Hiya. It has been busy busy. After the B’glore trip I was busy with appraisals preparation. On sat we headed to KC’s friend’s engagement and Sunday was spent relaxing. Appraisal is done and I can now focus on other pending work. Appraisals always throw up surprises… no matter how well prepared I think I am.
Anyway, so this friend’s engagement that we were heading to. I was not sure what to wear… the usual problem. On Friday evening after office I headed to the mall-Biba, Shoppers Stop etc but did not like anything. It was a Marathi engagement which are generally low key unlike Punjabi events which can be quite flamboyant. I decided to head to my most reliable store- Globus.
Shopping for Indian wear is difficult for me since I don’t wear it too often. I was so damn confused… and start picking up anything I vaguely liked. That generally helps. KC was great help too. Finally, I loved 3 churidhar kurtas and wanted to buy them all. But, sanity prevailed and I bought two. I wore the 2nd one to a lunch with the sales head at ‘Punjab Grill’ in Palladium Mall, Phoenix Mills. It was a reward for exceptional sales nos. Good Indian food.
Coming back to the engagement… it was nice seeing the traditions of Marathis. I was also telling KC about Sindhi engagements. It was a rare conversation. Generally, we steer clear of any tradition related stuff.
I am feeling happy right now and want to share the feeling but everyone is busy.
