8+6=86 and Counting!


86 years ago, this day a STAR was born(atleast for me), my Grandfather my “SUPERSTAR”

When I spoke to him two days back, I said it’s your Birthday on Monday. He said ” Birthdays come and go and Wow, you remember”
I said everyone remembers and he laughed. My Grandad is an example of a person who believes ” Age is only a number”

He is

“Someone who is my Friend.
Someone who is my Guide.
Someone who is my HERO, apart from my Parents.
Someone whom I always look up to.
Someone who is my source of Inspiration everytime.
Someone whom I respect Immensely.
Someone with Silver strands in his hair and Gold in his heart”

He enjoys Pizzas and everytime I am in town, he finds ways to convince my Grandmom to let us go out and have a yummilicious Pizza Meal. Everytime I speak to anybody who was acquainted with my Granddad at some point of time in their lives, I can only hear admiration and immense gratitude for the person he is. At such times, I feel ” it’s such a blessing to be his Grandchild”

I find it really hard to put into words about people I really care about, maybe its the Love and Respect I have for them which cannot be put into mere words.

Happy B’Day Thatagaru and may you have a 100 more. I will take you on a Pizza date when I am in town next πŸ™‚

You’ve grown younger by a year!


There are very few Women who inspire me in my Life one is my Mom and another one of them is my Aunt. We often joke that we are a crazy family. As a kid I always looked forward to the letters she wrote to me sitting 4000miles away. Thanks to whatsapp now I keep bugging her most of the time.

Jokes apart, there are a lot of things I’ve learnt from her in life (I’ve never told her this till date btw). Her value for education and to stand on one’s own feet inspires me to be an independant person every day. She makes me beleive that life isn’t a bed of roses and only hardwork is the key to being successful in everything we do. Her nononsense attitude has taught me not to take anything for granted. Lastly and most importantly I’ve learnt to value education and make the best of it from her.

She inspires me every single day the last being when she did an MBA when I was pursuing mine. In my head I was like oh my gosh what do I need to study next if my aunt is studying at this rate. Today she grows another year younger, I beleive age is a number and as you celebrate your birthday every year you grow younger by a year. Happy B’day Pinny, may you have the best year ahead and keep inspiring everyone around you. (Damn I never knew it would be this tough to write about you πŸ˜‰ )

Love and Laughter always

Twinkle in her Eyes


At times some people enter your life like a storm and are here to stay. She entered my life like a gushing stream of water and did not return back ever again.

I always tell her you will give the President of any country a run for their position. Loud, bright, colorful, bubbly in other words a typical Delhi Kudi. If she opens her mouth to talk, it’s only when she sleeps she will shut it. Talks a dime to a dozen. She can beat up any guy and make him go weak in his knees but at the same time has the sensitivity of a girl.

Nature wise I love socializing and meeting new people but it’s very few who I actually let into my life. She’s one of the few. I have lost count of the number of guys who have asked me for her phone nos, sigh!!

Has a heart of gold, appears as tough as steel but isn’t. If I tell her she’s being an idiot n should be sensible she makes sure she proves herself to be an idiot again. She carries this charm around her even if you want to, you just cannot hate her, sigh again!!

I’ve lost count of the number of years we have been friends, but I cherish her presence in my life. Life is beautiful when wonderful people are a part of it. True??

Do you agree with the title R?? πŸ™‚


Grandmother’s 75th


So yesterday my Grandmom turned 75 years and this was the first time we celebrated her b’day. The truth is we never knew her birthday till like a few weeks back. My Grandad happened to find her DOB n that’s how the while plan of coming up with a b’day celebration came up. Cute know??

I was excited to be celebrating her b’day cuz I really wanted to see how she would respond. She has always been this fuss-free kind of a person who doesn’t like much pomp n show ESP when it comes down to herself.

She kind of knew behind our backs that we were upto something and yesterday she tells me you know “I have the ears of a snake,I get to know everything” (obviously snakes don’t have ears that’s just a saying in Telugu). So though she grunted n grumbled for making her cut a cake n doing a whole family lunch thingy I think she secretly enjoyed πŸ™‚

Here’s wishing my Grandmom a wonderful year ahead with good health, love,togetherness and happiness.



My Granddad – An Inspiration


Last week my Granddad celebrated his 85th b’day. On wishing him he had a very cute thing to say. He said β€œI’ve had a very long innings” and we both laughed after it.

