My first Rainy day off in mumbai....



04th July

As usual.. the mobile alarm rang.. at 7 o'clock.. i put it off.. bring mobile
near to me and again.. went to sleep zzzzzz .... the usual practice.. sleeping.
woke up again.. click a button on mob.... to c the time.. its 08:08... me to my
self.. wake up gagan..or u will b late for the office.. i wake up..

The sound of heavy rains coming from the outside.. i open the window to c.. how heavy it is raining.. hmm its very heavy.. okie.. so wat.. it will stop in some time n i will have to go the office.. so goes in the bathroom to take the shower.. come out.. okie .. the rains are still heavy...wait ..i vl go by nxt bus... i call my colleague. ..he comes early to the office so he must b in the office.. ya he is.. he pick up the fone..and i ask.. "so reached to the office .. how many others are there ".. the reply "i am the only one here" ...lolzzz gr8.. that means me also not coming to the office...

My room partner who has already took off on yesterday is getting ready to go..wears his.. new raincoat...this time he will not get wet.. finally he brought a raincoat for himself..me laid back in rest..its off for me today.. but still if rains stop till 10:15 i vl go to the office..knock on door.. my room partner is back.. completely.. wet.. he says "there is no way of going to the office the water is all around even on the western express highway..BMC ppl are asking ppl not to go that way"... yipee so no office today..its final..

The other room partner wakes up.. and we make the TEA... how pleasing it is to have hot tea in rains..the discussion goes on .. no one is willing to go office the.. rains are still heavy.. and roads are blocked so .. no one will go to the.. office.. final.. but the other room partner whose has to leave for the Coimbatore .. soon.. changes mood as rains slow down.. and decides to go office.. i wish him luck n..."C u soon man".. ;)...

Okie now we both are hungry.. so wat to do... MAGGI... yes there nuthing as easy and fast to cook as Maggi.. wheather u lyk it or not.. it is the best option.. hot Maggi.... wat else u need in this rains..perfect...

Okie now starts the dark side of...rains.. cable is gone.. no TV...radio not wrking.. no music.. and worst of all No mobile network "GPRS" gone.. hell ... v r completely disconnected from the wrld..even if all the ppl are running out of mumbai v wont b informed..... without GPRS.. no net no chat.. no surfing.. sit back n relax..


Lazy me went to sleep.. i luv sleeping... woke up after 45 mins or so.. its arnd 1 o'clock .. my room partner is preparing KHICHDI to cook.. gr8...food atlast.. he cooks it up.. n i woke up to eat it..he makes it really vry well... so v are eating... in b/w i receive an call(the n/w is okey now but no GPRS..its problem of my area onyl..:( ) .. tlking n eating at the same time...

Now the its getting boring .. no means of entertainment.. so .. v decide lets go n watch movie... but as v had lunch jst now.. v were felling vry sleepy.. so decide to sleep.. n go to movie in the evening... i wake up to open the gate for the third roomie to come in.. n went to sleep
again.. n wake up again at 7 o'clock so no movie :(... the third roomie is cleaning.. kitchen.. m still feeling.. sleepy... thnk god the CABLE is back.... TV time.. n it has to b news.. evry channel is broadcasting abut mumbai's rain only.. they are jst projecting it too much although it rained only 200mm but all they need a BREAKING news.. but a news chanel admits.. "a viewer must understand a normal rainy day is not a breaking news" -- NDTV..bravo...

Chai time again ..its arnd 8:30...the day was vry lazy n boring.. :( ... now v three decide to cook some food .. so v go to bring chapati n sum vegetables.. cook d food and its ready... v 3 start eating .. its the first time v three are havin dinner together..n sabji is damm gud .. tlking n eating n laughing .. n watching TV..wich v missed whole thru day...

Now comes the best part of .. day ... rather night.. its
12:30... its football time.. yipeeee... m really caught in the football fever... Italy vs Germany ... the match goes on vry exciting.. both side are fighting.. vry hard.. ITALY got soom vry gud chances to goal.. but bad luck... the 90 mins over no goal... its extra time.. 4 mins left.. its goona b penelty shoot out only.. 0-0 still... but the things turn..vry dramatically...n Italy shoots first goal.. .. yipee.. Germans are gone.. 2 min left.. and one more goal by Italians... wonderful shot.. n they r in FINALS... m really under footie fever..

This was the best part of the day.. otherwise it was really a boring day..its
3 o'clock now.. switch of the lights.. n go to the sleep.. i have to go for the office 2morrow.. and follow my daily routine..

Alltogather it was really boring day.. ..xcpet the football match.. nxt time i vl think one more time before taking off...

hmmm.. itni baarish :O:O... monsoon had to hit delhi on 29 june..its 5 july now..and not a single drop of hope..*sigh*...the only rains which we had here was on last tuesday, 27 june, for about 2 hrs in the early hrs of the day.. and it rained so heavily that withinn 10 minutes.. water logging started.. and led to traffic jams..it took me 2 hrs to reach to my institute as compared to 35-40 minutes daily...that time the whole delhi was happy with the hope that we might get some rains this time..but no.. all our hopes are washed away by our sweat in this sun...but we r still waitin...and waise u know what... we r humans.. we r never happy with what we have.. if it wud hv been raining rt now.. so there wud hv been problems like that in mumbai.. and yup... i wudnt hv been able to post a comment here coz my net goes with the first drop of rain... for some stupid reason...( my netwaala saays that they dont have water proof bvoxes on poles so they cant help it.. and he had ordered new boxes since past 7 months.. but i wonder why havent they reached here...X( )...
so...now see the comparison b/w the two major metros of India...having the 2 extreme weather condition...work is going on...ppl here have that "never say die" spirit in them.....so... 3 cheers for the "city that never sleeps-Mumbai".. and "dilwaalon ki dilli".. and actually the whole of India...afterall its UNITY IN DIVERSITY that we r known for.!!
yippeee...!! :).. JAI HIND!!
