Bidding Adieu – II

Not so long ago, was I left to glancing through some of the photographs taken by one of my seniors during her days in college. And seeing all those reminded me of some real hard facts about life.

Firstly what comes into my mind was their sense of connect,2-3 years into their graduation year. I wonder if anyone will ever be connected with me, apart from the ones whom I ain’t leaving aside. And today when I look back at those flicks, I have this big bad feeling that we all suck in whatever we have done thus far. 

I try to recollect moments of glory which I thought,might never go off my head and it is then I understand of the sheer lack of it. Every one of the 80 odd people in class had their own 6-7 with whom they were all dilly-dally and that was all about it. And then there are the rest of them who think that all this is just passe.

And as I delve more into this, there is an understanding that comes in which drives this fact that we were and still are a bunch of heterogeneous clowns trying to carve a niche for our existence, by ways and means of mere opportunism and the lack of credibility in relationships. All this from yours truly,who used to laugh when his dad used to tell him that this generation had simply lost it!

Then on the shore Of the wide world I stand alone, and think Till love and fame to nothingness do sink

Report Card from Zulu land

Thus ends the famed “African Safari” for the men in blue. And its been largely good. A fighting comeback to level the test matches after the blood bath at Supersport Park,notching up 2 wins in the One dayers (even though we eventually lost the series!) and clinching the only T20I was in all respects,a better bargain that what was expected of them. 

More importantly, cricket was the winner with some edge-of-the-seat thrillers, a slam bang Yusuf Pathan and some much improved Indian bowling. Morkel was the pick of the bowlers undoubtedly,though Munaf and Zaheer played exceedingly well.Amla lived up to his credentials and so did Kallis for the home side.The real surprise package for the visitors being Virat Kohli and Yusuf Pathan, both of whom look certain for a place in the eleven for the World Cup.

Yusuf Pathan

Yuvraj Singh can look forward to running his dad’s petrol bunk, since he was nothing short of a disaster and so was Murali Vijay, the IPL Superman.Maybe they could team up with Micheal Clarke and Paul Collingwood,whose heads are bound to roll soon enough.

Now Playing: Pa

There are some people who you wish,never came into your lives.Though there are certain other people who you wish, came into your life so that there was a sort of completeness into it.

Welcome to my life, Mr.A. Life has a new purpose with your addition,pa. 🙂

Three down from the first 30.. :D

Old adages are just brilliant.There is always this hearsay about this guy named Sonu Lal who did not have anywhere to go to or no one to receive as guests at his home until he got employed. So as soon as this guy joined for work, he immediately had a few unavoidable appointments to attend to. And not even one month into his work, he had taken a weeks off in total. And so when he got his first paycheck, he was reprimanded of the dire consequences – the perils of being the corporate slave.

And I looked around, for stuff such as these around me and I remembered my cousin bro, who had a rather rocky beginning, so to say. And now history repeats itself! It wouldn’t even be a month into my job and I already have a list of off days to be taken. One being the rather surprising and unexpected wedding of a dear friend from Bangalore (an amazing love story behind it makes for another post! 😛 ) and then there is work, back in college thanks to an International Conference (my road to awesomeness!:D ). That makes it 3 on 30. Way to begin! 😛

Bidding Adieu – I

Its almost time. Very much for the final goodbye from college. Even if there are a lot many more calendar days to that,the mind is almost tuned in to live as if these are probably my last moments here.
