The rains, splattering noisily outside my window, prompted me to visit this page. And I realized, I didn’t post at all during summer. So much has been happening. Almost every week I wanted to capture some or the other experience but the writer’s block was kind of strong this time.
Here goes the list of awesome things, that deserved a post each!
My closest cousin, A’s wedding. From meeting the sister-in-law for the first time and realizing that bro has been completely floored by her- in a nice way to rehearsals of arguments to the family, from exclaiming and complaining about a wedding date just 3 weeks away to standing up to shoulder the responsibility of various tasks to ensure a memorable wedding for the couple. The highlight, though- I signed the marriage registration form as a witness. Now I have, in my quiver, the argument- Be nice to me, I got you guys married. For some improbable moments.
River rafting and kayaking in the Ganges! For those who know me and my “love” for water, would know how big a step like this is for me. And I have to admit- I enjoyed it. A lot. There was indeed some melodrama involved before I agreed.
I begged to the guide, and then I threatened him when, half way through a kayaking session, he told me that he is going to topple the raft. Finally managed to bargain to topple closer to the bank where rest of the group was than in middle of the river. I cursed M for going back for a second round in a kayak with the super hot guide soon after I had gathered all my courage and decided to go for a second round! And I had to go with the not-so-bad one.
Staring out of the flight window, a midst clouds, I suddenly spotted another aircraft. Perhaps a common view, but a first time for me. And happened again during the next leg of my journey. Up in the clouds, another plane giving you company… and then the vapor trail, appearing much closer than it does from land.
To be continued in second part…
