Day 513

On sunday morning, i woke woke up at routine time of around 10 PM. Had to take a shower and read newspapers quickly as had to go grandpa's house for lunch. Since Scrooge is flying to USA for a longer duration, we decided it would be nice to just meet grandpa. We had some nice lunch and chit chatted for a while. Late afternoon, went to meet an ex-office colleague to hand over certain paperwork for my exit formalities. We spoke at length for nearly 45 minutes about a variety of issues. Came home in the evening and took a nice shower and caught up with School friends for a nice dinner at BBQ kitchen in Bandra. The food was nice and then while heading for home, one of my friend, recommended me to have a Paan with Khimaam. Now Paan, is a traditional Indian Subcontinental Mouth Freshner/Post Lunch-dinner digestive and is actually a beetlenut leaf filled with flavorings and Khimaam is a strong intoxicant which gives you a kick. Now, regular Khimaam eaters wont have any issue, but for a person not used to it, the first time can give you a big time kick. When i had it, i had to actually throw one half of it away as it was very very strong. I felt extremely dizzy, uncomfortable and extremely nauseous. It was so bad that i had to actually vomit atleast 4 times and the friend who coaxed me in to having it had to drop me home right up to my apartment door as he was feeling very guilty. Although the 2 hours were absolutely horrible, but once the effect ran out, i had a good laugh with the friend of mine. Just another experience in life i guess.
Today was the first day of my new job. I reached much before time, and it went smoothly. Its a big big change from a MNC that i was working in. The work style, ethos, policies, procedures, work hours are drastically different. Its a case of i loose something to gain something, but overall, i am satisfied. Although the place is only 20 minutes drive from my house, i had to take the local Bus home and i had to wait 30 minutes to get it. Fucking shit. BEST my ass. The BEST service of bombay is anything but that. Looks like i will have to find a way around that as well. After last night's event i was too pooped out to do anything so i just relaxed, had a quiet dinner as no one is at home and no one will be at home for a few more days and in a while i will watch a movie on the pc and then go to sleep. It will take a couple of days to get used to this routine and then i will push for the gym routine.
And before i end this day, as usual, a lovely poem for my beloved...


A special world for you and me
A special bond one cannot see
It wraps us up in its cocoon
And holds us fiercely in its womb.

Its fingers spread like fine spun gold
Gently nestling us to the fold
Like silken thread it holds us fast
Bonds like this are meant to last.

And though at times a thread may break
A new one forms in its wake
To bind us closer and keep us strong
In a special world, where we belong.

Good night and God bless you.
