Note: This story is about love between two college goers. This is a work of fiction and characters portrayed are also fictitious, any resemblance to a real person, living or dead, is purely coincidental.

The girl has no idea about the boy's feelings for her. She considers him a good friend, a support system, but does not have feelings for him.

One fine day, the boy finally tells the girl of his love. This is a total shock for the girl. She finds it hard to believe that such an incident has happened. She wonders where she had gone wrong. Had she acted in a manner that made her friend thing she was in love with him? This serves as a turning point for the friendship in question.

Fashion Talk (Part 1)

Disclaimer: This series of posts is about my views on fashion( for women). It stems from my observation of  what people around me (in my city and my country India) have been and are wearing.

The world of fashion is an ever changing one.Every season there are new trends mushrooming at such a rapid pace that it becomes an impossible task for people to keep up. Only the elite class can afford to update themselves as frequently as there are changes in fashion trends. Among the others,some people try their best to have something that is 'in vogue' while some others are least bothered.
No matter what your take on fashion is, I have some simple tips for you.

Some simple fashion ideas:

  • Leggings: This trend is hugely overrated.Every other person seems to be wearing them in different combinations-with T Shirts, Kurtis,Tunics etc While mix and match is always good, it is essential to remember 'Only some body types are flattered by leggings, while the rest need to keep away from them, or wear long/loose fitting tops with them!'(depending on body type) 
  • Skirts : These are the girly options of dressing. They come in all shapes and lengths and can be worn with t shirts or tops. They may be swirly/stiff, made of denim/cotton, etc. My personal favourite is  'a long swirly skirt ' in a light colour.
  • The Chudidhar: This is the most common outfit I have ever seen. It is a simple, hassle free way to dress. It is preferred by all and sundry probably due to the fact that it is comfortable and can be altered or customised very easily.This is a multi purpose option and can be used for different occasions.Its sisters are 'The Salwar kameez' and 'The Patiala'
  • The Dress: In my opinion, this is a stylish option. It comes in many types, the most fashionable being 'the little black dress' suitable for parties.

A Bookworm Speaks..

I was introduced to the habit of reading during my primary school days.

I began by reading those small books full of colours and large letters. By the time I was 11, I had become a voracious reader with a huge appetite for books.(non academic only!) I had finished reading most of the books by Enid Blyton. ‘Famous Five’, ‘Secret Seven’ ‘Mallory Towers’ were my favourites.I loved ‘Nancy Drew’, ‘Hardy Boys’ and adored Agatha Christie’s books.

During the next few years, I entered the magical world created by J.K Rowling. Harry Potter and his adventures were a major source of my entertainment and I became a die hard fan. I was totally addicted to the ‘Harry Potter’ series for several years. Due to this I missed out on many other good books.

Next came the Chicken Soup books. This phase was followed by a sudden interest in books by Indian authors. I read books by R.K Narayan and R.K Laxman. Then came Chetan Bhagat. ‘Five Point Someone’ was a really fun read.

Later I moved to Robin Cook and his medical thrillers. I alternated them with Sidney Sheldon’s masterpieces. Dan Brown captured my interest with ‘Angels and Demons’ and ‘Digital Fortress’.

Vacation Diary

There's no better time of the year than the summer holidays.Who doesn't want to take a little (or big)vacation and chill out for a while?

That's exactly what I did. after completing my MBA course in Chennai,the next step was a JOB. But I decided that before taking up a job,I needed a break!After 18years of education,I wanted to relax before moving to the next phase of life.So, i came straight home to Visakhapatnam.I've been home for two and a half months now and I've had loads of fun.
I incorporated some ideas to help me spend my leisure time.Some were girly, some practical and some downright silly, but nevertheless, they were enjoyable.
The things I did:

Got a license: I applied for a car driving learners license which seemed a practical option. I practiced driving daily and will take the test soon.

Had a haircut: Summer season made my hair unmanageable.So I opted for a new haircut. 

Cleaned my room:  My room was quite messy and boring, so i thoroughly cleaned it up and decorated it a bit.
