Days,whiteboard and having fun...

The days pass by and you dont really get time to think...
Sometimes...you are thinking about the same things again and again...time after time...with aimless conclusions and twisted thoughts...

Its funny how the very same things revolve around our head everyday...and how we get to no where with them...
But we still discuss them, think about them,laugh at them and even cry it out sometimes.

I am surprisingly going through that part of life which doesnt have deep issues related to it...
I am generally joking around about the fate of my job....or about how I am one hell of a responsible banker...and I must say...I pass the day with a lot of smiles...
There are ...of course... those little and small unmentionable frowns during the day...but that hardly counts i think in anyones life.

People tell me that I am generally happy and content these days...which i dont think is completely true...or maybe I dont really understand what "being content" really is...

I have put up this white board in my office cabin, just to write down a "thought for the day", on which I generally write something to reflect upon...(I just thought it mite change some things in the already boring work place...and on it...'complete' me and my cabin )

What feels good is that a lot of customers like the idea...and at times when i forget to change whats written on it...they ask me to change it...and..that response...how ever small and trivial...is something I think i can smile about during the day...

Customer: "What is it that you like the most about writing?"
Me:"Its good to know that when people read it...they feel the same way...makes you feel normal"

On other things...I think I have realized one very important thing...from the incidents which climaxed in the past few days... that ....
you dont really need to love someone with expectations...
When you love someone...you just simply love them...and there are no two ways about it...

To the people who have let gone of their love in the past few days...I salute you!

Its better to simply wait for things to happen...if they are meant to be...
Be good...be true...and i guess...the rest will follow...

Just read a beautiful poem...and I am pasting it here for someone...because it made me remember her...and if I ever get a chance...Ill tell that girl this was for her....



Let's go out and have some fun.
It doesn't matter where or when,
Or what we say or what we do,
As long as it's just me and you.

Let's be together for a while
And get to know each other well,
Exchanging jokes and tales and chatter
Before we get to things that matter.

Let's see what happens when we dance
Across an evening sky, and glimpse
Below the stirrings of a sea
That might--or not--wind-haunted be.

When will people understand this...
that you cant set limits to why you like/dont like a person...Its like air...you either breathe in or suffocate.

I wish I could show people how lucky they are that they are loved...cared for...asked for...and while you can never be sure of what outcome this attachment with a person has...understand its value and just hope it works out...
I cant see my friends in pain...and i dont think anyone can...I feel somehow its my fault I cant make them smile....correct the things that are going wrong...and change circumstances and situations to their best...

I wish parents were not this stringent...I wish they could see the happiness of their children before putting barriers to love...

"People are not bad, circumstances are" -- I dont like this statement, seems like you are excusing the bad people and letting them get away with what they are doing.

On other things...

Politics...apparently has become a household game...I wonder if people get paid these days only to handle politics and bitching at work places...
Manipulate and survive is the rule.

I donot know how long I would survive this...but somehow...leaving a secured job also feels scary...especially in this job market...

Btw...on that note...I wonder who came with the idea called 'SALES'
I wish they would know by now...Selling is an old concept...now a days...people purely BUY...!

Sometimes i feel foolish about the way i think...and I wish someone would just reconfirm to me the reality of life...
There are dreams...things that seem incomplete...hope i get their soon...

an off day

Today was one of those days which is best forgotten...
Sometimes when things go wrong...they just go wrong...

Wasnt really in the best of spirits since morning...dunno why....maybe the lack of sleep past 2- 3 days...
Also the aimlessness and routine at work is kinda bugging me at the back of my mind. Its like the calmness before the storm...

Dunno why....but everything is good around...still there is that hint of aloofness and uncertainty.

I was sitting in office today...people chatting around...their talks ranging from performance to politics to life to love to targets...

And there...at that moment...i felt lost...dunno why....felt the need to be alone...away from the same things again and again...maybe the want of something more than there is...interestingly...these are things which i generally enjoy every day...

Just another off day i guess...

Lets just stop and wait for a new tomorrow.

A recipe for being content.

Somewhere...I think that you are exactly where you should be...
Sometimes...you might feel that you are doing something you really dont want to or are not fit for...maybe you find a perfect mismatch of choices and tastes in what you are and where you wanted to be...
But as Steve Jobs once said...simply...at the end of it...you just have to "join the dots"

I know life is passing by fast...not giving me time to think...asking me to run...
But I also know that it isnt that bad after all...I still have a choice...not many people have that option...

Also, Like today...like at this very moment....when the past seems good enough...this present day will also fall into place into the future...we will join the dots of life...to reveal what and why everything that really happened...did happen for a specific purpose...

I was walking down the road in the afternoon today (my work pretty much sums up to "roaming from one place to another" and which i dont normally do!) and I realised as I was talking to a colleague...who got married recently...that...Love can really take your mind off a lota of things...

You can actually see her content...always having a reason to laugh and have fun...and always something to look forward to...talking about her husband,talking about places to go...and everything under the sun.. (TOUCHWOOD!)

Now...work wise...we are in the same soup (bloody...they give 3 crore as individual targets as if it was 3 Rs and customers carry it everyday in their pockets!) but she doesnt really think much about it...coz there is always something else keeping her happy...and that...i think...is a good thing...

As we walked more... We were discussing about friends...and people I am in touch with these days...
she looked at me and said...
"You know Prasad...its good that you care about people so much..."

I looked at her with a blank face...
"Whom exactly are you talking about??", I asked with a faint smile.

"You know who...! well...atleast it keeps your mind off work!"

And she laughed again.

I wont argue...Marriage does bring a lot of content with it.
