Reunions when done properly are amazing right? The entire “Glam-team” minus one made it for an afternoon filled with laughter and candid conversations. It’s strange to think how many girl gangs I’ve become a part of over the years. But the wonderful thing is that every one of these groups seem to have evolved so much in the past decade and largely, I still thoroughly enjoy the company and value the friendships.
In other news, I’m spending the long weekend at mums place and was surprised to find a parcel with my Rakshabandhan gift left on top of my pillow with a note from Scooby. It’s nice that the baby brother remembers, even though he is far away on vacation.
Just like much of the informed world, I’ve spent last week having super polarising conversations about the Google unconscious bias and FB AI debacle. One one issue I think it does exist and there is no reason why anyone should be penalised for starting an honest debate. On the latter one I have only one thing to ask: “Mr. Zuckerberg, CUT IT OUT!!!! Have you heard of ULTRON?!!!!!!”
When you are cut off from humanity and are deep in the lap of nature for a couple of days, there is a random urge to be in a cafe in the city having fun conversations. When you are caught in traffic you start hoping you were instead at the beach watching the waves. And on weekends like this, when you have been wading through a sea of colourful pictures, you wish to suddenly be amidst the riot of colours and celebrations at an Indian wedding.
Scooby’s wedding almost felt like a movie with quite a bit of background production. It’s apt I guess that the photographers have cut a “TRAILER” then 😉
Life sometimes has a strange way of bouncing back to normalcy. Speaking with Scooby today about all things food has given me an idea about documenting all the places I get to eat out at.
Scooby is married and my family and heart are richer overnight. Seeing so many of my friends and family amidst a riot of colour and festivities is a memory I will cherish for a long time to come. I could only wish for a lifetime of joy and happiness for my baby brother and his lovely wife.
My parents home has never looked prettier than it did today when it doubled as the venue for Scooby’s mehendi. With so many of our friends attending the event, the house is ringing with laughter and joy in all corners.
Don’t know if it’s the membership upgrade or the excellent terms I’m on with the fun people at the store, I have never got such an awesome freebie haul before. This little lot should keep me going for a while!!
Scooby’s wedding prep has reached a pace of total frenzy. Don’t think I can shop any more and I definitely can’t believe this is the last weekend at home with just the 4 of us!! The week ahead looks like it’s going to be brimming with temples, celebration, colour, fun, friends and family. Basically, the primary ingredients that make an Indian summer wedding.
Home of Pizza, a volcano, quintessential Italian scenes, loud (actually very loud) Italians, brilliant sea food and the gateway to the Mediterranean Sea.
As the Italian countryside bathed in beautiful sunlight whizzes past my train window, I can’t help but feel heartbroken that this adventure is over. But, that means I get to go home just in time to start the festivities to my little brothers wedding. I can’t believe Scooby is getting married!!!
