250!!!

hola! here we are... to clarify... suruchi DID mail me the post y'day... but lazy me didn't format it... so here we go! HAPPY 250 TO THIS SPACE! the rest has been written by suruchi. reasons on why her will be done in a post later...
do i hear the drum-roll...??

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
It's party time… rayshma’s 250th post! Whoa! So much, she writes! She should write a book instead, what say guys? Instead of doing all those tags…

In the industry where we both worked, we create specials on every occasion. Specials are essentially repackaging of the existing content. For eg,if Kareena Kapoor’s b’day is on the 12th of September; then we package all her content into one and say it's the "Kareena Kapoor B’day Spl"!! Or, if it's a New Year package, it will essentially be – Best of 2008! So,to commemorate rayshma’s 250th post and make it really special, I am going to pull out the best of her posts for all of you to read and enjoy…

This blog has a unique and constant deck placement in my life and plays a very vital role. Whenever I miss talking to her, feel low, need a good friend to bitch about anything, I just login and read it and it helps me! So this post is partly for her and mostly for me, so that I just read what I intend to :) and for all of you, who - I can make out from your comments - do enjoy reading her blog as much as I do.

She is a cat actually, can meow when hungry, getting bored, and feeling lazy/sleepy. So, if you are around and you hear a meow it has to be her. A meow can pop up on your chat window also. She uses her claws also - so beware - and has attitude to match her wits! Read on... this & that for her confessions.


A firm believer in Alice In Wonderland, Mermaids, Santa, Peter Pan, Fairies, Vampires and happily ever after endings… I don’t
really think she is silly
You should keep on believing and the Dream that you wish for will come true…

She is a drama queen & does nautanki almost everyday! She will make puppy faces in front of the boss pleading innocence, will ask dumb questions to the clients to prove ignorance, will change the topic very smartly when she is sure of being trapped.


On this occasion, i bestow the title of Drama Queen upon her!

We both freak out on Bollywood, and can change any of the mushy bland Bollywood movies into a comedy on which only both of us can laugh endlessly! We enjoyed HDKG soo much that both of us keep reiterating the movie dialogues till day!

I do sing songs (I have a very bad voice) and this BITCH used to disown me every time I used to start singing and used to look or start walking in a different direction! She was scared someone would consider us beggars and give us a penny! huh! I still insist on singing...

A complete foodie, she taught me how to love food and enjoy it; which did help me put on kilos, but no regrets... I have started enjoying food! She can eat food she likes in like a few secs and the one she doesn't like, she can munch on it for ages! She has an aversion for everything that looks green and esp has dhaniya *coriander* on it! But if you give her chicken, cheese, parathas they will vanish in no time!

Loads of people ask me *they consider me to be her local guardian & I think I should know all about her!* on why she is named rayshma! For all those queries, the answer is as she aptly describes here

We both are a purrfect team when have to pull someone down, be wicked & have a blast! We drove AM, who used to sit next to us completely mad! Oz, our dear train companion - we actually made her believe that a Mumbai local train stops at Santacruz for a longer duration cause they change the driver at that station. As my hubby says, "Suruchi not working on a particular day is more troublesome than suruchi & rayshma talking"

On the wickedness, couldn't have missed this one.

I am happy *more than her mom* that V married her and she is happy with him! Was really scared of all the weird & quirky people that surrounded her. Would always think 'what if she gets married to one of those M** & N** types!!'

Love her for her love of books! She can spend hours & hours reading/selecting books. And I like the way she sums up her readings...

This post is to her and to this space which makes me miss her a little less!

Hey Rayshma..

You have a wonderful blog .. I landed on this blog yesterday from your comment on another blog that I read regularly – mad momma/usha/hiphop .. I am not sure which one !!!!

Anyways back to ur blog …
I read ALL ur blogs yesterday and I liked ur style of writing…

Probably the reason I liked ur blog might have a lot to do with our similarities…

I’ve lived in Mumbai and love it the most – I am now in TX and would have been a resident of CS had I not got an admit from another uty ..
I also lived a life of “housewife” – I know you don’t like that term – neither do I ;-)after having led a “been there, done that “kind of hip-hop professional and personal life....
Thanks to these blogs – I now know that I am not the only weird one around …
When I was at home for one year – I had exactly the same conversations with my husband that you had wrt to driving (y should I learn to drive .. ;-) and ( not leaving the house for days – I don’t even go out to check the mail !!!) …
Infact my husband had been to London for 10 days and he went to check mail from the airport even before coming home coz he was sure I would not have done that even though I was expecting my admission decision from various universities… But I was happy – internet, tv, mobile phone ( there we differ), a bed and a fridge full of goodies can keep me happy for years …( I don’t have to even see another human being ) .. I have lived like that for weeks when I was a student on my study leave :-)

Anyways – wish you all the best with whatever u plan to do – studies/work/blogging and keep writing and continue to entertain us :-)
I keep visiting CS , since the uty over there is my husband’s alma mater and so I guess from now on any smart Indian girl I run in to will make me think – is that you :-)

- Regards
Anamika …

PS - hope you don't mind the loooooooong comment ...
and yeah congrats on the 250th post !!!

alice-in-wonder said...

Awwww...that's such a nice (albeit senti ;) ) post
And yeah, it was definitely worth the wait.
Err...Suruchi, do you also do guest posts for others? :P

Suruchi said...

@raysh: pls to change N to P or J or both ;)..and correct the typos!

@plush: cldn't have escaped without doing that 250th one!!

@Pavi: pls do read the highlighted posts...

@galadriel: she never told me what to write...but guess all u guys just love whatever she writes...no? so the 250th post couldn't be anything else other that this...could it be?

@K3: ya she does the brainwashing part v well!u can get a confirmation from vin on tht one!

@alice: can give it a thought! we have a similar blog name to start with :)

rayshma said...

suruchi: i am not correcting anything! send me that disney image na?! i louved it! jpeg bhejo :P jpeg karna nahi aata? bhushi ko poocho?! LOL!!

alice: suruchi's thinking abt it... that can only be a good sign ;)

anamika: i LOVE ur comment. seriously! it's just SO straight from the heart!
if u ever wanna catch up when u're in CS.. or even generally... let me know.. will give u my number and id. and i won't publish comments with ur details! :D that is, if you aren't too shy. and i promise, i'm not into serial killing or sales! :D just a bored woman trying to find like-minded individuals! :)

do u blog anywhere?

hope to see u around - here, if not in CS! :)

dottie: hehe.. yeah. that, or i'm good with the puppy faces.. ;)

k3: brainwash? me? nah nah... i'm the one without the brains, u see.. ;)

galadriel: no matter what u say... u are NOT doing a guest post for me. EVER! :P though u'd be a good candidate. what with the grad school & stuff! :P

pavi: don't disown me after u read them all! :D

plush: unemployment does strange things... some people crib. i blog! :D
and naah.. .I was the first! hehehe!!

Lena said...

umm... thank you (and i mean both of you, girls) for this wonderful post. Now i know why suruchi took so long to write this one, she might have been stuck with rereading archive posts when she was choosing posts to link to. I am glad i landed up once on this blog, you bring a lot of positive emotions, rayshma :) And thats why being selfish enough i want to celebrate 500th post soon ;)

Congratulations once again!!! :)
