Today is one more day which I can list in one of the most embarrassing day in my life. In spite of being in such an embarrassing situation today, the mere thought of it is making me laugh on my stupidity.
This embarrassing time started with a phone call which I got this morning as I reached office. It was my colleague's call who asked me to hurry to the ground which was near to my office. On asking her the reason she told me that some competition is held there and so she wants me to come. Hearing this I got excited as I thought that there must be some competition in which kids would participate in singing or dancing or may be some rangoli competition which I could capture in my cell phone. Without a second thought I left office immediately and reached the place as told by her only to know that it was a complete different scene there from what I had expected it to be.
To my shock it was not any easy participation but it was a women's throw ball competition of my office staff Vs some other office staff. Even before I was out of this shock they gave me another shock saying they want me to participate in it. My ear drums burst when I heard such a thing. All my efforts to deny it went it vain. A girl who was never involved in any outdoor sports even during the primary schooling was now a player in a team representing my office.
A voice from my brain started taunting and teasing me with a wicked laugh *Khi Khi Khi Khi, Ab kya karegi Sonia?*
Within no time they instructed me the rules of the game and the game started. I was surprised to see a lady of age around 54 years who was so active and was playing so well and me being so young was standing numb like a statue looking here and there. I could not catch a single throw :-((. I heard my office political people commenting in Kannada, "Shaalege Hoglilva Ninu, Aata aadlilva? Ille direct appoint aagi bandiddiya?"(Din't you ever go to school and play? Are you directly appointed here?) I ignored them at that moment and prayed god to tear the earth wide open and engulf me inside it. I was just waiting eagerly for that embarrassing time to pass by soon and at last the game was finished.
Result was obvious. My office lost terribly. Well, its an understood fact that how can a team win if it has great players like me. :-P
So readers, have you ever been in such an awkward moment in your life? Then share it here in comments and lets laugh out hard and overcome that awkwardness which is still somewhere in our mind :-)
P.S: Just finished reading a book "Life is what you make it" by Preeti Shenoy. A very nice book with a inspiring story of Ankita's life. The author is capable to create the magic of words in this. I suggest every girl has to read this book. :)

I have penned this down on a paper notepad while I was attending a office Staff Meeting in the meeting hall of my office. I knew I would have no work to do there as there was no such subject related to my concerned section to be discussed but still I had to attend it and get bugged. So to save my self from dozing off I thought I would at least do this holy work ;-)
President and Commissioner of my office have decided to conduct a meeting today but I have nothing to do here. Just sitting idle on the chair looking at the people around me. The people who have spent more than 40+ years here, contributing more than half of their life in serving this office. In this huge time they even lost their hair and developed a big tummy but still everyone are happy with the life they have spent here. They must have joined this place when they were young and enthusiastic but this place has snatched all their charm and now the only thing they have is a dull face with a bald head and a big tummy. This makes me scared of turning like this after some years if I continue working here. "OH GOD PLEASE LISTEN TO ME, I DESPERATELY NEED A CHANGE"
The meeting has started and now I can hear all blah blah in Kannada. This is so nostalgic and I remember the time when I could rarely understand Kannada just couple of years back and people would laugh their ass out if I would try to talk in this language but thankfully these two years have made me not only understand but also to talk and write in Kannada. *My achievement* :-P.
Getting back from this nostalgic journey of learning Kannada language I can see different expression on everybody's face. Some face full of curiosity, some are pretending to write down something on paper, some fiddling with their cell phone, some looking at the wall clock for every few minutes, some sleepy, some rusted brains are working almost after decade and that too just to think about the fake answers to give if a question regarding their work is been asked and some looking at me to figure out what am I penning down so seriously.
I always wonder why these people around me are so much curious to know everything that I do. Sometimes I feel I have dropped into some other planet where all the aliens around me are keeping an eye on me and sometimes I feel like I am an alien from other planet who is left back here on earth and all the people around me are very keen to observe every moment of mine.
Seeing my terribly bored face one of my colleague sent me a text who was sitting just opposite to me. I opened the message to read and it displayed, " Why this Kolavari Kolavari D?". With the same mood I replied him, "Because D comes after C, so it is Kolavari D" and gave a very artificial smile looking at him.
Finally the time came for which I was eagerly waiting. Ya it was a tea time. I had a cup of tea and some snacks and the meeting got over.
This is what happens in a meeting in a Government Office :)
Please spare me if you are bored after reading this as I have written it when I was completely bugged up.
P.S: After reading some good reviews in flipkart.com got a new book to read. "Few things left unsaid". Have finished just few pages but I must say I am really disappointed. Book is not worth reading even once. *tears* :-(

It was since more than one month me and my cousins were planning for New Year Party. This years New Year party meant a lot for us as one of my cousin is getting married this year and so probably we may not get a chance to celebrate this occasion together from now on wards. I promised my little cousin Aishu who was most excited amongst us for this party that I will take a leave on 31st and will reach my home town early morning and we will make all the arrangements.
The party was planned. It was a beach party with some good food, some games, gifts and other stuffs.
So, finally the day had come. It was 30th and I had to apply for the leave(I have saved some leaves so that I can easily get it on 31st), I completed all my work before afternoon and with full excitement I applied for a leave. And guess what??? My leave was not sanctioned. My heart broke into thousand pieces :-(How could I cancel the entire plan just because of my silly boss who did not grant me a leave? Neither I wanted to break my little cousin Aishu's heart who was waiting for me and nor I wanted to cancel the entire plan just because of me. I requested my boss that its really urgent and I have completed all the office work. But he replied with a big NO. I told him since its an emergency I will have to go even if leave won't be granted. But, my stoned hearted boss did not agree. I told myself, *Leave ki toh aisi ki taisi, Maar goli office ko* and I bunked the office.
We enjoyed the party to the fullest and welcomed the year wholeheartedly.
So 1st was Sunday and I spent it enjoying with my lovely cousins and today is the 1st day of this year at my office. As I entered today morning I was been welcomed by a notice for being absent on 31st. Notice states that my 1 day salary will be deducted and I need to give a reply to it within 24 hours or strict action will be taken against me :-P
Well, this is how my new year has started. Now let me see what all this year has got for me along with it.:-)
A Very Happy New Year Readers:-) May this year brings a lot of good luck to u all:) Happy Blogging:-)
P.S: After a long wait from Flipkart.com and Bluedart couriers finally the book reached me today. Starting this year with the book Of Course I Love You..! I hope it is up to my expectations :-)
