Eyes Eyes Baby

So the health issue continues. As if the tummy problems were not enough, since yesterday my right eye is hurting. First I simply ignored that I must have rubbed it hard.. Today morning when I checked, I found a tiny-winy swelling inside the lower eye lid. It hurts every time I blink and feels miserable. On close look, seems like its a sty... There is a swelling and looks like a small pimple has developed inside the corner of the eye.

Its becoming red and getting worse. With a wedding in the family just a couple of days, I am worried. More than that, I am thinking how this has happened. I dont share my towels, hankies with anyone. I am very particular about personal hygiene. I dont use any make up. I have not used any new cosmetic since my eyes are very sensitive to any type of cosmetic. There are supposedly good brand eye-liners but I cant use them. Keeping my eyes open is painful as of now since I have to blink. Washing with water at regular intervals gives me temporary relief.

Having constant health problem is driving me nuts. Mom being Mom thinks that someone has put a nazar on me.. :-) I dont blame her. She is more worried than I am.. I am going to see a doctor in the evening and hope that it is nothing major. I want to look my best all the time as always..

Tummy Problems

Offlate, my stomach is not keeping fine. No matter what I eat, it is not able to digest and it gets upset which in turn upsets me. I am not eating out. I eat simple home made food which generally consists of some vegetables and roti for the lunch while dinner generally contains dal, roti, vegetable and curd. Simple food. And still the stomach has some problem. This specially happens on a weekend, read Sunday when mom generally cooks Kadhi-Rice and vegetable or Rajma.. Is it that my stomach is not used to an elaborative lunch any more. The same continues for a few days before it comes to normal. I have noticed that these days if I eat something out, my stomach cannot digest it, even if it is a simple sandwich.

When my stomach is upset, its in a real bad shape. I just cannot eat anything. Its empty all the time. I am so scared of eating anything. I am living on the lightest of food one can think of - plain curd and rice, thats it. Not even any vegetable. No milk in the morning.

I wonder why do I have such a sensitive stomach. I cannot eat chillies, garam masala or oily stuff, no tea or hot coffee. These days I am not able to digest cold coffee as well. If the food is even a bit stale, my stomach goes for a toss. I carry water from home. So many times I crave to eat the street food but I know I cannot. I cant take chances with my digestive system. Its no fun being sick like this all the time... I am hungry but I cant eat anything!!! How I am jealous of those people who can eat anything and everything without any worry....

My Love...

I want to let you know on this day
how much I am thankful
to you for being there for me
When I am feeling low
When I need the support
When I should be loved
Your love is unconditional
You expect nothing in return
Your love is selfless
You understand me
You make me understand
You show me the way
You encourage me
You shake me out of damp spirits
You lift me out of the deepest pits
I know I can fall back on you
anytime anywhere
You dont judge me
You accept me the way I am
You dont find imperfections in me
It does not matter to you
whether I am thin or fat
fair or dark
plain jane or sexy lass
You read my mind
You know when I need to be alone
You know when I want to talk to you..
You are the best.

I am so thankful to you for being in my life...

This is for the love of my life i.e. my soulmate - Myself on this Valentine's Day... And I also bought a very smart pair of sunglasses for myself on this Valentine's Day.. :-))

Surajkund Crafts Mela

On Sunday, I went to Surajkund Mela finally... Every year the visit to this mela was cancelled for reasons that I dont remember. But still no regrets. The wait was worth it. The mela is full of energy and vibrant colors all around. Its the place to be for the photographers. Its laid on an open ground which is a huge one and stalls are put from all over India. Every year one state represents the mela which is theme is as well. This year Madhya Pradesh was the theme of the mela.

The moment you enter, you want to run in all the directions and find out about the fair.
Each and every stalls vies for your attention. Beautifully laid out stalls exhibiting their speciality - clothes, junk jewellery, handicrafts, furniture, shawls, upholstery, linen, lamp shades, show pieces, food - you name it and you get it there.

A wide variety of food stalls were put up. But my eyes were on the Egypt Stall. Considering that I love eating and trying different cuisines, I headed to that stall. The best part was that stall had only vegetarian food much to my surprise. There were different dishes available but I settled for Falafel and Shwarma roll. First bite and it was absolute yum!!!

The crowd is endless, the shopping has no limit, the food has a wide variety, riot of colors, the energy is forever bustling - it is a must visit place... I did quite a lot of shopping as opposed to what I had initially thought and I am happy with that. Now I shall try to go there every year till the time I am here..

Right to Infidelity?

What gives a person the right to infidelity or does the person ever have the right to have that right? I have talked about it before as well. One may have problems in marriage, may be it is to the extent that you dont want to continue with it anymore. But is that the reason good enough that you resort to infidelity. Every marriage has problems and yes, sometimes its to the extent that you want to walk out of it. Fine, agreed.. Walk out of it and then start afresh.

But cheating on your partner while you are still in the relationship - is it justifiable? While I do not have anything against getting separated or divorce, but its hard for me to comprehend the reason for unfaithfulness. If the marriage is already on the rocks and you two, cannot stay together, why not move out or sort it out in a decent way. If you have a problem with your spouse, does that mean you will go out and cheat on him/her.

Though I do not want to bring the gender bias here, but I am writing this since I am observing this about a couple wherein the man is cheating on his wife, on the pretext that they both do not have any relationship and he needs some peace of mind. My first reaction to the man was: "Will you like it if your wife does the same thing to you?" He was silent for sometime and then replied, "No, I will not like it." So why is he doing it? Just because he is a man does not give him the right to cheat on his wife.

The marriage has a whole lot of problems which they feel cannot be sorted out. Yes, you do crave for companionship, a hearing ear... So go and talk to a marriage counselor or consult a lawyer if the need be.. Talk to a friend, but infidelity!!! Problems in marriage are justifiable and acceptable but does that also gives you the right to cheat on your spouse??
