I was just reading the Orkut status of one of my friends a few days back, and it said, "Contradictions Galore"! Today was the much coveted Valentine's Day, and at the end of this dutiful (or did I mean beautiful?) day, I am inclined to say, "Celebrations Galore, too.."!
There's no specific reason why I have an inclination of saying that, but in general, it has been noticed. Yes, and obviously, it is only a state of mind, but the plethora of events taking place around you makes it so addictive, that you tend to flow with the energy of the ones around!
Today was a good day. Things clearing out - meetings lots of people, good people, nice people (who gets good and nice people these days? Ask me, I do!). And meeting up with lots of friends too.
The day didn't start on the perfect note - as usual, against all my resolutions of the previous night, I woke up late (now you know it's usual for me, but anyhow). Went to clear up a few errands to start the day, and was on the road soon after. Traveled from one corner of NCR to another (not surprising if you know me), for the silliest of reasons. And then met up with friends one after the other.
Obviously again, nothing done without drinks. So after thirst quenching at Cafe Morrison, went off to see the beauty of the places around - South-ex to start with, moving over to Dilli Haat (not a very exotic place, but fun to be around that place, looking at how people see things in their own way), and then went on to Lajpat for the much needed cup of coffee. Had a good time.
Followed it up with a trip to Ansals, and then over to IIT. All these trips to IIT remind me of the gala time we used to have, while in UG. Undoubtedly the best time. No comparisons at all. Period.
Well, to continue with IIT, I was saying that it's very comfy out there - maybe because the time I have spent like that has been most cherishable one; and most learning too. And when I hear the discussions around - one guy is bothered about his girlfriend's interview next week, other one is concerned about his ex-girlfriend's new boyfriend's interview the same week (!!); stories in their nascent stage; stories in their declining stage, with yet another climbing curves in their life cycle coming up - It's just the kind of thing that will lighten up the mood!
Now that I am about to leave, this will certainly be something I'll miss. And obviously the people around will be missed too! Have seen a lot, learned a lot more than I could have thought of, and am taking with me much more memories and learnings that I could grasp, with both my hands. Last ten months have definitely been fun, full of frolic! In and out of office, both.
