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 happening or how bad Trump is. But well I am still reading the updates. 

You know why this forceful app downloading has happened? Unfortunately I have too much information about the glamour industry. I know all about movies, celebrities, serials and each and every gossip. (You Guys are free to judge me but I have a very weird affinity for that world)

When we were out, I saw a big hoarding of some TV actress and I instantly knew the name of the new serial that she is starring in. I exclaimed, "hey! She is starring in Jis Des main hai mera piya or dil, I think".

That's it.
 K was utterly appalled by my what he says "unnecessary knowledge"  and decided I need a news app as soon as possible in my phone. Also just to be clear, I DO NOT watch any of this crap. I know it is crap, it's just I love knowing every detail of this crap.  

Oh and one more thing, this so called news app just gave me the latest news that Dwayne Johnson popularly known as "The Rock" is voted the sexiest man alive on People's magazine. So basically even news apps considers the above as "important" news. 

It's a very lazy hot afternoon and now I have to go off for my acupressure therapy.  I have exactly two hundred rupees in my wallet (my last few notes) which are so very valuable to me right now and sadly I will have to spend them on my therapy. Thus by evening I am going to be literally penniless but what can I do. 

I am a little angry at Modi, just a little. But I will just eat my mint chocolate and get back to my life.

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…
