As I journey through life, I see so many things. Some things touch my heart, some things leave a bad taste and others just leave memories- good and bad. All that I feel strongly about, I wish to jot down thru these pages of mine.... You are welcome to see this world through my eyes.
I've been thinking since a long time to have a say in this regard. You come across it daily. Okay, okay... I am talking of the wierd dressing sense of some girls. But what made me write about it in the first place is - girls in trousers. And before you think, I am against girls wearing trousers, let me clear that it's nothing of that sort. It has more to do with the way you carry it!
An advice to all those girls who wear panties inside their trousers- Please spare us your loose or ill -fitting undergarments. In tight trousers of fine materials, it makes a stupid outline on the backside which is quite an unbecoming sight! Unless you are purposely wearing it to attract unwanted attraction, please switch to boy-shorts or trouser panties, which are undergarments shaped like shorts. These cover your entire backside to avoid giving you any embarrassing outline! They are available in brands like Calvin Klein and other brands (mostly non-Indian). But you have to ask for it. Even the Indian Jockey has come with it. So lady, please use them with your trousers!!! (check the picture at the side- there are no outlines!)
And for all those trying to look sexy in sasta (cheap) stuff, please remember that a camisole, even with a cute flower or design is a undergarment and not a SPAGETTI TOP!!! For heaven's sake, you can't fool anyone with that kinda fashion sense! It will attract the wrong kinda attention because people are not fools!!!
And for those Indians who come to office in casual salwar khameez, which is nearly faded and bought 5-6 years back, please use them at home! Spare your fellow office goers such a sight and think of the company's reputation! The company pays you, so have 3-4 good clothes, if you can't afford many. And I've seen some people working in very good organisation and attracting good salaries also acting stingy where office dressing is concerned. These are people who always crib and complain about how less many they have and finally go on to buy huge houses and later cars! If you want to look smart in less cost, please buy synthetic material in lesser price range to stitch your salwars suits! They will last longer than cotton or khadi! Cotton needs special care and if you cannot give it, don't buy it !
And please remember to wash your clothes after every wear because Indian climate requires it! Spare your fellow human beings the odour! We Mumbaiites travel is very crowded trains, which is a challenge in itself. Bearing fellow commuters with excess oil and once or twice worn clothes is a bigger challenge! Even your oil can rub into the face of the person standing behind you, who is already struggling to stand properly especially in Virar trains!!!
Had gone to a gift-cum-card shop today and the entire store seems to be speaking the language of love. Its not only that place. All of the major shopping malls, gift shops seem to be blooming with Love.
You can see Love cards stacked everywhere ! From tiny cards to huge ones, each card is special in its own way ! You have hundreds to choose from confusing some who end up taking 2-3 cards. Even if u're not in love, just reading them makes you feel good ! But you could even gift cards to near dear ones whom you love- there are V Day cards for all relations. Apart from cards, there are heart shaped cushions, pillows, small cute hearts for giving away ! There are teddys holding bright red hearts, heart shaped key chains.. you name a thing and its been shaped into a heart!!!
There are chocolates in heart shaped baskets, cosmetics and accessories in heart shaped boxes, love stickers, love stationery, love this , love that..... so many things to make you mushy. It seems that the whole is in Love all at once!
This year they've included cards for the not so fortunate ones also... Something like saying goodbye.... it talks of love in the past tense and adds Goodbye in the end. Also cards for people cheated in Love to remove their khunnas!
In short Love is in the Air! Its as much in Mumbai air as it is anywhere else. In fact, it's everywhere!
I wish I could be gifted a Gift of Love too! I am waiting since half my life...... hmm! Is anyone hearing? Valentine's Day is just a few days away!
Mira Road station seems to be getting a new look. Right now its an inconvenience because of the work going on, but work is progressing pretty fast. Two more platforms seem to be coming up. Lots of progress in 3-4 days time. Good work! If only two more additional lines start after Borivli soon, it will be a boon for people travelling towards Virar ! Jai bolo Laloo ki !
There are a few people left in this world who can truly love from the heart For whom love means a lot. Those who can sacrifice themselves also for their love. For whom love means putting your partner first. But many times these people meet those who believe 'wats the big deal about love anyways?' And thats when the trouble starts. They start feeling that the opposite sex is not as they were before and want to make a compromise. But its not so. You have to meet someone who shares your belief. The belief of Love. Those who don't believe in it and feel its only about lust and putting yourself first, can find their own types! I think its really the Valentine's Day effect. Whatever it is, this bhashan was straight from my heart!
These past two weeks have been very taxing work wise!
Leave house at 8.30 - 9.00 am..... slog slog slog..... till its 11 pm !
Then toil to go home..... yawn ! Long journey ahead..... first by road... then by train!
You reach home finally around 12 am (Daddy has this duty of picking me from station at late hours!).... all are already in bed. Eat something while TV is on, then jump into bed by 1 am only to get up at early next morning to go into the same loop !
I've taken an off this Sat (10/2/2007) for working on a holiday. That makes it two days off ! Good!
