They don’t make men like this anymore.

Dictionary says that  gentleman is
(1) a man who combines gentle birth or rank with chivalrous qualities 
(2) a man whose conduct conforms to a high standard of propriety or correct behavior
I have been graced with a few gentleman in my life. If you have read https://mannkiwindow.wordpress.com/2011/06/20/love/ this is the same chacha that I am going to talk about now.
I had a friend over recently, I was busy with some work on the comp and was in my bedroom. Since my friend is a typical friend who feels he has no boundaries even when i work, he was yapping something in my left ear. My chacha was told that I am in my bedroom with a friend. He came till the door, said he was leaving and left. It truly takes a gentleman to not disturb someone while working. They don’t make men like this anymore!!!
There is one gentleman I have found around my age, we were traveling together and I had a bag with me. He asked me to keep it on the rack. I said I was comfortable with it. He asked, “how would I know how comfortable I am unless I try sitting without the bag” Good point! and I thought it made sense to keep the bag on the rack because he would be more comfortable if he knew I was comfortable. They just don’t make men like this anymore 🙂

On Traveling

Travel teaches a lot of things. Thanks to my job and because of His grace, I have traveled a lot last few years. For me, Surprisingly, Travel has taught me that people, dialects may differ but trees and dogs remain the same. The trees look the same, the dogs look just the same, the birds sound the same, the mountains look the same… only people look different. Why I wonder?

Maggi noodles and Tamil Nadu

I am off to tamil nadu for most of feb for my PCP in annamalai. Yes, I am looking fwd to it… since ages actually.
No, I am not done studying or preparing for it yet
Yes, Packing for the trip is again causing frenzy

I was chatting with a few people who have attended the course, one of the funniest things this Mumbaikar asked me to do was to eat as much maggi noodles as I could, while I could. I found it hilarious, and obviously told her so. She told me to take her word for it because when she was in south for the PCP, she terribly missed eating maggi noodles. I am not a member of Maggi fan club, but I enjoy eating it when mom is not around or if I feel hungry at 2 in the morning, which brings us back to my mom not being available. The way she described how much she missed maggi and how terrible she felt over there, I couldn’t help but have it for dinner 2 days back.
Well, I am considering this as a part of me gearing up for the PCP

I am going to be out of touch for almost a month. Please send ur prayers and hope I come back home in one piece. I will obviously be carrying lots of stories from there…don’t worry.
Wish me luck.
