School days #2

Hello everyone!!

Hope you all are doing well! πŸ™‚

In these short posts called school days, I will be sharing some of my memories which I’m sure you all will find very relatable.

Words are not enough to describe these memories or the feelings attached to them. We all miss those days and hence I decided to start the school days series to renew those evergreen memories. Welcome to post #2 hope you enjoy it πŸ™‚

I hope this brings a smile on your face:

This is not a challenge but just an attempt to relive those good old days.

Looking forward to your response. πŸ™‚

Thank you! πŸ™‚

12 things that make me different challenge!!

Thanks to Aeshi Jain of Tokens of Expression for nominating me for this challenge.# 12 Things that make me different. Her blog is wonderful. Do visit it for some amazing work!! Here’s the link https://wp.me/p5ynXM-6K

Its goal is to embrace the qualities that make us unique. Self love is really important, so is self-appreciation. Sometimes you can surprise yourself when you sit down to make such a list!

Be it weird or funny or serious, just anything as long as you’re not ashamed to put it out there.

Here’s all that you have to do:-

Screen Shot 2018-04-21 at 10.39.48 PM.png

  1. Mention if you were nominated by someone or decided to take up the challenge on your own. If nominated provide a link to the blog which nominated you.
  2. Write your own list of twelve things that make you different and proud (and odd maybe?!!)
  3. On your post, put a link to the original post here. This is where the challenge starts from
  4. Use the hash tag #12ThingsThatMakeMeDifferent
  5. Be sure to write these five rules on your post. Including the note.

Note: Nominations are completely optional. If you want to nominate anyone specifically, feel free to tag them and inform them. The purpose is to spread the message. I really, really do encourage nominations, thats surely a better way to promote and let people know. If you choose to nominate, please tag at least three. But keeping in mind the discomfort many bloggers have about the same, there’s no pressure πŸ™‚

(Please don’t wait to be nominated if the idea appeals to you. There’s no judging, just post your link in this post’s comments so that I can read yours)

So, wanna know 12 things about me?? Here they are:

  1. I hate cheaters. If someone insults me, teases me or even ill-treats me, I may forgive them, but if someone breaks my trust, I don’t know what I might do…!!!
  2. I don’t like quarrelling. When my friends are angry, I sometimes apologize even if its not my mistake. Just end the quarrel, sort out things, yaar!!!!
  3. I love singing and acting.
  4. I am a bit over sensitive… I am easily hurt and could end up crying at night over a petty issue.
  5. I think a lot!!
  6. I am an emotional fool! I remember giving away all my pocket money to a stranger who said he needed help for his child’s operation…..
  7. Before going to bed at night, I spend almost 10 minutes praying, telling God everything I have done that day, my wishes, my regrets, confessing everything in front of Him and seeking forgiveness.
  8. I talk to myself sometimes, especially when I am depressed or frustrated.
  9. I am a perfectionist! I want my work to be perfect and put in all my efforts for the same!!
  10. I like hanging out with friends but till date I have never done that. I call them, chat with them but I don’t attend late night parties, neither do I go to the disco or pubs.
  11. I am a talkative girl and I like surprises. I was a studious girl at school and was not into bunking classes, but I did bunk some classes with the permission of the teacher concerned!!! “Sir, actually I need to make arrangements for this function.” “Ma’am, actually I need to practise for tomorrow’s competition. I’ve studied this chapter and I’ll manage the notes. May I please go??” “Sir actually, I need to prepare my speech for tomorrow. May I go to the library? May I take him/her? No, actually I need help.. πŸ˜›” Got it how I skipped classes, but this isn’t bunking!! Though on the pretext of preparations, we sometimes spent the period hanging around with friends, having fun and loitering around the school campus!! πŸ˜› But actually, the main reason was that our teachers were so supportive and so friendly. They trusted me and they knew that I wouldn’t compromise with my studies. Plus, they believed that students ought to enjoy sometimes. If some teacher by chance, saw us, we’d always manage the situation. Even the teacher would join us sometimes and none of them ever complained!! πŸ˜€ They were more of friends!! I just love them! Miss u teachers πŸ™‚ Check my post “3 days 3 quotes, Day- 1” for more elaboration on this topic. But I just hope my Principal doesn’t come across this post!! πŸ˜› πŸ˜€
  12. I like appreciation and praises but I don’t appreciate excessive flirting! I’ll elaborate on this in one of my posts.

So these are some random facts about me. Thanks for reading!

My belief is be proud of your uniqueness. I may improve my weaknesses, correct my faults but I am not going to change for anyone. Accept me as I am, if you can or you are free to go away!!! πŸ˜€

Have a nice day πŸ™‚

Wedding trends!!!

Hi dear bloggers!!

In India, the wedding season is temporarily over but its gonna be back soon.

Actually, I went shopping today and I was captivated by the beautiful wedding outfits put on display.

Obviously, its a long time before I get married!! And none of my friends are going to be married now. So, I had no reason for buying one, but those outfits were just fabulous. I think I spent almost an hour or so, admiring those outfits!!

So, today I decided to do something different. Let’s talk about fashion today, specifically about wedding outfits!!

  • Western wear

These simple yet pretty gowns with intricate designs can win anyone’s heart!! There were special cotton and linen gowns with netted coverings specially designed for summer, apart from the velvet and silk ones.

Apart from the traditional white gowns, there were gowns of different colours specially of light shades like pink, azure, peach and yellow.

The floral gowns of vivid hues were the cherry on the cake. They always seem to be trending!!

  • Now, “Indian” wear!!

Indian weddings are a combination of cultures, colours and varieties. There are many rituals which make a wedding memorable.

The authentic traditional saree with minimum jewellery. The embroidered Patola blouse matches the green silk saree, and the beaded necklace and earrings with the simple yet authentic nosering add to its beauty.

