I'll be back!!


Hey wait!! I'm not going away. I'm not taking a break from blogging (though I dunno what you'd call not posting for 15 days :-p). I know I haven't posted for a while and that was because of a lack of ideas. For once the talkative me was stuck on what to post. Moreover the fact that I was busy and couldn't take time of about 2 hours for blogging on a workday also helped the cause a bit ;-). The main problem was anyways that I didn't know what the heck to blog about...

I thought I'll blog on my daily routine of working from home which I've gotten used in about 10 months now. But it sounded too boring. Make breakfast -> Say tata to Sri as he leaves for work -> Eat breakfast -> Check mails -> Go for my regular workout -> Check mails some more (after all what other work is there for a s/w engineer ;-) :-D) -> Take my bath -> Start work -> Have lunch -> Continue work until Sri lands home. Not much to write. Maybe I'll think of making it interesting and will blog in detail someday (Do I hear a set of "Oh No"s? :-D).

I also thought of posting a poem. Have a vague idea in my mind for a poem. Its very nice, but you can't really push it. Poems have to flow from thoughts and vague formats are just not sufficient. Especially when you are blocked for a post, the ideas just don't want to come! Don't you pity poor me? :(.

I saw Rang De Basanthi last weekend and thought of posting about it. Even told a friend that I'll probably post about it. But there are gazillions of Rang De Basanthi reviews already on the gazillions of blogs :(. There's nothing I have to say that those don't already talk about :(. But yeah, I do want to say it was fun sitting in the theatre and watching it. For a small town like Lexington, the theatre was house-full and we had students shouting, whistling and cheering. At one point, it felt like I was back in a theatre in India :). Also another point is that my faith in Aamir is back. After Mangal Pandey, I must admit I was apprehensive. But Rang De Basanthi just shows why I have been a fan of his since Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak, since 1988 :). I have never shifted loyalties for 18 years (!!) :). I have heard some reviewers saying he's too old for this kind of a role etc, but there's nobody else who could have played it this good. Dil Chahtha He, though a story of 3 friends ended up being an Aamir movie. But Rang De Basanthi is no way an Aamir movie. The way he shares the screen with so many new actors is amazing to say the least and the new young actors have lived up to it :). Ok thats it, no more about RDB ;-).

Hmm again I thought I'll post a few pictures and write a post on the few favourite things I love about and around my apartment. But its been cloudy the whole week and I haven't even been able to take the pictures. Just how bad, can my bad luck get? ;-). After all these explanations (more like excuses) if you still haven't felt pity for me, then what can I say? Well, all I can say is that I'm sorry :(. But am posting now, amn't I? What are you cribbing about? :-p.

Finally coming to the title of the post, the "I'll be back!!" stands for I'll be back in India in the month of May for the whole month of May :-D. This finally is the post I've been waiting for :-D. Our tickets have finally arrived yesterday. We'll be leaving US on April 28th and reaching India by Apr 30th and we'll be leaving India on May 29th :). I know its still a few months away, but for a person who has waited to go back to India from Nov 2005, whats a mere couple of more months. Now I can't wait for the wait to finish :).

But it certainly won't be a vacation. We both need to get our Visas stamped. Have a whole lot of trips planned. Have our gruhapravesha planned. We need to spend some time with our both set of parents. A lot to do in a short while :(. Previously, we thought we might be going only for 3 weeks, but somehow things have worked out and we are getting an extra week. I guess this is the truth for an Indian living outside the country. You look forward so much to going back to India, but the reality will be that it will be for a short time. But atleast, you get that short time {sighs}. Once you get back, the waiting starts all over again :(.

Right now, I'm so looking forward to it. It'll be exactly an year since I came here. So I'll be celebrating my anniversary of coming to US in India, see the irony :-D. Oh God, I've so much to do, hopefully everything will go fine and as planned :). There's still so much of shopping to do and what not to buy. So much to plan and think about. So many tick marks :-D. Have I done this? Tick. Have I done that? Tick. Oh my God, I haven't done that. No tick ;-). Phew!!

Meanwhile, your faithful reporter Deepthi will keep updating the progress whenever she can. For now, over and out! :-D.
