Up and About

Its been a while since I last wrote… Well to be honest it has been a very busy last 5 months ( right a very cliched excuse for my procrastination).. To start with let me fill you up with all that has been happening. I got married .. Yes, I did and in one simple word marriage is pure bliss, yes, we have our share of fighting and screaming but love  continues to be the over-ridding factor… So we got married in November, had an awesome honeymoon in Thailand, set up my place in December, only to discover that my man was off to the States in January.. That left me completely heart-broken, I mean let us face it, we have just got married, give us a couple of month for Christ sake… But who is going to bell the cat, the IT Industry is devoid of any human emotions… And so he made his way to the US…  What of me; well we thought, mulled over and even kind of came to a conclusion, only to realise that it was simply impossible to adhere to any such plan.. We had to be together, so I took a call, wasn’t really very difficult because, I wanted a break, had been working for way too long so I decided to make my way to the Third continent but after 4 very long months…. I have to say this I missed him terribly…

So, I landed in King of Prussia, Philadelphia  (there is actually a place with that name) last Sunday.. The husband was there to receive me and believe you me , what a refreshing sight, after 4months and 22 hours of fight… So I came into my husband’s pad, a complete bachelor place, needed a fair bit of tweaking, but I really do not mind, I have set up houses in 2 continents so this should be fun more so when it is with my man..Endless trips to Walmart, Ikea and not to mention the Indian Store… But I am enjoying it, Setting up the house, cooking cleaning, washing and still managing to have some time to myself to reading, writing etc.. I mean while I was working I hardly did any housework, but I never had time to my self… A part of me always wanted to be a domestic goddess though I am far from it, but it feels nice to get things in order.. The third Continent has been so far rather welcoming… I do not know what lies ahead but for now domestic bliss is a rather welcome change and I am loving it….

You Me aur Hum…

Sorry, I have been away for a while… No particular reason, You could call it laziness, its not like i had nothing to write, trust me I had enough matters to pen down but for what ever reason never really got around to do so and as always, I had an excuse, work!!!  Anyway coming back to the point.. so here I am…

It is November 2011 finally..Which means in 18 days time I am getting married… Right yes, it is true I am indeed getting married.. Prithwish is back from his tantalising  business trip and yes,we are all set to tie the knot.. I mean almost…

Ok may be may be not.. I mean I love this man to bits there is no two ways to that   and I want to spend the rest of my life with him… I have so many plans for us together, so many dreams and all this while I had i had it figured, so I thought, but as they say life is not a SWOT analysis and you do not have an SOP..  I know I want it all with him, only thing is I am  not sure do I want it now, am  I ready for this, will i be able to handle it all, what ifs and if nots are the things that keep coming to my mind and I feel like withdrawing into some sort of a shell, hide my self and pretty much stay there.. I wish I had the luxury of doing so…

There is work that keeps you busy, with a monthly magazine, weekly news letter and other pending issues, most of my day goes in sorting them but then there are still 14 odd hours left and that gives me enough time to fret and worry… In short I am scared to my wits end and have been for sometime.. Have I spoken to Prithwish about it? Off course I have and we are sailing in the same boat trust me.. except he looks at it differently… He told me that yes, it will be a new setting,yes,we will make mistakes and no there will not be rainbows day after day but as long as we are together the rest will fall in to place.. Strangely, My daddy had said the same thing to Mum after their marriage and there’s have been one of the most happy and successful marriage i have known..interesting…

Last week there was a little ceremony a kind of puja at our place where in Prithwish had to be present  That is when I reaslised how important he is..This was done for our happy life… His presence him  holding my hand and promising that come what may I will stand by you.. that is what matters.  All this while I have been fretting but last Saturday when he stood by me and One look at his face, and my troubles seemed to take a back seat and I am assured that as long as we are together the rest will figure it self.. Yes,we will have our fights and bickering and yes, we will argue but then which happy marriage does not, at the end of the day what matters that we are together and when you wake up in the morning he will be there right by my side ( at least I hope he will be unless I do not drive him up the wall by then). So as I stood holding his hands, I could see a life time of adventures, action, drama, laughter and a lot of love and fear seemed to have lost its way completely… Life had never been this beautiful not to mention inviting….

I love You…..

Sometimes it is not enough to assume…. there are times you must say and say you must over and over again.. so that you have never have to regret for not having said so… 

Darling I love you, for the person you are, for the joy you give me, for the light you bring in, for the smile on my face, for the odd tears (trust me you need that too)… For bringing the best in me…  For holding me when I fall and giving me the strength to go ever onward..For being my best of friends and my severest critic and correcting me when ever falter so that I can aspire to be best and for being my biggest inspiration behind cooking a hobby I have learnt to love….

