What's your Prograaaaam???

"So..the long weekend's coming up,what's your program??"

Is it necessary that every holiday you get you have to go somewhere to prove that you enjoy life and you know how to have a great time??

A friend of mine who recently settled abroad casually mentioned to me that I need to take a "break".Like them for example,every weekend,they take the car and drive around and go places.She makes sure every single picture they take during the trip reaches me and several other friends ceremoniously.More often than not,she asks me how did I find the pictures..excuse me??You send me 250+ pictures and expect me to go through them one by one and comment on it too??Oh come on..:):)

For the record,we are taking a break my dear friend,going to Mahabs for a while and then to Bangalore[which btw in that friends opinion is not a holiday since we are going to Ajay's house:)]

Wish you all a Happy whats your program??:):)

Please leave us alone!!

Venue-A Cooking class I attended.

Each one of us were introducing each other,informally.Before me 2 others introduced themselves.One was an HR executive and the other was in the Tourism industry.My turn came and I said,I am a house-wife,stay at home.Pat came the next question-Just married huh??I smiled.Not giving a hint whether I agree or disagree with them.

If I told them,I was married for 7 years,immediately other questions would follow and I didn't want to delay the class.

Oh yeah,it happens all the time.Come Birthdays,Anniversaries,I get tensed to share our joy and share the sweets.People just can't stop asking.

Some of them -

"So,how long you been married..isn't it time you welcomed a bundle of joy now??"

" are not getting younger by the day..still on family planning huh??"

"All of your cousins/friends have kids..why are you delaying??"

In between,I tried and lost few kgs,some more followed.

" lost weight and all that,now you would delay your pregnancy further no..there's more to life than being thin!!"

Earlier,one of these comments used to spoil my whole day.I would sit and sulk and feel terribly sad.But then life goes on and now I have learned to brush it all aside now.

God has been eluding that ONE happiness for us since long.We have waited long enough for it and still are.I wonder why people do not realize that fact and just leave us alone.They can't be more bothered about it than we are.

Don't even get me started with those who sympathize and suggest Doctors and Temples..!!!
