This conversation is about those summer days
when there were no Malls ,Multiplex,and other High end shopping areas,
when call were made once a week and letter were written to friends and sis
when eating Chaat didnt meant ordering in a posh restaurent with different kind of fillings,
when summer vacation meant cousins at home and endless trips to bazaars for shoping knick knacks like bangles and earring and drinking lassi and  eating rabdi
when night were spent sharing stories and playing games on terrace with cousions
when Happiness was sharing Meetha Golgappa :-)

I love love love the dialect going on! :)
And, to me in the States, it made me feel like I got a little glimmer into your everyday world. I loved it. Thank you- It was such a refreshing change as I have been so submerged in other things lately. :)
