Woh bhi kya din the...





The snap was taken about 5 years ago, when all 4 of us (dad, mom, Darsh and me) had gone to Udupi for holidays. We drove to Udupi, so this photo was taken on the Shiradi ghat section. We were posing for the photo all serious, when Darsh made some stupid comment which made us laugh out loud and he managed to capture it.

Dad came here on Friday and it feels so good :). We had been to Louisville on Saturday and this photo was taken there:




I feel like I'm with family again (I know, I know that Sri is my family now :-p). But I miss not having Darsh around me. It still feels so weird not to be the "four" we were..




(This pic was taken in Udupi on our India trip last year).

Why does the heart always long for more when it has so much?

Listening to: Wish you were here by Pink Floyd :(.

"How I wish, how I wish you were here.
We're just two lost souls
swimming in a fish bowl,
year after year,
Running over the same old ground.
What have we found?
The same old fears,
Wish you were here."

Hello Deepthi,
Just stepped across your blog and it gave me a humourous touch read. I must say it feel so good to jot down all those turning point of life. It is nice to know one more bangalorian. Great.

Why does the heart always long for more when it has so much? - if only man/woman were ever able to find the answer for this !!!
Such a nostalgic post!

hey babe!
i guess we always miss the good old days and long for a time the family is together as a unit in the same place- since it happens so rarely at this point in life - even 3 members out of 4 is great but then automatically makes the 4th badly missed. :) am sure you will cherish these occasions..

here's sending you and your baby tons of cheery thoughts :D

Sumana,

Welcome to my blog and good to know you too :).

Vidhya,

I wish we could set limits to the heart's needs, but sadly thats not possible..

TGFI,

Why do we miss the old days once they are gone? I mean, at this moment I don't really think I'd miss "today" somewhere in the future.. Very strange!

And thanks a lot for the cheery thoughts :).

TP,

The thought somehow resonates with everyone, I guess..

Orchid,

I told you that my dad was a collegue of your dad's, so he might have visited you at your house :-D.

I guess the feeling of not being the "same old" family will continue for a long time..

Hey I'm not able to find your profile at all to see your email id. You can mail me at my id (in my profile) for any of the questions..


Canary retorted...

You are writing straight from the heart, as always! :)

Ohh yes! I also get so nostalgic when I think of the times of fun that I spent with my family before marriage and how we 4 sisters would have so much fun! Now with all of us married and living in 4 corners of the world we haven't all been together in almost 4 years now. *sigh*
