I had never been to a bowling alley before my marriage and it was one of the things that me and my husband had put on the things-to-do-after-marriage list.

We did get a chance to go but it happened only after going to Dubai. The bowling alley was on the 24th floor of a building (hubby said he had never seen a bowling alley that was NOT on the Ground floor)

He told me that he would teach me … so he went first and showed me how to select the ball (go for the lightest he said), how to stand, how to swing the ball and finally how to throw it (taking care that the fingers are out of the holes in the ball when the ball is released from the hand or it will be disastrous).

Looked easy

He hit the pins and some of them fell down. He showed it to me once again and told me that each player got 2 chances to down all the 10 pins. And then he asked me to do it.

I did.

And ….

All the Pins went down on my first ever bowling attempt.

I looked at him … to ask what do I do now in the second chance since none of the pins were standing. He was standing there looking at the fallen pins with his mouth wide open. I was worried that I has done something wrong and all he did was turn to me and ask "Jhooth bolti ho" (You lied).

Well … he then explained that what I had just managed to do was called a 'Strike' and all players aim for a strike but it's not so easy and requires quite a lot of practice! Now I understood his expression and open mouth.

Well … It was a pretty unique experience for me … it was something like a hole-in-one shot of Golf (as described by my hubby)

The rest of the evening was fine. I managed a couple of more strikes while he struggled and managed none J

Busy Busy and Sad

Have been busy with a marriage in the family so no updates for quite a few days ...
Hubby was supposed to return from him trip in 10 days ...
ts already 16 days now and he is still stuck due to some immigration/visa process :(
Life and its twists and turns ...
He missed the wedding ... And the wedding lost its charm and importance for me ...
So for whom do I dress up and make up and get decked ... would have loved to have him around ...
I would have enjoyed the wedding had he been around ... without him ... fun is no fun at all ...
SAD :(

Judaii – Separation


That's what I am experiencing right now. From my beloved hubby.

He keeps travelling between Mumbai and Dubai for his work

I have spent 10 out of the last 12 months in Dubai and been to every place in Dubai worth visiting barring a few (which were either too expensive or not feasible for us to visit).

Right now I am also between the two cities, spending some time here and there due to some family commitments.

All this travel is leading to increasing instances of 'judai' for me and being recently married (well … just 1.5 years) it's kind of hard and emotionally bad for me.

Hope this changes soon …

2-Wheeler Back Seat Driving

My hubby doesn’t like driving a 4-wheeler … he is a 2-wheeler person …
He is ready to travel the length and breadth of the city on his Activa but wouldn’t drive the car to the nearest of the places.
And so … I get to ‘enjoy’ the absolutely bumpy ride on the back seat of the Activa. The Mumbai roads provide an absolutely roller coaster ride and the other vehicles on the road (primarily bikers, BEST buses etc) provide you with your own fair share of scary entertaining moments coming inches close to you giving you the ‘near death life flashing in front of yours eyes’ experience almost every other day.
And while my husband deals with the twists and turns of the traffic and road conditions, he also has to bear my squeals and screams which automatically and involuntarily emanate from my mouth at every small and big bump.
He is quite used to it now … but the passengers of other vehicles and pedestrians are not !

Mumbai Local

Ever got into a moving local train …

I did just that today …

And I did something even more stupid than that …

I got down from the moving train after I realized that my husband, brother-in-law and others were still on the platform and had not got onto the moving train …

Strict (loud and clear) words from my husband …

Never get on to a moving train … and if you do … NEVER EVER get off !!
The experience was equally funny as it was dangerous and scary !!
so ... my advice to you ...
Never get on to a moving train … and if you do … NEVER EVER get off !!

Life Changes


Life changes … reflecting changes that happen around you

Life changes … reflecting changes in weather

Life changes … reflecting changes in people around you

Life changes … reflecting changes within you
Life ...

My Space

Needed a space to record interesting aspects of life …
Things I see, hear, read …
Life … in general

This blog is my attempt to create that space !

Most of my posts will be short.
Some might be even long if I begin to write about something that touches me

I dont really have a plan for my blog.

Time will tell what shape it takes
