My garden is bleeding love!

My garden seems to be in the pink of its health - or maybe its just bleeding pink with love! Look what I woke up to see!

India is Bleeding Blue

Every time I watch a cricket match these days, I keep thinking if Aarti is watching too. She moved to the US after her wedding and has recently started following the Green Bay football team I think. She even finds the quarter-back cute. I remember those days when Zaheer Khan and Kunal Kapoor used to be cute. Kunal Kapoor as in the Rang De Basanti guy. Aarti, are you gonna watch the match today?

Well, mother of all matches is today - I think its better to stay home and watch it. Now I wish I had said yes to Padhu when he insisted we buy the home theatre set up in Singapore. Whattan amazing way to watch a match! Popcorn, pepsi, chips... and all friends together. When I have a house of my own, I'm gonna do that! A good widescreen TV, a few bean bag chairs, a couch with a leg-rest, and a million friends to enjoy a match like the one today!

Good luck to the Men In Blue! Now who wants to pray my mother-in-laws eye doctor cancels her appointment because he wants to watch the match? Any …

The red rose blooms once again in my garden. My mom keeps saying - if you have a perfect rose

Drop of hope..

The sudden rain this evening that hardly wet our lands and hearts! But thanks to the additional winds you brought along - we have to sweep our front porches now! grump.

Child Marriages, still?

Between waiting for my husband to come downstairs for breakfast and finishing my morning tea, I opened up the paper. When I read the paper I scan the first page for anything but the words 'Sonia, congress, M.Karunanidhi, Raja, 2G' these days. Anything else is acceptable. Well, the first article that caught my eye was the the one about the rumor that Dr.Abdul Kalam died in the Coimbatore Military Hospital and how Shobaa De had already posted a condolence message on Twitter. I laughed for a minute. Sometimes Shobaa De needs to really wait for the news rather than hurry to be the 'first' one always! Seriously!

Scanned through the next page and there it was - 'Ask the Cop' section. Ask the Cop is a section allows people of Coimbatore to question and interact with Sylendra Babu, the city commissioner of police. Land problems, dowry harassment, gunda trouble - anything from the commissioner. I personally think this is an amazing way to reach people and tell them whe…

Happy Birthday Remo!

Its been two years since this adorable Dalmatian walked into our lives. He has chewed my shoes, torn my sheets, peed at the foot of my bed, scared Padhu, bullied Chitti, eaten door-ends, shooed post-men and more than that - brought the home together! Every time I visit he is the first one to receive me without any expectations! Happy birthday to my adorable little buddy Remo! Hope mummy gave you the leftovers from her cake and pedigree soaked for an hour in milk - the way you like it! ;)
