Day 379

Its just tuesday. This week, somehow, is going much more slower than the other weeks of the year. Its also getting nice and cold every day. With the temperature reaching 14.5 degrees Celsius, ideally it should be awesome. But the major factor of being uncomfortable comes from the fact that there is so much smog. Being one of the most polluted cities in the world and situated at the coast, you dont tend to enjoy the cold weather that much. But anything is respite from the heat. The work was getting so much pressurizing that i had to finally write in to my manager and give him my point of view to reduce my workload. And very surprisingly, he actually said yes to what i wanted to reduce in the workload. Well, he can surely count on me for any ad hoc work that he has and i will surely get it done (I still do that). I came home from work and after a lot of days, i had lunch. A nice lunch of Pav Bhaji minus the pav. And for a couple of hours i slept in the afternoon. And now, after finishing writing my blog, i will head to bed again.
Boy, its getting lonelier by the day and even more so by the dusk.

And a beautiful poem, again for someone special...just read the lines...very very very beautifully written....

Take this kiss upon the brow!
And, in parting from you now,
Thus much let me avow-
You are not wrong, who deem
That my days have been a dream;
Yet if hope has flown away
In a night, or in a day,
In a vision, or in none,
Is it therefore the less gone?
All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream.

I stand amid the roar
Of a surf-tormented shore,
And I hold within my hand
Grains of the golden sand-
How few! yet how they creep
Through my fingers to the deep,
While I weep- while I weep!
O God! can I not grasp
Them with a tighter clasp?
O God! can I not save
One from the pitiless wave?
Is all that we see or seem
But a dream within a dream?
