we were piled over with gifts for our marriage,my brother's marriage and then my daughter's birthday.and with celebrations comes friends and family;and with them comes gifts.piles of them.i have a special feeling for being pampered around with gifts surprised ones or just simply "the have to give ones".gifts are gifts small or big.
after all the celebration all i could find in my house were the gift boxes...i was a bit bemused and was unable to distinguish the ones that were the real gifts and the ones that was gifted and then turned out to be a gift again... it took us one whole day to rip off the wrap and to actually see the treasure dug inside.and then to categorize the ones that are to be accepted and the gifts which will forever be just gifts :P

this is almost like a game.when rounded around the "forever gifts" might even ironically end up to the person who might have actually brought it.well that's what you can actually call a "surprise gift".the good thing is that you still know your gift is safe and sound!!!!

well personally i feel this is an open way to show how cheap you are.though however happy i would feel when pampered with gifts i still do not prefer the "gifted gifts".its better not to gift at all!!!!

definitely an indian

confused ass usual :P

well its been sometime since i have actually blogged..Ive just got up lazily from my sleep and then i couldn't just control this urge in me to pen down..ehem click down to be exact..
its been 2 years since pune has been my second home...i love this city for its freedom and the privacy..more than that it gave me an independence which none of the place has ever given..not prejudiced about the other places though..i love my hometown though however narrow the place is and its people are.
we're shifting!!and i still cant digest the fact.. somehow i don't like the idea..this you may say can be categorized to sacrifice.i really don't like the idea of living under one roof with so many people with such a lot of differences..i know i can adjust its not that i have attitude problem..and even if i have its simply my own headache..

confused as always i am now..
relations have become too raw
rages of fury growing inside
will never leave my side
i wish i could make a difference
a justice i can do to myself
freedom is all i urge
my heart is still on the verge
the warrior in me arises
when my pride is abused!!!
