I left my office at 5 in the evening. As our music classes are closed I thought to ask my Di to call out for playing shuttlecock. I called her, unfortunately she was not able to come, but luckily she invited me to visit her client’s farmhouse that she is going on the next day. I said no reasons, accepted the invite, cancelled all my other plans :-)hihi!.
I wake up at 7:30 a.m. after snoozing my alarm several times which actually kept for 7:00 a.m. I got ready in another half an hour. Then I called Di, she was already in WTC building Orian mall, and said I am starting. I hired an auto and reached there at 8. We then met near WTC. It was her wish, she said, to go to the top floor of the WTC building and see the look of Bangalore city. Which is going to happen in few minutes after we met. There was some meetings happening on 31st floor which she got invited to. So she went inside WTC, I was waiting near the lake there. The weather was cold in the morning, I miss my pullover and it was bit boring as there is no water in the lake.
After the meeting over she came back with her business client Jayaram, from The Green Path. He took us to one of his resort in Bangalore. It was awesome and green. He left me and Di in kitchen and went away for getting ready. We two had nice organic food there for breakfast. Then came back and waiting in the reception hall for a while and chatting.
When Jayaram came he took us to his farm land in Nilamangala 30kms from Bangalore. It was very green, natural and clean environment. There we saw a couple of surprisingly rare variety of dogs. They were both lean but very tall ones, I never have seen that kind of dogs before. It must be the one which they use for hunting purpose, may be!.
Then he took us to his farmhouse in the middle of his farmland. It was again an awesome calm place, surrounded with lots of trees and flowering plants around. The house was built with mud bricks and windows are at right place, which brings chillness and natural ambiance light inside the house. We removed our shoes and sit there in the first floor and had a nice Black tea and chatting. Jayaram shared his stories, about his organic farming, his Coorg resort bla bla bla etc etc.
The lunch arrived!. we came down, started with hot green soup, then a couple of healthy organic rotis with spicy brinjal curry and spinach. It was nice village lunch. The funny part is the spiciness of brinjal curry made Jayaram to sweat horribly. It was 3:00 p.m. when we finished with our lunch. Jayaram’s plan was to take sleep up to 5 and then take us to his actual farming place.
Jayaram went for sleeping. But me and Di, as we both are working, not used to the Afternoon sleeping habit. We took a couple of chairs and sitting in the terrace. Ha!! there comes the change in weather. It suddenly started raining!! and it lasts for half an hour. The place become more cool. After rain stops completely, I got a nice idea. I said to Di, come let’s go in to the forest.
We both started slowly without disturbing Jayaram, who is snoring inside, came out of the farmhouse. It was so funny, we both felt like a school kids doing this and I liked it. We didn’t wear our shoes, selected a direction and went inside the farmland, I felt like we were walking inside forest with tall trees covered on both sides. We found the farming land, which was covered with plastic fabrics around. When we went inside I found a big spider sitting in centre of her web. It looked so beautiful with sprinkles of small water droplets in her web.
Then came out of that plastic covered place, started walking still deep inside. Walking with our bare foot in freshly grown grass just after the Rain stopped was really an awesome nature walking experience. We were in the middle and started taking pictures of ourselves, like walking alone in the forest. Then continued and reached the end, the place looks like big circular steps going downwards, something like audience seats in the cricket stadium. The place was filled with so much of spiky plants, it started piercing our legs and it hurts. We felt like, Oh god!! let’s go out of this place.
We walked back the same route and reached the farmhouse. On the way we found some big ant homes there. The farm workers were drilling holes in the ground for planting new trees, that makes more noise. We were bit tired after walking, so we washed our legs and went to the beds to have short nap. We were lying there and listening to the videos of our music school annual day function that we recorded in our mobiles.
While listening to the music, I took a short nap for about 5 mins. When I opened my eyes, at the same second Di came down and peaking at my face to see whether I slept or not hihi :-) . Then I wake up and we were looking at my hometown photos in my mobile. While swiping at the hometown photos in mobile suddenly a girl’s photo, who was my college mate and was my crush, came in the screen. There starts a different topic.
I shared my college un-told love stories to Di. I felt shy, when I said it to Di and I don’t know why, may be because the first time I’m sharing the story with someone. But I feel free and released once I finished. Di is so patiently listening to all I said and giving ideas, she asked why I have not said my love to my crush. But what I felt is the girl I am interested in is not interested in me. So what I am doing now is letting her go. I don’t want to disturb her any more. yes I do miss her. But you know what, that is Life.
It’s not what we make, It’s all decided by god, who we will be meeting and having our relationship with in our life. Some people are like seasons, they come and they go but they don’t stay with us throughout the year. But some people are like moon and the earth, they synchronize with each other, they will be staying around together through out our life time. Yet it is decided by god. And Yes! god is true! Life really is wonderful though there is highs and falls, happiness and sadness.
Its evening about 5:00 p.m. we went back upstairs. Again sat on the same chairs we kept in the terrace later. Di while combing her hair, sharing her stories with me. About the two Rahul, the old company she worked and the different kinds of people she met in her life. Later we share about our school days, interests and wishes etc.
It was 6 p.m. we wear our shoes back. Sky is getting darker faster than usual as it rained in the evening. At the same time Jayaram woke up and came. Thank god, If we would have waited for him to take us in to his farmland, me and Di might have missed the fun we had. We came down and went to the place where the farmer people drilled holes in the ground for planting new trees. Jayaram given me and Di an opportunity to plant the new trees. We planted Jack fruit trees. We were doing it happily and it was a nice experience for us.
After a while we went back to the terrace and meditated for some time, then had a nice Black tea with peanuts.
We finished and came down, It was dark in front of the farmhouse where me and Di were standing. Jayaram was talking with his farm workers. The next day was my Birthday. I liked to give my birthday treat to Di, I don’t know, sometime I become so mad and fight like baby, I started fighting with Di asking her to come for dinner. I may not compromise them in fighting, but I still do, because I absolutely love to fight like silly kid with people closer to my heart. Yes that is the real me and I never give up or change myself for anyone.
Yes we came to end of our awesome Sunday trip. Lets thank for everybody that makes this day awesome. I really enjoyed the day well and it was so awesome. I thank Jayaram for taking us to his beautiful farmhouse, I thank my Didi for being my best friend and her love for me, I thank the farmer family for the wonderful food they provided us, I thank trees and all green around us for making the overall day wonderful, I thank the cloud for giving the rain, I finally thank God for nourishing our life with all his resources making it a beautiful memory.
Beautiful Memories Never Fades….
