Moi here🙂 tired and exhausted and a bit earlier than expected but here😀
A question:-Which brainy dude or dudette came up with the idea of arranging weddings in the
Summers sorry ….Indian Summers.
Makes me want to do some bodily harm to someone.
Do you know Luckhnow Summer makes the Delhi one look like a walk in a green shady cool park? Well….I know now😀
The Banaras one is a bit better in comparison.
Have missed you guys so much😦
And the interactions even more😦
And the sheer amount of posts waiting to be read! My GAWD! Dont you guys ever take a blogging break? Or take it easy?😛😛
Or atleast take some pity on this poor soul who has to wade through all those posts?😀
Opened my mailbox a couple of days back when I was here on a stopover and what do I find? Solilo’s post on forever friends..
Life is made of moments like these….
Made my eyes tear up. And like I asked Solilo ,” Do you know how it feels to know that one is missed so much? That one is blessed to have a friend who seems to have known you forever? As if maybe , just maybe , you had bumped into each other at that busy market last week or last year or maybe when we were kids?
And like Solilo wrote,” It seems we have known each other for years; jumped in the mud puddles together, played with the same toys, shared giggles about same boys while tying each other’s pigtails.”
I know just what you mean Solilo….I do….Coz the connection is so darn eerie…isnt it?
Your post overwhelmed me and made me feel blessed…
I am blessed to have found you here🙂
It happens so very rarely ..friendships like these that I know we are one of the lucky few🙂
It delighted with its comment box too :D…The feeling’s incomparable…I am touched beyond words..
Thank you for all the words that so many friends shared too on your post…
Will be back to comment on that post :)
Which also reminds me ….just how many of you thought I was Solilo’s other half?😀 or that she was mine?😀
Too desperate to make Dostana Two eh?😆
And for some smartie commentors on that post…😀
Run!!I am here !😀 *evil laugh*
But seriously thank you to all my friends who have shared on Solilo’s post…thank you…its a whole range of feelings which would require a separate post.. 😀
*people dropping like flies at the mention of some err…long posts *😆
Have inserted the whole gallery coz the pics were too cumbersome to upload😀
The pictures are of an ancestral haveli near Varanasi…..the temple is one of the many that dot this village….every newly wed couple has to go to the ancestral village to seek the blessings of the various gods and goddesses…
The famous Markandey Temple is situated in this village too🙂
the pictures of the river are of the river Ganga…where the couple is rowed by boat to the middle where they perform a puja to seek the blessings of the river Goddess…
The pictures where you can see the river through the trees…has been taken from the terrace of the haveli..Ganga is visible from the house…
The little fourlegged creature in one of the pics is my cousin’s darling and reminded me of my own fourlegged baby back here in Delhi…
Everything was fine except for the road journey of two hours from Benaras to the village…the journey is too long…
Here are the pics…
I know I also have to get around to reading all your posts not to mention answer the comments on mine🙂 *sigh* But I am happy…with some rest I will be back to doing some serious blog hopping😀
OG ..The updatessu😀
Half the time I have no idea what I am saying or what you are saying :D😛
