House Party....

Staying away from home endears you to others who are away from home as well.And if you happen to find like-minded people,friendship is sure to blossom:-)
It is these friends(specially,if they DON'T double up as your roomies;)) that make your weekends special and hanging out with them is something worth looking forward to!!

But when you have been staying in the same city for quite some years,hanging "out" as such also becomes quite boring ,as all the malls have been visited and all the places worth seeing,been seen.

If it is all about having a gala time with friends,then what better than meeting up at one of our houses...but yes,there are roommates who might not be very welcoming to the idea of playing passive hosts on a weekend.

So,last weekend,when I happened to have my house all by myself,I invited my friends to come over for lunch.They agreed and 3 two-wheelers made way to my house.

A bottle of coke,lunch ordered,TT,Biliards,Dumb charades,indoor cricket and we didn't know how time flew.Add to it individual performances by each one(including the re-run of already heard joke;);)) and we ended up having not only much to enjoy but also to remember and laugh out later!!

I guess,if the movie we saw later, "cocktail" would have have been a little better..it would have been a perfect end to the fun day:(...but again we had dinner together and the movie was forgotten;);)

So you see,house parties rock.I have been a part of many since school days,and advocate them even now.If only,we had more houses to party in;);)

Ek Machchar.......!!!

There is there advertisement on air these days with the tagline..."Ghar pe rakho kala HIT,kyunki ek machchar bhi dangerous hai"...now,I dont know how well HIT works...but yes,one mosquito really does change your life dangerously!!

It was nearly two years ago,that I was diagnosed with Dengue.Admitted to hospital in a critical state,I survived thanks to the efficient doctors and the needle jabbing nurses.Was out of the hospital and recovered gradually...but what I missed out that time was that the other name for Dengue is "bone-breaker" fever...and higher the intensity of the fever,higher will be the adverse effects on the bones.

So, the Bone-Breaker that hit me was so severe that every time the temperature drops or there are cold winds blowing,I end up getting severe pain in some joint or other.And when that pain strikes,there is absolutely nothing that can lift my spirits.The doctors say these pains are a common after effect and will be gone gradually,but might take time...but what these pains have taught me is how important every single part of the body is for us.

The otherwise simple-seeming tasks like turning the door-knob or tying shoelaces seem herculean when the fingers are swollen....and something as normal as walking seems impossible when the ankles are hurting:(:(

Its also funny how your life changes due to such occurrences...a person like me who used to love winters now dreads any temperature dip..but the biggest change can be seen in my mother.A very-kind-at-heart person,my mom used to be content by just driving away the mosquitoes from the house,but since that wretched mosquito bit me,she makes sure that either by  swatting them or spraying pesticide,each mosquito is dead(ek bhi bachne na paaye!!;))...Talk of taking revenge!!
