I've been away from my blog for a while now and i have been thinking why i've become so anti social. I came to the conclusion that my over-demanding college besides my part time job have been puttin me away from my blog. Not that i'm complaining. But, there's also the truth that i've suddenly hit upon a writer's block and do not know what to write. But today, the angst and the block melted away as i was on my way to college...
I was running late and was urging my father to go faster. We were on a bike. It was 7:55 a.m. I was supposed to be in class at 8. College was still ten minutes away.
I was perspiring. My eyes looked on and i wanted to mentally reach class before i physically could so that i don't loose out on attendance! Already, one week into the new semester i didn't have 80% (lolz.. thanks to sum bunking)...
Anyway... as my father and i were stuck at a peculiarly long signal, i suddenly hear a voice "Hey long time no see. How are you?". It seemed to be coming from my left and seemed to be pointed to toward me. I turned around to see an auto driver giving me a toothless smile.
Here i was thinking i've never seen this guy before in my life when i realised he was looking past me at someone on my right. I whisked around to find another auto driver givin the same toothless smile. This was their conversation, between which i twisted and turned my head so fast i got a sprained neck!
Right: Yes, long time. How are u, bro-in-law?
Left: Fine, bro-in-law. How are the kids?
RIght: All fine. Why haven't you come home?
Left: Alot of 'savari' as of now. Business is good. No time.
Right: Drop by this sunday.
Left: I will ask her and tell you
Right: Ok. Where are you heading now?
Left: Shankar nethralaya
Right: What?!?!? *looking mortified* .Anything wrong with your eyes?
Left: (laughing) no no. Customer.
Right: Thank god
Me: *Why the hell is the signal still red!*
Left: I want your number. Heard you got a new cell phone
Right: Yes yes. I bought yesterday. A nokia express 'paatu' phone.
Left: N? What is that? How much is it?
Right: It's a big nice black phone. Very new model. Song will come nice. It's 10,000 rs. only.
Signal turns green
