Day 402

I loved it today. Woke up at around 9:30 AM. Had the day off from work today as i have to work on a sunday. Doing this colleague a favor because she needs the weekend off. It was lovely waking up late. In the morning i did the routine stuff. Read the papers, surfed the net and then went off to see Fair Game. A very interesting movie based on a non fiction book. Not to be confused by the 1995 Cindy Crawford starer trash. Then came back home and played online poker and even lost a little over $160000 :)
Its close to my sleeping time now and am about to go for some healthy dinner and then sleepy time.
I also, somehow, seem to think about my grand dad(Dad's dad) today. This day, 23 years back, he left us for heavenly abode. Grandad, or Kaka, as well called him was the coolest person i knew. Unlike many grandfathers of that age, he was a very liberal man. He used to take us on Bike rides, taught us swimming, encouraged us to indulge in outdoor sports, took us boating in the sea and once a month, took us for a hearty breakfast at the club. I remember once, during his last days, along with my grandmom, he took us to the ertswhile oberoi(now the trident) and to the Haffkine institute for a snake show. He even made me touch a live cobra. :)
Kaka was a true rockstar. I am so sure, if he were alive today, i wouldnt have had half the personal issues i am having today. So when Purav was born (Which incidentally was exactly a week before Grandpa's death anniversary and a fortnight before dad's death anniversary), i felt deep down somehwhere, granddad had come back.
And to end, with a beautiful poem for my beloved ....

I loved you-
even now I may confess
Some embers of my love their fire retain
But do not let it cause you more distress-
I do not want to sadden you again.

Hopeless and tongue-tied, yet, I love you dearly
With pangs the jealous the timid know
So tenderly I love you, so sincerely,
I pray God grant another love you so.

Good night!!
