Weekend trip to Trivandrum

Last weekend [ 31-Aug-07(started), 1-Sep-07 and 2-Sep-07(returned)] trip to Trivandrum went very satisfactorily. All the objectives of my trip were met also I could help Uncle and Aunt by delivering some goods to their daughter.

I am really worried about this trip from long time.It got postponed couple of times due to unavailability of tickets and all.I am thinking to go to Trivandrum from July but at last I could go now, at the end of August.I have been thinking how to bring my huge 4X6 Duroflex mattress, Computer table and chair all the way from Trivandrum to Bangalore.Also my orthodontic treatment went for toss as I didn’t visit any doctor since 24-Jan-07, the day before I started to Bangalore.

At last I found GATI to move my goods.Though they charged 2700 INR including packing charges of 1000 INR. I had no other option and am thinking their service will be good.I will confirm that once I receive my goods in Bangalore.I hope my goods will be intact :-))

Doctor visit also went well and he didn’t charge me anything extra for this visit as I paid him already.

I stayed for 2 days completely at Uncle’s house. Aunt even packed me lunch and dinner for my return journey as usual. I was very disappointed to see Uncle depressed for the reasons which are beyond his control.He was very different from how he was when I was there.He became weak both physically and mentally though Aunt is quite normal.Not that she has now worries but she could cope up with the situation I guess.But Uncle changed completely.He is unnecessarily worrying for smaller things.I sincerely pray God to help such a good people to get rid of all their troubles.

I couldn’t forget Jacob Uncle’s house where I spent my second stint in Trivandrum.That house gave me many memories to cherish.That is why I felt nostalgic when I entered that house to pack my belongings.I could still see all my BT and BW magazines, my Laptop and Furniture bills lying there.

The only two things I can never forget about Trivandrum are: [1] The love and affection shown by Philips Uncle and Elcy Aunt by treating me as their son [2] The house they rented to me.

Also in the return journey I was a bit irritated by people who didn’t buy reservation ticket but boarded my bogie.Cant help sometimes.My bogie was so much crowded because of them.Now that I was in happy state of mind, they couldn’t disturb me much.

I was surprised when Doctor Vinod Krishnan told that he found his name in one of my earlier blog posts when he was searching for his name in Google.

I should definitely visit Kerala and Trivandrum in particular along with Sailu sometime.

Moved to new Home

Just 2 hrs back I shifted everything from my old home to new home again in Electronics City in Bangalore suburb.This new home is also close to office. Just 15 minutes of brisk walk from work.

As Sailu is in Vemagiri, I had to do all alone and I did it finally.Felt very tired.Carried so much of weights to second floor all by myself. Ok. Past is past.Finally it is worth the effort.

What we feel we gained by moving to new home:

  1. This is brand new house and we are the first tenants.
  2. Looks better than old house in terms of flooring , fittings and other finishings.
  3. No need to walk on the muddy road.
  4. 24 hrs water supply.
  5. Water flows in kitchen sink tap unlike in old house.
  6. Bigger kitchen and bath room.
  7. One wash basin is provided in the hall.

Our previous home has none of the above comforts.So we thought its worth spending 250/- more for rent and 5K ( total 15K advance) more as advance.

Till yesterday I was worrying if I could do this today.So at last its past now and next challenge is to finish the Trivandrum trip successfully. I already fixed appointments with the doctor and parcel agent.Once I finish that trip too I can rest for sometime and concentrate again on other important things.

More about the trip once I come back on Monday.

Hyderabd Blasts

I was, for the first time in my life, really worried a lot after reading news about blasts in today’s Eenadu.

Many innocent people who had been to Lumbini Park and Gokul Chat just to have some good time with their loved ones became victims of some merciless terrorist master plan.So much of grief.

May their souls rest in peace.
May God grant strength to their loved ones.
May God save my Country and it’s people from these kind of heinous acts!!!
