Sr. B, Jr. B, and now Baby B

So the hoopla can increase by the second now. Baby B has arrived with full Dhamaka. Gosh, I doubt anyone’s baby got this much coverage from the media. Seems like this baby will get pampered by the entire India and Indians living abroad. Seriously…no kidding!

Let’s recap a bit of when this baby was still in a womb. Every site I visited had something or the other about Aishwariya and her pregnancy. Firstly readers were uncertain if Ash was preggers or not? Later on she got entangled in the huge controversy of Madhur Bhandarkar’s Heroine and how she kept the pregnancy news under wraps before signing. Then the nautanki arrived if she has a bump or not? Another drama was the wardrobe she chose to present herself in front of media. Hiding that bump and all. And it went on and on… Aish was all over the world; it was hard to neglect her in any shape or form. The Bahurani delivered baby girl…my Gosh, what a news! Messages started pouring in from every corner of the world. Thereafter every move of the Bachchan clan became separate news. More like top news! I follow Sr. B on Twitter and I can’t stress enough on the type of news he shared with the world. To me, they are just hypocrites. Earlier they tried to portray how ‘sant’ they are in hiding the bump and presenting Aish as the only ‘sati-savitri’ alive and later without hesitation announced to the world every nitty gritty detail about Aish’s pregnancy. That too by Sr. B not her husband but her father-in-law. Ahh…what a cheap act? Bachchan’s FAM bam is a bizarre world!

Wonder what will be next big news? Any guesses…

What a wonderful Birthday!

For me, November 21st is the bestest day of the year – believe it or not! I adore the month of November every year.

My birthday kick started sharp at midnight. The surprise planned by my hubby and all the cousins was truly remarkable. I should’ve been able to figure this but no, my brain is not that sharp. I’m the last person on Earth who will never be able to spoil a surprise. I entered my house at midnight and was taken aback with the candles, balloons, cake, lights off. For a second it daunted me if I opened my own house or someone else’s? The guys screamed at the top of their lungs and gave a full shock to me. Afterwards, the normal ritual began. Birthday song; blowing the candle; wishing; and cake cutting. Black Forest never goes wrong…YUM! I must confess that I probably gained a few extra pounds because of this delicious monster.

While this entire episode was taking place, I kept thinking about the huge thing sitting in my living room covered with a big sheet. Finally, everyone asked me to proceed towards the surprise gift. The minute I uncovered the gift, I went into a shock mode and turned around to look at my hubby. I could not believe my own eyes. It was a Telescope. A gift I never expected to buy until I had some heft moolah in my pocket. I was and still am completely impressed with the gift.

Next morning, as always phone calls started pouring in and I had to give everyone at least twenty some minutes. My conversation can never be of couple minutes! It was very hard struggling between work and all the wishes but I was able to manage it. The evening started off with a fantastic dinner at Sakura Restaurant. I couldn’t have picked any other place. The chef’s at that restaurant sure know how to keep everyone’s attention intact. Totally worth it! A special shout to my bro who prepared the most incredible speech. I received an unexpected gift from him.

The last but not the least plan was bowling. We girls rule everywhere, every time and so we won!!!

Thank you all! It was an unforgettable day… xx

Crorepati


This happened to be my 100th article. Believe it or not! It bewilders me how fast life is running. I can reminiscence over my past through my articles.

***

Sushil Kumar – if you watch Kaun Banega Crorepati 5, you very well know whom I’m talking about. The simple, down-to-Earth man won 5 crore rupees on KBC5. He’s the first to win that sum in this show. A man whose income merely satisfied the necessities of a family hopes for a secured future. KBC regenerated his life. The way Sushil Kumar kept himself totally intact throughout the game was marvelous. He spoke sensibly and after answering every question turned around to pay respect to his elders. I also fancied the way he spoke to AB Sr.; unlike some other contestants who would just ramble on weird and non sense stuff. Sushil Kumar showed such eagerness to continue studying and writing a book. I was appalled by his nature. I recall when I graduated from college; I decided not to pick up another book for a long time. The guy seemed so focused in life. The old days are long gone for him. The new life is filled with contentment and hope. Let’s all wish him good luck in his new life!!!

The Kardashian ‘nautanki’

Well, we all knew it wasn’t going to last long. Ms/Mrs., [I really don’t know how to address her;] Kim Kardashian wanted a fairytale wedding and all the attention in the world. She never said she wanted to maintain a relationship or a marriage. The very minute the news came out, Twitter started pouring in tweets about Kardashian divorce and infact she was all over the trend column! One of them was #ThingslongerthanKimsmarriage. It certainly made everyone roll off the floor laughing. One can contribute an entire day in reading all the tweets made on this ‘trend’.


She holds a billion dollar empire in her pocket. She knows every tactic to stay on top and in public attention. Now that she’s on the highest peak of her career; she’s exploring the international markets as well. Recently I heard [not sure if it was a rumor] how she wants to be an ‘item girl’ in a Bollywood film. She also traveled to Dubai to introduce her product line. She has more followers on Twitter than Barack Obama. She is always on channel E! She has her wedding marathon constantly running on E! There’s no way you can avoid her on magazines cover while shopping. She annoys me to the core while watching Bigg Boss or KBC on internet with her irritating California advertisement. She not only made herself a product but her entire family gets footage. The whole family loves to be part of mega controversies. Super duper, hi-fi people!
