Acquisition 1: Sheesha a.k.a Hookah
Ahhh....it was a bliss to smoke the Hookah for the first time... I was amazed with the kind of variations with which one can smoke it.... you can use water, ice, juice, milk as a natural filter to increase the thickness, taste and temperature of the smoke.
Though I don't smoke it much as it contains .5% tobacco which can be injurious to health over time ;) ... nevertheless it was a good buy and I am proud to own one..!!
Acquisition 2: Stamp Paper Painting
For those who don't know I am lover of art and antiques. I also had a great collection of antique coins which got stolen from an exhibition...bloody Ba*^&*%
One evening I was at 'Dilli' Haat with my mom and a friend. While she was busy purchasing something... I casually walked into an art store... I was suddenly attracted to a collection of paintings made on 99 years to 300 years old Stamp Papers... I was intrigued by two things... firstly, the fact that the Stamp Papers were very old and secondly, how beautifully the paintings were made on those Stamp Papers.
I immediately bought one got it framed and now it finds place in my drawing room amongst my priciest possessions...
PS: The actuals are different from the ones shown above!!

I have just finished with an awesome get together at my house...
All my cosines in NCR came to my house, we all chatted, guffawed, ate, drank and had great fun...
It was after a long time that all of us met together... the best part of this get together was that it was totally unplanned...
Anyways I am dead tired now... so I am going off to sleep..

I didn’t get time to write anything at all. Apologies to those who visited my blog with a hope to see a post (if there is anyone).
I finally decided to write a post and since it is not possible for me to a post in one go due, I plan to this post during the day and mention the time of the day after every paragraph. (11:45 AM)
Monday was the most hectic day of my term in EY. I don’t know what happened but suddenly everything came up at once. During the whole day I just kept on attending meetings, taking calls, sending e-mails and making memos… (1:10 PM)
Tuesday was relatively interesting.. I was asked to prepare a note on the scope of the words “in any manner” and establish that it is not wide. I say the exercise was interesting because after a long time in EY I got an opportunity to research like a lawyer, apply statutory interpretations etc etc (4:30 PM)
On Wednesday too the saga of “in any manner” continued and it ended at 11 PM in the night. By then I was so tired that I fell asleep 1) at the reception of my office and 2) in the car… (5:00 PM)
During these three days, nothing really exciting happened. I kept on working and they kept on making me work.. (6:50 PM)
Today one of my junior from college came to office for an interview. It was nice to see someone from college again. I felt like going back to college and relive those days… (7:45 PM)
I am still sitting in office finishing up some work, I should be able to leave in half an hour.... and then once again a long travel back home…
Although all these days have been very hectic but its been a good exposure and learning. I am learning to withstand pressure and multitask. Lot of times when I am caught in a high pressure situation I wonder how/ where would I be 10 years down the line and I get many answers which only time will testify. (9:30 PM)
Weekend is nearing and I am seriously looking forward for this one… I just want to relax (once again) (9:35 PM)
I will try to write more…
