Changes

Obviously a trip to Mangalore and that too my first visit to the Mangalore Teru merits a blog post. However, you got to know that would be too predictable… So though I am gonna write about Mangalore, it will be about something other than the Teru.

So what am I gonna write about? How much Mangalore changes every time I go there…

There was a time when wearing jeans made me feel uncomfortable as I walked around the city… Now the dressing sense has changed to the extent that I feel like I am walking on Pune’s MG Road. In fact I sometimes feel Mangalore has become quite the fashion destination. A few years ago, I had bought a top and trousers from there and my neighbor, Priyasha, was quite impressed by both.

Then this time during this Teru there was this guy with his shoulder length hair under a hair band à-la Abhishek Bacchan (OK old style I know… but fashion caught up soon enough right?) Then he had this tattoo on his arm. He had that over all look of one of those princes on one of those TV shows… (Before you start getting ideas, I was not ogling at him… when you see something so unexpected, you DO tend to notice)… I asked my brother about the changing trends and he starts laughing… A month ago, Tejaswini, he says, I had shoulder length hair and I was the one wearing the hair band… Well I can believe that. Vijendra is quite the trend setter. Tall and lanky my cousin brother does have a distinct sense of fashion…

The malls of Mangalore are definitely bigger than the average Pune malls. Pune has grown too much for there to be enough place to build a huuuge mall.

Definitely makes me think, maybe the next time I go to Mangalore, I have to dress-up to not look dowdy…

Rewind

Its been an year since Shraddha and I stayed over at Purnima's... One year since the maggi debacle... Purnima, Shraddha and I met up for the first time this year... We had decided to meet on January 1st, but the plans fell through. So meeting today after so long was fun as usual... We chatted for so long, Purni's mum and my mom called us up asking... Did you come for the picnic or did you come to sit outside.. well you know how moms are... saying we came to sit outside and chat was NOT an option... In we went...

Well as usual there were loads of games... I won a prize as did amma... The most fun game as usual was Housie or Tambola...

Going back to the topic of last year's stay over.. am I sounding like Jodi Picoult go back and forth back and forth between the past and the present... Yeah high hopes for me, to consider myself a great writer... and high hopes for you if you think I am gonna write about the stay over AGAIN... I had already written about it before (Check the Bass do minute blog)...

But I could write about last year's GSB Republic Day picnic, which was what we had gone to today... They changed the date from 26th Jan to the first sunday of February from this year... not republic day silly... 8-| the picnic... Last year was all the more fun because we made new friends... A lot of our KIP friends had come in... Priyanka Pai, Ananth anna, Sankalp, Abhang and Nishanth... We also recruited a new member in the KIP gang... Sharmila... One year and so much has changed... Priyanka was placed somewhere out of Pune last time I chatted with her... Sankalp is in USA never having come to stay in Pune... Abhang had come for a few minutes today... he said he is hardly in Pune these days... his job is keeping him away from here... Nishanth is in Hyderabad... It was his birthday yesterday and I realised he has ALREADY left when his number came up as not in use... Sharmila is engaged and soon to be married... I joined KPIT... Purnima gave her French Diplome exams yesterday... Unfortunately to say... I have got utterly bored of Orkut and KIP :( ... Which reminds me, Purnima has given up ownership of KIP and left orkut...

A lot has happened over the year... Just seems that time kind of flies when in reality... an year is made of 365 days... 365 days when anything can happen and life as you know it.... might just change....
