Invented for...

i know! i know! i had promised to write about the dance show but i felt that wat i am writing abt now is more appropriate in the present context (for heaven's sake... don't ask wat the context is!.. coz even i dont know!).

the tagline of the company i work for reads 'Invented for ....'. now if u recall, id written or rather blogged abt something to do with choices n all... in that id rather sadly n indirectly mentioned how very sad i was to b in the company i was in. today, after 1 month and 18 days, i have come to realize that even i am pretty much into the company lik so many others. it dawned on me when my mom sat smiling and caught me red-handed when i was quite innocently engrossed in describing "our company" n "our products". for all i know, i guess my mom was more affected than anyone else (except me of course) by the fact that i dint get to go to a company of my choice. hence the smile on mom's face becomes the most important line in the whole article.

the ppl, the culture, the atmosphere, the warmth, the change have modified my view n most importantly the CQ (contentment quotient) in my life despite some 'fire scares'. thr s restlessness no doubt but its under control now. i get to control when n whr i get restless. so that's pretty good right? :)

hi there!
long tym! :)

one word that any person.. male or female would associate with a female is 'shopping'.
(if its a girl reading this article.. then m sure thrz this wide smile of approval n if its a guy, ud probably b thinking "huh! tell me bout it!")

i work in a company which is right opposite one of the foremost and popular malls in the city. so at any point of my working life, if thrz some free time, u know whr ud find me.

each time i enter the mall, its a new experience (yeah! despite the mall being the same one, crowd- the usual one, company also more or less the same). whether i enter the mall to eat/ shop/ window shop/ accompany shoppers, i find it different and exciting.

today, for a change, i went shopping... festival shopping! now by that, i don't mean to say that i went to buy clothes for myself.. i went to get the things needed for the festival (flowers, fruits, bangles, etc). so y the big deal abt this shopping?? haven i done it b4??? nah... nothin lik that... iv gone b4 but generally my mom does all this. this time round, mom s a lil unwell. so i had to go.

it was a different experience again coz it had been really long since i went to do some non-clothing shopping. this shopping is different from mall shopping. here u get to see variety! u want flowers? u get to see 10 different sellers trying to sell the same variety of flowers for nearly the same price as his fellow seller! btw u have to bargain else u r sure to hav an empty wallet!

since id gone with dad, bargaining was diff coz somehow dads dont lik nor hav the patience for it. v bought 3 types of roses n some yellow 'shaavanthige'. so that being done, next we went inside the market. oh my God!! kya bheed tha yaar!!! anyway coming bak to the point... next on our agenda was 'villed ele' and 'bella'. here thr was no scope for selection coz mom had told us which shop v shud get em from. dad had got fruits in the afternoon. so v were more or less done with the 'shopping'.

one last thing v had to buy were bangles for me... id taken my dupatta along to choose the right color but somehow, none of the designs were appealing. so that was shopping!

since the title reads 'shopping', id lik to do some justice to it by saying that the best part about shopping... irrespective of the reason behind it is that it is refreshing! (guys- "good Lord! not again!"/ grils-"u said it girl!") when i left home, i was in a weird submissive mood but by the time i came back, wohoo!! wat a change! i was all smiles!! :)

so that's it abt 'shopping'!

for those who expected more... "sorry.. i got a lil distracted as i was engrossed in 'Just Dance' when i was at the crucial stage of the article".
for the rest... "ll bug u with more! next one is on 'Just Dance'!" :)

so long then.
shubharatri! :)
