Khwaab chunrahi hain raat....

Fell In love and this time its with this city,Those of you read this blog know that i hated coming here,and i have been constantly cribbing about Bangalore and how i felt like an alien,well, today i fell in love,when? hmmmm,no idea,maybe the moment when.....

we both were driving past Madivala and i bargained with a roadside vendor and got a cane stool for almost 50% of what he quoted.

Maybe when i realised that we were driving without being stuck at any trafficjams or red signals for more than 20min i felt Yupppppppppppppiiiiiiiiiiiiiiieeeeeeeeeeee:)

Or maybe when we stopped at Adiyar AnandBhavan for buying Kalajamun, chumchum, Kalakhand, Badam mysorepak and gulkhand peda and ohhhhh,boy,was i not giving best of my smiles looking at all those sweets:)i have been terribly missing those innumerable sweet shops {most of them started with the name balaji ratanlal} and then....

when we were coming out it started raining ,Yesssssssssss,maybe this was the moment, and the scene changed,everyone were rushing for the shade to save themselves from getting wet,It all changed in a few moments, people of all kinds,weather it were the posh fashion statement cutie standing next to me or a traditional chudidaar clad girl trying to save her blooks from getting wet or the guy busy discussing about recent developments in technology with a friend over a cup of coffee or the old man who was with his grandson telling him some story, the middle age couple there trying to help eachother,hubby putting his helmet on her head while she trying to make him wear it himself or those two love birds sharing chaat and smiling oblivious of the world, we were all one there,forgetting the shells which we live in all were enjoying the moment of life,forgetting the mad rush,the busy schedules and complex developments and just being there at that moment.

Or was it when sitting on the bike and humming "pia tose naina laage re,naina laage,jaane kya ho ab aage re"" while hubby was cursing the rain and how i was getting wet without caring about health:) Huh,how do i explain him that this moment makes me even more stronger and healthy and i kept humming to myself " aye zindagi gale lagaale,humne bhi tere har ek ghum ko gale se lagaaya hain? hain na"
And when i heard a guy singing to himself on the bike in the rain at a traffic signal "hasthoo hardam,khushiya ya ghum,kisi se darna nahi,dar dar ke jeena nahi......." wow, there are lot of people who remember old songs,isn't it.

Or was it when i realised there is no power and inverter was out of charge and lit a candle,opened the windows, had daal chawal under candle light,went to bed with my SonyICD-U50 listening to "chup chaap karthi hain baatein teri ye khaamoshiyaan, Chup Chaap Sunte Hai Dil Ki Halki Halki Sargoshiyan " and kept the windows open and i can hear the pitterpatter of the rain,the day came to an end but then a new day awaits,and i know i am in love and waiting for the new day to welcome it with a smile,the music continues and now its " tummm pukaar lo,tumhara intezaar hain,tum pukaar lo,kwaab chunrahi hain raat,bekaraar hain,tumhara intezaar hain,tumm pukaar lo"

i think i had a similar experience with bombay...and i think it had to do with rains too...it's so strange when all of a sudden one starts loving a new city for the smallest of reasons...
