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 :-)

Just yesterday the entire world celebrated Christmas. By now Santa Claus must have finished distributing his gifts to everyone. So what did Santa uncle gift you friends?
Hmmm.. Let me tell you about his gifts for me :-)
Today morning as usual I was walking to my office after the bus droped me at the bus stand. After walking for a while my eyes all of a sudden got stuck on the little colourful dolls which a old lady has kept on a table nearby her. It was the first time this old lady was sitting there as I had never seen these dolls on my way to office earlier. I kept walking and went few steps ahead but I realized that those little dolls were still on my mind. They were not ready to leave my mind and have grabbed all my attention just in 1 look. It was not possible for me to keep walking ignoring them. I turned back and went to that old lady sitting there and asked her,'Are they for sale?'. She replied,'Yes!'. (I immediately felt how stupid I was to ask this question. What else a old lady will do sitting besides a table full of dolls at morning).
Out of those so many colorful dolls I selected this one. "A LITTLE ANGEL". I don't know the reason but I am very much fantasized about angels. I have a wish that some day I meet an angel in reality. :) But, till than I am happy with this one.
The second piece I selected is " A SWEET COUPLE" sitting holding each others hands. May be I picked it up thinking that its me and my Mr.Right. *Wink*.
These cute colorful dolls made my entire day beautiful. I am sure that while getting back home I will not find that old lady sitting there with the dolls. May be Santa has sent his gifts to me in this way. :-D
So readers, what do you say? Did you like them? :-D

I was completely busy working at my office and heard my cell phone ringing. It was my Mom's call and I received it thinking why is she calling me at unexpected time.ME: Hello.
MUMMY: What are you doing?
ME: Working Mummy. What Happened?
MUMMY: Get back home early today evening as we are going to attend some function.
ME: Function? What function and where?
MUMMY: Its your tailor aunties grand daughter babies Naming Ceremony.
ME: Whattt????? And you expect me to attend it huh? No ways.. Just forget it..
MUMMY: What is the problem if you come along with me? I don't want to go alone.
ME: But what should I do there. U go Mummy. I am not coming.
(I see my boss entering my cabin)
Mummy: I don't know anything. You are coming. That's it.
Me: (In the hurry to cut the call seeing my boss)
I forgot about this conversation and left office at the usual time. Totally strained because of work and travelling reached home to see Mom getting ready for the function.ME: Oh! noo..
MUMMY: Come. Get freshen up and get ready soon. Lets go.
ME: Oh please Mummy I am damn tired. I can't.
MUMMY: You told me you will come along with me this morning when I called you. But now when I got ready you are saying you wont be coming huh? (with full emotional atyachaar).ME: Okay! Okay! Now stop it. Let's go. At least gimme a cup of tea.
MUMMY: Lets have it there itself.
ME: :-( :-( :-( (got ready).
We reached the place and I was shocked to see there was not even a single guest there. The main door was wide open, so I peeped in but could not see anyone. I knocked the door and then tailor aunty came out and welcomed us inside and said that the function was over this morning itself and she was waiting for us but got disappointed thinking we wont come. Mummy explained her that we would have come but due to our office it was not possible. She called us inside and rolled a mat on the floor and asked us to sit down.
As I settled down she brought a little fairy who was covered in light pink cloth and kept her on my lap. And OMG that moment was just awesomazingly awesome when I saw a 3 months old little fairy moving her tiny hand and legs on my lap.
Her sweet pink lips, her tiny fingers, her tender skin, her chubby cheeks, her innocent eyes made all my stress to disappear with in a fraction of second.
I asked tailor aunty, " So what have you named her as"?
She replied, "SONALIKA".
I said to this fairy, Hey Sonalika you are cho cute and her tiny pink lips took a shape of a curve and she smiled as if she know me very well. :-)
Her Granny gave us some sweets and a cup of a tea and surprisingly said," Hey, look at her she is smiling. From morning so many guest have come and tried talking to her but she din't respond to anyone but now she is smiling at you".
My smile became more wider listening to this. This little fairy has attracted my eye balls in such a way that I din't even wanted to wink my eyes. I din't wanted to leave the place so early but how long could I stay there?
Mom said to tailor aunty," Well, its late now. We should leave".
Even I said Bye to little fairy Sonalika and left to get back home and silently thanked my mom in my mind for taking me there.
I wish this little fairy lead her life like a princess and she gets the happiness of the entire world.

Its said that God can't be everywhere and so he sends his angel in the name of Mother :)
Her day starts with a big struggle of waking me up. The first words she says everyday is, " Get up Baala, how much will you sleep?" for which I reply with the closed eyes and heavy voice, "Five minutes Mummy". And ya as known these five minutes will never end until I once again hear her sweet voice, " Get up Pora, how can you sleep so much?" for which once again my common reply," Mummy Please five minutes more na". And after this so called five minutes once again she shouts from the kitchen,"Get up Sony or you will be late to the office". And than her Princess somehow manages to get up. So much patience, so much understanding, never gets angry, never complains about anything. This is the way God has programmed my Mummy :-)
Every morning she keeps running from one room to another fully tensed to finish her work on time. She is so perfect and so organised in every work she does that even work will be proud after it is completed as Mummy has done it so perfectly. I sometimes feel like she has got some magical powers because whenever i can't find something even after searching it for hours together, it just magically appears when my mom looks.
While I am getting ready for my official tour my mom gets more tensed then me that I will miss my bus. Before I get ready a water bottle will be kept in my bag so that I should not feel thirsty on the way. And her 100's of instructions before I leave home of which I don't even remember one as I step out of home.
My Mother is my inspiration. From her I have learnt how to be strong and be ready to face any kind a problem in life without complaining it to anyone, I have learnt how to be self dependent, I have learnt how to forgive someone's mistake even if it has hurt me. But, still there are so many countless things to learn from her. I really feel glad when my friends and relatives say that I am like my Mom, but I know that I am not. I wish I was as perfect as her, I wish someday I become as organised as her. So easily she manages house and work together, I wish even I be able to do that someday like her. I feel glad when she proudly introduces me to her friends, "She is my daughter". It also gives me a feeling of satisfaction that I have been a good daughter to her till date.
How easily I am able to write all these things in a blog but never ever I can express this in front of her that what she means to me. Everyone of us have so many feelings for our Mother but why is that we are not able to tell them. Its so easy to become rude on our mother and regret later but how hard to show our love and affection that we truely have on her.
I sometimes feel how lucky are those boys who never have to stay away from their Mother, I wish was a guy. But than a thought strikes me If I was a guy then would I have the similar thinking for my Mom as now or even I would prefer to stay away from her like some of those selfish guys.
Well, whatever it might be. The Mothers place in every individuals life will remain intact and can never be replaced by any other thing. I know everyone are gifted the best angel by God in name of mother. But , I am God's favorite girl and so he has sent his bestest angel for me :-)
Love You Mummy :-)
