Amazing people who make me go on n on n on:)

And Thus I fell!


Another one of my walk ventures, turning into misadventures...

Yup...I fell!

And I remember Shakespeare uncle’s words here in Julius Caesar:
“What a fall it was my friends!
Then not just he (here you read as-she), but you, I and the country fell”
*Well, I know that’s not an exact quote before you prepare to sue me for being an English teacher and not remembering this...helloooooooo I have better things to do than run after Shakespeare....err...better people too;-)*

Okay...so it was a fine evening!
I was oscillating between the idea of going for my signatory walk or going shopping!
And I chose the former!
Obviously a grave error of judgement!
Who the f@#$ chooses walk over shopping?
I had to pay for my sin against the reputation of women-kind and the dainty, well-manicured, well-shopped-minus-the-credit-cards fairies in the heavens were ready to show their wrath!

The weather was beautiful...frothy, cotton ball like black clouds were stretching on the horizon, Mr. Sun blanketed by them and a cool breeze was blowing transforming my little town of Kanpur into an industrialized version of Nainital!
To add to the awesome mausam was the greenery of the lush green campus of the college I walk in, just dipped clean by droplets of a shower!

So what the heck...I collected my paraphernalia!
My I-pod, my mobile, the head phones, my room key, the umbrella and all of myself...now you can imagine the burden on my not-so-tiny and yet fragile shoulders!

And I began my walk as though my life depended on it...picturing a mini romance waiting for me somewhere down any corner*I had even imagined a blog post after the events to unfold entitled “Woh Barsaat ke Ek Sham”* knowing full well, that there are greater odds of finding a dinosaur egg in that campus than a decent cute enough guy to flirt with!

Within 15 minutes, the drizzle became stronger!
The breeze seemed to be in a teasing mood instead, raising my Anarkali style kurta here and there. I was telling Indra Dev-
“Prabhu, go n woo some other apsara...
I am anyways wearing tights under my kurta!
It’s not like this is a skirt,
So stop being a flirt!”

But probably Indra Dev*is he related to Rahul Dev by any chance?* did not like my refusal to oblige...
He blew harder*it’s just the wind...don’t get excited*
And called upon his bro Megh Dev to assist in his not so decent designs!

It now began pouring n blowing and with me multi tasking in the middle of it all!
One hand holding the umbrella, tugging at my hands to join the gust...with another holding the I-pod and the key and another managing the cell phone!
Okay...error...I remember now I have just two hands...
Well, what the heck! They all assisted in the tasks...mushkil ke ghadi mein apne haath he saath dete hain...no puns intended!

In all this mess came a speeding youngster in his swanky car and whooshed past me with so much force that I had to step down the cemented road, one feet down on the muddy fringes and in between there somewhere, somehow, I slipped and fell!

Not like a thud-thud slip!
Just swish and swoosh slip!
Fell on one knee and before anybody could realize that a woman in their straight line vision suddenly went out of it and would have to lower the eye lids to find me bundled on the ground...I got up and began to saunter as though nothing happened at all!

Home was still 10 minutes away and I walked with my head held high, not even waiting to examine the damage done below till I reached home!

And when I did...
Voila...the tights which were relatively new and cost me bloody 320 bucks were gone from the knee...
It pained like the pain in the arse!
A big red patch, covering my entire knee ball had surfaced there instead and the remains of the cloth stuck to my wounds!
Was that white thing my bone actually?
Must be...there can’t be anything else possibly white, running along with my blood, no matter how pristinely white and pure my thoughts are!

OMG...I am injured...wounded...hurt!
I called my dearly beloved...
Me- Mein gir gaye:-(
My beloved- Oho...baby, is the road alright?

Grrr...I called my best friend...
Me- Mein gir gaye:-(
Best Friend- Tch, awww how did you come home?
Me*excited at the first dint of consolation*- On my own...just imagine!
BF- Oho...you should have called up the crane guys...they would have done it for free...considering you are a lighter burden than what they mostly carry!
Grrrrrrr..............

I put it up on my status on Face book:
“Mein gir gaye!”
My friends:
1. - Kiss par? Ab uske haalat kaise hain?
2. – Abhi recently they had built the campus roads...what a waste!
3. – Go in for a tetanus injection...I’ll pray the needle does not break before getting into your skin!
4. – Hopefully this would not affect your brain and you’d continue to remain....abnormal!
5. – I never thought that could happen...err...you meant physically na...mentally to we all know that’s your perpetual state!
6. –Mein Kaziranga Gaya!
7. – That can’t be the bone...that must be a layer of skin under the hypo...blah! Blah! Blah!
8. - Humpty Dumpty had a great fall!

