We had been to
I didn’t have any breakfast as I wanted to fast till I had my darshan and had offered my prayers. So I just put some stuff in a bag, told my mom (who was about to wake up in a few minutes) that I was leaving and set off around six twenty. I was at the bus stop by six thirty and almost immediately got the bus for Dadar and even managed to reach a little early. I was at Dadar by seven ten. Sandeep was still at Andheri but he said he’d be there in sometime. So in the meantime, I walked up till Dadar station and crossed the bridge to go over to the other side and we both reached there barely a few minutes apart.
We sat there chatting a little more and soon his friend who stays in his neighborhood joined us. I had heard about him from Sandeep, spoken to him directly over the phone as well but hadn’t met him before. So that happened today. We had a fun time and pretty soon it was eleven thirty and it was time to say bye-bye because we had to come back home and study. Typically me, I made a few calculations and told him that we would now get to see each other only after another twenty seven days. We didn’t want to, but we had to say our bye-byes.
I gave him a big hug in the middle of the road in broad daylight! I didn’t care. I was going to be away from him for twenty seven days!!!
