Early mornings seem to be a good time to blog, especially when the entire day seems to stretch before you! Which is a bad thing as well (trust a true pessimist to come up with the flipside of a sunrise as well 😛 ). It’s like the PL Mumbai University offers its naive engineering students, stretching so far and wide beyond that you think ‘bahaut time hai, sab ho jaayega’. And then before you know it’s afternoon, you’re sleepy coz you woke up early and that’s the end of all the gloriousness planned with the rising of the dawn!
If nothing else, mornings should make you think of the future and to what lies ahead right? I seem to feel extra nostalgic this morning. Maybe because I spent some great time speaking to Dani Bhai about KJ yesterday…reminiscing about the nothingness of 4 years, text to speech translators and what not. Some memories which’ll never fail to bring a smile to your face! Especially the magic of El Mundo 🙂 . Takes you back some 4 or 5 years…which seems like an era of innocence now!
Also chanced upon this fabulous blogpost: Party like it’s 1989 (I think my mom would like it!) which leads you to a guilt trip including all the sitcoms of 1980’s USA (read late 1990’s India) like the Hogan Family, Small Wonder, Full House and others. Takes you 10 years back in time, to cricket in the evenings, TV in the bedroom with ‘jevanaachi taatali’ (lunch plate) in hand after school so that aaji can watch her soap’s as well, to hours and hours spent in becoming a pro wrestling smark on a dial-up connection!
CAT scores maybe? Came out last night and take you back a couple of years..but what a heady time that is in your life, that period after the results (when they’re good and before the next round which is the GD’s and PI’s). As I told a friend who’s nailed the feline, let the feeling sink in and enjoy the goodness success brings (especially when it’s rare, who the hell would value it if you topped everyday?). The warm afterglow slowly makes way for emptiness as comprehension dawns about the fact that your life so far has been just fun and games, while the world has been DOING the things that seem to matter!
