So plans of going to the home town place thingy got cancelled. Will go on Tuesday (maybe). Today went to a place called Canary park... didn't see any canaries... but anyways that place was really beautiful (and I saw gigantic spiders with huge I cant sleep tonight). Then went to the wildlife sanctuary to see deer and stuff. But sadly saw only two four legged herbivores (one of them was a cow) . Anyways the place was dusty and green. If you want to spoil any beautiful place in the world, call in the humans! Yes they are an expert plus they don't charge anything! Their services are free of cost! Even in that forest I could see chips packets and plastic bottles. A day will come when the animals will get into our houses and poop and I would say that they are doing the right thing.

Anyways mummy is cooking (hopefully) something good for me. I did this really massive hartal because mummy was feedin me only vegetables, and I guess the hartal worked (but I am still getting vegetables but cooked in a better way) .

Ever felt a strong urge to do something that you really want to do but you cant (I am not talking about potty) ? Well I am feeling the same way too, I want to do something for the animals, perhaps keep them in my own house but no one would permit me to do that and maybe I can get into trouble for that.

Anyways I have to go take my medz, season change..sniffing and coughing

Take care.. :)

Recently I finished a book named "To kill a mocking bird" by Harper Lee. It is very unlikely of me to finish off a book within a week. I read books only when I am jobless. But this novel was.... simply beautiful. The part where Tom Robinson (the black guy accused of raping a white girl) dies, I actually cried. And the part where Scout (daughter of Atticus Finch, the white lawyer defending Tom) actually meets Boo Radley, I felt as if I am standing in front of Boo myself! Atticus Finch is the best character I have ever come across. He actually teaches us how to handle kids without raising our voice or spanking them ( therefore its a must read for Indian . Even under so much of pressure he is always calm. The whole story is beautifully narrated from the view point of an eight year old girl ('Scout' Jean Louise Finch), you feel as if you are eight year old again. Overall I loved this book!!

I am going to my home town in a few hours, therefore I am busy packing stuffs. Haven't been there since the last 3-4 years. Lets see what all has changed there.

Take care  :)

Living alone

I have come across many people saying  something like"Wow, awesome you seriously live alone? Like without parents? Lucky you!" Two or three  years back even I thought the same way when I though of kids living alone in a totally different city , without parents or nagging relatives . I thought , how lucky they must be, going out with friends without permission, coming home late etc...must be so much fun. But now that I live alone (well technically not alone..there are three other girls) I realized that living alone is not all about going out with friends or coming home late or whatever. With living alone comes in  a lot of responsibility. Since am just 16, all this "responsibility"  is like really magnified for me. All this stuff is really new for me and plus there is school work(technically not a school but more of like a college) on top of that. I have to wash my own clothes, make sure it dries up well, fold em and keep then back in my cupboard, prepare my own breakfast and tiffin, sometimes clean up the flat etc etc (things that I have never done before). So what, almost everybody does that.. so many kids live alone. Its easy to say...but anyways maybe I will get used to it like the others. Since it was my first two months without parents I didn't know really well how to do stuffs without it affecting my studies or health. A few weeks back I got to know that I lost 8kgs. Now even my most tightest jeans hangs around my waist like a pajama. Hope I gain weight soon and learn "the rules of living alone" soon. So if any of you are planning to live alone in the near future think again! And if you are really determined to live alone, my first advice will be EAT whatever you get and never ever go on without food even for a few hours.

Take care :)

Recently a very good friend of mine asked me ... "what is a friend?".... it was around 12.30 am when i saw this message on my phone. I sat confused for a few minutes... and thought about asking him... 'why sucha question in the middle of the night?'. But instead a second thought came into my mind.. 'sahi me yaar, yeh dost  hota kya hai?'..(now don't think that I am a retard or some old hag who doesn't have friends ) . We all have friends in our lives, some have like a million friends .. some have a two or three, some are just time pass friends, some are like really close . It doesn't matter how many friends we have in our lives or how many times we go out with them or how popular we are/are not....what matters is have we ever thought about what a friend is? Is it that person who you prefer to shop with or is it that person who listens to you patiently while you weep and lament over petty things on the phone. Normally we "categorize" friends into different groups.. "shopping friend", "online friend" , "best friend", "good friend" and the occasional "just a friend".....but after all they turn out to be our "friend" no matter what activity we indulge in with them .. ahem.

