Mother in laws

So, the subject of today's discussion is going be.. ahem.. MILs. Are they really like those EK serial type women? Well to be honest I always though those were so delusional and unreal but listening to some friends of mine and their stories.. phew.. I have changed my mind and I really thank my stars that I have been lucky to have a really nice mother in law. Although I don't think I am the best daughter in law around..

Listening to some crazy stories of mental harrassment, I wonder what makes us independent women still not willing to speak out, to go against what is wrong. And what makes these Indian men (maybe not all, but really so many of them) act like their parents can do/say no wrong. Will this ever change? 

10 years..

I went to the first post made on this blog in 2005 and started reading. It felt so nice to read and relive those days.. those carefree days.. and my posts reflected those times.. Im so glad I used to write. I wish I could (would?) do that even now. It's like archiving a part of your world virtually so that you can get back to it whenever you can..

10 years it has been.. how easily I used to write back then. How much I had to say on different things, about myself, about the world... Now all that time goes in liking photos and posts on facebook..

I'm making no promises but I do feel inspired to write again..

Sorry for the inconvenience

"..Sorry for the inconvenience Ms. Neha.. but ..
Sorry for the inconvenience... but please..
Sorry for the inconvenience..
thankyou
Sorry for the inconvenience
Bbye
Sorry for the inconvenience.."

I called up my mobile service provider's customer care for some problem.. and all I could hear in a span of 2 minutes was 'sorry for the inconvenience' atleast 15 times..lol.. looks like thats the only thing they learnt in training.. and if his saying 'sorry for the inconvenience' before every sentence wasnt so funny I would've been really bugged.. instead of trying to stop myself from laughing coz they had no idea of what to do with my inconvenience :)

horrible horrible IVR menus they have.. took me 5 min just to reach the customer care guy.. and just then the network decided to give up on me.. so i had to spend another 10 min before I could reach a human voice again..

10 years since I left school! wow.. that seems like a long time.. I suddenly feel so old :-| I wanna go back to being a kid and having all the fun that i didnt have.. Kids these days have so much more freedom.. they have so much more knowledge and awareness and they're so much more street smart.. it may be good in a way.. but they will never have that innocence.. I think our generation was the last to be the ignorant innocent generation.. internet shall ensure that the future generations are all smart and enlightened :)

I saw kaminey on the weekend. Loved it. I love the songs of the movie.. they have ben playing on my car stereo non stop for the past 2 weeks atleast.

Yesterday a traffic policeman caught 2 bikers jumping a red light, stopped them in the middle of the road. When they tried to run off, he took the bike keys and went aside..lol.. thats the only way people here can learn some rules i think.

Feeling Nostalgic :)

Suddenly feeling a little low today.. going down the memory lane.. looking at old pictures.. and i see people who are not there anymore.. they were just here sometime back.. where did they suddenly go.. it all seems like just yesterday.. yet its so far back in time..

"Aaja ki one way hai yeh zindagi ki ghadi ek hi chance hai.."

"Cause it's a bittersweet symphony this life
Trying to make ends meet, you're a slave to the money then you die..."

Two lines that are stuck in my head ever since i listened to these songs in the evening..
