“At one magical instant in your early childhood, the page of a book—that string of confused, alien ciphers—shivered into meaning. Words spoke to you, gave up their secrets; at that moment, whole universes opened. You became, irrevocably, a reader.” –Alberto Manguel

Whispered Monologues

Hey.. Peeps.. :) "If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow." -Chinese Proverb -is what I gotta follow. Life has been a great teacher, always. Mood swing again, mood swings are like pendulum -the more it will swing back the more it will swing forward, and you just can't help it. For a change you can welcome, but then you have to treat them like unwanted guests -and pretend you are not home when they ring the bell.

So these mood swings were knocking so long, I ignored and somehow they caught me from the window -shit! Feels bad. Okay, am fine. No biggie! Um.. lets talk 'bout something else, gifts?? Yea, gifts -I am planning to gift my family something this Diwali, no matter it I have to sell some of my favorite things. Family was always my first priority and always will be. Yea, am bit stupid -as always (shrug). No am not going home, I know am not gonna get leaves this soon -so damn unlucky, so homesick.

Anyways, for new(s) to count: I have started walking from my office to PG again. Music has always been the best companion, and so it makes me walk even after working 9 hectic hours like robot. It takes 30 minutes to reach and whole night to relieve the Lactic Acid from the knees. 7:00 p.m. -busy roads, crowd, noise, traffic, unwanted lascivious looks around and me with my own plans -tough combo. Hmm..!!

Currently reading Thomas L. Friedmans's The World Is Flat, nice book.  Now for me a good day means: Getting good comments for my work I do -when people thanks and appreciate my work, don't forget a single thing, have nice breakfast (only thing that makes my good day incomplete), reach PG by 7:00 p.m., write few nice poems, chat on skype with family, dad calling flashes my screen and sleep by 1:00 a.m.

Feeling like going home, so bad but as per my promise I won't. Every night I sleep promising myself that next day I will make myself feel good, will do somethings good, something I really really wanna do. Time, shit -I don't have time. Again I hope tomorrow to be a nice day, I get up on time, reach on time, work to get positive comments on Monday, make at least 1 person smile, and Gawd knows what not. In this hope, am signing out.. may God bless y'all.. :) (P.S. Image: Facebook)
