Friday Night Out

(Picture: Raunak and me (with my new hairstyle))

One of Ranjit's friend's family fell prey to Chickungunya. Every single one of them except for the youngest son and his 9 months pregnant wife (thank God for that!). I offered to stay with them for the night in the hospital, and it is scary to sit and watch everyone go through so much of pain. This is a small nursing home and the entire ward is filled with the members of the big joint family. I am sitting right in the middle, updating my blog and searching for "is chickungunya contagious?" Have a Mills and Boon in my bag to read later. In the 10 seconds I got to pick up some book for the night, I ensured that I picked up a one with a medical theme to fit the setting I am in.

But seriously, I hope all of them recover quickly, and do protect yourself and your loved ones from mosquitoes.

PS: Just got a call from home that Raunak is down with fever. It is going to be one hell of a weekend! And of all the weekends that passed by, this happens to be one rare one when I didn't want to do anything at all, just wanted some quiet time.

All wishes are granted...some are granted in reverse.
