Machchan Enge Da irukke !

Meeting point - The most time consuming place.

When people ask me to meet at some public place, I convince them to turn down that plan. Instead I offer a pick up at his home, and journey forward to the place together, rather than meeting at a place. Why ?

Thats because, I've wasted a lot of time waiting for others. I'm too very punctual, that I'm atleast 10 to 15 minutes earlier than the mentioned time. And then, the other person comes nearly 10 to 15 minutes later than the mentioned time. Thats close to half an hour wasted. Well, I have no use for 30 minutes of a day. But yet, it is a pain to move your neck around and look for people on the road, to identify our Late Man.

Especially Movies. When people dont turn up and you have their tickets, you turn restless. You almost walk like walking outside a Surgery hall. I've seen Cellphones in maximum use, only outside the theatres. Even terrible is Train Stations and Bus stops.

The photo on top, is another bad example of a meeting point. They are in the middle of the beach sand. They didnt have cell phones, and they were waiting for some more of their friends. Obviously, they couldnt meet and left the place after some 40 minutes. ( I was sitting close with my friends having a great chat ).

Sandhippoma ! Iruvarum Sandhippomaa ?
July Kaatril, Jupiteril iruvarum Sandhippoma !

Ketka nalladhaan irukku. But Wait panni paarunga, kashtam puriyum !
