10 Years from now....


There are multiple times when I am asked what and where will I be 10 years from now?
 And, most of my answers are either 'a very successful person', or most of the time it will be 'a very rich woman', with  a room full of  books. Of course like a 'big library kind' I had say.
Being a dreamer, at leisure I keep wondering where I really would be? will I achieve the things which I am wishing for? will I have the dream house (with the library of course) or will I even reach that 10 years from now ? I mean, no one knows where or what our future holds, yet every single one of us stays with the hope of seeing tomorrow and we make numerous plans, deciding where we will set our final den.
For some that 10 years from now never happened, either they lost track of doing what they wanted or they could never make it that far, while for some it is the moment they are enjoying now which they once wished long time ago.
This thought took me into a deep pondering mode and I wondered whether I will make it or not? or will I stop halfway? with much anticipation and full hope we are striving to go ahead fully unknown what lifes holds, and despite all the small negative feelings I get, I try to rub them off  my shoulder and tell myself, no matter where you end up maybe you will be more happy to look back  to see where you were once, which means even if I don't get what I wanted, maybe I will get what I deserve.

Were those people who are now at their happy places asked the same question? Maybe. Probably.
We may all not make it, but isn't it a pleasant feeling to think that you had a dream, somewhere down  the line it just disappeared and you got to the place where you belong. And, maybe that's what giving us the hope to live and live, why not have a dream to keep you moving in life? right?
We have one or more things to achieve and conquer, however if  we don't get through it, we might feel disappointed, but if it happens we can keep in mind that the journey we took are the life challenges and adventures we faced, that feelings might soothe us, if not relieve.

So, on that note I have come to the point that, from now on if people ask me where I see myself 10 years from now? I  won't mind telling them 'whatever the future holds I will be okay to be where I would be', not saying I will stop dreaming and working but I will be happy to be at that zone where I will cherish the fact that I once had a bigger dream with a bigger hope... and if I make it, well and good. If not, it was meant to be that way... Anyways, at the end... we are going to be where we belong. Ain't it?

Ahaglow Face Wash Review

Tried and Tested! For the past two months, I went through a very bad acne outburst phase. And when I say bad, it means BAD. So, with my knack for researching, I googled trying to find a cure or maybe at least some home remedies to treat my acne. But, a multiple trial and error and I gave up.  We know how pimple popping is more than just satisfying, hence the 'habit' left me with very bad scares on my forehead and chin, also I noticed more acne than I had in the first place.  Finally, a visit to my dermatologists came to my rescue. She prescribed  some medication i.e. face wash (I am coming to this), some anti-acne ointments, and a few capsules to take.  Obviously, I had to religiously follow the skin routine treatment, but in the hour of everything, there was this thing which I discovered… it was the face wash (Yep, the point of this blog, TBH) which I can give the entire credit to. AKA presenting to you my fountain of youth in a face wash (I am exaggerating a lil bit.) Ahaglow.…

Killing Time in Delhi by Ravi Shankar Etteth: Book Review

About the Book Bon vivant Charlie Seth, a privileged denizen of Lutyens’ Delhi, leads a life of idle luxury fuelled by money, drugs, sex, and parties. A cocaine overdose kills his ditzy girlfriend, thrusting him into a maelstrom of conspiracy, murder, blackmail, and promiscuity. As the world of Crazy Rich Punjabis unravels, Charlie’s future is suddenly at the mercy of an enigmatic woman, an unscrupulous swami, a society-obsessed policeman, a slippery drug pusher and a disloyal valet. The only person who can help him is his missing aunt. Holed up in the country palace that his grandfather had won in a game of cards from a raja on Diwali, Charlie plots his revenge. Killing Time in Delhi is a brutally funny look into the shenanigans of Delhi’s ultrarich who live in the fast lane and are high on hypocrisy, borrowed money, and dubious deals.
My Take on the Book You may be wondering, 'if the title of the book is really about 'Killing Time in Delhi?' then,  yes, it is. Also, it is ab…

Book Review: Pyjamas are Forgiving by Twinkle Khanna

Blurb: There sitting on that porch, that light-eyed man, a pitta like me, was my ex-husband and that woman whose inner element I was unaware of unless bitch is accepted as an undiscovered fourth dosha, was his young wife. In the serene sanctuary of Kerala’s Shanthamaaya spa where food is rationed, sex is forbidden and emotions cantered, Anshu meets someone familiar and deeply unsettling – her ex-husband. Bittersweet, funny and wise, Pyjamas Are Forgiving confirms Twinkle Khanna as one of our great storytellers. About the book: The book is narrated by a woman named, Anshu who is in her early 40’s (divorced) and is childless.  To take a well-earned break, Anshu is in a Kerala Ayurvedic Shanthamaaya spa, where food is rationed, sex forbidden, and emotions cantered, whilst on her journey to remove dosha, Anshu is met with a familiar, yet a deeply unsettling sight- her philandering ex-husband, Jay, with his much younger wife, Shalini- who is quite opposite from her, both in physical and emotio…
