Life has been pretty good lately and to add onto it I will be traveling for 8 days. No, not on a business trip for now, but just taking a small holiday. Will be going to the north of India, Punjab and Amritsar visiting both my grandmothers, mom’s mother in Punjab and dad’s mother in Amritsar. Actually tomorrow is my granddad’s first death anniversary and so I wanted to go and see my grandma in Amritsar. I will be leaving on the 30 March, backpacking alone for the first time ever. Have few things and places to visit planned in my mind. I will be taking my laptop along with me, so going to be in touch with you all throughout my journey.
Finally today, after all my friends asking my why I am not there on Instagram got myself an account on Instagram. I must say it’s very addictive. Today the entire day has gone on it, not getting a chance to work at all. I guess at times that’s fine.
Well, will be back with my next post soon.
Yesterday, 17th March we celebrated the festival of colors and love called Holi. The celebrations starts with a Holika Bonfire on the night before Holi where people gather, sing and dance. The next morning is a free-for-all carnival of colors, where everyone plays, chases and colors each other with dry powder and colored water, with some carrying water guns and colored water-filled balloons for their water fight. The frolic and fight with colors occurs in the open streets, open parks, outside temples and buildings. Groups carry drums and musical instruments, go from place to place, sing and dance. People move and visit family, friends and foes, first play with colors on each other, laugh and chit-chat, then share Holi delicacies, food and drinks. In the evening, after sobering up, people dress up, visit friends and family.
It’s a fun festival and I was more excited because was playing after 4-5 years.And this is how I looked by the end of it. I really had an awesome time after a long time. Woke up early and was out to play with friends. By the time I reached home it was late afternoon and was so tired.
Wishing everyone Happy Holi! 🙂
Hi friends, since you all know that currently I am working on an independent project and I needed little help from all of you regarding the same. I am starting up my online travel portal which will display packages of all around the world, having the itinerary, pricing along with the option of customizing the holiday as per requirement. So it’s going to be more of a customizing holiday agency which later on plans to add a lot of different options relating with travel. Since it is at the beginning stage I wanted some help with the suggestions regarding with the name of the agency. I want the name to be little unique. I have couple to names in mind like:
travelerboutique, and so on.
It would be great if you all could suggest some name for the agency as well. It would mean a lot to me. Hoping to see some great names.
Thank You! 🙂
Is it true that marriages are made in heaven? I just got back from attending one of my school friend’s engagement, total traditional one according to their customs. Can’t deny didn’t have fun because these are the only kind of occasions when the entire school gets a chance to meet. It doesn’t matter to us even if we meet like just once a year, we all still never forget to have fun. Some of us keep in touch and meet often, but some meet only occasionally. The engagement just made me think about the question, are marriages really made in heaven especially in this world. We don’t have time for ourselves and now there’s a new trend going on, couples prefer being independent and always ask for space from each other. How does one keeps the relationship going when one feels that he/she wants doesn’t want to talk to the other and doesn’t want to meet the other. How does one keep the spark going when there is no communication?
We tend to downplay the importance of everyday sharing and companionship while giving undue importance to the need for space and independence. Space is good, but you should even try to see that one doesn’t go so much into that space that the gap between the two becomes huge and it gets difficult to get back with each other again. The space shouldn’t be so much that when they meet, they don’t know what to talk about because you have not been talking at all. Why don’t some people understand that? Same way, being independent is good, but you need to understand that at some point of time you are at least emotionally dependent on the other. Then why pretend that you are independent and though. It just gets difficult for the other partner to communicate with you.
Nowadays relationships have become emotionally taxing, that’s what I have heard, but how is it taxing? No one forces someone to get into a relationship in the first place, you know each other and only after that you decide to get into a relationship. Then why blame it on the other all the time ?
So my question remains the same, are marriages still made in heaven, because if they did then you wouldn’t want the need to take sometime off, there wouldn’t be any space for that some space, you wouldn’t feel the need to be emotionally independent. There would have been more room for the need of sharing, companionship, caring, loving, supporting each other, being dependent on each other on the emotional end, you would feel the need to spend as much time as possible together.
