Aaj mere yaar ki shadi hai

I am at a marriage.. Of my schoolfriends. The girl sat next to me for 9th and 10th.. And guy sat in front of me in the 10th class.
Yes, it started there.. And I never knew till my friend told me herself 2 years later.. They have gone through a lot over the last 12 years.. She is an engineer now and he is a doctor. We kept in touch, lost the contact, and are connected back agin. Over the years, I got to know about her father's prolonged hospitalization and demise, his continued support to her inspite of his studies getting affected. Her job in Mumbai, his studies in Pune. His parents opposed, they convinced.. She lost her mother few months back after their engagement .
And today when I see them together, its all so worth. I would have missed this occassion, if it was not her brother- who convinced me I should be here when I called to say sorry- and my colleague who took over all work responsibilities and let me leave office.
I am happy I am here to wish them all the best as they start a new inning of their life..

How interestingly do we behave,isnt it? When it comes to presenting something to our bosses, everyone tries to keep it precise and avoids creation of further questions.. Be it a regulat team member presenting to his Team Lead or Project Manager or a team of TLs/PMs presenting to the Senior Management.. But are the bosses that dumb?

Life comes at you fast!!

Life doesnt stop for you.. Its a known fact.. Before one project has ended, another has already gone critical.. As I am still coping up with sorrow of leaving the first project, I get called for finalizing the case studies for both the days of the weekend..
No, I dont ask for a slower life.. Till I am able to keep up the speed.
When I say Life's a race.. I want to run for myself.. Not to win over someone else.. Its a race.. Not a competition :)

Is it possible to be optimistic all the time ?

I used to get frustrated over lot of things at a point of time in life. Then a friend showed me, getting frustrated is taking me nowhere.. the situation remains the same, the people remain the same and I also stay in the same place.. There is only one difference, I have grown bitter and angry and it does not affect anyone else.

I had to check my emotions and words - continuously - to stay away from frustrations in adverse situations, keep thinking to find a way because there is always a way out. and it has helped me so far..

God, As I enter the world of indefinite, please help me keep my optimism, come what may.. and when I start losing it, I will remind you of this Blog prayer :)

O re manva

O re manva tu to bavra hai
tu hi jane tu kya sochta hai
tu hi jane tu kya sochta hai baavre
kyu dikhaye sapne tu sote jaagte
jo barse sapne boond boond
naino ko moond moond
kaise main chalu, dekh na saku,
Anjaane raaste......

too good...

When I had heard of Twitter first, I used to think "Why the hell do people want to send out their updates all the day long?"

And now ? I find it de-stressing to change my Facebook Status to reflect my thoughts at the moment and read people commenting on it .. It keeps me cheerful although my life has gone topsy-turvywith work and studies :)

Currently looking for Mobile Apps that will help me blog..

(And you thought there was some change from my life :) )
