My vacation went well, as usual. I reached home on Saturday, and there was a Puja in our home in the evening. We had a nice dinner, on banana leaf. My grandmother sat next to me and she affectionately transferred all the Kaya Varathathu from her leaf to mine.
I spent most of the time inside home. Our house construction work is now almost over, but still some furniture works are remaining. Unnikrishnan had come for fixing doors for the cupboards and also for making a dining table. I guess he will be working at least for the next three weeks on that.
Vishnu (Kottarakkara) came on Monday to invite for some family function. I was happy to meet him after a long time.
On Tuesday I went to Koodalmanikyam temple, visited Current Books and bought some books. While coming back, it rained. I tried to remember when was the last time I ran in rain without an umbrella, but couldn't recollect. Probably it was around ten years back, while I was on my way to my grandfather's house. My grandfather was alive that time. Seeing myself coming, he came out of the compound with his big gray umbrella.
Kallada bus people called me up on Tuesday and told that the bus charge has increased again by Rs.30. Now it is Rs.340 for the journey.
Pramod's parents and my pre-degree batch mate Anoop were there in the bus. Next to my seat was one guy who works in Solvent company. It looks like he is planning to buy some land now, and I don't know what made him think that I am some kind of real estate broker or something. He kept on asking about the availability of land in Peshkar Road, who owns which place etc. etc. for a long time, until I acted like being asleep.
There was a beautiful girl sitting on the front seat of the bus. I spent my time watching her reflection on the dark glass behind the driver's cabin wall, until they switched off the lights to show the movie.
