The story so far

2011-May 2nd week-
Neighbour: So you're back! Nice to see you. I'm sure you're looking forward to this break after work.
Me:  Yes, I am. I just want to relax and do nothing.

2011-May 4th week-
Relative:  I've heard you're back. What are you doing these days.
Me: (Pause) Enjoying doing nothing. Will start thinking of options after a while.

2011-June 2nd week-
Friend:  I think you should start doing something, irrespective of whether you like it or not.
Me: (Sigh) Ya man! I know.  

2010 June - Flashback -
Things I want to do in the next 10  years:

  • Walk without crutches
  • Social Development
  • Do something in the Radio business
  • Sing for at least one album

2011- 29th June-  
Me: Papa, I want to bunk physio therapy tomorrow. I slept late as I  finished posting a note on FB at 3:40 a.m and then want to catch up on X-men, as it will run out of theatres and then have to go shopping with XYZ!

It's never too late to do what you might want to do 

Did anyone just talk about self- motivation :P

Let there be Light

So, India did win the world cup, eh and Dhoni is our man! Yes I know, it's stale news and we now have better subjects like the Ramdev Baba's fast to eradicate corruption to discuss. How I wish, there was a government who granted my wishes when I fasted. Well, I almost did, because the mess did not serve after working hours and they still refused to shift me into a single seater despite the stated.

As sleepy I am to write this post, I am equally desperate to complete it. Writing this post on the insistence of a very dear friend, but we might head nowhere. Trying hard to get my sarcasm out, but I guess I left it in the left over Italian dish I explored today at lunch. Sunday outing you see, the viscous habit of earning and spending that I have got into ever since I got that degree, from the place that wants to me to go back to it. A friend's status message on Facebook read today, " You never fall out of love, you either get thrown out or you walk away on your own" That place did the prior, after allowing me to clear the backlog of experiences; and so did he. I wonder if there is anything behind these experiences, well at least I hope something lies ahead!

The road map of my dodge leads to nowhere!  I'd got a call from a journalist to participate in an industry story. After a lot of (mis)communication, the quote was given. Fire alarm - One of the very first lessons of Public Relations - never participate in a story unless you've got all  your questions answered. So, My Lord, I'm ready with my quote, to paint this thing called life, but hang on, who's playing the journalist today?

This part of my life's called " The Pursuit of Happyness"

"An evil may sometimes turn out to be a blessing in disguise" - (A line from a book I've been wanting to read since long) Till then, Let there be Light :)
