http://myamusingmind.wordpress.com/

Why ...the reason is the same ...I wanted to write certain things for my ownself ...and so I want to keep them password protected and blogger doesnot allow that ..hence ..

Aryan blog remains where it was.

I hope and I wish to see all of you there ..soon :)

Please explain..

Why am I expected to waive off any money less than Rs 10 , to auto drivers , street vendors and service providers ? Is it wrong on my part to wait or ask for my money ? Does that mean I am money minded ? Does that mean I am a miser ? Does that mean I am not BIG at heart ? Is it the only and the right way to show my generousity ? Why am looked with a strange hatred when I do so ? Please explain..

Just to say Hii!!

Ladies and gentlemen , Thanks for checking on me , yes I am still in this space. Life has been super duper busy at work. Plus with in laws at home , I am not able to give time to the internet even at home.


But its been good so far. Inspite of being busy , I am enjoying , both at work and at home. Aryan is so so so happy these days. Good that I listened to all your advice and allowed him to have a blast for a month. But his happiness will not last for long now.


My in laws are going back tomorrow and I get shivers thinking about the fact that I will have to leave hom to day care from Thursday. Its worse than when I left him to day care for the first time. That time he was small and did not understand much. But this time after a month of fun , with different set of grand parents , I am not sure how he will react to day care. He has been missing my parents since they left inspite of being with Anupam's parents and enjoying with them. Now he will miss all of them like hell :(


Anyways , Lets take life as it comes ! As of now I am happy to see a smiling and excited baby all the time !


I hope to blog a little more often in the near future , and I hope to read all of you more often as well and I hope I will not leave your page before commenting , as I do these days , but no promises till work gets better !
