isolated beauty.. 28/12/08

Iceland is the best place for any kind of vacation. The geography itself isolates u from the world around and takes u to new place altogether.(for sure I m talking about the small Icelands here).
It was on our mind for very long time to visit Arnala fort near virar. If u have read the old blog u will know how we tried going but then were not mentally prepared. But this time we were all ready for it. Reached the beach at around 11:00am (one hour lateJ anyways). And then came to the jetty where we had to catch a boat, yes the same one we got scared of . But this time there was no fear at all. We pulled our pants up n jumped in the boat, was good fun to see the boat little empty than last time. 10min more and we were on our destination ‘Iceland’. There was no one waiting for us there neither anyone we knew, but strong fish smell welcomed us with all its love. All of us eat fish so we didn’t mind the smell. Moreover we ended up taking snaps with fish. And making someone taste fish. J so th…

15th - Finally the first day!

Yes yes u are right finally the first day of my office. Reached on time because didn’t want any bad impression on the very first day. Was nicely dressed with formal shirt, n formal shoe so was very happy in a way. But as u know it too much of excitement might just spoil things yeah I agree it does. I actually got down a little early and had to walk down for two signals almost. Was fine though cos I m not that against of walking. Even after that managed to reach on time.
I don’t know whether it’s a good thing or bad, but when I entered the office there were all guys not a single girl. So when I stepped in all of them turned and looked at me. Was kind of weird feeling but still managed to hide it n said a casual good morning n introduced myself. Sat on the computer which was empty n just did something or the other to make myself feel normal.
After sometime mam came and trust me I was never so happy to see some female like I was today. She sounds like a sweet lady lets see. So finally had …

Expect the unexpected :)

Nikhil always says this “expect the unexpected” and follows that when it comes to giving me surprises. Ok I know I know u must be eager to know what surprise he gave me this time. No actually not a surprise but this trip happened all of a sudden. Something went wrong in Jodhpur so had to rush an reach there as soon as possible. So he stayed thr for some days and as always we thought of meeting on his journey back home. So that’s what I m talking about that we meet unexpectedly….
As always I had that BIG smile when we decided to meet. So we meet on 12th, but before I forget I would love to say one thing here that ‘I HATE INDIAN RAILS’ why do they have to make trains run late when we meet for such a small span of time. Yeah train was late this time as well for 45 min L duffer trains. Anyway cant do much about that. So we meet and I forgot all my anger everything n it was all magic of his love in d air the moment I saw him. I always find it magical. N this magic made things little bad for…

Lucky charm :)

I m sure all of u must have become a lucky charm for someone in ur life at least once. So how did u feel being a lucky charm?? Being someone’s lucky charm is a sweet feeling for sure. Yupe!! I became a lucky charm for someone today, my friend “shashi’. I m sure u wanna know why my I calling myself to be his lucky charm. Let me tell u..
I m actually helping him to design the interior of his house. (1st real project !!yeah) so in the morning he came to my place regarding the same thing. I showed him my inputs and ideas. He was very impressed to see the whole design in 3D form. The sense of satisfaction n some more trust about me and work was clearly visible on his face. So had a talk, he gave his inputs, I gave him some advice regarding the quotation and the budget of the project this and that. as both of us had to go out we left together. Me and shashi actually stay in same area just 15min away from each other but on opposite sides. so two of us hardly cross paths n meet. (u will know w…

Lets wake up for ourselves

How old are u 20+, less than 30??All the militants in the recent event are of the same age. I m sure you know what am I talking about the ‘Big terrorist attack on Mumbai’. Yes all of them are of same age and look at them how devoted they are and what level is the devotion, ready to die (even for so called religion love) But what are we doing sitting in front of The TV sets and feeling bad about the injuries and deaths, and being happy for not being one of those. But can you deny that somewhere in the corner of your mind we all have the thought ‘what if I am one of those next time?’. Can you deny the fact that everyday when you leave your house you wonder if you are going to come back or not??. Why?? Why are we living such a scared life? Why are we so numb about the things happening around us? Why are we still so quite? Just because some few people who are ready to give there lives and bomb us every now and then. Come on!! What are we waiting for?? Don’t u think so, its enough now all …

TIME is d boss.

