Venus Women

Mom – Coz she can put up with all of us and actually makes it look like fun! But seriously, I don’t think I can take anyone so for granted as Ma. She’s the only person I have such a love-hate relationship with. And yes, I have never met a younger person at heart!

Ruks – At the risk of sounding clichéd, she’s truly my soul mate. It’s not funny how life treats us exactly the same way! It’s sometimes crazy to have someone who feels just like you do. If I call her to talk about something that’s bothering me, chances are she’ll know it anyway! But wait; there are times I can’t stand her! That’s when her eyes gleam with that “Let’s Shop!” look. The lazy me simply dreads it! And also when she wants to travel 300miles back and forth to have that particular seafood!! Sorry Ruks, for all those times I have lied to you about shut seafood restaurants ;) But I must confess, I haven’t had a better Hot Chocolate Fudge since our times together!

Smiths – Watch out for this one people! With the cutest looks ever, IPS and Kiran Bedi is all what she dreams are made of. It’s rare to find a breed which even comes closer to Smiths’ mettle. Diligent and persistent like a mule and the funniest funniest bone in my body, Smiths is everyone’s sweetheart. With a brilliant taste in papajis herself (shoot me!) she is the only one who has truly liked ALL the men I have dated! :) And yes…She will be my ALL-TIME pick for a dancing partner – how she can crack up the dance floor! And besides, I know she’s always on my side - whatever life may dice across the table.

Prisi – I really don’t know what we share but Prisi is always in my thoughts no matter what. She is thoroughbred philanthropist who can practically give away anything, no kidding! One of the hottest and prettiest women out there, she is a storyteller’s dream, spinning stories after stories with an ease that’s enrapturing. I must say Mayo and Rajasthan would never have been the same without Baisa tales! I am so glad she’s followed her heart through all the adversities to pursue her first love – Wildlife. In a nutshell, she’s a tough cookie and one of my dearest friends!

Rashmi – Rashu and I have had seen some great times – by that I mean, really great times. You know, like measuring the height of a sapling in a pitch-dark rainy night with an umbrella!!! Gross! But what the heck, we did have loads of fun. All I can say I won’t have been a graduate without Ms. Bhatt. The only other “non-scinecee” on the block. And as fate would have it, Rashu ALWAYS ends up treating me and ALWAYS ends up cribbing about that! And she also always gives me a lot of clothes :) Honestly, She's taken care of me like her own child. And before I forget, she’s got REALLY pretty big eyes, which I am SO jealous of!

Kanika! – I couldn’t have mentioned her name without exclaiming. Niks is just too much spunk for anyone! Truly a woman with oodles of oomph! Niks’ world is one straight road. She is just in your face – love it or hate it. Yet, I know the softie inside – she’s one protective figure in my life and will always remain so.

Divs – This babe I surely have some past-life connection with. We clicked the moment we set our eyes upon each other. MBA classes were a ball with her. Delhi winters and Agrawal sweets – both remind me of her. Divya is someone I never have to make efforts to reach out to. She’s always there somewhere – lurking in my thoughts and beyond.

Sherry – How do I put it? My polar opposite? Serry's a cat - cool, absolulety cool. Princessly and how! Very righteous. Very opinionated. Very particular. Very loyal. Very stylish. VERY GIVING. She's there for everyone by default. Little things matter for Sharon than big ones. I love bugging her :)
Ruchi – Okay, this is a really cool 'mathematics' chic. When I would so struggle with those numbers running across my face, Ruch would be like SO COOL at all that Math and Physics nonsense that ( now obvious) din't make any sense to me! Our friendship goes back to school. Her belief in me has given me strenth in my lowest moments. Thanks babes!

Prachi – My first boss. I owe most of my work ethics to her. One hell of a manager, working for Prachi will always be such a pleasure. I know she hated my laziness but I guess Garfield is up and about now. Thanks Prachi for everything that I have learnt from you :)

Aditi’s Mom – Coz she taught me how to accept a gift with the grace that can make someone’s day!Apart from these there are SO MANY more names. Gudi, Durga, Nammu, Sona, Lati, Chittoo, Maha, Sammy, Purva - Hah!
I want to write about so many of them who are so dear to me! I wish I had more time and patience (and space here!).

Khool Cats!


Suds – My brother. That's enough introduction! Okay ..Okay... how do I put it? He is me. That's it.

Shiv – How can I even begin! :)

Simon – My prof in MICA, Simon was a LIVING STORM. Mad Mad Mad. He is no more and I will curse myself for the rest of my life for not listening to my inner voice, which repeatedly told me to go see him :( I will always be sorry. But I must say I loved him dearly and I wish he was a happier man.

Dates – Conversations with Dates can be virtually endless - Music, Stories, Design, Cats, Dogs, Poe, Shopping, Bitching, Porn...Phew! He's a woman's man!A blue-blooded whakoid. One guy who has the coolest collection of posters and T-shirts and whose style quotient just SO matches mine. Let's say we make a kickass team! P.S. - He's also my chocolate binging buddy!

Amod – My first love and a darling of a friend :) My heart just goes out to him. I always will want him to do well in life. The only person who can take me for granted and is still so adorable to me!

Anand – He is the peace and calm that people seldom manage to experience in their lives. Anand is always happy, always wears a smile on his face. It’s nice to have someone whose name, when blinks on your phone, is enough to bring a smile all over.

Viks – Hmm... I know he truly loves me. He's one guys who's been at the receiving end of all my tantrums and mood swings :) And yet I know that he's always going to be around for me even if I do it for next 200 years to him. He is also the 'official' madman of every party worth its weight in salt! So please, wear your protective gears.

Satyajit – I think he likes me coz i always call him by his full name and not Satz like almost everyone! :D I started out as HATING him but he's been a steady presence in my life. He calls himself an anarchist but he's a friend I know I can count on. P.S. he's got the lovelist handwriting. I'm jealous!

Ritesh – I met him in probably what was worst time of my life until now. What I received from him was so much of compassion and warmth. Effortlessly. One of the highest-ranking men in my diary of cute quotient. No wonder I had a tini-wini crush on him. He exudes so much warth. It's not possible to not get affected. Love you:)


Ron – Haven’t met him but I am sure he wears a white robe and has a halo around his head! As if putting up with my dear friend wasn’t enough, he’s now marrying her! But seriuosly Ron you make her so happy! God Bless you.
