Life is not about waiting for the storms to pass ...
Its about learning to dance in the rain!!!
There are many things in life that will catch your eye
but only a few will catch your heart... Pursue those

This is my small effort to make you smile for a while...

Rainbow life...


Violet the future, the imagination and the dreams
The baby was clad in a warm cloth like a beautiful doll. Holding those little hands, seeing her deep blue eyes, Nila forgot the pain of her mother’s death and promised herself to take care of her little sister till her last breath. She sold balloons everyday to come home with some food for her sister and her drunken father. They were poor but the love she had for her sister was very much precious. She took care of her sister everyday for those 3years.
As one last violet balloon flew beautifully in the blue sky, Nila thanked the wise lady who bought it from her. She ran down the street to feed her hungry sister but all she could find was her father, who got his whiskey by selling her younger sister to a brothel. 

Indigo the great wisdom
Broken at this inhumanity of this person, who sold his own daughter to the cruel hungry world out there, Nila had no hopes and dreams left to stay in that place. She sensed great wisdom and happiness as she walked out with no regrets in the cold night from the hut which she considered her home.
As the day light broke neighbors had called the police to inform that the hut dweller had succumbed to over drinking and no one could find his daughters around. Police closed the record indicating traces of indigo colored liquid to be the reason for his death.

Blue  youth,  truth, peace

Nila, young girl of 16 had made her life by working for kind hearted people who also sponsored her studies. She was now much matured for her age and very aware of the society she was facing. Her stay of 10 years in Blue Crescent home for needy came to an end this day, when she had got a very good job offer in the city. She bid them bye with hopes in her eyes and wonderful memories of the blue uniform which gave her so much confidence to start a brand new chapter of her life.
She now was a young beautiful lady with a decent job and truthful life but every night she woke up to the visions of her baby sister clad in violet cloth and the small portion of indigo liquid.

Green life, fertility, well being

Life had wonderful surprises for her. A Young, charming, well educated colleague, to whom Nila reported at work, fell in love with Nila and had proposed for marriage. Nila accepted this beautiful surprise and was happily married to this person.
Beautiful life of companionship, care and love which Nila was craving for from her childhood was all fulfilled by this charming prince. Both Husband and wife complemented each other in every aspect and so the beautiful journey of life had just begun.

Yellow wisdom, joy, happiness, energy

In this journey of life, Nila could still not forget her darling sister. One evening on over hearing a street fight between two drunkards, Nila could sense that those were the ones who brought kids from different villages to the city brothels. Determined, Nila did every possible investigation to find the whereabouts of her darling sister.
All the struggle of investigation lead Nila to a house in the very infamous redlight streets. Nila could instantly recognize her sister for she was the one who took care of her for 3 years. The joy and happiness were boundless when the sisters were reunited. Nila compelled her sister to come out of the dark life and lead a beautiful life with her but Nila’s sister rejected saying she has gone far away that the yellow lights of city made no sense to her. But she led Nila to a small room where there was a pretty baby girl in the cradle and she begged Nila to take her out of the hell she was in. She requested Nila not to come back ever again to meet her.

 

Orange Energy, Power
Nila hugged the baby girl and promised her sister to give a very good life to the baby and rushed holding the baby close to her heart. The man who was guarding the brothel noticed the baby being stolen and started chasing Nila. Nila did not lose hopes she ran down the streets holding the baby tight and managed to come safely to her home. As she reached home with the baby, whose future was now bright and stable, Life seemed perfectly beautiful. On seeing the baby smile beautifully, Nila was filled with energy and power to fight the world to give the bests to the baby and she hoped the visions of her baby sister and indigo liquid would vanish slowly.

Red: action, confidence, courage, vitality

Somewhere in the red light street, the brothel guard slits the throat of a young lady and she falls down helplessly breathing her last, she wished she could survive to see her beautiful daughter grow up. If only she had the courage to face the world. But with the hopes of beautiful life for her darling daughter, all she now wanted was to die.

Yet again life takes different shades and Salient colors of Rainbow fades in the city lights.

Unsaid and Unheard!



When you were born, world seemed to be so beautiful and more precious at that very moment. I witnessed your mother undergo unbearable pain to get you into this world and that’s when I realized the value of womanhood. And when you my daughter, was placed in my arms for the first time I realized that I am holding another goddess who has just arrived to spread happiness and love.
How beautifully you grew up to be very pretty woman, soft and tender, lovely and beautiful. With you my girl, I saw my dreams succeeding. You were my inspiration to achieve newer things and to dream big. Your smile makes my day and without which I refuse to start my day. Seeing my strong emotional bonding with you, your mom warns me that few more years I will have to get you married and that would leave an empty space in my life. I know that is true, but my angel, you are meant to meet someone special with whom you will realize all your dreams. I am waiting to see that day and cherish it forever.

