Gratitude List for December 2017 #GratitudeCircle

Though it is late, I cannot miss counting my blessings for December.
So, quickly on to my Gratitude List.

1. Dance classes
I never thought that I would teach dance when I learned it. I always thought I would become a professional dancer and perform which I did my whole life till now. I think it is time to take the next step and pass on what I have learned to my next generation. I am very grateful to my Dance teacher Ms. Parvathi Ramachandran for training me with patience.

My Dance classes have picked up from December and I am looking forward to focussing on teaching this year as well.

2. New friends
As we grow older and matured, It is difficult to find good friends. Did you observe? In this new place and new country, I took time to make friendships (Not a hi, bye type but helping each other type). This month and the last month, I have met many people and made new friends - I would say, good friends. I am grateful for this.

3. Zentangle
I tried a new art inspired by my fellow bloggers Raji and Shilpa. This art is different from others as the sky is the only limit to creativity. No two persons can draw the same as everyone thinks differently. It is very relaxing to my mind to draw Zentangles. I might have bored my Instagram and Facebook followers with some initial drawings and I am sorry for that.  You know, it's the excitement after all when we start a new hobby :-)
My Recent Zentangle


4. Books
I got some time to read good books this month. I enjoyed reading 'Empire' by Devi Yesodharan which is an inspiring Historical fiction. 'Destined' by Rubina is a Romance with a nice concept. Mama Graciela's Secret is a Children's story with moral. Black Peppers is a thriller set in 1700 AD in Kerala. Karna's Celestial Armour is a Mythological Fiction. I am grateful for the opportunity to read many genres and different stories.

5. More time with Kids
Even though it was tough being a judge most of the time when my both sons fight for every small thing, I survived their Christmas holidays. We read some good books, did some crafts together and also did some drawings. We watched some movies too.

My elder one's school will re-open day after tomorrow and I don't want to wake up early again for his school :-( Enjoyed good sleep till 8 am in the mornings in these holidays :-)

So, that was from my side. I hope, you had a great celebration welcoming the new year. Cheer up and Enjoy the coming days :-)

Until next time,

Upasna said...

Hey Ramya, What kind of dance form are you into? Its great to wake up late but again it's not practically possible for Mothers. Thanks for linking up with #QuotedStories.

mahathi ramya A said...

Iam teaching Kuchipudi Upasna. This is tradition dance from Andhra Pradesh.

G Angela David said...

Beautiful post, so nice to hear that you are teaching dancing, the zentangles looks interesting, loved all the images you shared. Wishing you a blessed 2018 and a healthy and harmonious year.

Esha said...

Nice to know that you too enjoyed a relaxed time over the holidays just as we did here! I loved waking up late as my son's school was shut for a week so I know the feeling you described. Small joys of life, as they say! Its really good that you've started exploring your creativity through dance and Zentangles...Way to go, Ramya! Wish you a very fulfilling and creative 2018!

Shirley Corder said...

I love this post. My word for 2018 is thankfulness and I'm wondering if we can't spin our posts off one another. This is my first link-up and it's based on Thankful_Thursday. Thankful Thursday Link Party?

SHANAYA TALES said...

It looks like you had a very fulfilling December.:) Wishing you a happy, healthy, and prosperous New Year.

P.S. Which dance form do you practice?

shilpa arya said...

Nice to hear that you are teaching what you learnt. Good that you had a good time with your kids during Christmas break.

Shirley Corder said...

Thanks for linking up, Ramya. Sorry, I think I called you by the wrong name!

Shailaja V said...

Awww, that is so sad! I liked this interpretation of the prompt, Mahathi :) The fact that butterflies can be touched in our dreams and not otherwise, seems so poignant and true, isn't it?


Thanks for writing and linking it up!


Shailaja

mahathi ramya said...

Thanks Khushboo.. :)

mahathi ramya said...

ya, you can Geetika.. Didn't feel it as must read.

Shailaja V said...

Very happy to hear that, Mahathi :) Thank you!

mahathi ramya said...

Thanks Datta.

Kushal Biswas said...

Davinci Codeis one of favorite books.


Greta list :)

mahathi ramya said...

Thanks Kushal.. Yes, really Davinci code is one of the best books

mahathi ramya said...

Yes Alexandra, me too waiting to read next novel of Dan Brown. Actually, his last novel 'The lost symbol' is also waiting in my wishlist :) Try other Indu Sundaresan novels too..

Geetika said...

