Just 4 Fun # 48

A new week begins, July ends and August begins and things are beginning to look very tight indeed


There’s no denying it – I am growing rounder and rounder…

MatkaI think I better shape up soon 😉


He does have a point doesnt he? besides what does the teacher know?



😀 😀 There’s no denying that!


I thought this model was really cool 😀



That’s the spirit! 😉 😀


Talking of wives


Tell me honestly do wives really talk so much? More importantly do husbands actually not hang up?


Umm – err cough cough moving on


Yes that is how expensive tomatoes are! 😀

Hope you found something that you enjoyed – none of which are mine by the way. I received all of them as forwards/shares and am just keeping the fun going.

Have a super week and don’t forget to have some fun as well 🙂

And do let me know your favorite – or better still post your own and leave me a link I will be along in just a bit.

WPC: Gratified and Delighted

Those of you who are regular visitors to my blog would know that I am rather partial to trees and that is putting it mildly 😀 My obsession is common knowledge among friends and family so whenever and wherever they go they never forget to share photos of trees. I feel blessed, overwhelmed and more than satisfied at their warm gesture and for taking time out in the midst of their work and pleasure trips. Here I share some photos from my collection of enchanting trees from near and far.

I hope you too will like them 🙂


My friends sneaked off to the hills without telling me 😦 But then came the photos – what were you thinking BS? Tall and slim like these trees? In our next lives for sure 😉


We are more like this one – grounded and juggling a lot of pies 😉 😀 Cheers


Now for some trees from Sri Lanka – thanks Ruma 🙂 Coconut shells form a decorative earthen pot for the plant. But later it is completely absorbed into the earth.


Then there’s this unruly wild child of the forest


The tree turns into a convenient display spot for attractive and fascinating masks

IMG-20170425-WA0011How could I forget these majestic beauties from Darjeeling and the unique angle – thank you Jyotsna 🙂

ChristmasALet’s move on a bit farther to Germany. My cousin sent these stunning trees. Have a look


A veritable feast for the eyes


I just love this photo – don’t you?


Time for a change!


My cousin found this mottled beauty along the road. Doesn’t it look as if she is leaning back on a push swing and any moment she is going to take off?

SnowSBlue blue skies and snow clad trees also from Germany shared by Svkuki 🙂

MassivePThere’s this massive one from Dublin snapped by my sister while on an educational trip there.

HairyPA hairy one and quite unapologetic too!

TwoPIs that two trees or one? Oh what does it matter – there’s just one like you, muaahh

Have a super week ahead 🙂

WPC: True Blue

Yippee – after 9 months, Delhi finally delivered 😉

A good air day in the first week of July! Not very great, just about satisfactory, which will do for now because along with it came blue skies and big white clouds. It has been ages since I have seen a blue blue sky in Delhi and I have been walking with my head in the clouds ever since 😀

I thought pictures of a smog free Delhi sky would be just perfect for the Weekly Photo Challenge – Unusual.

Hope you like!

BlueGreen, white and blue – a sight for sore eyes don’t you think?

Sky copyRain is imminent – the clouds gear grey up 😉

IMG-20170721-WA0012They came in other designs too!

Sunny sideJust the way I like it – sunny side up 😀

20170724_174700Quite perfectly framed – what do you say?

EveSnapped a quick pic on the way home – on the left

Duskand on the right. I got a crick in my neck gawking at the sky. And a good thing too for I caught someone staring at me…

MonkeyAny guesses who that is? 😀

Thanks for visiting, have a super week ahead 🙂


Just 4 Fun # 47 B

Hello! What’s up people? Can you hear me? It’s pouring cats and dogs and I can barely hear myself think over din. Anyway talking of cats…

Baby cat😀 😀 Mama cat does have a point 😉

SpidermanAnd if you are smart, you’ll take a hint from Spiderman’s predicament. Better to spend ones time more productively like this artist

3d painting

Who created a 3-D painting – amazing isn’t it? Moving on…

Q algo

So, did you ask your question? 😉

CutePerhaps I have shared this before but one with which I thoroughly concur 😉 Besides there are bigger problems and woes especially for us living in Delhi…


😀 tomato prices have sky rocketed! What’s the price like at your place?

But I saved my favorite for the last – one that effectively depicts the great Indian jugaad. 😀


For every problem, there is a solution 😀

Hope you found something that you enjoyed – none of which are mine by the way. I received all of them as forwards/shares and am just keeping the fun going.

Have a super week and don’t forget to have some fun as well 🙂

And do let me know your favorite – or better still post your own and leave me a link I will be along in just a bit.

The Sneaky Ways of Fate

The Sneaky Ways of Fate

Words 102

The train chugged out of the station. He tried to the quell butterflies in his stomach, an alien city, an unfamiliar language. Jobless in Kolkata, fate had offered him a job in Delhi he had grabbed it.

In another part of the country, hectic preparations were on to send her to college.

Tonight, they would take the train to Agra.

Fate blinked. Oops! Her destiny was in Delhi.

“A telegram,” father said, “confirming admission in a Delhi college.”

Fate sighed. Her job was done.

Same city.

Same campus.

Time would lead them to Room 4027.

Biology and chemistry would do the rest.

“That house looks eerie.” I said.

“It is haunted.” The villager touched his ears and backed away.

“Really? What happened?” I was intrigued.

“All because of one woman. Curse them all.” He spat.

“Tell me in detail Chachaji.” I offered him a cigarette. He settled himself comfortably on his haunches. He took a deep drag. “Two brothers lived here, Suresh and Ramesh. When Suresh was about 10 years old, they lost their parents. Suresh cared for Ramesh like a son. He refused to get married for fear that his wife may not accept Ramesh. They were model exemplary brothers.”

“Then?” I asked.

“Like any responsible father, Suresh arranged Ramesh’s marriage. Everything was perfect until she was caught.”


“Caught seducing Suresh.”


“She was of course killed on the spot.”

“And Suresh?”

“Suresh’s blameless! His reputation spotless, character impeccable.”

“Why did they leave?”

“The brothers fell out. Accidents happened.” He lowered his voice. “Her ghost forced them to leave.”


“Denied entry to even hell, she haunts that house.”

“Suresh may…?”

“She should’ve handled him better. Men are like little children. She has the power to manipulate and incite them. Mark my words, women are at the root of all evil.”

COB: Some Cute Stuff

Hola friends, it’s been a while since I participated in Cee’s Oddball Photo Challenge but worry not, I have been hard at work all this while 😉

Hope you like them as much as I do.

CockCock-a-doodle-do! Now that you are wide awake, let’s see what else is in my kitty.

Carpet catA designer rug – err oops a designer kitty 😀

Cats on wallThese two were having an important family discussion about their daughter’s upcoming wedding arrangements when my friend Svkuki Rekha (apologies to both – I plead old age) snapped them.

GoldenMoving on to bigger things, a huge bronze statue of Lord Shiva’s Nandi the Bull in eternal repose. I am not quite sure about the other one but it appears to have Greek overtones. What do you think?

OwlSuch a cute owl – loved the toes and the bow. Lovely color combination too! What say you?

DollThat’s me signing off for the day 😛

So which one is your favorite?

Do let me know – thanks for visiting and have a super day 🙂

Just 4 Fun # 47

It’s Monday again and which face are you wearing – Monday face or Saturday face 😉


Frankly it makes me quite dizzy to get to Saturday! And the bald head reminds me of this one:


They don’t seem to be too happy about the whole number business. Clearly not their idea – so whose brainchild was it?


Did you hear about the day Mr Right had enough? No? Scroll down to find out 😉



After that profound thought a little reality check:
