And she screams "HAIRBANDS!!"...

i love hair accessories...i can never stop buying them.
when i go to a mall i get stuck to the accessories section (my mom finds that annoying!!lol she s more of a cloth hauler)

so when i saw this hairband on sale at "krucarnations" for 115 bucks ONLY!!
i went for it right away :)

it came by govt. postal service so u can imagine the condition. it was broken and torn in 3 places...
ah the tragedy!!!(my heart shattered into million pieces)

i wanted it too badly so didnt have the heart to throw it away .i decided to customise it.
its actually a hair band but i sow the torn areas and made it into a bandana kind.

i love how it turned out
u can get it from KRUCARNATIONS

Reasons to love winter :)

i hate winter...though my hometown is a hill station (Ukhrul,Manipur.North east india) 
and its almost always winter out there.
everyday is like a walk in the cloud. 
and yet the only thing i like about winter are trench coats and boots :p (duhhh!!)

Toni & Guy Straight and Protect (shampoo and conditioner)

My hair has been getting worse lately- dull and coarse.
i hate the water in Bihar(too much iron and other minerals since we mostly get underground water).
i miss home (ie manipur)...the water there makes hair so soft, im nostalgic just thinking about it :(

Toni & Guy is the first professional hair product i've used.
after i had ordered it i tried finding some reviews about it
OMG!!! ter are too many bad reviews.
i felt terrible. i cursed myself that i shouldn't have ordered it at all!!

the correct way to wash your hair...

We have been washing our hair for so long.
But have we ever wondered if we are doing it the right way?
so..."the correct way to wash your hair?" , you must be wondering..."is she kidding?"
well,im not.

i've been washing and conditioning my hair for the past 2 decades and i thought i was pretty good at it.
and that was before i came to bihar!! you see ...i have naturally poker straight hair and no matter how much i abused it (coloring and never combing!!)it never gave up on me. 
but now..no matter how much i care for it it just wont stop falling!!! (omg!!whats going on..m growing bald :p)

so i asked my fren's sister who owns a saloon in mumbai (ZIDO saloon) to give me some tips on use of professional hair products.

The Circle Of Life

The circle of life

Lost a patient for the very first time in my life. An immunocompromised lady in her late 20 s.
I was at the  market whn the call came...i felt devastated, lost and confused...empty even in the midst of the crowded street.

The first thing i wanted to do was to hide ...runaway somewhere where i wont be judged...or blamed ...i can run and hide from the rest of the world but not from myself. And yes , i was blaming myself...i kept thinking i could’ve done more. But when i do come to think of it i don’t know what i  could’ve done.

The next thing i wanted to do was to face the situation and accept the unavoidable.and that s just what i did. Went to the hospital and did what i had to do. I wasn’t really needed there. But i was doing it for myself even if not for anyone. I wanted to feel less guilty.

People tell me :it’ll get easier as time goes by. I wonder how watching people die can ever get easy... it mite get less painful though. But i wil never really be sure.

And then a miracle happened. Today we discharged a 1 and ½ year old girl kid who had tetanus. She s all happy and jolly. No more pain , no more crying. The first time she saw me she wont stop crying. It made me feel bad about myself. I ve been looking after her from the 3rd day of her admission. She always cried. She wouldn’t even let me touch her or put my stetho on her chest. But since 3 days back she smiles when she sees me...even waves “ta-ta”. I think that was the best part of the day . yesterday i gave her my pen and a strepsil. She was scribbling all over her grandmas hand.

her grandfather is a wise man. The day after losing the other patient i was making random conversation with him and i told him how bad im feeling. He told me “there is only so much doctors can do. The rest is God s plan. No matter how much u try if its written in his fate ,it shall be done”. His words comforted me. And i had a peaceful sleep. The first lesson on dying i received from a man of wisdom i wil forever cherish it.

As i left the hospital after writing the discharge slip for the lil girl , i smiled to myself the most content smile iv e ever had , wished her a happy life in my silent prayers and walked back to the hostel with my head held high and yet with humble submission to God...no matter what “God will always be no.1”

And yes, now i believe in the “circle of life”. For every life that is lost , a new cry of birth is heard somewhere else. And the cycle keeps going...i did what i could...nothing is wasted.