I think i will give this book a pass....

nikhimenon said...

sidney sheldon has nothing to do with angel f d dark.its nothing but a pale copy of sheldons tell me your dreams .anyways ts better than tilly bagshawe's earlier work after the darkness

Khushboo Motihar said...

It is so nice to get to know Ganesha festival customs from all across the world. And the prasad you have prepared is looking absolutely delicious. :)

Datta Ghosh said...

That was a good list.

Nidhi Dorairaj Bruce said...

Super list. I love Sherlock Holmes too (one of the first gigantic tomes I actually managed to finish!).

mahathi ramya said...

thanks Krishna.. they are all sweet memories :)

Alexandra Madhavan said...

Love #1 and 3! I got my MIL hooked on Dan Brown, can't wait til his next novel comes out.

mahathi ramya said...

Thanks Shailaja :) really enjoyed this challenge, will wait for prompt every month :)

obsessivemom said...

Aww that's sweet and it's so rare to have no fights. God you should see my kids! Hut I cannot complain because my sister and I fought too. But this I know for sure when the Gods distribute siblings they make sure they are complete opposites.

Ajay Dhingra said...

I am planning to go for camping in Shimla in October. I have read several blogs and i am very impressed. I am looking for a travel buddy.

mahathi ramya said...

Thanks Shailaja. It's my pleasure to participate in this flash fiction with prompt. Really its sad for a school girl na to grow saplings for a school project to get disappointed at the end.

Anirudh shetty said...

Woaahhh...didnt see that coming huh :) :D

mahathi ramya said...

Thanks Anirudh :)

Shailaja V said...

Awww, how sad for her! Really tragic! I can just imagine her pain when she took all that care.

Thank you for linking this up!

Vishal Bheeroo said...

Oh! That's so sad but brilliantly woven.

Shailaja V said...

Lovely and tragic at the same time :(

mahathi ramya said...

Even iam surprised sometimes, why we didnt have any fights :p Ya, God creates siblings who are completely opposite :)

Shanéy Vijendranath said...

Lovely!

mahathi ramya said...

Thanks :)

Purple Bee said...

nice post...festivals are also a time to teach kids the joy of sharing. They can help pack sweets and share them with family and friends

Prakash Parag said...

As every year many thousands of tourists visit Shirdi, therefore, Shirdi hotels is the prime need and there are number of hotels and lodges are available. In Shirdi, you will get number of hotels that ranges from budget to five stars and these hotels provide excellent facilities to their customers.

obsessivemom said...

Great ideas Mahathi. This year we decided to make a conscious effort to involve the kids more in each aspect of Diwali - including the cleaning. And it turned out a lot of fun.

mahathi ramya said...

true! we should teach kids the joy of sharing on festivals. Gifting sweets is an important tradition for Diwali

zoey said...

Coorg is a beautiful place and great destination for the tourists indeed. It has got hills, waterfalls, plantations and nature view. The photos you shared here are quite good and great travelogue too. In Coorg, there are many homestays and hotels, which you can make use of for your comfortable stay. BotaRoyal is a good hotel in coorg which provides you a luxury stay http://www.botaroyal.com

mahathi ramya said...

Thanks Nidhi.. For me, Sherlock Holmes is the first book which interested me in hobby of book reading

shruti said...

Such a feel good post! :) I used to wait for santa and tried to wake up couple of times in the night to check if my presents had arrived. Though we never really celebrated Christmas, My dad's best friends always invited us over Plum cake & Christmas carols were a big part of my growing up.

mahathi ramya said...

Good to know Shruthi.. Really! As kids we used to wait for Christmas.. not only for Santa but also for holidays :p

Priyanka RoyBanerjee said...

Your post evoked my christmas memories too, having studied in a convent. The carols and christmas decorations before holidays are unforgettable. Merry Christmas to you!

rachnap said...

Your musings took me back to my childhood. Carols were a big part of my childhood too.

mahathi ramya said...

Glad that this post reminded your childhood days Rachana

Vartika said...

nice post.. I like this book very much :)

mahathi ramya said...

Glad that it reminded u good old school days manogna. They are really very good memories ☺

Tuhin Deshamukhya said...

hello Mahathi, I would like to appreciate you for raising such an important issue. Cleanliness is something we Indians still need to learn.
The stain marks on the walls of our buildings leave a very negative impression in the minds of our kids...Unless we learn to change our habit it is futile to expect this from our kids...

mahathi ramya said...

Thanks for dropping bý Vartika ☺

mahathi ramya said...

