I AM BACK

I have been out of circulation for so long that I dont know where to start:).And I have so much in my mind,but all muddled up also, so may be I may sound some incoherent also.I have been to UP for two months and though the reason for my sudden trip wasnt pleasant, but my trip was all in all very refreshing to me.
First time we two sisters saw a movie..TANU WEDS MANU..and what an enjoyable experience and movie it was!.I loved kangana and Madhavan both, though Kangna is just superb in her character. My brother was wondering ..how could a boy fall in love with a girl like her.( dont we know boys are dimwitted as far as girls are concerned:) what would happen to the guy who gets a girl like her:)..and  here is the contradiction  ..she has played a character which is not conventional, rather opposite of that and still looks lovable, and BTW she changes in the end...loved the song.Rangrej ne kaisa rang dala..its so situational and melodious.
Whenever I go there I finish my quota of sweets for one year at least....travelling in the train, I observe the difference in so many things..there so many cattle, bullock carts,that bhojpuri language, it sounds so musical and so much of milk and its products, and then families living together.Its only after going there i realised that certain traditions are still alive and still girls are learning cooking and doing everything better and better.

In the train I met a couple from Kanpur who were on their 10 day trip to kerala, and the boy was the only son of his wealthy businessman father, and in the conversation it came out that he finds it difficult to manage the conflict between his wife and mother:). And he wanted his wife to understand that his mother is old and set in her ways and cant change herself, and if she could adjust little more, there is no harm :)
Then there was a family..Malyali people settled in Benaras and Lucknow.Their two girls were very sweet and nice and the way the elder girl was helping her naani and looking after her,she was a blessing, I think that children like her  are a real blessing to elders in the family.They make life so pleasant.That girl got up three times in the night to support and take her naani to bathroom.May god bless her!!

Welcome back, Renu! I too heard that the Madhavan movie is quite good!

Even in my family, my sister in law and her husband lived with their sons. She is no more now and my brother in law is living with his eldest son happily. His daughter in law takes care of him very well. Now, her daughter is getting engaged and in their house also we saw the boy's grand parents (in their 80's), living with them! They were involved in the discussion about the marriage and looked very happy!

Life is full of unexpected.
Chance encounters sometimes changes lives.Train journey is one of its kind,when you meet different kind of people.
I hope everything works out good for you.Have wonderful days ahead.

Really it feels beautiful and peaceful when you see a girl tending to elderly and speaking politely.

It is quite easy, maintaining the Indian thing. Appearing graceful and mannered should emerge as a powerful trend in the society. :)

I love bhojpuri and some melodious bhojpoori songs...
Enjoyed your post...

WELCOME BACK! Cant tell you how happy I am to have your posts again :)
Well well well..... generation gap exists.... the young man might realise that.. and sometimes, his enhanced love for her, might make her more appreciative of her mil.. i dunno i cant judge neone else's scenario without knowing full details..but i hope peace prevails.
And hope you have a prolific time now- and keep on writing. I missed you a lotttttttttttttttttttt. :)
