Kiddos…

There are few kiddos around my home who used to hug, kiss, cuddle, fight, cry, laugh, and almost do everything which makes you happy and happy and not a bit of sadness can crawl near you when these lil guys are around you. They are the cutie-pies, sweet-hearts, honey-buns and my favorite enemies 😀 😀 😀 Love you guys 🙂

 

Kids are the sunshine for our life.

Kids are the energy builders.

Kids make us feel young.

Kids make us forget our bitter memories.

Kids make us feel fresh and enthusiastic.

Kids are the essence of our happiness 😀

Mahmud of Ghazni

Once when i was doing my school education i like my History subject a lot. It depicts the life and war of the ancient time Kings and Queens. I love reading ancient histories as it gives me a profoundness regarding my own country India. It also portrays the rich Indian culture and various strong men who fought hard for saving our Mother India.

I also loved hearing about great warriors and Emperors who fought to capture our country. They all knew the value of our mother land and had a great zeal towards the wealth and rich natural resources of our country.

One such emperor who attracted me was  “Mahmud of Ghazni”. He was one of the Ruler who attacked us and captured our country. But he had a vast difference from the other Kings. He with a wish of having our country did not stop his invasion until 17 time.

A Feast !!!

Hello all!!!

After 3 long years i met my good old friends a few weeks back and had a good time with them together 🙂 It was such a lovely and memorable day which can never be erased from my heart forever 🙂 Thanks all for making be a happy person and love ya 😀

The get-together was arranged by a good friend of mine. She was already married and her hubby made all the arrangements for us to meet. So sweet of them 🙂

We reached the reserved Hotel by 11 in the morning. It was such a quiet and peaceful place that was portraying as also the best place for a hangout for friends. As you all know we girls made lots of hussy fussy and made a huge mess around the hotel corridor. A few people who came there to have a peaceful lunch was irritated by our mess. Sorry guys !!!

After a long chit chat with our friends we had to move on for having our lunch which was planned to have a meal as it was ordered already. Whatsoever the lunch may be we all are least concerned of it. All we want is to spend a valuable time with our lovable friends. So we had the lunch at 4 in the evening and i took few snaps which i need to keep it as a memorable one 🙂

The most interesting part in the meet is that many of my friends were married and they came with their kids. But for our disappointment the kids where terrified seeing a huge crowd of girls and started crying for help. Poor little ones!!! So they were sent home with their hubby’s and we really had a great deal of time to spend with our dear ones after a long gap. Was more excited and happy 🙂 🙂 🙂

Friends make our life colorful and they bring sunshine to our life 😀

We started our lunch with a celebration!!!

Guess none of us tasted it even a bit and instead it was fully covered up over our face 😀

Then comes the lunch 🙂

Starting of with the soup(Guess its tomato soup. Found it by seeing this pic 😛 )

Its a kind of masala papadam i guess (Not sure ! )

This was the complete lunch pack with an extra bowl of rice. It wasn’t good but we had a fulfilled lunch with our good old friends… 🙂

The fact is i had food poison after eating this lunch. But still i love the day and the amount of fun we had 🙂

P.S : I returned back home only at 7.pm with a mild sadness that got hold of my heart.

…Cassia Fistula

I was driving to the Departmental store for purchasing in the usual way. But i found something so lovely and colorful this time. Its the CASSIA FISTULA flower… We call it as KANNA POO… But when i googled i found this biological name for this flower 🙂

I was so surprised seeing it as i havent seen this for years of my travel in the same road… Guess i must be less concentrating over the nature on my way    😦 Anyways i was happy to see this and took few shots without the intimation of the owner of the home in which i found this flower. So i was in a hurry and only two of my clicks where good… Was a bit disappointed but still loved it 😀
