Officially the last post was the only one from my blogs which had no reference to the opposite sex what so ever. Well with the number of people who read it, I could figure what people liked to read. Come on guys. To all those people expecting something spicy 😉 I have one. Alt + F4. This blog is totally unlike me but this week was a week full of mixed emotions. Its more like a page from my personal diary.
After, really, a long time I was not “vetti”, instead was busy with my life which has been really good for the past 2 weeks. No time to add a post or check my comments for the previous one. It feels great when you are enjoying what you are doing. Sighhh..
I went to Chennai not after a long time but for one great occasion. I was expecting a scorching hot Chennai to welcome me but SURPRISE, cyclone Laila!! Everything was well set for my visit and I wanted to take the MTC (Metropolitan Transport Corporation) bus to reach home from Airport. I am not the guy who enjoys bus travels but just because I didn’t use MTC since my 9th grade wanted to take it to reach home. With all enthu started walking to the nearest bus stop and soon I realized it was a wrong decision. No bus stops near by or rather I lost my way and had to walk quite a bit to reach a stop only to know that the bus I need to take doesn’t stop there.
Then there was the great Chennai Autos to save me. The Autowala demanded a huge amount which I felt was little too much before I got in the auto. After a long time travelling in Chennai Autos brought back good memories. Last time I travelled in one the minimum amount was 7 and now it was 14. Then I realized no wonder he demanded so much when the minimum amount got doubled in the years.
Finally, Home Sweet Home. My mom was there as usual to welcome me with her hug and chicken she made for me. It’s that time you realize there are lots in life than the just mundane office and hotel made food. She had taken the week off just to spend time with me and the food that she knows I love without even me asking for it. Where else you get to have bed coffees with lots of love and timely food served hot right in your couch. Realized home is the best place to be.You get to talk so little yet feel like having the best conversation.
My dad came over the next day and we were ready with all the shopping done just before the big day. The occasion was my parents 25th wedding anniversary. I wanted to do so much but my parents wanted to keep it simple. Lots of discussions between me and my brother to plan the surprise gift. Roaming in the rains to get the gifts which will bring that smile and kiss from your parents. Priceless.
After all brainstorming settled for small gifts and the day started. Absolutely no clue for me and my brother as in when and how to break the surprise gift. Went to church, breakfast at Saravana Bhavan. Guests came home. Still no proper time to get the gifts out. Lots of clicks and lots of time to make my parents feel that their kids settled with a card. Finally while all the guests were leaving kept the gifts in a cover unattended in the couch. The moment when my dad believed the guests had forgotten this and left, when we started laughing and when they opened them was definitely better than everything else in world.
Unfortunately vacation had to get over and I had to come back to Pune thinking about the days when I used to ask for money to go outside with my friends to the days when I can get them what I feel they will like. Lots have changed. The love keeps growing. Now here I am back in Pune writing my blog on the eve of my Birthday missing my parents.