But what changed this whole thing?
Today here I am standing and waiting for you to open your eyes once and see me, Please see me once my goddess, which gives me power to fight the cruel beasts who dared touching you.
It’s not easy for me to see you in this condition, But my daughter I have taught you to fight, Come on! Get up my soldier! Lets fight the cruel world together! Let there not be anymore cruelty on women. Let there not be a single such beast let loose.
Please my love, speak up and give orders to me to drag those cowardly bastards out. I am on my way to hunt them and torture them for they should beg for death and I will make sure they live long to suffer the pain everyday and curse themselves for all that they did.
Let me teach this very simple lesson to respect women and to control their libido! And how I wish the world sees what I am going to do to these rascals that any such dogs should not even dare to think of seeing or touching women against her will.
Now there is no time left to question about where is humanity? And how secure the society is! And so lets fight it together, let all you women be armed to face these brutality and kick these rascals so hard that let them not be left in the gender they were born.

Your mom has lost hopes on everything. She is breathing only to see you come back to life again. I am scared to confront her and I am feeling ashamed for not being there for you my love. I don’t want these words to go unsaid and unheard, so please I beg you my daughter, don’t give up on me. let us face and fight this together. Please for once come back to life, come back to us.


PS: Trying to voice the agony of all those Parents who's children are victims of such brutality, Praying for the young girl and her family.

The only person standing in your way is you.


What are best memories of one’s life? What according to you are the moments that you want to hold on to till your last breathe?
For me the best things in life are when a baby’s heart beat is felt for the first time in the mother’s womb and the glow and emotions in father’s eyes. Actually everything a baby does for first time isn’t it very memorable and one will want to cherish it for life time? Just ask about your childhood stories and trust me your parents will have plenty of stories to tell about how you learnt to walk, how you learnt to eat.

And so according to me the best things in life is when you  break the barrier and learn to do something new which you thought you could never do. So something like that happened with me, I broke the self created barrier and flew so high for one time that it’s now the dearest experience which I will hold on to till my last breathe

Not that I have won noble or Oscar but yes I have won myself and so I wish to share with you all this little victory of mine over myself.
December is the month of events, our team started cruising through the events and victories from sports and cultural events were flowing in and now came the dance event. I was chosen by default as I am classical dancer and have performed on stage many times but then it was only me who knew what I was going through! Oh yes I am a very good dancer but alas in all my life I have never danced anything other than classical at the max I have performed Folk which still holds good with classical dancers. But then the song chosen was completely western and of course there is no classical in it and if I danced I would be dancing Western, salsa and Bollywood forms.

You think what’s the big deal, oh yeah yeah its completely big thing for a classical dancer to pick up this form and learn it in just few days to be performing in front of huge crowd. So there I was having inhibitions about my physic which I thought would never suit this form , My over Expression which flowed in from classical dancing for close to 2 decades which wont suit this form and biggest of all my inferiority…. There is a saying in Sanskrit which says you can defeat anybody else but to kill the enemy in you it needs lot of dedication. There I was in middle of complete chaotic mindset barbed in my thoughts and still in the dancing room waiting for my choreographer to walk in…

As I stood there doing my namaskara in classical form and getting ready to start salsa I wished I was thrown out of team as all I could imagine was people laughing at my SALSICAL !!! Trust me western dance form and classical expression is the biggest joke one can ever crack!!! I confessed this with everyone no matter what everywhere the answer I got was “just shutup and dance for the team”. That’s it I had got 50% of my confidence to stand for the team no matter what, But the other 50% which I thought was toughest came in so easily when my choreographer held my hand and told “Do it for the love of Dance”. Yes there I was trying to do my first Salsa step with the new dance team and with 100% confidence of the love I had for dancing…

One of the greatest choreographer, George Balanchine rightly said “Dancers are instruments, like a piano the choreographer plays.” And our choreographers, a handsome man Akshay and pretty lady Divya had played the best music out of us and there we were on the day of competition jumping at the victory of our team for which I was one of the dancers!!!!

I had just broken all the barriers I had about my looks, my influence of other dance form and there I was just dancing, dancing my heart out. Trust me friends its only passion you need to do anything, If you have left anything undone because of your inhibitions break free start it today you will learn it soon all you need is PASSION and BELIEF!

Now I truly understand what BLACK SWAN movie wanted to convey….


