School’s over, summer is here! #AtoZChallenge

The sun has decided to burn out everything in sight this year. The temperatures are already soaring high & it’s only April yet. It’s a tough job to leave home between 11:00  – 16:00 hr. And for people like me whose office timings are late, its cruelty. I miss my school ‘s summer vacations when I could laze around whole day. 🙁

Actually, I am jealous of kids as of now, they get to enjoy summer vacations. But, what about us adults, we also need a summer break. Someone please go tell it to all the companies. It was fun being a kid. You could wake up late, sit & do nothing. Those summer camps where we used to enjoy with our friends. Why did I grow up?

My favorite part of summer vacation was enjoying mango delicacies. Eating the king of fruits in all it’s glory. The chirpy evenings were we used to roam around on our bicycles or visit friends at their home. And, the endless binge watching cartoon sessions Tom & Jerry, Flintstones,Popeye, etc, etc…

Our two months vacations were spent visiting new places. My dad being an avid traveller always had a plan ready for a summer trip. That’s how I got my travel bug. 😉

The only thing which I disliked about vacations was the holiday homework. I used to forget about it till the last week of vacations. The one week before joining school was busy catching up on the assignments & projects. Thanks to my mother & sister I could complete them on time. 🙂

Somewhere along the lines we all grew up and the kid is us lost its way. Let’s decide to be kids again – the innocent & carefree souls who get to enjoy summer vacations!

Do you miss being a kid? How did you spend your summer vacations? Eagerly waiting to hear your summer tales.

 

Gibberish is the new cool ? #AtoZChallenge

Gibberish means nonsensical words or speech. I had learnt this word in school when I had taken part in a summer camp. And we used to hear it all the time from our teachers when they scolded us. ‘Stop talking all gibberish jibber-jabber’ !

The trend has taken over to speak gibberish & people can actually decipher it pretty well. I am amazed by it most of the times. ‘Coochie coo,what’s the plan for this weekend?’ – I have encountered this conversation amongst fresher in my office endless number of times. I try hard not to chuckle.

‘Googly whoosh you have flawless skin’.Or after a great performance in show hearing words like ‘supercalifragilisticexpialidocious’. Tsk-Tsk, how do you even comprehend what is being said?

As kids we used to have secret languages around grown-ups. But I outgrew it eventually. Maybe I have become an old soul! Do you speak Gibberish ? Or understand it easily ? Eagerly waiting to here your thoughts on it !

Why am I Nocturnal ?

It’s 12:50 am when I have started writing this post. So, you might have some idea of what I am talking about. Few people don’t like to sleep at all. Na, I am not one of those. I love my sleep, wake me up when I am asleep & unleash the monster 😀

We, by we I mean ‘Secret Society of nocturnal’,have signed a bond to stay awake at odd hours. We stay up to create our own secret world & enjoy the silence of night. The noise of the day breaks the calm. Silence keeps us sane to work on all that we want.

Family & friends alike, ask me why I stay awake at night. To be honest, I don’t have an answer for this. Mind you, it’s not an easy job that I have undertaken. It has required constant efforts of last 10 years. Dedication & Perseverance ! Try it for yourself.

Just Another Day…NOT !

Once in a while you feel that whole world is conspiring against you. And yes, you are not mistaken. That’s exactly what is happening. Nothing works out as it is supposed to be. You realize that you are having worst day ever possible.

You have an early morning meeting in office but you wake up late (after hitting snooze on alarm n times). Rather than sharing the workload, maid decides to increase work exponentially. Well she also has the right to do things as per her wish.

The microwave does not work as the power backup in your apartment does not support it. There goes your plan to have quick breakfast. And you think you can still manage to reach office on time. Beware, day has just begun!

At last you are ready to leave the home. Grab your keys, run to the parking, start the vehicle. But, the damned vehicle does not start. You know this is not the end of the world. So, you plan to hire a cab. Booking a cab through app on phone is another battle in itself. To add to the woes the cab driver gets lost on the way to pick you up. Another twenty minutes have passed & no signs of the cab. Somehow you reach office, actually running around half of the campus & people staring at you.

After the entire morning struggle you realize the meeting will begin late. Finally you take deep breath. Some solace. The day is not that bad even. You can attend meeting on time & you are back to your chirpy self….Yippee!…Until you realize that you are stuck on the same issue since long time & have no idea what might be wrong. Oh! So from chirpy to grumpy again in few minutes. Keep sulking throughout the day. Blaming you or maid or the cab driver or that late night internet surfing session last night. The day drags to an end.

Again, begins the battle to hire a cab and reach home. Top it with some evening traffic & the potholes filled road. You are at a short distance from home stuck in traffic, just then the Rain God decides to pay a visit. Since you have the laptop you cannot just leave the cab and walk home. Why me? Why? That’s what you are probably thinking. Have patience, the day is about to end. You will be home soon & can enjoy your cup of coffee. Out of the blue your cook also declares that he is taking a day off. Seriously, does everything has to go wrong on the same day?

After all the trouble throughout the day Mr. Husband decides to be the savior & takes you out to for the dinner. You are still suspicious of what new chaos is waiting to happen. But nothing goes wrong. Enjoy your dinner followed by ice-cream & a long drive. Finally the day ends on the happy note.

The day has not ended exactly – you log onto Facebook after returning. Then five minutes of surfing internet turns into fifty & you again sleep late. And the cycle continues…

(Note – I still think that Facebook is at fault because it made you sleep late & then you missed your alarm & we know the story after that.)

Independence.

Every living being craves for independence. Every individual has his own definition of independence. Independence gives you the feeling to be free….free from boundations…free to do what u want….
Wid Independence Day jst around the corner, how independent do we Indians think v are ??

For some independence may mean to be financially independent. For some freedom is when they buy just two meals a day. For them this is freedom, freedom just to earn enough. For others more financially secure, freedom is when they can buy anything they want. Being financially independent gives us a sense of controlling things.

Independence can be when you are free to chose which career you want to pursue. For a high school student it means to chose a subject of his choice. For a graduate it is freedom to chose the area in which he wants to specialize. For an employee it means to be able to work on his choice of projects. And yet there are so many people who are  forced to work.

Freedom is also when you get chose your own friends and relations. You become free to move away from relations that break your trust. Being socially independent helps you in having your own identity in the society. You are not influenced by sumone to like a person on not. You have ur own views abt people. Not all get so lucky !!

Think of a bird in cage that is never able to fly away. The bird has to live its whole life at the will of its master. Most of us wont be able to survive these kind of boundations.We all enjoy freedom of movement. No one likes to be restricted to one place. You wont like if someone orders you to stay at one place. We can make our choices to live anywhere we want (legally ofcourse !!!). But still we have slaves who can never enjoy such independence….

The independence which we enjoy the most is freedom to speak our mind. Everyone has his own views and beliefs. But we tend to forget that our words may hurt others sometime. Freedom of speech does not mean that we speak ill of others. We all have rights to present our thoughts but we should think twice before speaking. What abt so many ppl who are never allowed to express how they feel ??

These were just few of the many freedoms which we can have. But how many people actually get a chance to live independently ?? Every year we celebrate our Independence Day. But have we ever really thoughts of all those who cannot enjoy even small liberties in life…..
