My city,My lane

Vyas is screaming for attention and calls out for me more than often.His little ugoo’s are catching my heart everyday and i just cannot say how happy i feel when i see him give his toothless smile πŸ™‚

Aku started reading to vyas and he read from his “magic Stories” book and keeps asking vyas all the questions i used to ask aku after i read a story and poor vyas,just looks at his brother and smiles πŸ™‚

Feel good to and looking forward for those 10 days at amma’s home in hyderabad.As a teenager my brother and i used to hate our area or those little lanes where we live.It is in the old part of secundrabad.We used to scream and yell at our parents,asking them to get to the hip side of the city.Most of the time or say always,we kept out friends away from home,thinking freak what will they think? and also spent most time in the happening areas at that time,like banjara,jubilee or sainikpuri.However i just realized that,those tiny lanes have so much activity in them.When i come out to my balcony in the post gates community in Bangalore,i miss noise around me.I mis kids screaming and playing gulli cricket.I miss neighbours sitting out and gossiping.I miss aunties bringing over savouries and snacks.i miss sitting in the front yard when it is hot and drinking juice or butter milk and chatting with relatives and friends.I miss not having t knock to go to any house there and miss the way we celebrate functions and festivals.

I am gad I belong to Seethphalmandi and am proud to be a citizen there πŸ™‚

    I miss HYD too! We lived in Ameerpet and my parents and in laws still live there. I love any part of HYD and have memories all over the city. When ever I read a post about HYD, it makes me nostalgic and I feel like running back to my home town and settle there.

    Hopefully, someday we’ll be back and Sarath can experience HYD and see what a fun city it is….

    I lived in a small bylane in Malleswaram and I miss the sights and sounds – kids playing cricket, vegetable and fruit vendors, raddiwala’s call, neighbours dropping by…. Living in an apartment building now, I feel so isolated, strangely!

    You are so right. There’s no place like the home where you grow up.
    I too lived in Secundersbad for a while (since my dad’s in the army). And I did have my set of cribs, but only when you’re taken away from something do you realize the value of it. πŸ™‚

    And yes… A baby’s toothless smile is UNDOUBTEDLY the most beautiful thing in the world. πŸ™‚

    Hugs. πŸ™‚
