Some bumps in life can make you smile
Really sorry--I have had to remove this post as it will soon appear in a book. Making it available online would have been very unfair to my publisher who has placed so much trust in me. I hope you enjoy the other posts as much as you enjoyed this one. A heartfelt thanks for your support and understanding.Thanks for continuing to read what I write.
very nice post. :)ReplyDelete
Thank you Guru :) Writing this post was the only thing I could do to cheer myself up :)ReplyDelete
Pregnant woman collapsing - so scary even to imagine! :) I am thankful at your stars that you were ultimately fine!ReplyDelete
Shalini: I did have the presence of mind to sit down before I collapsed :) So it did work out well. I would like to think it was like a kind of graceful slide :) and at that time too I found it hilarious :)ReplyDelete
:) Really nice, here's hoping your back pain vanishes soon. Take care.ReplyDelete
Take as much as rest as possible. That is the best way to counter back pain.ReplyDelete
Get well soon!
Blog posts can wait. We are going no where :)
Pooh pooh - go away back pain! :DReplyDelete
Thats a cute account but I can imagine how worried your folks might have been. Are you talking about Eloor Lending Library? The narrow stairs - so typical of it! That was my haunt in those days and I might have run into you there ;-) And I rem the nerdy guy - poor fella might have had the shock of his life! ;-D
OMG ..how much ur parents wud hav frightened..ReplyDelete

And on that internal switch..i guess everyone would wish for one such switch..oh i need one badly to escape from this longggg running meetings ;)
Nice post preeti...and on that back pain..keep laughing it will run away from u :)

btw my uncle had similar trouble too when he used to go the library...but in his case it was the beer belly!!;-P
mathew: LOL :) heh heh heh. Thankfully no beer in my belly :)ReplyDelete
Piggy little: That he suggested as then your husband would have to take care of you and they could be absolved :)
Sundari: The expression on his face was really hilarious :) Internal switch is a great idea :)
Thoughtful train: yes--and yes :)
Varun: If I didnt blog I'd have died of boredom :) Thanks. rest assured and pun intended :)
Lol! I'm imagining the librarian's reaction and just can't help laughing :DReplyDelete
Ouch! I hate back aches!

About the switch, I remember, I used to teach my brother for his exams, And after while he would say to me in a very serious tone "didi, no matter how hard you try now,nothing more is going into this head, kyonki apni to batti gul ho chuki hai :-). So lets just stop studying now"
heyyy.. Get well soon Preeti. From ur blogs I know that you are a very active person. So hope ur back on ur feet soooon :)ReplyDelete

You always keep yourself so fit and exercise regularly. Then why the back pain! It's worrisome!ReplyDelete

Hope u get well soon! :) N abt incidentg! Gosh u r REALLY determined!ReplyDelete
Take care! I have a bad back and neck pain too for sometime. So I take brief blog break from time to time.ReplyDelete
Get well soon!
Its funny how one incident brings back memories of another:-)). U must be in really terrible pain to be taking complete bed rest. Please do take care coz TOTAL bed rest or surgery is the only effective medicine for back pain. My better-half lives with this horrible pain 265 out of 365 days:-(.ReplyDelete
And when u r better I want one of those lovely cards u make for ur readers. I TOTALLY think I DESERVE one....I've been ur faithful follower & reader & commenter & everything.ReplyDelete
Have backups Ps for such problems :D
Get well soon Ps.
Hope the back gets better soon... was a nice read! funny:) :)ReplyDelete
rest well(easier said then done) and get well soon.
however do remember back pain is a nuisance and once it has started it wont go away completely and easily.
you will have to take care of your back properly once you recover from it this time so that it doesnt resurface again and again.
there are certain physiotherapy exercises for the back which are to be religiously done after your pain subsides .
do get in touch with a physiotherapist if you have`nt done it so far.
p.s -i underwent a spine surgery 10 months back.thats why the above lecture.
had recurring back pain for 7-8 yrs.finally the surgery.
now i am absolutely fine(touchwood).
Just somene: yes--it was filed under 'Funny/amusing' :) Thank you.ReplyDelete
Reflections: you absolutely deserve a card. Do send me your postal address.
Nikhil: I have you :) That speaks volumes :)
Solilo: Is yours chronic. Mine I think should clear soon.
Shruti: If after all that i did not get the books what a waste it would have been! :)
Prakhar: That I am :P :)
Piyali: Glad you are ok now. Mine is not really lower back--it is more of a sprain on the hip because of one specific thing I did. Hopefully it should clear. I have been doing yoga for many years now. So i do have a flexible body. lets see.ReplyDelete
Priyanka: kids fuss over me :) that feels good :)
Suma :) Yes m'am. Whatever you say :)
Kulpreet: thank you :)
ani_aset: yes i did --but unintentional though :) Thank you :)ReplyDelete
Tranquility speaks: Much better today. thank you :)
SMM: I am --thank you :)
athivas: heh heh--what else could I do?! :) thank you.
Tamizhmaangani: thank you :)
Gayathri:Thank you :)

