If you look from outsider's eyes. We both are different like chalk and cheese. He is composed, I am complex. He talks when needed, I need to talk all the time. He lets me tell all stories from my world, I make him listen to my chattering which includes everything under and around the sun.

He loves cricket, and knows micro-details of the game. I love cricket only when the World cup is on air or say, when India is playing. He loves books and chews most of them. I love books to be in the world of fiction, enjoy its joys and thrills, finally try to come back in the real world.

He likes to try different food and never gets tired of visiting new as well as his favorite places. I am moody when it comes to food, I only crave for chocolates, ice creams and Indo-Chinese food for most of the time.

He is mathematically brilliant, analytically excellent. I am mathematically not analytic. I over analyse non-mathematical things! He shows off his English vocabulary, I show off my Gujarati vocabulary!

If he says he is going to kill you. Please run for your life, as from what I know he never breaks a promise. Yeah, he can be  late but never fails his own word.

No, if you think from the above statement that he has some violent shades, I better tell you he is as calm as some real Sadhubaba meditating in Samadhi. Hardly anything can distract him! Forget violence, he might take time to react respond to the situation. Yeah unlike me, whose reaction time is as long as 1/1000th second.

He is one of those buddies who has naturally acquired the skill of deciphering my mood just by a simple 'Hello' on the call, in a few months only. Which is quite unusual. I change my mood faster than the speed of the sound if situation arises! (Haww, too much of self introspection!)

Now, if you feel this guy is too innocent and Sidha sada for me! Mind you, break this misconception! He has lots of Shanpatti hidden inside and that is why I call him Shana! ( Okay, I have many Shana types friends! One more to add as a life partner!) That is what he is!

People may call our jodi an oxymoron but then only these basic differences made us jump together in the journey called 'Life'!

There comes a day!

There comes a day, when all you want is to be alone. You want to just walk in the drizzling shower without a rain coat. You generally think a lot, but today, you dont want to think at al. You dont want to introspect any more. All you want is happiness. You are so independent but yet so much affected by atmosphere, your own people. Today, for a change, you want to get disconnected and fly.

You want to revive those days when you knew how to be happy on your own. You want a little time for yourself, to indulge into yourself. You want to be a little more selfish. You want to scream and then let that something go out. Not because you are depressed, you are not. You want to be alone because today, you want to be happy for yourself.

You dont want to think about any one, you dont want to think about past-present-future. You want yourself. You want to hug your self. You know, no better can understand you more than yourself.

You have to enjoy your own company. You have to be your own leader, counselor, friend and philosopher.

You know, there comes a day. When you feel like being yourself.

This place is like loving some one. I cant live without blogging. When I do, an unusual and discomforting feeling dwells in me. The problem I am facing is, I write a lot of things and save it as a draft. I dont have a heart to post them on this blog for some unknown reasons. Anyway, I guess I owe myself a blog post.

Life is moving on the hilly terrain , taking turns every now and then but the goal is decided. The goal is what I want and I am super happy with it. This fact makes me comfortable in many parts and yet there is a part of my soul struggling to adjust to the upcoming changes in my life.

I feel excited, I feel nervous. I feel numb and I feel like screaming from the roof top. The whirlpool of such feelings obviously takes a toll on me. Yet as my aunty says, this phase is going to be so pretty that I will always remember it. Period.

I am really going to write about this upcoming year as it is going to be different than 25 years. Each festival and each celebration will be different at home. I will be the lime light which makes me uncomfortable to my surprise. Yett there is a possibility I might enjoy being special. This phase of life might shape my future, nurture a matured soul but I am pretty sure and firm on one thing.

This Bubblegum wont change ethics, values, culture and of course blogging. Amen.

He and She! - A new beginning!

The boy: " I am clear. You be clear and let me know. No pressure, okay?, it is your life too!"
The girl: " Okay... I meant... Yeah let me think..."

In a few days,

The girl: Okay I am with you. :)

And so both sets of parents are happy. The guy is happy. The girl is on cloud nine with butterflies in her stomach continue to fly like the starting part of the story.

Wish us luck! :) Of course the girl is the Bubblegum! ;)

PS: A guest post by the guy about me and a post about the guy by me is coming soon.