I love you for sitting through my tears and the ever so comforting assurance and believing in me more that myself that I will be “just fine” even when you are not around… When you left 2 months back ( though I know it is only temporary) I felt my world crumbling literally. To the world I was brave with a smile on my face, telling them oh he will be back but my heart knows how much I cried and how much I was torn to see you go.. It was then that you held on to me and said “Nandini I am always there and when ever you are lonely just think of me and there will be a smile on your face and that smile will be mine.” Trust me, that statement of yours have kept me going all these days….

Above All I love you for loving me just as I am and I love you for who you are and always have been…. My dear .

May that Finally Was!!

I lived through.. I survived May, For the first time in 14 years nothing went wrong, no accidents (well almost), let us just put it this way  nothing major… No Deaths however close or distant family and friends.. Just the one bout of depression and that too was well handled.. An oh so smooth May I had always hoped and wished for finally came my way.. 

Credits :
 D.A. for instilling this belief in me that this too shall pass.. A year back D.A. held this belief and a year   on, D.A. thank you.. for your keeping you faith when mine faltered …Without you this would not have been possible.. But to thank you will be an insult to our relationship.. just a heartfelt gratitude…

Mum and Dad: Every year since that fateful year, you stood firm in your conviction that there will come that one May when I would laugh again and I could say that my tears would finally bring me laughter. Priceless support!!!

And where do I start.. You my dear, did what none could ever manage to do, you taught me to laugh in May.. You taught me to be happy and mostly you taught me to look beyond my depression and appreciate all that is.. And for all the love that became my shield my strength to tide through this… Your love got me to believe, to hope for, to dream off and of all to smile and to live.. A feeling impossible pen down.. Just that; I keep wondering how is one capable of so much love………..

The Months that were.
Right, I am back after a fairly long hiatus.. The past two months have been so hectic, it is almost like being on a roller-coaster ride. On the professional front ; I changed jobs, got involved in a sector I had never explored and got my hands on a work plan, I never thought I would get involved in.. A student of Politics and History is now bringing out digital marketing year books, Working on Market research and producing E-commerce reports, coupled with the odd brand building procedure and formulating market projections to name a few. Not to say that I do not enjoy my current work area, it is just that I had never thought I would land up in such a scenario. Oh well, there is always a first time to everything and one has something or the other to learn from in terms of the work they do.  But I have a great working space, wonderful colleagues and a very helpful and clear cut Boss, so help is always a knock away. But the one not so good aspect of my current profile, probably the only bit that I don not enjoy is the eating out bit every odd day, now that kills my system not to mention the extra mile that I need to run on the treadmill.. The trials of the job.. 
On the family front.. Last month has been quite eventful..It started with my sisters’ birthdays, followed by my brother’s visit and a hope that he will finally make it to the alter. then off course it was dad’s birthday, the much awaited, eagerly expected Hyderabad trip and finally culminating with dad’s retirement. After 36 years of serving the Government and holding a fair bit of accolades, he closed shop on 30th of April.. 28 of which he had dedicated to the top intelligence agency of the country and suddenly, it seems it is an end of an era. But one good thing in this was, I got to see the National Police academy, where my dad was trained to adorn the IPS uniform and the responsibilities that came with it.. It was proud moment indeed, The Pass-out, the alma-mater, his better half and a very proud daughter.. The best thing in all this was, seeing my Grandfather’s name and my father’s name side by side as father and son, in the service of the nation….A priceless experience….
On the personal front.. things have taken a whole some shape, I met the man of my dreams, fell in love, I mean I am still in the process of falling in love but, you know it is this wonderful feeling, you feel wanted, loved and there is a tremendous satisfaction..You know he is there, he is looking over you and you have so much love to turn to, that sometimes you wonder whether you at all deserve it.. For me, my man Prithwish, is just the most amazing thing that has ever happened to me.. His kind and loving nature, his ever smiling face and his perpetual assurance that things will fall in place and all will be well, is an immense sense of relief coupled with the reassurance that no matter what happens, when ever I turn around, he will be there waiting for me, looking out for me and ever willing helping hand.. While I had always wished that I would some day fall in love with a man of similar qualities, I had never hoped that such a thing would happen and that such men were a figment of my imagination.. I know it is still too early, and Prithwish and I have a long road ahead, there will be ups and downs, rights and wrongs, yeses and nos, but as they say morning shows the day, the indications are good and for once I am hopeful that as long as we are together, the rest will eventually fall in place.. It is a life time of commitments, adjustments and endurance and I for once am totally convinced that this is what I want and this is where I am meant to be.. I have no qualms in admitting that I am hopelessly in love with this man, not for the sake of love, but for the man he is and for the life we  would have together.. So yes, it is indeed a wonderful feeling to love to adore, to be loved and to be adored by a man who means the world to you..
I could not find a better song than this to describe my love and dedication for this lovely man 🙂

All in all it is has been an eventful couple of months.. For the first time I am not skeptical about the Month of May as I have always been, given due to past incidents.. For the first time I feel this jinx might just be broken and a start to something fresh and happy.. Though I still keep my fingers crossed.. just so that I can be sure… But it is good to be back!!!!
