Not a penny less,not a penny more!!

The moment I came to know this I logged in for a new entry...what could it be??heehee..!!Exam's postponed,the one tomorrow..sigh of relief..but getting in sync again with the exam atmosphere after 2 days would be again a head ache!What I say,when it comes to exams is "its a passing phase and let it go as soon as possible,regardless of what performance you deliver." :P

I've many times made an entry on exams postponed!!yipppeee!!buut its not the same today,come on now how many times do you expect me to blabber on the same thing?So..I wanna tell you something that happened today.


*********People reading this blog might be earning in 6 digits but they'd definitely know the value of a stiff 10 and a five coin lying in the corner their pocket..***************


Exam time,2 exams a day-4 in two and the remaining two alternate days..so I would have sat preparing for the test tomorrow instead here...ah..coming on today,past two days have been very hectic,it felt as if I was born just to study..nah!nah!I am not that studious,I felt that only coz we had two exams a day..Ok!I think you are convinced now how tired I was past two days..so I'd tell you about today...actually nothing for which you'd say-hawww!awww!!happened.

We were returning from college to home,I travell by RTC (the local bus service in the state)..I was happy that unlike yesterday,we got the bus early and I'd reach home early by 5,but what I'd do before 7(I start studying at 7)..sitting idle,my mind would run in this that corners,distracting me from studies..."No!you wouldn't reach early by 5,"said my bag which fell down the bus(i kept it on the engine..remember..exams,books..so,it was heavy to carry on my shoulder..so kept it on the engine).Their was a steep turning,and it fell down..the dog!buswalla stopped after shouting stop!stop!..Loser he said"bag gira toh main kya karoon?"My friend ran down to take the bag,I ran after her..the bus moved away leaving us behind :( Meanwhile,two three bikers stopped and took my bag..Now what? We are left with no bus and the next stop is more than a 1.5 kms away and no bus would stop in the middle for us,adding more to that I had great 15 large bucks in my bag and the friend of mine left her bag in the bus.The route by which we travel is a highway kinds..big road,fast moving vehicles..The other side of the road was under construction...so we chose that path to walk,greater than 1.5 kms stretch!!!!We could see the church's cross mark far their at the next stop...I thought if we'd get water here somewhere...and I saw a boy carrying a bottle,uhhhh..their was a water tanker waiting at a distance!I said"paani peene ka mazaa aur ayega,if we run and go..lets run,"we ran and for the first time,I drank water from a water tanker...heehee I suddenly remember my mom saying.."eeks donno,how old the water in the tanker may be,with what all insect their in!" and the next moment i spitted out the water :P


Walking,walking...I saw a juice stand..we thought,we'd buy only one..I asked him and he said-"mosambi,15 rs!"...with a wide mouth we said "kya?"and moved on...oh...i never felt so poor,we realized what a glass of mosambi juice means,we'd just gulp it not even looking into the glass..and today,we didn't even get the glass to see!!Every pillion rider stared at us,as if we came from some other planet!
Finally,the bus stop came and we stood their..hiring an auto was no option in that area and going by a private bus meant more money..so again waiting for the local buses was the only option,the tickets would cost us 10 bucks till home and remaining five...hahhh!!remaining 5,their comes a jaam wala on the other side of the road,we crossed the road and bargained their too..we chose two guavas he said one for 2 rs,the other for 3,we told the guy that,no bhaiyya,we don't have money..and the poor fella gave us two in 4 rupees!!yipppeee!!!!
The guava was almost completed and the bus came..I can never forget that sight..we standing,guavas in hand in front of a mandir(mandir and church opposite to each other)Kali mandir it was...all the ghantas and bhajans going...people looking at us like weirdos !!Heehee!!

The whole movie took place for 2 hours and I was home by 6:15 like yesterday again,giving no chance to my mind to deviate! :P


Lesson learnt:will never keep my bag on the engine... :P

Tomorrow!!Paper boats??

Rain Rain go away come again another day,
Not so little Nameera wanna celebrate her Birthday.. :P

Thanks!Thanks its a good one I know..

Gosh!!I remember When our Chief Minister passed away,last month,everyone cried saying.."now no rains..he was our good luck charm .."
The day he passed away they said"the sky is crying.."(Ok..I've got nothing to ठेस पोह्चाओ anyones sentiments with this..)
How they cursed Chandra Babu Naidu,coz it didn't rain during his tenure..
Oh..birthday blogs got nothing to do with deaths..oh..oh..ok!!

So..water on tomorrows birthday plans has already been poured..as its heavily raining here..whole A.P is flooded and my parents feel that i'll get drowned if i go out to celebrate..so..staying back at home and making happy birthday boats and floating it in the water outside the gate would be the scene tomorrow..heehee..you think I am gonna do that??dont worry..I'll let you know how it went,for now will take you to my last birthday come....

