An evening of Meetings in Madras!! :)

09 Nov


Its 11pm as I write this now and I just came back home after being at the Besantnagar (Bessy) Beach the whole of this evening!! Btw (esp. this is for Isd’s info) as I write this, I am listening to Haule Haule from SRK’s soon to be released movie “Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi” – a catchy cum peppy tune I must add! 🙂

Anyways, I got to meet a whole lot of friends today at the beach in 2 separate meets. First one scheduled at 5pm was a bloggers meet, an informal gathering of our company’s internal bloggers. Though we don’t need a reason to meet, today it was to meet a blogger who had recently moved to Chennai from Coimbatore on transfer. It was that time for some of us, where we get to match a face to the name we have known for long through his/her blog. Its always nice to get to meet the person you love through his/her writeups!! 🙂

Though the bessy beach is just 2 kms away from my flat, today I went there after 3 weeks…sad that I needed a reason to go to a place I love to go. Hmm…anyways, I loved to get half wet in the cold salty water of the lovely ocean…the bay of bengal….

We chatted for a while sitting on the sands as many unknown people approached us now and then…some offering to read our palms and some our faces, some vendors offering to sell us their products and some seeking alms. We heeded to none, as we went on and on…well, there were those moments of silence but lets not hype about that!!!

Then we went to this place called Planet M which is sort of a food court, and had another chat session (both mouth-uttering and mouth-watering ;)) for close to an hour before we all departed, one by one and slowly!! 🙂

My next meet was with a set of gals…Let me intro those with their proxy names…Didi, Secy, Bevdi and Suba (Aww…she doesnt have one…need to think one for her)!! They were hogging all this while at Cake Walk as Nive and I joined them there…Nive left for home in sometime while the rest of us had another hog-session for another one hour. No wonder we then complain about putting on weight…as the gals bitched about different stuff, I dawgged!! Woof Woof!! 😉

After the pet-pooja, we were back on the shores of the beach…with Bevdi and Suba deciding to sit on the shores, it was just Secy, Didi and me who took a long walk on the sands till the very spot where the waves touched our toes…All the way, there were some intellectual talks…some matured ones…some of the usual bitching and ‘dawgging’ and some stupid giggles. Mom called in between asking me about my beloved ill-health which refuses to leave me inspite of all the medications and precautions. She even went, “Why there when you are not feeling well?” when I replied “Beach” to her “Where are you?” query!!  Ah! you know Moms!! 😀

On getting back to Bevdi and Suba, we got into a discussion on movies…especially the scary and horror types…which led to talks on black magic and voodoo dolls…not quite intellectual, but nevertheless.
I walked Didi down to her house, main reason being the books she had asked for, which I had kept in my Activa parked near her place.

After a quick bye, I joined the other 3 for dinner at this place called “Family Restaurant”…it was our first visit to that place, and definitely our last. The place stinks…big time. It was stinking outside (some drainage leak) where we sat, but it was stinking even more in the AC inside. Sheesh.! And the service, was pathetic…the mineral water we had asked for came right at the end of the course, that we were kinda unsure if it was to drink or for hand wash! Food, well…was nothing great!

But overall it was a good evening as I got to meet a whole lot of my gang-of-friends here  in Chennai for these short-n-quick meets…and as Sukhwinder still goes on, Haule Haule hojaaye….I take your leave!! Sayonara! 🙂
