Let It Snow.

No. I am not expecting Christmas nor urging you to do the same. It'd be a very odd time to do so. Instead, Let It Snow is the title of the book I finished almost...three weeks back, I guess. Even though I am more inclined towards fully stretched novels, this short collection of three stories did catch my attention.


Three authors have complied three stories round and round Christmas and its magic with the clear intention to make you fall in love. Among the three, my favorite happened to be The Jubilee Express by Maureen Johnson (even though my favorite John Green too has a story in it). I loved it! John and Lauren too have weaved magical stories with such flawless knitting that you'd not find a missing or an extra knot anywhere. All in all, Let It Snow is the book to pick if you want to snuggle in warmth and dip the head into something magical.

So the story I loved the most, The Jubilee Express, is not about trains (I just saw you sighing with relief) as the name reflects. In fact, Jubilee is a girl going to meet her parents who, unexpectedly, got in the jail but then she gets stuck in the train which gets further stuck in a really heavy snow storm. She had thought of spending Christmas with Noah but destiny always has some other plans to crush ours but only the train gets stuck. Story moves on and from there pops several characters, interesting ones including Stuart but I find Jubilee the loveliest. Because she is smart and thinks her name i.s. Jubilee splits more as a party theme or can be some stripper. So she does not quite like her name which is funny. And natural. Many of us do not like the name we get inscribed during our births but what to do? I will tell you. Do exactly what Jubilee does in The Jubilee Express. Come to terms with it. Anyway, her train gets stuck and the rest of the story unfolds like a magician coming to the end of her magic but only to stay mesmerized and wanting for more. And you will surely get once you move on. Anyway, Maureen has a great fiction to deliver here.

Books that I read these days are only on Kindle and boy, do I love the device! I do! I totally and completely do. Reading on Kindle is very easy and I am only praising it so much because I have got it this year only. It'll take some time for the two hearts in my eyes to settle down and vanish. I am so much in love with my Kindle.

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 yes...as 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…
