Hey, I’m so excited to visit my native once again in December!
Every vacation, we visit different places, but then why do,
I DON’T FEEL THE WAY I FEEL WHEN I FEEL WHILE VISITING MY NATIVE PLACE??
And do you also feel the same I do??
I have a big family with lot many cousins, from both mother’s and father’s side; say almost 20 to 25 of them. And it was like a ritual that every alternate year they will visit Bombay (Now called as Mumbai) in summer vacations and we will visit our native place (KUTCH).
With four masi and 4 mama and their kids…..the vacation was awesome (Won’t be able to connect if I use Uncle and Aunt).
When we used to visit them, all of us used to gather at one place in one room and play the whole day, coming out of that room only for two reasons, first was the food and the second was nature’s call. My mama never liked us watching T.V, so I still remember that we saw Dilwale Dulhania le Jayenge( DDLJ) in 13 instalments in his absence, because he used to come home and rest after lunch and come early at night. Can you imagine the desperation to see that movie…as we being in our teen age? Now, I understood where I came across the word INSTALLMENT FIRST IN MY LIFE!!
Whereas, at my masi’s place, they all were very fond of movies, so we used to watch movies whole night!! And sleep at 4 in the morning and again fresh enough in the morning to enjoy our vacations to the optimum.
And when they used to visit Mumbai, at our place, our family being crazy about cards and cars, we used to play cards whole night and the winner of the game sponsors the ice-cream party for that day. And for cars, three of my cousins have learnt driving two-wheeler in Mumbai!! And, the funniest part is they all learnt together, but dashing the stall of the same person at the same place thrice while losing their balance!!
AHH! What vacations they used to be…Are these memories, the time spent together and the love for each other the reasons, why I’m so excited even today to visit it?
And, why do I DON”T FEEL THE SAME EXCITEMENT WHEN I PLAN MY ITIENARY FOR SUMMER VACATIONS??
