“I like this place and could willingly waste my time in it.”
― William Shakespeare
On a windy & dusty Sunday, I made a trip to a place I had planned to visit since 2013. In spite of being only about 30 kms or so away from where I live, and inspite of passing by the place quite a number of times, I simply could not manage a trip to this place. I guess, things happen only when they are meant to be. And so, one Sunday, I finally stepped inside the Assam Buddha Vihar, a Buddhist monastery perched on a hilltop in Amingaon, Kamrup, Assam.

…self-love. I believe it is the purest form of love. Only when we can love ourselves, can we pass on the love to others. And i believe its not selfish to love yourself, to take care of yourself and make your own happiness a priority, because it is necessary. Also, if one does not feel good about oneself, it is hard to feel good about anything else.

Band, Baaja, Boys! is a sure-fire laugh riot that will make you giggle, chortle, chuckle and often burst into large guffaws.
BA-pass Brajesh sold bras in Manphodgunj. Perhaps his destiny was sealed the day Babuji named him Bra-jesh. Under normal circumstances, Brahmins were not supposed to be businessmen. But Kumud Bajpai had brought along a hosiery shop as dowry and there was no looking back. Only front!
One glance and Brajesh could estimate, ‘Madam, 38D will be perfect.’
Together, they had produced and raised Binny, their twenty-year-old daughter, who they lovingly called a ‘happy-go-lucky’ girl: happy to spend her father’s money while different fellows got lucky.
As was noted by most of Manphodgunj’s male population, Binny had come of age. Who, from the queue of suitors will bag her? Raja, who has lost his heart to her? Or, the ‘gorment‘- job-holder Tarun? Or, will it be the Sanskari-N.R.I., Harsh? Or, will Binny spurn all of them and elope with Rahul Pandey?
Band, Bajaa, Boys! will take you on the laugh-o-coaster of your life!

The past weekend was kind of a let’s-celebrate-womanhood for me. Today, many people understand feminism as feminazi and I would like to make it clear here that I am all for the former only. Let’s make it clearer with their definitions –

Today with this post I am trying to catch up with two reviews in one post. The people at Fingerprint Publishing have always been patient with me and my mostly-delayed reviews of the books they send me. So here I am with two reviews – one pending and one on time 😛 and they are –
- Those Immigrants by Scott Haas
- Penumbra by Bhaskar Chattopadhyay
A few months back, I discovered adult colouring books and ordered one for myself. My copy was that of a series of Mandala. I am very amateur in the field of art and the pics below are an outcome of my amateurish efforts with sketch pens. I may not have done an outstanding work here, but I definitely loved the 2 hours of fun with sketch pens (after so many years) and coming up with these colour combinations. Blissful it was for sure! 🙂 ❤
Blurb (from Goodreads) –
Kristin Newman spent much of her twenties and thirties buying dresses for friends’ weddings and baby showers. To escape her fast-paced job as a sitcom writer, Kristin travelled the world, often alone, several weeks yearly. She fell in love with the planet and attractive locals – connection without commitment. Israeli bartenders, Finnish poker players, sexy Bedouins, and Argentinean priests help transform her into “Kristin-Adjacent” on the road – a slower, softer, and, yes, sluttier version of herself at home.
My thoughts –
As a part of the 2016 Monthly Motif Reading Challenge, I picked up this book for the month of July, for which the motif was – LOL: Hilarious memoirs, silly chick lit, comedic sci-fi. Pick a book that is guaranteed to make you laugh out loud. The book was in my TBR for quite a long time. The title of the book was what attracted me to it and when my friend gifted this one last month, I was super-duper happy! 🙂 😀 (more…)
