A classic dream :)

A classic morning. I enjoyed my classic combination of pineapple and mint smoothie with a classic AB pictured song on the background - Jaha teri yeh nazar hai. Of-course it was combined with cozy chat with mom and my elder. Rest were enjoying the weekend sleep, which is usually a stretched one. ( Noooo! I am not complaining; I have had many of those as well :D ) 
With the song lingering my thoughts and lips having captured them, I walked to my younger, who was still dozing off with glory. I kissed her forehead. You see, best things in life are free; one being stealing a kiss from a sleeping innocent kid. With that best-thing-experienced smile on my face, I tweet into her ears-"Do you know the time, chinnu?". Turning her back to me, she said "What?". "It's almost 10" I asserted trying to turn her to my side. With a wide, bright smile, she said "Oh! its a dream?", eyes still shut. "You are smiling, that means you had a sweet dream? Is it?" I quipped, trying to take her into my lap. 

"A beautiful one!" she said with eyes open, smile intact and hands trying to embrace me. 

"Oh, you saw me", I tried to be naughty. 

"hmmmh huummmm" came a reply with a nodding head to say no. 

"Theeen, you saw you and me playing togather?" I continued. 

"hmmmh huumm" a same reply from her. 

"Then where you eating ice-creams?" I continued. ( Previous 2 nights have been ice-cream treat for kids; with maama(uncle) having returned from US after a  long-inevitable-stuck there and ice-creams being stocked in the refrigerator. I too indulged in some last night; that of-course took me on a short guilt trip )

"hmmmh huumm" came the reply again. 

Finally I gave up "You only tell me then?" 

"I will tell you later." she hugged. 

"Noooo, you are not doing that, I dont want to continue with my guessing work until then" I objected with a no look on my face.

"hmm, I saw a small house with a biiiiiiig garden." she smiled.

My no-look, instantly changed into a wide, hearty smile with that response. "That would me my beautiful dream as well." I said, hugging her back.

"Also, I saw a small chocolate house, in that small house." she added.

My smile now turning into laugh, "Thatz not a dream. The refrigerator is full of chocolates that mamma(uncle) has got. Its a chocolate house anyways now."

She could not control her laugh either. She was quick anyways and said "Oh, amma, the house of chocolate that I saw in the dream was a different one. You see, thatz a one which has no limits on kids. You see its a healthy one kinds where we kids are not restricted to have only a few.

We both burst into laughter and I thought that would be a classic dream. :)

The kitchen I fell in love with!

It was a cloudy morning, as I watched the sky through the balcony window after getting up. I hoped Mr. Sun to be a little kind to spread his shine that day and rushed to finish my morning miscellaneous work. By 6:15 am, I checked my mobile to find a missed call. I did not bother to call back since I was already on my way to the lady’s house who had called up. I reached her house by 6:30. am. She was busy finishing up her morning stuffs and took another 5 mins and then got into the passenger seat of my car.  “I called you up, and then I called your land line. Your mother informed that you have already started.” she said. “I thought I will talk to you in person since I already had started, hence did not bother to call back.” I replied. “I was wondering if you would make it or not. I almost had dropped the idea of participating, later when your mother said that you have started, I hurried up.” She said. “hmm.....frankly I went to bed late. My daughter was in a playful

Bengaluru Calling! the pull factors of migration.

(Migration to Bengaluru - how the problem of population due to migration be solved was a topic of assignment for our creative writing class. Bangalore being home for me this is how I look at it.) It’s not every place on earth where bright sunlight lashes on the face and the cold breeze chills the body at the same time. Not every place can exercise diversity. From early morning variety dosa to late night smoke breaks; From temple walks to bike rides; From pool side beer to traffic in the burning sun; From non-stop chats to serious weekend talks; From street beggars to IT jobbers; From theatres to multiplex cinemas one can see extremes in any aspect chosen. Such a free city is ‘Namma Bengaluru’, and that is why a lot of people hope to come here. So, evidently there are many economic, social, and physical pull factors why people migrate to Bengaluru.  The first thing is a ‘brain-drain’ of IT hub. However, Bengaluru is not only IT capital but also capital of aeronautics, automot
