Today morning, as I was watering my plants in the balcony, I heard a remote yet clear 'Adaaa'. I was expecting it :) :) I looked straight ahead to my Mum's balcony and there they were, my Mum and Sister waving at me. I am so so lucky that my parent's place is just a stone's throw away!! I smiled and waved back, and since my mornings are always hurried, rushed back to get ready for office.
This doesn't happen often, although I know my Mother dear looks at my balcony every morning hoping to catch a glimpse of me....Mothers!! So sentimental!! So cute!! :)
Anyways, it was so today, coz they had just come back from Lucknow, enjoying a nice 10 day break at Nana-Nani's place.
I had missed them...I had missed my grandparents....missed the Lucknow home.....a place filled with childhood memories of cousins fooling around, going to the Hanuman ji temple with Nanaji, listening to bed time stories from Nani (she made them so magical, narrating to us in her sweet voice), playing Cards (we used to play Teen Patti and Court piece where cheating was as important as the game... :) We would be most intrigued when the elders used to sit down for a game of Bridge. The game was, is and always will be too complicated for me...Nanaji had genious hands in this one!!), going to the park with Nanaji in the evenings, endless sumptuous meals prepared by Nani, the Samosa-Jalebi breakfast ritual, Litchis, Mangoes...Ahhh the Summers in Lucknow....the list can go on and on...
Mmmm the sweet rich taste of Mangoes...can't imagine Summers without them...my favourite are the Dusseheri variety and I'm just heading to my Mum's place to get my share of them....handpicked and sent from Lucknow :) :) Yummm!!
