Over a Cuppa Tea!

Over A Cuppa Tea!

A lazy weekend after all household chores, A few Episodes of Sex & the city later Over a Cuppa tea you don't yet know how to pass the time.
This is a story of so many of us young working professionals away from home.

Splurging in sin full shopping seems such a wonderful idea for us ladies.But if you are on saving mode for you've spent a lot recently over something,then involving in some window shopping also seems threatening.

The fact remains that you go out for window shopping and end up buying more than you would normally splurge in,boredom is such a fuel to such splurging. Especially with so many wonderful stores around offering so many options.The brands and the tempting sale season!

Sometimes draggy and depressing days become wonderful just at the sight of sale in the 
Tangs outlet or a Zara Store.

But if you have planned to stay house arrested for the fear of spending more than you could afford,weekend may get so boring.And Over a cup of Tea begin to get nostalgic about the times when the pocket money was limited and shopping was just limited to the festivals & birthdays,boredom hardly had time in our life.

The high school and university days  are so wonderful,We were often short of money & yet had so much fun.
Ad mist the monthly targets,Submissions,assignments,Classes,The harmless faculty,we somehow managed to fit in canteen time,skipping classes time for a recent English/Hindi/Telugu flick,raging juniors,impromptu karaoke,badminton games &sketching trips.

Having fun and making Friends is a cakewalk in the teens & early twenties.Long Conversations sharing crap,gossips,non stop bragging,the activities so common in our early twenties seems too difficult later.Does time change us all?

We all often  go through many friendship break ups in our lives,Some are short lived others just end-up on a cordial note with lets hope we never meet each other,You don't bump into some of those Friends or sometimes just ignore the ones you bump into.And only few of those close ones make it for your "Forever Friends" List.

Its a wonderful thing to be 'Friends forever",Its so comforting in situations when you have hard times with family.The "Friends Forever" become a backup family & you can run over to and lean your head into their shoulders.
We are often very happy in the comfort zone and never think about making new ones,And end up feeling these friends are enough for a Life time.

But often we face difficult challenges,when we move away from our cities for higher studies,that dream job or to accompany our spouse to other city."Friends Forever" become "Friends not so often!"

We depart with thoughts & promises to keep in touch through emails,texts,social networking sites & phone calls. 

The technology is so advanced,makes it pretty easy for Friends overseas to stay in touch!!In fact so Easy that we are so glued to the technology & old friends that we don't realize about the people around us!!With so many options with high end applications available,we hardly realize the need for real Human friends!

Texts replace conversations,Games & social networking replace people.
A very sad truth  but it is what we are up to,The latest technology is advancing but making us all so lame...

We have latest phone models with latest applications all updated so we don't feel the boredom but are forgetting people around.We are often so engrossed in staying in touch with old friends that we forget to make new ones around!

We are so engrossed in taking selfies & photographs  of a wonderful place we have visited that we actually forgot to enjoy the trip worst even we forget the name of the place.

We all have a friends list exceeding 1000 on our social networking sites..and still we are spending lonely weekends wondering Over A Cuppa Tea...

Life still existed without technology,And we had Real Friends back then!!
