7 days spent..!!

27th june:
Boarded the train at 9:45!
Haw!How elated I was like a small kid to do that..after 6-7 long years.After running in to a long argument with mom that I shouldn't be standing near the exit..I succeeded and tried striking a "saathiya "pose.. :D

darkness..darkness and darkness...I could see nothing from the window.I reserved a passage seat for myself,pushing my sister aside.Then started smsing,surprisingly the network was there all the way.Sat typing and typing,I wasn't sleepy..The idea of reading flopped,One of the uncles in the boogie asked me to switch of the lights.. :(
Smsed one of my friend Anukul-"Bhai merko koi Love story bolo..yeh log light band karne ko bole.."he replied-"love stories boring hoti hai... :P"

I was trying to let few secrets out of him..but... :P I thought of calling Jeet,he probably has got many..but..11 o'clock-weekend and asking poor man to narrate stories,His BV would surely kill me :D

Sat smsing Annu till 1..glaring outside..I could see nothing but the darkness..and after some time my eyes landed into the same darkness we call sleep.. :P

Was up again at 3:30 and pinged bhai..and slept again..Mom woke me up"get up..look how beautiful it's outside..!"

We borrowed paste from an uncle..My potter sis did that by greeting him Good Morning!;)

Now was the time to swing in the air..So Did I...haaa...cool breeze messing my already messed hair.. :P
Well...that was the last time I felt the cool breeze..

My uncle arranged a taxi for us..and everyone there looked at us as if we were from a different planet!

This was the first time I ever saw a village..How gleeful it looked on 70 mm screen..actor running in the midst of fields after the chick..The huts,meadows..buffaloes,ponds etc..
Did I enjoy?
Well..it takes much-much-much to enjoy that..
Depriving self of technology..
No 24*7 water supply Is what I discovered by seeing N number of tumblers at the entrance of the home..
My pious multi-religious mom felt that We should start our sight seeing,what ever plans by first visiting a dargha..
I had to go too..Silly thing I noticed was a small mandir kinda made in the dargha..coz they percept that the snake would come here at night and it's the one which protects the dargha..

Well..I violated all the rules I made;
ate mothi chur ka laddu-(As a welcome sweet)
Ate fultoo oiled pesarattu(dosa made of green gram)
escaped one more laddu..(starter at lunch :P)
escaped crabs.. eeks!!
Had to unwillingly violate my anti-dinner platter!
The change in ambience and food had to take it's toll..I drank so many colas and sodas that I caught cold!

Well...you don't need an alarm here to wake up..The power goes off at 6 or so..and you are up!
I told you didn't I?that the shopping soap will not be over yet...yeah it continued here..
Mom felt that Hyderabad's gold's impure...So we landed in to a gold shop..and then Saree's!!

All kuchcha roads and when you are in the auto...Your spine and a** is completely gone! :P
Went to a beach...
I can say I had fun !!Sat at the back side of the mini taxi waving everyone!yelled if they didn't waved us back :P
Saw river godavari!!
you get to learn things as you get used to!Woke up at 10:30!I am an early riser but..when you are on a holiday..and that too minus electricity;chalta hai!
Spent whole day at home lazily..Then we went to farms..It was good,all coconut and banyan ,lemon trees..

There was a small canal like water flowing body and we expected snakes to come there and sat on a small bridge kinda built cemented wall..gazing water.
We sat there for a long time,more than a hour..

Me and my cousin resting elbows on our thighs..
I said-"hey look,it's looking like a snake,but it's not one.."
yippee!I spotted first,it was actually a snake!
I can't even recall when was the last time I sat in an ambassador,I did today!We went to Rajahmundry,saw Arthur cotton barrage..
and on our way we tooka a boat ride in Godavari..I don't know how long Godavari is but any water body,they said-"Godavari" :D
saw ISKCON temple..how peaceful it was!And how tidy it was!thankfully!
Cameras were prohibited but I did manage to take two snaps!
Never give company to women when they are out to buy sarees or nursaries!
Huhh!Are their No nurseries in hyd?
Mum bought dozens of roses and other saplings!

How much did we patao Mum and Uncle for this place-Antarvedi beach..
I got scared seeing the big waves.
We couldn't enjoy much!
a:coz some other cousin with some other aunt came in!
b:maatey and others had their role to play!They didn't allow us to go deep in the water... :(

I didn't quite understand the pattern of food they eat here,idli-dosa i morning is ok..but idli dosa as dinner?
the ladies were not in a state to go and cook,so we halted at a motel and ate rawa dosa and idli!Well..Idli toooo...

Gosh!I never ever expected such a a farewell...
Boxes of sweets and Achars and prawns and..and..the lsit would go on..came with 4 suit cases and going back with 6 and the stay was for 6 days!duhh!

My cousin started crying from the day before of departure and cried whole day..hiding his face in his moms anchaal.. :P
I shed 2 with him...
Every one cried cried... ;P

I took snaps when they did that..

boarded train at 7:20!
With reference to my previous blog;

"I've been invited to return the favor of their once home-coming stay!.."
Would say not completely true..

Good to hear that Indian Trains have networks all the way...If you dare travel in the UK, half the leg would not catch a signal :-( and still we look upon British who launched the rail network in India. Now I know its not the rail network but the telecoms issue but still UK is not as big as many of Indian states.
