I Miss Thee...!!

It has been quite some time since I have penned down my thoughts. . I am rather guilty that this post should have been out earlier. Nevertheless, there is no wrong time to do the right thing. Well……!! Here is my share for this month.

Having been in Chennai for more than three years it is important for me to write about the place that has set my base. Now that I am sitting in US recollecting my memories, I miss all those persons whom I have been with, in Chennai. Here are the places (or) moments that left an indelible mark in my diary.

>> Sri Rama Krishna Math- The best place which we can’t miss in Chennai.
>> Beach- Walking along the sea shore along with my best friends and playing with the water from the ocean that keeps sweeping the shore. I have been mostly to Thiruvanmiyur and Besant Nagar Beaches which are the closest locations to my residence. Yet, I have visited others also.
>> T.Nagar- It’s very interesting to walk across the streets of T.Nagar during weekends, particularly in the evenings. We don’t find place to even walk along the way. Thank God…!! Now that there is a fly over constructed, the traffic is reduced by some amount.
>> OMR Road- OMG.. Three years back when I came to Chennai, this road has been terrible. Now that proper road has been laid it made the journey to office easy. Else, commuting to office is like a roller coaster ride.
>>Shopping at Spencers- Oh.. It’s better to mention ‘window shopping’ rather than simply shopping. Whenever I go to a movie played at Casino, I would be visiting Spencers. Spencers is a common meeting place for my friends to spend some time. I know…. It is the same for many folks working in Chennai.
>> ECR (East Coast Road)- When I think about ECR, I mostly get reminded of the various restaurants that are located there. As I have resided along ECR all the time, I moved mostly near to the hotels situated there. In the three and half year duration, I have been to almost each and every restaurant along ECR with my friends. My best option for cost and taste is Hotel Basera.
>> Watching ‘3 Idiots’ movie with my room mate Chaitu, sitting in the first row at Satyam theatre. We have bought two 10/- tickets for 50/- . It’s quite difficult to watch the movie sitting in the first row but that made my day… :)

I miss the hustle and bustle of the surroundings…. I miss the Chennai flavor….

When I talk about friends, one thing strikes my mind- Its very hard to build relationship and rather more difficult to break a relationship. Such is the relationship that I have built with many persons whom I am acquainted with, in Chennai. This bond always makes me think of the precious moments that I have spent with friends. If I go on writing about friends, I will be like a person in search of a place where the sky meets the earth. I hope you got my point here.

I am indebted to all my friends for the sweet memories that I shared. I miss you all....
