Now that my nose has swollen to the size of a potato, I decided to take off from office today and rest at home. Surrounded by my gadgets, pillows, double blanket … and a spicy hot noodle soup!! Ahh Bliss !!
I have a pesky little sister and a peskier brother. We three managed to live under the same roof for 20 years, without causing any major injuries. Well stitches don’t count, do they? Being the eldest it was my duty to be bossy and walk around with an air of superiority, throwing random commands once in a while – “Paani laao” , “Pair dabao”, “Ye Maggi much dede Samba!!”
Ever read all those meme and funny Big Sister Quotes, yup that’s me. Right here. They lovingly called me “Daakuni”, female version of Daaku (Bandit).
It’s been over two years since I met them. Sometimes, on video calls I suddenly realise how much they have grown. And that I have missed being a part of it.
Last week was pretty lazy, I could manage only 120 minutes of yoga. Sydney winter has got the better of me, cold and congestion for the past two weeks. But I learnt something – don’t overcompensate by trying Deepika Padukone’s awesome dance moves after leg workout. You can count exactly how many muscles are there in your bum area the next morning.
After reading comments on Anushka’s tweet and an article on MenXp, my heart sinks further to see the demeaning behaviour of people on internet. We just got one little life, totally insignificant when compared with the age of universe. Yet somehow during that insignificant time we have managed to say the vilest of things, to become the crudest of life forms. It hurts to think that even after being capable of love and spreading happiness, we decide to propagate hatred in all ways possible.
It doesn’t kill to be a nice person you know!!
