Baby, Bean Bag and DCH

Last week, I graduated into the uncle Club. Not that I wasn’t being referred to as one before last week, but now its official .. I am now a proud uncle. My little new-born niece is the cutest thing I have ever rested my eyes upon. You can keep looking at her for hours and not get bored at all. Too bad I didn’t take my camera with me the two times that I visited her. But I will make sure I click some pics the next time.
The feeling of being called an uncle, somehow doesn’t sound too odd now. Is that a sign that I am finally growing up ?? Becoming more mature and all that crap ?? Well .. it doesnโ€™t matter .. thatโ€™s what I like think about it . ๐Ÿ˜€
Anyway, on a different note, being the favorite uncle (actually, the only uncle who is around right now ๐Ÿ™‚ ) I have been given the responsibility of coming up with a name for the baby. Apparently my suggestion will be given thought to .. and just might be accepted, because my uncle-aunt and sister-jiju think that being the only one around with 8 hour internet connection , I can think of a much better name than most. I have given my mind sufficient exercise in this regard. They want a name that is unconventional, but not too difficult to pronounce or spell. Preferably with ‘S’ .. they say. My mind is not so imaginative when it comes to such things, the most I have been able to come up with is Shruti and Sakshi. Any other suggestions .. please ?? I desperately want to be the one to suggest the suggested name to them :D. And yes, the name should mean something .. that is a important requisite.
Coming up -> A picture of the baby.

Yesterday, I added a bean bag to the barren house of ours. Its a black XXL size comfort seat. Its fairly pleasant to sit on, and I have been going overboard ( I think ) with the uses I am putting it to. Last night, I first used it as a place to rest my ass, then my back, while I sat on the mattress in front of it, and then later a place to keep my legs on while I lay on the mattress. Later on, I used it as a place to keep my food and then, finally, as a place to keep my pillow, while I rested my head on it and fell asleep. Wonderful invention it is. And come to think of it, I didn’t have to pay much for it and there was no delivery charge. Exactly the kind of deal I like ๐Ÿ™‚

Yesterday, one of the reasons for coming home early, was .. I wanted to watch DCH, for the zillionth time .. but with a difference. This time, I was sitting on the bean bag while watching it. Just made me wonder, Does life get ANY BETTER than this ? Why did I watch it again .. uhmm .. well Let me just say that lately I have been looking at things from a critics’ perspective .. and the age old axiom – “distance brings perspective” – holding true .. I had the utmost right to criticize anything I am distant from :). Problem is, even after such a long time since the movie release, I still fall in love with it every time I see it. I gave up trying to analyze people’s character about half way through the movie and gave in to the utter pleasure of watching the awesome threesome of Saif, Aamir and Akshay , not to mention the ever-so-cute Preity :). The movie has something for everyone .. All of us can so easily associate ourselves with the characters, the every-girl-my-girlfriend Saif, the funny-practical Aamir and the melancholic quiet Akshay. No matter, whom do we associate ourselves with the most, you just canโ€™t not notice a shade of yourself in the others too.
The ending is just a masterpiece, so is the movie. ๐Ÿ™‚ Wish there was a DCH part 2 ๐Ÿ™‚ .. Why not .. If there can be Dhoom 2 and what not crap .. DCH 2 will still be better than most ๐Ÿ™‚

    I can’t wait to see your cute, adorable niece.. plz post pics soon! And yea.. bean bags are awesome especially when ur feeling lazy.. i have 2 of them.. so i usually sit on one and rest my feet on the other… That feels like heaven :)…. Couldn’t catch DCH this time coz had to attend a wedding.. Anyway, i can always watch it on DVD at home … one of the all-time coolest movies… Wish they’d make a 2nd part!!

  2. Shirsha

    Hey, someone did do a defend after all my prosecuting! Aah, well! So, now that yo ur ok with ppl calling u uncleji, can I also… I mean call u uncleji? I can baby-talk, promise!
    “Unkelji aap mujko choclet kharidke denge na?” Ala, I can’t quite put the accent into that one…
    Bean bag, tell me do u ahve this funny feeling of spilling out when u settle int oone? I do, and after that I can’t quite rest on it peacefully.
    U know its funny when u say that everyone might find somebody to relate to in dch, but practically everyone I know wants to relate to Aamir khan’s character. Poor Saif and Akshay, nobody quite prefers them… hmm!

    and yes .. bean bags do make one feel VERY lazy .. i fell asleep on it ๐Ÿ™‚

    @Shirsha ,
    No no .. no .. NO .. you are not calling me that .. ๐Ÿ˜›
    and bean bags are good .. i didnt spill out or anything ๐Ÿ™‚
    well , its not about whom you want to be associated with, its about whom you really know you are .. Aamir was the funniest, but all of us have streaks of Akshay and Saif …

    then, ‘Sugandha’ agar yeh bhi nahi..
    to, ‘Sreya’…

    Not more coming into my life…

    Anyways, do tell us what name has been choosen for her..

    Take care…

  22. @ curryegg ,

    Thanks ๐Ÿ™‚ .. Now I can proudly say I have grown up .. there are others who don’t like being called aunty-uncle .. ๐Ÿ™‚ .. I definitely have grown up .. I guess ๐Ÿ™‚

    @ Shruti ,

    Thanks for the suggestions .. i suggested Shruti as that was the first unconventional name that came to my mind .. but it seems they are going with Samaira.

    @Everyone ,
    Thanks for the help .. Samaira seems to be final decision ๐Ÿ™‚

  23. I wonder what I was doing … while you were writing all these posts !!!

    Bean bag sounds fun… will look for some of them next month… but the lazeeBoy thing is really cool.. isn’t it the same that they showed in FRIENDS !!!

    waise we too have added couple of necessities in our flat … a new bed and a refrigerator… so next time when you are coming from bangy … get us some beer canes….

    aur haan… dch ki yaad mat dila.. the saying which goes for wines… suits aptly for DCH as well.. kambakht jitne saal bit te hain .. DCH aur achchi lagti jati hai… though i like all of them.. my personal favorite character still is, Sid..

    Aur haan, agar naam abhi tak decide nahi hue hain to … you can consider of “Spriha”… its a very unique name and means desire (if I am not wrong)

  24. congrats buddy..when are you gifting your little neice an aunty ๐Ÿ˜€ hehe .. and why dont you patent all those new uses of Bean bag ๐Ÿ˜€
