Coming from a Punjabi family, I have not had the chance to stay close to my roots, thanks to the corporate setup of my parents' lifestyle.
The good thing, however, of all the travelling and moving around that I have done is that I have come across people from different communities and mindset.
This has not only molded my thinking but also given me a chance to experience different festivals. One such festival is Christmas.
Attending the midnight mass, lighting a candle in the church, seeing the Christmas tree, exchanging gifts, I have experienced it all. And since we are talking about Christmas, how can I forget gifts.
Well, we all know Santa is not real, but what if he was?
Dear Santa, I have been a good girl this year and so here is my wishlist...
I am a bibliophile turned media person. This has brought a shift in my reading patterns as well. For someone who couldn't go to bed without reading, I have now become a person who has to tweet before going to bed. So, a huge collection of book and a place to store and read the same is what I definitely want from Santa.
Since I have come home, my mother has been nagging me about my weight and how I walk with my tummy bulging out. Well, we have had some good arguments about the same because I am very proud of how I look. But, I also agree that I have gained weight. Join a gym, you say?
Boss time kiske paas hai?
After a 10am-9pm job, I definitely don't have the energy or time to go exercise or join a gym. So, I would go with a magical potion.
I have been walking around with a huge zit on my forehead for past one week. Why? Because my body is preparing me for my soon approaching periods.
Growing up I used to have such clear skin that every girl told me she was jealous of me, but now things are very different. So, a cream that will never allow a pimple to pop on my face is another item on my list.
I have been living on my money for past four years now, haven't asked any penny from my parents. Well, while this is something I am proud to brag about, it has also affected my shopping sprees.
I LOOOOVEE shopping, so much so that I have the latest trends in my wardrobe within days of it being launched, or rather I used to. So, Mr. Santa some shopping vouchers will also make me happy.
Time has posed a lot of challenges for me this year. I have been present in situations where I didn't want to be and I was absent from the places where I should have been present. All thanks to situations and the timing. So, I want something that changes all of that or rather makes it easier to deal with things in the future.
Santa Claus, I always face a problem with change, and unfortunately, none of the autowalas seem to have any of it. Can't we please get the old notes back?
Chai is bae, and I have no regret in saying that I can have chai at any time and hour of the day. But not from that Café Coffee Day machine, but a nice adrak wali chai. So, someone who can just prepare that chai for me every time I crave for a cup.
Chocolate does the work of alcohol for me. A chocolate addict, who gets high on chocolate, I would love a personalised chocolate fountain.
I haven't been on a proper holiday in over five years as I was busy slogging it off to make an identity for myself. This is one of the main reasons, I think I deserve a vacation. A vacation with family where we all just relax and not worry about anything.
