It shook me …utterly …beyond speech.
This was the effect “taarezameenpar” had on me and also on my husband S.
Aamir, proved to be incredible, yet again. Oh my lawsie mercy, how real the movie seemed! I had been quite a fan of Aamirkhan since childhood…..always felt he was versatile, with-in the confines of commercial cinema, but this one, also directed by him shows the world that he is quite a creative genius. The sensitivity with which he dealt the script is amazing and I had been overwhelmed by the young protagonist Darsheel safary ( Ishaan Awasti). You were truly wonderful Mr.Darsheel and my heart went out for you in the movie.
Emotions poured out in gallons… and though S tried to appear sophisticated,hiding the lump in his throat….it didn’t last long…there were times during the movie when I wanted to jump into the scene and help the young boy get back home, to his secure zone. Be his messiah.
It’s an awesome movie and a real masterpiece from Aamir. Kudos Aamir. And I recommend all of you guys to watch it. It gives out a social message very subtly yet strongly and realistically and forces one to speculate even if one doesn’t want to. And the boy is cute, cute, cute, and cute and …cute.
Did I say the boy was CUTE….!
Truly worth watching and well-deserving ! We both are still lurking in its aftereffects.
And I want to give a special mention to its title song/animation. Very sweet and well made. And thoroughly enjoyed by S to the optimum..Did I tell you my man has a soft corner…no not a corner..a large room in his heart for animated movies and cartoons. And did I tell you I find him irresistibly cute when he is busy watching one of those. He is quite a sight then…

looking back….the year that was


Am currently bored, anxious and feeling aimless…for no apparent reason…I have been totally off the writing scene ….Discover the Labyrinth ME!
No, before any conclusions its got nothing to do with my personal or professional life ..what so ever….the former one is rocking ….all the credit goes to S, my lovely husband….who bears my grunt day in and again…without a smirk or complaint….which wonders me …what makes him so affable all the time….and I feel blessed to have him …makes me fall in love all over again and over and over again…I touchwood and pinch myself …yeah I do that…He’s a real darling…a real real darling….It feels as if its our courtship period…….the term husband still hasn’t totally settled in …..
I wanted to write before 2007 ends…. the inherent fear that I might never resume it has been eating me away…have been a writing recluse off late….come 2008 I didn’t want this tag …its embarassing..so I coaxed….forced…traded with myself to write….. Though I admit am writing completely crazy things (obviously not about S , he’s a real sweet heart)……and at a total random…..
The year that was….and what an year that was…dang it..2007….. I went through diametrically opposite emotions in the two halves of the year….the first half which brought in despair…stress…pain…and total chaos…. And the later half which brought in happiness….comfort…. solace and orderliness….life took a full circle for me…and god treated me with S….. for which I can never thank enough for….
Whichever fashion the year treated me….it will always be special for me….all thanks to S…for being the staff I always cling to….and will always cling to….and for being so modest that he never even lets me feel that I cling to him…for always being the shoulder I lean on ; he’s my immense strength …at all times…love you for always being there….and I know that you will always be there….
This is quite a public post…especially considering I am quite a private and shy person when it comes to public display of affection…. but wanted to twirl around this time.…I have never done it before…and one should always try doing everything once in life…so did it…and as 2008 dawns in I did get back to my cherished love, writing…
Though I am not a new year excited thingie … I feel good…2008 is around the corner…I look forward for it with new hopes..for new joys and new beginnings….since I am going to ring it in with S. LIFE IS BLISSFUL.

First Tag ever


I have been reading tags and meme’s quite a lot these days….and wanted to do one. Liked this and since Anu said its open to anyone interested I just got going….

Its total fun….

1. Pick out a scar you have, and explain how you got it?

A scar at the center of my forehead. This happened when I was quite young …probably while I was in my 3rd standard. I had this huge addiction towards cream biscuits and one early morning wanted to eat them. My mom rejected the appeal. I got quite upset and angry and squatted on the floor and there was a folded Iron cot leaning towards the wall right opposite to me. Since I was upset I started pushing the cot (venting out anger) with my feet…finally it ended up on my forehead and I had blood oozing….I was rushed to the doc and was bleeding quite profusely. He gave me four stitches and the scar remains. Phew….that was scary…It still lingers on….

