Untold Krishna Lelai - The Bone Breakers:)

I was having a chat with a friend the other day about how am void of topics. She suggested me to write about the same – void.  So here is the post – not on void J
I take a shortcut (meaning not the main road) to reach my station. It usually takes around 7 minutes for me to reach the station from my place. But thanks to the govt, now it takes 12 mins to reach the same place.
Thank the government?  Oh! Yes!!
Recently, I have no idea what has gotten into the minds of the official that they have started laying roads. Probably, Lord Krishna came in their dreams (such things happen, after all India is a God fearing nation – we respect idols more than their principles) and asked them think sensibly and do something for the public (Thank you!)
Now the officials want to do something “wisely” for us, and they called in for an emergency meeting to address and identify the most sensible thing Lord Krishna was talking about.  Immediately a brave soul came up with an idea of laying the roads (what an idea sirji). “Roads it is” and a million was allo(o)tted for the same.
The most common and visible thing in any area in Chennai besides the heat, is the “pit holes”.  They dig up holes for the sake of electricity, sewage water connection (or whatever it is called), telephone, internet and what not. Almost certainly Lord Krishna would have wanted the officials to target these places which actually require some work.
But isn’t it a virtue of an official to do something which is totally unwise and uncalled for instead of what is required?                                                                                                                                                                                                                     
The asuras labeled “SPEED BREAKERS” were born as a result of high degree of misunderstanding..
Speed breakers – the very thought of the word makes me utter all kinds of unethical words. It should be called a “bone breaker”. The purpose of speed breaks is to control the speed of the vehicle, but looks like it has gotten itself a new meaning. It ensures that the person driving breaks his/her bones.   The essence and meaning of a speed breaker has been lost in the transit.
There is four way path in my area, and they have built, what they call a speed breaker in beginning and at the end of each road. I certainly don’t understand the purpose.  If you are a first timer am pretty sure you wouldn’t end up leaving the place without counting the number of teeth in your palms. The speed breakers are very short and narrow seems to me like a layer of adipose in the waist and worst of all it is planted at the beginning and at the end, anyone taking a turn will have the difficulty as there is one immediately on the next road.
And there is place in my area, which actually needs notice. I’m really short of decent words in penning this. My route to the station had 3 speed breaks and now it has gone up to 9 and two under construction- such a sad state! One thing, if heavy vehicles pass by this breaker often, then the road will be back to square one J
I hope Lord Krishna disturbs their sleep once again and tell them exactly he meant – please spoon feed them!
O yeas, I mentioned the void part because, I was thinking on the points that I could use to fill my post with void, and a speed breaker spoiled and spilled my thoughts.
This post is written to settle scores with the little devils called the speed breaks.

Burn the past, Light the future - En Friend(s) eh pola yaru machan?!?!

First and foremost I would like to wish you all a very happy new year!
2011 wasn’t just a year to me; it was a long dragging learning session. Thankfully the session had few breaks at irregular intervals (towards the very end of the year)
It was like the movie Varnam ayiram – Everything happened to me!!  I just wanted 2011 to end and start 2012 with a happy note!!!
I don’t want to brood about the bad parts. Life is definitely a series of pleasure and pain.
The year 2011 did give me a few moments to cherish!
My Birthday (the first interval – Yeas, Nov 26th) – It was my happiest day! My uncle & grams got really emotional. I’ve never seen them that way before. I invited my friends Sruthi, Deepika & Madhuri for Lunch!
They are always full of surprises (OFC, it is part of our tradition!). I was wished happy birthday with a chocolate truffle with apple slices on it (Yummy).  And followed by it was the lunch that my folks had arranged for us.  And that is when Deepika said “we have booked for a movie” (surprise). So we finished our lunch in hurry. We had 15 mins to make it to the theatre and it started pouring cats and dogs (sounds like a movie?)  . We managed to get an auto and as soon as we boarded the rain stopped (Told you- Varnam Ayiram type).  And I kept asking these people about the movie to which they were taking me to. They did really well by not breaking up the suspense. That’s when Madhuri said “They won’t me take me again for a Dhanush movie” Voila! Mayakkam enna it is!!!  I really loved that part (Loved the look on her face when she realized she had blabbered – Cute!). And we did miss the first 20 mins of the movie (Who cares). And all four of took a bus and got back to my place (after such a long time we were using the city bus – A big deal for us, at least we thought so)  and Sruthi shared “the” good news with us(Congrats girl, you still owe us a treat )
And the day ended well!! It felt really good! Thank you girls!!!!!!!

Coorg Trip – Thanks to Subha! This time she made sure we had some good time. Taking off from the Chennai heat and work added to it!! I really enjoyed the trip! (I wish I could pen down more on this, just restricting myself for some reasons: d – Also I ended up watching MI 4 – Why would not enjoy the trip?).

That’s my version of intervals for you from my monotonous mokka life of mine (You can ask the girls for their version- Am sure Subha would have one if not the others)
And about the learning and life hitting hard on me (Never mind, it is all the same for everyone!)

Hope this year showers us with good luck, health and unlimited happiness.

When have nothing to do.....YOU BLOG :)

Blogging has always given me immense pleasure. There was a time when I used to blog about anything and everything on earth.
I used to blog when I was either too happy or too bored. But never did I blog when I was sad . 
Today when I was reading my posts my eyes were filled with tears. The reason was not my work, but the comments that followed it.
The comments took me back to my college life. I had a set of people with whom I was comfortable with, shared things. I was so comfortable with them -  and today when I turn back, they are gone for good. 
I have no regrets. I have great friends , people I can rely on. But it is hard to let things go.
We always tend to erase people of our minds. It's because we grow up and we have lot of 'important' things to attend to. But to erase them from our hearts? I don't even think it is even remotely possible. You cannot just shut your heart from thinking about them. Can you?
AM pretty sure, it's just not me and I have company. At some point of life, you would lost someone over a pointless issue.
We do think about them because of the good times we have had , the fun and everything under the yellow sun.
 They might have annoyed or ignored or even betrayed, but, also loved and cared deeply about  us at some of time. 
And when you think about about them after along time, you'll be tempted to text or  call them. Again, your ego wouldn't let you do it or you don't have their contact numbers or you don't want to  disturb them and let them ignore you and end up posting something like this.

When you think of these people , all you get is a good feeling and the glorious moments you have with them .

And this was right from the bottom of my heart ,but, my mind wouldn't let me post this article without the quote 'First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win'

To all those who really miss me :P This is one is for you :D
Now, start commenting, I will blog about you in another 3 years time:)
