Day 60

Well, there was quite a jump start for the day. The transport department of my company screwed up again. Had to spend the first hour of my day co-ordinating between transport and employees. One day, if i ever quit the company, i will ensure i blame transport for all the ordeals that i have faced at work. So, the day goes well. It was a colleague's birthday and she gave everyone yummy chocolates. Towards the end of the day, surprisingly, one of my team manager and me had a good 15-20 minute catch up. Got to know more about the human side of him. Interesting.
Today, i was wondering about a question that was posed to me by one of my team members. The team member asked, "Milind, When was the last time you were most happy ?". Well that is a really interesting question. And did i have an answer ? Well, No. I mean, When was i most happy ? Really ? When ?
The Day i was born ? My 1st day in Senior School ? The day i passed 10th Standard Board Exams ? The day my team won the football trophy in 1993 ? The Day i proved i was not a bad cricketer by making my building team win ? The Day i first smooched a girl ? The day i went on a proper date with a beautiful girl ? The time i officially proposed to my girlfriend ? The day i hugged her first ? The day i kissed her first ? The day i got married ? The time when i first made love to someone ? My Honeymoon in Mauritius ? All the good times i spent with my wife ? The Day i got promoted ? The day i got my 1st proper 4 figure salary in my bank account ? The day i got my current job ? The Day i moved to Business Sales Support Department of my company ? The time i bought tickets for the 1st weekend show of The Titanic with my 1st salary ? The time i got my first hard earnt money ? The time i met Uncle Pai for the 1st time and got 1st prize in a quiz competition ? The time i had close to 1 Lakh Rupees in my savings bacnk account ? The Day i got my first appreciation call ? The Day i got my 1st job promotion ? The time i get my long leaves approved ? The time i go for vacations out of bombay ? The day i learnt to drive a car on my own ? The day i baked my 1st cake ? The time i baked a cake for someone i had a major crush and she loved it ? The day i came so close to telling "I love you" to someone (But eventually didnt do it ? My first cricket match in a stadium ? My first foreign Trip ? My first video game as a kid ? The day i moved to my new house in 1994 ? The times i spent playing tv games all night with Dad ? All the moments spent with Dad ? Swimming sessions with Grandpa ? Watching the trains at my family house in Udhana ? Sitting inside a diesel engine and blowing the horn ? Learning Boxing ? My year learning computer hardware at Jetkings ? The Day i completed Engineering ? The 1980s ? My 1st new years party ? The first time i had alcohol and hit the dance floor ? The time i was drunk and said "I love you" to an old school crush ? The day i passed my 7th standard maths and science re-exam and save a year, or else i would have flunked ? And the list goes on and on and on and on and on..
So i can conclude, maybe there was never one moment in my life when i was most happy.
But i will also conclude that God has been very kind that despite all the turmoils and turbulent times that i have gone through, somehow everything has always turned well. Whether i actually got what i wanted or not is secondary but the resolution was always what was needed and what was right, in the long turn.

Good night.
