Diwali updates.

I was so scared that, Bunty might get scared of these loud sounds of bursting crackers, but she proved me wrong. Yes, my little one enjoyed cracker. She was ready to hold the sparklers and wanted more and more.  She finished all our crackers, raided my neighbors’ house and finished their sparklers and match boxes too.  What can I do with such a kid, who bosses around neighbors’ houses too?

We went downstairs with other people in apartment. Bunty wanted other crackers too. I had tough time holding her and not letting her go near the 100 wala’s and flowerpot.  Bunty thinks that she can play with them too. Smart one she is, she doesn’t cry even if the sparkler’s particle fall on her. She just leaves it on my hand or drops it down without fuss. But she is scared of diyas. If we keep them near the entrance, she is scared to cross the doorway. End of the day, she got used to them too, and started blowing them down like candles, clapping her hands and saying happy.. ( yes she was trying to sing happy b’day, but she has not got b’day word to pronounce).

Regarding expressions of Bunty, she was all excited to see light and sparks and sounds. Unlike other kids in apartment, she enjoyed and helped us enjoy without crying.

Note to self: buy more crackers.  Or else Bunty is going to burn you.. J.

As I promised here are the pictures.



I welcome you here! My blog is primarily a blank paper with chronicles of my everyday thoughts and happenings around me spilling like colours. It has various hues, bright, cheerful at times dark episodes of my life. I like to speak a lot and tell stories, but rarely find patient listeners. So, here I am venting out, everything crossing my mind. it is also a record book of my little Barbie’s antics and growth. It is just not about the baby ,but also helps me to keep track of fights and special moments with husband, in-laws and friends. I am an Architect by profession working for an Govt. away from husband because of job location. I love writing, painting, reading and cooking (occasionally).I like roaming around and window shopping. But, now unable to move even an inch outside, because of my daughter. I am originally from Andhrapradesh and have lived in Tamilnadu for 25 years and now back in Andhra. So you will find mix of words from both the languages and me trying to settle down in this new place. Thanks for stopping by. I would love to hear from you. Please email me at
