Zini, me & life in general

About

Hi, my Name is Pankti. I am a former techie, currently a homemaker, taking care of my daughter Zini & her papa A (well that’s my hubby :)). & as a homemaker I am supposed to take care of my home as well, but let’s not talk about it ;).

I love to read happy stuff, like to watch happy movies, enjoy listening to happy songs.. so you get it, i am a sucker for happy  endings. you can find me laughing while reading a book ( i have received many concerned, many is-she-mad looks for this)

I love reading P G Wodehouse books for all the chaos in there & finally the happy endings. Chicken soup for the soul series is also a favorite…I also like Tarak Mehta na ulta Chashma for the brilliant humour…

And of course, the list is not complete without Harry Potter series…I am in love with those books. I can have re-run after re-run after re-run…of these books. (When i got the HP7, i didn’t cook, didn’t sleep & decided to travel to the office by auto rickshaw so that i can read it on the way to the office).

I enjoyed some of the Chetan Bhagat’s book, esp. 5 point someone (being an engineering student i had this deja vu moment with it) & 2 states (being a Gujarati married to a punjabi, this again had this deja vu effect)

There is one exception to my happy book list- “The Diary of a young girl”, i read it as a teenager & liked it though the ending was not happy. it made me realize that how lucky i am to have my freedom & a comfortable life…

I liked Dil Chahta Hai, 3 Idiots & HeraPheri..i also enjoyed 50 first dates, home alone, charlie’s angels, chronicles of narnia (read the books after watching the movie :)), and of course all the Harry Potter movies (Surprisingly can’t think of many movies that i would like to watch again (probably it’s the Zini effect :))

Currently i am found singing nursery rhymes, Baal Geet & Haalarda(Lori).. and to my surprise i realized that i like many of them :), i like all the songs that Zini & i can dance on…

I am also a bit of adventurer, i have tried para sailing  ( the best was at Goa, it was great flying above the sea – sadly the way i did it for the 1st time is not the way it is done now. In our last visit to Goa para-sailing was a big let down), river rafting (best was on Ganga near Hrishikesh, waiting for another chance – Sadly this too has been discontinued now due to a recent accident). Also took a road journey to Leh via Manali…And yes, if riding a scooty in which fuel is about to run out & then getting it pushed by an auto walla, or a passing biker, or loading it in a cycle rickshaw to reach nearest patrol pump is considered adventurous then that also ;)……

Oh, and I blog about my cooking adventures at My Cooking Adventures….
