I was off for few days in month of june...As I decided to spend my complete time with my mom n dad..so I switched off my mobile...and left my internet connective gears here in Varanasi only..As usual the trip to home is a wonderful experience and this time when I detached myself from the external world including the idiot box..I understood..how beautifully woven the relationship between parents and their kid is..as most of the time I spent gossiping with mom in kitchen and going in field trips with my dad..
The journey to home was a complete mess as my train was 5 hours late in varanasi itself and reached Howrah 10 hours late...anf from there I had a 4 hours ride more to home..so it actually ruined a complete day of mine..and the ruining of one day during vacation.. pains a lot..coz I had saved each and every day of my 30 days grant of leave very carefully...even wen my hand was fractured..I dint missed any class and wen my leg was fractured I just took two days leave from department..so that I can have a wonderful and long holiday in home later rather sitting in pain in hostel doing nothing...
As soon as I reached home..the monsoon got in full bloom..I loved each and everyday more than any other day coz as we reside in dock township near the sea, it was raining there cats n dogs... and what can one man ever desire more.. if he is safe in home away from all the workloads..with his head on mom's lap .... gorging on the spicy pakodes while watching the raining clouds... waiting for the dad to come home in his jeep and running to him with the umbrella coz his sweet dad always manages to leave that wen it requires the most...then eating hot Khichdi flavored with desi ghee with Beguni bhaja, fish fries, Papads and the sweet tomato chutney.
A day later me and my dad visited a nearby bonsai plantation which I never thot wud be so beautiful with loads of fruits jus waiting for my hands to reach to them and the big fishing pond with ducks and swans..and I actually ended up fishing as the owner was all prepared with all the gears coz my dad had priorly informed him of my visit..though my luck was not that good..I did caught a fish..and I was so excited..it reminded me of 'Cast Away' only thing different was the Tom Hanks actually had no gears there :P..then we went to steamer ride to a nearby INS war vessel who was there for refueling but didn't docked on the dock coz of security reasons..since dad and I both had a defense clearance of quite an upper order..we were allowed entry to the magnanimous destroyer...and it was an awesome first of a time event for me...I was thrilled beyond the imagination...
As it was the month of my mom dad's anniversary..I planned an all expenses paid trip to a nearby sea beach named Digha..the detail of which I will give you in my next post..
Till then take care..
love n carez