:-(
Boo hoo...of course there were sweet responses too!
But then...
Mein Gir Gaye! :-(

Awwwww you poor dear. Get well soon and get a tetanus shot if you think you'd need one.

Take care!

Sakshi said...

Awwww baby... * hugs * but, really, I was laughing my head off at "mushkil ke ghadi mein apne haath he saath dete hain...no puns intended!"
I am laughing still...

Doncha worry.. this what friends are for.
Once I had an accident, IMAGINE accident on the main road... a bike had hit me... and I call up my friends and they are like, oh, is the bike alright.

And the best was my father, who came to pick me up-
Instead of taking me to the hospital he took me to the police station to file an FIR * this is what you call occupational hazard*

Cheer up... and get set and go

* next time, go shopping *

sm said...

get well soon

Shayon said...

Sheesh! Tum gir gayi? Agli baar se, khali jhuk lena. Utna kaafi hota hai. *hoping my innuendo ain't too obscure* :-p

Pavitra .... said...

Hahahaha....
Its ok sweetie...Big HUG!
I once got chased by a cow (so I thought)....only to have it run past me...Imagine the embarrassment...

Love the replies you got...thats what friends are for!

suruchi said...

Hi Tbg...
I wrote 5 posts behind your back...behind your back as in when you were busy holidaying and I was not:-(
*Matlab I was slogging the mid night oil in writing my guts out...which you still have to read btw*

I got that tetanus shot*hey I didn’t know there was an “a” in tetanus...thank u*
And I told the compounder “Bhaiyya haath mein laga do”
And you know what the man said,
“Madam, bums pe lagvao...kal tak bahuuuuuuuut dard karega!”
I wonder if that’s a bear-butt technique for these guys...hmmmm!

So now I am waiting with a pain in the knee for the pain in the butt...:/

Thanks anyways dear!:-)

suruchi said...

Hi Sakshi,
I guess you found the pun-ny part in the funny part;-)
Way to go girl...my kinda gurl:-)
Keep laughing....looks good on u:-)

And I love it actually when I can give something to my friends to laugh about, even if it is at the cost of my not-so-bad misery...actually it is always at the cost of my misery:-)

A bike hit you?????????
OMG...u should have not let the guy escape...
That’s not the way to hit upon a girl;-)
I guess people can’t help themselves when they see a knock out like u:-)

suruchi said...

Sm...
Thank you... I am already well and about:-)

suruchi said...

Shayon...
Hmm...mein gir gaye...
Not metaphorically....but literally*for a change;-)*

Your innuendo is not so obscure baby...
I get what you are hinting at!
But jhuk ke kiya hua kaam is as bad as gir ke kiya hua!
So why go half way when you can go all the way, right?

Hum gir ke cheezen jhukate-uthate hain!;-)

suruchi said...

Hey Pavitra,
Thanks for the hug...
That’s my first hug by the way...:-(
*What a sucker’s life it would be without my blogger friends!*

Hahaha...what u recounted in your two lines are funnier than my two page post...I just imagine the running for no reason at all...
And the cow running ahead with a tilted head looking your way, as though saying:
“Chill missy, it ain’t you I am after!”
;-)

Yup...my friends are the best-est*beaming with pride*
:-)

Hopeless Romantic said...

On the other hand, makes me remember one anecdote...Once a guy went into the IIM A interview...geek, specky, lost hairs...as soon as he entered the room..he fall over...got up and rather than feeling embarrassed , replied to the panel...atleast i fell in the right company...no wonders, he was selected...and he was Harsha Bhogle...

Take care and stop falling..either on ur knees or for guys too ;-)

Love,
Amit

"giri hui aurat" :P

Cinderella said...

Hey you, I hope you are in better form now to hear one sorry tale of mine and so feel happy for yourself.

Had newly learned driving a scooty. My being a fragile 41 kgs, the scooty being 92 and mum being 56..i decided i was macho enough to take her for a spin. So spinning we went. Were standing at the traffic signal, believe me simply standing, I had my legs on the ground, holding the handles, mum sitting behind...and suddenly i notice the bike tilting to my right n I'm like "huh?"

I crane my neck to see whats happenin behind and I see my mum, fallin, ekdum slo mo me, happily sliding backwards (she was sitting Indian style na).....slowly her legs went went up her bum slided down and as she went down she took the bike with her.

And I'm still standing their, the bike fallen, mum fallen and me legs apart....no bleedin idea what to do.

We finally managed to get up and cross the road before I burst out in humongous peels of laughter and mom promising never to sit with me again !!

suruchi said...

