Love Undefined - Chapter 3

Take me to the Index

Previous Chapter : Love Undefined Chapter 2

Happy birthday ma! It was Tarun on line.He is always the first person to wish her on her birthday and the tradition has never been altered.
Tarun, when are you planning to come to India? Its been 2 years since you got married and you are yet to visit us, Radha sounded excited.Whenever she talks to her son, her first dialogue always remained the same. When are you planning to visit us and Tarun answered with utmost patience every time he was asked that question.
Ma listen, its really hectic here and I am trying my best to get a month off. So please bear with me. I will definitely visit India soon. And did you like me gifts? he asked. 
Oh yeah gifts! Loved them. I never knew you noticed so much about us. He had gifted her an album. A journey till date since the day she got married. Precisely her journey with her husband. I got all overwhelmed when I saw that. And the other gift, well your dad is fiddling with it since morning and he still doesn't know how to operate it.
Ma, its an iPad , Tarun laughed. Since you have trouble using PC, Priya thought this would make things easy for you. Operating it is pretty easy.
Oh let me see. I never get a hang on all these things you know, Radha sighed.
Tarun cut in. Ma, there is something important I have got to tell you. Assume its your additional birthday gift, Tarun blurted out.
And there is more? Radha couldn't control her excitement. Tarun please spill the bean soon and don't keep me guessing, she spoke hastily.
Ma, we had been to the hospital today and the news is that you are gonna become a Grandma soon, Tarun said.

My journey with Bhumi :)

I  don't really remember since when I have been planning to pen down my journey with Bhumi. For people who do not know what Bhumi is, Its an NGO for underprivileged kids. We at Bhumi enlighten those kids on various subjects which include Maths,Science, Computer and such. For more details, kindly visit Bhumi :)

August 27,2011

          It was 5:30 in the evening. That being the first day of my experience as a teacher/volunteer or however you would like to phrase it as, I was super excited and equally anxious. Before I could take the last few steps to reach the place, I took a quick walk down the memory lane. I remembered the 1st time I heard of Bhumi and since that day on, I badly wanted to be a part of it. So that day my long term wish was coming true and hence my excitement knew no bounds. I reached the place a little late because of my so-called-punctual-friend :P He was the one who was taking me there and so I had to wait for about 15-20 minutes for him to arrive. On reaching the place, I had a formal introduction with other fellow volunteers. Not being an extrovert has its own disadvantages. So I stood there silently surveying the kids around. When suddenly one kid came to me and spoke, Akka unga paer enna? (What is your name?) I was pleasantly surprised and I answered back, Archana, un paer? (Archana. And what is your name? ) and from that moment, I became one of them. All the other kids came and spoke to me and I lost the feeling that it was my 1st day. They had accepted me as their akka (didi).

I love you too, Zindagi! :)

Hello there! :)  Its been a while hasn't it , well I can imagine some of you yawning and rolling your eyes. Ok I think I will just cut...
