Tourist Trap – June 3rd 2013

Daily Prompt: Tourist Trap

What’s your dream tourist destination — either a place you’ve been and loved, or a place you’d love to visit? What about it speaks to you?
Photographers, artists, poets: show us VACATION.

Being a piscean Ive always been a water baby. Some might find it strange but i learnt how to swim on my own, maybe by observing…as a kid I would love to play with water! So it would be stating the obvious that my favourite tourist destination is Maldives :’)


The different shades of blue that are visible to our eyes would prove to be a shocker to Miranda Priestly herself! Haha no really! Its incredible what colors the sky can burst into…pink, purple, lavender…yes even the skies there are specially made for me!
What Maldives also does is bring out various emotions in you which you never felt were even there in the first place…Its feeling butterflies in your stomach on a whole new level altogether!
From the feeling of serenity when the white sand merges into the crystal blue water…to the emptiness in you stomach as The Jaws Theme Track plays in your head when you look down at the sea bed and see absolutely nothing but darkness…sure you’re there swimming with the biggest shark in the world who is a vegetarian but what if he felt like feasting on variety? and what if he has non vegetarian friends just around the corner…I mean coral 😛
I love how Maldives brought out the photographer in me, it helped me face my fears, it helped motivate me to lose weight so that i could sit their next time bikini clad just watching as the waves wash the shore away leaving me memories that I would cherish forever and little sparkling shells as a memento for such a brilliant holiday! ❤


A letter to my 30 year old self :)

This was a brilliant concept to be published in our Yearbook…but hey who needs the Yearbook if we can spend all our money booking the auditorium for an air conditioned – unplanned – Farewell 🙂 Anyway why let the humour and sentiments go to waste…

I know it’s been a hard day…the client and the copywriter are on your hit list and you were throwing darts on their picture before your eye caught this, but hey! it cant be worse than not having a weekend in college! Its worse??? Ooooh that bad huh? Well now you’re only ticket to fame would be if Raunak remembered to mention you as ‘Gal Pal’ in his latest interview which oh by the way was on air sometime back when you were stuck in traffic counting the number of cars ahead of you in line -.-

Oh but don’t worry… Life has its plans all laid out for you kid! You will soon have your own advertising agency someday where maybe your grandchildren could intern (yeah its going to take that long) or you could jointly start one with Jeel (your copy-writer), Foram (anything under the sun-er) & Akriti (Servicing)…remember them? And the rest of them? Ooooh remember Panchgani? ❤ remember the farewell? The last ad party at WTF! Blur memories yet happy ones. So while you sit there smiling and reminiscing lets be thankful for an amazing college life, amazing friends, and the fact that ab tak sabka placement hogaya 🙂

Here’s to an amazing 3 years of my life that I would curse each day but now find it difficult to remember why 🙂
