blue *looks above & gives a long hard stare* (They better do God or else...Grrrrr!!) 

So if you're even half as excited as I am do give a shout out for Team India in the comments section :)

Sunset Boulevard

Hey All!!

Hows it going with everyone? I have been MIA (missing in action that is) due to my exams which now seem to go on for eternity. Cant wait for them to be over so that I can Go SHOPPING (I'm in dire need of clothes!! Hell when am I not! Thats a different story.) Also i missed the Kala Ghoda Art Festival *sob sob*  STUPID EXAMS again! Anyhoo enough with the whining. I finally went on my maiden trip to Pune..YAY!! I was there for the 2nd round of my MBA entrance (Yes I'm an MBA aspirant,did I never mention that?) The city is just absolutely beautiful & so diverse. The main city is so vibrant that you will never even a moment of boredom! The outskirts of Pune is equally amazing. The picturesque landscape will just take your breath away. I saw the most beautiful sunset of my life. The campus of the institute I wanna get into is simply superb! Now I so badly hope to get through!! & the best part is I didn't get homesick at all while I was there. All because its so similar to Mumbai. Can't wait to go back again! Keeping fingers crossed :)

Hope & Faith

Its been a crazy couple of weeks!! Results,admissions anxiety,wedding season!! PHEW! A gazillion different things are happening around me..& all at the same time. The year has begun on a promising note & I hope it continues..! :) Things are finally looking good after a not so happening 2010. 2011 is so going to be my year fellas!! ;) Finally I'm leaving the baggage behind & moving towards a new horizon. Just when you think that things are never going to get better, a ray of sunshine just pierces through the blanket of darkness & lights up your life! What certain events have taught me is that Never Give Up because Happiness is just right around the corner & as someone rightly said that whatever happens..happens for the best! You might not realize it now..but eventually you will know that God has the best plans for you. All you need to do is never let your faith in him wander. Like Martin Luther said "All who call on God in true faith, earnestly from the heart, will certainly be heard, and will receive what they have asked and desired." & he couldn't be more right!! :)

P.S. Thanks JJ for inspiring me to write my first post of 2011. You're truly one of my bestest friends!! :)
