My Rainy Sunday

Home / GulSpace / My Rainy Sunday

Woke up with a start when the bell rang this morning. It was 10. And I’d overslept. Even for a Sunday. So much for having a dog. Apparently some dogs wake up their owners at like 6 everyday. Milo is not one of them. He wakes up when I do.
It’s pouring cats and dogs. Trying to take the dog out in the morning rain is another story. Managed to get his raincoat on, grabbed my umbrella and we went out. Now, walking a dog who doesn’t want to get his feet wet can be painful. And it was.

Back at home, I realise I am late for a resident representative committee meeting. More politics follows. This was supposed to my relaxation day. Hair cut , a run and then curling up on the sofa to read and finish Tuhin Sinha’s Of Love and Politics. Riding the Enfield is ofcourse out. However there is still hope. I could be done with the haircut, the run and still be back at home for a late lunch. Milo and I leave for the salon. Saroj, my man friday offers to drive us( Milo too, with all the rain and Bombay’s reputation for flooding can’t risk leaving him at home, incase I get stuck somewhere). Once I reach the salon, Milo, after seeing the rain, decides to stay in the car!!

What was going to be a quick trim now becomes a long drawn affair with me being talked into colouring my hair. 4 hrs later, I head to the gym for a run. I strain my eyes in the locker room mirror to catch a glimpse of the ‘colour’ that has taken so long. Not seeing much I head for the weekly run. Or atonement . An exhaustive leg workout, run and shower later I finally head home. Milo, waiting patiently in the car, licks my face clean of all the moisturiser I had just applied. And it’s still raining as we crawl through traffic.

An early dinner, follows another attempt to walk Milo, failing again. I am on the couch, not quite curled up, 6 hrs later than planned , finally reading my book( with Milo in my feet). Yes, I could still call it bliss.

      Hi Gul

      It was a pleasant surprise to see your blog entry. Seems like you are blogging once in a blue moon only nowadays.

      It was a nice read. Now that we know what your Sunday was, let me tell you how my Sunday was.

      It was a rainy Sunday here at Kochi too. That is it began and ended with rain. I woke up to rain at 8 am. Lazily, helped Ma with some cooking, went for a movie “The Blue Kite” (Mandarin). Took two books from the library. Now reading “The Maruti Story”. Read the weekend’s paper. Cycled after quite long for some time. Watched another movie on TV “Calcutta News” (Malayalam). Now it is raining here like in the morning.

      Do post more often.

      Hi

      Gul,

      Your daily Diary detail are interesting.
      Your pet milo is very lucky to lick your beautiful Visage.
      Like Dhoni you should also not trim your hair
      You look very sexy in long hairs

      Yeh Mumbai ki barsat mein apka bhigna
      Bhige badan mein angdai shuban allaha
      Kash humko bhi didar ho sakata apke husan ka
      Humse jayada to milo Kush naseeb hain

    7. Gul Panag

      Hey, just saw the trailer for “Turning 30.” Looks great. 🙂 good luck.

      And this line from Purab Kohli was nice:
      “I can’t be your rebound sex toy forever.”

      If I were single, I’d have disagreed with that.

      on a lazy Rain sunday
      make it a funday
      just chill at home
      as pot hole of Mumbai
      can mar your dayout
      so make it a home day
      Just tweet & connect
      time will fly when you are on the net
      day will become night
      just embrace the cloud
      you will be on cloud nine
      so rain makes your day
      just tune to jagjit singh eh baarish ka mausam woh kagaj ki kashti !

      Hi Gul

      I have read about your Herbal Smoking in a movie. I appreciate your sincerity for spreading anti smoking message. Also the evil of tobacco was told by Guru Gobing Singh during his time. It is now established by Medical science the cancer causing property of tobacco smoking.

      Some peoples are inspired by

      Sanasar ki her shai ka itna hi fassana hai, ek Thund se anna hai, Ek thund mein Jana hai

      I congratulate you for showing concern for not smoking a Cigar!

      I think Cigarette smoking should be banned companies like ITC are diversifying to change business line.

      Gul your views for a great cause should reach masses.

      This is also a great service to Humanity. As prevention is better than cure.

      We must take pledge not to touch tobacco.
