The meet!

This is coming quite a time after it happened - so sorry people - but my net was disconnected! Thats why the delay! :)

Had been to Madras over the last weekend for a temple visit program. Was a short, packed one - but made it a point to meet a couple of bloggers there - since we had been discussing that for like a LONG time now! I was already being made fun of that I just keep saying I intend to come soon but never really make it! :D

So it happened. I was in Madras last Saturday morning and couple of calls later - Naut, Ranga, Prad & me decided to meet up. We went to this nice tea place called Cup & Saucer [or was it Cups & Saucers?] in Adyar. The place selection was courtesy Naut - who had to pick me up from a station and then take me there. And a few minutes later - came Prad & Ranga.

Funniest thing was - atleast for me - it did not feel like I was meeting people for the first time! There was no formality or anybody trying to be very polite and all. I thought it was more like a group of friends meeting up after a long time - probably because we all have been speaking so much on chat & on calls, over the last 3 years :). No need for introductions or anything - just say a hello - how are you and then get talking on things that friends do, when they meet up! 

I totally loved it - people! Thanks to you three :)

Ranga initially seemed a little silent - but was quick to get back in form when the topic suddenly diverted to traveling the distance to office and how one colleague affected it all :))). The colorful language just flowed out :D :D. 

I wish I could have met Aarti and Bharu - but Aarti was flying to Mumbai just that morning and Bharu couldn't make it too. And then there was Sunrays too, that I spoke to - but he couldn't make it either! Next time, I should probably have a plan in advance and decide about meeting people early on - so the plans can be made! And yea - the next time - Bharu & Aarti - we will surely meet - ok?

And after the eating program was over - Ranga & Prad left. I found an Odyssey store right next to the place we went and I dragged Naut along to it. 

And then - Naut, who was supposed to originally leave me at Pallavaram [I was staying in Pammal], went on to drop me in Pammal! It was no near place and I realized that only on my way back :D :D :D. Naut - sorry still about having made you drive all that way - but huge thanks too :) 

And thanks again people - for making it to meet that day! I loved it! :) I wish I took some good pictures I could put up here!