This is the traditional Himachali wedding outfit, vibrant and gorgeous, with golden embroidery on green silk fabric. It is sometimes seen in the Muslim culture as well. The heavy bangles with the mehendi (dye) enhances the beauty.

The traditional, ethnic dress of the Manipuris. The people of Northeast look beautiful in this wedding outfit. The lehenga with the ethnic designs along with the tiara, adore the bride.

The most common yet the most beautiful style. Red chiffon or jaree ki saree with gold jewellery and the red chunri steals the show. Even beaded necklaces and pearl ornaments look very fashionable.

So, I guess now you are into the festive mood!!! Wedding season is a wonderful time in terms of love, ceremony, fun & frolic, reunion with family and friends, delicious savouries and desserts, elegant arrangements, a sacred relation and of course FASHION!!! Not only the wedding outfits of the bride and the groom but even the trendy dresses of the guests are just awesome!!!

Hope you enjoyed it.

See you soon in another post. Thank you for reading!!

Be happy, be fashionable! πŸ™‚

The Promise Of Love

My paintings – my old memories πŸ™‚

She was lonely and somewhat lost,

Broken deep down inside,

She wanted a companion, a friend,

Nothing more, to make a new start…….

With joyous surprise and thrill she beams,

She found the man of her dreams!!

Gentle, caring, trusting and understanding,

Into her life he came,

With the promise of fulfilment and happiness,

Things were no longer the same.

His presence around was a dream come true,

She’d never imagined a warmth of this hue!

Such emotions flowed through her,

Which she never knew she would feel,

Beauty, tenderness, faith and hope,

Her broken heart did heal…

Her secret prayers were answered,

And she had now decided,

Circumstances, whatever they may be,

Sorrows, joys or a difficulty,

She’d walk with him in every clime,

Right through to the end of time….!!!

PS: This is the story of my cousin sister and I had written this poem for her on her wedding day. I blogged it today, on her 2nd marriage anniversary, to pray that their relationship is strong and to wish them peace and joy!!!

Thanks for reading πŸ™‚

Mothers’ Day :-)

Maa aapka pyaar, aapka saath,

Na chuka saku, woh ehsaan hai….

Aapke bina jee nahi sakti,

Aap mere liye vardaan hai…

Aapki aankho mein na aansu aane dungi,

Ye meri jubaan hai…

Maa ke pyaar ko jo naa samjhe,

Woh sabse bada beimaan hai

Nazaara jo jaan se pyaara hai

Woh aapki muskaan hai…

Shabdo mein nahi bayaan kar sakti,

Aapki khubiyaan to vistrit aasman hai…

Meri khushi ke liye sabkuch tyaag kar diya,

Maa, aap sachmuch mahaan hai…

Jivan mein kuch bhi ban jaaun Maa,

Magar aapse hi meri pehchaan hai…

Maa aapki ichchha, aapki khushi

Mere liye ek farmaan hai…

Maa, aap har mod par saath hai

Iss liye har mushkil aasan hai…

Aapko duniya ki har khushi dena,

Mera iklouta armaan hai…

Aapka aashirwaad mere sir par hai,

Iss liye khuda bhi meherbaan hai…

Maa, aapko gar kuch de saku,

To woh sirf pyaar aur samman hai…

Maa, aapke liye ek din nahi,

Saari jindagi kurbaan hai…..

Maa, aaj tak kabhi aapse ye kaha nahi,

Par aapke jassbe ko salaam hai!!!

Matri seva Jo karta hai,

Wohi sachcha insaan hai,

Kyunki Maa ke roop mein utre,

Iss dharti par swayam bhagwan hai……

Maa I love you… πŸ™‚

The School Stage

On all those regular, routine days,

The school stage looks lifeless in its shades of greys.

But soon enough there are days of celebrations,

And the stage bursts forth into colourful manifestations

As we enter the school on those special event days,

Excitement accompanies us on our ways.

There are expectations about the order of the day,

And the school stage awakens, a relevant message to convey.

Seeing the school stage so bright makes us speechless,

Priceless moments captured to forever become timeless.

On every special event, the stage appears attractive,

The backdrop conveys the message so appropriate and impressive.

The hard work of the juniors

The aesthetics of the seniors.

And lo! Before us is displayed,

A resplendent backdrop, never to fade!

On every gala event, be it Graduation or Parents’ Night

The stage rises to the occasion decked up like a bride!

It takes us all on a wonderful fantasy ride,

The feeling of awe within us, we simply cannot hide!

There are decorations of colourful ribbons and festoons,

That colourful, creative backdrop! It sends us into swoons.

Performances of the children breathe magic into it,

Or how else for any occasion does it become fit?

Though the stage has its own unique life story,

Its the performances undoubtedly who add to its glory!

It’s heart beats loud and it’s face cheerfully glows,

As it beckons the eager students to happily put up their shows!!

What People Turn Into in Exam Season…

This was originally posted by Severus Snape. Its totally relatable πŸ™‚

Always

Now that exams are in the air, and even if it sounds all clichΓ©, I can’t help notice what my familiar, fun loving, chai guzzling, samosa eating peers, my bandar log friends included, have turned into from my convenient perch under the tamarind tree in college. And some of them are pretty comical to be sure. No wonder YouTubers have potshots at such characters all the time. So here are some of the kinds of beasts we, in a limited sample space of people like me who prefer the space outside the canteen, under the tamarind and banyan trees included, to study for our exams, turn into during exam season:

  1. ThePessimists.

Pessimists are the people who work hard, really hard, and still think they’re gonna fail. Contrary to their beliefs, these pessimists manage to score more than us common mortals. So, consider a typical exam day. We get to…
