lifeinlines.com check out this thing. a friend from college has started this new web based service where you can pen down your thoughts....emotions using a host of tools like sms, voice in, through the chat clients or through email. essentially your online diary. much more easy to maintain and easily accessible. they are adding on more features but have a look till then.
we had our convocation today , its a good feeling needless to say. mom and dad were there too. no one knows which way life takes a turn. I remember when I was sent to UK for a project for about 2 years. Donkey work....boring clients and an even boring city (bradford). One week into the project I heard boss talking to someone about sending one chap home. And I was at the corner office the next day demanding to be sent back home. Had I not come back from UK so many things wouldnt have happened. Family business, IIMCAL, BeatStreet Holdings. A couple of other life changing events as well but those are history and I really dont wanna talk or think about them.
I heard in a movie. "Life is pretty simple. You make choices and you dont look back". This thing can be life changing. Easy to say but I guess each of us takes his own time to learn this. Some may never.
And another thing happened today. Loose motions!! I counted and it was 17 times!!! By the end of it I was all drained out and had to drink several pouches of ORS (oral rehydrate) to just stand. I had to as I was in the convocation ceremony.
Now I understand why everyone is talking abt importance of water and its shortage :-). Delhi will have a water famine in 2020 someone calculated. I dont know how but if that happens .....phew....atal bihari vajpayee once said that the next war will be fought over water. not surprising.
Tomorrow I leave for gurgaon again. I have never liked calcutta. To the extent that I now have preconceived notions about its residents also but thats ok I can live with those and hope that I dont get to come here again. May be after 25 years in the alumni reunion. I am already looking forward to that but 2033!!! too long and I am sure we are gonna see too many new things by then. Anyways our generation has seen the Internet, the oil wars, and we will see the water wars , india shining and rising and what not. Its been a mix so far. Someone was saying that the last 2 years have rather gone through quickly and I was thinking about the past 28. Rather fast. So life is short. And there are so many things to do or have.
It was only yesterday that I was thinking of writing one last article here on my blog. Aaj man kar raha tha so just ........
