I went to the beach today, to meet some of my PG friends. Many of us, who belonged to the lost world (that’s the name of the ladies hostel in our college) are very much in Chennai, but we rarely get to meet, or don’t meet at all, and everytime we talked over the phone, we kept promising ourselves that we will meet some time, and send ‘sorry da, I’ve got some work at home’ types of messages on the day we planned to meet. Things worked finally, though a few girls backed off, five of us managed to make it.. What an evening it was! 🙂 I missed all the laughter and fun we used to have and it was nice to see the good old faces after a long time. We started our typical mokkai sessions with ‘beach manga’ and ice creams.
Many of them have to travel a lot and were talking about the ‘corporate culture’ in their respective work places. Alhamdhulillah, I am glad that we don’t have such ‘cultures’ in our place. Had it been there, you would have found another post on the heights of vettiness.. 😀 Noticing the change in some of them, I thought the first thing that any girl would spend from her salary is on her looks, and it is quite unacceptable for me to easily shell out Rs 3-4 thousands on straightening the hair and another Rs 500 on shampoos and conditioners to ‘maintain’ them. :O (I wish I can use some proper smileys here. Any suggestions?)
One of my friends asked if we are happy about our work. Well most of us said we did, pretty much into what we wanted to be. Then they shared a lot of things, about streching beyond the work hours, travelling, meeting clients, and how young women are treated by some clients. My brother called, it was time and we left the place promising that we will meet often, insha Allah.
Well if you’re wondering what has this to do with the Woman’s day, it is absolutely nothing! 😀 All these woman’s day, mother’s day, father’s day, tea kada payyan’s day and poo kada aaya’s day, andha day, indha day mean nothing to me. 😀 .
But there is one thing that I thought I will leave on my blog today. Men are good at maintaining their contacts with friends. It is difficult for women. 😦
