Alright, I over reacted.

Well like I said I will write when I am back from the tooth extraction surgery, so here I am with cotton stuffed in my mouth, listening to Empire State of mind by Alicia Keys. The first thing that I will say here is that I am the biggest drama-queen ever. All this stress and tension, for what? The extraction did not hurt at all.
I have been so tensed last few days, I couldn't watch tv, study or even listen to music. Today whole day I was worried sick thinking about the surgery. I would think about the injections, the tugging and what not, and suddenly scream out in the room. I cried at the clinic, but then they had a special dentist arranged for me who is very good at giving injections. So while she injected me, the whole time the helper with her held my hand. Till date no dentist has ever been so kind and sweet to me. The helper held my hand, the dentist put on music for me and spoke to me the whole time. The injections hurt a little but I could bear them, it wasn't as bad as I thought. Then I was taken to the surgeon. He told me it wont take long, hardly fifteen minutes as long as I was relaxed. While he was using God knows what weird tools, the dentist who injected me was with me holding my hand.
Soon in hardly one minute he pulled out my tooth, in a jiffy. It did not even take two minutes. I was shocked because I wondered how could it be completely painless. Thats so abnormal. It was suppose to hurt (mind you I am not complaining). Anyway finally I was done, in minutes. They all were laughing at me and laughed more when I said I study psychology. So now I am done, will eat ice cream in a bit. I have to have pain killers and they said it may hurt later but it's ok. I think I can handle it. So now one fear is conquered, I am not scared of dentist's anymore. Guess I judged them too fast, they are not that bad. The ones I got today were the best, supportive, kind, understanding and patient. So God, since I promised you, one coconut coming your way in a few days! :)

Of Modi's and mints...

"Get cash" said my Beautician.

From where, the sky? I retorted angrily. 

Cash has become a huge problem right now. Modi's move is great but it has affected the common man's life very badly. Can you believe it, tomorrow I have an appointment with my beautician and for a meagre amount I have to shell out a cheque since I do not have any cash on me right now. 

I want to go to Pune to visit my Grand Mom and sadly I have no money to pay for the taxi. I doubt that particular fellow whom we contact takes any card payment. So basically we all are stuck. 

Moving on to other issues that I go through...

K has downloaded an app called "In shorts" or something like that in my phone. I am suppose to compulsorily read and study it. Why? K feels I have no idea what is happening in the world and I should know the basics. 

To be honest, he is right. I really don't have that much knowledge about the current happenings plus I truly do not care about "news", what is hap…

Because Mommy hates my eyebrows......

I hate this weather. It's all wet and weird. I am so surprised at myself for nearly finishing my commissions for September. Alongside I even managed to watch two movies. I had decided to watch them only on the completion of my work as a "treat", but well I just cannot say no to a movie night with K. Actually I cannot say no to anyone when it comes to watching a movie. So I ended up watching Freaky Ali which sucked. And Pink which did not suck at all. What a movie!

I called the "Mother" to discuss Pink and the seriousness it showcased about the way women are judged in the Indian society. After ranting for a couple of minutes about how we are perceived and shackled with responsibilities and judgements, she replies -
 "Have you done your eyebrows?"

Now my eyebrows are currently a crisis for my Mother. The fact that her daughter has disregarded the importance of physical maintenance is shocking for her. Since I have been piled this month with maddening w…

To the 2016 that was and a 2017 that will be...

Happy New Year Peeps! *sneezes hard*

I just returned from a fabulous seven day holiday and now I am feeling the, to quote my friend R - "Holiday withdrawal symptoms". 
So for me the symptoms are mild melancholy and a viral infection. 
The year 2016 has just gone by too fast. Like literally too fast. It was a year of love, family, travel, art along with loss, hurt and pain. It was a bittersweet year for me. During Gudi Padwa which is a Maharashtrian New Year, there is a famous tradition that we follow. We never did that, well since we have never been a traditional family. Father and Mother have been free birds always and their need for flying free has rubbed on to us. The tradition was to eat a mixture of neem leaves and jaggery. Of course I am sure it must have tasted disgusting but it had a symbolic reference to it. It meant that life would always be a mixture of bitterness and sweetness. We have to hope for the sweet but also accept and appreciate the bitter. We have to accep…
