Shopping For Wedding Begins Finally!

Off late nothing, but now got something to bugger you up! Well, was quite busy in shopping and making lists which is yet not over. Aah, how cumbersome is the task of making shopping list for wedding and when it is your own wedding then the task becomes all the more crucial and important.

How strange it is when a girl gets married she has to buy everything right from a needle to furniture. Last week went down to Home Store in Pacific Mall, Kaushambi, to check latest furniture designs and get the estimate.

Now, leave July, four more months to go for my wedding. Lord, I have to do lots of shopping, arrangements, packing and blah blah blah….

Went to Nalli Silk Sari Store in Connaught Place; I was dumbstruck with the wide assortment of silk variations and designs. Ranging from lacs to thousands, there seems to be no end to designs, patterns, and variety of silk. Tassar Silk, Kota silk, Banarsi, chanderi, and on and on…

It was around 5:30 PM on Saturday July 18 2009 when we were in Connaught Place (henceforth CP) hunting for good stilettos when suddenly huge crowd hustled around the Levi’s Store. My friend, Amit asked police and found out that a bomb is planted in the Palika Bazar. Palika was evacuated in few minutes and the whole park over Palika and parking along with the base met Bazaar was sealed and police was posted at strategic points. Bomb was found out around 6-6:30 PM and diffused successfully.

Not even a single news channel broadcasted/telecasted the incident. Not even a slight stir… weird

Bought two Silk saris- one is of golden color and the other is of sky blue.

Now see the shift

I was talking about shopping trip then suddenly narrated bomb incident and then again swiftly I retraced my steps back to shopping details…

What did you get?

This is LIFE… Life in Delhi,-completely different from any other city of India. Everything, almost every disaster struck the capital city with same force as it does to other places yet life here has beaten hell out of every human that nothing troubles them now. Incidents takes place and gets removed from the memory after few hours. Only those who have suffered personal loss wail… only for hours very few…

Delhi- The most expensive city

Delhites- Excessively Spendthrifts

Every second person in Delhi is deep down in the debts yet he is out on streets and bazaars

With every passing day, capital is flooding with humans when the most desired wish is to have rain- good rain…

Believe me it’s not only the case of Delhi, but everywhere. We humans are the main cause of pollution, choking up of fresh water resources, poisoning life giving air, degradation of ecosystem overall.

Do I need to mention what all can be done and by every single individual to make life and living better?

Kehte hain

“bund bund se ghada bharta hai”

Every single drop makes an ocean…. Then, why not every one of us contributes? Even a small effort from our side can make a difference- be it a smallest one but it will be. Isn’t it?

Oh, I need to make a list…. See You Later… J

Hey, by the way please drop in some suggestion for shopping if possible… will catch ‘em …
