A Bouquet of memoirs

Yes, I did go to Durga pandal on Navami as I planned & wrote in my last post.

Maa Durga
Entrance to the venue

 I went there along with few of my school friends and that too accidentally & it turned out to be a bouquet of memoirs. I don’t know what happened & suddenly everything turned out to be nostalgic. Everything was just the same as past, the beauty on Durga’s face, the fragrance of incense sticks, the spirit on peoples’ faces…same faces including few new ones, similar stalls for tit bits, similar road vendors & a man playing  old Hindi song melodies on his flute….


Among all these things that I noticed, there was one thing that has surely changed a lot with time & that was Me….

Yes, I did feel that with years passing by I have changed quite a lot, in both good and bad ways….thinking about the good things, I have started focusing on priorities mainly, After loosing my Dad, now cherish what I have more, more often express my feeling to people whom I love (it feels amazing), & most importantly have stopped being bothered about what people think of me (this is biggest change that has happened in me, now I enjoy things more).

Talking about the bad things, there are "N" no. of things, I have become more calculative about doing things which takes away the fun of making mistakes & being silly, plan up about the future in a very “boring” matured way! Don’t do the Usual Nimisha’s stupid –silly things, like calling up a friend at the midnight and telling that how he/she is important to me or giving crackers to kids whom I don’t know on Diwali, or fighting for juniors before my principal and that too just before my campus placements. Stopped sending surprise gifts to friends- Gosh! Writing all this makes me feel how I have changed (Read –have become weird) with time, i was never so judgemental & calculative in life before …& I know that 5 years from now when I would be seeing this post, it will surprise me with the thoughts that I have now.

Don’t we all miss certain things like the excitement of riding the bicycle for the first time on our own, writing with a fountain pen, new dresses on birthdays, sharing the last chocolate with your sibling, the first crush in school and more and more crushes after that, the first day of college, first late night out….

her first ride......

Missed Ashtami

Hi all!

Wish all of you a great Durga Ashtami ! Durga puja has always been a festival that i looked forward to from the childood as this festival if full of enthusiasm , joy & great spirit not only to Bengalis but to everyone in India. Starting from the conceptualisation of Ma Durga's Idol till navami, each aspect of this festival has so much beauty in it. I was always inclined towards this festival & felt it so close to my heart  as i have few very close friends who are Bengalis , i even went to study in Kolkata & also worked there for an year (so u see lot of Bong Connection here) , n must say no other city in the entire world can match the excitement and enthusiasm attached with this festival, as Kolkata.

So today was Ashtami n planned to go to visit Durga pandals , but twist in the tale i was nominated for a Training session and had to go for an entire day session and when i came back had no energy left to go to the pandals .I know i am unbelievable sometimes...cmmon it was ashtami, but as it is said " Ab pachhtaye hott kya , Jab chidiya chug gayi khet"  Now i m determined dat would go tomorrow wid mum and baboo and would enjoy every bit of it...

By the way baboo went to watch the pandal  in her newly* bought attire( 7:30 pm* , as i was pestered to go out with her for her last moment shopping , as always)  with her friends.
(Clothes can be so so important in a girl's life , why didnt i ever learnt it man !!!)

Some pics that she posed for,

She was looking beautiful

 Will post about my visit to the Durga Puja very soon ( If i dont end up being lazy as today).

Love u all

Past week was filled wid lot of emotional outbursts for me..I had this panick attack as how difficult it will be to handle such a huge responsibility called " Marriage" ,i think people who are married or soon going to be married would understand this feeling, and my panick attack gave mini attacks to Mum & Rakesh...but some how they handled me,i can say this, that  i can be very very unpredictable at times....

But then i realized that the decision of getting married involves the excitement of the companionship of your partner, the happiness of sharing a lifetime with that one person you feel you can be best friends for your lifetime but at the same time it also involves  the big responsibilities of starting a new family , having new ties with new people ( this one really scares the hell outta me) & doing certain adjustments...(but who does not, even when we are single).

Rakesh has been very very supportive, reallllllly caring and loving nd most importantly has been my Friend with whom doing all crazy stuff seems to be so easy & natural........always made me so comfortable and very special for being the person i am....

So this new chapter in my life which is just going to begin is bringing out the best and the worst traits of me n i m trying to enjoy both & torturing others to the maximum extent... n if you dont believe then ask Mum , Rakesh & madhumita..

Rest ,,trying to be comfortable with the idea of getting married and planning up pre-parties with friends to enjoy it to maximum!!!

& hey as i wrote in my last to last post, I finished watching this movie “A WALK TO REMEMBER” an awesome movie , i believe everyone who is in love or not should watch this movie for sure!!

loveee you all

Wishes are something which are never ending, we fulfill the existing ones only to find that they are been replaced with the new ones..I am going to write about my present wish list, things which are in my TO DO’s list from long back or have been added very recently…

Talking about my wish list which I wanted to do before December'10 ( it is good to have time bound things, it keeps the interest alive) so,
  •  I want to learn how to drive a Car and then go on a long drive on the outskirts,
  • Own one of the exquisite perfumes like CK1, or Elizabeth Arden,
  • Try out Flaming shots, Tequila Shots,
  • Go out and Dine in an exclusive restaurant,
  • Go on a Road trip to a secluded Hill station might be any place in Arunachal Pradesh / Meghalaya,
  • Go to Chowki dhani in Jaipur & sit around the Bon fire
  • Meet old Friends on a random visit
  •  Watch 50 romantic movies




Out of the above list I have started finishing my 50 odd romantic movie list, starting from last Friday, I watched "Runaway bride" on Friday , this movie is about a Would be bride who goes into this panic attack before her marriage every time and runs away, it’s a lovely movie,

Then on Saturday I watched "Notting Hill", this is again a Julia Roberts movie ,wanted to watch it from long long time, On Sunday watched “If Only” , this is a classic movie that I have watched I guess 2-3 times before but never got bored ever , this is one of my all time favorite movie & then yesterday watched “The notebook” again a classic romantic flick , which is a story of a couple who are crazy in love with each other…

Now I am downloading “A walk to remember” this is a movie which I have heard a lot about.

I would also try & finish up the other  wishes in my list very soon.

Love you all !!!
