I am BACK, I am going to COLLEGE and I am HAPPY!! :)

Hey People!!

Firstly, i am so sorry for going all MIA for the past 2-3 months. Actually, I had my entrance exams for various law colleges. I am happy to tell you all that my hard-work actually paid off and my year of sabbatical turned out to be a success indeed. I am so damn thrilled!! :) I got into a very reputed college - UPES, Dehradun where i am going to pursue BBA-LLB Hons. and for the the next 5 years Dehradun is going to be my home. Isn't it wonderful?? :D Yippee!!! I am going there tomorrow but i will still keep on Blogging -- ALWAYS and FOREVER. <3
I am finally entering my college life. I am like so excited!! LOL! :) Till now, I've always heard people talking about their college lives. Now at least, even I'll have something to tell everybody. Though, i am feeling a little sad about going far away from home for the first time... I will miss loving and fighting with my parents and friends, my grandpa, my home sweet home and of course, BHOPAL. But i guess, you've to learn to be independent and on your own some day. Better sooner than later. :)
Since we are talking about college, a very dear blogger friend of mine from the VERY FAMOUS FICTITIOUS FASHION finished college just a few weeks ago and she looked gorgeous in the photos she posted on her blog. She is also holding two fabulous giveaways on her blog. Check them out! Hurry!

Wish me luck for my future college endeavors. :) And I promise, I won't go MIA ever again. Even if i do, not for this long!! :D Until then...

WHY??? :(

Hello Dear Bloggers!! :) Okay, so this post is definitely NOT about female ranting... Rather, it is an honest question that i often ask myself whenever i read about atrocities against people, especially women, in the newspapers or on the television. Some days back, a fellow blogger, The Delhi Fashion Blogger, wrote a post which inspired me to write something similar to what she wrote! :)
We all know that in the recent weeks, the newspapers were littered with the news of rape incidents. The victims, sadly, also included girls not more that 16 or 18 years of age.
It will be absolutely excruciating for me to even imagine the pain and suffering that those girls went through and the scars on their hearts which will NEVER fade away with time... I often ponder as to what kind of people are we living with?? Our fellow human beings... What kind of a person can cause such harm and do such horrible things to a woman? How can he possibly live with himself after committing such a blunder? HOW?? AND WHY? :(
"All men are the same" --- We happen to hear this a LOT. In fact, when i am myself frustrated with someone who belongs to the opposite sex, even i think the same. I guess, reality is far different. When in fact -- All men are NOT the same. Some not only love their women and care about them, but also respect their individuality and their being. Such kind of men are what you call REAL MEN! Being chauvinistic and suppressing women is NOT AT ALL a proof of their manhood. Far from it.
It's not that it's always the women who suffer. Definitely not. Men also suffer. But comparatively, the women suffer more. After all, male fetuses are not killed after an amniocentesis [ A test to know the sex of the child ] It is mostly, the female gender who get harassed and raped.
Forget the rape incidents, we all know about BABY FALAK who was merely what?? Just 2 years old?? She was brutally battered and was on the verge of dying when she was brought to AIIMS. Doesn't this make you sick?? It surely makes me SICK! How can someone be so ruthless with a child? I know the 14-year old girl who is responsible for this barbarism was herself frustrated because she was entangled in the shackles of prostitution, but that frustration does not give her a right to almost kill an innocent gift from God. How can people be so inhuman? So much so for the Right to Equality. I am not saying that women are perfect and it's only the men who make women suffer. Sometimes it is the other way round too. I request you all not to be judgmental just because the tone of my post is a bit woman-centric. I am speaking for all the people who suffer irrespective of their gender.
Because i am a law enthusiast, i often read many case studies. The one that i want to mention is the Aruna Shanbaug Case. I am sure most of you are aware of what happened to Miss Shanbaug. Just because she filed a complaint against a fellow colleague in her hospital, she paid and is still paying a terrible price for it. She was not only raped, but sodomized, beaten up and hence, was left to be brain dead and cheated out of life. How barbaric. :X She was a beautiful nurse, who had her future planned out with a handsome doctor fiance by her side. Little did she know while planning it all, that she will NEVER EVER be able to live the life she wanted for herself. The scoundrel who was responsible for all of this was not even booked for rape!! I mean, seriously!!!
Such kind of incidents make you realize that the world we live in, comprises of SUCH sick people, who don't even deserve to be called people, but animals!

