Last month when I went to rajsthan one astrologer told me that I have very difficulty in believing people. And like other things he told I could not deny this also. Yes I can get suspicious sometimes. But then when you meet some people who make you believe in humanity, trusting people.
I met these 2 boys last week. I have been driving scooty since last 3 years buy still very lazy in taking care of it.so one day while coming back home after long trip my scooty stopped in middle of highway. It made me so panicked as this has never happened before and I had no idea what to do now or what’s wrong either. There was no petrol pump or garage near. I started walking with scooty buy couldn’t continue after 10 -15 minutes. And due to my why nature could not ask anyone also. But then w boys on scooty stopped near asking what happened. They opened tank and told me it was empty. I looked blankly not knowing whteher to believe them or not and what to do next. They themselves started searching something when I asked what is it they said they were looking for pipe to transfer the petrol from their tank. What?? Did he just said what I think I heard. I think he did. They could not find pipe so asked my mom to come with o w of them to nearest petrol pump on their scooty. As there was no option my mother went with 1 of them, other one waited with me. I asked why is he doing this , wasting his time when he can actually go and no one even can blame him then he told me that when he was once traveling and his bike too stopped in the middle of the highway and at that time someone had helped him to carry his bike to nearer garage. So he thought he must help someone just to reply that. I was shocked d this 2018 and people still think like this. World is not that bad place then…. Isn’t it….??
So other one came back with my mother within 10 miutes and poured petrol in my bike. They even refused to take money my mother offered to them. We could not do more than giving them blessings.
They say be grateful to people you met in tour life and I always complained where are these people I should be grateful f1ir but I guess these are those…
Raj, 4yr old boy playing in the garden ,with girl of my age. He was in our group when I went to vacation few years back. I thought she must be his aunt or something. But then he said “mumma” and I started looking for his mother but it took me a while to realize who he was talking to. Yes that girl 24-25yr was his mom. Unbelievable. How can someone marry so early. Only 2 of them had come with their family. Everyone in the group thought his father must be busy so could not make it to the trip. The boy was so naughty and talkative. Withing few days he became everyone’s favorite even though no one was his age. I have never seen him crying once during that week which very unusual for his age. There was one more thing which was unusual for his age. Throughout the trip he never ever mentioned his dad. Generally moms threatened their child on dad’s name when he is not around or that’s what happened with us and with others too. But his mom never did that. When I told my mom this she actually got angry on me for judging and I felt bad too so I left the idea. I sometime used to feel bad for her as when everyone was busy taking photos or admiring spots she was running around her son. She even missed few spots when he got tired or bored and stayed with him in hotel instead. she even used to sing his favourite songs like barbie girl whenever people used to play antakshari. I used to feel sad for her as she was my own age and doing all those stuffs which not only me but also ny friends were still afraid of. Once we were having lunch and she passed and one of the lady in our group asked my mom “did you know what has happened with her”?” I gave my mother see I told you look. Then that aunty told us that she got married at early age and got divorced when boy was not even year old as his father was alcoholic and used to hit her. So that answered most of my questions and I actually felt proud for the girl. As she had decided to raise her son own her own at so early age, specially in india where facing community is as difficult as getting hit by drunk husband. I so wanted to tell her that what she was doing was very brave and her son will be proud of her for this one day but could not do that as I never got to talk to her properly. Now when I look back I realise I should have said those things to her. Actually I have heard about solve parents only in tv serials , I know this may sound funny but yes that’s what happens in india. Girls stretch or adjust with husband or his family as much as they can before going fir divorce. But with her example I realise girl should know when to stop and that’s what is important as where to start is…??
Last month mom and I went to rajsthan with local tourist company. I actually hate going with tour companies but then mom wanted to go with them so I agreed. As soon as we reached Jaipur airport there were 25-30 people in our group waiting for your company boy to arrive. I saw him from distance standing with name plate of company almost 4’5 feet boy was waving at us. I don’t know why but being 5’10 myself I need some time to adjust with people who are extremely shorter than me. It’s not that I am teasing them but since childhood people used to tease me for being heighted so I made friends of my height height to be comfortable but then that habit stayed with me.
So we followed him to bus and left for hotel. He asked us to go to our rooms and hell send the luggage to our rooms. I insisted on taking my bag on my own since my name tag on bag tored down on airport. But he denied saying he’ll manage. After almost half an hour when the bag did not arrive I got extremely mad at him and he smilingly told me it’s not there. On the first day of my trip he was telling me that I lost my bag. I so wanted to kill him. He told me to take rest and started searching for bag on all the floors. How can I take rest when things for taking rest were also in that bag..?? Withing 15minures he came back , with sad face saying ” ma’am I think we lost it. ” I had no words for that I just opened my mouth thinking what to say and he started laughing and showed me my bag. I could not help but laughed back. I asked him “did you know I can complain about you for this and still you are laughing.”..?” He said nothing and went smiling.
That was my introduction with him. throughout our trip to rajsthan he was with us all the time, walking with same flag. He was my age and within days I felt like I was talking with one of my friend rather than tour guide. And not only me but he was friendly with people of all ages. While talking with him I realised he was in rajsthan since last 2-3mobths and one after others groups were coming from Mumbai and he was with different people almost every week. That really fascinated me as how can you be so friendly with people within days even when those people are there only for days. But he was doing that. And especially he loves his job. He used to joke saying you people come here on vacation while I go home on vacation.
For someone who is extremely introvert like me it was different experience to be friend with someone withing days and I should give him the entire credit. I’ll come to know whenever he is hiding while people from the group ask him to click photos continuously, or when he used call in the early morning to wake us up inspite of me begging him not to do so in the night because It never felt like we were actually his clients and not friends.
