Mango And Coconut Ice cream

Remember Ekta Kapoor's serial of 3 sisters..which was called "Kasamh Se"!!! Back in my teenage years, I used to be a huge fan of that serial. Last week, I noticed this serial is being aired on Zee World channel with
English dubbing. At that time Ekta Kapoor used to rule the silver screen with her serials, all starting with the letter "K". "Kasauti Zindegi ki", "Kahin To Hoga", "Kahani Ghar Ghar Ghar Ki"...and the unforgettable "Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi". Phew...!!!!

Watching "Kasamh Se" again, brought back a lot of beautiful memories, the sweet forgotten years of my teenage life. When bubbling with the excitement of the first crush, this serial showed me the shy feeling of falling in love...and a big lot of drama and evilness. :)

My mother did not allow me to watch these serials. But somehow, sometimes I used to have chances to have a sneak peak into their reel life. Drooling over Bani's (the main female lead) beautifula salwars and kurtas I grew up, and with time floated over to other serials, from them again to others, until I got fed up with their same plots and decided to not to watch them anymore. There are always some serious dramas going on in my real life too....which requires more attention from me. So bye bye... gooey faced lovers, bye bye beautiful statement necklaces and costume jeweleries, and last but not the least, the romantic backdrops and evil in-laws.
