Learning Kannada

September 4, 2012 at 11:21 am | Posted in Bangalore | 15 Comments

And I started learning kannada. Spoke to a Kannada school teacher to teach me kannada and he said he will if I can arrange a batch size of minimum 5 people. Asked in the apartment and quite a many people said that they will be interested. Of the interested bunch , 4 did make to the first class. And so we had our first class on last weekend.

Hopefully ..I will soon do a post in Kannada ๐Ÿ˜‰ ..Just hoping that the classes do last.

Back to our roots ..for good

August 31, 2012 at 4:06 pm | Posted in Introspection, Society | 5 Comments

Sometime back I did this post about how we , this generation , has been moving from some good practices to bad ones , just in an attempt to become cool.

Today I recalled this after reading a discussion on a face book group , about cloth diapers and sanitary pads ๐Ÿ™‚

Do you remember those triangular pieces of clothes that were used before tinycare and pampers days ?

Do you remember the cotton pads between old cloth / gauze that our moms made once in a month..when carefree was unaffordable and ultrathins unimaginable ?

Those days are back for good , however this time in style. And we are soon going to adapt those practices again , coz the west has already started doing so ๐Ÿ™‚

Why do people s…

Why do people shy away from saying what they believe. Why do they behave all friendly on face and wish that you or your race should have never existed. Why do I hate this hypocrisy so much ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

The ”Just Married, Please Excuse” Contest

August 23, 2012 at 11:31 am | Posted in Blogging, Husband, Memories | 12 Comments

~nm pointed me to a contest on Y’s blog where we have to write funny incidents during our married life. The contest has generated a few very funny entries and reminded me of few incidents that happened during early days of my marriage.

So here I go …

If you are a north indian or you are exposed to north indian culture , you must be aware that marriage does mean being sleep deprived and extremely tired apart from all the other things. So most of the wedding ceremonies were over except the much hyped “First Night” that typically happensย  the next night after the marriage.ย  And the bride and groom have been awake for almost 36 hours if not more , before the first night.

That “NIGHT” ..I was just waiting to retire in my room , was anxious thanks to the movies , but was sleepy ..just so typical me. And at 10 in the night , I was told to change into a fresh sari and do some make up by my SILs. Little did I know that they were asking me to get ready for “First night” and nor did I know that its going to be so FILMY ๐Ÿ˜›ย  Not that I minded filmy style ๐Ÿ˜‰ย  but then wearing a sari again at 10 pm with makeup and jewellary ..aaaah.

After some time I was all decked up…taken to my room which was decorated with roses and crysanthem and looked lovely and my tall dark and handsome guy stood there in silk kurta …so sweet ..I thought.ย  Then they clicked a few photos , in which I look almost drunk ..my eyes drooping with sleep.ย  And then they left us there alone ๐Ÿ™‚

So whatever happened ..or did not happen that night , my husband did woke me up at 4 am in the morning.ย  Well ..can someone be angry with a loving husband , so soon in married life …I almost felt like shouting , its just 4 am. But when I opened my eyes I also was out of the bed within seconds.

The bedsheet was red …okay not with what comes to your mind ..it was red with the rose petals that were spread on it before we sleep.ย  Uff we cursed ourselves for being so filmy and not clearing the bed before lying down.

But what next ..the newly wedded couple scrubbed the bedsheet together in the bathroom , sneaked from the back door and dried it in the back yard and just kept praying that no one questions ๐Ÿ˜›

Romantic ..isn’t it !!

—————————————————————————————————————–

Thats not all ..

After a day or so I was packing my stuff for our honeymoon. My SIL’s 4 year old was tagging along with me since I was married , excited and curious about having a Mami ๐Ÿ™‚ That meant cute company and not romantic sneak peeks , coz everytime hubby would sneak in , he was there ๐Ÿ™‚

So the plan was that FIL would take us to temple and then will drop us to the station for the honeymoon further. My little companion asks me , “Mami aap ja rahe ho”ย  and I said yes. Then he asks …”kiske saath”. And I told ” Mama aur Nanu ke sath” , meaning husband and FIL. Pat came the reply from him in a full volume …” Arreee , honeymoon teen log thode hi jaate hai”..3 people don’t go for honeymoon :P.

I just looked around wide mouthed and cursed myself for underestimating the general knowledge of the little guy ๐Ÿ™‚

——————————————————————————————————————-

Now that I have started writing ..I can think of a few more ..but thats for later .

So whats your story ? ๐Ÿ˜‰

Pedestrians..

August 13, 2012 at 12:09 pm | Posted in Bangalore, Just Like That, Walking | 2 Comments

..I am sure you know this ..no one in this country cares for your life…except the people waiting at home.ย Please be responsible and careful about your own self.

What if you have offices on both sides of an eight lane road and not a single pedestrian crossing/ bridge , you cannot run and cross the road.

What if you don’t have any space between the drain and the road, you need to choose what is less risky ..the drain or the road.

What if you walk off the road at the mercy of car drivers , bikers , traffic police men , contruction workers ..its your life after all.

So be careful ..coz no one else does.

Wondering..

August 9, 2012 at 5:14 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | 4 Comments

..how can some people talk so sweetly all the time ? Even if its the demand of their job ..still ..don’t they get tired of it.

One example would be a HR guy in our company ..he makes you feel like an asset, whenever you talk to him ..even though you know he might not mean half of what he says or may be 100% of what he says ..he sounds genuine ๐Ÿ™‚

Ofcourse I admire the skill ..wish I had it too.

Rains ..Then and now

July 26, 2012 at 5:18 pm | Posted in Childhood, Rain | 11 Comments

When I was a kid ..rains meant ..

paper boats

frogs , yellow ones and tadpoles

Ants ..loads of them and sitting in dark to avoid them and cuddling and joking with each other and stamping on ants when they find their way inside.

puddles and jumping in them

getting wet on way back to school and shivering in the living room to make mummy shout at us for making everything wet and for taking bath soon to avoid cold and we secretly enjoying that

rain coats ..the blue one

walking in water thats upto the knee in school and collecting the red flowers that will fall off the trees

or a rainy day holiday from school that some one would inform while we were already half way and that would bring the biggest grin possible.

Now ..rains mean..

clothes in the balcony that will not dry for 2 days

kids who will soon catch cold

Ants …when near my elder one ..make him freak and when near my younger one , make me freak.

puddles ..that make me worry about my footwear and dress

getting wet and making my house wet…and kids getting wet and catching cold

maid who is the only one to still claim a rainy day holiday

When did I stop enjoying simple pleasures of nature ? Is that what adulthood does to you ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

How do you decide your passwords ?

July 23, 2012 at 2:18 pm | Posted in Just Like That | 9 Comments

No no , not asking about those password changing rules , like it should be alpha numeric , 8 charaters long etc.

Every 3 weeks or so the machine prompts us to change passwords. These cannot be repeated for a very long time. And obviously we need to remember them too. So they should be sensible yet no obvious kinds.

So how do you decide those kind of passwords ? Do you keep names of friends as passwords ? Do generate a random string and store it somewhere ? Do they reflect your mood ?

Mine do. My passwords reflect my mood on the day I change them. They will be happy / sad / abstract / philosphical based on my mood.ย 

So can you guess what’s my current password, that I changed todayย ๐Ÿ™‚

ย P.S : I resigned from my current company today.

Also , here is a post about Aryan’s 6th Birthday Party :
