rains......

it rained...it rained n it rained...it rained cats n dogs....n yea...raindrops kept falling on my head....it poured directly on2 my head ..whn i was eatin my food in the dining hall..yup the leak in the roof has shown up again thanx to its obvious partner in crime the rains...y blame the rains...blame the repair ppl who didint have time 2 fix it inspite of a complaint some 1 n a half months ago....

y blame thm?i guess noboby thought it wud ever rain here today..we r 600 mm short of rains this month...this isnt the place i had heard abt a lott b4 i came..the place where it rains a lot seems to have turned to a place where it occasionally rains ...

no complainin bt....i love rains...i dnt care if my roof leaks in the dining hall...atleast it is rainin...

i love the fresh smell of the earth when it rains....i love the sound of raindrops tricklin down the earth...

n rains reminds me of a time whn i was dreamy n carefree(which i m still,bt thn it was 2 a much higher level)...it reminds me of all the good times in the past n all the wonderful ppl i had known..it reminds me of the childhood days whn we used to dance in the rain...it reminds me of the numerous bike rides i had in the rain...tht umpteen walks in the rain,just 4 the fun of it...it reminds me of the wonderful time i had wid my loved ones ..it also reminds me of a passion n a feelin which is close 2 my heart bt is still very unexplainable...

rains again remind me of november rain...my favourite song...n smbody whose favourite line will be.."n nothing lasts 4 ever..even the cold november rain"....n tht cold november rain being me

coming bac .......

rains had always held sweet n special memories for me....be it the cold and mysterious november rain...or the cool gush of summer rains....

they have never failed to lose their charm...nor will they ever ....

my bengali diaries-2

the bandh in darjeeling has almost made us immobile...strict orders are issued as not to go up the hills...which leaves us with no odar option thn jus roam around the city n its only mall..which we like have done a hundred of times...gorkhland strike is makin us ppl who wana go to darjeelin so tht we cud view the newly released pics at INOX(the only one of its kind for a very long distance) suffer...in these parts of bengal there are more gorkha ppl thn true blue bengalis......hope the issue gets settled soon and wht shud be done will b done by whomsoever concerned...@least 4 the sake of 'beautiful' darjeeling...

n down the hills ,in the foothills where we live,the weather is gettng horrible n horrible day by day...blame it on global warming(which nowadays everybody blames upon),a place which was supposed to get continuous rainfall for 2 weeks,is jus been blessed by the sight of rainclouds,which always teases us n never pours down..while the driest desert in chile is receiving snow @ dis time of the year...

seriously the gods must be crazy....or are we jus bearing the brunt of the craziness we have done in the past n is still doin???

to be continued......

The 100th one...

My 100th post...took a long time to reach 100 considering the rate at which i was blogging 2 months back....

well more of my doodles...












My Bengali Diaries.....

its been 2 months n more since i m in a new place...the land of tagore,sandhesh,devdas n the hoogly...also the land of communalism n frequent "cholbena" slogans...

good things about this place
-a hell lot of sweets ,tht too of umpteen varities....
-shoppers paradise

bad things
-humoungous insects
-a very very humid weather which will make u feel sticky inside out....
-horrible traffic
-a NH which looks like a street in chandini chowk

well i m used to all these in the past 2 months...change n adaptation are the main parts of human life...tht i have realised within the past one year...n your life is what you create....


something which i carry over from my days of vacationing back home are late nights..the lack of a proper internet connection forced me to turn to tv and to watchiing 'FRIENDS'..n eventually bcoming an absolute FRIEND fanatic....n i went on to buy the full 10 seasons of FRIENDS..well another one item to my list of precious things....

the one thing that put me in2 fix in my initial days over here was the language ,not xcatly the language bt the diction..where there is only 'o' in place of many letters, often put me in2 trouble...like the odar day when i got confused as wht a 'mog' is:whn it was actually a "mug"..n which eventually lead a layman to throw astonishin looks at me as if wht a person who doesnt even kno what a 'mog' is...
the language absurdities still continue..hope i will catch up one day.....


to be contd:
