Oh! So Peaceful!



2016 is gone and it was really a short year for me. It was the most peaceful year for me in last 5 years.

And I am glad to say that I am happy with everything, at least, I don’t have anything to crib about. Although if I’ll try to think I still haven’t achieved so many things, things are not moving as per my plan, still so many travel destinations are pending, Disneyland and Bora Bora are still in my dreams; my crazy Goa plan is still a plan and added few more crazy things in my list pheew... I am way too far from starting my own venture, still not started playing squash regularly or mastered Golf or learned swimming but I am still very proud to say I am content. My mind is at peace and for me that’s more important.

So, in 2016, I have mastered the art of falling asleep within 5 minutes of lying down on bed, keeping myself first and prioritizing my family, being alone and at peace, not having an urge of talking and yes, I have started enjoying my food alone without feeling weird, I think I love food more than random people around. :P

I discovered my immense love for mountains than ever before, I can relate every love song with me and my love for mountains :P

I am somehow feeling freer than ever before.

Honestly, being content has nothing to do with my list of things or plans ahead. I am just poised in my present. And I would love to thank everyone who made this year a fantastic one.

Many good things happened for the first time this year and I would like to share the best ones-

My First experience with snow-

Snowline, Triund

Till 2015, it was just a dream for me to see snow in real and I never thought that the beginning of this year will come with snow for me.
I visited Triund and snowline in the month of January’16 where I saw snow for the first time, the feeling was awesome and I doubt words can ever explain it.
Snow covered mountains are pure bliss and soothe to eyes... Like I had done something really good to deserve this sight...

Chandratal-
Chandratal Lake

Chandratal was my dream for last 2 years and every time I was not able to do it for some reason or other. This year I finally got a chance to visit Chandratal. It was again an amazing feeling.. the lake, the trip, the trek and the people I met... everything was just brilliant. I am really thankful for everyone who made this experience so joyful and memorable for me.
It was a blessing for me.

Amazing People-

People play an important role in my life.
I don’t know if it is because of my sun sign which is Libra or what, but, yes, my life is the best when I am around good people.
“Good people” is a subjective term though everyone is good in one or the other way that depends what kind of person we are.
 I am old school. I still believe in things which people don’t care about and it’s difficult for me to find my tribe.
I met amazing people during my travels and realized world is a much better place. I am happy. :)

Trekking-

Travel makes us realise so much about life and diversity in the world, especially trekking.

Trekking taught me that there lies a beautiful life beyond material comfort, you can be at peace while sleeping in camps in wild, survive for days without fone or any internet, drink naturally flowing water from rivers, slide on snow without any gear in your bare clothes, enjoy your own company in nature and a lot more.

And the best one I learnt from mountains and rivers is the times passes no matter what, nothing stops for you, you have to keep moving like a river and stay strong like mountains.. Summer will come, winters will come and so will monsoon... Just stay calm and patient. 

Time is beyond our control but this life is ours. We can make it or destroy it.
                          
Aah, I wish to trek more. :)


Its winters... again.. in Delhi.

When its winters everything is so much better and so much beautiful.

Although, I know I need to travel more and figure out my career plan ahead.

Experiencing a snow fall is still on my priority list. I so wish to escape to Kashmir right now. :P

Thank you God for everything. You know I Love you.. Take care of my people.. Muuah :*

Happy New Year Pearl :)

Rat in my Car!


I wish I could say I feel like Cinderella who used to feed rats as her pets but it's certainly not a Cinderella feel! :P

I can't say a friend or an enemy but an unwanted guest for sure!

A new drama began the day I realised I am roaming in delhi with a rat in my car. :P

Initially, for 3 days I was wondering what's wrong with my fruits and chapati rolls... I used to pack chapati rolls in foil and fruits as they are and used to keep them in a small jute bag... It's very much easy to eat while I drive throughout the day.

Lately, every time I used to pick anything to eat it used to be half :P

And not even in my weird imagination I ever thought it can be a rat!

