Rewind Please -II

There are some who bring out the twinkle in your eyes, and others who just light up our entire body [ok, now don’t ask me what that means, you need to feel it to know what am talking about] ... So, anyways, as i got back from Blore on Friday, spoke to mom, quick updates and she then mentioned the magic words "Sunder mama and all are in town,... ".. I dint hear a word beyond that... "Has Aswin come? Tell tell ma" was all i remember screeching...

Yes, of course, but he is here just for a few days... she replied....

Woww, ok, so where are they staying? Do they have a local number? Fwd it to me plss... i screamed excitedly...

Hang on, here it is... "9.............."

Ok, bye!! [I had hung up and was already dialling the number mom gave]

Ringing.... waited with bated breath...

"Hellow... "

"Hi, Sunder mama... Happy Birthday... How are u???? Till when are you all here? When did you land? When can we meet?.... " i ranted away.....

"Who's this?"

"It’s me, Aarti"

Hieee... eppadi irukka?? Gosh, been so long Na... here, talk to Radika ... she's been dying to see you......
........ And then after 2mins chatting with aunty, i was like - err, is Aswin there, aunty?

Hang on, he is grabbing the phone from me...she replied and disappeared...

"Hieeeeeeeeeeeeeeee kiddo, how u been?" [Imagine a zillion decibels of happiness in your voice and double it...that’s how i sounded]

Heyy.. Am good, how are u? Looking fwd to seeing you tomorrow... better turn up..... Wow, this is amazing.... [We spoke for like a good half hour before hanging up]

On Sunday, i woke up happy chirpy, got dressed and headed to the mandap... and the minute i saw him, and aunty and uncle - we lost it... a bunch of tight tight hugs and oodles of love exchanged....

It’s been ages since i saw them all, and man, it felt good meeting them... after all these yrs, and the love/bond still remains :)

We caught up on our lives, got introduced to rest of their family, his cousins and best of it was people walking up to me/mom/dad asking us how we are related to the family.. And our reply was always - we are not related, but as good if not closer than family....

Even though years have gone by, even though we are no longer kids, the love and affection continues to grow along as well... this is one family i know i will look fwd to no matter when/where/what and will make time for as well... infact, my sis has gotten quite close to them as well, sweet thing... and Aswin is like the big bro to her..heehaw...


I keep threatening him on Fb n otherwise that i shall unleash all hidden secrets about him ... lolz...


A bit of flashback here....

I spent about 6yrs in this small town in South Tamil Nadu- Tirunelveli... Dad worked at India Cements and we were just settling in... That is when Sunder mama also joined ICL, and i think he had just gotten married...

So, dad brought them home and that is how the friendship between the families began...


We would go to the club together - play shuttle badminton, go out for dinner, movies, spend time in each others home etc... and then Aswin was born.... brat that he was, practically spent all the time after my coming home from school at our place.. or i was at their place.. he loved my mom's cooking, and would freak out on pachcha arisi dosai [ raw rice dosa]... and aunty used to make yummy cookies, cake, noodles with veggies, boiled beetroot [yes, that was where i was introduced to these kinda food items] and our families got super close....


Few yrs later, we moved to Chennai, while they remained in Tirunelveli, but still remained in touch with them.. and now Sunder mama has changed jobs, and Aswin has gone to USA for further studies[infact working now] they all live abroad, but we mail/talk/chat and meet whenever they are in town... tunder mama and aunty also had twins few years later -a boy and a girl who we dote on just as much, and they with my sister .....

All the time we spent with each other, brought Aswin and me really close, and its a lovely bond we share!!! Possessive about each other, always looking out, caring, worrying, and some more.............. [Touch wood].....

Such Sweet memories.. they dont come often, but when they do, it’s a treasure!!
