Nothing but ...

"There is a little bit of dumbness and a little bit of intelligence in all people" 
                                           - My Husband

Isn't this so true? How much ever one is intelligent, one tends to do/think dumb occasionally. Apparantly,this is one of the many witty persistent remarks/quotes that my hubby proclaims every now and then. And each time I sarcastically tell him that I need to make a note of his 'dialogues' . His repertoire of quotes keeps me amazed each time. Although I do forget them eventually.

Coming  to what I a actually had in mind, It's about LOVE.

There is a growing inclination towards love marriages in India over the recent years. Our country has been traditionally following the arranged marriage system from old times. The younger generation is preferring to adopt the love marriage systems. The older generation have started to accept.


While I'm writing this:

Hubby: "Are you done?" (Intentionally trying to disturb me)

Me: "Why do you have to be mean to me all the time?" (I'm kinda irritated by him interfering in my work)

Hubby: "I Love You" (Me Blusshhhhhhhh.., only in my mind, a stern face)

Oh God!! Love... It is.


People-  fall in love. Fall apart in love. Some don't bother. Some keep it platonic. Some are faithful . Some are dishonest .Some hurt, fight, break in between. Some forget. Some cry and cry. Some get disinterested midway and back up. Some don't have the guts to continue because of the pressures from parents, society, work. Some don't even make an effort to ask/ fight for their love and give up before even trying. Some try and try , if nothing works out, do their own thing. Some try and try, and give up just for their parents. And there are some of these who relentlessly try, try and succeed. Get married. Have a beautiful Life together.

Parents only want to keep their children happy. And kids do not want to hurt their parents. People have started to contemplate the matter. At the end of the day most people have started to realize that , it's about staying happy together, keeping each other happy, keeping the family happy, it's about LOVE. True Love.  And not about their cast , religion or their status.

Hubby: "How long are you going to take?" (with a wicked smile)

Me: "I don't know, Please be quiet" (mocking)


It's no more about Romeo and Juliet , Laila and Majnu. It's now about You and him/her, Hubby and Me( ;) )

Nothing but Love....

And why am I writing all this?

Just B'coz my cousin sis is getting married to her love, And She inspired me to write.

And to celebrate love, Here's the Orange and Walnut cake I made for Valentine's Day.

And Finally Here's my gooddy boody chubby wubby chweetie pie, whom I luv choooooooooo much, that I cuth eath him up:)  Look at that tree top :))


Me: "OK come here and see what I've written, Before I can Publish it" (Seriously)

Hubby Approaching.

rightly said, the times are changing and social stigma is to change! Interestingly, I had an interesting discussion with my Korean friend on the same topic last week.
