The Dinner Debacle

For almost a month after we got married, my husband and I were swamped with dinner invitations at one of our many many relatives. I probably cooked two dinners in our first month of marriage, both times because my husband had an upset stomach and had to cancel postpone the plans for the evening.

I don’t know about you, but in my side of the world a plethora of otherwise unknown relatives crawl out of the woodwork during weddings and they try to outdo each other by inviting the newlyweds to the most extravagant meals.

So it was not surprising when Tutan damy husband’s second cousin two times removed – invited us home one evening.

Airtel 4G promises to be the Fastest Network Ever

Like most young people today, I spend most of my time online. My smartphone is choc a bloc with social media apps and any spare minute I have I like spending it online; checking social media, playing online games or just surfing the net.

So, anyone who is so attached to the internet as I am will tell you that there is nothing as annoying as slow internet. I subscribe to the highest speed Wi-Fi possible at home and even though I have a pretty decent data pack, I have been missing the 4G speed which I had become so used to while working abroad.

I for one am pretty excited about the nationwide launch of Airtel 4G in India. Let’s have a look at what we already know about the new service rolled out by Airtel India.

My Blank Canvas

My room is a blank canvas.
No really, my bed room is actually totally devoid of furniture. Having spent most of my life living away from home – boarding school, residential college, PG and shared apartments – it’s hardly surprising that when my parents bought an apartment in the city they did not furnish my room. Given that we hardly spend time in the city – average two days per month – and my parents had no intention of moving to the city for at least a couple more years, mom wanted to keep the furnishing to just functional for now. Way easier to clean up that way I tell you. You cannot imagine the amount of dust an empty house can accumulate, especially one by the river as mighty as the Brahmaputra. So all that the apartment consists of is: one fully furnished bedroom (my parent’s), one partially furnished bedroom (my sister’s), a functional kitchen and a dining table.
Now by some crazy twist of fate, I landed in the city last month and have taken up residence in the apartment. So, I now face the daunting task of adding colors to my blank canvas of a room. Needless to say I have spent an inordinate amount of time trolling the internet looking for inspiration, most of it a tad unrealistic, but then did not someone say ‘in dreams begin realities.’
