Delhi 6 - CC


Time : 11:30 am
Place - my bed :-)

"Waiting for tonight" - my cell ringtone ....trrinnggss.....
A female voice - " Coming in 5 minutes. get ready"
My voice - " hmmmm....huh....jaana hai kya ? "

and call is over long back.


Huh !!
She is in India . A cousin of her.....ooppsss sorry ! Her favourite cousin is getting married.
So,what am I suppose to do other than wishing them , BHANGRA ?

NO.Shopping ..

Oh...pleaseeeee....

Just over with my summer internship.....let me sleep for sometime.....and who the hell in this world would go to CC - Chandani Chowk - at 44 c in this Delhi heat and that too shopping.

Well,I am wrong. Over 1000+ people are in CC.

Huh!!

btw- if you're still wondering -I am in CC.
Only she can take me out of my comfort zone...
Girls ,I tell you...are GIRLS.

So,where do we start ?

Everything in CC is famous . or 100 years old , more , 200 years old.

Small streets , cramped passages ,people all over and then the local mode of movement - "rickshaws".... you'll get lost. But I actually was enjoying .

It was fun . How ?

I wasn't carring my handkerchief ...and sweating I was.....tapp tapp tapp....

So she bought me a nice "rumaal".

Then we went to the famous "Giani's" -had sweet lassi.....and half-talli I was...

But its just started.....moving from here to there.....we at last reached THE SHOP.

She had already dropped in this place before.So everyone knew her. She was on to her work. And I was - Delhi girls with them , mom-in-laws-in making -checking out - Lehanga's ,sarees and what not !!

I was of the opinion that she was buying all this for herself. But NO.

She was on behalf of the bride getting the things checked .She was the official designer of the bride's clothes.

wow !! and what am I doing - " dosti" .... right right right

Almost 2 hours of seeing how a "bride's shopping is done - I was IMPRESSED .She's damn good.

Well,shopping got over - next was Khan market.A place which needs no "gyaan"from me.
I could see that I had no option of doing social service . Because my car's back seat was overflowing. I couldn't believe . She shopped so much....oh.....

And when did this all happen.....

"Ladki Kyon Na Jaane Kyon Ladko Si Nahin Hoti " - Saif bhai.....

It was a nice experience . And I got loads of goodies from her.

So,when in Delhi , do take time out to check out the "jaan of Delhi / India " - CC

Being an Indian Police Service Officer - an IPS

Everytime I watch movies like  - Sarfarosh , Gangaajal or Sehar , all I want to be, in this life is - an IPS officer. 

You may think its the power and the pride that comes with the post which an IPS officer holds or some of you may say its the sheer status the word IPS reflects upon one. 

The perks like most of us know, is having an unprecedented power, ( used to-be) a lal-batti , a huge team which does ' Jai Hind ' and a whole lot of a new world .





Given, I have had a good fortune to be in a family of friends who are IPS and know and understand from them what is it being an IPS officer most of the above mentioned movies or may be the image we tend paint in our minds is very different from what actually is an IPS officer and what all does s/he undergoes to be one.

I would put my take on this and share with you all my thoughts on how & what is a life of an IPS.

Studying is just a part of it.

The civil services examinations are considered not only the toughest in Indian competitive…

10 things to do in Kodaikanal

There is something about rains and open spaces that make me a little more than hilarious. And not only me, couple of others as well . 

Today, rains in Delhi bought back the festive cheer killing the week long SMOG clouding all around Delhi / NCR. As I am usually up for an early morning catch-up breakfast with a few special folks, we decided let's step out and drive away to a place far from the traffic snarls yet has a festive cheer.

The thought came to go to Kodaikanal

While you may think I am crazy and my rest of the gang mad but then this is how life should be - unplanned, unbiased and unimaginable yet positive . 




Known world over as the princess of hill stations, this place has made me fall in love all over again. My first thought on reaching here was, this can't be in India. 

This has to be a foreign location. Pristine surrounding, lovely people to talk to and spend time with and not to forget the bicycles that can be rented to take a ride or two around the famous Kodaikanal …

What if & What about

Every night when she tried to sleep, she thought of the 'what if's' in her life that lead to the 'what about's'..

What if tomorrow or the next moment she was dead..

What about the dreams and aspirations she wanted to fulfill..

What about the loved ones she fought an hour back..

What about her 'would be' husband and kids..

What about the life she ever imagined..

What about making it big..

What about the home for homeless cause she wanted to build all around..

What about the heartbreaks she went..

What about the travel she is yet to set foot upon..

What about the many thanks & apologies she owes to people..

What about her sweet kitten- Mando..

What about her family & friends..

As she was watching her favorite sitcom series she realized that one day she will not be around & yet there is so much to do. What she also thought was the time gone by, all these years, she was just basically waking up and sleeping down. In between, it was all air.
