- Control my temper.
- Wake up on time.
- Be patient.
- Organise my time and work.
- Be tolerant of people.
- Be a professional.
I am finding it very very difficult to keep them these days.

My main fear then was, that 26/11 would be forgotten like so many other incidents of violence, injustice, and terror.

I have had a massive crush on J.D., especially since he has such great taste in music. He's so totally appealing in a goofy nerdy kind of way. I read this article the other day which says that 'Scrubs' is the most accurate of all medical shows on TV.
And what exactly is the point of this post?
Not much really, I just wanted to gush about Scrubs.

So whenever I go there with moi parents, its always a trip to various temples, aunts, uncles and cousins, with an occasional beach thrown in. Whenever we visit relatives, they get nostalgic, point out to their lovely empty houses, and speak resignedly of how none of their children want to stay in Goa anymore. ( Sadly that includes me as well.) Would I live in Goa, if I had a choice? "I certainly would, if I were offered gainful employment there." is what I always answer.
Some photos. Nothing very artistic in quality, but they remind me of how green and serene Goa was.

The world is full of people who park carelessly. The Pune Municipal Corporation has a solution for such, this yellow device apparently is known as a "jammer". I feel for the poor guy who found this on his car, I really do.
Our garden produced these gems the other day. It is an edible root, we call it सुरण . I think they are called "yams" in English. The flowers of this plant are exceedingly stinky. I thought it looked rather like a turtle. And the small one was a baby turtle.
That, is my garba outfit. I rarely dress up but when I do, I go all out!
And this, is a picture of a guy whose signature they did not trust. My poor friend had to give his thumbprint to buy his bike.

For instance, I bought a pair of lovely pumps a few weeks ago...unfortunately I need to break them in, they are killing me when I try to walk in them!
Since I am getting old now, I am now allowed to reminiscence. So I was fondly remembering dance parties in college. As per my habit, I have managed to make personas (in a dance party! I am such a geek). I have put many of my friends in this drawing :) I am there too!
Open large, read the descriptions :)

From being someone who could barely prepare Maggi, I have gone to someone who takes active interest in cooking. I actually read recipes with interest, and try them out! Of course I have a really long way to go when it comes to expert cooking, but I won't starve if I have to live alone :)
However at the end of today's blog-post, I have an observation to make. When you enter your mid-twenties, life becomes increasingly complicated. You need to take some life-altering decisions, because you have to live with those decisions well into your old age. The best way, I have come to realize, is to take your time. Take it slow and let the answer come to you. It always works.

One of my fantasy professions would be personal shopper. That's such an awesome job! You get paid, for shopping.
However, this comes with its own weird quirk. I love shopping alone. With people, not so much :)

I am a big believer in signs by the universe. But sometimes I am so blinded by my own ideas, that I move my own bullheaded way. Even if the signs are about as subtle as a a big red neon sign flashing in my face.
Oh and I went on a trek recently. Am so out of shape, its been three days and my feet still hurt!
Just trying some stuff with stippling, and blue inks. Of course, you need to view large to read my tiny, ants-walking-in-ink handwriting.

(Apologies for the garbled post. I am living on painkillers. Explanations soon)
