  • I like organizing parties and meeting friends for coffee
  • The last time I bought something was two shirts for office - one was white with black stripes and the other one is black with white stripes (Well I wear black n white 6 days a week so for me that's two different shirts, and well if I took the 2nd one I got a 20% of on it)

  • I am thrilled cuz I managed to change the HTML code n my blog to upload this blogskin which I downloaded from the net
  • My tech savviness is average - the hubby more than makes up for my lack of it :P

  • I practised for hours in front of a mirror after I was adjudged as a 'poor speaker' in my first moot and for the next moot I was complimented by the Judge on my delivery
  • I really loved mooting (a moot is a mock court where students are given a case and a side and we prepare for it just like any self-respecting Supreme Court lawyer would do)

  • Give me a choice between chole and chicken, and I'd probably go for chole
  • I love green leafy vegetables (seriously)
  • My dad and I used to play Scrabble every sunday afternoon after lunch while I was in school. That was MY TIME with him
  • I miss my Dad. He's there but he's not there.
  • I miss my mom and her regular scoldings as well. I think she invented e-scolding and phone scolding
  • My favourite meal on a rainy day is khichdi (a dish which is a mix of lentils and rice) and fish fry and achar (pickles)

Hmm, Thats sup personified. gosh! u had the patience to write that much at one go...thats a new part of u!! Love u sweety. :)

Well Kas, thanks for adding one more facet - my impatience. But I guess drafting long documents is something which I can now do in my sleep also :P

well : i observe her day in and day out. I'm the fella referred to herein as "hubby"
Most of what she's written is correct... She's also changed a lot since we married. Supriya is a warm, caring, loving human being who does use tears as bargaining chips every once in a blue moon.
She has strong opinions and is fearless about expressing them.... Wouldnt be a bengali tigress without that

Soup it's indeed like a long draft, all in points :). But jokes apart, 1ce u go thru the blog u know wat dear Soup's feeling today! Luking fwd to more of those blogs.

I do no use tears as a bargaining tool Arjun...no false allegations please :P

Tnx Pal - You n Kas have known me for so many man years now where we all have come a long way from the three giggly school girls that we were to the professional lawyer/journalist/ almost Ph.D - but we still are giggly on the rare occasions that we do meet :)

Loved it. you are superb! muah :)
The small self observations, musings and thoughts were very well expressed.

I might cheat though!

Thnx Rach :)

And I'l point it out when you cheat :P

next time i'll keeeep mah camera handy

naiceeeee suppppppp! heheh! i like the red stilleto heel part btw hahah!!!!!u and ur shoe bags and ofcourse ur shopping woes. how can i ever forget them ? hehehe!

Arjun: You always have your camera handly in any case :P

Utopia: Ya you well know all my sad stories about shopping :P

Wow u did ur own html? nice.

this list is typical sup sis.

:) i knew 60% of it. didn't know that pink color was ur fav...

add a sense of humor to the list.

plus the fact that u don't know ur abba songs :P

we are really sisters. SO MANY SIMILARITIES!

plus, i think abhi in a month mujhe bhi e-scolding and phone scolding milega. :)

p.s. : yes,boro mami's boneless chicken is yummy! :D

and yes, jiju , you and your camera are inseparable. :)

I hate Colas...only when Im really thirsty n there's no other drink left :)

I like tangy food too.


Adi: yes I did my own HTML thingie...so cool na. Guess Arjun & your influence is finally rubbing off somewhat.

Moonstrummer: Never realized that you doubted that we were sisters. I shall have to take that up with your parents top see why you think that :P

Keshi: Blame my cola addiction on the fact that I'm paranoid about getting a water-borne disease. I'd rather have a cola than risk even a bottle of mineral water from a small shop. I take mineral water only from proper shops. That's the Calcuttan in me :P

Why Tis Hazari named so? Apparently the are used to be a garrison in the middle-ages, and had 30,000 sikh troops posted there. Or so the tale goes.

Hey thnx for adding to my gk Mistercrowley...and welcome to my blog :)