Thanks Tuhin. Let's hope that we showcase a cleaner India to our kids in future. I hope swachcha Bharat campaign will do some good

archonline said...

Yes. People needs to change the mindset. The sad fact is the educated people are also doing the same mistakes even if they had the education which would change their mindset..

mahathi ramya said...

mm.. i too think the same Roshni.. Environment and surroundings impacts children.

mahathi ramya said...

Yes Archana. That change in mindset is required and may be we can instil the same in our kids.

obsessivemom said...

Makes sense Mahathi. If only more people would understand the importance of cleanliness!

mahathi ramya said...

Thanks Nikita. Glad that you liked my review. Will surely check yours.

Nikita Soni (Njkinny) said...

LOved your balanced review Mahathi.. I completely agree with you. I too was not really engaged in the book. I expected more from it.

Loved your blog and have followed via GFC

Roshni Aamom said...

It's sad that our kids have to see such bad examples of grownup behaviour all the time!

Murthy Kvvs said...

Interesting Ramya.Hope you fetch the further echelons of your career.By the way ..My daughter is also studying fourth year B.tech.

mahathi ramya said...

Ya might be true murthy.. but still iam happy to read her books for that sidney Sheldon novel style

Murthy Kvvs said...

I have read The tides of memory some months back.Tilly is great but she doesn't possess something that Sidney Sheldon got , the sharp and racy feel.

mahathi ramya said...

Thanks murthy sir for dropping by.. it is a pleasure to meet new readers on my blog

The Untourists said...

Coorg has been one of my most memorable and beautiful trips. I didn't know about the monastery in Kushalnagar, only about Bylakuppe.

Amar said...

Cool photo-post. Really liked the narration.

mahathi ramya said...

Thanks Aditi

Kulpreet Yadav said...

I agree to a certain extent, but would rather give the book a 3 star. www.kulpreetyadav.com

mahathi ramya said...

Then you should surely visit that Buddhist monastery. Very peaceful place. Thanks for dropping by :-)

mahathi ramya said...

Thanks Amar. It's nice place. Glad that you liked my narration.

Amar said...

Read me at www.commentaryofheart.blogspot.com

mahathi ramya said...

Thanks Nidhi

Aditi Kaushiva said...

Lovely photo post! :)

mahathi ramya said...

may be that's because book is written in man's perspective and you can relate to it well :-) thanks for dropping by Kulpreet

Manish Purohit said...

Brilliant write up...couldn't agree more - we don't need a single day to express gratitude to our parents !!!

Amar said...

If you can, visit my blog at www.commentaryofheart.blogspot.com

DEESHANI BATRA (DB) said...

Nice post and quite helpful :)

mahathi ramya said...

glad that it's helpful Deeshani, thanks for dropping by :-)

Destination Infinity said...

Thanks for nominating me for this challenge. I will publish three quotes on three consecutive weeks, not days, as I am trying to maintain a weekly posting schedule. The first post should be up this Friday :)


"Good or bad, everything is an opportunity to learn something." is a good quote I too believe in.


Destination Infinity

Nidhi Dorairaj Bruce said...

Nice! Makes one long to go to the older world for a brief while :)

mahathi ramya said...

Thanks for accepting the challenge Rajesh :-)

mahathi ramya said...

Thanks Corinne.

mahathi ramya said...

Completely agree.. it's not easy Robyn. yes reminders help. Interests and hobbies are unique to every individual, so we should somehow set time for them.

Corinne Rodrigues said...

Much food for thought here, Mahati. I'm not a mom, but I do believe that we must walk the talk with the next generation!

mahathi ramya said...

True Corinne and you know it's not easy for parents ☺

mahathi ramya said...

Thanks Shilpa. Actually i had to cut my post short so that it fits in 100 words :-)

shilpagarg said...

Well said, we have to lead by example for our children. Love the way you have amalgamated the quote challenge and WT picture prompt, Mahathi :)

mahathi ramya said...

Thanks Rashmi :-) it's my pleasure to join #mondaymusings

Rashmi karthik said...

Cheers Lady! I see you enjoy motherhood. Since I am still not there, I will not be able to share more on this topic. Definitely, Kids are pure joy for what ever they do. Thanks for posting!

Corinne Rodrigues said...

Every one of them is important. Right now, 'disconnect' appeals to me the most! Looking forward to reading more of your writing, Mahati.

Laurel Regan said...

It's definitely important to be an example of the change we want to see!

DEESHANI BATRA (DB) said...

nice quotes Ramya. very motivational :)

Ajay Pai Aj said...

