Nostalgia unplugged!

Well ok, have this confession to make had vowed rather decided not to blog. I somehow felt that this is an area that does'nt suit me or I can not do justice to. I mean, getting awards from fellow bloggers for not even being regular with my posts was kind of hard to digest. Dont like accepting awards for what i dont deserve. Hence the decision, solely came from within.

But the great souls they are, i guess i got them whatsoever. All thanks to them!. Still feel that there are others who are great with words and expressing things by wrting. I am better off doing the same verbally(that's what i believe, could be wrong).

Must be wondering, why the hell i'm writing this post then?? :P I wont give any clarifaction or justification on this. The main reason I can say is probably the nostalgia sorrounding me these days. Its been time since its lingering on with me. For the past 1-1.5 months have had this one thought, that what i'll do without certain people, outside college etc etc. I admit tham am a tad too used to them being around. But then you cant hold on to time(though i wish i could). I usually have this habbit of not letting things go. Might be because I'm made like this(typically virgo). I'm feeling like an emotional fool already! So be it :P

Anyhow, initially had had thoughts that, it could be just because seeing and being a lot with some people might be the reason. But when i look back at the year gone by, I realize its more than just nostalgia. Every past time had some good and some not so good things about it, but when you look back with nostalgia, you tend to overlook them. Same implies to this year.

Have fond memories of the togetherness of our 'gang' (dont know why this word is considered so offensive). Be it in college or outside college we had a hell of a time. Though we were almost regular, but the abscence of two of our friends was felt a lot. Wont comment on why was that, but it was. The session i remember began on a sad note, my better half lost a dear one. Had never seen that side of her, but time shows you everything. Glad that she's back from the loss she suffered(but a loss is a loss, it is not a gain). Missed your prescence in college. But thanks to the other three, never felt alone or left out. I have my room of comfort and can only pour myself out in front of only a few(given i might seem all outgoing or bubbly). That was one thing i admire till date about the trio. Always there by your side, to bail you out of any damn situation. We witnessed a few this year: be it for a noble cause, taking your stand, not to forget dropping ladies at their doorstep(even if its not in their direction) etc.. Two of them were usually at the recieving end of my suddern outbursts :P Will appologize for that. Next i can recall are the "September of Birthdays". Two of us share birthdays in september. Had a great time. When one is not feeling good, or has some problem on a particular day, but they still turn up to light up your day is commendable. Had a tough time completing the so called project and reports. Happy that its all done now.

Prints bhi nikal gaye ab toh :D

Then there were days we attended college till 5. Pheww... that was some task. Naturally, toiling soo hard made us hungry. Result: we could be spotted at Standard's or stufing some chattar-pattar :P ;) Gosh! cant forget the day we went to Chandni Chowk. Loved it. How can i forget got hit in the leg, consequently tattered my jeans :| But the faluda was worth it all :) That was the day when the infamous '2.5 saal ka sentiment' came into being, on the metro. It works always :D

Sigh!!! those were the days....

Coming back to college I am terribly getting college-sick i guess. It wont be the same now, with all of the classmates having chosen their respective paths. Sometimes used to think sab alag-alag type ke log(including me) ek jagah pe kaise tik sakte hai. But all of us did.

Almost everyone has experienced nostalgia, as a wistful memory of childhood or a strong feeling of friendship. So have i! It has this ability to trigger a sense of euphoria as pleasant memories are recalled. Now that we are on the verge of moving and choosing paths for ourselves, wish everyone all the best for life ahead. Baki i know, and can hope that we'll be seeing each other if not a lot.

A friend of mine suggested this song Clouds by Bread! Was listening to it while writing the post, so thought of including it too : )

See the clouds adrift so far below
Ever changing as they come and go;
Makes me wonder why Im up so high
When really I am down so low

Of all the wonders I was one allowed
I think that I would always choose a cloud,
Always bring my feelings right out loud,
Whether I'm ashamed or proud.....

Last but not the least here's me and my little honey poo

wishing all a very

An Year older... and Better :P

I seem to have been rather slow at the blogging thing recently, but one thing that i feel deserves a blog entry is my 23rd birthday which was last Sunday. I don't remember when was the last time, my birthday fell on a Sunday! I loved the fact it was a Sunday (weekdays mean running here and there, which spoils all the fun). Had been toiling hard for the past week with the exams (toiling because i'm a firm believer in last minute preparations, so was left with almost everything to stuff my little brain). Moreover the exams concluded only a day before my birthday.

Was so relieved...phewww!

I think EVERYONE should indulge in some pampering (themselves) on their birthday because you truly DO owe it to yourself. So did I :P whether you’re a guy or a girl you got to pamper yourself; be it with shopping, sleeping , partying with friends, indulging in all sorts of junk, WHATEVER! just as long as you spend your day having fun and doing what you love…(what more if it falls on a weekend).

