My 1st day out….


It was for the first time, I went out with my friends, in my 17 years and also It was also for the first time, I lied to my parents and went out with my friends. The lying part is not new; the new thing is lying and going out with the friends.

Actually we had to take admission forms from various colleges, but a day before the decided day, i.e on 26th May 27, 2010, we realized that there is some festival…I guess Buddha Purnima on 27th May, so on that account, the colleges will remain closed. But plan was already made and I wanted an excuse to go out with my friends. I have already turned them down many times, when they had asked me to come with them. But this time everything was set, I had already asked my parents and they had allowed me…to take the form. So after lots of planning and considering all the factors like timing, excuses for coming late and places to go, our plan was completely set. I moved down from my home toward Churchgate and my friends, Sam, Raj and Nina, they moved from Colaba. We all met at the station at nine o’ clock and moved toward the Marine drive. Raj had his camera, I asked him for it. It was a latest Sony camera a…I don’t remember the model so leave it. We took pictures while walking on the seats along the coast sometimes me and Raj then me and Nina, then Sam and Nina etc…I realized my photos were not coming good when my hair was tied so I removed the clip and let it fall open, then pictures came brighter than actually I am but it was too hot, so I tied back my hair. From there, we took the bus for Hanging Garden. The name sounds so beautiful and exciting and I was so excited to see something like Hanging Garden. But when we reached it was nothing else than a wide spread Garden. All full of beautiful flowers with different shades of color. There were animal shaped grown henna shrubs. Some of them were…Giraffe, Horse, peacock, etc. One was of Hanuman Ji too. It was morning 10 o’ clock so garden was very empty only a few people, actually all old people were there, taking a stroll in the garden. And some of the couples, sitting below the sheds made to sit. We took a round of the Garden and in between came a water tank where we washed our faces, freshened up ourselves and started moving ahead. We reached the gate from where we had entered and then Nina said.”I am feeling thirsty.”I gave her my bottle and after her, all of had a sip and finally the bottle was empty.

“Let me fill it up, we still have other places to go.”I handed over my purse to her and ran to the water tank .When I turned back after filling the bottle I saw them (my friends) coming toward me, we met near a small exit and there was a bench and we sat there before leaving.

“Where are we going to go now?” Nina asked in a tired tone .The boys didn’t say anything and we waited for there reply. After five minutes they said,” would you like to see the Shoe house?”

“Where is it?” I asked in a very uninterested way. Sam pointed out in his left and I could see a huge shoe there. I got so happy and said “chalo chalo cahalo chalo”. We all moved towards the entrance of the Garden, the Shoe house garden. At the gate, Nina bought some chips for all of us. We entered the shoe and clicked the photographs. Besides the shoe, there were other things to see to like, we could see the chow patty from the garden and it was so beautiful like to see a sea from the sky, colorful boats, huge buildings along the coast of the sea, just so natural. We started moving the other side of the garden and reached the sunflowers, the beautiful yellow sun facing huge flowers .We had pictures with them and then after all the play with the flowers we sat there on the bench to decide what’s next. Nothing was coming to the mind, nothing. All of got really frustrated, we even called our friends but the names they suggested were too expensive and some of them were too late for us now. So finally I said,” lets go to some mall, no sun, all AC, there we will eat something and get back to our place”…after few seconds I realized I wanted to go to a beach so I said,” okay, lets go the chowpatty first then to the mall.”We took the bus and got down at the beach. There we had so much fun, we played with water made pictures on sand, took photographs. Nina was the happiest person to be there I guess, she was enjoying it so much .The sun was on the head but it didn’t matter at all, except for when we had to walk bare foot on dry sand. We got into the water up to our knees. All of a sudden a huge wave came and wetted us up till our waist. All the sand entered inside the body and it started itching, but when fun is waiting you, nothing matters, we still enjoyed ourselves and when we realize it is getting late for the mall, we were finally over and moved towards the small stalls to full our stomach as none of us had breakfast in the morning, and to dry up ourselves. We ordered two plates pawbhaji.I and Nina shared in one plate and Sam and Raj in the other. After finishing, Nina and Sam had a gola, sort of Ice cream without cream and only ice, colored one. And then we took taxi for Churchgate. There Raj took out cash from the ATM and Sam bought the tickets for Lower Parel. As we sat in the train, call came from Raj’s house.

