Just the other day I went to see an exhibition of Craft council in Valluvar kottam and saw some beautiful things crafted by hands. I felt bad that I do shop so many things abroad whereas we are getting such good things and at a fraction of price here only, the only problem is that  these can be found in exhibitions only..wish they make a permanent place for them like shilparamam in Hyderabad.

Today I see that youngsters are getting too sensitive and touchy about everything others say, whereas I( feel that it is the way we take it that matters, there are so many questions which are used only as small talk, and may not have that serious intonation like asking...
when are you having kids? doesnt mean that others intend to run your family decisions or anything..just starting a conversation....
When are are you going to complete the family?....its a universal truth that daughter and son both complete the family, but if one doesnt feel the same,no problem..its your life  and same way …

Credit living

American way of living is failing slowly slowly and here we are picking their habits , so thats going to be our future 20 years onward.what i found ridiculous over there was.....

Banks giving mortgage for 30 years, 40 years where payment years go beyond retirement.And giving loans to people beyond their capacity. In this area  I had an experience where I learned alot, Once I used to run a departmental store and there were many customers who will get tempted to buy the things and request me to give them on instalment and I being naive thought no harm in this and even felt happy that I am making sales, but..two cases I can point out where it was a clear mistake...
Giving a domestic maid earning 300/ month a credit of 1000/ is always wrong, she is going to be a defaulter and she did.
To a young girl working in a five star hotel,once I started giving, she had no end to her shopping of cosmetics and ultimately vanished without payment.
Business cant be done without some strong basic rules and …


Yesterday i saw Shaagird, actually I have a certain respect for director..Tigmanshu Dhulia, so as soon as I heard about this movie, it was on my to see list, and he didnt disappoint me...The movie is about a police officer Nana Patekar in Crime branch. For a change he is not an honest officer,but a normal one..corrupt though efficient one and works in cahoots with politician.Jakir Hussain.A New boy..Mohit Ahlawat joins under him.....The treatment of every character is just perfect and they look natural and impressive except  Mohit..he spoils the tempo by his wooden face and unimpressive personality.Its a very tightly edited movie, fast one, with some twists all the time.Rimi Sen as  journalist is also fits in.I liked the movie very much and would say that its worth a watch..the way police works and how money corrupts everybody,but corruption and dishonesty never pays in the end result.This is the first movie where hero..if you can call Mohit that,has been a loser in life till he got a…

75Th year celebration

yesterday we had a 75th year celebration of a senior person and it was such an emotional experience as his son planned everything sitting in US and came here suddenly and gave him a surprise, now coming from abroad is not such a big thing for wealthy families, but just the thought that someone took so much of interest in something to make his father happy..that was special.
And yesterday in the same hotel.Chennai super kings and Mumbai Indians were also staying:), though i am not fond of cricket, but as for far as getting a chance to see any celebrity is concerned, i am no different...but alas, could see their bags only:).
One4 thing I have seen about myself that i am very particular about treating everybody well and with respect, but if someone misbehaves with me inspite of that, my anger knows no boundaries, I get furious and if I could I would kick that person i did see
I had a maid who is a widow and quite poor, so she had a very special place in my heart and I u…

Emotional connect

A was brought up with lots of love and care.And her parents instilled discipline and good values too and made her understand the difference between right and wrong. They themselves worked really hard to give good upbringing to their children.And she was an intelligent and hardworking all that combined brought her lot of praise , that became her motivation also to do better in life.And by god's grace she got a good education and settled well in far.everything as normally happens.
Now she can remember only what her parents didnt do for her,What more they could do or should have done, she has forgotten all that they did,and all the sacrifices they made, she gives no credit to her parents for anything in her life, she is today what she is because of herself only. she always tries to find fault in her parents today and yesterday.She does everything for her parents what a good child should do, but that EMOTIONAL CONNECT is not there, and her parents get not much sati…

Degrading the people

One thing irritates me a lot that most of the people take dig at some unprivileged people or the people who are not influential.
like in Bollywood, everybody can take the name of Mallika Sherawat for wearing less clothes, but is she the only one? all our top heroines have done all sort of roles and wore less, but now they have reached a position, so they are beyond reach....Even today all of them be it Kareena, Bipasha, Deepika, they all wear everything as and when they want, but nobody dares to point a finger at them.

Karan Johar has reduced his  respect a lot by taking such names like Mallika , Rakhee sawant on his show and on Simi's also. I think that one doesnt become big by exploiting the underprivileged, rather in respecting one and all and saying the truth. If you have courage then take the name of bigwigs also, or keep quiet.

I am not a fan of Mallika or Rakhee.No... but I dont like picking on the people who are rising from the scratch, come from a different background(rea…

Must watch video:)

this is so real


Your net worth to the world is usually determined by what remains after your bad habits are subtracted from good ones.
Eat not to dullness,drink not to elevation.

Let all your things have places,let each part of your business have time.
Resolve to perform what you ought;perform without fail what you resolve.
Waste nothing.
Loose no time.
Use no hurtful deceit;think innocently and justly and if you speak speak accordingly.