To dance is to be out of yourself.  Larger, more beautiful, more powerful.  ~Agnes De Mille

“It takes a long time to grow young.” – Pablo Picasso


Oh how true, it really takes a very long time for one to understand how young we turn with every passing birthday….
First of all, Its been long time of me posting in my blog, one of my dear blog friends also posted a comment asking if I am well. Now that’s what makes me comeback and put few lines here no matter what. But today I also have a reason to be writing this blog.

Having turned a year older in number and much much younger at heart yesterday, I thought I should retrospect on the year that has gone by. Ah What an eventual year it was learnt so many new things, saw so many new places, met so many people and wow the success and failures of this year which passed by. For all these experience and for all the new people I became friends with or in some way met them I am so much new to all of them so all in all did I grow old or young?

And friends, in 6 yrs of writing blogs it is this year when I met so many new friends and some who have been all throughout with me are still with me to encourage my every little activity. Thanks friends you made my every morning very exciting and you surprised me with your comments and posts, trust me every morning of this year has started with my blogging activity. You were huge part of this year in my life. Hope we will continue to be like this…

And the reason being away from my blog and from you all is just that I am doing so many activities for the month of December, The activities which I love to do and that is being on stage. Yes with all my over enthusiasm I am being part of biggest competitions at my workplace and that involves lot of practices and time to be invested so with these I am hardly finding time to pen down my thoughts but thing is I am still collecting so many experiences so that I can blog 
about all that in next few days… So it’s a breather for you till this 12th the gala event will be over that day, after which I will be back again to trouble you all.

So for the year that passed by I am happily letting it go and thanking it for all the wonderful experiences and people it gave me and for the coming year again I wish to be with you all, smile more , drench in your love and care.

And in the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years.

Come be a part of us, lets celebrate being here...


It’s the month of November, if you are from Karnataka you will definitely know the significance of this month and if you are not then let me tell you its Rajyotasava month and we have flag posts and auto Rickshaw reminding you the significance of this month.

November 1st is celebrated as Kannada Rajyotsava, this day in 1956 formally had clubbed all the Kannada speaking regions of Southern India and so the “Birth of Karnataka State”. So the point here is the soul of any state is its language, the language which is binding us all. And so we kannadigas celebrate it all throughout the month
(image courtesy: Wiki)

The Josh, Festivity and celebrations which are lined up and planned this month in our office to mark the significance of kannada language and rich heritage of this state to all the dear friends and colleague who are non kannadigas, just pumped up so much more love to my language that I am here to tell you all more about Kannada and Karnataka.

“Nara janma Bandaga, Naligeyu iruvaga, Krishna yenabarade…”  When this was uttered flawlessly in perfect native kannada accent by a host on stage, I was stunned and surprised to the core. If you are wondering what so surprising in it let me tell you this little story…
(image courtesy: Farila mam)

Master chef, Michelin Starred, restaurateur, Based in New York city, famous for his restaurant Junoon, The VIKAS KHANNA (to know more hit here) Who is a non kannadiga was the host that evening and he shook the Bangalore audience by perfectly reciting this Keertane by Kanakdasaru and told us the story behind his passion to learn this.  He studied 4 yrs in Karnataka and fell so much in love with this place and language also he was especially impressed by Udipi temple. Despite the strict ritual in the temple which does not allow anyone other than the chosen singer by temple to perform there, Vikas Khanna was given the chance seeing his dedication. He Had learnt this language and learnt Carnatic singing to sing this keertane,  for 3 yrs continuously just to perform in that temple to sing in front of Krishna. Now what would you call this dedication or passion? Hats off Vikas, you not only stole our heart that day but also you sent a message loud and clear in the audience that we are blessed to be born in such a beautiful state with rich heritage and cultural value to celebrate every moment being here.

And now the same passion for celebrating Rajyotsava event is being viral in my office everybody is gearing up with beautiful song and dance, folk arts. I am completely thrilled to see so many non kannadigas participating in Quizzes, Essays and speech and they are so much part of this celebration. This really resounds that we have “Unity in diversity” deep in our heart. And trust me no matter what we value it a lot.

As I finished this post, a dear friend hesitatingly hands over a beautiful article about Karnataka. Beyond the broken sentences, little mistakes her love and enthusiasm to be one among us beamed strong and bright.


Come be a part of us, celebrate being here and we promise to make it the best memory of your life!

And the winner App of Nokia app tasting event is….