“Where are you Raj”, his dad asked.

“I am near Jai Hind colleges dad “, Raj replied almost scared, and due to some network problem the phone disconnected. Afraid that his dad is somewhere near Churchgate he called up his brother to ask, again his dad picked up the call.

“Dad, can I talk to bhaia please?”,as he said this, a train passed from our side making the thad thad sound but his dad didn’t notice I guess, and passed the phone to his brother and then,

Bhaia is everything okay?”, he asked, panicked.

“Ya everything is fine, you don’t worry. I will handle if anything gets wrong, enjoy yourself”, his brother replied .Raj thanked and cut the phone and in that mean time we reached Lower Parel. We walked down the station; a book stall came across the way, and guess what???

I saw Twilight …my favorite book. I asked him the price he said,”Rs 150” .I didn’t have time to bargain so I said I will take it while returning.

We reached the mall, roamed and saw everything and finally when our stomach started answering, we looked for Mc D. But when we entered, it was so full. We came out and searched some other places. We reached Subway, the food shop, even that was so much full and then moved to Dommino’s, again, no empty table for four. With frustration, Sam said, “lets go back to Mc D once again”, and luckily we got a table at the corner of the room. I and Nina rested there while boys got the food. We had a burger and a float coke each. There also we clicked two three pictures and when we came out of the shop we saw Mr. Mc Donalds (a muse) sitting on a long bench. We clicked pictures with him turn by turn. And finally moved toward the station.As we got to the book stall I asked the man for the book. He gave it in my hand and said,” Madam Rs.100.” I started bargaining it for Rs.70. He was not agreeing, finally Nina spoke, we will buy two book, give it in 80 each. After exchanging ten arguments, finally he agreed, we got our books and moved to the station. I took my train for Dadar and said good byes to my friends.

This is how I spent my day, my first day out with my friends with so much fun, just unforgettable.

Johnny Johnny…Yes Papa!!!!


Jhonny,the fifth member of my family, is no more with us.Finally, mom left him today.

Mom got him from her evening walk on, February 1st.When we saw him for the first time, we were just scared of him, as we carrying him. We initially didn’t make any remark of him and asked her casually about what’s there in the bag, and she said dog. We thought she must be joking and then opened the bag and found him. Shocked to see him, we shouted at the top of our voice. But we had to accept that mom is serious about keeping him and so there was no other way. He had a deep wound on his neck and was very dirty with so many insects on his body, so my mom kept him in a carton through which he couldn’t come out and gave him a bowl full of milk. As soon as the plate was on the floor the milk from it vanished to his stomach and then we gave him the other plate, the same happened with the second and finally we had to stop after giving him the fourth time as he was over. The next morning mom took him to the vet nary and got his wound treated and the rest of the day passed, the same way as last evening. Drinking milk, peeing every where and doing no.2 too. He was then shifted to the small place below the TV rack, and he loved that place so much that he only came out of it for the food and when there was natures call. He grew up and started moving out, surveying the house and also season was getting hotter and also he was growing so he  avoided sleeping in that closed area and came out and slept on the floer.We all loved him as much as we love other members of our family and  I was no more scared of taking him in my hands, he was so soft that you won’t feel like removing your hand from him and when he laughed (we interpret so, when we giggled him) he looked as the most beautiful dog I have ever seen.

Now he is around five months old,he used to climb on the bed, move everywhere in the house and of course now his diet has changed he only eats rice and milk with cashew nuts powder spread over it or chicken, in beverages he loved tea, and only cold water. He also used to eat salad and raw green vegetables and soybeans. And for sleeping if AC is on, bedroom is fine or else bathroom with all time AC. He bathed twice everyday, actually my mom used to make him do so and he has got some after bath effect he gets so much excited that he runs with full speed all over the house climbs here and there. And when it comes to barking he is a true dog , barks with his full energy. He got  more and more demanding everyday.

