I was asleep quite soundly when I jerked and woke up. I tried to look for a reason around for disturbing my sleep I coundt see any .I see my sister in a deep slumber beside me. My tests are around the corner and I normally wake up early to read around 3 am too early to read but thats when I find the world around peaceful without any disturbances. Its still 2.30 am I still have another half hour of sleep to go before I start my studying. But something is wrong. I can sense something is happening but couldn’t put my finger on it. I feel air pinching on my neck.
My room has one window which faces towards the street. There are lots of trees around the house which is the view when you look through the window. I always felt it quite pleasing to have trees near window now it feels creepy somehow. I just coudnt fall asleep and with lots of cold air zooming through the window I decided to close it. As i went near the window I see a faint flow in my opposite house. Its next to my opposite house and I could see something or someone there. But at this time of the day it usually is nothing. But I see a glow of light not the ones which come from any bulbs. What might cause this at this time. I coudnt see properly because of the trees.
I walk through the living room to the porch so that I can have a good look of what really is happening. I clung to the iron bars and see a women in white carrying a thali(plate) of prayer items and going around a thulasi tree. I remember seeing that women. She is the mother of the lady who lives there. But why is she praying at this time of the day. I started starting seriously to believe myself if whats going on is true or not. She stared at me suddenly. I saw her wearing a very big red bindi . I decided it might be true and came back to my room and started reading for my exam.
Next day as I returned home I noticed a commotion in their house and lots of people thronging it. My mom was talking with our neighbour about something very seriously and all seem to be in a sad mood. I asked my mom what was happening and then what she told shocked me. The lady’s mom died at night . I told her i saw her early in the morning doing pooja wearing a white sari. my mom dint believe me at first then she did later, but told me the lady died early morning in sleep around 3 .
Did i just watch the lady before she died or watched her spirit before she left the place.
Its been around 10 years since this incident happened and I still argue if its true I saw it or my mind playing tricks. After this incident anything similar happening I know for sure whats coming for me.Note : This is my real life experience when I was around 15 years.

After I watched Titanic I always wanted to go on a big ship. In a way my dream came true. Went on a cruise and fulfilled my childhood dream. It was a joy weekend, and the cruise was fun. I would suggest everyone to go on one.
For those planning we went through starcruises on Superstar Virgo. Had good time roaming ,playing, eating and watching all the shows on board.
The balcony view room is worth additional money as we can just hang out there at any time.
There were good pools and jacuzzi on board with good gym,library,casino,video arcade,karaoke,Table tennis,basketball court,jogging track,mahjjong room, spa ,massage center.
For a peaceful vacation away from all the hustle and bustle of the everyday world its great. We opted not to take wifi. Better to be away from phone calls and the social media and take a rest.

Im an avid reader and make sure no time is wasted. These days Ive been buying few hard copy books and reading more ebooks. One reason being not able to find what I want in the stores , other being keeping my books shopping in a budget.
I hate ebooks coz i just want to read whichever position is convenient for me. And reading in a laptop surely isnt as easy. Now im reading all books in ipad and it sure gives me a feel of reading a hardbook coz of its size sans the pleasant new book smell.
My friend made my day yesterday by giving me all the epub files she has and I have been high since I saw all those books in my i shelf..
Started one already and planning to finish all of them as soon as possible..
Books ive got..
- Beautiful creatures series : 4 books
- Divergent : 2 books
- Matched : 3 books
- Maze runner : 3 books
- Mortal instruments : 5 books
- Silver linings playbook
- Warm bodies
- The great gatsby
- the fault in our stars
- world war Z
- Gone girl
- Hunger games : 3 books
If you guys have read any of them a review would be great.. If you have more recommendations .. Im all welcome..

Secret Circle is not any new novel series that came up. Its been a decade since its release. I only heard of it through the TV serial of the same name. I like supernatural genre books having more than 30 books in my shelf. When I got chance to read them I could not help myself. I read through 4 parts Initiation,Captive,Power and Divide in a week with my busy schedule practically irritating others by not talking at all during my read.
My review for all 4 books

Ive been to Candylicious yesterday . Though Ive been there many times it still amazes me seeing all those chocolates and makes me extremely happy.
Im a complete chocolate person and I felt like Charlie in Charlie and the Chocolate factory.
A quote from there “If there is no Chocolate in heaven Im not interested in going there”
Here are few snaps taken.

Does this sound offensive. May be it does.Asking other persons salary directly is little offensive and the other person dosent know how to politely decline giving answer.Though there are people who outright blast asking why they need their salary details.
Let me give an intro why this idea came to me. I just got into a bus from office and saw an indian seating beside me.All my patriotism clicked inside me and I smiled her and said a simple Hi. Now that dint sound that bad. She caught the bus in the same stop and must be living near my house so though could make some friends. She started a conversation and after 2 mins we were chatting along. She told me where she works,where her husband works ,where they stay ,when she got married ,how she got into this job after a long time searching for one and stuff.I was patiently listening to her.
Then started asking me questions..
“Where do you work”
“I work in xxx”
“Whats your salary?” Now it was time for me to get shocked. She was a sweet girl and we had pleasant conversation.But how do I say no to her in a polite way.
“I do get okay”. Thats the best I could give. Then the conversation moved on and we talked about other stuff and the topic of job market came and she asked me again the same question.When I dint answer she asked me if I get more than xx amount. I dint know what to answer so I told her I have good years of exp .She being a fresher might have speculated or understood whatever dint ask the question again.
There is a saying that you should never ask a womens age and mens wage. Now the generation has changed “dont ask anyone their age or wage “.
I dont know if any of you has faced the same scenarios but I still dont give a confident answer( I mean a no) when someone asks my salary.May be I should learn to say no.

That would be the ultimate fantasy of many. Fitting into your old jeans. Almost everyone has that pair of jeans which looked great on you and you have outgrown them. They are still in the closet as a trophy waiting for that day when you wear it again. More than men women are so eager to fit into their old jeans.
There would an area in your closet with clothes your old self wore and they are still great but just cant wear them anymore. You would even forget something like that exist after many days and months. But the day of closet cleaning they come out laughing at you and teasing you being fat. No one can stop themselves trying out them especially jeans to see if they have reduced at all. The excitement you get when you really fit into an old pair is beyond words. Immediately all the excitement has to be shared.
The old pair of jeans can also lead to depression. Sounds silly but its true. Every time its tried on and dosent fit , some people finally give up reducing and start eating more coz they feel they are fat either way . few peoples mind plays its trick and they become emotionally weak. But the best thing to do is to strive more and take that as a goal and try to reach the goal no matter what.
This old jeans is a remainder of how you were before , the old you . The jeans you wore to college reminds you of all the college fun you had and scribbling you did on it. Its good to keep at least one old pair in your closet to remind you of your past. If your old jeans are way too big for you ,the effort you put in achieving this can be remembered and if small then what efforts you need to put to return back can be thought.
So much just an old pair of jeans can do to a person.
