Ghar ki baatein

Seeing beloved faces and wondering how they;ce changed in six months. Banter.
The family (including very time-conscious and living-by-the clock type g'parents) stay up way past midnight for you to get home.
The folks switch on a Good-night mat because you're allergic to mosquito coils.
And then are SO excited about your being home that they come in to wake you up hour on the hour... jet-lag and sleep deprivation be damned :D
Papa proudly pointing out developments.... and you look on amusedly because this is where you lived and it just feels nice to be back, development or not.

Mum makes pudine ke chutney... though you didn't say a word to her about it :D
Gran and G'pa saying 'We were just waiting for that wondering why it took you so long' when you repeat your bachpan ka aadat of going and pulling their cheeks and squiching the living daylights out of them.
Dad says 'We programmed the st-box to get English channels just for you!' ... forgetting you don't actually watch TV :D
Dad also BLARES the Carpenters on the stereo... excited about getting the whole collection to listen to :)
Just being at home... wandering from room to room... and reconnecting... revelling... being on Vacation :)
Other things can wait.
Neo... I do miss you though. You better be planning me a grand re-union-cum-birthday party :)
