My parents called me one fine day and said, they are planning to visit bengaluru sometime this weekend. I was having my own plans for that weekend but cancelled it as for me, it was more important that anything else. As planned, they started from hyderabad on 22nd June 2012 around 5PM. Dad informed me that they will be coming around 6-6.30AM in the morning. I said, i will be coming in the morning to pay a visit to railway station as they were planning to stay at my cousin’s home near Electronic city. I went to railway station around 6.30AM and Jagadeesh (My cousin’s husband) was also waiting for my parents and his father-in-law and mother-in-law. After few minutes, they arrived at station and i wished them and had chat for few mins. they suggested me to come to electronic city and stay there. I refused and said will be coming in the afternoon. After going back to room, i had some office work which i finished it and left for electronic city.
Around 12.30PM in the afternoon, i reached their home where everyone was chiling out. Dad, uncle, Jagadeesh, Deepak and Gowirsh were discussing about something which i tend to ignore. Womens n gals were in kitchen and talking their own stuff. Then we planned to have lunch at their home where i ordered Aarthi (my cousin) to prepare my favourite dish (Aloo and Tomato curry). Stomach was completely filled up after the lunch and i was kindoff sleeply around that time. After lunch, Mission Impossible 1 was being showed on the sony pix which we watched till the end. Then had a chat with jagadeesh on what places to visit and decided to visit ISKON in the evening. It was around 5PM when everyone got ready finally and got into Maruti 800 and Ford Ikon which jagadeesh had brought. I started early as i had some work to be finished. I informed them that i will be joining them directly at ISKON. It was around 8.20PM that we reached ISKON and by the time we entered the main hall, Pooja was being carried out. All of them left lucky as they were on time for the puja. After puja and taking darshan of Lord Krishna, we decided to have diner somewhere around and part our ways (me to my room and all of them to my cousin’s home). We finally went to BASAVA MANTAP @ Rajajinagar to take the blessing and pay a visit to Mata Mahadevi who is our guru. We had prayer there and met our guru. Our parents had chat on various issues and other official work as we were joking behind and playing with my camera. After few mins, the diner (or call it as prasad) was prepared for us. We had our diner which was very tasty and decided to take a leave. Before leaving, we had new snaps and call it a day.
Next few days, they visited many places in bengaluru like Lalbagh, Banshankari Temple, Bull Temple, Orion Mall etc. They visited many places which i didn’t visit in my stay of 1year in bengaluru. Its always this way where, people who stay in the city doesn’t get time to visit the places whereas people who come from other places visit most of the places. My parents were so happily and were relived from all the tensions of daily life. Though, i hadn’t spent much time with them as it was weekdays and they insisted me not to take leave. I really felt very happy and satisfied by seeing the happiness and smile’s on my parents face, my cousin’s, uncle n aunty.
Hope to c you soon again in bengaluru 🙂
