winter is here!!!
hmmmm... it's been so long that iv written....
exams you see. not that i have been studying too much, but nevertheless exams are exams..
iv been waiting and waiting for winter. i'm going banglore in a few days!!! yay!!
and there are two things to dampen my spirits, first is that my back paper's result hasnt yet been declared so the companies which will be arriving soon, wont be able to interview me,..!! :P i mean, i wont b eligible. and secondly there was this apti exam.. but thankfully it got cleared out, so i can go.. i have been reading jane austen: persuasion n dan brown: lost symbol..
jane austen is her usual self.
but lost symbol kinda let me down. i mean, ofcrse it was full of info as can be expectd frm dan... but it dint have that pace as his other books..and it was kind of predictable..
now, im trying to regularly go jogging n all..for ssb. and i have to start doing apti..m just feeling that the holidays just started n we already have to start studyng n college is starting frm 13th dec... so soon.. :( but it is final year. no time to enjoy...
on the day of our last exam, me n asmi n mani celebrated kum's birthday. it was a lot of fun.. could have been more fun but, something silly happened n mani lost her mood n slept early so the rest of us just watched a movie.
we got kum a pair of really cute pumps.
and now the next post will probably be after the banglore trip n wit pics of kums birthday... havnt yet tranferrd them frm d cam.. i can be a bit too lazy at tyms.. :)
i dunno during exams i had this constant urge to write.. in my diary or in d blog. and now, nothing. absolutely nothing.
i just wanna lie around watch t.v. not use my brain, etc...
anyway ill have to get out of this soon enough. so happy winter..mmm....

the indian so-called festival of lights is here. people will be lighting candles n diyas, performing the laxmi puja, bursting crackers, the works..
i decided to write this to my blog coz even though people mostly follow the anti pollution campaign superficially or not at all when it comes to diwali.. maybe after reading this, even if one person decides to go along with, ill b happy.
lighting lamps and the puja are the parts of diwali i like.
but lighting up crackers. i hate it. not because i am afraid, i used to light all those kinds f laxmi bomb n sutli bomb n what not when i was in 10th. it was after i turned 16, that i made a lot of serious changes in my life. one of them was not bursting crackers on diwali or any other day. i was in the anti-pollution campaign.
i dont get it. what kind of satisfaction can people get by lighting these crackers that emit so much smoke.. make your throat itchy and everything...
people give this excuse..."awww it's just once a year..."
but in that one day, the amount of obnoxious gas that's emmitted all over india is unbelievable.
i am pleading to each and everyperson who reads this, please please stop using crackers on diwali.
if ur so hell-bent on using them please buy the eco-friendly ones available.
today i read an article in THE HITVADA, about the kids who are made to work in these factories that manufacturescrakers.
i dont have words to express.. why would people use something which results in chid labor, air pollution and which does no good to anyone!!!
so please! make a promise to yourself. do not use crackers, make this world a little bit better than it would be. your effort counts. it night be a millionth of what's necessary, but it counts. EVERY SINGLE EFFORT COUNTS. please do this. and convince whoever you can do the same. you can go back to sleep feeling a bit lighter. ur a good human being. thank you!!
