Blanca and Antonia.....somewhere in santiago

Ok that wasn’t a mistake...for the uninitiated Santiago is the capital of Chile, besides that that’s where the main character of this post, Blanca lives.

i guess this is the first personal posting that im making in a looooong time and there is a very good reason behind that .

Blanca is a very special person. We met on skype, a popular p2p telephony service which conveniently is also a place for people from different parts of the world to meet up and chat (literally and not on the QWERTY pad :)).

So Blanca is a chemical engineering student who loves books and movies. more specifically Bollywood movies ....hehhehehee

Soon we became good friends, chatting about movies, culture, soccer, languages, marquez, neruda stuff that I don’t get to chat in midst of performance marketing :-) ...................

On and off she wud ping me and we start off on another arbit guppa trip on rajnikant movies and why do Indians have 237 dancers running behind them while romancing !

So today when she was up on msn.... quite out of the blue we started talking abt life in general and the careers and why she didnt wanna be a Chemical sister ...hhehehe( Ok that was my humor or humus )

so i jus casually suggested why dont come down to India......always thought of getting some non indian into the chutney ranks ...so why not a chilean chemical engineer ?...........

ok she was pleasantly surprised .....and asked me wether im serious ....which i said i was........

and then she dropped the liitle boy or the fat man ( depending on how u see it ...)

she asked me ....."I think i havent told you that I am a mother ....."

ok now this is where antonia comes into the picture......

tonia is the 3 year old cutebug who is being raised singly by blanca,after a relationship.

suddenly .....the chemical engineer from chile jus rose a few notches up in my mind .

somethings which come as a shock initially leaves behind a nice feeling as an afterburn........

Suddenly somebody who you thought of as a friend or someone in your own shoes jus turns out to be an astoningshly great person.....
