Weekend -- Quite different!!!!!!!

Had a interesting weekend this time... Wouldnt say it was good or bad... coz it was both.... A litlle nice a little boring... But on the whole 2 days in Mysore [yeah dint go home this weekend due to official reasons, and yes, not gonna write a bit about office :)]

Well on saturday, me n friend[G...] had lunch and then were just thinking what to do?? Where to go??? We just landed up in an argument... I got furious and said u go ur way and i'll be on my way....

I walked away from the byk to the opposite lane and kept walking when my friend came with the vehicle... i just said "leave me alone for some tim"e and went[ i can be very harsh at times]. So G too went off and me being very very furious... kept on walking....

Was near KD Road [Mysore] and thought y not go near the campus[university campus] lake.... Its very beautiful out there and may be my temper would just go down :)

And so the gr8 me started walking. Could have taken an auto which would have cost me around 10 or 15 rupees,... but no, i was very adamant....

To reach that place i had to first go to a Hunsur road parallel to KD Road... parallel in the sense, it had a minimum of 10 lanes in between or even more.... I dint bother to count. :)
As i Kept walking saw college students comming walking... oh how much i missed my college days :)

Kept walking looking around... Girls walking in groups... guys trying to show off their new byks to their friends... trying out a few hairstyles on the byk's mirror... trying to impress the girls.... Girls chatting about movies... or making fun of how the guys are trying to impress them... or talikng about the classes on Monday... etc etc etc.... As i walked along saw a few students eating Kulfi..... yummy my mouth started watering......... and yes by now i had walked more than 1 km. And my legs had started aching... coz i was wearing new chappals and feeling a bit tired as it was very sunny....

Finally by the time i reached Hunsur Rd... I was half dead... wanted a place to sit...Luckily saw a small park there and found a bench... Just went and sat there. For 5 min... was just looking at the traffic... People were so busy running around in life... Hmm... Just looked around in the park... Nobody was there just the plants,flowers and me....Felt like singing "Akele hain to kya gham hai..........."

Well... after a few mins came back to reality..... walked and walked until i found the entrance to the university road... Hey.... on the way found Jackfruits........ yummy my favourite fruit:)... bought a few peices and then kept walking looking at people around....

Finally entered one of the gates into the lake... To reach the becnh to sit and enjoy had to walk another km i think.... Kept walking, suddenly phoe rang.... It was G to enquire where i am.... I was a bit rude... but then told that i was in this place..... G was a bit busy, so he told me will meet me sometime by 4 or 5. It was just 1.30 then.... I had started walking at 12.30 or so.......
I just looked and saw that it was looking very beautiful..... The lake.... the trees.... behind it and far away a hill which formed the background. Wow.... What a wonderful pic it would be......... I just take out the camera from my bag and just when i am about the click i realize "NO BATTERY".... booohooo.... I felt like throwing the camera in the lake... but then the view was so pleasent that my anger dint last long.... So i neatly kept the camera inside and walked along.... eating Jackfruits..... Though they weren't very sweet.... the weather, the cool breeze just made the jackfruit sweet for me :)

Well to reach the bench i had to walk atleast another 20 mins... But had no regrets... All alone... cool breeze, lake by my side... birds chirping. For some time i forgot if i was in a city... for sometime i forgot if i was in this world...... It was so amazing... The sky was cloudy by now.... I was just about to reach the bench.... just got a plop on my head.... it was a huge drop......It had started drizzling... now i dint want to go back home.... I wanted to sit n enjoy the beauty..... So went in search of a bench which had something on top to protect me from rain... the benches there were below trees.... small tress...oops i mean short tress..... Sat there and just typed this msg out to my friend...

Cool Breeze turns to Wind...
Dry sand turns wet....
The calm lake turns wavy
Cloudy sky turns clear
Plop plop fall the water drops....
Hey dint u understand...... Its raining.....

Well this lasted only for 10 mins.... it was a little more than drizzle.... but after it stopped.... the weather somehow wasnt as good as it was... It had become more sunny.... or maybe i was facing the west...dunno.... well still sat there for an hour more and then finally left the place around 3.45 or 4.....

Well it was quite an experience coz i normally dont go alone.... either i am at home when i am furious or somewhere where there are lot of people....

Well after all this,I wanted to go for a movie....... So dragged my friend along for Parineeta............. Nice,tendor movie... I liked it....

Not gonna give a review about the movie too... But will say... its a nice sensitive movie... if anybody is in for dhishum dhishum... its a no no....

Well... I thought i'll write about the whole weekend.... But about Sunday....... Will write some other day... coz did some interesting things that day too :)

Visithra said...

Falling leaves - nice change:))

walking endlessly does take the anger away huh :)))

Art said...

