I know this has become a pattern to start my blog with an apology, so keeping up with the tradition I apologise yet another time…I’m so sorry for not blogging as my life has been turned upside down,inside out in the past week as the marriage is nearing,so hope you understand.Can’t tell you how overjoyed I am - glad to see shamita back I spent every minute I could in the midst of my chaotic life to bond with her and make up for all the lost time. All is in order, friends and family have got together to put up a very sweet skit… a lot of surprises, effort, excitment and above all just the sheer pleasure of seeing everyone do it from their heart. A comical musical, choreographed and directed by long time friend Ganesh Hegde. Its hilarious to see family act and dance!hahaha Anyway amongst all the trials (umpteen trousseau outfits and jewellery) there comes tribulations. My father in the midst of all this wedding preparation was not feeling too well and had high temperature. After much coaxing we asked him to get a blood test done and much to our chagrin he tested positive for not one but two types of malaria!! (yeah! you read that right) we had to rush him to the ICU late last night as they kept him under observation. So the whole family was under a lot of stress considering we were all meant to leave for khandala the next day and didnt know how to take things forward. The good news is that he’s recuperating pretty well and is out of the ICU now with mom by his side. As per schedule Shamita and I headed to khandala today so here we are because that’s what Dad wanted, as the mehendi and sangeet happen on 21st and the wedding happens on 22nd. I don’t know how to put my feelings in words…this is a day that my family and I have waited for….its all happening so fast only wish dad and mom could’ve been a part of every moment.Like my mom says what cannot be cured must be endured! So the last 24 hours have been quite trying but on a positive note I’m glad we got to know of dad’s illness 2 days earlier as now he can atleast be there for the wedding and do the kanyadaan hoping and praying that he gets well soon cause there’s nothing that works like prayers. Settin off for my mehendi now. Thanks for all the best wishes from family and friends… will write to you very soon.. .as Shilpa Shetty Kundra THIS IS IT!