Congratulations ! Glad to read that you lived the moment.

mahathi ramya said...

It's my pleasure Laurel

mahathi ramya said...

Thanks Manish.

mahathi ramya said...

Thanks Sheela. Glad that you too agree.

Sheela K Kumar said...

Exactly...we need to show them instead of telling them. Being a role model for our children is very important.....I completely agree.

Corinne Rodrigues said...

Very powerful quote! I have learned to turn disappointments into gratitude and that helps to stay enthusiastic.

Corinne Rodrigues said...

I guess most of us are this way, Mahathi. I have no kids to run after, but somedays I feel I'm playing catch up all day long! Thanks for taking up the tag.

Ajay Pai Aj said...

Wow! I woke up at 5 AM by accident today. Post reading your write up, i have the urge to have this steamed cup of coffee sitting in my balcony viewing the greenery outside my house. The hot sip of coffee along with my family will definitely be well rejuvenating.

sacha said...

This was very deep and true. .the mindset that we choose to have when we start our day will impact our perception for that day.

mahathi ramya said...

Yeah.. it's our choice to choose to have a great day. Thanks for dropping by ☺

mahathi ramya said...

Glad that you experienced a fresh day Ajay . True! These small things in the morning and their impact - I realised it very late.

Jaibala said...

I like starting early, and luckily my kid wakes up early too. Its a great habit to have and gives such a nice begining to the day.

mahathi ramya said...

Thanks for dropping by mimi. It's really great that you chose happiness and lived every moment. Because it's not as easy as said.

Vinay Leo R. said...

LOL :D My childhood would have been a whole lot easier if that had happened! :) Cute reply from the kiddo.

Leo @ I Rhyme Without Reason

mahathi ramya said...

true Jaibala.. was not an early riser, slowly getting into that habit :-)

shilpagarg said...

A nice gratitude list. We need to be appreciative and grateful for everything we have and everything we are going to receive too. Attitude of gratitude is a must have for all of us. :)

mahathi ramya said...

yes Shilpa.. liked this word 'Attitude of gratitude' :-)

Parul said...

I know Bahubali is the hot topic. Many in my office are also talking about it. Let me know how you find it :)

Laurel Regan said...

Beautiful gratitude list! Thank you so much for sharing your post on the Gratitude Linkup. :)

mahathi ramya said...

Sure will let you know Parul ☺

mahathi ramya said...

Thanks Laurel. My pleasure to join gratitude linkup.

elly stornebrink said...

I so agree with you Mahathi in terms of having the basic needs met, we are most fortunate and more than so many others in the world today. A great list you have with supportive colleagues, friends, and family as well as your passions to sustain you: how wonderful! :) <3

Lata Subramanian said...

More than met expectations. Very entertaining and well made. Providing you don't take your cinema too seriously

usha menon said...

Ramya, it is heavenly to get up early and enjoy nature at its best. You must have felt the difference.

mahathi ramya said...

Is it? I'M a coffee person Vinitha. I too like ginger cardamom tea in the evening

mahathi ramya said...

ok, i understand, It's about a Telugu Indian movie. Thanks for dropping by Francene.

mahathi ramya said...

Is it? even i wanted to watch as soon as possible Lata. Thanks for dropping by :-)

Vinitha said...

I like to enjoy my morning tea alone. :) That's the perfect way for me to start the day. :)

Francene Stanley said...

Living in England, I haven't heard of this actor. I'm not a person who follows celebrities anyway. Of course, when I was younger, I loved the screen hero's so maybe it's my age that is voicing that opinion.

Ravi said...

Hi ,

Every where I am reading like addition of Spouse name in one of Parents passport is mandatory for infants passport. Is that true? What is your case btw.

I am planning to apply for my kids passport. I am thinking like is it mandatory to have spouse name in one of our passport. Please let me know the detaisl you have.

mahathi ramya said...

Haven't read about the rule that it's mandatory to have spouse's name on passport. No idea about this. We had both of the names in the passport, so this question didn't arise.
I think, if spouse's name is not included we can show marriage certificate as an extra proof.

mahathi ramya said...

true Robyn. didn't realize this until i thought of my gratitude list :-)

Francene Stanley said...

I wouldn't say your memory is poor, just because you forgive yourself and forget a bad incident. That's the best thing you can do--learn and move on.

Parul said...

Interesting! Yes, I heard that the end is as abrupt as the death of Jon Snow in GoT.

Parul said...

Oh I agree with you there. That's a must for a great story even if there is to be sequel.

mahathi ramya said...