Around 300 bloggers, fantastic ambiance @ITC gardenia, fun filled events, Platform for spurting creative brains and 2 hot handsome anchors what more would you ask for a bombastic evening?
But not only these.. luck had lot more to offer me that evening!!! As I am still sailing in the sea of happiness ;) here is the glimpse of my first Blogger meet which I was badly waiting for…

I was about to miss this event if I had not received a call from a dear blogger friend Sahana who was kind enough to remember me and informed to register to the event immediately. From the moment I registered I was all excited and waiting to meet the fantastic bloggers of Beautiful Bangalore :D  
Oh what an evening, How much creative one can get was showcased in the event there !!! I cannot even imagine a person who’s mouth waters at the thought of tasty dish being at the App event or A complete Techie gadget freak at the Food event? Combination does not make sense right!!! All these thoughts were demolished when we saw Rajiv Makhni and Vikas Khanna take over the stage and cruise everyone into fantastic jolly ride of fun, quiz, and apps of Nokia

Nokia which is back with a Bang with its awesome lumia series just proved their creativity by planning such an event to introduce their phone and apps to the indiblogger community via which they will be definitely successful in spreading the news, not only this they used the fact that we bloggers are one amongst the creative brains. This was the right catch for Nokia to use these creative brains to collect most wacky and innovative ideas, so they made us write any number of ideas and drop it in the drop box which was getting evaluated by panel of judges for “Your wish is My app” as this evening was progressing…
And so there I was enjoying the awesome ambiance and appetizers, I was eagerly hoping to get on stage at least once, forget winning all we wanted to be was just be a midst two smart men :D sooooooon I got that chance Me and my sister Ranjana were picked to get on stage for one last event to win Nokia Lumia - one last chance…
and hoping for....

And there we were standing clueless of what the event could be and for our hearts to break they announced QUIZ that’s the least thing I do well and The GADGET guru throwing questions at it :D we realized we were totally in soup :D but then ;) somehow guessing the ingredients for DIVINE Soup by Vikas khanna saved us :D and we were the winners of :D the QUIZ contest and OMG :D Two phones ;) Nokia Lumia 510!!! ;) BTW they saved our home from world war between me and my sis :D for the phone :D by gifting one each :D


With immense happiness I thought I cant get more lucky until The GADGET GURU announced the top 5 App for the evening and how the crowd laughed when he said “Who is this who choose to write their gmail id on this app idea!!!” yes that wacky brain was mine I jumped high and screamed to have heard him spell it “ramyam139…” I ran up to the stage and again this was not easy there were 4 more with me with fantastic ideas so we had the final contest to present our idea :D and win audience vote and judges Vote, completely like TV show…

After all the drama, of some blogger friends hating my idea, some encouraging at the fun of it and some just cheering me J there the judges where announcing “And the winner App of Nokia app tasting event is….”  Yes yes yes it was mine :D “AccsApp” an app which would help women to spot their favorite accessories and save men ;) from making boring trips to shopping malls with their sister\wife\girlfriend

Innovation is best done when there are no boundaries… Nokia Lumia already has the best innovative and wacky apps like , Alcohol meter, Gangnam style Dance tutor ;), and wow the direction finder was just so amazing and by giving platform for more innovation I am sure they are going to find tons of wacky ideas…
For blogging for 6 yrs now, felt very rewarded to smile to fantastic bloggers like Rachana Parmar, Sujatha Sathya, Sudharshan, Farida, Suresh Chandrasekaran, Anup Karn, Sahana Rao, Sibi and many many more.
All in all, this was absolutely OMG evening for me! 
Thanks indiBloggers and Nokai for making this evening the best evening of my life!


PS: I have one more wacky App idea Nokia are you listening ;)? “ScareApp” Just put my video of shouting and jumping around the stage which you captured last evening, I am sure it will be one of the most scary app ever in the market :D

PS: Sudharshan thanks a lot for sharing snaps with me...

Guns, Bombs and Rockets…



They crawled crossing the enemy lines belching fire from the guns, from the opposite direction the tanks thundered and cannons boomed, the tracer rockets lit up the dark sky…
I don’t know how I managed to escape from their eyes but somehow I had survived till now, I was hiding in the safe place well protected from the bombarding sound, fierce flames and flashing lights.. I had decided not to move an inch till this dies by itself but then I realized this was not happening as one of them came hunting for me, He found me hiding below the cot he dragged me out and forcefully pulled me to the battle field all I could do was shout and call out for help.

Luckily, Appa heard me shouting and he came down running to see what was happening with me. As soon as my cousin saw him, he let me there and escaped from thrashings he would get by my appa for dragging me to play with the crackers on that deepavali day!

