Meri Pyari Biwi

Now that we are shifting to UK, we have to do all the packing & sorting out what is needed and what is to be left behind, everything of that sort. 
I finished my packing in an hour or so some 2 weeks back. I decided, I am going to wear this this this and would have to buy warm clothes from UK, hence packing was over in 20 minutes max and half my suitcase was empty. 
Now comes the trun of Trupti to do the packing. Before that she has to do shopping. It's been going on & on & on, since the past 2 months and I have doubts that its going to get over. While we are on the flight to the JuKay she might still be doing the packing!!! :D  
Most of the times she would have already decided what all she has to buy or wear. 
I have to go along and stand there and try to give an honest opinion about what I think. You see, Honestly is sometimes, not the best policy!!! ;-) 

Honestly Batao
Trupti: Aacha listen. Shall I ask you something? Ekdum honestly you should give this answer. Please dont make fun or don't lie today atleast. Aacha honestly batao, do I look fat? 
Me: What? No !!! Not at all... 
Trupti: Really? 
Me: Yup !! No Doubt !!! 
Trupti: Really? Tum mazak toh nahi karr rahe ne??? 
Me: Nahi main mazak karr raha hoon... You are fat !!!! 
Trupti: WHAT????????? 
Me : Yeah... You look no less than Manisha Koirala !!! I am serious... 
Trupti: You are kidding right??? 
Me: Nope... 
Trupti:  Why do you keep calling me fat??? Its not nice at all... 
Me : Ajeeb baat hai... You asked me if I am fat.,.. I said NO... You kept pestering me so I said YOU ARE FAT !!! I thought you wanted to hear that you are fat... I didnt know you didnt want to hear that... Decide what you want yaar... You want to be called fat or thin?? 
Trupti: Thin !!! Tumse toh baat karna bekar hai !!! 
Me : OK You are thin !!! Now can I have my dinner plate back please??? 

B.t.w., Trupti is 10 Kgs underweight for her height !!!! Fat ?????!!!! 

Jeans Shopping

Trupti: I want skinny jeans. Thats the fashion. 
Me: Ok we shall go to Levis Store. 
Trupti: Yyeahhh!! That will be fun... 
Fun?????? OOPS !!! 
Me: Hmmm !! 
Jeans Store... Jeans tried... 
Trupti: How does it look? 
Me: Yup Cool !!! 
Trupti: Are you sure? 
Me: It looks Brilliant !!! 
Trupti: Really? 
Me: I havent ever seen a better fitting jeans ever in my life !!! I am dead serious you must buy it !!! 
Trupti: nahhhhhh !!! I dont like it !!! 
Me: Eh?? OK, shall we try some other store? 
Trupti: Sure !! 
Tried Allen Solly, Pepe,  etc stores. We reach Lee. She tries wait 26 & waist 27. 
Trupti: How does 26 look? 
Me: yeah perfect
Trupti: Let me try 27. 
Changes
Trupti: How is 27? 
Me: Yeah this is also fine. Doesnt make a huge diufference I see. How do you feel? 
Trupti: Nooooooooooo !!! 26 is toooooo tight and 27 is toooo loose... Excuse me, (calls the girl who was helping her choose the jeans) can you please give me something between these sizes?
Last I heard "Lee Jeans" were closing down their store at Khader Nawas Khan Road!!!! 
Later she told me she had already decided to buy Levis Diva jeans. 
OK COOL !!! 

Choosing a Saree

Kini got married on 9th August in B'lore and we had to attend his marriage there. Now the problem is not "HOW DO WE GET THE DAMN TICKETS???!!" but what will meri biwi wear during his marriage? ;-) Tickets got arranged, by the grace of some agent. 
Date: 7th August. Night 10.30. We have to leave on 8th Morning. 
Conversation between me and my wife. 
Trupti: Aacha I have to wear one of these six sarees. Please help me decide what I should wear on your friends reception. 
Me: Why do we have so much stuff? Where are we going after the reception? Why have you planned a vacation? Its just 1 day. We are going to come back in 2 days. Why are you carrying 3 track pants to B'lore? 
Trupti: can you help me decide the saree please? 
Me: Oh yes. Ok, this red color one looks great. And you also can wear your new matching sandals with this. 
Trupti: WHAT????????? RED???? !!!! No I really dont think it matches my hairstyle? It will be too bright... (15 different faces were made, I nearly giggled and got killed. Actully I loved the red color saree)
Me: Hmmmmm, what about this Navy Blue one? 
Trupti: No yaar. I don't like this color at all... I think its very dull... 
Me: Hmmm, This yellow would be great. And its also got that green border, yeah... this is perfect... And it looks so traditional... 
Trupti: Nope not at all... I look like an Aunty in this... 
Me: What about the light blue saree??? Which got all the shinny shinny things on it??? 
Trupti: Bhavdeep you dont understand, the saree shouldnt look more bright than what the bride is wearing. Ok now what do you have to say about this Cream Color Saree? 
Me : Yup this is also cool... You can wear those matching bangles with it... 
Trupti: Bye... Now please let me finish my packing... You have kept all your stuff? 
Me: Yup... Jeans and Kurta... thats perfect for me... 
Trupti: Ok !!! 
Packing done. 4 bags went to  B'lore for 1 day. 
Later she told me she had decided weeks back, that "When we have to go to Kini's Marriage, she had planned to wear the cream colored saree"
Ok Cool !!! 
She already decides what she wants to wear or buy. But biwi hai toh poochna toh padega na. Aur fir meri lagg jaati hai... 
Things already packed and have taken space in my suitcase too: 
  1. Wollens from India. (not suited for UK's cold temp)
  2. Formals from India. (not suited for UK's fashion)
  3. Sarees from India.  (Practically its freezing temp for 5 months there)
  4. Salwar Kammezes from India. (fashion is made in Lecister & London) 
  5. Study material from India. (All books latest pirated versions available on the net) 
Hehehehe... 

Like kids cant let go their toys, girls and wives cant let go the clothes which they loved to wear once, some long time back !!! 

As of today, we have around 150 kilos to be taken to the UK... I don't know if the BA guys would say, "Dudes you guys are not flying alone!!!"  

Baba Meher Karr, Ik "Event Manager" Hi Bhej De !!! 

Ok got to go and do packing !!!
