Ain't so bad

So being in your native is not that bad after all.
Following are the pros to make you feel good:

  1. ZERO WORK: I don't have to work around the house, a bunch of maids are to to that & they don't even let you work.. It is BLISS & Awkward because I'm not used to it. Thanks to living a maid-less life in Mumbai.
  2. ZOOM AROUND: My uncle has a scooty that I'm allowed to ride the entire day /wahaha obviously it invites certain stares & expressions from his face but- who cares? :D
  3. ROAMING-SHOAMING-SHOPPING: My Aunties go the limit to make me feel happy. From my favorite foods, to clothes, to fairs, everything. :) It's a good feeling, really :)
  4. MONEY: The more families you meet, the better. I met 2 of my grandmothers, one other aunty & an empty-pocket-kari roams around wid a good 500bucks /wahaha More on the way I'm sure.. Hoping to hit 2 grands to make my trip worth :P
  5. MAA-KA-PYAAR:  My mum has been very happy eversince I haven't uttered one word against coming here and have been sticking a smile on my ever-mourning face. She's being extremely good to me & promising me my demands on getting home :D :D /wahaha *Hoping she sticks to it*
  6. REALIZATION: I've realised how much my home, my friends and every bit of my normal life means to me & how much I mean to my friends. I've realised how much my family loves me & understands me. I've finally realised that coming back to your native AIN'T SO BAD

Until Next Post,

Dan Brown: The Lost Symbol = Amazing

Drooling on DB!

Book                   : The Lost Symbol
Author               : Dan Brown
Date of Release : September 2009

This book is one of the books I can safely call "Page-turner"

P. S.: Not for faint-hearted who cry even if a security guard dies. Otherwise this book is for everyone who likes to read.

Keep In Mind :

If you want to totally understand the book & make it a movie-like experience and obviously dont want it to be a /blur blur)

1. Like me, if you’re not an American national or haven’t visited America in person- keep GOOGLE open at all times.

2. If this is not possible, keep a notepad and make notes of all places and things that you do not understand to later search for them. Also, write the page numbers, will keep you in flow of the story :D 

{Please, don’t dirty your copy of a novel, never- they’re not textbooks, people will read them & let them do so without your disturbing markings :)}

I hopped on the Vidhar Gondia Express on April 18, the train jumped into motion, after all passengers got settled; I climbed up on the dreaded Upper Seat of the cool AC Coach and removed from my bag this mysterious book. I looked down to see what my mom was doing- she had already made acquaintances with the fellow passengers so I left at that.

My elder sister had got this, read it & when I asked her "How's it?" she replied with a mere "It’s just 'The Secret'" referring to the book by Rhonda Byrne. But my mom’s warning that I am to accompany her to my native had been sudden and left me with no time to go to a book shop & rent some books for my time in Nagpur. So, I grabbed whichever book I hadn’t read that was available at home and The Lost Symbol was the most attractive of them all because I never found Appy's “It’s just ‘The Secret’” convincing enough.

The first few pages said majority things were real, I went /hmm and read further stopping at page 110 only because my mom was calling me down for dinner… I read for 3hours and I didn’t even know. Normally, I’m a ferocious reader but having seen ‘The Da Vinci Code’ and ‘Angels & Demons’, I knew I had to swallow each word, understand and create a correct picture of whatever was happening.

No, I’m not giving you a review of The Lost Symbol; there are a whole bunch of websites for that pick your like. All I’m telling is that it is a very good book- full of twists and turns, the best part is Robert Langdon does EVERYTHING FOR YOU; you only need to cozy up and read and understand. But I promise you, you're gonna have a share of /omg Oh My God! moments :)
Dan Brown is one author that makes all others look timid. Read his books, you’ll side with me very soon :)

If you’re reading this, go rent/ buy The Lost Symbol and tell me how you like it. I can’t wait to go back home and discuss this with my elder sister- its gonna be fun.

Until Next time,

Surprise! Surprise! Native Calling

Dear all,

After my realization hit me on April 17.. I was confident that this time "I" would control my Summer time :) & make each day worth-while, special and all those things that it takes for some days to have a permanent place in your memory. :D

There I was feeling totally powerful /wahaha and switching off my computer I went into the kitchen to eat something when my mom came & showed me "Whose the boss" by saying, "Karima, you're coming with me to Nagpur. We leave tomorrow" 
I was shocked /shock but had to obey, tickets had arrived.

So right now, I'm in a cyber cafe called "Fatemi" & writing this down because this blog is my only hope for survival.

But you know, things aren't bad out here :)

Until my next post,
Currie /bye

Boredom Boredom Boredom

I'm Karima, a BMM (Bachelor of Mass Media) student whose just finished with her Semester II exams, the last one being on 7th April 2010. The ending of a really hectic year was a bliss but the beginning of utter nothing brought boredom- PURE and UNADULTERATED boredom!

On April 8, I woke up at 11am & my head was light.. so light that I almost felt my head would fly. Ever ordinary morning I woke up & recollected the things I was supposed to cover in the day but today was different- i had NOTHING to do, apart from sitting on FaceBook and Orkut & waiting for people to put up statues & photos I could comment on.
(Same must be the case with Everyone, I'm sure)

And this was the daily routine that I followed everyday since 8th..

but Today, April 17, I decide that this isn't gonna be my Schedule for the rest of the 2-month-long Summer! I'm gonna make the most of it in the most INEXPENSIVE ways possible & hope that this summer adds knowledge, experience & colors my life with FUN

Let's Begin :)
