Friends Forever…

Dear Veda

Hope this letter finds you in the pink of health…do you remember we used to write this tacky line in every letter in English Language Exam 😀 …but I really hope this letter finds you in great health…I don’t know where to start from…last year your life went upside down…when a beautiful angel walked in your world…I still remember the day when you told me you are pregnant…I cannot tell you darling how happy I am for you…however, I am still angry that you told me so late…how could you do this to me…I don’t want kids doesn’t mean I would be angry with you if you want to have one…

Your life is changing…hours and hours of chatting and video calling has been taken over by Mahi…you remember the last time when we were on Skype…this naughty girl of yours was throwing all kinda tantrums to get attention…you know a lot has happened in the past year…and today I am quite firm about my decision of not having kids…yeah yeah you can give me a long lecture on benefits of having babies later…I just want you to know I miss you at times…when I want to have some sensible discussion I miss us…when I see two girls in trail room I miss us…when I see two girls laughing out loud in a movie theatre I miss us…when I see two girls in a secluded corner of the coffee house, lost in deep conversation I miss us…I miss those carefree days…when we were just us…I wish we can go back in time and relive those times…

Time flies…and that too very fast…things would be different…you are a mother…and she needs 247 365 days surveillance…so you don’t get enough time for me…you would be more occupied in the coming years…however few years later when Mahi would be old enough…when she would be learning and growing with her gang of girls…feel free to call me…till then live and cherish each moment of your life…motherhood is the most precious gift of god…and I want you to live it to the fullest…just keep me updated with her lol videos and pics 🙂

And don’t you worry about me…I am doing great…I know what I want and I am very clear about it… you know when I see these young kids at school…I feel nostalgic…sometimes I smile randomly thinking about the fun we had…time passes…life changes…priority changes…but memories will last…

I don’t have to tell you how much I love you…chalo…I got to go my tooth is aching…and stomach is grumbling…catch you later…and do I have to wish you Friendship Day 😛

Love ❤ AARYA

Music to My Ears

Indians and majority of Indian Companies don’t believe in the concept of Weekend…alrighty…no need to faint…and I am not exaggerating…it’s cent percent true 😎

We really don’t have concept of weekend…for us weekend comprises of only one day and that is SUNDAY 😦 …Saturday is working and usually its fullday :/  …we believe in exploiting the human resources in best possible way irrespective of the post and package…

I work in an International School for 54 hours a week…how could it be possible ‘you are just a teacher’…read well I am a teacher BUT in an International School 😉  so we are breaking the leg :p …it’s a pure corporate culture…accept in BIG Corporations, we do enjoy weekends because you get two days off in weekend package 😀

Now out of the blue, when my coordinator announce in the million dollar staff room ‘Tomorrow (Saturday) is Holiday’ that’s music to my ears…and if they say ‘Diwali Vacation or Summer Vacation would be available for teachers’ then its sheer poetry to my ears…

Yes yes yes…no promotion, no good news, no jackpot rings the bell…the way a day off does…after busting our asses for an entire week…we do need a two day break…where we can relax and have some good time with family and friends…

I hope our HRD Ministry realizes the true value of Human Resources…and make two days off a must in a week…I wish ek ke saath dusra free hota 😉 …Love ❤ AARYA

The Best Disguise Award

‘These politicians can fetch The Best Disguise Award, I tell you’ Alankrita said while throwing remote on the couch

I laughed, I met her 12 years ago and she hasn’t changed a bit…she is a reporter by profession and becomes very aggressive when it comes politics but a gem at heart…I smiled and said ‘I can’t agree with you’

‘You believe that they are saint’

‘No they are assholes…but they don’t deserve the Best Disguise Award’ I passed freshly baked cinnamon bread to her…she took a full bite ‘Whl you wean?’

‘I think Best Disguise Award should be given to women’

‘Please enlighten me’

I smiled…I love her it’s so easy to talk to her…she never judge you…and always ready for a new opinion…  ‘Kriti look at the women…when we are in college we try to pretend our family is cool…when our parents force us to choose a specific career, we might be bleeding from inside but will say out loud, I am fulfilling my dreams…when it comes to choosing a life partner…do we have option…never…we didn’t say no, because we know it’s of no use’

‘That’s not true…parents have changed’

‘Really how many…we are few bunch of people who are lucky…I am talking from a general point of view Kriti…how many parents asks their daughters…like a good girl we jump in the dark pit…no matter how much have been through because of our husband, children and in laws…we always have fake smile “I have a perfect family”…I have two loving kids and a true gentleman who is great husband and loving father…but reality is way to different…our husband might be beating the shit out of us night after night but in kitty parties we would be like ‘he is so romantic, he bought me this sari last month’ even if he has never bought her a single handkerchief also…’

‘I know what you are getting at…my mom has suffered so much because of dad but in front of the whole world she is always “ I have a super awesome husband…I have seen her lying thousands of time in front of other about Dad even when he is abusing her day & night’

‘See now you are getting my point…aren’t we women deserve the Best Disguise Award…we might be dying with every passing day…reason can be any from parents, career to husband and family…but we create illusion by putting a happy mask’

‘True…look at us…we are happy in our personal life still there are moments when we also carry those happy mask…interesting…do you think women in other parts of the world have happy masks too’

‘Obviously…history has proved women have done PhD in camouflaging’ we both started laughing…because it’s an inside joke which only we women can understand

Because I Said So…

‘Mom Can I stay over at Nishi’s place?’



‘Because I said so’

‘Mom Can I go for a movie?’



‘Because I said so’

‘Can I buy a tank top?’



‘Because I said so’

‘Can I get a tattoo?’


‘All my friends have tattoo’

‘Anu you can’t get a tattoo’

‘Can I bum a smoke?’

h61073963‘Ananya I am saying this for the last time…you are not going to go or do any of these things…do you understand?’

‘Yeah don’t do this, don’t do that…you never say yes for anything…what’s your problem…my friends parents are so cool…they don’t say no for anything’

‘If your friend is jumping in the well, you gonna follow him…No na, so stop arguing’


‘Because I said so’

Taaadaaaaa…and we are done…

Because I said so…Indians are well acquainted with this infamous line…because at some point every Indian has heard it from their parents…of course there’s tons of drama involved behind that one Line 😉


I have said it thousands time…our upbringing is way too different from the western world…our parents are not so liberal…they have set standards & set rules which are to be strictly followed by us…without asking a question…previously kids were nice and well behaved…they used to follow the rules laid down by their parents religiously…

But today’s NexGen…is little different…they love arguing…they love asking W & H questions 247…specially the one which starts with WHY…which pisses off our loving parents…

They are never ready to give reason…most of the time their reasons are senseless and sometimes they feel too embarrassed to discuss with their kids like sex, boyfriend & girlfriend…are some common issues which are dumped in a bin…if it was possible to throw these taboo & sensitive issues in Black Hole…they would have done it thousands of years ago 😀

In their defense they only have…Because I said so…well is it the line only faced by us…or rest of the kids in the world have same issues…would love to hear your thoughts…till next time…

Love ❤ AARYA
