Chappad Phad Ke

There is a saying in Hindi – Bhagwaan jab kuch deta hai Chappad phaad ke deta hai – When god gives something, he gives in enormous quantities! Remember my “Socialization” – a month prior to that I was complaining almost every alternate day to the Mr. that we don’t have any friends here at all, we are a lonesome twosome and that he did not care and blah and blah …. And now, we are not free a single day! Gone are those glorious days when we basked in the soft blue light of the TV for ages in the evenings, sipping tea and drinking in all the dialogues from the zillion movies that we saw. Aaj yeh halat hai ki we hardly see the movies that we get from the library – and the funniest part is all those movies that I placed “Holds” for about 4 months ago are all getting “Available for pick up” now! No – I am not at all complaining. I am loving this action packed life we are having. After all, getting to see other humans is always something nice – is it not why we all live in societies? And “touchwood” all the company we are having is so nice – none of those “formality sake” types.

I thought it was only the MR. who had extremities of nature and now find that God also is in the same league! Guess God must also be a Gemini!

Thanks, Vidya! I wanted to mention this yesterday itself, but sort of slipped out of my mind..I read all your posts and I felt we both think alike and that our lives are also sort of similar...Right from Little March to Agatha Christie, from Bangalore's Ebony to the swimming and driving classes, from our stern but soft inside dads to the Friday saree trend... Almost everything seems like it had happened to me too....

Am really glad to have found u! :-)