Oh I was 7 when this happened but then this was the story over all those years of Deepavali. On this beautiful festival of lights, we all cousins gathered together to celebrate it, morning puja, Delicious feast in the afternoon, New dresses and gifts and the best part was in the evening when all the kids had an awesome time in the evening bursting crackers. Usually Boys used to enjoy Guns, Bombs, Rockets and Girls used to be happy with sparkling crackers.

Appa had a very important task of bifurcating crackers among all the kids, each one of us used to get a share of different crackers and with a strict instruction of burning crackers only when some elders are around. Hardly any kid obeyed this order. I was shit scared of crackers and so all the cousins were fond of me, as they would get my share if they were good to me. But then cousins who wanted to bully over me would use this opportunity well and always scared me and entertained themselves.

These festivals bring back lot of beautiful memories associated with them over the years. As we all gathered again, I giggled seeing my cousins who are today Engineers, PHD holders and in very prestigious jobs thinking how once they you used to boast over the Biggest bomb they burst and how they were not scared a bit, How their Rockets flew and hit the moon, How one of them burst a bomb holding in hand and 3 days was hospitalized! How they used to imagine a battle field inside our home and run around holding guns shouting loud.

And BTW did I tell you I was scared of crackers? oh I am sorry, actually :D I am still scared of crackers. But now for not bursting crackers I polish it by the reason of being environmental friendly. Cousins who know me from those days laugh out loud at this!!!

And now yet again the festival is back with lot more josh, fun and festivity. And hoping to gather again and celebrate it with all our love and happiness. And so wishing you all a very happy and prosperous Deepavali, May this festival of lights bring lot of happiness and prosperity to all of you… Happy Deepavali…

I am still drenched in it



It was 10 in the night when I and my hubs started from my mom’s place to head back to our home. We had to hide below an umbrella to reach our car. Bangalore this day was extraordinarily beautiful, it was drizzling and cloudy all day long. How weird the life is, this beautiful weather which we were blessed upon here was due to the Cyclone which silently crawled and which was now in dangerous form somewhere else.

Sometimes life suddenly turns beautiful, I had never imagined a 10 mins drive from my mom’s home to my home will turn out to be an hour’s ride and would be so memorable. Thanks to the string of things which made that night a blessing.

I should be really thanking my little chariot for all the best things that happened. As hubs started the car, stereo which wasn’t switched off earlier, randomly picked up the most favorite song of ours to set the stage on.  We started singing along the tunes of Savage garden

...I love you more with every breath truly madly deeply do..

Who cares for the notes and tones we could just not hold back from singing load. Inside this chariot of us, seeing the beautiful rain showering bright golden around the high street light seemed to be best thing I could have ever seen. 

As this song of 4 min ended, we were in no mood to change so the song played again and when we had reached our garage my hubs all of a sudden decided to pull back the car. Before my curious eyes popped out hubs told that he could just not call this a night and then there we were hitting the road again for a beautiful long drive on the streets of Bangalore.


As if writing on the windows of the car where the fog constantly formed, singing the melodious songs of love, enjoying the warmth inside the car, and a drive of an hour and half to the outskirts was just not enough we found a nice tea stall which catered to 24X7 workers and yes how can we resists the inviting fragrance of tea? There we were only two of us giggling and gulping the warm tea.

Trust me I can’t remember the various reasons we had that night to laugh, to hug and fly in our imaginations, ah! How I wish I could seize the sparkle of that adventure in our eyes and I pinched myself to make sure that all these were not just one of my fantasies.
As one corner of the world suffered due to the terrible act of Mother Nature, I was wondering at the irony that there may be many like us who were blessed by her love at the same time. How some would hate that night so much so that they just want it to be over and how I would want to seize it forever!

A long drive on a drizzling night was so much memorable that I am still drenched in it.

Screaming for justice

I wish I could describe in words the pain we both suffered, we were dragged we were hit continuously to finally separate us both and we could never be together again. Some say if your lost love is far away from you, you will slowly try to wash off those memories and start afresh. But look at my ill fate they made us stand right opposite to each other and made sure that we never met again, oh this pain is killing me, why this atrocity only because we looked beautiful together? We dint harm any of them in anyway. We always tried to do good to all of them.

Did they even know how strong we were bonded, we were together since ages. Love is something which has to be felt not told and so we never told each other that how much we needed to be together. Life was not easy for us we were also hit by difficulties. Strong rains of sentiments, fire of jealousy and winds of emotions hit us every now and then, but we hardly cared and all we wanted was to be together. None of these harmed us, we did not wither a bit instead we grew a stronger bond of love 

One monsoon day in the woods as we sat in our usual place enjoying the best of Mother Nature, we were so much in love that we did not notice these people seeing us. They did not take long, soon they returned and captured us, we both were shocked and we were helpless. They dragged us badly on the rough roads which immensely hurt us. There were lot of people seeing this agony of us but none felt like stopping them, none cared to say stop this treachery. All were praising them for finding us.

