Delhi 6

Yeh sheher nahi mehfil hai.

I can't think of a better time for Dilli 6 songs- Vani gets married next weekend, most of my friends are in Delhi and its February.

Met with 15 old friends at Turquoise Cottage, at a mini reunion. Went back all the way to school days- where the most beautiful relationships were made. I went to the Army Public School, which churns out surprisingly smart women and refreshingly different men, year after year. My closest relationships are still the ones I made back then. Baby Singh and I have been friends for 16 years. I have known Mrinal (who did a surprise visit at TC) since I was 4!!

Sunday morning was productive - I finally got all my outfits done for the wedding. So I haven't bought any of the sequined, net, shiny, lehengas, in pinks or yellows. That's exactly the reason it took me so long to get something in place. Wherever I went, I was shown outfits I wouldn't wear for my own wedding. But now I'm done, with 3 nice outfits. All tailor made! For the Sangeet, I'll be wearing a gold halter blouse with a long, flowing skirt in midnight blue. For the Chruch wedding, its a dress in wine- this was straight forward. I bought it in London a few months back. And for the reception, I'm wearing a brocade lehenga in red, with a plain red blouse (with 2 strings holding the back together), and a transparent dupatta. No embroidery, sequins and all that. Very simple, but just what I wanted for Vani's wedding. Very Delhi! Not the loud, neon coloured Delhi. The understated yet power-packed Delhi I grew up in

This morning, I left home for work at 7:45 am, drove through the foggy highway and got here well in time.

I just sent out a few key messages, and decided to take 15 minutes out to scribble this out.

Here are my favorite pics of Dilli 6 (pics I took, that is).

Lots of love (bas ishq, mohabbat, pyaar)

Pink chaddis for Sri Ram Sena

Here's a gift for Sri Ram Sena for Valentine's day.

I promise they'll receive my prettiest pink pair which, although I love, is definitely more appropriate for the Sri Ram 'Sainiks'

I'm now a proud pubgoing, loose, forward looking woman, and support the Pink Chaddi Campaign.

Too many may bes

Hardly feels like Tuesday. Got a fair bit done at work, but managed to get home well in time.

I was generally blog-hopping when I came across the 1000th reason I absolutely love Freida Pinto. She shops at H&M!! More recently, I've been getting extremely annoyed with Affluenza-hit people. People (yes, a lot at work!) turn almost any conversation to one about big brands or lavish holidays or Armani skirts as if I care!! I have no interest in handbags or women getting together and squealing at them- this time Burberry or Dior ones. Any way she shops at H&M, and despite all her gorgeous red carpet outfits (I'm sure she had a dozen for all those events where Slumdog won lots of awards), she shops where I do.

Sunday night, Sumit and I were catching up on each other's lives and happenings when he mentioned he's absolutely kicked about the recession. His reasons were similar to mine- humility, people being more laidback and overall a sense of 'now lets all relax'. Now there's two of us. We'll start a we-love-the-recssion camp. I don't love it, I like it. I don't like it when people close to me lose their jobs. So may be not. Any way, he's all booked for the wedding too. Yay!!

I haven't been seeing much of Peepu these days. Although he's around, he's moved to the other side (most unlike him to move to the noisier side). May be this Friday I'll find some time with him. Most of our conversations have me talking and him listening, adding his characteristic 'Be like me, all I do is work'. May be I'll have one of those conversations this week.

I saw two movies this evening, both in part though (Its a weekday! Haw!!)- American Pie Beta House and Serendipity. Both mindless, but fun any way. Serendipity would not have been as mindless if they hadn't pulled it so far. Had it stopped at them meeting at the wedding hall the first time, I would have identified with it. May be not. Not sure.

My hair's wet so I'm off to blow them dry.
