In my purse...

Listening to Shape of you by Ed Sheeran while cooking Chole. Love this song and it's giving me good company whilst I quickly wrap up my homely chores. 

Today I will not rant about what all I am doing or how swamped I am in random crap, instead today I thought, let me dedicate a post to my purse. 

Now a woman's purse and what it contains truly tells you something about her. The contents of a woman's purse is always unique and you will never find another woman who has the same stuff as you. Her purse is her companion, stuffed with things that can keep her alive for a few days in case there is an apocalypse or a zombie attack. 

So here's a peek into my big fat purse. 

1- Three strips of Crocin and Pudin Hara. (I am not kidding) I am always having some sort of pain. If not head and back, I will suddenly have leg pain or some other random body part. So I just stock them up.

2- Countless hand written notes. Wherever I go, I write notes. I pick up a pen and start writing randomly on any surface I find, like tissues or coasters. They are all in my purse right now. 

3- Chocolates. Even though I am on a diet (seriously, I swear), I keep few chocolates handy just in case. Like what if my sugar drops and all. (It happens!)

4- Bills and receipts. I am too bored to clean my purse and throw them out. So it just keeps piling up.

5- Numerous rubber bands and clips. Because you just can't have enough of them and you always end up losing them. 

6- Sauf packets. You know the ones you get in restaurants. I collect them and keep them in my purse. (Weird, I know) But in case of any emergency I will at least have something to eat. 

7- Acupressure needles. Yes, when I was doing therapy, they would stick me with needles. Now I don't go but still keep the needles with me.  Good to use them if I want to attack someone, or poke K.

8- Rocks and shells. I collect mini trinkets wherever I go. For me all these little moments contain a lot of joy and have a sentimental value. So I collect rocks, shells, drink stirrers, coasters, tickets etc because memories are very special. Plus I have two to three rocks in my purse now and it's good to throw at someone too.

That's all from my purse.

What all is in yours?

"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…
