Great Indian Weddings & life happens

Congrats ! Mubarak ~and the likes..... must be feeling real good - Right Ranbir ?!!

"It's ‘that’ feeling you can't describe"-said Ranbir

Mixed emotions,funny anxieties....and god knows what all !

So when Ranbir told me -"bhai ! Its ON. "I already knew it was going to happen. Not because I am invited from both the groom and bride's side.....but it wasn't THAT a surprise for me personally.

But.....OK.Great !! So my dear buddy is "horse climbing" -( if that's a word)

Feels good. For him and her . Both .

Families,friends,parties,week long celebrations and a whole lot of  gala activities.

Wow !!

As I say - Just two performers and a world around them.

Such are the well put-"Great Indian Weddings".

I still recall Ranbir's big brother's wedding.If I can say,it's on my top 5 picks of the best wedding functions attended by me so far. So,why it features out in the Top 5. Here’s below :

*      --The who's who of the Delhi Power circle were invited.

*      --The most luxurious of my favorite hotels were booked for the function.

*      --My favorite designer and my big sis designed the weeding trousseau.

*      --Each and every guest (barring the special ones ;) ) were given a special wedding pack/gift (concept thought by yours truly :)

*      --the gamut of food was simply irresistible

*      --the best band in Delhi

*      --and yes a heavy layer of security

I name it and it was all present.

A week long activity......

Ring ceremony



Pre Marriage Nutty party

The Grand Shaadi


Cocktail dinner - hosted by close friends

Huh !!

I can't even remember if I came home that week.Ranbir and I had a series of attires in the cars. So change and we are IN. :) [management from that time only ]

Wow !!feels great !

Don't really know if such lavish spending is a good going but certainly everything is for just one special thing- TO MAKE THAT DAY / MOMENT UNFORGETTABLE.FOR EACH AND EVERYONE PRESENT.

Does all this ensure a good going marriage ?

hehe - Can't really say or comment on that.

Nothing is forever. but then nothing is nothing.

You don't stop breathing because someday you'll have to go.

You don't stop meeting / making friends just because you lost someone close.

You don't stop travelling just because of one bad journey experience.

On a different note you should enjoy every moment even if it has nothing to do with you.I still recall on one of my memorable visits to Nabha Palace,Mussoorie.A family was there to celebrate their little daughter's birthday.And I was "maha upset" with something.

Nabha Palace 

But , the way the little girl invited us to her party made me forget anything and everything bad ever happened to me. Such is the power when you give a smile to someone else.

And if they give you a smile back then Bingo !! you're still"living" .

A life everyone wishes to....

wisely said - to keep your marriage brimming,with love in the wedding cup,whenever you're wrong,admit it;whenever you're right,shut up ;)

PS – My astro tip for all of you . Not for this time . Just be true and honest to your better half / potential better half . And remember there’s nothing that can come in between the two of you .

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…

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 and her 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.

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 …
