"Lets just go and don’t come back for a while" , I heard her say one fine day,rather vehemently.
It was Nishtha,my wife. I too, as a matter of fact, was bored to hell due to office ,meetings, note sheets,drafts blah blah blah and desperately wanted to wander out somewhere far off .As for Yuvi,the kiddo, well he was little small then to express his boredom but i felt that he too was showing languor in his own weird but cute way.
And after a series of discussions and around 10-12 phone calls to travel agents ( failed attempt to get some freebies ),Dubai was finally zeroed in !!
We booked few months in advance and since this was our first foreign trip, so we felt goosebumps way too often resulting into non-sense celebrations for the event called ‘Dubai Vacations’ at least 3-4 times during approaching months.
You know , as an Indian , one of the things that gives us a high is telling our relatives & friends that hey, we are going to foreign for vacations and they all be like ‘ waaaooooo man, great,its your time man, Jao enjoy Karo ! For a minute ,you wonder that well fellows , we haven’t found life on mars ,we are just going on vacations.On a lighter note, a few among these well wishers are people who actually wish that you miss your flight on the D Day :P :)
