6th July

11:30 AM
What a perfect day for a stroll or a long drive...
But I have set targets to achieve today and I can't afford leisure right now.
I want to go out and feel the breeze wantonly gamboling with my hair,drops of rain falling on my face like a lover's kiss.
But back to work..
Have to trace the Etymology of a few words...

I am not working in the AIB lab today...some problem with the Internet.. using the AITTM one and am not quite comfortable...
They usually don't entertain students from other departments but the lab administrator referred me so I can work in peace(?)

It sure is noisy and I am finding it difficult to concentrate

I can still run away..to embrace the monsoons

No !The faculty is leaving for a tea break and has asked me to look after the lab while they are gone...ok now..added responsibility.
Hmm..bye-bye rains..come again another time...

"Little Lara(my nickname) wants to play
but has to wait for another day..."

12:45 pm
Have to go out, accompany a friend to sector 1.
I usually welcome the monsoons facing the sky with my arms stretched out.An onlooker might think I am crazy...but I hope I never grow too busy to perform the ceremony.

I picked a cup of coffee from the canteen and sipped on while I walked in the drizzle.
The drops fell in the paper glass and I had to finish it before it grew cold..quite a challenge.
Did u ever do it? (Or I am the only crazy one around here?)
Then u probably know the pleasure of licking a mango zap ice cream in winter nights....


01:15 PM
B-37,Polyplex Industries...
Met Mr.Sinha..one of the Senior managers there..
I could almost touch the pride in his voice when he said it was a 7 crore enterprise when they got started with just 9 people and 2 rooms..
now it spans to 450 crores,2500 employees..and he is soon to be one of the GMs.

But it was not only his personal achievements-
I could imagine how would it would be to grow together...
Looking out of the glass window I felt the pulse down below..it was not a matrix of buildings anymore
it was not just a business enterprise..it was a family...
a growing family...

He had asked me about my ambitions...when I intimated it to him..he said immediately.."You will do it! I can see it in your face.It is almost written there"

Maybe he was just being nice...
but I could feel my jaw stiffen while I talked of my dreams..
No failure is fatal...but this time I have staked everything.
Even Murphy's Law ("If anything can go wrong, it will") can go wrong sometime.....
And so says the eternal optimist in me....

Hope floats
Ambitions ablaze
Dreams die
And are reborn
Time trickles
Days go by
But in the end
Life goes on

Nicely interwoven...

Or I am the only crazy one around here?>

Oh no ...

I enjoy smoking in the rain ... that's quite a challenge too ... you have to hide it between your palm and your fingers ... commonly called in Bong circles as "tapping" ...

Cheers :)

You are not the only crazy one. As Samik has already demonstrated there are loads of ppl like u arnd. And I can vouch for the authenticity of his claim.

I used to take a walk everytime it rained (I was in the middle of a desert or least close to it and it didnt rain much), a long time ago. The first impact of the drops of water on my skin was orgasmic. And I love the smell that emanates from the earth ... very "Motherly".

@samik

DJ, that "tapping" thingamijig was a new one, as in, I didn't know it had a name.

So what is you ambition, if I may, and how much have you staked on it that you're even willing to ignore Murphy?!!!...
By the way I've blogrolled you, and you can doublecheck at http://arkuscaesar.blogspot.com(to defy Murphy..you need practice:D)...

Me and Murphy are old acquaintances, my email signature reads:

If you can risk all your winnings,
On one turn of pitch and toss,
And lose, and start at your beginnings,
But never breathe a word about your loss.

which let me add is very clever..and therefore not my own..Kipiling actually..:D

If the words are sincere they cut, and cut deep. Your words do that. Simple, straight and coming from the inner core, your words tell who you are. Getting you now. Biological age really doesn't matter. Even the young can measure up to the old, and maybe even surpass the aged. Carry on writing. Looking ahead to reading more from the wonderful YOU. -- Abhay