Hi Sudhir...
Thanksssssss...why don’t I get updates to your blog?
Now I need to go there and find out what’s happening with u...there’s anyways always so much happening with you:-)

Maybe all this falling down is because I am falling apart*sigh, sigh!*
Thank u ‘a pain in the butt’
:-)

suruchi said...

Hellooooooo Rahul...
Mere saath aise giri hue harkatein he hote hain...woh to mein khud thode ‘khadi’ hue hoon to girne se bach jaate hoon...
Par aakhir kab tak...
Mein bhi to insaan he hoon...
Mujhe bhi to chot lagte hain....
Khush to tum bahut hoge na aaj...haaiin;-)

Don’t u worry...the above dialogue is for bhagwaan ji standing at the aisle of the temple...Amitabh Bachchan ishtyle mein...
*lagta hain ghutne ke chot ka asar dimaag pe padh gaya hain...waise bhi lambe logon ke akal ghutne mein hote hain...isssshhhhhhh....ab shutting up:-)*

suruchi said...

Hi Ayu...
Yes my dear...I shall be very careful next time...
If I fall again...I should fall full fledge n in someone cute’s arms...
The road was not at all a flattering proposition;-)

suruchi said...

Hi Nipun...
Thank u ji n welcome to my blog...
And this is just one case of teacher roaming with an I-pod...
Wait till you read the rest of the posts to realize what not this teacher is up to...no puns intended;-)

Kisse ne bhi nahi uthaya...
Bedard duniya waale...:(
Btw there were sparsely scattered people n not worth picking me up...
Woh uthane aate to mein giri rehna he pasand karte;-)

Thanks for following...hope to see u around:-)

suruchi said...

Hi Blunts...
Acha abhi bahut ho gaya okay...
Utho utho...yeh bowing down ho gaya...

Aise gir padne waale kaam aapko shobha nahi dete*woh mera domain hain;-)*
And aag mein ghee daalne waale bhi nahi:-(
U n Buckingfastard are not just anonymous but mean anonymous:-(

Love still,
Giri hue aurat;-)
*aurat!!!!!! Reminds me of sad B-grade movies like Zakhmi Aurat n Aurat Ke Inteqam...ewwww....how LS!*

P.S. Thanks for the bowing down...made my day:-)

suruchi said...

OMG Cin...
You are outstandingly hilarious!
Hahaha....
Just read the write up again...I was laughing out loud throughout, picturing the sight;-)
You should write humour...u’d rock at it babes:-)

My LOL moments from ur comment:
Being “macho enough”...macho n you...ya right?
It’s like the pretty butterfly trying to challenge to lift the tree;-)

“I’m like ‘huh’?”
Mom falling “slo mo” mein...
Bum sliding down!
And mom promising never to sit with u again...

ROFLMAO...
U are super duper adorable!:-)

Shayon said...

Tanvi said...

Hahaha Hilarious! ... But first of all *consolation* Hope you are feeling better now. Get Well Soon!

Your story reminded me for a school friend who used to fall out of no where just randomly. [No water, no banana peel, no slippery surface] Wham, she wld be on the floor just-like-that. We used to tease her 'tu kitni giri hui hai K...." Hehehe!

suruchi said...

Hi Tanvi...
First of all thanks for the consolation...feeling absolutely fine now...

We should have a feature like:
The 'whams' n 'thuds' of duds;-)
Looks like I am a self-certified gira hua now;-)

Thanks for stopping by:-)

Dusk said...

You are just lovely! And funny!!!!
I adore your vivacious vibrant personality... it just jumps off the monitor!!

...the main thing is...you rose with dignity. The only thing hurt was your knee right? (which sounds awful :(...not your pride.

suruchi said...

Awww..thank u Dusk...
Wow...see u came n brought the sunshine...

Helloooooooo all u people who are calling me 'giri hue';-)
See...the only thing hurt was my knee n not my pride...:-)

suruchi said...

Hi Niraj...

Arre these things happen with everyone...we just need to laugh them off to be able to make that masala lemonade out of separate ingredients, just like you do Mr Lemon:-)

The wound is better...the pain is gone but the scar remains:-)
Such is life:-)

And woh investment kab aa raha hain?
Kab se sun rahe hain ke aa raha hain...aa raha hain...;-)

Anand M said...

yep, mere jaise "Bhadra Purush" cheeze ko cheeze hi samajhte hain(English wala)...aur Bujrgoon ne shayad ye kahin padh liya hai lagta hai..."Ignorance is Bliss"..shayad isi liye unke liye intended advise un tak pahuch nahi paa rahe hai..!
