First the random Thoughts:
- Hairband helps me focus
- Will I be able to complete my course before the test.
- Proud of my lil sister who started a new phase of her life yesterday. She joined a new company.
- Richard Feynman was so cute-looking in his twenties! The one in the center..
Now my main story, my last few days in Delhi:
Now that my random thoughts are out of my way I want to talk about how much fun I had when my friends were over. We are all five years matured version of ourselves from when we first met, and now we talk about real issues and we have real problems to tackle. But I love the fact that somethings never change like poking fun at others, talking about movies and songs, thinking about what our next stage in life has in store for us, reminiscing good old times, and being our free selves in front of each other.
This times getting together started with getting ready for one of our best friend’s engagement. I got curls done in my hair (which I couldn’t get enough of!) and wore my prettiest anarkali suit (which I got to lift to walk fast). My friend looked like a princess from a fairy tale with her peach dress flowing and lovely curls and long lashes. I truly had an awesome time dancing and being a part of such a joyous occasion.
From next day onwards we did proper hanging out at all the happening spots in Delhi. It was fun taking my friends from hyd and Mumbai and showing off my city. I am sure by the end of it they got used to yo yo honey singh, lovely chuski, being loud, broad roads and all the Delhi things we delhites take for granted. Then we also did a road trip to Taj Mahal in Agra which can be a separate story in itself. While going we made the usual 4 hour journey a 6 hour one because we took two good breaks, first at a dhaba and then for a coffee, and then also got caught for skipping a red light by the police.
Taj Mahal was first time experience for all my friends and they really enjoyed every bit of it (except the bit where the guide made us do a round of Taj Mahal before making us enter inside). Our guide was like our personal photographer – making us pose in every spot, in all these poses which was damn funny. But the fact is Taj Mahal makes you think about your loved ones. How if a person could be that much in love to spend 22 years, like most of his life time in building a shrine for his loved one then we should spend at least 22 secs everyday thinking about our own loved ones.
Taj Mahal sight-seeing fun aside, road trip was fun! We had good 9-10 hours with each other to talk our hearts out and discuss everything including scope of banking in America, derivatives, loans to happenings in our personal life, life in India and abroad, marriages, friends, everything. It was a really good way to just sit and talk and soak in the nice view of large fields on both sides and we moving on our road.
They say all good things come to an end, this one also seemed to end too soon. I was the one who had to one by one drop everyone at airport and station and get left behind. Even though that day I was so tired to think of anything, it hit me the next day that I was back to my routine life, getting pending things done and running around to get the chores done.
So till next time we all meet again (seems will only be few years later), I’ll try to remember all the good moments including teasing Prat, getting pics clicked with Sahi, Nish’s party, talking about Chicago bits with Deev and all the fun, food, shopping, laughter, gifts which made it all the more awesome!