They tried a lot to separate us, we did not break we did not let go off each other though we both suffered so much pain and torture. I could no longer see him suffer so I finally broke and gave up the bond we had. I had to do it, I couldn’t see him suffer any more. And today we both have been sculpted as Pillars by these humans and are made to stand facing each other in front of this temple.


Oh Yes we were 2 trees bonded together in the woods, we never uttered a word but we were together for so long, we were blindly in love. If you cannot see the purest form of love and divinity in Mother Nature then what would you find in the temples which are built on our corpses? People who come here praise him and me for the scent of sandal which surrounds us but none notice the pain we both are suffering at this very moment. I stand here right in front of my beloved who is been sculpted into a pillar holding the loads of this so called divine place of yours which is for me is just a torture house.

The pain is there to remind me that I'm still alive, I am now standing here screaming for justice, can you hear me? Tell me which is higher my devotional love or your insane devotion? 


Whom do I call for my help now? the God you believe is no more there for me and the God I believe my Mother Nature, seems to be slave of humanity…

We never really grow up, We only learn how to act in public ;)


This phenomenon of being matured, sensible, thoughtful, responsible is supposed to come as we age. But somehow I feel these are just words for me which I have learnt with age but implementation of which is still yet to be done!

I remember my mom saying that when I will get my younger sibling in my case my sister, I will be more responsible but then arrival of my little angel made no changes to me, I became more devilish and got beatings more often and seeing all this surprisingly my sister became more matured and responsible for her age!!! Hmmm irony of life!

When I was in middle school, mom started saying that her elder daughter (which is me) will become more matured as I progress to high school but sorry no improvement.
Mothers!!!  They never give up hope on their children isn’t it? So she kept telling that Ramya will behave decent in Pre University, after which she increased the limit to Engineering. All this while only my mom’s assumed limit increased but my pranks, and my parents getting call from college for my pranks never ended forget ending it only increased.

And finally my mom mahan, not giving up on her hope made this statement on my engagement can you imagine, She announced in front of every family member that Ramya will be more responsible and matured after marriage! I still remember how my cousins, aunts and uncles laughed no actually ROFLed for this joke made by my mom!!!

But then the prank of sticking stickers on close relatives and bursting balloons scaring people etc etc which I played in my very own engagement !!! yes you read it right, in my engagement only!!! Finally made mom to lose all hopes on me and she decided to give up hoping and she resorted to advising!
Advising, did u think she advised me oh come on! She knew that never worked so she caught hold of my hubs and as precaution told all possible things he may have to undergo because of my hyperactive nature! Post which hubs religiously advice me every now and then, so here are some of the interesting advice I keep getting!!!
1.       Don’t pester for Balloons, candies, dolls when in laws are out with us for shopping and strict no to roadside Boiled Ground nuts, are you asking why specifically no to ground nuts? Oh that’s because post eating ground nuts I love playing  a “Groundnut Missile Game” this is to throw the groundnut shell  on someone passing by and ask sorry :D and then count the number of people who got hit by my groundnut missile !!!
2.       Don’t be over excited on seeing anything and everything, I literally jump and exclaim, hubs fear that there are weak heart people around and because of this I may be caught in murder case!!!
3.       Don’t shout “Hey you here!!” to my hubs all of a sudden in a shop :D making others think that we met accidentally :D
4.       Strict no to showing over enthusiasm in office! For ex: Once I got a very little thank you card from a colleague and I ran to every cubicle and told that I am being appreciated: D you see I am never appreciated in my life!!!  But then there were people who have got very big recognition and still :D so modest to not even hiss about it!!! I cant help them! Oh yes I remember calling mom and telling about it ;) may be she would have lit lamp to god that day!!!
5.       Not only this every time I step out :D  I am being advised by my mom , but my hubs with 3.5yrs of exp has given up on me :D so has stopped advising. But he has learnt to tell this one sentence which saves his life in public and that is “Sorry, I don’t know who she is!!!”

Yes yes yes :D atleast I have not grown up yet but after never ending efforts and prayers by mom, I have now learnt a little to act decent in public.
So in my case this is so true :D “We never really grow up, We only learn how to act in public ;)”
What is it with you ;)?

