Inhuman Cops :(

Ten policemen have been convicted by a court in Delhi for killing two innocent businessmen in the ten-year-old sensational Connaught Place shootout case. Read the full piece of news here.The widow of the victim explained , as to how one usual day turned out to be a nightmare for her life.

I do not know the inside out of this story ,except what I read and saw onTV , but then killing innocent people for the sake of promotions is beyond my imagination. What can promotion mean ...ohh yes..may be it meant more black money for some.

I know there is a lot of debate about encounters and fake encounters , but what about this. Killing someone , planting pistols in their car and expecting promotions ..and they even did not take care of basics like firing some shots from the planted pistol. May be they were trying to copy some Ram Gopal Varma movie , without applying their own brains.Heights of inhumanity and insensitivity ..:(

Sweet Unexpected Prizes

Last week was a Health week in our company. As part of that there was an online health quiz. So , I don't think I am a health concious person , but I just attemped for time pass. To my surprise , I was one among the winner. But wait what, there were sixteen other winners too..heheh..they declared everyone who passed in first division as winners and I just made it. But still it was a sweet surprise and also made me feel happy that I am in top 17 among the 300 who attempted the quiz , when we consider the knowledge about health ...well, not about if we apply that knowledge :P

And the prize thats also not something to feel great about ..a water bottle that's used by gymmers and joggers with a logo and a caption "Stay Fit" ..but then a prize is a prize ..right ?

TV Nostalgia

NM’s post about a TV serial, brought back some fond memories, mostly of Doordarshan. There were certain shows which still stand unforgettable even today.

Kashish” : Sudesh Beri and Malvika Tiwari played the lead roles. It had just 6 episodes but you feel so connected as if you know them from ages. A director falling in love with his heroine, so well acted and directed. The title track was great, and portrayed the emotions well ..."Na Jane Kyo , ek Kashish si hai ...Dil haule se dastak deta hai ..." That was my favourite TV serial ever. You may blame it to my age then ;-) though I still cannot resist love stories :-P

Fauji” : Shahrukh khan got introduced and became the talk of the school :)

Circus” : Who can forget that. Renuka Shahney , Shahrukh Khan and so many others became a part of our lives then.

Nukad” : Again Renuka Shahney and who can forget Khopari ...the drunkard.

Dard” : Never watched the serial but loved the title track .."Dil ka ek chehra dikhayi dega, Dard bola toh sunai dega ..." wonderfully sung by Jagjit Singh.

Mrugnayani” : Ohh I became a fan of Pallavi Joshi since then , she looked beautiful.

Swabhimaan” : One of its kind. First fancy serial on DD. Time was odd and so I never watched it , but I remember how the Rishab (Rohit Roy) of the serial made my friends crazy.

There have been certain small screen heros and heroines who have been my favourites for no obvious reasons :

Pallavi Joshi – “Mrugnayani” fame
Kitu Gidwani – “Swabhimaan” and “Shaktimaan” is all I can remember
Renuka Shahney - Circus, “Nukad”, “Kora Kagaj” and the movie "Hum aake Hain Kaun"
Gracy Singh – “Laagaan” fame ..was first seen in TV serial “Amanat
Malvika Tiwari - Probably due to “Kashish” :P
Off recent Prachi Desai – “Kasam se”..Daily soap on Zee

Guys ...

Sudesh Beri - Again for “Kashish
Maamik - Big brother from "Jo jeeta wohi Sikandar" and "Kya Kehna" was earlier a TV actor.
Ashutosh Gowarikar - When he had hair :P Was seen in CID
Ronit Roy - Yes Yes ...Mr Bajaj of "Kausauti.." fame.

There are a lot more ..cannot recall all ..What do you say ?

Food Food Food ...

I am a hardcore name any dish..ofcourse salads and soups are not included ..and what you get to hear from me ..."Wow..thats my favourite","Aree waah..." and similiar sorts of statements..:-P My husbands says , "Is there anything , thats not your favourite , especially among the sweets."..*sob*

Tell me , if your kids would react like that to foods , how would you react ? You sure will be the happiest Momma on earth. And even my Mom was. Whenever I used to get home from hostel, I would have something ready especially for me. My brother would tease me , that this "Kheer" or "Rajma" were prepared 2 days back and since no one liked it , we kept that for you. And you think I would give an ear to him ...well thats not me...I would happily have whatever it is :-)

In college , I would cover my books with mother diary advertisements ..those tempting ice cream...*slurp*...and the explanation was I feel good to see them when I I get bored of reading. Before I had a kid , my wall papers would either have a landscape or a tempting ice cream.

