I was meaning to write to you for a long time, trust me! I would think that I should write to you on a weekend so that you have some time to sit and read my message and in the process, I have missed so many weekends.
I decided to write today as I was not able to hold back any more. At the outset, I CONGRATULATE YOU as SoSY turns 1 today. What a journey it has been! 900 +chapters!!
I came across this wonderful tale when I went for a vacation with my cousins last year. I used to check on phone on train journey but couldn't get sense of it as I was surrounded by people peeping into my phone.
As Noufiya has said, the word menopause caught my sight and started following. I have followed it from thread 2 and believe me I never got addicted to any thing like this before. I wrote the chapter titles and page numbers on a tissue paper because I couldn't find pen and paper that moment I can't believe me keep refreshing my phone every now and then to see if an update has come! Though I am passive in commenting, I am along with it. Know that my dear author.
You are truly an amazing story teller binding a whole lot of people across the continents. I love your eyes to details, your creativity and sense of humor. Your consistency in maintaining the quality and sincerity in delivering it and patience to accommodate the ever increasing demands for updates is truly truly impressive. I must confess how you have influenced my life so positively. When I get so many things to do on a particular day and not able to manage them, I tell myself ,"LOOK HOW NISHA juggles between work, home, kids and Sosy and other things. You don't even have so many responsibilities. Get yourself going"
When I moved to Delhi, six months back, I felt as if I am meeting II and RB. I feel SoSy's presence when I come across the places mentioned here. Just see me being"consciously crazy" :D :D
I went to Malai Mandir just to imagine Sosy and the same applies for DDA flats Munirka and R K Puram, Tamil Sangam, Karnataka Sangha. Recently, I attended a conference at Taj, Chanakyapuri. When I got know that I was to go there, I jumped in joy just because it is in Chanakyapuri. :D When I entered , the lemony scent there made me feel RB. The same day you wrote about the American style emergency center near The Ashok Hotel. I was just passing by. I felt so happy and thought you just got me into the story :D
When a friend of mine was to go for a play at Modern school , Barakhamba road, I explained all about it. She was like, "How do you know this much?". I said, "My friend went there" :D In other instance, when I see Neva, the Maruti dealers in Delhi, I think of Excelsior.I go to Jor Bagh, as my mentor lives there. I hope to meet II and RB's doctor :D
This is been a stupendous journey, Nisha. I salute you for this. Minion's Tara Mausi (for Tira Misu), II's Oily patch cannot be forgotten in my life. I would have told Tara Mausi to my mother atleast 50 times. She thinks I have gone mad :D :D
II's dresses and jewellery needs a special mention. I so love them. I am a big fan of big jhumkas. I really love it when you mention it. I have been in dilemma for three years whether to pierce my nose. All my friends got it done three years back. Now, your II has finally made me decide on that. I have placed orders for ruby, pearl and diamond nose pins.
SO WHAT DID I LEARN OUT OF THIS?
1) be consistent like you, Nisha
2) be crazy, yet adorable like II
3) be balanced like RB
It bursted my myth that you can't have a. Virtual family that is so loyal and caring. I pay attention to details now and chuckle to myself thinking that it is because of SoSy :)
The tales of SoSy craziness are never ending and I love being crazy that way. Hope you read THIS reader's appreciation just like you read others. I have a small msg for you and I have sent over Private Message. PLEASE LOOK INTO THAT :))
HAPPY FIRST BIRTHDAY SOSY :) Grow more wiser and smarter!!
Happy birthday Nisha for the writer in you :)
Awaiting your response on this one and the PRIVATE MESSAGE :)
Warm Regards from my side.
Hey Barbie Loved your detailing. All of us here are very invested in this story and by capturing the random yet significant moments in a nutshell, you made me connect to everything that you posted that I have personally loved as much as you have. Oily patch is my most favourite too , actually was , as now it is the snow flakes one " no two are alike" update.
I felt something very similar akin to what you felt in your post .I landed at my brother's place welcomed by snow .
And the way I see snow flakes now is influenced by this chapter which had the tree limbs talking to snow. The top layer was powdery white. I blew it off my hands and like II , made my daughter and my nephews dig into the snow upto their elbows. I did that too. Pure unadulterated fun
Yeah I look at snow way different now
