Hello everyone!

Welcome aboard the #BlogchatterProjects. I have barely been pulled into this wagon at the last moment (ya, much like the DDLJ climax) and here I am with my stuff on the menu. People have come up with such awesome projects on social and informative topics but mine is a bit old-school.

I have compiled a poetic bouquet of all the verses and poems that have been hovering in 15cover817EfrontRound1my mind (and spilling onto my blog from time to time) and have managed to get it published. “मन मन्थन: एक काव्य संग्रह” It is not just my brainchild; ‘coz you can feel my heart and soul too in this one. So it is much more than that. I am here to take my book to the eyes and ears it deserves. It may not be a huge success yet but for me it is nothing short of that. To be able to come up with it and getting it published is already a success story for me.

Hey guys!

I have been away for a while (thank you if you had noticed) and the reasons have been many. In fact, more than I care to count. And these few days have changed my life forever as I have been promoted to the post of father from husband. Yes, it’s a boy. I have been blessed with a beautiful baby and I couldn’t have asked for more.

Piku’s 1st Diwali 🙂

के  धूप  से  तपती  धरती  पे,

ख़ुदा  कुछ  यूँ  मेहरबान  हो  गया;

खिलाया  इस  बगिया  में  एक  फूल,

और  मैं  बाग़बान  हो  गया ||

He is the best thing that has happened to me, like ever and the feeling is too flamboyant to contain in my heart and it will eventually seep onto my blog.

He has my eyes and her smile,

A bit of us both, with his own style;

My cutie, my love, my childhood and fun,

The trophy of my life, my darling, my son!!

                                              -doc2poet

Also, New Year is coming and I have a few plans for my blog and I am sure it will be exciting. For now, thank you for all your support and keep in touch for more.

See you soon (and hopefully more often)

Hey Guys,

It is the festival of lights, color and sweets and it just got sweeter ‘coz I have been blessed with a baby boy. The mood is set, the time is right and @blogadda has struck the perfect cord yet again. So, here is a beautiful gift for all the travel bugs out there. Here it goes:

I am a member with Royal Resorts @ https://royalresorts.co.in/ and they have awesome properties all over the world. Recently, I booked a trip to Bali for a friend but he will not be able to make it. So, I have decided to offer it to anyone out there for free who is interested . You may gift this to your loved ones too…but make sure to get the guest certificate in their name.
Note: These properties are only available for members but you may visit there on my invite. So, it is a one time opportunity. Don’t miss it:-)
The joy of giving: Gift, hope, smile, promise, love or even yourself.
Here are the conditions:

1. The booking is for 7N/8D at Royal Candidasa, Bali for a couple.   http://www.royalresorts.com.au/indonesia/royal-candidasa . However, you may choose to stay for a shorter duration also and considering the discount it will still be a good deal.
2. Date of stay: 3rd Dec,2016 to 10th Dec, 2016. However, the dates may be rescheduled but subject to availability and an additional fee may be applicable.
3. A guest certificate in the name of the traveler with all terms and conditions will be issued.
4. It is available only as a one-time offer for free for the complete stay. However, you may have to pay  fee for issuing guest certificate (may be up to 10,000 INR)
5. It does not include airfare/visa or any other commodity not mention here. It only includes stay at the resort.
Interested candidates kindly leave your details in comments and I will reach out for you.
Thank you 🙂

                 There are some people in life that make you laugh a little louder, smile a little bigger and live life to the fullest. They balance our tipsy-turvy lives, add a bit of tang and fun, offer a shoulder to cry and most of all, keep the party going. They are the wonderful, the shining and everlasting FRIENDS. Friendship marks our life even more deeply than love. Love may sometimes degenerate into obsession but friendship is never anything but sharing. Sharing love, time, smiles, grief and anything to everything. We may find a friend in our soul mate, kids, parents, colleagues or even boss. What matters is that you find one. And I have been lucky enough to have met wonderful friends almost everywhere I happen to be.

कहते  हैंअच्छे  दोस्त  यूँ  ही  नहीं  मिला  करते ,

पर  उसने  ये  दामनकुछ  इस  तरह  सजाया  है ;

के  हर  मोड़  पर  मिले  नायाब  दोस्त ,

और  हर  एक  में  जैसेवो  ख़ुद  ही  समाया  है ||

                It has been too long to remember when we actually came close but one thing is certain that it was destined to happen. It may have happened when we shared our tiffins in class 3, when we played classroom cricket in class 8, went movies together in class 12, fought for each other, stayed up all night for studying, those 12am birthdays, 4am walks and tea, our marriages, and now even kids. I don’t exactly remember when we became BFFs from just friends but I am glad we did. I have been friends with my schoolmates since class 3 and collegemates from 2003 and now they are a part of every small or big event by default.

के  इनसे  ही  दोस्ती  की  पहचान  है,

तकल्लुफ   नहीं, कोई  राज़  नहीं,

के  इनसे  ही  खिलती  मुस्कान  है,

शुक्रिया    खुदा  है  तेरा,

के  इन  लकीरों  मे  लिखा  इनका  नाम  है ||

                 As much as I adore friendship I love anything that celebrates it. Movies and TV have been a rock-star in this celebration. I loved the movies Dil Chahta Hai and Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara which showed us the other side of friendship. Harry Potter series is another one that I love for reasons more than just celebrating friendship but I’ll keep it for another post. Another such series is about to start today on Zee TV. For the first time on Indian television, a fun-filled chat show Vivo Smartphone presents Yaaron Ki Baraat (http://www.ozee.com/shows/yaaron-ki-baraat) co-powered by Amazon.in and Brooke Bond Red Label will put celebrity friendships to test through a series of fun challenges and tasks. Isn’t it great!! Celebrating real life bonds of our reel life stars on our very own silver screens in the comfort zones of our drawing rooms.

The  fun, laughter  and  small  talks,

The  road  trips  and  late  night  walks,

You  gave  meaning  to  everything  I  knew,

Rejuvenated  my  life,

Wanting  nothing  in  lieu,

With  you, my  life  is  like  a  grand  fest,

You  are  my  buddies, you  are  the  best…

                                                                      -doc2poet

                 This is going to be a grand show with celebrity overdose and a laugh riot with Ritesh Deshmukh & Sajid Khan as hosts.  The first stars to feature on the show are none other than the greatest of greats BigB himself and the tough guy Shatrugan Sinha. Don’t miss the show tonight at 8:00 PM on Zee TV. Visit here http://www.ozee.com/shows/yaaron-ki-baraat if you want to know more about the show. Be happy and mount the fan wagon for the show. See you tonight 🙂
