Nine Hills!!


She goes to a nice liquor shop( as the girls can walk easily it is in supermarket)  buys herself a bottle of Nine Hills and comes back.. as they are leaving for a trip and they need wine...


She walks again in the same shop and asks for one Nine hills and another Rivera as she likes Nine Hills and her husband likes Rivera..

Young Man: Lady if you buy two bottle of nine hills i will give you two wine glasses for free.. 
Lady: I am buying two wines one is Rivera and another is nine hills see if you can give me glasses with this.. a spontaneous reply as always she gives...
Young Man: okay take it.. 

she walks out of the shop with a triumph on her face and goes to the car where her husband is waiting and surprised him with glasses..


She walks  again today the same shop...

Lady: Two Bottles of Nine Hills, is your scheme for two free glasses on.. 
Salesperson: Yes Madam, give me 1100/- 
Lady: No you are wrong, i have bought Nine Hills twice earlier and paid 450/-  per Bottle... 

This time the owner who is standing besides lady turns and tells her, Mam i will show you the list and you will pay me for the previous ones also..

Lady: No i will not pay for the previous one but surely have a look at your price list.. 
So with full confidence on him he opens the list and guess what is the price on it... yes you are right 450/-  The lady with a smile on her face tells the owner now give me two bottles for 900/- .. 

The owner tells the sales person to do the same, cuts the price with his pen and make it 550/- and the lady again comes out with a triumph and laughing a lot.. :)

and she is happily narrating the incident to her brother who just met her outside the shop...

Diwali a festival of lights.. I have always loved this festival as it brings joys to all. In my childhood we use to clean our house, visit our relative distribute sweets and get their blessings..

Though now it is different now, different not making clean as main agenda as with full time domestic helps the house is cleaned on daily basis..

Siddharth made this diwali more beautiful by making rangolis himself.


With the help of our front door neighbor they made the flower and his name and then finally decorated with flowers and lights...

He played firecrackers also as he calls it fondly pathake fodne hai...  now a days we eat less of sweets.. it was overall fun visiting friends exchanging gifts, wearing new cloths and eating fruits and dryfruits... below are the lines of the diwali song siddharth learn at school and was singing when he feel like...

diwali aayee diwali aaye.. roshnee layee... aayo diwlai manayee.. aayo diyeen jalayieen

Fabulous day!!


I got a call from Siddharth school, he has 100 + fever, kindly take him home.. The school gets panicked due to swine flu.. and in turn i was worried. We rushed to the hospital and he is normal after two dosage of crocin.. and i am happy to see him back in action and making boat from a balloon..


We were on the way to home from hospital, he saw a ballon wala.. he wanted to buy a ballon. After taking the ballon i was about to start car, he started a conversation with balloon wala..

Siddharth: Bhaiyaa aapko kitne paise bachte hai.. ( how much money you save) 
Balloon wala: looking quite puzzled, as he never expected this question from a five year old kid.. 
Siddharth: again the same question
Balloon wala: yeh saree bech ke ghar chala jatoon hoon.. aur time pass ho jata hai.. aap yeh bansuri loge.. 
Siddharth: Mama le lo.. 
We bought the flute.. then he wished him Happy Diwali. The Balloon wala got so touched that he gave him one extra balloon. 


We came home, Siddharth let's wash hands. 

Me: Siddharth aapko pata hai aaj Global handwash day hai.. 
Siddharth: Mama woh kya hota hai.
Me: Today they are celebrating as hand wash day so people will pludge that they will always wash hands, when come home.. before eating food.. 
Siddharth: Mama kaise..
Me: Jaise gandhi jayanti hota hai.. we celebrate, today Govt has taken the intiavtive.. 
Siddharth: Achaa to aaj govt ka birthday hai.. 

and after this i was just laughing and he also joined me...

SCENE 4 : He wanted to watch the people who are playing with fireworks.. 

Me: Siddharth rule no. 1 , stay away from crackers.. rule no. 2 when they burst out don't touch them.. puchoo kyoon
Siddharth: Kyoonki usme swine flu hota hai.. 
Yeh tumhari meri batein hameshaa yuhi chalti rahein
So after this fabulous day he has gone off to sleep, and i was thinking this post is as fabulous as i have got this award from Nazish Rahman Thanks for the award..

Cute Conversation!!

Siddharth: Mama i want to play at park
Me: Siddharth, you can play but don't spoil your cloths
Siddharth: why? he is always ready with it
Me: We are going to market in few minutes.
Siddharth: ok

After 10 minutes he comes back home his hands and feet are completely in sand... I looked at him and he said innocently.. Kapde to saaf hai na... ( my cloths are clean) 

As always i don't have any answer but my favourite gazal.. 

Bachoon ke nazuk hathoon ko asmaan choo le ne do.. 
Do chaar kitabein pad ke yeh bhee hum jaise ban jayengee

Happiness or Money?


We got the hard earned  money of 80 K back from a big retail store.


We moved to our apartment on Jan13th  2008. This is the only main furniture missing at our home. We thought we will buy it later as the furniture we like costs a lot and our whole focus will be on managing and saving it from our little cute Siddharth. As he may like to do some drawing or run his cars over it..

So it got postponed to make our house more child friendly.. But 28th September was the day we all decided that it’s the time to get this furniture in our home..

Me and Vivek spend the whole day searching and looking for the options.. Siddharth was taken care by a very close friends..

Here we are on this fateful day at the INDIA’ best largest retail store, we both liked it very much. It is costing a bomb but then calculating some permutation and combination we decided to buy it.. We had spent two to three hours to finalize it…  At the last moment when the sales person went to take the papers to fulfill the formality my heartbeat was at its most and the moment I shared with Vivek we both ran to the third floor of the store, to think and rethink our decision. Then Vivek cutely hold my hand and we came back to swipe our plastic card to have this furniture..

We came home and the store promised to deliver it next day. Here it comes on the next day to our home… and my heart gets the biggest thump… as it has taken the most precious space in our room and it is too bulky.. Here comes the second piece and I have two little diamond drops rolling over my cheeks…

The moment Vivek saw this he understood that these are genuine diamonds drop.. so we decided to return it, as we are not liking this at our home. Without bothering about the money, we helped delivery boys to repack and take it back.

Today is the day when we both are feeling happy over the fact that for both of us happiness is the first priority over money…

You must have understood I am taking about which furniture.. yes it is SOFA … which we bought and sent back.. Below is the look of our room without it and I love it… What do you say??

One life live it!!

Joy of Giving!!

We were attending a wedding yesterday night..Siddharth saw a balloonist and wanted to buy a balloon..

I was thinking of the way to get the money, as my wallet was not with me.. Siddharth came and told me Mama i will share the balloon with the boy sitting next to our chair as he saw the other boy requesting his grand mom for the money for balloon..

Here comes our Ram Ban my brother and he handed 50 rupees to Siddharth, i told Siddharth to get the balloon and the change.. he came with a triumph Mama uncle ne gubara free de diya.. as he gave 4 notes of 10 bucks..

The moment he got the balloon, he told me to wait for one minute and i was wondering where this boy is going.. and was glad to see that he has gone to offer the balloon to the other boy.. and they both were playing like they are friends for a long time..

Siddharth gave the joy to the other boy, in the week of giving joy... i was overwhelmed with this gesture of his.. 

aa chalke tujhe main leke chalon ek aissee gagan ke talee
