Good bye dear!

I have got a news to share! My sister is leaving me for four years because she got into one reputed institution called SASTRA UNIVERSITY. That’s one of the best universities in India. She will be 230 kilometers away from me. And I‘m going to miss her terrible. These are few Questions that popped into my head as soon as I heard this sweet news.

Who will be there to fight with me?

Who will hit me back when I hit them?

Who is there to share their new shirts and tops with me?

Who will be there to talk with me at late nights?

And with whom will I discuss about men and movies?

My sister(left) , my aunt( middle) and that’s me(at right).

Oh god! Its going to be too tough for me to be normal! And my mom and dad are worried about her hostel life, because she has never been so far away from home. She is thrilled and excited because she is will have a bright future. She will leave home on July 1st. I’m both happy and sad. I’m happy because she will get to know more about life and I’m sad because she is leaving.

Good bye dear sis ! We’ll miss you!

My sleeping secret!

Hello friends.. I have a to tell about “The book that made me sleep”…… I’m a bookaholic. Honestly reading a book is the only useful work I do! I love thrillers and recently I have fallen for romantic books! There is one book which I can never forget in my life even if I live for a 100 years(I wish I don’t), its “Hannibal”!

One fine morning after a bath I started this book and after an hour I realized that I’ve dozed off, and I realized that “the book was my pillow”. I have no idea how this happened. So I started to read the book again the next day and the same thing happened. And this sleeping process continued 7 times! So I gave up reading the book! I have never felt towards any book like this before! I read even the driest in almost 3 days!

My friends said that is a very thrilling… and unusually I find it sleeping but not boring. The maximum pages I have read just 34 pages in "Hannibal". Frankly speaking , I had a gr8 sleep as soon as I read that book!!

Is there something wrong with me? Or is it something to do with the book?? Or is it with the author! .. I have no idea! So tell me dear friends, is there any such book in your life that made you sleep???

Have a gr8 weekend my dears !!

The days before Wedding

Wedding is considered as a festival in every Indian family. The place would be loaded with more than 1000 people and everybody are gathered to witness the holy ritual! And my brother’s wedding is considered as the” wedding of the decade”!

Our folks gathered 10 days before and each and everyday we did something new which fulfilled our heart. None was left alone and we never had time to feel our loneliness.

As soon as the sun rised we felt like a huge surprise is waiting for us to do something creative to make the wedding a grand success! And so we did.

In marriage “COOKING” is the one issue where everyone breaks their head! But we never had a chance to do that.

What did we do the days before wedding???

We got up early and we planned the menu for the breakfast! So the making of the “Puris” (one of the favorite dish in south India).This big work is divided into parts and everyone is engaged with some job.


These turned out to be the best puris ever tasted... they were so crispy!

My cousin – a gr8 chef in my family is doing some cooking!
My Aunt , she was in charge of the vegetables section


Look at the amount of onions!! oh god!! she is gr8 in cutting them fast.

The section of sweet and savories – look at the ladies making those golden balls!!


And this fellow was handling the “liquid section”. His main job was to take taken care of tea and coffee! Even in this snap you can see him with a tea flask .

Even the kids loved to work!

At regular intervals my uncle “The Entertainer” (who is a terrible dancer) with his funny moves made us laugh till our cheeks were in pain.



Even the dog had a job to do (sorry I can’t show you the other side of the dog, he never gave a chance to do it, if I take a chance he would bark).

Till evening we made our self busy with something and at nights we sat under trees and make fun of each other. Coconut trees are best place to take a cover.. Night outs are the most memorable parts during the wedding. The smarts and cutes gathered around, we talked and laughed and screamed and danced till we lost our energy and then hit bed ……. And we followed this routine till we left that place.

i enjoyed this wedding to the core! i still remember what i did each and everyday!! i ll surely show the wedding in my next post!

life in the second stage

Hey guys!! its hard to stay away from blog for a long time. I'm sure i'l catch up with u guys soon.


Before i begin with another article, I want to thank u guys for posting such sweet comments, especially for the awards given to me. I loved every one of them expecially the 'Award for bringing a piece of sunshine to the world'. I want to give one award to all my blogger friends.. guess what?! Its the 'Award for being the best supporter'. Thats because guys, you encourage me a lot to share my life with you.

I came across an interesting picture in one of the mails forwarded to me. It was called the four stages of our life.

I think there's an interesting explanation to it.


Stage: 1

In the first stage we are children and start our life by drinking milk.


Stage: 2

This stage of life begins when we are at school and colleges.


Stage : 3

In this stage we know real life and start drinking bear and wine.


Stage: 4

This stage begins when we are old and this is about last stage of our life.


I cant help but laugh at the creator's imagination.. Isure want to be in the second stage all my life. What about you my friends??. where do you wanna be??

This time my holidays are really cool. Right now I'm in chennai, a busy city with crowded malls. As i told u, I got some great friends at my uncle's marriage. I'm staying in their home and having a great time here especially with two of my cousins Swetha and Sindhu.

P.S: I'm thankful to everyone for giving me the best awards ever!!
