Marching on…

Sometimes he wished,

He never crossed her path,

To open his heart out,

To open his arms …

Alas, the fool didn’t know 

What was in the store for him.

Enamored with her,

He still continued to care,

But she rocked his world.

Turned it upside down.

Literally capsized it.

The intrepid he,

Still marched unafazed

Learning it 

For the first and the last time.

I know this will be clichรฉd but still what’s on my mind ….

The other day mom told me about this trip she was going, 

It is for 3 days she said,

And I was okay,

Not thinking about it much,

In fact not thinking about it at all….

Today was her first day at the trip.

And though I talked to her on the phone

But it feels like I haven’t met her since ages,

It feels incomplete,

The glasses of tea was one less,

The food for only four instead of five,

The after dinner walk…

Felt something missing.

Family

There’s nothing in this world greater than your family.

Believe me.

Recently I watched “kapoor and sons since 1921” , again, a Hindi film about a dysfunctional family.To the outside world, everything was perfect,but reality: ugly on the inside.

It’s an inexplicable feeling to realize  much someone is worth to you until he/she goes away…..

We sometimes feel so angered, irritated, cheated, probably even down because of what our family did.

Same thing happened in the film. After the crash of her husband and eventually his death, his wife realised this feeling. The feeling of not giving another chance to him, not talking to him about the matter, basically not clearing the air.

Regrets filled the void in her life later on.

No matter how much you keep yourself busy, you are gonna think about that incident.

Family is above this and it should be.

No matter what, they will be standing by us. Therefore we must believe in them ……

(I know I haven’t posted in long while so extremely sorry for that ๐Ÿ™„)

Tick-tock

In the midst of silence,

Only sound of the clock is heard,

Tick-tock,

She lay helplessly.

Waiting eagerly for him,

Her eyes fixated at the door

With nothing to do but wait,

Cause to wait was the only option left,

Wondering when he would come 

And she would snuggle with him in bed

She was tired, lonely and scared,

Wondering what was taking him so long

Tick-tock

Her mind, still thinking what wrong she did

Was it her muddy feet ?

Was it the breaking of new china ?

She didn’t know.

She whimpered, howled 

Suddenly afraid in the same house 

of which she knew exactly by heart,

 every smell.

Hoping against hope,

That he would return.

8th March- Women’s day

You can tell a lot about a person by listening to their playlist.

That was just a quote which I like and has nothing to do with the content here.๐Ÿ˜‚

Today is women’s day. Happy women’s day to all the women out there.We celebrate today why women have played such an important role in our lives, how their presence have affected us, we today tell them how much we care and respect for them.

I saw a video on Facebook and it argued why it should be celebrated only today, I agree with them whole heartedly. I mean, not that I am against this but I believe why not give them the respect, the importance, love to which they are entitled everyday? 

Why we talk only today ??

Now you can argue with me about other days as well like father’s day, mother’s day, teacher’s day. I am not averse to celebrating them and am supportive of all of them but I believe one day is simply not enough.

This above thought is not all new. But I was overwhelmed of seeing the women’s day posts all day in my feed today and felt I have to write this. 

I would love to have your views and comments about this thought !!

The one with the barber ๐Ÿ˜‚

“Finding a barber who cuts your hair exactly like you want is no less than finding a soulmate “.      

                                                       -Facebook

I think many of you will find this true ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ™Œ.

Though I am in college right now, my parents still believe in deciding the styling of my hair ( though I appreciate they are always right ๐Ÿ™„).

Once after I had my haircut, he(barber) then asked if I was satisfied with the look. “It’s okay” I said to him. 

I then returned home and naturally my mother asked me to show my new haircut. She was not all happy and satisfied with the look and said it was not what she wanted ! 

She asked me to go again and tell the barber the modifications that she just told me now…

Imagine the situation. 

Now I was having this thought if I am really competent enough to decide a haircut which suits me.

I couldn’t decide but had to go anyway back ๐Ÿ˜‚ .

As I was going back to the shop I thought what reason I should tell him. I just couldn’t think of anything. He asked what was amiss. 

I said my mom didn’t like it and told him the changes which needed to be done. He didn’t say a thing, though I know he judged me after that ๐Ÿ˜‚.

So changing the quote mentioned at the top-

“Finding a barber who cuts your hair exactly like your mother wants, is no less than finding a soulmate “.      

                                                           -Anshul Arora

This may not be true for you all but for me IT IS !!

(P.S. you are always right mumma )

That Day…

Well there’s not a single shred of doubt about how amazing dogs can be …

I don’t have one as a pet, but we have kinda “adopted” a stray. Her name’s as we call it Cucu ( pronounced as  coocoo). She is a happy go lucky dog, moves all day around the colony, running here and there, typical dog stuff.

But at night she usually  comes to our home to eat as she now knows the way to our house(by the way my house is up on the fourth floor I always marvel how she comes to the right door  every time). 

That day I was walking to get some groceries when I suddenly bumped into her. She was so overjoyed I couldn’t tell you. Her tail wagged from nineteen to the dozen. Jumping over me , I couldn’t stop but shake her paw and pat her.

Now, she was walking right beside me but after some time she stopped.

I called her to come but she just stood by like it was a no man’s land after a point (actually every dog has a territory in which he/she can move). I went ahead and it took me around 15 minutes to buy the items.

As I was returning, I saw her, sitting at exactly the same spot I left her.

Now I was overwhelmed. She welcomed like she hasn’t seen me in ages and was walking beside me as usual.

That incident got me into thinking …

She could have done a gazillion things when I left but she chose to stay. Why was she waiting? If I hadn’t come would she still be waiting there for me? 

I don’t know the answer to these questions but my love, adoration and respect for her grew in leaps and bounds from that day. I realised how selfless her love is. 

Could never forget that day . 

What do you think is the answer to the questions ?

Time to consider MNP ?

Well, it’s definitely the time of Jio…
Consider the facts –
It has become a behemoth in providing tele services in just about 6 months.
Its services recently crossed the 100 million mark in just 170 days!!
Meaning 7 customers in just a second *woah*
This company has forced players like Idea to merge with Vodafone to combat this situation…
And Jio sims are still selling like hotcakes in the stores.

Could this be a revolutionary telecommunication company or just “jab tak free hai tab tak chalao” ?ย ย Only time will tell.ย 

What I feel as a consumer, that it’s a big win for us. I have been using it as a secondary sim for more than 4 months now and could tell you it’s good in parts. Daytime internet speed is low and voice quality also not that good. Most of the time I ultimately have to call from my primary sim.
It’s exceptionally good at night though ! Getting speeds upwards 2-3 Mbps (tested on ookla) in no big deal.
Recently it launched its prime membership offer which I feel is going to give a serious fight to the incumbents

Here’s the deal-
People have to register and become a subscriber by the 31st of march 2017 and pay an upfront fee Rs 100 for the year. Then they have to pay
Rs 303 ( I don’t understand the logic of the extra Rs 3) every month for the same services that we are enjoying right now – unlimited calls , 30 GB data (approx Rs 10 for 1 GB cap per day) , various Jio HD channels, Jio mag etc.
Seems good??
Considering my bill is like 300-400 pm this is a much, much better value for the services I currently pay for.
But should I use MNP and use this as my primary sim ? That’s the question.

What would you do ??
