  2. Hey,
    I am a bit extra sensitive too, but i believe I have improved on that over the years.

    have not worn a saree in AGES, really. I have many salwaaar kameezes, but am mostly using the two pairs of jeans I have. And I need more shirts/tops etc to go with them. And I love shopping.
    I wear only flats too, such a hassle finding decent ones.
    I used to get irritated by my maids too, never shouted either. hehehe.
    I too believe in tradition when I see logic. Really. I follow so many due to the same reason really!!

    Loved reading your list Bones.:)


  3. “17. I’m finicky about cleanliness especially kitchens and bathrooms “

    Me too. No one can ever find my home messy.

    You are first Bengali I know who hates Sondesh.


  4. IHM:
    I’m a Cancerian…

    My mother says I’m a pseudo-Bengali because I don’t like sweets and fish…She can gobble down 1/2 kg of sandesh in one go…


  5. Hello Mam, found your blog tagged in some other post… much in common except for 1, 8, 12, 13 n 20. Love your writings and the way you drive the point home with a hammer (sarcasm) while being objective… but feels weird commenting after 2-3 years…
