TRANSIT



Meet the newest members of my family-- Introducing Jules and Jim.

And they were not the only ones to keep me busy, though. These brats (yes, absolute brats) are getting naughtier by the day. Just to kill your curiosity, no I'm not a cat person at all. I am more of a dog lover and I'm blessed with my Lucky (I named him after that Golden Retriever in the movie My Ghost Dog). He celebrated his tenth birthday this year.

How days just run so real fast. My results were declared, the formalities followed and before I knew, I'd my tickets booked for my journey to the capital, New Delhi. Between movies and music and frequent trips to the nearest city, to filling up countless forms in myriad offices and formats, the days just kept on getting thawed. Many snippets were written and forgotten, paragraphs torn and forlorn.

I'm leaving tomorrow and there are only mixed emotions and feelings. Jules and Jim had been keeping me busy, it is so amazing to see them growing up, playing with each other and their awareness and curiosity which simply gets better and better, may be because of the varied life-cycles, but they grow up and learn faster and better(or so I feel).

A new phase begins and I don't know what is stored for me next. This unpredictability I think, is the one thing that makes life what it is. Till the next part in the sequence of my life kick starts I guess, I'll be more absent here, at least in writing, the reading (of your blogs) will continue though with gaps in between. Leaving home means leaving a lot of things behind but I believe, the biggest discoveries await our next travel back home. Between the somewhat tranquil parts to the city buzz, a milion sweltering changes breed and sometimes, a little un-introspection(or precisely, a post poned introspection) can do one no harm.

I'm ready, ready for it all.

Till then, a hearty time to everyone.

i have Pandurangan Pillai PhD. i named her before i knew that she is a female, since she is responding to the name i decided not to change it. i'll write about her and post her pictures or bit videos soon.

Jules and Jim will be missing you and you would be missing them. Lovely they are. I leave Pandurangan Pillai PhD with my sister when i go out.

i wish what you wish for yourself Sagorika. you have a bright future ahead. i know you from your thoughts and pictures. You deserve the best Sagorika.

Thanks JL. Can't escape change..

Does Pandurangan Pillai PhD have a short name? Just wondering, this is fine. Thanks so much for all the best wishes. It's wonderful, isn't it to know that our thoughts give way to a lot of insights.
I got a job, not something i dreamed of but related to the field .. am still awaiting for the next best thing to happen.. Hopefully..
Take care.

@Shantanu:
No vacation as such. Why does one come to the 'land of opportunities'?

modern exile said...

@still thinking!!!
Thank you, what else can I say??

modern exile said...

@LGL:
Aren't they? Missing them a lot.
i hope I'm happy. Same feelings here for you as well.

@nitesh:
It's not everyday that one comes across a cause for which he/she can stand vehemently. I've been simply fortunate last morning. Thank you.
And thanks for liking the blog (I seriously don't think it's that great, really)
