Earlier I had been to my cousin’s place from Chandapura Circle to Attibele, then another bus towards Sarjapura using daily BMTC bus pass (INR 70/-). From bus stop I always got picked up as they never let me walk the last one kilometer inside the layout.
On 1st December, my friend was planning the trip by car, so my cousin shared Google coordinates and while they stopped at the petrol pump, decided on the route, I spoke to another cousin who had just shifted to Tamilnadu from western part of India and was struggling with over 150 cartons - whom I was supposed to visit the following week.
My friend carried a bag full of fruits and god knows what. I got a stole for my cousin which I had picked from a fair in Kolkata. Both remained ignored because my cousin, like me, believes in soul stimulation, than senses. Exchanging gifts was for the semi evolved beings. For the truly evolved, gifting experiences, a part of you, positive presence, enlightening conversations is much more than a gift.
After a virtual tour of the house we settled for coffee and snacks.
