Hurrah.......... I am back to India.......n i have loads to share..
My journey started on Monday morning at 4, with a lady taxi driver coming to drop me at the airport..making me realise that i had spent an year in a very safe zone..!!
I had to change my flight at Milan, Italy.. The beautiful hills surrounded by old pine trees heavily covered in snow, looked amazing from the top..
The 7 hour stretch from Milan to Delhi was beautifully wrapped by talks with my fellow Indians, discussions about life at foreign land..and what not..)Though i must admit that the untidy Indira Gandhi airport, and the heavy showcase of jewellery and make up by the Indian beauties almost turned me off..(
Ahha...there i saw my brother and my father dying to see the apple of their eye..(me) .....and then my joy knew no bounds.....The 4 hour journey to my hometown in Karnal (Haryana) looked so short n sweet...Since the moment i have landed at my place...i can hardly find any spare time...Meeting my relatives after a long span was so soothing...
I showed all my pics and played all my songs and Bhajans..opened gifts...The excitement was at the peak..Recently realised that my neighbours' toddler kids were fascinated to meet me as well...They were so innocent, i could not help remembering my childhood days..quoting some of their sweet talks:
" Aap humare saath patang udhayoge..Hum aapke ghar bat-ball khelenge to aapke ghar ke sheeshe tut jayenge..)
Mere Papa to itne bade ho gaye, abhi bhi school jate hain.. pata hai kaun se..Mere..)))Mene apne Dost ko ek thapad maara, voh dur jaakar gira..usko hospital lekar gaye hain...***
Mein bade hokar pilot banunga..aisa maharaj ji ne kha tha..!!Aap mere ghar aayoge, please abhi aa jayo..))) "
Oh yes..Today being Maha Shivratri.. i am on fast....May the Great God shower His choicest of blessings on all of us..This week and the coming one, i'm busy with lots of religious ceremonies..
Today we waited in a long queue in the Shiva temple while chanting the holy names in unison..2 days from now, there is Mata Bhagwati Jagran at our place ..and the next week i"ll be visiting Maa Vaishno Devi shrine after so many years..I am too excited...My friends are really angry with me, for i am not able to call them..I really want to talk to them in peace..So Sorry...Dont forget me..i will call you soon in a week or two..)))
With so many activites queued up, i surely have been assigned some tasks by my mother..the ones i like to do the most..cleaning every possible corner of my home and designing invitation cards for the Jagran to be distributed within the colony..I luv to clean my house..and dont want any help from the maid..For if we have made our house dirty, no one else shd be responsible for cleaning it...This leads to a frequent altercation between me n my brother...and we just love them...i missed these fights so much in the last one year..!
Oh Yes...please have a look at the invitation cards designed by me..Many thanks to hindikamal.com for their enriching vocabulary:
