phoneLess me

there used to be a time wen i used to be hooked on to the phone almost the entire day...
every 2 mins, i used to check it for messages or missed calls.. if nothin else, time !! and if nothin nothing else, change tunes, change my welcome message..

and by the way, my welcome message was "Obnoxiously Cute" !! This certain someone preferred callin me Obnoxious, and I kinda liked the name... And its stuck on wit me post the incident !!

save all those crazy messages exchanged with friends.. the then boy friend.. current love.. that one special love message, which u lyk want to keep it wit you for the rest of you life.. cus its so special !!
jhagda wala message ?? woh bhi thha...

those crazy nites, all those drunken talks n sleep talks.. jhagda.. careless whispers !! all those memories wit my lil butterfly (butterfly is my mobile phone)

and those imp contacts..

all this is lost now...

the b**** flicked the phone from my jeans pocket..

i was sleepy ya, so cudn't really make out someone was flickin the precious thing from my jeans pocket.. i still don't knw wen that happened..

i was goin to work in some local train from thane.. over crowded... one of those 'Virar Fast' kinda experiences.. sandwiched between fat women.. crazee.. luckily, i came out in one piece !!

the lady behin me kept pullin my hair cus they touched her nose and tickled her.. gave her a nice gyan.. !! hehe

the usual me, was givin gyan to the women around as to how to behave wen the train's overcrowded and there's no place to stand.. and not to shout and not to pull my hair :-P !!

anyways, so yeah, the butterfly is gone now.. i won't be gettin a new one before the 2nd of nov.. the number remains the same though !!

oh.. and i was lookin at a few more contributors for my other blogs.. leme know if anyone's interested.. !!

Second - Hand Books

the other day, not realy the other day... i think last sunday, i was at this trash seller..
browsing thru some books..

bought "Outlook 52 get-a-ways" !! a book which i wanted to buy since like ages..

too expensive for a poor soul like me, so it kept on gettin delayed...
and always forgot to look for this book at churchgate and other second hand book places..

and anyways these places are not all that cheap wen it comes to second-hand books anways..

so yeah, got some 350 INR ka book for 20 INR !! amazing deal...
never considered this book worth 350 INR... so, it had to be a second hand place..

ok, i'm tryin to make a point here... .

this dude, must have got it for like 50 paise or something.. at the max a ruppee... the churchgate man sells it for 50 - 80 bucks.. and i got it for 20 bucks..

OriGiNal ... fresh piece.. not torn or withered away !!

amazin !! how the price of a book falls even if its been read only once...

..: FareWell :..

5th of October was the last day at Nielsen. Been a year + 4 months + 5 days at the same company.. amazing !!

for a fact that i managed to stick around wit the same company for so long...

anyways, funny day... felt so wierd, tat I cudn't even make out wat exactly i was feeling...
was a first farewell for me... had one at school after 12th, but not all that farewell kinds..

AIESEC, nevah had a farewell of sorts.. remember the last conf ka farewell though...

the conf was at Hyderabad in Nov.. like really chilly... u lyk had to wear 4 sets of clothes to feel warm and comfy.. anyways, last day, people in my dept (External Relations) were lyk completely drunk... we had this lil session of wat u think abt the conf and the dept and the future.. and some more jazz lyk tat... and few of the members sheddin tears..
for some, tears of joy... for me sadness.. was goin to be my last conf...

aur fir plenary main jaake jo dhamaka kiya ER ne, sab depts ki bolti bandh ho gayi thhi.. we were like 12 members, highly high, the loudest.. and active... still miss it.. !

anyways, lemme come back to the Nielsen farewell...
was greeted by a bouquet... and a sad face on the paper.. which I turned over and kept it in the corner.. eventually it was torn off as i hate seein sad faces around me..
gave everyone chocolates.. to cheer them up.. and some humor to make them laugh..

i guess everyone was feelin wierd.. didn't know, whether to be happy or sad.. to cry or to laugh..

towards 5 pm, had a lil cake cuttin session and huggin and farewell speaches..
followed the AIESEC culture of giving everyone a Sugar Cube.. basically a lil partin note from me to everyone...

thot of puttin up some of the farewell messages i recieved from my clients and team-members on the blog..
followin this post, i'd also put up my farewell message..

guys, remember, u'd alwayz hav a special place in my heart... for reasons, i'd prefer not mentionin them here.

Needhi - is my Team Member.. one of those MBA types :-D... really nice to be around with.. we used to have lunch together.. she'd get chicken for me, which i miss a lot these days...

this is wat she has to say :

Hey Miss DJ,
I didn't really like you in the beginning, cos like you said you were very strict. But as I got to know you, I realised what a sweetheart you actually are.
I really enjoyed being with your 'Pichhwada'.. lol !!
Anyway, hope you have a bright future and stay in touch ya.


P.S. Now I don't have company for Mama's :-(

ok.. she used to sit behind me, which is why this 'Pichhwada' tag.. ! the name Dj cus i was the only one around who dared to play music on loud speakers in the office, only to get a warnin from the Director.. 3 days of jazz, and then hell.. the IT dude was tracing my internet usage and stuff !!

