Trip Back Home

August 9th 2006 was the day I might say I waited a bit long might be because I spent around 2 months alone at delhi… or might be I was a bit home sick this time…. I wanted to meet my family in b’lore.. i got up very early on 9th and left for the flight to Bangalore… Well when I landed in b’lore my father tried to play a prank with me but well was not smart enough…. I was very happy this time meeting all my family members at home it was pretty long time…since we all met together…

The good thing of this trip was…papa took off a week’s break from his office so that we all can stayed together… so we enjoyed a lot together… it was good moments…

We all went out together for lunch on mummy’s birthday…. It was one of those times were in I got good time for my family ….we did lots of shopping… for everyone….

Few of the best part of this trip was I met my childhood friends vidya and bhargavi… I went to their home … were in we spoke for some time and then we went on a long walk… near her house…. All together it was recollecting my old days….

But the best part of the trip was my ride to tumkur…on my bike pulsar.. Well as soon as I landed in Bangalore the best thing I felt was the weather… this is one thing I definitely missed in delhi… or in any other part of India… so as soon as I landed in Bangalore the first thing that came to my mind was I would be going to tumkur by bike…

Well I started to tumkur around 3.30pm. Tumkur is around 60-70 km from Bangalore. This is the place where we have a house and also this is the place where in I did my graduation… so I know in and out of this town. Even though I started in the afternoon the weather was very cloudy, supported by cool breeze it was an ideal weather to go on long ride…. Its one of those seasons… down south where in you would enjoy ur long rides to the core if it does not rain…..

Well the new laid roads of the quadrilateral project was best suited for zooming out in my bike…. Broad and empty roads… teased me at my speed of around 100kmph.. well I felt the need of a 1000cc bike ….. tat was the kind of roads….. Both sides of road were well covered with green patches because of rains around this part of the world during this season….. these green patches are one dam good view for a person whoz living in a cosmopolitan city…

It took me around 40min to 1 hr to reach my aunts place in tumkur.. It was a surprise visit for them…. Well the evening in front of my home where I spent my childhood was very pleasant… I remembered those days when I used to run to home from my school drop my bags and then run to play cricket in the field opposite to my house…. Enter those thick green mango orchard.. and chased away by the mali…. Visit the “venkateshwara temple” in the evening … with my old buddy ravi sharma… lots and lots of stuffs passed through my mind in a flash of a second…

Its all in the game of time…. We were kids when I saw all those young men … now they have grown old… and we are fastly replacing them…. And the babies with whom we played…. Are enjoying their college life…. All together it was gr8 to think for a moment what is life… and get a bit philosophical….

Well evening I made it a point to visit the temple around which I have lots of belief attached… was pleased to meet my god… an encounter after long long time… also went for a marriage reception of a very close friend of mine… for which I had come all the way… met the couple and wished them after which I had a good time with my uncle and aunt… before sleep….

I woke up the next day very early and was very pleased by the pleasant weather outside my house…. Had a small photo session after which I met my age old friend ravi sharma…. Was very very happy to meet him after sooo long years…. We sat and discussed for few hours what we are and where we are going towards in life….. whats our aim in life and lots of stuffs like that…. I wanted to put few points to him.. and I hope I was a bit successful in doing that also I belive…. After which I need to start back to Bangalore… as it was getting cloudy and I did not want to take the risk of getting struck in the rain….

On the way back I stoped at few palces and took some snaps in my camera but lot were captured only though my eyes it was very painful to stop my bike when I was enjoying the speed…. I reached home safely by around 4.30pm.

I had to leave to delhi the next day…. But all in all this time I got to know lot about whats family and understood few of the values of life for which we need to sacrifice few other stuffs in life…….
