Such is life...

A phonebook and cell memory full of contacts,
But no one to call when you desperately want to speak your heart out.
Such is life...

A million bucks to spend, and no friend to blow it with,
When you had that someone, you were too busy trying to make an extra buck.
Such is life...

At times I think homosexual relations make sense,
The depth of emotions of each gender can only b understood by another of the same kind.
We fight over our differences and keep expecting to be understood.
Such is life…

The very son who dotes on the mother,
Becomes devoted to the wife in days so few.
The mom still prays for him.
Such is life…

You crib about the bad things,
And then you adjust to living in situations worse.
Your optimism and energy disappear with time.
Such is life…

When everything is wrong the smallest thing brings delight,
Something that goes unnoticed in rosier times,
Becomes the single reason to live for.
Such is life…

Good things don’t really happen to good people,
Though we would sure like to believe so.
The wick…

Jaanam Samjha Karo

Sometimes I think you're an illusion,
Yet the tears rolling down my morose face are so real.
I wanted you though you made me cry with each breath…


Just a few lines that passed through my mind and left a mark… Thought I’d share with you…

"No one knows why some things work out and why some don't." A lovely line from the movie Notting Hill. A lovely movie, though I don't like Julia Roberts and Hugh Grant looks silly when he repeats every word/sentence twice.

The weather in Pune is going from bad to worse. It's cold one evening and burning hot the next. It rains without reason at times, and I'm suffering for it! Caught a horrible cold... Sick of sniffling and sneezin... I hate being unwell! Benadryl is my knight in shining armor at the moment ;-)

The Bacardi Megamix party was not as great as I'd anticipated. DJ Suketu played stupid tracks and kept admonishing the people when they weren't shouting loud enough. Why would they when the music was so tthanda? Th…

Anuja Times

A round of applause, fellas. I finally bought new shoes. Nike. White. Very simple. Very stylish. Yeah.

Still no progress with the jeans though. Spent over 2 hours at Mega Mart the other day, checked out a variety of jeans. All types – slim fit, straight fit, stretch and tapering. Hated them all. Quite a few sizes, too. (Let’s skip the details about this!) No luck. Shopping for jeans and shoes is a guy thing, and I find myself extremely in need of a man when I have to shop for such stuff.

The matter was further complicated by a colleague who expressed that boot-cuts (my favorite style in bottoms) are outdated, and the latest in fashion are skin-fitting jeans. After my unproductive trip to the jeans section, the verdict is – trend or no trend, it’s boot-cuts for me. Spykar, here I come…

Hey, check out this awesome piece of information – Dorabjee now sells Ben and Jerry’s ice-cream! It’s obviously dear, with a single can costing anywhere between 400-600 Indian Rupees. But, I’m sure a specia…

Sweet Pain

Ek ladke aur ek ladki kabhi dost nahi ho sakte…

Quite a cheesy line, eh? I used to hate this sentence when I was a teenager coz most of my best buddies were guys. And each time I hung out with them, people used to tease me and smell something fishy. While the guy and I were very sure of our status, the public had a gala time cooking up stories and gossiping to no end. I was bugged of them all… Why can’t a guy and girl be just friends, for Pete’s sake?!!

Now I think it is right. A girl and a guy cannot be friends. Pyar kahi na kahi se tapak hi padta hai...

I mean come to think of it… A guy who understands a girl is a jackpot… And if he also cares for her and is there for her anytime she needs him, then it’s an offer any woman would be a fool to refuse… Similarly, if a guy finds the right kind of girl who can let him live his own life and yet make life together productive and fun, then he would not want to let go of this lady. Right?

Right.

So, you see, be it Maine Pyar Kiya or Kuch Kuch Hot…

I have been tagged in FB before (FaceBook you dummies!) but for the first time ever I was tagged on my blog by Ms. penandpaper. This comes pretty late (she tagged me on July 26), but as they say, better late than never...

A – Available/Single? I'm a spinster, and I don't think the wedding bells are ringing anytime soon. Does that answer the Q??

B – Best friend? Myself.

C – Cake or Pie? Cake, you bet!!!

