Its pouring here. A week back if anyone asked me what I needed the most [Besides, more marks in my exam] I would’ve said Rain. I didn’t even have to think. But it seems that I didn’t think that through. I don’t remember if I have wrote about this before but, me and my friends have a ‘Tradition’. Every other week we make sure that, we all find time to go out to the city and have some fun. But its not easy as it sounds. Everyone’s in college in different parts of south India. But vacations, Study holidays, festival seasons are like goldmine for our ‘Tradition’ .  

The problem with Rain is that it throws cold water over our efforts, literally! Its not the same when everyone’s under their umbrellas, and one has to talk at the top of their voice. On the Sidewalks here, only one person can go in one direction if you are holding an umbrella. So we’ll be walking in a line most of the time till we reach somewhere proper to sit and talk. And less photos to upload on Facebook due to the fear that camera will be ruined in the rain.! Everything is so beautiful once it rains. Its a shame that we don’t get to capture all the sceneries.

As the topic now is Rain, I couldn’t help but write about Raina! Suresh Raina is my current favorite Cricket player. He’s the Indian team captain for their West Indies tour as Captain Cool Mahendra Singh Dhoni is rested. They are playing the first match today and I’m wishing all the luck in the world to him and the team. 🙂 

Just a little update

So what’s new?

Big news today is that my favorite team in the IPL, Chennai Super Kings won the cup yesterday 😀 I was so looking forward to the final match, and guess what happened?! I slept through the winning moments! It wasn’t a close match. I was pretty sure that its gonna be Chennai’s game from the beginning. By the time I got up, they were handing over the trophy. But its okay, all I want was that they win. They did, and I’m super happy. I wasn’t much of a help to them in the final match,  but I would like to think that I brought them to the final! Sounds Crazy?! I know 😉

To start off, I’m not a superstitious or spiritual or ‘any-of-that-kind’ person. But when it comes to cricket, I’m all that. I love cricket. But that doesn’t mean that I watch every team’s match. If I have to watch it, Team India must be playing . Or in the case of IPL, the team with my favorite cricketer should be playing.  In all the four seasons of IPL, its been Chennai Super Kings. And if you think that it so obvious and its because Mahendra Singh Dhoni is playing – You are so wrong! My favorite cricketer [Well, at-least for now] is … wait for it.. wait for it.. Suresh Raina! Stunned?! If yes, I don’t care! So, that’s why I support CSK.

Back to the point- Superstitions. Imagine that My team is bowling and badly needs a wicket. There I am hoping for a miracle, and it happens. They get a wicket. Whatever bizzare thing I was doing, the very second they got the wicket like adjusting the cushion, Or  sitting upright, or folding my hands or texting, or anything, I do it again whenever they need another wicket. Sometimes I change the channel for just 1 minute, my team hits a six! So I keep changing the channel till the end of the match. Its hard work, all worth it! 😀  Okay that’s enough. Hope you get the point.

What else?

I hate the climate these days. I usually like going out in the sun, but not now. Even walking 5 or 10 minutes in the sun is so tiring. Good news is that according to the weather forecast, its gonna rain here from tomorrow. I’m probably going to write about how much I hate rain, in the next few days!

Have you heard about the Vodafone Super Weeks? I was so excited because I own a Vodafone sim. And what do I get?

Week 1 : Free Facebook, Twitter and Orkut surfing. [Guess what? I already pay Rs 95 to get the 2GB internet on phone. I already have this plan activated so I didn’t get anything out of the Week 1]

Week 2: Download Games for free [ Awesome- I thought. But it turns out I was getting an error that it was not supported in my phone.]

Week 3: Free access to Yahoo Mail and Gmail [Again,  I have the 2GB plan activated. No use again]

Week 4: Free Cricket week. Access to all Cricket sites [Again! Need I say more?]

Week 5: Download unlimited songs for free. [Now that was something I like. But the Vodafone site had like 20 unknown songs and all very bad songs!]

Week 6: Free unlimited mobile internet [hmmm.. Rs. 95, 2GB. You get it]

And that was it. Super weeks was a total rip-off, for me atleast.

I know that the title of this post is ‘Just a little update’- But I had a lot to update about! 😛

Oh, and to all the football fans out there [Especially my two crazy friends] “Congrats Barca!”
