What's in the calling....

Long time ago Shakespeare said, "What's in the name?" Changing this expression a bit I want to say, "What's in the calling!" But in my experience lots of things depend upon what people call you. I am just stating my experiences. No offence intended. I will not be responsible if I touch any sour part or hurt anybody's ego! (This I must write in the end of this post in very small letters... But that is against my values!)

So I was saying, how do you react if someone, to be precise 'a shopkeeper' or 'a college student' (not so young than you) or your 'colleague' call you uncle or aunt unexpectedly? I want an honest answer! Do not lie. I will detect if you lie.

Oh yes, I know I have to answer that first. And the answer is - I don't mind! Really, I don't mind and I can prove it! Just stay with me till the end of this post.

All this thinking about calling started yesterday when I had gone to the sweet shop. When I entered the shop…

The Prank

What I am reading

I am going to write about the book I am reading. Yes I have read the 2ND book from Stephanie meyer's Twilight series-"New Moon". But that will come later. First I want to write about a very gentle,romantic book I have read. I am a big fan of romantic stories. So I read lots of Mills and Boon books. In these books I like Betty Neels more than others. But this is also not the subject of today's post.
So where ever I go generally I find a friend who is also an avid Mills and Boon reader. (Not at all a hard task!) We then share many books and talk about it for hours. (Better than gossiping!?) One such friend gave me this book. The condition of the book was not so good. It was not a Mills and Boon either. But she recommended this book so strongly that ignoring all my inner protests I started reading it. I completed the book in one day.( only 155 pages) I liked it so much. I shared that story with my comments with at least 5 more people including my Husband of course. …

Use the first letter of your name to answer each of the following questions. They have to be real… nothing made up! If the person before you had the same first initial, you must use different answers. You cannot use any word twice and you can’t use your name for the boy/girl name question. Have Fun!!

2. A four Letter Word: pomp

3. A boy’s Name: Prashant (I was thinking of writing 'Pandit' but...)

Many times we hide behind the mask. Many times we mask our emotions.Many time we show people our mask but real person is some where lost. Mask is a really essential thing in our everyday life. Without it we are lost!

Now I will go on with the review...
I kind of liked 'Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince'!The 'kind of 'represent that I did not completely like it.It is O.K.! I did not like it's end at all.I will rate it as 3.5 stars.I know it is because I have read the book first.So I expected much more from the film, but couldn't help it!

So far they hav…
