If you are young, eligible and to top that, handsome or beautiful – then you are marriage material.

It is the season for weddings in India, what with all the auspicious mahurats and correct graha positions. And this makes it an ideal time for hunting prospective would-be’s, should-be’s and if your parents’ care for your opinion – then can-be’s.

A decision of a lifetime starts with a curious ‘kiska ladka hainji..?’ (whose boy he is?) or ‘khana banana toh aata hai na…?’ (she knows to cook food, right?) What is revelry for the auntyjis – is an annoying procedure for the guy and gal, whose horoscopes are being matched! Seldom, do they understand what goes on in ‘their’ mind and hearts. And tauba-tauba for love before marriage – didn’t i marry your uncle without knowing him?

In a world where commitment is an issue and divorce, just another word – it’s time when the whole ‘arranged’ marriage concept is revamped. Where taking the ‘saat pheras’ is more about happiness of the couple than the whims and fancies of the ‘richer family.’

And during the whole ‘shaadi’ scenario, both mummyjis and daddyjis are as humane, kind and understanding as possible. For even if you ‘arrange’ your kid’s marriage, the genuine smiles you show for their spouses will go a long way in their relationship.

Love Blooms.. with a supportive and understanding Family

Marriages bring forth the ‘inhibited’ stories of the ‘experienced’ – and if there’s experience, there surely can be a better next time. So make right, the wrongs done to you – and raise a toast or simply ‘boogie woogie’ as you welcome the ‘Lucky Couple.’

*Remember you can make them lucky!

My Wish..

It’s frozen. Wrapped tightly. The liquid flows to keep me alive. A few more minutes and everything will be numb.

The hands that held you tight and silently spoke, ‘Never let go’ – stare back in an empty gaze. The meals started with you, whisper a tale of loneliness. The dreams built in those long-never-ending stares into space – make no sense. And the hopes, aspirations, desires have all deserted me.

But there remains a flicker, although blurry. One day it will brightly glow and thaw me. What will survive is My questioning Wish – Will we ever be together..?

Waiting for you to complete me.

My Heart.

2010 – You gave me mixed feelings.. Made me think a lot.. And just as a parting gift for you, my year in photos..

Resul Pookutty - wax statueResul Pookutty wax statue

A Wax Statue in Lonavala – publicity is definitely, needed.. Wonderful art, real-life figures.. Eyes that speak – just in your backyard, Mumbai.. Just take that long drive at this awesome place..

Mahatma Gandhi wax statue

Met the Mahatma – on his birthday, 2nd October.. His bony wax hands are too authentic..

Diwali

Had a bright Diwali.. Atleast that’s how the market looked.. These ‘kandils’ just whisper, Take me home..

If it's colour - then you have reached India

Diwali Puja shopping – the smells of camphor, the’ impatient  silent’ wait till the shopkeeper pays his attention to you – it’s amazing..

Diwali festivities

His shop is  cramped, tiny, stuffed, but makes me marvel – as to how he remembers which box has what..

Golden Diwali

And a Golden Diwali is an Auspicious Diwali.. So they say..

Mehndi

And Mehndi – I simply love the smell..

The most famous car accessory

This sunflower (from China, for sure) peeked from every car.. Some people preferred two of these.. They sure, make you Smile..!!

Smile

I loved how these cute dolls greet a stranger..

Or were they smiling to say, Good riddance?!!

Ganpati Bappa

Ganpati Bappa, Mangoes and Creativity make a tasty combination..

Pink RickshawPink is not my favourite colour.. But it was definitely, this rickshawallah’s..

1000 is not enough..I have scored a 100.. No, like seriously.. Am geeky.. But a 1000..? I want more..

Mangaldas Market

Some may gawk, but I had to click this.. My first outing at Mangaldas Market..

Christmas Tree

A Christmas without Santa, but a cheerful tree made up for it..

A taste of Life - Bambaiya Golas

Just like these colours, my emotions were of every hue too..

Love Birds

And Love was on my mind 24/7.. These Love Birds couldn’t agree more..

Lurv..

That’s my bag – yes, it was filled with love..

Broken wall - Love

And a broken ceiling also seemed like the famous heart..

Well that’s it.. Goodbye 2010..

And Ni’hao 2011 – the year of the Metal Rabbit..

Rabbit

I don’t know, if it will test your steely nerves.. But am sure, it will give you lots of hugs.. Spread the joy..

Wish You a Happy ‘Cuddly’ New Year..
