Being Lazily Happy

on weekends means getting up at 8am and feeling like getting up! 

Having a great coffee, breakfast and conversation at Wad with S, X and R. 
Visiting the up and coming construction site that I am so invested into (pun intended).
Finishing veggies shopping in time. 
Lounging at ma's with nothing to do.
Having a chillaxed lunch.
Getting a long and happy nap! (Highlight!)
Going shopping in a cute little boutique with S and R and finding some lovely stuff!
Buying some good books.
Having some great 'sabudana khichadi' and Kingfisher Draught Beer!
Watching IPL final and Deccan Chargers claiming the cup!!

The World of Extremes

This world is so full of extremes! We all know it and still it continues to surprise me almost every single time!! 

Case in point - recent political and therefore, impending economic developments in India. Two people expressed two opinions to me in a span of 24 hours. While one thought now within a 100days(thanks to Mr. Singh's plan) the face of India will change, India will decouple fully (please note that all the reforms he kept asking for were to do with liberalisation and increased global exposure!), the other distressed that Congress will be 'themselves' for another 5 years. (Ask him which party was his choice and why complain if by being 'themselves' UPA indirectly grew his salary ten-fold in last five years and you won't get no answer!) 

What do people want?? Everything?? Or they simply do not know what they want??! 

Another fine gentleman said to me, now the real estate will zoom past the earlier highs in no time. Why? Was UPA buying/hoarding real estate across the country?? Then why will this happen overnight - even proverbially overnight?? The equity market is allowed to swing wild and show a thumping sentiment but not a market like real estate will behave that way! And another nay-Sayer on the other hand insisted that real estate in on a doom's day path as government will 'actively' (note the choice of words) bring the prices down! Where are we? In a Communist run country or a disctatorship?? And which prices? Only of the end product or the raw material as well? Is it impossible for the new business models to emerge in such a scenario?? And in any case this chap is buying a house to stay!! Talk hypocrisy!! 

Honestly!!! The right of speech in democracy is so well abused!! 

Including by your truly!! :)

After a long hiatus!

The only thing that this post is - is Random!

I have realised I am the minority in this city. I voted.
Barring the fact that the lady at the booth got over excited with the painting stick it was a quick one.

I saw a man wearing a pink shirt riding a pink scooty!!

The reptile friend visited my window cill again!

A very very dear friend lit up three weeks in April! Hugs Snigi! Loved having you around and re-connecting and talking and laughing and bitching and partying!! She actually prompted me to take a half day off and travel to Mumbai to party! Very unlike me!! But we had a great time!!
