Re-lived the good old Gokak days!!!

Hi all,
My ugadi leave is over and i'm here again in office!!!
But this was the most hectic vacation of mine. Stayed in house for the least amount of time and travelled more.
I had been to SDMCET and saw the jaw-dropping changes there. The old road was tarred and nicely laid now. I could find footpath and the only thing missing was a traffic light!!
The faastfood is now called "AHLAAD" food court and gives a typical PUNJABI DHABA look to us..Met Akshays, Ammu,My sis et al and had real fun there.Fantasia is on Apr1 and i cant attend it!! Man!!! work sux...Yes ,it seriously does..
And the best part of my vacation was our school get-together in GOKAK. Well to tel more about this town is a taluka place in Belgaum District. Boasts of having 2 beautiful falls..Gokak falls and Godachinamalki falls..Both are eye catching. yogikol is another place which attracts people.But what attracted me was the get-together. It was arranged on 28th of April and thanks to all who rubbed their asses to make it a huge success..
Can u ppl imagine...we were more than 60 in number and meeting after 8 long years!! 60 is not a bad number at all...
As soon as i entered Gokak i was stunned at it's changed looks...wide roads,traffic signals, sign boards and the people havnt changed at all..
Was too too too excited to meet all of them and went to Gokak resort where the party was arranged.As soon as i parked the vehicle i saw Tejesh and group comin at the same time.Tejech was famous as "Bandal Naagya" (one who bluffs for every possible thiong) and could see patel,vaichav,Arun,Mahesh,sreedhar,sunil,rohit,swami and all those gals ...ashwini,Geeta,Sharada,snehal,sabiha,bhagya,rashmi et al..
The most beautifukl (For ME) was Bhagya...Or may be i dint expect her to look as gorgeous as she was!!! Now i've a crush on her ;-) (Hope bhagya reads this!!).
Then we had a drive to mahatma gandhi stone..had nice talk there and then back to resort..
Then slowly entered Mahindrakar madam...The head mistress of our school!!!! As beautiful as she was..8 years has not changed her at all.. and the best part is she still remembers me!! Though i dint complete my 10th in that school.!!!Thanks for that ma'am...
Then PY PATIL sir ..he remembers me too....Then vannur and Nayak sir entered. Nayak was the best...He taught us Kannada but we had every sort of fun in his class....Chidanand Latti,The most notorious of all the students was present there too...
he shouted and made every possible sounds in Nayak sir's class and the ultimate sufferers were Tejesh and I!! Latti never kept laughing after the pranks but we couldnt control our laughter...So we were beaten every time!!!
And met kaladgi and he is probably the one who has not changed at all...not his behaviour too!!!
nayak sir sang a song..By D.R.Bendre and we relived his class again by shouting!!!
By then even Shishir and Shivya had come from chikodi and had fun with them as well!!!
So ultimately it was a day to be remembered!!!
Will miss them for a long time!!
Then evening i had to drive back to dwd...And all the time i was thinking of the day i spent...every moment was so refreshing...So good...amit's murgod's acting, their confessions, Latti's pranks, Akshay Shetty's LATAN MAHARAJ reaction!! oh god..i sang the song , a bit aloud, "BAAR BAAR AATI HAI MUJHKO, MADHUR YAAD BACHPAN TERI, GAYA LE GAYA TU JEEVAN KI SABSE MADHUR KHUSHI MERI"...
Thanks once again to all the organizers who made it a great success and keep doing such things atleast once in a year...!!!
Thanks again,
