Day 400

It was an usual day at office. Truckloads of work. Less Staff. But i still go home on time. Coming back home was not a problem. But driving in South Bombay at a strtech of about 8 KM took nearly an hour. The traffic was ridiculous. And this was just the routine afternoon time when its non peak hour traffic. Had to take mom out for lunch at Little Italy. We liked it. Then we saw a nice movie - No one killed Jessica. Based on the real life Jessica Lal Murder case. This movie, although poor in production values, had very good content and first rate acting by the lead star cast. I wouldn't say this is a classic but i can surely say this is a must watch movie. Coming back home, i had to fill petrol in my car and it took almost 45 minutes to reach the petrol pump station. Since i had a kind of late lunch, i was not too keen for dinner. I was also going through the news when it struck that there have been some heavy floods in Queensland, Australia and over 100000 people have been evacuated and the state is in an emergency and they are going to declare are it as a natural disaster. The irony is that my company's financial office is in Brisbane, Queensland, and in all likelihoods, they wont go to work tomorrow. Shows how much the Government cares for its people's lives and so does the company. I remember when we had similar floods in July 2005, the management of our company were more concerned about getting the employees to work and instead of giving them leaves, they were asked to compensate it by working on a weekend. Bloody Bastards. The height, was, when during the 26th November 2008 Terror attacks, when no one was willing to step out of the house, they did the same thing. I seriously doubt they would have had the balls to do that in a EU Country or even Australia (Where the HQ of my company is located). I dare them, i double dare those mother fuckers to do that with them.
Anyway, i do not want to spoil my mood because i am visibly upset today over lot of things and my company work is the least of my priority. Somewhere down all of this, i have begun to believe, my house, now resembles Shutter Island. I sincerely wished that someone i love the most(And i hope that person is reading this) would have been with me, right now, when i need that person more than anyone else in the world. I would have ensured that , as i have kept saying in my previous blogs, that it would have just been the 2 of us versus the world. Screw the house that i am living in and screw everything else. Just the two of us, some place far off from the maddening crowd.

Though i do not know what, the future, holds for me, i just hope things go back to what it was. I seriously hope.

An ode for you, my beloved, my precious...


She walks in beauty, like the night
Of cloudless climes and starry skies;
And all that's best of dark and bright
Meet in her aspect and her eyes:
Thus mellowed to that tender light
Which heaven to gaudy day denies.

One shade the more, one ray the less,
Had half impaired the nameless grace
Which waves in every raven tress,
Or softly lightens over her face;
Where thoughts serenely sweet express
How pure, how dear their dwelling place.

And on that cheek, and over that brow,
So soft, so calm, yet eloquent,
The smiles that win, the tints that glow,
But tell of days in goodness spent,
A mind at peace with all below,
A heart whose love is innocent!

I dont know if this is a repeat, but i mean each and every word of this poem.
