I am going to Madurai this weekend – Rekha and I are leaving to Madurai tonight.

If you happen to be at the Egmore station today between 8-9.30 p.m. and are looking for some tense moments come and meet me. I would be easy to tell…I would be pulling along a bag as tall as I am and would be chasing a well-dressed, quick walking malkin…who will be scolding me even as she would avoid fellow travelers coming from the opposite side.

If you land up late…we would be in our seats. If you see a bespectacled guy with a huge bag on his lap…and a pretty malkin occupying rest of the seat…you can safely guess that it is us – the family.

Come over and talk…but not a word of this blog. Just wink at me and I would tell my malkin that you were an old classmate. If you are a girl, I would dissuade you from meeting me…but even if you do come…I would introduce you as that girl from Kolkata who tied Rakhi on my right hand for ten consecutive years.

If the posts are few and far between…I hope you would understand. It just means that I am gearing up for some spicy daughter-in-law-in-mother stories.

Let me see if I am able to keep myself away from my Blog till Monday. Maybe, like a bed bug that rushes into a sleeping man`s trosuers, I will rush into an internet browsing center as soon as I land in Madurai!!