Anyways, Neha Kokane, another colleague from the same dept :

Hi Aditi,

Jus wanna say 'All the Best'
It was a pleasure knowing you !
You were the first person who introduced me to RRC and from then.. the goa trip :-), my first normalisation sheet :-))... he he he... it has all been memorable.

Have an amazing future !!
Keep writing blogs so that we keep on reading your adventures.

Take Care

Loads of wishes...


And one from the Client..
Kerri takes care of ShopperTrends for the Europe region -

Hi Aditi,

I'm really sorry to hear you are leaving! You have been a great support to me on ShopperTrends which I really appreciate. I had a sneaking feeling that you may be venturing on when you declined the later half of my meeting invites but was hoping you were taking a long holiday instead ;-)

I wish you all the best at Apricot Media and I hope we keep in touch.


one of those people whom i'd want to meet, cus she's so sweet. Very easy to work with and very accomodating. And one of those clients i'm gonna miss working for...

Anyways, lyf's gotto move on.. I have moved on..

Lovely and a well spent day…

The best part of the day was the drive down to Manor…

More in the next post..

Till ‘en… enjoy every bit of the evening..

Hating myself !!

and i thot i loved myself... more than anyone else did...

anyways, this hatred has developed over a period of 2 hours... watever...

hate myself, for being so indifferent, for bein so un-caring...
hate myself for changing...

I'm not the same !!

thanks world, for changin me.. makin me a different person...

sorry... but... i really do HaTe the new Me...

- self hater


..: Sunscreen :..

one of those all time favs..
a fren was talkin abt it today on the gtalk, listened to the song after almost 2 yrs now..

read the lyrics again...

and here are snippets of the song... the whole of it makes sense...

but i'm puttin the lines which are more relevant to me..

enjoy.. !

Baz Luhrmann - Everyone's free (to wear Sunscreen)

Enjoy the power and beauty of your youth.
Oh, never mind. You will not understand the power and beauty of your youth until they’ve faded.
But trust me, in 20 years, you’ll look back at photos of yourself and recall in a way you can’t grasp now how much possibility lay before you and how fabulous you really looked.

i'm goin thru this phase rite now.. was talkin to a fren about how i've lost my childhood, doin absolutely nothing, nothin to be proud of... the circumstances were wierd.. but, i'm livin my lyf now, since a year and a half to be precise... thanks Mumbai - for happening ! thank u God, for makin it happen !!

Don’t worry about the future.
Or worry, but know that worrying is as effective as trying to solve an algebra equation by chewing bubble gum.
The real troubles in your life are apt to be things that never crossed your worried mind, the kind that blindside you at 4 pm on some idle Tuesday.
Do one thing every day that scares you.

Don’t be reckless with other people’s hearts.
Don’t put up with people who are reckless with yours.

i wish, it cud be so easy.. loved, broke, loved again, broke.. status - love is not for the weak hearted.. i'm not gonna stop lovin people jus cus they are reckless.. instead teach them a lesson or two in the process !!

The race is long and, in the end, it’s only with yourself.
Remember compliments you receive. Forget the insults.
If you succeed in doing this, tell me how.
Keep your old love letters. Throw away your old bank statements.

Don’t feel guilty if you don’t know what you want to do with your life.

i feel, knwin things makes it all more complicated.. jus live in the moment and take it from there.. plans will crash and fail, jus let it be the way it is supposed to be.. instead of complicatin your own lyf by puttin rules and plans to the ever-so-enthused lyf !

Whatever you do, don’t congratulate yourself too much, or berate yourself either.

Enjoy your body.
Use it every way you can. Don’t be afraid of it or of what other people think of it.
It’s the greatest instrument you’ll ever own.

i like this line.. 'the greatest instrument' !!

Dance - even if you have nowhere to do it but your living room.

one thing which relaxes me, and the only thing which can cure me of all the pains ! dance.. and yes i do dance, but only wen i feel lyk..

Get to know your parents. You never know when they’ll be gone for good.
Be nice to your siblings. They’re your best link to your past and the people most likely to stick with you in the future.
Understand that friends come and go,
but with a precious few you should hold on.

Live in New York City once, but leave before it makes you hard.
Live in Northern California once, but leave before it makes you soft.

Don’t expect anyone else to support you.
Maybe you have a trust fund. Maybe you’ll have a wealthy spouse. But you never know when either one might run out.

you now knw why i'm not dependent on u, why i keep refusin favours from u... i believe in living alone.. wen i need the support, i'l definitely come back to you..

Be careful whose advice you buy, but be patient with those who supply it.
Advice is a form of nostalgia. Dispensing it is a way of fishing the past from the disposal, wiping it off, painting over the ugly parts and recycling it for more than it’s worth.

“brother and sister together we’ll make it through,
someday a spirit will take you and guide you there
I know that you’re hurting but I’ve been waiting there for you
and I’ll be there just helping you out
whenever I can
everybody’s free
everybody’s free
to feel good”

and that is how the song ends...

so true, so inspiring, so refreshing (a few lines are), and so very bringing-back-to-reality kinds !

enjoy, while it lasts...
