This was the date on which the last post was posted on this page.

And while contemplating what to really write, the world just change.

The Indian/Modi Government decided that the cash in your pocket is useless, and worthless, and that for the next 50 odd days, there will be major hiccups, and what not while running your households. Minor expenses such as vegetables (from the thela wala vendors), will become a task, as you search for change under the mattresses and the sofas!

While, Shayon disagrees with me, there will be major ripple effects that our maglomaniac PM forgot to take into consideration. Though, I must appluad him for taking this bold step.

And, while, we were reeling under the shock of our worthless money, a bankrupt, misygyonist, racist, tax evader, capitalist maglomaniac won the elections in the most powerful country in the World! He did Trump us all.

And amongst all of this, do you all even remember what were you guys upto on July 11, 2013, when the last post went up.

Soccer vs Football

All things done and said, Brazil’s defeat against Germany attracted too many unsolicited reactions. Suddenly many so called Brazil fans also switched loyalty to Germany. For them now Germany is a better ‘team’ and they should win the world cup. Also I must say that some of the funny quotes /pictures doing rounds in the Internet are really hilarious. But you can not discard decades of entertainment and excitement Brazilian football stars have provided just based on their one bad day at play!. Probably stars were not in their favor on that fateful day.(with few stars even missing!- Neymar, Silva) Brazil caught the imagination of the world , which also includes fish loving bespectacled race simply by virtue of their magical touch with the ball. They taught how to romance with the ball (no pun intended). All the slicing and dicing of match statistics would tell you that Germany were far better team in the match. Game plan, strategy, mental strength, physical strength , co-orndination, ball p…

When I escaped death !!!

12th June'13, 10.30 pm : I was driving back from a dinner party at dizzying speeds of around 80 KMPH inside a city. Then in my psychedelic drive (yes I get high without alcohol), I saw a signal square few 100 meters ahead. I decreased the speed (Signals are switched off after 10 pm in Nagpur so exercised caution) to 60 KMPH (I am an engineer and I like my exact figures) but my car jumped off a speed breaker which I could not spot in the city darkness. I thought I controlled my car by the time I reached the signal square but baaaaangggg !!!


Few seconds later - I realized I was still alive!! saved by the airbag. Take a note everybody.


The same day during daytime around 4.30 pm, I was feeling restless with a feeling of fear & anxiety inside me. A friend inquired and I replied back "I can feel something bad is going to happen with me today".


That night I was hit by a speeding car straight (at 90 degrees) on the driver's door. Upon impact of the other car on my door, I l…

The world we live in

Long time ago, by an instantaneous miracle, our world was created. So it happened Naari & Purush came upon to dwell upon this new world just so abruptly; both equal and complementary. The beginning was an Utopian dream in hindsight. Legend has it, the world would remain just so beautiful as long as a particular ring was out in the existential world. It is said the essence of life was inscribed on the ring. The inscription itself was indecipherable to anyone. Thus Naari and Purush explored the new world and lived happily together in harmony.

With passing time, the numbers grew and to manage numbers a structure was required. Thus came upon the reign of Sabhyata. Under it rules were established and responsibilities marked for each possible classifications of the race of Naari & Purush. There were boundaries set both territorial and abstract, which strictly were not to be crossed. The Utopian landscape was getting some shape & structure. The ring was still out there though; thu…

And Finally we are married!

This weekend, Shayon and I complete one month of "Wedded Bliss".. ;)

Whether it is bliss or not, well, that requires a lot of questions, answers and discussions. Without going in the details of that..

I want to really Thank every one here on TWM for being there on the most important day of our lives. The presence of TWM members is even more special because they have been a part of our relationship through the last eight years, through our ups and downs.
Through the phone calls that I made to track down Shayon and through the chats and troublesome advice that I took, or simply the rants that I have vented out at so many of you.

The whole thing became extra special with our very own Mannu bhai enthusiastically participating in the dancing and actually managing to do a salsa piece and a disco piece ;) Thanks a ton Mannu!
And to our very own Karma, who clicked some of the most beautiful moments of the wedding :)


To all those who were not there, Shayon and I missed you!

Happy Diwali

Wishing you all a very happy and a prosperous Diwali!
