Buddies

Had a long chat with Sumit via Yahoo! Messenger. He's in Africa!
Ujwal called. Initially, I mistook him for Santosh; but his ringing laughter was an instant givaway! It was wonderful talking to him after so long a while.
Santosh called. He's at Manilal's. We are supposed to meet at The Forum tomorrow.

What a dull thing your blog is turning out to be. I mean, Deep, look at the quality of your postings. None of them inspire one to continue visiting your blog. It merely appears as log of the inane things happening in your life. All these postings seem to have lugubrious feeling associated with them. They seem to reflect the unfathomable misery that seems to stalk you where ever you go. Man, do you reckon that only you have problems in your life?

You complain about SAP being too tough and boring. Man, the technology I have been put into, besides being boring and tough, is also an obsolete one and greatly hampers my chances of ever being able to leave this company for better avenues elsewhere. Now how does that sound? Feeling better already? I usually reach home at 9:30 in the night, much later than you do, right? Now did that make a good read? I bet it didn't.

When there was no one reading your blog, you did manage to conjure a few epistolary masterpieces. But look, now that you have a sort of a fan following, you seem to be depressing us with some hogwash and that too written as though you were coerced into scribbling them.

I hope my words haven't fallen over deaf ears and that you will make a sincere effort at improving the quality of your postings. As a loyal reader of your blog for a considerable period of time, I demand a better read.

Borrowing these words from one of Anon's comments made on your blog : - Stop throwing these biscuits at us and give us some meat to eat.

You have an escape hatch, MBA! I don't. I'm not complaining but this is a fact. I'm ususlly fervantly predisposed to a lot of things in life. Maybe, I accentuate only the sombre ones.
When it comes to literature, quality is an estranged cousin of quantity.I'm incubating some literature. Gimme some time.

Even Milton would have been reduced to my level of mediocrity had he been saddled with SAP!

The year that was

I'm wearing a rather striking shirt, one that makes me feel like a clown fooling around in a graveyard. Roving eyes latch on to me and make me too conscious of myself. Checkered in red, grey, black and maroon, I've excused myself into donning it and looking silly for two reasons. It's Friday and…more importantly, the last working day of the year. Tailored half-a-year back, I never had the courage to wear it, not until today. It's that time of the year when it's time to reflect on the events that transpired. Last year ended on the worst possible note. Dad had expired and I was numb with shock. The repercussions rippled halfway thought this year. Things were so abysmal initially that I had lost the will to live. Acrid in everything I did, I was immensely angered by time phlegmatically flowing through its cadence. It was as if Dad meant nothing to anybody. What right did people have to live the way they always had when Dad was no more? Why was much of the world still

Post Christmas

The workday didn't have the sweetest of starts. After being made to wait for almost half-an-hour for breakfast in the cafeteria, I was told only when I enquired that there could be no omelette since the heater wasn't working properly. I lost my temper and aired my annoyance not because the heater was out-of-order but because I was needlessly made to wait for something that was just not about to happen. The onus was on them to intimate me and they failed to own up to their responsibility. I find this attitude very irksome. Anyway, the rest of the day was smooth sailing except for a minor glitch that had to be rectified just when I was about to head for lunch. The bay was mostly deserted since most of my colleagues had volunteered for a training. I'm self-taught...thus my being an exception to the mass exodus! Nilotpal is on a fortnight-long leave and I missed him dearly today.
I'm learning the hard way not to trust anyone. Even the one you revere the most may be scheming your downfall. By no stretch of imagination may this seem logical, but who said imagination is limitless?
