The Chase!

It was a busy evening, she was racing to jump the signals. As expected traffic at that office closing time is unbearable. The route that she took is always crowded but can't help much as she has to go through that way. Suddenly there was no way but to stop as the signal turned to red!
For no reason the car in front of her, caught her attention and she keenly looked at it. Then she heard some sound coming. which she knew was from the car in front of her. Before the Nancy Drew in her came waking, she had to first ascertain if it's true. Zip Zap she rode ahead, trying to be very close to the car to peep in. The car had all dark glass which didn't help at all. Now the sound was very distinct. It was surely coming from the car.
The car driver was in his late 40s or so, he didn't look much like a kidnapper. But then she has not actually seen a kidnapper in person right. For all you know there might be somebody dragged and tied down in the back seat, who was beating against the door. The noise was getting louder and she wondered why none of the other commuters didn't notice.
All the Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys she devoured as a kid, came to help. She zoomed ahead to make sure she helps whoever that monster was kidnapping!
She was hoping the driver won't take a different route or a police would come before that happens. The police never came but the road was diverging and she had a hunch that he was taking the turn. She was short of ideas at what to do next, she was saw he turning. She also saw a loose silencer hanging below...
She was glad he took that turn!

Thoughts as they pass..

I know I am updating this space after such a long gap. Days simply seem to disappear and you never know one from the other. It's been a routine that was hard to break. Before I could even realize we are into the six month of this year and I feel it just begun. It has literally been a rat race against every small thing I do every day.

Months, especially the last couple of months have vanished in thin air, can you believe literally thin air! It's all because kids had summer vacation and their school extended their vacation more. There I was worrying so much about the covering I had to do for Konda, father in law offering to help in and planned his trip accordingly and govt playing havoc on our plans. Finally looks like I will have to do all those covering myself. There actually was a time when I looked forward to that task.

School is reopening tomorrow for Konda, I am so much on nerves. Though I wake up pretty early every day, I wake up to work on the blog. My nightly work has been shifted to day as the kids don't let me work at night. The carefree days are gone, there is no more time for dilly dallying

There are many things I mentally listed that were to be done, still undone..
There are no more days to do them anyway...

Spider world with spider boys!

Peddu and Chinnu in their Spiderman Dress. we call them Spiderboys. Since Sunday, they are seen only in this costume. While the other Spiderman climbs walls, they climb the sofas and grill windows...

Konda was showing them how to climb!

Days surely have passed away very quickly. Not a day passed without me thinking I have neglected this space. I clicked these pictures on the New year Eve. We had a fireworks display and they looked magnificent, just as you wish the life will be.

When it looks like they are showering you with its blessings, you are stuck with its splendid display.

It looked more brilliant than here, I don't think I will ever forget the sensation I had seeing this live.

Today marks the close of a period in many ways. It also marks a new beginning. Makes it very fitting that I should remember that moment in life that got fixed in mind for ever.

However old you become, I guess you never loose the kid in I sit here writing this alone at home, with others already asleep, I think of the many birthdays that have gone by and look forward to another year that is on its way.
