Monsoon for me means: Monsoon for me is the most relaxed and laziest time of the year. The dark skies and the heavy clouds make me lazier more than ever.
My first thought about monsoon: The first thought that pops up in my mind when I think about monsoon is to sit besides my balcony with a warm cup of tea and watch the rain drops falling.
My most memorable monsoon moment: My most memorable monsoon moment is with Avinash Sachdev, about one and a half years back when we had been to Lonavala. It was a sudden plan whereby we picked up our friends from Kharghar and went all the way to Lonavala at 2:30 in the night. We all waited at the Tiger's Point till 7 in the morning just to watch the beautiful sunrise.
My childhood monsoon memory: I remember during my childhood, I used to handover my bag to the bus conductor and skip my school bus. Thereafter, I used to go home walking in the rains.
My monsoon music: Monsoon is a season when I automatically tune into some soft and slow songs. These days I'm listening to the 'Kabira' song from the movie Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani and 'Main Tenu Samjawa Ki'.
My monsoon special khaana: Well, when it comes to Khaana, I'm quite finicky about eating from outside during the monsoon. Therefore, I prefer to eat healthy and hygienic home-made food. Also, whenever I make a visit to Lonavala, I never forget to have corn bhajiyas and garama-garam chai.
Monsoon is a lover's paradise: I believe that love doesn't require any season. There is no particular time to romance. Instead I would say that monsoon is a bahaana to chill-out, go out for a long drive and spend some time chit-chatting with friends.
Places I would like to visit during monsoon: I had been to Lonavala just a couple of days back with Avinash. In future, I would like to visit Bhander Grah in Igatpuri, as suggested by my director.
Precautions I take during monsoon: Since there is less exposure to sun during rains, due to which my skin usually gets dampened, so I make it a point to include cleansing and toning in my daily routine.
One thing I don't forget to carry during monsoon: Obviously it has to be my umbrella. I have a fetish for umbrellas. This monsoon, I've got myself a pure white chiffon umbrella. Apart from this, I have a wide range of fashionista umbrellas including a polka dot umbrella, a black umbrella with neon pink designs on it and many more.
My monsoon mantra: I just follow one mantra in my live- Enjoy your Life. Live and let Live!
