Sapno mein jo roz kaha hai wo....

Hellllllooooo...

How u folks doin?
This specially goes out to someone who says he's interestd in reading wat I write, and complaind about the stagnant situation of my blog for the last couple of days :-)

Diwali was gud, lotsa guests and lotsa food. It was irritatin at times to smile n yak thru d day n nite, but thn I know some ppl wud tell me I'm lucky to hav my family n relatives around me rpdurin celebration time. Agreed! But thn its not all rosy either! helpin around d house at odd times, no time to enjoy an afternoon siesta, no time to study or hang out wid frens...

My wkends hav been very good tho... have been roamin around n havin kathi kababs (yummm) n caramel popcorn (slurp slurp). went to scream as i'd informd ya n also saw OSO. dint enjoy d disco party too much (surprisingly given m sucha party freak), but d scene wasnt gud enuf for me. That dint affect d others who had a gala time... OSO was gud, SRK ROCKSSS... but as i'v told quite a few of u, i cant c srk splashin around in d water. i mean akshay kumar or salman cud possibly carry it off, not sum1 as graceful n respectable as king khan. i hav dis image of him as a wonderful hubby n a great dad... cant c him doin a dard-e-disco like ppl half his age.. however, he lukd pretty cool as d younger Om in his rebirth... did u know dat d movie's like rishi kapoor's karz? rebirth n all of dat... arjun rampal kills srk n deepika (who plays arjun's undercover wife and luks SOOO luvly in d 70's getup) n srk is reborn and remembers evrythin (aka karan arjun style) n thn d badle ki aag rises n blah blah... d climax is ok ok, whr deepika's real bhoot (real bhoot?!!) kills mike (arjun) n all's well dat ends well... OOPS I DID IT AGAIN!!!! ;-) d movie has some wonderful dialogues like "agar kisi cheez ko aap poori shiddat se chaho to har zarra aapko usse milane ki sazish mein lag jata hai" (or sumthin to dat effect) n d cliched "if it's not happy, its not d end"... a lil stretchd but not bad at all... certainly betr dan sawariya whr i heard u shud send sum1 u want to take revenge from!! OSO songs r very very hummable... aankho mein teri ajab si ajab si adaye haiii.....
hello? whr did i start off on dis movie review?? I guess sum1's rubbin off on me... m BLABBERIN too much ;-)

anyways, i got an outstandin (O grade) in my social psych subject, so m quite happy... hopin for d best in the other subjects as well... my exams startin dis week... pracs on d 16th n thn d 21st followd by theory papers on d 27th, 29th n d 3rd... NO mood to study at all... i ask myslf evryday y m doin MA; sick of studies... but i aint a quitter, will do my best...

work's goin well... m takin a break upto mid-dec coz of my exam n wont probably log on very often either. so m gona miss u n u gona miss me (hopefully)! but whn i get bac, wil hav lots to tell u (as usual)... might take a trip sumplace early dec aftr d exams but othrwise, its routine as usual. got sum troubles in life, which r (touch wood) sortin up, and thins wil only get betr frm here.

Wish u guys luck... n lotsa happiness...
Luv,

Deadly Diwali

It's almost Diwali n my mum's gone berserk... she's cleanin d house wid scary strength n enthusiasm... n unfortunately, wid my PLs on, I'v no choice but to trudge along n do d tasks she tells me to... my bro, dad n sis-in-law conveniently leave for work as i luk at thm wid a sad n envious expression on my face... i cant c mum workin alone n i dont wan2help wid d cleanin! dilemma... barely managd to clean 4 shelves of my clothes-cupboard, n m puttin off cleanin my book-rack until i can... it's gona take hourssssssssss!!! why bother?!! fortunately, my tuts n job dis week gave me a breather (and a wonderful excuse!)

This brings me to my topic for d day. Strong ppl lead hard lives – coz they hav a choice n also d capability to go either way. Like my mum. She has d choice to either do/not do d spring-cleaning. Though she's not physically in gr8 shape, her willpower sails her through the task. With frail folks, there’s no choice as they’v already given up on their life and most other thins. Hence, lesser the confusion! D worst predicament is surely of d ppl who lie in between these extremes; while their minds/hearts r strong enuf to come up with 2 choices, and they do choose one, they find it tough to go all the way. Which is exactly what I’m feelin. Havin made a very important decision voluntarily, I’m switchin bac n forth like a pendulum – I think I cud go bac to wat was, n thn I think I shud stick to my decision single-mindedly if I’m to live a betr n happier life… Each time I succeed in dis endeavor, someone conveniently puts a dent into my carefully built wall… Now however, I seem to hav come to terms... Hopefully, thins wil change from now on...

Awrite, I know i dint make much sense thr... but newes, had to get it outa my system, n thr it goes! Here's sumthin u'l agree wid... Kids wil b kids – whether they’r 1,10, 20 or 50! My parents still fret whn my bro comes bac frm work late. I mean, cut it out, he's 27! Besides, he's got a hotel mngt job which entails long & late hours, yet my dad stays awake till he knocks n says "all fine, m home" n my mum keeps callin n askin him whn he's b bac from work n "drive safely haan beta".... m not complainin, they do d same for me. But i really wonder, will I b d same whn i hav kids? probably yes.... parents r amazin ppl, aren't they?? u can shout at thm, say anythin u want, behave anyway u want, n still they luv u... who else wud take ur crap? however, i myself forget this very often n tk thm for granted... n regret later...

Well, lets stop d topic before I get too senti (sniff, sniff!) I'm jus hangin out at home these days as I said before. Uni's out as syllabus over n Diwali here. M spendin time readin, studying for tuts, watchin tv, chattin wid frens, etc (and helpin mum, groaaannnn)... wkend's here but no plans yet. maybe a movie wid frens. long time no party!!! HIGH TIME...

That reminds me, i saw "Bhool Bhullaiya" last week. Saw a movie after ages (for a movie buff like me, even 2 weeks is ages!) It was gud, not comedy as expected, but thrillin n tp. Akki as usual is at his best, but d rest of d crew is SAD... its only towards d end dat d movie picks up... Oh ya, for those who dont kno, d BHOOT is VIDYA BALAN ;-) dont thank me, it's ok... hehe... i LUVVVVVV doin dat! She's amazin as d deceased danseuse "manjulika" - her actin is terrific. luvd dat part... n scared too!

nuthin else, mebe Mumbai Salsa dis Sunday n thn Salsa at Scream. Touch wood!!
Have a gr8 wkend folks. Ta!!!

Luv,
Lonely Princess
