Good bye Chennai, see ya in May

My month long winter break in Chennai unfortunately comes to an end tonight. It sucks to head back to college, it’s been my best winter break till date.

I got to celebrate, for the first time, New Year’s eve with my two best friends, drinking pepsi  on a terrace watching fireworks and listening to Vijay fans from another terrace playing Vettaikaran songs. There was also some trouble getting off the terrace, but, then compared to listening to Vijay songs, that wasn’t all that bad.

I got to watch the Chennai Open semis and finals. The last time I saw tennis here, it was called the GoldFlake Open and Carlos Moya could still win a game or two. My message for Charu Sharma, ‘Charu, where are you?’, however, did not make it to the big screen TV. Quite unfortunate.

But most importantly, I got to spend time with the parents and sister after what’s been a very long and tiring year.

And I got tickets (and badass 3d glasses) to watch Avatar!

So good bye Chennai, I shall see ya in May. I shall come back a graduate, a young man who can no longer use college as the reason for why he can’t cook anything edible.

Was that REALLY your message to Charu or did it read - 'Charu, the love of my life.....'
:P

Not explicitly, but I'm sure he could have read that between the lines