True. . Good to prepare gratitude lists :-)

mahathi ramya said...

Parul, what i feel is even though we have a sequel movie, every part should be complete by itself. In this case, until we see part 2, we wont get any idea about the story and movie seems incomplete raising lot of questions in audience.

Geets said...

That's the best thing she thought in recent times :)


Cheers

mahathi ramya said...

Thanks Sini :-)

Robyn said...

Sometimes it can be so easy to take the everyday things for granted and forget they are blessings too. Great list of reminders!!

Ravi said...

Thanks for the reply. Did you take any attested copy of passport as it is mentioned in list of documents?. I have appointment tomorrow for my kid. I am just worried if attested copy is necessary or not.

Ravi said...

thanks again. they mentioned attested not self attested. we don't need it any attested from gazetted officer, right?

Sini Mathew said...

Good to see that you are staying positive and taking the bull by the horn. Good Luck.

mahathi ramya said...

but i clearly remember that i have submitted self attested copies. Not sure, if rules changed later.

mahathi ramya said...

Thanks Parul :-)

mahathi ramya said...

yes, but need not worry. They ask for self attested copy, so you can sign on xerox copies and submit.

mahathi ramya said...

Thanks Francene.

mahathi ramya said...

True Francene. I too don't prefer novels with complex words

Inderpreet Kaur said...

Nice take on the prompt...... I think, good he overheard!!

anamika agnihotri said...

Oh no!! This place seems to be a fleecing ground. These days visiting well known places of worship and maintaining your sanity is getting more difficult than visiting a mall.

Parul said...

I visited Kemp Fort when I came to Bangalore 10 years back. Loved it that time. There were no tickets then, no frustrating queues and the experience was wonderful. But an year later when I went again, i was disappointed. 8 years on- I haven't visited again and your post tells me that things have gone from bad to worse.

mahathi ramya said...

Unfortunately yes Anamika. But, I think Iskon temple is maintaining diginity even after many years. Another good place that I love in Benguluru.

Francene Stanley said...

it must be wonderful to meet your good friend. I've moved away from my country of birth and have never made a friend. That's the thing I miss most. But, I'm grateful to correspond with so many positive people in Facebook groups. Blessings.

mahathi ramya said...

Thanks Corinne.. I am glad that I am participating in gratitude circle, feeling good making lists, being grateful to GOD for whatever is provided to me :-)

mahathi ramya said...

true Francene, it's great to meet old friends.
Even I am grateful to facebook as i could connect to old friends :-)

Laurel Regan said...

Very encouraging list - thank you so much for sharing it on the Gratitude Linkup. :)

D.D.S said...

Thank you for being a part of b00k r3vi3ws Tours and hosting Ms.Sarah on her special day!

mahathi ramya said...

Thanks parul

mahathi ramya said...

ya Nikhil you are right. Angel of the dark is not a direct book from sidney. This is the recent book that i read from Sidney. Earlier books were very good, but as I mentioned, it's difficult to pick one or 2 from his books. All seem like unique in their storyline/ charcaterization. Thanks for dropping by :)

Parul said...

Glad you met a friend, had some good family time, work wise and more. May you be blessed!

mahathi ramya said...

Yes Parul. It was wonderful earlier. But now it's worse. Even recent reviews from travel sites show negative.

mahathi ramya said...

Thanks tulika :-) yeah.. will be lot of fun while involving kids in cleaning and house decoration for festivals. Sometimes they mess it up though :-) more patience required

Dr Roshan Radhakrishnan said...

Good to see happiness at both work and personal life. That in itself is a rare and coveted combo for so many :)

mahathi ramya said...

Thanks Vidya Suri for dropping by. It's great pleasure for me to join gratitude circle

mahathi ramya said...

Thanks Priyanka ☺

mahathi ramya said...

Sooo happy that you commented on my blog dr. Roshan :-) yes..it's good combo this month.

mahathi ramya said...

True Laurel. Thanks for dropping by ☺

Vidya Sury said...

Thank you for joining us, Mahathi! So happy to see your August gratitude list. May September be even more wonderful! Love, Vidya

Prasanna Dasari said...

A very good perspective view on success Ramya :)
Nice and elegant blog you have.

Francene Stanley said...

Hmm. That's a big list to scroll though. As to the plot, everybody wants a second chance so this book should keep readers on their toes.

Sarah Elle Emm said...

Thank you so much for hosting my book today! :)

mahathi ramya said...

