One Spring Sunday...

Hello readers,

Yesterday was a super Sunday. Wanna know why??? on. 
Apart from all the larger than life goodies that London offers, I always hated the cold climate of the year. Fortunately, I stepped in the county after the chilling climate has took off. Now its spring time here and I don't have words to express how much it elates my soul. 
Following a friend's suggestion to make my good day great, I made a visit to the Columbia Road Flower market...I can't call it a market coz the euphoria was such. Absolutely loved the energy there. Spectacular collection of flowers, coolest country music, sweet n spicy street side snacks, handmade artworks, splendid variety of garden decors and of course the most beautiful n warm spring time. Everything contributed to my super Sunday. I enjoyed each and everything there. There were huge collection of tulips, roses, tropical bunches, cherry blossoms..oh what not. What I seriously regretted about was, forgetting to carry my cammy (camera) and had to adjust with my phone camera which was already dying out of charge. 
My best click..I guess :D
The street side musicals were a such a good treat to the visitors...they seemed like a background score for the souls to rejoice. The Chinese n Indian snacks alongside chilled beers served by the street vendors were in full demand. Once u are there, u can't escape from buying the lovely colorful bouquets and can't skip a smile to the vendor's humorous selling charms. n So did I. I bought a beautiful purple and white tulip bunches for a price that is generally never available at markets. Herez flaunting my clicks.
Welcome Strings :)

Hope u people liked them..not that they are all great but to just give a glimpse of what went on there n  to share another side of the city that I gotto explore. excusez moi for the unorganized roll of pics.

Featuring JooJoo

Hi fellas,

I might have to start a separate sister blog to segregate my posts. Everything in here looks like cluster. Even this post might be an odd one out when compared to the previous set. But, excuse me. I can't wait to share this with u my readers.
JooJoo is an Iranian artist that I have come across while browsing artworks last year. She is one of her kind. Her works range from miniature art to jewel making to calendar making to clay art. I was so amazed to see her precision. There is so much to learn and get inspired from this incredible artist. Hatsoff to you Ms.Afsaneh. She has a store place in JooJoo@Etsy in case if you want to buy her stuff. Gals, I bet u can't stop appreciating this beautiful art work. Take a look. Herez featuring one of her masterpieces "Duet"(click on it to check it out).



What next???

Hi buddies,

After the 4 day fast by the 70year old Hazareji, what is the next move? Should we all happily rejoice that the demands were all promised to be satisfied. If so, our netas are known to break their promises. Himself not sure of the promise, Hazareji declared that he will hit back if appropriate action is not taken with in the timeline. But how long only a class or group of individuals will stand for billions of citizens? Is it not the responsibility for everyone of us to be clean of corruption. If we throw an insight into the roots of the corruption evil, we would definitely find common man responsible for larger portion of this knowingly and unknowingly. I have heard some activists stating that the politicians are only corrupt, we as individual citizens are clean and at least 90% of us are clean. I strongly feel it the other way. We only think we are not corrupt or whatever we do is very insignificant compared to the so called big scams and scandals happening in the country. If a very common person thinks his/her corrupted levels are very minor for his stage, a common politician also thinks his/her corrupted levels are also similar. Thus each one of us contributing to the total. So people lets practice to stop being corrupt. We are celebrating Hazareji's end of fast, but personally when will we celebrate the end of corrupt mindset that we all have. Everything and anything has become a reason for us to come on streets and celebrate. And not to forget and forgive the media which let its horses loose., crazily  asking innumerable question to the man who just finished ended his fast after 4 days. Give it a thought people. I personally believe that it is impossible to wipe out corruption just by marching on roads and shouting slogans. Lets not forget even the most remote level of corruption that we ignore is equally responsible to the biggest of scams. As long as the roots are not damaged, this evil tree still keeps  growing. So my dear fellow people, lets believe in individual sincerity and maintain integrity in achieving the same.

Halloooooooo Friends,

Congratulations to Team India for a victorious win. Our men in blue made it! The entire nation is extremely proud and happy about the victory. If there is something that unites India in spite of caste and creed that is nothing but Cricket and as everybody say it is a religion which has no difference n discrimination between people. Cricket is our religion and Sachin is an undisputed God of this religion. Who wouldn't want to worship him. He has become an icon for hard work and a brand ambassador for humbleness. 
Its kinda euphoria everywhere, though I missed watching and enjoying the victory in India...its still is ceremonious. The Cup has brought great joy all over the world among Indians. All of us had a biggest reason ever to celebrate n I got my cake ready :)!
Hereby I dedicate this post to our Proud Team. Jai Ho! Wishing we win many more victories as this.
