squishy yoyo's...

just when i was finally thinking that "maybe, just maybe, my life is falling into some sort of order" i am once again reminded of how instantaneous life is in reality and exactly how much i thrive on my capacity to adapt and go along with the flow.

but first and foremost i have a confession. i have been bad! the reasons, i hold back...but let it suffice to be know that i have been not up to the standards of my best behavior (
& i blame Saad for the me lee that we have caused & for the moral dilemma that we have put Fahad in to. :)

so this weekend was sort of planned as a quite little rendezvouses with my cousin Anuradha, Milan (who flew in especially from Mumbai for the occasion) and my uncle and aunt at Mount Abu for her 25th birthday. Mt Abu is this lovely little hill town situated around about a 5 hour drive from Ahmadabad. a picture perfect destination that was a much welcome escape from the heat and the bustle of Baroda and Ahmadabad. not that we stayed too long, for we must have been there for a maximum of 30 hours or something, but they were just what we all needed. in any case, the pictures are up on the photo blog for everyone's viewing pleasure.

secondly, i am once again engaged in a house hunt. this time around we are all looking for a place for Anindita who got so unceremoniously told to leave her wonderful house just cause the owners were incapable/ unwilling to rent out their place to someone from the Fine Arts Faculty after the aftermath of the protests. its a long story on how they (i.e. the fundamentalist organizations) are creating problems for the students and the supporters of the liberal cause in Baroda. but that is a matter unto itself.

for now we are looking for a house! and if nothing works out, Ani can always move in with me! (HURRAH!! a certain part of me wishes that so bad!!) :)

later then amigos!

tch tch...
the apartment is still not as clean as i want it to be. but its getting there. in a few days, yes just give me a week more, and it will be perfect. but until then let's put my somewhat germaphobic thingy on the side and talk about other things.
for one i like my new roommates. Luke and Nibha. man, just when you thought that life would get a bit saner and fall into a rhythm everything goes for a toss with roommates like them. tossed straight out of the seventh floor window. and add to that the fact that Kareena (Yeeeoooooooooooooooooowwwwl!! *doing the bad wolf yeowl*) is moving into the opposite apartment; damn!! ;)
ah well, life has it's moments!
so finally the strike and the protest has been called off. the Governor has appointed a seperate committee to investigate the actions of the Vice Chancellor of MSU in the wake of the Chandramohan incident. so the Fine Arts faculty has finally begun academic activities after a month of strikes and protests led by the students. external interference, especially by the so called moral police and the self appointed religious fundamentalists is totally out of order in an educational institution such as the MSU. we students believe in that, and we stood up for that. and now our voice has been heard. special kudos to the students of the Fine Arts faculty! Anindita, Baba, Samudra, Kaustabh, Goba, Luke, Nibha, Raj, Mrugen and everyone else...great going guys!
awight! now i needs be pushing off! Kaz just got to town last night. a nice little surprise trip just for Saad. the look on that idiot's face was worth a million $'s... lol!! now i need to go see those two fools and also take them off poor Anindita's hands. they would have driven her nuts by now. then some bank work...and the back to the apartment for project clean!
later folks! shall try and keep posting at regular intervals...
ps: Ghosty, i too feel that white best describes me in this blog! so am gonna stick to it! anyways, thanks for suggesting.

while in Mumbai...

so this time around circumstances took me to Mumbai...

considering the fact that it was Anu's engagement ceremony and also Bharti masi and Manish masa's 25th wedding anniversary, it was quite inevitable that i be there. after all, one cannot miss out on a really really big party has that the style and flavor so distinct to my family.
hell yeah, we are one big Indian family that is as diversely spread as India itself, but we also know how to set the roof on fire and party like there's no tomorrow


anyways, i have a train to catch tonight that shall take me back to Baroda and my apartment and project 'clean-till-you-drop-dead-or-until-the apartment-is-as-good-as-new'. but before i leave, here's some pics from the party!


Mithu, me and Rushku

Anu didi, Mithila, Rhythm didi and Ruju didi

moi, Rhythm and Rujuta.

Anuradha and Milan: the ring ceremony

(0k ok ... i tried uploading all the pics..but they just wouldn't happen quick enough. and i don't have the patience to sit here all day...i need some chocolate milkshake and i need to make sure that my sisters behave themselves! sheesh! looking at the way they are acting right now one wouldn't believe that one's a dentist and the other is one her way to becoming a doctor!!)


ps: despite the fact that i love my current template, i was considering a complete overhaul of my blog and the way it looks...should i or shouldn't i??
