I HATE BANGALORE!!!
Before you make any conclusions , these were the words uttered by my sister as she returned back from a one month getaway from home , completely filled with adventure .. aah ..
not for her though! ;)
This one month if nothing else, i have been ROTFL!
She would be graduating as a lawyer next year and she bagged a one month internship in one of the best law firms in the country!
Venue : FM office
She is about to take her seat in the office when in the middle of a hall full of advocates and directly opposite to the Senior Advocates desk, she trips and falls!
The whole crowd bursts out laughing!
Time : Early Morning
Condition : Voice less due to entangled tonsilitis
Consequence : Multiple visits to the doc accompanied by uninvited leaves from office.
..ok i know..thats sad .. but read on!
Time : Late in the evening
She calls me and shouts: 'foooo (name with-held to maintain anonymity ;)) ! Mai naali mein gir gaya!'
(trans: 'foooo! i fell in a pit)
I respond back : 'Abhi kahan se bolri hai , naali se?'
(trans: 'Currently where are you calling from, the pit??)
We all here at home were in fits of laughter.
Consequence : The biggest pit in bangalore has been dug at the cost of an unfoldable knee!!
Time : 11AM
I get a call from my cousin. She asks 'Did you by any chance loose your wallet when here in January?'
I started laughing like crazy once again .. and told her that i would get back in sometime.
My sister was pick-pocketed by some smart-ass in the bus while she was on her way to office! The best part , she was not aware till the time i called up and asked her to search for it!! Man!
Luckily, her wallet was found by some sane guy, who took out a SIM in the wallet , put in his cellphone and picked out my cousin's number!
Time : Early in the morning
I get a call stating the stories of the previous night! What was said is better left unrevealed! Hic ! ;)
Today , she was home and she opened her luggage and for the first time i saw what stones she had carried all the way!
When she had left for bangalore, she paid some 1K odd for over-luggage while flying! She was gone but we were all eyeing with crazy questions!
It was only today that i saw that she was carrying 8 pairs of footwear , all of them with decent dimensions! WTH! ;)
I still do not know what the above incidents have to do with her opinion on the city , but man i still giggle at her pit-falls and torn pockets! :D
Welcome back you b'lored soul! :)
