We no need doctor.

I have been very sick for the past three days. Had a crazy party with my family which then led to a crazy body system resulting in stomach aches, nausea, dizziness constant puking (gross I know) and well along with it, my mood swings. Been on meds, "home" food and lot of liquids (non-alcoholic of course). Anyway point is I saw two awesome movies last two days. Being sick has certain good consequences, I get to rest all day, watch good movies and most importantly, lot of love from mom. So, first I saw The Vow. Amazing, awesome, sweet, heart warming, basically I want to use all the mushy cute words I know to describe this movie. Rachel McAdams and Channin Tatum, act in this love story. The wife loses her memory in an accident, and her husband has to win her heart back and make her fall in love with him all over again.
This movie somehow managed to cure my sickness and made me feel better again. Guess I am just a sucker for love stories even though I dont believe in love. The other movie I saw was Kahaani. Vidya Balan again managed to stun people with her performance and a compact script. The way Kolkata is shown, the background scores, the music, direction, etc everything was superb. I enjoyed every minute of my movie, only problem was that my brain kind off froze as the AC was right over my head, actually this happened to Mom also but she was too engrossed in her caramel popcorn.
Hence two movies down, here I am all cured from my illness and updating my blog. Boards are up in few days and I need to start studying. I swear I will start tomorrow, I swear swear swear.
Oh!! and I am making chocolate brownies tomorrow, another "Laura in the kitchen" recipe. I forgot to update that my cake was decent. That's the word Dad used so I am guessing it was ok. He still feels I need to practice to perfect it, so hence brownies tomorrow, which is kind off like cake so well, same thing. I dont want to keep making vanilla sponge again and again.
Ok then, hope the brownies are good, and pray that I study.
Peace. :)


  1. Tanvi, I am sure the cake turned out to be amazing and your dad said that you need practice so that you continue to bake cakes and brownies every day and he gets to eat them. I would have done the same if I were in his place .:P - Tanmay

  2. hahahahaahaha....well if u look at it that way then guess ur right! :D

"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…
