Countdown Begins...

Ten more days of single(dom). Here is what is not fun. The weather is so hot that I have almost stopped short of thinking what to do and how to celebrate. I am also worried sick about how my family will cope with this heat which will take centrestage to all the celebrations as the weatherman says expect more hotter weeks. I hope the rain Gods have some mercy, please, please, please!

I get teased about choosing hot June as the month for a wedding. How do I explain that when the time comes, there is no looking it is autumn, spring, summmer or winter? It just happens. And poor Lozza, he is destined to come to India only during the summers. When all this is over, I just hope the hot wedding will make 'cool' memories.

But it's also the time of my life where I will remember having more than one dilemma and many, many, questions from all and sundry. The dilemma is apparel related = blue, red or pink. A favourite question from many: so who all are coming from the groom's side? I am still not able to figure out the strength of this question. Maybe it's just a general question but I am not able to shrug it off as I want to know why people are interested in this. Maybe someone needs to remind me that I over reacting!

Meanwhile, I need to be slim and stop eating like a pig. But it's hot and I all want is a chilled glass of Carlsburg beer. And my nervous well-wishers have warned me not to join the singers or get drunk on D-Day. I must, you see, be the quintessential bride and remember the special day. I hope I remember to behave myself!

A Mad Man Or A Boor

What does one do when one encounters a mad dog? Or what does one do when one encounters a man with pre-fixed notions about everything in life, most specifically of women who live alone and give him some importance? The two are equivalent to me and basic intelligence says avoid the paths they tread like plague. But I chose to tackle them head on. I almost got rabbies.

The mad man said [sic] "You sound like a very desperate person. A single and frustrated woman who is looking for anyone to leave a comment on your blog so much so that you wouldn't even spare a spammer." Spammer being, the first comment on the previous post is apparently a spam, an advert for T-shirts. Bummer! I thought it was a handsome Spaniard or Latino, so I had replied "Hi Rodrigo", hoping to take the conversation forward offline. Anyway! All this the mad man found out. I didnt. Sure, I dig comments because I love the spontaneity and intelligence of my friends. And I didn't invite the mad m…

The Churn

11 am: There I was bang on time at work, perhaps, in a long time. The occasion: a meeting called by the top boss and compulsory attendance required. I am, as always, out of the loop. Reason being there is always so much happening in my life that I am always behind everything. That does not mean I fail to deliver! And unlike some people who are truly into perception management (will delve on it later) and are such repository for all 'inside news', office gossip and politics least interest me. I mean, who cares if someone is quitting for some place else or is having an affair with so and so, or is being transferred unless that person happens to be someone I am generally fond of. Maybe then I would have been privy to some of the classified information ahem... So, was I in for shock today?

The meeting was sombre and had a full house attendance. And then our top boss spilled the beans. Three of the men at the helm were either quitting or were assuming other responsibilities and a ne…


Two million people at the National Mall in Washington alone. The world watched too as Barack Obama was sworn in as the 44th President of the United States. So did I. I rudely cut roomie's soap operas and switched to CNN to witness history being created. Some day I may live to tell the tale of how Barack, the much touted Afro-American President of the United States, stumbled with his swearing-in oath.

I was a bit disappointed as I watched the man who had run the most successful of election campaigns, the man who Americans were pinning their hopes on, take his oath. Clearly, he was under too much of a pressure to be the best. So before Chief Justice John Roberts could complete the first sentence, there was Obama abruptly breaking out into his first names... "I Barack Hussein Obama.." and then waited for the judge to complete the sentence.. The next line was even taxing. He stopped short after two words... "That I will excute..." and then Justice Roberts continued…