My day began rather early(midnight), feels nice when friends whom you talk seldom to ring you up unexpectedly to wish! Loved the fact that i have my place in this big bad world, where people do remember me :P The day that followed was great.. Got the privilege to cut the cake thrice :) thanks to my family and dear friends!

Initially it did bother me that i'v turned an year older, and have quiet a lot of things to be done but then realized its the present that matters the most. And i'm doing well as of now. As far as age is concerned I guess "An year older is an year better" than what you were
previously :P

The main purpose of this blog entry is to thank everyone who made it special for me! I can only thank and appreciate you guys(who despite of all hurdles or some reason) came by to wish me. Could not have asked for more. The day ended with a pleasant surprise from my brother who was least expected to visit me that day. He came along with bhabhi & nephew(oh he is too adorable as a gift)!! That was the best-est conclusion to such a wonderful day!
Thanks all :D

On Cloud nine!

Yes yes, i am on cloud nine! As i did not expect this award "at all", that too twice. Got the superior scribbler award from two of my dearest freinds

Thank you guys. You both have been really generous :) There are far more deserving candidates than me. I hardly put in that amount of effort or pain you or other bloggers take. But still it feels as if i'm giving a speech at the awards night LOL :D Seriously, its been time i'v been awarded something, what better than being awarded 'The Superior Scribbler ' award. I still have a really long way to go. Till then i'll enjoy the awards bestowed on me by you two.

The rules are listed as follows:

* Each Superior Scribbler must in turn pass The Award on to 5 most-deserving Bloggy Friends.
* Each Superior Scribbler must link to the author & the name of the blog from whom he/she has received The Award.
* Each Superior Scribbler must display The Award on his/her blog, and link to
This Post, which explains The Award.
* Each Blogger who wins The Superior Scribbler Award must visit this post and add his/her name to the Mr. Linky List.
* Each Superior Scribbler must post these rules on his/her blog.

I award the following:

One of my closest friends, and a great person in her own ways. Love her blogs & the way she writes. Can truly do magic with words. She is always there encouraging me to blog and getting an award from you doubles the encouragement!! Keep posting girl, want you to top the list of bloggers :)

Now now, (a great friend) he is a person with all the wisdom! Have not come across someone like you in my life. Love the way you blog, and the way you see things is just where we lesser mortals stop thinking. You put a point across in such a way that one has to sit down and is forced to give it a thought. So buddy keep up the good work & hope you get more and more awards ;)

3. kasabiangirl: http: //
Its been a while since I have started off reading your blog, and trust me you write beautifully! You have a nice way of expressing things.

4. Vikas:
A dear friend, with a great personality! Though he has been off blogger for a while now, but i beleive he has the potential to turn into a good blogger. Hope he manages time out of his busy schedule and resumes writing soon!

Monica suggested the link to her blog, and honestly speaking went through only a couple of her posts! But all of them were worth each word! No wonder she has a great list of followers.

Lastly, I'd like to thank you two again! I am honored :) Would try and keep up to the awards name and atleast try and scribble if not the most superior blog :P

A Fascinating Delusion

Slept a little extra than my usual. Got up at 10 in the morning...felt sooo good :) The weather outside is amazing, even now! Just love to snuggle up in the bed and look out of my window! Had this crazy dream :P :D

I really dont know what it meant. But then its like this only, often dreams dont have any meaning or do they?. I have this fuzzy image of what happened. So it goes like this...

It was around 11 in the morning, was raining(could say was drizzling). I was walking down a street , enjoying the tiny dropplets on my face. Across the street i met 2 0f my friends. Three of us, were busy catching up, i guess because we met after a pretty long gap! then's when we reach this joint where we used hang out(dinginess around) in our schooling years. Unlike before, no one was there. But we were not bothered! Continued our chats... By then it was all dark, a beautiful dark(at 12 in the morning). Thats when i get out of the place, dunno where my friends were. I was walking on a path(not so nicely done), greenery everywhere. It was so quiet, so serene. I love the way it feels, when it gets dark in the day time. Nothing moves during this period, the
only noise you can hear is that of the little drops of rain. The buildings visible around seemed to be the remains of a really old city. Suddenly, I happened to see the moon(but wasnt it noon?). Then all of a sudden i remember the fact there was going to be an eclipse today...

But how come the moon was visible? Isnt it the moon that obscures the sun during an eclipse?
what the hell was it?

10.05 am

daddy: Parul, utho!

And then i realise, all of it was a dream! :P :|

A shady light coming in from the window of my room, birds chirping, you can smell the wet mud... :) it was all blueish gray outside, like u have photoshopped it to blue gray. No worries attatched!

God knows what was the dream, and what it meant but i'd love to go back to that place wherever it was. Where its an eerie blue forever :)
Wish colud have stayed a bit longer!!