If I would not met people like him I would have never believed that such crazy people do exist who do not consider bussiness as strict business and way of meeting new people, smiling at then and with them even if it’s for few days….
If you can read in marathi then there is one book you should definitely try is P.L. Deshpande ‘s “Vyakti ani Valli”. The book is about different people author met in his life and everyone’s different nature in his own words. It’s one of my favorite book of all time. Since I read that book as child I also started noticing details in people which make them different. So this little series about such different yet so commom people I came across.
I first met her when she came with her brother to my granny’s house. My uncle wanted to appoint her as full time nanny for my cousin. I did not even bother to give her smile as she was going to be servant in our house so I thought it’s better maintain a distance. But so wrong I was going to be for next 7 years….
She was sitting quietly. As first timer in Mumbai she was little bit shy and did not look up throughout my mama asking her questions. She was just 17yrs at that time so only year older to me. I felt sad at that point as I was in 11th std by then and here she was leaving her village few hundred kilometers away to do job. She came to leave at uncles house.
She was total opposite of I had her 1st impression of. She was too much talkative. We used to talk for like hours when we had nothing at all in commom. If someone would have told me I going to be freind with girl from remote village of maharashtra, studied only till 9th (when I was in medical school),interested in making new recipes everyday(when I can’t even make tea yet) but yes we were best friends. She was the one who made me realize that in friendship doesn’t need same age or interest or geographical area. It’s just happens. Like magic. She knew all my favourite recepies, some of which she learned from my mom. Whenever I used to go to granny’s place she use to make lemon juice before I come n put it in freeze n as soon as I reach home she’ll hand me over glass of it. I was overwhelmed by this gestute all the time. She was doing all those things when no one even asked for it. I never realised when I started referring her as my cousin whenever I talk about her in my friends.
Since child I only had 1 complaint that I don’t have elder brother. I have no idea why I was so obsessed with idea of having elder brother but with her I felt content that my wish was granted. I asked for brother and I got best sister. When she got married and left uncles house after 7 years I cried more than her mom. I miss her too much. I miss our aimless talks for hours, I miss her food but more than that I miss my sister. Thank you so much sweetheart for coming in my life , teaching me that good people do exist…..
I am not huge fan of sci fi movies. My only favourite sci fi cartoon was jeorge Jetson. But when I saw “In Time” it made me nervous, stunned , mesmerised all at the same time. The movie revolves around having less time (sadly the concept applies to today’s era too but to less severely) so as the trailer says everyone gets time clock of 1 yr in their 25th birthday n clock is visible on left forearm. According to that there are different time zones and rich have more time and become practically immortal while poor die early. Throughout the movie I was totally glued to the screen. It became horrified at the times as I realised how much time we waste on day to day basis thinking we have abundant time.
Sometimes kicks like this are required to understand value of things we have in abundance. So I have decided this year that Ill stop watching my favourite movies again and again. I’ll learn new language or restart doing painting. They say time is money but we never realizes this untill we run short of it. So my friends use it wisely before it becomes too late
Have you heard this song? It’s not that great , just funny. How can you love someone like you hate at the same time? But that’s exactly my relationship with YouTube. I love it as it helps in my studies by connecting me with teachers of the world but I hate it when it suggest me to watch why shah rukh khan is angry at his daughter?
I love it when I learn new hairstyle at home but I hate it when it wants me to watch 10 mistakes in “XYZ” movie. I consider myself lucky when I can find answer to my question in 5 minutes but I wanna bang my head when I see trending list showing how to earn money by putting clove in lemon.
Dear You tube you are the best and worst friend I have ever got. You make me laugh when I am depressed but you make me cry when you suggest me things which are not even remotely related to my search history.
Sometimes I feel you should stop giving suggestions at all. I’ll find my way as per my need. I wish there should some way to block things which I don’t wanna see like movie trailors and everything related to them, cricket updates, random youtubers telling something which I am not gonna use in next 100 years like my husband does my make up tag.
I don’t know whether you tube will be that changed in future or not and if it will how much time will that take but till then I think our relationship status will be complicated.🤔
I am a big you tube fan but there are tons of videos. So when you come across really good videos you want to share them. So today I am going to share my favourite you tube videos of the month. Since ii an a music list 4 of 5 are if songs.
1. First one short film on water it’s called dry dreams. I saw it for actress as I love her but it turned out to be futuristic sci-fi type one. It’s really good film and worth your time. https://youtu.be/lUqst2bS7wM
2. Second one is music video apparently of same actress.😅 I liked the song but I loved the story much more. I was so engrossed in guessing ending and it was really dramatic. Definitely worth a watch. https://youtu.be/j9jlAww4nHQ
3. Next song is for medical students. Everyone knows disney princess Elsa’s famous song Let it go. So they made parody of song with med students problem. I laughed and felt connected instantly. Medical students must watch. https://youtu.be/EtAG3e3JLNI
4. Are you a fan of Sia’s cheap thrills?? Who’s not? I feel like dancing every time I hear it. So same song is played on a flute. It’s so melodious even on simple flute without any lyrics. https://youtu.be/abNkE247GXI
5. Have you heard songs when you don’t know the language but still love it?? If yes then you’ll love next one. It’s in tamil. I did not understand a single word of it but it’s just so soothing you instantly feel relax. They say music doesn’t need language you can feel it in you heart. This ones definitely one of them. https://youtu.be/2P_0Q8CIjw8 enna solla
