Rendered speechless

A conversation with someone I have not been in touch with for years now. Today she pinged me on gmail. She lives in Bangalore.

R: u came down sometime?
me: no it is quite sometime now almost 2 years
R: ok.. Life has become that tough?
me: why tough?
R: that no holiday plans
or India is not a great location for your holiday?

I am still wondering how to answer that….

    Heeeeheeeeee….we get tht all the time.

    I put on this saaaaaad face & agree “No money da;-(”

    And make the friend/relative/aquaintance feel like a low-down earthworm for asking such a sensitive question.

    LOL. Actually many people living in India sadly seem to think that India is not a great location. Maybe that thought prompted the reply? I remember a surprised comment from someone before we visited Hampi. Hostory dekhna hai to Hampi kyun, Rome jao, she said. I couldn’t beat that πŸ˜€

    Bins: I think it was a medley of touching wrong chords πŸ™‚

    Nancy: Wonderful idea! should try that next time.

    Rash: ah… Manu and I are still squabbling – he has a Hampi and I have a Ladakh. This December, we will spend time in Kerala I think visiting the complete state. (yes… we will be there December-Jan for 4 weeks).

  6. rash says:

    Tell him Ladakh is photo worthy too πŸ™‚

    Rash: Oh! he really wants to go there… right now we are trying to decide between Rajasthan/Orissa in December. I wanted to do Calcutta but as he has already seen it, he is not keen (in anycase I would prefer to go without his parents to Calcutta so that I can eat fish ;)).

    Nancy: Yes πŸ™‚ but you have the explaination in the new post inspired by your questions.

    Come to Bombay, come to Bombay. We’ll abandon Parmanu and go eat QUANTITIES of fish.

    Whoops, that’s from aka Kahini.
