Yet Another MUST AWAITED weekend~~

Image
It was not even on my mind that daddy would say yes to what I was going to ask. I wanted to go to Chennai for my birthday, to meet my friends and spend the weekend over with them! I was bored in Hyderabad and every weekend here meant watching TV alone and reading books on my bed. I was just not ready to spend my birthday that way here. I decided with all guts to call my dad and ask him. Called mummy first and the answer was 'ask daddy.' I called dad and he said 'ask mummy.' Finally, he said yes! :) :) :) That's when I stopped working for the week!!!

The bus ride to Chennai was miserable... my legs hurt so badly and the bus was late by two hours!! Somehow, I managed to sit through the whole thing with a lot of excitement! I reached and surprised everyone! It was a great weekend! :) :)

A smile...

I had once had a long personal chat with a friend who was not so close/not so far kinds. It was just a moral support chat for both of us and it ended in a very nice "Thank for being there" kinds. The next day he sent me a mail with this poem in it. Here goes,

I have a list of folks I know
all written in a book,
And every now and then
I go and take a look.

That is when I realize
these names they are a part,
not of the book they're written in,
but taken from the heart.

For each Name stands for someone
who has crossed my path sometime,
and in that meeting they have become
the reason and the rhyme.

Although it sounds fantastic
for me to make this claim,
I really am composed
of each remembered name.

Although you're not aware
of any special link,
just knowing you, has shaped my life
more than you could think.

So please don't think my greeting
as just a mere routine,
your name was not
forgotten in between.

For when I send a greeting
that is addressed to you,
it is because you're on the list
of…

A conversation...

A conversation...I was heading home for a much awaited weekend. It was a tiring drive to the airport after work and I needed some rest. I waited impatiently to board with a heavy bag in hand. Once I did, I looked for THE seat near the emergency exit for more leg space. This happens in all domestic flights but Paramount (Travel Business Class baby!) This Spicejet was traveling from Delhi to Coimbatore via Hyderabad. IN these flights its very tough to get a good seat cause the Delhiites take the good ones. To my surprise 2 seats near the emergency exit were free and both were to the window’s side! Lucky me! ;) I quickly found my way to that place and arranged my hand luggage in the compartments above. The isle seat was occupied by an old man (around 60… at least!) who looked a little like Vijay Mallya. He stood up and made way for me to walk in. He was one of those traveling from Delhi… one of those who had the choice of getting the better seats before I could... hmpf! I sat down and in…
