WWW Wednesday 5 (23rd October 2013)

WWW Wednesday is a weekly reading event hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading. To play along, you just have to answer the following three (3) questions…
  • What are you currently reading?
  • What did you recently finish reading?
  • What do you think you’ll read next?
My answers to the above questions are:

What are you currently reading? I am reading "Arjuna-Saga of A Pandava Warrior Prince" by Anuja Chandramouli. I have received this book from the publisher Leadstart Publishing Pvt. Ltd.  for a review.

What did you recently finish reading? The last book I finished reading is 'Marry Go Round' by Sadiqa Peerbhoy-- my review at Natasha'z Words. I had received this book also from the publisher Leadstart Publishing Pvt. Ltd.  for a review.
What do you think you'll read next? I am most likely to read "A Salesman's Lessons" by C R Jena which I received from the publisher Leadstart Publishing Pvt. Ltd.  for a review.

PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT with either the link to your own WWW Wednesdays post, or share your answers in a comment here (if you don’t have a blog). Thanks!

Random Feels #2: I Hate When... (What makes me angry?)

In everyday life, there are so many things that make me mad. Call me judgmental, I simply can not stand certain behaviour, conduct and nature or when I am pushed into certain situations. I am trying to list down my hate points, basically the things which make a angry lady, below:

I hate when:
  • Someone tries to use my stuff without my permission or in my absence.
  • Anyone lose or damage my things when I lend them (or worse, without my permission).
  • Someone does not keep my things back in place after borrowing them. 
  • I have to lend my clothes
  • People say that washing, cleaning and cooking are not meant to be done by men (as if household chores are a woman's birthright).
  • People think that women staying at home only rest.
  • People think that the only thing women should do after getting married is to produce babies. 
  • Men assume that women are meant to be dumb.
  • Someone thinks he/she is the only one who goes to work/study.
  • Anyone treats home like a guesthouse. 
  • I have to sleep in a room full of people
  • Anyone is materialistic. 
  • The first thing people notice about things is their price tag
  • Someone's behaviour changes with every family member
  • People preach with incomplete knowledge. 
  • People do not follow what they preach
  • Ladies use their tear ducts to gain sympathy
  • People showing 'ustadi'  (loosely translated as 'I know all/I do all' actions especially in presence of a larger audience) 
  • I find dirty dishes in the sink when I wake up in the morning
  • People do not wash their own undergarments
  • Someone lies to me and worse when I find out
  • Someone do not adhere to what they say
  • Someone do not apologize when they are in the wrong
  • Someone is rude to their parents/grandparents
  • Anyone takes me for granted
  • People are over-smart
  • People honk and honk in traffic jams and signals
  • People move around in latest cars but throw empty packets and bottles on the road
  • People take the phrase 'nothing's original' literally. 
I know the list is quite long but I can not help it. But I am sure that you will be able to relate to some point or the other. So do share below as to what makes you a angry person.

Random Feels #1: I miss..

I believe everyone of us misses at least some part of our bygone days. Given a choice we would definitely want to relive some particular moments of our lives. Of late, I have been thinking of many such things. And it seems I am missing a lot of bygone moments these days.

I miss..
  • Bicycling in meandering lanes
  • Spending winter vacations in the winter sun, reading and making crafts
  • Playing carrom with my grandparents
  • My paternal grandma
  • My parents taking care of me
  • Deta teaching me how to paint
  • Ma asking me what I want to eat
  • My school days
  • Sharing a room with my sister
  • Staying in the hostel
  • Staying alone
  • Having a dog
  • Assam rains and the music they create on the rooftops
  • Going for walks on moonlit nights
  • Playing cricket with a bamboo stick and a hand ball
  • The time when cousins were as good as siblings
  • The time when Mtv and Channel V were the only channels I watched
  • My time in Kolkata
  • My hostel bed by the window, the adjacent trees and their feathered inhabitants
  • Having instant noodles for lunch/dinner
  • Being in my comfort clothes all the time in the house
  • Ma when I am sick
  • Watching my favourite shows on television
  • Being responsible only for myself
  • Not feeling grumpy all the time
  • Durga puja in Jorhat
  • The excitement of being home during festivals
And many a times I miss being the sane me...