As it clicked 12..not so welcomed school friend of mine sms'd me,called me too but I didn't take her call..I know I know I am bad..(but why I am bad..will let you know in my friends blog..which will come soon when i don't get anything to blabber).Messages poured and poured,this was my first birthday with my own cell..so the experience was a very new one..
The biggest surprise was the innumerous graphics ppl pasted in my scrap book,Orkutians never stay behind wishing one on a birthday..so..I was quite happy to see so many birthday scraps in my Scrap book.
Birthday plan was nothing in particular,i just wanted to spend time with loved ones so..I and my sister went to pick two of my very best friends ..where I was pampered,gifted and all the special treatment..photos and all..and then we went to a mall..a very Hi Fi one,here you can only lotofy your parents,spending your own money,no ways!so..I remember I liked a silly bracelet of Rs 200,I just wanted to buy it,so I said my sister"I'll pay for it now,but I want it as a gift from you,you'll pay me back home no?"She very sincerely nodded and hey she still didn't pay me,thats what you called self gifting!! :D

Then we lunched in a vegeterian restaurant,we were quite hungry so we thought pizza and all wont do..so..full time meals you see .. :P..no not thali..we had aa...some Pulao and ice cream was awesome..mmmm!!
There had been many birthdays but I was never showered with so many calls and messages so..this birthday in a way was a very special one!
Then we returned home and Pa said "we are going out for dinner.."And I don't remember whose flop idea that was--eating authentic Rayalseema food!God,we tried four dishes and every time it was the same..each dish tasted as if they grounded all the chillies Rayalseema had and poured into the chicken!It was horrible!!The restaurant was called"Rayalseema Rochulu.."heehee..

There was no cake only!I am not that crazy about cakes,but birthday cake is a birthday cake,..no?
Coming to this year,I thought I'd celebrate four days..starting from thursday..but on thursday when I reached home I saw my sister lying on bed sick,so i did laundry(Bai washes no clothes, 1100 just for the other house hold chores).Friday I thought come on!even you might get a wake up call watching this..Go,watch it..I saw wake up sid,with my college friends..same old concept there was nothing which could inspire me to wake up..Saturday,today..its raining heavilyy..and I am here blogging!!

And tomorrow..Paper boats may be... :D

Ting Ting!!Attention Please!!!



Ting!!Ting.."Attention please....."(if you didn't get it that was the litany one'd get to hear on Airports,railway stations and I love it).Whose going where?No I am not going anywhere...so is the new blog entry...

JK started for a holiday today, the flight was at 10:15 and from eight till ten,the only lines hammering my ears were these "Ting..ting!ting ting!..attention please!","Namaskaar!"

I bugged my friend the whole day that,even i wanna go on a holiday ..even i wanna go on one!!

It's been so long we've been on a holiday..being to a station was always so much of excitement ..and still is..but now ,no holidays ,no plans,no tours!I was discussing the same with Mom and mum replies"You ppl are grown up now beta.."

I remember,when I was a kid.. I always craved for more relatives only cos we'd get more places to go..and we didn't have many... so.. :( I remember,how our tours were planned all before exams, so that we don't feel that incompleteness,that emptiness among us..Pa,Ma has never let us feel so..there was always a trip ready waiting for us after exams..where my friends would narrate us their Grannys and Mammas fights,we used to tell them about our trips...I remember how I envied them(They envied us too secretly.. :P).I always thought I've been missing so many things...those joint family fights,the big dinning table unlike a 6 chaired one :D
But how things change?I don't feel the same now...I miss those sudden trips planned by Papa..hahha..I can recall..We used to sit watching T.V on a weekend waiting for Pa to come and from somewhere he gets a Sumo saying"Hey!pack your bags..we are going..."
I remember how Pa used to stare at us trying to find out that happiness..that excitement on our faces which normally the other kids wear while traveling..and We use to wear that same normal look..cos tour was no big deal..we used to go after every quarterly,half yearly exams.... And suddenly you grow up..and you have thousand reasons for not going on one..every other day anyone among three of us would have exams,Pa and ma's biggest excuse-Office!!
Things change so rapidly..No things don't change.. With my limited knowledge,it's a human tendency to run after things they don't have..and when they are their..you don't care..and when they are not you cry..the way I did squealing like a mouse ..whole day!!
Why did we grow up?It was so nice when we were kids..every other day Mysore,Ooty,Manali,Bangalore,Goa,Bombay..I miss it all..!!and as far as i remember its been five big years I traveled out of Hyderabad :( ..sacrificing which I got a seat in an Engineering college(which's not even worth all the sacrifice!)and at the end of this year would get my certificate too..



At last..
रात गंवाई सोय के, दिवस गंवाया खाय ।
हीरा जन्म अमोल था, कोड़ी बदले जाय ॥

Exactly the right conclusion..but what is -कोड़ी बदले जाय ॥ :P
Ok..simple English words..."Live every Moment,not envying others...!!"
