It's finally over...


And that's my place (not my home, though) on a rainy day (Kerala, India)


There's been continuous rain since the past few days. This is very unlikely at this time of the calender in my place. But since, I've been home bound for the past three weeks, it really doesn't make much difference to me except for the fact that I'm having cooler nights to cuddle under my blankets.

And the greatest news of the day is that I was allowed to take a bath. And what an elaborate ritual it was? Turmeric paste was dabbed all over me and the water was boiled with neem leaves in it. What more? Coconut oil for my hair that was unwashed for ages and above and besides all this, NORMAL FOOD!!! Ah! I almost cried when I tasted a bit of spicy food. The feeling was so overwhelming, I tell you! Never knew the normal home food tasted sooooooo gooooood!!! And ah! It's finally over... Now, it's bed rest with normal food since Sunday and I'd be back to office by Monday! Can't wait to see them all again. But what about these marks on my face? Am I going to scare them all? Would they feel repulsed looking at my face? Ah! I don't know. Can't help it anyways. They'll have to get used to seeing my ugly scared face and I'll have to get used to awkward glances.

Another piece of news is that I finished the story that I've been bragging about. I know this isn't my best. But I've been contemplating over this plain-just-plain love story but with an ironical twist for a while. I started writing it almost a month ago and could not think of a fitting climax for it. I still don't think I've got it. But I can't wait any more. I mean, patience has its limits too. So here I'm with the latest addition to my creative writing blog - It's a short story titled 'The Encounter' (Please click here to get to the story page). I'm not too happy with the title either. But as I said - patience has its limits. Can't wait any more.

Friends, please visit my other blog - Just Gibberish... and let me know what you think about the story.

I had noting special. But the very normal home food - Iddlie and hot chuttney tasted like some exotic dish after so many days of bland food!
Kerala is a nice place. Love the pic.
Glad you are feeling better:)
Have a relaxing weekend!

So glad you're up and about again and don't worry about your face, the marks will clear up and you're gorgeous enough to carry them anyway!!!

Thank you for stopping by and joining my blog! I look forward to reading your stories and adventures. I will certainly sit down and read, The Encounter. The title sounds very intriguing. As far as your current post...spicy food, coconut oil, and a bath. Sounds like my kind of ingredients but judging by all the rain you've experienced this was a well deserved treat for you. I love that photo. I can't tell you how jealous I am of that view. Rain and all.
