One good thing that I did after watching Delhi 6 yesterday was to go and buy a new Carrom Board!

It's been an old love and I had been itching to get the board since a lonnng lonng time...


I still remember the family matches we had almost every other night...Papa, Mamma, Mukund and I...

Nights interspersed with carrom and ludo...loads of matches and bets... We had lots of friends visiting us...weekends were filled with gaming sessions with friends...

And then suddenly, we grew up....


Cell phones, the Internet, chatting, I-pods, friends took over...

We still played, though now it was taken over by card games and general bakar after dinner...


Yet, somewhere all of us also missed the lovely games that kept us happy...


Isliye, Carrom has been on mind since a long time now...

Today, Mukund and I set our hands on the board after ages !


Wow..what bliss !!


Both of us have to get back to our earlier form...and it shall take time...


Yet, it's a start...

A wonderful start...
