A day to remember!!

It was around 7pm in the evening last Sunday and we headed to Marina beach with our family.We had never been to Marina beach this early in an evening on a weekend & I dont have any words to describe the crowd..!!! Hawkers occupied almost every single place available. Whatever happened to "Clean up Marina" by the government?

There were around eight of us & we had to really put oil into our eyes to search a place & sit.The water was a bit violent owing to new moon day.We played in the water for sometime & then started chatting happily enjoying the breeze.Not to forget that J & I had a small argument secretly amidst the gang ;).

A shabbily dressed man came with a monkey.Oh god..!! The monkey came near us & he made it do somersault & sang some movie numbers.I was eventually relieved when the guy left & then saw him doing the same with his next victim.J attended a call in between all this.There came a woman selling flowers followed by an elderly man who sold Coffee.

Then came a small boy selling "sundal"(an evening snack made with dal n spices). He would be hardly class five & was carrying a large vessel. He was pestering & sat near us. He was nagging that he had not sold a single piece since morning.I felt a little soft corner for that guy & by the time I thought that may be we should buy, he left from the place.

We sat for few more minutes & decided to move. Just as we stood up, J realized that his mobile was missing.It was nowhere near & then it striked us that he had kept his mobile down in the blanket on which we were sitting & this small guy has tactfully deviated us & taken it.
By this time rain was pouring heavily & we started searching frantically to trace the guy but all in vain.We tried calling the number & it rang twice after which it was switched off.We gave complaint in the beach police & left with worried faces.

We know the EMEI number,the police say that if the mobile is switched on we can trace it through cyber crime.All this only if they switch on the mobile.This will never happen. Thieves are always one step ahead!!

How eight adults sitting there were easily cheated by a small guy?If only these people show such intelligence in proper places we would not have lost an N70 nokia mobile.

Folks,beware, "Opportunity+Desire=Theft" !!

Morning Talk

A story finally!! For a change this time its by my husband J.He says that my stories inspired him to write one(So sweet you..even if its really not true ;) )!! Here it goes after my role as an editor.

Morning Talk

It was a very bright sunny morning when 4 year old Vandy woke up from her pink teddy bear bed. Normally her mom would have to drag her from bed with the usual cup of chocolate Complan but today she was up early! She walked into the living room to see the commotion that woke her up.

“Its been 5 years & I have not seen any change in you, you have been the same egotist, adamant person!! Its incredible how you complain about such small things..Its high time that we proceed with the papers.. I’m really pissed off with you..there is no peace in this house” told Vandy’s dad & walked away throwing the morning papers.

With the hot vessel in her hand, her mom yelled & came out from the kitchen. “Shut up you idiot!! Dont you dare speak these words to me….we started our acting careers together…but I left it for us..our future.. but have changed.. you are not the same person whom I loved.. all your loving words seem to have vanished after marriage…”

“Its all because of you Purni …You started it ..not me!! You & your investigation about my coming late last night..”

“Huh its been the fifth time that you missed your promise for taking us out to dinner you know when was the last time we talked romantically or we went out as a family..its been months now..”

“What the hell do you have been in acting..dont you know the complexity involved.?? For god’s sake for who am I striving so hard sitting late??Dont you, of people realize that Purni..”

“You go early in the morning & come back everyday so will you know what it feels for a girl who has left behind a career to sit alone whole day..there is no deviation ..its home home & home all through out..cant you just spare a few minutes with the people whom you love..”

Her voice was interrupted by little Vandy,

“Daddy.. is this your new sitcom?? long are you going to practice the dialogues with Daddy.. I’m hungry..wheres my chocolate complan??!!”

A moment of silence followed after which,

"On the way..” said Purni & smiled at Ashok , realizing that their child was growing!!

P.S : This post is dedicated to J for making me publish a story after a really long time.

He n She

Posting my old give my blog a wake up call.

"Hey, you look good in this picture” she told him looking at the mobile.

"Either you have impersonated or your phone is a magic, or quite possibly you really have become handsome" she told, tapping his shoulders.
"Will it make you happy if I told that you have become blind”, he said which led to her laughing like the white waves that roared near them.

She had long curls that touched her face and wore a cream colored salwar which had bold prints. Her hands looked very small compared to the large brown ones that held hers. She was fighting with the breeze in removing the velvety black hair that blocked her lovely face & he enjoyed watching her actions as always.

"It’s unbelievable...”

"Huh can never be quiet at a stretch”, he said... "Ok what’s unbelievable now?!"
"The fact that in a week's time we will be husband & wife, you moron"
"Oh don’t let me think about that I already regret very much "
" should be lucky enough to have girl will marry a jerk like you.. "

Saying these she got up and walked towards the sea.It was slowly becoming dark when they started taking a long stroll together in the wet sand making foot impressions.

Turning her head towards him she said,
"Do you love me?"
"No I hate you.."
"Oh is it !! Then why are you wearing this blue color shirt that I gave you "
"That’s because I got it free.. "
He said that & ran as far as he could.. & shouted,
" You cant catch me with your heavy body lady.. "
She ran after him and they looked like two small kids playing in the water.

It was 7:00 AM in the morning. They were still at the beach but not together anymore.
They were carried away in a stretcher.
Tsunami had struck the beach last night.

Bits n Pieces

I liked the movie Dasavatharam,all right but I don't feel like watching it for the second time. The magic is missing..

After all this Petrol dhamaka,today we managed to fill our car tank on the way to work.Wonder if this can be considered a butterfly effect (courtesy Dasavatharam) a single move (Lorry strike) affecting different walks of life,petrol scare,increase in price rates,vegetable vendors seeing more money..

I have moved to a new project & a new role...Am I liking it..lets see..

We have got a microwave oven at our home & yesterday switched it on to make a mess!!

I'm currently reading the book P.S I Love you for the second time & its been a long time since I read the morning newspaper

I called in sick yesterday & stayed at home.And for a change I was really not well.

"You are back so soon?" asks mom..
"Yeah my wife is sick so I rushed home " replies son
Ahem.. impressed :)

It feels good to be in this blog world again & pen down my thoughts. As I'm writing this I feel that I have lost the habit of writing meaning blogging.Lazy me!!
What have I been doing all this time?Hiding behind the bushes?Searching for Bin Laden?Helping the Bangalore Royal Challengers?
All these days I have been doing nothing of this sort but now when I pen down personal details , I fill up the Wedding anniversary date along with my birthdate,my name precedes with a Mrs instead of Miss & I attend calls telling that I'm J's wife.

So many changes in so little time,isn't that what life is all about? Well,why leave my blog alone.
And so, a brand new blog with a brand new name and yeah I'm back to blogging :)

P.S : Its me , Scribbler