This is one of the theme park I was thinking of going for long, as my hubby keeps going to that side and he always wanted to go there and this was the first outing he planned:).rest of the time its me who keeps planning.
It is located on Bangalore route and took us around one hour to reach there.It is a huge place full of favourite and beautiful place even to stroll around. Entry fee is Rs 350/adult and 50/ for camera. All rides inside are included in entree fee.One is given the map of park with the tickets.
There are many rides, some for kids only and some for family. There was a free fall,and i was too scared to go there.first one I tried Alpen Blitz.sort of roller coaster..good one, speed is not too much, but tilting is, and they keep you stationery for some seconds in that position to get the thrill..that was a little straining for me.Then we had cable is a beautiful one for 30 minutes.Everywhere there are food stalls and at reasonable was good,I to…


I was given this book by Mr. Raman, his choice in books is very eclectic and good too.he only introduced me to Frozen thoughts too.This book has some 50 lessons about success.what and how?.I am chronicling some thoughts expressed by the writer for my future reference, if you are interested you may read them....

.The most thoughtful among us conclude at last that personal success must exist inside it if it is to exist at all.The first constant factor is purpose. Aimlessness is the worst enemy of success.In growing up each of us must learn sooner or later that everyday is not Christmas and so every effort cant be crowned in glory.Feeling sorry for yourself and your present condition,is not only a waste of energy but the worst habit you could possibly have.Think of all we have to be grateful for and thank god for all our boons and bounties.Stop worrying and start living.There are seeds of destruction in all of us that will bear only unhappiness if allowed to grow.The practice of blaming o…

Don't Mess with Mom

Have some fun:)

My son came home from school one day,
with a smirk upon his face.
He'd decided he was smart enough,
to put me in my place.

"Guess what I learned in Civics Two,
that's taught by Mr. Wright?
It's all about the laws today,
The "Children's Bill of Rights."

It says I need not clean my room,
don't have to cut my hair.
No one can tell me what to think,
or speak, or what to wear.

I have freedom from religion,
and regardless what you say,
I don't have to bow my head,
and I sure don't have to pray.

I can wear earrings if I want,
and pierce my tongue & nose.
I can read & watch just what I like,
and get tattoos from head to toes.

And if you ever spank me,
I'll charge you with the crime.
I'll back up all my charges,
with the marks on my behind.

Don't you ever touch me,
my body's only for my use,
not for your hugs and kisses,
that's just more child abuse.

Don't preach about your morals,
like your mama did to you.
That's nothing more th…


Today Shraadh are starting and someone was discussing it that why we do so much for our inlaws who may not have done even anything for us, but why are the girls not allowed to do any after death tradition for their own parents.who must have done so much for them. My take on that is...
Every system has certain rules and if they are followed society works well as that is true for everything in life.Earlier parents never taught their daughters to disregard their in laws and look after their own parents.Rather they were happier if their daughters got established themselves in their sasuraal and took their responsibilities seriously.And after marriage they were supposed to belong to their inlaws and make their family there only..that was their own house, not parents home.
And for anything in life its not instant or accurate give and take, we take from some and we give to some and the balance comes, It cant be to the same person or same thing..our parents loves us unconditionally and we lov…

service providers in India

Now in India we get everything which was not earlier available but after sales service is pathetic and its not given much importance whereas to me it is one of the most important criteria while buying things.

I am using and broad band connection both and I face many problems like..
they automatically subscribe to caller tunes or other some such service and deduct the money, now I am harassed like anything to mail them, call them and again and again to stop it and refund the amount,they refund first day in the morning and restart same day in the evening.......and one has to call them again and again and its such a wastage of time and money too, as for the last part of call they charge...
Then they deduct at the wrong rates for STD and then I keep quiet,as I dont find the strength to complain all the time..why such big companies resort to such service or I would call it cheating, as there are many customers who cant complain all the time,and so bear the cost of such fril…

Bomb blasts

Again Bomb blast in New Delhi.and we hear the same statement from politicians, and their visits and they will pay some money to dead and wounded and it goes on......what purpose it solves for terrorists to harm common people..see they are not important in India.
Why they keep the terrorist alive to give them a bargaining point? or to have some more casualties and strife?
Its time public rose against politicians and demand that all criminals be punished and done so delayed justice is not a justice..No mercy petitions be considered for people who have committed a crime against state or individuals....crime is a crime and specially the ones premeditated, and no pardon for that.
Amar Singh in jail..where is his bade bhaiya now?

YAmla Pagla Deewana

this weekend I saw two movies and both were special in their own way.Let me tell you about them.
PYAR KA PANCHNAMMA...when i started watching this one, I thought they should have taken some known faces, but then the the characters grew on me. This is the story of three friends..Rajat, Nishant and Vikrant..all young , working and always thinking that if they had a girl friend, their life would be a bliss, and lo..First Rajat gets one and he says to others...however bad the day may be but when in the evening she hugs me everything becomes fine:) and I am so happy...etc etc, Then Nishant gets a friend who has a boy friend but wants to have a best friend also.modern girls idea of having everything. And Vikrant gets friendly with a girl who has just broken up a 5 year old relationship and still in the process and then she is the type who goes to party with one boy and comes back with another..and now the real life starts....and they see the ugly side of the girls exploit the boys…
