parting begins..

Aaj finally aone poney daam mein ghar ka saaman apne hi building ke logo ko dene ke liye tayyar ho gaye hum log. most of the furniture is sold out. rest we gonna move to our family. Ghar ka saaman kitne enthu aur pyar se collect kiya tha, vo bhi bus pichle 1.5 years mein- ek baar bhi nahi socha tha ki itni jaldi jaldi move karna padega. 

lekin movements have always been exciting for me especially coz i come from a defence background. bus ek baat decide ki is baar, ki ab jyada material collect nahi karenge.. coz once u start doing that u get attached to each piece in the house.. and it is not easy to see them getting waste or when u have to give them off to ppl for prices less than half of what u invested. not only the cost part, thinking of giving my plants away - i feel sad!

anyways, change is constant might be a cliche but it definetly gives us an oportunity to make new beginnings with all the learnings of past both on personal front as well as professional. Next two days are going to be hectic doing final packing & moving, I still hope to spend them well.. at least i will try.

words of wisdom

``The most happy marriage I can picture would be the union of a deaf man to a blind woman.'' -- Coleridge

Officially Married now.

So finally we get our marriage certificate today after having been married for 1.5 years.

but look at the irony.. i have two long months ahead of staying single :( and thats gonna be the first time that we wont be with each other after being married. While I plan to have a blast (& I am sure he will do that as well), there are countless random things jinki kutch aisi aadat ho gayi hai ki only coming months will reveal how they are going to be.

and then the good part is that i will be spending this time with my parents. After dads posting out of mumbai, we hardly got to stay with him even when I wase there with mom n manu before shaadi.

having said all that.. the fact to rejoice at the moment is having got the marriage certificate for which everyone in family had been reminding us all this while. congratulations to us!!

Mind over Matter?

A colleague of mine did something today that has me thinking about it still. Finding an apology mail, suddenly out of the blue would do this to most of us; it says, its for all those times when she hurt me. More than surprised, for she thinks she hurt me, I am trying to understand even if she did, why did she?

I hope everything is alright there and whatever is going on in her mind, gets off her mind soon as I never felt hurt or anything. I tried conveying that to her & in reply she says, my alternate career could be writing as I love doing that. So she has plainly refused to believe me.

Reason for such reaction from me could be due to my being less observant and attentive than few others round, about certain things. But the fact is- most of the times, its immaterial for me.

Some say its my 'no care' attitude. Could it be that? perhaps yes! Should I care about people who want to hurt me? I am only giving an example.. but when I am engaged in my own world, I am a happier person so why would I get entangled into these issues n get hurt?

Some also say that I have a terribly big eye for detail. I myself am a victim to that. My workplace believes in playing with ones strengths rather than weaknesses. But they also convinced me that your strengths could be your biggest weaknesses if not worked upon carefully. That’s some gyan from 'gallups strengths finder' but yes I do have not one but two big eyes for detail. Ask Amit.

He says my problem is that I take everything literally whereas his statements are most of the time symbolic. Now I don’t remember what was the exact issue that triggered this realisation between the two of us but how could I be so dumb to do so? of not understanding what he really means.. Here again! I feel like telling myself- Does that really matter? I am the way I am.

With a mind full of all such clutter, here ends the day and time for me to try some good night sleep.
