Letters From The Hills-2

May 12, 2009

                                                                                                                                          The Hills



Greetings from India. Hope everything is going great in the land of Hercules and Hannibal. Yes, of course your regular updates on Facebook have kept us informed about your stay in Catalonia. Having said that, I would like to bring to your notice some important things that seem to be missing on your Facebook updates. But first, some news from the Hills.

These days, the Hills are blazing hot. No wonder, it doesn’t matter how much beer you gulp to appreciate the art of the Creator! On the other hand, I have to tell you that we have missed quite a lot of things earlier on in our lives. Despite our stay in the Hills for a long while, we have completely ignored a certain sizeable population which seem to be a breed apart. Our lives took a different turn the moment we decided that we have to go THE FARM.  Afterall, despite all these years, I still feel alien here. The only saving grace is that I speak their language. But desperate situations demand desperate attempts. Although, I am far from being a celeb of the Hills, I am just a common man who has come to terms with something which he hadn’t noticed, but only had heard legends about it. It’s not a legend anymore, but a deeper sense of mysticism prevails. No matter, how hard you try, you can’t break into the cordon. You can’t break the code. The only wise thing to do is to be the New Guy! Crazy Eyes! (Just Kidding!)

Coming back to your updates on Facebook, I can empathize and sympathise with your situation of your office building!..:P. But that doesn’t give you an excuse to ignore the larger picture. You have less than a month to go, and all you can think of is Football, Grand Prix and Rock Concerts!!! Come On!!! I know that you don’t take much interest in arts and literature, but you have a brilliant opportunity to explore the country side of the land which inspired some of the greatest artists like Piccaso. ‘Am talking about the Bison on the Walls deep in the mountains near Santander. It’s just 7 hour drive from where you stay. Coming back to your own city, I am pretty sure, you haven’t visited all the major works of Gaudi! And for a moment stop using the camera!!..:P We know it takes some wonderful pics, but am sure the naked eye captures a more graphic representation of heavenly creations. You have to be full of stories of things you have seen, certainly you can’t carry your photo album/laptop everywhere you go to!

Oh, Yes! How can I forget this! A distant cousin of Salsa called Flamenco is very very popular there! We expect you to come back with some cool moves!..;). You have stopped telling me the news about “ics”!! Arrrgh! And DO something in the coming few days. Time is running out and then USandA beckons you! You are probably coming back to The Hills at the right time. There are so many movies in the next 2 months that you will have to watch atleast 2 per day to cover everything. Hope you make enough time sometime in July for a trip to the Orient! I wanna hear to all your stories and 2-3 hours @ The Hills is not gonna be enough.

Seeya Soon. Write to me sometime.

Hastala Vista,


P.S: By the way, did you look around the Sagrada Familia Church and Torre Agbar?!!

P.P.S: For more details, please refer to Wikipedia!..Hehehe…:)

    Hola! Its great to see a virtual letter addressed to me. For sure, I want to come back to the hills and catch up on all the happenings there from you.

    But I want to point out to you that I have seen all major Gaudi works spending one full day at each location 😛 Probably, I didnt publicize them on my facebook that much 😀 Will try to do the remaining suggestions.
