Early December 31st post

2017 is about to say bye bye giving way to the new year. Like every predecessor, this year too had been the roller coaster in many sense. But it's still not over. One more day is left. The last day. The final call. The Judgement Day. Sounds scary. Only it isn't. After the last drop comes another empty bucket of 365 1/4 days to fill with memories mixed with emotions, faces and what not. Let's not indulge into finding examples here.

Let's talk what i did this evening. We had nice dinner outside at a good restaurant. The weather here is chilly so a reasonably good jacket is required. You'd also like to cover your head to save those precious silky locks from receiving harsh repercussions afterwards. i also travel with gloves. My hands get too cold too soon. What else? You can also carry a good scarf, thick socks, good quality lip balm to avoid chapped lips, rich moisturizer, shoes/boots...i guess this much is enough. 

Post dinner, we walked to the sea beach which was barely 100 meter walk behind the restaurant. It was lovely to walk at night, under the clouded sky where the moon was visible but hardly any star. The mild chattering of people, lights keeping the city awake, crashing of sea waves, footprints and should i rather add messages on sand(such as today we found - i love Dimple - carved on the sand over which my son took the liberty and turned the letter D into P. Now you can imagine the funny transformation). But the best thing i like about such place is the silence that the night has to offer. You  might get tired of walking alongside the banks of the sea but you can never be bored out of the peacefulness of it all. You are there but not there. You are with people but you are still alone. You are alone yet you are accompanied by many. 

You travel in many time zones at once.

Sea beach is one of those places where i would love to take my laptop and write my stories. Imagination runs so smoothly, without the hindrance of Writer's block or anything. Things just flow to you as waves to the bank. Sea is, i guess, the only compensation for leaving India. Bangalore is deprived of such nature's beauty. Rest things you can always find everywhere. 

On sea beach, trying to embrace new year

This is the picture my husband took today. We were talking about how 2017 has been for us so far when i asked him to click me with my arms open. i did it in order to feel the welcome of new year. What better way to do it than striking the signature pose of Shahrukh Khan or Rose and Jack? Open arms are the symbol of letting go of fear, uncertainties, lost chances, forgotten faces, sufferings, trauma, would-have-been happinesses and golden opportunities, worst nightmare, losses... They are also a symbol of accepting the new year with fresh enthusiasm and positivism. 

i am collecting snaps of this year to make a video. i'll certainly share it on my pages. It'd be good to see some of those precious memories who made the year worth, who compensated for the losses and filled the cracks when i failed. i hope the video turns out good and inspiring. Making a video is a humongous task and when i come down to make one, it's not an easy task! My expectations with me is too high. So i don't go only extra mile but a couple of extra miles. That's why my projects take longer time, much more energy and more brain cells than i believe i have. But the result has always been awesome! People like my videos. And i like them for liking my efforts so much.

So this new year, do whatever you want. Just make sure you preserve happy memories before 2018 knock you out with happiness and new opportunities.

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…

Aspects of a work out

Finding the right kind of work out is quintessential for your fitness regime. Not everyone has the same cup of tea when it comes to melt calories and congeal the fitness. Therefore, if you are thinking of going for a fitness regime upfront or are already enrolled for one but getting supremely bored, chew on the key points below to get a better digestive form of what work out may work best for you. Some key aspects are given just to remind you how they are in perfect alliance with your chosen work out.

Body type and target areas 
First of all, learn your body type. There are few body types like Apple, Pear, Hour glass etc. Apple means your upper body is wider than your lower; Pear body type is just the opposite means lower is wider than the upper body parts; Hour glass figure is usually considered ideal as it contains the same ratio of chest and hip while teetering a lean waistline.



Then ponder on the areas that really sucks for you. If your waist line resembles a room size, you really…

A remarkable tribute by Amitach Bachchan for Nirbhaya

Today I read a poem written by legendary Amitach Bachchan. He has dedicated this to the Delhi rape victim (on Dec. 16th 2012). When I start reading it, I couldn't stop myself completing it. It is so remarkable and sublime that literally it will make a vortex into your brain with a dot at its end :: Nirbhaya's (Real name :: Jyoti Singh) pleas and pains.

I am gonna share this poem on my blog to make it as an inseparable part so that I won't have to juggle to search it again.




Maa bohot dard sah kar..
