Crystals of sugar and my Life…..

As I was writing the last piece of code, a pop up spruces up from my office communicator

TGIF with Sunnys name at the top , soon Anupam, Shobhit, Satinder , Varun, Oj, Anirudh , Pawan, Ashutoshare also invited for group chat.

What is TGIF dude ? wrote Anirudh

Tujhe TGIF nahi pata ? wrote sunny

Are yeh TGIF nahi jaanta soon all just sprang up on Anirudh as if TGIF was as famous as PSPO.

TGIF means Thank God Its Friday wrote Varun

So here came Friday again and as usual it was time to chill and celebrate from sucking IT life.

Lets move out from office and get together at Ponnu Da Dhaba on East Coast Road

This was our favourite hot spot for weekly get together and the best place if you love non veg.

Satinder , yaar dont forget to call Maninder , Manjeet and Guptaji too Sunny sent the last message and close the chat session.

Everyone just finished off their work in office and scurried to our adda.

Chennai is one of those metros where you get the feeling of being in a alien country with all alien environment. Add to it is the hectic life of software engineers who are pissed off from their busy schedule .Luckily we had formed a group here with friends from different companies.

We made sure to have a weekly get together to dine and chill out,no doubt nobody liked to miss this weekly affair, making excuses to their bosses and girlfriends to be here.

Soon Satinder, Maninder and Manjeet came there on their Enfield with the thunderous noise which would make any bike lover go crazy.


They were soon followed by rest of the friends on their respective pulsars and cars.

Everyone had their own stories to share , the girl who was the hottest one in other team, recent movie released, plan to switch job ,discussion about the T20 matches, cursing our respective managers , chennai food, college life and all those stuff.

Amidst all these discussion we had been responsible for half a dozen chickens death , some pounds of rotis and salads and bucket full of lassi.


So bhai log whats next said Satinder. I saw my watch , it was 11 pm .

I feel like having a cup of tea said Shobhit.

Ok lets have it said Pawan.

Let me finish first dude, I want to have tea in Mahabalipuram said Shobhit.

For normal human beings it would have been a crazy idea to drive 90 Km for a cup of tea , which is easily available anywhere in city. But ours is no ordinary group , we are group of crazy fellows.

All jumped on theirbikes to drive for a cup of tea.

Yaar the weather is awesome today with full moon shining in the sky said Pawan

Kya mast maja ayega drive karne mein along the seashore I shouted

ECR is known for the beauty of sea admired from the road running parallel to it till Pondicherry.And if its full moon night the sea is more beautiful than ever. And for crazy people like us this was one of the excuses to drive along and enjoy the nature at its best.

Soon our bikes were zooming on the ECR road.

Loose control

Koi deewana kehta hai koi pagal samjhata hai

Yeh dosti hum nahi chodenge

Bolo tara tara

“Talli hua talli hua … yara dekho yara mera talli hua…”

“aaalll izzz wellll….”

All were singing in chorous at top of our voicesand driving while people watched as if we had committed some crime.

But who cared.

On a beautiful location we stopped and ran towards shore .All dragged each other into water and were splashing water on each other, feets in sands ,hands held by bonds of friendship, laughter and giggle all around. Suddenly there was vehicle approaching us with multiple halogen lights on it and siren ringing with top of the pitch.

Suddenly my eyes opened and I saw my room filled with smoke and the fire alarm ringing. I ran in the kitchen with smoke coming out of the tea pan and crystals of sugar lying beside. Here I was thousands of miles away from my friends in alien country all alone


I wondered whether it were crystals of sugar lying scattered or my life ??

      How Sweet! I love Halloween decorations that are not gory and scary as I still have a (somewhat) little guy at home. I love it without the spider but to make it less &##810;girly&28222; the spider is a nice touch. Thanks for all the beautiful and creative things you all share with us!

    so fuckin awesome.!! Read again n now i m feeling guilty of coming back home 😛

    I think that what you published was actually very logical.
    But, think about this, suppose you were to write a
    killer post title? I mean, I don’t wish to tell you how to run your blog, however suppose you added a title to
    possibly get a person’s attention? I mean Crystals of sugar and my Life..
    | Direct Dil se.. is a little boring. You ought to look at Yahoo’s
    home page and watch how they create news titles to get people to click.
    You might add a related video or a picture or two to grab
    readers interested about everything’ve written. Just my opinion, it could bring your posts a little bit more interesting.
