Its been a long break for me......i had fun..
I will reply to all the comments as soon as i can..this is just a filler post!
I hope you all had a great Diwali!!!!!!!!!!!!
It all started last thursday, when the rain Gods wanted to make up for all those years of denial to chennai...42 cms of rain , all in a day! MY oh MY!!!
We didnt have power that day, all of thursday..but it was an eye-opener for a couch potato like me. Ideally, i would spend every waking hour in the weekends glued to the television if i am not out shopping or something......but not on thursday, there wasnt a choice, i was getting bored....so what did i do?I played cards with the kids next door. There are five kids there.....and around seven of us played cards... where was that kid in me all along?????
I wanted to come to work on Friday. I left home and waited for half-an -hour in the bus-stop.....no hope..no bus...no auto...the roads leading to velachery were really flooded...no trains were running till noon...i could only imagine what horror mumbai would have been through..we only got 42 cms rain and look at the city....there was no means of travel for me....i didnt want to risk driving 18 kms along muddy paths where roads had been!!!!!!
water had entered some of my friends houses near my area....they had moved to relatives' houses.....thank God..atleast water didnt enter my house....
and then i had deepavali holidays!!!!wow! 6 days in a row, long time sicne i had that kind of holiday!
i just lazed around, helped myself to generous amount of sweets, playes all the more with all the kids, and like always, enjoyed the simple pleasures of life..............
It is such a blessing
if you could,not always,
but just once in a while,
fill in your life's moments,
with large doses of nothingness,
let time do what it does, move on,
as you just sit back and relax!
