The week-end that was...

The weekend is over...and i must say it was one of the nicest weekends i have had in a while...of course i was running fever for most part of it and gourav was nursing a twisted wrist, but we still had a very nice weekend. gourav was gone during the week and therefore the time we had together seemed rather special! It started with me trying my hand at some traditional Indian food, since it was shivratri on friday. I had set my heart on trying some traditional food and i surpassed my own expectations! i was highly impressed with the outcome and so was gourav! then sat was the "finish" chores day and we had a cousins movie night and i saw an amazing Indian movie, now indian movies in general run for 3 hours or more but this movie was 2 hours, so it had that to it's credit and so i was thinking even if it's bad, it's a short torture....the movie started with all these vibrant colors and wonderful acting by boman irani and can you believe even raima sen!!! she's not unbearable. but i think the cream on the cake was amitabh bachchan. I cannot stand a screaming amitabh, but this was a surprisingly calm amitabh and very controlled performance by him.

The last day of the weekend saw me trying my hand at some daal-bati...it's a Rajasthani dish and it's very very rich, with lots of ghee in it! And i did make them well, only to feel guilty about the loads of ghee both of us had consumed that day!

Sometimes people say some things which make u see what kind of people they are and sometimes the things that one should've said and didnt say also tells you what kind of a person he/she is. One such moment this weekend, gave me an opportunity to learn something important about people this weekend.
