Day 138/365 | (Junk) Noodle Love

Remember the canteens during our college/hostel days? Nothing ever healthy was served in those days and same is the case even till today. But, there are tons of memories associated with plates of noodles, parathas, rotis, bread omelette that were gorged then. Isn't it?

We visited IIIT campus for some work and we just had to sit down for some of egg noodles, fried rice and end it with a glass of fruit juice, to reminisce the good, old days. :-)

Day 135/365 | A Saree

I am not the one who gracefully handles a saree and wears it only in absolute compulsive circumstances, unlike my sister who has an amazing eye for lovely color combinations for these. Here is what she recently bought. Isn't it beautiful?

Day 130/365 | Super Woman

..and that is my mother..

She did her Masters at the age of 42, managing with weekend classes, a demanding 9 to 5 job, two active-school going kids & everyday cooking.
She learnt driving at the age of 50.
She rarely takes leave from office and today (if she wants to) can take a paid leave for more than year!
She is an amazing cook who can whip up a gourmet meal, in her crisp cotton saree & you will not find even a grease spot.
She is compassionate, loving, forgiving and somebody who sticks to her principles & intuition.
(In the pic) She bought a new blood pressure machine and check my dad's BP every single day after his accident in last October.

We are, what we are today because of Y.O.U, Mom.

Love you lots. I hope I will be like you when I grow up!
