Love, betrayal and glitterati.

Two days ago when my husband broke the news of Pratyusha Banerjee's suicide to me, my jaw was dropped open and eyes went wide. Pratyusha's beautiful charming face circled my head in an instant and I failed to figure out what possibly could have gone wrong with such a wonderful actress? It was a terrible news and when my husband told the reason behind, I was again surprised.

I really adored her smile.

Pratyusha died because of an alleged fight with her boy friend. Today she was there for quite sometime in news. People revealed she was secretly married and was living with the guy (his name is may be Rahul). Her best friend revealed that he used to beat her black and blue in drunken state. Pratyusha would call her friend and request her save from such atrocity for several times.

A few months ago, another actress Jiah Khan's suicide case also landed as a shocker. She got pregnant and her alleged boy friend practically did the abortion on his own to confine the news within four walls and afterwards, Jiah slipped into depression leaving no signs of excitement for living life.

 The Q. that has been raiding my head  is - Why these celebrities tolerate all this non-sense? On what grounds they let their raging boy friends/husbands take over their lives and make it equal to nothing but a shit?

I agree celebrities are as human as we are but still...these are the ones we, the fans, look at for inspiration, for hard work, for the ways they handle the work-life balance. Every time we see them posing for the cameras with glittering smiles, it leads us to believe that the health and wealth, both are being poured into their pockets generously but often the case is pretty different (remember when Deepika revealed about her depression?). But all said and done, somehow I wish Pratyusha had spoken about her issues in public. If she had, who knows she could have been alive today! I am saying because I liked her a lot. The way she brought Anandi alive on screen, it will take quite a long time to forget her stellar performance.

Look how pretty she is! Sorry! Was.

But whatever I say, you say or others say, we can still pick a lesson from them - That let's stop tolerating the wrong-doings and misconducts regardless of whoever it is performing. Perhaps that's one more way we can chose to be a celebrity within our ordinary walls of life.

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…

How to deal with a nagging neighbour

If you have a nagging fighting-maniac neighbor next door then you can easily relate to my pain and if this neighbor happens to have a dog barking day in and day out, you can feel the loads of irritation coming my way any time and every time.

Neighbors...they are always imagined as a friendly next door people who not only share their space with you but also comes at rescue when you need them. Good neighbors become your another family out of your own. Having been blessed with a good friendly neighborhood is a bliss; something that we always wish for when we move somewhere.

But...our wish comes crashing when we encounter a troublesome recalcitrant people living next door. Before you realize what wrong you have done to them, they will come rushing only to drag you into a fight. The fight majorly consists of verbal accuses and high pitched voice insults. Whether you are innocent or merely a witness to someone else's fight, such neighbors always drag the rest of the word with them, inc…
