It was supposed to be a one off date and I wasn’t interested until SUSAN coaxed me into giving it a shot. I had seen many like her before and the spark usually fizzles out after the initial joyride. But I decided to take the risk for I had nothing to lose. Perhaps she was THE ONE.

I am glad I took the plunge and what an exciting journey it had been so far. We had nothing in common or so I thought until I met the whole CBC Clan.  I never expected the whole family to be so warm and friendly. The best though is the varied emotions at different points of the day. You never knew how she was going to react. She surprised me day in and day out. It was supposed to be a clumsy one off date but CBC has given me 50 FIRST DATES.

The CBC Family is a lovely ensemble with a lovely assortment of characters – the perfect star cast with a lovely lead- the baton had been passed on but the spirit remains the same.

Dear CBC we are meant to be so never have second thoughts about our relationship. Cheers to many more years of togetherness.  Hearty Christmas and New Year wishes to the entire CBC clan.  

A big fat thank you for being the most wonderful part of my life in 2015.

Yours Truly,

With love.





PRIYA – The love of my life. I still remember my very first glimpse of her.  It was supposed to be an ordinary day at work. I was fretting over another argument with my boss as my mind voice mumbled “Oh no not again” and there she was like a freshly bloomed rose. Life was never the same again.

She was my trainee. Every single day was filled with moments to cherish. I never knew even anger could be so beautiful. She was quick learner too which was a relief. I had someone whom I could rely on, someone who could share my office responsibilities. 

Time flew and our relationship wasn’t just about work.  We shared common interests and I realized Priya was a mirror image of my own self.  The whole workplace could sense it. There were cold stares. I am not sure why? Is it such a grave mistake to fall in love? We didn’t care about the world around us. The only thing that mattered to me was that I loved her.

It was time to speak my heart out and I decided to do it with a gift which matched her surreal beauty. I had come across Stylori during one of my random web visits.  A brand which personified elegance. I frantically search through their entire collection and what a wonderful assortment it was. Picking one among many is a tough task. 

My hovering eyes finally settled on one item – THE HOLY TRINITY – A union. Nothing could be more apt than the HOLY TRINITY to signify a union.




The big day arrives and I wait for my precious with this precious gift. The doorbell rings. My angel in my own abode. I don’t give her a chance to settle down.  She opens the door and I am down on my knees. She senses it.

“I Love you Priya. Will you marry me?” Her eyes become moist as she responds “I LOVE YOU TOO SUJITHA”
