So much to say.

Satish is on his way back from work. We speak to each other most of the days. Either he calls or I do. (yeah, we still call each other three or four times a day. We're mushy like that :) )

Actual conversations that happen:

Me: 'Baby-- you know what ....Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah, and then you know what happened, blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah'

Satish; 'Okay '

Me: And you know what baby,  blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah and blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah. Isn't that great ?'

Satish: Hmmm

Me: ' And I forgot to tell you, blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah and blah blah. So what do you feel?'

Satish: I don't know.

Me: (a bit indignant by now) : What do you mean you don't know? You must be feeling something right?

Satish: I really don't know.

I bet half the married people can relate to the above. Leave me a comment if  conversation between you and your spouse goes like this :) I really want to know if this is a universal phenomenon or something unique to us.

And let me run now---he just walked in and I have so much to tell him :)

  1. But in his head nothing is wrong. Men are just made like that.

  2. ha starts happening after a year or two after marriage...

  3. yeah whenever i have something interesting to share with hubby he nods yes and no...Warned him to speak full sentence else i would stop sharing things with him

  4. Ditto here! Shikha Kaushal in the comment above is lucky. At least she gets sentences now. Most of the arguments I have are about this. :(

  5. You said, half the people...
    Why only half?

    - Prabhakar / Indian Top Blogs

  6. So what shall i comment now.. you know what ....Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah

  7. Sometimes it is like that,but not always.

  8. Hahahaha, this is absolutely true. To a big extent, men don't vocalise their thoughts as much as women, and definitely don't let minor or non-essential things affect them. So, yes, been there living this!

  9. I've seen my parents talk and my aunt and uncle's also....but the thing I found between them was two-way communication...and sometimes one also ;) hehe But one or the other way both are cute to listen to...

Life is so unpredictable. Stop judging! #Sridevi

This morning I woke up to the news of the legendary Sridevi, being no more at 54. I have grown up watching her movies. She is a tremendously talented actor.

I have been reading so many write-ups about her. There are whatsapp forwards, blog posts, news reports, status updates and so much more.

What I do not understand is how people comment on her personal life. They have watched her movies, or met her at an event, or know her through 'friends of friends' etc. They talk about how she 'tried to hold on to her beauty', how she went under the scalpel, how she was stressed etc etc.
Everything about her is open game --no matter what the truth is.

I am saddened reading these discussions.

I lost my father to a cardiac arrest. He was healthy,  fit as a fiddle, had none of the age related ailments and looked so much younger for his years. He had twice the energy of someone half his age. Even on the day he passed away, he had gone for his usual 6 km walk. He was just 66.  It was…

Re-store : A delightful little shop in Whitefield, Bangalore.

All of us are guilty, at least to some extent  of hoarding stuff. We hold on to old things--be it clothes, books, utensils, footwear, knick-knacks or some such, that form the minutiae of our daily lives. Many a time these add to the the clutter too. Rare is the home which looks like the above pic.

I am a huge fan of Marie Kondo, and I highly recommend her book The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up  which is more than just a book.

It is an entire philosophy, and a new approach. I read the book back to back, and immediately put into use the methods described in the book. I must tell you how wonderful I felt! I never thought that I could be that organised.

Clearing clutter, and the stuff that you no longer have use for, does release 'blocked energy.' There is no scientific or rational explanation for this. I only know that it works for me. Any Feng Shui practitioner and  loads of Eastern Schools of belief will confirm this.

I always make it a point to give away things I no longe…


Be that man Who looks his woman in the eye when he gets home And says ‘You look beautiful, darling.’ And means it. Because this thing you have going is Sacred
Be that man Who offers his woman a back rub, a glass of wine Or coffee Or simply some time and space Where she can be herself. Because this thing you have going is Sacred

Be that man Who doesn’t make jokes about his woman, behind her back Because she is too precious, too dear Some things you do not joke about Because this thing you have going is Sacred.
Be that man Who would drop everything in a jiffy to be beside her Not because she cannot manage But because you know how much she hates to do it all by herself Tell her she is strong and brave, And hold her hand Because this thing you have going is Sacred ______________________ **************© 2018 Preeti ShenoyFor more poems click here.