D – Drink(s) of choice? Mum-made hot ginger chai, Zaika hot coffee, cold coffee at most places or orange juice without sugar!

E – Essential item you use every day? It used to be Vaseline lip-guard, not so often these days... And how can I forget saunf (=fennel seeds)...

F – Favorite colour? The entire spectrum - I'm a colorful Cancerian... Blue, lavender, yellow, green, pink, red...

G – Gummy Bears Or Worms? Who cares...??!!!!

H – Hometown? Washim in Vidarbha, but I've been in Pune forever.

I – Indulgence? Good hangouts, good food, movies, hookah and keychains :-)

J – January or F…

My first ever vote... I was so excited when I went to the polling booth yesterday :-) I turned 18 six winters ago, but only now am I a responsible citizen! Der aaye, durust aaye!! Cheers!!

It was a HUGE move on the part of the state government to declare a holiday for the election. In fact, offices were threatened to be penalized if they remained open. Think of the loss of productivity! Honestly, if NOW the Indians don't go to vote, they're a useless lot. Jaago Re to no avail...

Waise toh I hate procrastination, but when it comes to spring-cleaning (or Diwali saaf-safai, in the patriotic nomenclature) then I can be exceedingly lazy. There are times when I lay my cupboard bare for no special reason and clean and arrange stuff diligently. (Recall the time I discovered I had over 70 tops and t-shirts?) But come Diwali and I develop an aversion to any sort of mopping spree.

Could be because my mum is the Devil Incarnate when it comes to scrubbing the entire house, walls, ceiling, cl…

Kark-Kanya

Told you about the mail I got related to sunsigns and What Your Rashee... Couldn't resist sharing my own...

Waise toh I've told you quite a bit about my birthdate before, but I loved reading these details... And I'd like to save them here on my blog for ever...

I am actually a Leo-Cancer cusp, coz my bday falls on the 23rd of July, but in WYR categorizes me as Cancer. It goes like this...

Have you met a Cancerian woman recently? Are you a little confused as to what she really is - chirpy or somber or distant? She is all of these and still, she is none of these...

More confused? A Cancerian woman has mood swings every now and then and these are some of her mood swings only. However, her basic personality traits remain the same. She is very sensitive, emotional, kind and caring. Now's the catch! Most of her traits will be hidden behind a shell of indifference and aloofness.

You will have to gently coerce a Cancerian girl to get out of that shell and come into the big bad worl…

Jao Naaa...

The rains are lashing the city and I'm wondering whether we are in the midst of the monsoons... It's already Diwali, man! Time to say "Jao Naaa" to the rainfall :-D

Very rarely do I come across a phenomenon that I cannot clearly categorize as good or bad, or anywhere in between. Looks like I’ve struck upon such an event - “What’s Your Rashee?” starring Harman Baweja and Priyanka Chopra.

I can't decide whether I liked the movie or not. I’d been very eager to see it right since the time it released 2 weeks ago, but my health and busy schedule (ahem!) didn’t permit it. When I finally caught the movie at E-square on Gandhi Jayanti, it was only after a long wait courtesy technical problems in Screen 1… The film was certainly lengthy, after all they had to show 12 different sun-signs. (Piggy Chops was hoping to enter the Guinness Book of World Records for being the first female actress to portray 12 characters in a single movie, don’t know what finally happened.)

Breaking News

Pune: For the last several months, a virus is known to infest the life of a loving-grandma-in-the-head-and-kid-at-heart writer and trainer in the city. This virus has now been identified by eminent scientists and researchers as Love and Companionship Deficiency Syndrome (LCDS).

Symptoms of this deadly virus include:
Wanting to feel loved, secure and relaxed all the time
Staring morosely at nothing for hours on end
Becoming extremely philosophical or detached
Desiring to be pampered and taken care of
Weeping at the drop of a hat (or a pin, whatever’s easily available)
Humming slow, sentimental songs
Wishing to be held close and patted to sleep
Yearning for unconditional trust, love and companionship

These individuals may appear busy and social, but scratch the outer layer and you will see how intensely they require the intimacy that surrounds the “blessed ones” like a warm protective envelope.

Our reporter met one such person and he (name withheld to protect identity) stated “I feel like a puppy …