But now things are not same. I was always a chubby little girl , but then no one wants a chubby big Mom or a Chubby (*fat*) big Wife. All that I ate then and all that I eat now , is showing everywhere. And I know well , that except for others , I need to reduce it for my own self too.

My father , my husband and all those who care for me , would tell me every alternate week (sometimes every week too) and all that it does is , it irritates me , coz I know what they have been telling and everything around me reminds me of that , especially my wardrobe :(

And what do I do about it..barely anything. Yes I do try to control. Every afternoon , I would make resolutions like "to not to have sweets from tomorrow." , "to have just one bite" , "to quit rice" etc etc. I may succeed for a day or two but then what do I do with my taste buds ..*sigh* ..why the hell can I be not determined.

So , since yesterday I have decided to quit sugar in milk..lets see for how long.

Whats My Colour ..

So how was the Birth Day ?

So how did the Day go ? Well , quite an eventful day. Aryan planned to wish me before he sleeps , and so he was awake till 12.30 am. Both father and son wished me before they slept. Aryan was colic in the wee hours and so I could not have a good sleep.

There was a training planned in office and so I had to be there by 9.00 am. But the maid did not turn up. So the day started with cleaning of utensils. We had some guests for dinner last night , so you can guess how it was. Admist of washing utensils , I attended the phone calls from friends and family. The made tuned up suddenly when I was half way through , but I was already late for the cab. Anupam was nice enough to drop me to office. Meanwhile I received a big bouque of red roses from my darling husband. I was not expecting this at all and hence delightfully surprised.

When I reached office , I was told that the training has been cancelled :( It was disappointing since I planned my week based on this. In office by lunch everyone in the team could recall one after the another that it was my Birthday and wished me. In the evening my Boss ordered for a BIG cake and we all enjoyed and I took loads of it home too.

On the way back , I visited temple with Anupam. We planned for a dinner out, but when we reached home , Aryan was sleeping. So we waited and waited till he woke up. Finally we left for dinner at 9.00 pm. Got a place till 9.30 pm. My in laws were not too happy with the choice of restaurant and that again was a mood depressor but food was great and it refreshed us all. Aryan enjoyed the dinner , esp the Panneer Tikka , Naan and Tandoori roti :) We were back home by 11.00 pm.

So ..that was it, a lovely but eventful day with loads of ups and downs :)

Thank You!

There is something I never did , though I always wanted to do this.

I wanted to say .."THANK YOU" to Mummy and Papa

...for everything they did since I was born.

...for being on my side in the life's tide.

...for forgiving me at least a 100 times.

...for loving me always like they do.

This is no attempt to be poetic ..All I want to say is Thanks to the best Mummy and Papa in the world. I love you for everthing and apart from everything.I know you don't read my blog and thats probably why I am writing this here ....

All In A Name

Passed on as a tag by WIAN ..I thought what can be a better day for this post of confessions. The tag for one characteristics of yours for each letter of your middle name.
Here are the rules of the tag :

Rule 1. The rules must be mentioned in the beginning of the tag.
Rule 2 You must list one fact that is somehow relevant to your life for each letter of your middle name. If you don’t have a middle name, use the middle name you would have liked to have had.
Rule 3. At the end of your blog post, you need to choose one person for each letter of your middle name to tag. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.

Now that I don't have a middle name (we usually dont have esp for girls) , so let me do it for the name I blog with.

S - Simply Smiling - I smile a lot and good part is I have got my maximum compliments for my smile. Another thing is Smile is one of the first things that draws me to any person. So if you want to be my friend and you have a good smile , half the battle won.

W - Wishful Thinker - Yep , I am a day dreamer and I guess my blog as ascertained this a few times. I dream of future with minute details. Sometimes I dream of real future events and other times , they might be just wishful events :D

A - Affectionate - Those who know me will have no doubt about it. I am generally an affectionate person. I love to love and to be loved ..well I guess everyone is like that , but still ..this post is only about me :D. I remember the Birthdays of even my school friends. I get attached to people , way to easily. I generally don't dislike people. I genuinely believe in unconditional love.

T - Tolerant - Well, my gynaecologist endorsed this :D ..hehehhe...and apart from physical I do believe that I am a strong person mentally.

I - Intutive - As you all know I am ..have already done a few posts on this I refrain myself from saying more here.

DONE....Did I say anything you did not know ...heheheh...sorry ..but could not think of better adjectives ;-)

Now I tag , S for Squiggles, W for Winkey Ways , A for Artnavy, T for tiny-tidbits and I for ItchingToWrite