It's my pleasure Sarah :-)

Ruchi Singh said...

Thank you for hosting my book!

LuAnn Braley said...

This sounds like a worthy cause! My own county in Kentucky is one of the poorer ones in the state (many farming families). Luckily, there is a good low or no pay option for breakfast and lunch for school children. It is so important for them to have adequate nutrition in order to do well in school. Looking forward to reading more of your challenge posts!

mahathi ramya said...

Thanks shailaja :-)

mahathi ramya said...

It's great that you are supporting a child Leanne. thanks for dropping by :-)

mahathi ramya said...

ya.. Anyways we will teach our kids the importance, hope our next generation gives more importance to cleanliness.

i b arora said...

good

nabanita21 said...

Thanks for sharing... I do whatever possible when I can see my money actually being used for those who need, if that makes sense :)

mahathi ramya said...

true Nabanita, that's the only concern. Transparency on each penny spent from NGO is more valuable.

mahathi ramya said...

thanks Corinne.. yes, that's the way to be positive and learn from failures

Francene Stanley said...

I wish I could help all the poor children in the world. Such inequality. So unfair.

mahathi ramya said...

Yes Francene. It would be good if we can help all poor children.

mahathi ramya said...

that's the best way to donate Corinne.. I agree.

mahathi ramya said...

mm.. Might be, i might have tuned my memory to learn and move on :-) Good thing anyway Francene.

mahathi ramya said...

yes Francene :-) Bingo as in an idea strikes like a bulb :-) thanks

Francene Stanley said...

I'm sure this will be helpful to people in your area. It's always such a long involved process, but I suppose it has to be that way.

mahathi ramya said...

Yes, Francene. It's one of the important documents from Government of India, so requires a lot of verification of identity and address documents.

mahathi ramya said...

Thanks luAnn. Wanted to make this post more detailed as it might save someone's time applying for passport.

Vidya Sury said...

No mention of the police verification eh, Mahathi? My son's reissue application is stuck because he left for college the day before the police turned up for verification and now it looks like a long and obstacle filled road :) There is absolutely no change in the info except that the passport's validity was up. Sigh.

Thanks for posting this.

mahathi ramya said...

Thanks Reet for dropping by. Waiting to win this book in giveaway :-)

Parul said...

Lovely list you have there! You are right when you say - roof above the head, food to eat and clothes to wear, we are certainly lucky than many.
happy August to you too!

Francene Stanley said...

Three great reviews from you. They sound like good books. And congratulations on your blog's success.

Corinne Rodrigues said...

Also now the Aadhar card is not mandatory - there's a Supreme Court ruling on that.

mahathi ramya said...

ha ha.. really, this light bulb concept is age old :-) thanks for dropping by anamika.

Vinitha said...

I don't watch much movies nowadays. I like the sensible movies not the overdramatic ones. Lovely quote, Ramya. :)

mahathi ramya said...

true Leanne, even though many movies are not practical, we can enjoy them

Bikramjit said...

I think LOVE is overstated.. in reality it does not work the way we think it works ..

I dont watch love films anymore :(

Bikram's

Sreesha Divakaran said...

The quote is so true!

mahathi ramya said...

True bikram. Love is overstated in some films.

Francene Stanley said...

Hehe. It must be hard to ignore primal urges in the jungle. I suppose that's because there is no technology to distract us.
Good review.

nikita aka njkinny said...

Thanks for participating and I am glad you enjoyed the book :)

-Nikita @Njkinny Tours & Promotions

mahathi ramya said...

Thanks Francene

mahathi ramya said...

Thanks Indrapreet

mahathi ramya said...

I would have mentioned that Vidya Sury, will edit my post to add details about it. I know, how difficult it is if stuck at that stage. For my reissue of passport, it was in police verification stage for a long duration and I had to follow up with police station many times. But, these days, Enquiry officer is calling up ahead before coming for verification, they don't want to miss the bribe :p.

Mukulika Basu said...

Sensible quote! I find it difficult to put my thoughts into words. I find myself concurring with Christopher Poindexter who writes, " I loved her not for the way she danced with my angels, but for the way the sound of her name could silence my demons"

mahathi ramya said...

Nice quote Mukulika. I am glad you liked this post

Shalini said...

I love that! Love Love Love that quote :)
And yeah, I always have a soft corner to the Viliian in movies :P

LuAnn Braley said...

I was looking for you on Twitter?

mahathi ramya said...

I don't use twitter much so didn't create an account for my blog. My personal twitter I'd is mahathi_ramya
