Bloggers meet - details!

Finally we met. TJ Swami and I were absent during the recent bloggers meet in London. So we decided to meet at my home and from there we planned to go to Chakra's house in Chesham. I was expecting TJ to come like Vikram in Anniyan with his long hair hiding his face, but unfortunately TJ had cut his hair and looked more like Remo in Kannum Kannum Nokia ;) After a brief chat, we took the tube to Captain Chakra's house in Chesham. The scenaries we encountered during our travel were awesome. With green valleys and large trees on both sides of the track, for a moment I felt like getting onto the top of the train and start dancing for the song .."Chaiyya Chaiyya" from Uyire! Luckily, there was no way for me to get out - so London was saved from a severe mishap! We arrived at Chesham and called up Chakra to tell him that we had arrived. While we were waiting for him, TJ and I popped into a bakery shop and bought some nice flapjacks and were munching happily. When Chakra came (Listen to Chakra's Introduction Song!) , the entire area came to a standstill. Everyone stopped their activities and stood as if their national anthem was playing. For one second we were wondering what on earth was happening and it took us some time to find out that the Captain of Chesham has entered the area! Chakra came and wished us and took us to his house, and suddenly we started hearing "Long live Captain!" - wow, even our british people have learnt our culture properly :)..

After arriving at Chakra's house, he gave us tea and biscuits. We chatted for almost 4 hours. I was mostly the silent listener since I didnt have the intelligence as TJ and Chakra had. Then we decided to get some food and went to a local take away ( TJ what was the name?) and bought naans, curries and different varieties of rice. When we came home, we found that one of the rice was missing and Captain Chakra got wild. Unfortunately we didnt have the number, so Captain phoned the Chinese shop next to the Indian takeaway and "ordered" them to give their neighbor's number! The Chinese (true to Jawarhal Lal Nehru's statement "Hindi Chindi bhai bhai") got scared of Chakra and gave the number immediately. Chakra then called up those guys and said that the pilov rice was missing and asked them to bring it immediately. We couldnt wait for the rice to come, so we started munching the food. Then the takeaway guy came ( yes u guessed it right - he wore a red cap!), gave the food to Captain Chakra, fell at his feet, then kissed his right hand (Batsha style!!). TJ and I started looking at each others face! We realized that we were sitting next to a great man who was like a godfather to the people of Chesham!

After dinner, it was time for us to bid goodbye to Captain, and took the tubes back home. Inside the tube, TJ was in a jubilient mood and was "pestering" me to take some pics of him :)) . Finally, my station came and I got up and waved goodbye to TJ. A great evening came to an END!

Super account of the maanadu Arjuna. The Hindi-Chini was too much.
Krishna,
Unda kalaipu thondanukkum undu. After the marathon day, only ppl like Dr.Ayya can have the stamina to sustain. It was midnight when i was almost asleep and Dr.Ayya was cliking. Mathapadi, it was whale of a day, enjoyed it to the core.
