Another Tag

Amrita gave me the Honest Scrap award for the "openness that shines through my pages". and this is one award, where I atleast feel a little bit worthy of:)

Now the tough part is this award comes with a tag in which one has to mention 10 facts which others may or may not know. But since I am getting an award for openness, that means all my friends must be knowing everything about me, as it is, I am not shy in writing about me, still let us see what i can come up with....

1.When i started blogging, I told everyone in my family about it and now that is one part I am thinking..whether it has done good or bad...may be both..but sometimes it stifles me..other's rules and regulations and expectations.

2.If I meet a needy person, I wouldnt hesitate to shell out a hundred, but if an autowalla demands to keep the change even( a few ruppess) I feel irritated:)

3.I never feel the strain of work if Imy favourite songs are playing in the background.

4.I am a die hard bollywood addict, but…


In the last post and earlier also thru comments I feel that many children want to live with parents and many want to live nearby so that they can have the privacy also and they can look after the parents also..Here I would like to share with all the experiences of my two friends.

Both have four brothers all married and all four of them live together in a big house with parents.One in Delhi and one in Pune. i am going to tell you how they mange so beautifully...the biggest point of strife is here in the beginning of every month all four brother contribute the same amount to the family kitty..( irrespective of whether their wife is earning or housewife)..this money is given to parents..they run the house with the servant.....this kitty is meant for rent,electricity, servant,food etc only...personal expenses are their it parties, eating out, clothes or children's education.

Now the second part is work..and here also they have good distribution..they have servant fo…


Yesterday my husband was talking to my son and then he told me that this time when my son got his BP checked up, it was on the borderline, and I just felt as if my heart is sinking, cant explain the feeling even and I wished and prayed to god that both my children should remain healthy and shouldnt catch any of these lifestyle diseases atleast till 50..though its fool hardy to even think like that..but thats the way my mind works, but a realisation bigger than this dawned on my mother must be suffering watching his children having all these health problems. It is truly said that we dont really feel anything till we ourselves face it.

If somebody hurts me, my mom cries for hours together the same way when she herself is hurt, whenever I fall sick she is so much worried and we keep telling her to take it easy and not be so tense all the time, but I realise now how it feels.My mother has taken so much of trash from all of us siblings and still she loves us so i felt r…



This weekend we went to Taj Fisherman's cove for a overnight stay.What a beautiful place it is!..we had a villa on the sea side, with a beautiful scenery..tall coconut trees swaying.hammock and rocking chairs with lots of greenery and many restaurants.And Taj's hospitality is something to be seen..they have so many people all around for safety and help and they assist you in everything with a smile.
Their north Indian vegetarian food was delicious and they had a sea side see food restaurant..a delight for non vegetarians, but for me the smell emanating was a put off.and there was AN UPPER DECK for Mediterraneancusine

We tried the spas wasOk..I dont think in luxurious place we can think of anything which is value for money, and me being a VFM p…


I read in my friend's post about attention..that in life some people get lot of attention..and I thought of reasons.... may be because they are privileged in some more wanted, more accomplished or got god's bounty in plenty..whatever the reason, but they are the centre of attraction, but some people go through life without getting any lime light, so what difference does it bring into their personality.

Most of the time I have seen that those who get lot of attention become self seekers and their lives are always centred around themselves..what they like, what they dont, what is good what is not..according to them only...They normally have some blinkers on all the time and see the world and things the way they want to see...but they are mostly successful in their professions as they have that aggressiveness about them which is so necessary to get ahead and helps them in reaching their goals.

Whereas those who dont get that extra attention, are most of the time not very…


RANN...I saw many other movies too, but for this i was waiting a lot and so wanted to give you my point of view...This is a tightly scripted movie and fast edited, so one never gets bored or has much time to think and most of the actors are of good caliber so one enjoys them but rest is many things are so cliche....and one has seen all that many times.what i didn't like is...

A person like Amitabhbacchan who is so revered that his words are like law and his son doesnt take much time in convincing him in a fraud.

Why in all movies the show that a principled person is never liked by his son or family? why?

Why all the children of a principled person are so money driven?

Jai fails because his own editor is cheating..passing his ideas to rival channel, but he never doesnt expect top people to behave like that, it was more natural in Corporate, where it comes out in the there are so many detective firms and was most jarring thing to watch..…

My name is not Khan, I am Mr Kaul

My name is not Khan, I am Mr KaulTarun Vijay, 22 December 2009, 08:55 AM ISTI am not Khan. My name bears a different set of four letters: K A U L. Kaul. As those who know Indian names would understand I happened to be born in a family which was called Hindu by others. Hence, we were sure, we would never get a friend like KJ to make a movie on our humiliations, and the contemptuous and forced exile from our homeland. It's not fashionable. It's fashionable to get a Khan as a friend and portray his agony and pains and sufferings when he is asked by a US private to take off his shoes and show his socks. Natural and quite justifiable that Khan must feel insulted and enraged. Enough Masala to make a movie.But unfortunately I am a Kaul. I am not a Khan.Hence when my sisters and mothers were raped and killed, when six-year-old Seema was witness to the brutal slaughterin…
