Changing Nest!!

Tomorrow i am shifting to a new place. I would now be sharing a flat with an office coalleague of mine. I have stayed in this PG for almost 2 years now, I came here on June 19, 2007...:). I am neck deep in office work for past few days; and hence had no time to actually ponder on the 2 long years spent at this place.....but if if someone asks me the one thing i have learnt here..that would be how to manage staying ALONE; ek dum akele types...cook for your own, share the room with some one you only know the name/ company of, and have phone/ net as the only means to talk with human beings after office hrs and on weekends....and what i feel today is that its not that bad always....(given that you know its temporary...:)). But i can clearly remember many lonely enjoyable moments in this PG. Come back from office, play your favourite music...cook a full meal..(like four times a week and an elaborate meal on Saturadays)..and retire to bed by 11 with a book (omni-presence in virtual world need not be mentioned...:P)...On holidays and some weekends...just lie down on bed un disturbed to finish some good book..or watch a nice movie....and make plans for evening..:).....Make pakodas for self on a rainy evening...and invite friends over...:)...now that i have started writing i find that this post needs more time to be inclusive of all the thoughts going on in my mind.....and since its already half past 3 in the mrning....i guess...high time i sleep....I'll miss this place for sure but....!!

Have had an awful day at work…yes..i went to office on a Sat also, had to sit on a really uncomfortable chair and survive on dip-tea (that sounds like Deepti..he he he..:)).

One Fine Day...

One fine day in December 2008, I decided to watch Dostana. I generally use to go for movies on weekends, pay 200-250 bucks even if I get the uncomfortable front row to sit. I use to think ki theek hai yaar…500 bucks a month for movies is not too much..:). Though I had at times even heard some friends of mine…(and that includes few who are considered to have “royal” habits amongst us), saying, that weekend tickets are too expensive; its better to go either on weekdays or Sat/ Sun morning show…I however, never paid any attention to that. But this time I decided that I’ll save money; and go for Sat morning 10 AM show. “Dostana” was a new release and I had not yet seen it. No friends were ready to give company as most of them had already seen it or were busy somewhere else. So I decided to watch the movie alone, for the first time in my life. The thrill factor associated with the whole situation had increased considerably, as I was going to watch it alone (that makes me so self dependent, Yo!!, I don’t need anybody for watching a movie now..i can go all alone…:); and I’ll be paying half of what I pay usually (aha..100 bucks saved…:). After having taken the super bold decision of watching a movie on a “weekend morning”; one fine Friday evening; I checked the tickets online…almost whole theatre was empty; kool (why get tickets booked in advance then..i’ll buy in the theatre itself…:)..so my brain did some teeny weenie time calculation; I shall get up at quarter to 9; considering that theatre is just 15 min by auto…..will leave from home at 9 and watch the morning show..:))…all set!!. Subah 9 baje uthe…tickets check kiye..and discovered that 0 tickets are available….koi na..i said to myself..at least I managed to wake up at time..that means the plan is executable…still Sunday is there..i’ll go tomorrow…is what I decided..and went to sleep again.
Saturday evening I got the tickets booked for Sun morning. One milestone achieved; now at least I have tickets..:) But honi ko kuch aur hi manzoor that…Sat night I was awake till 5 in the morning finishing some office work; Morning at 9’ clock I tried my best to wake up; but found it impossible to even surgically remove myself from bed….its just a matter of 100 bucks…jaane de yaar….next weekend…:)
Now the thrill of watching Dostana at half of what I usually pay was gone; thrill factor reduced to ½. But the tempo to watch a movie alone was still there..:).
So the next weekend, planning was a bit more advance and thought after. I booked tickets on Saturday evening for two shows on Monday (Dostana and another more fortunate movie on which I had decided to spend full 200 Rs..:D; this one was to be watched with a friend and hence carried “0” thrill quotient..:P). Dostana was booked 10 Am show and afternoon show for the other one. After learning from my last week’s experience I even slept on time (that’s like 2 AM..:P). Now, the proud me wakes up at sharp 9 on a Sunday morning all set to rock INOX with her benign presence!!. Got all dressed up and reached INOX on time….happy and gay I reached the top floor of the mall….and stood in the queue for collecting the tickets of this Karan Johar production which had managed to beat the lazy devil inside me!!
5 minutes in the queue and my turn comes to collect the tickets; I happily tell the reference number saved in my mobile to the guy standing on the other side of the window. Around 30 seconds of his searching for my ticket and I see signs of un surety on his face..:O. Then he picked out one ticket and smilingly told me..”Madam, this ticket is of Wednesday 10 AM show”..:). Ahem Ahem…Ok..i said…”Give me one ticket for today’s show” was my next sentence. I collected my ticket, came out of the queue and just stood there for a moment smiling …:). The thrill had actually become an adventure..i had paid 300 bucks for a movie I wanted to watch for 100 bucks…:)…Koi na…the other half was still intact..i was still watching the movie alone..:D..

I mite have to put a nite out today for office work..:(. I am shikaar of Project Mismanagement by my seniors in office. I am dying to write a post on my Badrinath trip, but this crazy schedule is taking the better off me...
But now that I have started writing, will put down few arbit lines..:)
I would be attending a friend's wedding in Chennai this weekend, a Tamil wedding..:). After 2 long years i would be visiting Chennai, and campus too!. A dear friend S called up from Chennai today, laughed a good 20 minutes on phone and made all plans for the two days..:). Looking forward to a fun filled trip..!!.
Cheers to Chennai!!
Aah and missed a very imp thing...June 10, 2009, exactly 1 year ago, last year, my hand bag was snatched in front of my house..:(. My hand was on sling for a good one month, and I was at home for four weeks, though a bit painful, it was a four weeks paid holiday at home..:). Ah, might sound weird but i really enjoyed that "Doing Nothing" phase. Read books, utilized you tube, ate like crazy, and slept...:). ....
Ab gudnite rahega..will take a shrt nap and then wake up again, to finish wrk..
