Best Laid Plans.

This weekend I was in Mumbai. Those who thought that I should have called them, guys I was so busy! Wish I can say that. I was there for the party thrown in the honor of the latest member of my family. For more read this!! It was a single day affair but I was there for 4 days. Instead of giving these tid bits let start from the top, including my ticket booking to landing at Bangalore.

I planned to leave Bangalore on Thursday as part was slated for Friday. So the ticket was booked for Spicejet onwards and return on Sunday by Indigo courtesy travelocity.co.in (Trust me they give one of the best fare online). Suddenly one fine day my jiju (brother in law) called and said the ticket by kingfisher is available for 1800 INR go ahead and buy. There goes 1750 INR towards cancelling the ticket booked by Spicejet and Indigo. So that was the ticketing part.

On Thursday I was off to Mumbai. Nothing great about it but if you find your mom, dad, jiju and brother waiting at the airport is worth mentioning. Well they arrived 20 minutes before me from my native. J. After packing ourselves in the car we are off to see the boy-who-shares-his-birthday-with-me in short my nephewJ.

He is really sweet much more than me. (Trust me again) those who don’t trust me then tell me why he got all the kisses and I got none? Pics, coming soon, most probably by this weekend. The next two days were hectic, wrapping gifts which my mom brought from native and I took from Bangalore, attending ceremonies, parties and what not. I met some of my relatives whom I last met when my sister got married 3 years back and some even much more time later.

Saturday was the good bye day. Mom and dad left for native. My brother went to office. So there I was left alone at with my jiju. I thought lets go jiju’s office and see how it looks like. Later that day played a new board game with my sister, jiju, jiju’s sisters and jiju’s jiju. The game was called LIFE. What a name for game where you are married off, made to buy house, have kids and at last die with the desire to become a millionaire tycoon. After losing badly in the game of LIFE we were off to watch the movie “Hangover. ” Yeah, a drunkard like me can only go for a movie like that. A slapstick comedy should be seen by without children supervision.

Sunday came and my jiju took me for a shopping spree. I am still a Shopaholic (Shopping + Drinking). While driving from one shop to another I found a bottle of “Absolute” in jiju car. Before you say what a drunkard let me tell you I just had 2 pegs, we were to have lunch with my sister and jiju’s sisters. Here is the list of the things we shopped for – Shirts and Trousers from Louis Philippe, Perfumes from UCB and Dunhill, Mobiles from Nokia and Samsung. That was it and it was the time for me to head back. I got a SMS stating my ticket on kingfisher is upgraded to first class (Tip. If you are flying kingfisher, try http://optiontown.com. ). It is a good way to fly first class without paying bomb for.

Here is the pic of the Hriday. That’s the name given to my nephew.

Who Do I Blame

Thursday was one of the bad hair day for me. Nah it was not my hairs. I dont have any of them to have a bad hair day with hairs.

It was something more grave. I had given my cloths to the¬† washer man on Monday to iron them but till Wednesday he wasn’t done. So i had to take out my lone clean trouser. A Scullers Trouser which was bought Sunday and got on Wednesday after alteration. (The details here are worth remembering for future reference ūüôā )

So i donned in a brand new cloths leave for office. Hailed a auto with whom had a discussion (read had to haggle)  about the charges. Reached safely to office. and while getting down i heard a faint sound. As i turn around i find a piece of my trouser is left on the auto.  As i turn around everyone has a Big-Fat-Grin except Me. Now i had just 2 options

First Go back home and change

Two Stay at office with a extra hole on my back side. That’s what my colleagues called it when I reached office.

The first option was rejected outright. For I dont have anything washed and ironed at home. Second I was already 30 minutes late for office. So it was Out-Shirt (untucked). It was so obivios that half of my office knew what i been through.

It was so obivious that when I was bent down to work on one my colleagues system. My PM comes from behind and says “Santosh don’t bend too much people may take Advantage.”

Now those who read this let me know who should i blame?

The washerman, who was late in ironing my cloths.

The auto guy for not keeping his nails in in control.

The trouser manufactrer (Scullers) for not using strong cloth.

My own compnay who askes every employee to wear formals from monday to thrusday.

