Day 24

Manic Monday...resuming work after 4 days of Solace. Was about to leave on time when a last minute complicated escalation took almost 1 hour. Somehow in my office, people have this feeling that whenever there is any complicated issue, call Milind who will be the Savior. :)

Then i came home and thought i would hit the gym but was so tired that i just sloshed on the Sofa. Called up The Fat Guy at around 8:30 and had a lengthy one on one conversation about a lot of things that have been going on in my mind for the last 2 days.
Strange are the ways of life, for the last 2 days i was thinking about doing something that would probably help in solving one major issue of my life and suddenly i get a call from someone asking me to do what i wanted to do in the 1st place. Sounds complicated ? Well, who said life was a bed of roses ? For those who know what i am talking about, i hope this make sense. For those who dont, frankly, i dont give a damn.

Anyways, me off to sleep. Will see invictus.

Before i leave,
one small poem by William Ernest Henley:-

The name of the poem is invictus and this is the same poem which gave nelson mandela solace in his 27 years in prison.

Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll.
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.

Good Night.
