Racing with Time...

I usually walk from home to office and office to home. Its about 20-25 mins walk. During this walk, there are so many thoughts that cross my mind. And I feel ‘oh…this is something I should write’. But by the time I come home and find time to sit on my laptop and I completely exhausted. And all I can think of or can write is SLEEP!!!

Life has still not settled down in the new routine and the new environment. But it will. It has to. I am still struggling to find time to do everything that I want to do. Time is running soooo fast for me. For last one year, I was complaining about time not moving at all or moving too slow. And in comparison it seems to be running to too fast here.

No I don’t want it to slow down. I need time to learn run faster. And I will because I want to.

Hello from Mumbai!!

Heeeeeeeeloooooooooooo !!!!!

I am back.. I am back.. I am finally back. :D and that too from MUMBAI!!!

Its been a week since we landed. Mumbai is beautiful as usual. And with the rains that we got along with us from Winnipeg, its even more beautiful. Seems like it was not raining at all a week before but this whole week its been pouring n pouring n pouring. Though we havent got a chance to have cutting chai and garam garam bhajiya we are planning to do soon...

Our family is really happy that we back but very unhappy or you can say absolutely sad when it comes to our weight reduction program. :D Both the moms are hyper and have decided that they are going to do everything which will help us put on weight :D :D And to make sure that I don't put on any weight, I have already enrolled in the gym. :) (I don't have to say, I was forced to it at the earliest... you all must have guessed that)

Sanket and I are struggling to settle down in the routine. It is difficult and different for both of us. Sunday morning we landed, took kind of rest on Monday and joined our respective work on Tuesday. In my case, I have been on a year long vacation. To sit in the office for the whole day (without youtube, raaga, musicindiaonline) seems a bit difficult. :D Even for Sanket, he had proper working hours in Winnipeg. He use to go at 7:30 and would be back by 5-5:30. But here, he leaves around 9:30 and comes home only at 9:45-10:00. :( But then we are fine with this. This is something we knew about and we had accepted.

So as you can tell, this first week here in Mumbai was pretty hectic and so the delay in posting my 'HELLO!!!'. Hopefully my further posting will be here soon... Hope you all (who are following my blog) are still checking on the update and have not given up.

More later....

Bye Bye from Winnipeg

This is my last post from Winnipeg.. As if I have written so many of them but still this is my last post from Winnipeg, Canada. And I am so happy about it. After all we are going HOME!!!!
Today finally we are done with the cleaning and packing. And I am drained completely. I have no energy left to do anything else. Initially it seemed like we will be able to take everything that we have here... after all we have 4 bags of 50 lbs each... but when we started packing things up it felt like we only have 4 bags with only 50 lbs each. :( So after a lot of fighting and discussion we are packed. :) And I am relived.
When I started this blog I was told that blog is place where you can write anything that comes to mind. Now that didn't sound difficult at all to me. How can it be difficult to me? My mind is constantly at work. Thinking about one thing then other and the third. So I thought all I have to do is pen down those thoughts. But it was not that easy. My thoughts are not always the thoughts that can be penned down. Most of the times they are stupid thoughts full of 'ifs' and 'buts'. So in this blog I am going to accept this publicly that yeah I do think a lot about unnecessary things. :)
But once back home I wont have a lot of time to think about unnecessary stuff and I will be busy doing something. So I would definitely have something to write about. I hope so...
See you all from Mumbai now....

Baarish!!!

Its raining and its beautiful outside. Just simply beautiful. If I could I would describe how beautiful it is outside but I cant think of words to describe it. All I am thinking of are the baarish wale songs from our hindi movies… :) I have always loved listening to songs. I was a big fan of all the song programs that use to come on DD. I have never missed Sunday morning 8 o clock Rangoli or the Wednesday evening Chayageet or Sunday afternoon Chitrahaar. During rainy season, they use to play some of these rain songs. And today they all just came back to me. :)

Here are some of my favourite baarish wale gaane:

  • Bheegi Bheegi Raaton Mein – Ajnabee (Old)
  • Yeh Raat Bheegi Bheegi – Chori Chori
  • Oho Rimjhim Ke Ye Pyare Pyare Geet Liye – Usne Kaha Tha
  • Zindagi Bhar Nahi Bhoolenge – Barsaat ki Raat
  • Thandi Hawa Kaali Ghata – Mr & Mrs 55
  • Rimjhim Ke Tarane – Kala Bazar
  • Rim Jhim Gire Saawan – Manzil
  • Ab Ke Sajan Saawan Mein – Chupke Chupke
  • Lagi Aaj Saawan Ki – Chandani
  • Parbat Se Kali – Chandani
  • Rimjhim Rimjhim Rumjhum Rumjhum – 1942 A Lovestory
  • Kahan Se Aaye Badra – Chashm-e-Baddoor
  • Sawan Barse Tarse – Dehek
  • Ghode Jaisi Chal – Dil Toh Pagal Hai
  • Megha re Megha – Lamhe
  • Dekho Zara Dekho Barkha – Yeh Dillagi
  • Ghanana Ghanana – Lagaan
  • Bheegi Hui Koi – Chameli

There might be more but these are all I can think of right now. I will keep updating the list as and when I remember. :) You can also add to the list.

It is quiet possible that many of the songs (the old ones) are not heard by many. There is only one person I can think of who knows all the songs and has heard them with me (may be forced to do so), My Brother. :)

Chaotic Mind

Something about everything… I have taken a long time thinking about the name for this blog and then discussing the same with Sanket. After all that discussion and changes I am back on ‘Something about Everything’. Actually it should be ‘Something about Nothing in General’. I am just going to write about anything and everything I feel like writing and sharing with you all. I don’t have any plans as of what I am going to write but for now I am happy that I have a blog, where I can write whatever I want to write.

When I first thought of having a blog of my own, I had a lot of things that I wanted to write. But right now I don’t have anything to write about. I guess my mind is all occupied with so many things happening around. My mind is mixed up with all the emotions.

I am feeling very happy after my trip to KC. The trip was just tooooooo good. No other words to express what we felt.

I am a bit scared thinking about the fact that in less than 20 days I will be in India. Definitely I am happy and excited about the same but I am scared. I don’t really know what I am scared about. I am definitely not scared about the adjusting back to the routine part. We have gone through that once. So it wont be that difficult. I am not scared that I and Sanket wont be spending as much time together as we do now and that can affect our relationship. No I am not scared of that. This one whole year together has helped us understand each other much better. And we have realized it is not the amount of time that matters but the quality of time that we spend together. I am not scared about going back to office and how it will be like. I am in fact looking forward to that part a lot. I am really tired of this long vacation that I have had. I think I am scared about being able to be like what I am right now. I like myself this way and so I want to be like this. I know it is upto me what I want to be... But there are external factors that can affect the balance of my mind. So I am just worried if I could handle that and maintain my balance. I will try my best. :)

I am a little sad because I have started packing up things. We were really excited about having a moving sale and so had the pictures clicked and put up on net. But now that we have got appointments from people I am feeling a little overwhelmed. I had decorated and organized this apartment myself. So to start packing things up and putting our stuff on sale is a little ‘something’. I don’t know what it is but that feeling is definitely occupying some part of my brains.

I am tensed about the whole lot of things that I wanted to do and have not been able to do. I know I have to do it before I go but with time running faster than I can it seems like impossible. Just thinking about the big list makes me go crazy. So much to do in so less time.

GOD it’s a whole page that I wrote saying ‘I have nothing to write’. Socho how much I will write when I have a lots to write. :D
