My favourite Summer Hits 2012

I love Music. Who doesn't?

Since I'm uncapable of sitting in a room of silence for more than a few minutes I'm constantly hearing some song or another. While travelling to work I hear the radio and while at home I'm on youtube or on one of the online radios. 

So thinking about music, I thought what are my favourite sommer hits this year, what has been playing constantly on my playlist either on youtube or on my phone. So here are my top 4 in random order:

  1. Carly Rae Jepsen - Call Me Maybe
  2. Owl City feat. Carly Rae Jepsen - Good Time
  3. Romano & Sapienza feat. Rodriguez - Takata 
  4. Flo Rida - Whistle

As far as Bollywood music is concerned, I'm totally loving all songs of Ek tha Tiger and Cocktail. The tracks Banjaara, Mashaallah, Tumhi ho Bandhu and Daru desi have been heard a million times by me :)  A new track in my "all-time-favourite" list is the song Paani Da from the movie Vicky Donor. If you haven't seen this movie yet, then you should definately watch it. Great fun!!!

So what are ur favourite summer hits?

I was sooo excited to start this blog. Before (starting this Blog) I had thousands of thoughts & ideas I wanted to write about. At night, before going to bed, I'd think of all the things jumbled in my head I would like to write about if I had a Blog. And now that I finally have a Blog, somehow all my ideas have gone on a holiday.

Brain on Holiday from

While searching for some pics to support my state of mind, I came across this Blog from Becky Gabriel. I’d like to categorize this Blog as an Art Blog.
If you like landscapes and fruit bowls and cute animal stills, this is the wrong place. But if you like fun pictures as well as fun posts this is the right page to read. ( I just scrolled through a few posts and I can already say that this girl is amazingly talented and extremely funny.)  I’m looking forward to add this to my must read Blog-List and would like to recommend it to others too. The pics are cartoons and I’m bowled over by the creativity in her posts.

Where do people get all their creativity from? This brings me back to my original problem: Writer's Block. So how do other Bloggers cope up with lack of ideas? Bloggers, who have been writing for years and years? I have just published one post and am already thinking of abandoning this Blog. But that wouldn't be fun and not me. So this post will be random rambling and hopefully by next post my brain will be back from holiday, well relaxed and ready to write.

So in this hope...wishing everyone a nice, relaxing Sunday :)

First Post - The Namkaran

My first post on this Blog...FINALLY!!! :)

I’ve been wanting to write one since I started my new job, but somehow I was always able to find one excuse or another…I'm the queen of procrastination. Seriously if there was a discipline in Olympic Sports in Procrastination, I'll probably get all golds. Or if it was a subject in school, I'll get all A's. I'm so good at it :D.

But now I have finally decided to pull up my socks and start writing.

I had a lot of trouble deciding a name for my blog. Since this won't be a theme related blog like about cooking or tech stuff I wasn't sure what to name it.
Ramblings or thoughts about day to day life are going to be my main topics. But the tag "rambling" was already taken by quite a few bloggers so my search was still going on till I decided to name my blog "".

Why this name? Well, I actually like the idea of scrapbook. It has something universal about it. It can be about anything and nothing. Little things that happen in my life, which I find interesting enough to blog about.
And Carpe-diam? Well for all people with spellcheck OCD, I know it's Carpe-Diem, which basically means "seize the day" or as I would like to interpret it: "live life to the fullest". 
My blog says diAM for a reason. Dia is my first name and M is the first letter in my last name. Clever, huh?

P.S.: For the uninitiated...Namkaran is an indian tradition where a new born is named. I consider this blog my baby, hence the title. A bit cheesy? Maybe. But I like it. :D
