Ananth could reach home only by 5:00 p.m., by then it was late to reach airport in time. They had missed their flight. Natasha was furious at Ananth and unwilling to talk.

‘Why did you even go to office? You could have logged in from home and work. I don’t even get to go to a vacation now.’, Natasha spoke as she bursts into tears.

‘Nats, it’s all right. We can take a vacation even now and we will. I will make this up to you!’ Ananth was clueless as the rains had created havoc in the city. The weekend was spend in making refunds for all the bookings. His surprise may not have worked out, but his mind was racing to make other definite plans.

Natasha was upset for days and did not talk to him. Ananth was persistent in his efforts and finally convinced Natasha for a long weekend holiday.

After many restless nights, this time Ananth made sure that they went for a beach holiday.

Quiet times! #AtoZChallenge

Last Chapter

30 June,2015

Natasha and Ananth had planned to go on vacation before the baby comes. The two of them wanted to spend some time together before they became three.

Ananth had kept the destination a secret and taken up all the responsibility from planning the vacation to completing all bookings. Natasha knew that they were going out of the country because Ananth had insisted for her to take all necessary vaccinations before travelling. She was still unsure of whether it was a beach vacation or mountains. Ananth even took care of her packing.

‘Ananth, give me a hint. I should know whether I am going to look like a buffoon in swimwear or will have to carry extra weight of woolens along with the baby bump!’, Natasha gave a last attempt to know the destination. Still Ananth gave her no clue.

The day had finally arrived when they would be going on their official BabyMoon. Mumbai weather is known to be unpredictable in the monsoons and it had been raining incessantly since last night.

‘Nats, we will leave early for airport as the roads might be jammed due to rains. Be ready by 4.’, Ananth told her before leaving for office in the morning.

As the day progressed Natasha was getting worried because of the weather. But, she brushed aside the negative thoughts and focused on the upcoming trip.

‘I am leaving from office and should be home on time’, told Ananth on the phone call.

‘Okay, See you soon!’

By now, there was news of water filling up on streets. ‘It happens every year’, thought Natasha. She was surfing news channels to get the current updates about the situation in the city. The JVLR highway was blocked and so were the underpasses in Andheri.  Thoughts of Ananth not reaching home on time were creating havoc in her mind. The clock struck 3:30, when she her phone buzzed.

‘Hello, where are you? When are you reaching home?’, blurted Natasha as soon as she picked up the call. All she wanted was to spend some quiet time with Ananth and weather was playing games now.

School’s over, summer is here! #AtoZChallenge

The sun has decided to burn out everything in sight this year. The temperatures are already soaring high & it’s only April yet. It’s a tough job to leave home between 11:00  – 16:00 hr. And for people like me whose office timings are late, its cruelty. I miss my school ‘s summer vacations when I could laze around whole day. 🙁

Actually, I am jealous of kids as of now, they get to enjoy summer vacations. But, what about us adults, we also need a summer break. Someone please go tell it to all the companies. It was fun being a kid. You could wake up late, sit & do nothing. Those summer camps where we used to enjoy with our friends. Why did I grow up?

My favorite part of summer vacation was enjoying mango delicacies. Eating the king of fruits in all it’s glory. The chirpy evenings were we used to roam around on our bicycles or visit friends at their home. And, the endless binge watching cartoon sessions Tom & Jerry, Flintstones,Popeye, etc, etc…

Our two months vacations were spent visiting new places. My dad being an avid traveller always had a plan ready for a summer trip. That’s how I got my travel bug. 😉

The only thing which I disliked about vacations was the holiday homework. I used to forget about it till the last week of vacations. The one week before joining school was busy catching up on the assignments & projects. Thanks to my mother & sister I could complete them on time. 🙂

Somewhere along the lines we all grew up and the kid is us lost its way. Let’s decide to be kids again – the innocent & carefree souls who get to enjoy summer vacations!

Do you miss being a kid? How did you spend your summer vacations? Eagerly waiting to hear your summer tales.
