    By now you all know me very well. I am happy when anything good happens and feel sad when something hurts me.

    Today as usual I went to the station in the evening to meet my daughter who comes from office. We both feel nice telling our experiences during the day and then I go to her house, stay for sometime and come back home.

    I had told my daughter I will wait at the Bhel puri shop for her.
    I was waiting for her when the Bhel puri was being made. Last time when my daughter had bought it was 12 Rs. But I heard him asking someone you want Rs. 7 ka bhel or Rs. 10 ka bhel. So I also told him I want Rs. 10 ka bhel. That was sukha bhel and i wanted geela bhel.
    When I told him not sukha I want geela he said uska Rs. 12 hi madam. Though he had already packed my bhel , when I told him geela bhel he did not get angry but packed the geela bhel for me.
    The other day only I was telling my daughter he is always smiling and patiently does the bhel for everyone. So today I was more impressed by him, otherwise if itwas someone else they woud have shouted for asking to make my taste of bhel.

    Then I saw my daughter passing but she did not notice me. I was trying to call out to her but she did not see me, then another lady who is known to me she asked whether she should call her , this by making signs only she asked, I told her yes. But my daughter was walking fast so she could not catch. My daughter forgot that the bhel shop has already gone, then remembered and stopped for a while. So that lady told her that I am waiting there. Then I met my daughter. So nice of the lady to tell my daughter. This is another incident which made me happy

    There is a third incident also. Seeing so many people doing arts and crafts I also wanted to put up something there. I have a drawing which I have made in 1958 or so and given to my friend for her Birthday . This is in a book which I had given to her but last time when I met I took from her as many thoughts are there which I wanted to copy. I wanted to scan this drawing and put it in indus.

    So I went to the cafe to do this. But that fellow said our master only does it and he comes after 8 pm or during the day after 12 pm.
    When I was about to leave another fellow , I dont know who he is asked me what I want , when I told him, he said you can leave the book here and he will get it done. I told him I will come tomorrow it is not urgent. Then he told me there is another cafe, if it is urgent you can go there and get it done. Then he asked me are you a south indian , I said yes. Then he said surprisingly your flow of English is good otherwise south indians speak differently. I asked him whether he is telling the truth or just trying to please me. He said know it is really good. I was so happy to know that.

    Viji ma
    Not just us here on IL but EVERYBODY loves Viji ma :). Please lets not talk about bhel puris. Bhayankar mouth watering at the moment!

    I am like you too when I see arts and crafts made by people. There is this sudden urge in me to do something. The most I have managed so far is sit one day with a piece of paper and pencil and make a few sketches, of course by looking at something. I can't imagine and draw things. Copy adichu adichu pazhakkam!! heheheh........ Once I manage a few sketches, the urge subsides and I am back to old self. Never have I felt like extending or doing something continuously with it. You should post your drawing here and would love to see it.
