You Have to Go

Goodbyes are not forever. Goodbyes are not the end. They simply mean I'll miss you, Until we meet again

Its absolutely time I reminded myself this popular quote as a dear friend's family departs from Doha in couple of Days. We were dismayed upon learning this news. Though the real fact so hits hard teaching us how we go with the flow in life and how we ever cannot simply get so attached to someone whom you will dare not feel like departing with? The interesting part about the beginning of our journey together owes to our  "cloth hanger shopping".

Time fled in silence yet, No signs of you, but, My eyeballs raced, door to podium, Awaiting a figure, if at all you come.
My heart wept, not eyes, As I awaited, For You.                                                               Courtesy Google Image

And the day we are to arrive all my mom  has to do is to make a call to the local fisherwoman for supply of fish! Jai Tata Indicom offers.  She will quote to you over her mobile phone....you need to strike the deal for the supply and pay thats it. Makes life easy. Ain't it.

Dirt cladded wet saree , sweating  and smelling of the sea, as these fisher women sit in the market howling prices, indistinctingly calling "sisters and brothers"....
This was a scene an era ago. Now the whole scene is revolutionized. Thers not much of sound, but for the vague mobile ringtones.  Social etiquette, Sigh. .....are Ill mannered
Alright, apart from fisher women, there is a gang od Auto rickshaw walla's with mobile phones with them.  I had once spotted one auto rickshaw…
