You'll be missed in Chennai....

Errr. Less than a week to go for my baby sister’s wedding. She leaves to Pune then. I’m sitting here wondering how the hell am I to fit all that I wish to say in one blog post. I mean there’s just so much that I want to tell her. Like tons and tons!! Here’s my feeble attempt though:

Sneha and I grew up together. As only kids to our folks, it was but natural that we hung out together, went to the same school, had a common group of friends, played, watched movies and so forth. I’ve said this in a previous post – Sne was a star! At school, outside, in our family..man she was all over the place! I can’t believe that this lil’ one’s about to be married and is going to be someone’s wife. Shudder. How quickly they grow up! When I was in the US for about 4 years, Sne would be the one to keep me posted on every single happening in India – she’d constantly mail me pics, write on FB and generally would do her best to ensure that I didn’t miss out much. I remember every single mail of hers would end with ---- “Wish you were here, missed you shit loads”!! Haha. That’s Sne and her stupid lingo for u.
We’ve done this together for over 15 years now!  Can’t tell you how much I’m gonna miss you. Here’s to our craziness, Sne...

Younger Days at Trichur Zoo with Vivek, Ashwin & Rajaram

Fun times at Annanagar – school, Achala Vihar, Hema ma’am’s paatu class where we used to speed on our cycles (needless to say in our silly shorts!), movies, having a blast at Thata and Thati’s house with Vivek & Ashwin and then later on with the fun twins, sleepovers at both our homes, giggling away at family get togethers, dance classes with John Britto(!), French classes at Alliance, chaat at Gangotree and Shree Mithai, random pizza moments, hogging away at weddings, engagements and what not(yea we are foodies, what to do!), drives to the beach, kuthu night at Pasha and all the after parties, celebrating festivals – Diwali, Golu hopping, making fun of random mamis(oops), cricket matches at Chepauk and at home, all the fun at my wedding esp DJ Jiju’s dance night, all our trips so far – Kulu Manali, Kodaikanal, Ooty, Yercaud, Coimbatore, Bombay, Goa, Delhi, Simla, Agra, Jaipur, Shringeri..Gosh I could go on and on... but most importantly being there for each other come what may.

Sne and I surrounded by juniors at my wedding - Can it get any cuter? :) 

Snuggy, you’re about to be married and I can’t think of a better person that you could have chosen. The few times that we’ve hung out with D, he seems so apt and perfect for a nut job like you! ;-)   I wish you both a lifetime of happiness, togetherness, fun times and everlasting love!