85 years is indeed a long life and touchwood he is still the same young at heart person even till date. Age is only a number, which changes every year, but what remains is your personality. It’s up to you how you grow with your age. My Granddad has grown gracefully with age and every year he leaves me in awe all the time. He may be 85 but he can give any 20-year-old competition. For his age he’s perfectly fit and goes on with his day-day activities all by himself.

I am the first grandchild in the family and the only girl. We are a total of 5 grandchildren and all of us have been spoilt rotten by our grandparents. As far as I can remember the times and memories spent with my Granddad are still fresh in my mind and bring a smile on my face always.

He’s been one of my role models in my life and I have always looked up to him. Even at this age he wakes up at 3 everyday and performs his daily rituals of pujas and reading the Bhagvad Gita. A red tilak on his forehead, a nicely ironed white dhoti and a white formal shirt is how I would like to describe him. At this age he is well informed and knows every minute detail of his surroundings that it leaves a question in my head all the time that ” how is he so well informed even at this age”. He loves education and has always inspired me to be well educated and stand on my own feet. Every small achievement of mine always made him beam with pride.

There is so much to learn from him and I am still learning. He is filled with positive energy which is so contagious that you are actually made to sit n think life is indeed full of experiences and it’s a beautiful gift. There is this really sweet incident which I remember during the wedding ” I wanted my Grandad to bless me first”.

If I can be atleast 25% of what he is that would be a great achievement for me. There is so much to write about my Granddad but I don’t know this is the first time I am finding it difficult to put in down in words. I can sum it up by saying he is and will always be my inspiration. My inspiration to be a nice human being and to be kind, this is one of his many qualities which I adore. His recent wish was to teach him how to use the iPad so very soon he will be my hi-tech Grandpa πŸ™‚

Recently my Granddad called me to plan for a surprise for my Grandmother who turns 75 years next month. What I found really cute is even after so many years of marriage the love and affection among them is still alive. They still look out for each other and nothing has changed. Relationships like my grandparents, my parents are all an inspiration for me and I wish to have such a long living relationship too in my marriage πŸ™‚

Its all about looking out for each other and being there for each other πŸ™‚

I wish my Granddad has another wonderful year ahead of him with all the love,happiness and good health always!

Do Relationships fade with time??


Do Relationships fade with time ??

Do you’ll think it’s true that after a while it looses it’s aura and spice??

Like we always say ‘you will get bored doing the same task day in and day out you will need a change at some point’

True,very true I stand by that at every stage in our lives we need lil changes like refresher courses to keep us going. But tht can be applied to practical life but can the same be applied to a relationship?

I don’t think in relationships with parents and siblings one can ever get bored or d relationship can fade but when it comes to a marriage is it the same ?? Can it fade and loose it spice with time ??

This thought hit my grey matter when somebody I knew was telling me about how a particular Mr.X kept thinking of other people n wanted to make ‘so called frannnshipps’ with A,B,C inspite of being married for some 15 odd years.

I was actually taken aback cuz for me marriage is a lifelong relationship n it’s a lifelong commitment. My partner is my bestest friend n soulmate n I can never think of anybody else to take his place in my life. Be it after 15yrs or even after 30 it will remain the same.

It actually got me thinking do relationships really create a distance n become dull after a while? Maybe it’s true maybe two people are still together for the sake of being together but have no feelings for each other like they had couple of years back.

Well in my opinion like we need lil getaways from our daily routines in marriage also we need small getaways now and then.

Just because two individuals r married doesn’t mean that’s the end to life and u cut back on everything else. I c tht happening most of d times u cut off from friends from activities you probably enjoyed doing before marriage et al. Obviously in such scenarios your relationship would become dead as its only the both of you won’t you get bored looking at each others face everyday ? Anybody would.

So what do you do ??

Firstly the prime rule to remember is your just getting married it’s just another mask your going to don Just another important person is going to be a part of ur life somebody whom you love and care for. Everything else remains the same there’s no need for a change.

You can still meet your friends go out have a girls/boys night out,still continue taking time out for ur fav hobbies etc but make sure u don’t overdo it as anything overdone is never good n it shouldn’t become a top priority of your life. Take lil breaks go for small holidays with your better half relive your old days ,do things you’ll loved doing when you were younger n haven’t done it for a while.

The beauty of any relationship is you need to keep it alive and keep it going.

Till we meet again πŸ™‚
