Rediscovering my Roots!

This was a long drive into the villages of Uttar pradesh, where i had been to visit my nani after ages.

After having boarded a train from bangalore to Lucknow and a 3 day antakshari filled train journey we were quite exhausted when we finally arrived at the grand nawabi styled lucknow station .

From the station we rented a taxi n headed on a strenuous trip to my granny's village which was  a full 3 hour drive. Driving through the lush green fields, awash with colours of nature we discovered ourselves, our childhood memories, the old world magic of Lucknow and as fresh natural breeze fanned us even as the taxi went galloping like a horse on the kacha pakka roads of  interiors of lakhimpur.

We discovered the real core India , scantily clad children excited at the sight of a car, people having bath at a lake, buffaloes, , cows, bullock carts,  sugarcane fields and more.

When we reached some distance drops of water began do go peter patter ... it was rain splattering against green fauna, and that is when we saw a sight to behold a sight for sore eyes, a clear full Rainbow. Amist beauty of nature and almost setting sun it looked like

Heaven on Earth!

This beauty was etched in my mind forever

 It was  serene sublime experience away from the crowded traffic filled, polluted roads of Bangalore. This was my most memorable trip till date i miss not having time to visit my Granny and have more of such experiences daily

Hairy woes!

Char paanch che
Hair makes my body look meh! 

BF decides to surprise me whacky!
He gets close to me n Iam all shacky!

Mind rings a bell out of the blue,
Its Gillette satin care for quick rescue.

Tell him 15  mins and ill be back
A quick shave and iam on track!

satin smooth skin without ado,
the feeling of sunkissed morning Dew
Now even black is such a vibrant hue
I wish I had opted for my hair removal before, PHEW!

Prickly woes!

Smooth, smoother, smoothest !
 Dont we all just like men well groomed ? Kisses are meant to be enjoyed not turn into a prickly punishment session.

Here are tips to make him go get a shave!:

-Do an extra long drooling session with hot clean shaven actors in front of your man, make him go all 'J'

-Avoid the KISS!  every time he approaches for a kiss tell him his stubble pricks n avoid it .

- Ask Him to shave point blank!...... sing Mai Pareshaan Pareshaan every time you spot him with a stubble!

-If he doesnt budge at that Threat him that his next Birthday gift is going to be a super fabulous gillette razor and not a romantic surprise you were initially planning.... yes ladies make him crave so he shaves ;)

- If that doesnt work , go ahead actually gift him a razor ! Infact gift him an all personalized hamper, with shaving cream , after shaves and shaving brush etc, which will actually make him shave :D

- If he is still adamant go ahead give him a personal style make over on his birthday! Ask him 'ill shave you stubble off while you get to watch me do it all being this close to me ? wanna try?'

See him try saying NO to that ;)

Viola You have your man all groomed,  time for party!
