Rakshabandhan and the following commotion

Sis was here for Rakshabandhan. It had been six years since she tied Rakhee around my wrist and six years since she got a present from me. So she decided to come over to Chennai from Pune, the second reason  being more compelling I believe. And it happened. Fair. Oh, and yes, special thanks to Shruti for arranging for her accommodation.

She had to leave yesterday at 11:45am. We had returned from beach after a futile attempt to see the sunrise (I had never seen the beach so cloudy) and were quite understandably a bit, well, tired. It was 8:30am. I lay down on my bed, thinking that we will leave around 10. It was then that slumber took over. I woke up, saw the watch. 11:30am. Fuck! The train was about to leave in 15 minutes and we were kilometers away from station! I called sis just to find that she too was comfortably asleep. I told her to glance at her watch. “Shit” was what I heard next.

Ya, so we missed the train. All sorts of plans were made, from alternative connecting train routes to bus journeys. We finalized on a flight scheduled at 4:45am from Chennai.

A lot of hectic hours later, when everything was re-planned and I assured her that it was okay, I got some peace. Neta accompanied us to the airport. Standing near Sharav with the call taxi waiting, we had a small shot of Absolut vodka, raspberry flavour  🙂 Sis said it was like a cough syrup 😛

The last three days while she was here had been nice. I showed her the most of my campus, with pride. Its beauty was one thing she simply couldn’t deny, not even for the sake of not agreeing to my point. I liked that! To top it all, I got a message from her when she reached Pune, saying “Ganga wing rocks for sure”. Ah!

    ‘Fuck’ says the Bro,
    ‘Shit’ says the Sis!

    ‘Travel-by-train’ plans the Bro,
    ‘Travel-by-flight’ planned and implemented by the Sis!

    ‘Vodka’ tastes Vodka for the Bro,
    ‘Vodka’ tastes Syrup for the Sis!

    Be it whatever, Gangasters rock,
    …their siblings think likewise too!

    @Bulla: The train and flight thing was slightly different.

    @Naren: Fuck you! Thanks!
