33 and still counting!!!

33 and still counting? But what? Any good guesses? No. Never. You'd not guess what I'm talking about even if you tried a million times.

Ok. So let me tell you what 33 refers to. Those are the little mustard-shaped-watery bubbles that have started appearing on my skin. You got it? Yes. I contrived Chickenpox from one of my friends. Remember my first post of this month - 'An extraordinary experience' - about going for a ride with a friend and how the trip got interrupted because she got chickenpox?

Since I didn't see any symptoms for all these days, I presumed I was safe. But no. Yesterday night I found funny little bubbles appearing on my shoulders. I thought it was due to the heat (the weather has become quite hot here now). I didn't get too bothered about them till today afternoon though I was feeling very weak and tired since morning. And when I finally found those cute little bubbles appearing on my tummy and... ahem... and on my butt... I got alarmed! I realised why I felt uncomfortable while riding on my bike to the office today morning - imagine bubbles on your but! That's scary, isn't it so? I immediately consulted a doctor and the test result confirmed that I have got Chickenpox! Factually, there wasn't any test that happened. I just had a nurse sticking a thermometer in my armpits and when she was not satisfied with that she stuck it in my mouth! How dare she!!! But frankly, I didn't mind it 'coz she was a SYT (Sweet Young Thing), probably just out of her nursing school and she was smiling at me all the while! Now, come on, who can resist a smile so sweet and that too from a young unassuming girl like her? Anyways... The doctor has prescribed two weeks of bed rest and that means I'm gon'a be home-bound and bored for the next two weeks! I don't know what to do with all that time. Maybe, I'll catchup with my reading and some good movies!

Aha! And about the number "33". I lied! Actually there are more of those cute little bubbles all over my body and on my scalp too. I got tired after counting up to 33 and besides, that's my lucky number. 33 was my role number in school from my 7th grade to the time I completed schooling and those were my best school years.

Anyways... I'd like to share with you all two songs I've been repeatedly hearing since I returned home. These are two of my all time fav. songs and I'm sure you'd like it too.

Song 1: "Yuhi chala, chal rahi..." composed by A.R Rahman and sung by Hariharan, Udit Narayan & Kailash Kher (three of my fav. singers). The icy voice is of Hariharan, the nasal one of Udit and the raw-rustic one of Kailash. Of the three, I like Kailash the best 'coz the guy sings from his heart - unsophisticated and no nonsense. Now, I don't want to discredit the other two for their singing prowess. They are un-arguably among the best-test of the singers in the country. Kailash is only my very personal choice.

This song is from a movie called 'Swadesh' which won many critical accolades 'coz it dealt with many social issues in India. And here's the song for all of you to enjoy:

Song 2: "Allah ke bandhe..." composed by Vishal Dadlani and rendered so heartfully by Kailash.

Have a nice day...

And I'd like you all to visit my other blog - Ekan learns to sing if you'd like to listen to me sing!
