Ok !! Enough of the rona dhona ... I'm myself Bored of my mood and all that comes with it, so what better way to distract myself than write about some of the happiest moments in my life !!! Here goes ...

* When my brother was born. 10 years younger than me, he's my first baby ( Don't tell Him that !! ) .

* When I won a fabric painting contest at age 14 ( I did Not see that coming ... )

* When my Grandfather said I dance like Madhuri Dixit ( Him paying a compliment was a biggie in itself ;) )

* Getting up late and watching TV with mom like lazy bums.

* When we found my brother after he was lost for more than 3 hours in the busiest part of Mumbai ( for Mumbaiyaas , that's Shoppers Stop, Andheri ) in 97 .

* When my brother won an academic award in the whole of Gulf region.

* When I went roaming around in Khandala, it was raining and we were having bhajiyas.

* When I was the only one to get an increment one year into the job.

* The moment a few days after my engagement when I looked at my husband and felt " He's the one " .

* The days of my marriage. I had a fun wedding, laughing dancing all the way.

* My hubby's expression when I gave him our first anniversary gifts and his 2nd bday that we celebrated together.

* When my hubby gifted me an engraved jewellry box this anniversary with words that had me in tears ( I truly wasn't expecting anything :)) )

* Walking around in the rain with my hubby sweetest, getting wet after watching Jab We Met. ( He's such a sport I tell u lolzzz ) .

* Going snow tubing in Pocono. It was Fantabulous.

* When I realized that Libraries in US are Free and the number of books you can check out is Unlimited. lolzzzz

* Each time I cook something new and it turns out proper, tasting good.

* When someone in my Online world touches me with their kind words.

There are many many more ... but right now I have a big smile on my face so I guess the aim of the post is achieved. Hope you have one too. Go ahead !! Take it up . Share some of you Happy Moments or Times . It's very theraputic ...

Really, most of us keep ranting most of the times of the numerous troubles we have. Hence, it is rare to see someone recounting the good things in life.

I am also inspired to do a similar thing today, and count the blessings for a change.

As far as your brother being lost in Andheri, I have a similar account when one of my sisters got lost in Pondicherry's local markets. Two hours later we found her- bargaining in a shop !!!

you are one hell of a talented girl or should i say - family! dancing, painting, writing, swimming.singing ke bare mein kya mamla hain?that's the only thing left, i guess. nice post, makes you feel good and makes the readers feel good too.

PS :Andheri shopper's stop is no more the busiest place in mumbai ;) and I hope we start having free libraries in Mumbai as well (even if there is then I don't know any!).

I would say that if you were to compile your writings and write a book; the book would turn out to be a best seller. Each of your writings is of a very high standard and always captures the reader's attention
