Shubho Bijoya to all of you :)
To people who don't get it, it's something we say in Bengali after the poojas are over. And then the kids touch the elders feet, and hug their friends/family [thrice in the men's case].
Anyway, so yea,
Pooja's over. Bhaashan done. And I still am in a trance. And by trance, i mean one.
I was waiting for these 4 days for a whole year, but well, this year things didn't really go as planned. Not as perfect as last year, and the year before last. Everything made me shrug and say "Oh whatever man, screw it" this year.. It wasn't the same.
Yes. Maybe the primary reason was that I had my terms starting from the 29th-- the next day the poojas got over.. But honestly, i don't think so.
Nothing was planned this year, y'know? I mean, nothing was, last year too! But, in a way, everything fell in place. But this year, everything was so screwed up! I couldn't meet half my friends cause my family time had increased from a 50% to a 75% . Not that I didn't have fun, course I did =]
But well, it was just different. The only thing that really kept me going was the kashmiri gate day :) I would have died had that not happened, really!
So anyway, B-Block pandal SUCKED. K-block was good.. just that a little bit of it resembled intestines of the stomach xP okay, it's just a matter of perspective! haha :P
Shiv Mandir's pandal was nice enough.. Charmwood sucked, and Matri mandir! Omg! THEEE BEST> !
I did the Dhunochi dance this year, again =)
I owe that one to*you.
The pictures, the one's i took with family, and few friends at different date have come out really well :) Put few of'em up soon :)
So anyway guys, I'm off now. It's okay that poojas weren't that great this year. Everything can't be a cake all the time na? So yeah, I'm going to be all the more optimistic about it, and make next year grand.
And I promise ALLLL of you to include y'all in it, cyberly if necessary ;)
[P.S-- the 1st picture above is the Dhunochi Dance by me, and the 2nd one is the idol of Kashmiri gate. Also, Rohaan, it's not "Doorga Poojow".] :P
