Crazy Week

Last week was crazy :) Had lots of fun at home.. went out for lunch on sunday and ended up with spending whole evening out.. Mom went crazy too, she was expecting me back by 4pm and i entered my home quite late.. She wanted to catch up with me i guess.. She was angry at how could i go out and not spend time with her, especially since i am home for such a short time.. She is so sweet really :)
Monday was everyone's holiday (2nd oct) so started the day with yummy food, bread pakoras and aloo ki tokri.. Went out to watch the dussehra celebrations in the evening.. And i still cant believe myself that i stood on a 4 feet high allevation around flowers n plants, to watch the show.. :) There wasnt much room for me to stand with many people already standing there.. still i managed somehow and din fell.. :) that was crazy of me.. :D vaise people did crazier things.. like climbing a tree and sitting there.. And bringing some high chairs from their homes.. Some people carried their children on their shoulders to let them view everything..
Next day i went on shopping..again.. And u know i was shopping till 1:40 pm, arrived back home at 2:02p.m.. ate lunch and packed some stuff i bought into my bags by around 2:15pm.. and was at ISBT by 2:37 to catch a 2:40 bus.. :D thankfully a frens and his fren were accompanying too.. So i did actually caught the bus.. They chatted non-stop and fought like children.. It was nice to see them do that.. Heard a lot of good songs on their phones.. Slept at some point of time and i hope din bothered the fren's fren much, with my head on his shoulders while i was soundly asleep :D
After coming back, some days went in trying to find a proxy (which sometimes works, sometimes dont).. no blogspot working at my insti.. no orkut working too.. blogger dashboard opens though :).. i can still read all your blogs thru feedblitz, though cant comment on them..
Yesterday was my last test before diwali and today i have a project demo.. uske baad total aish.. :)

For the first time in my life i lived in terror.. Not from terrorists but from wasps .. These are called yellow jackets/ tattiya / barraiya too.. They had built a hive in front of my room and the person who came to take it off just banged it witha stick and left.. and the day after was horrible.. they stung at people passing from the corridor and attacked them literally.. A whole bunch would stick to the leg and sting.. Four of my friends got the sting.. They were so angry about their homes.. and i kept myself locked in my room :( others could go to their rooms from another corridor but for me, whichever way i took, they remained always in front of my room.. that stupid person did so wrong by hitting their hive.. atleast they were peaceful before that.. anyways some people from pest control came and sprayed some chemical and took the hive away.. till next 2 days those wasps circulated in the corridor probably looking for their lost home.. i felt a bit sad for them.. but then we ve to see our safety too..


Yesterday i came to delhi by bus and in front of my seat were my swimming instructors' brother and his family.. His children were absolutely adorable.. and i thought if i were to have kids they a\shd be like them :D For the first time i met a 10 month old baby who didnt scream , cry, and make their parents journey hell by numerous ways.. She was such an active baby and at the same time not violent types :D.. generally babies cry to go back to parents or someone they know.. she came to me and was their for about half an hour, playing with my earrings, making lots of funny noises, trying to sleep in my arms and smiling a LOT.. And her 6 yr old brother was a charmer.. I did counting with him.. to count 4+4 he had to use his fingers and after lots of thought process he came up with answer as 8!! I taught him some tricks to form birds from hands.. chidiya udana :) he took away a lot of coins from me and he operated mobile phone like i never could.. I was so surprised to see a him play with the phone like that.. he even knew how to click photographs from my cell, even though his father's model was a different one.. i wonder if children these days come to this world after learning everything.. they are so at ease with the technology... the next generation is a lot smarterthan us :)


Yestarday night i went out with my family to watch ramlila.. i went to pitampura and i realised how crowded delhi is.. It took us abt half an hour to cross a strech of abt 1.5 kms.. and the crowd in ramlila ground was mind blowing.. so we didnot went to watch ramlila, instead we went to the food stalls and enjoyed the mela.. it was a sea of people.. to get food from stall to where my family stood, i took about 5 mins and atleast 20 excuse me's.. Though i hated how people threw stuff on ground like that, when there are dustbins placed avery 10 steps, i just loved the spirit and activeness of people around.. And i missed Delhi.. Everything & everyone keeps moving here, at a fast pace.. Though i love quite of my campus too but thats not what i really enjoy.. observing poeple, looking at how they all work even in the worst conditions is a marvel in itself.. not many people appreciate crowdy places.. i dunno why but i do.. i like to be in places where some activity goes on.. :) And did i forgot to mention the gorgeous food i ate yesterdat.. :D I so so so love the chatpata and masaledaar food (spicy food).. and especially the kulfi faluda :) ..


And since some time i have been chatting with a fellow blogger and something he told me yesterday kept me into some introspection.. He said, "Our thoughts dont agree much on so much we talk about..And you usually reply with more questions or laughter, i dont know how to reply to that and i feel a little uncomfortable talking to you".. These are not the exact words, but the meaning was this only.. About agreeing thoughts i know, two people tend to have some disagreements and we dont know each other much to really know we agree a lot or disagree a lot.. And about asking questions, well i know i ask a lot of questions..but never knew this could be taken as something uncomfortable.. And i was really surprised to hear the same thing about laughter.. i laugh a lot and i amusually genuinely amused when i laugh :) or i am genuinely happy :) About asking questions i think i can do something but dun think can do anything about my laughs.. :) i am happy and i reflect that.. so thats that :)
