Its been a year, and what a year its been!
I wrote my last blog post almost a year ago and have been away from this site since then. The reason is pretty simple.
On my last birthday, over my birthday cake, I made a wish for two things I fervently wanted. One wish was that we find the perfect match for Pallavi, and the other was that I wanted to celebrate my next birthday with my child. I decided as a lark to not post until my next birthday, and then only if both my wishes had come true.
Imagine my joy today that I am able to write today as both my wishes have been fulfilled! In Pratyush ji, we have struck gold, someone who perfectly compliments the diamond that is my sister. And in Saanvii, I have found how much more love I had within me still to give.
Today, I am a happy man. Perhaps not completely content (who is?), but as content as can be. Now its time for the next phase of my life to properly begin.
Last year was my 30th birthday as a man. This year is my 1st birthday as a father. I’m looking forward to the next 12 months and hoping they’re as good as the last 12 have been.
I’m in Jaipur for my brother-in-law Punya’s wedding, and I’m thoroughly enjoying myself. Its a very well planned and fun filled wedding, and one of the activities that has added a special color to the proceedings is www.punyarutika.com, especially the dares and its responses.
Punya gave various dares to his friends and family to complete, record and then upload to the above website. The dares ranged from putting atta (flour) in a balloon and then bursting it by biting it with your teeth, to doing the reverse escalator, to going to McDonalds and ordering in Bhojpuri! Needless to say, such outlandish dares have spawned creative dare responses, and they have been a lot of fun to follow.
My particular dare was to redub any Hindi movie scene. Basically, I was supposed to choose a scene on youtube, mute it, and provide my own version of the conversation. I decided to move things up a notch. After all, its my little brother in law, and if I dont go all out effort-wise for his wedding, whats the point?
A little background – My Saale Sahab’s name is Punya, Anu (or Anubhav) is another Saala of mine who is getting married after 6 months, and Krishna is Shradha’s own brother. The following takes place 6 months from now, just before Anubhav’s wedding, and 6 months after Punya’s. Thats all the information you need!
However, instead of dubbing a scene on youtube, I decided to… Why dont you guys check it out yourself?
