Retail therapy


Personally speakin, I have never ever been a big fan of shoppin (and neither is Bhavik)... But it was a different ball game altogether the other day... Bhavik and I were pooped out... As tired as can be... Meetings with the brokers all day had left us broke (well energywise, and otherwise)...


Sneha (Kataria) had spoken wid me ova the phone a coupla days back... And we had decided to meet on Friday (or was it sat) ... Anyways, she dutifully reconfirmed our plans a day prior to our meet; and i said yes... SO there was NO WAY I could back outta it...

I pushed the fatigue outta my mind (it took a lotta pushin) and I went to meet her at Nirmal Lifestyle... She had to wait for me (yeah, i was late as usual... but atleast this time, it was the broker's fault).. Like any true blue book lover would, she chose to wait at Crosswords... (And obviously ended up buyin some books in the bargain) Finally when we met (Bhavik was also wid me) we decided to settle down somewhere for awhile... But where? We wondered n pondered n roamed n hunted... Finally we decided to move outta Nirmals.. Believe it or not... We ended up sittin in front of a pan tapri, talkin, chattin, havin a ball...

I was nicknamed Hanuman by Bhavik (had happened a long time back); but we narrated the stories to her... It seriously felt like the good old days... When we used to sit at Jhunka's... Our pocket money sufficin in order for us to hav a gala time... :P

Okie okie... I know u guys are burstin to know why he nicknamed me Hanuman.. It has nuttin to do wid my face or me havin a tail (stop laughin u sickos) Apparently Hanuman used to be unaware about his powers until he was shown so or somethin like tat... (Bhavik knows the story n so does Sneha, they were noddin their head in unison) So I am like Hanuman, coz i seem to know all the right people with the ultra-right contacts, but I realize that we can use their help only at the last minute (But I still manage to save the day :P)

Okie then... We decided to head back towards the mall (we were at nirmal lifestyle, remember)... Why, you ask? Coz Sneha wanted to check out the yellow shoes we noticed earlier in the display window... YELLOW SHOES and SNEHA in the same sentence.... How the world changes.. *sigh* (Anyone and everyone who remotely knows Sneha wud also know that she is a self-confessed experimentophobic person - if there is even a word like tat... She has never ever gone beyond the normal colours that she's used to wearin.. N those r generally solid earthy tones...)

However, this time Bhavik n I managed to convince her about the shoes (oh, yeah, they did really look super hot) Bhavik Bhavik Bhavik... That cutiepie hates shoppin and here he was; givin fashion advice to Sneha as I took care of a work related phone call (Shyt, some serious role reversals happenin) But it was all worth it...

But before Sneha settled on the pair of yellow pumps (the one's she had originally seen in the display window); she made sure that we went through the painful ordeal of sorting through like a million wrong shoes only to go back to the one tat brought her to the store(we women always do that... this is why men like Bhavik hate shoppin)

I never thought some good ole shoppin wid an old college friend wud do me so much good.. But it did... Bhavik now likes ma friends... he doesnt mind shoppin (and seems to have developed a fair amount of fashion sense too)!!! Oh, this is a memory to reckon wid... For a 3rd person (in this case 4th) it may have seemed like jus another day, bt for me it wasnt.. It was a day that brought me closer to both Bhavik n Sneha!!! In their own lil ways, they reminded me of the everyday joys that make life worth livin!!! That's what a lil retail therapy can do for u!!!

Thanks to both of em!!! Bear hugs!!!

P.S.: Sneha, tis is my FM wid u... (Favourite memory)

It's a cool one, but rather a bit personal...Why the St Xaviers label?

Krishanu said...

I loved the name of your blog and the way it rhymes with your name...How do you get such good templates???

@Hary, welcome to the club hun... We ended up spendin an entire evenin together.. However, shoppin for one pair of shoes took us around 2 hours... (least minimum acc to my approximation) So u kinda get where am comin from..

@Krishanu... If you notice, most of my blog posts r personal in one way or another.. I used to write for the Times... The reason I quit was not for the loss of joy of writin.. But the pressure to always become a nameless entity (well not technically) all the time, writin bout everyone but u, kinda got to me!!! My fav kinda articles were reviews, since I cud mention my own experience at the outlet or showroom or salons..

About the templates, I go to a site called PYZAM.. it aint too complicated, but it sure is darn irritatin to figure out initially... Ask me for more if u like any of the templates there...

Hope it helps!!!

@Krishanu... The name Tabiness was inferred upon me by a beloved friend called Viveka... Veka, as I fondly call her...

N bout the tag of St.Xavier's, Sneha and I are college friends and went to Xavier's together!!!
