DISCLAIMER- THIS IS MY FIRST ATTEMPT AT BLOGGING, SO PLEASE BEAR WITH ME!

YESTERDAY WAS THE 102ND IWD- INTERNATIONAL WOMAN’S DAY AND WE SPENT IT WITH UTMOST FUN. FUN? IT WAS THE OUTING AT NIGHT WHICH MADE IT “FUN”. AFTER A REALLY HECTIC DAY, AT AROUND 8 O’CLOCK MY FRIEND SAID ” LET’S GO WATCH THE 9:15 PM SHOW OF LONDON HAS FALLEN” TO WHICH I, OF COURSE, DIDN’T AGREE IN THE VERY FIRST GO. ANOTHER ROUND OF NEGOTIATION, AND I WAS CONVINCED (WITH RESIDUAL DOUBTS). SO, TO GAIN SOME MENTAL & PHYSICAL SUPPORT, WE, SORRY I, APPROACHED MY ROOMMATE- SENIOR, STUDYING IN FINAL PROF & WHOSE VERY NAME SENDS CHILLS DOWN THE SPINES OF THE JUNIORS. NO SHE ISN’T BAD AT ALL. I MEAN IT. NOT AT ALL. TO PROVE THAT, ALL I HAVE TO SAY IS THAT SHE COOKED KHICHDI FOR ME WHEN I WAS ILL. THE POINT IS THAT A SENIOR HARDLY DOES ANYTHING FOR A JUNIOR OUT OF EGO BUT SHE DEFIED THAT & COOKED KHICHDI…FOR COMPLETE 1.5 HOURS…AND IT TASTED GOOD.

SO I JUST SPENT AN ENTIRE PARA DESCRIBING MY ROOMMATE (SHE WILL LOVE ME EVEN MORE)…& GETTING BACK TO THE STORY, SHE SAID YES!

MY FRIEND WAS NOW ON CLOUD 9 AND I WAS DIGGING A GRAVE FOR MYSELF. HOWEVER, HALF MY TENSION WAS GONE WHEN SHE BROKE THE NEWS THAT A SCOOTY HAD BEEN ARRANGED. ALRIGHT MULTIPLEX, HERE WE COME.

8:45 PM – WE LEFT THE HOSTEL WITH SOME HITCHES & GLITCHES:

1. I INFORMED THE GUARD THAT WE WOULD BE BACK BY 11 TO WHICH HE GAVE NEUTRAL EXPRESSIONS

2. MY ROOMIE DROPPED HER PHONE

3. THE SCREEN OF HER PHONE CRACKED FROM 1 CORNER

4. SHE BECAME UPSET.

SO ITS UNDERSTOOD WHAT THAT  MAJOR PORTION OF HITCHES & GLITCHES CONSTITUTED.

WE THEN REACHED THE MULTIPLEX ONLY TO SEE 2 OF OUR BATCH MATES & THANKED OUR STARS…THE MORE WE WERE TRYING TO HIDE, THE MORE OUR PLAN WAS BECOMING AN OPEN SECRET. WE PAID THE PARKING FEE & WENT TO BUY THE TICKETS, SAYING SMALL PRAYERS TO OURSELVES FOR WE HADN’T INFORMED ANYONE APART FROM THE GUARD & THE SCOOTY OWNER. ALL HELL BROKE LOOSE WHEN THE PERSON SITTING AT THE COUNTER SAID ” RATS HAVE CHEWED THE SCREEN FROM CORNERS AND SO YOU CANNOT WATCH THE MOVIE”. HEART-BROKEN, DISAPPOINTED, ANGRY, UNHAPPY… ARE SOME ADJECTIVES TO DESCRIBE OUR STATE OF MIND AT THAT POINT OF TIME. SO TO CHEER OURSELVES UP, WE DECIDED TO DINE OUT & GO FOR A RIDE ON THE OUTSKIRTS. WE COLLECTED 10 RUPEES FROM THE PARKING MANAGER & HEADED FOR DINNER.

AFTER DINNER- WHICH WAS INDEED LAVISH AS PER THE STANDARDS SET BY THIS PLACE. IT WAS THE TIME WE ALL SPENT ON THE SCOOTY THAT MADE US EMOTIONAL..

THE COOL LATE EVENING BREEZE, WHICH MADE US SHIFT CLOSER TO EACH OTHER, THE REALIZATION THAT DAWNED UPON US THAT IT WAS WOMAN’S DAY & HOW WE COULD LIVE EACH DAY FEARLESSLY..WHEN WILL THE TIME COME WHEN WOMEN WOULDN’T HAVE TO THINK EVEN ONCE BEFORE LEAVING AT NIGHT, ALONE.

THINKING ABOUT ALL THIS, WE REACHED OUR HOSTEL.

OH & I FORGOT TO MENTION THIS OTHER INCIDENT, A LITTLE FUNNY YE SEE..THE CUSTOMARY PRACTICE OF GETTING PETROL FILLED IN THE SCOOTY WAS OF COURSE NOT SKIPPED ON THAT VERY DAY AS WELL. AS SOON AS WE REACHED THE PETROL PUMP, MY REFLEXES WERE SUCH THAT THE QUESTION I ASKED WAS ” BHAIYA, PETROL PE KYA, KYA OFFER HAI?”. SERIOUSLY, “PETROL PE KYA KYA OFFER HAI?”. OF COURSE, I MADE A LAUGHING STOCK OUT OF MYSELF AS BOTH MY COMPANIONS, THE BHAIYA & 2-3 RANDOM PEOPLE STARTED LAUGHING.

HAPPY WOMEN’S DAY, I SAID TO MYSELF!
