In early childhood years, I used to PRETEND running away from home.
If mom scolded me, I would pack my tiniest school bag with 2 clothes, few tiny dolls and pretend to leave home. Mom would immediately come rushing, pick me up and kiss me.
Sometimes I would just pick up the empty bag and approach the door.
But one day mom didn’t bother stopping me.
I picked up my empty bag. Went down the stairs. VERY SLOWLY. Still no one stopped me.
Walked through the drive way. Even more slowly. Went out of the main gate. It used to be open during the day. Someone stop me pleaseeee!!
Since the day I was born mom had taught me to never talk to strangers and never ever eat anything given by them. I used to even throw away toffees distributed in class by teachers of Kindergarten.
Yeah that was pretty extreme!! 😉 haha
So I very much knew I didn’t have any place to go. I was just standing on the road in scorching sun.
Then I looked up. Mom was standing in the balcony, smiling. She sent me flying kisses and called me back to play a game of Ludo.
Yes please. Thank you. I was getting worried. 😉 :p lol
I came back hugged mom and started hanging from her shoulders. That’s some thing I used to do. :p :p
In another run away attempt, I went down the stairs and found my car waiting outside the main gate, with the driver peacefully sleeping inside. I got inside the car and slammed the door.
He jerked up from sleep and started the car.
But I hadn’t really planned to go anywhere.
Mom started shouting from the balcony. And I also started shouting ‘Stop the car!!’.
Our driver got scared beyond his wits!! :p :p lol
Nowadays, whenever I wanna run away, I go to our other house, located 10 minutes away, packing a few books. But running away in your father’s car just doesn’t go with the theme,instead I go in ‘Auto Rikshaw’.
There’s not much food over there other than biscuits, so I order Chinese, Thai or Mughlai food, watch TV whole night…..try to study a bit….forget to switch off all the lights and fans. Imagine scratching noise at the door…..I’m ‘Home Alone’. 😉
So next day my parents bring home made healthy food in a tiffin carrier. We have fun the whole day. Almost like a picnic 😀
And then they pretend to leave.
I get ‘senti’, hug them….can’t think of staying back and go back with them.
Yeahh………not much swag over there :p
Its again that time of the year when I wanna run away from home….faaaaar from the civilization actually. And nowadays this happens twice every year.
Yes its the SEMESTER time!! Zillions of assignments and strings of exams every month and finally the dreaded semester!!
Ever since college, time’s not measured in years anymore, rather in semesters. I’m gonna be 4 semesters old soon :p
I feel like running away to the Himalayas, in some monastery, away from ‘Frequency Spectrum of FM Wave’.
But there they wake you up at 4am.
Omg plss no!! These days I go to sleep at 6am.
Then I think of running away to the beautiful caves they show in discovery channel. Amidst dense jungles, thin streams and lots of echo. And then I remember this scene.
Nope. I’m fine venting and ranting on my blog and cursing the semesters.
Sometimes I feel that I shouldn’t have taken up Engineering. My school friends are spending their life in night clubs among disco lights and LEDs….while I’m stuck at home learning how to design freaking LEDs.
But my parents are happy and hopefully proud that I’ll be an Engineer. And that is the biggest gift I can get. The smile of your parents is worth everything.
I’ve made some lovely friends on this blog!! And I fell so close to all of you. Thank you so much for your constant support and inspiration. I’m eternally grateful 🙂 And I owe my everything to my greatest parents who are my biggest source of strength and inspiration.
I wanna blog more often. I’m so excited about some of the awards I’ve been nominated for by some of the most kind and talented people here. Thanks a lot. But the semester messes up with everything. But I’ll love to write them as soon as I can.
Watch me get hyper creative. lol :p
I tend to start writing when I feel stressed. Thank god I found this blog. It was getting difficult to stick to the word limit in Fb. Haha :p
I guess everyone knows by now that I tend to write a teeny weeny bit long stuffs 😉 lol
Thank you lovely people of the world for listening to my ‘stress talk’. Lots and lots of love to all of you. Sometimes you need friends who listen to the words of your heart….and just make your day better.
I’m already feeling better. Have a wonderful and blissful day folks 🙂 Thanks a lot for visiting. 😀
