Eloping and decks of cards.

It's 10:30 pm and the Mehta household of 15 members have met to play cards. We all play a game called "kadi di Rani" which I just don't seem to understand. This game always goes over my head and even  after countless explanations I just can't play it. So I watch my complete family fight and scream since losing in cards is the biggest pain ever endured. I watch them laugh and cry while I sit by like an oddball and Snapchat away.

So yes. I am the oddball in the family and very proud to be. While they play, I blog or doodle. Or I just yawn since I am not a fan of playing cards. I don't mind playing for like an hour. But Mehta household need a good five hour session of card playing minimum!

On a completely different note today morning I attended the wedding of a friend. It was special. Why? Because she had eloped and was getting married. It was a Hindu Muslim case and pretty serious. So they ran away, got married and invited all friends to the court. Crazy. And I wish them all the best as they are so happy and in love and deserve to be together always no matter what society or parents say.

That's all on cards and eloping front.

On the home front I am still as busy as hell. No point going into that, I am just happy to find some time to blog. I really want to draw but even twenty four hours in a day don't seem enough. Six months of marriage have whizzed by in routine and family. I am sure you all agree that time seems to run post marriage.

Tomorrow I am going for Angry Birds movie. K and I are such movie buffs. I guess we watch at least two movies a week at the theater. But Sunday is something special. Will blog about our plans for Sunday soon!

That's all for now. Will get back to watching these guys play cards.

"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…