2. What does your phone look like?

Right now it’s Samsung D-500 (apparently it’s my husband’s and he uses my N72). But I guess he’ll stick to the N72 since he justifies it better and I have no fascination for phones. So my phone is the Samsung D-500 and I’m happy with it.

3. What is on the walls of your bedroom?

Nothing interesting…but if I had a choice it will be full of photographs… they dress up any wall beautifully with emotions.

4. What is your current desktop picture?

Sushmita Sen looking gorgeous in a blue saree and solitaires. The real Diva.

5. Do you believe in gay marriage?

As long as people in the relationship are happy, I don’t see anything wrong. It’s a personal choice ( and I hate interference in personal lives) and is always good to see people happy….but I agree that it isn’t natural.

6. What do you want more than anything right now?

To join my husband soon,… visit my mom,…. and also pamper myself with a great hair treatment.

7. What time were you born?

Guess in the morning around 8ish types. Need to check with my mom.

8. Are your parents still together?


9. Last person who made you cry?

S (my best friend turned boyfriend turned husband – out of happiness and also sadness especially when we fight) and basically I can’t take it when I am not his center of attention..gets me very insecure (come on….am a girl…what do you expect)

10. What is your favorite perfume/cologne?

Davidoff’s Coolwater, Coco from Chanel, Musk and many others from Bodyshop.

11. What kind of hair/eye color do you like in the opposite sex?

Black hair and blue eyes.

12. What are you listening to?

My colleagues discussing some technical issues ( ASP etc)

13. Do you get scared of the dark?

Am petrified of darkness but can’t sleep if there is light in the room. Yes,paradoxical.

14. Do you like pain killers?

No,yuck and haven’t met anybody who likes them…but I use them when I have to.

16. If you could eat anything right now, what would it be?

Presently am full …but probably fruit yoghurt is what I am craving for. Yummy

17. Who was the last person you made mad?

Anyone who doesn’t value and respect a person gets me mad…and off late encountered quite many(Corporate). It irritates me……But I get totally totally mad at any kind of domination…..it suffocates me…..Since I completely believe in the adage ” If you love something, set it free…)…..and trust me when you do that you get more in return.tried and tested by ME :)..I believe in live and let live….and accepting any person the way they are…After all love is all about loving them the way they are, not the way you want them to be…

18. Is anyone in love with you?

My husband S….madly and deeply and my mom…unconditionally…

Pick it up guys if it interests you…tag along 🙂

Blogthingies….caught me…..


After a long and never ending hiatus am back ……..It wasn’t that I didn’t have anything to write…I always have something to write………its just that initially there were a lot of issues that needed my complete attention and later it was just work related exhaustion…but will be more regular now….and have loadssssssssssss to pen down………so keep watching this space.
For now….just took these crazy tests..:) ………..fun……..

Still with blogger and The new shahrukh


I haven’t yet moved to wordpress, just taking time or should I say passing my time doing those mundane chores one is expected to do everyday. Been wanting to write, there was time too, but last week were the days when I just didn’t feel motivated enough to do it. I keep writing mentally but somehow was blocked when it came to typing it… actually many a times it so happens that I suddenly wake up during nights and immediately write something (mentally though ). There is so much that’s written in my mind already that I feel I really have to type it soon and unwind. And need to make space for future writings too. So I guess the move to word press is going to take a while… And I haven’t yet figured out how to move my existing posts to wordpress….
Other than that its been quite an eventful week…till now.. Major changes at office, personal life too is going fine….though turbulent its moving slowly in the preferred direction.. And the count down has actually begun. Hmmm.I am eagerly looking forward for the weekend. Off late weekends were emotionally hectic, but this week, the plan is to watch a movie, eat out, basically just relax, to just be yourself and let hair down. Should see how far it will be fruitful.
I had just watched the promos of “ Chak De” . It seemed interesting, especially for a shahrukh movie. After a long time I felt he actually is looking like a man. Ok, all those shahrukh fans , sorry, I don’t hold any grudges against him, but that’s my opinion. Since a long time he looked terribly stupid in all those senseless chopra/johar glossies. He was the best in DDLJ, agree but too many clones followed. Enough of LOVE shahrukh, its time to move on. And we are happy to see that. Personally I feel he was hugely miscast in many of them. Agreed that he looks romantic but too much is also no good. He can do better roles now, given his amazing screen presence and charisma. After all variety is the spice of life…..
