Well something about me...
Hi everyone...I am Sreejith. I like to be called Jithu. I am from Kerala, the southern corner of India. It's just now that I'm 17, but i do have plans to grow older(i can't help it) I am just the fun-loving type of guy u want to meet. Write to me, so i can get to know ya all... I completed my school and waiting for admissions to College, and I'm going for Engineering. so wait for a while while I return being an engineer. i'll keep posting so don't forget to check back...Now I'm simply sitting at home or learning to drive. sitting at home, i see movies- hollywood, bollywood and our own Malayalam movies. ask me about those, i have a lot to write. I also read- this time only English and Malayalam, not much of Hindi. So that's me, Sreejith.Sreejith's Place On Net Wednesday, May 25, 2005

i feel like bloggin but not in a mood to get online now. so i ll blog now (4:14 pm on 19th May) and post the blog later when i get online. without broadband, that's anyway more economical. so for arnd past one week, i ve been lazing around. as i said earlier, i reached back on sunday. i was alone all monday. tuesday, i had planned to go to sony's (my classmate) place but my schoolmates- ajeesh, anup, abhi and jibu (who was also once my neighbour) dropped in to talk abt e-biz. it's interestin, but i dont think i cn ask achhan abt it. i am not sure how to ask. so let the matter drop for now. wednesday, i went to sony's place. her grandmother had made delicious and spicy fish curry to be had with kappa (boiled and mashed tapioca). i had a fill. then we went to her sister's school to pick her up. then they left to buy bangles for sony to wear for her hostelmate's wedding. i came back home.
yesterday also, i was alone, with my books (control system textbook, mechanical engg lab record and Robin Cook's Seizure.). in the evening, i called up pushpa teacher, havin heard that she's yet again returned to my old school, this time as vice principal. she ws busy at the time, and called me back at arnd 9.50 and we talked till 11!!!!

i am back home at Trivandrum. i reached here at around 11.00 a.m. in a KPN Volvo Airbus that came via Madurai, Nagarcoil. the road is mostly free and excellent, but there are a few very bad patches. But being volvo, there was no probs at all. However, the ac got some trouble and we lost nearly one hour at Salem, waiting for someone to repair it. Now, i am at home, achhan and amma have gone to their office. i may go to Vacation Library sometime now.
will write in detail later (now i am on a broadband, going billed time-wise so jus can't sit, think and blog.)

when did i blog last? on saturday morning. now it's already monday afternoon n i was very very busy during the weekend! saturday, we had lunch at Kamath Bugle Rock, a smashin north Karnataka restaurant near bull temple and bugle rock. there was jowar roti, sweet holige, mulaku bajji (chilli covered in dough and fried), rice, etc. it was very filling! after that, we walked around a bit in the park behind the bull temple that has the Bugle Rock that was one of the limits of the city during Tipu Sultan's period. the park is so green and well maintained.
after that, we went to the more local and open markets of bangalore city, those near avenue road and KG road. had a good bargain regrding my textbooks to be bought second hand at avenue road. the gulf bazaars, that sell goods brought in from the middle east, are also doing great business in this metro.
sunday also, began late for us. had our breakfast from Annakuteera opposite the Big Bazaar at BSK, barely 10 minutes walk from home. then we went around the various factory outlets along the ring road near kamakhya, again within walking distance. after all that, we went to garuda mall near mg road. we haunted shoppers' stop and westside mainly. we had our late lunch at the foodcourt at the mall, from subway. then we went to iim, where my aunt [achhan's (my dad's) sister] is working and staying. she's staying at the institute quarters. the drive was short. bannerughatta road is getting better and better. i remember coming here even 4 years ago, when the area was largely slum and there were a few highrise apartments coming up and a lot of buffaloes. now there are only residential highrises, mnc's, air conditioned shopping centers and luxury sedans all along the road. the change has been tremendous.
at our aunt's place were her son, his wife, her parents and brother, and my paternal grandmother (achhamma, or achhan's amma). sitting there, i saw schumi win the german grand prix and was made to sing a song.
achhamma and i sat and talked for a long time. i see her very often these days. she was talking of her grand children (i am one of them) and what she wants to see in all of us. it was around 8.30 pm when we reached back home. we had dinner and as i was feeling very sleepy, i went and slept. chechi and ettan were in front of the tv, watching titanic the movie.
and today, all morning, chechi was here. she was doing some work and i was surfing the tv. we went out to big bazaar, bought some stuff for home, had lunch at the food court over there (alu paratha and paneer parathas) and came back. chechi left at around 1.30 pm to office. she's got a meeting but ll be back by 6 or 7 in the evening, i believe. now i m going back to watch tv.
it's 2.30 pm IST

i posted my last message at around 11 in the morning, of 5th may, IST. after that i went to crossword, a big bookshop at Residency Rd, bangalore. sat there reading. then v (chechi n i) went to the cafe coffee day outlet in there, had cold sparkle, coffee with coconut (coconut's just great- especially wid me comin frm kerala, where everything has coconut in it). then went back to crossword, n i read some stories by franz kafka. no wonder there r so many fans for him- his works r jus deep! i want to read somemore in detail to assess him properly, though. after that we left n stopped at Jayanagar for normal window shopping- no big malls. just walking by the road in front of shops that bulge onto the pavements. traffic was ok today, at least the offpeak time during which v were on the road. v reached back at around 4.45 pm and now it's 5:30 pm and comedy time on many of the malayalam (my mother tongue) channels when they show comedy clippings from movies. about malayalam movies- another of my favorites- i ll write later.

so finally i'm bloggin...
i'm now at bangalore, the it capital of india and next week i may be at trivandrum, the capital of god's own country kerala and after that at thrissur, where i am an engineering student. so life goes on at all these places and many more that i visit sooooooooo often...
i ve been at bangalore for the last two days, with my sister who is working as a retail analyst with one of the big british retailers. i often go out for a drive. it's just a great experience, a drive thru this city- so disorderly, so confusing and so dusty. i spent time on the pc and bang! this idea comes up- why dont i blog? and here am i,blogging away...
now... i tell u- i wont b at bangalore all the time. i did my schooling at Trivandrum, a not so metro a city. my parents r still there, so r most of my school mates. so i go there for almost all vacations n long weekends. i occasionally come over here, but i spend most of my time at thrissur, a town in central Kerala, often called its CULTURAL CAPITAL, where i'm doing my b.tech in electrical and electronics engineering. nothing so serious n studious. with studies, u jus get on...
today, chechi (sister) n i are plannin to go to some place on residency road, so ll b enjoyin the drive... well life's like that- u browse, u drive, u c movies, u eat, u drink... all until the college reopens. then again, u browse, u drive, u c movies, u eat, u drink....