Now comes the thought " jo dukh me saath de wohi saccha dost hai.. (friends who come to your help when you are in trouble are real friends *pardon my translation*) . True , those who help us in our bad times are our real friends, but we don't have bad times like all the time , do we? Only a few situations determine who is fake and who is real . But here we are talking about friends "in general". If you rewind your memory chances are that you spent some splendid times with those fakies too and you enjoyed it. Chances are that those fakies  taught you something valuable at some point in the past though not so directly (and the most obvious but valuable lesson they taught us was NOT TO TRUST THEM EVER!)  but they did play a significant role in your lives.

Friend real or fake, time pass or close, they are our friends after all. The only difference is that we spend a lot of time with one, less time with other, have completely forgotten some, but can never forget the others. So according to me a friend is someone who we spend time with, and learn something valuable from. (I know you expected a really big and meaningful line ).

This song is dedicated to all my friends whether far or close fake or real , dead or alive... please pause the little ipod thing on the right hand side of the page to listen to the song.

:| *random*


Sorry didn't write in a while. School's over. Sitting idle from the past 5 months. Nothing to do. Got no topics to write on (if you got any suggestions- please post it on the comments section below) . Aww life can be so boring sometimes. To cure my boredom I downloaded the movie "Julie and Julia" yesterday. It is such an AWESOME movie! I love it so much. Wish my life was like theirs. Cook whatever you want...whenever you want.... with no parents bickering "don't dirty the kitchen!"..or "Don't use up all the spices!". But isn't that supposed to be a challenge? Like if a recipe requires 10 cardamoms, and like you haven't got that much..what would you do? Quit and say ..."aww alright...let my mommy cook the dinner tonight"... or would you think "okay fine so what if i don't have 10 cardamoms...i'll figure out something ". Even though the taste wont be the same but experimenting is so much fun! To find the innumerable possibilities and the different dimensions of Less resources is what tests your level of creativity.

here are a few random things I cooked all this while...

chocolate cake

random cake

idk what it is ..but it tasted really good
banana shake

some coffee thingy

home made lassi *heaven* 
and a hara masala chicken, biryani and some really random chicken curry (forgot to take their pics)

Reaching for heaven

Sorry didn't write in a while... was tangled with exams and everything with the new CCE pattern that came has become really hectic. (I shouldn't say that life IS "hectic" because I dont know the actual meaning of hectic. I just go to school and come back compared to the people who work night shifts or even worse off financially or whatever I have a pretty much better life than them. So i dont have the right to say that life is hectic. But since am a kid and dont have any idea about the outside world I would say yeah my life's hell lot hectic!
Today am going to tell you a story, read on..

Nalco and Balco are best friends (dont confuse them with the aluminium factories). The eat together, have fun together , poop together and float together. Yes FLOAT together. Nalco and Balco are actually two fishes who were inseparable since they got out of their little fish egg shells. I don't know what their parents named  them before I bought them from a local aquarium. I just named them Nalco and Balco...because they....umm...look the same and...okay never mind.

"what do you want to be when you grow up?" asked Balco to Nalco.

"I  want to jump so high that i could touch the stars" replied Nalco.


"I want to feel the light of the stars, the coolness of the dark sky, the tranquility...everything...I want to reach for the heavens. I want to jump up so high that I could peek into the heavens and plop right back into this bowl."

"Dude you have lost your mind" said Balco.

"Hmm...maybe...but I want to be a jumper" replied Nalco.

"And I am hungry, look here comes our food..!" said Balco goggling up at food .

" I am bored of this shit." said Nalco .

"Dude C'mon, this stuff's heaven! You dont get this in the river do you? And if you are not going to eat this, good for me, am going to eat this all up! "

"And then you'll burst and then either you'll be flushed down the toilet or fed to the birds and cats. Fine am eating."

Nalco used to practice his jumping skills everyday. Jumping up, breathing in the direct oxygen mixed with pollution and plopping back into the water, panting.

"You are going to get yourself killed" said Balco making a straight face.

One night Nalco woke up Balco and said "I can feel it, today is the day . You my friend are going to see what no one will ever see ! "

"Stop irritating me in the middle of the night, it makes me hungry. Wait- dont tell me you are going to shave off your hair or scales...or ugghh...fine WHAT IS IT?"

"Just watch....I am reaching up for the heavens tonight. I'll plop back into the water and tell you what it's like. If  I am lucky I'll meet granny "

Saying this Nalco jumped like never before. He used all his power and pushed himself upwards, breathed in the air....breathed in the freedom...........and reached for the heaven

And he did reach the heavens- he died. Balco wouldnt eat. He would just float around lonely and the still water waiting for his friend to plop back into the water.

My fish Nalco, actually did die. :(
