Maid in Mumbai

Aruna (If you haven't read about her before, click here), suddenly asks me "Didi, can you lend me 150 Rs today?"

This is quite surprising because she never asks for money in middle of the month.

I tried to inquire about it, " What Happened? everything okay?"

She answered "Yeah Di, I just need to go to parlor. Haven't got my eyebrows and waxing since 2 months."

:O :O :O

Terribly Tired

Today is one of those days when I feel frustrated with my colleagues. Certain people are there who always shout to bring in some changes...changes as in make things automated...make everything accessible..and when we do that..they are one to say that why the hell have you made life so complicated for us???

Its so emotionally draining when you give in 200% of your dedication to bring about changes and people reject it without even listening to you. I have been experiencing this from past couple of weeks. No matter what I do I am never appreciated but only looked down upon as if I am hurting somebody's ego. At the end of the day I feel I haven't done anything and I am useless.

I really wanted to take break from work. But the sense of responsibility to this company never lets me take that break. I really don't know what to do. I want to work, but not when I see some horrible faces. Even when I hear their voice, I feel like hiding myself in a corner...

What shall I do?? I know my ranting will not help...but this is only place where I can vent out my anger....

As I step outside
A drop of rain falls from the clouds above
Reminds me of the beautiful world around me

I see people running helter-skelter
Moms holding hands of kids
Running to reach home fast

I see the 5 year old kid
Laughing his heart out
Holding an orange candy

I see the birds flying back to their nest
Trying to cover their babies
Pleading the sky

I let my fingers reach out to the drops
Wanting to wash all my fears
I surrender myself to the beauty of nature

Car, Van and Letter!!!

Yesterday, after returning from gym, a Blue Dart van was parked right in front of the colony gate. I was already in spoiled mood, and thus literally honked the car horn for 2 minutes. The driver was not at all in mood to even start his van. I muttered all nonsense for him (silently :)).

After parking the car, I enter my home. My maid informs me, that we have got a courier. Guess what it was Anand's admission letter, which he has been waiting for since past 7 days...

Yeah, it was delivered by Blue Dart!!!

P.S.: Due to some reasons, we have decided not to move to Singapore...So yeah...I can still have panipuri every Sunday!!

Silent Love

Take me to a drive today
Far on a lonely road
With gentle breeze swaying my hair
We shall sit on the bridge over the river
To talk endlessly through the eyes
Under the open sky and shiny stars
Hold me tight
To let me hear the sound of your breath
Near my neck
And touch of your fingers on my skin
Caressing me gently
Let me stare deep in your eyes
Allow me to awaken what’s asleep in your mind
And when the sun rises
Let the rays enlighten the love within
Then I can say I have known the beauty of true love

Missing Links

Loved the below lines in "Almost Single" by Advaita Kala:

"Sometimes, life is like a book. You can get so desperate to reach the end of the story that you conveniently skip a couple of chapters. However, when you do get to the end, you're left with this icky restless feeling, and you know that you need to go back to those missing chapters before you can close he book."

Isn't it so true?