Get well soon :)

thankfully blore had a online library with a home delivery facility... i would get my stock delivered every week :)

Alright now, just one point; in what way do I fall short in deserving a card? :pReplyDelete

This comment has been removed by the author.ReplyDelete
imagining that sight just cracked me up...ReplyDelete
get well soon!
Raaga: heh heh--Yes--am okay now. Just put an addendum.ReplyDelete
Ruch: Ouch! But I'd say the limp was worth it. Proof that you are living not existing :)
Suree: Am okay now :) Thanks
Krish: am ok now. Why only once in 3 days?!
Shwetha: Now that you are here, welcome aboard! :)
was laughing like any thing when i imagined the situation!!!!ReplyDelete
Bold enough to climb stairs even after bed rest advice! :P
n regd back pain.. hope u r out of it now
Enigma: I think you can read anything unless of course it is depressing stuff. Usually happy thoughts are ideal. I would recommend but I don't know your tastes--it is highly an individual thing isn't it? See back cover and reviews and then decide.ReplyDelete
Shantharam: if I could play comp games in bed during my pregnancy I would have :) Thank you for your wishes--am ok now.
Partywithneha: yes--am ok now :)
Sparkling:Right as usual on both counts. Send me your address please.
Geetha: yes m'am :) done :)
Monika: Mine was eleven years back in cochin :) So no onlin or home delivery--lucky u :)
Ajay : :) Aye Aye Capitan. Whatever you say ;-)ReplyDelete
Dhanya: Yes..But in retrospect was funny. Am fine now :)Thank you.
Hunter: I think you left the comment while I was updating the post :)heh heh--glad it made you laugh :)ReplyDelete
Yes I am fine now. I was bold as it was my last surge of freedom :) After that I would be in bed for sooo long! Besides the prospect of nothing to do in bed was more terrifying than the prospect of climbing stairs :)
As usual it rocks with fun and ur style of narration. Good to see you up and about, happy times again!ReplyDelete
avvvv....7 months pregnant!! climbing stairs and fainting!! seriously scary thot...ReplyDelete
Thank goodness you got well. And Blog Adda recommended the comment section too , for fun reading :PReplyDelete
@Reflections: They were spectacular, every single one of them :)
Meira: :) yes--I noticed that :)Don't know wht they said that though :) Mebbe coz LOL, ROTFL etc is infectious :)ReplyDelete
Gils: Why is pregnancy scary? it isn't a disease! Its normal and natural :)
Srivats:Thank you! :)
Preethi, it is always good to be back on your blog after a long time away from the blog world. Take care of your back and glad to hear that you are better.ReplyDelete
I am so glad that you are fit-n-fine once again. We all really missed you and your wonderful posts :) ..ReplyDelete
I read your posts - but don't comment. Why? coz I don't know what to say :) But this one was different as we are expecting a baby in near future and I am kind of overwhelmed by the possibilities.ReplyDelete
But comments or no comments, I would keep visiting with hope that you keep writing :)
luv & blessings,
oh! I was late here. Good to read your addendem. So we can expect more from you here soon.Take careReplyDelete
Hey...How are you?..hope everythingz fine..and no more pain :)ReplyDelete
This post brought a smile on my face. It was the smile of admiration also-of your activeness and love towards life.ReplyDelete
i liked the bit where you came back to your senses to laugh at what was in store for you...n that internal switch is truly a Gods gift for protect( i wouldn't have survived my teens without that.forget teens, even now).ReplyDelete
Back ache is a pain in the neck! So glad you've recovered and risen anew from your bed!ReplyDelete
Hi...havn't had the chance to check your blogs in a while but love reading them when time permits.....I really liked your anecdote about your trip to the library( although, I must add, thank god you were fine after that.... ) Was that by any chance Eloor Lending Library? ( I couldn't do without that place at one point of time...: ) You really know how to see the humourous side to things : )...Hope you recover soon from your backpain, TC..: )ReplyDelete
You are so very positive and have such good comic timing. I was almost feeling guilty for being amused about a very pregnant woman blacking out!ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing :)
