Now, I know that the feminist out there would have my neck for this statement, but for the longest period of my life, I have simply shuddered to the idea of hanging out with women, girls, aunties – basically any form of the female species.

The reason were simple when I was a teenager: I was too much of a tom boy to hang out with a crowd, whose main concern was shoes, boys, shopping, clothes, boys, dieting, dieting, boys, shopping, jewelry, makeup, shopping, dieting, etc.

For me the topic of interest were politics, religion, international happenings, sports, actually participating in sports, books, etc. My favorite hangout was British Council. Guys, I found more or less, did offer me that variety of topics to talk to them about.

More importantly, the way I had lived my life (and still do) was more or less like a guy.. I am the oldest of my parent’s two daughter and in this regard, from an early age, I started sharing some of the responsibilities with my family. I would run errands. go to the shops, etc, things which girls hardly ever did.  Continue reading

Let me introduce you to…

Ladies and gentlemen, let me take this opportunity today to introduce you to my brand new first ever laptop. I have wanted one for a while, and I am glad that I was finally able to get one with almost all of it my own money, I am still getting used to it and the keys and it hasn’t been that easy.

I am still exploring it even, the new features and all and honestly its exciting. But I am literally treating it like a brand new baby.. and in many ways it is one for me. I sincerely hope that the two of us get along fine for as long as possible, and I sincerely hope that this means that I write much more from now on 🙂

Things I keep learning about myself

See every single day is a new experience for me…. You see I am wonderful joy ride, and since I am so interesting there is always something new about me that I keep discovering …..Note to the world: I am not a self absorbed narcissist!

So here is a list of things that I can actually recall about myself at the moment and is now on display:

  1. I hate to wait: I have always hated this.. since as long as I can remember! I hate waiting for a car to come if I am free early, I hate waiting for the bus to come, for the person who is suppose to pick me to finally show up, for something exciting to happen, for a plan to finalize for a get together, or a secret finally to be revealed, for things to take their due course….. Anything and everything that could possibly come in this category!  I simply hate waiting!
  2. I hate ice-creams: This has been a pretty recent change in me. I have just stopped liking ice-creams! I hate them now! And I even hate it further when people push you to have it or give you that “How – in-the-world-is-something-like-this-possible! ”
  3. I love animals, as long as they don’t come close/try to jump/rub themselves around my legs:This is a phenomenon restricted to animals that I have not become comfortable with, which

    Well, I couldn't find a better image to suit this post!

    basically means that I can touch their fur and all, but they are not allowed to come, which basically means that it includes all animals excluding my turtle.

  4. I get scared of a particular task that I do after a long time:Take an example of this! I sat on a plane after a long time, and I was scared shit. Every jerk of the plane was taken as a way to validate my thought that this plane will crash, even after we hit the runway, I was sure that at least the tyre would burst! But on the return flight, I was so so chilled! No tensions nothing! And the other day when I took the pedestrian bridge, I was sure one of the steel plates would fall off, although I have taken a pedestrian bridge a gazillion times! But on the way back I wasn’t!
  5. I really don’t care much for taking a shower:Ya, I am lazy! So I might just skip it for a day or two!  Continue reading
