Bored of the same routine

Winters in US are very boring. First thing is the weather which depresses you to no end. Second is the cold don't want to go out anywhere in this snowy weather.
My daily routine is changed to office- home- episodes of Prison Break and sleep.
Thanks God for gym which gives me a good boost in the evenings and prevents me from feeling lethargic.
An addition to our evenings has been the series Prison Break. Prison Break is an American television serial drama created by Paul Scheuring, that was broadcast on the Fox Broadcasting Company from 2005 until 2009. The series revolves around two brothers; one has been sentenced to death for a crime he did not commit, and the other devises an elaborate plan to help his brother escape prison.

The first series was so suspense filled, adrenaline pumping, nail biting, could not figure out "What's Next" the 2nd series I was getting a little pissed off that it got way too much attention from my hubby :) yes things like this can piss me off to no end, by the 3rd series I wanted to strangle the main characters with my own hands, in fact I even decided to stop watching it but none the else..continued on and the 4th series it turned to a comedy one, hubby and I keep laughing at all the fake seriousness around. 4 more episodes and will be done with this one, then we intend to start on LOST ..another American sitcom...:)

And then she entered my life..................

And then she entered my life. N has been and will remain always special to me. It was not that we hit it off instantly because even after they moved opposite to our building I hardly spoke to her. She and another friend R were always together being from the same school and all.
In fact initially when they moved in her Dad asked her to go out with us and she did come for a night walk but me being the introvert hardly spoke to her, my sis did all the talking.
Somewhere at the end of my 10Th std examination is when I got talking and hanging to her and R. Slowly we both realized we had way too much fun with each other. We could talk about anything and everything in this world, could talk out loud of all our dreams & aspirations without being judged by the other.
Could ogle together at good-looking guys :), play mischief on aunties in the colony, puncture cycle tyres, climb trees to get mangoes, cheat in carom, monopoly..we always had each others backs covered.
She was the one person whom I could tell about anything wrong that I have done without being judged. She is the one and only person till date to know all my secrets.
We went to the same college and so got more time to spend together though in college we had different groups. We always exchanged cards/gifts on Friendship Day.
Those Summer vacations I was never at my place, all the time hanging out from morn till nite, inface we even had a schedule for that. Morn after breakfast we would play carom with the bachha party, then come home for lunch, then again go and play monopoly or just ghupshup, come home for tea, then go out again to play, come home for dinner and then again for night walk, in fact it came to such a point that our dads started complaining that they hardly got to see their daughters..well hanging out with friends was more important at that time :)
Now she is married and has a Son, we are in touch via email but will definitely meet her when I go back.

Till then to N for always being there for me.

Old Friends and New Friends

Old Friends and New Friends
We make as they come
These are the people
Who bring joy a ton
Oh! what a life we would have to live
if it wasn't for this Family of Friends

Jan 3rd 2011 - My Sister - My Friend

So once we moved to Dehuroad somewhere in the year 1983 it was a small community of people we got acquainted with. There were not many kids and majority of the few ones were my sister and me spend most of the time together...we were always together to go out to the library at the club or to parties at the club..she helped me with my studies..helped me to learn bicycle..ofcourse we fought a lot too.
Infact in some fights we would hit each other too, my parents learnt early on never to interfere in our fights bcoz if they did, after some time we would resolve our fights and they would turn out to be the villians...:)
We could never stay without talking to each other for a long time though...she would cut my hair like the famous sadhna cut at that time and my mom would yell at both of us.
She would do all the housework which ended up in me being lazy as a bum..sometiems when she was angry she would tell my mom--why do i have to do everything , why cant she? but when I would go to wash the dishes or something she would not allow me to do anything..
She would tell me all her secrets..oooh she can talk non-stop..after college life, when she went to work it was morn to late at nite and we got to talk very less, then she got married and then we spoke even more less...some hardships in her life where I tried but did not help much..infact at that time I was myself very angry with her and to add to all that I had some of my own personal issues.
Thankfully all that has been left behind and we have come out of it once more friendly and even stronger bond between us.
Luv u Sis!

Jan1st 2011 - My First Best Friend

My first childhood friend J in Kirkee. Our family were friends and being of the same age it was just obvious that we got friendly. We played together..had nightouts dinner together..celebrated Christmas together and without actually trying were with each other. We happened to go to different school's though but that did not matter as all evenings we were together.
Then we got transferred to Dehuroad but even then we did meet up once in a month when we went to their place or they came to ours. There was no telephone at that time that we could talk regularly, but when we went I remember how we would tell each other that in letter writing in English she wrote a letter to her best friend addressed to me and I was so happy to hear it.
After a few years the visiting became less frequent and we made other friends and went on with our lives
She is now mommy to a beautiful daughter. We still meet at family occassions though very rare but still have all news about each other as our family is still in touch.
But dear J you will always be my first best friend.
