Diwali Disaster and Ra One!

No, my Diwali wasn't a disaster coz of Ra One. Its just another random title!

They say Diwali is a festival which makes you peaceful over evil by burning/bursting out evil and getting good. My mom would force me to light atleast a candle to throw out all the evil from me :) If this is true, don't we like to celebrate it daily? I don't believe in all this. If I want to have some peace, I make it right away at the moment. I don't wait for that RIGHT time. For me, the right time is right here! And yes! I love celebrating Diwali.

This is the second year in a row we couldn't celebrate Diwali here. I still remember last year spending dussera and diwali completely at temples as I was new to this place and no other chance except visiting temples with families I know. And this year, not that my connection with God is decreased but wasn't so much attracted to temples. We just planned to go to office in Indian attire, visit temple, see the fire works and have some good food.

But my day started as a disaster. As soon as I logged onto FB to wish my friends, all their updates caught my attention and I started missing my family and friends. The whole day I was numb, dull and left office very early. I wanted to spend sometime all alone. The best thing I could do is sleep and rest. Unfortunately, only after reaching the temple, we realised that the fire works are done the weekend before and nothing on Diwali except some pujas. Another Diaster! :(

Oh wait! There are these few good things that happened too - dressing up for office, good indian food and the photoshoot. My roomie and I are never bored of these! :)

This is what I wore for Diwali.. Dress for the day!

My dad's favorite pose :)

Dress: India
Earrings: Forever 21 (Friend's :))
Shoes: Payless

Coming to Ra One, many people advised/suggested not to watch. But nevertheless, I watched it! (I don't believe things untill I see with my own eyes you know :P). Only after watching I understood that its lot better than the Hollywood series like Terminator. I agree SRK is looking foolish funny and they tried insulting immitating tamilians (which is not so good) showing SRK eating noodles + dahi with hand. Did you just say yuck? The much laughed joke is where Kareena says Kondom Kondom for Konjum Konjum (means little little in Tamil) :) I obviously liked the Chammak Challo song and I am still wondering why people dint like the movie (I have strange taste sometimes, never mind!).

P.S. I just received my iPhone.. yayyy!! :D


  1. Awesome....Your Charming... :)

  2. You liked that's one hell of disaster itself :P Its neither a kids movie nor for youth.

    I suggested it for few more friends and they are going to watch this weekend. Let's see their reaction ;)

  4. Firstly, you are looking good in the pics. And festivals are meant for speeding some good quality time with family and friends. Don't worry next time you ask your parents to come there and you can celebrate together.

    You liked "Ra One!"? Whats is wrong with you? :P

    Congrats on the new Phone. Welcome to apple family.

Polka Dots Please

I love how Polka Dots are so versatile. You don't need to wait for a season to wear them or in fact wait for any occasion. I've got enough of my polka dots outfits and I love all of them. Especially this blazer.. I was bit skeptical when I bought this if it looks too formal and works well only as formals. But let me tell you. This will go with anything and everything.. for a work meeting with formal trousers and shirts, at the same time you can wear for a family dinner or carry it as a warmer for a cocktail party when you feel chills with your drinks. Or for a girls casual day-out wearing with a simple jeans and t-shirt like this one. 
Here, I styled it with my favourite jeans over a tube top, accessorised with a simple choker and an aqua shade finger ring (not well captured but another favourite one). Ended with a pony tail and black heels which I think gave a classy look, no? What do you think? Let me know how it works for you.

Summer Dream

Starting with some "long time no see" ranting.. 😀 I can't believe that its been such a long time I opened the blog to write a post. The last time I was here, I wrote a long travel post with some nice pictures and I lost the whole thing for the second time when I was editing the format. I got fed up and procrastinated it forever. 
Then this post was supposed to go in summer around August. But I realised that managing a blog with a full-time job (which you love the most), travelling, other hobbies and long to-do lists of personal errands is not an easy task after all. And falling sick in-between all this makes it even more worse. The blog totally had to take a back seat.
Coming to the weather part, this year has been a disaster. Every one of us felt like we got cheated by Stavanger. Or the Sun God decided not to visit us. Or the Earth didn't tilt well enough for Norway to get some Sun. Whatever! Would you believe if I say that this whole year gave us the sunny days th…

What is L.O.V.E.?

The four lettered happiest, hurtful, mysterious (and what not!) word causing happiness, pain and loads of confusion in lives of people. While I started to write something about it on this "so called" special day, nothing popped up in my mind. Like nothing. Nada. 
I questioned myself - Can we really say/write about love? Can we really define love? Isn't Love a feeling to experience and an expression to let someone know about your feeling? There are SO many kinds of love that words alone can never do it justice. Probably that is the reason they simplified it to the phrase 'I Love You'.
Love towards our parents, siblings, husband/wife, kids, family, friends, pets, acquaintances, and even to a stranger, we show our love and respect. Each one of us has our own feeling, experience, definition and obviously our own ways of expressing it.
Love is like a sneeze, I feel.. you know.. the restlessness before and the relaxation after. Its exactly the same. And you cannot explain…
