Concrete Jungle

11 more days for my vacation. I am enjoying every bit of my vacation but I am logging to go back and lie down on my bed in my home there. I am worried about my indoor plants and my friend squirrel.

Here I am meeting my friends whom I didn’t see for more than five to six years. And most of them live quite far from my house. Commuting here is a big draw back in the city. With bad roads and traffic it’s a Herculean task.  Saving grace here is the Ola and Uber. Thanks to ola and uber getting a cab is much easier than buying a chocolate.

Been to few friends houses and it makes me feel sad by seeing the concrete jungle. There is so vegetation, it’s just those high rise Apartments and cannot see any vegetations. Been to a friend’s house which was on 10th floor. I tried to see beyond what my eyes can see for greenery. But I was disappointed, no site of green colour. Sometimes I am really blessed to live in a place where there is no pollution. My kids can play outside without wearing a mask on their noses.Atleast they play outside for six months. Can spot cats,squirrels and birds.

It’s a big chaos on the roads. Metro project is going on now and roads are full of potholes and construction materials. Top of that no one follows traffic rules.

I am enjoying my chaos..

Day 5 A small thought

I was going through an article and the author asked have you seen a sunrise,sunset,blooming of a flower, a butterfly,earthworm ect…

Sometimes in our life we crib what we don’t have and forgetting what we have and how blessed we are to have them.

In this concerete jungle we don’t get to see sunrise or sunset. Most of roads are covered by tarmac so no soil to see earthworm and because of mobile phones birds or butterflies are not seen.

Even though canada is a progressive country only the business districts are concerete jungles. Here apartment complexes are very few and more of independent houses.

After many years I played badminton in the open space I have in front of my house, which I never dream of playing in hyd as there is lots of traffic in front of my house.

I had sunflowers and veggies in my backyard. I used to count the sunflower buds every evening because I want to see how many flowers are taken by my Sunflower thief.

Even though I miss Hyderabad a lot, I am blessed to be here in-spite of harsh winter.

Things i did since last few months

Its been a while i had posted anything in my blog.Been busy and 24 hours seems to be less.

Time just flies,the year is coming to end.The year has been a good year till now and hope it will the same for the coming new year.Had many ups and downs in this year,there has been a major change with regard to my profession and my qualification.First time sat in a class after 12 years of leaving college.Can’t express what i felt that day sitting in the class after so many years.On a lighter note when i was asked my passing year by my lecturer……came to know that  i was the eldest in the class and since then my lecturer is calling me “madam”.

Have not done any experiment with the cooking,it is just the routine food i am cooking hence there is no update in my food blog too.Used to post wordless Wednesday and that too stopped since two weeks.Did satyanarayana pooja last week at home for the first time after marriage (10 years back).Some how we both never got an opportunity to do the pooja at home and this time we did.We invited very close relatives for lunch and we had a very good time.

Did few crochet things this year and once again thanks to crafty for introducing me to such a beautiful work.
