Day 519

The biggest challenge one has to face when one joins a non MNC, is that, specially in India, its a 6 day work week. After years of working 5 days a week, it was a major pain to get up and go to work on a 6th day. And knowing that this is going to be the scheme of things in the next of many more weeks, can be mentally very taxing. But, in order to gain something(Specially in my case of getting a routine life back), one has to carry on. So that i did. It was an usual day of training except that after 3PM we ended up doing nothing till 6:30 as there was an emmergency meeting called in office, for god knows what, and there was no one to train us. So we decided to use the time to get to know each other well and exchange phone numbers and email addresses. After work, i came home and was on phone to a couple of friends from office who wanted to, just generally, chat up with me. Very kind of them. In the night, went out for a movie with Mitul. Fast 5 or The Fast and the furious part 5. Mitul was desperate to see a good english movie and didnt want to sit at home. We went to PVR and saw the movie. I havent seen the previous 4 parts but it was no issues understanding the 5th one as its like a routine action film. Came home and then chatted late with a friend over the phone, although it was just via SMS.
Sunday was normal. Newspapers, channel surfing et al. However, today, i was feeling extremely low and depressed. Partly, being mother's day in most parts of the world, i was missing mum. Partly because i was missing dad as well. Partly because i was missing......someone else, someone very special as well. Sometimes in life, you want to be away from the madding crowd. But that does not mean you want to be by yourself. Sometimes you want to be with that someone special. So i guess all this took a toll on me on an emotional front.
Hence i decided to do what any sane person would have done. Just go to sleep for a while. It was a nice afternoon nap for an hour or so. I was feeling, somewhat, even more low and depressed and sad in the evening.
So i decided to do what has been in my genes through my mum, dad, grandpa, grandmom and even parts of purav...just go out of the house. In my paternal side of the family and my mum as well, there is a trademark in the genes. No one likes to sit at home whole day. Specially Mum and dad. And now Purav. And somewhere i could emphatize with them today. I was feeling so low that i just took off for a drive and went to meet an ex office colleague. Meeting him was mainly to hand some paperwork, but majorly because i just wanted to be out of the house. I felt a bit better. Then i got a black forest cake for my current office colleagues for tomorrow. Most of the restaurants near my house were crowded so i opted for home delivery. Waiting for food, i spoke to the fat guy for a while on the phone.
Somewhere, over the last many months, whenever, any one of us is feeling very low, we always call each other up and speak out.
And i felt more better than what i was in the evening. Had a late dinner and then it was back to surfing. And as i leave for the night, i wish to put up this pic of my folks.
Guess with Mother's day and all...this would be apt.

Dad and mum, wherever you are, Scrooge and me will always miss you. We may have had our share of differences and at times we may have conspired to even strangle each other, considering how stubborn all of are/were. We have had our shares of the most stupidest of fights over the most trivial things. But deep down, all of us know that we loved each other a lot and we have always been, in the end, one small happy family. The rest of the world be damned and all differences aside.

Love you guys...forever and beyond.

And for my beloved....this one's for you.....

My love, I have tried with all my being
to grasp a form comparable to thine own,
but nothing seems worthy;

I know now why Shakespeare could not
compare his love to a summer’s day.
It would be a crime to denounce the beauty
of such a creature as thee,
to simply cast away the precision
God had placed in forging you.

Each facet of your being
whether it physical or spiritual
is an ensnarement
from which there is no release.
But I do not wish release.
I wish to stay entrapped forever.
With you for all eternity.
Our hearts, always as one.