IT(s) mistakes of my Life!


Here you go with recent updates of my stupidity. Now if you ask me what’s new we all know about how stupid you are! Then please wait, I have tried to make it more professional by classifying my stupidity into themes and today’s theme is Influence of IT on my Stupidity! So get ready folks!

Stupidity:
I love talking to people whom I meet on vacations. I find knowing about them and speaking to them in those short meets very interesting. But hubs say give them a chance to speak before you do. Oh Hello, I go first is my argument!!!  And this happened!
 On one of the trips, I went to dining area looking for dinner. As the buffet was just then getting ready I found a lady sitting alone, of course she was a perfect catch for my hobby and so started the conversation!

Me: Hey hi, so nice vacation?
She: Oh yes I wanted it!
Me: So what are you escaping from?
She: (Smiles) Deliveries
Me: Oh my god! Tell me about it (This is just a phrase, most of the time I talk and never let the other person tell anything other than ‘Hmmm’ sometimes only nods! So I continued)
Me too tired delivering, last week I delivered thrice and trust me I know how much it hurts, I just wanted this break! Its my 10th delivery this year and no one is satisfied with the performance. I have done all possible automation to speed up my delivery but still people are not able to see the value of it! I really felt enough is enough and asked my manager Dinakar to deliver henceforth, now he knows the pain of delivery! (I was all proud of my accomplishment) So BTW where do you work?
She: (with horrified look) I am a Gynecologist !
My face was worth watching and My hubs had a hearty laugh continuously for 2 days!

Blunder:
Usually my girlie group tries to catch up for coffee in the pantry which is close to our working bay, and needless to say how it would be when 7 aunties meet to discuss about the global issues of in laws, shopping mela, TV Serials and gossips, definitely it will be followed with loud laughs, howls etc.
Once after such a meet, my manager decided to take the situation into his control and pinged me to warn me. End of this episode it so happened that he ended up laughing out load and has continued to smirk till date whenever he sees!

Mgr: Hello Ramya
Me: Hi
Mgr: Something special?  I heard lot of noise?
Me: (was super tensed to see the question\objection that was being thrown at me) Oh that…
Mgr: yes that, what is that where was it from?
Me: ( I hurried to justify) You know this Shift is very difficult to pass by so such noises are common, it was from our Pantry!!!  I very well know its very disturbing to hear loud noises so close by. But trust me no matter how difficult it is, we will plan to keep the noise lower and next time you will not even notice the event!
I got no pings but hear my manager laughing out loud in his cubicle!

If you fail to notice the humor in it, here you go!

I did some small typo mistake, Skipped ‘f’ in ‘Shift’ and ‘r’ in ‘Pantry’!
Now read my Justification again!
Oooooooooooooops!

End of all these, I turn back to see this as 2 very humorous situation in my life and my stupidity made someone laugh from the bottom of their heart.

Isn’t life so beautiful? ;)

It is not joke anymore!


Again one more post regarding “Man”Kind, on which I am very sure I will be hated by Gentlemen ( hello can someone tell me why is it ‘Gentle’Men and not Gentle Women, aren't we gentle, humble, caring and what not!!! Oh may be we are by default gentle and Men are to be termed so!!!).
And this post is to all those Self centered, Immature, Egoistic, Foolish, Stupid men out there who not only struggle to find a life partner by themselves and get hitched with some kind female with their parents help that too after series of rejections but then they announce to the world very egoistically as “I will be losing my Freedom!!!” (my foot)  

My dear male friends, since I am sure you are not one among such foolish men please go ahead read to see how frustrated I am!!! And dear friends tell me your frank opinion!
 A colleague of mine comes to my cubicle and says “you have to come, it is my last rite this Sunday” and I gently said sorry what do you mean, for which he sheepishly smiles and says “Yaar, it’s my marriage this Sunday” I felt like slapping him tight but I am civilized if not him. So all I could manage to tell was “wow what a sense of humor!”

And this is not the first time, every time a male friend invites me to his marriage there will be some dialogue like losing freedom, aajse restriction, No drinking, Life will be boring, etc etc!  I am totally pissed off on hearing such nonsense again and again from every other guy whom I thought is civilized and mature.  I am extremely sorry buddies I had to vent it out here, I am not generalizing but for those who talk like this trust me this is what I feel deep down inside!

