Review by Zack Brandit

I've joined this Blogger's community called Blogcatalog and there I saw that quite a few bloggers participated in a discussion and the title of the discussion drew me towards it. It was called...

"Tell Me Your Blog and I will Tell You How It's Perceived By Your Readers"
And I couldn't resist myself and I posted a small note to Zack Brandit (who was reviewing everyone's blog) and requested him to review mine. I aslo asked him if I could post the review on the blog to which he agreed. So here's the complete review (unedited!) posted with full permission!!! And I have to say; he's got the right idea about this one!! :-)

Voices of Mumbai!

Today's post is dedicated to a few of my friends and helping them out. They have been planning to start something on their own but the pool of ideas that'll work has sort of dried up! So I thought, why not ask our fellow Mumbaikars and get to know what the city and the people really want so that we can do something good out there for everyone.

Conversations with a 6 year old!

So my six year old cousin was here for a few days and she’s just as chirpy and talkative as I am; the only difference being that she chirps with an accent! So here are a few snippets from the awesomely entertaining conversations I had with her!

As soon as I picked up Mami and the kids at the airport, Shwetha ran up to me and gave me a big tiny hug (she barely reaches up till my stomach!) and smiled! Vishnu on the other hand is not the kind who shows affection so openly and greeted me and Tatha (my maternal grandfather who was also at the airport) with a smile and a ‘hi.

Results were finally announced yesterday about half an hour before noon and they were almost as I had expected. I did not clear either of the groups. I have been exempted from writing one paper since I scored above sixty in that one but will have to write the rest of the seven papers. That hurt!

I was hoping that I would pass the first group at least and I did pass all papers individually but did not make the required aggregate. But hey, as someone told me, one paper less is also a silver lining.

Mixed Emotions

As I mentioned in my previous post, I am going through a lot of mixed emotions right about now and I can’t sleep. I used to spend sleepless nights exactly two months ago when I was appearing for my exams when I was sleeping only once in two days for twelve hours straight!

I can’t believe that it has been two months already since I finished my exams. It has felt like time has just flown by! Those fifteen days of exams felt like fifteen long years and these two months passed like two weeks??? Isn’t that unfair??

Jailed at Home!!!!!

We were all so tired after Nagi Chacha’s 50th birthday party that getting up on Sunday morning was an effort especially when my body was aching so badly (which I later realized was due to all the dancing and head banging that I had done the previous night.)

Rudransh, who was having fever since the day of Raksha Bandhan and chachi; who was also suffering from fever for the last few days were not able to make it to the party. Even Munna chacha was feeling a little feverish by the time he left the party.
