Nostalgia


The credit for this post goes entirely to Pri (http://lifeofpri.blogspot.com/), my blog friend, whose latest post inspired me to come up with this one. Her lovely post has revived quite a lot of my pleasant memories. I loved the idea of revisiting them today......

- I still remember the days when during my summer vacations, I used to visit Nani's place and she used to apply henna on my feet every single morning while I was asleep, to ensure that my skin remains cool and I dont suffer from skin allergies. And me being me, used to cry every single time and complain about it. Now I miss that pampering.

-Where are the days when I used to play Ghar-Ghar with my colony friends during the summer holidays in the staircase or the bulding corridors. The days when I used to be really happy making the Parle G biscuits as the menu for my doll's wedding.

- I want to eat the Aloo Parathas and Shakkar Paras that my Nani used to make especially for me.

- I treasure the school days when we used to get the annual results, hoping and knowing that I would get the top rank and be called upon the stage.

- The days back when my dad used to come back from office with toffees without fail and how we used to rush down to help him carry stuff. Sometimes we used to pretend that we are sleeping when he arrives and then the whole process of he waking us up and we pranking on him used to start.

- I wish I could see my Mom asking Rs 20 everyday from dad for her auto fare even now.

- Miss those days when mom used to lock us in the house during the day, while she was away for work and how I and my sis used to get scared each time the bell rang. We were given Rs 10 a day for staying alone at home and not at the creche.

- Now I laugh when I think of the days when my school bus used to take me back to school without dropping at the pick up stop in the absence of anyone from the creche. My teachers used to love watching me cry and telling me that I will be eaten by a mouse.

- The day when I asked my dad to buy us Maggi for the first time, which was for Rs 5 per pack, is still fresh in my mind.

I read this somewhere and fits perfectly with what I am feeling right now.

"The most unfair thing about life is the way it ends.I mean, life is tough. It takes up a lot of your time. What do you get at the end of it? A death! Wats that, a bonus??

The life cycle is all backwards.You should die first and get it out of the way. Then you go live in an old age home. When you get kicked out for being too healthy, go collect your pension. Then when you start work, you get a gold watch on your first day. You work forty years until you're young enough to enjoy your 'retirement'. You drink alcohol, party and get ready for High School. You go to primary school, become a kid; you play with no responsibilities. You become a little baby, you go back and spend your last 9 months floating with luxuries like central heating, spa, room service on tap. And then finally you finish off as an orgasm!!"


I sincerely wish I could press the 'Rewind' button and live all those times again!

08-08-08

"One year one month and one day" he said and reminded me of this and I wondered how could I not remember...

Exactly an year a month and a day before, Rajiv and I were generally chit chatting on the phone...I had recently moved to Hyderabad and into this PG from the company guest house and needless to say, was missing dilli terribly. And then suddenly the uniqueness of the date (07-07-07) struck us and we decided to remember this day forever for years to come...and to meet or atleast talk to each other on 10-10-10. Nothing special except for the mysterious sounding dates...

One of the thought that went behind this deal was the natural course of our lives to get lost in this rat race of earning a living and achieving our goals and along the way leaving some friends behind...['Tanha dil tanha safar, dhoonde tujhe phir kyu nazar...' by Shaan in the background :D]...
We meet different people everyday, network around, make new contacts...and in this process some become friends...stay with us for more time than we actually thought of and then a few disappear along the journey...so we thought that this triple date funda was reasonably a good way of keeping a track of each other's life and be friends forever.

Now the ironical part...in this one year one month and one day, his life has quite a no. of updates; from changing job to shifting to a new house, to getting a girl friend to searching a wife...and here I am...with absolutely no change...zero...zilch updates, news, or views...its all the same...its the same me, my life, my thoughts, my job, my company, my city, my PG, my friends, my life...isn't this called the height of 'monotonous living'...

And its high time to make a promise to myself...come 09-09-09 and I will be have a changed life...not that its not good right now...but for better...no clue of 'what' and 'how' part of the entire scenario but it will...

So heres me, presenting my mantra for 2008-09...
"Break the monotony. Do something strange and extravagant."

Confused!

I do my thing
and you do your thing.
I am not in this world
to live up to your expectations
And you are not in this world
to live up to mine.

You are you and I am I.
And if by chance
we find each other,it's beautiful,
If not, it can't be helped.


Should this be my relationship therapy???

Errr...Some Random Thoughts

Its the same old story
With me as the main character
And my idiocy the other
Whenever life has something to offer
Am not game for it
But when I am after something
Dare it come my way :)
However, thats fun
But in retrospect
Am happy with what I have
Even if somethings not here presently
I can call it mine
Apparently, only the tense has changed!

Estoy Feliz

I am happy and gay (errr...I cant be the one u thinking about :P)... I thought why do I always get reminded of this space when I am sad and want to spill all my negative feelings somewhere? So this time I better knock its door when I am in a good mood... no reason as usual as...JLT (Just Like That)!

La vida es muy corta so better be happy all the time :)!
