Life goes on :-)

I am sorry! I stayed away from my blog for a long time this time, more than a month. So many things happened during this break. Delhi went out to vote, the Indo-Pak match, the grand Republic day celebrations etc etc. My life hasn’t changed much, though it has just been an okay-okay sort of month for me. Mr. Husband broke his bone and underwent a surgery, and was bed-stuck for almost 10 days. He will take almost another month to recover. This instance introduced me to the “life in a hospital”. Just like our offices these days, the hospital too had no day, and no night. Though the staff was nice to talk to and glad to help, just the feeling of being in a hospital can be depressing enough to close half of the senses. There was an old lady who would chat with me during her graveyard shift and share some life-stories over a cup of tea. I loved her, she ensured I had all I wanted…tea in the middle of the night, chilled water, snacks etc etc (enough of the double “etcs” huh). Anyways, Mr. Husband is recovering and I am sure we will be soon back to our old days!

 There hasn’t been any road trip since our Rajasthan trip and I guess it will take a while to hit the roads once again.

 On a cheerful note, we celebrate our marriage anniversary on Valentine’s day. This time around, we decided we would listen to each other talk about all that happened in these years. Also, there was some good food, flowers, some movies and some heart to heart talks. So it’s a lesson learnt, sometimes, things do not turn out to be the way you planned. Just like sunny days, you might have to face some dark days. You should be ready to adapt to any situation to put into. Not every day is a fairytale; there are sometimes bumps on the road. Sometimes, the journey is complicated but the destination is sweet. Sometimes, the journey is a walk on flowers, while the destination may not be able to win your heart. And you are seriously lucky if both the journey and destinations turn out to be “super-awesome”. And also, you have the entire world if you got each other’s back!

Sharing some pictures of the beautiful flowers that ended up in my flower vase, no doubt, they brighten up my world. Hope you had a great month so far, and wishing you all many love-filled months ahead! Share some thoughts!

Rajasthan: A DREAM (Part 3: Sand and the fun)

_DSC5976

Once upon a time, the Thar desert was under the sea!!! Whoa…can you believe it? It totally shook my world. There was a time during the trip to the desert when I imagined that I was walking under the water and saw an endless view of life under water. Things looked the same, nothingness spread endlessly, except for the color. The imaginary color was blue while in reality, it was golden.

As per wiki, the Thar Desert, also known as the Great Indian Desert or Marusthali (Land of the dead), is a large, arid region in the northwestern part of the Indian subcontinent that forms a natural boundary between India and Pakistan. It is the world’s 9th largest subtropical desert. This desert spreads over about 2,340,000 kms (900,000 sq miles), with 85% in India and the remaining part in Pakistan. It covers more than 2,000,000 km2 (770,000 sq miles) in Rajasthan and extends into Gujarat, Punjab, and Haryana. Continue reading
