And I appeared in the NEWS….

28 Jan

This was like every other day for me, when I would venture out to Forum Mall (shopping mall) which is 5 minutes walk from where I live…..It is one crowded place over the weekend, with stupid crowd, most of them being guys, who are there most of the times checking out girls, which is typical of guys….Well it is kind of an escape for me when I have nothing to do over the weekend, shopping, buying grossery…. In fact one of my very good friend calls it a railway station, which is an apt description of the place.

Well it was 26th of January 09, 5.30 pm, when I headed to the Mall, to shop. I somehow landed up in Landmark and was checking some dvds, when I could smell something burning….The first thing that struck my mind was is it some kind of terrorist attack, where they are planning to bomb this place….So I got out of Landmark and saw smoke around the food court, Transit…The security people where there and were asking people to immediately leave the place….Well things were managed pretty well….There wasnt much chaos and fire brigade was there within 10 minutes and the people were asked to evacuate and the entire situation was under control….I of course quickly moved out of the Mall and then headed toward home…


What I dint know was, that my quote with a big picture of mine would appear in one of the news publications (Mid-Day) two days after the incident….I normally spoke to a journalist who called me and asked what exactly happened and what was my experience…..But the only hitch was that my last name was printed incorrect….But guess its ok….

    your pic in the paper looks much better than most page 3 socialites 😀
    very refreshing smile you have! @ the risk of being naughty and only for the same of clarification, I have to ask – were u the cause of the fire?
    On a serious note – Its good that all went well and no one was hurt by the incident.

    Well Thanks for the compliment….No I wasn’t the cause of fire :)….In fact I wasn’t even aware till I got out of the place that fire had caused rite next to where I was shopping…..But yes it was an escape though only coz things were under control….:)