But these things never mattered much.What we, actually my parents, don’t like about him is, he barks a lot  that to on family members,may be he has fot some problem with his sight or memory, he doesn’t allow mom to wash him and is always eager to go out,in fact doesn’t eat anything also ,never does potty and pee in the toilet and always in the bedroom.Such things really irritated my mother.After all how much she can do?She already cared for him like his own son,but how would he understand my mothers love for him.So today morning when I woke up my dad told me that mom has gone to leave him where she found him.Just got a shock but could not say anything because it was her who was in trouble with him all of us just enjoyed and never cared for the troubles which he gave to mom.So I didn’t speak anything and waited for my mom to return.She came back and said,”no use,he followed me and reached the building before me.But I am not going to bring him back.Let him stay there I don’t care.”You wont believe.I was so so so happy to hear that at least he will be near me .I immediately went down the building to see him.He was there playing with other stray dogs and he was so much lost in playing that he didn’t want to come back to home with me,it sort of hurt me but not too much so after looking at him I came back to my place.And started writing this page.

After half an hour my mom asked me to go down and get some vegetables,I saved the draft and went down to the shop as soon as I cam into Johnny’s sight he jumped at me and started climbing over me.Immediately I took him in my hands and tears came out of my eyes and started  coming out as if somebody opened the tap of tears in my eyes.I took him to the bathroom bathed him and behind me my mother was asking,”what happened?why are you crying?”I couldn’t say anything.She said,”you go and buy the vegetables ,I will clean him up.”Finally, I got relief and when I was back from the shop he was neat and clean,sleeping nicely.

I cant imagine how the days would have been without him.He is very sweet and I love him a lot.And never let him go,ever.

2nd May 2010


The day was beautiful and special, but nothing seemed like special. Yesterday my returned from his tour of 20 days and since it was Sunday, he was enjoying it.

2nd May 2010, my sister’s birthday.Everyone in the house was in a good mood.Though it was a special day, but it was going like a Sunday so I can’t say whether things were really special or not.Like everyday I sat on my computer to write my blog,my dad, all of a sudden appeared before me, took the mouse from my hand and started reading the My Family page of this blog.He read it completely, and those who have read it (it has been deleted now) know the content.I don’t know why he misunderstood my words but it hurt him like somebody stabbed a sharp knife in his heart.

I had written both good as well as bad but of course with my bad luck what I had expected happened.He  could notice only the bad things….they were not exactly bad i wrote just with the intentions of being very frank and didn’t think of its side effects….

And since that day…this life seems to me like hell.Everything went wrong.I am not mentioning what all happened to me otherwise even that can lead to something worse than that…but that day I decided of quitting blogging.

But its me..Shruti.I never give up..this is something I like about me a lot always .So today I sat again and I am writing this post for all those who think may be I learnt a lesson, which I didn’t…

Three cheers for me coming back and my spirit of writing….

HIP HIP HURRAY……….

Boredom


Breaking Dawn is over, with that I have finished all the four books of the Twilight series and the two movies.Now the two of the entrances,AIEEE and IIT-JEE, are also over which I screwed up like hell.I don’t have anything to do now.No books left to read and no interest for the upcoming entrance exams.

My daily routine is waking up, having bath, then, breakfast and then again a nap, lunch TV continuously till 8 pm then dinner and then to bed again.In between I do sit on net for blogging and orkuting but everyday following the same routine just sucks.

When we were in school we used to wait for Sunday so eagerly and now, when we are full of holidays we just can’t adjust ourselves.Truly human beings’ nature is so weird, we always run after something which we don’t have and when we get it becomes nothing but a possession.It is impossible to understand a human, by a human itself. huh…

But I really find a lot of fun in blogging though the traffic here is very less.I am so much bugged of studies that now I just hate even looking at my textbooks but I have already played enough games with my life so I don’t want to take any more risk.So even though if I don’t like reading the books I will tolerate them till all my exams get over.I swear if I will be successful in blogging, I will give up everything and continue this because it is really fascinating, not only blogging with this I will also start writing, but before that I need to improve my vocabulary and english a lot.

I will do that soon.
