When I am drawling on my bed after a nap at noon, I heard the calling bell. Opened the door with half closed eyes. My relatives appeared before me and my sleep went off. You know, some relatives will be there just to remind us we are a WASTE FELLOW. The first thing they ask will be how are your studies? When they are speaking to my mom, I remained quite as my relatives pictured me as a silent,innocent girl. I just don’t want to change that. Then they told the reason for their arrival. Their daughters marriage was fixed. My parents will always be chanting their daughter’s name as she completed her MBBS and got free PG seat. Now she is done with her PG too and going to marry a Doctor. As they stay in Chennai my parents are worried to attend the function as they don’t know that place and language. I never understands that why sometimes we feel obligated to attend functions.
After a few days… I am busy with my office work and Sunday is the only day to relax. My mom asked me to attend that obligated marriage. That too it is on Sunday. So I can’t escape. When I am in dilemma whether to attend the marriage or not , My friend said that even she wants to come to that marriage. She just wants to visit Chennai with that reason.
Chennai…. It’s a place of best memories for us. A place which gave the best people in my life. A place which taught me what life is. A place of hopes. Its my favorite city.
Sooo.. The day came to start my journey to Chennai. A day before my friend called and said that she can’t come. Oohhh God.. Now I have to go alone. Tried my best to avoid attending that but my attempts failed. So started to Chennai…..Alone….
Opened my eyes and looked through the window. Oohh.. I have reached Chennai. I felt like I had a good sleep. Opened my mobile with drowsy eyes. 9 missed calls from Mom!!! It’s already 9. I am supposed to reach by 7. 45a.m. It means… I missed my Stop. Got down in next stop. Reached the function hall an hour late than planned and my mom was scolding me all the way that I slept carelessly and missed the stop.
Looking out of the cab and seeing the places I spent with my friends.I heard that a place can change your mood. Now I experience it. I like the feeling that i am in Chennai.
As soon as I entered the room my aunt showed me … A group of 5 ladies came to me smiling and continuously asking questions like how are u? How long it had been we met? How is everyone at home? I felt like running back. When they finished all their questions , I answered them slowly. I entered into rest room as soon as the person from rest room came out, just to avoid their questions.
Got ready. Now I am little bit comfortable with them. Am I the only one who feels bore of marriages? It took half day to complete all the procedures. Finally most awaited program. LUNCH…. I had it tummy full. I can barely walk with my tummy. I thought to take rest. But everyone wants to go for beach. As they are new to Chennai, I am the only one who has to take them. Booked a cab and went to beach.
Congratulated the couple and left. I have many friends in Chennai. I can’t meet everyone as I have to leave tonight. So I made the list whom I wanna meet on priority basis. Met a few of them because of time factor. Reminisced all the moments. Its really a wonderful day for me.
It’s time to leave Chennai. I don’t feel like going. At first, I don’t even want to come but now , it’s hard to leave. As the bus is moving tears rolled down my cheeks.
