CELEBRATION

What does it cost to have a Celebration .... (Imagine the scene as you read along)

A winter evening.
Four friends.
Rain Outside.
Four glasses of chai.



Hundred bucks for petrol.
A rusty old bike.
And an open road.


Maggi noodles.
A hostel room.
4.25 a.m.



3 old friends.
3 separate cities.
3 coffee mugs.
1 internet messenger.



Rain on a hot tin roof.
Pakoras deep-frying.
Neighbours dropping in.
A party.



You and mom.
A summer night.
A bottle of coconut oil.
A head massage.
Gossiping about absent family members.


You can spend
hundreds on birthdays,
thousands on festivals,
lakhs on weddings,
but to celebrate
all we have to spend is our TIME!!