Template change -- thanks to meetu , got the pic from her :)

Smyta,
Well dunno how and what made me write the msg :) I loved the songs too...

Somu,
Well... that was a very memorable walk so couldnt help posting it ;)
Sunday post will be up very soon... havent even started writing it....

Manoj,
Well not taking an auto.... I wanted to punish myself for being short tempered... but then dint know i would get so much with walking :)

vivhyd,
The walk surely cooled down my temper... I was concentrating moer on the surroundings.. so no time to think abt my anger...

Karthik,
Walking surely helps... mainly coz u can observe a lot...
It is the Mysore University... If u have been there... u would seen the amphi theatre.. Lake is in front of it...
Msg--- i typed... I found that to be rhyming... :)
Girl in Parineetha is very very pretty.
Most welcome for my comments :)

Gayathri,
Changed the template yday:) Was waiting for a proper Leaf pic and just got it thru meetu's blog. :)
Patch up with friend was done that day itself... Went for the movie with same friend... My anger doesnt last longer... Temper goes up soon comes down sooner... :)

Visithra,
Thank u :)
Walk surely takes away anger... Trust me...

Karthik L G said...

arathi , did u observe something..i bet all of u have
if not ..doesent the leaf look like the face of a dog in general and that of a golden retriver in particular :)

Art said...

hey not a dog... Its a lion or a tiger... not very sure of it... But yes its one of the 2... just look at the eyes... cant be a dog's eyes ;)

Karthik L G said...

i thought so too ..but for me its a golden retriver ;)

Art said...

haha... okies sir.... U view it as a Golden retriver... Me as a lion or a tiger --- the majestic one :)
;)
Well this shows how we want to see things too... i mean certain ambiguous things... Certain views should be left to the induvidual... only then can we enjoy the beauty :)

Unknown said...

anger is the one most dangerous thing for anyone. it can break relationships in one instant.
your descriptions of the post-argument time is really detailed and i found it really good. nice write up. hope you sort things out with your friend.

Art said...

srinivas,
Well i think my post became too detailed... I have tried to put in almost most of what i experienced at that time...
And as far as patching up with friends go----- i just melt like ice.....
I get heated up very soon... but melt sooner as i have mentioned before.....

I was surely angry with my friend... but as my friend left... anger was there but it was on me... Me getting angry.... thats the reason i walked...
Cant remain angry for long :)

Gangadhar said...

Whenever I get angry..i too do the same thing you've done Arati..But i'll go on my vehicle aimlessly....I don't wanna argue on the same issue for quite a long time..hope that's the reason..
Nice post..

ss said...

hi there, some nice experience u had there in Mysore. But when I visited the place, I found it pathetic, over crowded and all that. I was in the old part of the city maybe, and I didnt research before the visit cuz it all happened so fast. Am just a bit surprised the way u described the place. Was it that beautiful?

Unknown said...

well, detailed descriptions are very difficult to put down in writing. you seem to have that innate capability :)
even i've seen people with very short temper. they flare up at the slightest cue. but sometimes it hurts to see that someone we care so much abt, get angry without a reason worth that much of anger. every argument can be sorted out by talking rationally.
but its also true that when angry, its difficult to think rationally, so taking some time off is the best way to go...

Fundoo said...

Ahem ahem! Walking in a drizzling rain, carelessly, fearlessly, in solitude, humming some favorite song... sounds amazing! Full marks to you for bringing life to this piece of text! :)

Art said...

Gangadhar,
I walked... this was the first time... Other wise everytime i am angry i sulk in my room.. just realized that day going out not only brings u out of anger but even makes u more calm:)

Sonal,
Mysore is normally a very quite and calm place... They say its the best place for a retired people... Shops hardly open before 10 here... Mainly the best place for lazing around...
If u have gone to such a place... must be something like a market place or u must have visited during Navarathri time... Thats the time people flock to Mysore for the famous procession and palace...
The plcae i went is mostly part of the university... Very calm and peaceful place... U can find lots of places [not lakes] where it is calm in Mysore... The place as of such was very simple and calm, may thats y i found it beautiful..... just water and trees... Isnt it a beauty??

Hey seems like i am writing a post on Mysore... Will do that too some day...

Art said...

Srinivas,
It surely hurts... But the more we are close to a person.. the more open ur feelings with the person...So the other person knows u...and gives u time:) atleast thats wht people close to me do... Coz they know after a max of 10 mins.. i'll go back to them with a sorry look on my face :)
Anyway i have a good control over my temper if the person is not so close to me ... Must thank God for that :)

U can just say i am very pampered and love to be pampered ;)

Fun_da_Mental,
ahem ahem... thank u thank u claps.....:) :) ;)
