A Long Wait....



The fear of loneliness...the fear of seclusion....don't know, what made her do it......

She waited and waited for someone, who would never come back again.....

Hope, that is what she lived on....

She understood the passion in his last kiss....

But she failed to understand its lack of promise......

Alas, if only she had realized that.....

Sometimes its quite foolish trying desperately to relive those memories again...

As times change..n along with it, so do people....

And all you are left behind with....is a handful of memories and unfulfilled promises.....

The Exam Aftermath Crisis..

Holidays are supposed to be a period of relaxation and enjoyment.....well, almost for everyone...

But the case needn't be so if you have just given your 12th boards and with it the inevitable tag along "the entrance exams".

My niece who has just given her boards is my inspiration for this post. Poor soul wanted to have a blast, back home after a grueling 2 years of preparations..But the reality is that what she is experiencing is far from even enjoying a bit..

There are occasional blasts of course... which happens with the arrival of each result...

Has she scored good? Of course, she has...Then what is the problem u may ask??

The problem lies in the fact that some people score better than her...."She scored 3 percent higher than you..how us this possible????"

Or maybe her score was not such that it didn't place her in the topper's list..

well the drama will continue, for a bit more time I guess..




Well this scenario is nothing new and I feel I am just seeing a rerun of something which happened some years back....the only change being I was on the receiving side...Thank goodness, I got admission in a merit seat, without spending a single penny extra than the top rank holders, that I was able to save my soul...

But what is the point I may ask....I graduated in biochemical engg....

40 percent of my class works in the software field...
The other 40 percent works in the banks...

10 percent of the population in my class, make use of what they studied...and work in the related field..

The rest of the 10 percent are either full time home makers or doing completely non- related jobs.

Me, I am one of the last 10 percent , and is working as an editor...If I had foresight , I would have taken up some other stream...

What is the point in getting a degree in one and working in a completely different field...Education is sure necessary..but is being a doc or an engineer the be all and end all of everything?

Everybody may not have this attitude, but a majority of the population definitely has..

2 years of my 11th and 12th standard were filled with tuitions and entrance preparations...Well but my coleg days were the amazing ever..:):)

They say..its sweet 16 and sweet 17....

But I say,

its sour 16,
sourer 17
and
"ahhh!! what a relief 18"...:)

Hope my niece will be able 2 say.."ahhh!! what a relief"..when she turns 18..:)....

Until for 4 more years, when the job placement starts..:):)

Life sure is tough for young people..:)

Faces...faces..n more of them

The days pass and i encounter many a faces... Some don't even last a fraction of a second in your memory...

n some..years may pass...but just a glimpse would have been enough...for a life time of memories...

There should be some reason..some sort of an energy balance equation types...

I wonder....

My Bengali Diaries - A Preface To The End

Been a long time since I blogged...the reason being nothing other than pure lack of time..guess running after my job has made me creatively numb..:)

Anyways, this is the last but one of my Bengali diaries...I am gonna leave this place very soon.. away to a new place and a new life...

I don't know whether i will miss this place.. .maybe time will tell..But what i know is that I am looking forward to my new destination..with eager and hope....

And now when I am nearing the end of my stay here...I have decided to go para gliding...

Given my inherent fear of heights n the probability of vertigo...i don't know whether it will turn out to be an adventure or misadventure..

Will update, if I live to survive the flight...

My Bengali Diaries - part 10

Yet again...and after a long time,i have landed back @ my home in Bengal...and the sudden transition from the comfortable Bangalore weather to the bone chilling winters over here was the hardest part..

But now, settled and finally life is back in track again.....

Well nothing has changed that much over here...except for the new KFC...thanking all my lucky stars..:)

My house is like the way I left is, thanks to my maid (got plans of adopting her,:D)

My doggie "bliss" was missing, but he came back after a few days, only to show me that the remaining part of his muscle less ear has completely off gone by now...n now hes a one eared dog... thanks to another big fight which happened with his enemies...

My calling bell stopped working..so I have hanged a small wind chime kind of bell in its place. Registered a complaint, but in all probability the guy who might had come to repair it,would have gone away when he found that there is no one responding to the calling bell (which is not functional)..believe me, this has happened to my friend....

The place might be the same, but the people around me ..most of them are new faces, thanks to the ongoing "posting in" - " posting out" season, i gotta still find out my neighbor's name...

Enjoying winters...But missing my F.R.I.E.N.D.S badly...the whole set except the 5th DVD has been forcefully given away to my sister (as a result of some serious emotional blackmailing..gotta have more will power,hmph)..the 5th DVD, has been left behind in my DVD player,when I packed up the whole house 6 months ago...at least one is better than nothing....so finding a bit of solace in that...

Welcomed new year in a very nice manner, with a huge party..hope the whole year is as good as the first day....

Nothing else worth writing, except that i can't sleep beyond 7 now..it seriously is a great mystery to me.. why the warm and cozy bed has stopped appealing to me..something is seriously messed up...:(..

Like for now, I am up, having a cup of tea, and typing ..even though my hands are kinda turning numb....so better I stop writing, and try and heat up my hands..:)..

Thats all for now folks,
all in all, life is good....
Might be the magic of the season, but today morning i feel...

my life is perfect...well...almost..:)..:)
