I am far better than 'em.

I still remember the time ( some 9 years back) when my sister kicked me in her sleep and which resulted in myself falling down from the bed. The reason behind her well aimed kick in the sleep was the blanket ( Actually it was me but I would rather blame the blanket. Its always a nice feeling to put the blame on someone else) I am a person who feels very cold when it is just little chilly weather. For example, now its monsoon time and its raining 24/7 and usually ppl won't feel cold that easily unless its really and really cold but throughout these days, I will feel comfortable without fan for the whole day. So on that fateful winter night, unknowingly in my sleep I pulled her bed sheet for myself. And my sister, unknowingly in her sleep, kicked me out of the bed. But let me tell you it was not a monsoon time in chennai, but a cold winter time in Delhi. Recently my dear friend was pulling my legs about such nature of mine. My friends finds it quite amusing. It reminds me of different people's behaviour, whom I knew in Delhi.

The next building twins whom I knew where one such amusing example. One guy would feel very lazy to have his bath everyday due to the cold weather. So he would go on without having his bath for a week. He, atleast would change his clothes everyday. While the other twin would be lazy to even do that. He would change clothes once in 3 days!!! Ultimately no one would know about it since he would be wearing pullover or jacket when he comes out. But one fine day, his mom disclosed this secret to us!! She pleaded, begged, scolded, threatened, cajoled him to not to be like that but when there was no signs of his changing his habit, she simply called all the kids on the block and told this. Out of embarrassment, he started changing his clothes everyday. But I don't know about his bathing habit!!


During that time, it would be very difficult to get up early in the morning for schools and offices. After all, who would like to leave the cosy and hot blanket and bed. Ultimately all the kids would get up late and go to school late. To avoid this situation, my neighbours, brother - sister duo used to wear their school uniform and sleep. The next day, their routine would be getting up, brushing their teeth, combing their hair, eat the breakfast and off to school. Trust me, most of the small class kids used to follow the same example.


I even remember all the mothers in my colony grumbling over the fact that all the jeans and shirt pockets were having lots of ground nuts in it. And also the complains of mothers of tiny tots. According to them, there was no point in mopping their house everyday since all the tiny tots do is wet the house every half hour!! Now actually that's not fair. After all these lil kids would also feel cold right.


And sleep - it was something that used to come in few seconds! No one used to have sleeping problems at that time. Most of the time boring classes would make us sleepy but at that time, on would find kids sleeping even in interesting classes. In fact, one can find even teachers snoring away in the staff rooms!!! We used to wait till the teachers sleep so that we can submit the last minute homework to avoid scoldings for late submission. 


Though I suffer a lot during winter time, But its one weather which I love the most!
