Reflections on Reality!

Mumbai katzenjammer

I despised mumbai the moment i stepped in the city. I should mention here that the station i landed on was Kalyan. The pollution in conjunction with the population had scared me. The next abode in mumbai was near Andheri, again the culture had scared me. Before I could watch and judge i was absorbed into the rush of life that is there. I found myself criticizing the people who dangled from the local trains and jump on one myself hanging to just one pole for reaching office in time. I hated the unhygienic way the ‘pavs‘ were carried around, but grabbed bites of vada pav unthinkingly, the way the panipuri wala with his pan stained hands dipped the puri in the pani had irked me but oft did i stop by him myself to have a plate! Mumbai gave me no time to think but just got me addicted. Today i walked a few lanes in search of those tastes, and phew long did it take me to find a vada pav in Bangalore. They gave me the vada wrapped in the bakery prepared clean fat bread! but my heart wouldn’t yield to anything lesser to those pavs carried in bicycles through the dusty polluted roads of Mumbai. I have volvos here for local transport..but i yearn to watch the yellow colored hold-ons (what do u call them??) in the local trains dance to their on rhythm. There are plenty of gardens still I wish I could go back to that dusty Andheri sports complex for my morning walk.
How do i describe the feeling? Not that ive left too much of friends in the city..the city doesn’t give space for friendship beyond a level. There friends are like butterflies extremely pleasing when they are around, long forgotten when gone! Not that I have blasted my life out there! The city got me addicted and I still cant believe I left it behind. I still cant believe that walking past the infinity mall and lokhandwala market is so distant a dream now! I can’t believe I’m thinking so much of a place which just dint give me the time & space to think of anything in life!

On your marks, Get set, Go!

Ive been pregnant (with thoughts) and been feeling the pain lately. A sense of dejection (god knows for what), a sense of hating idleness as i indulge in it, a sense of despising the hectic routine as im forced to it!

Lemme rush to the world of words..and guttle to my hearts content!! pray it will help me move out of this uneasiness…

So here you get to see the verbivore going verbose.  Im all set and ready to go!

I have this strange “starting problem”. The first hello, first handshake, first comment never comes from me!! I usually just don’t face this while writing or for that matter typing but I think its passing around these days! my starting problem! So priya just helped (kick-started) me by tagging I should say. So let me step into the world of words! By the way verbivore is someone who devours words..not necessarily someone to pen out stuffs! So dnt ya laugh at me for my choice of a name!


RULE #1 People who have been tagged must write their answers on their blogs and replace any question that they dislike with a new question formulated by themselves.

RULE #2 Tag 6 people to do this quiz and they cannot refuse. These people must state who they were tagged by, cannot tag the person whom they were tagged by, and must continue this game by sending it to other people.

So here goes!

  1. If your lover betrayed you, what will your reaction be?
    Would’ve committed suicide !! 😉 That explains Eby’s folly in marrying me! well he propagated non-violence then! Guess the non part fell off after marriage!
  2. If you can have a dream to come true, what would it be?
    To travel around the world!
  3. Whose butt would you like to kick?

      Not priyas..but probably someone related! ;P

4. What would you do with a billion dollars?
Go on a world tour, have the best choclates of the world and if theres anything left give it off! handling money is the biggest pain

5.Will you fall in love with your best friend?
Well I don’t think me and Noori have that kind of taste!!!



6. Which is more blessed, loving someone or being loved by someone?Can one survive without the other?

7. How long do you intend to wait for someone you really love?
Endless. I’ve been trained by my brother to wait for endless hours just to get a ride in his “Royal Enfield”

8.If the person you secretly like is already attached, what would you do?
Would just not dare to! Coz I know how I’ll treat Eby’s secret lover. Or should it be how I’ll kill?

9.If you like to act with someone, who will it be? Your Gf/Bf or an actress/actor?
Hrithik Roshan!!! sigh! I’m out of breathe! Can’t talk anymore ;P

10. What takes you down the fastest?
Conversation with someone above or outside my circle. My blood drains and my heart just rushes to some safe corner beneath the earth and pulls a cover over!

11. How would you see yourself in ten years’ time?
You are asking a lady this! Well 5 years older!

12. What’s your fear?
Befriending someone who doesn’t care for friendship.

13.What kind of person do you think the person who tagged you is?
A pretty, sensible young lady! Now! before you go searching for her – she’s engaged!

14. Would you rather be single and rich or married but poor?
Married and poor – you can’t expect a Libran to stay single!

15.What’s the first thing you do when you wake up?
Pray that I should not see anything worse as soon as I wake up! Dunno why, I always wake up scared to death!

16. Would you give all in a relationship?
Depends on the relationship!! 😉

17. If you fall in love with two people simultaneously, who would you pick?
The one who gives me more chocolates ;P that was how I answered all my relatives questions as to which of my 2 brothers i like better.

18. Would you forgive and forget, no matter how horrible a thing that special someone has done?
Unfortunately yes! Whenever my husband comes up with a long list of atrocities I’ve done against him! I go speechless coz of this damned lack of memory!

19. If you get to go back in time and fall in love all over again, would it still be with the same person? (Original question: What are your three most important expectations in love?)
Yes but I’ll make him buy a bike first! ;P

20. List 6 people to tag:

Only know priya in wordpress..and you can’t tag the one who tagged you right?
