Sometimes, an act of staying debt-free is taken as an act of cheapness…

PILOT – II…!!

Filed under: Uncategorized — Mishra @ 05:04

Today I sit to write… again… like I do once in a while… but only difference is that this time I AM GONNA POST THIS. Think I always do, but after long….. veryyyyy long…. Writing something.

Missing it… writing whatever I felt like… writing for myself… for others… for no one.

Every time something good happens… thoughts meander to how it was earlier when every small thing rekindled something almost forgotten at the back of my mind… and that small thing rekindled a series of thoughts that found their place on this blog page.

 

Today, shayad for the first time have nothing to write about. No good is happening… there is nothing that can be considered as bad, as there is a strong believe that worse is yet to follow. Perhaps just have to crib about how much I have been missing this place. And I admit – tooooooo much. And I admit this too – it’s not job that is keeping me away from this… it’s not my reading or studies (if any J) or any person.. it’s just me… the laziness in me…

A good great thing that happened today was that this day marks the successful completion of my 2 years into corporate life. And have learnt a lot in this… All in a process of becoming a “something that cannot be named yet”.

That’s it!

And again, without any promises that I will return and when, I bid adieu… only to come back here… sooner or later… better sooner..!!

CATch CATch…!!

Filed under: Uncategorized — Mishra @ 01:04

Ever heard of a game “world of goo”…playing it these days… one level at a time…. and totally liking it… its a mind game…

The BEST thing about it is that if you fail at a certain level, you dont have to start from the first again… it resumes everytime from the level u reached last time….

and SECOND BEST thing is your performance at one level doesnot do any harm or good to your performance at next level…

   

Sadly, creators of this game didnt formulate CAT rules….!!🙂

 

 

P.S. yearly rituals continue… CAT and disappointments are 2 things I am gonna give myself in 2012… AS USUAL!!   ;P

Secunderabad Railway Station…

4’o clock in the morning…

a chilly morningggggg…

it had rained whole day the previous day…. it was still drizzling… and it was breezy…

Rohit was waiting for the train to arrive… all alone… almost the only soul on the long, deserted and dark platform… it was another 20 mins for the train to arrive… and this wait made it even more deserted and even more dull…

There was a touch screen machine put at the darkest corner of the platform to know how much longer for your train… and Rohit had already exhausted all the options there… twice… But since no other mode of entertainment was available… he went ahead to try it for the third time… still 15 mins to go….

Beta… kiska intezaar kar raha hai…” – a voice suddenly called…  Rohit, kinda scared, looked back… there was a police person standing… Rohit reached his pocket to check if he has his wallet with driving license…. He had it… >**sigh of relief**<

“train ka uncle…”

wo toh samajh mein aa gaya.. is platform pe bus ne aana kaunn sa aayegi tere liye… ha ha ha ha…….. ” – GOSHHHHHH…. he was direct and satarical… i liked him then and there only🙂 , “… kaun si train ka… kiska??

“sister ka… AP Express ka”

“ohh… itni subah bulaya hi kyun… kitni pareshaani ho rahi hai tere ko… kitni duur se aaya hai…

“kareeb 25 km duur hai uncle yahan se ghar…”

he he he… aur didi kahan se aa rahi hai… kopi aur train nahin thi ??

“nahin.. Agra se aa rahi hai… ek hi train sahi hai wahan se aane ke liye”

kya karta hai…

“job”

itni si umr mein kamaane laga… sahi hai… aur kitna mil jaata hai… kahan kaam karta hai……………………..”

and then discussion continued… a good discussion… it wandered from job to life to investment to insurance to  income tax to life again… waiting was less pain…

and then Train name was announced…

“Uncle… ab jaana hoga… train doosre platform par aa rahi hai…”

acha chal jaa… dobara aana toh milna…

“zaroor uncle”

kya naam hai teraa….

“Rohit….”

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhh……….. HINDU hai….

and then there was a longggggggggggggggg silenceeeeeeeeeee……………… awkward………………………………………….

there was no time to wait for the silence to die… train was already here…………….. Rohit bent and read uncles name badge: “PHULLAR”… dunno why but he guessed he is MUSLIM………….

PS: after longgg time have something to put forward…. this reminded me of a line from book TAMAS i recently read. It was over communal riots : [i] “kabhi kabhi ajeeb lagta hai soch ke ki kaise naam ya pehnava badal jaane se aadmi badal jata hai” …!!

A.U.S.C.U.L.A.T.O.R.S…!!

Filed under: Uncategorized — Mishra @ 10:14

Just like the first day, we sit here…
hands clasped,

silently watching the world…
without saying a word.

Silently wishing the world to stop…
silently hoping time moves backward,
to the first day we met… to the day when 2 strangers became friends…!!!

