Kanagu awarded me with this Garland Blog Award!

 Thanks a ton for thinking of me and for those nice words about the blog!!! I will try my best to keep it up!! 🙂 

This post is a loooooong overdue and Kanagu, am really sorry….seriously i was not ignoring but was really getting things start up and running!!


I pass this award to

Manju – Her blogs seem to be short sweet and impressive. Very thought provoking and straight to the point!

IHM – Versatile is the word for her – from simple rablings to future of India, her blog has it all!! U must be knowing now, that I am in love with your writings! One among hundreads of ur fans, count me in! 

Keerthakka – She is a verrrry good lively blogger – writes telugu posts and believe me when u read them, u would feel u r in a conversation face to face! Such is her charm! 🙂 

Nita – Shes already been awarded this award, but still you can have two garlands in your house cant you 😛  This award goes to her coz, her blog is indeed a garland – a garland of many rare flowers, from movies to hot hot politics  evry post she writes is very professional, organised and nevertheless she doesnt miss the humor and liveliness! So for all her flowers, here is a GARLAND! 🙂 

And now coming back to my post !! Yet another ad, that evoked my thoughts!

Har Ghar Kuch Kehta hai!! [asian paints]

I am presently on a house search and incidentally, I saw this ad! If u observe, there is a line which says 

Har ghar chup chaap se yeh kehta hai ki andar usmein kaun rehta hai?

Kaun chun chunke ise pyaar se sajaata hai?

Kaun is makaan mein apna ghar basaata hai? 

To us, House is not just a  house, a home! We build it with our own hands , keenly observing, planning and putting all of our lifes efforts in it ….dont we?

We decorate it, do wood work, that work this work etc continuosly!! We form an attachment to it, just we bond with family and friends, we develop a bond with our home!! 

We proudly sit in the verandah [portico] of the house, with a expression ” Mera Apna Ghar” sipping coffee reading paper everyday! 

Do we find so many emotions at once that too relating a non living thing anywhere else??

    Awww Sahaja Thank You 🙂

    This is the first blog I am reading this morning and this is such a lovely surprise!!!!

    I feel so lucky to have started blogging and found like minded friends … and some not like minded wonderful friends too 🙂
    Love your comments and your lively, chirpy, cheerful posts …

    My family says “yeah we know Sahaja likes this ad” whenever the other ad about India and money you blogged about comes on TV … [Money is not just money].. I had never noticed that ad earlier!
    Thank You 🙂

    I LOVE this ad. We have some similar colours in and the same bamboo blinds!!! But what I love the most are the words … specially ‘is ghar mein kiske bachche nange pair chalte hain…’
