Wandering thoughts!

Wooohhoooo!! I'm back.. Thanks for all the wishes and blessings you people sent me. I'm finally back with all those wonderful memories. You can read about the trekking experience in my other blog or simply click here.

Some random lines came across my mind while I was traveling in the train. I have written it here:

She was sitting there on the seat from past one hour. Everyone is beside her yet she felt there is nobody with her. The cold breeze blew the hair on to her face. She wanted to shut down the window as she was uncomfortable with the cold but now she felt like experiencing it. she cuddled with herself and her pains. The train kept on moving and her thoughts went on wandering when suddenly she felt the darkness. She didn't realize it was the tunnel, she thought it was darkness of her life that comes every now and then whenever she is happy. Tears rolled down on her cheeks but the smile on her face was still alive.

Oooops! What did I write? Wrote it in a fiction way but I didn't understand what I wrote. :P
So please don't throw tomatoes on me for this.. :)

P.S: Now, when I'm back I feel something weird. I guess I lost the way of leading life or may be I dont know why i'm living. Is this because of silence which comes after the happiness?? Or something else?

I'm away!

Not yet, ppl! but in just another few hours I will be traveling outside my present place..
It has been quite a long time that I didn't travel outside Bangalore.. Life is getting bit boring, more hectic, sometimes fun and most of the times scary..

Few months back, we had planned for this trek and at last the day has come when we are setting off! We all are going to Dudhsagar, which is at the border of Goa and Karnataka for a two day trek! You can read more about this place, here. The best time to enjoy going to this place would be in the monsoon. Last year, in the same month of August we had all gone to the same place and it was really the best trek we had so far. It was adventurous and we had experienced some dangerous times out there. After a lot of discussions and conversations, we thought of re-visiting the place.
And here i'm all set to move tonight!

I will be leaving from here tonight i,e Friday 14th of August from Bangalore and will be back on Monday morning! I'm all excited (this happens whenever I travel)
but but i'm sad about something.. one of my friend who was supposed to come along with me isn't coming. His parents are not allowing due to the on going news "swine flu".
I know its risky traveling now but can we sit at home not enjoying what we were supposed to?
I don't want to do that. You all might think i'm taking risk. I too feel the same but canceling the trek will surely make me very sad which I don't want it to happen. I spoke to my parents about this and I did not convince them at all. They understood what I wanted to convey them and they asked me to take care of myself more than usual. :-) So it was an easy go. I just need to take extra care this time (i know nothing is in our hands) but still..

Anyways, I'm all set to go! Hoping to enjoy the fullest and I will be back with the update on this by next week. We will be celebrating Independence day this time in the forest on the track. It would be different from usual. I wont be able to hear lovely songs for the special day but I guess it will be good.

P.S:I'm adding here few pictures of the falls that we had taken last year.

This is how the falls look from few kms far..

This picture was taken when we were right next to the falls standing on the railway track. It was like as if it was raining heavily though it was not at all raining that time. :)

The bridge crossing the falls.. and the morning view of it! completely filled with drops falling out from the falls..

P.P.S: i'm still in the evergreen fresh memory of it, so I attached the photos here. :)
P.P.P.S: If you need any information about this trek or the falls, let me know.

Enjoy your weekend!

The Episode runs!!

Ehh? What is friendship day? Enjoy and celebrate being friends? Oh, I didnt knew this!

Self prepare a friendship band, tie to all my friends! I wanna prove that I'm their friend and I like to see the band what I make for them tied on their hands. Oh yeah, I expect my friends tie it to me too! I am their friend, ain't I?

I will tie it only to my best friends! No no, she is not my close friend. I will tie only to the people who are close to me and who will in return tie it to me..

Hey, its friendship day celebration. Lets all wear yellow color dresses and enjoy freaking out. How about a movie? Cool.. Lets all have fun! Its our day to enjoy together.

Hey, Yeh, I'm coming! Yes for sure.. I have put leave for two days and I will be there on that day. We will go out and have lunch together and may be we can watch some movie if not, go to beach and enjoy! After all, its our day to enjoy. Lets rock!

Hmmm?? Oh is it? Coming sunday? I want to come but I will not be able to make time and come there. I miss you all a lot and if you all would have been here, it would have been so much fun. We could have enjoyed our day! I guess, this time I have to spend friendship day all alone here!

Friends are special, they walk with us in the journey of life. Some take other route and go away and some stay with us. Still they all are my friends. I enjoy their company. I enjoy talking to them. I like to spend time with them. When I have something to share I have with them around me. When I feel like crying, I have them near by me. When I want to laugh out loudly, they too accompany me. When I want to enjoy my day, they come with me. I have them near to me in my heart. The best thing in life are the people called as "friends" who stays with you for whatever you are.

Every year when the time of celebrating friendship day comes, I get all excited. I feel like I'm enjoying and rejoicing their company with me for so long! But sometimes, we might not get an opportunity to celebrate the time together! Like this year, I want to celebrate it with my close buddies but they are very far as of now! I will not be able to meet them this time!

But but, I promise them that next time when we meet up, lets freak out and enjoy ourselves. That day would be just ours! I don't mind whether that would be the friendship day or whatever it is. I just want to be with you all and enjoy your company.

Every stage of life, leaves foot prints on how we came so far! I have made lots of friends in this journey. I have lost few but I have kept many of them safely in my heart.
When I was small, we neighbors were all of same age of mine. We had a good bonding those days that we never knew it was called friendship. We played, fought, laughed, cried and enjoyed being small.. We even complained,abused and scolded each other. I don't have you people near to me now. You all are far off though each of you are still in contact. I miss you people so much! Without you all, my childhood days wouldn't have been fun.

The friends I made in school were not so close to me. I was very different those days and I had thought that all my school mates were my enemies. Though we enjoyed, played and studied together, we had the feeling called as 'hate' between us. Now when I dont have you people near to me, I realize it was just the time and thoughts that made us think like that. I seriously enjoyed being with you all but never thought about it those days. I miss each one of you who were with me for more than 5 to 6 years.

College life was something very serious and funny that I went through. We knew what exactly we were doing, we knew we were enjoying more than we had to. Sleeping and talking during the class hours, mass bunk to watch movies, skip those afternoon sessions only because it was boring, running affairs, helping others to finish the notes, all those canteen talks, big big bundles of xerox notes that looked untouched, studies which never seemed to be ending, every moment of it is still fresh. I will never forget it. I miss all those wonderful times and the close ones with whom I spent my beautiful college life.

And after this phase, every now and then we make new friends. We come across so many people at our work, at our living place, neighbors, blogsville, friends of friends and so on. Few stay close and few walk away. Everytime this day comes up, I start remembering all my friends from the time I was small to the present. Each and every person has made a very deep foot print in my life. I like to treasure them until I'm alive.

2nd August, 2009! The same day again. Year after year I'm still the same, but I have more and more friends who gets close to me day by day. I might not be able to wish them all on this special day. But I remember everyone. I want to thank them here for staying with me, for being with me. I will not be able to meet you all but I can remember you and cherish those memories that I had with you on this day.

Wishing everyone a Very happy friendship day! Enjoy being with friends
