I never let go of a chance of putting mehndi/henna on my hands.Especially now that we have these instant mehndi artists in front of some of the most popular cosmetic/apparel shops in the city.For as low as Rs.50/- they draw the most intricate designs on the palm.Indian,Arabic,Pakistani,you name it and they draw it for you.
I usually get my left hand henna-ed every time but this time indulged myself and got it done on both my hands as we were off to attend a family wedding.I love the crimson hue which lasts on the hands for a while and the smell,ah I love it!

What I am watching now # 1

Pehla Nasha has been a favorite song ever since my school days.Mainly because it starred Aamir Khan in his cutest avatar ever and second,the song is so hum-able and lovely.For a long time,we sang it Pehla Nasha pehla hua when it is actually khumar :)

This video is awesome.Talent unlimited.

Some weight issues..

I must have been about 10-11 when I first heard the word diet.We were at a family friends' place having tea and I said no to a sweet I did not like and the lady asked me if I was on a diet.I did not know what it meant and once home,I looked up the meaning on the dictionary and was shocked and offended.Sure,I wasn't fat or plump,I just had some baby fat on me and this lady had the audacity to ask me if I was on a diet!

But slowly reality dawned and I did realize I was overweight than my peers,but sadly for a long time I did not do anything about it.and then college happened and I had to shake off those excess kilos to fit in.Since then,I've been on and off with my weight.Or lets put it this way,since then I am always 'on' or 'off' a diet at any given point depending on the 'then' requirement.

One thing which puts me off is this-whenever someone's lost weight and mind you,even if it is in grams,the first thing they do is pick out slightly overweight poor souls(which btw did exist when they were overweight!)and ask them to do something about their weight and a big lecture on healthy eating and exercising to stay fit.Excuse me?

So if you have lost weight and looking fitter than ever before,I've just got one thing to say-wonderful,good for you but stop picking on others or else all of them are going to pounce on you when you put on a kilo or two :)
