Why am I a modern day Meera?

Whenever I try to write something about you, I fail. You are not my ex. You are not my friend. You are a heartbreak that I never allow to heal. You've been special that way ever since I met you. Remember the first online chat we had. With our fake profile pictures, quirky usernames, we were trying to hide our real identity. Fortunately, our true-selves were reflected in the short sarcastic sentences we typed. I knew, you were my type! However, I was not. And that makes me curse the destiny. Why God, why?
You were the missing piece that fitted perfectly with the jarred edges of my heart. I wanted our relationship to grow. It grew too. We had a label-less relation. We could tell everything to each other. We could go missing from each other's lives with no explanation. We could jump in and carry on as if nothing changed. Well, nothing could change - no man was man enough to take your place in your absence! You were the only one who understood me the way I wanted. You were the only…

Here Comes A Flying Jatt... Straight into your Living Room on 22nd October

Image
Weekends are for chores and movies, at least in my home. If we don’t watch a movie, we feel we are still in the work mode. However, best weekends are those in which a recent release is playing on the TV. It saves the labor of switching channels to find a flick. You see, we are very picky. We want humor, action, songs, romance and drama in a movie. In simple words, we love Bollywood Masala Movies. When I heard that A Flying Jatt is premiering on Zee Cinema on 22nd October, 2016 at 8PM, I got excited. What fun it would be to watch a Desi Superhero in action! I am all set for it and here are some of the reasons why you wouldn’t want to miss this movie -

My Quirky, Qoofy And Totally Awesome Friend

Image
True friendship stands the test of time. We may not talk for months but the bond is unbreakable. One phone call after three months sets the tone right. And, most importantly, friendship is without any constraint - age, gender and background are meaningless in friendship. We make friends throughout our lives. However, there is a handful of them we cherish. They stand with us through thick and thin. These friends show us the true meaning of trust, care, and fun. Over the last few years, one of my friends has become close to me. Bhawana, she is much younger to me, but we share the same vibes. Age seems irrelevant to our relationship. Earlier we lived in different parts of the country, so, our relationship grew over the phone. We met through a common friend. We connected on social media and later on the phone. When she moved close to my town, we met regularly. It was then, our relationship grew beyond the virtual world. Here are few of the times we had fun and connected like never before …

The Practical Guide to Compare Between Two Jobs

Spoilt for choice - This idiom pops in our minds when we have to choose. We want to choose the best. And the dilemma keeps us on the edge. Though, on the onset having two offers looks tempting, but it comes with confusion. I know from experience that it is a taxing situation. We have to weigh in a lot of factors and arrive at a rational decision or else, we have to bear the consequence of being stuck in a wrong position. Sometimes, one offer is better on the surface and other has things we have been craving for in our professional life. If you are in a fix, make a pro-con list and consider the following factors - Compare Take Home Monthly Salary
We learned this from experience. Don’t look at the pay package. Break all the components and put it under the microscope. When my husband changed his job for the first time after marriage, in the lure of moving to North India, we didn’t pay attention to the take-home salary. His company made a big contribution to PPF and the same amount was dedu…
