The summer season has started in Bangalore now. It is hot but not as scorching as it is in North India; North India where breathes my native place. In North India, summer is yet to arrive and when it arrives, it comes with a bang leaving everyone heavily perspiring even if they are sitting under the fan (running fan of course). It becomes hard to find the difference between day and night when it comes to feel the heat.

But in Bangalore, the summer season has already started brewing vicious spells. In day time when one steps out, sun rays appear like darts piercing deep within your skin causing enormous pangs of heat making you escape from its effect asap. I don't like summers. I hate it, dislike it and going out under heat dispersing sun is obviously out of the question.

But since few days, summer has surprisingly taken a U-turn and has been showering soft feathers on the people here. Weather has become pleasant and that too during the day time! It lures you to go out and chill with the gang of your friends. I also tempt to go out and in this stride, I do miss my friend (Sadly she lives in North India...the opposite direction).

It's not like I can't go alone. I had and I can but I love to have some good pleasing company with me that makes going out more fun. My husband has to go to his office. Therefore, he can't avail the privilege to come with me on weekdays. But I love going out with him. Whenever he gets lucky enough to strike a holiday during the weekdays, we try to make most of it. We go out many a times. When he is with me, I feel like flying and the energy required for the wings to fly floats straight from him to me like a smooth gentle flowing river. It takes me to Cloud 9 because he lets me be what I am. His vibrant smiles and a gentleman's attitude bowls me over every time.

His on-the-spot PJs make my eyes roll all the time and I burst out in laughing and sometimes, in disgust. But I laugh in both the cases. I often tell him to write a book of his own PJs so that if anyone wants to commit suicide in easier way, s/he can read your book. He guffaw at my saying. I accompany him. But in every moment, I love and miss him and I know the same happens on the other side too :)

So when he is not around and the weather is pleasant, I prefer to stay at home mostly doing my writing stuff, enjoying The Vampire Diaries episodes over and over again (Yes! I do watch them repeatedly), sometimes enjoying the idiot box (that means TV), falling for poetry (butterfly trying to break its cocoon), reading a good novel, chit-chats and what not. There are lot of things to do for me and I happily do them.

And how come one can not drool over a cup of hot tea if it is Bangalore's evening? I consider it a forbidden sin committed in the broad daylight. Bangalore evenings are always like an impeccable seductive dancer whose vistas you enjoy and live it's every vivid moment adding the magical flavor to the tea. Don't know about the rest of the world but I, usually, can not dare to miss a chance of taking sips from my favorite mugs (one mug at a time dear).

Why do we need occasions like Mother's Day?

Firstly, Happy Mother's Day to all the moms in this world. Today is a special day for mothers and after wishing my own, I feel great. Mummy did not know today is her day and she was simply surprised when I wished her. She wished me back and then we chatted for a little more while before we hung up.

But before calling her, something else had happened. I was calling her but she was busy somewhere for incessant 20 minutes talking to someone else. Finally I called my father and informed about it's Mother's Day today. He chuckled and wished me. Then he asked,

"Who has made days like Mother's day, Father's day etc.? Do we really need such occasions?"

I laughed. Comments similar to this often flow my way nonetheless I replied to him.

"No. Actually we really don't need such days but if dedicating one day especially to our loved ones, we can shower some extra pounds of love, affection, care and gifts, there is no harm in celebrating them. For the rest of th…

Happy Diwali!!!

Wish you all a very happy, prosperous and full of laughter diwali (I guess I am the first one to wish you all :) ).

It's 12.30 AM and I am awake doing some interesting chit chat with my beloved husband. He is such a great talker and an even better listener (later one goes in my favor of course ;) ). We are exchanging diwali wishes with our parents. I am really happy today as I'd be making a number of really delicious food items (you all are invited too), making two rangolis afterwards and then enjoying the evening with our friends along with firing crackers. I know I know crackers are unfriendly for our environment. Therefore, we all would be doing it in a limit :). My husband is such a great supporter. He loves doing chores with me which makes everything so special and quick of course. I find it sweet. I also enjoy his company pretty much. Yayyy!! We are going to squeeze the maximum joy out of our favorite festival....again.
And I had promised, I am sharing the two d…

25 ways to save water

My father has asked me to help him out in writing an article on "How to save water? or simply put, "Water Conservation". While working on it, I thought this article is worth sharing on my blog as water conservation has become one of the hottest topic world wide in last few decades. Importance of water now-a-days is well known by everyone. We need water from the first hour of our waking life till the last one. Retaining the water will also help in cutting down on other global crises like global warming and droughts.

I searched profusely and the useful tips I have found are hanging below. Feel free to read them and help our mother planet to attain its water abundance.

Simple things just for reminder. Close tap the taps while brushing or washing vegetables etc.; while filling a bucket with water, make sure you close the tap on time. Do not overfill the bucket; teach children how to save water. Stick stickers to several places (as shown above) that shows how to save water. …