Its been quite some time now that I have been preparing for my viva, making drawings, working on my model, slogging my ass, staying up late nights, cos I had decided that I m gonna do well this time and gonna give everything good. I had vivas on two days one after d other, first day was good both d vivas went well. Second day was more important cos it was design viva the most important subject of architecture. I finished my model one day before. There was just one file which was given to my friend and I was to plot (print) that in the morning cos my friend could not email me last night and I had to wait till I get that email which for some bad reasons came to me in the morning at around 6:30am.on the viva day. I don’t know what should I call it my bad luck or bad stars d machine got stuck and I had to wait for my plot to get done which resulted in me reaching my collage late. You must be thinking right, that I must have given my viva and everything went well cos all my work was done…

its not in the system its in us..

so true!!

The President of India DR. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam 's Speech in Hyderabad . *
Why is the media here so negative?Why are we in India so embarrassed to recognize our own strengths, our achievements? We are such a great nation. We have so many amazing success stories but we refuse to acknowledge them. Why? We are the first in milk production. We are number one in Remote sensing satellites. We are the second largest producer of wheat.We are the second largest producer of rice.Look at Dr. Sudarshan , he has transferred the tribal village into a self-sustaining, self-driving unit. There are millions of such achievements but our media is only obsessed in the bad news and failures and disasters. Iwas in Tel Aviv once and I was reading the Israeli newspaper. It was the dayafter a lot of attacks and bombardments and deaths had taken place. TheHamas had struck. But the front page of the newspaper had the picture of aJewish gentleman who in five years had transformed his desert into an o…

what if ??

Being in architecture I am used to visiting places alone. Going to any place whether crowded or may be barren doesn’t really matter. I have been do dingy slums to big gardens, to big institutes this and that. But today was different, I went to sum place in Andheri, to get some material for my model. It was a small laser printing office, it was kinda inside from the road, tht I actually had to hunt for it. The area where this place is was full of godowns, wooden factories and all. I crossed a small narrow passage (gali I would say) which led to a narrow stairs and there it was on first floor. There were two guys in the office. (u would hardly find any girl in such areas) It was kind of dark cause it was around 7:00pm and the place had no windows at all. I sat there waiting for my work to get done. As u know it empty mind is devils house, one thought came to my mind. What if someone kidnaps me here then rape n kill me. My cells battery was down and no one at my place knew as to …

lonesome day

Wow! Finally I m out of my house. My life has been on a slow track since almost a month now. I had my exams some days back before which I was preparing for my exams so hardly went to college, after which it was diwali vacation. And now I am preparing for my viva which is on 20th. So now u get it right how boring things are at my end for quite some time now. As I m not so domestic I hate to stay at home for very long time I start getting all irritated just sitting at home and all. So decided today that I will go to college just to relax a bit and also had some work in library.

Reached college in the noon. First thing which strike me when I was in train was it’s been a long time I have travelled in train. Frankly speaking that wasn’t a great feeling. College was empty as such cos diwali vacation is still on. So I was searching for someone from friends. Just someone who would have a smile to see me after such a long time. There were few juniors doing their study trip work, but there was n…

diwali week

Hey guys hi once again.
I guess I took a little longer than what I had planned for. I will try to stick to my plans next time. :P So talking about this week it was good week because of diwali everywhere was glitter, all around lots of lamps lots, lots of sweets, and lots of new new things. So diwali was good. The fun part was on the Sunday when I met my collage friends after a real long time. The ‘FAMOUS FIVE’, that’s what I call my group as. Which includes rashmi, ritesh, vidhita, pritish and me. Remember I had told u about my life revolving around few people, yes my collage life revolves around these four cartoons. All my years in architecture have been with these guys. All of them are different and special too. I know I have to introduce each of them individually maybe some other time, would be fun to write about all of them in one go.
So coming back to the Sunday. We went for movie in the morning. Called ‘Fashion’ was a good one Madhur Bhandarkars movie quite realistic. Was good …

my first hello!!

Hey happy diwali to all of u… finally I made 1st entry for my blog on the day of diwali. or I should say for my second blog yeh I know now u will ask me if I have one already why I made a new one, or like some people u will say, manage the first one then make a new one, but the point is my 1st blog is just about my poems ( don’t be surprised but I do write poems sometimes, read it someday n see if I really can) but I wanted some space to share any and every RANDOM thought which comes to my mind so here is my new blog ‘my randomiser’. So how did u like the name? I guess its fine enough.
Now about me, cos I think it’s necessary to introduce myself 1st before u guys get introduced to my writing or I would say chirping. Hmm so what should I say about me,??
I am a simple human being, a simple girl whose life revolves around few people in her life, a girl who likes to write, who loves reading mysteries and fat novels, one who is very passionate about dancing. And lik…
