Bits from here..Pieces from there [Part - VI]
That’s what I can say all about me and myself!!! The stone has started to roll… I hope the mosses will vanish by this time….
A routine tour to Puri sparked up a surprise gift again – the JOINING DATE!!! After a long hiatus wait, finally TCS thought of wrapping me off to Thiruvanthapuram. And, for the first time.. I’m going to leave all my near and dear ones… for a one and a half month tenure. A mixed feeling.. persists. Running around to complete all those paper works.. still a long list of formalities needs to be carried out.. and this has devoid me of keeping track of the world around me (many a times!!!) Well.. if things fall right on track from this day onwards, 23rd of November would get sketched in my career graph with prominence.
Weak minds do get superstitious when co-incidences are so random!!! And it is bound to be!!!! Whether there is some supernatural force operating or not, I do not care… but somewhat I feel.. the superstitious belief pinches me!!! He was the one who could select the right path for me – I knew. And yes, he did. Though, I had some initial hiccups … (maybes still I have ).. but I’m sure that whatever has been decided is for my own benefit only. Now, I’m really looking forward to those 45 days…. it’s going to be a new phase – none of the moments encountered till date . How the mind adapts.. how the soul respond.. how the whole system gets managed.. I’m really counting on that!!!
During the trip, I completed “ 2 States” by Chetan Bhagat. Well… do I criticize? Should I criticize the same mould ? Should I criticize it for being more of a Bollywood script? Should I criticize the author and his creation? Not really. Because despite knowing all.. I purchase and read. And I know, I will continue to do so. Side by side, going through Arvind Adiga’s “Between the Assassinations” was quite a bland experience. Conventionally, expectation rises..and anybody would have preferred a better reading extravaganza after “The White Tiger”. But the second book disappoints big time!!! I had to quit it mid-way!!! But I still have my expectations quite high – for both of you. So….
Finally moving on towards the scenario and bits-n- pieces from here and there .. I was so happy to see Mohunbagan winning!!! Nope.. not a hardcore fan.. and thus my sole reason of happiness was not the victory!!!.. But the fact that newspaper had some other things to publish in their headlines !!!! Maoists here..Maoists there… Holy crap!!!! If a magic spell could have churned out to terminate the whole matter at this very moment… phew!!!
Umm.. I need to sign off now.. time to proceed with other jobs. I’m quite happy now.. I could return back here and pen down the proceedings. For the last few days.. it was really pinching me.. the fact that I was not being able to give time to my space!! Well.. as days are passing, I can visualize it would be quite tough to return here ( which I previously did.. quite often).. but surely I will turn up.. whenever I can.
Like to wish all the very best … to me… for the coming days… and yes to India too… they need to hit it back to the Aussies on the 22 yard…!!!!
