B’lore to Surat with CBF – Take #1

I clearly remember that day, I was sitting in the room thinking to myself, “Kuch toofani karte hain” and then I came across this…

“In two simple words-Loved it”, that’s exactly what I wrote to Saajan and Naman after reading their story. Capturing smiles and tagging the reasons behind them, that was Clothes Box Foundation (CBF) to me. Next all I wanted was, to be able to contribute to this organisation. One thing followed the other and there came the Cloth Drive idea! It certainly did change that bit of my life.

The discussions of when, where & how began! It all seemed okay until thoughts like these started to pop up- “Man this is Bangalore, the drive is not even a week away, I don’t know many people out here, what if no one turns up at the drive, what if it rains, what if I make myself look like a fool?” Phew!! Thankfully a bunch of great friends (Richa, DikshaPallav and Rajdeep) were by my side 🙂

To all my BITSian seniors whose presence made it all seem so much more worthwhile, a mere gesture of saying “thank you” wouldn’t do the deed.

So, came the big day- the cloth drive day!!!
It did rain but not enough to pour down our enthusiasm 😉

We collected, we sorted and then…

That day there was something so special about the wind, (not me) !
It whispered, “You go girl!” 😀

And so I did, but you gonna have to wait before I take you up there!
Till then why don’t you post a comment below to tell me what you think?

Go ahead fellas! 🙂

Of friendship and fate!

What day better than today (technically day before yesterday, when I actually started writing 😛 ) to share the glimpse of four friends who happened to each other by good fortune. And the wind by my side happened to have blown across three of them. 20140609_220237

Took me quite an amount of convincing to finally get her clicked, she who is driven by her passions. She loves to spend most of her time at a workshop of her college “Ashwa” (the one I mistook to be her boyfriend, well may be not 😛 )  which designs racing cars. Aspiring to become an IAS officer someday, Diksha Bhagat is that friend amongst the four, whose childish acts make them laugh, shout and yield the best friendship.   Next in line is TNG, as I have known her before my recent encounter with her in Bangalore. About Nidhi, well my quote from an early blog post (Shades of a woman, the colourful ones!), best describes her. It goes like:

“She is calm, she is gentle, she is the ocean of love;
Try harming what she loves and she’ll turn you upside-down and down-above”

She cannot stand even one ounce of dust or mismanagement in her room. And guess what? She shares her room with Diksha, the IAS lady who hardly cares about stuff on her bed or in wardrobe for that matter. (No offences, nothing personal! 😛 )
So how do they manage together???  Friendship my friend…

They belong to Ranchi, but never happened to cross each other’s paths untill they entered this city, Bangalore. Do I need to say, FATE it is… From what I have heard Aditi Arya, the one at the left happens to be the girl who is “the mummy” at the 3 BHK flat where these four fuse up. They say she cooks awesome, and is that goody-goody girl who is loved by all and cares for all.

                                           “Aap na ekdum chu**** hain!” I ain’t saying this for sure. Surprised you will be to know that the girl in the right, yeah the one who symbolises cuteness, (for most people & +1 on that from me) said these words very casually when I… uh, cut that.

I heard it right from her friends, studd only she is 😉 Any slang couldn’t be said in a way better than she does.

“Jaise ho, waise hi rehna”, most say so, least follow. Chabi Gupta comes in list of the least. She knows best what needs to be done to get the best DPs & the best party looks.

Phew! Thank god that they landed up by each other’s side in the pictures, which also had other people (To whom, I apologise to for cropping off, by the way it was the wind not me! 😀 😀 ) On that note, we shall take our leave now (me and the wind!).

We’d love to hear your comments. Go ahead post them below 🙂
