They always smell good, even if it,s just shampoo.
The way their heads always find the right spot on your shoulder.
The way they take hours to dress, but in the end it's all worthwhile.
How cute they are when they argue.
The way you feel when you see their names on the caller ID after you just had a big fight.
The way they say "Let's not fight anymore," even though you know an hour later. . .
The way they fall into your arms when they cry.
The way they hit you and expect it to hurt.
The way they say ,"I miss you".
The way their tears make you want to change the world so that it doesn't hurt them anymore.
And many more. . . .

Well Well well.... Two months of seperation from my blog has disturbed my writing skills a bit.. But now, I'm gonna reuse all by writing skills, ofcourse for the sake of money.. he he he..
Here it goes.. Thirupathi is actually the place before Tirumala. Tirumala is the place where The Almighty Lord Venkateshwara resides. My trip to tirumala started on a fine tuesday night. Only my family members were in the trip,Dad Mom Bro nd me... From the beginning we got some mokkai's...
#1 As we entered the CMBT one of the buses to tirumala left.. So we waited for another half an hour vetti...
#2 We reached there Tirupathi by 1.30 Am. All the buses stopped and they informed that bus will start only after 3...
#3 Finally we reached Tirumala by 4.. My Dad and brother finished their tonsure duties firt.. We decided to go through Free darshan after seeing a 8 mile queue for 100Rs ticket..
#4 As we reached the end of freeway we got trapped inside a huge jail by 5 AM... At the entrance of this cage there was a board informing that they will open the door by 2 PM .. how sweet..
After this we had some luck in our favour... They opened the gate earlier than the time informed on the board.. 12 Noon.. The best thing that you can get in life is a Free Darshan of Lord Almighty at Tirumala.. Luckily our queue got stuck up and we had a good view of lord for more than 2 minutes... Mostly u wil get only 2 seconds as the volunteers will say "Jarugandi Jarugandi..."
Finally we finished our trip to Tirupathi and reached Chennai by 8 PM... It was nice to spend a day in a useful way during this vetti period..