It saddens me whenever i hear of such incidents... It saddens me whenever i think about their pain and suffering... It saddens me that such things happen and such people exist amongst us. Moreover, it makes me wonder --- That could have been ME or as a matter of fact ANY ONE OF US!

I thank God that i have such a wonderful family and camaraderie beside me. But that still does not change my question ---- WHY??? :(

P.S. --- I am sorry for a late post. I was not well and was busy studying so could not come up with any post sooner. And also i am sorry for not publishing an OOTD post. Next time -- FOR SURE. As far as my mini-giveaway is concerned that i mentioned in my last post, the moment i reach 75 followers i will host a giveaway! Right now i have 65 followers. 10 more to go. :)

Giveaway Winner and My Parents' 21st Wedding Anniversary! :)

Hello my dear readers!! :)
I am like REALLY happy!! Can you believe i won two giveaways??? Yes, not ONE but TWO! :) I am so so so happy! After all, it's not everyday that you win 2 giveaways. ;) And that too amazing ones! :D For this immense happiness, i would like to thank Nikita from The Shopaholic Diaries and Akanksha from Fictitious Fashion! Love you both and your blogs. :))
This is not the only reason behind my happiness... :P The second reason is that on 27th January. 2012, we celebrated my parents' 21st Wedding Anniversary! :) It was so much fun! My cousin brother and my sister-in-law also came so the whole family was together this time. The entire last week was lovely. We went to this amazing Chinese Restaurant CHINATOWN and had yummy Chinese delights. I am going to go there again with my BFF soon so you can expect some pictures and a post on it in the near future. We also went to see AGNEEPATH --- A WOW movie guys. It has violence in it and that too a considerable amount of it so i am not quite sure whether everyone will like it or not. But I sure did! :) Everybody's performance is commendable and the CHIKNI CHAMELI song adds up to the fabulosity of this movie. Karan Johar and Karan Malhotra have done an amazing job. You know, in real sense, this is what a remake should be like. Not just a ditto copy of the original movie, but, with the same storyline --- something new. :) I LOVED it!

It was a fun-filled week for me! On my parents' anniversary we went to this lovely Italian Restaurant known as LA KUCHINA. They have some lovely Lebanese delicacies as well. In totality, i had a BLAST! I hope y'all had a fun week too. :)

OKAY! Now for the announcement -- I am going to host a Mini-Giveaway soon!! :) Yipee!!! And my next post will be an OOTD post. Wish me all the luck guys. Have a great week ahead. :) And yeah, before going i want to tell you guys about this amazing giveaway from Fashion and Cookies. It is an amazing giveaway with goodies from Romwe! :) Enter HERE!

And We Will Remain Best Friends Forever!! :)

On 16th January. 2012, it was my best friend's 18th birthday. ( She's 94 born but we were together in the same class in school. :P ) I call her Nimzi! We have been best friends since the end of 8th standard! Long time no? Time flies by quickly i guess. It seems just yesterday when we became friends in the school choir practices! And our journey together, since then, has been like Super-Duper Awesome and i hope it remains the same forever. [ I know it will ] Me and N, just can't survive without each other.
Anyways, so coming back to her birthday -- We had a blast together like always but this time it was special, maybe because we were meeting after a long time.. We went to Db City Mall ( Dainik Bhaskar Mall ) and ate our favorite Domino's Pizza and thrir oh-so-yummy garlic bread. Then we headed straight to Chocolate Factory and had pastries with extra hot chocolate sauce and vanilla ice-cream. Yummy!! And in between all the eating, we talked! A LOT! Lol! Typical us i guess!! :P
We clicked so many pictures but my camera broke before i could upload the pictures. So, instead of that, i am posting a picture of us from the year 2010 taken by another friend @ CCD. :)

Me and N --- Together Forever!! :)

I always say to her --- She is the sister God forgot to give me! :)) I absolutely love this picture!! So this was about me and my BFF! :)

Also i would like to tell all my readers about yet another smashing giveaway!

Fictitious Fashion is holding a fabulous giveaway for all her readers who reside in INDIA! She is an amazing blogger. Make sure to enter HERE!
I am definitely keeping my fingers crossed. I hope to win this one! :)

By the way, my next post will be about an OOTD most probably. If it's not then it'll be in the next to next post. Whatever the post number an OOTD post is coming soon. I think i am ready to venture into the world of Fashion Blogging. But my blog will not exclusively be about Fashion though, let me warn you beforehand. Lol! :P It is and will always be about everything that i like. And i LOVE fashion! SO yeah, you can expect some posts about it! :D Until next time stay tuned!! :)
