Punjabi Cholle Masala.. I have waited for another week to start my holidays but I don't think so that's going to happen soon and now I have stopped waiting and left it to the right time.. In all these days I have learnt one lesson that what ever has to happen it will happen in it's own date and time specially what is not there in my hands... After a week I could not control myself for blogging so I am putting my holidays plan on side for time being and starting to blog again... Feeling so good to be back...