Winner all the way

This post is dedicated to the loser, like me, all round the globe. Its just to show them that they can win if they try really hard. I have been given my first blogging award by Arshat Editor-in-Chief TPI.

Here we go

  1. I am at present¬†Masquerading as one of the person I thought that I am done with. ¬†I re-registered this person’s ¬†mail id which was deleted¬†
  2. I had two so called GF’s and presently both of them don’t even care that I exist let alone alive. Incidently both of them are out of india at present one in England with Hubby and second in Canada.
  3. The last time I traveled 2nd class sleeper in train I had to pay fine for not having a valid ticket. 
  4. My Present obssesion is tele series F.R.I.E.N.D.S. I am downloading them like crazy
  5. During a company interview I was asked “why i got less marks in engineering and 12?” I told “I never got less marks I got more marks during my 10th Exams!” Belive it or not i was selected.
  6. I saw my first porn when I was in class 8. It was one of the advantages of going a boarding school. and yeah the room had some 30+ guys watching the movie with me.
  7. My fav teacher during school days was the librarian because she never said anything when I bunked class. Not library classes but the regular classes and went to hide (hang) out in library.
  8. ¬†I used to write a diary called “Myself.” It was during my school days, ¬†when i was going through some rough patches. Six year down the line I still have that notebook. Its just one note book but its was my feeling for myself.¬†
  9. At one time I was watch freak and I changed them at of the rate of one per year. Then came mobile phone and they had the same life time. At present its my jobs which I am changing more or less at 1 per year.

Note to Arshat I hope that I was able to keep up your¬†testerone¬†level high. because we engineer get High on either Words or Wine ūüôā

Now come the hardest part giving away to people. There are loads of them but 

I will gove two quotes instead of one. 

If two past lovers remain friends, it’s either they are still in love.. or they never were…  РUnknown

 

Love is touch, A kiss, a glance that can make any day feel like the first day of spring.. ¬†–Unknown

P.S. ->I got these quote during my school days and I love them so much that I still remember them.

Going Offline

I wont be available for next few days but this site will be available. I am off to my native if you any one wants to contect me just call me or leave a SMS on my number. Please if you planning to mail or ping me on messenger. I wont be able to reply as i will away from the internet. So see you guy till than

BIAL

For those who don’t know what does the above word means than please come to Bangalore by an aeroplane and you will hit on the face by the new bug taken over the city. Confusing!! It’s was the biggest news after the Karnatka Elections, Metro, Road Jam, Night Life (which ends at 11PM sharp).

I am talking about the new Bangaluru International Airport Limited. The airport was scheduled to be kick off on 29th of march but took its flight on 24th of may, full 2 month after the schedule. It was not because that there were some delay in completing the project but it was the breaucacy which marred the inaugration of the airport.

I was there at the airport on 25th may. The second day after the BIAL was officiallly inaugrated and the place was buzzing with people. Here are some of the obsevations i had when i was standing outside the great entrance door. (i am yet to pass throught them..)

  1. There is lots of empty space to stand and wait for the people. At the old airport people had to stand in rain/sun while waiting for the people they have come to receive
  2. You can actually have something to eat as there are few shops just outside the airport. including subway, baskin robins, katti zone and some chat shop. (Price just to pinch youa bit. Nothing much)
  3. They have forgotten sitting for peoplestanding outside.
  4. Cleaing would be an issue they have got these huge cleaing cart but the waste been was bubbling with the litter. They must have some more waste bins.
  5. This was something i never saw at any airport (or may have not noticed). They have got a weighing machine installed just outside departure gate. In case you are travelling over weight you can always do some last minute changes. Kudos for thinking about this.
  6. AC VOLVO buses from the airport to some major points in the city.
  7. No autos allowed. So no more nuicence of fighting with autowala’s. The charge the same as the taxi.

Rest when I visit the airport from inside. which will be soon as i am leaving for my native to meet my parents and eat some mangos and leechi (lyche) on 6th and will be back on 15th night so no blogs till that time.

P.S. -> Will try to post from my native if the dear BSNL dial up allowed me to do the same. ūüôā
