Crazy Ramblings !

Its been a while since I came online,No while writing this blog,I actually havent been online either.It will be a couple of days before I do so.


Eid al Fitr has come to an end and I have had the busiest weeks ever.Entertaining friends all the way through.Am exhausted,was hoping to catch up on some sleep but then after another phone call,we had to wake up and be ready for friend to come over.And by the time,we bid Ta-tas and Bye byes,the day had come to an end.

Its been defintely a week since I visited facebook and checked any of my emails.Makes me realise how dependent Im on this internet.Im clearly addicted.A bad sign of a jobless person,a sign of ample free time or a sign of having some sort of company no matter what time -day or night.

There are so many blogs to read and so many things to pass judgement and comment on and I am just not able to.Waiting to hook up to some DSL connection but just havent found the time.

So Im sorry if anyone is wondering,why doesnt she read them or why havent we heard from her.I have been so darn busy entertaining guests literally the entire week with no break.Tired,exhausted,cooked a lot,washed a lot and finally done with it all.


One of the most wonderful visits have been one from my sister.A surprise viist on her own with my one and only nephew.I couldnt get enough of him and I kissed him and hugged him like there was no tomorrow.To see your own brother or sister's kids,wow ! Its such a wonderful feeling.To have them love you back,is such a breath taking feeling.Its like nourishment to your soul,to receive such worthiness,such love.


Isnt it,there can be nothing better than the drug of being loved.It can cure you of illness,it can make you feel free and attached all at the same time.................

And the sweets.The tradition of giving sweets in all forms during these occassions.What can I say? Its been showering chocolates,cakes and doughnuts.My gosh...I think i can poop and pee sugar for the coming fortnight.Its like I can feel whipped cream and jellies and nuts and OMG......Its super pumping my heart.I think its a good thing to do,when you visit someone for the first time,its better to bring some bounty.I mean like cakes or sweets.Never go empty handed to meet someone or when you have been invited for the first time or when like eid ka chand,you visit a freind or relative,once in a while.My parents used to do it and now my husband and I do so.If not sweets,take dome deli items..like puffs or o'douvres( not sure of the spelling).

I think Im gonna be sick..I feel some whipped cream brimming on the top layer of my tummy.That means I had a little too much.Day before,I was puking my heart out coz some BBQ meat n chicken didnt get along too well with my tummy.I have a tough tummy but my medications for my various bimariyaas,compromises the steel layer within.

Just watched the "Falak pe" song from "TAshan".How skinny does this woman get? Size zero.Is that even a legal dress size? ...it seems unappealing to me...how do the guys feel? My hubby didnt find her appealing ...if you wondered ask your hubby ! I think A little chubby woman is far more sexy.Jalebi bai......jalebi bai.....

Back to listening to songs again...The whole of ramadan ,I tried to refrain from listening to them as less as I can.But now Im lovin' it.It makes me feel joyous and I go footloose.Music is like a drug...why go on hashish or whatever the name is,when you can close your eyes and forget every God damn thing that is out there to ruin your peace of mind.It calms me when my mind is uneasy,when Im sad,when Im happy.I miss dancing,not that I have completely quit..but ye dil,KAmbakht jaldi thaka deta hai.I love when someone gives me company.Why is there an age to do everything? Common dialogue - " Ye koi umar hai? ","kya tum abhi bachi ho ye karne ke liye?" or like my brother puts it," Stop dancing like an ass at every tune that hits your elephant ears".

"Aane wale pal ek sapna hai" from Phir teri kahani yaad ayi.You should listen to this song.It one of my romantic favourites.It a beautiful song.Whn I listen to this song,I go back to this place.Im 20 yrs old again,Im walking along panambur beach in mangalore just half an hour before sun begins to sunset.Im in a black dress,have long hair,have anklets and with a boyfriend.You would imagine Im reminiscing some past memory,Im not.HAd a boycut,had no boyfriend and had been to the beach with my girlfriends in the peak afternoon sun for a swim, after bunking chem classes, and had not heard this song back then.But this daydream sets in everytime I listen to this song.I dont think the movie has this sequence either.Some songs when I listen,I imagine myself in the monsoon in a garden.Im a romantic,yes...A nutcase,totally...A daydreamer,always.

Reminds me of this english flick I once saw long time back.There is a new technology introduced that a person can go into alternate reality ,to get away from the day's trouble.A fantasy vacation in your own mind.It was a flop but I loved the idea.

Beauty secrets : Multani Mitti

I was 20 when during my monthly eye brow shaping,my beautician was like you should try a facial.But I refused As my skin has been always too sensitive and the marks of anything and everything from simple burns to blemishes takes years to fade off.That's when she told me about multani mitti.As usual I didn't pay any attention initially but she was like,you can clean your face weekly with this mud pack made with rose water and your skin would be simply clean.I tried it whenever my eyes caught hold of the pack in my cupboard.Then 10 years later,it again became a staple in my cupboard but now I use it every week.

What is Multani mitti?

Its a type of mud,smells like clean mud and feels like mud on your skin.I reckon if one uses chemicals like bleach on the face,this would be a lovely soothing alternative in your beauty regimen.

I buy this chunk of of this rock like thing and sit at home and break them into small pieces and grind them in a mortar and pestle.I was scared to use my gr…

Foods to avoid if you have rheumatoid arthritis (RA)

Eating fruits and vegetables may help to prevent rheumatoid arthritis. A study from the Mayo Clinic showed that women who ate diets higher in fruits and vegetables were less likely to develop rheumatoid arthritis. This study doesn't show that eating fruits and vegetables will improve the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis; however, everyone should eat at least five servings of fruits and vegetables every day.

There are some foods that may help you feel better by reducing inflammation. Research shows that omega-3 fatty acids may help to reduce inflammation. Choose foods with healthy fats such as fish, walnuts, soy, canola oil, flax seeds and pumpkin seeds. Here's a list of my favorite anti-inflammatory foods.

Fats and Oils. Omega-3 fatty acids are found in cold-water oily fish,flax seedscanola oil and pumpkin seeds. Consumption ofmonounsaturated fatty acids found in olive oil, avocados, and nuts has been linked to reduced risk of cardiovascula…

Camel

You must be wondering what the heck has she written about urine.Is it one the tests she had taken or some disease.

Actually yesterday some friend of my husband told him that eating camel meat stew is beneficial for people with muscle and bone problems and that very soon he would make me feast on it.I personally love camel meat,its tastier,lighter than beef,its just a beautiful meat but its a little more time to cook than the normal meat.So I thought why not find out the benefits of camel meat and while doing so,came across this article about camel urine benefits.

Don't go yuck people,I think in India,people bathe in cow urine when they have some skin infection.My brother and I did this as very small kids.We had been on a holiday to India and developed some skin eczema or chicken pox or measles....so as usual my granny said try this as well when the western medications failed.I know camel meat may not be available in India as commonly as out here but there is nothing wrong in know…
