goosfraba and some milk

Couple of days ago I was rectifying the Palak Paneer our cook had made whilst wearing a tshirt that said "Fight for your right to party".

Life and irony go hand in hand. 

Life took a sharp turn when I got married. Suddenly I am a new person living a totally new life. Along  with K, I have also married the whole house and a very big gujarati kitchen.

The kitchen is a parallel universe where a lot of instances occur. It is literally a never ending zone of too many vegetables and daal. Recently in our Mehta kitchen my Mil successfully managed to create milk out of drumsticks and peanuts. (Weird, I know)

If you are wondering why we are trying to create milk, its a very long story. Any ways if milk can be made in our kitchen, then anything can happen there.

So moving on from milk, I am right now a very happy person.

The reason being that I now have my own workspace in Bandra. But not only that, the reason I am so happy is because I share my workspace with my father! There is too much joy in seeing your Dad everyday at work, especially after marriage.

Marriage makes you realise a lot of things. What I have realised the most after marriage is how much I love my family and how crazily I miss my home. This actually has made me more irritable and short tempered as a person. (Sorry K)..tiny incidents can make you a burning hot volcano ready to spit out all the lava! Little bit of traffic, vegetable shopping, the thought of playing monopoly and even your alarm clock can make you want to kill somebody. (K feels I will kill him one day, but I will try not to)

I used to be so patient in traffic, peacefully enjoying my music. But today when I was stuck at Dadar on my way to Bandra I completely lost my cool. 
I ranted to my taxi driver, my mom (twice) and ofcourse K (thrice).  Please never ever use the Tulsi Pipe road in your life. Always take Sealink even if you don"t need it.

K has a new tactic to calm me down. He has now started chanting the word "Goosfraba- goosfraba"

Dont ask why but only he can cheer me up! Those words apart from a calming effect can make me laugh. (Try it only if your a funny husband/weird wife)

Do google Goosfraba! 

Any ways, I have lots of work to do on my new desk! Plus a very heavy gujju lunch to eat! 
Waiting for 4.30pm! Want to know why? I am going to have tea with Dad along with chips, chocolates and strawberries!


ps- More rantings in the next post!

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…

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…
