Its Singara Chennai

Yeh Chennai hai mere yaar....
And its not only Idli and Sambhaar!...:D
Well,when you are visiting Chennai for the first time...(or any time) would be intoxicated with the smell of jasmine flowers,food..(you would be surprised at the see,its not only Idli n dosa all the time! :P),the sea breeze,etc etc etc.You can argue that its all available in other places too...but it won't be a registered Chennai product! :D
A city struggling between modernity and modesty(like our India itself in general),a city braving power cuts,a city of brainy kids(?),a city having a multi-culture mixed into one culture,a city slowly opening up,a city slowly going global,a city of movie-star crazy fellows(super-crazy da!),a city slowly inching towards the mainland issues,a city of cricket-crazy guys and girls(super-super-crazy da!),a city of beautiful lyrics,a city of beautiful sounds of music,a city fighting corruption,a city breaking the barriers with care and inviting people from the outer-sphere.....
Wait! Does this sound like any other metro of our country? Well yes it does.Thats attributed to the fact that all the metros are a part of the Incredible India! :) {oh I am so intelligent! :P}
But still....Singara Chennai rocks! :)
Its not a nice place...its an awesome place.Initially,you may feel a bit like where-have-I-come...but later on as you mix with the people,get to know their issues,get to mingle,tell them many things,learn many things from them...then you would understand what I am talking about (coz I myself don't know what I am talking about!)
And oops,I forgot to tell....the language spoken here is Tamil. (In case you got confused!)

P.S.: I guess I haven't done much justice to this place by this post,but be patient,I'll be back again with more words about this magical city! :)

Take care,and have a nice week ahead! :)

Its all about being friends!

My cellphone beeped for the fifth time...and there it was...a message from my Best Friend.
"How are you now?"
No I am not ill presently;I wasn't well yesterday.But,you see,my friend asked me this question 3 times,and to top it all,sent me 2 forwards about friendships and stuffs...for which I was supposed to send a reply.Since I consider myself too intellectual to be replying to silly forwards,I never really respond to her "Tell this about me" or "What you like the most about me".But even after getting such a cold response for something she considers sacred,she still cares.She still messages after a heated arguement,still listens when I have cursed her with all my vocabulary,and she still never gives up when someone else would have got frightened and ran away.
Its like this only for some people,you know,that you can show your anger to,can cry in front of them,can tell your little secrets,fight and still be back together.
They say love is the ultimate thing which involves a great mixture of all emotions-anger,despair,hope,happiness,sadness and so on.I don't think so.It starts from friendship itself.Like you and your "someone special" would have been friends initially,ain't it?
Nope,I ain't SRK fan and I ain't definitely quoting the dialouge from "Kuch Kuch Hota hai" ("Pyaar dosti hai... :D").But still,friendship is pretty much the basis of fact,friendship and love are inseparable.We love our friends,and our love is our best friend!(Phew!)
So I dedicate this little blog of mine to all my friends whom I have truly loved though never told.And 1 special mention to that best friend of mine-you know I never told you how much I care for you,but you should know(sounds cheeky?)
At times we tend to forget to tell our friends how much we care.So leaving behind your bitter-feelings(if any) and ego (again,if any)....just call up or message or just somehow let them know that you are still there for them...before "Someone Special" snatches them away from you! (Heehee)

Take care everyone..Have a nice time with your friends!

The HOSTEL Life!

Welcome home my dear child!
Thats the reaction we get when we reach our homes during holidays.Thats right; yesterday's nuisances become today's heroes of their homes! And by jove,what a time! We rule! We get new stuff that we do need but don't ask for,our favourite dishes are made,we get to watch TV uninterrupted, we get to do anything we want,'coz "We dont get those in hostel !"
Yeah,but the price for this is a bit high(if you aren't enjoying your time in hostel,that is). Like we do feel terribly sad when we are packing our stuffs all over again to return back to hostel....and for those who cry--well,they just hide their tears from their parents...fearing they may start howling! Each time we eat at the hostel mess....the ghar ka khaana pops up in our minds from nowhere. And fills us with nauseating memories that are so hard to let go.
And many other times,we eagerly await going back to hostel.Sometimes 'coz of any fests,at the thought of seeing our respective crushes again,for facing the new sems and the new profs,for meeting up with friends...or just to be doing something other than lieing like an useless piece of furniture at home!

But still,many times we do feel lonely, like we just wish our parents say their advices that we hear them console us when we make any silly mistakes that others' laugh at....that they make us feel special all over again...(Ugh!)
Hey but don't think hostel life is full of miseries and homesickness and blah blahs.There are very helpful seniors(?) too,who help you tide over the homesickness....or sometimes they just bring about a high tide of laughter that your glooms are washed away!
Yep,hostel life rocks! Getting up(late),having fights for the bathroom(optional,if you aren't really feeling too hydrophobic or lazy!),eating breakfast(optional),being late and getting the glares of your profs(not optional,one still gets the glares even if one is on time!) then lunch (no comments),then glares,then the tea,then the dinner,then the time we chat,gossip,laugh,complain,jeer,play music,copy assignments from roomies,write assignment for roomies,make the roomies write assignments for us,complain to each other's parents that their child ain't eating properly,going for walks,getting into trouble,cry(Yeah!),clean shelves(optional),share money,share eatables(Yummy!),share cetras.
Yep....hostel life........ROCKS!!!!
