Ramblings…

 

Just random things on my mind…

Here is an sms I got from my former boss…

 

I m sitting and thinking hard about life…

How its changed from a simple college life 2 strict professional life…

How pocket money changed 2 huge monthly paychecks… but give less happiness…

How few local jeans changed 2 new branded wardrobe… but fewer occassions to use them…

How a single plate of samosa changed to a full Pizza but hunger is less…

How a bike with petrol always in reserve changed to a car always full tank but less places to go….

How a tea by roadside changed to Barista but it feels as if the shop is far away….

How a limited prepaid card changed to a post paid package… but we dont feel like using it…

How a general class journey changed to a flight.. but less vacations 4 enjoyment….

 

May be this is the truth of the journey called LIFE !!!

For a large part of the match I hoped it would rain, lighting would strike and the match would stop… I just didnt want a result…. No I am not talking of cricket where we were 2-1 up and a tie would suffice as a series win…. I just thought yesterday’s final match was heart breaking… I didn’t want any one to lose…. but one man had to win… !!!!!

 

I know Roger wanted it bad… but the way Roddick played…. I felt so so so bad for him… at the end everyone was comforting him but really I m sure he wanted to just go away…. But he played the most wonderful match and just two lose shots cost him the Championship… !!

 

For a change, first time in my life… I felt sport is cruel… No one deserved to lose… really….

 

I always believe there has to be a winner and a loser in sport but yesterday it really felt wrong… 

 

Do we always need to have a winner ?? Cant it be a tie ?????.

Since two years now I am in MP and I have been noticing our Chief Minister of MP since 2005, year after year performing so so many puja’s and conducting Bhandara’s to appease the Rain Gods !!! Everyday I see pictures of him and his missus in newspapers trying to appease the Rain Gods…

 

Will some one talk some sense to him and tell him that had he gone on a tree plantation drive for these 5 years… He would not have had to conduct any pooja’s now and would have been able to concerntrate on the state affairs… !!!

 

I come from a small town, where flying kites was a huge problem because of so many trees that would surround us… this comes from the small town chokra… for Indore a city of such huge population the number of trees in Indore are appalling to say the least. What happened to simple logic we grew up with ….

Vriksh vaavo..

Varsaad Laavo..

(Meaning Plant trees, bring rain..)
