I didn't need this bit of knowledge (its obvious..isn't it?) neither was I keen on trying to see if it can actually swim. But it did drown and die! My BlackBerry...which I had got last November.
I was talking on the it while in the kitchen and it slipped from my hands and landed in the big bowl of water. Since then it hasn't sputtered back into life yet. I'm still trying to go and get it checked at the service center. As I still have hope that it will survive and it is just in coma!
Its been 2 days since I've been without my BlackBerry. I realized what these drug addicts must feel like in the rehabilitation centers on the first day :P 2nd day I didn't even think about it. Infact life has been kind of peaceful and relaxed since then :)

As I was getting Betu ready he suddenly burst into tears. For few minutes he just wouldn't say anything and kept crying. And then he told me. "Mujhe aapki yaad aayegi." and started to cry again. I hugged him tight and let him cry. I felt such a mix of emotions hearing those words. I felt happy at the realization and enforcement of our bond. At how he is sad to be going away from me for not even 24 hours. But I felt my heart wrench at seeing the pain in his eyes. The pain of not having his mumma around. I had tears welling up but I gathered myself and told him that papa shall be there and so will Dadu-Dadi. I also told him that whenever he feels he is missing me he can just cuddle up with them and he can also speak with me on the phone. And its then that I asked him to now think and tell me if he wants to go or if he wants to stay back with me.
He mulled for a while and then asked me "hum jaldi wapas aayenge?" and I nodded in affirmation. Its then that he agreed to go.
And now when they are gone and am thinking about him my eyes are welling up again. I am also not at all used to be away from Betu. Its probably the third time when he will not be with me at night. When we both won't be sleeping snuggled into each other, with his one leg over me and an arm on my chest and I won't be feeling his warm breath on my face. Sigh!

So on the eve of Karvachauth, we put mehendi. Every year I've managed to go to a nearby place and get it done from the professionals. This year I couldn't manage to do that so I did it at home itself. Rita Bhabhi got me a mehendi cone when she had gone to get her mehendi done.
Betu also gets small motifs done whenever I go for my mehendi. He calls them tattoo :D
Here is the pic of him making a sun motif on my right hand.

When I was almost near my destination, he again stopped at the roadside and the boy got down and started to walk away. He shouted "oye" but the boy didn't hear him. He shouted in a louder voice "Abe oye!" and the boy turned back. Once the boy cam near the autowala gave him a Rs. 5 coin and the boy walked away smiling.
I asked him when we started back if the boy was his son. He replied back smiling "Mera bhanja hai. Uska school hai yahan". (He is my sister's son. His school is here.)
Did you see how with the exchange of basically 2 words and that too one sided so much conversation happened between them? And however hard sounding his voice or words maybe, he sure was a tender hearted guy.

I just rolled my eyes.
And do you call the bank super efficient on receiving the cheque book next day of ordering it or do you call them slow for sending the SMS so late? :D

And it takes you a while to understand what is wrong when you see those wrong spelling red underline under the word. :D

It can be a cool tool but can be dangerous as well. Why dangerous? Because there can be people who can try to 'fake' your profile on those sites by signing up with your user name. Although I know they must be completely vella to be doing that :)
I've extracted the article here. There is one video also available if you go to the article page.
Railway bosses insist their "monkey-man" is an effective way to protect their passengers from the mischievous animals, which are prone to snatch food from travellers and tear seat covers from trains.
The 42-year-old says he has been driven to the unusual profession by poverty, but is convinced that his efforts are helping passengers.
But it is hard to tell who is the more bemused, the passengers, or the remaining monkeys sitting around on roof rafters, munching on bunches of bananas, watching the show below.

So coming back to the tag does it mean what kind of day I would make if I was to be in Weather God's shoes? Wow! Wouldn't it be so nice? Swaying my wand , sprinkling some magic dust and lo and behold I create a brand new day for the people on earth!
Hmm..now let me think about it. I like rain and I like nice cloudy sky with cool winds blowing. And I like the evening sun. So how about creating a day with all these 3 elements put together. WOW! WOW! Just imagining it makes me go WOW!
So let there be little rain in the morning for 2-3 hours. So when we look out of the house the whole world seems crisp and fresh and the plants in their greenest greens and dew drops at the edge of the leaves and on the flower petals.
After the rains lets have a nice cloudy sky with cool breeze blowing. So that when you walk you can feel the cool wind in your hair and you can see the plants and trees swaying with happiness.
And by evening lets have the sun start shining playing hide and seek between the clouds. The kids would be playing in the parks or cycling around.
But but but. The most important thing is I would like to have this kind of a day on a holiday and NOT on a working day at all. Coz if this kind of day happens on a working day I wouldn't be able to enjoy it even one bit! :)
So how do you guys like my kind of day?
Now to tag others. Are you guys game to do it? Suma, Asha and BombayGirl. If yes, lets hear from you.
