Sabbatical: Day 3/ Mommy’s Birthday

with 5 comments

Day 3 of my sabbatical began with a call from an ex-colleague with whom I haven’t really been in touch since I moved to Delhi barring the random FB comments & likes. She was calling to find out about the collague’s husband who has been admitted to hospital. He may have to go in for a surgery tomorrow. Please pary for them.

I also had a few calls from office.

Today is my mother’s birthday and I celebrated it with my parents after ten years. I left for college in 2001 and college would be on in full swing by July end.  Thereafter, I got busy with work. This was the main reason why I came to Calcutta on 27th and will not meet the Hujband for 26 days. he left for his tour on 21st and I left for Cal on 27th. he gets back on 29th and will be in town for 4-5 days before touring again and we will meet only on 16th when we both return home. This is the longest time that we have stayed apart since we got married. Anyway, I chilled the entire morning and afternoon, then went and got the cake. The good thing about Calcutta is the abundance and variety of public transportation available which means I don’t need to take to get the car out everytime; unlike Gurgaon where there is practically no public transportation. I picked up a chocolate truffle from Kookie Jar which we cut when my mom returned home from work. I took her out for dinner later in the evening to Mocambo where I had a fish steak and Ma had a chicken sizzler. I quite like the ambience and it gives stiff competition to Peter Cat. Noone can beat Peter Cat’s chelo kebabs though and I shall now be forced to say that the fish steak at Mocambo rocks as well. that wraps up my day today.

Over and out for now. Tomorrow shall be a new day.

A Day of Taking Stock

with 20 comments

Today I complete a quarter of a century on this earth. I am now officially grown up after having left home 8 years ago, 5 years of hostel/ PG life, 3 years of work, 1 year of staying with relatives and 2 years of marriage. It’s a good day to take stock.  Chandni & Kiran have written so beautifully on what they have gained and droppen to reach where they are today. It made me think.
 
 
Today is a good day for introspective stocktaking. 
 
 
I have a wonderful family which has supported me all through. I have married a wonderful man who is my life. I have been lucky to have a second set of parents in my in-laws.

What have I gained? A wonderful man to call my husband and stand by my side always and a second set of parents for starters.
 
 
I have gained a wonderful set of friends who are also my family – both old & new.  
 
 
I have gained patience and the wisdom of accepting people for who they are. 

I have gained the knowledge that I am not perfect and not everyone is good.
 
 
I have also learned  that i don’t always need to raise a scene to get my work done – it can be done with a smile and a friendly voice.

I have also gained a few kilos 😦
 
 
I have also gained quite a few pairs of shoes  & bags.

 

I have learnt that its not always my responsibility and that I can’t take on the liability of being responsible for someone else’s action, on which I have no influence.

I have dropped those who I thought were my friends, but turned out to be serpents in sheep’s clothing.
 
 
I have dropped the habit of being judgmental.
 
 
I am trying hard to drop the habit of taking everything personally, and to develop a thick skin. 

I am climbing up the ladder professionally. I have learnt that I don’t need to be a lawyer 24/7. I have learnt that it is okay to be me. People can accept me for what I am, and if they can’t then balls to them – their loss. I have learnt to grow up and not blame others for my actions. 

I will not call myself mature, but I can say that I am getting there.

Long Time No See

with 32 comments

Hey amigos…been a while since I have posted anything. Blame it on my blogger’s block and my non-exciting life currently.

Been shuttling between work and home mostly. Some family visits too kept me busy. Good news is that we finally bought a car and should be getting delivery by Sunday (fingers crossed). I also need to now to revive my rusty driving skills. Other news is that court vacations are coming up in June so I plan on wearing the brightest of colours to work on a weekday (yes, it is a very big thing). June will also bring my birthday (yipppeeeee) so those of you who want to wish me 9th June is the B-day. Yes I am a little kid when it comes to birthdays. I like the traditional trappings – chocolate cake (Can anyone tell me where did his tradition of cutting cakes start to celebrate a birthday and I know we got this cake idea from the Brits?), gift wrapping paper to tear off the gifts, lots of love and wishes from my family and friends (It makes me feel really good to know that there are people who bothered to remember my birthday and take the effort to call and wish me). Other news also includes my little cousin bro (little for me at least) having cracked the IIT and a horde of us raising a cheer and banging the table in Delhi at a posh resteraunt, leaving the rest of its patrons wondering what we were cheering about now that IPL is also over. 
 
Ya ummmm well that’s it for now folks…if my blogger’s block continues, I am going to have to start writing essays on ‘Rainy day’ or ‘How I spent my Summer Vacations’ or ‘Autobiography of a Coin’ just so that I can post something here and not feel vaguely guilty about not posting more often.

Tagtime – 1,2,3,…

with 14 comments

Hey folks. Been a while. Blame it on work. We poor over-worked, impoverished lawyers.

So Mumbai Diva has tagged me…I have to assign the importance of each of the numbers from 1 – 10.

 

1 – The class when I started reading – from Noddy to 7’o Clock tales – I devoured them all.

 

2 – The number of years that Arjun and me have been married (well almost 2 – we complete 2 years this month). Also the number of children I want.

 

3 – The number of years that I have been out of college and on my own in this big bad world

 

4 – The number of my closest friends whom I can tell anything and everything

 

5 – The number of years I spent in Pune and of which I have very fond memories

 

6 – The month of my birthday 😀

 

7 – The number of years since I have left home

 

8 – The number of kilos I aim on losing

 

9 – My date of birth (Yes I am obsessed about my birthday – Kya karen? Comes only once a year 😛 )

 

10 – The plots I have in my brain for my books 😛

 

Okie this was fun…I tagArjun, Utopia, Lostie, Ria and Rachita to do it. And anyone else who wants do it. Do it and ping me. I’l come and check out your countdown too.