 

Missing everybody… 

and as long as we miss eachother, we will meet… AGAIN…!!

The One with Accident… Ambulance… and ICU…!!

Filed under: Uncategorized — Mishra @ 22:53

A tryst with Hospital… an awful experience…

it always is…!!

Ambulance… CT Scan… ICU… Telangana Meetings going around… night outs… and a  long wait…

In the last six months… life has taught me a lot of lessons… and perhaps enough…!!

P.S. : a South Indian flavor to Hospitals…. they have this sign-board outside hospital: “COCONUTS ARE NOT ALLOWED.”

The One With College… Friends… Work… Life… and MOMENTS…!! – 2009

Just a very flashy review of what this year brought to me… actually a little too much of everything… so never wanna forget this…

Lived the best moments in college… some moments which define the worth of the four years we had in college…

had to leave friends… almost forever… (Remember one instance when Tirtha used to come to water cooler to fill his waterbottle at around 11PM during exams and then came into my room to say a ‘Hi…!!’… and then we discussed things totally forgotten… just that that ‘Hi…!!’ extended till 4 AM… everyday… and now its almost 3 months since i have heard him…) … So, left them… almost forever…

Had an AUSCULATOR’s farewell… (everything else abt this day is jst between 10 of us… all the arrangements… ANGARA treat… and that confession session that extended from 9PM to 7AM…)

Met another group of tooooo gooooodd friends: Swati, Shailesh Dewina, Ambika… , a little too early into job life… or a little too late in college life. As i say, kitna acha hota agar hum sab ek hi college se hote… and as swati always replies, kya pata tab hum dost hi nahin hote…!! Signed a pact that none of our fights is gonna extend beyond 1 hour. And this past has helped a lot, warna mein aur swati waqai mein dost nahin reh paate… fought a lot in these last 5 months… and laughed even more…. cracked jokes… saw each otehr crying.. longing for things perhaos not meant for us… made fun of collegues.. and wat not. Many a times i was the reason behind their tears… and many a times it was they who cried when i couldnt vent out…

learnt that HAKUNA MATATA and QUE SARA SARA are the two words that can reson anything going wrong in ur life…

took a resolution that there shouldnt be any contemplations in life… never… although this will make u sad sometimes… but then going sad is far better than being hopeful till the very end and see things going wrong… its always worth a try…

Started watching F.R.I.E.N.D.S. … and thankgod i did…

Read a lot of GOOD books…

For the first time had this amazing feeling of wearig something bought of ur own… Earned for the first time… amazing amazing feeling…

had days when i was happiest and saddest… in a span of 5 days…

Got a better affirmation that i shud be counsellor… or an actor… or an RJ… or anything but what I am today… convinced a friend to stay back at the last moment when she had decided to leave job… and many other times when i pursuaded people to do what they wanted to do…

Learnt how to cook… and for the first time, single handedly hosted a party for 15 people, out of which only 8 turned up… now with little assistance, i can make pulao, chawal, halwa, sevaiyyan, dal, aaloo ki sabji, poori, roti, chhole, pohey, sandwhich, gulab jamun, khichdi, MAGGi, noodles, daliya, sambhar and … and if nothing works out, i surely can call up Dominoes…🙂

Learnt that being good always pays off…

started writing this blog… MOMENTS AND MEMORIES…!!

For the first time, celebrated Ganesh Chaturthi…

First time in life got gifts on Christmas… a sweet cute SANTA keychain… and a FRIENDS FOR LIFE mug… and another one is awaiting… sang christmas carols… hosted a farzi gameshow in office…

Not getting an invite to new year’s party was never so embarrasing… stayed back at home and only comfort was the timely calls from ghar and friends : sudky, dushy, ambika, gautam… and messages ofcourse…

For the first time my saying:  “we are single not by virtue but by choice…!!” is not what i can boast abt myself…

Got back in touch wid many long forgotten friends: shazia, mugdha. Made a lot of net friends : ani, gazal, anuja, ekam…

Also, i prepared a wishlist this yeat and trying to live up to it everyday… as said, no contemplations… and as a part of this wishlist only, i went to office in casuals last tuesday… extreme casuals, when the dress code is extreme formals…
but it was fun.. each and everything on the wishlist is… have completed 3 of the 30 wishes so far..

and there’s lot more… a lot lot…

many reasons y i want this year to end… and infinite others y i want this to continue forever…

and so, in the memory of the great year that is passing by taking away a lot i wanted to keep forever… and giving another LOT i wanna keep… forever… to all the people who ever mattered in my life… i just want u guys to know that:

“I will be there for u, when rain starts to pour…
I will be there for u, like i’ve been there before…!!”
in 2010 and for all the years to come… !!
*******WISHES********