The moment of realisation was when one evening I picked a wrap to eat while driving back to home just to realise it's half again... Since I was dead hungry I ate it... Came back home and told mom about this... she looked into my Tiffin bag and said "it's a rat"

Hell broke loose.. not because there was a rat in my car but I was eating rat's half eaten food everyday for past 3 days... I was shocked, I skipped my dinner in trauma... What the hell.. I was sharing my car and food with a RAT... Same evening, I ordered for a rat kill, kept it in car and slept early.

Next morning, I excitedly went to check if the rat is gone or not.. all the rat kill disappeared and I was happy thinking "yayy, he ate it all" :P.. 

Just to ensure if the rat is gone or not, I kept a bread in car and closed it to check if its still there... In 5 mins he ate the bread! Another shock... A Rajnikant Rat, ate all my rat kill and still jumping around happily! :-(

I am someone like Joey (from friends) who never shares his food and I was sharing my food with a smart "South Indian Superstar" version of a small rat!

Now, since I knew... rat is there I refused to drive the car... And it was in mind all the time...

Another challenge was to drive the other car which instead drives me... So, I'll tell you when I drive this other car I need to be super cautious and can't talk or eat or do anything else... Just focus on the drive! Life is being just too adventurous. :P

Every time when I think of this rat trouble... I come up with a stupid idea "what about having a cat in my car to get rid of this rat.. plus this will give me a chance to enjoy the live episode of Tom and Jerry".. Wow! :P

Not so funny!

But, yeah this is really funny and crazy... Anyhow, I feel blessed to have one more option to drive...

Let's hope to get rid of this tiny creature as early as possible.

By the way God, it's December again... My history of Decembers is worth mentioning but may be some other time...

Love you God. Take care of my people. And thank you for everything (except Rat).. :-)) muuaaah

P.S.- Belated Happy 7th Birthday Pearl!

Imtiaz Ali!


Well, this is my first ever post dedicated to an individual and that too not my favourite actor or singer or influential people in my life but to my favourite movie director- Imtiaz Ali.

I am a very filmy person and movies leave a great impact on me. This post might be a result of two disastrous movies I watched back to back this Saturday- “Ae Dil Hai Mushkil “and “Shivaay”.

To be very honest, I was super excited for ADHM and okay okay types for Shivaay but after watching them I was in a state of shock.

Every time I watch another disaster on big screen my desperation for Imtiaz’s next movie increases.

No matter what people say about Rockstar or Tamasha they were 2 of the finest Imi’s movies.

I loved Rockstar and still remember that very feel. I was on bed for 3 days... down with fever after watching that movie.

I don’t remember missing any of his movies till date (except Ahista Ahista) and I have always watched all of them on the release date...

I even remember the time in my life when each movie released-

Jab we met was released when I was in my graduation 3rd year, we bunked our classes on Friday and rushed for the movie.

Love Aaj Kal came when I was doing my MBA, again we bunked classes and watched it and this time I had my semester exam on the next day :)

Rockstar was released when I was stuck in a painful job in a start-up company, I still remember how I managed to reach for the movie at 7.30pm... pheww but yes, I watched it on the date of release :)

Highway released when I was working in a bank, I had a pretty good life and great people around. And Alia’s character was something I still relate to...

Tamasha is a recent one, I loved it too... Ranbir’s hidden personality of a traveller was something I can relate so well with and I loved the movie as whole.

Socha na tha is one movie watched much later after the release date but it’s very close to my heart and I watched it more than 15 times, even today whenever I feel low I pick up a Disney movie or “Socha na tha”

Imtiaz’s movies are brilliant and never fail to amaze me... I am waiting for his next one with Srk which is still out of news so far. 

And honestly, I have no interest in talking about ADHM or Shivaay, Lucky are those who didn’t get tickets or believed the reviews... Yes, the reviews are all true. Both movies are disasters.


Dear God, I still love you with all my shocked heart and will always do. Take care of my people. Muuaah :)