Now tell me what does it mean by losing freedom?  Are you leaving your home to go stay with someone else? Will you be ever questioned by girl’s parents on your cooking knowledge? Or if you know to sing and dance! Are you questioned on your dress sense? Or on your understanding of all the festivals and rituals! Will you be questioned on your working hours?
Forget it tell me how does your life become boring? Will you have to get up early morning for cooking and follow the same routine every day from the day you are married (90% of well educated Urban men also hardly help their wife)? Do you have to make sure with all your work, goals and commitments you will have to take care of one whole family with you? Do you have to always think of in laws and your partner before yourself?  Do you have to keep thinking of fitness to keep your partner interested in you?  I know the answer is no!

Oh come on boys grow up! How long you will try to keep up the open secret that you are craving for marriage but still show off as though you are being punished? Oh please cut the crap! And for what are you doing such a big sacrifice if you find it so hard? Who the hell is going to be benefited if you are married? Believe me if one jerk like you is not married no one is worried. You can still continue to enjoy your so called freedom rather than being so foolish!

We women leave everything, our parents, our home, some will have to give up their dreams, and some will have to compromise on their dressing, career and what not to hug our life partner and to be with him for life time. Can’t the educated Male crowd be more sensible at least when we all know the truth that today finding a good partner is not easy, as women these days are very successful in every field and are capable of taking equal or more responsibilities in life?

I have hardly seen a girl saying all these regarding her marriage but why men make such statements? Come on be a Man and proudly say that you have found your soul mate. Accepted that life changes after marriage and if its true for you then its so for your life partner also! Accept the new change in life and be proud of your new life a lovely new beginning.

Whom are you trying to fool by making such statements while inviting to your marriage??? Its not joke anymore!

I have decided that next time someone invites me like this, trust me this blog will be his wedding gift!

P.S: First of all sorry dear Blogger friends if I have spoilt your mood by such a post and secondly I am very thankful to you for the tags and awards you have showered on me. I promise to take those up in my next post, Love you all and thanks for encouraging me J

Meet my ____ friend…


If you are Gentleman who is reading this post then it’s really helpful for you in understanding every darling female around you, like Sister\Mother\Fiancée\Female Friend\Wife and if you are Senorita who is reading this post then darlings I am very sure you will have tons to add to this post …
But lets start with a question!

State any difference between the following:-
 Good friend\Close Friend\ Best Friend \ Close Buddy
Men would answer as no difference all are same - friends!
But then we women folks have very significant difference for all of these! The adjectives or the prefix matters a lot when we introduce female friends. 

My ‘Prefix’ challenged Hubby’s confusion leads me to write this post. Recently we met a friend whom I introduced to my hubs saying that she is my close buddy from my engineering days! So after bidding bye he asked me some details about our friendship but then I had to tell him that she was not “thaaaat” close but she was just close buddy not my best friend types!(Men, forget it you cannot decode this line, Women sure ;) would have understood what I meant :D )
 My hubs was totally lost trying to understand the difference in the similar words (MEN!)  and so I am sure every men are challenged with such situations. Then I decided to help ‘Man’ Kind by putting this up in my blog!
So here is the glossary for understanding what exactly that “_____” \Adjective before the word “Friend” means

Good friend: One with whom we have spent a significant amount of time and have shared everyday details. Beyond that no connection, you would hardly wait to know what this friend is doing on weekend!  

Close friend: If you think first one and this should be same! Then *Blunder* no its not this has this formula Close Friend = Good Friend + once or twice has seen us cry for various reason so this friend type knows little bit of our dirty secrets :D. (Need to be bit careful while introducing to your fiancee… ;) )

Best Friend: No wait don’t jump into conclusion! its not same as 2, its different. This person’s formula is this - Best Friend = Close Friend + We know this person’s dirty secret as well … see now you know the difference :D. By which I mean it is perfectly safe to introduce this person to anyone because this friend comes with deal which is ‘You scratch my back and I scratch yours”.

Close Buddy: they are toooooo irritatingly dependent on us!!!  They also call us to ask personal advice also sometimes to sob over call and you feel like saint and extremely superior while you are advising them! And you often find their problems are super silly! Such people you don’t want to let them down by calling them just friends so these are termed as “Buddies” So that’s Close Buddy That’s it!

See how significantly different these are? Don’t you see the difference now?
And also there are other words like “Thaat” “Not So” “Very” “ok ok” adds lot of meaning, difference and flavors to degree of friendship!!! So now I have educated ‘Man’Kind!!! :D

P.S1: As I was drafting this post, My hubs just told me that he met my college friend on the way to office and she asked him how is her “Close Buddy” doing :( !!!! Seems like I learnt my lesson!

P.S2: if you think Ramya is too cold hearted!!! Nooooooooo not at all you are all my…friends ;) so this post is only intended to make you smile for a while! :D
