Nine Yards of Fantacy


A blog friend from Bangalore, Ramya asked me to write a guest post for her blog ‘Chittrana ‘ (http://ramya-chitrana.blogspot.in/)  last week . I wrote one which lead to a protest that it is too serious and I should write something perkier, a characteristic of her blog! Unfazed, I got back to business and wrote another one after seeing one of her picture on the Facebook draped in a saree! The dame luck smiled and thus this post saw the light of the day. Ramya is a young married Software professional that works as a Test Lead for a US MNC in Bangalore .She has diverse interests ranging from reading, writing, painting, classical dancing, and networking with friends, travel and even scuba diving! She has  seen a bit of the world and travelled around Europe and SE Asia.  It has been a pleasure to interact with her and learn more about aspirations of the new generation of professionals in India.
She believes that:
‘Life is same with every one of us, difference is only in the way we see it :) and so I see every little thing like playing in rain, Smiling at every one, hugging the loved one, holding one close and laughing at myself as a celebration!’

 I think the ( Sari) covers the right amount and exposes the right amount- It is such a tease and I like teasing  is what someone said. To know more read on at    http://ramya-chitrana.blogspot.in/2013/05/a-nine-yard-fantasy.html 

PS: Will proceed on two weeks of holiday on the weekend so this would be the last post till then!!

  9. Rahul,this is a bright post. A sari is the most graceful attire for ladies. I have contacts with many women from different countries visiting our house. They all want my DIL to teach them to wear a sari. Believe me ,they all look very graceful in a sari, and they too acknowledge it.!

  63. This design is spectacular! You obviously know how to keep
    a reader entertained. Between your wit and your videos,
    I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost.
    ..HaHa!) Excellent job. I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than
    that, how you presented it. Too cool!
